'The Third of May 1808' by Francisco de Goya
‘Meme Warfare’ by Francisco de Goya

Late in July, director of the National Security Council H.R. McMaster ejected Rich Higgins from his NSC job for writing and circulating a memo that the The Atlantic described as “controversial.”

Well, Foreign Policy got the full text of the document, and, honestly, it’s hard to imagine a more deranged, unhinged memo has ever crossed the desk of a US president. To even call it deranged and unhinged feels grossly inadequate. This is a memo that never had hinges and cannot be ranged. I am not even sure it exists or can exist in our universe, or if it actually is, itself, our universe and we are its physical boundaries. This fucking memo is NUTS.

Its chief object is to argue for the desirability of beginning a civil war within the United States. Obviously it doesn’t say: “Trump should do a civil war, that would be good.” But, it also totally does!

It declares “cultural Marxists” (which is longhand for “the left” and really means “everyone we hate”) to be “engaged in a political warfare effort that seeks the destruction of a sitting president,” which, okay, fair! But, it continues:

“In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power. Functioning as a hostile, competing state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure.”

Not too sure why this little primer on Maoist revolutions would be relevant when discussing how the left makes memes, which, oh yes! See, before it even gets into the Maoist insurgent state stuff, it highlights the threat Trump poses… to our MEMES:

“Recognizing in candidate Trump an existential threat to the cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative, those that benefit recognize the threat he poses and seek his destruction.”

First of all, that’s a really sloppy sentence. It’s also insane! And there is so, so much more, like a bulleted list of “those that benefit” from the… cultural Marxist memes? described above, including the Deep State, Democratic Leadership, Republican Leadership… Islamists… The Academy… all of these are doing Maoist Marxist meme insurgencies, and the transgender acceptance, and the political correctness, the population control, infiltration, battlespace, the post-modern notions of tolerance, the natural law, yes, all these words are in this memo and, as I have said, much more is there as well, may we all rest in peace.

Don’t let the pure fucking insanity of every single word of this astonishing artifact obscure the fact that its aim is to make a case for war against Trump’s domestic political opponents. All of this is a “national security issue,” it says. “You know how we deal with national security issues,” it winks four hundred times and jabs you in the ribs with a club.

“Political warfare is warfare,” it says. The war against Trump, where we say mean things about him on screens, is an actual war — a national security issue! It concludes that “the defense of President Trump is the defense of America.”

Still not convinced? Islamists. Got your attention? Thought so:

“It is through such post-modern constructs that interoperable narratives are established among various left-wing groups as well as between them and Islamist groups at all levels.”

So if you don’t think it’s good to hate fear Muslims, and you say so on Twitter, you are actual Hamas and a Maoist insurgent, and your post-modern contructs are the enemy within.

How much clearer could Higgins be? Sure, he doesn’t actually say anyone should be lined up against a wall and shot. He calls for a campaign of “PUBLICITY […] PROPAGANDA and INFILTRATION/SUBVERSION,” but we should not let him get away with doing that thing common on the addled right where they go “This is an actual war against the Republic and the left must be crushed utterly, lest they hack us to pieces in our beds and adorn themselves with our entrails… So let’s do memes against them!” No, asshole, own it. You want a fucking war.

Okay. It’s very, very worrying that this guy was working at NSC until late July, but it’s one guy. Surely he was the only

“The memo maybe reads a little crazy, sure, but it’s not wrong and Rich isn’t crazy,” an administration official said.

[…]

“It’s not wrong per se,” said another official. “Actually, it’s not wrong at all. The not-wrong part is just, well, buried a bit I guess by some of the wackier parts.”

O…………… kay. It appears that the universe cracked at some point and another reality leaked in that is somewhat like ours except nobody makes any fucking sense. They all seem to understand each other perfectly, though, which might be the scariest thing of all.

Needless to say, Trump reportedly loves this memo, per Kevin Drum:

“Apparently the memo was circulated widely, and eventually Don Jr. got hold of it. He passed it along to dad, who loved it. When he found out that the author had been fired, Trump was furious. And according to an inside source, ‘He is still furious.'”

