Brigitte Gabriel to Religious Right: ‘We Are at War’

Brigitte Gabriel, president of the anti-Muslim group ACT! for America, launched a fiery rant at today’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., during which she declared to the room of Religious Right activists: “We are at war.”

Gabriel has been promoting her recently released book and fundraising for her organization by boasting about her group’s ties to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who addressed Values Voters Summit today, and touting her group’s connections to the Trump administration. On its website, ACT for America states its mission as “keep[ing] America safe and secure.”

“America is being transformed before our very eyes. The flag that once flew on every street corner in the United States is now considered a hate symbol on college campuses. Athletes who used to stand up with tears of pride during the national anthem are now kneeling in protest,” Gabriel said, adding that this sentiment motivated her to write a book.

“My friends, our Judaeo-Christian values are under assault,” she said. She added that students in public schools are being indoctrinated with “Islamic propaganda” in their classrooms.

“You need to understand that we are at war and we are at war against the radical leftist element in our country that has declared war on us,” Gabriel declared.

She later added, “We have people in this country complaining about America, finding every ill in America. They can not see anything good in America. They complain about everything we have in this country.”

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to address Values Voter Summit tomorrow morning.
