    Default Christofascism needs to be named and called out!

    Christofascism refers to use of the faith of Chritianity as a cover for totalitarian ideology. This radical phenomenon is embodied among American Christians today in the various Militia movements, White Supremacist, and Christian Identity movements, and where these radical, armed, and Christian racist groups overlap with the Pro-Life movement and the right wing of the American political landscape, including the fringes of the Republican party.

    Political typologies should make distinctions, rather than confusing them, and Christofascism is neither a loose nor an improvised concept. It should be employed sparingly and precisely. The indicated movements should be treated as Christofascist, first, because of their congruence with the defining characteristics of classic fascism, especially in its most historically-significant form--German National Socialism.

    Fascism is distinguished from the broader category of extreme right-wing politics by its willingness to defy public civility and openly violate the law. As such it represents a radical departure from the tradition of ultra-conservatism. The latter aims to preserve established social relations, through enforcement of law and reinforcement of authority. But the fascist organizations of Mussolini and Hitler, in their conquests of power, showed no reluctance to rupture peace and repudiate parliamentary and other institutions; the fascists employed terror against both the existing political structure and society at large.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    They are destroying our Democracy and have allowed a record number of Americans to die. We have to cut out the cancer in order to survive and we will prosper without the right wing. They need to have their own government and get the F out of the way of our progress.

    It's not fair to the real Christians to use such a name. What they are is simple fascists with warped ideas not found in any religious doctrine.

    No, that's just how the phonies use it. It's something legitimate followers of the doctrine have known since it was written in the Scriptures of Matthew. Many carry the name to deceive or have been misled by those that have. Here's something for the current state of things.

    Witnessing to All Nations
    At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, and many false prophets will arise and mislead many. Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.

    There is radical Islam just as there is Christofascism and they both have very distinct definitions apart from me religions they distort and hijack.

    I'm willing to pay for passage back to Bethlehem ... if they promise to stay there.

    Christianity is supposed to be about Jesus Christ. Unfortunately those "Christian" weirdos have hijacked it so much it is no longer recognizable.
    THAT IS AN ASTUTE OBSERVATION I EXPECT FROM YOU.
