Trump – The biggest Cock of the Year

By: Chua Chin Leng

Why should a cock be called a rooster? The Year of the Cock should be called the Year of the Cock, not the Rooster. The Chinese version is simple and clear. It is called simply 鸡年,and it is a 公鸡 or cock. 鸡年 has always been the Year of the Cock, never the Year of the Hen or 母鸡. Look at all the pictures used to welcome the Year of the Cock will remove all doubts that it could be anything else. What is a rooster but a cock.

Now is the third day of the Chinese New Year and there is no need to stay on the side of niceties. Would it be strange to call Donald Trump the biggest rooster? It sure sounds funny. Donald Trump has emerged as the biggest Cock of the Year, or perhaps the century. Less than one week in office and he has behaved every inch like a cock. His entrance into the White House is the prelude to the Year of the Cock. The Cock is ruling in the White House.

One thing positive about this Cock is that he keeps to his promises, at least so far. He has written off the TPP, the pact that Obama wanted to use to make Americans great by containing China and ruling the western Pacific. But nothing beats Trump’s ruling on closing the door to Muslim/ISIS immigrants.

Without consulting any agency, without coordinating with the immigration office and countries around the world, without informing the airlines and other modes of transportation that were bringing the immigrants into America, he announced his edict in his White House office like an Emperor. This is like throwing a spanner into the spokes of immigration procedures. People entering the USA or hoping to enter the USA were slammed by the door. No entry even if they hold valid travel documents and the Green Cards issued by the Americans.

Though he directly banned 6 Muslim countries in the Middle East, apparently citizens of Europe of Muslim origins were also affected. Protests were every where, in the USA and across the world. Muslim countries were furious. Airports were jammed and in a mess. Trump said everything went on smoothly. Commonsense would tell you with such a short notice, with the world and the US immigration officers still not knowing what happened, how could it go smoothly.

But that was the Cock of the Year crowing. Trump is not the only cock caught up in this ruse. There were many silly cocks wanting to enter the USA but were unable to. So how did the cocks respond? This is unAmerican!

How silly. This is the real Americans. They have been like that since the days they invaded North America, murdered the native Red Indians, hunted the Africans as slaves, passed racist legislations and practised racism for centuries, and bullying and manipulating the Arabs and Muslims to kill each other, labelling any country that they opposed as dangerous except themselves. This is American Exceptionalism. And this Cock of the Year will carry this Exceptionalism further. He may even legalised the Ku Klux Klan and honour his grandfather who was a leader of such a gang.

Welcome to the Year of the Cock. There will be more cocks crowing and more cock up events for sure.
