Letter: No one actually thinks Trump was cheated, do they?

By Letter to the Editor on January 2, 2021.

Dear editor,

I seriously doubt most of Donald Trump’s ardent supporters truly believe that, as they adamantly insist, he won the election but was cheated from his victory due to (not little but) massive electoral fraud – a claim they cannot factually support.

Just the loss on its own seems to be proof enough that a vast ballot-fraud conspiracy had occurred. Meanwhile, they’ll vehemently deny that any form of electoral fraud may have unjustly put Trump into the White House four years ago.

To me, it’s mind-boggling and scary.

Might it be that the said group of Trump supporters consciously or subconsciously believe that he must remain in office for some perceived greater good – notably to save America and make it great again – regardless of his democratically-decided election loss, and all those in the majority who voted against Trump (which should not at all be a surprise) can frankly go suck on it?

It may be a case of that perhaps most dangerous of ideologies: the ends justify the means.

As a believer in Christ’s unmistakable miracles, what I find far more disturbing than Donald Trump’s ridiculously over-stoked fan base, are the strong supporters who consider themselves to be Christian.                           
The Biblical Jesus was unquestionably the opposite of the president’s character; he was all about compassion, pacifism and absolute charity. He clearly would not tolerate such superfluous wealth as the hoarding of tens of billions of dollars while so many others went hungry and homeless.                           
While many true Christians have rejected Trump’s presidency, regardless of his tempting conservative politics (e.g. his Pro-life professions), this very vocal and politically active ‘Christian’ element lauds Trump.
Apparently, so very angered by Democratic Party social liberalism, they promote, even praise, the figurative devil.                           
Their apparent blindness to Trump being contrary to Christ’s teachings makes it seem to me they’ve sacrificed Jesus’s fundamentals on the altar of unyielding hard-conservative politics.                           
Perhaps worst of all, they make very bad examples of the faith, especially to young impressionable observers.
