After Georgia and Michigan certified the presidential vote, Arizona moved one step closer to certification, and Pennsylvania likely to certify as early as Tuesday, President Donald Trump grudgingly allowed the transition process to formally begin on Monday, but vowing that he would never concede, like the character Jason Nesmith in Galaxy Quest: “Never give up. Never surrender.”

Trump’s cult followers are now vowing “By Grapthar’s hammer, you shall be avenged!”


Arizona’s most embarrassing congressman, Rep. Paul Gosar, decided to go a different route in choosing an analogy.

Gosar suggested the Trump cult would be like the Imperial Japanese soldier Hiroo Onoda, who remained in the jungle on Lubang Island near Luzon, in the Philippines, until 1974 because he did not believe that the war had ended, and Teruo Nakamura, an Amis aborigine in the Takasago Volunteer Unit of the Imperial Japanese Army stationed on Morotai Island in Indonesia, who was left for dead after the island was overrun by the Allies in September 1944 in the Battle of Morotai. Nakamura was the last known Japanese holdout to surrender after the end of hostilities in 1945.

So according to Rep. Gosar, Trump cult members will remain blindly loyal to their “Imperial Emperor” (a demigod), and will deny the reality that the election (war) is lost. That’s a sad, lonely existence.

If only they would disappear into the jungle on a remote island somewhere, never to be heard from again.
