The so called President, who happens to be the subject of an active counterintelligence investigation and unindicted coconspirator in a current criminal case, is about to deliver a “state of the union” based on lies, propaganda and alternative facts.
His report to Congress will ignore and dispute the consensus conclusions of our intelligence community. The realities of the world stage and current threat assessments of career apolitical diplomats.
It will reject the proven findings of science and industry experts. Mock the need for regulation or alternative energies. Rely on phony statistics, false equivalents and personal anecdotes not supported by evidence.
So riddle me this why allow this farce to take place at all? Does anyone really believe it will fulfill the President’s constitutional duty that from time to time they are to deliver to Congress “information of the State of the Union.” Of course not.
The President of the United States is a clear and present danger to the safety and security of our nation. Stop extending him a platform from which to spread his propaganda and lies. Stop extending the courtesies, respect and traditions that typically come with the office of the Presidency when it is well established that they will not be reciprocated or honored by the man who sits in that position.
Start by holding an unannounced boycott of the “alternative state of the union” in its entirety. Democrats, progressives and those who aren’t interested in delusion and conspiracy theory should simply not show up. Leave half the chamber empty. Strip away the politics from the spectacle and leave it for what it is, a rally for Trump.
Let those who wish to identify as a dinosaur expose themselves to the world. Each time the crowd stands to cheer their Dear Leader, appease his authoritarian instincts to advance their self serving agendas let the camera zoom in on the scarlet letter they wear on their sleeves. The mark that this outdated way of thinking and very belief system will soon be relegated to the history books. A cautionary tale in history’s annals #HistoryHasItsEyesOnYou
