Trump falsely assigns blame for violent protests against police brutality in furious Sunday tweets

The AntiChrist is ranting on about anarchists.


With the nation inflamed over the police murder of George Floyd — and literally in flames in many cities — Donald Trump is nearing the end of the mission expressed clearly by his former chief political strategist Steve Bannon when he declared himself a Leninist:

“Lenin wanted to destroy the state and that’s my goal too,” Bannon once said. “I want to bring everything crashing down and destroy all of today’s establishment.”

While Bannon is long been physically gone from the White House, his ethos has carried on, both in Trump’s response to the demonstrations that have erupted into violent frustration and in his purposeful and pitiful failures to lead the federal government to take the obvious measures needed to minimize the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the demonstrations across the country over the past few days have been primarily peaceful outpourings of rightful protest against the blatant murder of an unarmed black man begging police for his life — just the latest in a long string of extrajudicial killings of African Americans by unrestrained “peace officers” — many reports have surfaced that the looting and violence that emerged in the evening hours of some protests were instigated by outside agitators with no connection to the aims of the protestors.

While some people believe that these provocateurs were far-right extremists who were using the protests as a way to advance their calls for a “Boogaloo” — the perversion of a name given to a particularly funky strain of 60s salsa music into a term for a race war, likely Civil War II — Trump has decided that its politically useful for him to blame the unrest on the left-wing radicals known as Antifa, standing for anti-fascist.

One must wonder why it isn’t obvious to everyone that if Trump is anti-Antifa, then he must be Profa — pro-fascist or proto-fascist, but certainly profane —when it comes to defying decades of cultural norms that regard those who were responsible for the deaths of millions in Nazi Germany, its occupied territories, and Franco’s Spain as among the most condemnable villains who stalked the earth during the 20th century.

With the disruptive protests extending to the gates of the White House, Trump must be getting nervous and losing sleep, judging from the tenor of his tweets yesterday and the fact that he didn’t send his first original tweet on Sunday until just after Noon.

Naturally, his first target of the day was the latest distractive bogeyman he’s setting up to deflect the blame that should properly be aimed his way.

Add your name to reject Trump & Republicans’ vile idea of sacrificing seniors’ lives to save the stock market!

A real president would be at least trying to unite the nation during these divisive times, but Trump simply sees divisions as a tool to exploit to try to retain and expand his own power.

With the National Guard and state and local police using tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets — often indiscriminately and without warning — against peaceful protestors and even journalists frantically displaying their press credentials, Trump’s praise of the tactics being used for crowd control is most certainly Profa.

Somehow Trump encourages the anarchy when it is a bunch of his own maskless white-skinned supporters armed to the teeth with automatic weapons who are storming the Michigan State Capitol demanding the right to get a haircut and spread COVID-19 together in bars and restaurants, but when it comes to people of all races demanding an end to the entrenched police practice of murdering unarmed citizens because of the color of their skin, well, that’s a bridge too far for this morally obtuse president.

Trump escalated his pro-fascist propaganda campaign with his next tweet.

With this tweet, Trump is apparently officially repudiating his opinion — stated after the murder of Heather Heyer by a neo-Nazi in Charlottesville, Virginia — that there are “very fine people” on both sides of the political spectrum and is taking a definitive position on the side of the fascists.

With this tweet, many people in the not-very-United States will be designating Donald Trump and his administration as a Terrorist Organization.

In his continual effort to avoid responsibility of any kind — an effort that makes you wonder if anything besides the pomp, glitz, and power made him want to become president in the first place — Trump denied any accountability for fomenting violence through his own tweets and public statements and instead pinned the blame on his favorite target, the media.

As usual, one must use the Trump tweet secret decoder ring to discern the true meaning of the president’s statement. The trick is to substitute Trump’s own name for that of the target that he is attacking in any given social media post and then the actual state of reality is revealed to you.

It is indeed Trump himself who is doing everything within his power to foment hatred and anarchy — although the use of a word like “foment” indicates that some more literate member of his political staff wrote this particular tweet.

The good news is that now that we understand what he is doing, that he is the ultimate “FAKE NEWS” and a truly bad person with a sick agenda, we can easily work through him to “GREATNESS!”

That “GREATNESS” can only be achieved once we remove him from office, a prospect that still makes November seem way too far away to wait for.
