I was thinking…
Ok. I’ll wait for you to stop laughing.
Any time now.
Feel better? Good.
So anyways, I was thinking. Too often when I rant about what is in essence Christian Nationalism, I have no quick word to describe the adherents of such a liberty-destroying philosophy. Christian, Republican, conservative, neo-conservative (and the shorter, neocon), etc. All of these words (yes, even neocon) cast the net wider than I’d like. Sure, I could say “Christian Nationalism” all of the time. I could also say “unsolicited email” instead of spam. I prefer to do neither. Hell, even the Christian Nationalists have the nonsensical “moonbat” for people who enjoy, you know, freedom.
Me being me, the first image in my mind when thinking about Christian Nationalists (see, it’s awkward to read repeatedly, too) is a bunch of fucking nazis. That’s when the light bulb went off.
National Socialism -> Nazi.
Christian Nationalism -> Chrin.
I’m going to start calling them chrins (with a K sound – if nazi can make a Z sound like a T, I can make CH sound like K).
Yay. I just invented a new derogatory term! As a bonus, it has that nice hard sound that is so easy to fill with vitriol.
