"Most American Christians reject the politics of conquest and division that this movement represents."— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 5, 2022
Here's my interview with @kathsstewart, author of "The Power Worshippers," about Christian nationalism pic.twitter.com/Yzp9W0svuc
I’m not bothered by “Christian nationalism” or “White Christian nationalism.”
If I were to take one of these tests that sociologists are using to define these terms, I would probably score in the 99th percentile. I have always been pro-White, but that isn’t the sum of my identity.
There are millions of White people who are worthless cultural degenerates and a major theme of this website has always been covering and resisting all of the various manifestations of our cultural decline. I look at White people who have been infected and twisted by liberalism, modernism and antiracism as being like carriers of the Bubonic Plague. Some of them are irredeemable while others can come back from the abyss. There has always been a moral, cultural and spiritual side of our struggle.
We love our own people. We’re not indifferent to losing them to the black hole at the center of liberal “mainstream” culture. This is one of the most powerful drivers of our engagement in politics. We’ve seen people we love and charming places we love transformed by our cultural elites in ways that have made them alien to us. It is not just racial decline. It is also moral and cultural decline in which people remain biologically White, but a shell of themselves. The “trans” craze which is being peddled to children who are encouraged to mutilate their genitals is the most spectacular example of the phenomena.
I think here of the polite, gentle, friendly, easy going, good natured culture of the South which is so bound up with our evangelical Protestant form of Christianity. There are parts of the South which are geographically Southern like Charlottesville, but which have ceased to be Southern. We can’t love those places like we used to. They have been changed in a negative way. It is not progress. It is creeping decadence and decline. We’re all seeing it and reacting against the same problem although how we articulate and understand the cause of this varies.
White Nationalists would say these people have had their minds poisoned and degraded by Jewish networks which dominate the news media, entertainment industry and academia. There is a lot of truth to this. Those people and institutions are indeed the core of the problem. Add the qualifiers of atheist, liberal, modernist, antiracist, urban and cosmopolitan and you can get even more specific about who is dumping the toxic waste into our culture from their perches in big cities and college towns.
“A year ago, calling someone a Christian nationalist was an insult.
The phrase was in the air after Jan. 6 rioters had come to the Capitol wielding Christian iconography and speaking of their cause as a religious crusade. Crosses and bibles and banners citing scripture were held aloft by a crowd calling to hang Mike Pence and overthrow a democratic election.
In the aftermath, as many horrified Republicans scrambled to condemn the violence, evangelical pastors decried “Christian nationalism” as deeply dangerous—especially in response to experts and reporters who noted that support for Trumpian extremism had become “inextricable from some parts of white evangelical power in America.”
Al Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, called Christian nationalism “idolatrous” and pushed back on the idea that evangelical Christianity was linked to what had happened at the Capitol.
“Nationalism is always a clear and present danger,” he wrote a week after the insurrection. But linking it to “American evangelical Christianity,” he said, was an unfair “accusation.”
By this summer, Mohler had updated his thinking.
Speaking on his podcast on June 15, the theologian said: “We have the left routinely speaking of me and of others as Christian nationalists, as if we’re supposed to be running from that.” He added: “I’m not about to run from that.” …
It also includes violent extremists willing to tear down democratic processes to bring about their vision of a white Christian nation. And while the vast majority of people who could be categorized as Christian nationalists fall into the first two camps, experts worry that the idea of a self-identified label could bring different kinds of Christian nationalists more closely together. …
Right now, there’s some debate as to whether “Christo-fascism” more accurately describes the danger posed by this increasingly emboldened segment of the Christian right—or if, conversely, it lets self-identifying Christian nationalists (and other evangelical Christians) off the hook for tacitly supporting extremism. …”
IMO, “Christofascism” can’t come soon enough.
White identity must be defended. Christianity must be defended. Republicanism must be defended. I see myself as being at the intersection of the defense of all three. I want to live under a free government among my own people bounded by our traditional Christian culture.
It is now “radical” to say this. I am an enthusiastic defender and champion of the authority and legitimacy of the White Christian social order against the corrosive acid of modern social liberalism.
Note: What do you call this demon that is so clearly possessing these people? They are still White, but they are like zombies with broken, troubled souls.
