Going to war for America is now an almost entirely partisan sport. Look at the chart above that Rachel Maddow’s research and design team put together. Four years ago, when Barack Obama was our President and Assad gassed his people, 38 percent of Democrats supported U.S. military intervention. Only 22 percent of Republicans trusted a Black President sending in some Seal Team Six knockout dawgs.
Today, virtually the same number of Democrats still support a U.S. intervention in Syria. But, Republicans — now that they have a rich good old white boy in the Oval Office — are giddy for some killing. A full 86 percent of Republicans now support WAR. As you see above, that’s a 64 percent spike.
This isn’t SPARTA, so we’ll call it MADNESS.
The behavior of the Baby-handed one is madness. Coke-high madness, sniff, sniff. That is a cancer that can be cut out. But not once it’s metastasized. When just about a quarter of the country is channeling this psychopath’s cray, the willful, defensive ignorance becomes a species of suicidal.
We’re fighting a modern-day Jonestown. We’re fighting for our lives.
I hope showing a photo of what Jim Jones did long ago doesn’t ruffle feathers. You have to look into the eyes of this evil. Millions and millions will die if Trump and those in his little Reich are not brought to justice.
Keep Resisting and keeping your chin up. We’re not going to be taken down to a reality show real estate idiot used car salesman.
