For many the US is all about the embrace of values such as fairness and equality. What is also truly weird is that those on the religious right-wing strive to destroy it all as they stand upon that platform of fairness and equality.
For them, a return to an era of pre-New Deal and a pre-progressive-era is a wet dream. Much has been enabled by the rise of the cult of Trump. It opened a door. Trump’s allies and enablers support, justify, and happily explain away his divisive rhetoric and harmful policies as jolly fine stuff. If indeed there is going to be open and transparent criticism of it all, then all we really need to do is to quote what they say.
Quite a lot of it is utterly bizarre, delusional, and completely bereft of any connection with reality. Here are samples from the last 7 days.
What was weird during the last 7 days?
The Cult of Trump are quite literally worshiping him …
- Michele Bachmann: Trump Deserves Prayer and Support Because He’s ‘The Most Biblical President’ Ever … “Bachmann said. “He is, without a doubt, the most biblical president I have ever seen. I’m going to repeat that: he is the most biblical president I have ever seen in what he does. His actions are remarkable and I would ask the audience to please pray for him continually. We have never seen a president under more attack, more undeserved attack, but I think it’s because, again, of the day that we live in, the deception that we live in, and the demonic presence of so many evil things in our society,”

- Paula White declares that President Trump’s reshaping of the federal courts through his appointment of right-wing judges has been “supernatural.”
- Barry Faber proudly declares his unrelenting support for President Trump: “Trump is my boy! Trump got to become my boy by my satisfying myself that his accomplishments border on the politically supernatural.”
- Dave Janda has not seen any chemtrails since July 4, which leads him to believe that Trump has finally “taken control of the skies” and outlawed them.
Pedophelia claims that have zero evidence…
- Chris McDonald: Tom Hanks’ Mr. Rogers Movie Is ‘A Pedophile Signal’ …”McDonald, who frequently hosts Republican Rep. Phil Roe of Tennessee on his program, claimed that Hanks has been “named in many, many pedophile-related tweets, pedophile-related call-outs,” and asserted that the new Mr. Rogers film is really a pedophile “code.””

This is the self-appointed prophet of God who has a track record of being 100% wrong 100% of the time. He is a regular and pops up with weird stuff week after week. To verify his degree of ego and delusion, here is his latest offering …
- Mark Taylor Says Those Who Mock Him Are Putting Their Life in Their Own Hands …
- “I want to put this warning out,” Taylor said. “God says specifically in his word, ‘Do not touch my anointed, but especially my prophets.’” Taylor said that in biblical times, if someone attacked a prophet, it was only heard by those within earshot, whereas today, those who criticize prophets like him do so via massive platforms like Twitter or Facebook, where their heretical attacks can reach a global audience. “God’s going to hold them accountable,”
