What’s this in the news? Did I just see Trump lied and lashed out in hate again? Imagine that.
Con-servative Trumpists are fanatical members of the Cult of Rightwing Authoritarian Personalities. They don't care how much their Dear Leader lies and hates. The Republican Party shows its utter lack of values, decency and honesty by defending their leader, and explaining his vile behavior away. You see, they are busy joining Trump in rubbing their hands over the prospect of stripping health care from millions while cutting taxes for the rich.
In other words, con-servative "Value$".
And greed isn’t their only “value”. Along with sheer avarice, they show relentless rapacity in privatizing public services like schools and Social Security, taking from the commons, and appropriating natural resources that should belong to the unfortunate people who survive, or are born after, our New Dark Ages. They are the true “takers”. Make no mistake. They will take it all, if allowed.
They will back Trump to the bitter end, whatever form that takes. Why? Because of the common enemy. And that enemy is not Russia. It is not Putin. In fact, con-servatives have openly thanked Putin and Russia! That's how whacked out their cult is.
Note that Putin and Russia are NEVER demonized by the American Right.
This tells us who they see as the real enemy.
Liberals are the enemy. Those who sanely question and oppose the party of authoritarians are the enemy.
Putin is their ally. Any mention of Russian interference in the election is shouted down by con-servatives.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the close election counts in swing states were rigged by their cult loyalists. We may never know, especially while the Great American Tragedy is unfolding. We do know Putin was a key player in their coup over our democracy.
Maybe when evidence is uncovered that Trump owes Russia money, or had them launder funds for Trump businesses, a few Republicans may see the need to do something. Not out of a sense for justice, mind you, but selfish political ends.
Maybe. Maybe not.
The other primary reason the cult unites behind Trump is because he hates, or is perceived to hate, the same people con-servatives hate. Cons have hated, accused, blamed, demonized, and attacked liberals since before the Soviet Union existed. It is what they do. Religious and racial minorities have always been the targets of their resentments. Their large contingent of racist con-servatives have roots that go back to the times when they were pro-slavery, pro-Jim Crow, the Klan, and up to today’s vote suppression for minorities.
And their “value$” will never change. Taking food stamps from the poor, cutting people off Medicaid, deregulating Wall Street, removing environmental regulations, gutting worker safety rules, crushing unions, suppressing living wages, wars of aggression, torture, and brutal law enforcement all spring from the same source: Con-servatism.
It is who they are. Authoritarians will not change, and they will not recognize facts or accept reason. We know this is true because they prove it all the time. Their god is Greed. Unlimited power and wealth are their goals.
Anyone who supports Constitutional taxation, regulation of commerce, and provision for the general welfare will be viciously attacked. They are at the core, an anti-American aristocracy of elites, with their duped authoritarian follower foot soldiers blaming, accusing, and demonizing all those who oppose their masters' agenda.
This is the Cult of Rightwing Authoritarian Personalities that has taken over the nation by hook and by crook.
It’s time for the people to wake up and cut the C.R.A.P. out of our government, or they will most certainly be the ones dumped upon when the C.R.A.P. hits the fan.
