Trump Cult Members vs Normal People

Message 11 of 17

AngelEyes, cult behavior often ends in tragedy. Look at what happened to Applewhite's Heaven Gates cult members, they killed themselves believing a rocket ship would transport them to another world. The loyal followers of Jones died in Guyana.

 

Hitler's minions led to the deaths of approximately 70 million people in WW II.

Yes I remember and I thought of how crazy they were, just as these people are becoming w/The Donald.
I have liked many Presidents, but never LOVED them to the point every word out of their mouth was a LAW or believed every word they said.

It's like they believe EVERY single word that The Donald spouts out of his vular, lying, disgusting mouth. They don't seem to think for themselves, just what he says. True Cult .

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

The ULTIMATE example of Successful Cults are all the Worlds Organized Religions - without their Centuries Old Trial & Error Methods of perfecting the MEME that only a Chosen View can ultimately achieve eternal life.........................modern Cult Leaders wouldn't already have Hundreds of Millions of other Humans who have been conditioned over a lifetime to believe in things said by a handful of others for which not only isn't there any Credible Proof - Science & Math have disproven them all for Decades.....................but Organized Religions have conditoned entire Generations to Believe in things simply because someone in Authority has said it's so.................................

 

It's a Simple Trick using the conditioning of the carrot & stick - whether it's Pavelov & his Dogs -  The Popes in Rome - Hitler or now Trump

 

It's impossible to seperate the influence of Organized Religions Ability to make people Believe from someone like Trump making them believe - it's the exact same psychological manipulation and they both appeal to Humans Fear of the Unknown.....................................

 

Organized Religion has always done the Conditioning of the Populations and are just waiting until like Today with Trump - they get the right Military/Civilian Leader where they are then willing to let their people be abused by the Next Tyrrant as long as they get something in return - with Trump it's the Political Power to be able to pack the Courts with people who will back Religious Finaticism & force people with a Countries Laws into doing what the Religious Leaders cannot convince them to do from the Pulpit.................................

 

It's very Sadistic but it's happening again right here in our Country Today

AngelEyes, that's what happens when you become a member of a cult. You live in a closed world (an alternate reality) where logic, facts, and the truth become irrelevant. The only thing which matters is what The Supreme Leader says. Denial is a key element of membership.

 

Jones in Guyana, do you think cult members regret following him to that country?

 

Applewhite - Heave's Gate Cult where they committed suicide, believing a rocket ship would then transport them to another world. Duh? But if you're in a cult, you believe anything the leader says.

 

Hitler's Cult: This was the ultimate cult, as he was wildly popular among Germans in the 1930s and early1940s. Just like Jones and Applewhite above, the German people eventually paid the ultimate price for believing every LIE he told them

Sounds true in every single way. So sad so many of his followers can't see the truth and are Brain Washed. It may be too late when they realize how he has absolutely ruined this Country and in so MANY WAYS for so MANY.
But Not fo Him and His Family.
