What? Wait a Minute! :: By Bill Wilson

Marxist groups that want to defund the police, abolish the traditional role of fathers in the family, and set all prisoners free because of racism are being celebrated by political leaders and the news media— What? Wait a minute! The world is being shut down by the fear of a virus where there is a 99% chance of survival— What? Wait a minute! People have adopted the slogan, “Hate doesn’t live here,” but call everyone who disagrees with them racists, bigots, hatemongers and more— What? Wait a minute! Mayors in the largest cities in the US are demanding the defunding of police yet are turning a blind eye to riots, murders, crime, vandalization of businesses—What? Wait a minute! These are just some headlines; here are more.

Democrats blame the president for COVID 19 deaths, but offer no solution to what they call a national pandemic– What? Wait a minute! The New York governor sends people infected with COVID 19 to nursing homes and then tries to blame the president for huge numbers of nursing home deaths– What? Wait a minute! Now he’s saying that criticism of his actions is just politics—nothing to see here– What? Wait a minute! Riots in Seattle and Portland, the mayors and Democrat politicians there refusing to restore order, but blame the president– What? Wait a minute! The Speaker of the House invoking Nazism when the president sends federal agents to restore order in riot-torn Democrat-controlled cities– What? Wait a minute!

The US closed Chinese consulate offices amid an array of issues, including COVID 19 and spying, and China retaliates by saying the US is responsible for all of the deterioration in US-China relations– What? Wait a minute! Democrat governors and mayors are issuing orders and punishments for not following lockdowns and wearing masks, yet their states and cities are the most infected with COVID 19– What? Wait a minute! Those same politicians want businesses shut down and people in lockdown, but they support rioters in the streets– What? Wait a minute! Former Vice President Joe Biden says that black people are not really black if they don’t vote for him– What? Wait a minute!

In more than 80 pages in the Democratic National Committee’s draft platform published by Politico, whites are mentioned 15 times, all critical, including three references to white supremacy or supremacists and one to white nationalists, which likely encourages more rioting in the name of racism–What? Wait a minute!

Do you see the pattern in all these headlines? The nation has gone crazy. Proverbs 12:15 says, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But he who heeds counsel is wise.” America is adrift in foolishness. Oh, one more—Major League Baseball has no fans in the stadiums, so it is populating seats behind home plate with cardboard cut-outs of fans—What? Wait a minute! Put on the brakes. We need the LORD.
