Isn't this a non issue? Wait a minute. Biden came to power because a large number of Americans voted Democrat. Now America is largely a Christian nation and I believe non Christians are a minority in America. So this means a large percentage of Christians voted Democrat? 

Whats the problem?

One of the biggest problem with this, is the same problem with motivational speakers. They are good at manipulating your emotions making you feel excited and motivated and making you feel like you are strong and smart. Being able to manipulate your feelings like that, these people can do with you whatever they want. In this case, they can easily trap stage blue people to believe that democrats are evil.

@Leo Gura I think you have a maga paranoia. I don’t agree with their views, but there’s no need to go crazy. In the end, the American people will choose whose values they agree with. You can’t force your opinions on people.

@Fleetinglife Speaking of Warhammer 40k, such are the times we're living that a satire of fascism has been unironicly appropriated by real life fascists.

The official term is "Trump derangement syndrome"

I have noticed that in the past 5+ Youtube videos (I've lost track of how many) he always mentions Trump. Doesn't matter if it's talking about Infinity of Gods, States of Consciousness, Ketamine. Somehow an opportunity always comes up to name-drop Trump regardless of the topic. It's almost like someone made a bet with him to see if he can mention Trump in every video, otherwise I don't get why Trump is living so rent-free in his head still after 2 years. Imagine if your favorite Youtuber mentioned Hitler or Mother Teresa every single video. It'd be kind of weird, right?

Even if Democrats win the next 2 presidential elections we'll still be talking about and blaming Trump for some reason.

I'd counter that with "misplaced normalcy syndrome", which describes people shoving thier head in the sand and downplaying large and obvious changes in the social landscape, in the niiave belief that tomorrow will be like yesterday regardless of what's going on at the present moment.

Large social shifts can and do happen, and what's been taking place over the last five to ten years in America (ie a fucking coup attempt by a president who lost an election and is highly likely to try again in a few years) is not in any way normal.

Yeah we can say that Trump is a symptom rather than a cause, but normalizing what's happening in society right now is extremely dangerous and irresponsible.

call me a reactionary as mush as you’d like. This type of speech is a mirror of how ISIS/extreme muslim movement leaders speak.

it might appear to you like the politics and the movies your used to, big bold talk just to grab attention and increase views, yet this is exactly what got young  men and women misguided and brainwashed into raiding countries and establish a khalif “ in order to go back to the golden age of islam”

form someone form that part of the world who has been driven outside of their county because of this crap, this is alarming ! Idk it you people in the west are not used to seeing this or you’re too in your head to realize — possibly you’ve had a normal run as a socity for too long to realize the danger of this, but this is what terrorist start at, this is the forefront — you all better pay attention and take this serious.

this is similar to in-sighting jihad, nothing good comes out of this.

After a literal coup attempt and Republicans openly abandoning democracy we have every reason to be paranoid

I really think those of you who are into Politics should give this book a read:

https://www.amazon.com/Priests-Politicians-Mafia-Spiritually-Incorrect®/dp/193875588X

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/priests-and-politicians-osho/1123191887?ean=9781938755880

I think this is very fitting as this thread is about so called ''MAGA priests'', its both religious and political, just like the book above.

 

The priests job is to rule your spiritual world, and the politicians, the education system, culture, and Capitalism's job is to rule your material world, neither of which have the best vested interest in you. All of which are corrupting influences.

I truly think that the culture being encouraged on this forum of constant political info-tainment consumption is problematic and unhealthy. What is learning about some crazy ''MAGA pastor'' going to do for me and my happiness? If anything, I feel sorry for the man in the video for being so deluded and angry, and I wish for him to be at peace.

I encourage everyone on this forum to not only read the book above, but also limit and restrict the amount you flood your mind with endless political entertainment. You have both a physical diet, and a mental diet. Clean your mental diet and cut out the endless political gossip, as well as the constant diarrhea of political Twitch/YouTube livestreams. 

Politics is getting more and more unintelligent and uncultured, ever since President Trump first emerged in 2015 politics has only gotten more stupid and unintelligent. The Conservatives have only lost their minds as the MAGA mind cancer has only encouraged more anger and more completely idiotic and uninformed unintelligent behavior. I mean, they literally flooded the Capital because of a conspiracy theory. It seems that only the most loud, obnoxious, and ideological voices that are allergic to nuance are allowed to speak and are given airtime (Candance Owen, Al Sharpton, Ben Shapiro, Stephan Crowder, Vaush, The Young Turks, Jimmy Dore, all of Fox News, Right Wing Radio, etc...). And I will not allow any of you on this forum to pollute my mind by posting their videos.

This is causing what is known as ''overstimulation'' in your brain, as you're frying your dopamine receptors with excessive video entertainment. Stop consuming a diarrhea slew of endless politics, please. It is not doing anything for your life and is only filling your mental diet with garbage, just like how eating junk food fills your physical diet with trash.

Interesting. I knew a bit about the lore beforehand just from playing the earlier first 2000s PC game franchises as a kid/teen, but not about it in depth that it is an equivalent of a comic book universe. 

Though I first encountered that cringefest of God Emperor Trump [or insert any other personal favorite right-leaning authoritarian political leader] memes and even sculptures participating in festival parades a few years back. 

It is seems that it went through the same symptom as Starship Troopers movie directed by Paul Verhoeven intended at first at parodying and satirizing fascist ideas manifesting in future imagined societies just in slightly different forms, language and symbols but then it got appropriated and revisioned again by some alt-right con skeptics as being a movie in favor and lauding such ideas by discussing the potential possible future validity of those ideas presented [given their views on the present state of Western society ?] in the movie, by which a society like that can be based around of, by referring to the supposed right libertarian leanings author of the books Robert A. Heinlein the movie was based around of.

@Fleetinglife For what it's worth, Starship Troopers (the Heinlein novel, not the Paul Verhoeven film) was a philosophical novel that arguably defends and promotes fascism, by imagining a scenario where a fascist society could work.

From what I understand when Paul Verhoeven picked up the film for adaptation, he was disgusted by the far Right ideology of the book and decided to use the film adaptation to deconstruct the ideas in the book.

As to Warhammer 40k, it was conceived from the outset as a mashup of sci-fi and dystopian settings including Dune and Judge Dredd that was intended to be a somewhat tongue in cheek satire of fascism from the very beginning.

Despite the anti-fascist satire being about as subtle as a brick thrown through a window, real world fascists tend to gravitate towards it mostly because they like the aesthetics of the setting and because fascists are the protagonists (regardless of it they're unambiguously villain protagonists).
