Silence Equals Complicity

Is This Our Last Independence Day As A Democracy?

by Your Evil Auntie

As I write this, and then go over it again and again to edit it, I find myself experiencing a massive wave of dread and sadness that this will be the last Fourth of July that we Americans celebrate as the democracy that was the great experiment entered into in the late 1700s by our forefathers and foremothers. 

I would like to think that we will see our democracy and our actual liberty continue far into the future, but at this moment in time, I don’t feel the hope that I wish I could. 

There has been so much going on in both the political and SCOTUS arenas over the past few weeks that I had to finally put something together. My anger and disappointment at American politicians and the Supreme Court of the United States infuriates me.

Ultra-conservative politicians are far more interested in staying in office than in supporting the people they purport to represent. This has been going on to some degree for the entire time that the United States of America has existed, but it’s only in very recent years that it has come so very much into the public eye, and they’re not even bothering to try to pretend that they are not. These days, they connive against one another and against their political opponents across the aisle whilst barely pretending to give a damn about their fellow American citizens. That’s why Profiles in Courage is a very thin book.

It seems as though we hear about some new bad behavior by members of the Supreme Court of the United States, generally either inJustice Clarence Thomas and/or his treasonous wife Ginny Thomas, or inJustice Samuel Alito and/or his wife, Martha-Ann.

InJustice Thomas has had many trips and other gratuities bestowed upon him by people clearly seeking particular favor in Supreme Court rulings on Thomas’ part, while his wife Ginny was one of those people behind the infamous and deadly January 6, 2021 riot that was openly encouraged by lame-duck President Fapweasel J Strumpet.

The SCOTUS, which, because of the Fapweasel, now leans precariously Right-Wing, has opined in favor of His Bloated Orangeness many times over the past few years. And now, just the other day, July 1st, 2024, the majority, but by no means unanimous, opinion held that that potato sack of rancid trouser weasels could be immune for “official actions” taken during the course of his Presidency.

What isn’t an “official action” by the president? If he farts in his sleep the White House Counsel could argue that it was an official fart, to be followed by years of litigation.

Of course, His Fetidity is now saying that this should allow the guilty verdicts in his hush-money trial to be overturned.

However, the SCOTUS attached their opinion to “official actions”, and that hush money was paid out before he was elected to office in November of 2016, so how was that an “official action”?

It wasn’t. Not by a long shot.

Now, if we are to take the Supreme Court of the United States at its word regarding “official acts”, then President Biden could conceivably order the immediate arrest of Dingus J Frump as a threat to democracy and have him either jailed permanently, or even…

I’ll let you extrapolate.

I mean, when the SCOTUS cites “official actions”, that’s clearly what they mean, right? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, correct? Or does that only apply when their president is on their political side, because that’s not what SCOTUS decisions mean.

Of course, President Joseph Biden wouldn’t do anything like that, as he knows what Presidents can and canNOT do and so while he might, deep in the recesses of his mind, think of how delightful something like that might be, he’d never act on that sort of thing.

Because unlike Dangling J Testicle, President Joe Biden knows what is right and what is wrong, and so he won’t stoop to the sort of tactics the Orange One would and does.

During his nominal Presidency, That Really Creepy Guy brought the world’s respect for the United States of America down to practically subterranean levels, and President Joe Biden has fought to bring it back to at least the level we had when President Barack Obama was in office.

If the Founders wanted a king they knew exactly how to do it.

They didn’t.

But now, the Supremes come along to say that their original intent was to have a monarch with divine rights and everything, so there!

It appears that Vladimir Putin has certainly gotten a lot of bang for his buck.

Independence Day is today, and we’re talking about someone who wants to be installed as our country’s king, who has openly claimed some sort of Divine Right to his (Fool’s) golden throne, and who will do any and everything in his power to gain it.

If Diphthong J Rump gets into office, he will go after all of his political opponents, including those citizens who don’t support him. He’s already stated that he plans to erect camps where those people and immigrants to this country would reside whilst he decides what was to be done with them.

He is not at all a friend of the LGBTQIA+ community. He’s said that transgender people should only be considered to be the gender “assigned” to them at birth, which probably would also apply to those people who have already had reassignment surgery.

I’m sure there is every chance trans folk would be sent to those camps as well.There’s a joke from Stalin’s USSR: One day, a rabbit is hopping along in the forest when suddenly there’s a huge stampede of other animals.

The rabbit is confused and just stands there; a deer pauses and shouts to the rabbit, “Run for your life! There’s a rumor that the KGB is catching and castrating all the camels!”

“Why does that concern me?” the rabbit says. “I’m not a camel.” 

“After they’ve caught and castrated you, try to prove it!”

To gratuitously misquote the Bard, something is rotten in Washington DC, and we need to act, before we once again are saddled with a mad king and lose those rights our forefathers and foremothers fought so hard to gain for us in the mid to late 1700s.

This November, remember to vote Blue, No Matter Who. It’s the only thing that can possibly save us from the dystopian outcome Donald John Trump has in store for us, should he regain the Presidency.
