Trump & The Republicans Say they Are "Prolife" But Really Are A Death Cult

Thom plus logo Donald Trump is running around the country encouraging people to congregate and behave in ways that spread the coronavirus, and not a single Republican in Congress is warning their constituents about the dangers.

How is this different from Jim Jones encouraging his followers to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid while his enablers stand by? Isn't it just a matter of severity?

Jones's exhortation killed virtually everybody who listened to it, 909 people. Trump's decisions, words and behavioral example have killed two hundred thousand people, and the number is rising rapidly.

And now we have Republican senators who have been exposed to and, in one case tested positive for, the coronavirus and they insist on hanging out with elderly colleagues without masks at the Supreme Court hearings.

Down in Texas, a former Trump follower who didn't take the coronavirus seriously because of what Trump said ended up infecting 14 people and killing two, all in his own family, as well as ending up in the hospital himself. "I feel like a drunk driver that killed his family," Tony Green said.

"I'm falling on my sword," he added. "It's humiliating, embarrassing and hurtful and it's just reminding me constantly, you know, what our family's been through. So I'm doing that basically for awareness. I want to stop the spread."

Occasionally Republicans, like Green, wake up. Sadly, the Party continues to reach out and recruit new and gullible followers.

Donald Trump is running a death cult. He called for the death penalty for five innocent young men in New York City years ago, and continues to assert that they should be put to death even though another person has confessed to the crime and all the evidence proves they had nothing to do with it.

He largely ignored Puerto Rico during a time of distress, leading to thousands of deaths. He wants to strip healthcare protections away from Americans, which Harvard researchers say could lead to an additional 40,000 to 60,000 deaths. He continues to protect the fossil fuel industry from cost or liability and support their subsidies while they are actively destroying our atmosphere, something that today is killing Americans and people all over the world.

And now he's actively spreading a deadly disease around the country, and encouraging others to do so.

And he is doing all of this with the active support of the Republican Party.

Republicans love to celebrate the term "life" when they put it in the context of the state controlling women and their bodies. But in every other regard they are a death cult.
