The Trump Tower Hillbillies : What in the World is the Matter with Trump Supporters? Are They Crazy?


Recommended Posts

David Frum has an interesting observation in his book Trumpocracy.  I know I'm not going to do it justice by paraphrasing but I'll give it a shot.  One of the reasons that his supporters love him so much is because Trump projects both winning and losing.  The "winning" part he goes on about all the time.  But we also see the "loser" in Trump quite often.  Things that would normally disqualify any other person from elected office.  He says all the wrong things.  He really doesn't know what he's talking about more than half the time.  He lies incessantly.  He's been married three times.  Chances are he really doesn't believe anything in the Bible.  He married a trashy underwear model who posed in the nude.  He's a bigot for really no good reason.  He blames everything in life on others.  And it is the "loser" that many of his supporters identify with.  The more the press trash him the more his supporters like him because he is a loser just like them.

They identify with a " loser " who inherited $ 400 million dollars from his father.

Formal academic education probably couldn't help these people --

they  just don't have good common sense.

 But it's understandable, since there is no logic in white supremacy.

During a news cycle in which conservatives have been arguing the Democrats are a "mob," we've seen ultra-rightwing street thugs beat people on the streets of NY and bombs being sent to George Soros and the Clintons.

A criminal president's deserves thug supporters.

Take a minute to think about this: Three bombs sent to the nation’s three most visible Democrats, in just three days.

The dangerous people we should be worried about aren't in a caravan, they're at Trump's rallies

Trump wrongly convinced his supporters that Clinton, Obama, Brennan, and Soros are behind a "deep state" conspiracy theory. He uses Stalinist rhetoric to demonize the press. He has explicitly praised political violence. And now his favorite targets are being targeted by bombs.

Trump is not directly accountable for what a crazy person might do, but his division & fearmongering has consequences. Unless he's going to stop praising violence, calling the press the enemy of the people, & spreading conspiracy theories, this condemnation is meaningless.

Inflammatory speech, inciting to Riot

If what happened today isn't considered "an act of terrorism" we need to drastically change the definition of terrorism.

As I said last night on @AC360, Trump has unleashed dogs of hatred - and subsequent snarling and barking - in such a way that threats of violence were inevitable. The president may not be directly responsible for yesterday, but he creates the climate of hatred that led us here.

The question isn't whether MAGA Van Guy is nuts, since he clearly is. That's not the President's fault. The better question is whether the WH and the Trump media complex is pushing the crazy juice so hard that it's making unstable people more likely to be violent.

I've said many times that "lone wolf" guys who pledge to ISIS or to white supremacy or to anti-abortion violence are kooks who went looking for a cause. They have to go find the propaganda, and when they do, they mainline it.

The difference here is that really hateful stuff is coming in waves not from foreigners or fringe groups, but from WH-sponsored rallies, from widely-cited internet sites that have zillions of followers, and from a four-hour window of hot crazy known as "Fox in prime time."

No one in politics or wingnut media made this guy send bombs. Period. What they did, instead, was superheat the political environment and flood crazy bull**** into the information space so regularly that unhinged guys like this think they're being patriots by sending bombs.

We can all hope that this will make some of those people think hard about what they're doing, but it won't. And I doubt this guy is going to be the last guy to do something like this, especially as the administration unravels more over the coming months.

You reap what you sow.
