The US political, intelligence and media establishments have made even greater asses of themselves before the entire world by cooking up their latest wild concoction of a plot to topple President Donald Trump and – while they’re at it – knock his most plausible challenger former Vice President Joe Biden out of the race as well.
Washington has become a buffoonish theater of the absurd. It is politics according to Marx: But not Karl Marx. The latest scandal is pure Groucho Marx. It is straight out of the Marx Brothers 1933 comic movie masterpiece “Duck Soup.”
Freedonia is a chaotic joke of a nation that has just gone bankrupt. This of course fits modern America perfectly. The country’s financial benefactor Mrs. Teasdale (obviously a stand in for the International Monetary Fund which had not been created yet) then insists that her favorite, the wild and ludicrous Rufus T. Firefly, a con man with no dignity whatsoever but a surprising amount of wit and street smarts becomes its president.
However, Firefly – a natural stand in for President Donald Trump – must then survive one sinister scheme to topple him from power after another. All of them ineptly executed.
Russiagate was such a scheme. A big lie of such staggering inherit absurdity lacking any hard evidence whatsoever that a six year old child with Downs’ Syndrome would not have been believed it. But around half the adult population of the United States apparently did.
Now, within weeks, hardly even days after absurd and now half-senile Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller (a perfect foil for the Marx Brothers to be played by any comic actor specializing in befuddlement) bit the dust in his own ludicrous congressional testimony, a new Outrageous Accusation has been thrown at Trump, even more non-existent than the previous one.
Right after being falsely accused of conspiring with Russia for the past two and a half years, Trump is suddenly accused of the opposite – of conspiring with Ukraine instead!
This Reversal of Fortune – and of accusations – demands that the American public be as stupid and brainwashed as the oppressed population of Oceania in George Orwell’s dark and prophetic classic dystopia “1984.”
“We are at War with Eurasia! We have always been at War with Eurasia!”
“No! We LOVE Eurasia! We are at War with EASTAsia! We have always been at war with Eastasia!”
Clearly, the readers and viewers of the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN and all the rest of America’s media “Powers That Be” have already been well trained in Orwellian Doublethink and witless stupidity….
