Yet Another Trumpazoid Pays for Voting for Trump

02 Feb

Had a conversation with a Trump voter the other day who has suddenly recognized that by voting Republican and for Trump – he fucked himself, and his son.

He has a severely disabled son, who has Cerebral Palsy and requires constant medical care.Under Obamacare the monthly premium for his son, now 30 years old, was $54 a month. In any of the “private” plans being fronted by the Republicans…that will rise to $5400 a month, which he can’t afford.So his severely disabled so in SOL.

Next is the story of a very stupid Arab…

This Trump voter is stunned to find her Syrian relatives deported

Syrian American Sarmad Assali, a Donald Trump supporter, isn’t saying she has buyer’s remorse over who she backed for the White House.

But she’s frustrated and angry.

Like many in Allentown, Pennsylvania’s Syrian Orthodox Christian neighborhood, Assali voted for the Republican candidate last November.

This weekend, she watched two of her brothers-in-law, their wives and children get deported back to Damascus from Philadelphia International Airport even though they had US visas.

“It was a shock,” she says. “If [Trump] had an issue with them entering the United States, we should have been told about it. It should have been discussed. We should be able to get some legal help in there. … The way they were returned in a two-hour period, it was just devastating.”

Assali says her relatives are now back home in Damascus. But she speculates that if the families had not been quickly hustled back on a flight to Doha, she might have been able to find them legal assistance that would have won them entry rights.

“They weren’t even allowed to make a phone call and let us know what is going on,” she says. “They had to beg the employees to call us, to let us know that they were being returned.”

Assali’s family members were sent back after President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday night banning immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations — Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia. The ban may be lifted in 120 days or may remain fully or partially in force.

Assali was surprised her relatives’ US visas didn’t ensure their entry.

“This was our rights, our constitution lists that, so I don’t know how it can be taken away from us,” she says. “The safety of America is number one, but we should consider what we’re doing before we throw it out there at people.”

Asked if she’s still a Trump supporter, Assali doesn’t take the question head-on.

“I am a supporter of the constitution of the United States, and the freedom that we have here,” she says. “I don’t know what [Trump’s] going to do next or if I support what he’s gonna do. I can’t tell at this point.”

    I have no sympathy for her. Not one damn bit! She made her bed and unfortunately we all gotta lie down in it.

    She knew what she was voting for when she voted for Trump. Ignorance of his goals and aims is not an excuse and aint getting no pass from me.
    How she gonna act surprised that he’s doing exactly what he said he was going to do when he got in office? And how the hell does she act uncertain about what he might do next? He’s gonna do what he said he would. That’s what he’s going to do!

      I would feel sorry for the woman – if she wasn’t such a fool. Folks from that part of the world come over here and think they are white. Got real bad news for those who think that way. Arab is the new N-word.

        What’s so sad is that so many non-black poc come to this country and adopt anti-blackness in order to cozy up to white people, not understanding that white people do not consider them to be white like them, will use them to further their own racist agendas, and have no loyalty to them.

        Then when something horribly racist happens to them, they want to commiserate with black people, or have us help them with their problem.

        Although it is interesting that quite a few of them have picked up anti-blackness in their birth countries, too.

        Anti- blackness is the gift that keeps on giving us a headache.

        They learn what the deal is, particularly if they aren’t in the first wave of folks from that region to come here. The white-right really hates Muslims. Remember some of these countries supported Hitler.

        Some wealthy Arabs who traveled to Germany in the 1930s brought back fascist ideals and incorporated them into Arab Nationalism. One of the principal founders of Ba’athist thought and the Ba’ath Party, Zaki al-Arsuzi, stated that Fascism and Nazism had greatly influenced Ba’athist ideology. An associate of al-Arsuzi, Sami al-Jundi, wrote:

        “We were racists. We admired the Nazis. We were immersed in reading Nazi literature and books that were the source of the Nazi spirit. We were the first who thought of a translation of Mein Kampf. Anyone who lived in Damascus at that time was witness to the Arab inclination toward Nazism. Michel Aflaq a founder of the Ba’athist philosophy admired Hitler and the Nazis for standing up to Britain and America. This admiration would combine aspects of Nazism into Ba’athism

        Oh, the irony!
        Because the Nazis themselves studied American racist practices to form some of their ideaology, and that informed some of their behavior towards Jewish citizens.

        Actually, modern historians will sat that the roots of modern racism emerged from what became Germany in the 13th Century. At the time the what we call Germany now were just a collection of independent Feudal mini-states. Catholic Priests in one of the mini-states developed it as a unifying concept that all people of a certain background and appearance belonged.
