MDC questions the american citizen, Is the country that stupid; like this guy Trump , Guess So !!
THE UGLY AMERICAN = DONALD TRUMP
You may not have heard of the expression “The Ugly American,” it was a slight to the way Americans behaved when traveling abroad that became iconic in the 1960s’. From clothing to expectations, Americans stood out, as if unaware of the surrounding environment and different cultural behaviors of the peoples of the world. It was as if Americans lived in a bubble, an altered state of reality. Maybe we were glutenized by our low nutritional diets. Maybe we were in shock after World War II and the Korean War. Whatever the cause, America and Americans were unaware of the behavioral state the rest of the world was in. America was not decimated by the wars, or by dictatorships, or Communism’s atheistic domination of its’ people. The world was psychologically broken.
Today we have the epitome of ugliness in an American President. He is the “Ugliest American” and completely out of synch with much of the world and America in general.
Trump is the classic example of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome), brought on by parents who used alcohol during the pregnancy, most probably alcoholism. FAS people are individuals whose actions are unaware of the consequences of those actions. Americans can’t fix FAS in an Ugly American President. Americans must learn about FAS before they can see for their own eyes how the syndrome plays out.
The damage is done, as we have a fox in the hen house, a Manchurian candidate ready to decimate the office of the Presidency and the very fabric of an America that was once steeped in the welfare of the common community.
A bottom line “money is the only thing important to this President,” leaves the majority of Americans who are uncompetitive in a crisis. That 8.5% of the population that are corporate competitors have had their way with the American processes of governing. Just like the Religious Right jumped into politics to have a voice, so to the corporations have had their influence as lobbyists with monetary clout. The addictive election process to money and donors, leaves those without a voice at the will of the winds of political agendas hardly expressing those needs of the unrepresented.
Fighting ugly with ugly is a losing path. Not giving a platform to ugliness is a remedy. Educating the children and the millennials is imperative. Speaking to millennials is almost impossible when they have no interest in the historic road that got us here in the first place. Not knowing Eisenhower was a president or an American and World War II hero makes this person quiver. Is there no interest or curiosity to the past by that millennial generation?
The Ugliest American is on the stage of history. He represents the fears of the Americans who haven’t an interest in anything outside their county. He represents the corporate greed that bucks the law and the consequences of industrial crooks, and thieves, and polluters.
Trump is ugly because when he goes “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, ain’t I the fairest of them all,” the mirror lies. Psychologically no one can see themselves or their shadows. Trump’s shadow is his family history. You can’t change the facts of a father who had KKK leanings because you are president. President Bush tried to save face with a father who lost the presidency and didn’t finish off Saddam Hussein. We as Americans are so predictable when it comes to the shadows we drag around. Trump’s mother is of Scottish descent. As marvelous as the Scottish clans of people are, many have been the root of the KKK, or the alt-right as it is known today. That is a large shadow Trump walks in.
As far as Trump appears to be the real Manchurian candidate, and his minions who want to look the other way, just remember this, Trumps first wife is named Ivana, a feminizing of the name Ivan, and Ivanka his daughter, is another example of the name Ivan. Ivan is a Russian name. Trumps’ wives, one, and three, were born as inheritors of the Communist eastern satalite countries that were dominated by the USSR since the end of WWII. Like my friend from Russia said recently’ “Russia owns North Korea, and that is because of the support the Russians gave to that Korea from the beginning of the Korean War. And it was the policies of propaganda and brainwashing the Russians excelled in that saved the North Koreans from obliteration. When the USSR collapsed the support for the North collapsed as well. The Russians still own the North Koreans, the Russians screwed up and this screw up is still having ramifications.
Trump the Ugliest American is beholden to the Russians and their oligarchs, the Chinese and their Communist regimes’ money, and the German banks who were willing to make a profit on any deal Trump threw at them. The monies to run the Trump properties could not be raised with any American bucks, because the four time bankrupt businessman has no credit here in America. Anyone who partnered with a Trump product got screwed. Giving a screwing is not an American ideal for most Americans. But those who come to these shores and think that the only thing America stands for is the Almighty Dollar is sorely mistaken. America has and should always remain a place of fair play, a level playing field. Today the President is an American greed story. It is a product sent to us from foreign cultures that found a root here. Usually after a few generations the good instincts that were given to the settlers from our very magnificent indigenous peoples rubs off on the generations that follow. Fear that is brought over like diseases that lay dormant or like the foreign birds such as starlings and bluejays that chase our song birds away, are not American in value or spirit.
