(Dec. 26, 2020) — The Christmas season has traditionally been a time for hopefulness. Families gather with hopes of joyful reunion. Christian families celebrate the birth of Christ with food, wine, laughter, gift giving, and religious services. But you don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy Christmas. The Christmas season delights us all with its music, twinkling lights, messages of peace on earth, and the holiday spirit of giving. Businesses reward their employees with company parties and bonuses. Retail shops and government offices close in observance of the holiday. Not this year.
In the movie, The Green Mile, when the bad guy “Wild Bill” Wharton breaks into a house to rape and kill the two young girls, he keeps the girls silent by telling them, “You love your sister? You make any noise, … I’m gonna kill her instead of you.” As the protagonist of the movie John Coffey observed, “He killed them with their love.” The killer used their love against them. Neither girl wanted to be responsible for their sister’s death, so both girls remained silent, and complied. And their silence allowed him to kill them both. That is the way evil works. Evil uses good people’s love against them, to control them, and to even kill them.
Since the start of the pandemic, when people have told us that we must wear masks, they would say, ‘you are not doing it to protect yourself, you are only doing it to protect other people’. I never understood the logic of that. Does the corona-virus only penetrate the blue side of the mask, and not the white side? Couldn’t we just flip our masks over? If the mask protects other people, it only follows that it would also protect the wearer. But we are told wearing the mask only protects the other person because the people who want to control us are using our love against us. They are using our love of our families or our fellow man to force us to comply with their wishes. They know if people were told that the mask protected the wearer, many people would say, ‘I’m not wearing it, I’ll take my chances of getting sick’. And there would be no guilt because other people would be protected by their own masks.
So it is in families today. Adult children are told they are protecting their parents and grandparents, parents are told they are protecting their children and parents. Love for each other is being used against them to end family gatherings, Christmas gatherings, business parties. Family love and loyalty is being manipulated to splinter families. What??
I will repeat, family love and loyalty is being used to splinter families. Consider the parents who reject the fearmongering of political medicine, and who realize its destructive political purpose. These parents are diametrically opposed to the views of their indoctrinated adult children whose source of information is the mainstream media and big-tech social media. The leftist media propaganda is reinforced by the anti-American educational curricula K-12 and university which undermines the nuclear family and supports loyalty to the state.
Parents are offered the choice of conforming to their children’s philosophical demands, or suffering family rupture. It is a childish demand to “Prove that you love me.” The choice is a lose/lose dilemma for the parents. The parents love their children but are being pressured to surrender their integrity to have a relationship with them. Emotional extortion is not love. The irony, of course, is that the children present themselves as tolerant. The left tolerates every variation of appearance – tall, short, thin, fat, white, black, brown, yellow, rich, poor, gay, straight – anything and everything except opposing thoughts or opinions. Leftist tolerance is all form and no content.
Today’s indoctrinated adult children are so fragile that they are unwilling to agree to disagree. Some even require safe spaces and distance to protect themselves and their young children from the toxic ideas of conservative grandparents. The generation gap is no longer defined by race or religion. The generation gap is defined by politics, and dramatized by the 2020 presidential ticket.
America’s indoctrinated adult children have become ideological warriors. What they have not yet understood is that they are participating in their own destruction. The objective of political medicine is social control, submission, and centralized global governance. Parents must ask themselves, is it more loving to surrender to your children’s demand to wear masks and social distance? Or is it more loving to reject their demands for conformity and stand for freedom? What is a lose/lose dilemma for parents is a win/win situation for the cunning social engineers.
The pillars of Americanism are loyalty to family, faith, and flag. A Biden administration rejects them all and embraces leftism and China-centric globalism. The enemies of America understand that the only way to defeat America is from within, and the best way to collapse America from within is to destroy the American family.
Political medicine is not about public health. Our indoctrinated adult children do not understand the malevolence and pathology of those who seek absolute control. Wearing masks and social distancing will not protect them, their parents, or grandparents any more than the sisters could protect each other from Wild Bill in The Green Mile.
