    We already have 4 threads that refer to the recent riots, but we need yet another to tie them all together. *

    First off, the ad below was on Daily Kos this morning:

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/5/31/1949305/--New-ad-hits-Trump-hard-on-hate-and-violence?detail=emaildkre

    Next, in a call to state governors this morning, Trump, who has been besieged by protests and fires outside the White House, took a hard line on Monday in a call with state governors. “You have to arrest people,” the president said, warning that governors would look like “jerks” if they did not crack down.

    In his first Inaugural Address, and hopefully his last, Donald Trump talked about American carnage. He got it this week. What we couldn’t have known in January 2017 is that he wasn’t here to save us from this carnage, but to perpetuate it; that incitement wasn’t just a feature of his campaign, but of his governance. When historians look back at the Trump era, they may very well say his presidency was encapsulated by this moment, when a sadistic cop knelt on the neck of an African-American man for almost nine minutes in plain view and the streets exploded in rage.

    Inside the White House, the mood was bristling with tension. Hundreds of protesters were gathering outside the gates, shouting curses at President Trump and in some cases throwing bricks and bottles. Nervous for his safety, Secret Service agents abruptly rushed the president to the underground bunker used in the past during terrorist attacks.

    Mr. Trump remained cloistered inside, periodically sending out Twitter messages like “LAW & ORDER!” until the evening, when he went quiet. While some aides urged him to keep off Twitter, Mr. Trump could not resist blasting out a string of messages earlier in the day berating Democrats for not being tough enough and attributing the turmoil to radical leftists.

    There have been reports that police in some areas are linking arms or kneeling with the protesters, which is EXACTLY needs to be done to bring calm to the streets. Trump is taking exactly the wrong approach, which will only make things worse.

    * Police brutality needs to stop

    Trump is not the only official fanning the flames.

    Zimbabwe summoned its US ambassador over remarks by a senior American official accusing the southern African country of stirring anti-racism protests over the death of George Floyd.

    In an interview with ABC news on Sunday, US national security adviser Robert O'Brien referred to Zimbabwe and China as "foreign adversaries" using social media to stoke unrest and "sow discord", without citing any evidence.

    Zimbabwe's foreign ministry spokesman James Manzou said US Ambassador Brian Nichols was called in to explain O'Brien's remarks on Monday.

    If you pull up the thread titled "the revolving door", you'll notice that Robert O'Brien is Trump's SIXTH national security adviser.

    Trump complained that the underground "bunker" was an "mess and dirty" because Obama had never cleaned it. Wow, and that about 4 years later; while Obama never used it, because he did not need to. So, if Trump never had it "cleaned", then I think he never cleans his dirty underwear either; the "chicken head". Melania does not look like, she ever cleaned anything, except may be pick up an used condom laying around the place. Lots of fun lately; Putin is just about dying from laughing.

    Breaking news. Trump holding bible in front of St John's church

    http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/watch/protestors-reportedly-forced-out-of-lafayette-park-so-trump-could-visit-st-john-s-church-84205125587

    This happened a few minutes ago after Trump's press conference threatening military action against protestors. He leaves the press conference, has the protestors cleaned out so he can go to the church and have a photo op holding up the bible.

    WTF. Sheeesh! I am a loss for words.

    President Trump walked across from White House to St. John's Church to hold up a bible for a photo op

    I guess even the long dead Jesus got the shock of his "dust" ; who says it was an "bible"? Likely it was the "Mein Kampf" book which keeps on his nightstand!! Since he never reads anything, someone must have loaned him another "book".

    Or it was the book of Alice in Wonderland?. On the cover it does not say anything! May be the Smithsonian puts it on display in the future as an artifact of the Trump period.

    His hands are so white because he never worked a day in his life. May be Putin can offer him an real good job in Siberia after he's out.

    In the meantime I filled 8 barf buckets.

