A Look Back At My 2016 Article, “Republicans Can’t Be Christians — Sorry!”

Donald Trump and Franklin Graham

To be technically accurate, “Nazi” is a term that should be reserved for actual Nazis and their party, “National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” However Nazis and fascists seem largely the the same. Alt Right is a “new” US ideology, the term of which was coined by Richard Spencer, and which has been fairly successfully mainstreamed into Republican/white Christian nationalist politics. It’s generally viewed as a “nice” or “safe” term while still holding the basic tenants of fascists and Nazis. (Photo Credit: FreakTerrorizes)
Antifascists have existed as long as fascism, starting in Italy around 1919 to defend citizens from Mussolini’s Black Shirts. Over time, while always largely an ideology and never a formal, organized movement, they’ve been given a bad reputation thanks to the fringe right because they are the only people the fringe right are historically scared of, and the Alt Right responds only to fear and power. This is an antifascist holding an Antifa flag at a white nationalist demonstration as a gesture of defiance. “Not Here!” “Never Again!”
Super Christian Donald Trump with Super Hypocrite Pat Robertson
President Donald Trump, fearless leader of the evangelical Christians, looking ticked as he reportedly holds a Bible upside down for a photo op in front of a DC church while his goods, led by Barr, attacked, beat and gassed a crowd of Constitutionally legal peaceful protestors. The fact that he is unable to name a favorite Bible verse, let alone anything specific about the Bible, while he’s reportedly kept a copy of Mein Kampf on his nightstand for years is irrelevant to the now blatantly hypocritical Christians who care nothing of Jesus, but a hell of a lot about money and power. The Antichrist and his sheeple. Awesome.
