Thank you to everyone for educating me on this topic.  Your posts where very detailed and informative.  I really thought the Trump Cult was just a phrase used by posters. Wow,  was I misinformed.  Thank you again... Nancy

The irrefutable fact is that trump, his followers and supporters are abnormal.

Not all the way to Charles Manson abnormal.

But closer to where Manson was than the majority of typical and average honest, honorable, truth-telling patriotic American Citizens.

 

Trump cult members - even after the treasonous and shameful Surrender at Helsinki - still support a proved thorougly dishonest man who has been telling what works out to be a verified average of over seven lies, misstatements and misrepresentations every day since the beginning of his maladministration.

 

trump cult members and trump supporters are quite obviously abnormal as a group.

It is possible that a small percentage could be considered normal - sure - far less than five percent...

He (tRump) is useless on top of the ground - he should be under it - inspiring the cabbages...

There are many signs an individual is a cult member. They include denial, ignoring of facts and logic, and blind devotion to their leader. Another big one is the "us versus them" mindset.  Anyone who’s not a member of the cult is perceived as the enemy. When the enemy criticizes their leader, cult members take it personally and become angry or enraged, as their loyalty to their leader becomes even stronger. Sound familiar?

 

The ultimate example of a successful cult was the Hitler regime. If you watch documentaries of Germany in the 1930s, he was incredibly popular, as the population was hysterically devoted to him (sound familiar?). They believed everything he said at his rallies, cheering every lie coming out of his mouth (sound familiar?). Hitler was going to make Germany great again.

 

Among others, Hitler taught his people the following lessons.

  • Don’t believe the press, believe me
  • Don’t believe law enforcement, believe me
  • Your life will be much better once we get rid of the Jews non-white immigrants

I'd just offer one small amendment to Der Fuhrer's teaching and that of Der Trumper. All the rest is spot-on - here's some additional similarities:

 

Neither Fuhrer or Trumper have any interest in the actual job of governing and instead throw themselves into huge rallies before their cheering supporters.

 

Both have identified small ethnic groups as the cause of all the problems

 

Both threaten War at the drop of a hat.

 

Both use brutal attacks on the helpless to gain more support from their clan.

 

Both refuse to accept any advice that contradicts their personal ideas.

 

Both use their office to enrich themselves.

So much for democracy and American values.


You're right about those cult of hatred members. Attack-attack-attack, in the media, in these boards, in restaurants, in movie theaters, in the streets, outside an office, outside a home, etc. - the "resistance" and the Russian operatives dedicated to dividing our people have pretty clearly laid out your assignments.

AngelEyes, all you have to do is read their posts and they are so brainwashed, it's beyond comprehension for a normal person. 

 

Example:

 

The FBI is a corrupt and their agents are LYING.

 

Reality:

 

Yet, they believe every word coming from a pathological liar in the White House.How is that possible unless you're a cult member?
