Trump is not mincing words. Why are his opponents?

Is it Mrs. Obama’s famous “When they go low, we go high”? But, Michelle, it’s not working. Let’s change it to ” When they go low, we go lower.”

Why not call COVID-19 the Trump-virus? Woodward’s tapes prove that Trump and Trump alone is responsible for the virus killing 200,000 USers and counting. Compare: Taiwan had 6 deaths. Not per month or per day. In total. Not the China-virus. Trump admits that the Chinese dictator gave him all the information in February 2020. It’s the Trump-virus, stupid. Trump’s now even fighting the CDC and holds mass election rallies. A killer.

Experts in California explain that the deadly unprecedented forest fires that now are raging come from climate change. Trump made fun of them. Improve care of the forests. Never mind that 3% are on State-owned lands while 58% are on Federal grounds. Biden now calls Trump a pyromaniac. Cute but too tame, too late. California burns but Trump plays the violin.

Same cause for hurricane after hurricane flooding the other side of the USA. Make America Flooded Again. We’re waiting for Trump to come up with the stroke of a ‘very stable genius’ to order a plan to dig a canal from the Gulf of Mexico to California for the extra water to quench the forests.

I think it’s high time to popularize the slogan (At the melody of “Build The Wall”) of: “Trump Kills All.” Wherever he goes, crowds should be scanting “Mur-De-Rer” and don’t spurn “Lock Him Up.” Why should (peaceful!) demonstrators be timid about a man who insults anyone and everyone?

Stop debating the master con artist. Drown him out with truthful slogans.

Much is at stake. Just be nice and sophisticated may make him win again.

In Israel, we also have a run-away disaster with COVID-19–with one giant difference. We are not dying like flies here. The culprits here are not the authorities but so many sections of the population that refuse to obey government virus containment orders. Many people in opposition blame the government for the failure. But actually, it’s the opposition that’s driving the disobedience. Let’s in Israel call a spade a spade too and call the virus ‘the opposition-virus.’ The truth will (hopefully) set us free too.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (https://diethylstilbestrol.co.uk/studies/des-and-psychological-health/), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500th blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry, and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
