Trump Orlando Shit Storm


On it’s own the Orlando massacre is American as apple pie, a stomach clenching shit storm of guns, religion, terrorism, psychosis, and homophobia. Each one sticking to the other, there’s no way to separate out any one element from the others except for analytic purposes. Enter Trump and his surrogates, pure fascist filth pouring Islamophobia into the mix along with vile political conspiracy, and an attack against the press. He morphs the story into himself. The country is better than this.

  1. so excited to discover your blog. I am looking forward to reading your material over time. I study Talmud, and mystical Judaism (just beginning with the writings of Rambam and Scholem) and Midrash, am a lover of Rabbi Sacks and Chabad but I’m also a Christian and a Bible teacher.
    Not that it will diminish my enthusiasm for your material, but I must say that I would not have gambled that this post would come from you after reading your about page as well as your exciting readings page.
