Which I heard only in part…
Chris Hedges was on Talk of the Nation today, and was giving a fantastic interview. He’s written a book that was just published, called American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America (it’s now on my birthday wish list – buy it through the link at NPR and help support National Public Radio – just so y’know). The audio will be up at NPR around 6 PM EST, and it’s definitely worth a listen.
He pulls no punches when asked about the danger posed by Right Wing Nutters Pat Robertson, Bob Jones, Oral Roberts and their ilk. He does no polite dancing when asked about their rise to power, their strangle hold on the Republican Party, or their death grip on Christianity in America. He makes no bones about it when asked to compare radical Christianity to radical Islam. He is not too timid to say they are evil twins.
Listen to the interview, buy the book.
