Congressman: Tea Party Republicans and Conservatives Are “Domestic Enemies”

TEA-PARTY-Cohen

The MarxoFascists in government are making it no secret about their intentions.  Genocides begin this way.  

As I have been warning for years – history teaches that every single time a government and it’s ruling class – demonizes a segment of their population, they ALWAYS end up criminalizing them, then in the name of state security and tranquility, ERADICATE them.  Stalin did this.  Hitler did this.  Mao did this.  Pol Pot did this. Ceaușescu did this.  Every single Marxist/Socialist dictator and regime that came into power did this to those people whom opposed their rule, or whom were feared would oppose them.

Obama and his regime of MarxoFascists are about to do this – and indeed are already engaged in it.   Obama’s use of the IRS to harass and intimidate Conservative groups is an initiator of the kind of institutional criminalization that despotic regimes employ against their political opponents.  In fact Obama HIMSELF named the targets that the IRS was to attack.

But that is just one small example of dictatorial power being used to silence any and all opposition.  Such programs are initiators to be quickly transformed into actual crimes against the state.  The MarxoFascist cabal is already pushing that meme into the public conscience with rabid calls for Eric Holder and Obama to ‘do something’ about the Tea Party, while Brownshirts for the regime are engaged in more direct intimidation tactics:

Leftists Demand Ted Cruz Be Charged With Sedition

Death Threats Made Against Ted Cruz and His Family

Of course the GOP Judenrat Ruling Class leadership are seig-heiling the same suggestions in their own ways – because the Conservative Tea Party threatens the tyranny of power that now exists in Washington.  Indeed all of D.C. and the media are hyping up the meme that Conservatives should be seen as domestic enemies and ‘terrorists’.

MarxoFascist (Democrat) Representative lunatic Steve Cohen from Tennessee went public with his less-than-subtle charge that Conservatives who oppose Obama and tyranny are  “domestic enemies”.

“We [meaning U.S. Representatives] take an oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic, and these [Tea Party Republicans] are the domestic enemies.”

Do not wave off such statements as simple rantings of an unhinged ideologue. This political stooge is well known for spewing talking points from the White House.

The ‘discussion’ taking place in the Beltway Praetorian Propaganda Media about those who disagree with Obama and dare defy his consolidation into dictatorship,  is being portrayed as sedition and insurrection against government.  Indeed among the talking heads on media, it is now a meme that is growing in intensity and insistence since the government shutdown ended last week when the GOP Ruling Class agreed to raise Obama’s credit limit to unlimited heights on our dime, at his own discretion.

Cohen is the same Marxofascist demagogue who compared Obama to Jesus and Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate:

It’s interesting to see and hear such comparisons.  I’ve read similar such things said by sycophantic  worshippers of dictatorial rulers in the past who made messianic comparisons.

Things like this:  “Germany has been transformed into a great house of the Lord where the Fuhrer as our mediator stands before the throne of God.”

Goebbels

How long do you think it will be before some MarxoFascist like Cohen makes a similar statement of sorts about Obama and his regime?  Did not “The One” tell us that we were “the ones we have been waiting for” and that he was about to “fundamentally transform” the country?

History teaches that false messiah’s always end up motivating their devotional masses into doing unthinkable horrors, indeed even manipulating them to call for the horrors to be instituted themselves.

We are at that same precipice.

In all of this, I have learned the answer to a major question that has bothered me since I was a kid.  The question was “How?”

SeigHeilTyranny

How could a ‘civilized people’ have allowed themselves to blindly follow a genocidal madman that convinced them to applaud and support the eradication of those whom Hitler decreed were ‘domestic enemies’?

Well, now we know.  And we know exactly where all of this leads.  We’re watching it happen right in front of our eyes.

Twisting Jesus Into A Socialist – The Leftist Perversion of Christianity

Jesus-Socialist

Beware, for the MarxoFascist Liberal-Left is convincing the Lukewarm in the faith that being a good Christian, means being a good Socialist.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves – Matthew 7:15

There is a blending of politics and Christianity that is being done for the specific purpose of REMAKING America.  To turn us from a Representative Republic with a Christian heritage – into a pure Secular Socialist Democracy which will lead ultimately to despotism.   The effort is to replace America’s Christian foundations with NeoLeft Secularist ideals of a Socialist utopia.  To do that – they have successfully helped to steer Americans away from traditional Christianity, to embrace an idea of religion totally alien to our nation’s foundations and principles.  Communist and Socialist regimes always replace religion with the worship of the state.  Ultimately they seek a society where the Elites will regulate everything including commerce, property, wealth, speech, welfare and even how you think and believe.  The once blasphemous idea that Socialism is good for America, is gaining ground because it is being preached daily from the news and entertainment media, and from political panderers that morality means big government Socialism – and more directly from some pulpits – that Jesus taught and expects His followers to practice Socialism.

