I didn't know what you meant specifically with regard to your strange way of referring to Biden.

I don’t call people names. I write articles explaining my views for those interested in reading them. I’ve written several articles on the different likely motives of Trump’s supporters.

One of those causes of his support is indeed that he turned the Republican Party into a cult of personality. Lots of Trump’s supporters indirectly worship him as an instrument of God. You sound like one of those when you praise God for the recent Supreme Court decision in favour of religious liberties. I take it you’d compare Trump to Cyrus the Great. So you think God uses Trump’s derangement to bring about Christian ends.

I don’t respect that kind of Christianity or political trolling. Not even a little bit.

But happy Thanksgiving Day to you. I’m glad to see Trump made someone happy. He did the opposite to around seven billion people, but don’t let that unpopularity get to you. You have your Bible, your God, and your golden calf. You’d interpret that unpopularity as persecution and be thankful for the world’s putting you in a more Christ-like position.

Knowledge condemns. Art redeems. I learned that as an artistic writer who did a doctorate in philosophy. We should try to see the dark comedy in all things.
