    ex-intelligence official Malcolm Nance describes process of turning trump supporters into a cult

    Al Franken has a podcast, and he and Nance talk for an hour, about trump and Russians largely. It's the first time I've heard someone describe the brainwashing of trump supporters and turning them into a blindly unquestioning cult as an intentional act, rather than just 'something that happened' as a mystery.

    They get into that topic somewhat from a compliment for trump by Franken, when Franken says trump does have a real talent, that he saw things in how to manipulate the American people that Franken had not seen - I've made a similar comment.

    Franken mentions watching the first trump-Hillary debate thinking trump was a disaster, and felt relieved it had wiped out trump's chances to win, and was surprised when many did not see it that way. They talk about the cult issues - as well as the Russian hacking and how Nance suspects trump is a longtime Russian asset.

    Nance talks a bit about this grooming of a cult as longtime Russian procedure they'd developed for developing support from populations of nations they controlled. Franken refers to it as being 'completely tribal', gaining complete loyalty by telling 40% their tribe will win and be in power, the other 60% don't matter. It fits a lot of what we see from trump and his cult.

    Imagine the once strong on national defense republicans now wearing shirts that read I'd rather be russian than a democrat. And they call the left crazy.

    In all of my years on this earth I have never seen anything like this. It seems the more trump lies the more his base loves him. Is it because of the hatred he constantly spits at others? Is it because he constantly bashes democrats. Is it because he makes fun of people with disabilities. Is it because he speaks poorly of real war heroes? Disrespects gold star families. Trashes and smashes people who want to come to america? Blames everyone but himself for his failures? Is it because he plays victim all the time? Is it because he is trying to destroy every institution in america?

    Whatever it is his base loves him. Absolutely disgusting.

    It's simpler than that; they're too ****ing stupid and mentally challenged to figure stuff out for themselves. All truth comes from Trump, and that, as far as they are concerned, is all that matters.

    And you haven't even listened to Nance's explanation yet

    Russia and cult talk...... the poor democrats really don't know how to beat the president in 2020
    All the usual things they do to republicans don't work.

    First they said Trump supporters were deplorable. Now they say they all are in a cult.
    Is it any wonder why the democratic party will suffer large losses in the 2020 election.
    WHAT have the democrats done for the American people in the last 3 years? Nothing.
    The have pushed Trump hate and that is it. Nothing else!!

    That's actually how Nance describes the process, as creating a sort of bubble of information around people which gets them to not use their own information, but blindly only listen to the information they're given instead.

    His description fits what we see well; we're simply shocked to see it work on Americans. It could sound a bit wild, then you remember things like Bannon and Cambridge Analytica and what they did (in other articles I linked recently no one looked at...) Doubt anyone will listen to Nance either, but it's linked for them. And really, the articles were even better.

    Mass hypnosis and Jonestown spring to mind. A little extreme, perhaps, but not too far off the mark.

    Except, that was really very different - one person seducing others, and it was less of a blind cult than people think. They made people 'drink the koolaid' at gunpoint... This is a quite different process.

    Yes, except in this case the 'gunpoint' is stoking up fear of non-existent 'socialism' (communism in the minds of the cult). The sheer number of conservatives on this place who think Sanders is a communist infiltrator shows just how well propaganda works if one is gullible enough.
