Can you clarify what you mean with “I’m with Trump on this one”?
Fsj!

Seriously, though, what does Slavoj Žižek mean by "In sex as well as in politics, we take refuge in catastrophic scenarios in order to avoid the actual deadlock."?
Is "deadlock" some BDSM thing in this context?

Yep, he definitely wants the military to shoot US civilians if they step out of line.

The same messaging on Facebook and Instagram is welcomed by Zuckie, who is happy for the business.

So, in light of Trump's retweeting the message "the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat", I trust it is fair game to make similar explicit statements about Trumps.

Trump tweets that he is going to designate Antifa a terrorist organization. I’m not personally a big fan, but the damage they may have wrought just absolutely pales compared to that caused by Trump and the GOP. So that’s where to look for real terrorists!

Along with the Republican party, the Boogaloo boys should also be counted as a "domestic terrorist organization". Not that this is a legal concept (he made it up, or more likely, heard about it from Fox News), but it sounds plausible...

There was that inconvenient matter of an election though...

You are right. That has something to do with what is happening in the streets at this very moment.

Judge: You're charge with 3 counts of looting. How do you plead?
Defendant: Absolutely not guilty, your honor! Because of Trump's racism, I felt compelled to lift a few sneakers!

Soothing words from Trump today: “the whole world was laughing at Minneapolis over the police station getting burned“. And I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt here and assume that he is not lying. Because that says so much about his world. His and the Boogaloo boys’.

Having listened to a bit more of Trump’s sermon to the governors today, he is badly brain damaged. And this is likely to get much worse. I would like to say, “before it gets better”, but have little reason to believe it will.

This is probably increasing the chance of you getting one of your wishes in November. So don’t fret so!
