THE PEOPLE SPEAK - Crusaders nothing but hypocrites and fascists

U.S. Congressman Vance McAllister from Louisiana, conservative family values crusader, was revealed as another dime-a-dozen Republican hypocrite after videos were released of him kissing a female staffer, who wasn’t his wife. What was revealing was the staffer’s soon-to-be ex-husband’s remarks on CNN.

He asked McAllister during the campaign last year, “When did you get religious?” McAllister replied, “When I needed votes.”

Sinclair Lewis was perhaps the first to say, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.”

No group is more emblematic of that than the Republicans. They cry “Lord, Lord” to fool the faithful while lining their pockets and basically being un-American.

As for their supporters, you’d think people would’ve outgrown the need for tea parties and playing dress-up somewhere in elementary school. Apparently they haven’t. Says a lot about their psychological makeup.

I would suggest they put aluminum foil inside those tri-corner hats, but then they wouldn’t be able to hear God talking.

They can screech socialism, tyranny and oppression all they want, but what they want to turn America into is an abhorrent nightmare.

American evangelicals have turned countries like Uganda into laboratories by orchestrating the passing of laws which ostracize and criminalize segments of society.

They want to see what works and what doesn’t so they can duplicate it here.

America is not and was never intended to be a Christian nation.

The founding fathers these fascists purport to follow were mostly deists who strongly supported separation of church and state.

“Judeo-Christian” values is code talk for establishing theocratic laws.

So-called “patriot” pastors like Dan Fisher vote constantly for unconstitutional bills which promote theocracy. These people aren’t patriots, they’re hatriots.

Awhile back the media was aghast saying “are the culture wars back?” Newsflash: They never left.

“Social” conservatives have never given up on their dream of a theocratic takeover of America, and they’re ramping up their efforts to the Nth degree.

These seditionists must be exposed and they must be stopped.
