Weekly Weird Right-Wing Fundamentalist News: 11Aug19

weird right-wing politics
Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above this week to point out that … “Long before 45 disgraced the Oval Office, republicans in congress blocked sensible gun legislation on many occasions. They have been doing the bidding of the NRA for decades

When considering the weird news items I come across, I’m often tempted to think “Nobody could possibly be that stupid, it just must all be satire or a joke“, and then up pop items from people who time after time prove me to be quite wrong about that.

I guess I do need to come to terms with the observation that there really are people who are daft enough to think that the earth is flat and that Trump is a messiah chosen by God.

What was weird during the last 7 days?

Utterly Absurd Claims …

Verifiably Fraudulent Claims …

This relates to a self-appointed prophet, who claims that God told him that Trump would win the 2016 election and that God had especially chosen Trump.

  • Tom Horn Rewrites Prophetic History … “Tom Horn, who is the CEO of both Skywatch and the Defender Publishing Group, which published Taylor’s book, claimed that they were so impressed with Taylor’s prophetic gifts that they published his book before the 2016 election …“We published this before the 2016 election,” Horn said. “So what a step of faith we took.”

It is easy to check this. It was actually published long after the election in July 2017

In fact, on May 17, 2017, Skywatch released a trailer for Taylor’s book that specifically said it would be released on July 4th of that year, nearly eight months after the election.

This is a classical scam – claim a successful prophecy was predicted prior to an event, but was actually made long after the event.

Equality is Evil …

  • David Barton warns that …. “the Equality Act is probably the greatest assault on Constitutional liberties and religious liberty in the history of the nation.

Promotion of Intolerance and Hatred…

Mass Shooting: Right-wing “Theories” and “solutions” …

Head spinning stuff …

What other weird stuff happened?

A great deal. It is the usual stream of intolerance, abuse, corruption, and bizarre claims …
