Trump: Report Your Neighbors for Suspicious Activity

He’s a uniter

YouTube

The Trumpenstein continues to go for the absolute bottom of the barrel; this is why he’s leading all the GOP polls, because he’s completely uninhibited about expressing his bigotry and the Republican base loves it. He’s the unfiltered id of the modern Republican Party, degraded and propagandized by years of Fox News and dog whistle racism, now ready for the hard stuff.

And now he’s calling for his cult-like “fans” to inform on their neighbors for suspicious activities.

“The real greatest resource is all of you, because you have all those eyes and you see what’s happening,” he told listeners in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“People move into a house a block down the road, you know who’s going in,” Trump continued. “You can see and you report them to the local police.

“You’re pretty smart, right?” he asked his audience. “We know if there’s something going on, report them. Most likely you’ll be wrong, but that’s OK.

“That’s the best way. Everybody’s their own cop in a way. You’ve got to do it. You’ve got to do it.”

In a truly bizarre inversion of reality, despite his insanely divisive and bigoted rhetoric, he’s telling his audience he’s going to be a “unifier.”

“I call him the great divider,” Trump added of Obama. “I am going to be a unifier. I’m going to be the best protector. I’m going to fight like hell for this country.”

Yeah subject your neighbors to harassment without any proof, you’re probably wrong but hey that’s okay. And by the way, kids tell Uncle Donald if you parents say anything mean or disrespecful about me. FFS he’s getting more and more openly fascist as the campaign heads into winter and the GOP base loves it.

Absolutely built by the non stop fear, loathing bigotry and hate that the GOP has spewed for years. They spoke of purity tests and called those who did not lock step with the program RINO and worse. They cowered their entire party so no one dare spoke out about the lies and excesses. Demonized anyone who thought different than their twisted world view. All that work and hate and money and gerrymandering and voter suppression and now they have their Leader. They have their voice. They believe. And every GOP hack who ever sat still with his mouth shut can now be thanked. They created this, they own this and they are this. This is your PARTY.
My fantasy is that Trump pulls off the con of the century. He talks this up, gets all the maggots to rise to the bait, and then just announces that he just wanted to show the world how ugly the GOP is. That all his talk and rhetoric was designed to see how far we would go. Like a classroom lesson. Then he would drop the mic and walk off stage.
And we know I’m dreaming. Donald is the new face and voice of Fascism. With a suit and tie.

I have a crazy neighbor I would like to report for reporting us for NOTHING! The cops know she’s crazy, because they came out to take a report, which necessitated listening to her. The next day she called them out to report some more nothing, and they sent a different officer. He was not bilingual, and she denied knowing English. So they sent the bilingual officer from the previous day, TO WHOM SHE HAD SPOKEN ENGLISH, and he reminded her of that, and recorded again that she’s crazy. He’s the same officer who took the report when I got into screaming match with the woman who ran the stop sign, so he’s familiar with ‘crazy’. And knows I’m not.

Timothy Lee Haste pleaded guilty on Monday to criminal mischief after breaking the windows of the EMW Women’s Surgical Center twice within the past month. He was sentenced to one year in jail, though he was conditionally discharged on the grounds that he have no further contact with the complainant — the only full-time abortion clinic in Kentucky. However, volunteer clinic escorts observed him outside of EMW’s front door on Tuesday and Wednesday and claimed he was bragging about his release to the protesters gathered there.

According to Anne — executive director of EMW who declines to give her last name for security reasons — neither the Louisville Metro Police Department nor prosecutors told her he was being released, nor of the conditions that he was not to be near the clinic. She says a call to LMPD has not been returned.

Even if she’s Middle Eastern—and she appears to be assuming that’s actually her photo (could be a 50-year old white guy)—it doesn’t mean she’s Muslim. There are plenty of Christians in the Middle East that dislike Muslims (in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, and places like Armenia, etc.).

I’ve heard some of the worst hate towards Muslims comes from ME Christians. It’s all so fucked up because those people probably get harassment from the same bigots who think they’re Muslims. This actually I recall did happen once to some Coptic Christians who came to protest the “Ground Zero Mosque.” And you really have to look at the former Yugoslavia. Muslim Bosnians outside their religion are really no different from Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croatians. They’re a little different than my peeps the Slovenes but that’s only because Slovenes don’t speak Serbo-Croatian.