A third of the country either doesn’t know about this, supports it. Oh well, it’s fucked o’clock somewhere…

    Cultural Marxists… A philosophical nonsense term, other than to use a Bad Scary word like Marxist to slur political opponents… And this guy was only fired from his job, rather than arrested for incitement… And how long was this memo circulating!?

    I’ve said it before, but Coast Secession is the only way to go. These fucker are otherwise gonna find a reason to start shooting…

    MAGA…

    That MAGA part of the country can have this shithole remnant of a once noble social experiment. The monster has taken over, and it;’s time for the villagers to flee…

    • (((fka_donnie_d)))

      No, fuck that, they can bitch about secession all they want. We outnumber them, they don’t like it they can fucking leave.

      • Beanz&Berryz

        Who would want to share a country with those fucks? And just how to re-democratize the 20-somethings states that embrace anti-democratic games to maintain their one-party states? This is what 20-something states want…

        • (((fka_donnie_d)))

          I don’t care how passive agressive it sounds, they don’t like sharing a country with us, they can leave.

          I’m a first-gen Russian immigrant. I left once already. Fuck that.

          • Beanz&Berryz

            Interesting concept.. Except, they game the political system to take complete power… why should they leave? They have everything, and they are embedding processes to preserve their political dominion. WE can wish really hard, and voice our concerns, and they will ratfuck us twice a day and send us back to the 19th century. We don’t have the mean cheating vicious hateful dispositions that they do. Or maybe we just don’t have God on our side. Either way, fuck supporting them, subsidizing them, being pulled by them back into a cultural fantasy-land based on hating everyone who’s not them. They aren’t going anywhere.

            Oh, and, it is good that you could come here, but, would staying have changed things there?

          • (((fka_donnie_d)))

            Yea, when you take it upon yourself to question my parents’ decision to leave and save me from (among other things) military conscription, I take it upon myself to tell you to have a cool refreshing glass of Sit Down and Shut The Fuck Up.

            Have a nice life, asshole.

          • Beanz&Berryz

            Ahh, And I tried to ask without any teensy bit of presumption or judgment about the reason to come here, because I have none. I was asking to get clarity of whether your family’s staying would have changed that system. It sounds perfectly rational to have left, and it’s good that it worked. As it did for the Baltic states also too. Sounds like you parents’ made a good decision. The implication in my question, of course, is that your family staying would not at all have changed the system… but I’m as asshole to point that out. I’ll sleep OK with that in mind…

            But relating it back to the topic at hand, once fascists (in this case, here, in this country) have taken control, why is it wrong for non-fascist regions to leave the union? I may be an asshole, though I think not for the erroneous reason you jumped to, but what is your insight into how to respond to an anti-democratic, corrupt, and/or evil system? Convince the people who finally have the power to implement the anti-democratic, corrupt, and/or evil policies they want that they’re wrong, and should instead vote for policies that support democracy, diversity, and openness? Or is there a different way that we stay in a union that is increasingly tilted toward taking political power from us…

          • (((fka_donnie_d)))

            I’m not going to engage with your secession bullshit, because it is secessionist and therefore, by definition, bullshit. In case you slept through history class, we kinda had a little bit of a kerfuffle about that already. And that was when the secessionists were in the minority. You’re suggesting the majority go through the trouble of founding a new state, because that would be easier than fixing the old one? Or something?

            I’m going to take this exactly one step further than strictly necessary because one fine day you might meet an immigrant from a totalitarian regime IRL, and if you spout your Rational Hamster Bullshit at them you’ll probably get clocked in the face. Just Asking Questions about how my parents should have put on their fucking Batman cape and risked their lives (and mine) to overthrow an entrenched totalitarian dictatorship is _by definition_ judgmental. The fact that you don’t see it that way makes you a moral retard. Enjoy the rest of your day. Should you choose to respond to this, I will regretfully block you.

          • ahughes798

            I believe Beanz said the exact opposite…that HAD your parents put on their batman capes, it wouldn’t have done anything to change the situation, and would have gotten you all killed. Anyway, I’m glad you all made it here, and I hope you are enjoying your lives. I guess we should all enjoy our freedom while it lasts.

    Manafort’s lawyers were not fired by Manafort…they left him.