    On December 9, 2018, I posted a blog titled " The John Birch Society". The paragraph posted below is still very applicable today:

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    A few years back, a former member of this site named Veronica (who the John Birch Society had tried to recruit) offered some insightful ideas about the organization. Although it would be difficult to pick up her posts today, the best insider’s look that I have seen is a book titled, “Wrapped in the Flag: A Personal History of America’s Radical Right”. The author is Claire Connor, whose parents were very active members of the John Birch Society in its early years. Although I would recommend reading the book, the link below will give you a pretty good synopsis:

    https://www.thenation.com/article/growing-john-birch-society/

    Donald Trumps’ father, of course, was a supporter of the KKK, and the Jamaica Estates area of Queens where the family lived was a breeding ground for white nationalist ideas. The local orthodontist even had pamphlets from the John Birch Society in his waiting room. Consequently, it shouldn’t surprise any of us that Donald thought there were “fine people on both sides” in Charlottesville in 2017.

    https://qz.com/814851/donald-trumps-childhood-in-queens-can-explain-his-obsession-with-borders/

    It also should not surprise you that the current leader of the KKK, pastor Thomas Robb, felt that Donald Trump was "the pick of the litter" in the 2016 presidential race:

    http://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archives/2016/03/04/current-leader-of-kkk-donald-trump-is-the-pick-of-the-litter

    *************************************

    You've likely seen the phrase " when Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross”. Although Sinclair Lewis has been given credit for the phrase, he never actually wrote those words, even though similar thoughts were in his other novels.

    The reason I cited Claire Connor's book is that her parents (among the first John Birch members in Chicago) where firm believers that religion and uber patriotism were the most important things in society.

    The Right Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, was seething.

    Before heading to the church, where presidents have worshiped since the days of James Madison, Trump gave a speech at the White House emphasizing the importance of law and order. Federal police officers then used force to clear a large crowd of peaceful demonstrators from the street between the White House and the church, apparently so Trump could make the visit.

    “I am outraged,” Budde said in a telephone interview a short time later, pausing between words to emphasize her anger as her voice slightly trembled.

    She said she had not been given any notice that Trump would be visiting the church, and did not approve of the manner in which the area was secured for his appearance.

    “I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call, that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop,” Budde said.

    Everything he has said and done is to inflame violence,” Budde of the president. “We need moral leadership, and he’s done everything to divide us.”

    In a written statement, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, head of the Episcopal denomination, accused Trump of using “a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes.”

    I saw on Facebook an photo of Hitler holding an "bibble" the same way; I could not yet copy that picture, because my e-mail server quit. But lately all the Hitler "things" pop out of Trump. It is really scary indeed. It starts looking like the"crystal night" in the 1930's when the razia's started on the Jews. At that time also the "looting" took place.

    Like I've said: L'histoire ce repette.

    This morning Trump and Melania went to an statue of some idiot bishop for another photo-op. The Catholics must love him for sure by now. How really sick can you get?? Yes Catholic "voters" use your brains for a change and don't fall for this hypocrite!! He's not only an un-believer but is using you, to get votes!!!

    He's the her -rising of Hitler; the only difference being that he is not using the Jews, but the blacks and colored people instead, to be able to become an same dictator as Hitler or Stalin etc.

    Wake up America!

    No Dutch, it's not the catholics he is trying to appeal to, it's the evangelicals, you know, the baptists and the other right wing fringe religions.

    Trump claims he is a law and order president, which means he'll use the law to circumvent people's rights to peacefully assemble, during the gassing of the protesters near that church, he tromped people's rights to freely assemble, violating the first amendment using government people, this is what he plans to do in major cities as he said in his briefing, citizens had better be careful, he could send jackboot thugs into cities where they're not wanted.

    Dock, he did such because Nancy, Biden, Barr, Pompeo etc. are all Catholic!!! That is why I pointed to to the Catholic's. Don't forget this was the most murderous church in history, ask Joan of Arc and the Templars,

    It has nothing to do with religion; all of it is manipulation and uproar tactics. Typical "mafia" practices he learned while in NY from his Dad.

    I saw he went even further than that; he went inside the church with Melania also for an photo-op; looking at her, she hated it; he showed her to "smile" but she kind of refused.

    If the "catholic's" in this country fall for this "faked" circus, then it shows that they are way too stupid to even know that babies and holy priests don't fall from the sky. But looking at Pompeo and Pence, then indeed I believe that "catholic" stupidity is "baked in" and such people never should be in any government function.
