Symp­tom of dis­ease

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Hur­ray for Philip Martin fi­nally un­load­ing on Trump. It’s about time, Mr. Martin, but thank you all the same. You have been softly sand­bag­ging us pro­gres­sives since Drumph was elected (eons ago as if a mega-black hole formed on Elec­tion Day 2016 and has slowed down the time-space con­tin­uum ever since). You have been quite de­mure, ap­par­ently not want­ing to step on any­one’s toes. But I imag­ine the emails from the right have taken their toll. (I bet you said enough is enough.)

This past Sun­day you fi­nally un­loaded both bar­rels and gave Drumph and his acolytes the lec­ture (hell) they de­serve (but won’t hear). Harry Tru­man would be proud of you. I’m proud of you!

The other side of the coin, though, is that that black-hole ef­fect isn’t go­ing away any­time soon. The cock­roaches are out. En­abled, recharged, and im­mune to any com­mon sense, de­cency, or re­spect for others dif­fer­ent than them­selves, that 40 per­cent (and drop­ping ever so grad­u­ally) who voted in this con­man as the pres­i­dent of the United States of Amer­ica have their mojo up (and guns loaded). It seems it’s great to be a racist and a bully and a crook in Amer­ica to­day. I be­lieve Drumph is the symp­tom of a dis­ease … an in­fes­ta­tion. It will take a long, long time to sweep them back un­der the rug. Long af­ter Drumph is gone, but not for­got­ten.
