I am not surprised. Allegations against Donald Trump's father include participation in the second iteration of the KKK in a New York City parade in 1927.

[ “I’ve seen this kind of violence,” said Gail Helt, a former CIA analyst responsible for tracking developments in China and Southeast Asia. “This is what autocrats do. This is what happens in countries before a collapse. It really does unnerve me.”]

Maybe it's not just me.

Sorry. I subscribed years ago when Chito Mussolini threatened to stop them from printing the truth about him.

Another excerpt-
[Marc Polymeropoulos, who formerly ran CIA operations in Europe and Asia, was among several former agency officials who recoiled at images of Trump hoisting a Bible in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington after authorities fired rubber bullets and tear gas to clear the president’s path of protesters.

“It reminded me of what I reported on for years in the third world,” Polymeropoulos said on Twitter. Referring to the despotic leaders of Iraq, Syria and Libya, he said: “Saddam. Bashar. Qaddafi. They all did this.”

The impression Trump created was only reinforced by others in the administration. Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper urged governors to “dominate the battlespace” surrounding protesters, as if describing U.S. cities as a foreign war zone. Later, as military helicopters hovered menacingly over protesters, Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, toured the streets of the nation’s capital in his battle fatigue uniform.]

I suppose he had to cultivate an image last week when ordering the way cleared of protestors to have a picture of him in front of a church.

They did contribute to the lower turn out, but you know that people will go just to be close to stuff like that, try to get a ticket, hang in the overflow if not...but they did not show...  THAT was telling...

Idiots...  The wearing of Masks, for prevention of the spread of this Pandemic, has become a political issue! 

Yes, the Morons will inherit the earth (not the Meek), that is, if they don't die off first from disease (and kill everyone else in the process as well)...
