As Trump kicks off his fall campaign, and we wonder who is behind it, who benefits from destroying our republic, here is the story. The religious nationalists see him as a fierce leader. They believe God sends such kings to rule us. Author Katherine Stewart explains the mystery of why they punch above their real political weight in this discussion of her new book The Power Worshippers; Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism. She explains that this new nationalism is part of far right ethno-states emerging worldwide. Distinct from the culture wars of the past, this is a political war, with churches being used for political organizing.  The cultural struggles, such as abortion and gay rights, were seized upon as a way to create this new nationalism which is ensconced in the White House, the Dept of Justice, the Dept of Education, etc. Traditional Americans can,and must fight back and win.
