Let’s review the outcomes from the COVID-19 crisis:
- Most sweeping restrictions, surveillance, and confinement of Americans indefinitely without due process in the history of America? Check!
- Endless welfare, debt, and spending? Check!
- Mass release of criminals? Check!
- More foreign workers as a time of record unemployment? Check!
- More rights for illegal aliens to come and remain here? Check!
Why is it that every policy outcome from this crisis is a long-standing liberal priority, even when the several outcomes contradict the rationale underlying some of the others?
I find myself repeating that saying when I consider the catastrophic results of liberal, left-wing, progressive government in so many US cities and states, particularly in the so-called Rust Belt and on the East and West Coasts. It’s particularly visible in urban areas. So many of them exhibit precisely the same signs of decay and incipient social collapse that I’m beginning to think it can’t be coincidental, or even accidental. I’m more and more convinced that the loony left is actually planning this, as a way to make the citizens of those cities more and more dependent on their (ineffectual) governments just to survive the dystopia in which they live.
I know it’s deliberate. In the mid-90s, at a neighborhood association meeting in Dayton, Ohio, a city commissioner came to speak to us about the city budget plan (the topic of discussion). The city commission was made up of five members – 4 Democrats and a token Republican (the result of having ‘at large’ elections for the positions. It’s now 100% Democrat.) The Democrat commissioner told us that they were actually PLANNING on the whole city population being welfare recipients.
I no longer reside in that city.
The Catholic Church has an homosexual infiltration problem. The public schools have a Democrat, NEA, AND homosexual problem.
In a story that doesn’t hold together very well, Lisa Page launches her spin campaign just a week before the Department of Justice inspector general, Horowitz, is to release his report, providing reason to believe she has struck a deal with DOJ prosecutors.
Any public person, group, company or church that identifies as Christian will be forced to take a stand on the question of whether or not they celebrate the LGBTQ lifestyle regardless of whether they want to or not, even if they barely care about the issue. That’s the plan. Because the Bible presents a clear position that is counter to the prevailing culture, it is an easy avenue of attack. The hate on this issue is one-sided. Christian theology teaches to love the sinner while hating the sin. Anti-Christian leftists practice hating the Christian while celebrating the sin. Christian unwillingness to celebrate the sin is the offense that cannot be overlooked.
People do not embrace an intellectual abstraction like “equality” because it is self-evidently true, but rather because, as he says, they fear that they are somehow disadvantaged in the competition of life. Thus, whatever advantages are enjoyed by the winners in the competition are condemned as unfair — a violation of equality — and from this emerges a politics of envy called “social justice.” We see this, for example, in demands for “free” health care and “free” college tuition. Because more affluent people can afford to pay cash to send their kids to Harvard, according to this egalitarian “social justice” mentality, it is unfair that less fortunate people are effectively excluded from elite schools or, if they can gain admission to Harvard, must borrow money to attend.
It says “all men are created equal…”. It does not mean they will stay that way. Equality of outcome is NOT a feature of a free society.
