Where Are American Christians as Trump’s Demagoguery Rivals Hitler’s?

Trump’s lies and demagoguery about the migrant “caravan” allegedly posing a grave danger to the security of the United States as it marches toward Texas are so transparently separated from reality and exposed for the nonsense they are, I won’t bother to write an independent analysis. Here are two of the plethora of exposures:

I once more ask the question: where in God’s name are America’s Christian leaders as Trump’s rhetoric of lies, slander, racism, and xenophobia reaches Hitlerian proportions? Yes, I mean that comparison with Hitler to be taken seriously, not as inflated to make a point. Trump now almost daily talks about immigrants as Hitler talked about the Jews.

How did Hitler and the Nazis come to power in Germany? We’re watching the process unfold right in front of our eyes. These so-called Christians have elected a lying, racist, misogynistic, sexist, xenophobic, adulterous cowardly bully as President of the United States—and the more morally debased he shows himself to be, the more his “Christian” fans love him.

They are the mirror image of supposedly civilized German Christians screaming their hysterical approval as Hitler unleashed volley after volley of denunciations of Jews as “the enemy of the people” who were out to destroy Germany.

How can any person who calls themselves a Christian support Donald Trump? Those who are doing so, far from serving the Christian faith, have revealed what putrid souls they really are. Calling themselves Christians has become a crutch for leading lives of wanton immorality, not a spur to be better.

Trump’s constituents are morally and intellectually corrupt, and they have produced a morally and intellectually corrupt Republican Party that elected a morally and intellectually corrupt Donald Trump.

We have always known people like this existed. We never knew they constituted about 40 percent of the population.

Listen to Trump’s recent speeches in which he keeps exponentially expanding the lies and the demagoguery.  And ask yourself this question: where are the leaders of America’s mainstream religious denominations as this debased President takes us further and further into the sewer? Nowhere to be found.
