Al Mariam’s Commentaries
wants to become the Commander-in-Chief of the United States.
This week Trump proved he is supremely qualified to be the Monster-in-Mischief of the United States of America.
A cowardly terrorist brimming with self-hate and hate of humanity massacred 50 innocent people in Orlando, FL and severely injured many dozens more. The terrorist act is the deadliest mass shooting in American history.
In the face of such a horrific tragedy, the first words that came out of Trump’s mouth were not words of compassion, comfort, consolation and condolences for the victims’ families and communities or wishes of speedy recovery to the survivors.
In the face of such a horrific tragedy, the first words that came out of Trump’s mouth were not words of appreciation and gratitude to the police officers, first responders, doctors, nurses and a variety of medical personnel who gave everything they had to help the victims.
In the face of such a horrific tragedy, the first words that came out of Trump’s mouth were not words reminding the American people that another terrorist in Los Angeles almost succeeded in in wreaking death and destruction on untold number of innocent people but for the actions of vigilant law enforcement officials.
In the face of such a horrific tragedy and near-tragedy, the first words that came out of Trump’s mouth were not words of absolute resolution and defiant confirmation that the American people will close ranks and act as one to fight and destroy terrorism not only in America but anywhere else on the planet.
The first words that came out of Trump’s big mouth were self-congratulatory words: I told you so. ALL Muslims belong to “radical Islam” and I want a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the U.S.”
The first words that came out of Trump’s big mouth were venomous words of hate, revenge, resentment and retribution for ALL 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, whom Trump dismissively calls “radical Islam”.
The first words that came out of Trump’s big mouth were cheap shots against President Barack Obama and the next President of the United States, Hillary Clinton.
Trump demanded President Obama resign and President-to-Be Clinton abandon her presidential bid because they did not utter the words, “radical Islam”.
On Twitter, the Nitwitter-in-Chief, congratulated himself for “being right on radical Islamic terrorism”. He twitted, “Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!”
On his Facebook page, the Trump-aryan proclaimed:
We need to protect all Americans, of all backgrounds and all beliefs, from Radical Islamic Terrorism… Radical Islam advocates hate for women, gays, Jews, Christians and all Americans. I am going to be a President for all Americans, and I am going to protect and defend all Americans. We are going to make America safe again and great again for everyone.
Donald Trump is an insult to humanity.
Donald Trump is a “blue-eyed monster that makes fun [and demonizes] of the victims it devours”, to paraphrase a line from Shakespeare.
Indeed, Trump is an ignorant, benighted, shallow, mindless, bird-brained, witless and cretinous wanna-be politician and a pathetic excuse for a human being.
But I have BIG news for Trump!
“Radical Islam” by another name is called Radical Trumpsim.
Radical Islam and Radical Trumpism are one and the same thing.
They are both driven by hate, self-hate and hate of humanity.
They are both stoked by vengeful anger and consumed by the hunger and thirst for power and domination.
They are both soaked in an ideology of contempt for universal human values, civilization and decency.
They are both impelled by extremism.
“Radical Islam” wants to declare war on all “infidels” and establish a caliphate which will vanquish democracy and Western civilization.
Radical Trupmism wants to declare war on ALL Muslims and eradicate them from the face of the earth.
“Radical Islam” wants to bring Western civilization to its knees by acts of terrorism.
Radical Trupmism wants to wipe out Islamic civilization by weapons of mass destruction.
“Radical Islam” wants to establish a caliphate to rule the world.
Radical Trumpism wants to make Trump the Caliph of the “free world”.
“Radical Islam” and Radical Trumpism are both oxygenated by racism, chauvinism, ethnocentrism, sexism, religio-centricism, messianism, jingoism, atavism, fanaticism, totalitarianism, fascism, insularism, anachronism, nativism, nihilism, cultism, millennialism, reductionism and irrationalism.
“Radical Islam” and Radical Trumpism seek to grab power by provoking animosity, encouraging atrocity and promoting barbarity, bellicosity and brutality.
