Count on Salon to Get It So Deeply Wrong

4/5/18 Salon:
Much has been written about Donald Trump and the Republican Party's authoritarian efforts to subvert and destroy American democracy, and their alliances with right-wing gangster capitalists such as the Koch brothers. But the enormous role played by evangelicals in Trump's victory -- and in his enduring core of support -- has not received as much attention from the mainstream news media.
In all, it is increasingly clear that with Trump as the figurehead and Vice President Mike Pence as the puppet-master, Christian evangelicals have successfully completed a soft coup in America.
Yes, I've noticed the religious police in the streets arresting women with tight miniskirts, and the firebombings of gay nightclubs.
