An Ode to Heather Heyer: Our Generation’s Crispus Attucks

This Seriousness Just In...

An Ode to Heather Heyer: Our Generation’s Crispus Attucks

By Bathhouse John for Vox Populi | August 20, 2017 at 12 PM (“High Noon”)

                                     (Heather Heyer and Crispus Attucks)

A proud Independent Voter and Trump supporter, I normally write relatively sarcastic treatises on various political issues of the moment. This essay is wholeheartedly intended to honor the memory of Heather Heyer, who was senselessly killed Saturday, August 12, during the Charlottesville Protests of August 11-12, 2017.

Like the nondescript Crispus Attucks, the first colonist killed during the Boston Massacre, an event which precipitated their break with England in 1775 at Lexington and Concord, Heather Heyer, a nondescript American, was also killed during a protest which, I believe, like the Boston Massacre, may endure for eons. Yes, this event is a watershed moment. But, for whom? Liberals? Conservatives? More importantly, what about you and me, and our progeny?

Attucks was a “free Black” in Boston who risked his neck to protest what the colonists viewed as an overly intrusive meddling by “Big Government” in colonial affairs. Mind you, he risked being arrested or killed by the British force occupying Boston, but also the simple fact that it was not entirely out of the question that a “free Black” in a northern colony be kidnapped by bounty hunters and hauled back into slavery where it was legal. Though the historical record is muddled as to why firing occurred, English troops opened fire on the protesters, killing Attucks and four others, not to mention six wounded.

Here’s where these two heroes' stories splinter, but then fuse together.   

Heather Heyers was protesting in support of the taking down of the Robert E. Lee statue, particularly against the racist groups who came to town in support of keeping the statue up. She was a peaceful protester, along with some on the right who wanted the statue to remain - though admittedly I wasn’t there and the media has not shown any proof, pictures aside, to the contrary. This young lady, a paralegal, smart, driven, caring, internally and externally beautiful, undoubtedly decided to attend the protest knowing that the - frankly - irrelevant and unworthy David Duke, the KKK and other bigots and crackpots on the right were trying to fight the removal of the statue. These purveyors of hate were clearly called out by the media. Heyer could have slept in.

Heyer could have chilled on the couch and watched a movie, gone to Starbucks and hung out amidst idle chatter, but decided instead to go out of anyone's comfort zone and attend the second day of the protest on Saturday, August 12. Yes, Heather Heyer unknowingly stepped out into the warm Charlottesville air and changed history. A racist person, not worth mentioning by name, hit this siren of peace with malice, killing Heyer instantly. The monster knocked the life out of her, but not the meaning of Heather Heyer’s existence.

I strongly urge you to read the following article. Here are some generalized comments about Heather Heyer, according to the CNN article, “Heather Heyer Died ‘Fighting for What She Believed In.’”...

-A Friend: Heyer had strong convictions; She “was a sweet, sweet soul….”; Heather once said, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” She was a voice for people who were afraid to speak out about their unjust fate; “Words can’t describe Heather”;

-Father: Wanted to help people and was willing to risk her safety to do so;  

-Mother: Heyer’s death gave us a national forum, sadly, but nonetheless a forum;

-Boss: Heyer was “precise, witty” and loving like family;

-Coworker: Heyer was dedicated to the bankruptcy clients she worked with; She told her coworker that she wanted to go and voice her support at the protest rally, but was afraid of getting shot; Heyer prophetically told her coworker, “I don't want to die.”;

-Governor of VA: Heyer was doing what she believed to be right.

People like Crispus Attucks, like Heather Heyer, cement the rights of all of us to speak our minds, to protest what we feel is right or wrong. Regardless of your place on the political spectrum, if your views are just and fair, and do not represent hate or bigotry of any kind, you deserve a voice. Those extremist groups, on the other hand . . . what can we do? Silencing one voice for one reason, opens up silencing any voices for any reasons. Fact is, that concept is the death knell of any democracy. Don't believe me? The histories are at your fingertips. Do your own research.

When I think of hate groups, and there are those on both sides of the spectrum, whether you want to admit it or not, I always think of the classic scene in The Blues Brothers movie, when Jake Blues says to his brother, Elwood, “I hate Illinois Nazis.” Amen!