    Usually this happens when you do not pay your lawyers but Manafort was able to suit up with some new lawyers, so cash flow problem is likely not his issue.

    His previous lawyers may have left due to the fact Manafort LIED to them, This scenario seems very likely given the FBI middle-of-the-night raid on Manafort’s records.

    This does not bode well for soon to be ex-President Trump.

      “I confess without shame that I am tired & sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. Even success, the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies […] It is only those who have not heard a shot, nor heard the shrills & groans of the wounded & lacerated (friend or foe) that cry aloud for more blood & more vengeance, more desolation & so help me God as a man & soldier I will not strike a foe who stands unarmed & submissive before me but will say ‘Go sin no more.’”

      Interesting …

      I was making a cake this morning and needed three eggs. When I last went to buy them, we had two eggs left, and I bought a dozen and a half more. When I went to get my three eggs, the two we had before were still there, but the 18 had dwindled to six.

      I spent the next 15 minutes shouting to no one in particular about it.

      I mean, HOW HARD IS IT TO USE THE TWO OLDER EGGS BEFORE STARTING INTO THE NEXT CARTON?

      Oh, I’m shouting again. Sorry about this. (I just get so pissed off about nothing.)

          The last time I put on my hip waders and nose clip to venture through the anti-semitic swamplands of the internet I gathered that they think “The Jews” promote inclusiveness and diversity everywhere but in Israel in order to weaken the West for the ultimate triumph of “The Chosen” over the Goyim.

      Because people on the left believe the freedom of religion enshrined in the constitution extends to Muslims, therefore we are basically Islamic extremists?

      • Weird Fishes

        Yup. You got it, you godless Commie

      • Three Finger Salute

        It’s actually because they believe leftists only allow Muslims to gay-bash and rape women with impunity as a form of “leveling the playing field,” because Muslims tend to be brown and poor and victims of white Western imperialism. There is, unfortunately, some of that among the naive campus marchers (and I do take issue with the response of some to the Charlie Hebdo and South Park plots), but I would think that among core progressives, the rights of women, gays, and artists pursuing freedom of expression would take precedence over everyone’s imaginary fairy tales. The right is only mad that they’re not the only game in town.

    • jesterpunk

      The funny thing is if you look at what Islamic extremists want and look at what the Christian right in the US want there isnt really much of a difference. The main difference is which name for God they use.

      Actually, it’s still “Papists!” except now they think Pope Francis is a commie who’s also been co-opted by Soros and the “Judeo-Bolshevists.” There’s a far-ranging conspiracy about Jesuits that they’re crypto-Jews operating under the auspices of the Catholic Church for a massive transfer of wealth from Western civilization into their own coffers. During G7, Reddit/Voat/4chan asploded with memes about Trudeau being Francis’ “errand boy,” sold to the “Jewish Vatican” by Pierre (who is still not his real dad in conspiranut parlance). We know what that means. Methinks they project more than an IMAX movie theater.

    Now my head really hurts from trying to read that memo. And no way Trump actually read it all the way through. Too many big words.

As I recall, it was exposure to him in an intro to philosophy class in college that may have led to my radicalization.

    I’m reminded of something from The Name of the Rose. The gist was that the student was asking about the differences between the different heresies, and the teacher said the differences don’t actually matter and that some of them aren’t even really heretical. The church just lumps all its enemies together as “heretics.”

    I’m tempted to reread the book just to find that passage because I haven’t summarized it very well and it was really beautifully written.

  • Yes. Some of them want to kill us. They repeatedly ‘joke’ and say we’re not ‘real’ America. They repeatedly say we wish to destroy America. They repeatedly say we don’t respect or believe in the Constitution. They repeatedly accuse us of all manner of evils from “baby murder” to ‘making the kids gay” and a host of other bullshit.

    They imagine some glorious battle to ‘save’ their America. A new war that will let them win honor and give meaning to their empty, pathetic lives. Perhaps make them feel like real men.

    They should go talk to people in Bosnia and Serbia and North Ireland and Syria to see what a civil war really looks like. To see how inglorious it is. To see the children and the widows and those crippled by IUDs or machetes. To hear the stories of neighbor against neighbor and the butchery that war entails. To see their friends blown in half. To see their comrade hit in the head with a bullet or torn apart by shrapnel. To see a man sink in the mire and drown in muck.

