Donald Trump gave a very nice speech from a teleprompter today in Warsaw’s Krasinski Square, a memorial to a 1944 uprising against the Nazi invasion, and the crowd went wild for him, excitedly chanting “Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!” Which was exactly what they were supposed to do: In arranging Trump’s visit, Poland’s rightwing government promised that Trump would have crowds cheering for him. To make sure of it, the government bused in people from all around the country, a technique borrowed from old-time communist days.

Repeatedly, throughout a speech in which the president recounted Polish history to the visitors, waiting people chanted “Donald Trump” and repeatedly interrupted him to do so.

Much of the crowd was brought in from across the country, and carried signs saying where they had come from – including “Pila” or “Gorzow” in the west. Other banners featured the right-wing, pro-government Gazeta Polska newspaper.

Wow, if that isn’t a spontaneous demonstration of the Polish people’s deep love of Donald Trump, we don’t know what is. The Law and Justice Party instructed all its members of parliament and other party leaders to bus in at least 50 people each so that Trump could look forward to a warm reception. No doubt he will remember it fondly, and will cite the massive cheering crowd to disprove the Fake News in a recent Pew Research Center poll showing that while 73 percent of Poles have a positive view of the USA, only 23 percent said they have confidence in Trump as its leader, compared to 58 percent for Barack Obama. That can’t possibly be an accurate Pole poll. Just listen to the cheering!

The mandatory enthusiasm certainly impressed Trump’s online fans on the Twitter box:

Skeevy wingnut Jack Posobiec, the rightwing Twitter troll who somehow got White House press credentials once, treated us to this self-pleasuring Tweetgasm:

Is “Lady Melania” a thing now? It certainly is with Posobiec, who has used it elsewhere. Good thing we had that revolution to throw off the corrupt aristocracy, huh?

Now let’s get one thing clear: While the crowd was definitely bused in, there’s no evidence they were paid to be there — maybe they got a nice lunch or something, but let’s not have that “paid crowd” nonsense. They were dragooned into this of their own free will.

By contrast, nobody needed to bus in audience members when Barack Obama went to Berlin in 2008 — and he wasn’t even President Obama yet.

As for Trump’s speech itself, it achieved one very important goal on the checklist: Trump finally said NATO is a good thing, and that the USA remains committed to the mutual defense clause, Article 5, of the NATO charter, so would you please please stop asking him about it, OK? He also said some mildly tough things about Russia, even, which he read with all the sincerity he could muster:

We urge Russia to cease its destabilizing activities in the Ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes, including Syria and Iran, and instead join the community of responsible nations in our fight against common enemies and defense of civilization itself[.]

See? He is now officially Not Putin’s Bitch Ever, no matter what insane shit he ends up saying later. It’s on the record.

Trump’s wingnut fans, like Infowars spudboy Paul Joseph Watson, liked his nod to nationalism and defending Western Culture from the Muslim hordes, although those last four words are simply implied:

Say… what’s that flag right at the front of the crowd as the video starts?

Glad to see the Polish neo-Confederates showed up, too. Warsaw will Rise Again.

    A confused Donald Trump, started his speech by stating, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” And finished by saying, “thank you Lech Walesa, who is doing such good things that more an more people are talking about him”

    This morning in Warsaw, Poland, President Donald Trump issued a battle cry — for “family, for freedom, for country, and for God” — in a speech that often resorted to rhetorical conceits typically used by the European and American alt-right. It sounded, at times, not just like the populists of the present but the populists of the past.

    Drafted by Steve Miller, the architect of the travel ban, Trump’s speech used the type of dire, last-chance wording often utilized by the far right on both sides of the Atlantic: “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.”

    “Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?” Trump asked. “Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”

    Maybe not “paid” crowds. How about “coerced” crowds? As in, “If you want to keep your jerb, your political appointment, your advancement opportunity, your son out of jail, your corporate waiver, your export license, your shenanigans unrevealed.” There’s lots of ways to get people to show up at a political rally.

    “As you know,” he said during a news conference Thursday morning in Warsaw, “Polish Americans came out in droves, they voted in the last election, and I was very happy with that result.”

    “The Poles have not only greatly enriched this region,” he said a bit later at a public
    event, “but Polish Americans have also greatly enriched the United States. And I was truly proud to have their support in the 2016 election.”

    Hey, I’m all for being proud of America and “The West”. I really am.

