U.S. diplomat openly calls for Christian nation-states, rails against Jews

Politico

A State Department official for several years has been publicly calling for the establishment of Christian nation-states, warning that white people face “elimination” and railing against Jews as well as Black Lives Matter and other social movements.

Fritz Berggren, a mid-ranking Foreign Service officer, openly uses his name and image as he espouses these and other controversial views, according to a review of his online postings. Current and former State Department officials noted the connection to POLITICO in recent days.

“Jesus Christ came to save the whole world from the Jews — the founders of the original Anti-Christ religion, they who are the seed of the Serpent, that brood of vipers,” states an Oct. 4 blog post signed “Fritz Berggren, PhD” and titled “Jews are Not God’s Chosen People. Judeo-Christian is Anti-Christ.”

“They murdered Jesus Christ,” the 5,300-word post continues, “How then can they be God’s chosen?”

Berggren’s voluminous output dates back to at least September 2017, according to the archives of his website, Bloodandfaith.com. An about page for the site, also signed “Fritz Berggren, PhD,” offers what appears to be a manifesto of sorts. Like several of his other posts, it includes a video of Berggren expanding on his views.

3. THE ROMANS murdered Jesus Christ.

The eleventh chapter of the Gospel of John describes in detail how the Jewish leadership was TERRIFIED into cooperating with their BRUTAL ROMAN CONQUERORS in the arrest and conviction of Jesus. The Jewish leaders held a meeting, talking over their fear that the Roman army would sweep into their country committing destruction and mass murder. The writer of that gospel backs up the Jewish leaders in their assessment of the Roman penchant for seizing on flimsy excuses to launch genocidal massacres.

Fritz Berggren and his christofascist cohorts would know this, if they had ever actually read the entire New Testament. Apparently, they only pass around a few verses taken out of context to justify a pre-existing antipathy which has other roots.

Note: I do not in any way mean to imply that modern Romans should in any way be blamed or punished for what the ancient Romans did. Fritz Berggren has no excuse for blaming modern Jews for anything that was done back then.

10. Why do they all look almost exactly alike?

 

They almost always seem to be overweight, unattractive, balding and with facial hair. Or some combination of those things.

7. Jesus & all his disciples were Jews

Jesus preached in the temples....nothing new for that time. The first converts were all Jews. At first this movement was thought of as a branch of the Jewish faith. Peter wanted any gentile to FIRST convert to Judaism before becoming a Christian. Paul was the SUPER Jew who went on to argue Peter out of that position. Asshole obviously doesn't know shit about Jesus & his heritage. Typical of Republican fake (& fucking ignorant) Christianity🕍⛪

11. Strange, no? Super Christians who have a problem with Jews seem to forget this

The inconvenient detail: Jesus was a Jew and preached a new kind of Judaism to his followers.

I was aghast last week when I read a quote of a woman interviewed on Newsmax who said Donald Trump was the best thing to happen to the Christian faith, maybe better than . . . Jesus.

Talk about cognitive dissonance! A man who cares for no one but himself, supports bigotry and hate and exclusion of the other.

Makes my head spin! But when your God-King is Donald Trump everything is malleable.

9. don't see this as a Biden - Trump thing

at all. A person with these kind of wildly extreme views (and unchecked personality?) has no business being in a position of representing this country. (or really any other country either) That goes for this administration, or any past or future. Just temperamentally unqualified. And it's hard to imagine what kind of government position such a personality would be a good fit for -- but State is just absolutely not it.

Should be politely but firmly told, "Services no longer required."