Who doesn’t hate bigotry, violence, and hatred? Thankfully (granted maybe I’m being slightly naive), most Americans from along the entire political spectrum do. That’s what Crispus Attucks, a mild-mannered American, stood for, died for, and now lives on forever as a symbol of our most enduring freedom: speech. AND...That’s what Heather Heyer, a mild-mannered American, also stood for, died for, and will now live on forever as a symbol of our most enduring freedom: speech.

That being said, I thank you, Heather Heyer, for all you’ve done to protect my rights, my children’s rights, and those of my children’s children. I can never repay you, but will attempt a scant down payment with these heartfelt words described herein. Attucks, Heyer, and so many countless others are now honored veterans of America’s domestic wars.  

The Rose of Charlottesville

Young ‘n’ brave to be so sure
Beautiful beyond compare
High school grad with some despair
Took a big chance, seek anew
Heather was of 32
A Charlottesville resident
Pursuit as paralegal
Client-centered, unselfish

Driven to be a better
Caring kind, simple person
Precise no doubt, full of clout
Witty, free, unencumbered-
A loving, sweet, sweet soul - see?
Spoke for the many silenced
Reversed the unjust, brave-ry
Broke down barriers, so bold

Prophetic beyond her years
Yet strong willed with little tears
“I’m afraid of getting shot”
“I don’t want to die,” she said
Must do what’s morally right:
By now, “If you’re not outraged”
“you’re not paying attention.”
Change is surely gonna come

So, sweet Heather took a chance
To take a stand one warm morn
Got up, dressed like any day
Forgot about her own mess
Went to the tepid protest
Met up with her real close friends
Stood toe-to-toe with the hate:
The evil c’reening sedan

'Las, oh, Rose of Charlottesville....

The Neonatal Nazis and Their Hypocrisy of Violence

This Sarcasm Just In...
The Neonatal Nazis and Their Hypocrisy of Violence

By Bathhouse John for Vox Populi | August 12, 2017 at 12 PM (“High Noon”)


If the far right are to be labeled “Neo Nazis,” then the far left is the Neonatal Nazis; Hitler’s soul has risen again through them.

It struck me on Saturday, while watching Fox, CNN and Ms. NBC, how hypocritical the Left behaves - especially when it comes to racism, violence and hatred toward their enemies, as exhibited in their clones who commented on the Charlottesville, Virginia, riot. Sh*t - Hitler would be as proud as a new papa in the delivery room were he alive to soak their antics all in. In fact, I cannot help but call these Hypos, the Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America (DSNPA) . . . the Neonatal Nazis. Didn’t think the Left was fascist, tyrannical and dangerous? Think again.

Look at this New York Times article, for example. The title alone is laughable, but a sweet piece of propaganda. Kinda reminds me of Julius Streicher’s infamous anti-Semitic posters and articles in his Der Stuermer.
(JS: Proudly Emulated by NYT)

Rather than blame the participants on both sides for the violence, or stick to the topic, the dimwitted writers purposely segue, they attack President Trump for condemning both sides. The first six paragraphs of the story actually stay the course, the remaining 16 veer off into Neonatal Nazi rhetoric about how, in spite of the facts to the contrary, Trump must be a racist. If Obama acted the same way as Trump (OK, we know he wouldn’t because he’s cracked!), do you think the Left would criticize him? No!

But why this double standard, Sensei? Because if you’re a violent left winger, it’s OK. If you’re a violent right winger, it’s not OK. Oh, and you must be a Trump supporter. Likewise, if you’re a Trump supporter, you must be violent. The Democratic Socialist Party of America and its lapdog, the Fakestream Media, HAVE SPOKENNNNNNNN.

Remember these Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America rules to live by if you’re an athletic supporter of this lynch mob...

DSNPA Rule #1: “When we’re guilty as sin, blame the victim.”

DSNPA Rule #2: “Better to blame the wrong person, than to not blame at all.”

DSNPA Rule #3: “Good is evil and evil is good.”

February 1, 2016 (Milo Yiannopoulos)
Antifa, By Any Means Necessary, and a lot of DSNPA supporters, damaged buildings, injured people and police.

