It's scary that Kid Rock is the only self-aware person in that group.

Kid Rock. Holy shiat.

No one cares. I'm not happy they're shattered. I'm not sad they're shattered. Their state of mind doesn't enter into my state of mind, because I don't friggin' care. They have no impact on reality; this is social media, after all.

Not sure what these people see in Trump. He had a child's understanding of every aspect of the job.

Maddow had a good segment tonight on everything the Biden Administration did today. One of the key things was a 200-page plan of action for dealing with the virus, including rolling out the vaccine and getting it out (staying true to the 100 million in 100 days mandate).

The reason why they did this is because the Trump Administration didn't hand off one. They didn't hand it off because there wasn't one. Trump never had a plan. The vaccine wasn't rolled out because no one was in charge of it. So it just sat there in freezers.

Things like logistics, supplies, communications, action plans and policy implementations, all require thousands of people moving independently in unison to further a single goal or objective, in every department. This requires a level of competence, pedigree, experience and trustworthiness within the ranks of the organization. A lot of the people Biden hired were Obama people, so they've been in these positions before, they know what they need and how to actualize plans, and they hit the ground running with little oversight or supervision. It's a smooth, efficient, tight ship.

But with Trump -- everything ran through Trump. No one could do anything without running it by him first. And if he wasn't interested in it or if it reflected negatively on him, then his immediate go-to instinct was to just ignore it. And so nothing would get done for weeks, while he spent most of his time on things that made him feel good (like rallies and adulation), rather than focus on the real problems in the country.

How can anyone still support Trump when it's obvious he didn't know how government works. A lot of libertarian types like to think that's a feature -- less government is best. And, well, that's our 4-year experiment with no-government, a kakistocracy. And all it proved is libertarians are full of shiat, something we already knew.

Asked and answered. He is exactly as dumb and hateful as they are.

The only difference between him and the moron army is that he's rich enough to get away with doing what they wish they could. They damn near worshipped him because he was #goals to them.

I didn't see anyone on that list who I would consider a celebrity, just a bunch of washed up has-beens who haven't been relevant in 30 years.

I happened to chance upon Scott Baio's Twitter stream this morning. Yeah, he's damaged.

Shame about Dean Cain & Kristy Swanson tho.

Yup. His dad owns the largest used car dealership in Detroit.

While Em was growing up in a trailer, this is Kid Rock's childhood home...

People support Trump because he hates the same people they do.

Every election, I keep track of celebrities who endorse a particular candidate and I write their name on a poker chip and place it on a plate of a scale and and the day before the election, I look at the scale and completely ignore what I see because I am a free thinker who base my decisions on what I see and hear and believe and care not at all for self important attention whores unless they are bringing out a new stolen sex tape or promoting hacked nudes on the internet for their next project.
 
2021-01-22 7:22:39 AM  
Can someone hire one of these celebrities for a sitcom, film the pilot, make them believe the character has some grand ambition or purpose, can them, and then make the series and recast them for episodes two and following and make it about embarrassing them? Charles in Charge Returns: Episode 2, Charles can't stop eating his own feces and wears a red hat with white letters stating his disorder.

Just think, if we passed a law stating that the public dissemination of lies (such as the election was stolen) that resulted in a felony would be criminal incitement, several of these former celebrities would now be under investigation by the FBI.

We know Randy Quaid is mentally unstable and Kirstie Alley definitely seems to be there with "trusting the plan".

On the plus side, all of this "trusting the plan" is keeping QAnon violence at bay and giving many of them time to offramp from QAanon and on to the next religious cult.

Since Randy Quaid's post was on Jan. 18th, I will agree with him. Dolt 45 is the dumbest President we have ever had.

Besides, most celebrities have an agent handle their twitter for them.  I know Sorbo has said he has his son handle it and doesn't bother even looking at social media.  I just make the assumption that unless they have said it out loud on camera or it's a late night drunken tweet accompanied by a blurry mirror selfie then it's probably some intern.

I asked this in a Fark thread before but no one had an answer:

When all is said and done, what I don't understand is the cult-like following of this guy.
For all intents and purposes, he's a politician.  So, you liked this politician.
He's now no longer the president.  So he can't do anything for you, so what is the point of still bowing to him?

