I appreciated how authentic Hillary Clinton was about being pure evil.
I guess America wasn’t ready for that – but she didn’t shy away from her zealous hatred for Life, Beauty and Order.
She was truly a bright woman, and an influential figure in politics for decades, purposefully driven by her desire to serve the absolute black consuming void of metaphysical evil we call Satan.
If anyone deserved the honor of ushering America into madness, darkness and despair, it was her – not Joe Biden, who is at best a mediocre scumball.
This is just the most repulsive thing.
President Donald Trump’s appeal to religious conservatives is a cornerstone of his political identity. But Joe Biden is a different kind of foe than Trump has faced before: one who makes faith a central part of his persona — often literally wearing it on his sleeve.
In fact, Biden’s practice of carrying a rosary that belonged to his late son Beau caught the attention of one of his Democratic presidential rivals when the two were awaiting a debate last year. Standing backstage next to Biden, Pete Buttigieg asked the lifelong Catholic about the prayer beads and fell into a conversation about loss, family and faith.
Biden “often talks about the comfort and meaning that he’s drawn from faith,” said Buttigieg, Biden’s primary rival-turned-endorser. “That’s something that will resonate with Americans a lot more than usual.”
A sodomite, who promotes sodomy to prepubescent boys, steps forward to testify about how pious he is.
It is satire come to life.
Democrats are betting on Biden’s evident comfort with faith as a powerful point of contrast with Trump. The faith-focused work underway within Biden’s campaign suggests that, while he may not significantly undercut the president’s popularity among white evangelicals, he could chip away at Trump’s base by appealing to pockets of conservative faithful.
It’s a notable contrast with Hillary Clinton, who lost in 2016 after a campaign that largely sidelined her Methodist faith.
As Trump promises to be evangelicals’ “champion” on policy, Biden is making a less transactional play for religious support, betting that a beliefs-focused brand will be more persuasive than agreement on an agenda.
“For faith and values voters,” McCarthy said, Biden’s spiritual authenticity is “the quality they’re looking for.” They might disagree on a particular issue, he added, but can connect with Biden through a shared worldview.
That often may depend on the issue in question. The presumptive nominee’s shift leftward on federal funding for abortions is a potential liability with evangelicals as well as many Catholics, for example.
But Biden has used moral language and quoted Pope Francis when discussing other issues that many Catholics do support, such as immigration reform, expanding health care access and tackling climate change.
“My faith teaches me that we should be a nation that not only accepts the truth of the climate crisis, but leads the world in addressing it,” Biden wrote in a Religion News Service editorial.
Biden could make “small but meaningful gains” among white evangelicals, whose support for Trump has fluctuated by as many as 15 points in recent polls, by contrasting himself as “the type of person who’s going to speak to our better angels,” DuBois said.
The campaign has yet to match the denomination-level outreach that Obama’s 2008 team deployed, beyond releasing a specific agenda aimed at fellow Catholics, but insiders say that’s by design. McCarthy said the campaign bakes religious elements into other programs, holding faith-focused calls with LGBTQ, Asian American, African American, Latino, Jewish and Muslim communities, among other constituencies.
As for evangelicals, McCarthy said the campaign is targeting three subgroups that may be more on the fence: Latinos, white suburban women and youth, whom surveys have shown to lean less conservative.
It’s a strategy that aims for marginal gains with evangelicals.
Probably, evangelicals will vote for him because they feel Donald Trump is a mean person. Women, in particular.
Donald Trump can use a fear of a black planet to convince a few, I’m sure, and hopefully he does that.
But as things stand right now, even if we don’t do vote by mail, Trump is going to have some serious problems winning the election.
