NEWSBUSTERS — In the media’s mission to associate literally everyone and their Bible-thumping grandmothers with “terrorist” attacks at the Capitol Building from this past Wednesday, outlets are beginning to blame the violent actions of a vast minority of a Trump rally-attending crowd on pro-Trump Christians in general.
In a hare-brained piece titled the “A Christian Insurrection,”Emma Green of The Atlantic decided to insinuate that because there was a plethora of Christians at the January 6 Trump rally in D.C., and that because a tiny minority of the thousands upon thousands of people there broke into the U.S. Capitol Building, Christianity shares the blame for the attack and is now a weapon utilized by Trump to promote insurrection. They sure love a balanced approach, don’t they?
The piece began saying, “The name of God was everywhere during Wednesday’s insurrection against the American government. The mob carried signs and flags declaring ‘JESUS SAVES!’ and ‘God, Guns & Guts made America, let’s keep all three.’ Some were participants in the Jericho March, a gathering of Christians to ‘pray, march, fast, and rally for election integrity.’”
