LANGSTON HUGHES I TOO

Posted in AMERICAN POLITICS 2017, I TOO on 26/09/2017 by Majordomo Pain

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.”

WHERE WE HAVE BEEN AND WHERE YOU ARE GOING

Posted in AMERICAN POLITICS 2017, DONALD TRUMP with tags on 26/09/2017 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

Nearly a year has passed since the election of Donald J. Trump to the highest office in the United States of America and for the most part, this newspaper has remained silent. We have been silent on Robert Mueller’s investigation. We have been silent on the daily tragedies, all self inflicted, within the Trump administration. We were silent on Charlottesville, hurricanes Harvey and Irma and on national anthem protests.

Neither I nor any of my colleagues were silent because we didn’t care. We were silent because we thought you actually did care. Yesterday, while covering politics of our own here in Hell, I received an email from an old friend who implored me to get back on the job of reporting about all matters terrestrial in regard to American politics. The link in the article was written in the Atlantic by Ta-Nehisi Coates entitled, “The First White President.”

In his article, Coats lays out in chapter and verse the ills that have lead to the election of Donald Trump and also takes the Left to task for falling into the trap of needing the white working class for its votes. I could not agree more. The white working class has driven its flag into the soil of America and it is a Confederate battle flag on one side with a Nazi Flag on the other in great part. They have, by their silence decided to ally with forces so dark that they were enemies of the United States over seventy years ago. Vilified for their nature and actions those who were defeated in World War II stand in shame in all of history. Now, in the age of Trumpism, the ideology of hate has found a new and powerful home–the Oval Office.

Never, and I as a citizen of Hell’s largest city and seat of royal power I know the real meaning of never, have I seen anything like the events taking place in America today. And still, I recognize the Devil when I see him. I was a Jew while alive and I am a Jew in the Afterlife and nothing can change my view of this world or the world of my past. I know that Donald Trump is nothing more than an opportunist. I also know that nothing is more dangerous as a leader of the free world than an opportunist.


In Hindsight

There isn’t anything sexy I can place here in the space reserved for my snarky take on American politics because those days are over. Black America, Transgender America, Jewish America, Female America Gay America, Lesbian America, Thinking America, all of you are under attack and are engaged for a fight for your very lives. I felt this Trump presidency was a funny lark for the first three months. Then the next three months passed and I was disgusted. Now I am angry and afraid for you. America is beyond being in crisis because white America’s crisis, a major recession and a black president has passed. Trumpists now want the revenge that Coats describes in his article; they seek to not only undo the measures taken by President Obama to make the nation a better place to live and work in, he wants to erase Obama from the history and hearts of the American people by punishing those whom he helped. At the end of the day, I am back and I will be here to write about the horror that is every day of a life of an American citizen under the Trump dictatorship. I would say keep the faith, but faith won’t help at this point. Suffice it to say that I pray that as few as possible lives are lost during Trump’s reign of stupidity, evil and bigotry.
