RUSH EXCERPT:

BARBER: "You know what I think drove those so called evangelicals is — it was more about the backing of the money behind it, the business interests. This whole business of white evangelicalism started in the 40s when they wanted to find a theological way to come against what Franklin Delano Roosevelt was going. The realty was they walked away from the primary pieces of the gospel. How can you support somebody who stands up and tells you, if you elect me, I believe that minimum wage is already too high. I’m going to take people’s health care, I’m going to privatize schools. And that’s one of the things we have rejected in this particular election. That is why you cannot understand this irrational vote without factoring in the racism, factoring in the white rage, the white backlash that Trump and not just him, that began even when Obama first got elected and an and others have played on."
