"Sadly, Evangelicals are ripe for being grifted.
Given the very nature of who they are, and how they are taught makes them targets. Evangelicals receive emotional affirmation for displaying the ability to believe and support those things which are impossible, all in the name of faith. A virgin became pregnant. A man died and after three days rose again. A man created an ark, a flood came and only he and his family survived. In the beginning of time, one man and one woman birth all of civilization as we know it today.
Indeed the entire philosophy rests on blind faith.
Critical thinking does not exist. In fact, it is treated as blasphemous, lies, and anyone entertaining such thoughts is ostracized."
"While all of these factors lead to an uneducated, confidently defying logic population, the risk is even greater.
Imagine, should these militantly blind followers were to become organized, armed and felt to be threatened in some way. Where would they draw the line?
There is no motivation to listen, engage in conversation, or entertain an opposing viewpoint.
Further, anyone not in line with your opinion is evil. This person, group, political party is not doing Gods work so they must be stopped at all costs. the loss of human lives, right or wrong is irrelevant."
Renewing old acquaintances.
Remember Larry Rendell Brock? Retired Air Force Lt. Col. with the zip-cuffs on the Senate floor?
The one who looks like an officer - which he was - giving orders to his subordinates during the insurrection?
He got indicted and charged. 7 counts. No trial or plea deal yet, but I hope the FBI/DOJ is pressuring him to talk. My bet is that he was in charge of a capture mission ... congresspeople...maybe Pence.
This guy took an oath to defend the US. Instead, he attacked us.
Their response to "Don't Look Up" puts the needle on the clueless dial off the scale.
Here's some remarks from the ONE entry I could find on the Freepsite.
Literate conservatives, like National Review, see what's there and agree the movie is a spot-on satire about the trump cult... and that cult's intellect.
The trumpers think it's a slam on the Left.
"The left destroys their own arguments and beliefs in a film that I am pretty sure was meant as a reinforcement to them. I am sure it was meant as slam on Trump and his followers, but it really was the opposite.
In real life the dont look up crowd are those who pimp Covid fear as a means of control."
"The Hunger Games was another one that backfired on the left. It was meant to target the evil republicans, but they didnt realize how much it mirrored themselves."
"THIS is from lefties? Do they not realize this is exactly how they behave? Do they think theyre portraying the right? Did they wake up from their nonsense?"
"Seems like they shot themselves in the feet. Did they understand or did we take if wrong. I found it comical that the points they were making made more fun of how they behave."
"Its no great surprise the left doesnt see the humor because it unmasks their totalitarian bent. Parts of it had me laughing out loud because it was obviously made by leftists with absolutely no self awareness. If you cant see Hillary in the amoral movie president, you need to put down the bong."
Are you hearing of any robberies of pot shops?
It's an all-cash business, and from what I've seen, business is booming.
The banks are all tumescent about getting their hands on that money, but since it's still illegal Federally....
Any word on robberies... or why there isn't?
