He may have omitted it because it is such a large subject in itself. Maybe it’s saved for his next article. At any rate, he’s addressed the issue elsewhere, in depth, in his book " American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America", in other articles, and in his public lectures.
“Chris Hedges on American Fascists (2007)”
Thanks. I know he doesn’t give evangelicals a free pass, and I’ve read American Fascists. As I said to another responder, I just feel it’s an omission here because it’s such a foundational aspect of this descent to fascism.
He has a right to be distraught after all he’s seen; maybe we should be too. It’s more real than this “Everything is wonderful!!!” and “We are the world!” crap we’re being fed
