Betrayed: Why Conservatives Have Become a Slow Echo of the Left
If you do any research at all, or carefully read or view that is put forth as conservative these days, you know there is something wrong going on, even if you can’t put your finger on it.
A major part of what’s wrong is organizations and media outlets that position themselves as serving the conservative market, have been infiltrated and/or caved into the progressive, SJW narrative because of fear, confusion, being worn down, or wanting to be included in the public discourse, even if they have to wildly compromise their beliefs and worldview to do so.
Here’s what conservatives and others on the right need to understand: to not fight back is to cede ground to our enemies … and they are our enemies.
To cede ground doesn’t only mean the liberals and SJWs are getting their way, it’s far more insidious than that. What it means is when the right refused to fight, it not only loses ground to our enemies, but it moves the overall position of the right in numerous areas to the left. This is why you see many former or so-called conservative media outlets sounding more and more like the left. The reason for that is because they in fact have been moving left for some time.
Just a cursory glance at public policy on the political side of life reveals the inability and unwillingness of the right to fight and win. Look at homosexual marriage, women fighting in the military, men using women’s bathrooms because they declare themselves women, girls joining into the boy scouts, and numerous other liberal, SJW objectives that are easily won without much more than a whimper from conservatives and the right.
Organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, which hilariously declare themselves bastions of the political right in regard to allegedly “guiding” government policies to a more favorable outcome for the right, has been rapidly degrading, to the point they support the social networks that have been silencing voices on the right.
This horrendous article on National Review also supports my thesis that these organizations are nothing much more than appointed or controlled opposition. The call to surrender by the fake conservative J.J. McCullough is an abomination and needs to be vehemently resisted and exposed.
McCullough is either completely dishonest, or totally self-deceived as to the extent and nature of homosexuality in America. He says this:
Through education, and especially exposure, homosexuality is no longer regarded as bizarre, threatening, or mysterious. Even if we remain unsure about what makes a minority of men and women gay, only the tiniest fringe still consider the orientation something worth trying to “fix.” When states attempt to ban homosexual “conversion therapy,” as California is trying to do at the moment, it feels like anachronistic performance. Disinterest in judging homosexuality is not an attitude government has coerced Americans into, it is the product of a free people’s informed knowledge.
His statement is so full of lies and contradictions. It’s surprising no editor at the former conservative media outlet National Review caught it.
One of the biggest contradictions just in this one paragraph is how he first says, “Through education, and especially exposure, homosexuality is no longer regarded as bizarre, threatening, or mysterious.”
He then goes on to say the opposite at the end of the paragraph, when he draws this conclusion:
Disinterest in judging homosexuality is not an attitude government has coerced Americans into, it is the product of a free people’s informed knowledge.
I hope you caught what he did there. He first stated that through education, i.e. government education, homosexuality is considered, essentially, normal. Then he bizarrely says that Americans haven’t been coerced into accepting homosexual behavior by the government. The truth is Americans, overall, have never supported homosexuality until government schools pressured and brainwashed students into accepting it as normal. Even now it’s dubious as to the level of support, because most people are afraid to admit what they really believe because of potential repercussions.
It gets worse. He then brutally attacks those that continue to oppose the sinning, mentally disturbed individuals that embrace what God calls an abomination: identifying as transgender.
In some quarters, it remains fashionable to act theatrically repulsed by transgender people, emphasize their weirdness, and make populist appeals to the preposterousness of women asking to be called “him” or surgeons amputating penises and so forth. Yet this seems more cathartic than anything, in the same way that showy judgment of gays did a generation earlier. As with homosexuality in the 1980s and ’90s, the loud revulsion of critics conceals a fading interest in actually attempting to “solve” transgenderism, as even those most offended by it seem to quietly regard purported cures as quackish and authoritarian.
Do you see how insidious the writer is? He attempts to discourage those on the right by asserting that almost everyone considers homosexuals as normal, when in fact there are millions that don’t adhere to that lie. At the same time, he then attempts to transition that unproven conclusion to transgenders, saying it’s inevitable conservatives and others on the right will accept it.
What this despicable enemy is doing is calling for conservatives, Christians, and the right in general, to surrender to what he considers the inevitable.
You can go to the included link above to read the article and see the total collapse of National Review as having any semblance of being conservative.
As for God’s point of view, here’s what the Bible says about transgenders in Deuteronomy 22:5:
“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”
What I’m saying is this is the norm for the fake right, and why so many are getting discouraged, simply want to be left alone, and are confused about what is right or wrong with many issues. That’s why I included the scripture above. It’s no ambiguous or uncertain. God considers the transgender lifestyle as an abomination. Period.
This not only refers to dressing up like a man or woman by the opposite gender, but also taking on the characteristics of a man if you’re a woman, or a woman if you’re a man. Males and females in their unique characteristics are what make up the image of God, and this attempt at confusing the issue is a very attack upon the image of God as He created the human race to be in regard to the two genders.
The point here isn’t the issue of transgenders specifically, but the abandonment of the right to leftist thought and ideology, which for decades has brought the former conservative movement to be nothing more than a delayed echo of the left.
When you see the Heritage Foundation and National Review rapidly becoming converged and increasingly representative of the left and SJWs, it’s easy to see why there is nothing to embrace with the former conservative movement, and why a new, harder right is emerging; one that is taking real Christianity serious again, isn’t afraid to fight, and has nothing less than the goal of winning the war for civilization.
As for the fake right, when it goes on life support, do not resuscitate!
