In Memoriam and an Edited Re-Post of On 45's Refusal To Call Domestic Terrorism What It Is

I've only now (August 14, at 5:15 pm), had a chance to update this post since learning the name of the young woman killed in the Charlottesville terrorist attack.

The nation mourns the loss of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who on Saturday was murdered by a person who was obsessed with a hateful ideology. Our thoughts also go out to the 19 others injured in the attack. 

Let us not forget the two state troopers who were killed when their helicopter, which had been assisting with the police response to the rally, crashed outside the city later in the day. 

All for an event that, but for hatred and bigotry, might never have happened.

45's prepared remarks are always written by staff members (who try to make him sound human and sincere) and he reads them as if he never saw the words. Written statements from him are always insincere (or should I say lies).  Even then, he didn't denounce the hate groups, the white supremacists and Nazis responsible for reprehensible violence in Charlottesville on Saturday and name them as he insisted other terrorists be named.


It is the off-the-cuff, thoughts-out-loud, spontaneous remarks (e.g. referring to the bigotry and hatred and violence "on many sides" - a phrase that was clearly not in the prepared statement - that always reveal his truly despicable nature. 

With those few words he negates the entire speech he had just made and simultaneously throws meat to his ravenous white supremacist and Nazi supporters without whom he would not be where he is - and he knows it. 

He has no values, ethics or ideology beyond power and money and is willing to use any group or ideology, no matter how evil, to his advantage to get and keep both.

I also can not help but to wonder what #45 would have said, what his outrage would have looked like, had the terrorist been a Muslim/Islamist.He is so far beyond anything words can describe, and we know how often words have been used to try...nothing comes close. 

I am sickened.
