Convention contrasts

The coverage of the Republican National Convention continues to be skewed and misrepresented by the news media and Democrats who are having apoplexy over the “God and Country” approach from mainstream America speakers providing a positive view of our country along with warnings against Democratic Party socialism. There is story after story that establish a false fact and then fact-checking the GOP speakers against the false fact. The media and Democrats are assuming their opinions as fact and anything that disagrees with their opinions is a lie. This misrepresentation of events is incredible. Seeing the convention first-hand and observing the reports on it are as if you didn’t see the same thing.

The Democrats are calling the convention a “dark” portrayal of America. This is once again, them making an accusation of exactly what they did or are doing. Convention speakers are heralding the unique and positive characteristics of America and warning that our way of life is facing a clear and present danger in the blatant socialism advocated by the Democrats and the Biden/Harris presidential candidacy. For example, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Republicans opposing “vote by mail” are “doing everything they can [to] suppress the vote with their actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this. It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state.” In reality, it’s just the opposite. They are trying to ensure voting integrity.

But this is indicative of the political intolerance and ideological bigotry of the socialists. It is exactly what speaker after speaker, from farmers to loggers to fishermen to walk away Democrats to elected officials, are warning about. Never in history has there been such a socialist-advocating presidential ticket by a major political party as is Biden/Harris. From the acceptance of socialist Bernie Sanders (D-VT) healthcare to Alexandria Casio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal, these people want to release prisoners, defund police, provide healthcare to noncitizens, open borders, mandate the closing of businesses that do not support their positions, and cancel the fee speech and freedom of worship by anyone who disagrees with them. You don’t have to speculate on these things, they are saying them and doing them.

We have some very difficult challenges in this country. It is not perfect. We are seeing first-hand the outcome of leaving education of our children to people who do not reflect Judeo-Christian values. We are witnessing the results of electing career politicians and checking that box off that we don’t have to participate. We are experiencing the consequences of self indulgent, emotional and extra-biblical church. Sadly, these things took a long time to get in place, they will take even longer to correct. But it truly starts with Christ’s new commandment (John 13:34), “that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” Love is not always easy. It can’t be easy and still conquer all. There is a time for accountability in love, and that time is long spent for repentance and accountability. This convention is exposing it all.
