Christian Right Activist: Under Obama, I Worried Every Night That the Feds Would Haul Me Away

Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire says a lot of stupid things. He’s an ignorant guy, so you’d expect that. But I had no idea he was also paranoid.

He said yesterday on his “Pass The Salt Live” show that, during the eight years of Barack Obama’s administration, he frequently worried about government agents pulling him out of his home, presumably because of his outspoken love for Jesus.

“Since Obama got in office,” he said, “there was not a night — not a night — that I didn’t go to bed at night, when I turned off the lights in the house, I looked out the window and locked the door, there was not a night that I went to bed and didn’t wonder if this isn’t going to be the night that those black SUVs are going to pull up. I’m telling you, not a night. That was always a possibility in my thought process.”

Daubenmire spent eight years worrying that government would haul him away, even though that was never going to happen, and that’s part of the reason he’s so grateful that Obama was replaced by Donald Trump.

What he doesn’t say in the video is that, because of Trump and Republican complicity, the government really is pulling people from their homes if they’re undocumented immigrants.

Daubenmire doesn’t give a damn about them. I’m not sure why, since many of them are probably Christian, but there’s no empathy on his end.

Fake Christian persecution matters to him far more than actual persecution of minorities.
