Political commentator Dan Bongino said Democrats have a strong aversion to organized religion and God because it takes power away from centralized government and increases individual freedom on “Fox & Friends” Monday.
Republican Sen. Dan Hall of Minnesota sponsored legislation to allow the phrase “In God We Trust” to return to public schools, and two Democratic state senators publicly voiced their opposition to the bill at a May 1 debate. The amendment to the E-12 education policy bill passed 38-29.
“I’m wondering if Sen. Hall would feel the same if students walked in and instead of the word ‘God’ the word ‘Allah’ — which is the word for God in the Muslim religion — welcomes students to their schools,” said Democratic Sen. Scott Dibble of Minnesota.
“I think usually I have a pretty good grasp on the stupidity of the radical left,” Bongino said. “The radical far left clearly does not want competition with the government. So, they’re in this never-ending battle against religion and God. And I just don’t understand what they think they’re getting.”
Bongino said people who believe in God are poised to fight back if the government continues to try to stifle religious liberty.
“Do they think people out there, church-goers, people who love their God, love their religion are going to take this lying down?” Bongino said. “Of course they’re going to fight back at the election booth and ideologically. This is just an absurd strategy.”
He said far-left liberals worship at the altar of big government and predicted major blowback if they continue to push an anti-God agenda.
