This Political Boxing Champ Is Good With His Jabs — No Doubt
It remains to be seen if he will tire out and go down eventually, but for now he remains the undisputed
If there were such a category, Donald Trump would be the undisputed, heavyweight political boxing champ of the world indeed, right now. While he will never be able to score a unanimous decision, he does wear down his opponents — along with everyone else that is in and around his corner — with his political jabs.
You should see his jabs coming by now but once we get lulled into the vanity and or insanity of his narcissistic persona we get caught flatfooted with hardly a defense and absolutely no offense. The Democrats have been on the ropes the whole time. Independents don’t even wanna fight. And Progressives, they just want to brawl. And Trump too is a brawler.
The most recent jab to democracy’s chest.
I may not know sarcasm but I do understand oppression.
I may not know sarcasm but I do understand the pathological display of narcissistic personality disorder.
I may not know sarcasm but I do know hostility.
I may not know sarcasm but I do know that feeling of being bullied.
Sarcasm is actually a form of hostility being masked by humor. It is usually told using language in a very crass and sardonic way. There is nothing clever or witty about it. We seem more motivated to react negatively towards one another instead of reinforcing positivity socially, and this is quite evident in social media — a minefield of excessive or intemperate competitive self-interest.
the origin of the word sarcasm derives from the Greek word “sarkazein” which literally means “to tear or strip the flesh off.”
What’s more, since actions strongly determine thoughts and feelings, when a person consistently acts sarcastically it usually only heightens his or her underlying hostility and insecurity. After all, when you come right down to it, sarcasm is a subtle form of bullying and most bullies are angry, insecure, cowards.¹
The president’s jabs has worn down the NFL owners and the league — but not its players — that prompted the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to make this statement back in November 2017, reportedly by USAToday.
“We want to get to a point where we can actually make positive change, because people come to our stadiums to have fun, to be entertained, not to be protested to”
What was to come after those remarks accompanied by the president’s incessant bickering was this capitulation by a majority of the owners to do away with a policy that mandated all players to be on the field during the national anthem. Instead, there would be fine for teams that have players that are on the field and taking a knee during the national anthem.
Trump, in magnanimous fashion has since issued a decree to those NFL players with grievances. They are to present them in his makeshift royal court where he would consider granting pardons.
As is the case when benefit of the doubt is generously bestowed, no one can or even wants to know for sure whether the president has misconceived the crux of the matter, or is intentionally denigrating the call for attention to the social injustice that plaques our society — specifically racially black members. It could even be a mixture of both. He may also be stereotypically presuming that every black athlete in the NFL has either been in jail, or is related to and knows someone that has been prosecuted for a crime and is serving time in prison. The way certain data is presented this notion screams this affiliation at you.
However, and more so whatever, when no one showed up to see his royal highness, the president delivered this 🥊 at the players today.
Asked by “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy in an interview whether he had heard from professional athletes about potential pardons, Trump replied that he hadn’t.
“No, I haven’t. They are all saying it has nothing to do with the flag. It’s the way we’ve been treated,” he said, referring to the national anthem protests. “In the meantime, they’re making $15 million a year.”
🥊 and another…
“They’re saying people are aggrieved. OK. Let me know about it. I’ll look at it. If they’re aggrieved, I’ll pardon them. I’ll get them out,” Trump said. “Maybe they’ve called the staff. But I have not personally heard from one. Because I don’t know if it’s a real issue. I don’t think it’s a real issue.”
Only if any of the celebrated members of our society for that matter bring forth these grievances; or have been aggrieved by the justice system; or feel that members of their own community have been aggrieved. Do not show up allied in protest for he will not consider taking a look at it. If they can get over the moat encasing the White House and get pass the gatekeepers by treading lightly through the swamp to see the president then he will hear them out. And if they proceed to kiss the hand of Donald Trump which would then be followed by a photo op then a few people may get pardoned or come out of jail.
If not then there is no real issue here.
This means that generally speaking, social injustice of the performative kind we have witnessed via the viral sensations provided by video footage, firings of police officers, and million dollar payouts for civil rights suit settlements are just anomalies that Blacks and their allies seem to exaggerate about and embellish upon for the sake of reverse-racism and for the benefit of racial free ridership. This subliminal perspective is induced by taking the red pill.
The actual dehumanization that does take place is more of a comeuppance in the minds of many racially white types who subscribe to a social construct of racial hierarchy. The mere overzealousness of law enforcement applied to people of color when proper racial etiquette is not adhered to is based on the perception not the negative reinforcement of racial historicism. There is also this demarcation of socioeconomic class being drawn here as well that Trumpists don’t seem to see. This willful blindness will see your grievance in the court of public opinion ignored too by the Trump Administration as not a real issue — think healthcare, education, and job security.
The real issue however is making sure he remains unopposed.
Trump’s jabs are made to stop you in your tracks from using critical thought, it wears you down from trying to make sense of the attack and counter. When you are stuck in a defensive stance being pummeled with the incessant jabs being lobbed at you, the knockout blow is sure to befall you. This win will make him the undisputed champ in the political ring, and decidedly make the case as to why he should remain a president that is unchecked and unbalanced by congress.
