Dear Mr. VP,
Let’s talk some more about last Friday. I know — you didn’t give the speech, and Steve Bannon wrote the speech, but I think when you took the Oath of Office next to the guy who gave it, you basically co-signed it.
“From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this moment on, it’s going to be America first.” So Sayeth The Donald.
It’s time for a….
Gerald L.K. Smith founded the America First party during WWII as an isolationist and highly nationalistic organization (SOUND FAMILIAR?). He ran for president as the party’s nominee in 1944 and got fewer votes than Vermin Supreme circa 2016, and Mr. Supreme wears a boot on his head and promised everyone a free pony. Anyway, good old Gerald was:
- A Holocaust denier who lobbied for the release of Nazi war criminals convicted during the Nuremberg Trials.
- A racist who wanted to “Fight mongrelization and all attempts being made to force the intermixture of the black and white races.”
- Absolutely an awful fucking human being. I’d rather go on a dinner date with Martin Shkreli.
Check out some old issues of his magazine The Cross and The Flag if you need some light bathroom reading. I’m sure you can find them under Bannon’s mattress next to his copy of “Aryan Women”.
What an excellent historical figure to evoke on the day of your Inauguration. Bravo. I’m going to go vomit now.
