Christofascists wanted someone like Pence – an evangelical extremist – in the White House.
Right-wing evangelical extremists have been on a mission to overtake the United States government for decades, and now that we have a useful idiot in charge of the nuclear codes and a evangelical extremist Vice President, the threat of a Quiverfull nation is one giant step closer to achieving success.
Kieryn Darkwater identifies as transgender and is a former evangelical, and recently wrote about growing up in the Quiverfull movement (radical right-wing Christian extremists) or as Darkwater refers to them “Christofacists.”
“I grew up in the far-right evangelical conservative (Christofascist) movement; specifically, I was homeschooled and my parents were part of a subculture called Quiverfull, whose aim is to outbreed everyone for Jesus. I spent my teen years being a political activist. I was taught by every pastor I encountered that it was our job as Christians to outbreed the secularists (anyone not a far-right evangelical Protestant) and take over the government through sheer numbers. I was part of TeenPact, Generation Joshua and my local Teenage Republicans (TARS).”
“I watched the Tea Party takeover and was surprised no one saw it coming. After all, this was part of the plan. Trump being elected is also part of the plan, although not Trump specifically; the true goal is Pence.”
Christian extremists want to ban any and all abortion – no matter the reason. They want to overturn reproductive rights protections and overturn court decisions protecting against racial, gender and LGBT discrimination.
“The only way to do this is to infiltrate the government,” Darkwater explained, “We were sneaky and polite Trojan horses. We had an agenda. Yes, even as 15-year-olds.”
The goal of a Christian nation is nothing new; but, until now, no radical Christian extremist has been able to work their way into the White House. Donald Trump is a useful idiot with no core values, “They know Trump is easily manipulated and will change his mind with the wind if it makes him feel more powerful and famous. Trump couldn’t care less about policy, a fact he’s made quite obvious. The Right has given a tyrant power and fame; he will do whatever they want him to do in order to keep it,” Darkwater asserted.
If Pence and Republican legislators tell Trump to sign on the dotted line, he will. Right-wing extremists see this as their shining moment and perfect opportunity to overtake the government.
“Those of us who didn’t leave the far Right are being elected to federal positions or are taking over states and cities,” Darkwater wrote. “With Pence in office, even the reasonable-seeming incumbents — who have been and are still at the mercy of the Tea Party – are growing more bold in their attempts to further the Christofascist agenda: To Take Back The Country For Christ.”
For those who are paying attention: Right-wing extremists and Vladimir Putin are working overtime to overtake the American government.
