    Porter Good confirms what we already knew: The cruelty is the point.

        Hurting people isn’t funny — unless you’re a sociopathic hatemonger like Porter Good.

        Good thinks hurting people is fùcking hilarious.

        • So if an illegal alien hurts or kills you, a family member, or a friend, you’re good with that? Or ruins their life through identity theft? Which wouldn’t have happened if they weren’t in the country. Even Obama knew to deport illegals.

          But, hey, tell us again how Dems aren’t for Open Borders.

            Nope.

            But if anyone were to hurt or kill me, one of my family members, or one of my friends… Porter Good and his devotees would be absolutely elated. They’d be laughing so hard they would pee themselves.

            The cruelty is the point.

      The cruelty is the point.

      Is it cruel in your mind to deport people who are in the country illegally? Who have broken the laws of the United States?

      Once again, we see the left in their hatred of Trump, willing to support criminals and their illegal actions.

    • formwiz says:

      No, the point is, if Lefties love the illegals so much, they won’t mind being up to their noses with them.

    The Cruelty Is the Point
    Adam Serwer
    October 3, 2018

    The Museum of African-American History and Culture is in part a catalog of cruelty. Amid all the stories of perseverance, tragedy, and unlikely triumph are the artifacts of inhumanity and barbarism: the child-size slave shackles, the bright red robes of the wizards of the Ku Klux Klan, the recordings of civil-rights protesters being brutalized by police.

    The artifacts that persist in my memory, the way a bright flash does when you close your eyes, are the photographs of lynchings. But it’s not the burned, mutilated bodies that stick with me. It’s the faces of the white men in the crowd. There’s the photo of the lynching of Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith in Indiana in 1930, in which a white man can be seen grinning at the camera as he tenderly holds the hand of his wife or girlfriend. There’s the undated photo from Duluth, Minnesota, in which grinning white men stand next to the mutilated, half-naked bodies of two men lashed to a post in the street—one of the white men is straining to get into the picture, his smile cutting from ear to ear. There’s the photo of a crowd of white men huddled behind the smoldering corpse of a man burned to death; one of them is wearing a smart suit, a fedora hat, and a bright smile.

    Their names have mostly been lost to time. But these grinning men were someone’s brother, son, husband, father. They were human beings, people who took immense pleasure in the utter cruelty of torturing others to death—and were so proud of doing so that they posed for photographs with their handiwork, jostling to ensure they caught the eye of the lens, so that the world would know they’d been there. Their cruelty made them feel good, it made them feel proud, it made them feel happy. And it made them feel closer to one another.

    The Trump era is such a whirlwind of cruelty that it can be hard to keep track. This week alone, the news broke that the Trump administration was seeking to ethnically cleanse more than 193,000 American children of immigrants whose temporary protected status had been revoked by the administration, that the Department of Homeland Security had lied about creating a database of children that would make it possible to unite them with the families the Trump administration had arbitrarily destroyed, that the White House was considering a blanket ban on visas for Chinese students, and that it would deny visas to the same-sex partners of foreign officials. At a rally in Mississippi, a crowd of Trump supporters cheered as the president mocked Christine Blasey Ford, the psychology professor who has said that Brett Kavanaugh, whom Trump has nominated to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court, attempted to rape her when she was a teenager. “Lock her up!” they shouted.

    Ford testified to the Senate, utilizing her professional expertise to describe the encounter, that one of the parts of the incident she remembered most was Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge laughing at her as Kavanaugh fumbled at her clothing. “Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter,” Ford said, referring to the part of the brain that processes emotion and memory, “the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense.” And then at Tuesday’s rally, the president made his supporters laugh at her.

    Even those who believe that Ford fabricated her account, or was mistaken in its details, can see that the president’s mocking of her testimony renders all sexual-assault survivors collateral damage. Anyone afraid of coming forward, afraid that she would not be believed, can now look to the president to see her fears realized. Once malice is embraced as a virtue, it is impossible to contain.

    The cruelty of the Trump administration’s policies, and the ritual rhetorical flaying of his targets before his supporters, are intimately connected. As Lili Loofbourow wrote of the Kavanaugh incident in Slate, adolescent male cruelty toward women is a bonding mechanism, a vehicle for intimacy through contempt. The white men in the lynching photos are smiling not merely because of what they have done, but because they have done it together.

