Trump is too stupid to deal with this without making things much worse.

Trump has a hard-on for making it worse. He is sadist who wants cops to kill people. He gets off on pain and suffering.

Here in portland oregon, antifa appears to be in control, and their agenda is to destroy businesses and civil society. Tonight there will be more vandalism and looting more of portland’s economy is being flushed down the toilet. The media and politicians are covering for them, calling them "protesters " what bullshit. Portland is dying at the hands of antifa.

These same assholes condemn countries like Iran and Venezuela and China and Russia when they crack down on protestors. Trump is in fact pushing for a war on China claiming the actions of the Chinese state against protestors in Hong Kong as a reason.

In August 2015 when I saw Trump rising through the rank (s omitted on purpose) of the Republican candidates, I grabbed a copy of Sinclair Lewis’ (1935) It Can’t Happen Here about a fascist challenge to FDR. It is quite prescient. My only surprise with what is happening now is that it has taken so long. No doubt Trump is a fascist, but he is old, and at his core a fool–but he does have many co-conspirators, and of them we should be very afraid.

Actually Trump and his minions wanted to use the military in another neocon war of choice in the Mideast. In stead it seems the military will have to employ against the citizens of the “United States.” America implodes.

Fascists contrived the Antifa “anti-fascist organization” to further test the obedience of their cult. The only anti-fascist organizations that have ever existed in the US are 1) the US military when it fought fascists like Hitler and Mussolini, and 2) Occupy Wall Street (OWS) when they were protesting corporate control of government which has been one of the most glaring characteristics of US fascism.

Just as Hitler blamed the commies for burning the Reichstag in 1933 after his Nazis burned it, Trump, Moscow Mitch and the organized crime syndicate disguised as the GOP are blaming this weeks violence and destruction on Antifa to distract us from GOP allies who are the real perpetrators.

Looters are people who are trying to take advantage of the chaotic situation to steal from businesses that are in many cases already on the verge of closing.

Actually the world’s majority is anti-fascist. Certainly all of the WW2 soldiers and sailors, from the allied nations were not terrorists. I did hear that there was an organization called “antifa” , but, if it is a real group, most of the people around the world, who dislike fascism, don’t know anything about it.

Trump received his marching orders from the corporate state, who sees its grip on power slipping away.
This is not about Trump. This is about the corporate state. A Biden victory will make no difference. Our entire, useless political system is going down in flames. End stage capitalism.

CNN has reported that Trump’s teargassing/rubberbulleting clear out of peaceful protestors from Lafayette Park so that he could take a stroll to a church accompanied by lackeys for a photo op of himself brandishing a bible, was engineered because his panties were bunched over news stories about him hiding down in the White House basement bunker like a little bitch.

CNN did not use the term “little bitch.” That was totally me.

Yes, but don’t forget that the conspiracy between Hillary Clinton and DNC chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to lock Sanders out, played a big role. Something that the founder of Wikileaks exposed, and is still in jail and suffering for.

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” President Trump

You’ve lost control of your shit-hole country Mr. Trump.
