"Pretending to not being a sociopath would have been good politics, that is, good for his re-election prospects. But this is of course beyond him. Instead, Trump has declared this pandemic a hoax, and he has devoted his energy to defending Confederate statues and police violence."
a statue of the "virgin" mary set on fire in dorchester (boston neighborhood)
while not like confederates,
many have been oppressed by christians (missionaries just a different flavor of settler colonialism)
(also, i can acknowledge some people have been helped by christianity ...)
i'm all for taking down statues:
no gods, no masters
using rational arguments against neo-confederate in white house misses the point
there is nothing rational about president (or supporters)
so you might as well be speaking esperanto to americans when pointing out irrationality of president's actions and policies
but with covid response of country taking a toll (not the least on voters and their families); costs of gross incompetence are getting more clear every day