What is the point of the idolatry of ANY politician?

I guess what I'm asking is why is there no cult of Reagan?  or Bush?  or Ross Perot?  or Pat Paulson?!

I'm not going on an anti-Trump (which I am) stomp, here.  I'm genuinely asking why OTHER politicians, celebrities AND regular people care SO much about THIS one guy?  Whether or not you liked him, what is the point?

Like why not find the NEXT politician you think can help you, if that's the reason you honestly like Trump.  You think he can do something for YOU, right?  So now that he can't....

I'm not articulating myself well.  But I'm just honestly curious why THIS politician got the cult-leader response but NO ONE politician ever has?

She's been into Scientology for decades so not really much of a surprise.

What is surprising is just how gullible so many people are.  I mean, Trump is and always has been a conman.  He has no other skills.  But he's a really really obvious one if you ask me, like comically bad, like professional wrestling bad.  So he's not even a good conman.  It just seems so incredible to me that people fall for what is so clearly just bad theater.  Stranger still, the people in TFA are actors.  Don't they recognize when someone is just faking it?

buntz: I guess what I'm asking is why is there no cult of Reagan? or Bush? or Ross Perot? or Pat Paulson?!


There are. Except for Bush (I think - never noticed one, anyways)

Those cults are just small and still shrinking - people who join cults of personality shift their loyalties over time, or die, in a fairly predictable curve.

Even most of Bernie's stans will eventually move on. :P
 
2021-01-22 8:45:22 AM  
they were stupid, unhappy people before this started you can take it on faith they've only gotten worse.

stop paying attention to them, even to mock them, and they will go away faster.

To answer your question more verbosely: Only Republicans worship their leaders because they are authoritarians. Democrats might have fondness for Obama or people they really respect and admire, but they are not strict authoritarian. It's an actual psychological profile that explains a lot of their behavior.

The authoritarian mindset is taught from an early age to obey authority and never question it (religious upbringing has a lot to do with this, which is why Evangelicals trend toward the GOP. The military too). It's all about blind faith belief.

If you have a blind faith belief in something - it doesn't matter what that something is - you open the door for atrocities to occur. Anyone can be brought to the bidding of their superiors, or be compelled to commit any heinous or unspeakable act, for the sake of strict adherence to a program or format of social control.

There is a commonality of blind faith in all the extremisms of past ages, from fundamentalist theocracies to military dictatorships, from the totalitarian nation-states of the twentieth century to the Inquisitions of medieval Europe. The holder of a blind faith is static in a constantly changing Universe. It is not what they believe in that's so dangerous - the exact particulars of the belief are really quite irrelevant - but to the extent that they will defend their beliefs. This is true of zealots from every facet of civilization, from politics to religion, law, war, culture, race and industry. It is also true for value systems that people show unwavering fealty toward, from holy books to Constitutions.

Everything comes down to a fundamental assumption of faith. But it's how faith is upheld that matters. If you believe in something absolutely from a position of blind faith then you will defend it absolutely from a position of blind faith. There is no room for interpretation: It is 100% true, absolute, and beyond question. You will seek out and destroy its opponents as they are threats to its wisdom and self-evident superiority. You are capable of dying for it and you are capable of killing for it. You are capable of being told to kill for it, and you accept conquest or annihilation as the only logical courses of action. There is no middle ground.

If we wish to live in an ethical world where atrocities do not occur, then we must reject blind faith and accept critical evaluation (but don't do this blindly, of course). The reason for this is quite simple: If you recognize the possibility that your basic assumptions might not be absolutely correct, then you will be much more tolerant of someone who disagrees with your assumptions. Moreover, you will not perceive their opposition as a threat to yours. You will disagree, but you will not die, and you will not kill for your convictions. The door to a better world lies down this path.

Jesus....talk about a parade of has-beens.

That's the sort of list that even VH-1 would have said "I just don't think we have enough star power to pull this off."

It must have pissed Trump off to see, even in a pandemic, as many A-list celebs and performers willing to come out and be part of his inauguration.

He has all the charm and grace of a televangelist, which is why he tried to appeal to the crowd who follow those people. Grifters can grift because they know how to appeal to the stupid and the almost but not quite stupid alike.
