“But first, we must be honest with each other and with ourselves.
“Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal.
“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic….
“But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country….
“And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people….
“They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.
“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.
“They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.
“They look at the mob that stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th — brutally attacking law enforcement — not as insurrectionists who placed a dagger to the throat of our democracy, but they look at them as patriots.”
Pederast of these united States
1.) I was born in 1959. Never in my lifetime has a US President — sitting or retired — ever spoken of 75million voting members of the American Public in such a manner. Further, having an earned degree in History I can tell you that not even the tyrant Abraham Lincoln spoke in public of Southerners the way that Bite-Me spoke of Make America Great Again Republicans. Bite-Me used the kind of language in this Philadelphia speech that is reserved for how Presidents speak of enemy combatants when on a war stance.
2.) From a political perspective this is all about distraction. Bite-Me knows that the mid-terms are promissory of electoral disaster given his policy failures on inflation, crime, illegal immigration, Afghanistan, Ukraine, supply chain deterioration, Hunter Biden and his laptop, and nearly everything else to which the man has put his hand. As such, Bite-Me needs the national conversation to be about something else besides his failures. The answer that lies most immediately at hand is Donald Trump. Bite-Me obviously believes that Trump is enough of a lightning rod to distract enough people from voting Republican and so mitigating somewhat the looming mid-term electoral disaster that is certain to descend upon the Democrats. Bite-Me is seeking to change the conversation in his favor from the evils that bespeak the current political landscape to the evils of Donald Trump and his minions.
3.) Most have not missed the blood red lighting background that shrouded Bite-Me’s speech. Obviously, that was not accidental. It gave the whole speech a kind of Rocky Horror Picture show macabre appearance. I suppose some would contend that the blood red lighting was a type of predictive programming intended to suggest to some unhinged Democrat (but I repeat myself) from among the rank and file to take mayhem and violence into their own hands as perpetrated against some poor unsuspecting Make America Great Again devotee.
4.) Note that the speech takes the usual page out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rule for Radicals.” Bite-Me’s speech is classic,
“Pick the target (MAGA), freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. ”
Also, there is the Alinsky type move to “Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” This is something that the Dems have been masterful at since the election of Trump.
5.) It is easy to see how this kind of language potentially creates some kind of incident (false flag or otherwise) wherein Bite-Me goes on National Television and “postpones” the mid-term elections. Now, that may seem over the top and normally I would concur but if you had told me four weeks ago that Bite-Me’s “Justice” Department was going to raid a former President’s home I would have also told you that you needed to back off of your conspiracy theories.
6.) In the end Bite-Me comes across as P. G. Wodehouse’s “Oswald Mosley” character, Roderick Spode. Wodehouse’s Spode was someone who took himself very seriously but was so buffoonish and comical that only other ne’er-do-wells and those who long lacked a father figure would be the ones hanging on Spode’s speeches and following Spode about in their silly uniforms. In short Joe “Spode” Bite-Me is becoming a fictional character out of a Wodehouse novel where only losers take the character seriously.
With this speech and Bite-Me’s recent casting of aspersions on the Make America Great Again rank and file as being “Semi-Fascist” (A semi-fascist I take to mean is someone who only makes some of the trains run on time some of the time) we have put the Banana in Banana Republics.
