Sex & American Politics

By Jagath Asoka

What is the number one issue in American politics? Is it Muslims, Mexicans, ISIS, taxes, building a wall, deleted emails, or sex? Yes, sex always trumps everything else when it comes to politics in this country. But, now, it is not just sex; it is sexual assault, not consensual sex that happens when each partner willingly chooses to participate.

I was stunned and literally had goosebumps when I heard for the first time on CNN what Trump had said about grabbing women’s vaginas with his octopus hands. Of course, Trump did not use the word vagina; I do not have to pussyfoot around because imagine for a moment, when you turn on TV, you keep hearing Trump’s words, “I moved on her like a bitch…, and when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the pussy.” “Grab them by the pussy,” is not just offensive language, flippant conversation, or locker-room banter: it is sexual assault. Of course, the word “pussy” was not used as a double entendre. Now, every day, a new woman appears on TV and says, “Trump touched my vagina.” I think, I will be hearing this word “pussy” for a long time in American politics. It is the new “Watergate” and “Monica Lewinsky” in American politics.

trump-and-clintonDuring my life I have heard a lot of sex talk, guys bragging about their sexual achievements, but I have never heard someone bragging about sexual assault.

Well, I am glad that I have been having a very open and honest dialogue about sex, drugs, religion, and everything else that you can think of with my son—Rocco is a teenager now. Had I not done that I would be in a very awkward situation. I am somewhat blessed; I do not have to explain most of these lewd, lascivious sexual assaults on women and pernicious political rhetoric against immigrants, because my thirteen-year-old son is capable of differentiating what is good and bad, what is right and wrong, and what is moral and immoral. The saddest thing is that some adults have lost this innate ability to see what kids see as univocal.

The amazing thing about this election is that the kids are teaching adults about moral values and question their parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunts who are supporting and defending Trump’s positions on women, immigrants, and physically or mentally handicapped hapless human beings. If you have been raised by a woman, you know one thing about women: They not only have to keep their heads high and move on when they are attacked, denigrated, assaulted, or raped but also often get blamed for their husbands’ sins. I guess this is what we see on TV every day.

When Bill Clinton’s sex scandals were bruited in the media, the Christian fundamentalists in this country crucified him, and he is still trying to resurrect himself; yes, Bill Clinton’s sex scandals follow him like his own shadow; actually, Bill’s sex scandals have become Hillary’s shadow. The same Christian fundamentalists who crucified Bill Clinton, now talk about forgiveness and redemption for Trump for sexually assaulting women. They even say that Trump is a born-again Christian. If this is true, I think Jesus would die again to be resurrected again. Most Christian fundamentalists have chosen to ignore sexual assaults, bullying, and racism that Trump has been displaying openly, and they talk about redemption and forgiveness; to those who say that we must forgive Trump, I would ask: Would you forgive Trump if he had grabbed your daughter’s, mother’s, wife’s, girlfriend’s, or sister’s vagina? I do not know about you, but I feel like saying, “Praise the Lord,” and sing hallelujah, because I truly do not know what else I can do. I am not talking about pious Christians who are compassionate and moral: I am talking about sanctimonious piety which is common in every religion.

This is not a good time to be a brown person in this country, because we all look like Mexican Muslims to Trump’s supporters. If you are unaware of what has been going on in American politics, here is some of the things that I have seen on TV.

When Trump delivers his schizophrenic, jingoistic mumbo-jumbo to his minions, some of them would chant the word “nigger,” like the yogis in India would chant the word “om.”

I recently saw some American teenagers vehemently chanting, “Build the wall; build the wall!” As far as Mexicans are concerned, they are the ones who change diapers and give baths to bedridden hapless elderly Americans. Mexicans have these jobs because most Americans would not do take these jobs, not even for higher wages.

The majority of spineless Republicans ignore this ignominious behavior. When Trump said Obama is not a US citizen, his minions knew exactly what Trump meant: A Muslim nigger, born in Africa, who is not a member of the Master Race, can never be the US President. Being a US citizen is not enough for a Muslim nigger to be the president; he needs to produce a “White Blood Certificate.”

I am sad to say that some brown Sri Lankans are among these sycophants who are supporting Trump. I am not a biblical prophet or Nostradamus, but even a dead person would predict the obvious outcome if Obama were allowed to run for a third term.

Trump is the most popular American in Russia. However, some Russians call Trump and his minions “Useful Idiots.” Even though it sounds like an oxymoron, Russians love Trump and his minions because their anti-American rhetoric is the best political ads in Russia. No mega advertising or propaganda machine can do what Trump and his minions are doing to denigrate this country.

You need to live in this country to experience what Americans are going through these days. The danger in American politics is that fringe elements, including the Christian fundamentalists, who are obnoxious and loud, often violent, and always insolent, are trying to determine the future of this great nation.

