Finally, Something Scarier Than Melanin

Last edited Tue Mar 10, 2020, 12:39 PM - Edit history (1)

Will the Coronavirus be the thing to dim the shine in those Trump-Worshippers' eyes?

Trump taps into the fear responses in the amygdala, now there is something looming that competes for his amygdalaite army's attention besides the threat of black and brown people getting health care, having decent schools, working at more prestigious jobs than they have or possibly marrying their daughters.

When you see Trump's followers wearing hoods now, it will be to keep them from breathing air-borne viruses. He's already pretty much given them permission to bring the white robes out of the back of the closet and wear them in the light of day.

When the robes don't keep them healthy any more than they can manage to keep the world lily-white, maybe they will re-think Trump. Of course, what they need to do is to start burning white robes and hoods instead of burning crosses.

At this point, I would settle for them abandoning Trump. Teaching them to accept their brown-skinned fellow human beings may take a few more generations.

We need Trump and his Climate-Change denier pals out of power so that we can have those generations to lift more people out of fear and into the light of what should be true democratic values.

1. Melanoma is pretty damn scary, especially at Christmas - shudder.

I do think the virus is scarier and the more the trumpers deny science, the more of them that will get sick - see CPAC and all the Russian Repug legislators that have now had to self-quarantine. Too bad the person most responsible for this not being controlled here, drumpf, hasn't gotten sick ... yet.

2. It's out of character for me to wish ill on someone

But I can't say it wouldn't give me satisfaction if Orangeface gets it, and even more if he gets it twice.
