Looks like the GOP is going to be forced to make a choice. Either they can win elections by moving away from Trumpism or they can win primaries by moving towards Trumpism.

Good luck with that...

What is Trumpism exactly?
I can’t do that question justice, but, among other things it is an attitude of extreme antipathy towards all authority(i.e., elites) in science, medicine, and politics. It is the promotion of conspiracism as the default mode of thinking. (The talking points in his phone call to Georgia were born of QAnon, 4chan, etc.) It is extreme grievance politics, where Trump is a victim, and since his followers believe, they too are the victims. It is adhering to the position that nothing Trump says must ever be questioned. In the latter case, it is much like a cult. It is the position that Trump=the state, and that anybody who disagrees with Trump is an enemy of America.

Trump succeeded in burning down the Republican party. It's been his goal all along to reform it into the Trump party. They'll never recover.

I think you did great justice to the question. I commend your explanation and feel as thought you hit a grand slam.

Well said.

I was going to just say it is a cult. And that's about it. The most pervasive cult, in the worst possible sense, at the highest level, america has ever seen. Complete with everything, excluding the Kool-aid.



So far...

Read Red's post then turn on the news right now 1-6-21. That's Trumpism and it needs to be eradicated from our nation.
So how does one eradicate Trumpism? Is Trumpism a new thing? Or just some that has a new face? How does it differ from Nationalism?
