The Duck Dynasty Brouhaha Brought The Silent War On Christendom In America To The Front Pages

Ok I’m going to get into the Duck Dynasty fiasco as it’s viewed in the rear view mirror. It left me asking some questions mostly. First, Mr. Phil Robertson made it quite clear that he was speaking for himself and his personal point of view. And he quoted directly from the Bible regarding homosexuality. While a MSNBC host publicly, on the air, stating wanting to defecate in the mouth of former governor and presidential candidate Sandra Palin … but that’s a non-issue? If it was truly a matter of discrimination and intolerance, than expressing pride in one’s heterosexualness would be just as viciously defended by the same people. After all it’s about being treated “equally”. Right?

If one were to truly analyze the whole dust-up over what Mr. Robertson said and the context in which he said it you may conclude that his comment wasn’t the main issue. What he said, if said a mere twenty, or even ten years ago would have only gotten scant attention. And it would have been viewed positively more than negative I dare say simply because he would have been stating something based on what the majority of Americans already hold as cautionary fact, Biblical principles.  And it would not have been viewed via such irrational politically correct prisms. He quoted the Bible in public as a prominent celebrity, of one of the most popular cable shows in history. Probably if he had said that women should have as many children as they wanted-without a man-and that they should strive to take more traditionally male roles he probably would have been praised. But he quoted the Bible in a Liberal venue against the exaggerated popularity of homosexuality’s cultural equalization to that of heterosexuality.

But I don’t even see the views on homosexuality as the totality of the gross negative reaction to Mr. Robertson’s statement of his personal views. But that he publicly endorsed and represented old fashion masculinity, both in what he said and his stance that he would not be moved from that position, come what may. In today’s cultural assault on the very idea of what a man is and or should be, in order to turn the very word masculine into hate speech, he made it clear, that based on his interpretation of Biblical scripture, a man should only be with a woman, and a woman only be with a man. The push to equate, or even supplant, heterosexuality with that of homosexuality and to engineer a socially secular society, where there are no societal absolutes, can not succeed with a dominate masculine or a traditionally American family culture or society.

So, what was really the target of the venomous hate?  It was not Mr. Robertson. It certainly had nothing to do with tolerance, intolerance, equality, nor inequality. The real target was Christendom. And why did the advocates and proponents of groups such as GLAAD [Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation] lose? Because despite the long fight to abolish Christianity and the tenets of Christendom from the consciousness of the American people, still the majority of which, though too often silent, recognizes the truth behind the very principles upon which this great nation was founded still holds true.

Christianity and Christians are not just catching hell here in America for their principles and beliefs, but too in the Middle East and throughout Europe. Traditional Western Culture is under assault in ways that would have seem unfathomable just a couple of generations ago.  Whether we are being assaulted and persecuted by radical Islamist or radical Secularist, there has been, and is, a silent war being waged against Christendom all over the world. What the firestorm over Mr. Robertson’s comments did, and his subsequent victory, was to put the battle on front street for all to see that there is an eternal effort to suppress and eliminate Christianity in every form from our society.

The tenets and principles of Christianity is woven throughout our nation’s founding principles and documents.  It is our identity.  It too is woven throughout the nations of Europe. That’s why the sudden marriage of the political elites of the Western Powers and the Gay Rights Movement is so confusing and unsettling for many, on both sides of the ocean. To the political elites it is just a matter of politics and their expansion of power. But to many of the silent majority it is a matter of fundamental principles and it is a fight for our view of our civilization and way of life. A fight that we are not yet ready to surrender.

If There Was Ever A Coupe Of The U.S Government Would The American People Know?

A couple of years ago I wrote an article asking the question if the U.S government had been taken over due to its apparent extreme aversion to acting upon the will of the people? In it I refereed to an August ’07 issue of the Financial Times report on David Walker’s, the comptroller general of the US General Accounting Office, warning us that the US government is on a “burning platform” of unsustainable policies and practices with fiscal deficits, chronic healthcare underfunding, and immigration… threatening a crisis if action is not taken soon. Well after nearly 7 years past and being witness to yet another orchestrated performance by the U.S government to confuse, distract, and disorient the American people to further expand its power while still doing absolutely nothing about the burning platform that more threatens to engulf our nation.

obama smugBut just as with the magician on stage, it matters less what is being focused on under the lights, but what is going on just out of focus and in the shadows. After about two weeks of a government supposed shutdown over the Administration’s unwillingness to delay the mandate for every U.S citizen to get sign up for Obamacare, just as it has done for businesses, and creating some way to reduce the government’s debt before agreeing to increase its debt ceiling. But after all was said done the issue on Obamacare became a non-issue and the debt limits got increased without any restraints. In fact, the government spent more money on more pork projects and back paying federal employees the money that they didn’t receive during the shut down that actually only effected less than a quarter of the federal government. So even the most passive observer must ask the question what was it truly all for?

As the main political players-the Progressives in the Republican and Democratic parties, particularly Mr. Obama, and the Establishment Media-attempted to focus us on just the volleys of how to not to do what is truly right for the American people, Mr. O quietly moved forward to fundamentally transforming this nation, while in the light he tells us that he’s working his hardest to do the exact opposite.

Recent Pew Research and Rasmussen Poll tells us aloud what many of us feel instinctively, that we do not trust the government and the future of our once great republic is going down a dark rabbit hole. Yet at the same time we like the individuals in government, i.e. Mr. O is still liked on a personality basis, we just don’t like where he’s taking the nation. It’s like we are all on a boat heading over Niagara Falls that’s being driven and managed by people who we don’t trust nor believe to be competent. While the majority of us appear to be grossly distracted by the hypnotic tunes of the band and the visual imagery, leaving the minority who are alert and conscious wondering why is this all happening when we all see the cliff quickly coming before us?

We all know that this is not the America that we imagined it would become. Intuitively we know that there is something very wrong with this picture. Yet, here we are. And curiously, none of the political creatures of the federal government seem to truly want to do anything to correct the dire situation that faces the America. But while the circus seemed to have everyone’s attention who were fixated to the printed and TV Media programing during the “debt crisis”, somethings where interestingly not focused on, but maybe more interesting particularly to those of us who are more intellectually politically initiated such as:

And what may be more telling of Mr. O’s focus, his first stated goal following the “crisis” is not rebuilding the nation’s economic standing, not to increase the nation’s standard of living, nor reestablishing the lost of faith in the federal government by the American people by establishing a more stern code of ethics, but to get more illegal-immigrants into the country.

But hey, we are in football season and soon it will be the holidays. As the U.S government further enacts it’s modern day version of Ancient Rome’s “Bread and Circus” the America that we all hoped for ourselves and our children of freedom and prosperity becomes more at peril. Don’t mind the smoke! Pass the popcorn.
