2016: The Year Republicans Admitted They Want the U.S. to be a Fascist, Christian Theocracy

What gets lost in the media’s obsession with all things Donald Trump is the fact that the alternative to him is Sen. Ted Cruz, someone who I think is far more dangerous than “The Donald.” As I’ve said plenty of times before, Cruz is basically everything bad about Trump – but even more radical.

At least with Trump you get a slight glimmer of common sense when it comes to health care and Social Security. Plus Trump isn’t exactly “Mr. Religious,” even if he’s pretending to be to pander for votes. However, Ted Cruz is a religious radical who has a history of putting himself and his own ambitions before anyone else, including his own political party and the country.

This is someone who’s so unpopular that he’s done what almost nobody in Washington has been able to do for years: he’s brought Democrats and Republicans together because both groups can’t stand him. But having these two men as the top two candidates for the GOP openly tells us what kind of country conservative voters want to turn this nation into: A fascist Christian theocracy.

Both of these men are essentially different types of fascists. While Trump is more the prototypical “dictator-type,” Cruz is what I call a religious fascist. He’s even said in the past that the only way to “save” the United States is to turn it into a theocracy. These are two men who are almost never honest, who’ve built the foundations of their campaigns on doing nothing more than pandering to hate, anger, bigotry and racism.

Even when they’re called out directly to their face on something they said that was unquestionably not true, they simply accuse the person calling them out of being dishonest, then continue to lie some more. Both individuals are completely impervious to being fact checked because neither one operates within a realm of reality where “truth” matters at all. Which works well for them because most of their supporters couldn’t care less about things like facts or reality.

These are people who simply want to be told what they want to hear. The 2016 election has shown us all that Republicans want this nation to be run as a fascist, Christian theocracy. They want a propagandist who tells them mythical stories created to do nothing more than play to their fantasies.

They want to be indoctrinated, told what to think and have the Bible rule over the Constitution. They want Muslims and immigrants (at least brown ones) out of the country. They want a “leader” who stands behind a podium preaching nationalism, hate and fear. Aside from President Obama’s race, a big reason why so many hate him is because he’s not an idiot. This president is someone who sees the bigger picture and seems to understand that we’re living in a world where your capacity to outthink your opposition is just as important as the size of your military.

Meanwhile, Republicans are sheep who respond to trigger words, simplified talking points and seem to believe that extremely complex problems are solved by solutions that sound like they came from the mind of a deranged 7-year-old Charlie Manson. Right now the country is at a precipice in time that history will look back upon as either the moment we all stood up against this wave of fascist Christianity that’s threatening to take over the country, or the moment we stayed home on election day and allowed it to happen.

I certainly hope that when future generations of Americans look back on the 2016 elections, this year will be defined by tens of millions of Americans rising up against the biggest fascist threat this country has faced since Adolf Hitler ruled over Nazi Germany.

  1. Future generations will look back on the 2016 elections? Hell! With Trump, he just may start WW III, and Cruz will try to bring about the Apocalypse. Both by full nuclear war. There may be no future generation.

    Reblogged this on The Practical Vegetarian Weblog and commented:
    The difference between Trump and Cruz is that Trump is a self-made business person is has made a fortune and Cruz is a professional politician. I worry less about Trump than Cruz because of this. Cruz would go along with the crazies and turn this country into a fascist theocracy if given the chance because he is an ideologue who really believes this crazy nonsense. Trump would not go along with the crazies for the simple reason that it would not be good for business. Instead of the “stop Trump” campaign, it should be more “stop Cruz.”

      “Self-made”? So he didn’t inherit his wealth from his father? Oh wait, yes he did. There is nothing “self-made” about Drumpf except maybe his insanity. Cruz is probably worse though. Fuck ’em both.

      • Mary Curtis says:

        Actually, at this point I am concerned about all of the candidates, Hillary included. I thought by this point, having sealed the nomination, Trump would “turn the corner” and settle down his language. He hasn’t, and in fact, he is getting worse. I frankly don’t know at this point if I will even vote, and I have voted in every Presidential election since 1972. The only person right now who I would consider is Bernie and I don’t know if he even stands a chance.

    The Way Ted Conducted his campaign, proves either he’s not a Christian or he doesn’t understand what it means to be one…
