Jews attack Christian nationalism

Here is a Jewish magazine reporting on a Hollywood treatment of Christianity:
Rob Reiner, best known for his acting role in the 1970s sitcom All in the Family and for directing a series of beloved comedies — including This is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride and When Harry Met Sally — is getting serious in his latest project.

God and Country, which hits theaters this week, examines what Reiner sees as the troubling rise of Christian nationalism. The Jewish filmmaker produced the documentary, along with his wife Michele and his friend Steve Okin, with Dan Partland as director. The film follows the history, and the more recent activities, of Christian nationalism, from the 1950s Cold War to the fight over abortion rights to the rise of televangelist Jerry Falwell to the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6.

“For decades, I was aware of… what we call now Christian nationalism,” Reiner told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in a recent interview. “It’s a political movement, really, certainly not a spiritual or religious movement, and it started gaining more and more strength.”

The article goes on to say the movie interviews a bunch a Trump-haters who trace their hatred to either Christianity or nationalism.

Christian Nationalism just got this defintion on MSNBC:

Politico correspondent Heidi Przybyla offered a mea culpa for what she calls "clumsy" remarks she made last week knocking "Christian nationalists."

Przybyla went viral following her MSNBC appearance when she said "Christian nationalists" believed the rights of Americans "come from God" rather than government institutions like Congress and the Supreme Court, facing accusations of demonizing Christians and of being ignorant of US civics.

Her complaint is with America's founding principles.

I am not sure what Christian Nationalism is, except that Jews think that it is some sort of synonuym for Trump. Trump is not even particularly overtly Christian, and the whole thing is a symptom of Jewish paranoia and hatred of Christianity.
