A cult so strong it cannot be de-programmed

The entire Republican Party is projecting the ideas and words of Donald J Trump. They believe exactly the opposite of the facts and reporting as we know them. For example, they believe Bill and Hillary Clinton are traitors that have committed crimes against this nation. They believe they have been engaged in money-laundering and sold nuclear materials to Russia so Bill could get a big paycheck for a speech to the Russians. They will never change their minds about the Clintons. They believe Trump is innocent of all the charges that have been made against him. No number of facts or evidence will ever change their minds.

At this time, it is not possible to de-program this cult. They will hold true to their Leader until their death.

1. They believe the Biden family has made a fortune shaking down foreign governments.

Never mind that Joe has released all his taxes and financials to the public, and that hes is so ethical that he never even owned stocks the whole time he was in the Senate.

2. They are brain damaged at this point

So much brain washing has damaged their brains and destroyed neurons. And their pre frontal cortexes ( reasoning, empathy part ) are permanently paralyzed.

They are truly goners.

My husband works with quite a few of them and they are unreachable..

3. Kicking. From a book review by Timothy Snyder:

Hitler believed in telling lies so big that their very scale left some residue of credibility.

When a society consists of somewhere between 30% and 35% of its population who believe not just small lies but Total Lies, what is that society to do?

4. Timothy Snyder is a hero

of our generation. Sarah Kendzior has featured him. Glad Maddow had him on last night. Expert on authoritarianism!

5. The larger struggle....

....is the one between lies and propaganda and the truth, as related to the facts as accepted.

When the truth doesn't matter, then nothing can matter.

6. Too many of the believers think this virus is hoax

The thing they mock will thin out their species.
