What's Wrong With the Far Left?

For some time now, I have been thinking about what the true motives of the radical liberal left ideology really is all about. It's time to speak out on what is really wrong with the far left and their dangerous ideology. Caution! You are about to enter another BIGOT post zone. (Don't claim that I didn't warn you!)

FYI, BIGOT is an acronym that represents:

Bible
Is
God's
Only
Truth

Several books and periodicals that I have completed reading have helped me immensely to see that the radical liberal left agenda covers so many areas that as a born-again evangelical Christian, I am called by the God of the Bible to personally reject and speak out against. In the past, some issues on the side of the radical left have not been as clear for me. However, it has been brought to my attention recently that just as I have suspected all along, there is one component that they all seem to have in common. More on that later. Meanwhile, here is a partial list of some of the issues that are 180 degrees opposite mine:

1. The far left wants to keep unfettered access to abortion legal. They don't want women who are considering abortion to see the new 4-D ultrasounds that show the growing child in the uterus. Why?

2. The far left wants homosexuality declared as normal, natural, and completely acceptable. They want anyone who disagrees with that punished through "hate crimes" legislation that would elevate a group of people based on sexual orientation to a degree over and above any other group. The real motive here is freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of association control. It doesn't matter if a person's faith (and the Bible) tells them that homosexual behavior is sin and an abomination to God, they just want you to no longer have the opportunity or right to publicly say so anymore! Why?

3. Darwinism is their "god" and any scientist who disagrees with the macro-evolution portion of the theory is not only automatically labeled as "not scientific," but also scorned and ridiculed. It makes one wonder just what they are so afraid of? Can't Darwinism hold up to the scrutiny of those who disagree? Apparently, rather than risk the exposure of this debunked part of the theory, they wish to silence all opposition in scientific journals, public schools, and secular universities. Why won't they allow students to question this hierarchy?

4. The far left's hysteria over global warming is but another example of the desire to squelch any opposition to such their own beliefs. Even qualified scientists who do not agree that all that was stated in Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" documentary is plausible are to be vilified, marginalized and silenced. Why?

5. The far left's " set in stone" ideology and rabid negativity about the war against terrorism in Iraq causes them to refuse to see the big picture of why we are fighting there. They ignore the good that we are doing over there and the leftist news media only accentuates the bad. They refuse to see and/or recognize the similarities and parallels between the danger of Nazism in the historical past and the current world-wide threat and obsession of Radical Islamo-fascism. Why?

6. The far left take liberty and change it into licientiousness; allowing such horrible atrocities against children to occur in this nation simply because they (and lunatic liberal left judges) view pedophiles as people who "need to be helped" rather than locked away for life. Perhaps Judith Reisman has the answer as to where such a disgusting and lurid licientiousness hailed from. Those of the licientious mindset appear to refuse to recognize that pornography fuels physical and sexual abuse upon women and children. Yet they demand access to it in public libraries. They appear to want to ignore the huge problem of online sexual predators in this nation that has reached epidemic proportions (due to Kinsey's insanity under the guise of "scientific research" with the added scourge of easy access to internet porn). They appear to not care a thing about the sex trade industry that is destroying our young people and taking away the innocence of children. Why?

7. The far left want open borders and illegal alien amnesty in this country. Just the term "illegal alien" being used by T.V. news analysts like Bill O'Reilly invites scorn and invective accusations of racism. Why? What is it about the term "illegal" that they just don't understand?

8. Speaking of racism, dinosaur African-American "leaders" of the black community continue to keep the anger, hate, and oftentimes false accusations of racism against white people alive and festering; rather than taking the approach of reconciliation between the races. Why? What's more, have any of those leaders (i.e. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton) taken the time to apologize to the Duke lacrosse team players who were falsely accused of raping an African American woman who chooses to strip for a living?? Why not? What's more, the African American leaders who have been elevated to high-ranking positions within the Bush Administration (i.e. Condi Rice; former Education Secretary Rod Paige; and former Secretary of State Colin Powell) have been constantly disparaged and vilified by the left and the media in this country just because they are conservatives. Why? Even worse, the African-American head of the "Black Panthers" gets away with calling Michele Malkin (while substituting for Bill O'Reilly on the O'Reilly Factor) a "political prostitute."

I ask you. Could you imagine the outrage if a white man said something as nasty as that to Oprah Winfrey on national television? Oh wait...we did have something similar happen. The "nappy headed ho's" comment by Imus.

