Fittingly, it was the CBS comedian Stephen Colbert who first suggested that MAGA is a death cult.
And Colbert made that fateful prediction seven full days before election day in 2020.
“Alright children of MAGA: Put on your Nikes, fill your thermos with Kool-Aid and go vote,” Colbert opined on October 27, 2020. “Then, I promise, we all board the spaceships to the comet. Herman Cain, we’ll see you soon.”
But the prospects of self-deluded Trump supporters going full-bore Capitol siege-style on an unsuspecting public has law enforcement plenty worried.
The Department of Homeland Security issued a national terrorism bulletin Wednesday warning of the lingering potential for violence from people motivated by antigovernment sentiment after President Joe Biden’s election.

“Leave lone” as the say in “The Croix.” Don’t take him on.
