The saying is "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." and is usually cited a a quote from Sinclair Lewis but that's wrong.  I was reminded of this when I read this WaPo article on politics in West Virgnia and came across this:
Mayor Steve Williams strode onstage with a Bible in his right hand, and a bound copy of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in the other.

“Our independence day is on Easter Sunday,” he said, and held the Bible aloft. “This is our Declaration of Independence.”
