Above: Trump and friends get curiouser and curiouser.
Sarah Palin commented recently on the petty-ass little thuggery stuff on the part of quote-unquote protesters at Trump rallies just days after a Trump supporter sucker punched a quote-unquote protester being led out a Trump rally. Folks, I think we've entered Wonderland.
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," you say.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Palin-esque Cat "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" you say.
"You must be," said the Palin-esque Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
Truth be told, when Palin brayed her support of Trump's take on the punk-ass little thuggery stuff , she was actually just quoting lines from a poem by Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request).
Way back in the 1860s, there was a Republican campaign as cray-cray as the current one, and Rufina Permelia Heath, distant kin to Sarah Palin (Rufina was the daughter of Sarah Palin's great-great-great-great-grandfather, Lafayette Bonzo Heath), endorsed one Reginald Remington Trump (information is HERE). Rufina Heath also supported Trump's call for violence against anyone who questioned his assertions and proclamations.
Dickinson heard Rufina Heath rile up a crowd at a rally, and he immortalized her bombast in a poem called "The Just Desserts of that petty, punk-ass little Thuggery Stuff" (below on the left). Dickinson's poem inspired third-cousin Emily to pen her poem "The Sweets of Pillage" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
“The Just Desserts of that petty, punk-ass
little Thuggery Stuff that's been going
on, can be known
To no one but the quote-unquote
A passion for divisiveness
In her whiniest Speech –
By Emily Dickinson:
The Sweets of Pillage, can be known
To no one but the Thief –
Compassion for Integrity
Is his divinest Grief –
Why, just today, a prominent Trump supporter declared on CNN that if trouble were to break out at a brokered convention, “riots aren’t necessarily a bad thing.” I can just hear Palin barking in a shrill, loud voice, "Off with their heads!"
