We have been repeatedly told by Feds that the real threat to society is not Antifa, or activist groups, or Jihadis. The real threats, so they say, are right-wing bigots.
That narrative is heard everywhere… including Congressional hearings. It’s echoed by the news, by social media, by major networks, and politicians. Even SLATE reported the fact that the NYTimes made a conscious editoral decision to pivot from ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ when the Mueller report failed, to running every story through a Trump-is-racist lens.
Sketchy propaganda outfits like the SPLC (who were spanked in court) denounce as dangerous anyone who isn’t to the left of Hillary Clinton… and that gets picked up as an excuse for Feds to target Latin Mass churches for ‘extremists’… which explains why so many people have been picking up our various corrupt FBI merch:
As a direct result of the extreme elevation of racism stories, casual bigotry is becoming commonplace.
The same people who call ‘diversity’ our strength and rise with indignation should anyone raise a concern about islamic extremism don’t even bat an eye at the use of ‘Christo-fascist’ or calling someone ‘white’ not as merely a physical description, but as a pejorative slur.
Dehumanizing and demonizing a group can be a dangerous practice with serious corrosive effects on our society. Like inciting violence against groups for no other reason but their race.
Which brings us up to speed in the story we see today, in which 66-year-old Lawrence Herr was minding his own business while installing a mailbox at his home near New Orleans… and somebody came along and shot him once in the back. The round came out through his chest. It was enough to kill him.
That would be tragedy enough if it followed the patterns of ordinary criminal acts — a robbery gone wrong, or a mentally unbalanced person lashing out, or getting caught up in a conflict between others.
But this one is different.
…Tahj Matthews, 23, and Maurice Holmes, 25, who are Black, were arrested the next day and charged with first-degree murder.
Matthews and Holmes are being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. A first-degree murder charge does not allow suspects to have bond, but the suspects’ defense attorneys filed a motion to reduce bond. That motion was denied during a hearing Tuesday.
At the hearing, the lead detective on the case, Nick Engler, was asked why Matthews and Holmes targeted Herr. Engler said that under questioning, Matthews said they “wanted to kill a white person,” WWL-TV reported. — NewsMax
There is plenty of external evidence to tie them to the incident, including one of them admitting to where the weapon was hidden.
A senior citizen was targeted for murder outside his own home … because he was ‘white’?
We keep hearing lectures on how using the wrong pronoun is harmful and dangerous to people who reject gender norms.
We don’t hear a thing about how an endless us-vs-them victim-and-oppressor narrative can generate the kind of hate and resentment that energized the violence seen in the Jim Crow South.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
