Using the term “the Chosen One” sounds to some traditions as if DJT is par with a Messiah, namely Jesus.
Are Trump & his radical, dominionist (white) evangelicals putting Trump on the same level as Son of God? Yes.
This is blasphemy & matches some prophecy, not the good stuff.

So. Let’s talk about Rick Perry calling Donald Trump “the chosen one” and discuss how American evangelicals became a white identity doomsday cult that threatens our safety and the very nature of reality. 1/

Haley & Perry say Trump is the chosen one b/c God doesn’t make mistakes. This is the same heresy that said slavery & Jim Crow were God’s will. If whatever happens is predestined by God, then ppl don’t have to be responsible for their actions. It’s dangerous to neglect free will.
