(Editorial Comment from host RJ Evans on his American Heathen® radio show – Air Date 08/12/11)
About 5 years ago I was having a very spirited debate with the guy who built my home. Born and bred to be a Christian Nationalist, and far from knowledgeable on the Constitution, he raged mightily against the “liberal agenda”. He verbally trashed any possible idea of compromise and utterly refused to acknowledge that the Democratic Party could ever offer any sort of guidance on how to run the country. After arguing with him for about an hour, I finally decided to ask him the following question, “So, are you saying that the Republican Party should be the only political party allowed to govern?” For the first time in the very one-sided debate, he shut up. He wouldn’t even look at me. I asked him again, “Are you saying that the Republican Party should be the only political party allowed to govern the nation?” Still no answer. It was as if I had caught him red-handed with his hand in the cookie jar, trying to steal the last cookie. He was speechless. After a few moments of silence, he quickly changed the subject, deciding to move the conversation to something as trivial as possible. Nothing more was said.
Ladies and gentleman, I give you the autocratic mentality of the Christian Nationalist Party. I give you the real reason they will not compromise on anything! I give you the ammunition you need to silence any Christian Nationalist in a debate. Ask them, to their face, if they support a one party system of government… a Christian Nationalist Party form of government where no one can run for office unless they hold Christian Nationalist views and worship the christian god. What you will hear is total silence. Then, without so much as the skip of two or three heartbeats, and a sudden disengagement of your eye lock with them, they will change the subject. They have been caught, caught like the thief that they are trying to steal past the Constitution of the United States, the very document they claim to love so much. Their autocratic goals exposed, their plans laid bare for the whole world to see, they will quickly retreat back into the dirty, dank swamp from which they were born.
Much of what we are seeing from the Christian Nationalists today has been fermenting deep in the putrid swamp of bigotry, racism, and fear. What was once a fairly noble party, one that actually worked and played well with others for the most part, has devolved into one of the most vile, despicable, grotesque, and utterly autocratic renditions of toxic political sludge ever produced. In no small part, the brew masters of this filth are the purveyors of the greatest piss swill ever unleashed on mankind. The christian religion. The masters of totalitarian tyranny, christians of all denominations foment uncivil discourse, vilifying anyone and anything that may preclude them from stealing power away from humanity. Even the most quiet and demure renditions of christianity are simply waiting at the bottom of the religious cesspool for their due date, a day when they will follow their more toxic brethren in a geyser like explosion that will lay waste to the landscape of humanity.
As we have witnessed since the 2008 election, the Christian Nationalist Party has done everything in its power to seduce, cajole, wrangle, lie, cheat, steal, deface, slander, demoralize, polarize… They’ve done everything and anything to prevent this nation from moving forward under a Democratic president or Democratic congress. They are moving, any way they can, in the direction of a one party state, a theocratic plutocracy where no one can participate in the political or social arena without State approval. They want total control. And what of the Constitution? King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta. But, that didn’t stop him from discarding it a short time later. But, unlike the eventual ouster of King John, the Christian Nationalists won’t give way to the people so easily. They have made it abundantly clear that they will have no intention of relinquishing the throne they so desperately want to create, a throne that will figuratively be occupied by the myth of Jesus, but which will be physically occupied my a megalomania-cal despot.
In my opinion, the 2012 election will probably be the most important election in this nation’s history. We currently have a sitting President who has stumbled and blundered his way through his term by trying to compromise with Christian Nationalist terrorists. He has allowed himself to be maligned on every level, including his race and birthright, and with this upcoming election, he will most likely crumble and lose to a tyrannical, despotic, fascist powerhouse called the Christian Nationalist Party. At this time there seems to be no third-party option for consideration, as both the Democratic Party and the Christian Nationalist Party have effectively polarized the electorate. Time and again, the two parties have conspired to cultivate the myth that the electorate can only vote one of two ways. But, the truth of the matter is that more Americans are choosing to abandon traditional party favor, either withdrawing from casting their vote completely, or choosing to vote Independent. Now the most coveted of voter positions, both the Democratic and Christian Nationalist parties are courting the Independent voter. Unfortunately, while there are voters abandoning the ship of traditional party politics and grabbing the independent life-preserver, many more are preferring to jump ship and swim away from politics altogether. But, keep in mind that this is exactly what fuels the Christian Nationalist push for supremacy. The more voters they can scare away from the polls, the better. While they may have a small base, they know their base will produce the votes.
Ladies and Gentleman, the fringe, lunatic, bat-shit crazy Right has stacked the deck in their favor. They have scared away the vast majority of voters who actually have the potential to lower the boom on them. They have driven a stake deep into the heart of their perceived enemy, democracy, and they will continue their march to domination over everyone. Unless the American electorate grows a fucking spine by the 2012 election, our Democratic Republic will crumble under the jack boots of jesus jackals. As the sound of thundering foot steps echos in the distance, and the voices of Christian Nationalist intimidation reverberate off the walls of freedom and liberty, the silent majority of America are hastily abandoning the streets, closing their shutters, locking their doors, and hiding in their cellars, afraid to come out. Just like their brethren, the Democratic Party, they have chosen to surrender to their conqueror, shrinking from their responsibility to defend freedom and liberty for ALL. Only hoping to be granted mercy by the new king, they silently ignore the true fate that awaits them. I certainly hope they haven’t forgotten the Lord’s Prayer. Because that is what they will be reciting every single day before their mandatory weekly attendance at the local Christian Nationalist re-education classes. And woe unto anyone who doesn’t heed the call of “Every knee shall bow”. Think I’m joking? We’ll see.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
First the moralists came for the paintings…
And I said nothing because I didn’t own them.
Then they came for the sculptures…
And I said nothing because I didn’t care for art.
Then they came for the books and magazines…
And I said nothing because I didn’t read them.
Then they came for the burlesque shows…
And I said nothing because I didn’t visit those places.
Then they came for talk radio and racy TV shows…
And I said nothing because I didn’t like those programs.
Then they came for the rap albums and music videos…
And I said nothing because I didn’t care for them.
Then they came for the Internet…
And I said nothing because I didn’t visit “those” web sites.
Then they came for the rest of the things that they found objectionable…
And I still said nothing because I didn’t like those things either.
And then they came for the things that I DID like…
And by then there was nobody left to speak for me.
