In Trump’s America, They Still Worship Golden Idols

Canadians Need to Consider the Possibility that “Trumpism” and All of the Hate,  Rage and Violence  it Represents is Still Barking at our Border

Don’t let your guard down Canadians! This orange man has not gone away! Thanks to tens-of-millions of Republicans in the United States, he is still president and has not gone away. “Our movement,” says Trump to adoring Republican fans, ” has only just begun.”

A Brief Commentary by Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper

Posted March 1st, 2021 on Niagara At Large

I don’t know how many of you may have heard news from this U.S. Republican Party fest called CPAC in Orlando. Florida these past few days of February, but it was made clear there that Trump is still the U.S. president, because he had the election stolen from him, and that Republicans must continue storming the ramparts for – as Texas Senator Ted Cruz sceamed – is FREEDOM!!!!!

During this Republican Party love-fest for Trump, his faithful ushered in a full-size, golden monument to their “god” – Donald Trump. It looked like about the tackiest thing I have ever seen but we have to remember. This a country where more than 70 million Americans, just last November, voted for a second term for Trump, and many of the, according to many polls, still believe the presidency was “stolen” from him.

Trump holds a The Holy Bible, upside down and probably another book he has never read, at a church across from the White House after having uniformed thugs violently push a peaceful rally of Black Lives Matter out of the way in June of 2020. Somehow, Trump coouldn’t seem to get the same armed forces out to protect America’s Capitol building from a violent mob this past January 6th.

So in comes the golden idol, before the real Trump came in to speak to cheering, adoring Republicans, to echo what some of us dare to call “the big lie” that he won that election and will win again, in the next presidential election in 2024.

Given how mad the United States of America still is, despite the efforts of a new Biden/Harris administration to turn the madness around, that very well could happen. Let’s not kid ourselves into thinking that the Trumpism or the Trump movement or whatever you want to call it is over.

So let’s get back to Trump’s golden statue at this CPAC event, and all of the many Trump faithful who lined up to have their pictures taken with it.

And let’s remember a passage from the Book of Exodus in The Bible, as much as these same Trumpies have worked to expropriate The Bible for their own purposes –

At a U.S. Republican Party/CPAC fest in Florida in this last weekend in February, 2021, the faithful lined up to have their photos taken with what former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen called “this stupid, pagan  statue.” Polls in the U.S. show that a majority of Republicans would vote for Trump again and still believe that the November, 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.

“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt. 8 They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, ‘These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’

“I have seen these people,” the Lord said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people. 10 Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.”

A great nation? Make America Great Again?!!!

In all due respect to everything that the current U.S. Biden/Harris administration is doing to find their country’s soul again, I think we Canadians need to be mindful of the possibility that this current Trump Republican movement to promote division, hate and violence toward anyone they they perceive as their “enemies” may be barking at our shared border for many years to come.

Beware!

  2. Yes, it’s the 70 million plus that voted for him and all the rest of the Republicans that keeps this unreality tv program funded and running.

    Trump and his minions thrive on media coverage; while the potential negatives of so many people and elected politians can’t be ignored, we can focus on other issues.

  3. Let’s hope he is found guilty of one or all of the impending charges and he will not be able to run with a criminal record.
