Christofascism on the rise: First lady Melania Trump opens President Donald Trump’s fascist rally with a prayer.
Trump held a campaign like rally at the Orlando-Melbourne International Airport in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday, February 18. First lady Melania Trump opened the rally by reciting the Lord’s Prayer.
The Brownshirts cheered as Dear Leader’s mail-order bride paid lip service to a God that does not exist.
The following is a transcript of the first lady’s remarks:
Thank you. Let us pray.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed is your name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespasses against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Good afternoon. It is my honor and great pleasure to stand here before you as the First Lady of the United States. The mid— the America we envision is one that works for all Americans, and where all Americans can work and succeed. A nation committed to a greater civility and unity between people from all sides of the political divide. I will always stay true to myself and be truthful to you, no matter what the opposition is saying about me.I will act in the best interest of all of you. I am committed to creating and supporting initiatives geared to my heart, which will have impacts on women and children all around the world.
My husband is creating a country of great safety and prosperity. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to introduce the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
“When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”
