 This is a matter of framing. I think they said a lot of good things, most of which will just blow over the ever zero attention span afflicted heads of the media and the nation. All that will last is Trump’s inane responses. Sometimes more impact is called for: we need more of a Ted Kennedy, in your face, “When does the greed stop?” moment. This goes to what they call themselves too. I also propose a new name: “Real American Patriots Squad,” just to piss off magas and their extremely fallible deity.

 ”We have been here before.”
 ”Do we really need to answer an accusation worse than, ‘Are you or have you ever been a Communist?’ This from someone who knows nothing about showing the dignity of his office, or cares anything about that dignity. This from someone who constantly accuses others of perpetuating a ‘witch hunt.’ Apparently, while accusing others of a with hunt, he no problems declaring others all kinds of names; essentially witches. And he has no problem with inspiring acts of violence. He even declares he will pay for their defense.”
 ”We have been here before.”
 ”The Jews were told to go back where they came from. The Klan and other racists demanded the n-words go back where they came from. Leaders have demanded their opponents be ‘locked up’ without even a hint of a suggestion there should be a trial first. This is what dictators and tyrants do. It is NOT ‘American.’ If anyone hates America it is he who demands those who dare to disagree with him to leave. This is not a dictatorship, though despite he who does not know how to behave like a president has great love for some our the most brutal dictators and oligarchs. He who would love to be both.
 ”We have been here before.”
 ”It certainly is well known he who declares those who dare to disagree ‘hate their country’ because they point out failings did little but that when he ran. His idea of love of country is limited to cheap photo ops, like hugging a flag. He knows nothing of true statements of patriotism like, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
 ”We have been here before.”
 ”These kinds of accusations and inspiring hatred led to driving a car through protesters by one of his ‘good people.’ It was the kind of rhetoric that led to mistreatment of soldiers who served. It led to one president putting a person in a pub in jail for his whole administration because the quaff-er simply called him, ‘Toothless and quarrelsome.’ It almost led to a coup until Smedley Butler revealed the traitors.”
 ”We have been here before and we reject this path. But the tyrant wannabe tries to bring it back with vague, proof-less, comments like, “A lot of people say,” or “Some people say,” or “A lot of people agree with me.”
 ”Yes, we have been here before and we will survive. Those who truly love this country reject his style of, the hate he promotes, the siding with White Nationalists, racists, Neo Nazis, or in his words: ‘fine people.'”
 ”You want to see the true traitor who hates the country and what our very documents say it stands for, Mr. Trump? LOOK IN THE MIRROR.

Inspection is dedicated to looking at odd angles, under all the rocks, and into the unseen cracks and crevasses, that constitute the issues and philosophical constructs of our day: places few think, or even dare, to venture.
