Marianne Williamson Is Even Nuttier Than You Thought

After a contentious part two of NBC’s first Democratic debate on Thursday, one might think that California Sen. Kamala Harris or South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg would be the most Google-searched candidate of the night. But that distinction actually went to spiritual guru Marianne Williamson, and for good reason.
Williamson, polling at one percent and standing at the far edge of the debate stage, prefers the terms “best-selling author” and “internationally acclaimed lecturer” over “spiritual guru” and “Oprah’s BFF,” but the most accurate term to describe her might just be “nutty.”
Surprising Democratic candidates and viewers alike, Williamson declared during the debate that her first action as president would be to phone the prime minister of New Zealand. Instead of “ending gun violence,” “passing a middle class tax cut,” or “fighting climate change,” Williamson would let PM Jacinda Ardern know that if she thought her island country was the “best place in the world for a child to grow up,” she is “so on.”
When asked about the first issue they'd tackle if elected president, Marianne Williamson said she'd call New Zealand's prime minister to say "the United States of America is going to be the best place in the world for a child to grow up" https://cnn.it/3209Kzm

 Williamson’s answer was unconventional to say the least. But for anyone who’s been following the self-described “thought leader” for the last few years (or scrolling through her Twitter feed for the last few minutes), her comments Thursday were nothing out of the ordinary.
The cliched description of politics as “war” is nothing new to American voters. Williamson has a different metaphor in mind:
Just beneath the surface, this isn't politics it's black magic. Entirely a psychic battle. Use your shield of Virtue and your sword of Truth

Shields and swords, however, are far from her most creative imagery.
Your body is merely your space station from whence you beam your love to the universe.Don't just relate to the station; relate to the beams.

The metaphors don’t end there. Many of Williamson’s more colorful tweets reference her signature message — that America needs more love and less hate.
Humanity needs a mental shower: we need to wash off all prejudices of the 20th Century and stand naked beneath the waters of eternal Truths.

You're a lamp; God is the electricity. You're a faucet; God is the water. You're a human; God is the divine within you. ALLOW the flow.

Despite the Twitter craziness, Williamson’s policy positions aren’t far out of line from the rest of the Democratic candidates: she backs the Green New Dealsupports Medicare for All and has even promised reparations for slavery. Her chances of winning the nomination may still be a long shot, but if nothing else, she’s been entertaining along the way.
