This thread captures something significant I hadn't noticed - and which is especially creepy as an Israeli, knowing what sorts of people use this language. Generally, they are the sort of people you want to encounter at a distance, and through a scope.
They tend to have a very *vivid* idea about Biblical prophecies and want to bring them about, typically via some kind of plot that involves killing a whole lot of people.

These people tend to love Israel, in much the way that fishermen love fish.
They come in all shapes and sizes - I've encountered Jewish, Christian, and Muslim versions, and I'm sure other religions have their versions as well. But this one smells particularly like a Christian version, and a Dominionist one in particular.
For those who haven't met them, this is an apocalyptic sect that is very focused on the Revelation of St. John as the center of their faith, together with odd bits and pieces sewn together from the rest of the Bible.
The sorts of people who believe that the Rapture is the whole point, and so we need to do things like gather in the tribes of Israel so that the age of the Antichrist can begin and... well, I can't keep good track of it, it's like having a bad trip while reading the Voluspa.
But TL;DR, it's a sect that thinks the Apocalypse is the best thing that could possibly happen.

Oh, did I mention Mike Pence is a member? And that they've been systematically infiltrating the US armed forces, especially the USAF, for decades?
Because what could possibly go wrong with Apocalypse cultists straight out of a @cstross novel with direct access to strategic bombers and nuclear weapons?

Or writing the President's tweets?
But McElrath has a good argument that this is from a creepier group still: not American Dominionists, but Alexandr Dugin, the Russian fascist philosopher with very close ties to the Kremlin, early member of (I kid you not) the "National Bolshevik Front."
This movement has a rather fascinating set of views, advocating for (per Dugin) a "genuine, true, radically revolutionary and consistent, fascist fascism" in Russia, and a "return to pre-modernity." I believe this involves restoring serfdom, although I'm not sure.
But I would like to pose the question: If Alexandr Dugin, an overt fascist with close ties to Putin, is writing Trump's tweets on the eve of the summit, what does this mean for just how far Trump's loyalty to Putin goes?
