Real America or Real AmeriKKKa?

If I recall he was voted out of Congress after stories emerged that he was deeply in arrears in child-support payments. A lawmaker who skirts the law... that sort of hypocrisy is not good for political survival.

Nobody wants a close encounter with the Secret Service. It's fairly easy to get -- blurt out some nebulous threat against the President after having a few too many quaffs in your favorite watering hole, and you will quickly discover the limits to First Amendment rights.

Social media rightly take no chances. Advocacy of violence against the President is good for swift deletion of a tweet. After all, they will do so with racist or religious bigotry in a crude and blatant expression. So is advocacy of a terrorist act like mowing down some people in a cause. But how do we know that this politician-turned-shock-jock hasn't fabricated a story?

Black lives matter, do they not, lest we lack some basic decency in race relations?  And, yes, Barack Obama has been elected twice with practically no question of the fairness of the process. Even if he is the absolute worst President ever, having sold America out to the Devil, we are rightly stuck with him.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.
