Silence the lambs

It’s never good to have one political party in control of everything. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, not that the party in power needs any lessons on corruption. The Democratic Party is usurping the power of the people with its cancel culture and censorship. Voting to remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) from her committee assignments is denying the voters of her Georgia congressional district equal representation in Congress. It is no less than political intolerance, ideological bigotry. Granted, Green has said some questionable things and has beliefs that are contrary to a lot of people, but to deny her the ability to represent her constituents is tyranny. But there is more.

The power party also has suggested censoring Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO). The Senate Ethics Committee will conduct a secretive investigation into whether the two senators, who were champions of questioning election integrity, had a role inciting the assault on Capitol Hill—which the media and the Democratic Party are labeling an insurrection and coup attempt. The Chairman of the Senate Ethics Committee, Chris Coons, who holds President Joe Biden’s* old senate seat in Delaware, previously has called for Cruz and Hawley to resign because of their positions on election fraud. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) doesn’t support Cruz’ and Hawley’s positions, but said, “It’s a very slippery slope if you start punishing senators for holding unpopular views and exercising their rights on the Senate floor.”

The Democrats abhor Greene’s viewpoints on conspiracy theories, global warming, election fraud, QAnon and 911. They also want to make sure that everyone is silenced who disagrees with their opinions on the assault on Capitol Hill and whether Joe Biden* was the victor due to election fraud. This is where the tyranny is underscored. Think about the outrageous exhortations Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other Democrats have made to “punish” Trump supporters, which in some cases have excited violence, bullying, and threats. But that’s OK to the party in power because the party in power believes they are right and their targets deserving.

These ideological bigots want total compliance with their viewpoints. They are going so far as to deny people their rightful elected representation in Congress, and they have taken steps to prevent Trump Administration workers from getting jobs, and have labeled as “domestic terrorists” all 74 million people who voted for Trump. It’s the attempt to silence dissent, just as China has done with political and religious intolerance. Dissent toward the power party could be likened to the situation described in Jeremiah 11:19, “But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, ‘Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.” Their goal: Silence history, silence opposition, silence the lambs.
