川普總統讓美國成為世界笑話 -公開在白宮推銷Goya 牌食品 / 紐約人 7.16.2020

最近世界許多媒體報導中共當局多位官員表示希望川普可以連任, 因為在川普的任期間美國幾十年間努力經營的世界聯盟幾乎瓦解, 而且讓美國在疫情中成為國際笑柄, 多次攻擊CDC的醫生Faucci和其他的科學家. 以下是最新有關於川普自己製造出來的新聞, 公開在社交媒體推廣捐錢給他的Goya品牌食品 (Goya 是美國品牌, 生產拉丁民族系列罐裝食品). 川粉們, 他的行為有讓美國更偉大嗎?  難怪中共巴不得川普繼續連任.

The President Is Shilling Beans

The President and his daughter Ivanka have been using their social-media accounts to advertise canned beans. On Twitter, she posed with a can of Goya black beans in her right hand, her left hand held as though cradling an imaginary cloud beneath the product. On Instagram, he sat at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, stars, stripes, and gold velvet curtains behind him, and Goya products arrayed in front of him. He held both thumbs up. In between attacking Joe Biden and the Times and touting his success at fighting the MS-13 gang, Trump tweeted, “.@GoyaFoods is doing GREAT. The Radical Left smear machine backfired, people are buying like crazy!” The First Family is fighting back against calls for a boycott of Goya after the company’s C.E.O., Robert Unanue, praised the President during a White House event last week.

“This one’s got everything: the Trump family, using official office to promote a private business, rewarding political allies with business help from the White House,” Noah Bookbinder, the executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group, tweeted. “So much corruption in one post, and likely a violation of ethics rules.” (According to the Department of Justice, “An employee’s position or title should not be used to coerce; to endorse any product, service or enterprise; or to give the appearance of governmental sanction.”) But corruption may not be the best term to describe this spectacle. The word implies something illicit, hidden from the public; the remedy for “corruption,” in political discourse, is usually “transparency.” The Trumps are, without a doubt, corrupting the Presidency in the sense that they are changing it beyond recognition, but they are doing it in plain view.

On the face of it, the shilling for beans is trolling. Like Trump’s lies, it’s a demonstration of power—he is saying, in effect, No matter how absurd, how blatantly false, how clearly spiteful and meaningless my statement or picture or post might be, you have no choice but to engage with it, because I am the President. Here, he wins every time: we do engage with his latest outrage, because ignoring it is the worse option.

As abuse of power goes, though, advertising Goya is almost negligible: smaller than the Ukraine scandal, or making pandemic aid to states conditional on loyalty and gratitude to the President, or threatening to withhold funding to school districts that do not reopen for in-person instruction. We’ve learned to move past Trump’s use of the Presidency as a protection racket and extortion machine—and we’ll move past Goya, too. But where will that take us?

Why You Should Add Crickets to Your Diet
When I’m at a loss for words to describe our political reality, I look to the work of Bálint Magyar. He is the Hungarian sociologist who has pioneered and systematized a language that political science can use to describe contemporary demagogues and the regimes they create. More than a decade ago, he described the Mafia state, a distinct political system built around a patron who distributes money and power. A year and a half ago, he told me that Trump acts “like a Mafia boss without a Mafia”: he couldn’t turn the United States into a Mafia state, but he was acting as though he could.

Since then, the U.S. has devolved in ways we couldn’t have imagined, and Magyar has continued his research on post-Communist autocracies, which, in turn, continue to offer ways to examine the American Presidency. Magyar’s new book, co-authored with Bálint Madlovics, is “The Anatomy of Post-Communist Regimes: A Conceptual Framework.” It contains, among other insights, a critique of how we usually talk about and measure corruption. Magyar and Madlovics write that the problem with measurements used by, say, Transparency International, which produces an annual index of perceived corruption, is that the index assumes that corruption represents a departure from a norm: “They understand the state by its formal identity: as dominantly an institution of the public good, with some subordinates who deviate from that purpose and abuse their position by requesting or accepting bribes and appointing cronies without a legitimate basis.” This view of corruption fails when confronted with a government to which corruption is central, or in which corruption is not voluntary but coercive—where the corrupt relationship is forced by one partner upon the other. In other words, conventional measures of corruption are not applicable to the U.S. under Trump. Corruption is no longer deviant in this country: it is instead the defining characteristic of this Presidency.

The U.S. is still a long way from meeting Magyar’s definition of a Mafia state. The pattern of relationships created by the Administration, however, points to what Magyar and Madlovics call “top-down state capture,” in which the people in charge instrumentalize the apparatus of the state for their own gain. This kind of state capture leads to a “criminal state pattern,” where corrupt relationships imposed from the top become permanent and unavoidable.

The term “criminal state pattern” is extraordinary even to contemplate at this moment, when, in the wake of nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, our society is questioning established notions of crime, criminality, and their opposite: the police. On the day of Trump’s Instagram post, the Times published a compilation of videos of New York City police attacking protesters, the agents of the state menacing and beating people for exercising their political rights. Such incidents have been documented all over the country, in keeping with the rhetoric and behavior of the head of state. The President and the First Daughter hawking the canned beans of one of their supporters while police attack protesters in the streets and a preventable pandemic rages unchecked through vast swathes of the population is what a criminal state looks like. It’s cruel, ridiculous, disgusting. And the President gives it two thumbs up.

y因为你们家臭不要脸的猪党先发动全国左逼抵制goya的啊,许自己不要脸就不能别人反击?比共产党都操蛋
聽說是左派先抵制這個牌子,既然如此,伊凡卡為他打廣告找回損失又如何?
有些人恨“政治正确”更甚于恨共产党,捍卫自己支持的人更甚于捍卫法制。
川普声援Goya=川普推销Goya牌食品
紐約白左城怪怪的吧
紐約時報也墮落得不成樣子了
共產黨令人痛恨就是因為他們等於是政治正確做到極致
你说得太对了。
有些人恨“政治正确”更甚于恨共产党,捍卫自己支持的人更甚于捍卫法制。


完全同意! 這就是反共運動需要注意的. 盲目的反共, 不尊重別人的觀點, 人權, 法治, 言論自由. 到時候只不過重複中共模板, 媳婦熬成婆, 再一次製造一個新的獨裁政權!

