I know you guys already knew this, but check this bit of political calculation out:
“Of all the possible theological dog-whistles to his evangelical base, this is the biggest,” she continued. “Trump is reminding them that he is carrying out God’s will to these Last Days. They’ve been waiting for this, praying for this. They want war in the Middle East. The Battle of Armageddon, at which time Jesus Christ will return to the Earth and vanquish all God’s enemies.”
Let me repeat: They WANT war in the Middle East! (snarkon)Nice, “down home” folks”.(/snarkon)
So insane people who want war and for everyone who doesn’t believe what they the believe (with no visible means of support) to die during qa war in the age of nukes and go to Hell are one our POTUS’ most coveted voting groups (along with the wealthy and the corporations). (snarkon)GOOD TIMES!(/snarkon)
Oh well, at least we’re not talking about torture, any more, but this is a real “come to Jesus” moment.
