Trump the Anti-Christ? A better fit than even I thought.

Post by Majin Gojira » 2020-02-11 08:37pm

Wasn't sure this News and Politics, SLM, or not, so I'm putting it here to be safe. Mods, feel free to move it as you see fit.

For a while now, partly as a joke, I've been saying that Trump is the best Anti-Christ figure we've had yet. The Maga Hats as "The Mark fo the Beast" was a real clincher in my mind.

But then I found this article. and WHOO Boy, did I underestimate the lineup.

The author admits that "predictions and prophecies can be like horoscopes: they can appear to apply to anyone" and some points are a bit of a stretch IMO, but it's still amazing how well he fits as an Anti-Christ figure.

The irony of it all is staggering.

And a little creepy.

Mostly because, since Revelations was talking about Nero and Rome, Trump lining up with one of the most reviled Roman Emperors does not bode well.

Wasn't the Anti Christ supposed to unite all people's of the world eventually? Doesn't seem like Trump, he can't even get on well with Canada.

True.

The World's Shittiest Mob Boss is also the World's Shittiest Anti-Christ.
"I know its easy to be defeatist here because nothing has seemingly reigned Trump in so far. But I will say this: every asshole succeeds until finally, they don't. Again, 18 months before he resigned, Nixon had a sky-high approval rating of 67%. Harvey Weinstein was winning Oscars until one day, he definitely wasn't."-John Oliver

"Trump admirers like @TuckerCarlson describe themselves as "nationalist." But their nationalism attaches not to the multiracial American nation... but to a multinational white race with a capital in Moscow"-David Frum

Funnily enough, after an argument with Mom, was just thinking this SAME THING, and how pissed she'd be when I point it out.

Time to Share this to her FB page :twisted:

Well from what I've read he's not even capable of doing that, some people seem to actually like him, I dunno why but...

Because a human's sense of fairness is mitigated by it being more acutely aware of losing things than gaining them.