“‘While Yiannopoulos’ views, tactics and rhetoric are profoundly contrary to our own, we are bound by the Constitution, the law, our values and the campus's Principles of Community to enable free expression across the full spectrum of opinion and perspective,’ it stated.” (LOL!)
The Alt-Right, the Far, Far Left, Hollywood Harlots, or whatever you wish to label the Crazy Left, which includes Obama, Clinton and Family Guy, were as violent as one could get. Yet, this was seen as an “anti-Trump uprising,” and therefore appropriate. Free speech? Liberty, equality, fraternity? Not with the vicious Neonatal Nazis on the Left.

(See Rule #3)
Trump’s San Jose Campaign Rally/June 2, 2016
“‘At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign,’ Mayor Sam Liccardo told the Associated Press….” (LOL!)
The Dems and their followers, Zombie Protesters, threatened, attacked and spoiled the reputation of a decent city by beating up peaceful Trump supporters. This...while the SJPD did nothing.  

(See Rule #2)
Hollywood Harlots…

Kathy Griffin/

May 30, 2017
Griffin astutely applied Rule #1: “I don't think I'm going to have a career after this. I'm going to be honest, he broke me . . . A sitting president of the United States and his grown children, and the First Lady [had to get Melania in there], personally, I feel, are trying to ruin my life forever.” LOL...they could care less about you, KG.

(In case you missed it, See Rule #1)
January 21, 2017
(I thought Pussy Hats were supposed to be pink? Just sayin’.
Open mouth, insert foot. Here’s Material Girl’s own verbiage.

And.. here’s her words put to her own music ("Lucky Star").

(See Rule #3)
Ted “Boo Hoo” Lieu/
June 17, 2017
(Where’s your Hillary for Prison shirt?)
“All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law….” There you go, C dog! That’s why people with a conscience voted for Donald J. Trump.

(There’s no rule broken here. Boo Hoo is just plain California stupid!)

So...who’s the political party of violence? Here’s a plethora of violent left wing riots undoubtedly promulgated by the DSNPA and their lapdogs, the Fakestream Media...

Oakland, CA (November 9-12, 2016)

Portland, OR (November 10-12, 2016)

Though violence is never acceptable, the following were based upon police shootings, and, in my opinion, based upon tangible and understandable reasons, but abhorrent actions...

Ferguson, MO (August 9, 2014 intermittently through August 11, 2015)

Baltimore, MD (April 18-May 3, 2015)

Milwaukee, WI (August 13-15, 2016)

Minneapolis, MN (July 10, 2016)

Seriously, "People, I just want to say, Can we all get along? Can we get along?" (Rodney King, May 1, 1992)

Unless you’re an Angry Liberal Voter, Willing Welfare Lifer, 1%er, or just plain stupid, don’t be fooled by the Democratic Nazi Party of America, or their presidential selection, Barack Obama. The globalists are running scared and they’ve sicked their call girls, the Fake Stream Media Outlets, after President Trump and his administration. Yeah, well, Donald J. Trump is no angel but his worst traits are saintly compared to the DNPA’s best. If you don’t take that to the bank, the DNPA will take you to the cleaners - and along for a Chicago-style “one way ride.”

Abraham Lincoln and Donald J. Trump: A Brief Comparison

This Seriousness Just In...
Abraham Lincoln and Donald J. Trump: A Brief Comparison

By Bathhouse John for Vox Populi | August 8, 2017 at 12 PM (“High Noon”)


  (The History Place)                                      (Getty Image)

Without a doubt, the way things are unfolding so far in history, President Donald J. Trump is our generation’s Abraham Lincoln. Many people will scoff at the notion, (I’ve personally been attacked for saying this!) but the facts are the facts. There are so many historical similarities it’s actually almost uncanny. I dedicate this to the Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America and its millions of Soros-paid protestors and snowflakes - note, not Jeff (Snow)Flake, the wishy-washy Arizona Congressman - who live in a real life alternative universe. This treatise is for you.