So some dickbag on CNN said the Chicago cop was not in the wrong because McDonald kept moving. WTF. Man these people. I hope to God they never have to suffer the pain of losing a child the way Jordan’s family did because no one deserves that. No one deserves to have a bunch of people who never knew you going on national television saying you deserved to die because the police can do no wrong.

BELLINGHAM

A Western Washington University student who said she was threatened with sexual violence and death criticized the university and campus police for not doing enough to protect her and other students of color.

[…]

University President Bruce Shepard canceled classes Tuesday, after reading anonymous social media posts on Yik Yak that he said targeted students of color, possibly because they proposed replacing the school’s Viking mascot.

Don’t go there—any asshole can go on Twitter and claim to be anything. It’s a big mistake to let every clown fool you.

Even if she’s Middle Eastern—and she appears to be assuming that’s actually her photo (could be a 50-year old white guy)—it doesn’t mean she’s Muslim. There are plenty of Christians in the Middle East that dislike Muslims (in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, and places like Armenia, etc.).

Maybe so, but I’m not going to discount the fact that there are hot-headed Middle Eastern youth who will rush to root for their side in this conflict on social media.

Some of the dislike is understandable due to poor treatment of Christians by some Muslims—and sometimes worse, like the Armenian genocide—but once someone lets their hatred extend to an entire group of people, they’ve lost (no matter whether it’s Christians hating Muslims, Muslims hating Jews, Israelis hating Palestinians, etc.)

I would also note that some of the most vicious Islamophobes are of Christian Arab ancestry like Brigitte Gabriel (Marontie/Lebanon), Raymond Ibrahim (Coptic/Egypt), and even Robert Spencer (Greek Melkite/Turkey Syria).

The various press outlets are reporting that Frank Gifford’s family is reporting he had C.T.E.:

Frank Gifford, the Hall of Fame N.F.L. running back who was involved in one of the most brutal collisions in league history, was found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease.

The finding, which can only be confirmed posthumously, was announced by Gifford’s family on Wednesday, more than three months after Gifford died. His family hoped that in publicizing the diagnosis, more attention would be paid to medical research linking football and traumatic brain injury.

The article also recalls the November 20, 1960 career-ending hit of Gifford:

But his playing career is remembered for an incident on Nov. 20, 1960, when he was on the receiving end of one of football’s most famous tackles. Playing against the Philadelphia Eagles, he caught a pass over the middle and was running with the ball when he was leveled, hit high and flattened by Chuck Bednarik, the Eagles’ rough linebacker and a future Hall of Famer.

Gifford dropped the ball and lay motionless on the turf as Bednarik waved his arms and shook his fists, an image that came to signify the rough-and-tumble N.F.L. of the era. Gifford was carted off the field with a concussion, ending his season, and in February 1961 he announced his retirement.

With regards to Armenians, they are more anti-Turk than anti-Muslim. The fact that a lot of Muslims in the Levant and in Iran sheltered them from genocide in the early 20th century did a lot to quell that.

I’d liken that to Anti-English sentiment among the Irish although the Irish tour guide I talked to made the point to me “I don’t have anything against the English people, I’ve met many of them and I like them but I don’t have much love for their government.” I think speaking from an Irish-American student of history’s perspective, a lot of people wrongfully view the Troubles in Ireland as Catholic versus Protestant.

That’s what helped quell a substantial amount of anti-Muslim feeling among Armenians.

The Assyrians and Chaldeans didn’t have that because even after being surviving the killings by Turks in Anatolia, in Iraq they were still subjected to massacres in the 1930s (Simile Massacre of 1933 comes to mind) and didn’t really enjoy a lot of benefits until the Baathists came to power.

It’s just sad. I agreed absolutely with President Obama when he said if he had a son, he wouldn’t want him to play football. FWIW my Dad never played and as a result never became a big football fan because of a couple head injuries he had as a little kid. My grandmother did not want him playing. As a result, he got into basketball and his big love, music which is where we do our biggest bonding over.

I like the game - I enjoy college ball more than the NFL, if only because college teams do different things - but I wouldn’t want my kid playing it either. My nephews are playing basketball, soccer, and now baseball - and in a few years they’ll get swimming and water polo (that’s a family wide thing - my sister and I, as well as my sister’s ex all played high school and after (JC and years of club polo for me, JC/Div 3 for their dad, and Div 3 for my sister) so they’re going to have to at least try it).

The NCAA probably has the biggest fear of organized players. We saw it with Northwestern and Mizzou, we’ll probably see it other places as well in the next few years. The system is really based on the athletes having no real power at all (Lebatard is actually great on this point).

