“Burn Baby, Burn”


Why would the American people vote a rapist into the office of the Presidency of the USA? Donald Trump is a rapist, by his own telling, by his own words we heard him speak. If you think all of his women accusers are lying you still have Trumps own words how he did it! Electing someone like that to be President of the United States would be an act of violence like a riot. We have all seen riots on TV. After the Rodney King beating in 1991 we all watched as Black people burned their own places and houses. White people watched and said, “Why would anyone burn down their own houses?” Maybe some of us finally saw that the riot was an act of desperation at injustice.

Voting for Donald Trump was an act of desperation by many people. They were burning down their own houses by electing him!! The terrible thing is, they may do it again! Even so, it took more than rustbelt pain to elect Trump. It took all the push Russia and Putin could give, and it took the desire of the super wealthy who wanted a President who would continue the neoliberal trend to bring public wealth into private hands. I don’t know how many Americans were really aware of what social philosopher Sheldon Wolin called “inverted totalitarianism” as a description of the true American ruling system, but they were certainly aware that corporations have assumed power over the people! Those in the rustbelt knew that fact in a gritty daily grind of painful life. Like the Black Americans who rioted after Rodney King’s beating, they set fire to America by throwing in the molotov cocktail of Donald J Trump, rapist, liar, conman, thief. They gave him the keys to the kingdom and said, “Here! Burn it down!!!” Only too happy to comply Trump has done exactly as they wished!!! Trump is the end of America for as far as the eye can see. His true guiding slogan is not “Make America great again.” It is “Burn it to the ground and burn baby burn.” I think all of this is still unconscious within the minds of millions of Americans, including many Democrats who have yet to really grasp the truth behind Trump! Inverted Totalitarianism cannot be fought at the ballot box. It would take national strikes and millions in the streets like the Occupy Wall Street movement began. Without that, a second Trump term with finish the burning of America and give us the dawn of a new dark age of Chinese/Russian primacy. It’s only check will be from the global collapse of climate change which will make habitation of this planet very difficult indeed for any human race.
