Editor’s Note: in the days following the now obviously catastrophic 2016 US Presidential election, I have often found myself in heated arguments with both lazy liberals and Trump supporters about the obviously dangerous and utterly terrifying, openly nationalist tone the Trump Presidency is already taking. Throughout these discussions, I have become increasingly frustrated as people who (for reasons I don’t entirely understand) believe in Trump’s essential honesty, remain largely unaware of the sickening horde of bigots, neocon warmongers and corrupt, shitheel mutants he’s surrounding himself with long before he even officially takes office.
Although I have long held the belief that Donald Trump is at once deadly serious about his hateful anti-Islamic rhetoric and wholly uninterested in fulfilling his more populist promises; his recent cabinet selections (the people who will form and ultimately run Trump’s government) are far beyond even my most horrifying nightmares. It is therefore in the interests of public knowledge and our never-ending quest to expose government fuckery that I’d like to introduce a new Info Meme series dedicated to informing readers about the sadist pack of bigoted jackanapes Trump is bringing into the US Government with him; a group I’ve taken to describing collectively as the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
For those of you unfamiliar with the format; the Info Meme of the Week is a semi-regular feature where we a look at one issue, scandal or even person largely being misreported in the media in the form of a single, easy-to-share meme that’s backed up by a few verifiable sources underneath the photo. No rants, speeches or explanations required – just the facts, in one quick snapshot you can show obnoxious “MAGA” trolls who’re shitting up your mentions with false praise for their mad swine emperor Trump.
First up in our nauseating gallery of mad rogues is retired Lt General and new National Security Advisor Michael Flynn; a dangerous, arrogant islamophobe who rightfully terrifies critics on both the left and right sides of the American political spectrum:
Well, he’s just a real peach; isn’t he? In addition to being openly, even gleefully bigoted towards an entire global religion, Flynn has the decided “advantage” of being hated or feared by almost everyone he’s ever worked with in the military – people who’ve described him as “nutty” or “unhinged” and his behavior during the election as unethical. Naturally, this has done little to deter Flynn; a man who claims his previous ouster at the DIA was a result of his refusal to go along with the Obama administration and not his “bad management” as noted by former Secretary of State Colin Powell in hacked messages released as part of Wikileaks Podesta emails project. Let’s just say that arrogant, dishonest and bigoted isn’t exactly the ideal personality makeup for a National Security Advisor who the inexperienced President will rely on to help fashion critical foreign policy.
Note: Please be reminded that if you’re having trouble reading this Info Meme, you can simply right click on the picture and select “view this image” to pop out a larger version. Additionally, please feel free to post this meme anywhere you like and remember that you can provide sources for skeptical observers and people who simply don’t have a fucking clue what their talking about by linking them back to this post.
By all objective measures, Donald Trump is currently assembling the most terrifyingly nationalist and simultaneously warlike government in the history of the United States; these notably “unhinged” men will be granted tremendous power and influence over the course of American history for the next four years – our only hope in stopping them from royally fucking everything up may now be utterly dependent on knowing the enemy and aggressively protesting their twisted machinations while there’s still a United States left to save.
Never forget that fascism, nationalism and imperialism are comfortable bedfellows and easy allies; it’s high past time we started dragging the new, all-American version of that alliance out into the light for all the world to see.