Yeah I did that too. I liked playing and I wouldn’t have a problem with that. I enjoy the game too but it’s got problems. If I have kids, I’ll probably follow what’s being done with your nephews. Awesome about your niece being a good softball player. We found out recently that my niece is a lefty just like me and her other grandpa.

Trump:

“People move into a house a block down the road, you know who’s going in,” Trump continued. “You can see and you report them to the local police.

“You’re pretty smart, right?” he asked his audience. “We know if there’s something going on, report them. Most likely you’ll be wrong, but that’s OK.

“That’s the best way. Everybody’s their own cop in a way. You’ve got to do it. You’ve got to do it.”

Heh, you haven’t lived until you’ve bent over in the hands-on-knees position and had a chubby baby face suddenly appear directly under you with a big drooling grin. Or when you’re in the prone position and a baby or toddler starts crawling all over you (usually with messy sticky fingers because mom gave them something to try to keep them quiet). The prayers are relatively quick, maybe 5-10 minutes, but on Fridays the sermons can get pretty long (depending on the subject and the imam).

Most places will try to have someone in the men’s and/or women’s areas be the designated kid-watcher (usually ends up being one of the women), but it can be difficult for one person to keep several crawling curious babies, antsy toddlers, and energetic 4-year-olds corralled & quiet. Once they get past say, age 5-6 or so, they usually start to settle down, presumably because by then they’ve started kindergarten or first grade and have learned to control themselves.

Anything that identifies someone as a conservative should be viewed as suspicous and considered a threat to the nation. They should be reported to the cops and FBI as a potential anti-American militant. It won’t be far fetched because conservatives legitmately want to over-throw the federal government and engage in violence, harassment and terrorism against Americans they dislike.

People like Shapiro are psychic vampires. They feed on hatred and division, and try to create as much of it as they can.

Damn straight. They’re practically Kremlin fifth columnists and saboteurs as it is.

Death threats linked to 4chan. The university better wake the fuck up because 4chan has already been linked to the recent shootings at BLM activists, and the nut who murdered students in Oregon. When is someone going to do something about that site?

I couldn’t have imagined that I would see this in the 21st century, or in the United States. The attacks on helpless refugees are shameful, the worst public disgrace of my lifetime, and Texas is leading this howling pack of ignorant bullies.

I don’t think a national and international boycott is out of order with this. The Feds can start by taking another look at the Pentagon’s base closing proposals. The bigots don’t get our soldiers if they won’t take the people those soldiers have risked their lives to help.

Do they still have those bug inspection stations at California’s borders? Those were unconstitutional—never mind trying to keep out people of a given religion or nationality.

Yup. Not that they inspect anything any more since there is way too much traffic on the freeways, and if you’re trying to smuggle plants in there are plenty of back roads to do it on.
Mostly they stop out of state cars because tourists may not be aware that they might be bringing in a pest-and they are particularly careful with campers and trailers that might be carrying gypsy moths.

Abbott is also trying to pressure the nonprofits into refusing to help Syrian refugees.

The Refugee Issue Is a Religious Liberty Issue

Late last week, nonprofit and charitable organizations around Texas received a troubling letter from the executive commissioner of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. Dated November 19, the letter instructs all refugee-related agencies in the state of Texas to report any plans of resettling Syrian refugees to the commission, and asks that if they are in the process of resettling Syrian refugees, to “please discontinue those plans immediately.”

Nobody more richly deserves a giant swig of their own medicine than today’s Putin lovin’ rightwing.

We should hold a seance at Joe McCarthy’s grave:

“Wake up, Joe! Uh, there’s been enough time to sober up, right?

If so, we have good news!

We’ve found a shitload of Kremlin dupes and Russkie sympathizers for you to persecute, for real. We’ve got ‘em all; teachers, preachers, Congress critters, and editors and writers. Lots of hack writers who call themselves journalists. Radio and TV shills, too (yeah, we still have radio). Remember how much fun it was to make them squirm?

There’s just one little problem.

Uh, well, you know, a lot changes in 60 years and, uh, well….
I’ll just say it then: They aren’t commies. In fact, they’re Republicans like you were. It’s still the same Kremlin though.

Think of it this way: It’s a chance to get them back for Ike turning his back on you and that whole censure thing.”

The ground shakes and splits, the sky turns dark and lightning streaks the heavens. Then a voice like Satan’s own tuba erupts. “WHISKY! WHISKY!”
