Considering he's backing The Seven Deadly Sins poster child, we might just be locked in a War for Heaven, and those who want Satan in charge have made their choice known.

You know, we shot Osama Bin Laden in the face and dumped him in the ocean for the same thing.

Just saying.
 
2022-10-03 8:24:16 AM  
I'm not saying that If either Flynn or Trump would spontaneously combust if they set foot in a church, because that sounds comically hyperbolic. I'm just saying I wouldn't bet against it.

Remind me again why this asshole isn't locked up in Gitmo?

It's interesting to me that the Christian nationalist crowd supports obvious grifters when their own freaking book tells them to look out for false prophets. Did they not read that part? Can they even read?

Conspiracy vs the United States, Insurrection and sedition. ==> 10 years federal prison, preferably hard labor. Thank you for playing.

And why isn't he behind bars for giving aid and comfort to the enemy?

That's a lot of words, let me guess. The religious nutbags are taking over again.

Because Trump pardoned him.

Yes really.

Someone Else's Alt: That's a lot of words, let me guess. The religious nutbags are taking over again.


They're trying to, but I think they're finding that more people have moved on and are moving on now that we aren't in the goddamn technological dark ages any more.

I'm assuming it was a lot easier to fool people into thinking a magic sky man did it, even a hundred years ago, and that it's a way harder sell now that we have modern science and the internet and junk.

There are still some gullible assholes who buy the whole thing but that's more a result of an insular family upbringing where your mom and dad were derpsticks, but even that must be getting harder since the kids can potentially see how full of shiat the whole thing is without even leaving the house.
 
2022-10-03 9:28:51 AM  
Cool, the moment he steps foot in a stand your ground state we're free to kill his ass. Anyone have an idea where he is now? Let's get this party started!

They sense it like an animal senses danger in the forest, which is why they're acting like cornered animals in a forest.

In this case the predators are time and common sense.

We should all strive for that kind of spontaneity, and if it doesn't come naturally, I say that we should all seek to bring it to fruition.

Also, the whole world is a church, if you want it to be.

Hey, remember when Donald Rumsfeld and the DoD held Bible-verse festooned Iraq briefings, and the White House talked about how the War on Terra was inspired by god, and the military (especially the Air Force) was basically taxpayer-funded Onward Christian Soldiers, and our own goddamned government had a report on creeping (white? Christian?) nationalism in its ranks but couldn't release that report because of the conservatives whose feelings it'd hurt - and then how basically no one (except the Loony Left) cared about any of it and people journalists would laugh and say it can't happen here?

Weaver95: Authoritarian christians don't seem to understand that they've already lost this fight.


Unfortunately, there's still enough of them with enough power to burn down an awful lot of our civilization before they're fully vanquished. They've already ruined virtually every government institution that was supposed to protect us from people like them.

And this guy was a general? I am pretty sure as nuts as he is and as cozy to Putin he is it must have been the Russian army.

Nah.
They've hit their hard deck upper limit on what they can reasonably accomplish. Going any further at this point will only accelerate their already inevitable decline.
This is it. Right now is as powerful as the authoritarian christian clergy will ever get. From this point on, it's all downhill for them.

Mass psychosis is a helluva drug. Not Flynn mind you, but the cultist following. Flynn is just a grifter like Trump, albeit probably more of a True BelieverTM in RWNJ matters.

Hey, leave satan out of this. Not only does he have an excellent Sandman spin-off series of comics, he seemed to do much less harm to people than the genocidal, punitive and petty biblical god who seems to have boundary issues considering how insistent Xtians are god really cares way too much about what you do in the bedroom with yr peener and who-haas.

Flynn is also busy parroting a literal doomsday cult in his speeches. Dude is farking insane.

Some of them can, but they ignore the parts that contradict their narrow worldview

It makes you wonder what Obama knew... He was the only single person he directly said to Trump "Do not hire this person, he has no business anywhere near power."

We know the public stuff about him... but goddamn, man. This guy is incredibly dangerous.

We worry about the guy who sticks up a 7/11 for drug money yet this guy roams around the country trying to foment revolution completely unscathed.

Something's pretty f*cked up.

Why aren't we investigating Charles Flynn's role in the January 6th insurrection? I know he got reassigned to command US Army Pacific, but many, including Colonel Earl G. Matthews, have accused Flynn of perjuring himself before Congress.

So I'm reading Cixin Liu's science fiction trilogy (Three Body Problem, etc) and finding it difficult to believe people would work for the end of the world much less make a religion of it. (I'm trying not to spoil too much)

And then this stuff reminds me, yes, those people exist. Yes, they would work for some made up bullshiat they fantasize in their heads about how the universe really is and happily kill everyone or end the planet over their delusions.

Isn't it an irony that if you were to kill all of them, you then become the bad guy. Really twisted game we've got going here.

You think they actually read the Bible and try to follow the guidance of Jesus? That is adorable!

Dear NBC,

Some of us have been banging a gong and shouting from the rooftops about the dangers of Christian Nationalists for decades now.  Nice of you to pop your head up out of the sand (in a hole full of money no doubt) and notice what the fark has been going on.

They've never been this weak and vulnerable.
Not in my lifetime. If you don't recognize what's right in front of you ...well, good luck out there.

Another failure of the weak Dept of Justice.  Flynn may have been pardoned for past crimes, but he's committing new ones.  If there was ever a clear cut case of a seditionist (something hard to pin down legally), he's one.
