WATCH: Madison Cawthorn’s Ridiculous Rant Ties Together Jesus & America, With Bonus Racism & Classism

Madison Cawthorn is having really big feelings about a lot of things: the social safety net, airplanes, and of course, America and Jesus. In a bizarre rant, he lashes out about some of these and sings the praises of others — forging an irrational link.

You’ll want to check out all three clips below, as Cawthorne goes from disgust at social safety nets to fear-mongering about public schools and education about the history of inequality in America, to a complaint that he couldn’t get on a flight because of “very destitute-looking people” who “didn’t speak English.”

First, he starts out with anger that the so-called “welfare state” is “giving money to people…in fatherless homes” and says that as a Christian, he’s called to “help the needy” but “will not fund the lazy.”

Then he forges a theocratic link between America and Jesus, but he gets there by way of attacking feminism, which he says teaches women that career should be their whole lives and that they shouldn’t raise families, and declaring that there’s a conspiracy to make parents let “the government have the children for as long as possible,” so that schools can “teach them that America is some racist hateful country” — when in fact, he assures his audience, “America is the greatest force for good to happen since Jesus Christ died on the cross.”

To top it all off, Cawthorn follows his outrage that anyone could describe America as racist, and his assurance that he would help anyone in need, with a burst of anger at immigrants on planes. You see, apparently the young legislator had to wait for a flight, with his first several choices being full, which he feels was because of “some very destitute-looking…Latin-American-looking people” being booked on the flights ahead of him.

It’s a good thing he is so willing to help needy people and show that there’s no racism left in America, right?
