As a previous post has noted, what breached the "blue wall" of Hillary Clinton in states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin was the vote of angry white evangelicals driven by what they viewed as their last chance to force their toxic religious views on all of society. Rather than face modernity, the need to think for themselves, and the untruth of many of their cherished beliefs, these selfish, hate-filled people voted for a thrice married, serial adulterer, sexual predator and pathological liar, thus displaying the true nature of the "Biblical values" that they desperately cling to. The question now is whether the media and the rest of society will finally cease giving deference to their feign piety and posturing and recognize them for the toxic hypocrites that they are in fact. Sadly, my faith in the media to wake up and expose the rancid and toxic nature of these people is almost non-existent. A piece in Daily Kos looks at what these evangelical "Christians" have revealed about themselves. Here are excerpts:
Evangelicals don't care who they vote for—however morally repugnant or vengeful. That person can grab pussy and brag about it. That person can incite violence against the tired and downtrodden. He can even cheat the poor.
For close to 20 years now I have said that evangelical, fundamentalist Christians are not only not nice or decent people, but also that they threaten constitutional government in America. With Trump's election, our republic may have died and it is all thanks to these foul and horrible people. They deserve nothing but utter contempt from the rest of society.