    And they should talk to the vets and people who have seen that shit. About the nightmares. About the guilt. About walking down a street and suddenly being overwhelmingly convinced you’re back there and people are trying to kill you. About being unable to relate to others who haven’t gone through the meat grinder. About depression, drinking, emotional issues, self-medication, broken relationships…

    These fuckheads think war is a video game or a movie. I pray to any deity that will listen that they never experience the truth here.

    • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

      We had our very own civil war like that-.its a distant memory, and in the history books, and all that, but there were 700,000 casualties, half of the country as it existed then with its infrastructure destroyed, many of its cities ruined, and entire generation of young men decimated. That would be child’s play compared to the kind of horror a second Civil War could unleash today.

        • Vagenda and Pee-ara

          It blows my mind that half of the country was stupid enough to vote for a well known crook and liar, with or without Russian meddling.

          • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

            Well, it wasn’t really half, it was 1/4, and although quite a few of them are awful horrible people, I truly believe that most of them were simply completely uninformed.

            If you live in a small rural town in Alabama, and you don’t get a newspaper, or have a bookstore, and your education is deeply inadequate, and all you see on TV is Fox News, you get a steady diet of absolute lies and propaganda, presented really compellingly, over and over, by what seems like “totally different” shows, and if you’re not that bright, and haven’t ever really left your backwoods patch, and your fucking CHURCH tells you the same thing, you literally can’t imagine, or have the cognition to figure out, that none of this is true.

            If that’s what you’re fed, constantly, and you’re stupid and uneducated and have no experience of the real world, and are frightened like a medieval peasant, you would believe it. And if you believe it, if you think it’s reality, then their votes make perfect sense.

            They have no experience with actual businessmen, or the rich, or even the tiniest fragment of an idea about how truly venal and destructive someone can be. They THINK Donald actually IS successful. He’s real well-dressed, has fancy houses, a PLANE, and is on the TEEvee, so of course he’s rich and powerful, and he’s coming to see THEM! And he TALKS like them, he makes them feel SMART!

            Meanwhile, if you live in a universe where women aren’t that smart and in fact many are pretty trashy, then ain’t no way you want one of THEM in charge. Especially if you truly believe that the one who wants to be in charge is a liar and a murderer and has no skills and is evil. They’re just really stupid and voting out of stupidity.

            Those are the ones who are outright bewildered that Mr. Trump is tweeting that stuff all the time, who write to him, Mr. Trump, don’t be tweeting all the time, do the other stuff you said you’d do. They just can’t fathom someone is actually that much of a liar and a conman and a total fake. I truly believe those are the ones who are seeing the light now, who are dropping their support, who no longer “believe” in him.

            I also think the idea that he has a huge base of supporters is completely false, propped up by paid extras at his rallies, and certainly by an army of fake bots and trolls. Even the worst and most selfish people will actually talk about having a health system “where we all pay in and then people get it when they need it” even if it’s only FOR THEIR TOWN. They simply can’t understand that that IS universal health care, only on a larger scale.

            They’ve also been endlessly told that “government” is bad, with literally no one explaining to them what government actually does. They seriously don’t know. But I agree, THAT blows my mind too….. /end rant /apologies for the rant

    The life of an elite Jew is to control the non-Jew through both cultural and political means. The non-Jew responds and then the Jew adapts to that response. The lives of Jews and non-Jews are therefore inexorably tied together. Understand that any attempt to control something external to you means that you are also being controlled by it, since your existence becomes primarily a response to the external.

      • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

        Which they won’t, because the cities have the banking, the trade, the tech, and the tax base. Lately, the Texas legislature has been going to war with its own cities. It’ll be interesting to see the ultimate outcome.

        • georgiaburning

          You’re assuming that they won’t vote against their own self-interest. The Democratic Party has been losing that bet quite often.

          • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

            Reason and logic. They’re terrible mental handicaps when you assume others have them.

          • Three Finger Salute

            The Bernbrats have held the sensible center hostage. Fuck that guy and the monster he created. There’s even actual commies in France who are already looking to “burn it all down” and threatening to vote Le Pen in 2022 if Macron doesn’t agree to their hostage demands. Just what Putin wants.

