Can't argue with this any more.

" Gartner also explains that Donald Trump's supporters are members of a political death cult in which not wearing a mask and refusing other rational measures to stop the coronavirus pandemic are acts of loyalty and love to their personal savior and Great Leader. "

No.  A terrorist uses acts of violence and destruction to bring about a political goal.  Trump is using the powers of his position to commit genocide.

It is the only thing that makes sense to me.  He and his administration are incompetent, but they will move the earth to keep non whites from coming into the country.  Data that they have had access to from the beginning of this show that minorities are at a much higher risk to the virus.

They willfully do nothing to stop it.  They are actively killing people.  They know who they are killing.

And what do you think the power of the office of president uses? Cuddles and hugs? All the power of the president is based on the cops and the army.... force.

Dont pay your taxes? Cops show up.
Break the law? Cops show up
Deal justice to those protected by the corrupt judges? Cops show up

All power is based on force, violence and destruction.

If you see the role of the republican party as the conduit of public assets into private (well-connected) hands, Trump has been very successful.

Yeah... There's "consent of the governed" vs. "force."

We ~used~ to be the former.  November and its aftermath are gonna be *very* important points in this shiatshow timeline.

So if Donald Trump is personally responsible for committing mass murder on a global scale then why does he still get along well with Putin? It's not like Russians have been magically spared from the horrors of COVID-19.

Based on what my relatives tell me, the big outbreak seems to have been contained in Russia...of course the elderly must remain in quarantine indefinitely for now which explains the (knock on wood) lower death rate compared to Italy.

"During his two Independence Day weekend speeches, Donald Trump declared that anyone who does not support him is an enemy of America who should be destroyed. Trump is not kidding. He is not making a "harmless joke." He is deadly serious. Why are so many Americans still in denial about this reality?"

Those people aren't in denial, they completely agree with him, thus the idea of collective narcissism.  They want "liberals" destroyed just as much as he does.  Liberals have become their enemies, not just people they disagree with politcally.  They are past the point of rational discussion.

"The American people and the world really need to understand that we are heading towards the endgame with Donald Trump. This moment is extremely dangerous because Trump is wounded, rejected and feeling devalued. Trump is going to be a loser and probably go to jail if he is not re-elected. Trump is going to take everyone down with him. But Trump also has enablers in place throughout the government to protect him. This is all very dangerous."

I know that I'm not the only one here on Fark who has talked about the day that Trump decompensates and does as narcissists do, going nuclear.  Frighteningly, with him it could easily happen literally.

We get it, he's a malignant psychopathic monster and that it's absolutely no exaggeration to compare him to Hitler in that regard.

The question is, what is going to happen when he gives his Nero Order?

He's an idiot, and I can't stand him either, but I don't think he's killing people because he's evil.
He's killing them because he's vain, immoral, and/or stupid. Or his Russian overlords are telling him to reduce the population.
Evil implies some level of cognitive thought process to hatch a cunning plan. This clown couldn't open a can of peaches.
No, I really, really think somebody is pulling his strings. I really don't think he's smart enough to be evil.

Intelligence is not a prerequisite for evil. Many serial killers, for instance, were of below-average intelligence, often way below average.

Ha! Ok I can accept that. There are probably more than one form of evil.

As far as burying hookers, you'd have to hire very loyal and very strong people to dig those holes if you are don. I can't imagine him knowing which end of the shovel to hold.

I think he is referring to those he is trying to murder.  We keep giving him passes because we don't have it in us to storm the White House and climb over our compatriots' dead bodies to get to him and take him for a drag down Pennsylvania Avenue.

I get that Trump targets certain segments of the population (immigrants, women who aren't Ivanka, people who can read), but his maliciousness seems less deliberately evil and more selfish disinterest in anything other than his own happiness. His whole ideology is "Hurray for me, to hell with you" writ large.

Yes, I am willing to concede that there are levels of evil that I may not be familiar with, and don may have an entire floor to himself!