So, let’s get down to it. Here are the facts…

Obvious Differences

Let’s get the obvious differences out in the open. According to my research, Lincoln never used vulgar phrases like “grab ‘em by the p****,” or I could “shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters,” etc. Now, I do not condone this, and I wouldn’t say those sorts of things as president, but Trump is Trump and that’s the world we NOW live in. (THINK: Gangster Rap.) On the other hand, Lincoln DID use words and phrases, and hold beliefs that today would be considered extremely racist in nature: the “N Word,” “Blacks are inferior to Whites,” “Free Blacks need to be colonized in Africa,” etc. In fact, Lincoln's views while President outraged many abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass and New York Tribune publisher Horace Greeley.

According to my research, Lincoln never had any affairs, although it was well-documented that Mary Lincoln was extremely jealous of any women that were around him. Was he weighing his options? Honestly, I doubt it. On the other hand, and this would have been extremely scandalous back in the 1800s, Lincoln may have had homosexual relations, if you believe author and researcher C. A. Tripp. (I don’t - does that make me homophobic? In today’s crazy, liberal-infused surrealist culture...yes, but in reality, no.)

Honesty and Integrity

Lincoln was known as “Honest Abe,” yet as a lawyer, he naturally had to lie his way to the many courtroom victories he achieved. That’s the nature of the game. Lawyers are trained to lie, or at least skew the facts. I believe the phrase today is, “they create alternative facts.” Especially people like Mueller, et al. Film at Eleven. A famous example was Lincoln’s use of legal timelines. Lincoln was able to get a serious charge dismissed by intentionally delaying the start of the trial past the legal deadline, to the chagrin of the judge and prosecution.

Trump, in spite of what hypocritical criminal-esque politicians like Maxine Waters (D-Golden Fleece State) or Chuck Schumer (D-Golden Fleece City) say, Donald J. Trump has a reputation for being honest, perhaps too honest, which explains the tension his Tweets tend to create. There’s the famous case of a man who claims Trump paid off his mortgage. Yeah, yeah, there are plenty of people that claim he’s the opposite, but then again, there are literally millions who say that Barack Obama is almost as crooked as Lombard Street in San Francisco.

One difference I did find in this regard: Lincoln lost his dry goods store in Salem, Illinois, due to bankruptcy and owed $2000 dollars, an enormous sum back in the 1830s. Lincoln vowed, and in fact did pay back the entire sum to his creditors. Trump has used the current bankruptcy laws to sometimes avoid having to pay his creditors back. But let’s face it, he deals with high end real estate ventures, whereas Lincoln only owned what would amount to a small convenience store. I’m not so sure these are of equal issue.

Wealth and Family

Both men were wealthy. Lincoln was paid in the order of $25,000 dollars per year as president, literally millions today. As a lawyer, he undoubtedly made a comfortable living, though no records of his income exists to my knowledge. Needless to say, Trump is one of America’s richest people.

Sadly, both men’s wives were targets of unfair ridicule and criticism. (What is fair ridicule, you ask? Anything directed at the cuckoo bird from L.A., Congresswoman Maxine Waters.)

To simplify:

Mary was laughed at, scorned and snubbed socially for being what we now know as mentally ill, and was known as a rich southern girl who married a northern country bumpkin.

Melania was laughed at, scorned and snubbed socially for being “an illegal alien” with a “shady past,” married to a “con man.” The unfair ridicule and criticism was and is indubitably hard on both Mary, and now Melania.

Nomination for President

In early 1860, no one with any seriousness would have said, “That lawyer from Illinois will be the Republican nominee.” I know this will be considered “alternate facts” and unbelievable by Snowflakes abound, but remember that the Republican Party was originally founded in 1854 (in Wisconsin - not California or New York) solely upon the basis of being anti-slavery. Let me rephrase that: the Republican Party, not the Democratic Party, was founded to end slavery.

That being said, leading abolitionists - the establishment - in the Republican Party in 1860, people like William Seward from New York, were considered front-runners for the nomination. Lincoln was just a hick lawyer with little experience, other than a failed senatorial race, and a few good speeches.   