The monster in Trump is hate, self-hate and hate of humanity.
Trump at his core is no different than the terrorist mass murderer in Orlando who used an assault rifle to kill innocent people.
If Trump gets a chance, he will do the same as the terrorist in Orlando, except he would do it on a global scale and with weapons of mass destruction.
As the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, Trump has repeatedly called for police occupation of Muslim neighborhoods and full surveillance of mosques.
What will he do if he became president? Propose the “Final Solution to the Muslim Problem”?
Terrorist without borders
What the hell is “radical Islam” anyway?
Radical Islam makes as much sense as “radical Christianity”, “radical Judaism”, “radical Buddism” or any other religion.
Trump tries to skewer Hillary and damn Obama for not uttering the words, “radical Islam”?
Hillary came out and said, “I’ll say the words ‘radical Islamism’”. Did her statement make terrorism disappear?
Obama hammered Trump. “What exactly would using this label accomplish? What exactly would it change? Would it make ISIL less committed to try and kill Americans?”
Abracadabra! Poof! “Radical Islam” and terrorism is gone.
But let’s take one step back and ask why Trump is using that phrase?
Why doesn’t Trump say, “radical Islamist terrorists”?
The reason is simple. Trump uses the word “radical” as code for “terrorist” and “Islam” as a substitute for ISIL, ISIS, DAESH, Al Qaeda, the Taliban and all of the other bloodthirsty terrorist groups.
Trump uses “radical Islam” to paint with a single stroke of the brush ALL 1.6 billion plus Muslims in the world as card-carrying members of ISIL, ISIS, DAESH, Al Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest.
The fact of the matter is that terrorists operate without borders.
Terrorists have massacred hundreds of thousands of people in the Muslim and non-Muslim world in the past decades.
There are as many homegrown terrorists as there are international terrorists.
The terrorists who have wreaked havoc in the U.S. over the past couple of decades have been overwhelmingly homegrown.
The terrorist who massacred dozens in Orlando this week was born and grew up in Queens, N.Y., just like Donald Trump.
The terrorist who was caught with explosives and an arsenal of weapons in Los Angeles on the same day as the Orlando tragedy was born in Charlestown, Indiana.
The terrorist who massacred church members in 2015 in South Carolina was born in Columbia, S.C.
The Sandy Hook terrorist who massacred children in 2012 in Newtown, CT was born in Exeter, N.H.
The terrorist who massacred movie-goers in 2012 in Aurora, CO was born in San Diego, CA.
The terrorist who shot a member of Congress, a federal judge and many others in 2011 was born in Tucson, AZ.
The terrorist who shot servicemen in Fort Hood in 2009 was born in Arlington, VA.
The terrorist who bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City in 1995 were born in Lockport, N.Y.
The terrorist who exploded a bomb at the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996 was born in Meritt Island, FL.
The “Unabomber” terrorist caught in 1996 was born in Evergreen Park, IL.
The terrorist known as the “beltway sniper” who randomly executed people in 2002 was born in Baton Rouge, LA.
The white supremacist terrorist who killed children at the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center in 1979 was born in Olympia, WA.
The members of the so-called Army of God terrorist group were born and raised in the U.S.A.
The list goes on and on.
These and many other U.S.-born terrorists are just as American as Donald Trump.
Terrorists have no nationality but they belong to their own Hate Nation.
Terrorists have no religion except the religion of Hate.
Terrorists have no race, ethnicity or nationality. They belong to a tribe called Hate.
All terrorists are criminals against humanity.
Terrorists are a blight on humanity; they are a monostrosity.
They have no moral or legal right to claim membership in humanity.
Ignoramus Trump wants to reduce terrorism to word games. “Why don’t they use the word ‘radical Islam?”, he says?
Terrorism is a matter of life and death, not only of individuals but civilization as civilized people the world over know it.
