The Far Right Is Crawling With Eclipse Conspiracy Theories 

 Unfortunately, this is behind a paywall. But who's surprised? The Far Right Trumpers are claiming the recent earthquake in New Jersey and New York was some sort of signal from "God" for something, something, and that the coming solar eclipse is a warning from God as well.

It's not surprising to learn that far righters are making these absurd claims. They believe in a lying liar's claim that he won the 2020 election and that he is a devout Christian.

Trumpers are easily duped by anyone with a fake story. They're not critical thinkers.

Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks earthquake and eclipse are a warning from God Following a 4.8-magnitude earthquake felt in NYC and nearby cities, Greene says it's time to repent 

 Alex Jones weighed-in on the upcoming eclipse with, "All this is a dress rehearsal. No government in modern times have ever acted like this for a solar eclipse." 

While others on social media pointed out, mostly in jest, that today's earthquake, centered only 6.5 miles from Donald Trump’s Bedminster National Golf Club, had something to do with him.

We will experience the eclipse on Monday as a strictly natural cosmic event that has nothing to do with anything supernatural. 

 We also don't believe any of Trump's lies.

I was telling my wife the morning of the NJ earthquake that it would not be long before the Christianist sheeple would be barreling down this supernatural path to pontificating on the earthquake being a "warning from god."

I guess it's nice they have a special "god connection" so they can hear and believe whatever their "god message" from "above" is saying.

Reality is not always what ones mind believes it to be. It is quite often what ones belief system and ego guides one to believe.

Which, as we see with this recent natural phenomenon, the true believers believe god is communication through an earthquake. Which is nothing more than the shift of the earth's crust in simple terms.

But, ya just gotta love the fictional storyline religionists tell themselves to explain natural phenomenal occurances.

MAGA cultists are indoctrinated to deny facts and allow Trump to define reality FOR them.

More from Kremlin agent -FJ's ally Margie Taylor Greene:

"I proudly objected on January 6th. I would object again today because I know for a fact there was so much wrong in that election and I believe it was stolen. Do I know how? No, I don’t know how."
(-FJ and his entire cult of white nationalists also failed to show evidence it was stolen.)

"You can't allow it to just transfer power 'peacefully' like Joe Biden wants, and allow him to become our president."
(In other words, she's inciting violent insurrection. White nationalist -FJ is her ally.)

"I want to tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, we would've been armed."
(Armed insurrectionists are -FJ's allies.)

"I am not going to mince words with you all. Democrats want Republicans dead and they have already started the killings."
(Classic radical Right neo-Nazi PROJECTION!)

"I am a proud Christian nationalist. Our party needs to lean into biblical principles."
(How can white Christian nationalist -FJ say he supports our Constitution with allies like this? Rank hypocrisy, dishonesty, and loyalty to the insurrectionist criminal Trump are all it takes.)

"The Democrats are launching a communist takeover of our country with their so-called 'infrastructure' bill and Biden’s budget."
(Once again, this hateful wacko and moron is -FJ's ally.)

“There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles (Democrats) out.”
(White nationalist FJ loves Margie so much he regurgitates this same LIE and neo-Nazi hate. Like a Kremlin agent blowing his cover, he also doesn't use the American spelling of pedophile.)

Right-wings don't believe stuff just happens. It either happens because of God or Satan — or people taking those roles.

Les Carpenter said...

Dave, not only is it rank hypocrisy, it also puts rank ignorance on full display.

These white nationalists/christian nationalists are reminding me of my studies in history. They seem to have a similar mentallity to that which existed during the Dark Ages and the Salem Witch trials as well as that of 18th and 19th century slave owners.

Jesus is no doubt spinning "in heaven" over their misrepresentation of everything that supposedly represents this mortal guru's teachings.

This nation's future is far from certain. And given the rank hypocrisy and rank ignorance of the far right white christian nationalist and white supremacists it sure as hell isn't looking too good.

Fascism has arrived in America. It came clutching a bible wrapped in an America flag and -FJ as well and the myriad supporters across the Fruited Plains are supporting it to the hilt. As they goosestep to their Fuhrer's every utterance.

-FJ the Dangerous and Extreme MAGA Jew said...

I am "white". I am a "nationalist". Does that make me a "white nationalist"? Or a "Christian nationalist"? ...since I'm not a Christian.

