[On Trump] Talented and well-practiced in every vice, a stranger to compassion or empathy, a liar and a cheat so complete in perfidy that he has elevated his dishonesty to hold it up as an ersatz moral principle, violent, so long as he can order someone else to do the dirty work, grotesque in body, graceless in action, in possession of a wounded self-regard so colossal as to smother any spark of grace, treasonous, not only to country, but to every ally he has ever had, the poisoned fruit and rankest flower of racism and contempt for women, and utterly devoid of shame for his moral and spiritual bankruptcy.
That is your leader. That is to whom you give your money. That is who you follow and laud. That is whose banner you willingly carry. Why? Because he is a mirror, not a lighthouse. You see yourselves in him. He is what you would be, if you had inherited money and could shed the last vestiges of conscience and shame.
No, I do not “respect your choices,” nor do I admire your loyalty and dedication to this miserific, demoniac vision. You have demonstrated not only a lack of civic virtue, loyalty to the Republic and to the rule of law, but a willingness to engage in violence and sedition at his slightest expressed wish. And you will never, ever admit you were wrong.
Because you see your dark, twisted, resentful dreams in him. And to renounce him is to renounce yourselves.” https://similarworlds.com/public-figures/4229795-Stable-Genius-Talented-and-well-practiced-in-every

    Excellent, however the chance that any Trump supporter would read this, and understand it, is infinitessimally small.

    • admin says:

      I know it would be vanishingly small, but it may seep out into the general public, and eventually make its way into the broader consciousness.

  • Michael says:

    I teared up a little. Beautifully appropriate.

    Hi. Your text so aptly describes our own brazilian version of Trump, Bolsonaro, that I had the temerity to translate it to Brazilian portuguese. How should I attribute the authorship to you? I await your answer eagerly, as I’m sure it will be a hit here in Brazil. We wage a bitter war against the fake news machine (I’m talking about dozens of employees managing 30-40 different fake IDs each, working every day in alternate shifts). You wouldn’t believe the lying, the eye-poking, the adulterated videos, the frankly bizarre/pornographic notions and whatnot against this essentially tepid center-a-wee-bit-to-the-left government of Lula’s. And I may be mistaken but I think people just might take to copying and pasting your text as a riposte against those orcs.
