    Default The Greatest Threat Facing America

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/09...acing-america/

    Certain faith leaders and their congregations have admirably challenged the Trump administration’s brutal immigration and refugee policies, planned cuts to health care and other programs serving the least empowered, displays of racism legitimizing white supremacists, and President Trump’s pandering to those evangelical Christians’ eager to debase themselves for power. A major issue remains: how will people of faith respond to the existential threat Trump’s presidency poses to America itself?
    The greatest threat facing America is not “radical Islamic terrorism.” Nor is it North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, eliciting American UN ambassador Nikki Haley’s propagandistic charge that Kim Jong-un is ”begging for war.“ Nor is America’s greatest threat Muslim immigrants’ believed to be intent on gaining power and establishing Sharia law. Nor is it hordes of “criminally-disposed” Mexicans, whose “invading” presence is assumed to require more deportation officers and a border wall. Neither is it “inner city crime.” Nor is it about Black Lives Matter people, who are seen by many as a threat to established white status quo order.

    The greatest threat to America is embodied in the man who, ironically, said, “We must maintain law and order at the highest level or we will cease to have a country,” and billed himself as “the law and order candidate.” (“Trump: ‘I am the law and order candidate,’ “ By Louis Nelson, POLITICO, July 11, 2016) The man who now occupies the highest office in the land. Consider the ways in which Donald Trump has warned everyone that he is prepared to assault law and order – to the extent of provoking civil disorder, and possibly even a fascistic coup, to maintain his power.
