Goat Blood Drinking, Pagan, Ex-attorney, Current Fla. GOP Senate Candidate Penned Manifesto, “The Charlottesville Statement”


When you’re a real Floridian–not someone who came here from someplace else–and see something like the Charlottesville riots, you naturally think, “OK, where’s the Florida connection?”.  Because you just know that’s the kind of insanity that draws faux Floridians like a magnet.

I think because of our climate, every whackjob who would normally wind
up living under a bridge or overpass, comes to Florida.  Because in Florida
people who live under bridges and overpasses don’t have to worry about
freezing to death.  That’s why we get all these goofballs who’ve made our
state’s reputation a punchline.

Of course it wasn’t long before we learned what the Florida link was.  And
it is oh-so-quintessentially Florida.

We discover from newspaper articles that, according to famed racist Richard
Spencer, it is none other than a goat blood drinking pagan Orlando former attorney, and current Florida GOP Senate candidate who penned the first draft of the altRightk nazis’ and KKK’s road map for mayhem, the manifesto “The Charlottesville Statement”.   His name is Augustus Invictus.  Well, his real name is actually something Gillespie but, apparently that wasn’t dramatic enough for a goat blood drinking pagan with political aspirations.

A snappy headline and lead paragraph from the Orlando Sentinel captures the
schadenfreud.

“Goat blood-drinking Charlottesville speaker from Orlando announces GOP
run for Senate”
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/politics/political-pulse/os-invictus-se
nate-candidacy-20170821-story.html

…Augustus Invictus, the former Orlando attorney listed as a
speaker at the Aug. 12 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville,
Va., has announced he is running again for U.S. Senate in
Florida, this time as a Republican. …

Yes, this is his second run for a senate nomination.  That Orlando Sentinel article has a link to another intriguing item in the Tampa Bay Times.

“White nationalists find hero in Augustus Invictus, killer of goats”
http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/the-buzz-florida-politics/white-nationalists-find-hero-in-augustus-invictus-killer-of-goats/2333617

The aforementioned goat blood drinking GOP candidate/Charlottesville
speaker ran against Marco Rubio in 2016 and only garnered 1063 votes. But he lost by only about 50 votes in the Libertarian Party primary that time. (Yes there are, in fact, more than 1,000 voters who cast ballots for a goat blood drinking pagan in my poor, poor pitiful home state.)

I think his new party, the GOP, is a much better fit.

The Miami Herald weighed in on Mr. Invictus as well.

rally”

Does the altRight know who this guy is?  Uhhh, aren’t most of them
Christians?  (Yeah, we all know what a violent hate-monger Jesus was, right?  No, that would be altRight.)

Why is it none of this surprising?  Appalling, yes, surprising, no.

And, of course, like most of the undesirables taking up space here in
Florida, the goat blood drinking GOP candidate is not from Florida.  He’s
from Ohio, a state in which the KKK has deep roots.

Ohio, would you please send someone to fetch your native son back home?
Please.

Confederate Statues Solution


One word. Pigeons.

Put all the statues outside in publicly owned spaces, with tall fences around them and “no trespassing” signs to prevent vandalism.  Don’t maintain them, don’t burnish them.

Then let the pigeons make their political statement about these glorious “leaders”.

 

 

Steve Bannon’s Channeling Barney Fife of Mayberry


Every time I see Steve Bannon’s image on TV I get this inner vision of Barney
Fife, clumsily getting his bullet out of his pocket and fumbling with his gun.

Instead of manliness, Bannon’s twitchy ranting channels Barney Fife from Mayberry.  For those who’ve never seen seen the TV series or its reruns, Deputy Sheriff Barney was so jumpy and nervously inept he was always discharging his firearm accidentally.  So the sheriff only allowed him to have one bullet, and Barney had to keep it in his shirt pocket as a matter of public safety.  Barney’s amusing swaggering and faux macho posturing, especially in innocuous situations which entailed no threat whatsoever, fit classic Bannon psychodrama.

Obviously Steve Bannon’s a legend in his own mind. His sour grapes rant
after being fired was hilarious.  Honestly, did he really say “I’ve got my
hands are on my old weapons”? Surely he didn’t say that the Trump
presidency is over just because he got fired. Did he?  Tell me no.

What about “I will crush the opposition.”  Who is the opposition, anyway?
The American people who don’t want to be nazis or KKK members?
WTF?

How did the people who hail Bannon as a “populist hero” (oh, brother) miss the part where Bannon said they were a “bunch of clowns”?     That means his peeps are de facto not exactly alpha male material.  (People who would bow and scrape to a grubby guy who calls them clowns seem more like a bunch of self loathing masochists.)

Barney never realized that he was a joke and I suspect Bannon doesn’t
either.  He probably isn’t getting it that he’s just a fat, grumpy old white guy whose sole claim to fame is that he’s the wealthy Mercer family’s bought-and-paid-for media whore/butt boy. (To borrow a phrase from Don Imus.)

