Here’s something we didn’t know about ourselves, bedwetting libtards that we are. Ready for some hard-won self-knowledge?
We are pedophiles. All of us. Even if we don’t realize it, we are. And, most of us are cannibals. Really. Yum, yum. When a band of illegal aliens raped and bludgeoned a white high school girl to death, and dismembered her with machetes, we helped cover it up. Every one of us. But that’s okay. Donald Trump knows all of our names and what we did. We will all be properly punished.
Christ on a skateboard, Max, where did you get this loopy shit? Apparently it’s what millions of Trump supporters believe. Not dozens. Millions. Noted author, documentarian and essayist Jeff Sharlet recently published a lengthy, powerful and disturbing piece in Vanity Fair titled “Inside the Cult of Trump, His Rallies Are Church and He Is the Gospel.” Eek.
One of the recurring bits in Sharlet’s essay — which, if you haven’t already read it, you should take a break from my piece and read — is him being dumbfounded at some individual Trumper’s insane pronouncements on this or that issue, such as “most socialists are cannibals,” only to find out that dozens of the Trump cultists he interviews believe the same thing.
Like most cults, they have their own vocabulary and tropes. One enthusiastic Trump cult follower took a break from posing in front of a mirror in a Trump mask (proclaiming “I’m him!” and giggling in glee) to raise the mask, drop to his knees, and start sniffing the ground. “Creepy Joe!” another one immediately proclaimed. They knew immediately what the guy was doing. Many, many grandfathers like to bury their faces in the hair of their grandchildren and make snorting sounds. It makes the children giggle. Joe Biden has been known to take it a step further and nuzzle the hair of grown women — not a great choice to make. But in the hate- and Trump-maddened minds of the Trump cultists, Biden telegraphs his actual intentions every time he does, well, anything — he is, they claim, a “child sniffer” who likes to…you know, I don’t even want to complete that sentence. You and I know that Biden is a doting old grandpa who took too long to realize that his hugging and nuzzling behaviors were sometimes inappropriate, and that’s it (regardless of what lies a former staffer tried to spin about him). He isn’t the child-mauling savage the Trumpers paint him as being. But that’s only one tiny aspect of the barking mad construct of lies and bullshit the cultists occupy.
According to them, the entire purpose of the Democratic Party is to cover for a massive child-trafficking operation that operates on a worldwide basis. Think “Pizzagate” with as many exponential numbers behind it as you care to throw. Doesn’t matter how stupid the theory is, or how thoroughly it’s been debunked. The act of debunking it actually proves its viability, because in their minds, 2 + 2 = HA HA I HAVE YOU NOW, STUPID LIBTARDS.
But there’s more. This is where the religious context of the Trump cult becomes apparent. Trump is The Chosen One, choses either in spite of his worldly flaws or because of them, whichever narrative works. In contrast, Democrats and liberals are either demonic or actual demons themselves. Those demons inspire and direct the rest of us Satan-worshipping lot — directing armies of “illegal aliens” to pillage towns in the heartland, helping those same “aliens” the polls to illegally vote Democrats into ofiice, you name it. “They eat the children,” one woman shudderingly proclaims. Heads nod all around her.
Of course, the head demons in the Democratic/liberal conspiracy to overrun society and institute a socialist Hell on Earth are, of course, Bill and Hillary Clinton. Surprised? Me neither. Both of them are apparently demons in human form. They have mystical powers, including the ability to force patriotic Americans to commit suicide without warning — a phenomenon they call “Arkan-cide.” One woman, who credits Trump and God for helping her start a cetering business, confides to Sharlet:
They say that the Clintons may have suicided my uncle [a prominent conservative lawyer who died at a restaurant, choking on steak]. They say it didn’t make sense.
Well, you have to admit that forced suicide by demonic retired politicians is the only sensible answer to that question.
As Pastor Sean, a fixture at Trump rallies, grunts to Sharlet:
Secret murders everywhere. Pedophiles and evil.
