Head wound

“Our side, we go for the head wound. Your side, you have pillow fights.” – Steve Bannon

This evening I will begin a six-month long Christian based program with a curriculum that will explore and study how we take care of the poor, each other, and our planet. Now I am committed to taking care of the poor through my work with the homeless. I am also committed to taking care of our planet but I realize there is much more that I can do. What I need to work on, or what I need to figure out and understand is how do I, we, take care of each other in this world of Trump.

The quote from Steve Bannon is from a conversation he had with filmmaker Michael Moore. Bannon was describing the difference between Trumps base and liberals. It was, as Bannon describes, how Trump won the election. Read it again; “Our side, we go for the head wound. Your side, you have pillow fights.”

Want to see some of the latest examples of head wounds Trump supporters are willing to inflict?

Debbie Dooley @CrimsontiderWarning high school guys!! Don’t even think about being around girls while drinking at a party or one of them may outright lie about you 38 years later and call it rape like leftist liar Christine Ford is.

Richard Jarzynka‏ @YaZhynkaKavanaugh’s should sue this lying witch and she should be arrested for knowingly making a false accusation. Let her testify, so she can also be prosecuted for lying to Congress. Let her ass sit in Federal Prison, right next to Crooked.

Gina Mussic@panessence333They ruined Judge Roy Moore’s reputation in the same manner. Since spending millions of dollars to win elections & voter fraud don’t work, they engage in a smear campaign. Not this time! Time to stand up to the liars and their defamatory theater group!

Gravy‏ @gravysrMaybe something DID happen: teenager, raging hormones, peer pressure, immature forebrain, not enough blood to run your brain and your d*ck at the same time, and we end up with “he said-she said.” I don’t care.

David A. Clarke, Jr.‏ @SheriffClarkeOh BULL SH*T This wench is being coached and paid by Democrat operatives. This is a stall tactic to help Senate Democrats. FBI to investigate WHAT? IT’S PUT UP OR SHUT UP TIME for Christine Ford. GRASSLEY CALL THE VOTE. Stop playing footsie with Democrats

I had a conversation this more morning with a “friend” about Brett Kavanaugh. His take, and his words, “The bitch is lying.” I asked him why would she lie? Why would she subject herself to the abuse, the threats on her life? Why? His response, revenge. Here is what he has been reading;

From the right-wing website Pacific PunditMartha G. Kavanaugh, the mother of Brett Kavanaugh was a Maryland district judge in 1996. In an amazing coincidence, Martha Kavanaugh was the judge in a foreclosure case in which Christine Blasey-Ford’s parents were the defendants. Now it all becomes clear. Blasey-Ford is going after Brett Kavanaugh, not because of what he did in high school. Instead, Christine Blasey-Ford is going after Brett Kavanaugh out of spite and revenge for a case rulled [sic] on by Brett Kavanaugh [sic] mother. Martha Kavanaugh, Brett’s mother was Montgomery County Circuit Court judge from 1993 until she retired in 2001. During a 1996 foreclosure case, Martha Kavanaugh ruled against the parents of Christine Blasey-Ford in a foreclosure case…Isn’t it kind of amazing that all the media reports today didn’t mention this little conflict of interest for Blasey-Ford?

And from the right-wing website Powerline: It looks like Brett Kavanaugh’s mother, Judge Martha Kavanaugh, ruled against the parents of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Court documents show the losing party in a foreclosure case Martha Kavanaugh heard to be Ralph and Paula Blasey of Potomac, Maryland. They appear to be Christine Blasey Ford’s parents.

The fact that Kavanaugh’s mother ruled against Ford’s parents doesn’t prove Ford is lying about the conduct of the son. Her allegation, coming so many years after the fact and without a description of when or where the event supposedly occurred, is probably not susceptible to being ruled out conclusively. But there now seems to be a motive, beyond partisan politics, for Ford to make up or significantly embellish her story so long after the “fact.”

And this is the truth according to Snopes: Martha Kavanaugh did preside for certain parts of a 1996 foreclosure case involving Ralph and Paula Blasey, who are indeed Christine Blasey Ford’s parents. However, Kavanaugh actually ruled favorably toward the Blaseys, who ended up keeping their home. These two facts cause the logic of the conspiracy theory, such as it ever was, to collapse.

You see the truth doesn’t matter. Ethics don’t matter. Christian morals or principles don’t matter. The only thing that matters is a head wound, get what you want no matter the cost, how many bodies you have to step over, or how many lies you have to tell. Head wound.

I told my “friend” to go “f*ck himself”. I also told him that he was an ignorant piece of shit unable to think for himself. Yea, not expecting a Christmas card from him this year. I am sad that this once okay guy now feels so empowered that he can disparage women, blacks, and immigrants. That he now lumps everyone into two categories, those for Trump and those against. Those for America, Trumps America, and the rest of us.

I quit pillow fighting many months ago. I have been firing back and will continue to do so until we save this country from the tyranny of a hostile enemy Donald Trump, the GOP, the Deplorables, the Evangelicals and oh yea, the Russians. We are at war. A war about the truth. A war about rights and war for the future.

How do we take care of each other in this world of Trump? I got no idea. Honestly, I don’t think we can or we will and at this point I don’t care. I don’t care if Trumps base lives or dies. I wouldn’t pee on a Deplorable if they were on fire. My pillow case is filled with cinder blocks. Come get me because IT WILL take a head wound to stop me.

  2. In the short-lived HBO series, The Newsroom, one character used the phrase, “Speaking truth to stupid.” That’s how we take care of each other. By continuing to speak truth to stupid.

    • Mine are both Repubs as well and one is the “great” Lindsey Graham. I write them 3 times a week. I always start with the following; “I understand that even though I am a resident of the state of South Carolina that you DO NOT represent my interest or my vision of America but ……”

    Excellent post. I feel we are in a war between lying and deceit against the truth…decency and fair mindedness for all against corrosive corruption and greed….and rational sanity against religious fanaticism and anti science ignorance. It’s not only a fight for true democracy against authoritarianism and fascism, but a fight for the very continuation of humanity. The stakes are very high and a lot of people are very ignorant.
