I’ve been thinking about all the protests that have been happening around the country since Michael Brown tried to kill officer Wilson and I can’t seem to understand just why this mostly younger group of people have been killing, looting and just destroying everything others have worked for. Why are they so angry? What are they trying to say to the rest of America?
Now I know some of them are nothing but anarchists judging by the signs they carry: “No Cops. No Prisons!” or “There are no good cops in a racist system.” Do they get the irony in their messages? I mean if the system is racist that would mean there are no good people since we all come from the same system, or were cops just plopped on the earth as, say, a microorganism? Something that just developed to adapt to a crime ridden society?
What these young Einsteins don’t seem to understand is that whatever system they purport to be fighting for, they will have a master. So if you think the powers that be are racist now, just wait until they have a socialist society, but I guess it’s ok if socialist leaders simply murder or jail any opposition?? But maybe that’s what they mean when they talk about no prisons??
At least a few of these kids will grow up and see the error of their ways, how misplaced their idealism really is.
But that explains only one group. There is another group, the group that cannot be reached, the truly lost generation. The kids that grew up by government. The group that parents traded for a monthly welfare check. And I certainly do not mean all parents on welfare. I mean the group that gave up their responsibility without a fight.
Government got them and made them what they are. They’re destructive and violent because of what they’ve been force fed. They have no hope of a skill because they’re told why bother, the system won’t let you succeed. They’re morally bankrupt because the government that raises them is never held accountable, just like their parents. And spiritually lost because God has been replaced by envy and entitlement.
We live in the disposable age. When you’re done with something, throw it out, when you’re tired of something, get a new one, when you don’t like a law, burn it down, when you feel slighted, kill it.
These kids are being raised by professors that beat up cops on a bridge, by newspapers that say Mary was raped by God. Is there anyone paying attention??
I just started reading Tom Kovach’s book, Tribulation 2008 and I’m only a few pages in, but one thing made me stop and think! He states, “Jesus condemned certain specific categories of people in His day.”
“Those included the scribes, the Pharisees, the tax collectors and the moneychangers.” In modern times, those would be the news media, the lawyers and public educators (Pharisees were both), rogue bureaucrats and the bankers”. The same groups that raise these rioters.
Aside from this I have to ask, does anyone feel as though things are accelerated?? That we’re going down as a nation faster than ever before.
Hannity interviewed Eleanor Holmes, a Democratic congressperson, who said that the evidence of what happened in Ferguson doesn’t matter, it’s not her concern?!?! The facts are not her concern?
Shocking but is anyone really surprised? I mean their job is nearly done, the destruction nearly complete. We’re friends with Cuba, special deals for China and the Muslim brotherhood and Hamas is now off the terror list. Obama and the left have almost succeeded in normalizing evil.
And of course Obama golfs; you can almost see the little smirk on his face for a job well done.
If only the “protesters” could see what they’re doing, if only they could see how closely aligned they are with jihadists. Both want to tear it all down, one for a socialist utopia, one for a caliphate. America is being hit from all sides and the left is ushering in the very people Jesus condemned.