You're all f-d in the head, Dave. You might actually believe that "social justice" is "just".

Les Carpenter said...

Social justice in the minds of decent, compassionate, and loving people, regardles of race or spiritual practice, simply means treating others as you would have them treat you and respecting their indiidual rights and liberties, including repreductive rights and sexual preferences.

But we all know full well that white supremacists, religious nationalists, as well as all folks with conditioned reified beliefs will usually follow their "beliefs", whether true or not.

What is clear is this, the MAGATS, religious nationalists, white supremacists, and fascists are only interested in, and will only accept, their beliefs. While at the same time, make every attempt to force their beliefs on all others.

Les Carpenter said...

-FJ and MAGATS in general need to take the bodhisattva vow. They just might grow compassion and awareness. Or, maybe not.

Shaw Kenawe said...

-FJ "You're all f-d in the head, Dave. You might actually believe that 'social justice' is "just".

“Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities."

I don't speak for Dave Dubya, but for me I understand that the GOAL of social justice is righteous. We keep working toward social justice. Sometime we achieve the goals and sometimes we don't.

I believe fighting to stop the poll tax that targeted Black voters in the south was a good thing, and the Voting Rights Act achieved it. Up until the SCOTUS decided this country didn't need what the Voting Rights ACt protected, since the present SCOTUS declared we're a just society. We're not.

There are five main principles of social justice that are paramount to understanding the concept better. Namely, these are access to resources, equity, participation, diversity, and human rights.

Those are worthwhile human aspirations. If that enrages you, -FJ, please explain what your opposition to these stated ideals is.

Mike said...

From twitter... "Earthquake near Bedminster, NJ. Ground shakes. It opens. Zombie Ivana Trump crawls out of her grave pushing the classified documents that filled her coffin aside. She's angry."

-FJ the Dangerous and Extreme MAGA Jew said...

My argument against social justice isn't the general concept (of justice for all). It's the implementation. It's like a "class action suit" where the paralyzed victim and sprained ankle guy get the same share of the Court settlement. The goal is "efficiency" for the Court system, not "just compensation" for the victims.

I don't think I owe Oprah Winfrey ANY reparations. And "rich privilege" trumps "white privilege" eight days a week.

Les Carpenter said...

If i were my " old self" of yesteryear i might say my argument is not with the ideals of social justice, but rather with the idea that government has a right to legislate those ideals. Thus forcing them on everyone regardless of circumstances.

That was then. Fortunately i was able to grow out of that fiercely ego driven self centered view when the realization occured that we are all indeed interconnected interbeings and we all want to live happy lives free from suffering and turmoil. As well as the realization of the emptiness of all phenomenon.

The human race unfortunately has pretty much demonstrated its inability to naturally put aside ego desires and act instead to create diversity, equanimity, equality, equity, insure human rights, and guarantee full participation in society without the force of a just government.

Sad but true. As we are witnessing full stop with MAGA trump, and the agenda of many conservatives and the trumpublican party.

I just read that young people are favoring the evil one and older folks are moving toward genocide joe. Maybe that is one reason he is giving more money away to rich kids to pay for their tuition. It is interesting that the media's full court press to destroy the evil one is not having the desired results with the younger generation. Maybe it's because they want to have a future even if it involves supporting someone who they don't care for.

Politico "Polls show former President Donald Trump is ascendant with the youngest bloc of the electorate, even leading President Joe Biden in some surveys, as less-engaged young voters spurn Biden."

CNN "Biden races to enact new student loan forgiveness plan ahead of November"

Shaw Kenawe said...

So you’re saying young people are supporting Trump the Rapist? Interesting.

Les Carpenter said...

Polls are but a best guess with a margin of error. That and It is early yet, and that leaves lots of time for the republican insurrectionist and rapist to do more damage to his already criminal reputation.

Young people supporting trump is the result of delusional adults who should know better bulls**tting them with the very big lie.

Aware youth do NOT support trump the insurrectionist and rapist.

skudrunner said...

I didn't say it but Politico did. Maybe rich kids are smarter than we give them credit for and know that the statement trump was a convicted rapist is a lie. Despite Carroll's claims that Trump had raped her, they noted, the jury stopped short of saying he committed that particular offense.

Les Carpenter said...