So what's the difference?

The outrage and calls to fire Imus erupted on a scale larger than the Grand Canyon!

Malik Shabazz's bigoted rant against a petite, beautiful, conservative, Filipino young woman attempting to interview him? Just a blip on the radar screen. He certainly bashed her big time. But it was soon forgotten. What a coward! We all know that he would never have the courage to say such a thing to O'Reilly's face. Malik...you are a bully!

No news broadcasts filled with pictures and outraged pundits calling for his resignation from his position.

No calls for apology from Shabazz...oh no, of course not!

Just a blog post about the encounter on Hot Air and an apology from Bill O'Reilly to Michele because he felt that Michele did not deserve to be attacked in such an outrageous and disgusting way by that vile excuse for a man.

But I have even more questions.

Why the outrage and media firestorm against one person (Imus) who spewed a racial epithet and apologized profusely, yet media silence about what Shabazz spewed against a conservative Fox News contributer and well-known blogger? What is wrong with this picture? Can you recognize it yet?

There are probably tons of additional examples that I could give here, but I think that these few will suffice for me to share my point.

My morning started out by reading an article about Joseph Farah's new book called, Stop the Presses. In that article, it occurred to me that the powerful gay activism in the media today is just one of the reasons why hatred is often spewed Farah's way. In a former article, Farah exposed how Pressure groups are shaping press coverage and that one only needs to trace the dots on the obvious bias machine to see how the U.S. newsrooms have been infiltrated.

Farah wrote:






Another example of an extremist pressure group controlling press coverage, according to Farah, is the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association.

"Not only is the organization successful at working inside the media to ensure favorable coverage of homosexuals and their political agenda, it even persuades the corporate press barons to pay their freight," exclaims Farah.

Like the Society of Environmental Journalists, the NLGJA is well-funded, with support coming from the Hearst Corp., Chicago Tribune, National Public Radio, Bloomberg, Knight-Ridder, the New York Times, Newsweek, NBC News, Time, ABC, CBS News, CNN, Fox News Network, Washington Post, Newsweek, Newsday, the Ford Foundation, General Motors, Allstate, jetBlue, Toyota, Coca-Cola, Verizon and HBO.

Also, like speakers at the SEJ conference, some members of the NLGJA have suggested "getting the other side" on issues involving homosexuality is not necessary and probably not a good idea.

"At the group's 2000 national conference in San Francisco, the big debate was over whether journalists should even bother getting other points of view on homosexuals' issues and stories – whether such viewpoints should even be permitted," says Farah.

CBS correspondent and NLJGA member Jeffrey Kofman made the point: "The argument (is): Why do we constantly see in coverage of gay and lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues the homophobes and the fag-haters quoted in stories when, of course, we don't do that with Jews, blacks, et cetera?"

Paula Madison, vice president of diversity at NBC and news director for the NBC's New York City affiliate WNBC, added: "I agree with him. I don't see why we would seek out ... the absurd, inane point of view just to get another point of view."

Kofman rejoined: "All of us have seen and continue to see a lot of coverage that includes perspectives on gay issues that include people who just simply are intolerant and perhaps not qualified as well."

Farah says this kind of observation is exactly why activists should be prohibited from the newsroom – not in control of it.

"I wrote 'Stop the Presses!' as a unique effort to explain the institutional problems we see in the establishment press today from the perspective of an insider – someone who witnessed this takeover of America's newsrooms," says Farah. "But I also witnessed and participated in the antidote – the New Media, with all of its increased competition and the many fresh voices it welcomes to the national debate."

Many others have addressed issues of media bias before, says Farah. But few other insiders have blown the whistle on the problem. And no one else has exposed the tactics of pressure groups within the press.

Farah says the activists within the media, whether they realize it or not, are mapping a route to their own self-destruction and disfranchisement through the increasingly intolerant and close-minded way they practice their profession.


If you clicked on the links above, you will no doubt have noticed that the first article started with a blurb about the global warming frenzy. Now, at first glance, these two may not appear to be related in any way (except for the media bias against dissenting voices, of course). But, it wasn't until I read an article written by David Kupelian in World Net Daily's Whistleblower magazine entitled, "Hysteria: Exposing the secret agenda behind today's obsession with global warming" that I made the connection between what the Bible says about godless people and the type of world that the far left envisions for mankind.