    Sex is the culture of Europeans and the descendants from Europe. Sex is highly exploited in those cultures. It is clear how the media did not report and the american law enforcement did not take action on Bill clinton’s sexual escapades since he was a university student, through out his life as the Arkansas governor and then finally the President. EVen Hilary had known those things. But, it is the culture. Nothing much to talk about.

    At present, Hilary is pro-jewish and pro-jewish media help her a lot and what is reported is all lies. IT looks many govt agencies, foreign govts mostly europe and Canada as well as United Nations involve in defeating Trump.

    Foreign govts contributing to American elections is not new. It had happened in the past. But, now, they complain about Russia as tit is not what they want to see that should happen.

    It looks it is an amazing Joke.

    Your article is what is read completely from American media which is entirely propaganda. If you need to learn the truth you need to read from every side and compare those with the things you observe.

    As for what I read, actually, Trump has not met Putin. but, Clintons has met putin nad has socualized with them. Anyway, your article is not worth rsponsding as per aforementioned reasons.

    What is happening is completely pre-programmed. In 2015 or earlier whn Hilary had to leave the position it was because of this illegal competer set up and three countries had broken into the content in it.

    So, Getting Trump as the opponent is pre planned and how would they react if the email scandle is exposed was also pre planned. They wanted trump because he was not ahndling it well.

    Anyway, it looks thing are not going well and that is why they want Trump to leave it.

    If you Canada, Europe, United nations, Obamas, Republicans themselves and many VIP – americans are working against Trump. That is unprecedented.

    Anyway, you are not the only american who is in the dark. It is a natural thing there. It happens everyday with your media.

    Thanks. Interesting write-up.So, the Idiots are not confined to Sri Lanka.The Sri Lankan idiots when they move to America, are still idiots. They add to the American Idiot pool of red necks.

    At least we know the Buddhists in Lanka are idiots…Here is support through the Bulath Vine, Vettila Vine, Grape Vine. from 2 years ago..

    Sri Lankan Buddhists …Friday, 25 April 2014

    This week its not one idiot, but rather a very large group. Actually, this is usually the case as most idiots follow other idiots. In fact I may just have to start calling it idiots of the week all the time, as surely some fool will do whatever they get told by these weekly nominees.

    It turns out that this week Sri Lankan Buddhists have gone and deported a British tourist for a vile crime against their local beliefs. So, for this week I give you a few choices to make you see how rational these people they are. So why did Buddhists export a British tourist?

    a) for killing Buddhist monk?
    b) peeing on a Buddhist statue?
    c) having a Buddha tattoo?

    If you chose (c) you are right. As you know they are highly logical people these Buddhists. Nope they are just as stupid as any other theists that take offense to the dumbest stuff. Muslims don’t like pictures of Muhammad and these Buddhists don’t like pictures of Buddha. To put a little more perspective. This country is 112 richest country in the world according to the IMF, yet they deem it necessary to send tourists with money away as they feel a little hurt. This is a country with a nominal GDP per capital of 3,139 USD.

    But they, gets get upset about a Buddha tattoo when we have no running water. Logical right? No, Sri Lankan Buddhists you are idiots.

    Their leaders are no different, including the current President, Gon Gamarala. A 2500 Year-Old Culture That Was! So, Amaerican Idiots have support from Sri Lanka Idiots. After All, the Sri Lankans Average IQ is 79, and are a plenty of idiots, compared to America, like Gon Gamarala.

    Dr Jagath Asoka,

    “What is the number one issue in American politics?”

    Idiots!. Same in Sri Lankan Politics. Idiots.
    Example: Gon Gamarala.

    Those 7 Times Atheists Nailed Everything

    7 of the best I could gather. Agnostic, secularist, free-thinker, non-believer, atheist – no matter how you label it, these guys make some amazing points on the inconsistencies of religion and theism.

    Sit tight and keep your head down.

    Every country, every now and then, goes through an aberration such as now, when a vociferous vocal minority takes centre stage.

    But America will endure the odious rabble that is now embarrassing that great nation, and will certainly come out stronger. As it has done time and sagain.

    As ever, with God on its side.

    Jagath,
    Whether Donald or Hilary or Obama will not make much of a difference to us who live in Sri Lanka.

    The issue is these elections are big shows. if you don’t realise this by now, you’ve missed the bus long time back. Read Chomsky and others who analyse American foreign policy.

    Last time, it was a black, this time it will be a woman, next time it will be someone from LGBT and the show will go on. But the hegemony and the control of the whole world by the oligarch will continue. Hilary has already supported the big businesses. Only trump is open about those. And we are given red herrings daily. Sexual assault is not a pleasant thing. but the mere fact that we are to argue on it shows that the job is already done and the purpose is achieved.
    Have a nice election show

      Election is a show. It is meant to that way. But you misunderstand and not clear in your head of what you are talking.

