In the 2018 mid-term elections, Dennis Hof was elected to Congress, in Nevada.
That’s not too surprising, he’s a Republican.
Nevada hates Democrats and always votes Republican.
Not only that but Dennis Hof was a big advocate of tougher immigration laws.
He was also a supporter of expanding, not limiting, gun rights.
He was also a big fan of Trump.
So it’s not too surprising that Nevada elected him, they share those values.
But what did surprise me is that Dennis Hof also owned five brothels.
In homage to Trump’s book ‘The Art of the Deal’, he published ‘The Art of the Pimp’.
But this didn’t stop him winning 68.3% of the vote.
Two famous evangelical Christians, Roger Stone and Grover Norquist, even supported him.
But the most surprising fact for me, about Dennis Hof winning the election, was as follows:
He’d been dead 3 weeks.
His body was found by porn star Ron Jeremy and a prostitute who worked for Hof.
So why would the people of Nevada elect a dead pimp?
Because the law in Nevada is, if they die, the winning candidate is replaced by a member of their own party.
So Dennis Hof would be replaced by a Republican, that was all the voters cared about.
They preferred anyone, even a dead pimp, to a Democrat.
Jennifer O’Kane, who had been repeatedly raped by Hof, said “No Democrat was going to win, that’s just politics.”
That’s what’s happening in America: the Montagues and the Capulets.
Nobody is really listening to what any of the candidates are saying, no one cares.
Policies won’t change anyone’s mind: Republicans just hate Democrats and that’s that.
It’s like gang warfare, the Bloods versus the Crips, on a national scale.
You are loyal to your party, your house, your gang, and you don’t change sides.
It’s nothing to do with rational argument.
That’s why, in his retirement speech in 1796, George Washington warned against political parties:
“They are likely in the course of time to become potent engines, by which cunning ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.
It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarm; kindles the animosity of one party against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.”
Doesn’t all that sound strangely familiar?
“Kindles the animosity of one party against another”
“Domination of one faction over another”
“Cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be able to subvert power”
“Opens the door to foreign influences”
It’s almost as if George Washington could see into the future.