The Ugliest American is a man of fear and that is the illusion he holds dear, the bubble he refuses to leave. His ears are closed to anything but the nurturing of that fear. He has lost his ability to listen and what he hears is what he wants to hear.
And the dumbing down of the children and the young adults who have one day to assume the responsibilities of the generations that dumped their crap on them, have a huge chore ahead. It will take the Boomer generation to come out once again and lead and teach that we all are each others keepers.
A new artwork by Banksy criticising the use of teargas in the “Jungle” refugee camp in Calais has appeared on the French embassy in London.
The artwork, which depicts a young girl from the film and musical Les Misérables with tears in her eyes as CS gas billows towards her, appeared overnight on Saturday.
In a first for the elusive graffiti artist, the artwork is interactive and includes a stencilled QR code beneath. If viewers hold their phone over the code, it links them to an online video of a police raid on the camps on 5 January.
The work is the latest in a series of pieces by the graffiti artist criticising Europe’s handling of the ongoing refugee crisis. It is a direct comment on the recent attempts by French authorities to bulldoze part of the camp in Calais – which has now been deemed unsafe – and evict about 1,500 refugees.
Speaking to the Guardian last week, a police spokesperson, Steve Barbet, denied that teargas was being used to clear the camps. “It’s not in our interest to use teargas unless it’s absolutely necessary to restore public order, and it is never used in the camp itself,” he said.
But the seven-minute clip posted on YouTube clearly shows teargas, rubber bullets and concussion grenades being used by the French authorities in an overnight raid in early January. Videos and reports of the repeated use of CS gas also emerged last Monday as French police attempted to create a 100-metre buffer zone between the camps and the motorway.
In January, a Banksy mural depicting the Apple founder Steve Jobs, who was the son of Syrian migrants, appeared on the wall of a tunnel in the refugee camp in Calais. In a short statement accompanying the work, Banksy emphasised that Apple, one of the most profitable companies in the world, only existed because “they allowed in a young man from Homs”.
The Steve Jobs artwork was placed behind a protective glass plate by local authorities but last week vandals tore it down and defaced the graffiti. Earlier reports said one migrant had set up a tent beside the artwork and was charging five euros to view it.
Other politically-motivated artworks by Banksy that have appeared in Calais include a stencil by the beach, portraying a child looking towards Britain while a vulture sits atop their telescope.
Next to the town’s immigration office, Banksy also reproduced a version of ‘The Raft of the Medusa’, a painting of shipwreck survivors by 19th-century French painter Théodore Géricault. In Banksy’s re-imagining of the work, survivors on a raft desperately wave to catch the attention of an ostentatious modern yacht on the horizon.
As part of Dismaland, his temporary “bemusement” theme park in Weston-Super-Mare over the summer, Banksy built an installation that featured boats filled with the bodies of drowned refugees. On the closing night of Dismaland, Russian activist group Pussy Riot also debuted their specially-written song ‘Refugee’, which was a rallying cry for the leaders of Europe to step up their assistance to people fleeing war-torn countries.
In Dismaland, Banksy has created something truly depressing
Since Dismaland closed in September, the artist has been shipping its leftover infrastructure to help build emergency housing for the 7,000 migrants – who are mainly from Syria, Eritrea and Afghanistan – now living on the site of a former rubbish tip in Calais.
According to the Dismaland website, the materials have already been used in 12 dwellings, a community area and a children’s play park.
In 2005, Banksy travelled to Israel’s West Bank barrier and decorated the Palestinian side of the concrete wall with nine satirical artworks. He also travelled to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and painted a dozen works on buildings left derelict after the disaster, including one that depicted Abraham Lincoln as a homeless man.
