The Trump Cult

If you can defend ripping kids from parents, you are in a cult.

In May, 2017, I posted this: Gaslight, USA! Today’s Trouncing –Your  Healthcare. 

In the post, I quoted cultic studies guru, Robert J Lifton: cults see themselves as “ … agents ‘chosen’ to carry out the ‘mystical imperative’… which must supersede all  decency or immediate human welfare. Similarly, any thought or action which questions the motives of the higher purpose is considered … backward, selfish and petty in the face of the great overriding mission.”

Today, the Daily KOS posted this: Trumpism is a Cult. You may be interested in reading it. I suspect it will ring familiar.

    Also, a cult or cult member does all the above even at the detriment of self, others, family, or nation. For example, suicide bombers, or gang members in Guatemala, choosing distruption and kaos over life.
    In the Robert/Sharon cult, members like LH refuse to visit a dying mother, others are encouraged to cut all ties to siblings or even their own children. For what? To be used and drained and emotionally abused?
    If they have no connections outside the cult, why or how could they leave?

      Yep. It’s heartbreaking and bizarre and infuriating. I wish I could snap my fingers and free every cult member, including Trumpists, out of their comas — especially right now. My dad always said, “People do things when they’re ready.” I believe that this is esp true of those of us who were sucked into destructive groups. We leave, when something inside rattles us awake. Unfortunately, some never reconnect to that inner voice.
