the tiger eats the passenger … goodbye gop …

Some shit just makes me seethe …

trump by hip is everythingDonald Trump is running on nothing but hate …
He started out his campaign there, and he’s been there ever since …
No policies, no ideas, no solutions, just hate, vile, bile and vitriol …
Racist scapegoating … Anti-immigration fanaticism … Misogyny … Nativist stereotyping and bigotry …
It’s all he has to offer …
And sadly, it’s working … like a charm …
Usually when a candidate goes down the “us and them” path, espousing hate and fear, he/she gets run off by the establishment in a party structure … the party, realizing that in the end not only is it a losing proposition, it’s also just plain wrong … by any standards …
But, not this time it seems … it seems that the worse he gets, the more hate filled his rhetoric, the more he demagogues, the faster he rises in the GOP polls … so, he just keeps getting more and more vile, more and more racist, and less and less human …
And his followers just get more and more rabid, and more and more enraptured by this asshole …
The party establishment has either become too weak, or is too cowardly to take this shit on …
This, I guess is what happens when you spend years stoking the fires of anger and fear …
It comes back to bite you in the ass …
Like the old saying goes, ‘when you ride the tiger, eventually the tiger tires of the ride and just eats the passenger’ …
And the only thing he has proved to any thinking person, any person who even understands the definition of empathy, is that he is a tiny, tiny, ugly little man … inside and out … insecure, angry, petulant, narcissistic and despicable …
He is nothing more than a low brow thug …
Every Republican, especially their pundits, are aiding and abetting the Trump-inspired violence and demagoguery …
They keep their criticisms low-keyed so as not to piss off their base, making them as complicit as he is …
They should be screaming in outrage …. They might take heat for it, but when the madness ends, most halfway sane Republicans will respect them for speaking out when it mattered …
Then again, I’m not sure how many halfway sane Republicans still exist …
It may very well be that we are witnessing the end of the GOP as we knew it …
Whether it splinters into two distinct parties or just dies out only time will tell …

Donald Trump on waterboarding: ‘Even if it doesn’t work they deserve it’
Source: The Guardian
Donald Trump touted the benefits of waterboarding in a campaign rally on Monday night, telling a crowd that “you bet your ass” he would bring it back into use.
Addressing thousands of people in Columbus, Ohio, the Republican frontrunner praised waterboarding, an interrogation method that has been called torture. “I would approve more than that” he said.
Trump told supporters: “Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would. In a heartbeat. I would approve more than that. It works.”
The Republican frontrunner then added “… and if it doesn’t work, they deserve it anyway for what they do to us”.

NYT Publishes Scathing Takedown Of Trump’s ‘Racist Lies’
“It’s no easy task for journalists to interrupt Mr. Trump with the facts, but it’s an important one.”
Alana Horowitz Satlin Assignment Editor, The Huffington Post

The New York Times didn’t mince words when it took on Donald Trump’s recent comments about Muslims and other minority groups.
“America has just lived through another presidential campaign week dominated by Donald Trump’s racist lies,” the Times’ editorial board said in a piece published Tuesday, adding later that “if it’s a lie too vile to utter aloud, count on Mr. Trump to say it, often.”
The editorial tore to shreds several of Trump’s most egregious claims, including that an “Arab community” in New Jersey was seen cheering the September 11th attacks. Trump has also warned that Syrian refugees might be ISIS in disguise. And in a moment reminiscent of Nazi Germany, he suggested last week that the U.S. should keep a database of Muslim-Americans.
The Times also lined up Trump’s comments with those of former Alabama Gov. George Wallace (D) and Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.). Like Trump, Wallace and McCarthy were known for their intolerance.
“It’s become a full-time job just running down falsehoods like the phony crime statistics he tweeted, which came from a white supremacist group,” the Times editors said. “History teaches that failing to hold a demagogue to account is a dangerous act. It’s no easy task for journalists to interrupt Mr. Trump with the facts, but it’s an important one.”
