Retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn has been offered the national security advisor post in President-elect Trump’s cabinet. It is unbelievable that President-elect Trump has had time to appoint anyone to any position considering all the work he’s been burdened with. And with which he has steadfastly, resolutely and diligently been doing—the draining of the swamp.

Whoa… I am awake now. Damm narcolepsy; it’s so friggin intermittent! I could really use a Rip Van Winkle style slumber. I dozed off right after hearing the Flynn appointment screech. A Darwinian defense mechanism, I guess. It must have been triggered to avoid post traumatic stress vibrations. Thanks Mr. Darwin. I owe you one.

Back to Flynn, and thereby back to making America great again; back to when the white man was given de facto dominion over wherever and whomever he chose to reign. The good old days: with sundown towns.1 With systematic disenfranchisement built Right into the New Deal. “Back to those inglorious days when heroes weren’t zeros. Before fair was square. When the cavalry came straight away. And all-American men were like Hemingway. To the days of the wondrous….”2

Fuck, now that is depressing . . . and suppressing, and grounds to petition government for a redress of grievances. Except by the time the trumpet sounds on January 20th, 2017, Our Government will be gorging itself on the Constitution and on the Bill of Rights—and all on day one! And then it will take the seat it reserved so many months ago for dessert. It will walk briskly down the road and consume the open seat on the Supreme Court. A tasty treat denied its rightful owner, the 44th President of the United States.

To insure all this goes off without a hitch, enter the flim-flam man: Retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn as National Security Advisor. He will surely provide an uneasy and an insecure feeling to the masses who reject the racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, homophobic and misogynistic platform of President-elect Trump and his trumpeters.

This man, the Flim-Flam Man, was forced out of the Pentagon’s top intelligence job in 2014 for his combative style. He has tweeted a series of tweets calling fear of Muslims rational.  And in August of this year, he compared Islam to cancer by stating the following:

“Islam is a political ideology. It is a political ideology. It definitely hides behind this notion of it being a religion. I don’t see a lot of people screaming ‘Jesus Christ’ with hatchets or machetes or rifles, shooting up clubs or hatcheting, you know literally axing families on a train . . . so it’s like cancer.”

We’ll, being a flim-flam man, facts would just get in the way for Flynn. Like the fact of Christianity’s hijacked past. A past where Wackos burned women at the stake, or tortured them for days on end before drowning them simply because they chose to practice midwifery, and for practicing less scary things that those of the cloth chose not to understand. But those deaths were probably more preferable to the women than having President-elect Trump or his trumpeters grab them by the pussy. You might challenge me by saying that that is Christianity’s distant past.

Well, let’s get enlightened and move towards Christianity’s more contemporary times. Like the 1980s when doctors, nurses and assorted healthcare professionals feared going to work, and feared for their family’s safety, and for their very lives. I am of course referencing the bombing of clinics while screaming Jesus Christ; or even more contemporary times that the  Boston Globe’s Spotlight exposed: the raping of little boys while the clergy praised Jesus Christ.

Don’t think Christianity can’t be hijacked again. Stay awake. January 20th, 2017, is pulling into the station. On a train that no doubt will be used for deportation. Where I have seen that before?—Germany!? “That can’t happen here,” you say. Well, stay tuned for film at eleven.

There have always been, and there will always be religious wack-jobs. Past and modern trumpelites if you will. Here’s a small sampling of some current wack-jobs: ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, GOP Trump Supporters. Every sector of society has a few wack-jobs within its ranks. And every family has a crazy uncle or wacky aunt too; if you can’t identify who it is at Thanksgiving dinner—moi?

And on January 20th, 2017, the wackest wack-job America has ever endorsed will be given dominion over the US, over us. . . .

I am so sick and tired of selective amnesia.
