For Trump’s evangelicals resistance to cultural “progressivism” – “the liberal agenda” – “abortion/gay rights” mattered more than experience, credentials, know-how, integrity, honesty, even Christianity itself. Now-since Trump’s election loss-they even have abandoned U.S. democracy as they claim Trump won. And Trump’s power over evangelicals grows stronger by day, even as his institutional role fades. Why? Because evangelicals judge Trump’s presidency was a resounding God-given win over liberals. Why? Because evangelicals’ embrace of a reality-TV conman was vindicated as a middle finger in liberal’s eyes. This was never about politics, religion, or faith. It was about revenge.
The mainstream media, in the closing days of 2020, have started embracing their role as truth-tellers, not merchants of false balance– 5 horrible years too late! BUT bad habits die hard. Example: “Congress” did not hold up a coronavirus stimulus bill for nine months; the Republican Senate did. So WHY does the media STILL send out so much false equivalency and vagueness? Democrats lie sometimes but Republicans ARE the party of the BIG LIE. Just say it! The media declare that “our politics” have “become polarized.” Nonsense! The truth is that Republicans have become radical anarchists trashing America. Democrats just elected a moderate president as “polarizing” as my mom. NO MORE false equivalence! Just say it!
Dear Media: Learn to speak English! Republicans attempted to thwart an election, tolerate Putin and overlook conclusive evidence of rampant Trump family lawlessness. So STOP calling the GOP “conservative.” The GOP are far-right authoritarian nihilists NOT “conservative.” Media claims of moral equivalency “fairness” reporting on Dems and GOP must end in this era. Republicans are now OPENLY hostile to US democracy. There’s only one political party in the USA-Democrats, and an ongoing shapeshifting ragtag coup against the rule of law-the GOP. Got it?