Yep, ol’ Barney, uh, I mean Bannon, is gonna take the macho machine he
built, rev it up and take it on the road.  Uh huh.  Snicker, snicker.

Wake up girlie man. You’re just a narrow-minded old gossip who, like most gossips, deliberately appeals to folks’ worst instincts.  That’s not genius, and it’s not strategy either.  Sliming people and saying mean things is not strategy.  It’s tactics–and not good ones either.

Serial Plotter Bannon Takes on Devil Dog/Gyrene Gen. John Kelly


Predictably, Bannon lost.

What the hell was he thinking? A sleazy mouthpiece who served as a desk
jockey in the Navy vs. a Gold Star Marine dad who led combat troops in
Iraq–who would you put your money on? Duuuh.

Aha ha ha ha ha ha ha. There ya go Bannon, how’d that work out?

Just as I will always put my money on the red-blooded American male–of any color–that goes in spades for Marines. I once dated a USMC JAG Captain, who was a hooker on the Marine rugby team. Jeez, when waitresses would come to
take his order and he’d look up, they would always take a step back. He just
exuded menace. And he was just a non-combat Captain. Presumably Gen.
Kelly is infinitely more dangerous.

Thank you Gen. Kelly for liberating Mr. Bannon.

Here’s a new career choice I think Bannon would be good at. He should be
organizing bum fights beneath overpasses to scrounge up enough pocket
change to afford a bottle or two of Thunderbird.

The very thought that Bannon might be able to take on Kelly and win is
laughable. Gen. Kelly has done us all a favor by removing that painful
carbuncle Bannon from our collective ass. Yeay!

What would Jesus say?  Hoo Ah.

GOP Loves Nazis, Hates Democracy, USA


So I see where the GOP’s constituents had a big parade and cosplay
party in Charlottesville, VA. They were on TV this past weekend
having a great time, wearing their Nazi garb, waving their treasonous
CSA flags, beating up people and intimidating them.  Y’know, the kind
of fun the GOP just loves.

And there were some people counter-protesting too, in civilian garb.
Real losers, huh?  The Charlottesville police were nice enough to let the Nazis
beat up the ones they could catch.  They even let one of them murder an
innocent woman.  Of course, after the cops let the Nazis and faux rebels
whip up on the civilians for awhile, then they made some ridiculously
oh-so-not-believable attempts to appear to be trying to protect the
unarmed civilians. But it was clear whose side they were on.

The police chief acted as if it was someone else’s fault that only four or
five arrests were made. Huh?  The cops were right there watching
people rioting and getting beaten up in front of them.  If they didn’t make
arrests, it’s because they didn’t want to.   Because, apparently, the Nazis
and faux confederates are their peeps. What else could account for their
refusal to stop assault and battery going on right before their very eyes?

Not to digress but, shouldn’t the Charlottesville Chief of Police be fired
for incompetence after such a fiasco?

Police normally have relatively little trouble quelling riots and/or
collaring people who are illegally assaulting someone right in front of them. But in this case it sure looked as if they didn’t want to stop the violence, as if they wanted the Nazis and faux rebels to beat up the civilians.

My guess is that, if it had been black guys instead of white Nazis beating
up people, those police batons, night sticks, pepper spray and more
would have been used liberally.

Not to be realistic, but, let’s just take a look at the loser regimes the
Nazis and faux confederates want to emulate and see how they fared in
the past.

The CSA lasted four years. The treasonous South caused hundreds of
thousands of deaths and was pretty much turned to rubble.  William
Tecumseh Sherman took the South’s measure and realized what it would
require to put down the rebellion. He marched from Atlanta to the sea.  He started by burning Atlanta to the ground and kept right on destroying everything in his path–including crops and livestock–until he reached the sea. Georgia was a wasteland when he was finished with it.

Richmond, Charleston, Savannah, etc. were ravaged as well by the end
of the Civil War.

And it was all because white Southerners thought they should be able to base their economy on the stolen lives of millions of people, that they should be
able to own other human beings. (Those are “states’ rights” they’re
always going on about.)

Then, just to make things even worse for the South, another mindlessly
vicious idiot Southerner, John Wilkes Booth, murdered the one person in
the country who might have helped rebuild the South, Abraham Lincoln.
That was the end of “reconstruction”.  As a result the South was ground into the dirt for nearly a hundred years.

Losers! Looooosers!

The price?  Incalculable. But, apparently, that lesson has been lost on
the people we all saw on TV rioting in Charlottesville for the last couple
of days.

How great would these Charlottesville faux Nazis/CSA rebels have thought slavery was if they were the ones being bought and sold, brutalized and treated to the most horrific torments?  Would they be as enthusiastic about slavery and the confederacy under those circumstances?

Fast forward to the 20th century and Hitler’s vaunted “Thousand Year
Reich”.  Turns out he and his dumbass dweebs botched their war too, in
part because the guy they thought was so great was stupid enough to try
to fight on two far-flung fronts.

