I'd bet a crate of Dippin Dots that republican Comrade Pee45 uses "we" tonight

...as he attempts to excuse his gross republican FAIL in Yemen.

Pee45 is getting his flabby republican ass kicked all over the internet today for revealing in a TV interview how irresponsible, shallow and arrogant he is. As a Five-Time Republican Draft Dodger, Comrade Pee45 commands shallow respect. And this deplorable episode is draining away even more respect as the ugly truth becomes plainer about who the republican 'family values' role model really is.

No doubt republican MindWank eXperTs will prep & primp Comrade Pee45 for pimping the propaganda at the republican's Grand Self-Congratulatory Poo-Fling-at-America tonight.

For young supporters, Comrade Casino's pathetic FAIL is a "strength"

Here's a link to an engrossing magazine-length article on the young people who are a key part of republican draft-dodger Comrade Casino's base of "support:"

"Trump, in other words, is a way of owning and celebrating being taken advantage of...For this reason, the left should stop expecting Trump’s supporters to be upset when he doesn’t fulfill his promises. Support for Trump is an acknowledgement that the promise is empty.

Pepe symbolizes embracing your loserdom, owning it. ...It is a culture of hopelessness, of knowing “the system is rigged”. But instead of fight the response is flight, knowing you’re trapped in your circumstances is cause to celebrate. For these young men, voting Trump is not a solution, but a new spiteful prank...

"...Thus these Trump supporters hold a different sort of ideology, not one of “when will my horse come in”, but a trolling self-effacing, “I know my horse will never come in”. That is to say, younger Trump supporters know they are handing their money to someone who will never place their bets — only his own — because, after all, it’s plain as day there was never any other option.

"In this sense, Trump’s incompetent, variable, and ridiculous behavior is the central pillar upon which his younger support rests..."

"...It was almost as if all these disaffected young men were waiting for a figure to come along who, having achieved nothing in his life, pretended as though he had achieved everything, who by using the tools of fantasy, could transmute their loserdom (in 4chan parlance, their “fail”), into “win”.

The link below may work. If not, search the title of the article: 4chan: The Skeleton Key to the Rise of Trump

Mucking around in Republican philosophical cesspool: Bannon's dead BFF


"...the deeply taboo, Nazi-affiliated thinker, Julius Evola.

"...But he is best known as a leading proponent of Traditionalism, a worldview popular in far-right and alternative religious circles that believes progress and equality are poisonous illusions.

"Evola became a darling of Italian Fascists, and Italy’s post-Fascist terrorists of the 1960s and 1970s looked to him as a spiritual and intellectual godfather..."
