President “Pussy-grabber” fails again:

So, the Dumbass-in-Chief attempted to follow through on one of his campaign lies (er, I mean “promises”).  Since the U.S. is still interested in stuff like “religious freedom”, and at least somewhat reluctant to enact  what amounts to a “religious test’ (IE: the “total ban on Muslims” he was babbling about) Ttumpty-Dumpty decided to throw his xenophobic, dickhead “base” a bone, by means of an executive order which resulted in a bunch of people from “majority Muslim” nation-states being detailed on entry to the U.S.  (even though their visas etc. were all in order).

Predictably, this has resulted in total, abject failure, and — more critically — a hell of a lot of backlash.

The “total abject failure” part has to do with a judge putting forward an injunction against what Trumpty-Dumpty is trying to do.  The backlash has to do with the truly a amazing amount of protests and (justifiable) condemnation directed against his administration — and him personally.

To be clear: these protests aren’t merely your typical “Occupy” Hipster dickheads standing around in public parks, livestreaming to one another, and whining on Tumblr (although there’s bound to be some of that).

THIS involves something much more important: people outside of the borders of the U.S. seeing the POTUS as a complete dumbass, who can’t even manage to abide by his own oath of office to “support and defend the Constitution”, correctly.

He has also irremediably fucked up on the “Border Wall” proposal:  Mexico ain’t paying for it.  Even if they did pay for it, it won’t actually “work” (in terms of either stopping undocumented persons entering the U.S., OR curtailing the Hispanic birthrate.

Here’s the thing: the ONLY possible hope for long-term viability (hell, for anything other than total marginalization) was for the Republican party — and other notionally “Rightist” orgamizations/movements to somehow “sell” themselves to Non-Whites, Non-Christians, Women, etc.

They’ve been busily squandering that opportunity since at least the 1960s, and the process has been accelerating for the past 50 years:

Goldwater’s advocacy of “States’ Rights” during the Civil Rights era essentially guaranteed that only a vanishingly small number of real-life “Clayton Bigsby”types would actually participate in “Conservatism”:

(Which is not to say that this kind of idiocy doesn’t have historical precedent”:

(Fun: the ultimate “Self-hating” Jew!) 🙂

“Conservatives” have managed to systematically fuck up at every critical juncture, since then:

  1. Opposing the ERA
  2. Sucking up to the “Religious” Right
  3. Milking the “War on terror” for Islamophobia
  4. Dan Quayle/Sarah Palin as spokespersons
  5. The Anti-Gay/Anti-trans fiasco

I could go on, but the above should be sufficient evidence why “Conservatism” is pretty much destined to become a dwindling fringe viewpoint, confined to an increasingly impotent demographic.

Trump’s “presidency” is pretty much guaranteed  to further discredit “The Right”.

Trump’s “presidency” is basically the death-rattle of both the “Reagan Revolution”and Falwell’s so-called “moral majority” bullshit.

It’s gonna be fun to watch. 🙂
