If nothing else, Trump and MAGA have provided us with a textbook-definition of "cult".




When mere months ago trump got his rally crowds to boo at the mention of “little rocket man” and now gets them to cheer for the very same guy, it’s super hard to make the case this isn’t a cult.





MAGAs are praising Communist dictators, denouncing Democracy, supporting the pardoning of criminals, and ignoring children being rounded up by the government and put in camps. #Cult45

1. Correction: _Republicans_ provided it...

Republicans -- and conservatives in particular -- spent decades building the cult, providing direction and "spiritual guidance" for petty bigotries and pet peeves in order to build a shared sense of community, named a reliable "enemy" as the root of all problems, drove out apostates, and denounced any outside source of information as the lies of The Enemy.

They built the cult, Trump merely delights the True Believers, so they picked him to lead it.

And it's not as if the others are doing anything about it, so they're members too.

3. And as a cult...or "true believers"

Their minds will NEVER be changed! So why waste our energy reaching out to them??


I had one such person, a friend from years ago, say that Trump has accomplished more in Singapore than Obama had ever hoped for!!! That's the type of nonsense we're up against!!

4. If Don suggested they all come to the White House and drink poison Kool-Aid, they'd be right there.

5. Yes, just like good Jim Jonesers

And they’d probably blame Obama or Hilary for making them do it as they took their dying gulps.
