The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines evil as “Morally Reprehensible”. One of the synonyms for reprehensible is deplorable. Hillary Clinton probably didn’t understand the long-term implications of her “Basket of Deplorables” comment, but the evil that has come from it lingers and pervades all of American society.
If you were confronted with existential evil is there anything you wouldn’t do to confront it? Would you not lie, cheat, steal, assault and even kill to resist it? Therein lies the problem with the current Democrat party. Not only has it moved far left into the world of global socialism but it no longer operates as the loyal American opposition when out of power. It considers Republicans and conservatives to be morally reprehensible, evil, deplorable – and anything is acceptable to defeat and destroy that evil.
The outright political lies, vote theft and election cheating going on around the country is not new but its scale appears to be far greater than in any previous election. Not only are illegal aliens (and improperly registered citizens) voting but the Democrat party is demanding that their votes be counted. Gone is the idea that national citizenship counts for anything, and even claims of the rights of citizenship are considered bigoted. (The Democrat mantra is “We are the world”, and the populations of the world should have equal right to the benefits of America. This anti-citizenship idea is destroying the nations of Western Europe. It will do likewise here.)
Beyond lie, cheat and steal is “justified” assault. Breitbart has chronicled over 600 acts of harassment, physical attack, and property damage against Republicans and conservatives since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president. The Democrat justification for these attacks is that Republicans are morally reprehensible (evil). They must be confronted regardless of the rule of law because personal survival is at stake. (No longer, as was the recent case with Tucker Carlson, is a man’s home his castle. No longer, as was the case with Sarah Sanders and others, is a man’s right to personal peace allowed. No longer is civil restraint noble, quite the opposite.)
What about killing those with whom you disagree? The attack on the congressional Republicans came close but no one died. Therefore, to date, American citizen deaths associated with the violence of the left still remains at zero. Unfortunately, as the left continues to ramp up hate, it is only a matter of time until a homicide occurs and can be directly tied to some element of the resist movement, most likely ANTIFA. (It is not unreasonable to assume that the recent fake bomb, as well as the synagogue and college bar massacres, are the result of driving “crazies” crazy with fundamental issues of good and evil. The left, of course, blames President Trump, but the violence, aided by the Democrat leadership, has been going on and increasing over the past few decades.)
The Democrat leadership has opened Pandora’s box and assumes it will benefit them. This Greek myth teaches a different lesson, – the box once opened spreads evils into the world that cannot be controlled. Such a world is cursed, and the four horsemen of the apocalypse will certainly ride again.
The Democrat leadership ignores the words of John Adams that “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” They reject personal responsibility and elevate the importance of government. Missing is the recognition that the corruption associated with the abuse of power leads to tyranny.
The Democrat leadership has embraced evil. The warning in Isaiah 5:20, “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!” has been ignored. No society can prosper under such a condition.
Those who say this is a national survival fight are not far from the truth.
