The GOP’s Rotten Underbelly

proxy

This oaf is really causing untold damage to the electoral process.

Charles Blow has written an excellent article about Trump in the NYTs.

Trump is in fact the logical extension of toxic masculinity and ambient misogyny. He is the logical extension of rampant racism. He is the logical extension of wealth worship. He is the logical extension of pervasive anti-intellectualism.

Trump is the logical extension of the worst of America.

With him you get a man who believes himself superior in every way: through the gift of fortune and the happenstance of chromosomes. He believes the rules simply don’t apply. Not rules that govern the sovereignty of another’s body, not rules that dictate decorousness.

And the Republican Party was just the right place for him to park himself.

Trump is fundamentally altering American politics — coarsening them, corrupting them, cratering them. And America, particularly conservative America, has only itself to blame.

Republicans sowed intolerance and in its shadow, Trump sprang up like toxic fungi.

    Perfectly put.

    Even if he does concede, he has lit a fire under the mob. I refuse to be scared but it would be foolish not to be aware of the possible, and increasingly probable, consequences.

    Oops! Please insert an “if” between “even” and “he”. Although it strikes me the fact I left it out might be a Freudian slip as I can’t imagine him conceding.

    Blow has Trump nailed. All that’s missing is the pointy white hat.

    Anyone else yearning for the good old days of word salad and rhymin’ and chimin’ and ringing those bells in a porcupine sweater and crazy shoes or flag cowboy boots? Me too! Please vote! Nov 8th can’t some soon enough, eh? Go Hillary!
