Barber: The Godless Democrats

By Matt Barber

But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven. (Matthew 10:33)

Are you a believer? I’m not asking if you’re a Democrat, a Republican or an independent. I’m asking if you believe in God. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of the living, not the dead. The great “I Am.”

If so, here’s something to seriously consider in the voting booth on Nov. 6. In its official 2012 version, the Democratic Party finally scrubbed all recognition of God from its party platform. This was intentional. It was by design. No one should have been surprised. It was a long time coming.

In just the last decade or so, extremist elements within the Democratic establishment have lodged a successful secular-socialist coup. The alarming consequences of this “progressive” triumph have become manifest throughout the pages of the DNC’s 2012 platform. They were also on display at the recent Democratic convention.

Slippery was the slope into Democrats’ anti-theist primordial bog. In 2004, there were seven mentions of God in the platform. In 2008, there was but one.

And in 2012?

None.

Zip, zero, nada.

Godless.

That is, until some in leadership realized that political fallout was reaching, well, biblical proportions. On Wednesday, in a highly contentious and unprecedented move, the DNC held a special session where, to a volley of stadium-shaking boos, Democratic leaders narrowly passed a resolution to put “God” back in the platform.

It was transparent as anything political can be. It was done out of fear, not love; necessity, not respect; incredulity, not fidelity. Nonetheless, Democrats, like everyone, should be grateful that God is more faithful to them than they were to Him.

Still, what’s equally revealing is what replaced God. The term “government” is referenced repeatedly – 55 times, in fact. Nearly each reference is premised on the dubious claim that big government can, and will, cure all of humanity’s ills. The DNC even played a promotional video proclaiming: “The government is the only thing we all belong to.”

Yikes.

True, the 2012 Republican Party platform also mentions government, but in the context of limiting its size and scope – of protecting individual liberty from the authoritarian monstrosity envisaged by Obama and the DNC. As Ronald Reagan observed: “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”

The Republican platform also acknowledges God. Twelve times, in fact. And each acknowledgement falls within the framework of “our country’s Judeo-Christian heritage.” This heritage is something the Democratic Party both stubbornly denies and viscerally abhors.

Shortly after the DNC released its secularist platform, I tweeted: “Well, Democrats are officially ‘godless’ …” Zack Ford, a “progressive” blogger with ThinkProgress.org, captured, I think, the general consensus among Democratic movers-and-shakers. He tartly replied: “Good!”

Another of my Twitter followers, @redandright, answered: “In all fairness to the DNC, I think He [God] requested it.”

She may be on to something.

How beautiful are your tents, O Jacob, and your dwelling places, O Israel! … Blessed is the one who blesses you, and cursed is the one who curses you! (Numbers 24:5, 9)

No anti-God platform would be complete without taking Wite-Out™ to all things pro-Israel. Jews, take note: Democrats’ 2012 platform also “yanked” all previous pro-Israel language, even refusing to acknowledge Jerusalem as her capital.

This, too, should come as little surprise. Throughout his presidency, Barack Obama has shown overt hostility toward Israel – something no other president in American history has done. Instead, Obama has unapologetically sided with the Palestinian Authority, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamo-fascist radicals, all of whom seek Israel’s total annihilation.

Even so, after widespread Judeo-Christian outrage, language referencing Israel was once again restored.

Another too-little-too-late act of desperation? Perhaps. As Friedrich Nietzsche, one of the God-deniers favorite comrades-in-nothingness, once said: “I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”

And then there’s Democrats’ sacred cow: abortion. Welcome to today’s Democratic Party, where the women are “sexually liberated” and their offspring gravely imperiled.

Indeed, it was genuinely sad to see such a parade of angry, hurting women take the DNC stage to command, with perverse pride, some phantom “constitutional right” to snuff-out their very own young (Bet she would’ve looked like you, mom).

Their party platform is no better. It “unequivocally” demands unfettered abortion on demand, at taxpayer expense, through the ninth month – “regardless of ability to pay.”

By contrast, the Republican platform aligns with the actual Constitution, stating: “[T]he unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.”

To be sure, it would have been helpful if the DNC had included, in its Glossary of Terms: “Reproductive Freedom: noun 1) ‘Sexual liberation’ without consequence (i.e., hook-up, cover-up, pay-up and shut-up.)”

I know. I’ve declared “war on women.” But we conservatives believe that sexual relativism comes at a cost – one we refuse to subsidize. I prefer to call it a “war for responsibility.”

