Reap the Whirlwind, USA

The 45th President of the United States of America — Donald J Trump — is an accused rapist.

You know this, I know this, they know it, she knows it, who doesn’t know it?

All those holier than thou Evangelicals know it.

At least 25 women claim to know it.

All too well.

Does Barron know it?

I bet Ivanka and Tiffany know it. And Don Jr. And Eric. And Jared.

Yeah. Jared knows it.

Jeffery Epstein knew it, as well as a 13-year-old Jane Doe whom he was accused of raping together with our President.

His current stony-faced wife Melania Trump must know it.

His ex-wife Ivana Trump surely knows it. In fact, she accused the now US President of raping her in a fit of rage in 1989. According to Harry Hurt III in his 1993 book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, 45 twisted her arm and pulled out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, after which he violently raped her.

Those women could’ve been you. Or your daughter, mother, granddaughter, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, best friend, neighbor.

Feel it.

Feel the rage. The shame. The guilt. The pain. The sorrow. The helplessness.

The seeds are sown

Vendela Kirsebom knows it.

In 1993 Trump sat beside the Swedish model and harassed her all evening after which she is quoted as saying “He is the most vulgar man I have ever met.”

Donald Trump is a grotesque end product of US Imperial patriarchal capitalism and white supremacy.

The façade of US liberal respectability has been completely abandoned and the true murderous face — one of racial purity, settler colonialism, Zionist manifest destiny and careless rape of mother earth — scowls at us all.

The beast has taken over.

And over it is. As in game over.

Rapists never stop willingly. Rapists never just leave. Rapists don’t become nice guys.

On the contrary, rapists stay, and stay, and stay some more.

They enjoy the nightmare, the torture. They suck the life force from their victims.

Their joy. Until it’s gone.

Rapists stay until there is no resistance left because that’s what gets them off. Resistance.

The 45th President of the United States of America Donald J Trump won’t leave office willingly. Ever.

Biden won’t remove him, or Warren or Sanders or Tulsi Gabbard.

Doesn’t seem likely at all.

Rather, Trump wants all of us to struggle while he repeatedly rapes us.

First the usual scapegoated resistors — the female, the poor, the disabled, the LGBTQI, the Black, the Brown, the Jew, the Muslim, the Indigenous, the immigrant, the journalist, the academic, the socialist, the artist.

Then the rest.

We know.

He needs to be removed by us — the People.

We all know this.
