Scorn and the Whole World Scorns With You

The Face of an Authoritarian

This is an official whitehouse.gov photograph of our “president.”

I know, right.

That’s one scary looking dude.

This isn’t presidential…

Far from it.

This is a picture you would show to your kids when they’re misbehaving. You would point to it, large and ornately framed (a gold-plated frame of course) hanging from a prominent place in your home (because we will all be required to hang one soon enough, surely, as a testament to our allegiance) and tell them…

“If you don’t stop pulling your sister’s pigtail Timmy, our Dear President (formerly known as the Bogeyman) is going to crawl from under your bed tonight while you sleep and deport you to a foreign country where evil foreigners live.”

And then Timmy, our little trumpster to be, will fall into line just like that.

I mean, c’mon…

Is this photograph supposed to inspire Americans to greatness?

Or is it showing us what the face of an insecure, megalomaniacal strongman authoritarian looks like?

Scary, indeed…

Anyway, if you are a Trump supporter and you’re getting tired of my relentless tirage against him, all I can say is I can’t help myself. I have to speak out in opposition to our megalomaniac-in-chief when he continually behaves chiefly like an infantile megalomaniac insecure about the size of his… whatever.

And I do this with an understanding that you [Trump supporters] will most likely end up unfollowing me because of my incessant outspokenness toward him.

However, before you do unfollow me, I really really really wish you would submit an article to me that I promise I will publish as-is as to why you voted for Trump and why you think I am wrong about him or at a minimum why I should give him a chance.

Seriously.

I’ve been trying to engage Trump supporters on my own in a quixotic effort to understand how a thinking person could have overlooked his race/hate-baiting and violence-inspiring campaign to have voted for him and who can continue to overlook all of his autocratic antics?

In my view, he’s had his chance to prove himself presidential.

I mean, he declared his candidacy in June of 2015 for crying out loud.

How much longer do we need to wait?!

Anyway, to find answers to these questions, I visit the WordPress Reader’s “donald-trump” tag daily and I actively seek out posts opposed to my my worldview of our Dear Presidente and I ask the authors. Sadly, nine times out of ten the author moderates his or her comments and my questioning responses to their posts never get to see the light of day.

Which brings me to a serious, and seriously tangential, pet peeve of mine.

Censorship via the moderation of comments. {See my “PRO” TIP: DO NOT MODERATE ME}

I cannot believe how many of you bloggers out there moderate the comments for your website.

Why blog if you are afraid to address what the responses may be to what you publish?!

Sheesh!

Anyway, again, before you unfollow me, I encourage you to submit an article for me to publish here as to why I am wrong about Trump.

But I have no hope that you will.

And that makes me scornfully sad…

Truly.
