So when the most “patriotic” Americans drop any pretense of wanting to live in a free, pluralistic society, their movement is beyond bankrupt. In fact, it’s a Trump Atlantic City casino at this point.
This is Michael Flynn—who was the actual U.S. national security adviser for a brief time—speaking at the latest Reawaken America event and openly advocating for a society built solely on the values and precepts of one religion. And I don’t think he’s talking about Dudeism, man.
Watch this horror show, if you can:
FLYNN: “And they’re talking about the United States of America, talking about the United States of America. Because when Matthew mentioned it in the Bible, he wasn’t talking about the physical ground that he was on, he was talking about something in the distance. So if we are going to have one nation under God, which we must, we have to have one religion — one nation under God and one religion under God, right? All of us together, working together.”
Has he read the Constitution? Because if he has, he sure as shit didn’t understand it.
We are a nation that was founded on the promise of a secular government. Full stop. Thomas Jefferson would have purple-nurpled this dorkwad till he was rockin’ saucer-sized Grimace nips.
In the 18th century, when the Constitution was adopted, our nation understood the perils of establishing a state religion or applying religious tests for those who hold public office. The 18th fucking century! Today, we’re far more religiously diverse than we were in 1787. Flynn wants to shove a genie back into a bottle it’s never lived in before.
But, hey, this seems to be the direction these anti-American yahoos want to take our country in. Needless to say, if we don’t stop them, America as we knew it is gone.
It made comedian Sarah Silverman say, “THIS IS FUCKING BRILLIANT,” and prompted author Stephen King to shout “Pulitzer Prize!!!” (on Twitter, that is). What is it?