You know, i think, what the judge said. The fact remains trump credibility sexually assaulted Carroll. Shaw has explained this before, and in more detail. But, i know, you believe the voice in your head telling you it's a lie.

I'll leave it there.

Grey One talks sass said...

skud, you know better by saying "Despite Carroll's claims that Trump had raped her, they noted, the jury stopped short of saying he committed that particular offense."

It doesn't matter if someone else said it first, you've been educated about the subject more than once and yet you chose to repeat the falsehoods. Shame on you for that.

In all reality all you are saying is the former loser not my president gurl couldn't get it up so had to use his fingers. Do you understand by claiming over and over there wasn't a rape you have him as lacking in the pants department? That he's so small he couldn't reach? That he had to improvise because of faulty equipment?

Wow, way to 'support' your favorite politician. And yes skud, your comments have yet to condemn anything Trump. You whine ad nauseum about Biden but have yet to say one bad thing - well, you did cut him to his knees with your implications that he's inadequate in the manhood department so there is that - about the former guy. I wonder why?

Skud, why do you keep ignoring what the judge said? Why? The judge in the civil case rightly claimed that what Trump did was, in fact, a rape.

SEXUAL ASSAULT INCLUDES RAPE. Trump is an adjudicated rapist.

You stubbornly resist that truth. I'm going to make a guess here and say that had this been adjudicated against a Democrat, say, Joe Biden, you'd be screaming RAPIST! at the top of your lungs.

For some reason, probably unknown to even yourself I imagine, you cannot and will not acknowledge the truth of what Trump is: A sexual assaulter/rapist.

And the Republican Party is hoping he will return to the WH. That's the Republican Party's legacy: Full endorsement and support of a rapist to lead America.

Dave Dubya said...

Kremlin agent -FJ doesn't realize it, but he actually complimented me with, You're all f-d in the head, Dave. You might actually believe that "social justice" is "just".

Clearly I struck a nerve by pointing out his lock-step, or goose-step, allegiance with MTG and the entire MAGA cult of white nationalists. (Yes, by his allegiance and support he IS one of them.)

And since no white Christian Nationalist demonstrates the least bit of actual Christian compassion for the sick, poor and the immigrant, Putinist -FJ fits in perfectly with them.

He also sides with every neo-Nazi in his his loyalty to Trump and scorn for democracy and truth.

And lest we forget, Kremlin agent -FJ also sides with the notorious antisemite Nick Fuentes, who his Fuhrer WELCOMED to Mar-a-Lago!

Fuentes says that when the America First movement takes power, all non-Christians will be executed: "They must be absolutely annihilated when we take power."
(Not f-d in the head and no complaint from -FJ.)

Nick Fuentes on his podcast 11-9-22: "There are too many nonwhite people in the country."
(Not f-d in the head and no complaint from -FJ.)

Nick Fuentes, friend of Marjorie Taylor Greene & Paul Gosar, taking the lead of MAGA Christian Nationalist hate club, unleashed his own rant telling Jews to "get out fuck out of America": "You serve the devil. You serve Satan. ... I piss on your Talmud."
(Not f-d in the head and no complaint from -FJ.)

Nick Fuentes on Truth Social: “I for one am glad that Putin is standing up to Washington DC. F*ck the State Department, f*ck the Pentagon, and f*ck NATO.”
(Not f-d in the head and no complaint from -FJ.)

White nationalist Nick Fuentes told his audience that the solution to the fact Republicans are in a minority and keep losing elections is to establish “a dictatorship.” "We need to take control of the media or take control of the government and force the people to believe what we believe or force them to play by our rules.”
(Not f-d in the head and no complaint from -FJ.)

“He (Fuentes) gets me.’

“Just a quick reminder for liberal Jews who voted to destroy America & Israel because you believed in false narratives! Let’s hope you learned from your mistake & make better choices moving forward! Happy New Year!”

“Any Jewish person that votes for Democrats hates their religion.”
(Also not f-d in the head and no complaint from -FJ.)

Some Republicans who found their conscience are now admitting that MAGA Republicans and their shill FJ are regurgitating RUSSIAN propaganda.

-FJ will not admit this, of course. Does anyone wonder why he sides with Putin and the MAGA cult, resents the truth, and resorts to adolescent insults?
