The perfect answer to "God Made Trump" video is "God Made a Dictator"

Originally published at: The perfect answer to "God Made Trump" video is "God Made a Dictator" - Boing Boing


What is with the wholesale misrepresentation of basically everything about him?

“…wake up before dawn, fix this country, work all day, fight the Marxists, eat supper, then go to the Oval Office and stay past midnight at a meeting of the heads of state.”

Um, what? Is it ‘owning the libs’ to do that, or do they think he’s secretly hard at work and the perpetually golfing, scatterbrained, functionally illiterate jackass on perpetual display is just a mask?


But somehow God got Trump instead.


The idea of a leader who works tirelessly for the people and sacrifices all personal pleasure is a standard propaganda trope for dictators and authoritarians. A Narendra Modi fanboy once tried it here on the BBS.


I’m still not convinced the original video was genuinely pro-Trump. Too much of the over-the-top stuff, like the part about Melania, sound like snark. In another world it’d be considered satire but it seems likely to me that narcissist Donny heard it and took it at face value. Has anyone tracked down the video’s origin.

ah so god and satan were having yet another Job /dʒoʊb/ contest. So to decide who is a proper worthy soul, satan whips up trump as a test. If you follow trump then god knows yer a loser and no heaven for you! …makes more sense than all the evangelical malarky for sucking onto trump. (spread the good word to your great uncle in Iowa! he flunked the rather obvious test)




Oh, yeah, I get that. It’s just so obviously not true of Trump. Same thing with the paintings of him as incredibly ripped. There’s the imaginary hard-working Superman, and there’s the actual person…trying to represent the latter as the former just - to my mind at least - calls attention to the disparity. But I’ve never understood any of his appeal, so.

The bs is meant to fortify their hold on their shit-for-brains base.

It’s less than 11 months to the election. We need to start seeing more ads like this from the Dems.

The narrator, a deepfaked version of the late Paul Harvey (an authoritarian creep)

It would have been more authentic if they tossed in a pitch for a mattress or hardware store.

ETA: all of these bits on von Clownstick are pastiches of a famous Paul Harvey speech.


And along the way he awarded Medals of Freedom to three golfers.


Wow, Christopher Guest hosted Weekend Update? That’s like a dream fan casting. Slightly before my time, I guess.


Geeze, I don’t even recognize him, he’s so young.and corporate looking.

Why do I, an atheist anarchist-communist, know more about Christianity than supposed Christians?

You don’t need to make anything up, the anti-Trump warning is in the Bible. The relevant part of the bible is 1 Samuel 8

Israel Asks for a King

8 When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as Israel’s leaders. 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not follow his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice.

4 So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. 5 They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”

6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”

10 Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. 11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”

19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.”

21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the Lord. 22 The Lord answered, “Listen to them and give them a king.”

Then Samuel said to the Israelites, “Everyone go back to your own town.”
