Commentary: There are five definitive warning signs of a cult. 1. The leader is always right. 2. Criticism of the leader is characterized as “persecution.” 3. No matter how harmful, the leader’s behavior is justified. (Pay close attention to this one.) 4. Adherents are obsessed with the leader. 5. The leader has the exclusive franchise on “truth.”
As hard as it is to believe, gay Trumpsters are a real thing. You probably even know one or two, talked to them at a gay bar, or even slept with one (or two or more). Gay members of Cult45 are not unlike straight ones. Their allegiance is solid and unwavering. They have drunk the orange Kool-Aid. They are in a cult!
In the cult, to criticize the president is to persecute him. When Trump tweets, “There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have,” they believe him. Trumpsters have short memories.
Donald Trump has attacked the Constitution, the free press, the FBI, the military, Congress and the intelligence agencies. Crickets from the cult.
More recently, Trump has used the power of his office to extort a foreign country and made efforts to cover it up. Accusations of abusing his office for personal gain, bribery, extortion, and obstruction of justice will likely be levied against the sitting president.
Those charges finally convinced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that it was time to initiate impeachment hearings against Donald Trump. That announcement was enough to send gay cult members over the edge, a short trip for many. We found this particular tirade on Facebook from a gay Trumpster to be representative of many in the cult.
A typical Trumpster rant
“If Trump and Trump Jr. swapped with Joe and Hunter Biden. Trump would be in jail or murdered. I seriously can’t believe you fucking retards think Trump will be impeached. Biden and Hillary need to get locked up and sued!!!! Also the Obamas!!!! No one should leave a government job super fucking wealthy!!! You people are complete and utter asinine trash. Trump loves this country. RECORD LOW UNEMPLOYMENT FOR LATINOS, BLACKS, ASIANS, AND WOMAN IN THE WORKPLACE. THE FIRST PRESIDENT EVER TO OPENLY SUPPORT GAYS. For me the economy and security are very important to me he’s doing it. Passed right to try! Lowering drug prices! Helping Vets with vet choice so they don’t kill themselves! Creating a strong border to end drug smuggling and human trafficking you sick fucks!!!!! People are dying and becoming homeless because you want to be PC with NO BORDER!!! He donates his presidential salary to various causes in the US. You are mentally f*cking ill. Democrats are the party of racism and division, open borders, drugs pouring in, endless human trafficking and killing unbabies. Destroying our economy putting more and more people on the tits of the welfare system. The only good thing going for them is wanting to become green but only because they want to engulf the Green Party but with an approach so radical we’ll all lose our fucking cars and we’ll be waiting in a bread line!!! I don’t care if I end up with one friend on Facebook I don’t want stupid asinine people that are mentally retarded in an undiagnosable way for friends please delete. If you seriously think voting for a socialist is smart look at every other socialist nation. It’s garbage. Look at Venezuela they promised all this bullshit, took away their guns and now they are getting run over by tanks. Waiting for breadcrumbs and the most pathetic run-down nation when they used to be one of the wealthiest. People who constantly talk about being broke, race and being apart of a stupid group then being an American votes democrat. Sad!!! End rant while driving!”
Loyal to the end
Like their leader, the Trump cult has become experts at deflection, blame and changing the subject. If you have ever gotten into a discussion with a Trumpster, more than likely several of these arguments have been used to make their point.
The quotation listed above covers all five components of a cult follower. Poor Trump is being persecuted and would be jailed or murdered had he done what he is accusing Biden of doing.
Seldom can a Trump supporter defend him without evoking the names of Clinton or Obama. That’s their reliable stand-by. Calling the opposition names is another. Their leader taught them well. And of course rambling on about a million non-related topics is a pre-requisite of a Trump supporter.
The realization that their leader has been caught and admitted to what are clearly impeachable offenses is surely upsetting to the Cult45. We do not expect them to admit that their leader is a fraud and is a criminal; cults do not work that way. Long after Trump has been impeached and removed from office or has resigned, they will still be lamenting how he was a victim of the media and was treated unfairly
