In many ways, Trump is turning out like I hoped he would. It’s good to have a guy who acts like a total asshole as head of state, because it’s more in keeping with the character of the state. Trump acts and sounds like a New York mafia boss, and this is certainly appropriate given the gangster character of the state as an institution.
It was predictable enough that a perceived racist and sexist would certainly draw the hatred of the Left, but the fact that he’s essentially a New York liberal at heart who doesn’t give a fuck about guns will alienate the populist right, his lack of “morals” in his personal life has got to at least make the religious right uncomfortable, his support for tariffs is likely to alienate Chamber of Commerce Republicans, his perceived pro-Russian stance is offensive to the neocons, and his authoritarianism is alienating to libertarians and libertarian-leaning conservatives as well. It’s great to have a head of state everyone can potentially hate.
Now, when are the supposed “anarchists” going to step up to the plate and start organizing real opposition to the state?
