Already Happening: The Normalization of Trumpism – via TDB

Excellent post, please read.

Just Merveilleux?

“… Only the characteristic bluntness of a child, who proclaimed the emperor’s nudity as he paraded through the streets humiliating himself and his kingdom, threatened to break the spell. But when the boy spoke out he was quickly rebuked by his father, who assured the gasping public that the child was clearly soft in the head. So powerful is the compulsion to normalize the powerful.”

Interesting article- but that’s not the normalisation we need fear most. Yesterday I read a complaint that a reporter was offended by the use of the N word. Let that sink in. It means a reporter does not have the right to be offended by the use of the N word. This N word:

nword

Shocked? Offended? Good, you should be. Decent people who believe in ethics, civil and human rights should be offended. Why do…

The Search for COMMON GROUND eps. iv THE MOTTO

The Search for COMMON GROUND episode 4. Can Red and Blue find common ground as Americans and as people.

The Neighborhood

Every COMMON GROUND episode and post

Common Ground does dictate a winner or a loser. There is no white flag and no one surrenders. It does not mean we have changed our philosophy or suddenly see it the other way. Common Ground is not selling out or giving in or not being true to yourself. It is simply a place that we all cherish or love or need. And out of respect for that place, rather it is a physical location or the imagination come to life, we come together to communicate, which diminishes divisions and chips away at hate, real and imagined.

President Elect Trump: Millions of People Voted Illegally

Millions Voted Illegally
Millions Voted Illegally

 

Today Trump says that ‘millions’ of people voted illegally.

Now is a great time to treat him like a ‘normal’ President elect.

I assume that the President elect has facts based on intelligence briefings
and that he is speaking the truth.

‘Millions’ of illegal votes suggest a criminal conspiracy to undermine the election.

It means the result of every race from the president to the house to the governor’s races is suspect and that to ensure the will of the people a national audit is imperative.

Mr. Trump is the incoming President and normal presidents don’t spout bullshit.

I therefore assume that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 elections and as a concerned citizen, I demand a national audit of the vote.

No, President-elect, We Do Not Have To Play Nice

Excellent post from Gronda Morin

“We the people” are hearing from the republican President-elect Donald Trump that we need to come together to support his plans to lift up our country. His pleading is for us to allow him enough time to prove that he will make good on his promises.

He and his surrogates are asking for the public to grant them some kumbaya time with a straight face, even after he and his campaign operatives were the catalyst for the most contentious, divisive and mean spirited election process that I have witnessed in my life time.

I would take the president-elect’s pleadings seriously, if I observed actions, signaling that he truly has plans to represent all Americans and not just his Alt-right, White Supremacists’  ideology- bound followers.

Here are four signs that I am looking for that would give me some pause, but I am not holding my breath in the meantime.

1.) He is not to bar the democratic presidential nominee…
