Is anti-Trumpism a cult?
« on: October 09, 2016, 03:39:12 am »
That so-called "liberal" Democrats routinely and hypocritically put partisanship before principle -- i.e., criticizing certain policies when advanced by Republican politicians, then defending, or at least making tortured excuses for, those very same policies when advanced by Democratic politicians -- is hardly a news flash.

It's been common knowledge ever since Obama packed his administration with Wall Street insiders and -- with assistance from a Democratic-controlled House and Senate -- signed into law the largest war budget in U.S. history, all while his "anti"-war/"anti"-Wall Street supporters winked and looked the other way.

But this year is different. Never have I seen political schizophrenia reach this level of insanity. Hillary Clinton is every bit as pro-war, pro-police state and pro-Wall Street as George W. Bush ever was, yet the very same leftists who, just eight years ago, were waxing hysterical about how evil and corrupt Bush was are now instructing anyone stupid enough to listen to vote for Hilldog.

The seething hatred of Donald Trump that is obviously driving this insanity has gotten so ridiculously extreme that it's even caught the attention of progressives like Stephen Lendman:


Raging Anti-Trumpism

By Stephen Lendman

It seems like the whole universe opposes him with an unprecedented daily blizzard of anti-Trump articles, commentaries and editorials in US print media and what passes in America for television news – stuff no respectable independent news director would allow on air.

Make no mistake. He’s not above reproach, not by a long shot. He didn’t get to be a billionaire by being a good guy. He’s unaccountable for lots of unsavory baggage, what it takes to become a corporate tycoon. Maybe he’s not all bad.

His anti-establishment sounding rhetoric rattles bipartisan power brokers, especially Wall Street, war-profiteers and other corporate interests wanting no changes from current policies – not even around the edges, the most to be hoped for from a Trump presidency if elected.

Giving overwhelming opposition from powerful interests and media scoundrels, it’s hard imagining him having any chance to succeed Obama.

He calls things rigged against him. America’s sordid history of election rigging shows he’s right, today with electronic ease and other dirty tricks.

Clinton was chosen to succeed Obama last year before campaigning began. Trump’s nomination defied predictions. Long knives emerged to stop him straightaway after announcing he’d seek the GOP nomination last year. They continue their daily dirty work, especially after he got it.




I, for one, am convinced that "anti-Trumpism" has become an outright cult, because it seems there isn't anything that anti-Trumpers wouldn't do -- no matter how diabolical, and no matter how antithetical to everything they claim to stand for -- as long as it kept Trump out of office.

If you agree, please share any supportive examples you have.

The cartoonish “stop Trump” MSM rhetoric has been going on for at least 6 months now. Pounded into the heads of the remaining teevee watchers over and over. Meanwhile, Hillary supporters consist of officials, ex-officials, wall street, media moguls, and globalists. They struggle to find a reason for her to be in the presidency and have to admit that they are championing a criminal. A criminal that is 100% sold out to their agenda. The $5,000/plate Hillary fundraiser in London that violates US federal law somehow gets glazed over even on this forum.

This has revealed glimpses into who actually controls the average American's quality of life. When “republicans” announce support for the supposed other side, this reveals a huge problem with what were led to believe about a 2 party system.

The Trump train also has its cultish aspects, IMO. It's what naturally happens when bandwagons are invoked. And it remains to be seen whether the Donald is genuine, or merely placed there to throw the “election” to a world class soulless being. A confederate or shill in a colossal magic trick. His uncharacteristic milquetoast performance at the first debate is concerning. Protecting Hillary's feelings is irrelevant compared to the future of an entire nation.

The non-brainwashed see him as the lesser evil.  Trump's rhetoric of “America First” and “Make America Great Again” is seen as the last chance to remotely undo the destructive social programming that we have all been subject to for the past 50 years. The best assessment I've seen is that “Trump is disruptive. We desperately NEED disruption right now.”
The number one cause of all human poverty, misery, and death is not global warming. It’s GLOBAL LYING.

nice find ... a really accurate review
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
