Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said that you are entitled to your own opinions, but not to you own facts. To which the Christian right replies “Hold my holy wine.” Christian con man Lance Wallnau ludicrously claims that the Unite the Right rally was a liberal false flag because there’s never been a white supremacy movement in America. Seriously.
“That was sheer manipulated news cycles,” Wallnau said. “There is no white supremacist movement in the United States and the proof of it is that only two dozen people showed up. By the way, there never was a white supremacist movement in the United States. And if you want to really drive Democrats crazy, the KKK and Jim Crow laws did have a history in the United States, but they were all in Democratic states.”
“So what does that tell you?” he asked. “That tells you that a makeover has been done politically so that the Republicans and the Christians are being smeared by a spirit of leviathan to look as though they’re the right-wing extremists.”
“Unite the Right, I believe, was organized by the left,” Wallnau stated. “I believe Unite the Right was organized by the left in order to get all of the left-wing activists funded … The protest is theater … So what you had was a massive surge of fundraising to the left off an artificial, fictional white supremacist movement which, of course, is ‘right-wing,’ it’s Unite the Right when, in fact, no one on the right is into that. It’s the left that is into racial politics.”
No, that isn’t what it tells to any person educated in American history who isn’t just plain living in a fantasy world or lying. The reality, of course, is that the Dixicrats left the Democratic party for the Republican party in the early 60s, which is why the Republican party still dominates the south today. Just another con man teaching nonsense to his followers, pretending that the last 55 years never happened and that parties are permanent coalitions rather than shifting ones that have changed their positions over the decades.
They live in an alternate reality, where up is down and black is white and nothing is as it is on the actual planet we inhabit. They protect that fantasy world by teaching lies to their children, both in church and in their home schools, and by inoculating their followers against facts and logic so they won’t believe them when confronted with them. It’s quite a racket they have going and it makes them very rich and gives them control of one of the two major parties.