不认同你的观点! 中共令人痛恨因為他們: 獨裁, 殘暴, 不尊重法治, 貪婪, 不擇手段, 無恥歪曲事實, 竄改歷史, 藐視人權。 中共这批流氓和政治正确没有太大关系。 世界上左派政党没有几个像毛共可以在短短70年可以把国家,世界搞到如此恐怖: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_anti-capitalist_and_communist_parties_with_national_parliamentary_representation
不认同你的观点! 中共令人痛恨因為他們: 獨裁, 殘暴, 不尊重法治, 貪婪, 不擇手段, 無恥歪曲...


中共做這一切就是因為他們有一套相信的東西,然後認為為了達成可以不擇手段啊...白左這方面也越來越嚴重了,侵犯別人言論自由,攻擊別人不信他們信的東西就是落伍無知等等...甚至像Antifa等組織背後可能都有共黨資助
完全同意! 這就是反共運動需要注意的. 盲目的反共, 不尊重別人的觀點, 人權, 法治, 言論自由....


你列出來的這些好像都是進步派在做的喔...所謂保守派就是支持保守現在的樣子...進步派才有一個遠大理想要不擇手段去達成
“中共當局多位官員表示希望川普可以連任, 因為在川普的任期間美國幾十年間努力經營的世界聯盟幾乎瓦解”

中共官員教美國人選拜登然後聯合世界對付中共。樓主你是認真的嗎?
“中共當局多位官員表示希望川普可以連任, 因為在川普的任期間美國幾十年間努力經營的世界聯盟幾乎瓦解”...


這是最近許多國際媒體的報導, 中共官員認為川普連任對中共崛起利大於弊:

等等Goya不是拉丁裔群的品牌嗎?紐約時報這麼政治不正確,總統支持一下非白裔的品牌不行嗎?
纽约人不是纽约时报。档次完全不同。你可以搜索一下 New Yorker。

总统当然可以支持少数民族品牌。但是他支持的方法非常低俗,像是在主持电视节目,没有领导的风范,亵渎总统的位置。

还有,他只有支持捐很多钱给他的企业,其他少数民族企业他完全不理睬。这种向钱看的政客作风不适合当民主制国家的领导人。川普缺乏道德底线,为了达到目的,不择手段,这也可能是为什么他多次赞扬金正恩,习近平,普京的原因。
请不要改变文章的说法。文章不是这样写的。中共官员喜欢的是川普不稳定的个性和低劣的人格。川普上任后造成种族纠纷恶化,而且锁国政策让中共在南海,东亚,中亚,国际贸易组织,联合国可以大展身手。我个人认为,川普的反移民,排外政策已经对美国的旅游业,旅馆业,餐饮业,邮轮业,国际贸易,高科技公司,国际关系,还有所有的高等学府造成了严重的伤害。这些都是中共梦寐以求的。
不管什么党派,打得政治旗帜是左是右,只要是不尊重言论自由,践踏基本人权,谎话连篇,藐视法制系统,就是和人类文明,普世价值作对。每一个国家,每一个政党,如果不注意,都有可能会沦为下一个贪婪,残暴,无耻的中共。人性有丑恶的一面,只要不健全的系统给他机会,比毛泽东,斯大林,希特勒更可怕的人都会出现。

左左就别在这里装蒜了,看看美国现在,谁没有言论自由,因为发表言论被开除的是你们所谓的自由派还是保守派。上街拉雕像打砸抢的是你们自由派还是保守派。美国的自由充分展现了左逼的丑陋

“左左”?可不可以不要骂人?而且你也一直不断的改变话题。我们讨论的是为什么川普在白宫推销Goya罐头的行为属于低级行为? 我认为川普在白宫办公室吹捧Goya罐头举动贬低美国总统的身份。可以不可以不要帮我带“左左”这种大帽子,帮大家解释一下为什么川普这种行为可以让美国更伟大?

左左是骂人?你觉得左是很让人羞耻的一件事么?我不介意别人叫我右右,你愿意叫随意,因为我觉得我的右派价值观是正确的。

我从来没说“trump这种行为可以让美国更伟大”,不要自己竖靶子自己打。我这个回复是针对你扯到斯大林毛泽东言论自由这些才回的。

至于低级行为,再说一遍,左逼们因为trump邀请goya ceo到白宫发言就抵制goya,这才是low逼无极限的行为,对付low逼就要用low逼听的懂得语言

“人性有丑恶的一面,只要不健全的系统给他机会,比毛泽东,斯大林,希特勒更可怕的人都会出现。” 這句話有問題嗎? "左左" 是你在幫我扣帽子, 我不認識你, 不喜欢你帮我带帽子。我也不認為自己是左派。解决问题如果把自己捆绑于狭窄的意识形态,就很容易被政客,野心家利用。说到这里就这样。
