Why we should fear the far right


Well, maybe fear is the wrong word. But I suppose it sounds better then saying we should lock them up as traitors…

Because, you see, the far right of politics is also pretty much the far right of christianity. In other words, the christian version of the taliban. With their own perverted view of the bible, the constiution, of reality…

And indeed- their allegiance is NOT to the united states or to the constiutions, nor to any of the ideals this nation was not only founded but built on.

Their only true allegiance is to their god. Based overwhelmingly on an interpretation of the bible that falls far outside the real of the bulk of christianity.

I- and all Americans- indeed all citizens of this world are, or should be tired of those that pervert the ideals presented by religions for their own narrow goals.

Yes, many of our founding fathers where christians to some degree or another. Many were also deists. Overwhelmingly they were people who took the good from multiple religions, and left the hate and intolerance behind. Something that is the very opposite of todays far right.

The GOP is slowly learning the lesson. This loud but small minority has some power in terms of their ability to allow their ignorant enclaves to elect members to the house. But they are quickly learning their lesson that this is the extent of their power. That they can’t control debates at even the state level, much less the national one unless they are given more power then they have earned.

So yes- we must at least watch the far right if not deal with them in some way. I am increasingly alarmed by their network of “news” and “information” sites that deal heavily with lies and unsubstantiated claims. With fear and hate.

These are the people that are not only an onstacle to rational discussions but who are fomenting violence for their own narrow minded goals.

If history is any example the people that think they, and they only are “gods” chosen ones are the ones who are the most dangerous…

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    The link to christianity is a good one. I’ve used this before in another blog, but like the churches which are getting increasingly restrictive as to their definition and membership, so are the far-right Republicans. And where the old christianity might ask, “what would Jesus do?” the new christianity asks, “What would OUR Jesus do?” A huge difference.

    • Indeed. I am not anti-religious. And know many, many people for whom relgion improves their lives and that of those around them. But I also know the opposite.

      And I find it sadly ironic that the christian extremists (or the jewish extremists who insist on building “settlements” across the israelli border, are the same people most up in arms about muslim extremists.

      Pot…meet kettle.

      Religion can be an enlightening thing. OR it can be used to justify horrors. And we are increasingly moving towards the latter

    Biblicial Constitutionalists.
    The ‘true believers’.
    And I don’t think that fear is too strong a word.
    Rick Santorum rode them to his moderate success and if it hadn’t been for Mitt Romneys money advantage, Santorum woulld have been the nominee. And given credibility to this movement.
    That should scare anyone who DOES believe in a united United States and the Constitution.
    Great post.
