It took me a long time to understand this but they're literally the Sith. They only pay lip service to things like "family values" or the "sanctity of life" as their policies have proven they couldn't give two shits less about any life form that isn't a human embryo, and even then it's iffy. The only thing these people care about is power, and, something I'm missing. Like you see shit in Star Wars and think, man, that is so unrealistic how could any imperial officer be willing to put up with that shit just to be an evil pawn? And yet there they are.
Your mistake was in assuming that they have genuine values or principles. This administration has at least done one good thing which is put to bed that myth. They are willing to back the sleaziest, most corrupt asshole possible if they think they're "winning" or some stupid shit. Stop seeing them as reasonable people. Start looking at them all as Sith. Then you will understand why right wingers act the way they do. It's especially hilarious to me that they would follow or pretend to follow Jesus. Hitler was at least honest about this. It must absolutely pain them so to see something that disgusts them and that they hate so thoroughly being the object of worship. I can only imagine this is what creates that level of self hate and disgust at themselves, because deep down inside they all despise Jesus and everything he stood for, which I'm sure they pretend to flagellate themselves over.
I never understood the self hate before either, but now I do. Now I absolutely understand exactly why it is that Evangelicals all talk about being guilty in the way they do, and the disgust and self hate they feel and the way they talk about Jesus. It's because they each every single last one of them privately worships at the altar of money, and blood, and hate, and war. Mercy, compassion, love, holding wealthy elites and corruption in contempt, these are things they actively despise. They worship greed and fanatical hatred as virtues and it makes them feel guilty to admit this. It's part of why the Gospels aren't even taught in many of these churches. See this is something I bet a lot of people on the left don't know, which is that the Gospels--you know, that super important defining feature of Christianity said to be the words of Jesus Himself to his disciples--is simply glossed over or outright ignored in these right wing Evangelical fucktard congregations. It's why they find it so much easier to worship at the altar of Ayn Rand, because they quite simply don't give a shit about that part and it makes them feel guilty that they don't while they prattle on about Romans and Leviticus.
To really understand them you have to understand this is the party of Mike Pence, and Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz. It is not just the oligarch from NYC. They are almost all just as absolutely slimy and it's just that Trump is kind of like that embarrassing child of the wealthy family who humiliates the rest while they're in polite company and trying to not talk about how they're all a bunch of treasonous whores making payoffs to porn stars to hide their adultery, a generation of vipers who think they can even bribe God with a couple of kickbacks while still making sure to invest in stocks in hell. When you understand this about them, you will understand the Republican party, and you will also understand why some embarrassed Conservatives have looked on in horrified bewilderment because a few of those had at least the pretense of having something akin to that thing called "morals"
