He also claimed that evangelical Christians are the new American Taliban, but who’s counting?
So these are the sorts of “deep thinkers” the left-leaning media believe are the antidote to the toxic lies spread by Fox News Channel and other right-leaning sources. This one’s name is Frank Schaeffer, and he is the author of “Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God.”
Schaeffer was a guest on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” with Joy Reid last week to attack the pro-life Texas abortion law. In that capacity, he opined that “there is a new American Taliban, and their goal is theocracy, which means to take our religious beliefs, which for them are Old Testament law, not Christianity, and force secular Americans, non-evangelical Americans, progressive Americans, women, people of color into that box.” He went on to assure viewers that what he was spouting was not “hyperbole.” I don’t know about you but I’m bullish on self-critiquing progressives who will spout all sorts of out-of-left-field gibberish and avow it’s the gospel truth.
“This is happening right now tonight in Texas. This is happening right now with the people dying of COVID, children dying of COVID, because pro-lifers have seen fit to stand against Joe Biden`s vaccine as a way to own the libs,” he continued, once again calling those individuals “literally bioterrorists.”
Schaeffer has shared equally erudite opinions online, including this gem, which he has since scrubbed from Twitter:
Anti-vaccine and anti-mask anti-science conspiracy theory-spreading leading activists are bio terrorists. Period. They should be treated as such. Drone strikes on selected worst offender pod-casters anyone?
It’s interesting to hear kooks like this, who freely advocate violence, call out others with opinions that vary from them theirs “terrorists.”
