Trump to Launch ‘Patriot Party’…Or Not.

with 4 comments

Watch President Trump's farewell speech from White House - YouTube

Ce n’est qu’un début…

Watching Trump’s Valedictory speech yesterday evening after all the bombast, greatest bombast, bombast at its most bombastic, this stuck out,

‘Our movement is only just beginning’

This seems to be an explanation.

We learn from the  Metro  something of what this may be:

 

Donald Trump is talking about starting a new ‘Patriot Party’ after he leaves the White House, according to reports. The outgoing president spoke with his top aides about creating a new political party last week before saying it’s only the ‘beginning’ of his MAGA movement in his farewell speech, sources told The Wall Street Journal. The informants also revealed the new party would be called the ‘Patriot Party’, echoing his election-winning promise to ‘Make America Great Again’. It’s not known how Trump would form a new political party in the US, which has been historically dominated by two parties – the Democrats and Republicans.

There will be no doubt discussion of what this may be, its relation to fascism, national populism, and the armed US far-right militias not to mention his legion of one-time toadies across the UK and the rest of Europe.

 

For the moment the wits of the Internet are having a field day

  1. A problem here from the Donald. To launch a new party that makes an impact needs the ackers. But I guess the big donors (cos you can’t keep up momentum on small donations from his deplorables) will keep well away from signing over cheques to him – they know that cash originally earmarked for the contest just gone has already gone AWOL into propping up Trumps other odd ilttle activities. My guess is that the likes of the Koch millions will now quietly go into funds being built up by Mike Pompeo in readiness for the 2024 contest – and not to Trump.

    • It does look a bit of a non-starter.

      Perhaps he should consider a Peace Justice and Trump Foundation.

  2. One correspondent is not impressed with many displays of forelock-tugging on Irish mainstream media outlets. Joe Biden is an Irish-American, who frequently quotes Irish poets and writers such as Séamus Heaney WB Yeats and James Joyce.
    Joe Biden is an incubator of Trumpism.
“I wonder did he read any poems written by Black men in American prisons, seeing as he was the main architect of the Comprehensive Crime Control Act of 1984 which enforced mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses. Due to that and other ‘catch-all’ crime laws, Black men (also women) make up about 15% of the population but 40% of the prisoners.”
    President Donald Trump sent QAnon-style goons on their way to Washington DC’s Capitol Hill on January 6 2021 trying and failing to overturn a convincing Joe Biden General Election victory in November 2020. Trump lost by a margin of over 8 million votes, a gap of more than 4.5 per cent, and turnout reached record levels. Many of the QAnon-style Trump-goons so far arrested and charged over the Capitol Hill assault on the US Senate and Congress are serving or retired staff in the state repressive forces – Army, Air Force, Police, National Guard and so on. What protection is the US state offering to the people attending the Joe Biden Presidential inauguration on January 20 2021? It is a version of putting the fox 🦊 in charge of the chicken 🐓 coop – 25,000 members of the National Guard occupy the city of Washington DC, whose population is overwhelmingly non-white, politically and socially hostile to Trumpism, and supportive of the magnificent Black Lives Matter Movement. No wonder the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had to desperately “vet” the repressive forces instructed to “protect” the Joe Biden inauguration. https://tomasoflatharta.wordpress.com/2021/01/20/joe-biden-president-of-usa-donald-trump-departs-extreme-right-criminals-celebrate/

  3. Just seen a transcript of a comment sent out by the sainted James Delingpole on Telegram “Feeling at the moment a bit like one of those millennial cults where the appointed hour has come and gone and the earth has not been consumed by fire while the faithful are raised to heaven in their giant spaceship. And I’m waiting for a cult leader to tell me: No, it’s OK. We got the date wrong. The Great Awakening is actually going to happen on…….…”
