“Be afraid. Be very afraid” 3

The Ghost of a Flea c.1819-20 William Blake “He saw a horrible grim figure, ‘scaly, speckled, very awful” wrote John Varley

‘As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods;
They kill us for their sport.’
Shakespeare’s ‘King Lear’ Act 4 Scene1: 38-9

Don J Trump is no god, but sadly is regarded as one by millions of his fellow Americans – a man, greatly admired or respected’ –

DJT once promoted a post claiming he is “heaven sent” and suggesting Obama “kicked” Jesus out of the US in a string of tweets just days after Christmas 2019.

He then went on to retweet praise for himself, including one post from January 2018 with a picture of a man who appears to be Jesus Christ and a caption saying: “Obama kicked me out. Trump invited me back.”

“I truly believe this man was heaven sent in order to save and protect the most gracious, benevolent, and in turn, prosperous country ever,” the caption to the post said, referring to the president.

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….

….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..


Horbowy, head of a local chapter of a pro-Trump motorcycle club “My mother started crying. She comes from Pentecostal background, and she started speaking in tongues. I haven’t heard her speak in tongues in years,” he said. “I thought, look at my president! He’s establishing the Lord’s kingdom in the world.”

Did he feel that conflicted with the Gospel of John, where Jesus said “My kingdom is not of this world”?


“I believe it’s like Ephesians 6: 10-19,” said Horbowy. “I believe this is a president who wears the full armor of God.” But one of those verses – verse 12 – says explicitly that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood”, but against spiritual enemies. “Well,” Horbowy said. “He’s fearless.”
