Stand up and be counted. Affirm your love for the former son of the KGB. The old Soviet strongman wanna be. For our own Troglodyte of the Chumped has proclaimed him worthy of more praise than our own sitting president; you know, the guy who managed to get more people health care coverage than ever before?
Can you even begin to imagine what the hew and cry would be from what used to be know as Republicans if any Democrat, let alone Hillary Clinton, were to sing the praises of a man who probably has his own private shrine to Stalin? A man who got his chops putting black boots firmly on the ground of forced collectivism at the point of a gun? A man who's very essence was formed sucking at the tit of crazy big, centralized bureaucracy? Seriously?
And still the media talks to our Troglodyte of the Chumped as if he were a serious candidate for high office. Where is the disgust that would at least deny this farce any microphone, or camera here on out till voting day. He's a supposed billionaire after all. Let him pay for his own TV, radio, or web time. That's supposed to be "free speech" now. Asking him more questions, which he just gleefully uses to double down again and again on ever more ridiculous stupidity, or willful ignorance, making this election cycle ever more a plea for a sanity intervention from on high, is to participate in an enabling process of horrific proportions. Don't any of these news organizations have any sense of when enough is enough?
Apparently not. So, as this debasement continues, we should be gathering long memories for their complicent participation.
Dishonesty in politics is nothing new; but the manner in which some politicians now lie, and the havoc they may wreak by doing so, are worrying.
