Scott Walker's Warrant from God

Candidates running for political office claiming mandate from supernatural-religious forces typically are not widely found in classical liberal America outside of the Bible Belt and rural sectors of the states.

Scott Walker is an outlier, a product of segregationist white suburbia of the greater Milwaukee urban region and its toxic racial politics (Mal Contends) (MacGillis, The New Republic).

An authoritarian and vindictive lifelong politician, Walker's claim of the Almighty's blessing ought to alarm Americans. Racism and God do not equate with a pluralistic America.

Check out Scott Walker tells supporters: ‘I am certain’ my 2016 presidential run ‘is God’s plan for me,’ (Dolan, Raw Story). [Originally reported in RightWingWatch by Peter Montgomery.]

This is a 10-alarm fire.