Likewise, leading globalists - the establishment - in the Republican Party in 2016, people like Jeb Bush (Hard for me to say that name with a straight face! Just sayin’.) from Florida and Lindsey Graham from South Carolina were considered front-runners for the nomination. Trump was considered just a business mogul with little experience and a successful TV show. Yep, both candidates were definitely longshots.

In a nutshell, back in Lincoln’s day, there were no primaries. He was maneuvered into the nomination by his friends during the Republican Convention in Chicago at the famous Wigwam building. In 1860, with the clouds of war forming, LINCOLN WAS CONSIDERED A MODERATE by many Republicans. In 2016, with the clouds of globalism forming, TRUMP WAS CONSIDERED A MODERATE by the people who voted for him in the state primaries.

Elections of 1860 and 2016

The election of 1860 saw the country fracture politically: the field consisted of Lincoln the Republican, Stephen A. Douglas the Northern Democrat, John C. Breckinridge the Southern Democrat and John Bell the “Peace Candidate.” Essentially, the Dems split into three parts. Sound familiar?


The election of 2016 also saw the country fracture politically: the field consisted of Donald J. Trump the Republican, Hillary Clinton the Democrat, Bernie Sanders the Democrat/Socialist and of course Jill Stein the Green Party candidate (albeit not much of an impact, kinda in the lines of the resins in a smoked pot pipe). Note that the Republican Party itself almost split, though not literally, but figuratively with the “Never Trumpers," crybaby whiners and losers, oh, and fools like Jeb Bush. Sorry...forgive me, Reader.

In short, both Lincoln and Trump were upstarts and political novices thrust onto the stage of change at key moments in American History.

The Vote

This is really interesting. Most people don’t realize that Lincoln barely won the election of 1860. He garnered only about 40% of the vote. In simple terms, only 4 out of 10 voters chose Abraham Lincoln! In fact, like Trump, Lincoln was so hated that many localities refused to put his name on the ballot. That’s no s***! Thus, Lincoln won the election viz-a-viz the electoral college. Sound familiar?

Trump likewise barely won the election of 2016. He garnered only about 46% of the vote. In simple terms, only 4.6 out of 10 voters chose Donald J. Trump! In fact, like Lincoln, he was so hated that many localities refused to accept his candidacy as legitimate both before and after the election.

Now, check this out: Lincoln barely won the State of Illinois, his home, with only about 51% of the total. In fact, you could bisect the state west to east and Lincoln won the northern counties, but lost the southern counties.

Trump did not come close to winning the State of New York. However, like the State of Nevada, if you consider the county-by-county vote, he smashed Hillary Clinton. In fact, nationwide, Trump smashed Clinton county-by-county winning anywhere from all but 57, to 2626 to HC’s 487. Either way, Hillary Clinton definitely won the geographically small, highly welfarized urban areas of the country, whereas Donald J. Trump won everywhere else.  It’s kind of like saying, Clinton won three homes on your block which were stuffed with 4-5 times the number of people as in the other 18 homes on the block which supported Trump. Yet, Clinton still won the popular vote. (Therein lies the blessing to our republic known as the electoral college.)

The Issues

Both elections were watershed moments in American History...

1860 revolved around the issue of states’ rights (Can a state secede from the union?) and the expansion of slavery (as opposed to its abolition - a distinct difference).

2016 revolved around the issue of states’ rights (Can a state expand and protect illegal immigration?) and the expansion of taxpayer slavery (Can social welfare like Obamacare, be forced upon the hardworking taxpayers at the benefit of the welfare class?).
Abraham Lincoln was clear from the very beginning, including his First Inaugural Address: the union came first, not the states, and slavery will not be allowed to expand, but will be allowed to exist.

President Lincoln said...

“It follows from these views that no State, upon its own mere motion, can lawfully get out of the Union, -- that resolves and ordinances to that effect are legally void, and that acts of violence, within any State or States, against the authority of the United States, are insurrectionary or revolutionary, according to circumstances . . . [Further] . . . One section of our country believes slavery is right, and ought to be extended, while the other believes it is wrong, and ought not to be extended.” (Abraham Lincoln Online)

Donald J. Trump was clear from the very beginning, too, including his First Inaugural Address: the union comes first (“Make America Great Again”), not the states or globalization, and taxpayer slavery will not be allowed to expand, but will be allowed to continue to exist as the greatest tax increase in history, the now entrenched “freebie of freebies” Obamacare, is weighed and examined for a more viable, cost-effective solution.