Speaking of the “war on women,” wasn’t it rich? The DNC featured, as its heavy hitter, Bill Clinton – former Preezy of the Sleazy, serial sexual-harasser and, likely, so very much more.

They also had an emotional tribute to late Sen. Teddy “splash-’N-dash” Kennedy. I wonder if Mary Jo’s folks got free admission. Hypocrisy, thy initials are D-N-C.

But at least the Democratic platform is “pro-education,” right?

Well, for the record, being “pro-education” means teaching little Billy to read, not which eyeliner matches his skirt. (Yes, this godless manifesto went there too.)

Democrats signed-off on every demand of radical “LGBT” pressure groups. They even put their official stamp of approval on “same-sex marriage,” a postmodern novelty rejected in 32 of 32 states wherein “we the people” have spoken.

No, this ain’t your father’s Democratic Party. In fact, as the DNC goes godless, I suspect quite a few God-fearing Democrats are contemplating a break with tradition.

“Hope?”

Not so much.

“Change?”

Well, now maybe we’re on to something.

      I went to see “2016, Obama’s America.” If you haven’t seen it, GO SEE IT! It tells you about Obama’s life through his own words and history and lets you come to your own conclusion. It is his history as he has told us or is documented. Obama’s main mentor as a young teenager was a Communist, the late Frank Marshall Davis from Chicago who was under watch by the FBI. He was a journalist from Chicago who moved to Hawaii. He was considered dangerous in the eyes of the FBI. This guy was twice as old as Obama so one can imagine what an influence he was with a teenager who did not have a dad. He and the young Obama did drugs together. This man authored books of hard core pornography, also. Obama’s grandfather and his mother were communist sympathizer. It is such an eye opening movie. Now it understandable why Obama ended up in Chicago and friends with the communist activist Bill Ayers. How was it he was never vetted before he ran for office. Everything is documented and a lot of it comes from his own book “Dreams From My Father.” The key word in his title being “From.” I don’t think the liberals or progressives have the courage to see it unless they want to cheer him on! Most Dems are just plain ignorant and just don’t care. No wonder they wanted to leave God out of their convention.

      This part is not in the movie but I now know why the liberals are so Pro Abortion after seeing the movie. It all started with Margret Sanger, a Hitler sympathizer who started Planned Parenthood. Biographers and Hollywood will make her out to be a sacred cow and someone to be worshiped. She was an atheist and socialist who talked to the KKK and other notorious groups and wanted to do away with inferior groups. She wanted to create a superior society and eliminate as many blacks, minorities, the disabled, the disenfranchised, and the poor as possible. It is all is starting to make more sense now! If homosexual think they are safe with this crowd they better think again. They are being used for their money, their vote and anything else and then OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! LITERALLY! ISLAM AND COMMUNIST ARE THE MOST INTOLERANT GROUPS IN THE WORLD!

      It makes me sick to see the POTUS finally trying to pretend he actually is the president while the election campaign is going on. He acts totally different now than he did a couple of months ago.
      His laughing, foolish and silly jokes about the Republicans show that he is not taking his duty and responsibility to all American people seriously. What has he actually said except to throw slurs? He has a plan to bring our country down so for a few short weeks he is pretending to care about us, but it is a lie like all his other lies.

    Yes, I am a believer. It upsets me to see and hear our President mock God and place Him at a comparable level with our government. Using the word or reference to “God” or not, the Democrats have thrived on being the I Am.
    Believers believe that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, He was buried and that He rose again on the third day. Our guideline for life is the bible.

    Why are LGBT-equality issues “special interest” but religious issues “mainstream?” Mr. Barber, I live under a government which is NOT religious; in fact, the CONSTITUTION prohibits ANY form of religious test … something I follow: I don’t care what, or no, religion is a candidate.

    Jenersea, unfortunately it appears you disagree. I presume your GOD only refers to the Christian god and people of other faiths can go to Hell? Oh … “communists?” You have no clue what you mean.

      Interesting how you can take a one sentence post and make all those assumptions as to what Jenersea said.
      Governments are not religions, people place faith in religion.
      Some people in government are religious and some not.
      Please explain where the constitution prohibits religious tests. Tell us what you are talking about. 1st Amendment?
      The constitution refers to “religion” not denomination.
      Jenersea said “God” and you are assuming she means her God or the God of Abraham, the Christian God?
      Why do you assume everyone else can go to hell ?
      Are you afraid that she doesn’t know what a communist is ?
      Does your mother know you are playing on the computer ?

