The leader of the Catholic League has blasted “Meathead,” the actor Rob Reiner from the 1970s TV show “All in the Family,” for his attack on Christians.

And officials pointedly note Reiner’s attack, in his movie, flopped with Americans, taking in only about $38,000 in its opening weekend.

The details of Reiner’s attack, and failure, come in a report at Breitbart News.

It was Reiner who released “God and Country,” a video about an “alleged threat to American democracy posed by so-called Christian nationalists,” according to Bill Donohue, chief of the Catholic League.

“The Meathead would have the audience believe that we are on the verge of a theocratic takeover,” Donohue explains in the report, “though few outside of Hollywood and other secular subcultures pay any attention to this fable.”

He explained that Reiner bases his claims on the ideology created by Katherine Stewart, who “harbors a deep phobia about Christianity.”

The result, he said, is a demonstration of Hollywood’s “religiophobia.”

Leftists promoted the movie, and its messaging that Christian nationalism “bears an unfortunate similarity to the rise of Nazi Germany,” with Reiner claiming adherents are “out to make us a Christian nation.”

But Donohue points that that even while the nation’s founders acknowledged God, they chose to make America a “Christian-inspired” entity, but not a “Christian nation.”

In fact, the report notes Catholic Bishop Robert Barron of the Diocese of Winona–Rochester explained it was Thomas Jefferson who wrote that human beings are “endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.”

Breitbart said its own reporting has documented the “scaremongering over a fabricated Christian nationalist uprising has not been limited to Hollywood bigots with an anti-Christian chip on their shoulder.”

It cited Heidi Przybyla, of Politico, who claimed “Christian nationalists are dangerous because they think human rights come from God rather than government.”

She claimed those radicals believe rights “don’t come from Congress. They don’t come to the Supreme Court. They come from God.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