These are the people who are busy rewriting our history to better match their self-loathing anti-American worldview.  These are the ideologues who want God and religious exercise removed, banned and stripped from the public and private square.  These are the people who demand homosexual marriage, indoctrinate our youth with dumbed-down self-esteem garbage and pushing aberrant sex practices and lifestyles on elementary school kids.  These are the ideologues who demand government handouts for selected groups of government dependents, and think big government Socialism is the reason the government exists.  These are the ideologues who do not trust you or I with speech, guns, private property, wealth or liberty to live our lives.  They may all come from separate left-wing groups – but they are all of the Leftist/Socialist mindset and nearly all of them actively campaign for the remaking of America into their image, because they see America and Americans as evil.  They think it is their moral duty to fix the evil that this nation’s existence has wrought upon the globe – because for many of them who claim the mantle of Christianity, they believe all of that rotgut is what Jesus preached and stood for.

They preach Jesus was a Socialist, and they now equate that being a good Christian DEMANDS you be a good Socialist.  The religious and secular Left in America are transforming government to replace the church in ministering to the poor and needy.  Eventually, as all Marxist/Socialist regimes do – they will replace Jesus with the state, and demand government be worshipped.  For Socialist/Marxist despots will suffer no allegiance to any other but themselves and their systems.

 Michael Youssef has two essays on this subject worth the time to read.

Keep Jesus Out of Your Socialism

The headline of the full-page ad asks, “What Would Jesus Cut?—A budget is a moral document.” The text continues, “Our faith tells us that the moral test of a society is how it treats the poor.”

The ad was produced by Sojourners, a self-described “evangelical” organization whose slogan is “Faith in Action for Social Justice.” The ad was signed by Sojourners president Jim Wallis and more than two dozen Religious Left pastors, theologians, and activists. They urge our legislators to ask themselves, “What would Jesus cut?” from the federal budget.

How would you answer that question? My answer would be, “It’s a nonsense question. Your premise is faulty. Your priorities are not His priorities.”

Jesus had many opportunities to confront the Roman government about its spending priorities. It was, after all, one of the most brutal regimes in history. If the question “What would Jesus cut?” has any biblical relevance, we should be able to cite instances where Jesus lectured the Roman oppressors the same way the Religious Left lectures America.

Just compare ancient Rome with America today. Rome sent its armies out to conquer; America sends its soldiers out to liberate. Rome demanded tribute from other nations; America sends aid and emergency relief around the world. Rome enslaved nations; America rebuilds nations.

If the federal budget is a “moral document,” what does it say about America? It suggests to me that America may be the most moral nation on earth! Name one other country that has spent $15 billion fighting AIDS in Africa. Name one other country that has provided more disaster relief, that has built more schools and water treatment plants, that has supplied more food aid around the world, that has sent more doctors, teachers, and technical advisers to developing nations.

Even America’s military budget—much of which is being spent to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan—reflects the basic compassion and unselfishness of the American people. Clearly, America hardly deserves any scolding from the Sojourners soapbox.

Did Jesus ever lecture the Roman Empire about its budget priorities? In Matthew 8, when the Roman centurion approached Jesus in Capernaum, our Lord could have said, “How dare you, a Roman warmonger, come to Me asking favors? Change your priorities! Tell your bosses in Rome to stop buying chariots and start funding welfare programs!” But Jesus didn’t lecture the centurion. He said, “I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith!”

In Matthew 22, when the Pharisees asked if it was right to pay taxes to Caesar, the Lord could have thundered against Caesar’s misplaced budget priorities. Instead, He said, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”

In John 18, Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect, a friend of Caesar. Why didn’t He give Pilate an earful about the injustice of Roman rule? If ever there was a time for Jesus to “speak truth to power” and become the “social justice Messiah,” that was it!

But Jesus didn’t preach the social gospel to Pontius Pilate. Oh, he spoke truth to power, all right. He delivered a profound message to Pontius Pilate—and to you and me: “My kingdom is not of this world.”

Now, I’m not saying that Christians are never called to confront their government. God bless Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Confessing Church for standing against Nazi genocide. But that’s not the situation here.

And I’m not saying there isn’t a social and compassionate dimension to the Christian gospel. There certainly is! Jesus had great compassion for the poor.

