In May of 2017, I wrote in the Daily Jot what I saw as a growing civil war in America. I quoted as an example a University of Hawaii professor who wanted to eliminate white men from academia because she believed “actual solutions require women of color and trans people”. Piper Harron, a black female, wrote, “If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth)…you are the problem. Your very presence.” These types of conclusions have been brewing in a cauldron of class warfare for years. It is from the Marxist playbook, collectively seeking to overthrow America. The riots in various US cities today are a reflection of Marxism more than they are protesting racism.
Racism, in this case, was the spark. The subsequent fire is resultant of Marxists hijacking the moment of crisis. Americans are like the legendary frog in the boiling pot. Constitutional scholar, radio host and Fox News contributor Douglas V. Gibbs, in his January 2011 blogspot, politicalpistachio, observed: “The United States, however, despite the belief that this is a free country, has been under the assault of the same collectivist forces that guided the Bolsheviks and Soviet communists. American culture has been infiltrated, and though the process of turning our society into a communal system has been much slower, applied in an incremental manner, the American system is also moving in a direction of utopianism under the invisible hand of social engineering, and orchestrated class warfare.”
Gibbs continued, “The liberals use political correctness to mask their true intent. They have discouraged any debate over their true motives, censoring their opposition through ridicule and accusations. The discussion has omitted language that may betray their social engineering, income redistribution, class warfare, and any form of affirmative action that might become associated with these foregoing notions. Eliminating these ideas from the public debate, while acting upon them, has enabled them to fill the political discussion with propaganda that pit the wealthy against the poor, the religious against non-believers, sexual perversion against anyone who dares to question the “normalcy” of their abnormal behavior, and of course pitting the various ethnicities and races against each other.”
Gibbs’ astute observations nine years ago have become the rising tide today. It is the dialectic on steroids—thesis, antithesis, synthesis. The more outrageous the claim (the antithesis), the faster people move toward the new thesis (synthesis). These are ingredients for revolution and tyranny. As stated in Micah 7:6-7, “For the son dishonors the father, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. Therefore, I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.” We must pray and act. We must stand in the gap and make up the hedge, point out the tyranny of censorship and freedom of thought. Expose to your family, neighbors and friends—respectfully—the folly of these machinations of evil.
