So far Trump is stabbing many of the right people in the back

So far Trump is stabbing many of the right people in the back December 5, 2016

Now:

What’s especially impressive is the purity of her Party of Personal Responsibility fecklessness.  Here is a woman who literally place Trump in the role of God Almighty, writing a book called In Trump We Trust and urging everybody to trust him.  And now she says “It’s not our fault.”  The whole ethos of the Post-Truth Party of Trump in a nutshell.

A reader remarks:

During the campaign, it was “Crooked Hillary” and “Lock Her Up!” Now it’s “the Clintons are good people” and he doesn’t want a special prosecutor. During the campaign, it was an impregnable wall 50 feet high. Now it’s “maybe a fence” – or maybe nothing at all. Before the Iowa Caucuses, he talked about strategic appointments to overturn the gay marriage ruling (Iowa is religiously conservative). Since the election, he’s said gay marriage is settled and should be changed or overturned. During the campaign, climate change was a hoax; now he says there may be some connection to human activity.

Ms Coulter, who I generally take as someone who just blurts outrageous things to get attention, apparently actually _believed_ all that nonsense Trump was spouting, against all available facts, because it was what she wanted to believe.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing it, doesn’t go away. Believing what you want is how over 400 lifeboat seats went unused when Titanic sank: people didn’t believe it was sinking and wouldn’t comply with crew instructions.

Jesus, who is reality, has a warning for a Religious Right that is now committed body and soul to defending a Post-Truth Party of Trump: The devil is a liar and the father of lies.  And reality cannot be wished away:

“Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers! how can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter; for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Mt 12:33–37).
