It's Getting Real

The case against conservatism


Barry Craig Thompson

I take no responsibility at all

Welcome to first post on the "It's Getting Real" blog

Welcome to the launch of the "It's Getting Real" blog

This will be a place outside of social media where I can express my full, unvarnished views on a range of topics from Politics and Religion to Current Events and Music.  

If you are a conservative, be warned that these writings will most likely anger and offend you.  That's the point; it's not a bug, it's a feature.  You see, I'm not going to be beating around the bush or sugar coating what 's really going on out there because it's high time that people with some semblance of ethics stand up and speak out about what's going on in our country right now.

But the people who will be most "offended" over what I'll be wiring here are Evangelical Christians, who are, let's face it, the most raging, blatant, in-your-fucking-face hypocrites of the modern era.  Let's please remember that these are the same pearl-clutching assholes who flipped the fuck out when Bill Clinton was caught lying about a sexual encounter with an intern.  But they had no problem voting for a thrice married guy who bangs porn stars and pays them off with campaign money to keep them quiet.  They're apparently absolutely fine with electing a man to the highest office in the land even after he admitted on tape that he likes to grab women "right by the pussy" because "when you're a star they let you do it." 

These are the same pontificating, holier than thou, so-called men and women "of God" who have stood by and not made a peep while the bright orange mass of shit currently occupying the the office of president of the united states openly extorts foreign leaders into lying about his opponent in the coming election.  They've made not one peep about children being taken from their parents and held in cages, made to sleep on a cement floor and share a single bathroom with 300 other kids.  They don't seem to care that, to the date of this writing, only a handful of the thousands of children who have been taken have been reunited with their families and many have died in custody.  What do we hear from the Evangelical Christian community about these outrages and human rights abuses?  Fucking Crickets! Nothing. Nada. Zilch.  Men and women of God, my ass.  More like men and women of god -when it's convenient and/or financially advantageous.  

None of them seemed to care when Agent Orange said there were "very fine people" among Alt-right and white supremacists in North Carolina.  And now with almost 130,000 people dead, over 2 million people sickened with no end in sight from a virus that he claimed for 2 MONTHS was going to just "magically go away" - his son in  law and animated manakin, Jared Kushner goes on TV and says that the Trump administration's response to the pandemic is "one of the great success stories."  Meanwhile Vice President Mike Pence writes an op-ed, which is published in the Wall Street Journal (read it here on the White House web site) in which he claims "there is no second wave" and that the virus is "fading away."

Now Trump is going to hold a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where, last week they saw a 148% increase in the number of cases.

This chart was taken from the NPR Pandemic Tracker which you can visit by clicking the graphic or this link.

The BOK Center arena, where the rally is scheduled to occur tomorrow, Saturday, June 20, 2020, is an indoor, 19,000+ seat venue.  Nearly 20,000 attendees will be seated practically on top of each other.  Let's go into this with our eyes wide open.  The venue and the city are begging the Trump campaign to cancel the event.  I seriously doubt that Trump will cancel and I fully expect to see a large number of attendees wearing no masks and making no effort to socially distance.  Many of them will be Evangelical Christians.  Hypocrites, all. 

They have continued to openly court and support a racist, misogynist, homophobic, xenophobic, pathological lying moron who even John Bolton is now admitting is "completely unfit for the office"

I can go on, but you get the picture.  I've got two words for you Trump Supporters and they rhyme with "Duck Cough"