President Trump said...

“For too long, a small group in our nation's Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished -- but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered -- but the jobs left, and the factories closed . . . [Further] . . . We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.” (CNN)

The biggest issue in our last 40 years as a nation has been illegal immigration and its harmful impact on our economy. It should be duly noted that the issue of illegal immigration is about a bad policy - not bad people. As Lincoln grappled with the issue of Black slavery, Trump has to deal with the issue of taxpayer slavery. But how are they similar?
The Democratic Party in 1860, and their descendant, the Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America in 2017, fought for and still fights for the enslavement of whole segments of the population. Today, it’s the taxpayers. The greatest sins today in our republic are those perpetrated on hardworking American taxpayers who, through their own blood, sweat and tears, struggle to feed their families, while the DSNPA and those Republicans who refuse to stand up to these crippling policies, rob Peter to pay off Paul, allow the massive wealth generated by this segment of the population to be forcefully siphoned off by the DSNPA-controlled governments and given to the Welfare Lifer Class, which includes Illegal Aliens . . . in the form of massive social welfare programs.

This “welfarization of the economy” essentially creates a situation where pro-welfare and pro-illegal immigration policies enslave the taxpayers. Period. But, isn’t helping the “downtrodden” the right thing to do? No! And, I believe Lincoln would agree with Trump’s latest attack on the unfair and unnecessary rewarding of welfare to immigrants, illegal or otherwise. (Look! I’m being fair and balanced by including a story from the WAPO rag.)

So, why does the DSNPA push such nonsensical policies? Simple: power. Obamacare, EBT, free phones, free housing, et al., is all in the name of control of the base of the DSNPA. It’s, put simply, a drug dealer-drug addict relationship: the base keeps coming back for more (votes for “dope,” the freebies), just as Trump stated in the campaign. Please note, this does NOT include people down on their luck who are temporarily on welfare. THAT’S what it was designed for. The Golden Fleece State of California, on the other hand, has about 45% of its population on welfare, about 18 million people. Most are Welfare Lifers and Illegal Aliens.

Country Deeply Divided

Any student, school marm, or even half-wit knows that Lincoln’s presidency was marred by the Civil War: North versus South, Federal Control versus States’ Rights, Anti-Slavery versus Pro-Slavery.

Likewise, any student, school marm, or even half-wit knows that Trump’s presidency is marred by very similar issues. Today it’s…Radical Liberal Socialist Economy versus Conservative Capitalist Economy, Welfarized Urbanized Areas versus Capitalistic Suburban/Rural Areas and, without mincing words, Corruption versus Accountability. Just when you think things can’t get any worse, a city  in Maryland is actually considering “legalizing” the right to vote for illegal aliens.

The Media

Hard to believe, but Lincoln was slammed by the media, in fact by the bulk of the media when you consider half of the country (South) hated his guts and half of the North couldn’t stand him. Do I really need to mention how the Fakestream Media (CNN, Ms. NBC, CNBC, The Disney Channel, Kukla, Fran and Ollie, et al.) despises President Trump? The hysteria was and is deplorable (Oops!) and laughable.

Celebrity Slams

Like his descendant Trump, Lincoln was a pragmatist. He saw slavery as wrong, but he had to maneuver himself into the proper position before he could strike down the evil menace. If Lincoln freed the slaves early on, he would have lost a lot of support from the border states, which had slaves, but supported the Union. Trump undoubtedly faces the same dynamic: he cannot simply abolish popular welfare programs for fear of losing what little support he has amongst the timid Republicans and crooked DSNPA, not to mention the economic calamity of having whole cities collapse, like a Florida sinkhole, due to the welfare rugs being pulled out from under their phony economies.

As a result, Lincoln came under fire by celebrities of his era, people like newspaperman Horace Greeley, an ardent abolitionist, as well as Frederick Douglass, runaway slave and abolitionist. Greeley famously called out Lincoln in his newspaper, the New York Tribune, when he accused Lincoln of dragging his feet on freeing the slaves. He even called Lincoln “a sheep.” Lincoln responded in kind through a letter published in same by stating, “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the union….”

