The U.S. Muslim Right and its Christian nationalist path

Some religious Muslims immigrated to the USA and assimilated right into —- U.S. White evangelical Christian nationalism. But because these Muslims follow rituals regularly, they don’t see that they have settled right into the Christian Right’s agendas, frameworks, conspiracy theories. They congratulate themselves on not drinking and dating, and on being “safe,” but they have already surrendered.

This U.S. Muslim Right feels comfortable with their White evangelical counterparts: “We have so much in common! They too are at war with feminism and homosexuality!” In the name of culture wars, they have surrendered centuries of Muslim thought and practice to Christian nationalism.

The Muslim Right have replaced the very different Islamic guidance with the Christian Right’s novel insistence on soul-at-conception. Their loyalty to this notion offers a bonus sense of fitting in to a powerful political machine with religious veneer. They aspire to the power of this machine.

The Muslim Right imagines that if they only prove themselves to be religious (and committed to these wars which are not their own), that the White Christian nationalist machine will embrace them and share its power. Have you guys not learned that YOU WILL NEVER BE WHITE?

You will always be a key enemy of this US Christian nationalist industry, no matter how hard you market yourselves to them and no matter how hard you kiss their asses and demonstrate your authoritarianism. They will destroy you at the first opportunity.

  1. Hi
    That is a political statement
    There are commonalities and there are differences
    In other words no black and white
    Hence what is the middle ground?
    We in India face the same problem Hindus are polytheists and idol worshippers We will not do the same but would share their joy and concerns too in some religious matters
    Meanwhile Hindus look at the beard and skull caps and classify as extremists whereas this is common among Muslims These frictions will exist but must not be allowed to be exploited All minorities try to placate the majority for security to some extend and it is what you are seeing
