The current Republican Party in the United States is the new ugly face of homophobic, xenophobic and anti-women extremism in the Western developed nations.
The United States, under the current authoritarian leadership of Donald Trump, the homophobe sociopath Mike Pence, and the general white Christian tenets of the majority of State Republican parties, are espousing extremist Christian hate ideologies that, in fact, are diminishing citizen protection laws while working to regress America back to a 21st century post-Confederate dystopia!
We would think Christians in America today would be horrified at the idea of their chosen politicians working with the new promoters of white nationalist fascism. In fact, Christians have historically claimed that their own Christian scriptures are the philosophical and historical basis for America's political liberties.
Yet a very real social breakdown is in play in our supposedly secular America under the new Trump / Republican Party regime.
Just look at history. Christians, Christian churches, and Christian institutions have had little trouble working with fascist governments, hate organizations, and authoritarian political parties.
Just as some Christians find inspiration in their traditions and scriptures for promoting individual liberty, others can find equally strong and valid inspiration in the same traditions and scriptures for the need for common action, attacking modernism, and a strong social hierarchy.
In reality, Christianity and Islam have very similar historical roots
As a religion, Christianity is clearly pliable and can be molded by hate and gullibility to be compatible with cultural and social fascism - not unlike the Nazi regime in Hitler's Germany, the Vatican under Mussolini, or, by extreme example, the Taliban / ISIS Islamic fascism of today.
However, in modern America the social and economic failures of the American Dream have now replaced Jews with Muslim Arabs, except in the anti-Semitic minds of American neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Regardless, such ignorant rage is a modern form of hate addiction, probably originating from child abuse, possibly pedophilia, or simply dysfunctional family modeling.
America's Regressive Republicanism
That said, we are now seeing the same rationalizations happening in modern America, seen through the delusional scapegoating of foreigners taking US jobs or rapists coming in from Mexico to go after America’s white women.
So who are the modern American leaders espousing this sick new American evangelical fascism?
For one, VP Mike Pence is a fervent Christian supremacist who has passed numerous laws in the state of Indiana to repress women, the LGBT community, and Muslim citizens. Clearly, Pence is a dangerous serial homophobe with a deranged God complex.
And today, under the wannabe despotic regime of the vile Donald Trump, we are ominously seeing dangerous new appointments into positions of domestic legal policing and global military power of incompetent ideologues who are unabashed Christian supremacists.
The stage is set.
Sane Christians and US citizens who want to curtail this growing elite Christian police state must now speak out against these new neofascist Christian warning signs in the new Trump minority America - who believe they have a mandate from God to save themselves from the evil “liberal hordes.”
