Trump Strips LGBT People of Workplace Protections, Then Erases Them from Census
Is it impeachment and/or prison time yet?
Make no mistake, the timing of this awfulness is not an accident. Trump and the GOP were humiliated by failure to repeal Obamacare. They must be kicking themselves for spending so much time smearing Obama's name over the ACA without realizing that a lot of their own base benefited from it, even if they didn't like the guy who made it happen. Yesterday's blitz of insanely evil executive orders is the desperate move of an administration trapped in a room that is getting smaller by the day. Like a cornered animal, the Trump Administration lashes out, trying to do enough damage to convince you to leave them alone.
The Russia thing isn't going away. The cover up always makes the initial offense worse. Politicians so much better than brighter than the Trump clown car have played this game and still lost..."bigly".
It's the same pattern that happened after President Manbaby was embarrassed by his dismal inauguration, or by the courts smacking down his Gestapo-esque Muslim ban. Every time he gets embarrassed, he doubles down on appealing to his hateful support base. He inflicts hurt on people the MRA's, Neo-Nazi's and Alt-Right assholes who make up his die hard base don't like because that's the only way they know how to show strength is through harming others.
As someone much smarter than I put it: "fascism is a loser ideology". Not only because it is doomed to fail, but it also appeals strictly to LOSERS.
Fascism is unsustainable as an ideology. It is a hungry beast that constantly requires new scapegoats to be offered up, even if you think you're in a safe group...eventually it will come for you once they run out of groups you don't care about.
It is a loser ideology in a second, more important way. It appeals strictly to LOSERS (using one of Trump's favourite schoolyard insults). Fragile, privileged little shits who cannot fathom the idea that if not for the systems set up to explicitly favor them, they wouldn't be able to compete on an even playing field with those "other" kinds of people they derisively sneer at. Losers who would rather take the lazy route of blaming minorities than address the real reasons they are being left behind by a changing society. As all loser fascists do, rather than adapt, grow or change with the times, they choose to destroy and erase those they see as a threat. Rather than try and coexist with the "other", they would just rather remove them from the situation all together.
