We’re at a crossroads, GOP: Time to stand up to Trump

We saw these things coming well over a year ago, but were gaslighted, told we weren’t seeing what we saw with our own eyes, weren’t hearing what we heard with our own ears, that we were conspiracy theorists making it all up, brainwashed by the media/Hillary’s campaign.

Trump is a raging malignant narcissist, and those of us familiar with narcs recognize him and everything he’s doing.  We see his false apologies, his deflections, the way he love-bombs and then devalues and discards, but keep hearing “give him a chance to govern” or “you libtards are hilarious” or “you’re just listening to fake news.”

Now Andrew Anglin (the Daily Stormer guy who apparently has a lot of influence) has declared war.  Anonymous has threatened him and other Nazis with blood vengeance.  Anglin has also been deriding the Nazis’ victim and suggesting they go disturb her funeral.

We can’t depend on our president to lead us because he insists on casting blame on the patriots who were fighting these Nazis (usually considered a good and right thing to do), which further emboldens the Nazis and other white supremacist groups, who see Trump as their glorious Leader.  Meanwhile, Trump has been threatening and stirring up a deranged dictator who has nukes.  He keeps doing things that dictators do to seize power.  But he calls the news “fake,” feeding into the narrative that our Constitutionally provided check on power is not to be trusted when they call him out.

I’ve been studying the Third Reich as research for my novel; I started this project two years ago, having no idea that these histories of 70-80 years ago would begin happening all over again before my eyes.  I’ve been learning how a radical group with small numbers took over a Christian nation.  I told myself it couldn’t happen here, but then Trump proceeded to dismantle our checks and balances, while Congress let him.  There are a few Republican Congressmen standing up to him, but the majority has sold their souls for political gain.

Now the rest of the world is looking on in horror because these things don’t happen here in the USA.  And because if we fall prey to this, Europe is next, with their own rising alt-right.

I want to turn off the TV and the Net and tell myself that it’s not really so bad, that I’m just making too much of it and everything will be better in the morning.  But I turn the TV back on and there it is again, more crap daily.

Will the GOP finally stand up against Trump?  Or will they keep falling all over themselves to suck up to him so they can get their political objectives?

GOP, don’t make the same mistakes as the Junkers and the military generals did when Hitler finagled his way into power. Stand up and stop this.

World to Trump: Stand up against racism, neo-Nazis

“Nazis must be confronted”: World leaders accuse Trump of “glossing over” racist violence

“He went rogue”: President Trump’s staff left stunned

Trump should come to Europe and see what the Nazis did

To All Nazis: Crawl back into the shadows where you came from.

The world fought a war to get rid of you.  There are still those alive who remember.  And even though most of us were not born yet when it happened, we also remember.

America does NOT belong to you.

 

On current events….

I haven’t been blogging about politics much lately.  I do, however, often comment or retweet on political matters on my Twitter, https://twitter.com/nyssathehobbit/.  There’s just too much going on, I don’t want to turn my blog into all-politics, and I’m trying to focus my writing efforts on my novel at the moment.  I often work on my book for a few hours a night, and let’s face it, posting on Twitter is much quicker and easier than writing a blog post about everything that happens.  😉

So if you want to know what I think about current events, you can follow me on Twitter.  (Yes, stalkers, that’s you, too, if you behave yourselves.  😉  )  You can also keep up using the Twitter feed I post on my blog here.

I also have an author Twitter, focused on my books and writing:  https://twitter.com/NyssaMcCanmore.  I had been neglecting it, but I’m trying to get it going again.  You can also see the Twitter feed on my writing blog, here.

 

Oh, what a shame….

We had to cut down a cedar bush-tree in our yard.  It was tall and big and a favorite of all sorts of birds.  A flock of finches has been gathering there for weeks, chattering away and pooping all over.  I put out leftover bread, they swoop in and pounce on it.

But the trunk was rotting away, putting the house, garage, etc. at risk.  And the condo association wants to replace the fence; the tree was in the way.  Certainly good reasons to get rid of it.

But now they just finished cutting it down, I looked out there, and–

I feel so exposed.  😛  I’m used to the big bush-tree hiding us from the neighbors.

Ah, bush-tree, I will miss you.

And now I expect the flock of finches to give us the stink eye.
