Trump, Lincoln, and the Know Nothings

Lincoln wouldn’t attend the Tulsa rally.
Not his values. Not his party.

This isn’t the Party of Lincoln. The party was hijacked and they stole the name.

They should call themselves Dixiecrats or Know Nothings.

The samecore values. The same hate.

Trump and Jefferson Davis

Trump likes to compare himself with President Lincoln. But Lincoln was Honest Abe. And nobody has ever called Trump honest

Other possibilities.

President Andrew Johnson? Both of them were impeached

President Jefferson Davis?
His followers flew Confederate flags too.

The Backstory of a Photo and Kierkegaard

Fascinating Details About The Graphic That I Posted Yesterday

Call it a coincidence…

Shortly after I published the powerful photo of a white male confronting a young back protestor, I received the below response from Scott Christopher Marum:

“I’m ashamed to admit that this happened in my hometown.”

I asked Christopher to tell me the backstory, and here’s his reply;

“All I know is that she was raised to stand tall, and specifically told to always meet the eye of these aggressors, to force them to see her humanity.

“In the video you can actually see her remove her sunglasses to make eye contact with him.

“His name is Ray Snowden, and he’s not alone in feeling like he does.

“I’m Native, and I can assure you that I’ve seen racism, alive and well, in that remote little corner of northwest Montana—Whitefish, Montana—where I lived from 1978 until 2018.

“It makes me proud to see so many up there actually take a stand, especially considering that it’s not the most diverse population.”

Thank you Christopher for giving me permission to share those details with the growing number of followers of this FB page.

Now this photo is more than a photo. It’s a permanent record of a chance being made. Stand your ground, speak up, or back down, and bite your tongue.

Life can only be understood backward, but it must be lived forward.

That’s what Soren Kierkegaard, the famous Danish philosopher, wrote in his journal

And what did Kierkegaard mean?

He meant that at every waking moment we make decisions that only we can make.

Society or the church or our friends or our family can’t make them for us. That’s how life is lived forward. And that is recorded here.

(For more about Kierkegaard, read Adam Kirsch’s fine article in “The New Yorker,” May 8th,
2020)

Donald Trump and Herbert Hoover

Trump is going to make Herbert Hoover look like a financial wizard.

The Republican-controlled Senate has gone home for a three-week vacation—-but before leaving did nothing to help states and municipalities on the verge.

But not a word of complaint from Trumpists who foamed at the mouth when Nancy Pelosi tried to keep all the billions Congress appropriated from going to fat cats.

Cult members wanted to lock Pelosi up.

Mitch McConnell said, “Let the states go bankrupt.” That’s right up there with Marie Antoinette‘a “Let them eat cake.”

This from the Republican cult that now calls itself the “States’ Rights Party.”

Meanwhile, first-responders,
police, firefighters, health care workers, and teachers are being furloughed and terminated.

Just wait till all those people join the millions already unemployed.

Welcome to the Republican “Transition To Greatness”

Donald Trump is the end point of what the Republican Party has become.
