Thought it might be, but it was too good to spoil by looking it up to check #TheresAlwaysOneWhoHasToSpoilItForEveryone.

Meanwhile, in the US, armed gunmen encouraged by the President, storm the Michigan state capitol to intimidate legislators. How is this not insurrection?

And look what happens when the President of the US encourages heavily armed gunmen to "Liberate" their state from the governor. Turns out encouraging armed militias to insurrection makes them plot acts of terrorism, including the kidnap and murder of the governor and possibly other hostages. Who could have thought it?

You can't even say it's dog whistles with trump.

Dog whistles are subtle, Trump just comes right out with it.

I have an elderly, Trump-supporting relative over there.  His Facebook feed is quite something.  Full of God-fearing calls to prayer, and guns.  Like millions of others in the US, he sees no contradiction.

A post the other day was one of the best...a list of reasons why any 'sane' voter would run a mile from the Democrats.  And top of the list?  They kill babies.  I swear I'm not making this up.  The ignorance & complete lack of sophistication is chilling.

My mum and stepdad have been in the States for a while now and sadly these are exactly the posts I see from them on the very rare times I venture onto FB. I guess the brainwashing from Fox News and weird bible bashers in Florida is difficult to escape from.

The Fox News comments section on FB is something to behold.

Well brace yourselves guys because we're on the same trajectory, just about 3 years behind them.
