MAGA is a cult, full stop.
When you combine the slavish following of one crazy lunatic with the blind devotion to an invisible Sky Daddy and you have people who are just not equipped to handle reality when it smacks them in the face.
If you cannot see this, you’re probably a double member.
And thanks to your Dear Leader, you’re now down three extra bodies along with the millions who died of COVID-19.
The Daub Family of York County, Pennsylvania, who were “deeply devout Christians” and “huge” supporters of Donald Trump, died in a triple-suicide pact because they just couldn’t face a future where Joe Biden was their President thanks to constant MAGA poison coursing through their bodies.
Police said that the family gathered in the backyard, where 59-year-old Deborah Daub was first shot by her husband, James, 62. Their daughter, Morgan, who was just 26, then shot her father before taking her own life.
Notes found inside the family’s home made it clear that it was a “joint decision” to end their lives, police also said.
A neighbor told NBC News that Deborah Daub and her daughter were “hell-bent on Trump winning” the 2020 election, adding: “Like this could be the end if he doesn’t.”
That’s a textbook definition of a tragedy, because those are three people who should still be alive.
But thanks to Donald Trump putting the literal fear of Boogeyman Joe Biden into them so deeply, they chose a family suicide pact over living out their natural lives without anything that bad happening to them.
If I were related to that family, I would have already retained a lawyer to sue Trump, Fox News, Newsmax, et al, because without the constant rage cycle of doom and gloom propaganda from “ArmagedDON,” they would still be here.
Their blood is literally on his tiny hands.
While Trump didn’t pull the physical triggers, he triggered them with constant fear, JUST LIKE THE CHURCH, so they got even more terrified of all of the nothing.
It sets my skin on fire when people choose to be willfully obtuse instead of thinking for themselves.
Every day I’m given more proof that along with being a Democrat who’s capable of thinking for myself, my atheism is yet another survival mechanism.
We make a lot of jokes about Trump and MAGA, but this isn’t funny in the least.
People are choosing to END THEIR LIVES because he’s not in the White House.
The dangerous cult mentality needs to stop before we hear about more MAGA collateral damage like the Daub family.
