seeing in our society today is a natural outcome of that change.

go from bad to worse as they deceive others and are themselves deceived” (2

unsuspecting with smooth talk and flattering words” (Romans 16:18).

The Left –
as opposed to classic liberalism and classic conservativism - poses the
greatest threat to America, liberty, and religion. If you don’t understand
that, take some time to read the articles at this link. And today the Left is
working full-force to take over America and to hijack the Democratic Party.
Leftism gave us such twentieth-century societal devastation as fascist Italy,
Nazi Germany, and the takeover of Russia by the Communists. Remember, American
fought two World Wars and one Cold War over those ideologies birthed by Karl
Ronald Reagan famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away
from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must
be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we
will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children
what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
America faces her greatest danger in decades of losing her freedom.
Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich does an excellent job explaining how Karl
Marx’s destructive philosophies have slowly but steadily become a serious
threat to the United States. See his article Three Generations of Brainwashing are Paying Off for the Left.
Left that embrace Marx’s ideology gradually took over much of the academic
world, and students who had been taught systematic falsehoods then took those
falsehoods into their jobs. Reagan again said, “The trouble with our liberal

often a megaphone for the Left, pushes a certain narrative in keeping with
their Leftist agenda. The last several years have shown the average American
that reality with the habitual fake news: the Russia collusion hoax and the phony
impeachment obsession to name a few.
seven deceptive narratives the Left currently uses to play Americans:
1. The Black
Lives Matter narrative
As Dr. Al Mohler said, while we certainly should affirm the statement that black lives
matter – just as all lives matter – we cannot embrace the movement of Black
founder says they are "trained Marxists" - "trained
organizers." This is right out of the Karl Marx or Saul Alinsky playbook.
The goal is not to help blacks and whites get along better. The goal is to tear down
American democracy and replace it with a socialist, Marxist government. That is
why they HAVE TO GO AFTER OUR SYMBOLS, STATUES, AND MEMORIALS TO THE PAST.
New York Black
Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome warned that if America “doesn’t give us
what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.”
organize chaos and play on the emotions of well-intentioned citizens. The
riots, looting, and tearing down of statues is EXTREMELY ORGANIZED,
WELL-PLANNED, AND DEEPLY FUNDED. When the riots began, suddenly large stacks of
bricks appeared in city after city, ready for looters to use. Many of
rioters are bussed in. Not by people who genuinely care for black people in all
of this - but people who want to destroy our democracy.

Sherrif David Clarke, a black American, tells us that the mainstream media will not tell us the truth about the Black Lives Matter movement.
See the article Top Ten Reasons I Won't Support the Black Lives Matter Movement.
2. The “Be
afraid of the Left and keep quiet” narrative.
a century has used fear to intimidate its opponents into submission. The Nazi Party
knew in the 1930’s it was necessary for them to get the church under their
thumb if they were to take over the German people. They systematically wielded pressure, violence, blackballing, and severe bullying against the church and
anyone who disagreed with their propaganda.
operates in full swing today in our country. It’s not just whispering in the
corners – it is now slapping us in the face. Did you hear of Principal Tiffany Wiley of Windsor, Vermont, who was fired recently by the School Board because
she tweeted a concern about BLM tactics? These types of moves then make
hundreds or thousands of other people AFRAID that if they dare to CHALLENGE THE
CULTURAL NARRATIVE that they too may lose their jobs.
weekend, here in South Carolina, two different friends messaged me, thanking me for my
challenge-the-narrative writings and posts. They both said they agree
with me – but both are afraid to express their views for fear of losing their
jobs. Folks, that is not America. That is Marxist Leftism.

3. The “Law
enforcement is systemically racist against black people” narrative.
of the Manhattan Institute has done extensive research on law enforcement and racial bias. Her findings overwhelmingly show that the idea of widespread
racial bias by police is a myth that simply does not exist.
Wall Street Journal article, “The Myth of Systemic Police Racism,” she shares,
“A solid body of evidence finds no structural bias in the criminal-justice
system with regard to arrests, prosecution or sentencing. Crime and suspect
behavior, not race, determine most police actions.”
Williams, African-American professor of economics, says, “While it
might not be
popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of
black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been
called 'systemic racism.' ” See his article The True Plight of Black Americans.

problem in today’s cultural narrative is that the Left plays off of emotional
reactions – not systematic facts and logic.

