It’s time for a rant. This non-white, non-Christian immigrant from India is fed up with the lecturing and hectoring from would-be leaders of the Republican Party. The self-proclaimed party of patriots. Party of the Constitution. Party that claims to honor the founding fathers. It’s just gaslighting garbage.
About four weeks ago, former national security advisor Michael Flynn delivered remarks at a “Reawaken America” tour event at the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. The former military man and self-described patriot faced a cheering crowd and made this strident statement: “So if we are going to have one nation under God, which we must, we have to have one religion.” He then repeated himself: “One nation under God and one religion under God, right? All of us working together.” His message was a crowd pleaser. When other nations establish religions, whether Sharia law or anything else, Americans tend to recoil. It’s the fever dream talk of an Ayatollah. But the Flynn crowd cheered.