    I just want us to be something worth being proud of first.

    What’s worth being proud of? Progress in civil rights. Progress in caring for our most vulnerable citizens. Fairness and humanity in immigration policy. Real protection of our natural resources and of the global environment.

    When I feel confident of those things, I’ll be the most pro-‘Western’ values and “America, fuck yeah” guy you ever met.

    • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

      What, you’re not proud of fucking over the poor? You’re not proud of increasing the Dampnut family’s bank accounts? You’re not proud of that big, beautiful chocolate cake?

    • (((fka_donnie_d)))

      Look, if our cultural achievements are like this Massive Gift to Humanity, and shit, how in the world are they threatened by immigration? The only reason these people would consider immigration a threat is if they secretly think that _our culture is total garbage_ and the Masses would quickly switch to eating _those people’s_ food, reading their literature, and listening to their music given half a chance.

      • Modern white supremacists have this entire ideology that precisely BECAUSE the White race is so superior that it’s vulnerable – because our menfolk like to screw everything that moves and we’re not racist ENOUGH, sneaky Mooslims and (((bankers))) have an advantage over us. Funnily enough, that’s exactly what the Juche regime tells its people about the Korean race.

      I really feel that. I never say I am proud to be American. I’m fortunate to be American. Being proud because of the place of my birth is silly. I’m proud when our country acts in accordance with its best values. I’m not proud of our country’s record in human rights, meddling in other countrys’ elections, and belligerent warmongering. I’m proud when we do the right thing despite it being harder than the alternative.

  • Michael R

    Looks like he brought his handy checklist with him …

    You Might Be A Fascist If…

    1. You believe in rule by the few, in which a few powerful wealthy people control how the country is governed and decide what the population as a whole can or cannot do, often making rules that infringe upon the personal liberties of others just because you believe a certain way.

    2. You are obsessed with national power and pride and believe your country doesn’t have to follow the rules and shouldn’t ever apologize for doing things that are wrong. You think your nation can do whatever it wants without criticism or consequence.

    3. You consider homosexuality, birth control, contraception, prostitution, and pornography deviant sexual behavior and seek to outlaw all.

    4. You disrespect women and think their place is in the home. You believe women are weak and cannot do things that men do. You make every effort to make sure you get to control women’s bodies and make reproductive decisions for them. You believe that sexual harassment or assault is no big deal and that the only thing women are good for is cooking meals and having babies.

    5. You are obsessed with national security and war. You feed this obsession by spending trillions of dollars building up an over-sized military force and are willing to sacrifice domestic programs your people count on to keep your military huge. You start unnecessary and costly wars and you are paranoid of other nations.

    6. You are driven to indoctrinate others into your way of thinking. So much so, that you try to re-write history, change the way school children are taught and you brainwash the ignorant.

    7. You fear and demonize intelligent people who have a higher education because they are the ones who can thwart your effort to brainwash people. You then attempt to prevent others from achieving a higher education because you want the people as ignorant as possible so you can convince them that your way is the right way.

    8. You have a deep hatred and fear of communists and you instill your followers with hatred and fear of others by accusing your political opponents of being communists. Any person or policy you don’t like is branded as communism so you can convince your supporters to oppose it by playing on the fears you instilled in them.

    9. You use the media as a political propaganda machine to target a specific audience and to push your agenda on others. You make sure your media machine demonizes your opponents and takes your side on nearly every issue. Your media machine disregards facts in favor of flagrant rhetoric and misinformation. You use your propaganda machine to generate fear and hate towards others, especially those you disagree with.

    10. You strongly align yourself with corporations and you support corporate money and influence in government. You despise government regulations that keep corporations honest because you believe everything should be controlled by the free market and that corporations should be allowed to do whatever they please.

    11. You are obsessed with your perverted brand of Christianity. You seek to declare a Christian State and to impose religious laws on all the people across the country and the world. You believe other religions are inferior and that those who practice them should be converted, destroyed, or have their lives turned into a living hell.

    12. You believe your race is superior and seek to disenfranchise or humiliate other races. You believe in legalized discrimination and fantasize about a return to times when the races were separate or when those of color were enslaved. You use code words in an attempt to hide your racism and you make laws that weaken the influence of those of color. Immigration and voting laws in particular.

