It's actually sad that it had to come to a president needing to be raided, but... that's the situation Trump created. I'm not glorying in it, because it's more tragic than anything that the country slipped so far that it let in a con-man who flouted the law. It's even more tragic that such a person still has support, just because a bunch of drooling dullards who can't -- and don't want to -- understand basic things about the world have been trained to hate a stereotype of people they don't even know so much that they're willing to accept a criminal for a leader.
When one is used to unlimited privilege, accountability feels like oppression. So the reaction from the Trump cult -- who, for some reason that makes no sense to anyone sane, have decided the world's biggest sociopath is a savior who can do no wrong -- is that blasphemy has a been done. Sacrilege. And, not unpredictably, they're calling for violence. Again.
So far they seem to be doing what they mostly do -- rage-eating Cheetos and listening to angry podcasts from the people who are raking in big televangelist dollars from stoking their fears and moron-ire. And overreacting like lunatics. Podcasters are screaming for "war." Bottom-feeding grifter Kari Lake and her I-don't-like-to-have-to-bother-with-hygiene haircut are swearing that she'll have Arizona secede from the union if she's elected governor (yeah, great, try to get elected on THAT strategy -- appeal to the absolute whack-a-loon cultists and nobody else
and see how that works out for your grimy unwiped ass, ya yappin' pekingese poltroon).
The crazier they get, the less any sane person wants to trust them to hold power. There's a difference between not liking something or not being happy about a thing that happened and retreating into a fantasy world so you don't have to accept it. And Trump cultists have become so mired down in a childish inability to face facts that they've gone total bugshit. They lost an election and decided "we can just pretend it was stolen." Based what? "Nobody in this carefully-constructed bubble I live in would've voted for Biden, I think he's dumb, so therefore it couldn't have happened! That's all the proof I need!"
Fucking whackaloons who have no idea that there's a world outside their fantasies. They don't get
that they're ingesting nothing but propaganda, so they don't even realize it is
propaganda. You can't reach 'em.
I've already seen that blockhead (literally) Dan Bongino claiming they raided Trump "because they don't like his politics." It's got nothing fucking to do with his politics.
What even are
Trump's politics? Nobody really knows, because the man doesn't have
any ideology at all, he just has a cavernous ego that requires constant feeding. If banning abortion makes people "like" him then he'll ban abortion. If kicking babies through a goalpost made people like him, he'd do that, too. He'd ban guns if that got him approval... he doesn't fucking care.
It's not about his "politics" -- it's about his criminal activity.
And, much as I hate to say it about one of Obama's picks, Merrick Garland turns out to be a timid milquetoast -- he's got a spine of linguine, so you better damn betcha that if he signed off on this then there was a strong reason to do it. They knew what they were after and they knew it needed doing.
Because it's predictable as the rain that this is going to result in violence from right-wingers. It doesn't take much... they're so eager to kill anybody who holds a different opinion from them or doesn't bow to their "god" that they can't sit still. It doesn't take much to make them violent. But it's like parenting -- you can't let the fact that a toddler's gonna throw a tantrum decide what's right and wrong to do. What Trump has done cannot be allowed to go unanswered. Otherwise this nation's laws don't mean anything. And there's little to lose trying to appease crazy right-wingers who are already
going to get violent anyway. That's what they're about at this point. It's mostly posturing from a bunch of tired old halfway-to-the-grave pieces of shit, anyway, but, yeah, some idiots will do some Timmy McVeigh shit over this, you can bet on that. They always do, whether you try to appease them or not.
So, it's sad that America elected a con-man like Trump and has to serve warrants, but big mistakes require big clean-ups, and Trump's done damage enough to this country. If a blind eye's turned and it's allowed to go unanswered, then it becomes a precedent, and it'll just happen again, and again.
And it'll likely happen again, anyway, if Republicans get power again. They've completely given up on the Constitution, the law, and reality itself.
