UPDATED: Trump's America

From Facebook: Three Racists attack innocent Black man while yelling "Get out of my country!" Is this what they mean when they say make America great?

UPDATE: That this happens in Canada makes me feel deeply ashamed for my country:

Police are looking for a man in connection with a possible hate crime at a south Edmonton LRT station.

The man approached two young women wearing hijabs at the University of Alberta station at 8:20 p.m. on Nov. 8, police say.

The man, believed to be in his 60s, pulled a rope from his pocket, tied a noose and said: "This is for you."

The man then proceeded to sing O Canada in front of the women, one of whom shot video of the performance.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the man to call 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. They can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.

Let us all hope this miscreant is brought to swift justice.


  1. Memories of lynching come to mind for me Lorne.Is it because racism is resurfacing or is because it never left?

    Not sure also what Trump means by "draining the swamp." One just has to look at these 3 racist morons to know whose living in that swamp.

    "Make America Great Again" A marketing slogan based on nothing. America was never great.

    1. Increasing, Pamela, the U.S. shows evidence of being a failed nation-state. Trump's presidency will likely only accelerate its decline.

  2. .. the US of A is showing distinct signs of lead poisoning .. That's a variation of 'mad hatter' mercury poisoning.. though related to automobiles and fuel..

    Mr Trump presents with his own unique medical maladies.. perhaps best described by Charles Dickens.. I'm not sure if 'buffoonery' is included in the most recent DSM differential diagnostic algorithms.. but extreme narcissism certainly is.. and being completely oblivious and compulsive deceit and conceit may in fact be a new adjunct to Darwin's Law

    Regardless, Trump strikes me as typical of the odd syndrome.. where people say 'he went to bed & woke up dead' .. that's where I believe dear Donald is headed.. or just falling face first into his bowl of soup & drowning.. There's just not enough brain cells active enough in my view.

    Any apex predator would have the Donald cut out of his herd, flock or club lickedy split.. fat, careless, arrogant, slow.. he'd still be blabbering as the pack pulled him down and chased away any foolish defenders (as if there would be any)

    1. Trump should be very wary of the mob mentality he has unleashed, Salamander. Packs can turn on a dime against their leaders.

  3. I assume that we're still in an "early onset" stage of Trump Incivility Syndrome. I expect it to evolve some violent attributes perhaps even organized violence although I hope not. The question is how and when America emerge out of this and what will be left of that "shining city on the hill" nonsense.

    1. It will finally be seen, I think, in its full 'glory,' Mound.
