I think we can agree that USA President Donald Trump is a sexist, racist bully; a charlatan that makes us cringe. What we should all ask ourselves is he anything fundamentally different from what has gone on before in the dark slithering halls of American politics. Do we really now hark back in nostalgia to the cuddly moron that was George W Bush? Do our hearts miss a beat at the agony of missing out on another Clinton? Do we long for the days of Reagan’s in office dementia? Is there even a perceptible amelioration in the depredation that is the foreign policy of the new American century? What we do see is a flim flam of smoke and mirrors designed to lead us on a path into the wild wood. We are being lost and led astray by the big bad wolf.
What we do see is a flim flam of smoke and mirrors
Hilary Clinton laughs and cackles with joy at the judicial murder of Osama Bin Laden. The icon of the last American confidence trick on us, Barack Obama looks on from the war room. Obama is seen in the official video as cool and hip whilst Clinton is clapping in a Botox enhanced impression of a school girl. She simpers with joy at the death of a fellow human being. Remember how her campaign promise was to create a no fly zone over Syria? One shot down Russian jet and WW3 was on the cards. Do you remember Greenham common and how the USA launched an attack on Grenada without informing Thatcher? Remember how the USA bombed Libya using airbases in the UK? Remember how George W Bush’s eyes glazed over when told the twin towers had been removed as he was reading a fairy story to children? He was in the realm of the Unicorn, lost in Narnia. And, if we are not careful, so will we be. Trolled and side tracked and spending years through the wardrobe. By all means form your anti trump groups, protest, post anti Trump rhetoric on social media, show you care. More importantly see the cause of the malaise.
Trump is no more than a nasty little sneeze in an American disease. By cooperation and conscience and being true to ourselves we can halt and overturn the spectre of greed filled capitalism. We need not to allow them to divide us on peripheral subjects, important as they seem. Let us keep focused on the main fight which is against Empire, power and greed. Once these mighty Titans are conquered by hope, truth and democracy the rest will fall into place. In truth we are not fighting them. As much as we may despair at their vainness, a false set of people is not what we have to beat. Forget playing cards with a cheating Trump. We have to beat ourselves. The answer is to be found in the magic of our own steps.
