They were always deadly serious about criminalizing Christianity and killing free speech, but now the American left has stopped pretending otherwise. In a recent column titled, Why Are They Called Homofascists? Heres Why, I wrote that progressive, Christian-hating fascists but I repeat myself are hell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God.
I was referring specifically to the lefts well-organized and highly disturbing character assassination of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich for his private support of natural marriage. I was also addressing the larger goal of the American left to completely shut down free speech and freedom of religion and to severely punish anyone who maintains both biblically and biologically correct views on human sexuality.
I closed with this: They smell blood in the water. Ive often said that these folks want those who speak biblical truth about human sexuality and legitimate marriage either 1) dead, 2) imprisoned or, if they can have neither of these, 3) marginalized to the point where they cant even support their families.
Check No. 3 off the list. I guess theyre working backwards.
The very next day, and as if right on cue, lefty rag Slate magazine vomited evidence of my claims. It could not have been better scripted if Id written it myself.
In an article titled, Purge the Bigots, Slate writer William Saletan penned these chilling words: Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But lets not stop here. If were serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.
More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California, he continued. Why do these bigots still have jobs? Lets go get them.
Now, to be fair, Saletan later claimed that his article was intended as satire to illustrate the hypocrisy of his own progressive movement. Many, if not most, of his readers seemed to miss the joke,and the articles comments section quickly filled with people agreeing that it was, indeed, time to purge the bigots (read: Christians).
The Fox News Channel observed that the piece may or may not be tongue-in-cheek. Satire is traditionally somewhat clever, witty and fairly easy to recognize as such. Mr. Saletans piece was none of these things. Nevertheless, I will give him the benefit of the doubt.
Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute noted, The problem with Saletans satirical piece is that, unlike Swifts A Modest Proposal, Saletans is not outrageous enough. It should be outrageous enough for a satire, but unfortunately, homosexual activists and their allies are tyrannical enough to do just what hes proposing.
I know there are many progressives who think such a proposal is defensible, she observed. In fact, eight years ago, a colleague (AMM) at Deerfield High School told me that she is so sure conservative beliefs about homosexuality are wrong that they shouldnt be allowed to be spoken in public schools even if kids are studying homosexuality-affirming resources. And she was not speaking satirically.
So here we have Mr. Saletan playing the role of todays Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitlers Nazi propaganda minister, in an effort, albeit a clumsy one, to underscore how utterly out of control his own progressive movement has become and, in the spirit of argumentum ad absurdum, gently coax his fellow bohemians from madness.
Slate was apparently in on the fun too, pretending, for a day, to be Nationalsozialistischen Briefe, Goebbels parallel publication, in an equally awkward attempt to use the power of metaphor as a scrub brush to wash away the stench of totalitarianism from an American left bathed in it.
But as you read the article a frightening reality quickly rises to the surface. Its neither funny nor untrue. None of it. The cultural Marxist American left is 100-percent serious about purging Christians from society.
Theyre as serious as Josef Stalins heart attack.
Continued Saletan: To organize the next stage of the purge, Ive compiled the financial data into three tables (he actually did this). He then listed details from, and linked to, the Proposition 8 hit list reportedly leaked by the Obama IRS and meticulously assembled and published by the Los Angeles Times.
This was all by design. Its what led to Brendan Eichs career beheading. But Eich was just the opening act. The list provides the exact names, employers, places of residence and dollar amounts of every single person in America who donated even a dime to the Golden States campaign to protect natural marriage (I realize its hopelessly symbolic, but as matter of principle I will not link to the list).
This is a level of voter intimidation and journalistic terrorism on the part of the Obama administration and the L.A. Times that is unprecedented in American history.
Joking or not, Herr Saletan then gave the rainbow-shirts their jackbooted marching orders: If were serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, wed better get cracking on the rest of the list, he said, concluding, otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.
You do understand this, right? Obama, the L.A. Times and Americas larger progressive movement are dead serious about purging Christians and other traditionalists from both the workplace and society at large. Its coming. Mozilla was just the opening salvo.
In the very same way Eichs forced resignation was deliberately calculated to terrorize any American who might resist the lefts sexual anarchist agenda, and support some future, legally executed pro-family ballot initiative, the clear purpose behind releasing the Prop 8 donor list was to instill terror in the hearts of Christians and other traditionalists who support natural marriage, family and human sexuality. It was a not-so-subtle shot over the bow.
It was also a call to arms.
Its fight or flight time, America.
Ive made my choice.
What about you? I say that if we once crushed fascism from without
we can sure as hell crush it from within.
I’ve made my choice too.
I will be in DC on May 16th for what is billed as “American Spring”.
But I am praying for a “Great American Awakening 2014”.
and Today is San Jacinto Day. Remember 18 minutes on April 21st 1836.
Of course articles such as the one by Saletan are intentional. They are specifically written to ‘test the waters’. If the response is overwhelmingly supportive, then the article was meant to support the cause written about. If, however, the reaction is entirely negative, then it was revealed to have been satire. This is the MO for BHO. He sends lesser folks to do questionable things. If the reaction is supportive, then that was his intent. If not, then the person is ‘punished’ and BHO has clean hands. Unfortunately the IRS scandal puts him in the blast radius. Hopefully the Benghazi scandal proves equally as hazardous.
Worse is yet to come.
Can't wait for the train wreck when the homos and left have to worry about the moslems. We all know Christians and moslems and the habits of both. One being peaceful, the other not so much. One day Christians will be exonerated and the homos and the left will have to ask themselves, 'Why did we support moslems?' I'll spend days on end laughing out loud. May even fall over from laughing out loud.
Happy San Jacinto day!
Kaslin, if a Happy Passover Holiday time is needed to be wished from me and mine then is wished. Another wish for you and yours, Kaslin.
Christians actually object to beheading and crucifixions increasingly carried out by Muslims. Liberals? ...not so much.
That was done in their 2012 national convention when they decided to “purge” any reference to God. That’s seemingly gone unnoticed by the GOPES and by the major Christian denominations including Catholic. Even preacher Graham hasn’t reference it when he was busy praising Putin for his stand on sodomy.
Then everybody wonders why most utterances that come from members of that party’s and the regime they run mouth are lies or urging of amoral behavior such as the Colorado ads for zerocare are happening. There is no God; therefore there is no such thing as sin.
Yes, of course. This has been obvious for several years.
Richard Kim of “The Nation” magazine, on MSNBC:
“Here’s a disturbing thing. I did ask some of my gay activist friends, I was like, “Look, here’s a list; 6,500 people gave the same amount that he did or more in California. Should we go down the list and sort of start targeting all these people?” And I asked this facetiously, and people were like, “Let’s do it. Let’s find out where those people live...”
Facetiousness is lost to the cantaloupe level of intelligence displayed by the “Left”. It is just a waste of time. The “Left” will never get it. Never.
Kinda odd that the Chekist gets it right and Steve Dunham does not. What an upside down world. It feels like the Powers that Be really want to destroy this country.
They have one step to go in California before banning Christians from serving as judges:
Don’t worry. We’re told that voting every other year will take care of everything.
