American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War On America

American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War On America - Chris Hedges I swear, I am no conspiracy theorist. However, watching the political climate over the past decade has demonstrated to me that Chris Hedges is absolutely correct - the fundamentalist Christian movement in this country is determined to dismantle the Establishment Clause and establish a theocracy in this country.In this book, Hedges makes the case that the fundamentalist movement is actually a fascist movement, providing evidence of plans by the movement's leadership to take over the government and implement a bible-based version of Sharia. I realize on the surface that this sounds bizarre at best, but these people are in absolute earnest.An outstanding companion book to Mel White's "Religion Gone Bad," but a tad on the dry side in places.