Kupelian wrote:





Global problems, whether real or conjured up, seem to require global governmental solutions. Today, "environmentalism" is nothing less than the global elitists' replacement ideology for communism/socialism. With communism largely discredited today – after all, 100-150 million people died at the hands of communist "visionaries" during the last century – leftist elitists who desire to rule other people's lives have gravitated to an even more powerful ideology. More powerful because it seems to trump all other considerations, as it claims the very survival of life on earth is dependent on implementing its agenda.

[W]hat we're witnessing right now is a rigid global-warming orthodoxy permeating the would-be ruling class. Scientists and climatologists who dare question the unquestionable are openly ridiculed, censored and threatened with decertification and professional disgrace. Meanwhile, the movement toward global governance, complete with global taxation, massive international wealth transfers and the crippling of Western industrialized society, moves inexorable into the fast lane.

"Kyoto," insists French President Jacques Chirac, "represents the first component of an authentic global governance." You see, they don't even hide it - they think global governance is a wonderful thing.

[Note from Christine: Wow! Can you see how this would play into the hands of the anti-Christ prophecied in Scripture? Global governance and dominance; brought on by a "miracle" worker who is perceived to be good for the world, yet in the final years of the tribulation his evil intent shows up and turns against the very people who once "worshipped" him as some sort of "messiah."]

Kupelian continues:





Make no mistake. On the surface, people like Al Gore say they want environmentalism to be the central organizing principle of life on earth (Gore admits precisely that in his book, "Earth in the Balance"). But look deeper, and you'll see that pious concern for the environment masks an elitist, greedy, controlling, anti-democratic, anti-Western, anti-capitalist, anti-free-enterprise, anti-free-will philosophy, carefully honed as a weapon for tranforming civilation.

And just who are these people who want to control and change our lives? When all is said and done, they are just supremely egotistical but ultimately clueless human beings who, devoid of God's light in them, lust after power over others as a dismal substitute for having a real life.

By the way, have you ever noticed that these people don't seem to be concerned about real dangers, like the global Islamic jihad movement that is negatively transforming Europe and Britain right now, and which has targeted the U.S. for massive attack and Israel for total annihilation? No, environmentalist-globalist elitist types - being darkly motivated themselves - have no ability to deal with real evil, nor even any motivation to do so. Rather, their fulfillment comes from confusing and upsetting good people into following them, for the sake of ego and power.

And that's the bottom-line principle here: Sociopaths know that if they can confuse, upset and frighten the masses, they can control them.

So don't be confused, don't be upset, don't be frightened - and most of all, don't believe these wackos.


Maybe you don't think they should be called "wackos." But I must agree that they do lack common sense and truth.

Arrogant of me to say that? Maybe. But I will share why I have reached such a conclusion.

Most people who hold a far left mentality fall into one of the following categories: atheists, agnostics, skeptics, false religion advocates or even cult religion (Scientology comes to mind) members. What do they all have in common? The rejection of God's Word, the Bible; non-belief in the Christian faith in general; as well as non-belief (and, more likely hatred) for the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, in particular. You will most likely never find a born-again, evangelical, Bible-believing Christian in the midst of the far left crowd.

Why?

Because they see the Gospel as foolishness.

The Bible is filled with verses telling us that 'the cross of Christ is foolishness to those who are perishing.' The cross of Christ is offensive to non-believers. Why? Because the Gospel reveals how man ignored God's warning to avoid evil. A fallen angel turned evil then tempted man to sin. Man chose to sin, thus separating himself from Holy God. This means that one day every man must be judged for the sin upon his own soul. The far left does not want any judgment to interfere with their actions or pleasures in life. Confession, repentance, recognizing that Jesus died on the cross for their sins and is the only way to be reconciled with God does not appeal to them. Their pride will not allow them to see that their lives have been negatively affected (and infected) with ego, lust, power, and marketing (plus participation with) of evil. Their rejection of the God of the Bible completes their fate.

When David Kupelian's book, "The Marketing of Evil" came out, the first radical group to protest were the homosexual activists.

Why?

They don't want anyone to be allowed to pass any judgment upon their behavior. They didn't want their marketing techniques (even when they knew they were lying to the public) using "tolerance" as a guise for total acceptance...or else...exposed.

So, what is the result of 30 years of "tolerance" without the truth? What exactly is happening today?

I'll tell you. It is no longer enough for people to tolerate who they want to be and what aberrant behaviors they wish to engage in. Now, they demand that we all must be in lock-step with their militant agenda, or we will be locked up in jail through hate crime legislation brilliantly marketed by the thought police activists.

