Cognitive Dissonance

Drumpf calls up the governor of Guam to tell him that the threat of being nuked by North Korea could BOOST TOURISM?!. Drumpf also says that he is behind Guam ‘1000%’, although he really meant ‘8000 miles’.

Last night a group of Alt Right/Neo-Nazis dressed in chinos and polo shirts marched on the University of Virginia campus at Charlottesville after dark carrying tiki torches and chanted “Jew will not replaces us” and “Blood and Soil”. In the original German, Blood and Soil [Blut und Boden] was the motto of the Nazi Ministry of Food and Agriculture. It comes from the title of a book advocating eugenics and living in the rural areas. If that is what the marchers were actually advocating they need to do a lot more marching and lift some weights after they switch to jeans, chambray work shirts, and seed or tractor company baseball hats. [They looked like the guys who man booths at trade shows.]

At today’s main event things turned tragic: Charlottesville: One killed amid violence over US far-right rally. A human being was murdered and dozens injured by an individual using a motor vehicle. The act was recorded and there is no chance of it being anything other than an intentional terrorist attack on the people opposing the alt-Right/neo-Nazi/KKK rally.
