A few recent sickening details HERE.
The burning soul of fellow religious fanatic lawyer Antonin Scalia lives on in Bagpiper Bill Barr, the relentless, moralistic worldview that justifies every outrage in lawyerly cavil. They are the moral equivalents of the original Jesuits, lawyers for the Spanish Inquisition, defenders of the faith and the auto de fe.
The over-the top, in-your-fucking-face-asshole stuff this man spouts is horrifying. He was careful not to tip his hand during the confirmation process, not to mention his fervent willingness to protect the president for anything and everything, erring on the side of caution. Now that he’s the top law enforcement officer in Trump’s United States of America, he’s playing with house money. He’s in like Flynn, like Kavanaugh, like Trump himself.
His moralistic war-like view of life, Christian Good versus Secular Evil, stems from his conservative, religious worldview — if Jesus tells you what to do, you never have to worry about not being right. Anyone who opposes you, for any reason, is irredeemably evil, end of story. This merciless worldview flows from an enraged morality, the logic cold and final, expressed, even if ineloquently, in provocative terms no law can touch.
If I was a better person, a better Christian, I might be able to take a less violent view of this latest incarnation of that power-drunk, unappealably assertive religious zealot who wants to make you do the thing whether you want to do it or not, whether its fair or not. I’m just not that good, yet.
If you want to get your guts in an uproar, go read this short insightful article about this righteous, wrathful, Christian warrior and the latest outrage from Trump’s personal Roy Cohn, the (historically corrupt) Attorney General of the United States (for fuck’s sake).
