Why did President Obama want to “fundamentally transform America?” Why are today’s Democrats even more eager to do so? Why are they so willing to shun Israel and trash their own country? Leaving emotion out of the equation, the only logical reason is because they hate the Judeo-Christian values that made America the freest and most successful country in the history of the world.
Think about it. What part of the Judeo-Christian value system isn’t under attack by the left? The Protestant Work Ethic, or hard work in general, is considered passé, bad for your health, and beneficial only to “the Man.” Companies are being forced to offer more time off, longer leaves, shorter work weeks…and higher minimum wages. There is not only maternity leave, but paternity leave…and “pawternity leave.” The latter is for employees who have just gotten a pet and want to spend some early quality time with them without that pesky employment getting in the way. Millennials say time is more important to them than money. Yet, they want everything free…and now. Moreover, merit is mocked, and sloth is the norm. Young people, especially, walk around in public with pants and underwear halfway down their thighs, and show up to interviews in sweat pants and tee-shirts, exhibiting no respect, especially towards…themselves.
The rule of law is now only for the rubes in flyover country, or those not in political, media, academic or entertainment power circles. Free speech? Not if it makes somebody uncomfortable. (The very speech that needs protection). The right to bear arms? If you’re wearing a sleeveless shirt maybe, but not if you wish to protect your life and those of your loved ones. The right to privacy? Yeah, right. The right to security against unreasonable searches? Ask Roger Stone and Michael Cohen. The right to a speedy trial? Giggle.
How about family values? Are they under attack? How many still believe in saving sex until marriage? Or that marriage is—or should be—between one man and one woman? How sadly reactionary! How pointlessly limiting when the possibilities are endless. Progressives don’t even believe there are only two sexes, or that it is possible to identify as just one or the other. Or that human beings are above the animals. Therefore, they obviously don’t buy the whole “created in the image of God” thing. The sanctity of life? They prefer the sanctity of abortion and assisted suicide. Sobriety and moderation? Nope. Let your freak flag fly, baby!
This is also why traditional holidays are being altered or ignored. Christmas has been replaced with “Winter Holiday” in many school systems. Wishing someone a “merry Christmas” is considered pushy and non-inclusive by decidedly unmerry leftists. Thanksgiving? A day for early white supremacists to lord it over the beatific Native Americans who helped them avoid starvation. Columbus Day? Why would we want to celebrate—or even acknowledge—the white man who supposedly discovered America…leading to the demise of the Native Americans and the pristine wilderness in which they lived?
Let’s look at a few of the Ten Commandments and see how they are holding up.
First Commandment: “…You shall have no other gods before Me.” Except smart phones, Obama, Oprah and Our Mother Earth.
Second: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.” Except for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O’Rourke, apparently. And maybe Rachel Maddow.
Third: “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain…” Except repeatedly in most television shows and nearly all movies, books and not a few songs.
Fourth: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy…” G*ddamn right we will. Going to smoke a dube and go to the football game. Not gonna stand for the anthem, though. Holy shit, I hope I win my bet on the Broncos!
Fifth: “Honor your father and your mother…” Leftists think dads are unnecessary and bearers of toxic masculinity. They believe government should act as the daddy, freeing mothers up to whore around as nature intended.
Sixth: “You shall not murder.” Leftists are pretty sure babies are exempt from this edict.
Seventh: “You shall not commit adultery.” Progressives believe free love is a crucial part of utopia. Of course, they think everything should be free, even though nothing can be free.
Eighth: “You shall not steal.” Leftists have a complicated, love-hate relationship with stealing. They believe the less fortunate have no choice but to steal from life’s lottery winners. They also believe white Europeans stole North America from the natives. And that George Bush and Donald trump stole elections from the rightful winners, Democratic candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton.
Ninth: “You shall not bear false witness…” See Brett Kavanaugh, Jussie Smollet, the Fusion GPS dossier, etc., etc.
Tenth: “You shall not covet…” Seriously? Democrats are all about coveting. Class warfare and identity politics are simply covetousness forged into an ideology, politically weaponized…and raised to an art form. Soak the rich. You can’t win. The system’s stacked against you. Victimology reigns supreme.
And back to Thanksgiving. Gratitude makes people decent. And happy. Thank God. People consumed by envy and hatred are doomed to a miserable life, and make others miserable, too. This is what the “elites” who disdain Israel and trash America are trying—with startling success-- to accomplish. If they can make the majority of people bitter and unhappy, they can get them to vote for their agenda, keep them in power, and the hell with anything else.
In Judeo-Christianity, the truth is knowable…and sacred. Jesus connected truth with liberty and justice—and therefore happiness—when He said, “The truth shall make you free.” The truth is under attack as never before today. Some progressives don’t even believe in the concept (except, of course, for their own version of truth), while claiming everything is relative. Oddly, they do know for a fact that man-caused climate change is real and that there are a limitless number of sexes/genders. And we have all just been witness to two years of unrelenting fake news perpetrated by the likes of MSNBC, CNN and The Washington Post.
In Judeo-Christian tradition, we are supposed to hate evil. Democrats tolerate it, progressives promote it and leftists celebrate it. This is made abundantly clear by their support for late-term abortion, antifa attacks on buildings and innocent people, abhorrent rap lyrics, disdain for the truth, desire to keep everyone other than themselves dependent on government assistance (them), and their belief that they know what’s best for everybody else, to cite just a few examples.
Can anyone honestly think of anything in the Judeo-Christian value system, big or small, that is not now being questioned or attacked by leftists? Anything?
Thomas Jefferson said, “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” Silly old white man. He would’ve made Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her contemporary peers laugh.
The truth shall get you ridiculed.
