It's today then ... (Trump thread)

Recommended Posts

He didn’t clarify if the cure to AIDS will be made available outside of America or what the age limit will be for kids whose cancer he is going to cure, but regardless: it got a hell of a pop!

Trump shouting OBAMAGATE about something he doesn't know about just sums the man up. He literally doesn't know what Obama is supposed to have done.

Maybe it needs it's own thread (and someone who is a better writer than me to articulate), but America right now is...a lot.

From the President advocating violence and being censured by Twitter, to the cops again abusing their power left, right and centre, the last few days have felt somewhat different to before when this has happened.

I didn't realise my eldest was reading what I was looking at on Twitter, and obviously the feed has been full of George Floyd and what's happened, and she asked me if any of these police officers ever get arrested for what happens, and I didn't even know what to say.

Fucking awful.

It’s hard to know how to articulate what has happened over the past week. The contrast between the way Trump spoke about the ‘good people’ in the militia who took over a government building a few weeks ago and those protesting the unnecessary death of an unarmed black man is shocking, even for him.

The callous indifference to human life in the comment ‘when the looting starts, the shooting starts’ is horrifying.

Thought you meant Elton John was ballying up for a minute.

This is well worth a few minutes of your time.

I don't want to derail the thread into hip hop and Killer Mike, but he has always been one of the best at articulating anger and rage into a positive message, and this is probably the *best example I can think of that shows that.

*and obviously when he said "First of all, fuck the fucking law, we is fucking raw" on Ooh La La

When all this is over, Kaepernick is going to be remembered in the same breath as Rosa Parks and MLK in my opinion.  He fucking broke a lot of this open by refusing to be silent, refusing to be gagged even as it cost him his career.  It takes people as visible as him to make personal sacrifices to kickstart a movement.

The US really is fuckety fucked right now.  A fascist, half-deranged President, an out of control pandemic, lockdown, race riots and 5 guns per capita.  The possibility of spinning into actual armed conflict on the streets is as real as it's been since the late 60s.

I'm not confident about the elections at all.  I think Trump will steal it, or declare the results null and void.

We're still in the first act.

Uhh. If we're doing this then I'm posting this one! Super appropriate to the situation going on there right now...
