"Whether the progressive community in America sees it or not, there is a growing danger that conservative white Americans are embracing the same kind of HATRED towards them that average Germans embraced against the Jews just prior to the rise of Hitler in 1933 - a belief among conservatives that a poisonous brand of progressivism has gained a stranglehold on American politics; a brand of progressivism that as of today has excluded all forms of Christian religious symbols and Christian forms of expression from the public sphere.
"In doing so, progressives have ignited a towering rage against themselves within the larger Christian majority in America."
Sadly, it seems that many of our dear readers totally misconstrued what the article was all about, and, as a result, I received a large number of letters from our readers taking me to task for siding with progressives and liberals against President Trump; the following letter is just one example:
"Did you ever complain about Obama fueling of hatred between whites and blacks? What about all the hatred spewing out of Hilleary Rotten Clinton and all the lefty, liberal Demonrats and Hollywood porn pedos? Did all the hatred and rage against the liberal "bi-asses" media against Trump and the rage against the liberal US deplorables bother you at all? Why did you never complain about the Bushes, Obamas, Clintons, etc. taking down of this country? You ought to know better ..."
Again – and regrettably so - it seems that these dear Christians missed the point I was trying to make – that they are in grave danger of falling into the same trap that the German people made with regard to Hitler: ie., that Hitler would deliver them from the Cabaret Society and narcissism that socialists in Germany had introduced into German society after Germany's defeat in World War I; and more than that, he would re-introduce Christianity as the foundation of German society. Indeed, Hitler promised to -
"... maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests. It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality."
But Hitler – like Trump – was no real Christian as the history of the Third Reich so prominently reveals; unhappily for these Christians, IT'S 1933 ALL OVER AGAIN; American Christians are clamoring to join Trump's crusade to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and to overthrow the immorality of the Clinton-Obama years. Indeed, Chip Berlet, a veteran analyst of the American right, says that –
"We are in the midst of one of the most significant right-wing populist rebellions in United States history, We see around us a series of overlapping social and political movements populated by people [who are] angry, resentful, and full of anxiety. They are raging against the machinery of the federal bureaucracy and liberal government programs."
THESE ARE EXACTLY THE PEOPLE THAT VOTED FOR TRUMP IN 2016.
"'Patriot' groups believe that Obama and his 'liberal cohorts' want to impose multiculturalism and a 'brown / black' society on the United States through unchecked immigration from non-European societies, particularly from Mexico and Latin America."
In our article, "When Fascism Comes to America" we described the process whereby otherwise "good" people are turned into MONSTERS capable of doing "HORRIBLE THINGS" - the kind of fiendish process which took hold of "good" Germans in the 1930s and made them culpable as a WHOLE people in the crazed and lunatic genocide of the Jews, the kind of process about which Harley Sorenson asked himself rhetorically in April of 2002: In that year, a worried Harley Sorenson --- reviewing the growing suppression of individual rights in the United States in the wake of the 9-11 attacks, and the state-sponsored brutality it had unleashed against certain targeted groups in the U.S. and abroad --- wrote:
"One of life's mysteries, for me, is how masses of people can do the incredibly cruel things they do. Individual brutality makes a certain amount of sense in that it's limited to one person. But mass brutality?
"I think this subject first came to mind after I read Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf and William L. Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, A History of Nazi Germany.
"There was nothing in either book that told me how such a highly civilized and culturally advanced nation as Germany could sink to the level of the Nazis.
"'How could that happen'? I wondered. 'What is there about the Germans that allowed them to become the MONSTERS they became? How are they different than the rest of us'?
"So I spent a month pondering the question.
"The answer I came up with satisfied me then, and it satisfies me still: There is nothing different about the World War II Germans. WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE. It could happen to us. We are no better than them."
As Pogo so famously said:
"We has met the enemy and he is us."
It's in this sense, dear Christians, that I implore you to stay clear of the rage that is now dividing the nation. Remember that your real home is in heaven and that you are just a pilgrim passing through. [Please see our article, "This is not our Home." ]
Finally, the thought that I have never attacked the Clinton-Obama machine is simply not true: please see our article on the Clinton Killing Machine – "Understanding the Total Corruption of Babylon the Great: It's Not Just the Right that is Corrupt, but it's the Left as Well."
God bless all of you,
In His love,
WE URGE YOU TO TAKE A STAND AND PUBLICALLY WITNESS AGAINST THE CHURCH'S ALMOST UNREASONING SUPPORT OF DONALD TRUMP. [PLEASE SEE OUR ARTICLE, "TRUMP AS THE ANTI-CHRIST."]
SPEAK OUT (ie., WITNESS) AGAINST THE DECEPTION OF THE FALSE PROPHETS OF TODAY'S CHURCH LIKE JOHN HAGEE.
The WHITE ROSE SOCIETY was a group formed by students Hans and Sophie Scholl and a band of Christian friends and professors. Their common goal was to stand against the Nazi regime that was terrorizing their country in the early 1940's, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY TO DECLARE THAT CHRIST WAS THE SUPREME POWER AND NOT ADOLPH HITLER. They secretly wrote and printed leaflets behind a church organ. They would then take as many as 2000 of them at a time and randomly distribute this bold writing in cities such as Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Vienna, Frieburg, Saarbreuken and Mannheim. As a result of taking part in these activities, seven of its members were executed between February 1943 and October 1944.
THE QUESTION HERE, AS IT WAS FOR SOPHIE AND HANS SCHOLL IS THIS: DO YOU FEAR MORE THE WRATH OF MAN OR THE WRATH OF GOD??
Finally, we urge you to download our flyers and pass them out; nail them to trees, lamp-posts; place them on cars, in windows; hand them to your neighbors and friends, etc. Download flyers to be passed out to friends and neighbors and pinned on trees, in windows, on church bulletin boards, etc.
In the light of all that's been happening recently - and we speak here of the Trump presidency, Islamic terrorism, the new anti-Semitism directed against both Jews and the Jewish state (Israel), the growing storm clouds over the Middle east which are harbingers of the coming Gog / Magog War, and that my wife and I can recover fully from our illnesses so that the work of the ministry can continue with vigor. In connection with the work of the ministry, we DESPERATELY need your financial help if we are to continue on with the work God has given us. The help you send will not accrue to any single individual, but will be directed to the effort of the ministry to bring TRUTH to you that you cannot receive anywhere else.
We ask you to bear in mind what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts.
