Hunting the thin-skinned Orange-tinted Witch

A Washington Post Op-Ed headline said, “Trump is right. This is a witch hunt!”

Dana Milbank wrote the Op-Ed for The Washington Post and said Trump is right about the witch hunt, but what the Op-Ed says is not what Trump’s deplorable supporters want to think.

Professor Thomas J. Rushford, a leading authority on the history of witchcraft is quoted in the Op-Ed.

In an anthropological sense, Trump “is really quintessentially a witch figure,” the professor tells me (Milbank), and if what is happening to Trump is a witch hunt, “it is only in a good sense, that is, this is society policing the boundaries that they believe to be ethically and morally right.”

Milbank writes, “The treatment of Trump by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and other investigators does have characteristics of a witch hunt. This is because Trump has characteristics of a witch.”

“Therefore,” Milbank says, “to dismiss what is happening to Trump as groundless by calling it a witch hunt is unfair — to witch hunts.

Now that we know the Orange-tinted witch is being hunted, does that make his deplorable followers, devil worshipers?

What the Bible says about witches describes Donald Trump. Revelation 21:8 – But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

  1. Interesting premise – very colorful. I agree, BTW.

    But you’re preaching to the choir. And those deplorables are fellow Americans behaving very badly both according to the Constitution and their own, signed by the chief witch, Bibles. They won’t listen, and the choir already made up its mind.

    There is a lot of work to do to reverse the damage from the witches, and I don’t now how much more damage our Nation can survive, but we’ll finding out! And we can’t start until it stops.

    The only good thing coming out of this debacle is that we can’t pretend any more that things are good; we’re going to have to work a lot harder to make cronyism and racism and sexism and greed go away than to just hope.

    1. I think we are on the verge of a Civil War because the conditions and signs are already there.

      “Conditions for a Successful Revolution”

      The shooting (mass shootings and/or hate crimes that result in shootings) started years ago and has been escalating. So far, most of the shootings have been the extreme right shooting at select ethnic groups and/or religions.

      “Hate Crimes Increase for Third Consecutive Year, F.B.I. Reports.” (And thanks to DT, the FBI is also a target of the psyops campaign – in fact, any government organization that cannot be totally controlled by TD will be the target of the extreme rights’ psyops campaign.

      The warlike psyops campaign to stoke the flames of this Civil War have also been in place for years and are escalating. Normally, psyop propaganda is used to demonize another country and its people when there is a war pending or a war happening but these days psyops are being aimed at individuals and other groups in the United States that are being painted as the enemy and the worst of this is coming from the extreme right.

      Psychological operations (PSYOP) are operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.”

      What happened to AOC in the last few days because of something Diane said on her Blog about testing is a perfect example. The extreme right twisted what Diane wrote about OAC way out of context and demonized AOC through as part of their hard-wired misleading psyops propaganda campaign that has become relenting.

      1. I hope we can find a way to regain some sense without extremism; there’s a lot of work ahead.

      2. Yes, a lot of work ahead. And an important element to make it work is getting out voting … starting in the primaries where the voters actually have some say. If voters don’t vote in the primaries, then it is too late to have a choice in the general elections.

      3. A good observation, even though most people think they should wait and see who the front-runners are. Voting in primaries: will remember that and push it.

      4. AOC won because of her door-to-door effort to get voters to vote in the primaries and it worked. She unseated the 4th most powerful Democrat in that Party and sent shockwaves (and she is still sending them – one shockwave after another) through both major political parties.

      5. Fortunately for the nation, younger people have been watching the Republican implosion, and may find to political will to VOTE and choose better lawmakers and polititians.

        DT woke them all up. If he’d been just a ‘regular Republican,’ it would seem like a balance of power to alternate; many got way too complacent to vote.

      6. Yes, DT is waking up more people then he is fooling.

        And if the United States survives DT, and he doesn’t win the election in 2020, then all his lies and fraud and corruption might benefit the republic if enough people stay involved, pay attention and vote so another DT doesn’t end up in the White House for a couple of generations or more.

        Whenever I hear or see Agent Orange’s name, I think of Diptheria that is also known as DT. DT like DT is a horrible disease.

      7. Yes, he is. I hope we only had to be shaken to the core once, as the process is quite painful, and it’s not nice to see how ugly ‘my fellow Americans’ can be – in all senses.

        I used to be proud to be an American; but our flaws have been outlined in such vivid detail lately…
