Flowers For Colbert for Jeb for Prayers For Peace (Part 2)

Sometimes figuring out politics is like chasing down a unicorn riding a leprechaun. Neither party truly exists and neither would ever agree to such an arrangement if they did. And this is why it is so strange to be included as part of the discussion… Even if they are only after my Lucky Charms… I don’t think Jeb has anything to be nervous about.

Jeb Bush reads George Washington’s “Earnest Prayer” with Rod Webber in Merrimack, NH

Jeb invites me up for our tradition of a Bible passage and a prayer. I paraphrased a bitfrom 1 Timothy 3:1-7. “It is noble to seek the office of overseer, however, he who does should be above reproach, sober-minded, not quarrelsome, having only one spouse and not a lover of money.” I mentioned it mostly anecdotally, as something that I thought would be fitting to ask Donald Trump about– but have been unable to.
Jeb read from George Washington’s “Earnest Prayer.”

“I now make it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection; that he would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow-citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for brethren who have served in the field; and finally that he would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.”

Trump supporter Joe Sylvester brags of threat to kill Daily Kos Writer/ Racist rant

rod webber joe sylvester As I sit in a McDonald’s for their WiFi around the corner from the convention center in Birch Run, MI where Donald Trump gave his speech last night, I listen to a table full of locals, (white men), who meet here every morning. One man stands out as he recalls the previous evening with the GOP man of the moment.

“Trump only charged twenty five bucks for the event, but Hillary charges twenty two thousand a plate.”

(Most of her events are free.)

“Were there a lot of people there Earl?”

“It was packed. I’m not going to let $130 bucks go to waste. It wasn’t so much the speech, it was seeing my old friends. They asked my opinion, and I said I have no opinion– shook their hands and said thank you very much. I always hung around with republicans. I don’t know why. But they liked me and I liked them.”

“How’d you vote?”

“I never know until I get out of the booth. Every time I vote, it’s been that way.”

Another man suddenly changes the course of the discussion. “I heard a law on the MI law books, if a woman cuts her hair or colors it without your permission, she’s outta there.”

“In the old days, you’d just backhand her.”

One of their female acquaintances walks in to say hello to them. Suddenly the tone changes.

“Good morning,” says one.

“Howdy,” says another.

Discussing the fate of a young McDonald’s employee taking orders from a Hispanic man, one says, “it’s better than being pushed around by a bunch of niggers.”

And so the conversation goes.

The event itself was standard Trump, except that he was late, giving his fans plenty of time to fill up on Bud Light 24 ounce cans which they were selling at the event.  So it shouldn’t have been any surprise that after the show, the drunken opinions of some of the attendees began to emerge.

One man in possession of several conservative opinions was a guy named Joe Sylvester. Among the choice phrases in his racist rant was, “we’re going to whack the fucking shit out of ISIS and take their fucking oil. That’s what we’re going to fucking do. Fuck those God-damn Muslim pieces of shit. Is that what you wanted to hear so you and your communists can jack off together?”

Later in the conversation, Mr. Sylvester bragged that he made headlines when he bragged to kill a writer for The Daily Kos.

Sylvester’s passenger also chimed in that hippies like me would “end up like Kent State,” under a Trump presidency.
I said, “you mean you’d shoot me?”
Sylvester responded, “if that’s how you want to interpret it,” while cackling.

Here is a video of the encounter.
