ANOTHER REASON WE DON’T HAVE PUBLIC ARTS FUNDING

Chin-tao Wu in her indispensable Privatising Culture: Corporate Art Intervention Since the 1980s:

“The attempts of the Reagan White House to reduce the federal arts budgets, despite opposition from significant elements in Congress, did not abate during Reagan’s two terms in office.”

LICK THE BOOTS OR WEAR THEM

Everyone in Trump world manifests that classic authoritarian duality: complete, groveling subservience to the Leader, contempt and vitriol spat out at the population that Leader wants subjugated. That means us, America.

DAVID BROOKS IS PERPETRATOR OF THE CLASS WAR HE DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT

I mean, talk about elitism. Brooks blames the working stiffs for succumbing to the class war that elevated Brooks and others of the same ilk.

Josh Bivens at the Economic Policy Institute tries to explain reality to David Brooks.

He does it very well, but I don’t think it will do much good.

DEMOCRACY IS TO TRUMP

as a red flag to a bull.
It enrages him.

MARTHA McSALLEY CONSIDERS DEMOCRACY A LIBERAL CONSPIRACY

Or, more likely, she knows that her GOP talking points are bullshit but just doesn’t care and is going to spout them anyway–as we saw today, with her pathetic default to GOP dogma and its hostility toward American democracy and the First Amendment.

TRUMP TRIES TO SCREAM DOWN THE TRUTH

Joy Reid showed a clip of Trump in the 2016 debates screaming at Lester Holt when Holt confronted him with the fact that he was for the Iraq War before he was against it.

The sheer belligerent vociferousness of Trump as he tries to just bull over Holt’s embarrassing–to Trump–truth-squading puts the GOP in a nutshell: raise your voice, talk over people, erupt in obstreperous fake outrage–anything to wrestle truth to the ground.

TRUMP TRIES OUT THE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME ON IRAN

The sick sadist in the Oval office gaslights Iran–

as if they didn’t have enough problems already.

Trump levied blistering sanctions on the Iranian people because Obama’s Iran agreement was working too well.

Obama is someone who created himself–as much as anyone ever really can.

Trump is one of America’s most unsuccessful businessman, despite the fact that his father threw millions at him from the day he was born.

Now Trump tells Iran how much he loves them. And he really,, really feels their pain.

Trump has driven progressive Iranians into the arms off the mullahs.

He is a global catastrophe.

DOUG COLLINS RENOUNCED PATRIOTISM

with his scurrilous deprecation of anyone who won’t bow down to our Fearless Leader.

As did Nikki Haley and all the rest.

Turns out, the dilapidated old defamation nag didn’t make it around the track even once.

So Collins and Halley scrambled to make nice.

These two hyenas will be back, however.

And we will be ready for them.
