Trump and Kavanaugh are the real victims, don’t you know? 

I just had a disgusting bout with a real-world person, over Facebook. Dr. Ford is a “bitch” who definitely “lied” in a Democrat plot to deny Republicans a court seat.

That’s the talking point going around.

When you bring up a dozen perjuries under oath (1, 2), that’s ignored. When you bring up 2,400 law professors protesting Kavanaugh, that’s ignored.

Also ignored is the dean of Yale law school, Kavanaugh’s old haunt, who said:

“[Kavanaugh’s] very presence will undermine the court’s claim to legitimacy; it will damage the nation’s commitment to the rule of law. It will be an American tragedy.”

The right-wing smear machine has also fabricated completely unsourced hit pieces against Dr. Ford. It’s all about Dr. Ford and nothing about Kavanaugh’s total unfitness for the position.

Obama’s Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, was actually denied a seat by an actual Republican plot in the Senate to refuse to confirm him under any circumstances. These ignorant bobbing heads are beyond hypocrisy since they don’t know enough about any of the subjects to contradict themselves knowingly.

Now they claim Kavanaugh is the victim of “liberal” death threats. Meanwhile, Dr. Ford had to move out of her house for actual death threats. Republicans are through-the-looking-glass, behaving like a Brown Shirt mob at every level from Trump on down. They are completely impervious to facts and logic, and they are, indeed, proudly armed and dangerous.

I’m not a big fan of Trevor Noah, but this observation on Republican weaponizing of “victimhood” should send chills down your spine. It is the Nazi game plan. White nationalists are the victims in Nazi ideology, and they’re defending their race, nation, state, values, or what have you, as they perpetrate any number of atrocities against outsiders.

 A Bunch Of Racist Tweets From Donald Trump Dating Back To 2013

The best Saturday Night Live could come up with is a parody of that godawful Independence Day nationalistic gibberish, the underdog America battling the overwhelming alien invasion. It’s so stupid and tone deaf, relying on fantasy aliens to provide your justification, that both the films and the sketch rank as tales of, by, and for idiots.

America is always the underdog for starters. The empire isn’t the underdog. Wrong sci-fi comparison. Then the slobbering militarism and nationalism, pledge of allegiance, etc. Get some intelligent satire, SNL.

The owners are playing right into the Chinese-are-coming and Russians-are-coming canned hysteria they’ve been manufacturing and peddling for the past few years. Unfortunately, that leaves the audience who buys into this nonsense about as dumb as Alec Baldwin’s Trump. But they’re real.

The propaganda barrage continues in plain sight.

Alec Baldwin is back as SNL’s Trump, and he’s not prepared to battle invading aliens
PS

In rhe real news, Trump just sent 900 troops into Syria, with 400 more requested and 2500 heading to Kuwait to also join in. That’s a very different narrative and reality, which SNL has nothing to say about.

From Press Play:

I don’t go in for “torture porn,” and I don’t know if I agree with this series.  I’m still catching up with part 2 right now.  You can watch and decide for yourselves.
