“The Pentagon is TOTALLY missing the key villain in this wretched drama … the Mothership of what is known as ‘Fundamentalist Christian Nationalism’ … This twisted and tortured form of Christianity loathes absolutely nothing more than American democracy and wants to replace it with its own sectarian, weaponized version of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”— MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein, 2021

    I am sure MIkey would consider Lee Greenwood’s song “God Bless the USA” as a form of Christian Nationalism!

    “During the past decade, Military Religious Freedom Foundation founder and president Mikey Weinstein has been a vocal advocate for the separation of church and state in the military.

    But according to an Air Force Times examination of MRFF tax filings, what Weinstein pays himself for running MRFF is well more than the typical top salaries at most nonprofits, military-related or otherwise.

    In 2012, Weinstein received total compensation worth $273,355 — about 47 percent of all money MRFF raised through contributions and grants that year, according to IRS filings accessed on the nonprofit transparency website GuideStar.Weinstein votes on his own salary as part of a three-member board that is smaller than the five-member board Charity Navigator recommends for nonprofits. And MRFF counts him — a paid employee — as an independent voting board member, an apparent violation of IRS rules.”

    Thanks for your hard work and fight against religious extremists of all stripes. In my mind, there is little difference between Christian fundamentalists and the Taliban. They want to bring back a time when people of color and LGBT folks could be beaten and lynched just for existing. We can’t afford to let these people serve in the military.

    I have been hearing for some years that these fanatics have been infiltrating our military and police departments all over the country. It scares me.

    If Mikey (what adult make still allows himself to be called Mikey?) had a shred of integrity he and his organization claim, he’d be asking why the one person who has the ultimate responsibility to secure Capitol Hill failed to do so. That one person is her royal highness Nancy Pelosi. The Capitol police don’t do anything without the go ahead from the sergeant at arms, ( a political appointee) and the sergeant at arms doesn’t do anything without permission from the speaker of the House. There was 20,000 national Guardsmen ready and available for crowd control but Pelosi and the D.C. Mayor decided against having them, even though they were well aware of a heightened threat level. In other words, those very sane people that Mikey and Co. are slandering were the best people to prevent the Jan 6th riots. The whole religious extremist/nationalist talking point is a cover story for failed Democrat leadership and the real reason House security was breeched. Why is it, that a year later that none of the people arrested on Jan 6th have been charged with insurrection? Not only that, but two of the people at the epicenter of the riot haven’t been charged with anything and have barely been investigated? But the Christans in the military are to blame!

    OK Allen,
    Calm down, take your meds! I think you’re conveniently forgetting the CDR In Chief’s words, “we’re going to march to the capital – Ill be there with you – you’ve got to fight like hell or you’re not going to have a country left!” And Guliani’s “Trial by Combat!” and Mo Brook’s “start taking names and kicking ass!”

    And how ’bout your boy Charles Flynn’s refusal to call the guard in or relay the significance of the attack on the capital? And then Drumpf promoting that treasonous prick to four star and putting him in charge of the Pacific Command! Really? And less we forget, Drumpf himself delaying tactics and watching it all unfold on TV – his own kids, et al. beseeching him to tell the insurrectionists to stand down and go home! He encouraged it the treasonous bastard! This was a crowd shouting, “hang Mike Pence!” Remember that? Drumpf himself put his own Vice President’s life in danger!

    He killed in excess of 600,000 Americans through his mishandling of the pandemic! Remember – “inject disinfectant?”

    It’s funny how you deflect blame away from those that committed the crime to 3rd parties without mentioning your own party’s stupidity and complicity!

    Like blaming a bank robbery on the bank employees! You fucking knucklehead! The United States is rapidly becoming a 3rd world country because of people like you that can’t see beyond the end of your own nose! The reason a year on, people haven’t been charged with insurrection is because 1. insurrection is a harder case to prove legally (near impossible), 2. they ARE going to jail (in other words, being punished for their crimes, and 3. your deluded orange man-baby idol promoted it thinking he was going to be able to remain in office by stopping the vote count and turning the election over to a Trumplican Congress!

    Democratic leadership is the real reason House security was breached? Really? You really need to take your meds! You mean, the imbeciles that breached the capital are not culpable? Let me see if I got what you’re saying, “I break into a bank, beat a couple of security guards, threaten to hang the bank vice president and it’s their fault for not having more security guards? Maybe you took too many meds! “Wasn’t my fault! I was just touring the bank!”

    These were mostly Christian nationalists that stormed the capital! You know, the same people that think the creator of the Universe needs help in bringing about the Biblical end times. The same nationalists that have infiltrated our military and can’t fight their way out of a wet paper bag! Biggest bunch of pussies on the planet!

    The only End Times you fuckers are going to bring about is the end of Democracy and this Union we call the United States!

    We already have nut jobs in Congress that say Sandy Hook never happened and trolled a survivor because of people like you. You know, the same bitch that claimed COVID vaccinations were akin to the Holocaust!

    They obviously didn’t expect the events as they unfolded but lets blame them! Look at the capital now – see any beefed up security? And what about your man-baby Drumpf sending federal troops to Portland to “protect federal buildings!” Seems like I remember the capital building being a federal building! Hmmm, odd that he wouldn’t want to protect the very seat of Government!

    Your idolatry of the biggest loser to hold the office of the President is going to kill this country. It’ll be your kids and grand kids that bear the burden! Why do you think Billionaires are buying up New Zealand and other “safe haven” parts of the world? To get away from folks like you that are bringing this country down!

    Remember that wall your boy said he was going to put up? All 47 miles of it to the tune of $11 billion of diverted defense budget money?

    Protestantism in this country is nothing more than a political extension of Nationalistic Classical Liberal hegemonic war mongers. Religion – you can’t start a war without it! Churches in this country should be taxed!

    Tell your Q boys and girls that John Kennedy Jr. is dead and he ain’t coming back! He flew himself, his wife, and sister-in-law into the ocean owing to spatial disorientation. You know, kind of like what you have! And you’re right! The earth IS flat in the spot where he connected with the ocean!

    Go take your meds!
