Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a non-profit organization, explains why proselytizing in the U.S. military is both dangerous and unconstitutional. Christian nationalist and dominionist ideologies are espoused by high-ranking officers in the military, some of whom are involved in nuclear war and military planning. This highly disturbing reality, Mikey argues, is largely ignored by policymakers. As was reported following the U.S. Capitol attack on January 6th, 2021, an unusually high number of those charged in relation to the attack had a military background, and some of them adhered to radical Christian views.
While the Jan 6th committee will produce hundreds of hours of testimony important for the historical record, have they investigated the reasons why ten former secretaries of defense and the editorial board of the Financial Times thought a coup was in progress – on Jan 4th? What was the role of Christian Nationalism in the military? What is the threat of another coup attempt in the future? Gerald Horne joins Paul Jay on theAnalysis.news.
On January 10, 2021, four days following Trump’s attempted coup, Gerald Horne stated that “class-based reforms must be combined with a fierce crackdown on the violators of the law on January 6.” Horne discusses the historical background and the lead-up to this event with Paul Jay on theAnalysis.news.
Why did ten former secretaries of defence fear a coup coming from within the U.S. military, two days before the storming of Capitol Hill? Philip Gorski, author of The Flag and the Cross, joins Paul Jay to discuss the role of Christian extremists in the days leading up to Jan 6th and the growing strength of the movement.
The riot on the Hill was not an insurrection, but it was the final violent act of a failed coup. But why is the role of Mitch McConnell and the National Association of Manufacturers not being examined? Paul Jay joins the By George podcast Pt3/3.
The events of Jan 6th were the last gasp of a failed Trump coup, fuelled by the power of Christian extremists in the military and Congress. Their objective is a form of Christian authoritarianism, and they are planning for an open fight in 2024 or sooner. Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation joins Paul Jay on theAnalysis.news.
YouTube has censored and suppressed my report on the events of January 6th. I’d like to know why, but Google doesn’t owe me an answer. They can promote or suppress whatever they please. Now a new book by Washington Post reporters confirms my report. This is my post from Feb. 20, 2021
This story was first posted on YouTube on Feb. 6th and was then deleted and a warning was issued to theAnalysis.news about spreading “misinformation” about the 2020 election results, namely that they were won by fraud. You watch the piece and see if there is any truth to it.
Christian fundamentalist nationalists in the senior ranks of the military, see Trump as an instrument of God’s plan to create an authoritarian Christian state. The military allows active proselytizing and recruitment of soldiers, contrary to the constitutional separation of church and state. Many of these officers and soldiers were involved in the events leading up to and on Jan 6th, which has been described as an attempted coup.
