David Duke: I’m with Herr

July 22, 2016 By: Primo Encarnación

Well, it’s Evening in America, and only Hair Drumpf can save us, according to Hair Drumpf. His speech last night, as we all know, tripled down on hatred, xenophobia, nationalism, and all other kind of mean, nasty, ugly things. Dark times, dark people, dark thoughts…  It’s as if Willie Horton has been cloned in a variety of shades of notWhite, and been sent forth armed with bazookas and howitzers.  Be Afraid! Be Very Afraid!

At a record-breaking length for an acceptance speech, Trump also set the bar for the longest time a Presidential nominee has spent spewing lies and listing false problems. This is a time-honored technique for Republicans: just look at the non-existent scourge of fraudulent in-person voting, which led to the real fraud: voter ID laws which disproportionately disfranchise the poor, the elderly, and minorities. And then the GOP with the “who, me?” looks avow that was NEVER the intent, until one of them slips up and admits that well, yeah, that was the intent.

So the Industrial Grievance Complex is not a new schtick for the folks who put the “Con” in “CONservative.”

But Trump is so far beyond the pale, that he has eschewed even dog whistles, and has essentially flat out said, “Only I, by virtue of the strength of my iron will, can raise us up from the weakened, downtrodden state of our nation and overcome the Others who are lurking to stab us in the back, just waiting to make us all speak Farsi-inflected Spanish.”

Just don’t ask him for details.

So clear was the message, that the country’s most famous Klansman, David Duke, whom the Donald had never heard of before, except for all those times he’s mentioned him, applauded the speech. “Couldn’t have said it better,” said the former Grand Wizard, who is now so fabulously inspired that he wants to join Hair Drumpf in Washington as the freshmen Senator for Louisiana.

So I’ve cobbled together something else the Klueless Klutz Klan – aka the Family von Drumpf – can now plagiarize:

Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Füror

Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Furor

The funny part of this is that her name is McIver.

Phyllis Schlafly, who I have been fighting since 1962, brought her 91 year old self to the Republican National Convention with the Missouri delegation.

For you youngsters, Phyllis was the face of the anti-feminist movement.  She thought being pregnant and barefoot was an honor and we women who wanted a career were going to be the downfall of civilization.  Phyllis herself got  career as a highly paid “inspirational speaker.”

Phyllis hasn’t changed at all

Schlafly, who has participated in every convention since 1952, told ThinkProgress that Trump is the candidate to best represent the needs of women from the White House. In fact, she said, there’s no need for a woman in the Oval Office at all.

“Our greatest presidents have all been men,” she said, “and they’ve been very good for our country.”

That’s true, except for when it’s not.

Thanks to Sandy for the heads up.