      Brierebear, did you land on the wrong website? Which constitution are you referring to? The one I read from the United States of America is bathed in the blessing of the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob, and guarantees the freedom of religion, not the freedom from religion. Our founding fathers, believers in the power of God in one fashion or another, founded this country on Christian/Judeo principles. No amount of complaint, debate or revisionist rhetoric can change this fact. May God have mercy on our great country!

    Not surprising to me: that the party that nominated the spawn of Satan as their Presidential candidate would not honor God.
    The Demoncrats fraught with excommunicated Catholics: Biden, Pelosi, Kerry and the Kennedy’s to name just a few continues to kill babies and steal from the working man while in slaving the poor. If these people are not excommunicated then the Catholic church is not following their own rules and regulations. These murderers are not Christians in any way, shape or form nor is anyone who would vote for a Demoncrat.

      KC: The one thing I know about churches is that they are hospitals for sick sinners. That would include the bunch you named. They should not receive communiion, for certain, but just because they’re stupid doesn’t mean they should be excommunicated if there is a slight chance they will repent and change their ways. Do not be so quick to judge. It isn’t the Christian thing to do.

      These people are national leaders leading sheep into sin. Where they belong is out of church and into somewhere where they cannot influence others into sin. Shame on them for trying to change what is God’s will to suit their own selfish desires.

    Democrats keep saying the Republicans are going to ban birth control. That is an outright lie. Republicans don’t think taxpayers should have to pay for your birth control. They also don’t think that the First Amendment should be trampled all over by the government by forcing religious hospitals to perform abortions and hand out contraceptives.

    You want contraceptives they’re available cheaply practically any place you go. You want to kill your baby, go to Planned Parenthood. They’ve planned well how to kill unborn babies.

    Anyone who was even the slightest bit surprised by the “omission” of reference to the Almighty in the democrat platform has obviously not been paying attention for the last couple of decades.

    They want government to replace God.
    They want the village to replace God.
    They want politicians to replace God.
    Then they wonder why God seems to be ignoring America!

    An additional point: The democrats’ later changing of their platform to include “God” only serves to highlight how stupid they believe their constituency to be.

    My mother who died at a young age of breast cancer also mentioned action rather than words and I guess this includes these comments about God. I’m seeing a lot of words of many of you supporting a Christian god. But just words. When you fight to repeal health care to a child with a pre-condition health problem, that isn’t the same Christian god that I’m aware of. When you and the Republican leadership but out and pass a budget that cuts billions of dollars to the less fortunate, cut poverty programs, and require layoffs of teachers, policemen, and firemen while continuing rewarding the rich with their trillions from tax cuts, that in my opinion if Godless, anti-family, and anti-pro-life. It seems to me, instead of funding programs like family planning to cut down on the number of abortions, many fight tooth and nail against abortions even if there is a rape or incest involved. And then, it the child is born, you cut funds for health care, food, and just living. That, if a different god than I knew when I was growing up.

      The God of Holy Scripture .. my Lord and God .. is a God of and for personal responsibility (“But if any provideth not for his own, and specially his own household, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever” “If any will not work, neither let him eat.”) I am responsible as I give to my church .. as I CHOOSE to assist those in need (NOT as the government or someone else chooses to TAKE from me and force me to do things THEY choose.) Someone else cannot trust a Savior for the payment of my sins .. only I can do that. I am responsible for MY decisions and MY actions .. as the government takes from me and does things as a corporate entity, that takes away my ability to assist those who are truly in need.

      It amazes me that someone (as you are doing) can judge others based on their support (of lack of support) for government programs. The only thing that displays is a lack of support for government programs, not a lack of support for others in need. The welfare state of government is the worst thing to happen to actual charitable aid to the needy as the government is a terribly wasteful entity and it takes away resources that used to be given to local churches and organizations that actually help people in need.

      Please let me remind you there are hospitals that will take children with pre-condition not to mention many charities. Big business hires many people and the benefits were great before government got involved. People pay taxes when they have jobs not when they are on unemployment. People pay taxes when businesses don’t go under because of so many unnecessay taxes and regulations and they can hire people. People pay taxes when they can buy things and live a comfortable lives. Unions had great benefits until they demanded so much money and benefits beyond what companies could afford to pass on to customers. They had to move to foreign lands to stay competitve so Americans could afford their products. Churches all over this country have food pantries to feed the hungry. Teacher are in government unions and make some of the highest saleries anywhere with fabulous retiremnt plans as do firemen and policemen. (Non of them are on social security and recieve the meager benefits most retired folks do even though these folks pour double and triple into social security.) They all are in government unions. Get off your soapbox because you do not know what you are talking about. As for rape and incest, how many women do you know who have been pregnant because of this? Well, I do know a victim and a product of that is a child living in this house. A beautiful boy whose life is valued every bit as much as yours or anyone elses. It wasn’t his fault some sick #$@^% raped his mother. But it is his mother’s grace and that of God’s that he is here today. I call all of these actions by the GRACE OF GOD and CHRISTIAN. We have a little health care ( not much) but we don’t live above our means either. We know what we can afford and what we can’t afford. We pay for our meds and our dentist and our eye care. It is tough but who said other people were suppose to pay for it? That is what you want. The money has to come from somewhere. So you want someone else to pay for you. Well, I work hard enough for my own family and I don’t want to pay for you. Quit begging and get to work!

