The World Is Against You
And Trump apologists and supporters find this inspirationally funny
It is rather unfortunate that this administration and all who they represent can’t tell right from wrong. The opprobrium that exists now and that will continue to grow later will be immeasurably unreconcilable. It will be an indelible stain upon many stains in the fabric of our country and our lives.

A cooperative stand by governments around the world to curb and or hold accountable online extremism — which in and of itself threatens not just freedom of speech but infringes on the freedoms of others — is absolutely just. This is just one of many moral and ethical failings by this administration that is being touted as American exceptionalism derived solely from the paternalism of white supremacy.
We know that this administration would shy away from denouncing the very despicable phenomena of this sort of online extremism or embracing political correctness as it were, because of the inherent complicity of its espousal which granted them influence and power from the 2016 presidential election.
This coded messaging that follows from the White House and its cynical concern is the type of sophistry that only impresses the narcissistic supply of Donald Trump and the republican party.
“We continue to be proactive in our efforts to counter terrorist content online while also continuing to respect freedom of expression and freedom of the press,” the White House said. “Further, we maintain that the best tool to defeat terrorist speech is productive speech, and thus we emphasize the importance of promoting credible, alternative narratives as the primary means by which we can defeat terrorist messaging.”
The American government has also been either hesitant or has not applied the charge of crime in terrorism under its latest iteration or expansion in Section 802 of the USA Patriot Act.
A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act “dangerous to human life” that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to: (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping. Additionally, the acts have to occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and if they do not, may be regarded as international terrorism.
How the USA PATRIOT Act redefines "Domestic Terrorism"
Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover ""domestic,"" as…
Our government continues to racialize domestic terrorism with willful blindness to the growing threat from alt-right, right-wing, anti-Black, anti-Muslim, anti-immigration, identitarian, and neo-nazism tribalism and groups. The tactics of ethnic cleansing espoused by these groups are seemingly okay with this government.
Then there is this provocation and escalation of tensions towards Iran instigated by an unchecked hawkish sentiment from the Trump administration. This has been the intent ever since this government withdrew from the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Skeptical U.S. Allies Resist Trump's New Claims of Threats From Iran
WASHINGTON - As the Trump administration draws upwar plans against Iran over what it says are threats to American…
The Trump administration is looking at plans to send as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East should Iran attack American forces or accelerate work on nuclear weapons, The New York Times reported. On Tuesday, Mr. Trump dismissed that as “fake news.” “We have not planned for that,” he told reporters.
But he immediately added, “If we did that, we’d send a hell of a lot more troops than that.”
Mr. Trump, you and your illiteracy, your administration, your apostles, along with your followers are the bane of rational, empathetic, peaceful and interdependently progressive peoples’ existence, not just here in the United States but around the world.
Understandably and undeniably there will be a huge mess to clean up after you are gone, and which by then no one will be laughing.
