Trump shreds the facade

We all know that the Republicans hate Trump because he is shouting out GOP positions that are always sold with a "dog whistle."

You can just hear their private conversations: "How dare Trump broadcast our hatreds in plain english?" "Who is he to shriek 'the truth' about immigrants?" "Next thing you know, he'll be talking about 'uppity people.'"

Trump is really scaring the shit out of the Republican "establishment," (whatever the hell that means today). But, in truth, the Republican "establishment" has been a disease on democracy ever since Nixon, (and for the past couple of centuries). Over the past 200 some odd years their different factions have gone under various names from "Democrats," to "Know Nothings," to "Republicans," to "wingnuts," to KKK, to Citizens Councils. But don't be fooled. They're always the same people. They are the haters/bigots/morons/fools/ignorant/frightened. Today, they are calling themselves "conservatives/Republicans/patriots/'real Americans.'"

Some believe in "white supremacy." Some believe in a version of Jesus that makes them superior to the rest of humanity, some of them need to see people further down the ladder than they are. And some of them don't or can't think.

All of this is what today's Republican Party is. And that is why they are so pissed off at Trump. He's showing (sane) Americans who and what the Republican Party really is.

Maybe Trump needs some kind of "thanks" for blowing the Republican Party cover.

Or maybe we Dems need to get our act together, and somehow find a cure for the disease of ignorance that currently infects our society.
