There is so many delusional people in the United States today that it is difficult to pick a most delusional faction of the populace. Is it members of the GOP who insist they had nothing to do with the rise of Trump? Members of the GOP who still think Marco Rubio will become the GOP nominee? Voters who believe Ted Cruz wouldn’t strangle a puppy on camera if it got him the nomination? Progressives who apparently think the Tea Party and the House Freedom Caucus are on to something and claim they will sit out the election if HRC wins the nomination, refusing to acknowledge that another Clinton in the White House would be better than the modern GOP having control of every branch of government for a few years? Pro-lifers who honestly believe Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts out of the trunk of their car to the highest bidder? Gun owners who seriously believe the authors of the Bill of Rights would agree that the private ownership of an assault rifle is a right, not a privilege? Citizens that truly believe we are living in a post-racial society, even after being smacked in the face with the crime that is the poisoning of Flint?
Just when I think it is impossible to choose a winner, Ed Brayton rescues me, drawing my attention to indeed, the most delusion segment of the population, hands down.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your hysterical overreaction of the day. In an article on Pat Robertson’s CBN website, unhinged anti-gay bigot Brian Camenker of MassResistance says that Christians today are being treated just like the Jews were in Nazi Germany because they’re being “demonized.”
Some say American Christians are paranoid, that they’re feeling targeted and persecuted. But is it possible America is facing a growing anti-Christian agenda?
Some on the frontline of the culture wars have responded with a resounding “yes.” They feel it up close and personal – right in their faces.
“I’m particularly sensitive to that because I’m Jewish,” Brian Camenker, with Mass Resistance, told CBN News.
“I saw what happened to Jews in the 1930s and 40s and much of that same thing is happening to Christians now,” he said. “There’s an organized movement to demonize Christians.”
Maggie Gallagher, with the American Principles Project, agreed.
“What we’re seeing very clearly is an effort to target them [Christians] legally when possible and then to humiliate or deprive them of social respect,” she said.
I’m honestly speechless. Thanks Ed.
