Donald Trump – and some of those who still follow him – have an interesting thing in common with Dr. Fauci and those who still follow him.
The latter continues to insist that “mask” wearing is sensible rather than farcical. His followers continue to . . . follow him.
Which is farcical.
The former continues to insist that the “vaccines” have “saved millions of lives” – and his followers continue to . . . follow him.
Which is inexplicable.
Both seem blinkered by their politics. The Faucists “mask” – and defend “masking” – because they understand that not defending “masking” undermines everything the Faucists – who are Leftists – are seeking to achieve, via “masking.”
Trumpers defend their man because he is their man.
In both instances, it is a kind of religious orthodoxy expressed politically that keeps them in “church.” No matter how unsafe and ineffective the “vaccines” have proved to be, the Orange Man is still taking credit for “warp speeding” them into circulation. And his followers – most of whom know the “vaccines” aren’t safe or effective and deeply resent being pressured to take them, continue to follow him.
Worse, they continue to apologize for him. Conjure endless 5D chess excuses for him. It is “devolution”! It is all about “giving the enemies of America the rope they need to hang themselves with!”
Wait and see!
It’s even worse than the still-“masking” followers of Fauci, who are at least consistent in that they have always supported “masking” as well as “vaccinating” because they are herd-animal Leftists with a psychological need to be told what to do and to tell others what they must do. And Fauci is their shepherd.
Are they also sheep?
They are largely people who understood the evils of “masking” – from the beginning. Because they understood what it represented – and where it would lead. They supported their man because they thought he stood in opposition to everything “masking” represented – including this ugly (and deadly) business of all-but-actually-forcing the population to submit to “vaccinations” that are no such thing. Including – never forget this – essentially helpless children, who had even less choice about being “vaccinated” than their parents who were given the “choice” to either be injected or be ejected, from their jobs.
School-age kids (including college kids) were told the same and made to do it, in god-knows-how-many cases, by their parents – who made the “choice” for them. The kids had no choice, at all.
And now they know it.
Yet they are not angry with him. They abide his ongoing pushing of these dangerous drugs, excusing it by saying evasive things like he never mandated that anyone take them. True. He presented them with a fait accompli. “Choose” to take the drugs – or choose to no longer be employed. Choose to have your kids take the drugs – or choose to take them out of school.
The Faucists – the ongoing “maskers” – are some combination of obdurate and idiotic, with politics leavening the mix. But at least they are consistent. What are the ongoing followers of the man who continues to not merely defend but advocate for the unsafe and ineffective “vaccines” that probably nine out of ten of his followers violently objected to being all-but-actually (as in physically) forced to take?
To their credit, Fauci’s followers would probably stop following their man, if he were to walk back “masking.” If he publicly admitted he’d made a big mistake and given bad advice, however well-meant. His followers would regard this as a breaking-of-the-faith, which is exactly what it would be.
But it is the opposite as regards the Orange Man. Or at least, it ought to be. His followers ought to have stopped following him when he broke the faith. After he continued peddling drugs. And helping to facilitate something worse, which is the precedent set by this dirty business of government colluding with drug-peddlers to push drugs on people in an “emergency.”
We’re not done with that yet, even if the “pandemic” is all-but-finis. There will be new “pandemics” – as promised, by the hair-plugged man. And when they arrive – probably just in time for the mid-terms to be done from home – new drugs will be pushed on us.
And the man who was supposed to be the bulwark against such atrocities is the very man who continues to defend such atrocities.
The question is, why do his followers continue to defend him?
Apparently, because facts matter as little to them as they do to the followers of Fauci.
