There are few things less convincing than speculative, hypothetical paranoia. Like many far-right crackpots, Dave Janda thinks we’re always just this close to rounding up Christians and killing them. He says that if Clinton had won the election in 2016, he would almost certainly be dead by now.
Janda went on to insist that “Trump, in fact, has already delivered” on the most important issue—working to dismantle the “deep state”—simply by being elected, because America would be in ruins if Clinton had won.
“Imagine what this country would be like if Hillary had won,” Janda said. “I am very sincere when I say this—some people will think this is hyperbole, but it’s not—if Hillary had won, I can tell you for fact [that] I and hundreds of others would no longer be living, our country would have been at war in 2017, martial law would have been instituted in 2017, and the financial system would have collapsed. And that is just for starters.”
Yes, he’s telling you that for a fact because he can not only see the future, he can see alternative timelines as well. He got that power from a Secret Wingnut Decoder Ring, free with a box of Cracker Jacks in the mid-80s. That anyone takes this nonsense seriously is really quite alarming, I think.