    We can hear the spectacle of cruel laughter throughout the Trump era. There were the border-patrol agents cracking up at the crying immigrant children separated from their families, and the Trump adviser who delighted white supremacists when he mocked a child with Down syndrome who was separated from her mother. There were the police who laughed uproariously when the president encouraged them to abuse suspects, and the Fox News hosts mocking a survivor of the Pulse Nightclub massacre (and in the process inundating him with threats), the survivors of sexual assault protesting to Senator Jeff Flake, the women who said the president had sexually assaulted them, and the teen survivors of the Parkland school shooting. There was the president mocking Puerto Rican accents shortly after thousands were killed and tens of thousands displaced by Hurricane Maria, the black athletes protesting unjustified killings by the police, the women of the #MeToo movement who have come forward with stories of sexual abuse, and the disabled reporter whose crime was reporting on Trump truthfully. It is not just that the perpetrators of this cruelty enjoy it; it is that they enjoy it with one another. Their shared laughter at the suffering of others is an adhesive that binds them to one another, and to Trump.

    Taking joy in that suffering is more human than most would like to admit. Somewhere on the wide spectrum between adolescent teasing and the smiling white men in the lynching photographs are the Trump supporters whose community is built by rejoicing in the anguish of those they see as unlike them, who have found in their shared cruelty an answer to the loneliness and atomization of modern life.

    The laughter undergirds the daily spectacle of insincerity, as the president and his aides pledge fealty to bedrock democratic principles they have no intention of respecting. The president who demanded the execution of five black and Latino teenagers for a crime they didn’t commit decrying “false accusations,” when his Supreme Court nominee stands accused; his supporters who fancy themselves champions of free speech meet references to Hillary Clinton or a woman whose only crime was coming forward to offer her own story of abuse with screams of “Lock her up!” The political movement that elected a president who wanted to ban immigration by adherents of an entire religion, who encourages police to brutalize suspects, and who has destroyed thousands of immigrant families for violations of the law less serious than those of which he and his coterie stand accused, now laments the state of due process.

    This isn’t incoherent. It reflects a clear principle: Only the president and his allies, his supporters, and their anointed are entitled to the rights and protections of the law, and if necessary, immunity from it. The rest of us are entitled only to cruelty, by their whim. This is how the powerful have ever kept the powerless divided and in their place, and enriched themselves in the process.

    A blockbuster New York Times investigation on Tuesday reported that President Trump’s wealth was largely inherited through fraudulent schemes, that he became a millionaire while still a child, and that his fortune persists in spite of his fumbling entrepreneurship, not because of it. The stories are not unconnected. The president and his advisers have sought to enrich themselves at taxpayer expense; they have attempted to corrupt federal law-enforcement agencies to protect themselves and their cohorts, and they have exploited the nation’s darkest impulses in the pursuit of profit. But their ability to get away with this fraud is tied to cruelty.

    Trump’s only true skill is the con; his only fundamental belief is that the United States is the birthright of straight, white, Christian men, and his only real, authentic pleasure is in cruelty. It is that cruelty, and the delight it brings them, that binds his most ardent supporters to him, in shared scorn for those they hate and fear: immigrants, black voters, feminists, and treasonous white men who empathize with any of those who would steal their birthright. The president’s ability to execute that cruelty through word and deed makes them euphoric. It makes them feel good, it makes them feel proud, it makes them feel happy, it makes them feel united. And as long as he makes them feel that way, they will let him get away with anything, no matter what it costs them.

      There is a moral void and it exists in all sides of the political spectrum.

      It is people like you who attempt to paint with broad brushes, the same brushes that you decry when people talk about black on black crime, rights violations of the left, public colleges that seek to shut down speech, or the left when they physically attack people with whom they disagree.

      There is a moral void.

      We would suggest that you start trying to end the hypocrisy and hatred from the left and then move on.

      Until then, you don’t have the moral high ground.

      All you have is hate.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        tRump and his minions are flush with hatred and cruelty, as they strive to create their Caucasian, conservative, Christian homeland.

        America would be fortunate indeed if all tRump and his troops had was hate. But they have cruelty, ignorance, hubris, greed, envy, and a belief in their divine right, in addition to their hatred of any and all different from them.

        • gitarcarver says:

          Once again the painting with broad strokes based on your hatred of others.

