Christian Nationalism is Fascism

Heroes are measured by the size of their monsters.

I’m Antifa! Well, I’m antifascist, anyway

Now, I absolutely hate when an author condescendingly gives you the dictionary definition of a common word but the definition of fascism is “A system of government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of opposition, private economic enterprise under centralized governmental control, belligerent nationalism, racism, and militarism.”

Recently it dawned on me that Antifa is most likely imaginary, cooked up by some minion in the Murdoch empire.

Because I can tell you I’m pretty much the leftist girl that has ever lefted and I can’t seem to get myself a subscription to the Antifa newsletter.

A friend of mine thinks it’s like the hippie movement where it’s a real thing but it’s not a club you can join. Yeah, but I personally read hippie newsletters smuggled across the country to the Back End of Beyond where I grew up.

So why didn’t I hear of Antifa before Sean Hannity?

Inquiring minds want to know! So where did the idea come from?

There’s apparently a German Antifa. And their symbol is commonly seen over there. It’s crossed red and black flags. One flag stands for anarchy and the other for communism.

That’s all the American right-wing needed. An embarrassment of riches. They can take it from here. American Antifa was born. At least, in my imagination.

It doesn’t really matter though. I am simply antifascist. I am “democracy girl.” I want to hear everybody’s opinion and make sure everybody gets something they want as long as it’s not harmful to others.

White Christian Nationalism

This means I am automatically opposed to Christian Nationalism. It may sound like I’m bashing Christianity here but I’m not. White Christian Nationalism is not any form of Christianity. It is Fascism hiding behind a crucifix.