      • Beanz&Berryz

        I just wonder… I’m not so great on my history, but at least in the past 20-30 years, as there been a regional dissociation in which, if the leaving party departed without shooting, the rump dumpee started shooting? There was no shooting in the break-up of the Soviet Union or Czechoslovakia. Yugoslavia blew to hell, but I’m not sure who started the shooting, and a couple hundred years of racial tension didn’t help them.

        So… In modern times, and maybe aside from Yugoslavia, is there an example of a peaceful secession being met by a civil war response?

        And in our history… Is it so clear that there would have been actual war if South Carolina hadn’t started shooting?

        • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

          Could Lincoln have diffused the situation? I doubt it. The war wasn’t just over slavery- it was over the expansion of slavery. Slave owners didn’t want to be contained, but wanted to expand for fear they would lose political and economic viability. There were enough people in the rest of the country, while if they didn’t want to see slavery abolished outright, did not want to see it expand westward.
          That’s the dimestore version, and I welcome correction by wonkstorians.

          • tomamitai

            Lincoln offered his support for the Corwin amendment in his first inaugural address and that didn’t stop the traitors from splitting.

          • Beanz&Berryz

            I agree with that summary… The slave states saw the congressional writing on the wall so that slavery needed to be allowed in expansion regions to remain viable in Congress. But why start shooting? Why fire on Fort Sumpter? Lincoln had no political support to start a shooting war with the south, and no authority to do it either. But as the great historian Tora Tora Tora pointed out, attacking the US is akin to waking a sleeping giant… And that’s just what the dipshits in South Carolina did. And the South Pacific also too.

          • georgiaburning

            You’re onto it. The development of the powered mechanical cotton gin in the 1820’s-1830’s was technology that made it very profitable to expand plantation agriculture. The Compromise of 1820 made that very difficult. Land taken in the Mexican-American war that was open to slavery under that agreement was mostly unsuited to cotton.

        • tomamitai

          There’s no clear cut geographic line of demarcation between the “reds” and the “blues” in the U.S.. Look beyond red and blue states and what you see are blue cities in red countrysides. If not for Gerrymandering and two senators for every state, this country would have a fairly solid center-left majority in government at the federal level, and Dems would be far more competitive at the state and local levels. How are you going to have secession, peaceful or otherwise, with that? Plus, fuck that shit, it’s One Nation Indivisible!

          • Beanz&Berryz

            Ahh.. well.. let’s enjoy our fascist task masters… USA Uber Alles…

    • WotsAllThisThen

      That last one is really confusing, given what happened at G20.

      • Three Finger Salute

        They refer to the EU as EUSSR, and ascribe nefarious motives to Merkel because she grew up in East Germany and is supposedly a (((parenthetical cosmopolitan))) darling of the old regime. The Obama and Hillary ones are obvious (demographic minority liberals in power = a threat to the Aryan masculine master race = cultural Marxists). Pierre, meanwhile, was always suspected of being a Soviet plant, and then the idiotic, uncreative birtherism about Justin that was Castrogate dialed the paranoid lunacy up to 9000.

        But you know they’re actually in the middle, because the purity ponies who do want their Bernbot revolution say they’re not sufficiently leftist enough. They did it to Hillary, they’ve done it to Obama, they’re doing it to Justin and they’re even doing it to Merkel too. It’s horseshoe theory but it’s not a game of lucky horseshoes when the extremes drown out the sensible, compromise-friendly center.

        I hate to admit that I’ve been exposed to enough of the crazy that when I saw a woman at my local Walmart wearing a full burka I got the creepy crawlies, until I heard her talking on her phone in a dialect that would have fit right in at one of my family reunions, i.e. “poor white trash”, and realized she probably married a Muslim and converted to piss off her parents.

        • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

          Even if she was speaking Arabic, there’s literally zero actual reason for you to have any kind of “creepy crawlies.” She’s a woman of faith, wearing the garb of her faith. Do you get creepy crawlies when you see a Catholic priest or a cardinal in their full drag?