    13. You absolutely despise unions. To you and those like you, labor unions represent the empowerment of workers. Since you believe corporations can do whatever they want, you see organized labor as a threat because they fight for higher wages, health care, safety regulations, less hours, vacations, sick days, and holidays off. This obviously threatens the amount of money corporations can give to you and your cause so you brand unions as proponents of socialism and make laws that severely weaken them so that corporations can have a cheap, powerless labor force they can abuse.

    14. You are obsessed with crime and a major supporter of punishing those who commit crimes. So much so, that you don’t care about the concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ You are proud of executing people and aren’t bothered if an innocent person is killed. You seek to make harsher laws, especially laws that target specific groups of people such as immigrants, women, and people of color. You even defend a militarized police force that uses heavy-handed tactics. You also try to insert religion-based laws into the civil law so you can persecute people who haven’t adopted your strict moral code. You also oppose Miranda rights and using humane interrogation tactics and you seek to undermine the independent judicial system.

    15. You believe every election should go your way and to reach that goal, you push voting laws that disenfranchise those who traditionally vote for opponents such as people of color, the elderly, college students, and the poor. You even stoop to fixing elections in some cases, especially through gerrymandering to guarantee you’ll win every time. And you complain when your opponents challenge the vote counts.

    16. You believe in rewarding your friends with positions when you gain power and you reward those who support you with government contracts and money, especially corporations. You also do your best to aid your supporters in any way you can, such as repealing undesirable pieces of legislation and regulations.

    17. You create scapegoats to blame when problems arise. Whether it’s communists, liberals, minorities, homosexuals, the poor, immigrants, or non-Christians, one thing is for certain. You and your propaganda tool will blame each and every one of those groups for bad things that happen even if you were the cause of the problems in the first place.

    18. You take advantage of a national disaster such as an economic collapse or an attack to demonize your opponents and push your agenda, especially agendas that include huge military forces and less regulations for corporations. You use these events to strike fear into the population in an attempt to scare people into voting for you and your cause.

    19. You believe in survival of the fittest, an every man for himself social mentality that causes you to believe that poor people and sick people are weak and must be punished. You think rich people are strong because they are wealthy and that they should rule us, which also ties into rule by a few. You also believe your race is superior to all others and you work diligently to keep it that way.

    20. You hate liberal democracy and dream of a single party state where you have perpetual control and your opponents can no longer stand against your agenda.

    • Proud Liberal

      Trump is all of these things.

      • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

        He certainly instinctively leans towards a lot of those things, but that’s because he’s a controlling narcissist. He has no real ideology, other than his own self-aggrandizement. If he did, he’d be way more dangerous.

      • Lance Thrustwell

        Trump is most of those things. 3, 4, 6, and 11 he’s pretty weak on (which is good), and 8 is a little outdated. For 8, I would substitute “liberalism”, but it applies more to the modern GOP than to Trump himself.

    Meanwhile, back home:

    White House advisers have discussed a potential point of leverage over their adversary, a senior administration official said: a pending merger between CNN’s parent company, Time Warner, and AT&T. Mr. Trump’s Justice Department will decide whether to approve the merger, and while analysts say there is little to stop the deal from moving forward, the president’s animus toward CNN remains a wild card.

    [my emphasis]

    This detail is buried 12 paragraphs into a feature on CNN’s combative relationship with Trump. Which is bizarre, given that it’s an open confession of corruption by a senior White House official. It hardly matters whether the administration follows through on its threat: The White House is extorting a news network in the pages of the New York Times. The fact that this didn’t strike the paper as headline material is a testament to how thoroughly Trump has already succeeded in eroding our expectations for good governance. …

    The White House is openly threatening to punish a (barely) adversarial outlet through selective regulatory enforcement. White nationalist Trump supporters are threatening to kill investigative reporters and assembling outside their homes.

    Donald Trump has been president for less than six months.

    “Fuck your feelings” was a resonant refrain among many Trump supporters during the 2016 campaign. …

    But President Trump, champion of fuck your feelings, has proved to be the most delicate snowflake of all. …

    Poland is not on the way to Hamburg from the United States. It’s an overshoot. But it’s the closest place to the G-20 the president could land with the reasonable expectation that he wouldn’t be triggered by hordes of protesters the second he landed. …

    Just to be on the safe side, Polish officials bused extra Trump fans into Warsaw from across the countryside, armed with cheers and enthusiasm, and none of that scary dissent that frightens Donald so very much. …

    The rest of this week promises to be… rougher for President Trump and his eggshell emotions. …

    Trump will have to face a harsh world, one far from the safe space of his office with the enormous TV screen and the approving hedgehog face of Sean Hannity.

