Mikey Weinstein’s Motivation Against BGen Teichert Revealed
For a few minutes, Michael “Mikey” Weinstein managed to stick to his scripted talking points that he was concerned about BGen John Teichert’s alleged ‘abuse of authority’ with regard to religion — not the religion itself.
But that fell apart pretty quickly.
First, Weinstein claimed it was a lack of “disclaimers,” then it was about the fact BGen Teichert’s beliefs were public. Then it was the fact BGen Teichert’s statements were “offensive.”
Weinstein’s moving goalposts were intentional obfuscation — and a bit of scrambling for some “legitimate” complaints to obscure the blatant bigotry of the more direct “silence Teichert because of his Christianity”.
But now Mikey Weinstein has clearly revealed what he really “did” — and it had nothing to do with regulations or Airmen with poor intestinal fortitude. When summarizing his “accomplishment,” Weinstein said his [formatting original]:
MRFF REVEAL[S] AIR FORCE GENERAL TEICHERT’s CHRISTIAN NATIONALIST AGENDA
Now, at least, Weinstein is confessing it has nothing to do with disclaimers or “offensive” content. Rather, Mikey Weinstein objects to BGen John Teichert’s theology — which Weinstein has oddly labeled a “nationalist agenda.” Its all part of a conspiracy, it seems.
Mikey Weinstein used to speak in a more principled way, saying in 2006:
I would give my last drop of blood and my last breath, and I would commend my three children…to give their last drop of blood and their last breath to support the rights of these [evangelical Christian] people…
That recalls the overused quote that one may not agree with someone, but one should ‘defend to the death’ their right (to say it, etc).
But Weinstein hasn’t repeated that quote in years, likely because it isn’t true and never was — as demonstrated by the cognitive dissonance he likely has with situations like this. BGen Teichert has done nothing but possessed and discreetly exercised beliefs with which Mikey Weinstein disagrees. Weinstein is excoriating a Christian because he is a Christian, nothing more.
Rather that “support[ing] the rights of these people,” Mikey Weinstein is attacking them.
The answer is clearer than you may think.
Weinstein’s current accusation is a softer version of another famous Mikey Weinstein line:
In Plan A, evangelical Christians with a smile on their face will ask you to please, please, please accept their biblical worldview of Jesus. The problem with that is, inevitably, Plan A morphs into Plan B. They stop asking so nicely, and then you have the Holocaust, the pogroms, the Inquisition…
This country is going through–right now–a transition from A to B.
Mikey Weinstein truly, sincerely believes US Air Force BGen John Teichert — and every other evangelical Christian — is part of a plot to institute “Plan B.”
Mikey Weinstein is legitimately terrified of the widespread Christian plot to take over the world — and he will stop at nothing to prevent it, US Constitution and religious liberty notwithstanding.
And that should tell you just about everything you need to know about the mental state of one Michael “Mikey” Weinstein.
