Wow~ This guy's a serious freak show..and that he gets the support that he does is just a bit scary! I imagine he has quite the fan club here eh?


Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee to be Pennsylvania’s next governor, wants everyone to know he is fighting a holy battle. A holy battle to wrest government control away from the forces of evil. A holy battle against “election fraud” and the agents of the devil who are scheming against God’s anointed heroes. A holy battle to make the United States into a good, righteous, Christian nation.
That’s far from the most eyebrow-raising part of his campaign.
Mastriano came to national prominence by leading protests against COVID protocols, and became one of the leading voices in attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election. He literally brought bus-loads of supporters to the Jan. 6 insurrection and appeared to cross police barricades during the riot. He has spread Islamophobic conspiracy theories and tweeted out QAnon content. He pals around with white militias and prays to God to protect Confederate monuments. He once said women who have abortions should be charged with murder.

If he becomes Pennsylvania’s next governor, he will almost certainly pressure lawmakers to change the state’s election laws, attempt to give the Republican legislature the power to pick electors in a “contested” election, and appoint a Secretary of State who would refuse to certify the next presidential election, if won by a Democrat. (He has also already said he would not sign off on the certification, should it get that far.)
But it’s his claim to a holy mission that is central to understanding Mastriano and the movement he represents.
If Mastriano wins, he will arguably become the most important politician in modern memory to win major office while running as a full-fledged Christian nationalist. Though he is currently trailing in the polls, he has not attempted to move to the center at all, as many of the Republican party’s MAGA-heavy primary winners did.

This guy, MTG and Boebert essentially represent the base of one of our two major parties at this point.

I think "frightening" is a fair description. I've been assuming all along that America was better than this.

I've seen Mastriano on TV plenty of times lately.

He's down to fucking business.

Its about time we got an Italian governor here in Pennsylvania.

No, to make the United States into a Christo-fascist authoritarian theocratic dictatorship.

oooh...you so scared. That's not going to happen. your problem is that you don't want Christians to have any say in Government. They've become a big voting bloc to be sure....and they're gonna vote. The left would so prefer a godless, heathenist, satanic fascist authoritarian dictatorship. So much more preferable for the hell on earth they want to establish.

Funny how the left seems to bestow that title on a different person every election cycle.
Dunno about 'the left' but I've never heard ANY major candidate for office make these sort of claims.

Fascism is already here – carrying a cross and wrapped in the American flag; fascism ushered in by the illiberal authoritarian right.

There is no such thing as Christian Nationalism.
Yep, it's another one of those made up words the dems and their shills go on about.

Of course there is the Salvation Army. ;)

Every Christian is a threat to the left because the lefts want to eradicate Christianity. It's a primary goal of Marxism.
Uh-huh..and what about those millions of Christians who are Democrats? Oh wait..the entire Democratic party is Marxist?
Perhaps...a lot of folks..both left and right..wish Christianity to get back to Christ's teachings of inclusiveness and tolerance?
Too funny~

The Christo-fascist right, along with their conservative enablers, seek to destroy the doctrine of separation of church and state, codify religious dogma into secular law, and disadvantage non-Christian religious minorities and those free from religion.

It’s consistent with the right’s war on democracy – replace democracy with a theocracy and establish a Christian Republic with Iran as the template.

I know one thing...the left is terrified of it as much as they are terrified of President Trump.

Sounds very puritan-like---that's pretty much what the pilgrims wanted..and indeed had...for about 50 years.

Christ may accept Marxists but the agnostic are a bit more hard-nosed. ;)
