The two recent right-wing poutrages over American Sniper and the President Obama's comments at the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast serve to show the despicable nature of the American Conservatives.
First of all, the United States of America should not have a National Prayer Anything as the United States "is not, in any sense founded on the Christian religion" and the US Constitution specifically forbids the establishment of religion by the Federal Government. Of course, the National Prayer Breakfast was created in the 1950s (akin to the under god addition to the Pledge of Allegiance) in response to the godless Soviet Union to prove Gott Mit Uns.
Secondly, responding to right-wing outrage is a ridiculous task. Whether they are foaming at the mouth over Dijon Mustard, Umbrellas, Dan Daly's USMC Cover or Lattes no group in the history of the world is as wimpy, thin-skinned, petulant, actively ignorant or violently stupid as Conservatives.
Now, American Sniper has become a purity litmus test for Conservatives. For years conservatives have gnashed their teeth; as they've been champing at the bit to declare the Iraq War a Noble Crusade and Glorious Victory and beatify anyone who reveled in murdering Muslims. Since 2003 and dozens of time afterwards, Conservatives declared Iraq "Won" culminating in the Right-Wing Blog-o-sphere declaring Victory in Iraq Day (VI Day) on 11/22/2008.
The Iraq War was a miserable failure, a war crime, resulting in the murder of thousands of innocent Iraqis, a complete waste of American lives and money, which utterly destabilized the region, created ISIS and has in no way made US or anyone else in the world safer.
But, when Obama dared to point out, at the 2015 National Prayer Breakfast, the history of Christianity being used by the powerful to justify heinous crimes well that's just too much.
Conservatives believe Slavery is justified because it exposed the slaves and their descendants to the light of Christianity and the "freedom" of America. Conservatives believe the genocide of Native Americans was justified because genocide is a staunch conservative value. Just as they believe the slaughter of more than a hundred thousand Iraqis is justified because Iraq is "free" now thanks to George W. Bush and Chris Kyle.
So when, former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore has a temper tantrum and pouts,
"This goes further to the point that Mr. Obama does not believe in America or the values we all share."He's absolutely correct. President Obama does not share the American Values of Conservatives because those values are; Oppression, Intolerance, Fawning Adulation of the Rich, Slavery, Murder, and Genocide.