      For example can you explain “Last time, it was a black, this time it will be a woman, next time it will be someone from LGBT and the show will go on. But the hegemony and the control of the whole world by the oligarch will continue.”

      First, it is not angels living in America, just ordinary human beings. Further, competition is their norm or culture. It is from there you start to evaluate their democratic and social standards. If a short, brown, Muslim, asian can be easily won by a white American, is it not competition? When Trump advocates these people are stealing the whites jobs, economy, happy life, that is some reference point for the white Americans to stand there and think. It openly all over the world an American is open to an attack by a Muslims fanatic or ISIS. It need not to a Muslim rowdy country like Iran or Pakistan. But there is no law in America against Muslims like PTA in Lankawe. In fact, American laws are more accommodating of Muslim Religion’s anti-equal religious maxims much better than many famous European humanistic law employing countries. Lankawe had its standardization. In contrast, White Americans are forced to give their places to minorities by Affirmative Action plans. Recently, one of the worst President in the US history, Bush said in a Blacks celebration, “A great nation does hide or sweep under carpet its problems. Rather it publicly accepts it and work for a solution to that”. Will Lankawe publicly accept the war crime and probe it? Even Bush did not disenfranchise Mexicans, then no talk of Blacks. But the most honored leader of Lankawe(or the worst crook in reality) Don Stephen disenfranchised the Tamils it were their women who were the only people toiling for the country’s foreign Exchange that time. An ultra-shameless deed of leader of a nation to earn title “Father of the Nation” Now, from that day onward, British built Tea and Rubber industry has lost to the competition like weak African countries like Kenya, uganda, Malawi,Nigeria….. . Mexican really bring a problem into America. They are one of the leading truck traffickers in USA. But US laws do not put it on Mexican. They try to identify the criminal and punish them. Northern Province was designated as most crime free area from the very start the police started to collect information on that, and well into 1980s. By deploying the rapist army and forcefully employing the Tamils youth to drug business, North has the worst record now. The worst is Appe Andu is not allowing foreign NGOs to enter North and work on that problem. If NGO is a illegal- dirty word, that is only in Lankawe.

      Obama, an unknown lawyer in 2008 and junior senator, when he beat a highly decorated war veteran and a famous senior senators, it was not “Last time Black”. It was clearly on Democratic- Republican policy war. On that election people really hated Republican’s war and economic policies. When last time he beat another famous republican Mitt Romney, it is certainly not “last time black”.

      Lankawe, from 1948 has not had a serious, sincere, graceful, humanistic, compassionate, statesmanship, magnanimous… leader so far. Last election they did not have a person to stand for election. When CV, who has broke a record in North for his electability and voter preference, was suggested for EP, he was rejected by Sinhala intellectual unanimously saying “last time, this time and next time it is going to be Sinhala Buddhist in this country”; No Tamils, No Muslims, no Burger or Malays.. never.

      After killing a British citizen, who he tried to stop a Lankawe Lawmaker torturing another one, do you remember what you guys showed to Britain? Your idiot EP said he is the one going to appoint the next queen to Britain, so Britain better behave itself. What a hallucinogenic drug addict clowns would talk like that? You remember how JR conducted the Black July 1983 for the 13 armies’ death in a retaliatory fight with LTTE? You people threw chemical bombs on 145,000 of your own people. Thank god Americans did not burn the entire Middle East with Hydrogen Bombs, for destruction of their Twin Towers and 3000 deaths. Because, though they too are human being, high percentage of them have common sense too.

      Read what Dr. Ashok has said:
      This is not a good time to be a brown person in this country, because we all look like Mexican Muslims to Trump’s supporters. The again I am sad to say that some brown Sri Lankans are among these sycophants who are supporting Trump Then tell me what do you think about this Lankaweyans? Is the word idot not going to insult the English Language?

      You are only showing your foolish empty head when you say “Last time, it was a black, this time it will be a woman, next time it will be someone from LGBT and the show will go on. But the hegemony and the control of the whole world by the oligarch will continue.”

    Hon Doctor Asoka Obama is mixed race most people around the world know his mother is Caucasian.And by the way dont try to categorize yourself as brown skin to separate form blacks to be one step higher. Big of you to call others who have a different view to you as idiots. Not every one have your elitist view that “I know better”. In my opinion Hillery is as bad as Trump or race bating Obama who gave speech to UN only few weeks ago patting himself on the back for his achievements which include paying Iranian plane load of cash as ransom, releasing bunch of Islamic terrorist to get one Muslim sympathizer Bergdole back & Famously announcing drawing ever disappearing red lines.
