'True Believers' = Scary
I recall, some years back, having a conversation with someone regarding politics. We were discussing the President at that time... and who that was does not matter right now. What does matter is that persons reaction to the discussion.
They literally would not admit their man had ever done anything wrong in his entire life. Nothing. He hadn't even farted in church once.
I asked "If this man was filmed stalking out of the white house, witnessed raping a child and then murdering the parents, would you admit THEN that he'd done something wrong?"
No answer. The person was a true believer, and in her world that president was the closest thing to God there was. She simply could not conceive her idol ever doing anything wrong, so she refused to even consider thinking about his actions.
It was scary as hell.... not speaking to her..... but knowing there are many, many people just like her out there.
They are the people that will hold the doors on the cattle cars open, and smile as they do it.
