Video of the day -- madness rising to the surface

A month ago I posted this video by "Holy Koolaid" showing various prominent wingnuts freaking out as their prophecies (yes, prophecies) and promises from God were confounded by Trump's election defeat.  This follow-up video shows how, since then, they've doubled down on their delusions, utterly impervious to the reality all around them.  Millions of Americans listen to these people and take them seriously -- and they vote.  This is the hard core of the "stupid one-third".

Doesn't it say in the Bible "And the crazy shall lead them"? Well, if it doesn't, it should.

Debra: Now that would be a prophecy fulfilled!

Mary: Religion seems to help a lot of other things go wrong too.....

I think I need one of those 666 chips. It might help fend off the crazies.

These nut jobs like tRUMP because they are conmen just like him. This video would be hilarious if it weren't so scary.

There's a sucker born every minute and nothing pays like the religion racket. A perfect con game for authoritarians and sociopaths.

My take on these ill-informed, incurious dupes boils down to three observations:

Ignorance isn't ignorance to the ignorant.

Racism isn't racism to racists.

A cult isn't a cult to a cult.

Our binomial nomenclature designation "Homo Sapiens" may be too generous a term for most of our species.

Hey, it says so right in the Book that Trump won. And I can quote you chapter and verse:

"For Lo, I came upon a tally device in the wilderness, and it spake unto me saying, 'Be thou pure of mind, for thou shalt feel the shudder of a great trump striking the land, even unto a second time, and the valleys shall echo with the hosannas of the Free, and they shall stab themselves into the arm with a spike of sacred anointing oils, and the people shall no longer fall ill and dying, neither shall devastation be wrought unto your lands, but instead they shall sing loud and joyous melanias throughout the land of Aivann-ka."

— Dementias, Ch. 26, verse 3

Yours very crankily,
The New York Crank

Mike: If they approach you, just make some mysterious-looking hand gesture and mumble "Satan protect thy servant". That should startle them into silence until you're out of hassling range.

Dave: There are extensive Dunning-Kruger-type issues at work here, that's for sure.

Shaw: Oh, they're scary all right, but don't forget to laugh as well. They owe us that much.

Crank: I'd take that as gospel.....

These people should be taxed out of existence.

They're certainly not upholding their end of the bargain by staying out of politics. Churches are a business like any other and there's no reason they shouldn't pay the same taxes.
