We've been witness to how TEApublicanism affects the human mind, this nation's body politic, and our country's spirit.
It is as insidious as anything Christ spoke against; it is as invasive as any aggressive disease.
Hate and division; nationalism and nihilism... the avenues to despotism are various and many; yet those individual Highways to Hell are far less important than their ultimate common destination.
I've said this before.. and I'll say it again time after time before my time is done.
It's still important to know and be aware of those Highways and to see who travels them. It is still important to see and understand who are attempting to divert America and Americans onto those means to Hell.
The word is out that Trump will be trotting out "proof" and this should raise your awareness.
Today's brand of "conservative" are good at "proof". We've witnessed their version of it in support of conspiracies ranging from President Obama's otherness on to the Global conspiracy of scientists to fool the world into believing in climate change. We've witnessed it from seeing several men looking like caricatures of Black Panthers being imagined as "proof" of a vast Black Panther conspiracy to manipulate elections around the nation; from a handful of actual cases of in-person voter fraud as "proof" that the wholesale stripping of the franchise from millions of American Citizens is not only something which is necessary but somehow is something that is both right and just. We've seen it all.. and we know exactly for whom this paranoid fantasy world exists as a given fact; TEApublicans.
Donald Trump has elected to be crowned the King of TEAville. He has elected to submerge himself in it's dark waters; to emerge born-again from the river of filth from which TEApublicans haul the very hydraulic fluids which power their populist construct to give it motion.
We've seen how crazy "conservatives" will carve "Obama" into their own foreheads just to point at others and scream "PROOF!". We've seen lunatics take known military exercises and weave intricate paranoid Jade Helmets of "PROOF!". We've seen "conservative" politicians poison the civic waters to poison the souls that drink from them... just to point at the victims and give rebel-yells of "PROOF!".
What form will Trump's "proof" take?
Who knows.. it might follow the mold of "conservative" politicians having affairs that, when confronted by the knowledge that these affairs will come to light, manufacture cynical revelations of non-existent homosexual affairs as firebreaks to hide the real truths.
Will he pay some others to accuse he himself.. just to recant or be "proven" as liars later?
It might come in the form of deflections and tangential tirades.
It might come in the form of blatant lies or subtle misdirections.
No one can be certain as of yet.. but..
I do know this.
Donald Trump has embraced a certain kind of person and their deluded mindsets; embraced all their weird ways and all their immoral means.
He has access to funds which most of the past examples simply could not come close to accessing. The ability to construct much larger and more complex machinations is Trump's to use; and I have no doubt at all that he will.
We know how "conservatives" will more than eagerly swallow whatever is fed them; try your best to avoid being so easily fed and thus fooled.
