The Daily Planet's Opinion: Carville’s attack on Christian faith of Speaker Johnson as ‘a bigger threat than al-Qaeda’ ranks as low blow by an idiot

To our utter shock and amazement, Democratic strategist James Carville was speaking with Bill Maher on Dec. 1, when he offered his perspective on Christians like U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson, saying they are “a bigger threat” than al-Qaeda.

Specifically, Blaze Media reported on Dec. 4 that Carville asserted, “Mike Johnson and what he believes is one of the greatest threats we have today to the United States... This is a bigger threat than al-Qaeda to this country.

“And let me tell you something: The speaker of the House, they got probably at least two Supreme Court justices, maybe more, don’t kid yourself. People in the press have no idea who this guy is, how he was formed, what the threat is — and this is a fundamental threat to the United States. It is a fundamental thing. They don’t believe in the Constitution. They’ll tell you that. Mike Johnson himself says, ‘What is democracy but two wolves and a lamb having lunch?’

“That’s what they really, really, really believe. And to say, ‘Oh, come on, man. It’s just some crazy s***.’ No, no. They believe that. And they’re coming and they’ve been doing it forever. They’re funded. They’re funded. They’re relentless and, you know, they probably won’t win for a while but they might. And if they do, the whole country blows a gasket.”

Then, Blaze noted, “Maher actually threw Carville a bone, asking if he was referring to ‘Christian nationalism’ — and Carville responded, ‘Absolutely!’”

The Blaze report then opined, “However, the way in which Carville pontificated about Johnson indicated that he was speaking about Christianity generally, not any form of nationalism per se. This is an important distinction because Johnson has never said he ascribes to any form of ‘Christian nationalism.’ Quite tellingly, that phrase is only used when the media and Democrats want to attack him.”

To his credit, Johnson, in defending his faith, replied on X the following: 

“It’s twisted and shameful that a leading Democrat strategist says millions of Christians in America are a greater threat than foreign terrorists who murdered more than 3,000 Americans.

“The Democratic Party should condemn this. But they won’t.”

Johnson, while certainly not perfect, has earned a reputation as being a straight-shooter, a man of faith and wisdom and an overall standup good guy — and a strong defender of the Constitution and of Christianity.
