Time to Permanently Freeze out Trump Die-hards from our lives as ‘Unfit’

VT backs Trump on his claims of a rigged election.  He may well have gotten as few as 45 million votes in 2020.  This photo doesn’t lie…

Small crowds then, small crowds now, morons and reprobates and now this article from the Atlantic that tell us that Trump die-hards will never be able to deal with reality or live among decent people.

Atlantic: President-elect Joe Biden made national unity a centerpiece of his campaign, and no patriotic American who wants to repair the damage of the Donald Trump years can argue with such a noble call.

The election is over, and we can now undertake the tasks Trump neglected, including fighting the coronavirus pandemic and restoring our alliances.

But millions of Americans are not ready to declare that bygones are bygones and engage the loyal Trump supporters they might still find among their neighbors, friends, or families.

They are not wrong to feel this way.

 

That may sound like a profoundly un-civic, even un-American, stance. After all, Democrats, independents, and what’s left of the last few sensible Republicans should not stop trying to solve problems together.

To cease all political communication would not only be foolish, but our system of government does not allow it.

Even in the minority, a party can help or hinder the process of governing.

Nonetheless, ordinary people worn out by the dramas and lies of the past four years have a right to refuse to take Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters seriously.

To reject further debate with people whose views are completely incoherent is not only understandable, but sensible.

I am talking about the people who are giving Trump their full-throated support to the very end, even as he mulls a military coup; the people who buy weird paintings of Trump crossing the Delaware, or who believe that Trump is an agent of Jesus Christ, or who think that Trump is fighting a blood-drinking ring of pedophiles.

These supporters have gone far beyond political loyalty and have succumbed to a kind of mass delusion. It is not possible to engage them. Indeed, to argue with them is to legitimize their beliefs, which itself is unhealthy for our democracy.  read more…

  1. Senaca, Trumpers are actually worse than if Elvis’ corpse was DNA tested on every major tv channel… and they still believed him alive.

    Tommy A’s description gets close to how I’ve described Trumptards* for a while…

    They’re really trying to fulfill the infamous, (forged) “We shall unleash the nihilists.”

    * Pronounced “turd” like dotard.

  2. You could make the same argument in favor of the Manson family. And just like Charles Manson, Trump is a psychotic, psychopathic mass murderer. The difference is that Trump holds a political office that’s been imbued with illegitimate, unaccountable political power; an office from which he could start a nuclear war and bring an end to the world as we know it. In fact it was Trump’s bellicose “foreign policy” and nuclear brinkmanship that spurred the “Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists” to move the hands of the “doomsday clock” closer to “midnight” than EVER BEFORE. Support for Trump is support for planetary extinction; it really is that bad.

  3. “If we’ve learned one thing about ‘Trumpism,’ it is that there is no such thing as ‘Trumpism.’ No content anchors it; no program or policy comes from it. No motivating ideology stands behind it, unless we think of general grievance and a hatred of cultural and intellectual elites as an ‘idea.'” That pretty much says it all.

    This is a personality cult. These folks are ready to jump off the cliff right along with Trump, although he is never going to jump off any cliff, especially not for them. Sheldon Adelson will spirit him off to some beach in Israel or Macao where he can molest little boys and girls to his heart’s content. He will be in Heaven until he goes to Hell.

    • If you ask me, being confined to Herzliya beach IS hell. They put them all together in that shithole so they get a sense and a jumpstart on how to cope with the permanent one.