          There is no point in trying to debate or discuss this with you as the hatred of those with different ideas and beliefs has blinded you to your own hatred.

          It all that the left has.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            We are as surprised as you that 30% of Americans are devoted trump followers. Who would have thought there was that much far-right hatred in America?

            Your fears fuel your hatred of liberals.

            The NuCons have hatred, greed, divine rights, envy, cruelty and ignorance. Did we mention xenophobia. That too.

            trump and those of his ilk hope to take over America.

            Did I miss the part where supporting the President is hatred? If that is the case, how much racial hatred did the left have in supporting Obama?

            Your fears fuel your hatred of liberals.

            There you go again, projecting and making assumptions about people based on your ignorance. I can guarantee that I am not afraid of any liberal. I do worry what they would do and are doing to the country, but you don’t care about that as you hate the US as well.

            All you have is hate to the point where taken to its logical conclusion, you even hate your wife. Not a great legacy or look for you, is it? Of course to be shamed or worry about that, one must have morals……

          And I here I thought you said we had it and it was being drowned in the Brown Wave.

          This is why Jeffery in all his suits is losing it. The Demos know the next couple of years are going to be very hard as the truth comes out.

          You also said all we had was hate.

          Where did all this cruelty, ignorance, hubris, greed, envy, and a belief in their divine right come from?

      • david7134 says:

        Bill,
        I believe it is the consensus among the people here that you are mentally ill.

      • formwiz says:

        What, precisely, is moral intelligence?

        Morality is rarely a thing of intellect. A great many Nazis were intelligent people, as were a few of the communists. History is awash in intelligent monsters.

        Morality comes from teaching, usually religious in nature. We are taught morality in childhood and it’s a constant.

        What’s moral for the Lefties today may have been immoral for one reason yesterday and immoral for another reason today.

        I suspect Jeffery’s high dudgeon is because Trump is playing by the Lefties’ rules and this is a winner.

    Thanks to Francis W. Porretto at Liberty’s Torch:

    You’ve got to be able to laugh at yourself. It’s a requirement for civility in any age. It’s a requirement for survival in an absurd age such as ours.

    How doth our milieu mock thee, base reality? Let me count the ways…naah, strike that. I’m not sure I have enough lifespan left. But there are certainly enough to keep the satire sites and publications fat and happy. Here’s a recent piece from the Babylon Bee:

    GLENDALE, CA—A man was rushed to the hospital yesterday after encountering a slightly different viewpoint than his own Wednesday. Shortly before 12:30 p.m., Glendale PD officers responded to a 911 call at the Java Lounge Coffee House in the 900 block of North Emerson Road. They found a person who had collapsed in shock and went to the station for help. Witnesses say the man was having a casual conversation about politics with another patron when the minutely opposing viewpoint was expressed.
    "They were both Democrats, Bernie supporters," said Janice Hughson, a barista at the Java Lounge. "Then the guy he was talking to said he had some issues with abortion and thinks there should at least be a few limitations put on the practice. That's when the man seized up and began foaming at the mouth. It was terrible."

    Four other bystanders were also emotionally injured by the moderately divergent opinion but were not hospitalized.

    The man is being kept stable on ideology support at St. Francis medical center, surrounded by friends and family who agree with him 100% on every single issue.

    The man who suggested the slightly differing opinion fled the scene. Anyone with information is asked to alert the authorities.

    And we already have. You’re losing which is why you’re so panicked.

    Nope.

    But if anyone were to hurt or kill me, one of my family members, or one of my friends… Porter Good and his devotees would be absolutely elated. They’d be laughing so hard they would pee themselves.

    The cruelty is the point.

    First, we don’t know any of your family members and we doubt you have any friends, so that leaves you. Doubtless, we’d be taken aback, but that’s about it.

    First, you wildly overestimate your impact on us.

    Second, elation and laughter is what your side does whenever one of ours is hurt. It’s why they shut down the comment boards when misfortune befalls a prominent conservative (too bad for your side, they can’t shut down Twat).

    Third, you’ve shown your indifference to accounts of illegals murdering or raping Americans, so you untruth yet again.

    Finally, I see we’ve shoved your old tag line back down your throat so much, you’re trying out a new one.

    If we were worried what Bill Moyers thought of us, it might be worth something, but, frankly, my dear, I doubt we give a damn.
