Wingnut Weekly – 5 Jan 2020

Cartoonist Rob Rogers, who was fired for drawing cartoons that were critical of Trump, drew the above this past week to point out … “As I was trying to think of how Trump might reflect on 2019, it occurred to me that he isn’t reflective at all. In fact, he probably doesn’t even believe in the passage of time if it affects him negatively. ”

I took a break from doing Wingnut weekly last week and so I now have a full 2 week period to throw a spotlight upon.

Am I spoiled for choice regarding the various wingnut proclamations? Very much so yes, but that remains true when I am reviewing just one week.

Let’s dive right in.

Wingnut proclamations from the last 7 14 days

Here for your enjoyment is my latest selection of wingnut gems, this time covering the last 14 days instead of just 7. It has all been mined from the stream of befuddled right-wing / religious proclamations …

The Cult of Trump ..

Rage of the Trumpvangelicals ..

  • Religious Right Slams Christianity Today Over Impeachment Editorial… “On Sunday, Christianity Today published a response to critics of Galli’s editorial, refuting the​ claims​ about the magazine as a repository of leftism made by Trump and his religious-right allies​ and arguing that “the alliance of American evangelicalism with this president has wrought enormous damage to Christian witness​” and harmed perceptions of the “Bride of Christ,” as religious followers sometimes refer to the broader Christian church.
  • Cliff Kincaid is mad at Christianity Today for calling for Trump’s impeachment but not attacking Pete Buttigieg: … “In contrast to the matter of whether Trump’s phone call about Ukraine was right or wrong, the issue of homosexual behavior and the Bible is not debatable.”
    • The consumption of shellfish as an abomination within the bible is also not debatable, and is apparently not such a burning issue.

Homophobia on Steroids ..

  • Andrew Bieszad is not a fan of Trump because the president hasn’t used the power of his office to destroy the … “sodomite agenda” … “He was given his chance, and he proved himself to be a failure, and now he is marketing himself to the world not just as the leader of the US, but as practically an ambassador and evangelist for sodom.
  • Rodney Howard-Browne says that Christians were justified in voting for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016 because while Trump may have had multiple affairs, Clinton is a lesbian.
    • The ever so tiny little flaw here is that his claim is utter BS.

Rebellion Against God …

  • Rick Wiles says that the founding of the state of Israel in 1948 was an act of rebellion against God.

Predictions …

Folks who make the Top 10 list of utter plonkers …

  • Scott Lively made a list of the “top 10 pro-family heroes of 2019” … and included himself on that list.

What else came out of the Wingnut fantasy land?

Lots of other stuff. 

As always, it is an endless stream. Some of it is sad, some is rather grim, and some is quite frankly hilarious. Here are a few more samples …
