This video is called Chris Hedges: American Fascists – The Christian Right and the War on America.
When attention is paid to the gay-hating racist pastor of Westboro Baptist Church in the USA, Fred Phelps, sometimes it is said that Phelps is supposedly a loner, supposedly not representative for the religious Right in the USA.
While, au contraire, it seems that the “Reverend” Fred Phelps is really the tip of the US religious Right iceberg.

Arizona pastor’s sermons call for execution of gays, Barney Frank and the President

“The same God who instituted the death penalty for murders is the same god who instituted the death penalty for rapists and for homosexuals, sodomites and queers” …
Among other sin-filled people Anderson calls to be executed is the POTUS, for his stand on reproductive freedom.
“God Hates Barack Obama, I hate Barack Obama. I hate Him. God wants me to Hate Barack Obama.” “Someone who commits murder should get the death penalty.”
Do you think he would be investigated by the Secret Service during Bush’s terms in office? Did he think Bush deserved the death penalty for executing all those Iraqi citizens in his unnecessary military action? Just asking.
A bit of Googling reveals that the “Reverend” Anderson is a bigwig in the extreme Right so- called “tea parties”, and attacks African American civil rights leaders.
