    I actually tried , out of curiosity to watch a Christian movie . It was just bad ! What is with the stale plots and bad high schooler acting! I’ll give Sorbo props for acting with brain damage but I don’t agree with conservatives on a lot of things,especially religious conservatives

    Oh yes the “members” of Antifa. As we all know Antifa is not an organisation, it is just people who are opposed to fascism.

    Sometimes you can identify people who are antifa by the colour of their clothing; my dad was antifa and wore khaki in North Africa in 1942.

    It has been said already: that the Mango One is some kind of wannabe Mussolini is not the main problem. The frightening fact is, there’s oodles of USians who are now so mentally impaired, that they’ll believe absolutely anything. You will of course find such people in any other country, but the sheer quantity in the USA is something else, as well as the degree of separation from reality. Normally, wannabe fascists are there for the prospective of power and profit, nothing more than politically-flavored grifters. But these! It’s gone far beyond sectarian fanaticism, and well into mental illness. I’d love to hear an opinion from mental-health professionals on such specimens.

    These people simultaneously believe that
    a) Storming the Capitol was good
    b) The people who did it are true patriots
    c) Biden is to blame
    d) it was an antifa false flag operation.

    Isn’t that kind of simultaneous belief quite similar to the mindset of a gaslighting domestic abuser?

    Couldn’t someone be conservative, right-center, or libertarian AND antifascist in the sense antifa people are? I mean outside the great sacrifices of the nominally socialist USSR, the leftish components of the French Resistance (&c) many who fought Hitler and Mussolini were not exactly leftist.

    @ 7 : “The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e., the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e., the standards of thought) no longer exist.”

    The real question we should be asking about Kevin Sorbo is who gives a FUCK what Kevin Sorbo thinks?

    If you believe all people are created equal then you must necessarily be anti-fascist as the central tenet of fascism is that one group are better than another – either through race, nationality – or by the coincedence that they happen to have more money than other people.

    Conservatives and big business historically have been much more willing to go along with fascism than those on the left. In Germany Hitler came to power with the assistance of conservatives in the Reichstag. The socialists and communists voted unanimously against him becoming chancellor and paid a terrible price later.

    @9: Yes, but it’s also true of anyone trying madly to rationalize inconsistent ideas.

    Brightmoon @2, erichoug @12.

    This gives me an opportunity to salute
    Noah Lugeons, Eli Bosnick and the others at God Awful Movies, heroically watching and reviewing religion-themed films so the rest of us don’t have to.

    This is true.. I’m fact, not once during any of the utter batshittery that happened this week, did I turn my mind to the thought: “What does Kevin Sorbo think about these things?”
    Now I can’t stop thinking about him, but not in any way he meant for the public to regard him, though.

    (I mean, they obviously give a fuck, no? Denialism is not a good strategy)

    Our acting PM here in Oz, Mike McCormak, has senselessly compared the insurrection to the BLM protests. He says he doesn’t care about the difference in motivation, the difference in who was using force on who, the difference in levels of peacefullness or violence, the difference in lawful vs unlawful behaviour, they were both equally bad.They were both “just protests”.
    These meme monsters are everywhere.