I know, it sounds like I'm exaggerating. I wish I was...but I'm not!

The loss of Religious freedom on this issue would be the first to suffer amongst an entire host of terrible things that would result if such legislation were to pass. Just click on that link and see what has happened to religious leaders and preachers in other nations where the former freedom of speech ability to share what the Bible tells us about homosexuality being sin and an abomination to God is no longer legal.

You see, there is much more at stake than originally meets the eye.

Christine, I must also ask "What's wrong with the far right?!" Shirley Phelps, Fred's daughter, has been all over the tv stating that she and her ilk will be protesting at every funeral held for the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings. She said that the shooter was a messenger of God, and that he was only doing God's will to strike down these people. She said God had them slain because they weren't pure Christians, that they deserved to be slaughtered, because they obviously lived in sin.

How can any human being of ANY religion believe something so absolutely insane?

But, as usual, it's the whack jobs who get the most air time. She and others like her make the rest of us look nuts. Is it any wonder that Christianity is under fire when it's people like the Phelps who seem to get to speak for the rest of us?

Bill O'Reilly has established himself as one of the nation's top media personalities. O'Reilly’s influence and power derive from being able to throw a double punch — the most-watched cable TV host and a widely syndicated radio host. His twist: He covers world events from a working-class populist perspective. Every week he finds occasions to agree with something a prominent Democratic politician has said, although O’Reilly has also remarked that “the Democratic Party has been hijacked by the far left.” NewsMax Top 25 Radio Hosts rates Bill O’Reilly as America’s second most influential in America.

Christinewjc said...

You're right, Jaded...I mean correct! The wackos on the far right need to be exposed for who and what they are, too.

I did address the controversy about Shirley and Fred Phelps, (and their ilk) in a post a while back. For some reason, my links to former blogposts are not working correctly, so I have posted that portion below. I remember that I was so angry that they were picketing at our fallen soldiers funerals!! Now, I am so very grieved and angry, once again, to hear that they plan to protest at the funerals for the VA Tech victims.

I think that the only places that we are likely to confront far right groups and get the sane, true Biblical Christian message across that exposes crazies like the Westboro cult would be on conservative radio, the Fox News Channel and/or maybe even Glenn Beck's show on CNN Headline News.

I plan to expand a bit on the error(s) of far right groups like the Phelps clan in a later post. For now, suffice it to say that they do not recognize the tenets of true Christian faith which emphasize the ability for anyone to confess and repent of their wrongdoing, be spiritually reborn, forgiven through the cross of Christ and welcomed into the family of God.

Here's the portion of a former post about Shirley Phelps:

A few nights ago, I witnessed a verbal exchange between Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, and a member of the Westboro "Baptist" church (Fred Phelps fame). What a riveting segment. That group is a cult that has, unfortunately, been used to discredit true Christian ministries that seek to help people who are unhappy and struggling with same-sex attraction find freedom in Jesus Christ.

This group goes even further down to the pit of Satan. They were picketing at funerals, demonstrating against, and demeaning our brave military heroes who had given their lives in the effort to defeat terrorism and keep our country safe from any additional attacks since the tragedy of 9/11.

This is profoundly ugly. It's totally disgraceful and utterly unChristian to do such a thing. Yet, these people think that they are the "genuine" Christians and all the rest of us are "abominations."

The Bible does not call people abominations. It calls certain acts of sin abominations.

I would like to state one important observation about the Phelps cult member that appeared on Hannity and Colmes. She never once mentioned the power and saving grace that any sinner can be given through repentance and belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!

That one fact is what unites Christ's true, universal church (believers, not a denomination or building) despite differing "human traditions" added to individual denominations! This is the crux of the matter. If a church does not teach, "Jesus Christ and him crucified" as the way of salvation, then it is not following what God requires for reconciliation between God and man.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (NKJV)
Christ Crucified
2And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the *testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of *human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

I feel bad for that group of 100 people who are under the deception of Satan through Fred Phelps skewed ideology. But this is what happens when people follow a finite man's lead rather than the eternal Son of God, Jesus Christ and His revealed Word, the Bible.