It was actually the “Twelve Year Reich”.

So much for the wisdom of following some uneducated screwball whose
plan for world domination is based on stealing everything from a very
wealthy minority and murdering the people stolen from, through mass
asphyxiation. (Who even thinks such things, let alone does them?)  It’s
incomprehensible and yet, here these people are again, on TV, going on about
what a great leader Adolph Hitler was.

The CSA confederates and the Nazis both ruined their countries and
were responsible for millions of deaths. For a combined 16 years in power.

Hmmm. That was really worth it, no?  No!

And now we have a bunch of ignorant thug followers/admirers of our
president rioting in the streets under Nazi and confederate flags. (And
I’ll bet every last one is a registered republican.)

Unfortunately, we all wind up having to pay for their brutality and
stupidity.  They’re more than just a royal pain in the ass.  They’re
expensive.

What is incomprehensible is that they’re lucky enough to have been born
in a free country and they are just pissing on it as if it were worthless.
They say they want to “take back our country”.   But what they really
mean is they want to take away everyone else’s prerogatives. They want
to take away our country; “we the people’s” country.  They want their
share and ours.

And don’t forget–they’re all republicans. The GOP courted them. The
GOP sucked up to them. The GOP loved them when it was election time.
I think the GOP loves them still but it’s just not practical at the moment
for them to admit it.

Unfortunately, it seems as if the GOP hates America. They prefer Russia
and its totalitarianism. Keep it in mind.  I think at some point we’re
supposed to have another election, although, given what the GOP has shown me in the past few months, I’m not counting any chickens on that score.

Here’s a suggested campaign slogan for the GOP that seems to fit their world view and behavior. “Vote Republican.  We’re not putting people in ovens. Yet.”

Why KKK Folks Choose to Wear Dunce Caps


It’s always been something of a mystery why any group would voluntarily
pick dunce caps as part of their official uniform. But the KKK chose
long ago to include that traditional insignia of stupidity as emblematic of
their beliefs and world view.

Now, after the last few days, it’s obvious why they made that choice. They revere ignorance, stupidity and brainless violence.  They celebrate it.  They obviously want to present themselves to the world as dummies and dunces because they are proud of it.

Nothing says “duh, I’m an idiot” like voluntarily wearing dunce caps–in public no less.  It sends a message all right–that is, that they like being dumb and ignorant. They don’t just approve it, they actually applaud it.  They work at it.

Here in America I suspect that under normal circumstances the KKK has
nothing to do with most of our lives.  Their kind of living isn’t even on our
collective radar screen.  Or at least it wasn’t until the last few days.

That’s changed.  They have pushed their unwanted, ugly ways into our
lives.

When the KKK’s demented knuckledraggers say they “will take back our country” what they really mean is that they want to take our country, and the values “we the rabble” hold dear, away from us.

Too bad.  It’s not “their” country to take.  It belongs to all of us, whether they like it or not.

F–k them!  They can’t have what belongs to all of us.  Maybe we’re the ones who should “take back our country” from the altRight, the nazis and the KKK.   Maybe they need to find someplace else to practice their backwards ways.  Maybe we should confine them somewhere so they can’t continue disrupting and infecting our public life.

I hear Alcatraz is empty, and difficult to escape.

There ya go KKK boys and girls. I’ve found the perfect spot for you.

No, no, don’t thank me.  Glad to be of help.  Now, please–leave!

And BTW, KKK, Jesus does NOT love you.

What would Jesus say?  “Crush them like the icky bugs they are..”

 

Does Trump Have Oneirataxia?


I may have the answer–to what’s wrong with Donald Trump, that is.

Maybe he has oneirataxia – the inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality.  (This, by the way, seems to be a common affliction among real estate
developers. When they talk about developing a real estate project, they think it’s
already a fait accompli.)

I came across the term while looking for a way to convey my persistent
longing for Wales. Ever since visiting there in 2014 I think about it
constantly, daily.  (It turned out the term I was looking for is “fernweh” i.e.
an ache for distant places.)

However, having so fortuitously come across a word for explaining Trump’s
seemingly delusional ravings of late, it’s only right to share it. It seems
somehow, more presidential than just saying he’s crazy as a bedbug, or
nutty as a fruitcake.  It seems less dauntingly dangerous for our national security interests than “dementia”.

Somehow, if I look at it that way it’s even not so disgusting to watch him waddling to and fro like a beached walrus, with his pathetic long red tie pointing at his crotch virtually shouting “look at my dick, look at my dick”.  Of course, I’m just a post modern dinosaur so nobody’s asking my opinion.

Still better than Hillary though.  God only knows what mental dysfunctions that one’s got hidden up her sleeve.  Or psyche.

Yep, oneirataxia – inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality.  If
that’s not our pres. I don’t know what is.
