"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Br’er Trump & Br’er Biden

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, July 2, 2019

If you’ve ever heard of the Uncle Remus story of B’rer Rabbit, popularized by Walt Disney’s movie Song of the South, you’ll recognize the line he utters to Br’er Fox saying, “Please Br’er Fox don’t throw me in the briar patch!”

And then, Br’er Fox, thinking he’d do significant harm to him, and even kill him, threw Br’er Rabbit in the briar patch. But Br’er Rabbit pops up unscathed and laughingly mocks Br’er Fox as he exclaims, “I’se born and bred in the briar patch!”

The current White House occupant has said “I’d rather run against, I think, Biden than anybody.”

Of course POS45 wants to campaign against “Sleepy Uncle Joe” Biden!

Why?

Just like the trickster character Br’er Rabbit, he was born and bred in the briar patch of New York City, with its trickery and deception. Gotham is where he learned his father’s deceitful ways, and where he runs his deceitful global empire which is infamous for defrauding contractors, employees, hiring illegal aliens, and others and by finding minuscule pretense for not paying them.

With a 36 year Senate history – and often on the wrong side – Biden is not only an easy target, but part and parcel of “the swamp” and would be easily decimated by POS45.

And, just like every carnival barker at a sideshow freak house, POS45 talks the banner line – reducing his pitch to talking points.

And, like every carnival barker at a freak side show, he uses repetition to pitch passers by in a way that affects them at the gut level (ex. illegal aliens stole your job, and are killing your family and neighbors by importing Fentanyl from Mexico) so that his fear-based message sticks with them for a long time.

And, like so-called “faith healers” – religious charlatans like Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Marilyn Hickey, Benny Hinn, et al – he convinces others to “buy into” his message, to believe what he says, simply by repeating the message.

He’s loud, brash, arrogant, conceited, and smiles… because it helps his persuasiveness. People like to see others smiling. But he smiles because he’s deceiving you.

He’s not a skilled orator, per se, but he is skilled in what he does, which is using oratory persuasively in a fundamentally nefarious way… to get what he wants, not what’s good for others.

And it is for that reason that the GOP has NOT become the “party of Trump,” but is revealed for what it is, which is exactly what he is – liar, selfish, arrogant, greedy – a literal political mercenary – who has prostituted American independence and freedom for demagoguery, and sacrificed the standards of a democratic republic upon the altar of personal and corporate profit – a true political candidate-cum-president who fights not for a righteous cause, but for whoever pays the most.

In 1999 Trump made a $1 million bet with Tony Robbins saying, “It’s very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it,” and then he traipsed about the country promoting his book, coincidental with, yet separate from, paid speeches which he’d contracted with Robbins to make in the same cities.

America CANNOT be made “great again,” because America has NEVER not been great. But when POS45 says America is the GREATEST NATION ON EARTH, it’s part and parcel of his self-aggrandizing carnival barker routine.

Think about that this week while we celebrate Independence Day – July 4 – the day in 1776 in which we said to an overbearing, wealthy, ruling class king – NO MORE!

WE ARE A FREE PEOPLE!

AND WE MAKE THE RULES!

NOT YOU!