Jordan Peterson and African-American Brandon Tatum say there's nothing more racist than targeting an entire
ethnic group with a collective crime regardless of the innocence or guilt of
its individuals. Listen to them here.
4. The “It’s
ok for them to loot and steal, because peaceful protests have not worked”
This is one
line of reason I have heard several times recently, and it greatly bothers me.
Dennis Prager writes, “America is being taken over by violent mobs; a vast amount of
destruction and stealing has taken place (with little police intervention and
the apathy of our political leaders). Why aren't all clergy delivering
thundering sermons about the Seventh Commandment, ‘Thou shalt not steal’? Does
it now come with an asterisk?
part of a major American city has been seized and occupied by peo
ple who hate
America and its values, including its Judeo-Christian values. Heard any clergy
(aside from some evangelical Christians) speaking out against it?”
children were preschoolers or elementary-age, and they got angry and hit each
other or broke something, I routinely told them, “You have until you are
seventeen to learn self-control. If you do that when you are eighteen, they
will take you to jail.”
Thomas Sowell says,"Have
we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held
responsible for things that happened before they were born,
while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing
does not work when violence becomes acceptable.
As Congressman Jeff Duncan
shared this week, "We are no
longer dealing with legal peaceful protests, folks. This is organized, criminal activity that’s taken over our cities - including targeting federal property,
memorials, and religious entities. The sad part is, these extremists and
rioters actually believe violently tearing down decades-old monuments and memorials
or vandalizing churches will incite positive change. And what’s worse - the
fact that we have liberal politicians running these cities who are SCARED to do
anything about it. In fact, many of them are SUPPORTING these violent efforts
and refusing to allow law enforcement to intervene!"

5. The “Don’t
offend anyone” narrative.
academic leftists pushed the idea that truth is relative for a generation,
after them arose a generation trained by the first that embraced a new standard
(to use an absolute term!) for making moral decisions: don’t offend.
Even in my
small, South Carolina, liberal arts (with the emphasis on liberal),
college in the early 1990’s, I remember the chairman of the English department
telling his class of seniors that the way to make moral decisions was to decide
what would offend the least number of people.
later, we have endured this instruction ad nauseam – and we are paying the
price. A generation sometimes called "snowflakes" emerged.
when we jettison the idea of concrete, factual, objective truth , eventually
you create a society where “might becomes right” – whoever uses enough force
wins. The Left has worked for generations now to tell us not to offend – but what
they MEAN is to not offend THEM.
offered a loud narrative of what they will accept and what they will not. For
years the line was, “Just accept everything and we will all get along fine.”
But wise cultural observers knew that was not the agenda. The reality is, when
the Left is in power, they discard the “nice guy” façade – and they punish
whoever disagrees with their agenda.
The Left thrives off of getting society to believe lies. In contrast, truth – by nature
– carries offense – or at least it makes us uncomfortable. Like when I get on
the scale in the morning. The truth stands in contrast to our selfishness, the
lusts and cravings of our bodies, and our ability to do horrible things when
there are no restraints.
this illustrated in our society any more than sexuality. We have jettisoned the
almost-oldest truth in humanity’s history: that God specifically created two
genders – male and female – and created marriage and family to be marked by one
man and one woman. We have jettisoned biology and science to embrace the lie
that there are multiple genders and many acceptable approaches to sex and
Jenner was “deciding to become a woman,” my mother told me, “If Bruce Jenner
doesn’t know what sex he is, he needs to go into the bathroom, take off his
clothes, and look in the mirror.” If that offends someone, so be it. It is
true. And truth, by nature, carries offense.

