Is the Republican Party a 'cult'? | The Tylt
Republicans are sticking by President Trump in the impeachment trial. Democrats and some Republicans who have broken rank with Trump say the GOP is engaged in a cover-up on Trump's behalf. Lev Parnas, one of the key figures at the center of the Ukraine scandal, compared President Trump to a "cult leader." The evidence shows Trump tried to manipulate Ukraine into helping him gain an advantage in the 2020 election. Republicans say the opposite is true. They believe it is actually Democrats who are trying to unseat a legitimate president and it is up to Republicans to defend Trump.
Is the Republican Party a 'cult'?
Some longtime Republicans are leaving because the GOP refuses to put country before party. These days, they seem more interested in owning the libs by lining up behind Trump instead of standing for conservative values.
Some longtime Republicans are calling out their fellow party members for abandoning their values.
Some stalwart conservatives, like National Review senior editor Jay Nordlinger, describes the Republican party under Trump as a cult. They are mindlessly following Trump despite his clearly erratic behavior.
Republicans see themselves as defending a legitimate president who has been attacked by the Democrats since day one. Impeachment is only the latest in a series of attacks designed to subvert the will of the American people.
Republicans say they are not engaging in a cover-up, they are actually defending America's institutions from Democrats.
Trump's supporters think he is delivering on exactly what he promised.
