Did You See Frank Schaeffer's Amazing Truth-Telling Without Giving a Damn Moment on Today's Edition of 'Politics Nation'?

I am often very critical of how the mainstream news media frames the issues in such a way as to maintain the lie that "both sides do it", and somehow both conservatives and liberals are equally culpable for the crises which have befallen the United States in the Age of Obama.

Such a claim, is of course, a lie.

There are a few brave souls who are willing to have a CBGB moment, do their set, throw the mic down, and not give a damn about the consequences.

On today's edition of Al Sharpton's Politics Nation, Frank Schaeffer, author of Why I am an Atheist Who Believes God, told the unvarnished, unapologetic, unrefined truth about the White Right, its Christian Dominionist base, the plutocrats, and how the Tea Party GOP is a radical and racist organization which hates Barack Obama so much that they are willing to destroy the United States in order to advance their political goals.

I would suggest watching Schaeffer's interview before it is thrown down the memory hole. He lit the match, poured the gasoline, and burned the place down.

Any other gems of writing or information to share about the recent Hobby Lobby theocrats victory or any other matter of concern?

That is not the first time Schaeffer has said that. He has consistently pointed this out since 2009 or 2010.

I need to read some of his work. This is the first time I have heard of him. Frankly, I was surprised he got to go on TV and tell the truth. I hope that he didn't leave them so shook that the offer will no longer be in play.

The White Right has constructed a narrative of persecution and oppression for its members. This is legitimating terrorism and violence. The Christian Fundamentalists and the gun nut racists are going to start killing people...on a scale that we have not seen in recent years.

Schaeffer is the go to guy for a reality check. Bottom line, the Kochs et. al. have utter contempt for Joe 6 pack, they own SCOTUS and the House, they've mobilized a brown shirted mob, and they're agenda looks like Tammany on meth. Lets hope reaction is countered with action.

Thanks for sharing this. I'm intrigued by Schaeffer's statement that those approached by the religious right didn't have to believe it, they just have to say it (right to life/pro-lfe, as if the alternative was the woman dying) . As if words don't have power. As if some how just saying it to get a vote doesn't doesn't have consequences.
