Veterans report on Tulsa rally; click link in thread below


A very insightful look into the Tulsa rally by veterans.

June 28, 2020

The world now pities us. We are now Brad Parscales "Death Star." Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and

Drumpf himself, with all the GOP enablers have created a version of "America" which has been dramatically changed in less than 4 years. Our institutions have been eroded, our right to vote is under attack, public education has been under attack, immigration policy is inhumane, Affordable Care Act (health care for 20 plus million) is under attack, we have dissed all our allies, we support brutal dictatorial regimes, we opted out of nuclear arms treaties, climate accords, human rights agreements, civil rights are threatened, peaceful protest is threatened, systematic racism has been exposed and the armed fascists are surrounding 45 to protect the Fuehrer.

My daughter cried today realizing that what the Statue of Liberty and America is supposed to represent and be, is gone (and it may well be). While Putin and others relish in this, and appreciate Drumpf's unwavering support, the majority of Americans are sick, literally and figuratively. I never used to hate people, but damn them to hell for what they have done.

Those of us that have been plugged in saw it coming 4 years ago and I always thought our institutions would hold. Barr and DOJ, Pruitt and Wheeler EPA, DeVoss, Educ., etc., etc. It has been systematic and relentless in it's destruction, and with 200 and counting lifetime appointments at federal benches, we may be destined to decades of fascism and serfdom for all but the wealthy. That will take about 4 more years, and they are licking their chops, because they know how close they are to total control.

Sorry for the rant, but I am beyond disgusted. It is OUR country, OUR flag, OUR heritage and OUR belief that America stands for more than greed and control by the "elite." The shared sacrifice of our parents and grandparents is being deficated on by those who think of the Constitution as a "goddamn piece of paper." And that was George W. Bush speaking almost 20 years ago. The "Neo Cons" and Project for a New American Century charted this course. How far they have come in their mission to unravel America, revise history and pit us against each other. They must be absolutely giddy and their desperation to hold onto that power will become more and more apparent and lawless over the next six months. Tell me I'm wrong. Please.

War-like Gorillas vs. science-based Chimpanzees. We are living in Planet ot the Apes redux.

All that remains is the crumbled Statue of Liberty, and we need to stop a very dangerous madman. The pro-Trump minions are willing to follow him to the death. Quite illiogical but real.

"When Danger raised its ugly head, he simply turned his tail and fled." Brave Sir Donald.

He is done with the virus (which is not done with us; it does what it does). He is done with any semblance of governing, alliances, participation at any level on the world stage or leadership. He is intent on one thing, to keep his base pissed off enough to take up arms. This I believe. Vlad must be so giddy. He has done a wonderful job and has earned his Apprentice status.

So the "wartime president" is AWOL. It was too hard. He accepts no responsibilty, and he is simply

not very interested in saving American lives at this point. To the contrary, his denial, minimilization and staggering ignorance shows how horribly unsuited he is for any position of authority. Even when we have even bigger spikes or "waves", he will blindly continue to ignore reality and demand the country ignore it as a whole. He has already said as much. We are down the rabbit hole.

So how many deaths are "acceptable" at this point? We are being led by a tyrant, whose only

concern is maintaining power and rewarding those who suck up. Where is Congress right now? Investigations? Renewed calls for impeachment? Unless Covid 19 takes him down and shows the tongue chewers that we coulda shoulda done more, this is looking pretty f'in grim. Seriously, how many dead Americans is "doing a great job?" 100K? 500K? 2 mill? They clearly don't care. This is a criminal enterprise from top to bottom. Operation "Restore Sanity 2020."

Using a pandemic for political or personal purposes is obscene.

Please impeach and remove this miscreant from office. This cannot stand until November.

Never thought I'd say it but I miss Chris Matthew's no BS voice right now. Institutional knowledge

can't be easily replaced. He was obnoxious and dismissive, but was unafraid to speak the truth to power. I miss that.
