Skip to comments.Chanukah's lesson about America in 2012

Since the November elections we have never seen so much despondency and despair. We're hearing from so many people who say they are depressed, see no way out, and are just giving up.
And, yes, things are looking worse than ever before.
Four more years of Barack Obama. More socialist politicians elected to Congress.
And the "opposition" Republican leadership with no backbone or will to fight back.
"It's finished. America's done. I'm giving up." We're hearing that everywhere. People are feeling beaten and completely powerless.
Today is the 8th and final day of the Jewish holiday Chanukah. Most people (and sadly, most Jews) see Chanukah as sort of a Jewish version of Christmas. They don't really understand what it's about and what it teaches us. It celebrates something very important about man and God.
Actually, Chanukah is very relevant to what we're going through right now. It's about struggling against - and ultimately winning, with God's help - a seemingly unwinnable culture war against an oppressive government thoroughly dominated by pagan and godless forces determined to permanently change society.
History is full of seemingly hopeless situations that were overcome by people who refused to give up. The American Revolution is a good example.
Finally, we believe there's yet another message to Chanukah. You can't sit on the sidelines. It's necessary for people to leave their comfort zones and take action, if it's going to happen.
Lately, many people have been saying that they've decided to fight this battle by just praying and fasting. Well, praying and fasting are good things. But the message of Chanukah is that that's not enough. People must be part of the fight.
America isn't over yet!

Even this blog post omits the most relevant part of the Chanukah story: It was mostly a civil war, with the equivalent of United Nations assimilationists taking over the society’s institutions including schools and Temple.
And the Maccabees and their supporters were more like ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ than Idaho preppers.
