Racial Tension Ready to Snap
We live in a time of profound racial sensitivity. Anyone who is a public figure has to carefully choose every word that comes out of his or her mouth. My old congressman Steve King from Iowa learned of this danger when he openly questioned the meaning of the wrong phrases. “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” he said.
Within a few short days, King was labeled the “unapologetically racist” congressman, and he was stripped of all his House committee assignments by the Republican Party. He also received a formal rebuke from the full House in a vote that was 424-1, with only Democratic Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush voting no. Rush said he wanted to censure King instead – a stronger, but still largely symbolic, step.
A couple of other examples of politicians getting into trouble came during the 2018 election. Senator Ron DeSantis said Florida voters shouldn’t “monkey this up,” and Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith said, “If he (a supporter) invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” The problem in both cases was that their opponents were black. I thought it was beyond stupidity for the press to suggest that DeSantis somehow called his political foe a monkey, and Hyde-Smith was wanting to introduce racial hanging into the election.
Democrats have no need to walk on eggshells when it comes to using the wrong dog-whistle words. Former Vice President Joe Biden has a long history of major racial gaffes. He once praised President Obama for his cleanliness.
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said.
Biden has made other questionable comments. In a June 2006 appearance in New Hampshire, the senator commented on the growth of the Indian-American population in Delaware by saying, “You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. Oh, I’m not joking.”
Since Biden is the current frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic Primary, I’m looking forward for Joe to add to his record.
The reality of living in one of the most racially charged times in American history is that we have vast numbers of people absolutely fixated on finding even the slightest manifestation of discrimination. The news coverage of the stare-down between a Covington High School student and a Native American is a perfect example of this insanity. The incident took place after a pro-life march on the National Mall. The Catholic students were waiting for their bus, and they were being provoked by slurs from Black Hebrew Israelites, whose role in the confrontation wasn’t apparent in the viral footage.
The snapshot of Nicholas Sandmann with a smirk on his face and a “Make America Great Again” cap on his head was the product of selective editing. A longer view of the event shows that the Covington High School students had not acted in any harassing manner.
Several twitter personalities took the bait and attacked the students over their “racism.” University of Pennsylvania’s Ebony Elizabeth Thomas said “the smiling face of Whiteness” is one that “always hides a knife behind its back.” A writer for Saturday Night Live promised oral sex to anyone who punched Sandmann in the face.
According to the Washington, D.C., statute against disorderly conduct, these Black Hebrew Israelites were breaking the law by verbally attacking the boys in a public place. Because they are members of a protected class, they have nothing to fear from the police.
Some networks tried to back away from the label of Fake News by showing the full footage. Many networks decided the best defense is to simply press ahead with their false narrative. NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked Nick Sandmann for his guilt, “Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own fault in any way?” Sandmann should have turned the question around and asked Guthrie if she should be the one offering an apology.
The constant labeling of President Trump as a racist is a troubling indication of the madness that is overtaking our nation. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries referred to him as “the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” because he uses “racially insensitive remarks.” When you have people endlessly meditating on fantasy racial injustice, the end result will be total moral depravity. People like Jeffries will become so convinced of their own purity, they will be willing to kill to prove their earthly virtue.
“To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed” (Titus 1:15-16).
The Satanic Upside-Downing
Once again I come to the point in my pontificating that I admit to being sorely vexed. I understand more and more the KJV’s description of Mr. Lot’s sense of hyper frustration. Like Lot just before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire and brimstone from Heaven, I am indeed sorely vexed.
I’ll bet you are, too.
It seems as if the world has been turned upside-down in many ways. It seems that way because it is, in fact, being done so on a daily, even an hourly, basis.
Just as there is a globalists-elite, all-out assault to invoke change in world order from sovereign nation-states configuration to borderless, one-world status, there is effort to change you and me from freedom-loving people to slaves under their control. Even as the previous presidential administration’s hope and change promises proved to be part of the globalist agenda, the ongoing effort to turn everything upside-down continues–despite what I am convinced is God’s Holy Spirit restraint against what looks to be developing the most evil time in human history.
Bible prophecy stage-setting for the consummation of the Church Age (Age of Grace) is on the horizon in every direction the discerning senses turn. This upside-down assault by the most evil creature of history is no exception. In that regard, we look at the Scripture that forewarns of exactly where we stand as a generation on God’s end-times timeline.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)
This warning might easily be seen as pointing at those who today are directly assaulting everything God has deemed “good.” He did so when He created that perfect or “good” sphere to be ruled or governed by His creature called man. The Fall in the Garden of Eden, of course, caused Adam to lose the title deed to Planet Earth to Lucifer, the leader of the angelic rebellion in Heaven. Everything became corrupted by sin. The Lord was thus caused to destroy all life on earth that breathed air–with the exception of Noah, his family, and select animal life that would replenish the planet.
