Donald Trump Jr. Articulates the Nihilism of White Evangelical Christianity

“If we get together, they cannot cancel us all. Okay? They won’t. And this will be contrary to a lot of our beliefs because—I’d love not to have to participate in cancel culture. I’d love that it didn’t exist. But as long as it does, folks, we better be playing the same game. Okay? We’ve been playing T-ball for half a century while they’re playing hardball and cheating. Right? We’ve turned the other cheek, and I understand, sort of, the biblical reference—I understand the mentality—but it’s gotten us nothing. Okay? It’s gotten us nothing while we’ve ceded ground in every major institution in our country.”

In an address to the far-right Turning Point USA conference on December 19, Donald Trump Jr. spelled out in simple and stark terms the new Gospel of white evangelicals.

Evangelicals overwhelmingly voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 despite the fact that his behavior and political philosophy are the antithesis of the teachings of the peaceful, loving and compassionate Jesus Christ.

Evangelicals faithfully supported Trump precisely because he was rude, boastful, arrogant and vengeful; finally they had a champion who owned the libs and sought to make America Great Again for white nationalists by any means necessary.

Junior articulated the New Gospel: stop playing by the rules, reject the “turn the other cheek” mentality and crush their enemies without mercy.

I have been warning my readers for years that evangelicals aren’t true Christians. Thank you, Donald Trump Jr., for making my point.
