This poison always ends in tears. Always.

And while white nationalism may have always had violence at its core, the same cannot necessarily be said of Christian nationalism — until now. If constructing a gallows to hang Mike Pence could be consistent with hoisting a sign that reads “Jesus Saves,” it’s because a critical mass of conservative white evangelicals have come to conflate ideas of manifest destiny and American essentialism with the idea of America as a nation consecrated by God. In this framing, the Great Replacement subverts the will of God. And the will of God must be defended at any and all costs.

5. I agree, they are radical extremists hijacking the conservative label

I am very conservative in my views and I can tell you my views do not align at all with their views. It starts when you are taught to accept nonsense and moves from there. It keenly underscores the lack of civics education and the lack of any education in philosophy and ethics.

They all belong in prison. The leadership encouraging this rabble deserve much more than prison.
