Felipe flips for Hillary!

The hyena

(May 12 update: The following was written in a moment of  complete insanity. I have jumped wholeheartedly on the Trump Train! Here’s The Thinking Man’s Guide to Donald Trump, which appeared in The American Spectator.)

IT’S OFFICIAL: I’m boarding the Hillary train, a pact with the lesser Devil. Forgive me, Lord.

This is not a joke.

The sharper among you will think: Have you lost your freakin’ mind? Not at all. Here is my line of thought:

Trump will win the Republican nomination — or he won’t. If he does, let’s look at some facts. Only around 30-35 percent of Republicans like him. Most, including me, do not.

Women of both parties dislike him up to around 75 percent, say polls. And the dislike one feels for Trump is not a trivial thing. It is a loathing. Against Hillary, he will lose.

Suppose, by some slight of hand, he does not get nominated. He’s such an egomaniac he will run on his own, diverting enough GOP votes to hand the election to Hillary.

Remember that Ralph Nader got George W. Bush elected in 2000 by doing precisely the same thing.

Trump is a horror. The faucets in his personal airliner are gold-plated á la Saddam Hussein. His arrogance is blinding. His conservative credentials are like Swiss cheese.

He’s left a line of purchased trophy wives in his wake, including the current one who’s posed naked. Do not think Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman or Nancy Reagan.*

The fly

He is crass. He sneers like Mussolini.

After eight years of Weepy Barry, the United States needs this colossally self-centered Bozo?

Now let’s look at Hillary. She’s bad, but she’s not dreadful. Most importantly, she is not a left-wing, politically correct fanatic à la Weepy Barry and Ole Bernie.

Sure, she mouths those things now and then, but it’s just for votes. Trust me on this.

Hillary spent eight years in the White House, loved it, and desires to return. And she wants to go down in history as the first woman president. This is what drives her.

She’s humorless and cackles like a hyena. But compared to Trump, she’s superior presidential material. I think she would steer a somewhat middle course in the Oval Office.

Somewhat. With Bill’s guiding hand.

With luck, the Republicans will nominate an inspiring, reasonable candidate in 2020, someone who can steer the Ship of State back on course a little bitty bit. To the right.

FLY IN THE OINTMENT

The Donald

Trump initially flew out of the gate saying stuff so many of us were thinking. Stop invaders with no visas at the border. Enough with the PC stupidities. He sounded great, if a bit overboard.

But time passed. It became clear that this politically vague narcissist simply wants to be atop the world. He became a fly in the Republican stew, and not just any housefly, but that more disgusting sort, the bluebottle fly also known as the common blow fly. It often sits atop a pile of steaming crap.

Patience — 2016 just isn’t our year. Vote Hillary.

People will weary of her cackle within four years.

Trust me on this.

* Nothing wrong with posing naked, but you don’t want the First Lady to have done it. Leave that to the fun-loving French.

(Trump’s popularity is a reaction to the corroding American culture. A previous post addressed this sad fact.)

The race obsession

WERE IT NOT so disruptive and destructive, the seething obsession with race in the United States would be hilarious.

blackDo most nations do this? No. It exists almost exclusively in the white man’s world, and it’s something the white man is doing to himself, self-abuse, gleefully abetted by blacks.

Are citizens daily hurling accusations of racism at fellow citizens in China, Russia, Bolivia, Kenya, Israel, ad nauseam? Of course not.

Slavery caused it, you might say. But slavery existed in South America too. Slavery has existed throughout human history in almost all corners of the globe, and it still exists in some zones.  People with all manner of skin tones, including white people, have been slaves.

Yet this perpetual hurling of “You’re a racist!” is almost exclusively contained nowadays in societies dubbed liberal democracies.

mariaIt is a political tool used by leftists. Sure, conservatives fling it on occasion too, but that’s because it’s a filthy habit they’ve picked up from leftists. It’s become so common that everybody uses it. It’s now a late-stage cancer eating the innards of society.

The cancer is not racism itself — not at all — but the constant hurling of the epithet and the grievous damage it’s causing.

Racism is part of human nature, and always will be. People, many of whom are not too bright, look askance at those who are different. You will never, ever stop this. You must live with it, and try to ease its effects as much as possible, occasionally with sensible laws.

blondeTragically, the racism epithet is rotting American society, and it’s a dreadful thing to witness from down where I live.

Were it possible, I would come up there and rap you all across the knuckles with a hardwood cane. I would do it until you’re bloody and howling with pain. It would be good and just.
