The Intentional Destruction of Tikkun Olam

Dear Mort,

I’m an admirer of your common sense approach to handling tough problems.

Here’s mine:

Even after the last presidential election, I still have acquiesces who are blindly following the path to hell and proclaiming the righteousness of a conman.

They allow G-d’s works to fall into ruination while they live in a state of total confusion and denial.

These lost souls are intentionally destroying Tikkun Olam.

They mock the educated, the reverent and praise the stupid.

They display their prejudices as if they were trophies.

They are not in partnership with G-d.

They even refuse to help the less fortunate.

They cannot see or speak the truth.

They unrelentingly pursue evil.

They lie on top of a lie on a bed of lies proclaiming:

There was no insurrection on January 6, 2021;

The crowd at the Capitol building was Antifa dressed up as Trump supporters;

There’s no need to investigate the Insurrection because Donald Trump is still president; he will be back in the White House in August.

The election was rigged or stolen, just wait for the results of the Arizona audit;

Obama wasn’t born in the USA;

There is no lie too big or too small for them to parrot into my ears;

Trump was the best and the smartest president ever.

These sycophants have all the answers.

They blurt them out faster than I can think.

They have memorized their answers, as if they are reading off of a script.

They enjoy the destruction of:

our environment;

our democracy;

our alliances;

and the slaughter of our children with machine guns.

Everything they say or touch turns to shit.

Instead of building a better world, they tear it down.

Instead of performing good deeds they bring no honor to G-d’s sovereignty.

What should be done to these admirers of dictators, liars, cowards and scum?

How should I respond to their craziness?

Some of them claim not to be members of QAnon but I think they’re all card-carrying members.

Please help.

Dear American Citizen,

Many of my readers have posed the same questions.

And here is my response.

When they start spewing their crap tell them you’re a believer in tikkun olam

In mending the world, in fixing the world, in repairing the world, in making the world a better place.

Then look them in the eyes and say, “Fuck off!”

Believe me, you’ll feel better.