Now, at this late hour in human history, everything is in a rapidly degenerating state due once again to sin-corruptive forces. No force is more corruptive than that being used by the chief corrupter, Satan. Lucifer the fallen one is upside-downing all that God considers “good” and right in the world.
We could go through example after example of how this is taking place. Like the matter I’ve mentioned many times–wanting to preserve “Mother Earth” by doing things like saving the egg of the spotted owl or the tiny snail darter’s habitat, while at the same time murdering human babies in their mothers’ wombs by the millions. (More than 60 million in America since Roe v Wade in 1973.) I received the following web link that reports 1.72 billion babies have been aborted worldwide in the past forty years: https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/1.72-billion-abortions-worldwide-in-the-last-40-years.
On the religious level, the current Catholic pontiff says the Bible is wrong–that there are many ways to achieve eternal life in Heaven, that is, redemption. Jesus Christ is not the only Way, as Jesus said (John 14:6). This is calling “good” “evil” in the most egregious terms possible. It is upside-downing, in the most blatant way possible, the absolute necessity to believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ–the prescription God has, in His perfection, determined to be the only cure for sin sickness and the way to salvation for fallen mankind.
This blatancy can be witnessed in the most easily discerned way by considering the way the corruptive force is dealing directly with God’s creature called mankind.
God, as recorded in Genesis, made man and woman–male and female. There were none other human types that He made. The corruptive force tells us daily that we must accept that there are a number of types. There is the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer. There are likely a number of other such designations, but this is as far as my vexation allows me to investigate…
I will wrap up with the upside-downing this force has managed to perpetrate upon the most foundational relationship God created for us. This corruption was made intensely manifest with this news item.
Calling family “family” has sparked a meltdown among workers at Google, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation, including one who lashed out at company officials for their “disrespectful way to speak.”…
The revolt began when a company official was talking to employees about features of Google’s Unicorn product that continually use the word “family” as a synonym for “household with children.”
“That employee posted an extended rant, which was well-received by his colleagues, on why linking families to children is ‘offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong,’” the Daily Caller said.
The worker’s scolding included: “This is a diminishing and disrespectful way to speak. If you mean ‘children’, say ‘children’; we have a perfectly good word for it. ‘Family friendly’ used as a synonym for ‘kid friendly’ means, to me, ‘you and yours don’t count as a family unless you have children’…
… Use the word ‘family’ to mean a loving assemblage of people who may or may not live together and may or may not include people of any particular age. STOP using it to mean ‘children.’ It’s offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong.”
Dozens of other workers joined in, including Google Vice President Pavni Diwanji.
“Hi everyone, I realize what we said at tgif might have caused concerns in the way we talked about families. There are families without kids too, and also we needed to be more conscientious about the fact that there is a diverse makeup of parents and families, Dwiwanji wrote.
“Please help us get to a better state. Teach us how to talk about it in inclusive way, if you feel like we are not doing it well…’
One worker lashed out at conservatives, writing: “Using the word ‘family’ in this sense bothers me too. It smacks of the ‘family values’ agenda by the right wing, which is absolutely homophobic by its very definition.” (“Calling Family ‘Family’ Sparks Meltdown for Google Workers,” WorldNetDaily, Jan. 18, 2019)
Satan’s insane rage has at its heart a hatred for mankind. This is why he has waged a campaign to corrupt, thus with the desire to destroy, God’s creation called man. That’s why the corruptive force has managed to convince the elected (and unelected Supreme Court) governing authorities in America to allow the slaughter of more than 660 million babies in their mothers’ wombs since 1973. That is why Satan has created the rage within the corrupted human mind that LGBTQ is a loving alternative to one man and one woman for life as the way to procreate. Lucifer the fallen one has convinced that to not procreate is preferable–and when there is procreation, the child is unimportant and needs to be eliminated.
The corruption even goes on to put in the fallen minds of the vilest of human beings that children can be used in the most anti-God ways imaginable in satiating their lusts and perversions.
All of that constitutes a major reason this dispensation is quickly reaching its end and that God’s judgment and full-blown wrath loom. He will soon end the upside-downing and put everything right-side up again.