Sean, who says he became a Trump convert after he learned he was a victim of “Satanic ritual abuse,” says that the biggest enablers of demonic liberals is the “liberal media.” CNN, MSNBC, perhaps even Fox News, all are aligned against Trump. Nothing they say can be trusted. It’s the same with the entertainment companies: Disney and Universal practice mind control techniques with their movies and TV shows. The knowledge they have, Sean says, is passed along to one another on message boards and through social media. If you didn’t get the information from Dave the Trump Warrior on his Ning page, then it isn’t real.
There’s so much more, I’m not even going to try to summarize it all. Racism, misogyny, bigotry of all kinds is both proclaimed from the rooftops and treated as a joke. QAnon is the same — simultaneously a joke to use to laugh at the left, and the holy receptacle of sacred truth. So much more.
This helps explain why Trump cultists are so rabidly against taking the most basic precautions against COVID-19. Trump says the virus is a hoax, so it’s a hoax. Wife, husband, child, grandparent die from the virus? It’s a Democratic plot to woo you away from the One Absolute Truth. Democrats want you to wear a mask so you’ll die. They want to forbid you from meeting with your fellow Trumpers at your favorite gathering places. Why? To divide and demoralize the true believers.
One idiot, the former general manager of a water park in Wisconsin, said he wouldn’t wear a mask because the “phantom virus” has never killed anyone, his area of the state has been virus-free since May, mandating mask wearing will lead to women being forced to wear hijabs, and, finally, a mask is the Mark of the Beast. Yowsah. He is the former general manager of the water park because after he said this in an email to the county supervisors, he was fired.
Ask conservative Naval War College Professor Tom Nichols. He wrote an op-ed for USA Today, where he noted:
…I literally wrote the book over three years ago on why so many Americans think they’re smarter than experts. What I did not expect is that this resolute and childish opposition to expertise would be hijacked by the president of the United States and an entire American political party, and then turned into a suicide cult.
He doesn’t blame Trump entirely. Instead, he wrote,
There is no one more responsible for this particular moment than President Donald Trump, but all he has done is play to a gallery whose seats were already full by the time he ran for office. An entire claque of enablers joined in, knowing there was plenty of money to be made feeding this self-centered, anti-social nihilism. When the pandemic arrived, these enablers in the conservative media and among the cowardly Republican political class took their cues — masks, no masks, closing, opening — from Trump, whose statements for months were a fusillade of nonsense that reflected only his own pouty anger that Mother Nature had the sheer brass to mess up his presidential grift.
I wrote about this a few days ago, saying that Trump and his suicide cult were the end product of 70 years of Republicans incessantly pushing the party ever further to the right. When a far-right fringe (anti-Communists, diehard Confederates, Tea Party denizens) forms, they shift over to join them, making the former fringe the mainstream. Then another, even more hardline and demented fringe forms. Now we have the Trump/QAnon fringe, which is rapidly becoming the GOP’s mainstream.
They — the Trump/QAnon fringe and the GOP that is running to embrace them — are a death cult. But they won’t die alone. Nichols wrote:
This is not Jonestown or Heaven’s Gate, whose cult members fled society to go and die together. This is worse. This is an attempt to create a Jonestown in every American city and town and then invite the rest of us over for a cool drink.
This leads us to the reason I wrote this article.
Don’t waste your time on trying to convince the Trump humpers to see reason. They will not. They are members of a death cult, by choice. Facts don’t faze them. Rational arguments go right over their heads. Nothing you can say fits the insane construct of lies, lunatic conspiracy theories, and burning garbage that makes up their world view. You can’t even appeal to the lives and safety of their families. The virus, or the free-falling economy, or the stormtroopers in the streets can’t hurt them or their people. Only demonic libtard Democrats can do that. And their job is to either dominate us, kill us, or die while taking as many of us with them as possible.
A Jonestown in every city, town and village. We can’t argue them out of that. We can only stop them.
