Deus auxilium Americae!

A Canadian Opinion

“It is humiliating to remain with our hands folded while others write history. It matters little who wins. To make a people great it is necessary to send them to battle even if you have to kick them in the pants. That is what I shall do.” – Benito Mussolini

This past Wednesday afternoon, the world was subjected to events egged on by the President of the United States. It had all the makings of shaking the very essence of American democracy towards a third-world mobocratic society. Its distasteful happenings are far-reaching.

With just 13 days before Joe Biden’s inauguration as president, we are watching Trump, whose political thirst for power is so repulsive by many, goes far beyond the pale. And, as it’s been said: “His actions are outside the bounds of morality, good behaviour or judgment.”

Trump embellishes all that is repugnant in an individual. He is the archetype of a destructive lost soul whose aim in life is to put a culture of fear into his people. If it wasn’t all so pathetically sad his character could be taken right out of a Thomas Pynchon novel! During the past four years, he has exceeded one’s expectations.

Trump’s extremist supporters, who see themselves as patriots, are riding high on top of a vicious heap of dirty rags that put many peaceful and decent Democrat and Republican citizens to shame.

Encouraged by the Trumptwit and his extremist supporters, we are experiencing a frightening infectious disease that contains no borders. Trumptwit is now the primary language common to many Americans who have become unable to differentiate between ignorance and conscientious stupidity and the ability to make intelligent decisions.

Trumptwit has lit the destructive match of revulsion unseen in modern-day American history. He falsifies credible and substantiated information with such downright bullheadedness and utter ignorance. Simply put, he makes President Warren Harding look like a genius!

The little Trumptwits, in their eagerness to please their leader, continue to make every effort to subscribe to what they trust is their leader’s wishes.

There are many in America who are proud of their great country, as they should. They believe their country is strong enough to ride out the wave of the toxic ideology pervasive in the Trumptwit society. Sadly, I’m not so sure any more of a peaceful outcome. Battles lines have clearly been drawn. The aftermath has been plainly defined.

“Mind boggling! The world of the Trumptwit – Lighting the match of hate and intolerance.

There are many Trumptwits in this world. Some belong to the world of politics. Some to the corporate sector, and some spend their lives trolling on social media. But, the bottom line is this: All Trumptwits must have a supreme leader. Their prayers have been answered. They have one in the canicula figure of Emperor Trumptwit the First, who they believe will continue to take them along paths they never dreamed would happen.

Emperor Trumptwit, in his 2017 January seventeen minute coronation speech, the shortest inaugural speech in 30 years, gave innate pleasure to all the infatuated little Trumptwits in his audience. Well, there they were, all jumping up and down in their red baseball hats, hugging each other- as long as the other Trumptwits were of the same colour.

It was Napoleon Bonaparte who was overheard to say that in politics, stupidity is not a handicap, a statement little Trumptwits in their eagerness to please their leader, continue to make every effort to subscribe to.

What this all boils down to is they are unable to differentiate between ignorance and conscientious stupidity and the ability to make intelligent decisions.

Encouraged by the Emperor, we are experiencing a frightening political infectious disease containing no international borders. Trumptwit is a language common to many people, irrespective to what country one lives in.

It’s been said little Trumptwits are analogous to the zebra mussel, “a species originally native to the lakes of [Putin’s] southern Russia and accidentally introduced to numerous other areas. It has become an invasive species in many different countries worldwide, including America.”

Ordinary decent Democrat and Republican Americans are fearful of the political consequences now taking place in their country, a trait not particularly recognized before. But they sure understand it now. And so should you, whatever country you live in.

Yet, more than ever, Emperor Trumptwit’s recent comments, including his so-called political acts of incitement, are similar to a leader of a tin-pot country, rather than of a statesman of a country that deserves better.

Trumptwit, as he is referred to in some quarters, is riding high on top of a vicious heap of dirty rags that unfortunately puts America and its people to shame. Trumptwit the American, has lit the destructive match of revulsion unseen in modern day American history. He falsifies credible and substantiated information with such downright bullheadedness and utter ignorance. Simply put, he makes President Warren Harding look like a genius!

In fact, as we have regularly seen during the past four years, anyone the Emperor believes doesn’t follow his train of thought had better watch out. The similarity to Dr Strangelove is unnerving. Trumptwit. And, as it’s been said: “His actions are outside the bounds of morality, good behaviour or judgment.”

To quote Trumptwit: “I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me …” He’s right on this one. No other modern day president has done more to build a wall around himself that has fractured American society.

Currently, no one has openly compared Trumptwit with some of the worst Roman Emperors. But I venture to say it might not be too long before somebody freely offers Trumptwit the title, “Aut Caesar aut nihil.”

Was it not Euripides who said “Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness?” Unfortunately, today nothing is more certain than an acute awareness of a profusion of black storm clouds from America looming over us. In times of storms one normally takes shelter with family and friends alike. We are one, so to speak. This time it is different.

Canadians, in general, have an admiration towards our family and friends living to the south of us. After all, we Canadians have close family ties going back generations.

Yet, with President Trump’s recent statements we are seeing a shift away from admiration to a “weltschmerz” – a mood of sentimental sadness towards a president who politically acts like a leader of a tin-pot country, rather than a statesman of a country that deserves better.

“Domestic terrorism is not currently a crime in America!

The culture of hate has openly arrived in America and the blame and burden of responsibility for it must start with its chief citizen. No other president in modern times has done more to build a wall that has fractured American society than Trump.

Trump. How could this president successfully govern a great, noble and exceptional nation when he continues to be the archetype of a destructive lost soul whose aim in life is to put a culture of fear into people?

How could this president successfully govern his people when he falsifies credible and substantiated information with such downright bullheadedness and utter ignorance that he makes President Warren Harding look like an utter genius?

How could this president successfully govern his people when he lights the flame for those with far-right ideologies as a means for them to promote their hatred?

“Domestic terrorism, not patriotism has reached America and must be dealt with vigorously!

It must be said, Trump’s footprint is similar to a spur in which the far-right see it as a sign of encouragement to kill, maim and cause mayhem! Domestic terrorism, not patriotism has reached America and must be dealt with vigorously.

Again to quote Benito Mussolini, “This is the epitaph I want on my tomb: Here lies one of the most intelligent animals who ever appeared on the face of the earth.”

If this isn’t a Trumpism, I know not what!

Deus auxilium Americae!
