The New Roseanne: Remember When Saying ‘Martin Luther Coon’ Was Funny?

The Washington Post on April 4 published an article by Gary Abernathy, “I don’t care if ‘Roseanne’ is pro-Trump. I just hope it’s pro-civility.” In addition to being a Post columnist, Abernathy is publisher and editor of the Hillsboro (Ohio) Times-Gazette. He is a leading apologist for Donald Trump’s corrupt and immoral regime that has abandoned any semblance of regard for God’s Commandments or Jesus’ Golden Rule. Here is my comment:
What a crock of horse manure. I long ago anointed Gary Abernathy as America’s chief yahoo, and this column proves my choice beyond the shadow of a doubt. Yes, I’m a Democrat, but my horror at what Trump is doing to this country long ago ceased to have anything to do with partisan politics.
I am appalled at the level of pure racism, sexism, ignorance, anti-intellectualism, and xenophobia Trump has unleashed, his toxic vulgarity and crudeness that wage a war against our basic democratic and moral values and against common human decency.
Most of all, I am outraged at how Trump and his Republican lackeys, like Abernathy, have abandoned God’s 10 Commandments and Jesus’ Golden Rule to make a bullying coward President. Every day, Trump literally spits on God’s Commandments against lying and against committing adultery. And name me a single Trump tweet or public utterance that reflects “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
What a gross act of deliberate hypocrisy and dishonesty Abernathy commits by asserting that Roseanne’s show is a case of pitting liberal vs. conservative values. Unless, of course, Abernathy is admitting that conservatives value:
  • Packing innocent DACA  children into boxcars and shipping them back across the border into countries they have never known
  • Telling the flagrant lie that Obama was not a native-born American
  • Demeaning the military service of John McCain
  • Bragging about sexually assaulting women and calling them bimbos
  • Pardoning the thug Joe Arpaio and supporting a child sex pervert to be a U.S. Senator
  • Using ethnic slurs against Americans as well as foreigners
  • Calling his own daughter a “piece of ass”
  • Inciting his followers to violence.
Go right ahead, Mr. Abernathy. Keep telling us that all the above, and much more, is knee-slappingly funny to you conservatives. Reminds me of the day you could say “Martin Luther coon” and get a good laugh.

Christians Choose Trump over 10 Commandments, Golden Rule

America’s religious leaders and their ignorant yahoo followers who are apologists for Trump can dodge and weave all they want, the truth become more apparent every day: they have abandoned God’s Commandments about lies and adultery in order to accommodate Donald Trump’s lies and adultery. Leaders of our mainstream Christian Denominations are proving they are hypocrites and cafeteria Christians.

If our pastors, reverends, priests, and bishops want to have any credibility, they must address Trump’s treatment of the 10 Commandments and the Golden Rule with the same words and fervor with which they speak of abortion and homosexuality. Mike Pence, Orrin Hatch, and Mitt Romney should join in.
