Excellent Interview

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.

  1. Yeah, those Episcopalian grandmas blowing themselves up in malls are hell to deal with.

    Funny how, if your looking for a little something just so you dont feel alone, you can find it.

    The only connection between Christians and Islamists is that both groups have fundamentalist believers.

    Please excuse me, I need to grab my shotgun.. I see those damn Baptist murdering scum coming up the street.

    Two things:

    1. We’re not talking about Episcopalian grandmas. We’re talking about far right wing fundy nut jobs like Robertson and his followers.

    2. The only real difference is that the Islamic Fundies have progressed further in their aims.

    Nice name. Ironic.

  3. Infophile says:

    Um, are you forgetting about the time Pat Robertson said he wanted to nuke the Pentagon? They’d do it if they had the means. We’re just damn lucky they don’t.

  4. JanieBelle says:

    Truth. They have the motive, just not the means.
