Steve Deace, an influential Religious Right leader and talk show host in Iowa, has written a new book with co-author Gregg Jackson, entitled “We Won’t Get Fooled Again: Where the Christian Right Went Wrong and How to Make America Right Again.”
The premise of the book, which features interviews with the likes of Tony Perkins and James Dobson, is that time and again the Religious Right has supported the Republican Party only to be repeatedly betrayed and now is the time for the movement to take a stand:
We Won’t Get Fooled Again is an in-depth expose of the so-called Religious Right, the most reviled and feared voting bloc in the past 30 years of American politics.

The book even has its own trailer which offers up a series of ways in which the Religious Right has supposedly been betrayed by the Republicans and conservative movement, such as Ann Coulter joining the board of GOProud, former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman coming out as gay, and even George W. Bush saying that he was not a Biblical literalist.