          • Kooolest G

            actually I kind of do get the creepy crawlies when I see a catholic priest, come to think of it much more than if I see a woman in her burqa. but to be fair, I have a 7 year old son, who is much more likely to be a “victim” of a catholic priest than a woman in a burqa

          • tomamitai

            Hey, I said I “hated to admit it”, doesn’t that get me any points? I’m too old to have to worry about priests or cardinals, as long as I avoid going to a Catholic hospital where their dogma can override the best interests of the patients.

The Ersatz President and maybe his entire mangy, idiot retinue — whom we are paying, FFS — actually want to kill everyone who isn’t them. Including me. And you. And our friends and families. I have serious doubts that I will ever be able to snark about these Nazis again. It will all be the same words, but without a scintilla of humor.

  • KnaveOfSwords

    Also worth noting (as in “under other circumstances, we’d be screaming about how wrong this is, but it’s easy to miss it amidst everything else that’s wrong with this”) is that this was a National Security Council memo. That only found its way to Drumph because his son, who’s a private citizen with no security clearance, forwarded it to him.

    • Notreelyhelping

      And there’s a problem?

    • Alex Ruthrauff

      To be clear, this is not an official NSC memo. It was written by someone working at NSC at the time they wrote it, and it was circulated among acive NSC staff, and the fucking president “read” the damn thing anyway, so I didn’t feel the pressing need to make that distinction in the post. Call it my liberal media prerogative.

      • BrendaKay

        Ah – thanks for clarification! I was wondering how Don Jr. read it first too. ;-)

    So, where did he pick up the BS about Mexico taking over unless he’s reading rightwing disinformation online?

            I don’t know what it is about the PhD process, but some people from every field it seems, really come out of it hung up on the “doctor” thing. Even people whose personality wouldn’t lead you to believe they would care about something like that.

          • ahughes798

            I know, right? My meteorology teacher had a PhD. in meteorology, was a meteorologist for the Navy for 20 years, and for O’Hare airport for 20, and he said first day of class to call him Mr. Priest. One day he pulled me aside and said “You can call me Eric, just try not to do it in front of the kids.” So I’d stay behind after class and we’d shoot the shit, mostly about the weather. He was and is a great teacher. I’m going to audit his met. class in the spring, because I need a refresher course.

      I can grow food, bake bread, make cheese, have some chickens. And a shotgun and a .38. I don’t have the money to “prep.” Or to move to a remote area and “prep.” All I have are my hard-wired hillbilly survival skills, knowledge of edible and medicinal plants, good general knowledge of biology, and botany, good aim, and water de-contamination devices. I know how to make a hoop house. I live 40 miles from the best soil on the planet earth, down by Kankakee. I could do okay w/o buying those “buckets o’ food.”

      • handyhippie65

        i have canned food, not freeze dried. it doesn’t take a lot of money to be prepared. buy a couple extra cans every week, date them, and put them away in a cool dry place. get a generator, and a wood burning stove. get some old medical textbooks. learn to fix things. learn to hunt and fish, and how to clean and butcher what you catch. dig a root cellar to store extra crops. i also have a garden, and chickens. i live on what is left of the farm that was homesteaded by my great grandfather, two miles from US 33. i’m 26 miles from ft. wayne. the second largest city in indiana. it sounds to me like you are already a prepper. when i was a kid, it was just called being smart. we canned our own food that we grew, and butchered a pig and a steer that we raised. i didn’t eat meat from a store other than school lunches till my parents divorced. as the song says,”a country boy can survive.” some people like to make everything difficult, when it is really very simple.

I know how to fish, I think I remember how to clean them. I don’t know how to hunt, but I’d learn to do so, much as it would break my heart.

          • handyhippie65

            i think everyone should have to hunt for, kill, and butcher their own meat at least once in their life, if for no other reason than to have a better respect for the animals we eat. remember, every living thing on this planet, with the exception of certain bacteria that live on chemical energy, consumes other life forms to live, even plants. my mom never used a pressure cooker for canning. you just need a canning pot, and to boil the jars in normal atmosphere, a pressure cooker just makes it quicker.

          • ahughes798

            I watched my dad clean a lot of fish, so I could probably do that. I just don’t know if I could pull the trigger on a squirrel, rabbit, or deer. I would always be somewhere else(horseback riding, miles away) when the cousins were slaughtering a pig or a cow. But I guess if I got hungry enough, I would pull the trigger.

