So, I’m reading a few things and I stumble on this bat shit crazy story from a former FBI guy, Frank Figliuzzi, about how President Donald J Trump is signalling to Nazis, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists “Heil Hitler!” with his choice of the term for which government flags will be flown at half mast to honor the recent murder victims in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.
Let me step back for a second: There is NOTHING funny, clever, or wise about making gratuitous references to Hitler, a truly evil person who unleashed Hell on earth. It is repugnant.
He — this Frank Figliuzzi in his blue suit, blue shirt, coordinated tie, sleek haircut — looks like a normal enough guy, right? And, he was with the FBI, right?
Look at his mouth. Let me tell you about the words that came out of that nasty mouth. Guy says President Trump is sending “coded messages” to Nazis, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. This guy.
Yes, you read that correctly. Let me break that down for you. Here is the deal.
1. President Trump ordered governments flags be flown at half mast until sunset of the 8th of August. Flags are lowered for the night at sunset.
His actual words were as follows:
“Our Nation mourns with those whose loved ones were murdered in the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, and we share in the pain and suffering of all those who were injured in these two senseless attacks.”
In explaining his decision to lower Old Glory, President Trump further said it would be a “mark of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible acts of violence.”
He conspicuously did not say: “And, it will be a signal of support to all of my Nazi, neo-Nazi, and white supremacist supporters, friends, and relatives. Heil Hitler!”
2. Former FBI Counterintelligence Investigator, Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi said:
“The numbers eight-eight [August is the 8th month; the flags will be lowered through the 8th day of the 8th month] are very significant in the neo-Nazi and the white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them, the numbers eight-eight stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ ”
OK, just stepping back for a second, I have to admit I didn’t really consciously know that innocent “H” was the 8th letter of the English alphabet. My bad. You?
3. This was said on the Brian Williams MSNBC the 11th Hour show.
Brian did not call the medics or ask what might have happened if the massacres had happened in a different month or a different day. Because, of course, this was MSNBC and Brian Williams and this is the kind of baloney they have on that show.
I do have to admit that I had to read the story several times before I really got it — President Trump sent a “coded message” to the Nazis, the neo-Nazis, and the white supremacists in the United States: “Heil Hitler!”
But, those artful geniuses over at MSNBC, they caught him.
I wonder what they might have come up with if President Trump boldly raised the flags again after sunset on say, the 7th or the 9th? [Quick, tell me what the 7th and 9th letters of the English alphabet are. Haha, I thought so. Let’s check in with FF and Brian?]
But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? Hey, look folks, let’s get back to work, shall we? This nonsense has gone on long enough and far enough. Let’s check in with reality again. That includes y’all over at MSNBC.
I’m starting a Kickstarter for a couple of complimentary lobotomies for MSNBC’s Brian Williams and former FBI guy Frank Figliuzzi. Chip in, please. Thanks.
