Wingnut Weekly – 15 Dec 2019

Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above this past week to point out … “Following the Pensacola shooting, Trump once again defended the despotic murderer, MBS, rather than assigning any blame of terrorism to Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of 15 of the 9/11 terrorists.“

When exposed to the utterly bizarre claims that emanate from that rather distinct blend of religious fundamentalism with right-wing politics you do have to wonder if it is real. Do those making these claims actually believe what they are saying, or are they simply pandering to the crowd?

Examples this week includes claims such as …

  • Trump really created the Space Farce Force because a giant asteroid is heading our way as predicted by the bible
  • Criticism of Melania’s choice of Christmas decorations is … “an attack against our church and against our Lord
  • The reason Impeachment is happening is because of Women speaking out in public
  • Trump Critics are not human
  • etc…

It might be tempting to think that those spewing such nonsense are all people simply running a con and that they don’t actually believe any of this. That is probably true for some. I very strongly lean towards the conclusion that Jim Bakker falls into that camp. For others however, I suspect sincerity prevails. For those that are sincere, you can also be certain that they are indeed sincerely wrong.

How can you know this?

They never cite anything and have exactly zero evidence.

Wingnut proclamations from the last 7 days

Here for your enjoyment is this week’s selection of wingnut gems. It has all been mined from the stream of befuddled right-wing / religious proclamations …

The Cult of Trump ..

Impeachment …

… and of course …

  • Mark Levin is already demanding that “the next president who’s a Democrat must be impeached.”

Conspiracies ..

  • Dave Daubenmire is an anti-vaxxer and very proud that his grandchildren have not been vaccinated.

Demons & Witches …

  • Lance Wallnau thinks that he knows what is responsible for the New England Patriots’ struggles: “Ever since the news went public that Tom Brady’s wife practices witchcraft and incantations to empower her husbands wins, I believe the tide has turned.
  • Mark Taylor: Some Trump Critics Are so Demon-Possessed That ‘They’re Not Even Human Anymore’
  • Dave Daubenmire knows that the Bible says that all who believe in Jesus possess the power to cast out devils, and he wants to know why Christians aren’t putting that power to use by casting the “lying spirits” out of Rep. Jerry Nadler and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Rick Wiles corner …

This feels a bit like somebody building up to going postal.

Fan Clubs …

The Greta Fan club …

The New York Times Fan Club …

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 …