    Before they kicked Higgins to the curb, did they make him pay back the salary he earned while writing this campaign fantasy fiction on government time?

    Putin set out to acquire Ukraine, but he got blocked by a hastily formed coalition of whoever was available. He had to settle for partition, the hard way. In retaliation, he “did a Ukraine” on the USA itself. Putin’s advantage in Ukraine was that he had a contingency plan in case Ukraine didn’t play along, so his partition effort succeeded. Nobody ever dreamed that the USA was vulnerable to a foreign coup, so there was no contingency for that. We had put everything, and then some, into military superiority. Now we are sitting here with a Russian puppet in the White House and nobody has a clue what to do next. In that case, we have to form a strategy after we have already been infiltrated and subverted, which is gonna be tough. When the liberals say “Resistance”, they ain’t kidding.

    the not wrong part

    WTF?

  • Iron Monkey

    I was in Northern Ireland for a while in the 1980s–my brother married a woman from Derry–and can tell you as an interested observer but one who could get a on a plane a leave it behind–that civil war and everything about it is as stressful, unsettling and horrific as you can imagine. It makes everyone crazy. It makes lives shorter. It kills even those who don’t die as a result of the shooting or bombing war.

    It isn’t anything to write memos about.

    • Ducksworthy

      I’m sure Trump is to blame for my shingles flareup.

      • 451 Byrnes

        Thanks, O’Bama!

      • ahughes798

        Good lord, I’m sorry. I hope they heal up soon!

  • Mahousu

    Wolfgang Pauli supposedly read a rather incoherent physics paper once and said, “This isn’t right. This isn’t even wrong.” (Das ist nicht nur nicht richtig; es ist nicht einmal falsch.)
    That’s the one way I could justify saying “It’s not wrong” about the memo.

    • Jamoche

      ‘On two occasions I have been asked, — “Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?” In one case a member of the Upper, and in the other a member of the Lower, House put this question. I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.’ – Charles Babbage

  • Husband Of Mrs God

    Oh, groan, I can’t afford all the $200 words. Asking “what does that mean” five times a second.

  • Husband Of Mrs God

    The Donald is furious, so there’s that.

  • Ducksworthy

    So. Russian treason schemes are justified. For Reasons.

  • armed_bears

    And Jr. is receiving this stuff ’cause now we live in a monarchic oligarchy?

  • 451 Byrnes

    These days it is fucked o’clock at least twice a day…

    • BFD

      If it’s fucked o’clock, does that mean I can have a drink?

  • Jo Mathie

    “Actually, it’s not wrong at all. The not-wrong part is just, well, buried a bit I guess by some of the wackier parts.”
    At this point Republicans are like hamsters on a wheel peddling furiously to get away whatever one of their friends has said and on to something even stupider.

  • Don’t you libtards get it yet?
    Liberals are not actually Americans! They just /live/ there and because they are against things conservatives want, and won’t give them everything they want, then they have to be destroyed for the good of the Republic that they have just decided is more of a dictatorship.
    Shesh, catch up sheeple.

    • Maybe

      My theory is that right-wingers actually think that liberals believe exactly the same way the righties do, but we say otherwise just to annoy them.

  • Snopes Shop

    Ok, that is the craziest thing I have read all week. Yet still not grounds for impeachment.

    • Boscoe

      I don’t need any more reasons. Gross incompetence is plenty.

  • ryp

    The whole memo reads like it was written as a work-for-hire by a leftist grad student too lazy to change their nomenclature to read like an actual right-winger wrote it.

    And there is no way Trump read the whole thing. Someone produced a half-page synopsis with bullet points and smaller words.

    • blaid droog

      Much smaller words.

      • NotDarkYet

        No words, just images …

    • Odd Jørgensen

      leftist bad, Trump awesome, fight for Trump! Trump best.

  • Christopher Story

    “There are three things all wise men fear: a sea at storm; a night with no moon; and the wrath of a good man”

    Liberals won the last civil war these jerk wads through, and I know we’ll kick ass again when called on. That being said, civil war and killing people over beliefs is bad, so I hope we never have to come to that again. Even jerkwads don’t deserve to die for being jerk wads.