1 Corinthians 2:6 (NKJV)

Spiritual Wisdom
6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. (bold mine)

1 Corinthians 2:7-16

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written:
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."*
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the *Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For "who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?"* But we have the mind of Christ.
Footnotes:
2:1
NU-Text reads mystery.
2:4
NU-Text omits human.
2:9
Isaiah 64:4
2:13
NU-Text omits Holy.
2:16
Isaiah 40:13

Ultimately the difference between far right groups like the Phelps and what true faith in Jesus Christ teaches us is:

Christians believe that sin is "filth" in the eyes of God, but the person is precious and valuable. Sin needs to be repented of and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is what saves a person's soul.

MUD said...

The real problem in our society is that over 50% of the people don't give a dam and don't vote and our political parties are hijacked by either the far right or the far left.I hate abortion but I sure as hell don't think it is Government's job to invade a decision that needs to be made between a woman, her doctor and her god. A whole bunch of people think it is freedom from Religion not freedom of religion. If a bunch of us want to celebrate Easter, why do a few "nut jobs" have the right to stop my easter egg roll? As a resident of Topeka, KS don't get me started on Fred Phelps and his nut job group that picket. At least if he takes his show on the road to Virginia he won't be on the streets here for a while.

Hi Shelbspeaks,

Welcome to Talkwisdom! Even though I don't always agree with all of his opinions and assertions, I do agree that O'Reilly is a very influential media personality. I have read three of his books, but really liked his latest book, "Culture Warrior" the best. He exposed the dangerous agenda of "secular progressives" like George Soros. It truly was eye opening.

FYI, for some reason, the link you provided doesn't work.

I have been having some problems with posting links to my previous blogposts today. Anyone else experiencing that?

Christinewjc said...

Hi Mud,

Welcome to my Talkwisdom blog! It's sad to say that you are probably right. Too many people don't come out and vote so we end up with a Dem majority in Congress and a liberal left SF feminist as Speaker of the House! I KNEW SHE WOULD BE TROUBLE! And Harry Reid is the biggest pain in the a**!! What he said today made me so angry!!

Oh gosh...you live near the Phelps lunatic cult? I'm so sorry to hear that!

Someone should come up with signs to counter their drivel. Maybe..."Phelps desperately needs Jesus' help!" or "Phelps insanity is not true Christianity!"

Those are really lame...I know. Someone help me find better slogans!!

I guess we can take comfort in the fact that boy, are they all going to be in for a shock when they come face to face with the Lord's judgment upon them one day!

Jaded said...

I don't really take much comfort in the fact that they'll be sorry in the end. I actually worry more about the damage they're doing while they're here. How many people did they drive away from God as a result of their lunacy? There are those who believe that Phelps is what Christianity is all about...people like him, and those who bomb abortion clinics and assassinate doctors who perform abortions...those who attack homosexuals and protest at funerals. What I think we need to do is to find a way to promote true Christianity and to get that message out to people the way these heretics do. They get all the press because it makes for sensational television. There has to be a way to say "Enough is enough! This is NOT who we are and we will not allow these freaks to speak for us!"

I also think it's important for more people to get out and vote. We are a nation of many cultures and religions. I don't believe that religion should dictate public policy. When we do that, we become a theocracy, not a democracy...and pretty much every theocracy in history has been rife with violence, bloodshed and power struggles, regardless of the religion. Faith is only faith when it's not forced upon us.

Christinewjc said...

Jaded,

I don't think that most people equate the Phelps cult with true Christianity. Only those who would want to place a negative label upon Christians, as a whole, would do that.

I also think that we have some great representatives of the Christian faith who occasionally get the chance to appear on T.V. news analyst shows (i.e. Billy Graham [in the past when he was well], Max Lucado, Franklin Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, Greg Koukl (he's a great Christian apologist who debated Deepak Chopra and did an awesome job), Tim LaHaye.} And, there are several T.V. preachers who I think do an excellent job of being true to the Gospel and have great Biblical knowledge, such as Dr. David Jeremiah (Turning Point Ministries), and John Hagee (great on Biblical Prophecy and the topics of Israel and Radical Islam).

But if a person isn't looking to see these shows and hear what they have to say, then they wouldn't know about them or the great Christian, Biblical information they have to share.

Despite the fact that there are Christian "leaders" out there that are disliked and/or don't always say the best "politically correct" things, the Gospel can still get through to people via their messages.

I dislike the charletans (Benny Hinn comes to mind) who are out for the money rather than sharing the Gospel. But who knows? God can use anyone and anything to reach the lost...despite their errors.

The best way to recognize such errors is to be a constant student of God's Word. That way, when something is said that isn't biblical, one can discern it immediately! Several good verses on this subject are:

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
