Let’s Destroy America to Save It
By Todd Strandberg
The collapse of the Roman Empire was the process of decline that took hundreds of years. Thanks to advancements in technology, the collapse of America is on speed dial. In Roman times it could take weeks to conduct business with a city just 30 miles down the road. Today we have instant communication that can transfer information from one location to another in a fraction of a second.
People are using the technology leap to do the devil’s business. They are destroying our nation in order to bring about a change that aligns with their political beliefs.
The liberal media have become one of the most destructive forces in America. They have reached the point where they will attack people with hardly any provocation. I grew up in Iowa, so I’m familiar with the leftist Des Moines Register. A few weeks ago, this newspaper ran a profile of Carson King, who rose to fame after raising more than $1 million when he appeared on ESPN’s popular “College GameDay” program with a sign asking for money for beer. King had said he would donate the money to a children’s hospital.
The Register wrote a profile of King that pointed to racist tweets King had posted when he was 16 years old. The Des Moines Register should have run the background check on reporter Aaron Calvin who wrote the story, because he had a history of racist tweets. Calvin was fired, but the Register’s editor Carol Hunter still has her job. “You’re angry, you’re disappointed and you want us to understand that,” Hunter wrote in a column. She needs to lose her job for approving the fiasco. Because, as soon as the controversy dies down, Hunter will be authorizing the needless victimization of some other person.
The UAW strike against GM has stretched into its third week. The press is focused on how the longer it lasts, the worse Michigan’s fragile economy becomes — with huge potential consequences for the 2020 presidential race. Years ago, the press would put pressure on both sides of an auto strike to bring about the quickest resolution. Today, the media are for the prolonging of any strike that supports their political allies.
I did a search of “GM strike” and found that nearly 30 news organizations all ran with the same headline, “It’s estimated the strike has cost GM $1 billion so far.” We are not even in a recession and we have a fixation on how much damage is being inflicted on our nation’s largest automaker. The UAW is proposing the strange move of staging a “no-confidence” vote for Chief Executive Mary Barra. A no-confidence vote by the UAW wouldn’t carry any force with GM or its board of directors. Only self-destructive people would attack the leader they’re trying to find a compromise with.
Hollywood has long been blamed for producing movies that glorify violence. The new movie “Joker” is just the latest film to earn this criticism. Warner Brothers responded to the controversy with a written statement: “neither the fictional character Joker, nor the film, is an endorsement of real-world violence of any kind. It is not the intention of the film, the filmmakers or the studio to hold this character up as a hero.”
Warner Brothers restricted access for print and broadcast journalists from the red carpet at the U.S. premiere of the movie. It also said that “Joker” would not be playing at the Cinemark Aurora theater where the 2012 “Dark Knight Rises” mass shooting took place, killing 12 and wounding 70.
What makes the Joker a dangerous sympathetic character is the claim he is just a product of the breakdown of social order. Everyone else is mad, so I’ll go shoot a bunch of people. The inability of the clapping-seal press to see the sinister trend in movies just shows how blind our society has become to an invasion of evil.
The most pressing threat to our nation is the so-called impeachment process playing out in Washington, DC. We have congressional members acting like they are judging on American Idol, thinking they remove President Trump with their single vote. All these liberals who say the impeachment process will be better for the Constitution and the people of this country would be singing a different tune if a Republican-controlled Congress was trying to remove a Democratic president just because they didn’t like him.
We are headed down the same path that leads to unrest and someone restoring order by declaring themselves to be our new head of state. To know our future is to simply ask the question: What do we collectively love the most?
“People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God– having a form of godliness but denying its power” (2 Timothy 3:2-5).
