The Cult of Trump





Are fundamentalist Christians a dangerous religious cult? Possibly. The controversial author and religious scholar Reza Aslan posits that President Donald Trump has much of his evangelical fan-base believing that he's somehow been anointed by God to become President. Nevermind the Russian election scandal, his affairs with porn stars and unwarranted sexual acts towards women, or his inability to remember even a single Bible verse when asked. Evangelical Christians are abandoning their core moral beliefs to follow, as Reza suggests, someone who exhibits every trademark of a cult leader. And that should terrify anyone on either side of the political spectrum

Re: The Cult of Trump


Right wingers in general have more in common with a cult than they do a political ideology, far as I can see.

What Trump's popularity does, is confirm the fact that they don't actually stand for anything at all anymore (if they ever did). They just want Republicans in power, and they'll sell their country, and their own interests down the river in a heartbeat, if that's what it takes to make it happen.

Re: The Cult of Trump


Politically, more can be accomplished by identifying them as a "political movement", than labeling them as a cult, imo.

Re: The Cult of Trump


I don't think political correctness has, or is likely to accomplish much of anything either.

I don't use the term lightly. Just honestly.

We tried calling them a movement when they dressed themselves up as the Tea Party.

It isn't a movement and it isn't political. It is entirely based on fear and negativity towards "them", "others".

What "popularity" is that?

According to lefties, Trump is hated all over, and will soon be run out of Washington.

Re: The Cult of Trump


Sisl, there are about 30% of voters who bought Trump's poison and switched from being tea baggers to being members of a cult. Now, they would drink poisoned Koolaide if Trump told them to.
Saddest thing about them, most embrace Trump because they want to believe he will 'Whiten' our population back.

According to cult-tards, he can do no wrong.
