I watched the election coverage with apprehension and dread, like most lovers of liberty and truth I expected a red tide of fascism and lies to wash away the bulwarks of democracy.
But the midterms turned out to be a rejection of Trump and his infernal MAGA movement, most of the conspiracy theorists and proponents of the Big Lie that he foisted on the Republican Party went down to ignoble defeat. Against all odd the Democrats retained control of the Senate, and there’s still a chance they might keep control of the House as well.
Jon Voight, one of Trump’s most vociferous defenders wasn’t too happy with the midterms:
“It’s a dark web. A dark world. But not for long. A new light will emerge. The one president who understood truths .. Trump will return to the presidency. Allow Trump to rebuild our soil and our land so we can rise to our glory.”
I agree with Voight’s first statement, it’s indeed a dark world, because dark entities like Trump often rule the world before they are brought down by the forces of goodness and light.
Voight perceives Trump as a new light. The Bible says that Satan masquerades as an angel of light, and I’m not surprised that an angry old white man sees the dark sociopath as a new light.
“The one president who understands truths.” Are you freaking kidding me? Trump is a pathological liar whose administration was marred by tens of thousands of lies and misleading claims. Trump is infamous for disseminating the Big Lie that he won the election.
Voight is wrong, dead wrong, about Trump being an ambassador of light, and he is dead wrong about Trump returning to the presidency. The midterms have conclusively demonstrated that the electorate is sick and tired of Trump’s lies and conspiracy theories, and he will be humiliated if he runs again for president.
