I guess you could call the first part of this essay my anti- Bernie Sanders and anti-Hillary Clinton essay.
Conservative blogger Matt Walsh has a rant up against Donald Trump that is absolutely epic!
First things first.
The article written by Allen West over at Townhall.com is entitled, The Matrix of Progressive Socialism.
This essay is really great but the back and forth arguments in the comment section are even more revealing and instructive regarding the divide between socialism principles (and how history has shown they don’t work) vs. capitalism principles derived via our Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution within our Democratic Republic.
There are a lot of comments there, but reading through them will give readers a better idea of why conservatives are so against progressive socialism practices and why we know from past history that socialism leads to communism and totalitarianism (i.e. the former Soviet Union, former Nazi Germany, former Imperialistic Japan, and the ongoing misery for people under the North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un.).
I urge readers to pay special attention to what “Loyal Democrat” says in a series of comments and see what commenters “rpu28,” “Parrot27,” and “Chris Stewart” reveal about his comments!
Next, I must give credit where credit is due.
My husband just informed me that the governor of N.J. – Chris Christie – just came out in support of Donald Trump! Now, I may be way off base in saying this but I sometimes imagined that the person in the end times who would rise up to become the anti-Christ might choose to fool the lost with a name like Christi’s! ;-O But I digress…
The credit that I want to give regarding the discovery of Matt Walsh’s epic rant against Donald Trump goes to blogger Rebecca at Insanitybytes.
Here’s a bit of her post:
Ha! I do so love a man who speaks his mind, plainly and with conviction, so kudos to Matt Walsh. It strikes me as ironic however, that same outspoken masculine conviction is partially what has seduced many towards Donald Trump. Even I am entertained by his antics, even I cheer when the man refuses to be shamed into apologizing or backtracking. However, the reasoning part of my brain continues to function too, and I have a sharp eye for snake oil, coconut candy, and bovine poo.
Here is Walsh’s post, “Dear Trump Fan, So You Want Someone To ‘Tell It Like It Is’? OK, Here You Go.”
Warning to Trump supporters…Walsh’s article is quite brutal! But the truth often is hard to take when one is blinded with anger. I think that many supporters of Trump are blinded by a cold anger that had simmered over the past 7+ years of 0bamism and has now reached the boiling point.
To quote Rebecca at her blog:
“Yep. Cause and effect, one side reacting in emotional response to the other.”
“The first thing to go are usually our powers of discernment, I don’t care how you stop the merry go round, just stop this awful spinning. Stop the ride I want off!”
“And so we arrive at, I hate political correctness so, so much, I now enthusiastically embrace all political incorrectness, no matter what! So pro-choice, I’m a “Christian” who doesn’t believe in the need for forgiveness of sins, liberal, Democratic supporting Donald Trump, becomes the conservative darling.”
Well people…Trump is certainly not “my conservative darling.” Unfortunately, I see him as the next BH0bama candidate who just happened to choose to have an “R” next to his name. People (especially Christians!) who have been fooled by this man need to repent and read their Bibles!
Perhaps we haven’t learned our lesson yet after 7+ awful years under a “hopey, changy” narcissist who has wreaked disaster and havoc upon our nation and around the world.
Above all, we need to pray!
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
I would remind my Christian friends to continue to focus on and take heed of 2 Corinthians 4; especially verses below:
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” [fn] we also believe and therefore speak,
knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you.
For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Hat tips to all links.