He preached in Nazareth, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.” He sent word to John the Baptist, “The deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.” Jesus presented the obligation to help the poor as an individual responsibility, a Kingdom responsibility—not the duty of the secular government.

Both the religious and secular Left in America seem to want government to replace the church in ministering to the poor and needy. One of Barack Obama’s first proposals as president was a plan to slash tax deductions for charitable donations by high-income taxpayers. President Obama reasoned that a tax deduction “shouldn’t be a determining factor as to whether you’re giving that hundred dollars to the homeless shelter.” Maybe so—but since private charities do so much good for the poor, why eliminate incentives for charitable giving? Could it be that liberals see private charities as competing with the big government welfare state?

In Romans 13, Paul tells us that we pay our taxes and support the government so that we will have a just, orderly society in which law-abiding citizens are protected from wrongdoers. But the responsibility for mercy and compassion belongs to the church—not the government.

What would Jesus cut? When He stood before the Roman Empire, He didn’t suggest cuts. He received cuts. His flesh was cut by Roman nails and a Roman spear. He was bruised for our transgressions, and with His cuts we are healed. That’s the gospel of Jesus Christ.

PART 2

…ministering to the poor and the needy among us is the work of Christian individuals and the church, not the secular government. Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. . . .” Today’s Religious Left wants to change that to, “He has anointed the federal government to preach good news to the poor.”

The Christian gospel is a message of salvation, not a message of income redistribution and raising our neighbor’s taxes. Jesus said that the way to serve the poor is by giving generously of our own resources. “But when you give a banquet,” He said in Luke 14, “invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

The Religious Left is very generous—with other people’s money. In fact, I believe the founder of the Religious Left was none other than Judas Iscariot. When Mary, the sister of Lazarus, anointed Jesus with costly perfume just days before the crucifixion, Judas lectured her and said, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor?”

Notice that Judas put on a show of caring for the poor—even though the money was Mary’s, not his! The motives of Judas, John 12:6 tells us, were corrupt and self-centered—and Jesus responded with a stinging rebuke.

At least one of the Lord’s disciples was a “social action Christian” in the Sojourners mold: Simon Zelotes (Simon the Zealot). Just as Sojourners president Jim Wallis was once president of the Michigan State chapter of the militant Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Simon Zelotes was a young political radical who attached himself to Jesus because he thought Jesus would lead a revolt against the Roman Empire.

Simon saw Jesus as a political Messiah who would topple the powerful while lifting up the poor and oppressed. But Jesus was not a political Messiah. He didn’t attack the Roman Empire. He did battle with the Evil Empire of Satan himself.

Jesus didn’t tell the Roman government what its budget priorities should be. Why? Because His agenda was much larger than the agenda of Simon Zelotes or the Religious Left. His eyes were fixed on eternity. He said, “My kingdom is not of this world.”

The Religious Left has missed the meaning of that statement. Yes, there is a place for Christian social action—but that place is in a personal lifestyle of generosity and compassion to the poor. Jesus didn’t tell the rich young ruler to become a political activist and affect public policy. He said, “Go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

It’s true, there’s poverty in America, and some of the poor can’t lift themselves out of poverty without help. Some are physically or socially disadvantaged. Some are down on their luck. They need and deserve Christian compassion and the good news of the gospel.

But a huge number of people receiving government assistance are substance abusers, welfare cheats, or chronically lazy. Doesn’t the Bible tell us, “If a man will not work, he shall not eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10)? Why must the “makers” of society support the “takers” of society? That’s not compassion. That’s theft. Wouldn’t it be more compassionate to encourage the takers to develop self-respect by becoming productive citizens?

Would Jesus endorse government policies that encourage and enable addiction, indolence, and welfare fraud? Certainly not. The Religious Left should read His parables, especially the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30), the Parable of the Vineyards (Matthew 20:1-16), and the Parable of the Tenants (Matthew 21:33-46). In those parables, Jesus blesses hard work, personal responsibility and the freedom to achieve.

Government programs can’t separate the truly needy from the welfare cheats—but private Christian charities can. Private charities are far more effective than government at meeting needs, changing lives, eliminating fraud and waste, and dispensing compassion. Our stance as Christians should be pro-compassion, not pro-bureaucracy.

The place for compassionate Christian social action is in the church, and in the lives of individual believers. When the church becomes a political pressure group, telling the government, “Confiscate more wealth from those who earned it and give it to those who have not,” then the church has formed an unholy union with the kingdoms of this world.

Income redistribution is not Christianity. It’s Marxism—and mixing the two only pollutes the Gospel and betrays the Great Commission.
