To begin, I am venting after reading the hack piece, "Natural Result of a Climate of Hate" by Paul Krugman (NYT) as well as many other hack jobs being reported as "news". I know. I know. All of us are feeling the need to vent and we certainly did in the 2010 elections. YES!!!
I am disappointed, yet unfortunately, not surprised by the smear campaign being waged against conservatism in the aftermath of the AZ shootings. The opportunistic political hacks frothing to life after a sound defeat of left-wing ideology e.g. communism/liberalism/marxism/progressivism/socialism/secularism (clmpss; I only mention this string of titles for those who attempt to divert to covert titles) in the 2010 elections. The clmpss media, pundits, bloggers, and a few elected officials are beside themselves with apparent 'glee' at an evil act providing them 'perceived' political ammo. Talk about being filled with hate. Where is the attempt to unify? Where is the All-American spirit to unite? Instead stalwart All-American conservatives are viciously attacked? Has our nation ever been so polarized from the top-down since the American Civil War? Why are we in this current state?
Here is a factual thought: The American conservative base is most aligned with our nation's founders and the overwhelming majority of Americans since the American revolution until present. Were these great historical Americans "haters"? No. Did they create "an environment of hate"? No. Did they lay a foundation for the current bitter political period of vitriol which we are in today? No. So what has changed in the United States of America? The only answer, the left-wing (clmpss)!
The left-wing has changed for the worse; there are no American patriots instead we get false victims as false heroes and immorality shoved down our throats. They whine and complain about the reading of the U.S. Constitution. They only support rights of anti-American's, the immoral, and clmpss causes, and define all else as "hate". They persistently and knowingly attempt to change the definition of 'good' to 'bad' and 'bad' to 'good'. They insulted our Viet Nam Veterans as "baby killers" yet chant "Pro-Choice", allowing the murder of babies with abortion. They can't "afford tax cuts" yet they can "afford to raise taxes". They don't want government to control their lives, just your's. They correlate the Boy Scouts of America with the Nazi youth of Hitler yet they see the the likes of ACORN and Planned Parenthood as moral and good. The ACLU, an organization founded by a communist, has tainted our legal system from justice to injustice. The left-wing are offended by Christ in "Christmas". They are arrogant with redefining marriage to include same-sex couples. The left-wing is morally bankrupt, their consciences are seared and calloused, and they are truly ungodly in nature. "1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these." -- II Timothy 3:1-5 I'm not saying these are the "last days" but the left-wing's ideology and tactics could be a convincing argument.
My point is simple. The conservative base holds steadfast to the founding principles of our great nation and uphold the values which make our nation great. Basically, we are the original Spirit of America however the leftwing (clmpss) is far from our nation's founding principles and great values. The left-wing continues to prove their 'hate' of God, of our nation, of our nation's founders, and all things good. They are the haters which thrive on misery, deceit, lies, divisiveness, and evil then attempt to blame their cancerous traits on the good All-American conservatives (aka the overwhelming majority of the United States' population) who keep this country strong despite the left's adamant sabotage to weaken our nation.
As a nation, may American citizens choose to rise from the darkness, hate, and the extremely low political road which the left-wing has manipulated our nation into taking.
In closing, I pray we may return to God through Christ Jesus His Son so we can bask in the greatness of His light. May God heal this nation as well as those wounded. May He comfort those mourning their loved one's loss as only He can. God help us! Amen.
