“My father was a Republican. I was an angry hippy socialist and during the sixties, while the smell of tear gas was in the air we never had a political argument. His embrace of the GOP was not a passion and the omnibus policies of nationalism and fiscal responsibility were not that much removed from the Democrats really, but all Americans pretty much agreed that the Russians were not our friends. Cut To the calendar pages blowing.
Today the GOP / NRA is a fifth column tool of the Russian government committed to the demise of our way of life. They masterfully have pandered to a base that is bigoted, frightened, hateful and exclusionary. Using treachery, dishonesty and the treasonous actions of hypocrites that call themselves patriots have eviscerated our national dialogue. The Russians, through a cyber attack, have placed a mole as president and, using age-old methods of social anarchy, are attempting to institute jackbooted authoritarianism securing the same docile torment and dehumanization seen in the eyes of the Russian people.
There will soon be a coming together of hate. Not a clandestine meeting of conspirators in some hidden and secret location like the Sachell Islands, but right out there in front of everyone, a congregate of those that want America to end. It will be referred to as the Republican National Convention and it demands a reaction. A spectacle of hate and derision cannot be allowed to occur without an appropriate equal and opposite reaction. Remember our outrage at the Vietnam war destroyed the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago? It is our national survival that is at stake this time. We must all show up with outrage and patriotism, repudiating the vile cynical oligarchy and system of privilege that omits most of America.”
