The Banality of Evil

As a novelist, when I heard about this, I wanted to put a face to it, to understand who could stand up in court and argue for children being denied basic necessities. This is a video of a woman ‘just doing her job’. A cautious bureaucrat, an illustration of the banality of evil

With all due respect, our nation started out by enagaging in genocide and slavery. We had no compassion or common decency to people of color. But what we did do was move toward adopting high ideals and now we’re regressing back to what we used to be.

Twitter points out that this is the same lawyer, Sarah Fabian, who delayed reunification of over a hundred under 5’s with their families because she had to dog sit.

Trump Hears Signals

Joe Bidan could have never made a deal this good

— Todd ShamTodd (@ToddShamTodd) May 26, 2019


It is not this typo which tells us something about the IQ and the evilness of the present president of the USA. And the support which Trump gets tells us something about the character and the evilness of a large part of the citizens of the USA.

North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Bidan a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

It looks like this tweet was replaced by the next tweet from @realDonaldTrump.

Ain't it a hoot when a murderous psychopath takes your side and joins you in fifth-grader level insults of people who've given far more of themselves to this country than you ever have or ever will?

Trump deleted his mind-bogglingly awful tweet supporting Kim Jong Un, but the internet always remembers.

RIP: Joe Bidan. We hardly knew ya.

It’s incredibly chilling for the President of the United States to excuse the belligerent actions of a North Korean dictator who murdered American citizens while applauding attacks on Democratic opponents like “Joe Bidan” just before playing golf in Japan on Memorial Day weekend.

Presidential Violence Threat

Trump to Breitbart on how the left plays tough: "I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad, very bad."

— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 14, 2019

For those asking for more context: Breitbart says the quote came as Trump was arguing that the left plays politics in a more "vicious" manner than his side, even though "the tough people" are on his side. Here's the link.
