For decades, Republicans have been happy to talk about their faith. And in many cases, it has helped them to get elected. That is especially true in areas with large amounts of Evangelical Christians.But there days, Conservative candidates are much more transparent about their Christian Nationalism. This is certainly the case with North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson. During a weekend speech, Robinson claimed that Christian Patriots will “rule this nation.”
The GOP lawmaker began by telling those who aren’t Christians should leave the country. “You can leave God’s country,” he said, “and we will not miss you.”
“Tell our enemies on the other side of the aisle that will drag this nation down into a socialist hellhole that you will only do it as you run past me laying on the ground, choking on my own blood because I will not give up this nation to you! It is not yours. You did not build it, you did not defend it, and you will not own it. We will. The Christian patriots of this nation will own this nation and rule this nation and help freedom survive for future generations.”