          • Jennifer R

            Economic concepts never met reality. MMOs are a pretty decent microcosm for economy. At a fairly reliable period of time everything suddenly becomes out of date and less useful and it’s value goes down. The older something becomes the less in demand it is because the newer things do it better for less effort and cost. Occasionally someone needs 1 of it for SOMETHING, and doesn’t want to put the time and buys one, but for the most part all those Abyss Shards sit and bloat up the servers. Sometimes someone thinks they can barron the economy of Abyss Shards, but when 2 sell per week and 200 go up per day…

    I’m sure I’m not the first one to suggest this, but, ya know, Donnie is certainly free to stay in Poland if he likes it there . . . maybe he can slap his name on one of the shittier hotels in Warsaw and, ya know, just call it home . . . just a thought . . .

    • alpacapunchbowl

      I stayed in a hotel in Warsaw that according to my then-bf who had grown up in Bulgaria was a repurposed Soviet-era housing block. Slap some fake gold shit over the shoddiness and it’d be right about the caliber of a Trump property, almost too nice to pass, really.

    “I’ve said it very simply. I think it could very well have been Russia.
    I think it could well have been other countries. I won’t be specific.
    But I think a lot of people interfere,” Trump said. “Nobody really
    knows. Nobody really knows for sure.”

    Yeah, because it’s not as if you’re the President with access to top secret intelligence briefings? Or that 17 US intelligence agencies say that they do actually know and that you are undermining them yet again.

    “Nobody really knows”? Seriously, then why not try to find out or at least demand a briefing on a subject you have been conspicuously uninterested in.

        Solid, as in solid shit. I agree about the supremacy, only surprised he used “the west” instead of just saying “all the white people” like he wanted to.

    I was curious about that “#Bluehand” and looking it up was a bit stupid. apparently it is “an anti-political correctness movement” (sure, it’ll take off someday, dipshits) named after–get this–a symbol designating where a man or boy has been sexually assaulted or raped.

    while 84% of juvenile victims and 90% of adult victims of rape and sexual assault are female, there is clearly that other 16% and 10%. about 3% of the male population–or 1 in 33 men–are the victims of an attempted or completed rape. so I can understand the blue hand thing in a “take back the night” kind of way.

    but what does that have to do with political correctness? it doesn’t.

    So, the President literally trashes our free speech, our media, and the previous, beloved President, in front of the world, and the fuckwits STILL say “Obama humiliated America”? They’re almost literally insane at this point and we have to seriously start blocking/ignoring all of them. There really aren’t as many of them as they’d like us to think. They’re just hopped up on that Fox news drug, like meth addicts.

  • whitroth

    Your take on the crowd was SOOOO wrong. This is Capitalism. They weren’t *ordered* to… they were PAID (or maybe underpaid) to cheer. Sheesh, gotta get these things right!

    On the other hand, dead serious: “Does the West have the will to survive?” Um, why am I hearing that with a German accent, and seeing Berlin in the thirties?

Why aren’t they demanding she bake cookies the way they did to Hillary when she was FLOTUS? Or criticizing her for showing skin they way they did to the far more modest Michelle?

  • I was at the beach on the fourth watching fireworks, as were a zillion other people. Toward the end of the fireworks show, some lone dingus in the crowd started shouting “Donald Trump”. The entire fucking crowd turned around and gave him this group death glare till he trailed off and wandered away. It was great. And I live in a county that went for Trump on election day, so I was pretty amazed.

    Keep bussing in cheering sections, Donnie – the longer you’re president, the smaller they’ll get.

    • bogusboggs

      Keep believing that, honey; your salty tears and whining will continue after 2018 and 2020. Obama and Hillary guaranteed THAT.

  • Buzz1313

    ABC News mentioned Trump’s warm reception in Poland, but not a word about how the crowd was bused in or the 23 percent approval rating. Yet they had no problem yammering on about ” her emails” all last summer. Liberal media, my ass!

    • kaydenpat

      The very media which Trump derides as “fake news” is always carrying water for him and normalizing his presidency. It’s amazing to watch.
