As America begins to reopen in May, citizens should consider what this means. In reality, it means a new normal. We all need to exercise great care. On one hand, we need to take precautions that we are safe. On the other hand, we need to get this nation back to work and our economy on the road to recovery. Two things must recover—the physical health of our citizens and the economic health of our businesses. We have had a couple of months to figure out how to be responsible by keeping distance, wearing face covering, washing hands, using common sense. Don’t be a renegade. Do the right thing. But there is one more healing that must take place, and I have little hope that it will.
The political left needs to heal their hate. It’s a visceral hate for President Trump and all those who support him or would vote for him. To the political left—which includes the Democratic Party, most of Hollywood, and most of the news media—anyone who doesn’t believe like them is an enemy of the state–To the point that they will sacrifice lives to see their opposition fail. There is no better example of this than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) holding up for over a week badly needed, life-saving funding for COVID-19 relief to advance her socialist agenda with funding for pet projects unrelated to the spread of the virus. She and presidential candidate Joe Biden opposed Trump’s early ban on travel from China.
These people have hammered Trump, Christians, conservatives every day this year. If it wasn’t impeachment allegations, it was attacks about COVID-19. And now it will be attacks on the economy, unemployment, more investigations, and sob stories about what has happened. But they will not offer any solutions. They will not offer to come along side and work together as Americans and solve this crisis and the pending challenges that will result from it. Their hate is too great. They wish to attack. They wish to criticize. They wish to obstruct. They wish to accuse others to hide their own actions of doing exactly what they accuse. They are vessels of hate, of self-righteousness anchored in political intolerance and ideological bigotry. Every day there is a new quote illustrating their hate.
Celebrity Howard Stern wins this week’s award for hate-mongering. On his Monday Sirius XM show he went on a rant against Trump and ALL his supporters. Stern said, “I would love it if Donald would get on TV and take an injection of Clorox and let’s see if his theory works…Or hold a big rally…with all of his followers, and let them hug each other and kiss each other and have a big, big rally.” Then Co-host Robin Quivers said, “A big cocktail of disinfectant.” And Stern replied, “Yeah, and all take disinfectant and all drop dead.” There have been similar comments from many on the left. This hatred is a huge festering sore in the soul of this nation. In Christ’s prophetic chronology of the end times in Matthew 24:12, he said, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” We can see how this prophecy can unfold. Sadly.
