It would appear that most who do not have a discerning spirit miss the point of what leftist politicians are saying these days. One of the examples is when they cry “This is not democratic” in cases like the recent vote to approve Supreme Court Justice Amy Barrett. In 2016, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocked the immediate past president’s leftist Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, and President Trump eventually got the pick. Now the Democrats are crying foul because McConnell engineered the approval of Barrett before the election. The Democrats say it’s unfair; it isn’t democratic; and that the court should be expanded (“packed”) to prevent the conservative majority.
What does all this really mean? When they say it’s not democratic, they are saying the process did not favor them because they were in the minority and lost the vote. Everything about the Barrett approval and the Garland non-approval was democratic. The American people voted a majority of Republicans into the Senate. It is the Senate’s responsibility to advise and consent. That “consent” part means the Senate gets to vote on the nominee. In both cases—Garland and Barrett—the majority had the power to do what they did. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, the confirmation of Barrett “will go down as one of the darkest days in the 231-year history of the United States Senate.” Now there are riots and talk about changing how judges are approved. How democratic is that?
Another example is Hillary Clinton. Clinton told a New York Times Opinion network podcast that it “makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions, and damaging of our norms and our values, and lessening of our leadership, and the list goes on.” Many would think that Clinton was talking about American political institutions, American norms and values, and American leadership. In reality, she is talking about the leftist Democratic Party’s institutions (the swamp), the Democratic Party’s norms, values and leadership. The longer Trump is in office, the more threatened are those tenets of HER leftist political machine—not the ideals of America.
Clinton was the one who made a big deal about Trump not accepting the results of the election. Until she lost. Then she went to court to overturn the electoral college and the Democratic Party has been trying to remove Trump from office ever since. You see, these people do not speak in terms of American values or of the American Ideal, they speak in terms of radical leftist values and want you to think that all Americans embrace what they are saying. These same people claim to be Christians, but their deeds speak otherwise. So it would reason that they are deceptive like the city spoken of in Zephaniah 3:3, “She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the LORD, She has not drawn near to her God.” Pretty difficult to do when your god is government and power.
