Fanning the Flames

Too bad Trump’s cult loves their Dear Leader more than America.

They believe in his Big Lie over every state certification board, every poll worker, every recount, every court, and every elector.

This blind acceptance and obedience fits the definition of a cult. They attacked our Capitol, believing they were following Dear Leader’s orders.

All that matters to these terrorists and their sympathizers is they hate the same people, those of us who know Trump is a dangerous liar.

And they are foaming at the mouth for more insurrection. Another Fourth Reich style rally and possible Putsch are in the works for September 18th.

Washington (CNN) Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said Monday evening that law enforcement needs to take the upcoming right-wing rally in support of jailed January 6 rioters "very seriously" as concerns mount about more potential violence on Capitol Hill.

Law enforcement members in Washington are steeling themselves against possible unrest at the "Justice for J6" rally -- planned for September 18 -- which aims to support the insurrectionists charged in the riot.

Homeland Security Intelligence chief John Cohen told CNN last month that online extremist rhetoric is strikingly similar to the buildup to the January 6 attack, with increasing calls for violence linked to conspiracy theories and false narratives.

Still, McCabe, who served as the FBI's deputy director from 2016 to 2018 including a period as acting director, said Monday that law enforcement has "a few factors leaning in their favor" this time. "You don't have a sitting President actively fanning the flames and trying to get people to attend the rally," he said.

Sorry Andy. They have an ex-president fanning the flames. He is still their Dear Leader, and he's still pouring gas on his fire.

Trump recently mixed in more hate and blame with his Big LIE.

Just last week he told his new “spokesperson” and fellow serial liar Liz Herrington "We had it perfectly -- perfectly -- in control. We could have taken our time. It was after I got out with a Rigged Election, as soon as I got out [the Taliban] started taking over. Those 13 incredible people would be alive today."

Why do Trump True Believers eat that crap up so willingly? Is it the hate? 

I see no other reason for rejecting truth to this dangerous degree. This radical cult is attacking our country's democratic process, voting rights, and elections as well as the truth.

All on the word of Donald Trump.

No shame. No decency. No honor.

Just loyalty to the Big Lie of "Honest" Donald Frickin Trump. No wonder so many brainwashed dupes think wearing masks and vaccinations do not mitigate a pandemic. Many still think covid is a hoax.

Only hate can explain their brainwashing, fascist demonizing, scapegoating, and hate mongering like, "Leftists hate America", and every damn thing they say about socialism and Critical Race Theory.

This cult of lies and hate is what is really tearing our country apart.

It took six months after being legally voted out of office for the big jerk to finally recommend getting vaccinated.

His cult didn't like being told that, either.

How many cultists will continue to embrace his Big Lie, even if after he finally recants the most dangerous lie known to the republic?

Trump may back off on his Big Lie if he starts to feel the heat of justice closing in. He’ll probably try to weasel his way out by saying, “That’s what people were saying”.

He’d better start rehearsing.

He and Lindsay Graham are under investigation for interfering with the Georgia election.

This is exactly what he said.

"Just find me 11,780 votes."

"Just say the election was corrupt, and leave the rest to me."

They are criminals and enemies of democracy. Period.

Some of us thought the Trump cult fever would break once he was thoroughly defeated in 2020, but his cultists are more rabid in their loyalty to the Liar, Cheat, and Fraud than ever before.

What this has shown me is that within any given population, there will always be people who are drawn to authoritarian figures who are willing to lie to them to stay in power.

The hardest thing for me to accept is that so many of my fellow Americans are eager to destroy our republic on such an unworthy man.

The most frightening aspect of the entire radical Right cult's debacle is the possibility that Trump will not face justice.

If that's the case, our Constitutional republic is by definition terminated. In fact his incitement of a mob to overturn an election will forever erase our history of peaceful transition of power.

America has NOT been made great again. Trump accomplished the polar opposite. He and his party have degraded and suffocated our democratic republic with hate, lies and insurrection. They will suppress voter rights, deny any loss, and nullify any election they lose.

This is the dark tyranny that awaits America.

Trump needed to not only lose, but to be prosecuted, punished, humiliated, dishonored, and totally repudiated.

Lock him up. It's the ONLY way to save the country.

Dave, that's what I hope for. But I'm not sure I'll see it happen.