The greatest abolitionist of them all, Frederick Douglass, even publicly criticized Lincoln for his slow response to abolishing slavery, but also rights for freed slaves, by stating to the effect that “Lincoln was a phony,” especially after Lincoln touted his initial plan to resettle in Africa the freed slaves.

Trump, too, came under fire by celebrities of his era. David Letterman, not the best example of an unsoiled dove, called him “crazy” and “ignorant”; Robert De Niro said Trump was “blatantly stupid” and a “pig.” The Material Girl herself, Madonna, figuratively said she was so angry with Trump’s election that she wanted to “blow up the White House.” Interestingly, southerners in Lincoln’s time literally wanted to blow up the White House. We could go on and on, here. But, let’s not and say we did.

Own Party Criticism

I believe this is the key to why Lincoln and Trump are so alike, and face/will face so much struggle: these two men were/are really political independents and pragmatic, but had/have to work within the framework of the Republican Party while facing menacing, greedy foes. (Sorry for the verbage confusion.)

Lincoln was harshly criticized by members of his own party, including people within his own administration. Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, rivals back in their lawyering days, once called Lincoln, “the original gorilla” a term which was not intended to be endearing.  General George B. McClellan, Lincoln’s hand picked military leader, once infamously refused to meet with the president who came to his home to speak. McClellan simply went to bed and ignored President Lincoln who politely waited in the parlor before finally leaving.  

Trump has had similar moments, wouldn't you agree? Consider Lindsey Graham’s comment in 2015 that Trump is a "jackass." Or, Jeb Bush’s recent comment that Trump would be a "chaos president." Consider the intelligence community and how disrespectful they’ve been to their commander in chief, too. James Clapper (not the disease), Director of National Intelligence, said this recently of Trump: he’s “making Russia great again.” Never Trumpers like Jeff (Snow)Flake (R-AZ) have made my job funner by saying a lot of stupid things about our president. Note that his approval rating is hovering around 20% - that’s (Snow)Flake’s, not Trump’s. We could go on and on, here. But, let’s not and say we did.

Opposition Party Criticism

Oh, boy, both for Lincoln and Trump, this area’s a doozy. Lincoln’s most famous critic, Clement Vallandigham (D-OH), whined, screamed and yelled about Lincoln’s handling of the war, and how great it must be to live in the South, was deported to the South. He came back with his tail between his legs not too long thereafter.

(Crumb #1: Which way is South?)

Sound familiar? Maxine Waters (D-CA) is one of the biggest blowhards and crooks combined all into one plug ugly package this side of Planet Mars. Her tirades against Trump (“Impeach 45!”) are laughable, unless you’re her family member; in that case, it’s outright scary! Come to think of it, Vallandigham and Waters look a lot alike. Kinda creepy, huh?

(Crumb #2: Where’s my head?)

The Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America is one crazy a** b**** of a political association. Hitler himself would be weary of joining. Consider that some snowflakes even pursued a "bewitching" of President Trump. Frankly, why bother with Waters in your corner?

In closing, both Abraham Lincoln and Donald J. Trump are fundamentally spiritual people - but not religious. Both magnanimous leaders have taken a lot of bulls*** in their political careers (albeit Trump’s is less than a year old), but never let the opposition get the best of them. At least not yet, with President Trump. If he stands his ground, and pays close attention to his famous forebear, Abraham Lincoln, he too will go down as one of America's greatest presidents. Mark my words. Thus endeth the lesson….

Unless you’re an Angry Liberal Voter, Willing Welfare Lifer, 1%er, or just plain stupid, don’t be fooled by the Democratic Nazi Party of America, or their presidential selection, Barack Obama. The globalists are running scared and they’ve sicked their call girls, the Fake Stream Media Outlets, after President Trump and his administration. Yeah, well, Donald J. Trump is no angel but his worst traits are saintly compared to the DNPA’s best. If you don’t take that to the bank, the DNPA will take you to the cleaners - and along for a Chicago-style “one way ride.”
