Let me state for the record I have had no contact with anyone from the North Korean regime. I believe we should leave them alone as much as they’re swimming in sanctions. Adding more doesn’t cause them to blink. They posture all they want but no one considers them a threat. Those in the region set off a Bronx cheer with their usual wobble before crashing back to earth. Beat their chest all they want but no one wants war at their door. Americans want no part of regime change. Neither do the Chinese.
Trump believes military is answer to everything world wide. A blind to his domestic policy driven by White Nationalists which have bubbled up from the ooze to full frontal doings in Charlottesvile. His intent is to destroy political correctness and push civility out the door. He has no plan to govern. His plan is to throw a flash bang and shoot anything moving. What happens if some national tragedy happens and he has to do more than tweet?
I don’t believe he colluded with the Russians. What his lackeys tried to do he doesn’t have the creativity for it. Nor could he keep it to himself had he known. There is no need to discuss his lack of acumen with government when he expects those whose campaigns he paid for to do what they were paid to do. Enact his agenda. Attempting to run the country like a business but we already knows he not good at that.
The distaste with Charlottesville and the like is brand new in this country. Though the Anti- fill in the blank group will be some how at fault. It is the method that the Republicans hate not the message. Most states are beholden to state constitutions and federal funds. They can scream progressive all they want but money talks. There will be more of these attacks. Consider open warfare in the streets. The outrage comes only because someone was killed in a very violent way. David Duke says it was the “Alt right” that elected Trump to office as if White Nationalists have a mandate. Speaking against them would be a betrayal. One could not help to notice the paramilitary display as a declaration of war. I could understand demonstration at the removal of a symbol of a cause. To each their demagogue. This is a case where the lone wolf did more harm than good to the cause. The “Alt right” reaction is that of a juvenile would a peer speak well of them. Peer in the Donald Trump would not denounce them. Setting these people free to see their dream of a white America realized. But he was elected and he is the President. As a man of color that scares me. As a man of color living in a thoroughly segregated city Charlottesville is the bellwether.