    • Maybe

      This time I would be tempted to let them win. Then they could split off and form their own red country (much poorer than ours). And we could build a HUUGE wall.

      • Christopher Story

        And make them pay for their wall. Actually, your idea has merit. After a couple generations of non-regulations, Laffer Curve and Trickle Down economics, and theofascist anti-science dogma, the North could probably afford to just buy the states back at a discount.

      • handyhippie65

        it would be three countries. the east coast, the west coast,, and everything in between.

        • Maybe

          Maybe the east and west could annex a strip through Canada so we could form a single country.

          I want the part with Justin Trudeau.

  • Joel Dent

    Of course they want a civil war. They’re trying to get their win back from last time.

    • Maybe

      It isn’t strange that so many right-wingers celebrate their losses for centuries. They are still hung up on the Civil War (they lost). And they are determined to remember the Alamo (they lost).

      • Grokenstein

        It’s tough to maintain bitterness and hate if your enemies aren’t oppressing you, stealing from you, or kicking your ass.

      • Boscoe

        Looking at the kind of people they vote for, it is clear that they embrace failure…

        • Maybe

          They’d better be really careful about embracing Donald Trump. They’re risking political STDs.

      • bettycat

        Don’t forget the Third Reich, another one in the loss column.

        • Maybe

          I think this love of losses is related to their love of victim-hood.

    So when does Trump threaten to nuke us?

  • SterWonk

    Amazingly, it seems he did manage to get one part right: he used “meme” correctly.

  • blaid droog

    If this memo didn’t contain so many multisyllabic words it could easily be something 45 himself spewed out. Or palin.

  • This would make a great sitcom: “Friends” meets “Alpha House.” A bunch of average normal RWNJs sit around discussing conspiracies and what not while trying to actually influence policy and law by a steady campaign of memes, Reddit posts, and emailing Congress and the President. The occasional visit from the secret service. Cameos and guest appearances by all the RWNJ celebs. It could be one of those shows that has a limited story with a definite ending… maybe the candidate of choice actually fucks up and wins the WH and these guys get jobs in the admin.

    I think I could start working on the plot outline and pilot…

    • Boscoe

      Lol I totally picture the secret service playing the Endora role. Your idea would definitely make a nice spinoff of The President Show…

  • WhoCheckedRussia’sVoterID

    A global maoist conspiracy…

    …when the FUCK do we start seeing the effects of this Maoist conspiracy? Shouldn’t I at least be getting some more time off at work??

    • Boscoe

      Unfortunately, the effects of the Maoist conspiracy are as tangible as Obama’s conspiracy to suspend the constitution and take everyone’s guns.

  • sillyclucker

    Do you seriously expect me to believe that Trump understood all those bigly words ?

    • Boscoe

      No. I’m sure Don Jr. drewed him a nice crayon drawling that splained it to him.

  • A Bashful Nobody

    Hmm….perhaps this memo only exists in a quantum state. Right next to the Higgs bosons.

  • Boscoe

    So, let me get this straight: there is an underground insurgency to overthrow this president (with votes, and/or the law, whichever comes first) just because he supports and represents a culture where only straight white racist christian males matter and everyone else can just STFU and sit the fuck down?

    Sign me up.

  • Boscoe

    Don’t forget that everything coming out of the mouths and keyboards of the right is 100% projection. So basically, this guy just spilled the beans on the alt-right’s entire structure.

  • NotDarkYet

    Looks like someone found the postmodern text generator.

    Trump loved it? LOLOL…right. When Trump came across the likes of “It is through such post-modern constructs that interoperable narratives”, his tiny brain shrunk some more and went supernova.

    • Nasty Girl Brianna

      All Trump could comprehend in that long, multi-syllabic, and surprisingly correctly spelled screed were the words “Trump” and “war”. And Trump got all tingly in his belly which quickly moved down to his nether regions, resulting in a raging woody that even naked pictures of Melania couldn’t produce.

      And Don Jr., noticing the rising bulge in his father’s pants, pulled his best Beavis and Butthead impression: “Heh heh heh. When do we start killing leftists, Dad?”

      These are some sick, sick people.

  • kareemachan
