Wingnut Weekly – 20 Oct 2019

wingnut weekly rob rogers
Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above during this past week to make this observation…
It is hard to believe we live in a country whose president cages children and frees terrorists. Not to mention we now abandon our allies.

One rather startling wingnut characteristic is a willingness to knowingly and deliberately lie in order to manipulate people. We have multiple examples of this from the past week. Paula White was claiming that unless you vote for Trump then the alternative is that Bibles will be banned and that the laws are already in place in some states. Tim Wildmon makes a similar claim with the assertion is that the goal is for every Christian Church is to be shutdown.

The truth is that evangelical Christianity is indeed under threat. The enemy however is not the Democrats, most of them are also Christian. Nor is it some nefarious progressive plot. Instead the enemy they face is themselves. Screaming hypocrisy, gross intolerance, deep dishonesty and moral bankruptcy is the instrument of their own demise and decline.

If you doubt that this is so, then check the latest numbers from Pew this past week. Belief is in rapid decline and the Nones are rapidly rising in number. The big headline in 2015 was the decline of Christianity from from 78.4% to 70.6% and the increase of Nones to 22.3%. This latest update reveals a further dramatic drop of Christianity to 65% along with a corresponding rise of the Nones to 26%.

Wingnut proclamations from the last 7 days

Here is this week’s select of gems …

The Cult of Trump …

Dancing on the grave of Elijah Cummings …

Impeachment “Experts”…

Free and Fair Election “Experts” …

  • Josh Bernstein says that anyone who votes for the Democratic candidate in 2020 should have their citizenship revoked

Homophobia on Steroids …

  • Tim Wildmon says that … “the secular progressives in this country will not be satisfied until they close down every Christian church in America and any organization that does not bow their knee to homosexuality.
  • Franklin Graham declares that he will never … “bow down at the altar of the LGBTQ agenda nor worship their rainbow pride flag.
  • On Breitbart’s nighttime radio program, Ann Coulter predicted that if Sen. Elizabeth Warren is elected president in 2020, … “suddenly she’d forget all about the Wall Street stuff, and it would just be pedal to the metal on transgenders.
  • Alex McFarland is calling on … “Christian educators everywhere to courageously stand against the darkness of this hour and for the truth of God’s Word. Homosexuality is a sin. Trandgenderism is false. Abortion is murder.
    • None of what he claims is factual. What is a fact is his intolerance and homophobia.

Climate “Experts” …

For some, reality is a foreign unexplored land …

  • Liz Crokin is convinced that Rachel Maddow is wearing a medical boot not to heal from an ankle injury but to hide the tracking monitor placed on her after being arrested for being “a deep state puppet.”
  • Rick Wiles claims that ISIS was nothing more than a mercenary army made up of “genetically modified” soldiers and was created by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

Religious Grifter gets another Religious Grifter to help out …

  • Paula White tells Christians that they “are mandated by God” to send thousands of dollars to help Jim Bakker build a new TV studio, asserting that their donations will be counted by “a Department of Treasury in Heaven” and will influence their eternal reward.

… and she was really putting the emotional blackmail squeeze on …

  • Paula White says that even if you are down to your last meal, God expects you to donate money to help Jim Bakker build his new TV studio. And know that if you don’t, your dreams will die.

Mark Taylor …

What else came out of the Wingnut fantasy land?

Lots of other stuff. 

As always, it is an endless stream. Some of it is sad, some is rather grim, and some is quite frankly hilarious. Here are a few more samples …

Finally, let’s end with by pointing out once again that really good news …

Given the obnoxious intolerant behaviour and gross hypocrisy of many of the religious, is anybody really surprised?