Carson’s We Need to Stop Getting Offended.
6. “The way
to a better future is to erase the past” narrative
is classic Marxism – they did the exact same thing in the USSR (tearing down
crosses and churches, confiscating Bibles), Communist Cuba, and Nazi Germany.
Trained Marxists – trained organizers – ride on the wave of “being offended”
and then systematically remove anything from society that doesn’t fit their
have ridden this absurd tide of “don’t offend anyone” or “fear their
retaliation” to a ridiculous result. Aunt Jemima. Really? Have we dipped that low? I submit to you that if you are offended by syrup, you have much deeper
Gone With the Wind. The Dukes of Hazzard. Statues and monuments. And the most ridiculous
to date – Mary Poppins. Why? Because the chimney sweeps have soot on their
faces, which is obviously a racial slur. If you believe that, then you have
already lost your marbles.
And the latest as of this writing is that statues and stained glass window depictions of "white Jesus" are offensive and need to be removed.
As George Orwell prophetically wrote, “Every record has been destroyed or falsified,
every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street
building has been renamed, every date has been altered.”
this when they want to set up a totalitarian state – when any thought that does
not agree with the cultural narrative is suppressed, punished, and removed.
Governor Mike Huckabee writes, "It's an
all-out assault on all American history and culture, and everything and everyone
who did something to contribute to it."

7. The “We
need to focus on color” narrative.
most white people don’t hate black people, and most
black people don’t hate white people. In the America I know, blacks,
whites, Hispanics, Asians, etc., get along, look out for each other, and work
media constantly pushes the focus on color narrative.
Prager, an American Jew, for years has challenged the
narrative that America is a racist nation: "I am increasingly impatient
with the libel that America is racist. Yes, there are racists in America – of
all colors. But knowledge of history should restrain one from making unfair
generalizations.” He writes, “America is the least
racist multiracial society in the world. On a daily basis, Americans
of every race and ethnicity get
along superbly.” And, by the way, he believes that hatred of Jewish people
is the oldest racism that exists – far longer than racism toward blacks.
Are there racists? Of course. Most blacks have probably been called the "n" word at some time. My son was called "cracker" at his public high school. It happens. (And my son said the black teen boys called each other the "n" word MUCH MORE than any whites used that slur.)
Black radio host Larry Elder says, "Racism is not
in America's DNA."
And black woman Candace Owens discusses BLM and black America in her episode What Does Black America Want?
teaches there is one race – the human race – all created in God’s image. It is
an offense to the Creator Elohim to hate His creation.
If we don’t
want racism to be a thing, then we must deal with the reality that racism and
discrimination goes many ways. Many Christians - and pastors - are only
speaking one narrative - "white people should treat black people
better." That is like saying, to a truck driver with an eighteen-wheeler
with every tire flat – “Which tire do you want to change?”
That is ONLY
ONE PART OF A MUCH LARGER AND MORE COMPLEX STORY GOING ON HERE. Christians, pastors, and leaders, what are you
addressing today? If the only thing you are saying is that white people need to
treat black people better, then the truck is going to have one working tire!
If we want
to get past racism, one of the best ways is to STOP TALKING ABOUT COLOR. Stop
talking about white people and black people, white Americans and black
Americans, European-Americans and African-Americans.
The Left and
the media love to keep a crisis spinning in our country so that we “need” them.
And they must keep our differences before us constantly in order to achieve the
purposes of the Left.
African-American scholar Shelby Steele says, "It seems to
me that in many ways it’s about power. In order to pursue power as they do, you
have to have victims. Wow, the excitement that creates on the Left. It
validates their claims that America is a wretched country, and they must get
their recourse. It feeds this old model of operation that we’ve developed, that
America is guilty of racism, guilty of this sin, and has been for 400 years,
and minorities are victims who are entitled.
people start to talk about systemic racism, built into the system, what they’re
really doing is expanding the territory of entitlement. We want more. We want
society to give us more. Society is responsible for us, because racism is so
systemic. Well, that’s a corruption, and I know it’s a corruption, because the
truth of the matter is blacks have never been less oppressed than they are today."

back in time and wonder how religious people, especially religious leaders --
specifically, the clergy -- could have failed in times of moral crisis. The
failure of most rabbis, priests and pastors to speak out today -- when the risk
to personal safety is so much less than it was in communist and fascist
countries -- should provide the answer: Religion doesn't have all that much
impact on most religious people. During comfortable times, it provides two
essentials to a happy and fulfilled life -- community and meaning -- but when
