Marsha Blackburn Talks About The Culture War And Her Christian Upbringing

In a 65-minute exclusive interview with conservative network Breitbart News, Tennessee senator Marsha Blackburn expressed her concerns for the left-wing radicalization of the United States and the importance of Christian values in shaping American society.

The lengthy interview tackled the ongoing culture war between the progressives and the conservatives.

“The way I look at this culture war is you’ve got the left and those that are pushing towards Marxism. They are lined up on one side. You have those that are more constitutionalists and traditionalists who want to preserve our American values of faith, family, freedom—preserve free markets—they are on the other side,” Blackburn said.

“You know, I find it so interesting that when you look at Marxist theology, what do they say? They want to destroy the nuclear family. What do they want to do? They want to replace it with the government,” Blackburn continued.

“The left is on it with them. Whether it’s Big Tech or Big Media or Big Hollywood, they’re all in on this. This is what they are pushing forward and we are going to have to find a way to defend ourselves and our values because they’re in the click. They are all in the click. Big Tech, Big Media, Big Government, Hollywood, the Chinese Communist Party, and they feel as if they are the elites and they should have the control and they should make the decisions,” Blackburn added.

She also mentioned how her religious beliefs and the values that she draws from them, play a factor in her role as a servant to the citizens of America.

“Faith is very important to me, that Judeo-Christian ethic is very important. If we stepped into the den where my piano is, you would see the Baptist hymnal that is there. I played for my church growing up. I still have that. And it reads into your life—it kind of becomes your centering, those values that you realize that you are not one unto yourself but you are part of a community. You are part of a country. Then you have your natural rights that come to you from God and our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, it is there to protect those rights that are yours,” she elaborated.

Blackburn recounts how she never imagined becoming a politician but learned at a very young age the importance of contributing to the community.

“I’ve always said I never thought or expected I would be in elected office. I was very much involved in the community and really appreciated that opportunity. My family, growing up, we were taught that we had our duties at the church. We were taught that we had our civic duties, whether it was cleaning up the side of a roadway or as I did as a 10-year-old in 4-H Club making up a flyer to put in people’s mailboxes to say ‘election day is coming, make sure you vote.’ That was just a part of our training,” she said

Blackburn, who is also known as a supporter of the Tea Party movement, didn’t hold back her thoughts and was generous in her responses, just like her ally Donald Trump, whom she backs unconditionally.
