In "Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right," Tucker Carlson asks his readers, "when was the last time you stopped yourself from saying something you believed to be true for fear of being punished or criticized for saying it?" If you live in America, it probably hasn’t been long:
"That’s not just a talking point about political correctness. It’s the central problem with our national conversation, the main reason our debates are so stilted and useless. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t have the words to describe it. You can’t even think about it clearly." ("Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right,“ politico.com)
After more than fifty years of having it pounded into our heads by those who love darkness, lies and evil that unchanging truth and evil do not exist, the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos leave many if not most Americans without the right words to express their shock and revulsion. Evil however, is an appropriate descriptor.
Planned Parenthood butchers either skillfully crush unborn living babies in order to behead and cannibalize them for their body parts or as we now learn, kill them upon birth for the same barbaric purposes. This is evil rationalized and justified by wicked liars as "scientific research" a "woman's choice" and "family planning." Similarly, much of what passes today for 'free speech' is lies, shameless bragging, ingratitude, hate, vulgarity, contempt, resentment, envy , malice and death-wishing rationalized and justified by morally unfettered barbarians as 'free speech.'
According to Carlson, this depressing state of affairs made Trump’s political career, and, "my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault:"
" In a country where almost everyone in public life lies reflexively, it’s thrilling to hear someone say what he really thinks, even if you believe he’s wrong. It’s especially exciting when you suspect he’s right, " despite that Christians largely know that Trumps' brand of Christianity is "a ludicrous imitation of a faithful Christian, the least holy roller ever."
So why are decent, law-abiding Americans and faithful Christians overwhelmingly supporting a fiery, mouthy, junk-yard dog like Trump? Though there is no one-size-fits-all answer, for many supporters, particularly those who are informed, it is obvious that those who love the dark rather than the Light are parasitic destroyers fast-tracking America into hell, thus in desperation they see in Trump someone who might save our nation from some or all of the following pathologies:
1.Growing secularization (subjectivist paganism) proceeding hand in hand with the ‘evolutionising’ of the culture
2. A rise in militant—atheism and a growing intolerance of the Bible’s account of Creation, the two sexes, God ordained marriage, the Fall, the Flood, immutable truth, moral absolutes, Christian holidays, Ten Commandment monuments, cemetery crosses, private property, our right to defend ourselves from the evil intentioned, the founders and even the Constitution
3. Widespread acceptance of sodomy, lesbianism, transgender
4. Culture wide embrace of a man-centered morality (subjectivism/political correctness) that is in opposition to Christianity and rationalizes the persecution, imprisonment, and impoverishment of Christians
5. With the disappearance of Biblical ethics like the sanctity of human life we witness the ongoing consequences relating to the dehumanization of humans and subsequent cheapening of human life in abortion, the sexualization and perversion of children, embryonic stem cell research and various forms of euthanasia.
All of this unfolding evil leads some evangelicals such as Phyllis Schlafly and mega-church pastor Robert Jeffress to endorse Trump because they believe he is Americas' last best hope. Others see in him a modern Cyrus, raised up by God to restore our nation. In summation, Carlson believes they’re looking for,
"a bodyguard, someone to shield them from mounting (and real) threats to their freedom of speech and worship. Trump fits that role nicely, better in fact than many church-going Republicans. For eight years, there was a born-again in the White House. How’d that work out for Christians, here and in Iraq?"
Though Obama claims to be Christian, his liberal (apostate) brand does not qualify as the real thing. Moreover, liberal 'Christianity' and other such man-and-world centered permutations are symptoms of the much larger apostasy and spiritual disease afflicting and killing our society, and by extension, why America increasingly resembles the spiritual vacuum that is the now-dead Christendom. Similar to that dead zone, America is a roiling sea of darkness dotted here and there by very small islands of Light. No man--no not Trump either--- can make great an apostatizing, spiritually diseased and dying society in which a majority of its citizens are slaves to appetites. Without a Ninevah-style repentance and turning back to the Lord, it seems more likely that Trump will prove to be another tin-pot dictator rather than a Cyrus. Only time will tell.
