Apparently, says Politico, the residents of Greenville, Nowth Kelana took offense with Donald J. Trump at his use of “the Lord’s name” last month during his Lockerup rally. Several times the messenger of God Trump hath said Goddamn, you see. Yes, other than the lockerupsendherback call-and-response chant from the geek chorus, all we heard from the Greenville faithful was this: goddamn. Nothing about his personal and public and sexual misconduct, just that he said Goddamn.
The Lord’s name? Actually, if you read Hebrew (trying not to laugh here) you’ll notice that the text does not use the word Lord but the proper name Yahveh. The English convention is to translate that as Lord and to translate El or the plural Elohim as God. God is not the name of God, as is Yaveh or El or Elohim; Adonai or even El Shaddai.
So since his holy Trumpness, blessed be his name, used an English euphemism, a word having no etymological connection with any Hebrew or Semitic divine name, he finally managed to piss off the MAGAmorons of America. Almighty ignorance be praised.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if this misunderstanding was the sharp edge of a wedge that finally split that spawn of Satan from his adoring and apocalyptic followers?
