the truth about mike pence, and evangelicals

  • Notes from Thom Hartman reading “The Truth about Mike Pence.”
  • Evangelicals like Pence considered themselves warriors
  • Pence’s allies included hugely wealthy donors who posed as victims
  • All of these evangelicals denied science behind climate change.
  • They denied their own power and wealth.
  • They advocated a form of predatory capitalism
  • They claim to be free marketers hero
  • Most of Pence’s life had been preparation for this.
  • He thinks that if he becomes President, it will be because God has chosen him.

Note: there is all too little discussion of the role of evangelical thinking and the Republican movement.