The “silent” everyday terrorism that must be stopped, NOW
There is a “silent terrorism” that is killing Americans by the tens of thousands every year which the politicians and wanna-be politicians are not talking about.
It is a silent terrorism that goes on because of permissive laws that allow even terror suspects — those individuals on the FBI’s terrorist watch list — to walk into a gun shop and buy assault rifles and other weapons to massacre innocent people.
The terrorist in Orlando had been on the FBI Watch List for some time. Yet he was able to walk into a gun shop the week before the massacres and purchase assault rifles and other weapons.
Senator John McCain said, “Obama is directly responsible for the Orlando shooting.
Trump said of McCain, “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
McCain is directly responsible for his capture which led to his being a hero.
Obama is a villain by being directly responsible for the Orlando shooting.
The fact of the matter is that McCain and his Republican friends who have blocked any gun control legislation are the ones “responsible” for the Orlando shooting, if finger pointing is needed.
Republicans in Congress, including McCain, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham and Rand Paul have blocked two gun control measures after the San Bernardino shooting in December 2015.
According to the FBI, in 2014 there were 11,961 murder victims in the United States, the vast majority of them from firearms.
In 2015, Chicago had more homicides than any other city. There were 468 murders committed mostly by firearms, a 13 percent more that the preceding year. The deadliest year in Baltimore’s history was 2015 with 355 homicides. In both cities, more than 90 percent of the homicide victims were boys or men, more than 90 percent were black, and more than half were between the ages of 18 and 30.
According to the N.Y. Times, in “Poland and England, only about one out of every million people die in gun homicides each year.” In Japan the likelihood of firearm-related death “is about the same as an American’s chance of being killed by lightning — roughly one in 10 million.”
Incredibly, Trump said if there had been more people with guns at the Orlando nightclub, the tragedy could have been averted. Trump told CNN, “If you had some guns in that club the night that this took place, if you had guns on the other side, you wouldn’t have had the tragedy that you had.” In other words, if everybody in society is armed mass shootings can be stopped more quickly.
In fact, right after the terrorist first opened fire at the Orlando club, an off-duty police officer working as a security guard exchanged gunfire with him. But the officer was simply outgunned. The officer’s handgun was no match for the terrorist’s military-grade assault rifle.
Trump’s new slogan, “Make America the great OK Corral!”
Not only does Trump want everyone in America packing heat and sporting an assault rifle, he also wants every American to snitch on one another. He said, “We need to make sure every single person involved in this plan, including anyone who knew something, but didn’t tell us, is brought to justice. If it can be proven that somebody had information about any attack, and did not give this information to authorities, they must serve prison time.”
That is exactly what they did in Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Russia and other totalitarian countries.
Trump wants a kinder and gentler Gestapo State in America.
Heil, Trump! Go to hell, Trump!
Trump is a monster because he is a sociopath
Trump is a sociopath. He displays his sociopathy everyday with the aid of a mindless media eager to be in his service.
The sociopath has defining qualities: grandiose sense of self, pathological lying, self-delusion, social manipulation and conning, lack of remorse, empathy, shame and guilt, verbal outbursts and a deep seated rage against humanity. For the sociopath, the end always justifies the means.
Time to wrestle with a pig and speak truth to the power-hungry
George Bernard Shaw said, “Never wrestle with a pig. You get dirty and the pig likes it.”
Sometimes there is no choice: One has got to put on shorts, roll up sleeves and jump into the mud and wrestle with a pig.
A pig after wallowing happily in the mud is still a pig. Everyone else can take a shower.
For those who are not willing to stand up, muster the courage and and speak truth to the power hungry and abusers of power, let them remember the words of Pastor Martin Niemoller, which I paraphrase below:
First, they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Muslim.
Then they came for the “Mexicans”, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not Mexican.
Then they came for the immigrants, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not an immigrant.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me—
And there was no one left to speak for me.
VOTE DONALD TRUMP MONSTER-IN-MISCHIEF OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 2016.
