Doomsday cult unsure if constant apocalyptic rhetoric sticking with voters, workshops ways to make it more apocalyptic

New York Times: “House Republican leaders would like everyone to know that the nation is in crisis. There is an economic crisis, they say, with rising prices and overly generous unemployment benefits; a national security crisis; a border security crisis, with its attendant homeland security crisis, humanitarian crisis, and public health crisis; and a separate energy crisis. Pressed Tuesday on whether the nation is really so beleaguered, the No. 2 Republican in the House, Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana, thought of still more crises: anti-Semitism in the Democratic ranks, ‘yet another crisis,’ he asserted, and a labor shortage crisis. ‘Unfortunately they’re all real,’ he said, capping a 25-minute news conference in which the word ‘crisis’ was used once a minute, ‘and they’re all being caused by President Biden’s actions.'”

“As Americans groggily emerge from their pandemic-driven isolation, they could be forgiven for not seeing the situation as quite so dire. They might also be a little confused about which of the many outrages truly needs their focus: the border, perhaps, but what about Dr. Anthony S. Fauci and the Wuhan lab leak theory, the teaching of critical race theory in the nation’s schools, the fact that some schools are not fully reopened, Representative Ilhan Omar, or all those transgender athletes competing in high school sports? But for divided House Republicans, outrage may be the tie that binds – at least their leaders hope so. ‘Look, our main crisis is we’re not the majority – that’s our top crisis,’ said Representative Tom Cole, Republican of Oklahoma… The idea is that with Democrats in control of the White House, House and Senate, next year’s midterm elections will be a referendum on one-party control, not on Republican governing plans, said Mr. Cole, a former chairman of the House Republicans’ campaign arm. The Republicans, at least this early in the political cycle, need to seed a sense of instability, overreach and fear, he said.”
