A Cold White Winter From the Crimson King


 The dust barely settled on the 2016 election before Donald “All Hail the Crimson King” Trump, America’s next appointed leader, began the slow transitional shift toward his new job. Some voters sit smug and relish the defeat of Hillary Clinton, others wail and hold tight to one another, fearing what will happen next. Donald begins to assemble his team of miscreants and demons to take position in his cabinet. His current short list includes Rep. Mike Pompeo for CIA Director, Sen. Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff and retired Lt. General Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor. Multiple choices remain in play for Secretary of Defense, Agriculture and Treasury, to name a few. He has potential choices penciled in for most cabinet positions but as time draws on he will seal the deal and create the least diverse group of W.A.S.P.s since the McCarthy era. It beckons my mind to those words from a song by Rage Against the Machine:
  “These people ain’t seen a brown skin man since their grandparents bought one.”
The Good Old White Boy network of power struggles to remain in control of the U.S. as population reports show Caucasian birth rates dwindling by comparison to other races.

 In spite the non-diverse choices Trump has on hand for key positions within his Administration, his approval ratings took a small spike upward over the last week as the nation agreed to abide by the rules of the electoral process. Taunting demonstrations, where people held signs insisting Trump is not their President, took a back seat to our oath of American allegiance. People balked and turned their fists to the sky, but the majority of citizens would not chuck in the whole election process, because they know once you open that door, there’s no turning back. If those who oppose the Crimson King were allowed to negate his win, then any person chosen to fill the President’s chair would be fair game for throwing out. Bitter as it may be to a lot of people, they are going to have to live with this result. That’s not to say that they aren’t allowed to contest it, or to fight against any laws the incoming coven of White Supremacists headed for Capitol Hill try to pass, but we can’t chuck it all in. If we are to remain a nation that prides itself on freedom, then we must abide by those standards which say our election will decide the nation’s sway. It’s the same as allowing someone their freedom of speech. You may not agree with them, but you have to allow them their right to say it (yelling ‘fire’ in a crowded theater aside).

 The man is still months away from being in office but we’ve already seen a surge in racists attitudes and acts of violence against American citizens of color, xenophobic outbursts toward Muslim Americans and Latinos, women belittled and assaulted. The LGBT community is being beaten by thugs and bullies who feel that Trump’s election gives them free reign to prey on anyone they deem deserving of their hate. This isn’t a temporary reaction to the glee they feel at him being elected because if that were the case, why hasn’t Donald come out publicly to denounce this horrid behavior?  It’s the same aloof attitude he would parade to the masses at his campaign rallies, neither condoning or condemning the actions of overzealous animals that just want to beat the difference out of our nation. They don’t understand – or believe – that the diversity of our cultures and people are what make America so great. Too many dullards have been brainwashed into believing that this nation was founded by, and for, white men alone, and the rest of civilization was put here to serve them. They must also believe that our world is only a couple thousand years old and Jesus rode dinosaurs to chase down and kill gay people.

 Aside Trump’s bizarre plans for America, we need to keep an eye on the henchmen who surround him – especially the members of our House and Senate. Mitch McConnell, the highest paid Senator from the poorest state in our nation, lingers close to the ear of Trump and continues to whisper sweet, evil plans to the Crimson King. Don’t forget how much time, effort and money is wasted by our elected officials on pursuing and winning the next election down the road. Republicans now control a dangerous amount of our political system and now that they have the White House, they won’t be eager to give it back. Voters should be adamant about seeing true campaign finance reforms and term limits for Senators and House members. Those words have echoed too long on our streets, our television and radio programs, our blogs….will we ever do something about it? So as we all prepare for January and the swearing in of our newly elected leader, many whisper among themselves; keep this mad ride through hell to four years and you may yet survive as a nation, but allow this new Administration an eight year spree and you might just see that eight years turn into sixteen.
