Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Me golden idol is tarnished” edition

Oh dear.

Golden statue of Trump at CPAC ridiculed online
The Hill ^ | 2/26/2021 | Celine Castronuovo

A golden statue of former President Trump was unveiled late Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Fla., quickly prompting ridicule from social media users, many of whom compared it to the Old Testament account of the Golden Calf. Video showed the statue being rolled out through hallways at the annual right-wing conference. The structure includes a golden figure of Trump wearing a suit jacket and red tie, paired with American-flag shorts and flip flops. Several people stopped to pose with the statue, with one woman saying, “Awesome,” and another person commenting, “That is so cool.” Another person can then be heard in the video starting to chant, “four more years.” Despite the praise from attendees, social media users argued that the statue showed some conservatives’ unhealthy obsession with Trump, with one Twitter user jokingly writing, “I asked CPAC if they were afraid of offending God with a golden Trump statue and they said ‘Trump is God.'”

Jealousy is a disorder;)

So you’re saying that the people who made the statue are jealous of The Darnold, or the people laughing at it are?
You need to clarify a bit.
Let’s see that statue, shall we?

Oops – wrong one.  Sorry.

You know – for a bunch of people who proclaim that they’re christians, you don’t seem to know much about the bible.

Only his hair is golden on the statue. It’s just more fake news.

Right. We need to get our news from reliable sources like you.

I’ll bet that someone on his staff who has actually READ the bible will have to explain the whole  “Moses coming down from the mountain” thing to him.

Oh, and that’s “FPDJT”,as in “Former president” to you.

Kinda looks like IDJIT, doesn’t it?
To: sodpoodle

I wonder whose bright idea it was to make a golden statue of Trump?Kind of creepy-worshippy, IMO.

And I do like Trump.

Its a bit of humor not intended to be worshipped. The left are humorless robots and a few on the right like to feign outrage to show how ‘moral’ they are.

Majority of Trump Voters Say They Will Follow Him to Another Party and Abandon the GOP
MenRec ^ | 02/25/21 | Rusty
Posted on 2/25/2021, 8:05:25 AM by rustyweiss74A poll released this past weekend indicates a majority – nearly 50 percent – of Trump voters would follow the former President to a new party and abandon the GOP.The Suffolk University/USA TODAY survey indicates 46 percent of those who voted for Donald Trump in 2020 would join the third party if he were to go that route.“If there’s a civil war in the Republican Party, the voters who backed Donald Trump in November’s election are ready to choose sides,” USA Today writes. “Behind Trump.”By contrast, 27 percent of Trump voters said they would stick with the GOP while another 27 percent said they were, as of yet, undecided.*****************

Would you?

To: rustyweiss74

Yes, I would. The GOP has abandoned me and most of what I believe in. The GOP would rather go along to get along than fight for its beliefs.

IMO, this would guarantee the Democrats would control both houses of Congress and the White House for the next 20 years.

I’ve already abandoned the GOP, so I guess the answer is an enthusiastic YES.

It’s also how he won, because he was NOT the usual old RINO, Republican BS.

You are precisely and profoundly right. Trump was elected because of that and he dared to expose the GOP for the fraud that it is.

It’s also why he lost re-election, the House, and the Senate.
Carry on.

“No, we will take over the Republican Party. Resistance is futile.”

Pipe dreams. I’ve been here over 23 years, and we’ve been saying that here on FR for that long. It’s never going to happen, because the GOP, like the swamp, is too entrenched, too corrupt, and too self-serving. They will never give up power. You can say you’ll get rid of all the Rinos, but sooner or later, at some point in time, they all become Rinos.

Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne’s former staffer kills himself outside her house Fox 4 Television Dallas ^ | February 11, 2021 | Lynnanne Nguyen Posted on 2/19/2021, 4:05:04 PM by L.A.Justice

IRVING, Texas – Irving police are investigating what led a former staffer of Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne to commit suicide outside her home Wednesday afternoon.

The congresswoman and others were inside the home at the time. Police said they heard a single gunshot, then saw the man lying on the ground outside, and called 911.

Van Duyne released a statement Thursday acknowledging she’s known the man for years, and he’s been to her home several times for holiday parties and get-togethers.

But why he did this is still unknown.

*******************

Police is not sure how he got into the gated community where the GOP congresswoman lives…

Guy had no mental problems…

My condolences to the family of the gentleman…

Why did he kill himself in front of her house? Why not some other location? Secret obsession? Who knows?

Congresswoman is divorced with two kids…

For the sake of fuck.

He was her Campaign Communications Director.
He helped her Trump-humping ass eke out a totally undeserved win of a seat in the Texas Congress over Candace Valenzuela (whose boots Van Duyne is not worthy to kiss)  – spending 7.9 million dollars to do so.
..
She said no.
He had served his purpose and was of no further use to her.
.
She probably didn’t think he would make such a dramatic reply.

See you good people next Monday.

    The golden statue was hilarious. Trust the GOP to make a liberal meme come true.

    • Tommy T says:

      The Freeper who said ” The left are humorless robots” must not have noticed that most lefties thought that it was hilarious.

      • Ten Bears says:

        Maybe it’s because I’m no ‘leftie’ but ahhh … I would have never given thought to casting a golden fat cat as a fat golden calf. [Insert siderbar]

        And leave me just this one opportunity to point out that ‘just his hair was golden’ is pretty foking … ahhh, humorous: I’ve been around cattle all my life and everyone of ’em had hair everywhere (just about). ~

        I read about it somewhere when I was young and impressionable. Didn’t find it credible but, none-the-less, casting a golden idol, are you kidding?
