The Art of Distraction

 

The Republicans have a clown, a man from 3 generations of fraud making outrageous statements, engaging in all kinds of antisocial actions: sexual attacks of women, misogyny, theft, grandiose statements that are false and on and on.

What is the benefit of such a leader? We are horrified as our attention is drawn to yet another transgression. The far-right religious group declares him to be an immature Christian or another form of God to be worshiped); moved to overlook and forget the facts. They overlook a total reversal of his pre-election promises to give them support, health care, jobs. They forget the enormous tax breaks given to the rich, money that would have pad for what he promised. Drawn by our horror over his breaking societal rules, we don’t notice  placement of a flood of judges that will support environmental destruction, put the lower screwed class in jail for almost anything which makes money for prison owners.

What is the clown of distraction for the Democrats who do not do a single thing to reverse the current direction of our government giving it all to the rich while complaining about it, of course? It is the Mueller report being indecisive about whether Trump was aided by the Russians to win the election. The decision about obstruction is left to the senators. They scream about seeing a redacted version. Of course, they should see it all. But there is a lot more going on in addition to Mueller.

Why do they fixate on this report and not upon what 45 is doing to our country from which it will likely never recover? While this compelling circus of the Mueller’s report is going on, 45 fills the pockets of the rich by supporting extractive attacks on the environment. oil pipes and gas pipes are drilled to carry oil and gas, pipes which contaminate the water with endless spills, pollution is dumped into rivers and oceans, Obama’s restrictions are undone. Forest fires spread as a result of carbon burning drought. Islands stink beneath the waves. Coral dries and dies, killing all the living things that live on and among it.

We do not notice because our mind is on the Mueller report. We do not notice because we watch the  clown in office.  And when he is gone, what he has done will remain.
