Half the population has an IQ below 'average' - by definition.

No they don't?

SO you have been here since yesterday and have all of those recorded actions.

Like it was your job or something?

And even more amazing is how wonderful you are. AND gay too!

You certainly are turning my head with your political beliefs. I think it's the conciseness of your verbiage without losing focus on the important things, money, you, and The Trumpet.
Sounds romantic.

Oh, Silly, I wish I could believe that these people were not actors. Unfortunately, knowing the Triumph shtick, no, these people were real. They were Trump supporters who were punked.

Remember the Stanford Milgram Experiment? "obedience to authority and personal conscience" It is not a "left-right, liberal-conservative thing". There are Stalins, there are Hitlers. There are authoritarian people in every culture, just as there are authoritarian followers. Given an authoritarian leader as Trump portrays himself, he has authoritarian followers.

Here is John Dean (from Watergate fame)

These authoritarian leader types, who are typically men, will always have four clear characteristics or traits that distinguish them: They are dominating; they oppose equality; they desire personal power; and they are totally amoral. Donald Trump is a classic authoritarian leader.
... Trump’s pursuit of the presidency raises the question of how far a truly authoritarian leader can go in America.
Authoritarian followers, who are far more prevalent than leaders, can be characterized by their submissiveness to established authorities, a trait that is typically combined with a general aggressiveness toward other people. They are both men and women who tend to be highly conventional in their daily lives, yet they are easily submissive to authority and willing to work aggressively on behalf of such authority.

I wish I could laugh, but I can't. I'm horrified, but not surprised. The people in that video could be my neighbors, co-workers, fellow church goers, family members. I would not know it perhaps, until their personal conscience confronts authoritarian ideas that to them are either real or plausible. As was done in this video.

It reminds me of cult leaders and followers.

Growing up I always wondered how Germany could have gotten that way under Hitler. I now understand as I've never understood before, and it's no laughing matter.

For an interesting read by Dean, Donald Trump Is Entertaining But When Will It End?
