Politico reporter doubles down after shock over people believing rights come from God goes viral

A reporter for Politico whose remarks about “Christian nationalists” and the belief that their rights “come from God” drew strong criticism isn’t backing down.

During an appearance on MSNBC this week, Heidi Przybyla joined the left’s election-year attack on people of the Christian faith when she was asked about the “infusion of Christian nationalism” in Congress after Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) who is devoutly religious was elected to the top spot.

Przybyla, another one of the left-wing activists who have contributed to the destruction of the institution of American journalism tossed off one of the most incredibly clueless answers imaginable after trashing GOP frontrunner Donald J. Trump and Christians who support him.

“The thing that unites them as Christian nationalists – not Christians, by the way, because Christian nationalist is very different – is that they believe that our rights as Americans, as all human beings, don’t come from any earthly authority. They don’t come from Congress, they don’t come from the Supreme Court. They come from God. The problem with that is that they are determining- man, men, it is men are determining what God is telling them,” she said.

What Przybyla failed to mention is that the nation’s own founding documents state that the rights of human beings come from the Almighty, not the government which has come to represent God in the minds of leftists who worship at the altar of the fascist authoritarian state.

According to no less an authority than the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

“Our Declaration of Independence, our entire system of government, is based on the principle that our rights don’t come from some ‘earthly authority’ (like Congress or a king) but from God. Read the plain words of the Declaration: ‘We are endowed by our CREATOR with certain inalienable rights.’ The historical illiteracy of her comments is stunning,” wrote Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen who was among those who slammed the Politico pundit’s uninformed opinion.

Another critic, Citizens for Renewing America’s Wade Miller wrote. “Here @MSNBC helpfully makes it clear their disdain for Christians in America. She says that if you believe that your rights come from God, you aren’t a Christian, you are a Christian nationalist.”

“Somehow they seem to not mention that our own founding documents make this proclamation, as have most Americans throughout our history,” he added. “The radical Atheist Globalists are coming to try to crush ordinary American citizens.”

A prickly Przybyla defiantly lashed out on X, insisting that her remarks had been taken out of context but not addressing her apparent ignorance about rights coming from God.

The trashing of Speaker Johnson is a part of the larger war on Christians that is now entering a new and dangerous phase.

A recent Politico piece by Przybyla claims that “Trump allies prepare to infuse ‘Christian nationalism’ in second administration.”

In reporting on documents obtained by the outlet, Przybyla and fellow Political propagandist Alexander Ward claim that “an influential think tank close to Donald Trump is developing plans to infuse Christian nationalist ideas in his administration should the former president return to power,” before later acknowledging that the documents “do not outline specific Christian nationalist policies.”

President Joe Biden has repeatedly demonized “MAGA Republicans” and now “Christian nationalists” seem to be about to be added to the official Democrat enemies list, a category that could potentially include ALL conservative believers if existing trends are an indicator.
