RIP RUTH GINSBURG

with one comment

Well, Ruth Ginsburg, the most senior Supreme Court justice, has died. And wow, doesn’t that just add a whole new layer of contention and volatility to the mix. Gasoline on the dumpster fire that is the 2020 election. Late breaking news, so no reactions yet, but one can speculate. Wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Trump insisted on installing a new justice before the election. His base will go wild for it, that’s all that counts. Instead of an election for president of the united States, we have two teams vying for political dominance. Any resemblance to a functioning constitutional republic is a hollow facade at this point, and it’s likely going to get a lot worse now. 

The sickness comes in society when one faction blames another for all that’s wrong. I think every mass horror in humanity’s history has had that at its core. I mean there’s always individuals, but sometimes it metastasizes into actual collective action. Facism as a cancer. I’m sure others have made the comparison. Trump and his supporters have infinite belief in him, and they absolutely believe that liberals are the cause of the nation’s problems. Listen to Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and countless others if one has any doubts.

Well, for decades the right has been claiming they have all the answers, and liberals are the problem, and now Trump has had a four year mandate to fix things. The country is kind of a mess now, and his answer is, predictably enough, “The liberals did all this, and I need to be reelected to  set things right!” Well, if he gets reelected, he’ll have his chance.

Even if Trump doesn’t, but claims he did? What’s the worst that could happen? Well … columns of armed pro-Trump militia attack protestors en masses, killing hundreds? Thousands? With local police standing by? It’s happened, in, well, countless countries. There’s no reason it couldn’t happen here in America. The bloodiest event in US history was the Civil War, where  Americans took to arms in a treasonous revolt. It ended badly, in as much as it has ended as all.

Ideology only works as it is consistent with reality and science. Trumpism isn’t. It won’t end well. Anything is possible. Weird shit like foreign armies crusading through the USA like they did after the Russian Revolution during and after World War One. Canada declares  a 100 mile martial buffer zone and is welcomed by the locals to restore law and order. (I claim royalties on the movie rights.) There’s worst case scenarios like any fan of the apocalyptic genre is aware. Myself included

I chose this above image before hearing the news about Ruth Ginsburg. Bad weird shit’s coming people. I’m gonna keep blogging about it. Have a great weekend, hold your family close. #StaytheFHome #WearaDamnMask #InsanusTempora

  1. Well surmised. The death of the SC judge, to be replaced no doubt very quickly by another conservative, will put back women’s rights to the stone age.
    Of course, this might not happen if women voters recognize what’s about to happen to them and vote against ultra-conservatism.
    I look forward to what happens next with bated breath!