      You need to learn the Republican platform. You’re spouting liberal talking points. There are issues that Romney/Ryan would keep in Obamacare. One is the pre-existing conditions. Renew your memory of Obamacare. Obama will put all children into Medicaid including physical and mentally challenged children which will be a “voucher program”. Children today from poor families are already under a straight Medicaid program.

      Bill Clinton said “1″ month ago that taxes should not be cut on anyone. The economy is too fragile. Strange how democrats change their colors. He’s now doing his “To Do List” to prepare for Hillary in 2016. Obama has pushed him out for 4 years and kept Hillary out of the country for 4 years so he couldn’t be upstaged. The Clinton’s only do things for a reason for their benefit. I’m anxious to see the outrageous cost of Obamacare for everyone. Most won’t be able to afford it. The CBO has now stated that it will cost just short of $2 Trillion instead of the $787 billion. They also say it will cause another 30 million that will loose benefits. I guess this doesn’t mean anything to you. I can afford but most will struggle with it. There is a reason why Obama doesn’t talk about his signature program. He didn’t even push it in his acceptance speech.

    Actually, at the convention the democratic leaders did NOT ‘pass’ a resolution to add anything back in. It was overwhelmingly defeated all three times. Between the cheers and jeers, the jeers have it. It was forced after the third OUTCRY to defeat it in an “Or Else” decision by the leaders behind the podium. Talk about a democratic vote. The decision was made long before a vote was even discussed. Another democratic FAIL. The temperament of the democratic politic was to vote it out. Either way it would was a clear display of sheer cowardice.

      I am sorry you see it that way. We are going to elect a President in November regardless of their religion.
      Presidents are not elected according to religion anyway. That may be your way of looking at it, we all have our reasons.
      If you vote you will vote for a man who has made it obvious that his comments to God are heard or not heard.
      Worldwide when God is mentioned it is usually the God of Abraham. John 9:31 declares; We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly and who does his will…goes on to say God listens to prayers of a sinner for salvation. Voters usually vote against a candidate by voting for their choice.

      I am a born again Christian, too, who came from the Mormon faith. They are not wolves in sheeps clothing and you are suppose to pray for them and lift them up in prayer and love them as a Christian. Who says Paul Ryan is not a Christian. I know many Evangelical Catholics who know Jesus and have accepted Him as their Lord and Savior. They are not teachers they are leaders trying to take us out of perilous times. They are friends of Israel which is more important to God right now than most anything else. We are in very dangerous times and God wants us to turn from our wicked ways more than to keep a leader in like Obama. You NOT voting is just validating a wicked man in office who is an enemy of Israel and a friend of Islam

      “If My people will humble themselves
      and pray, and search for Me, and turn from their
      wicked way, I will hear them from heaven and forgive
      their sins and heal their land” (2 Chronicles

      Charles Finney, who helped introduce half a

      Ryan is a catholic. But you can vote for a non-christian? The democrats took God out of their platform and was forced to put it back although the vote was obviously against it. Usually born again christians are more tolerant than yourself. Strange……

      One question before I comment. Are you a liberal troll trying to cause trouble here? If not, then you are merely misinformed. You can be any kind of Christian you want to be, but labeling yourself “Born Again Christian” doesn’t mean too much. All baptized Christians are reborn into faith, and both Romney and Ryan are true Christians who live up to their different interpretation of what that means. Neither are they wolves in sheep’s clothing, but dynamic leaders who will bring us back to a country where those who are religious will not be mocked (as you have mocked them) nor forced into something they cannot believe in. You obviously have not done your homework and believe the prattle you’ve learned from the malignant minds of so-called Church Leaders who are merely protecting their own flocks from straying, just in case they hear the truth elsewhere. If you are voting for Obama, you lose. If you are voting for a third party candidate…we all lose.

      Bethvarley, I too am a born again Christian. My conscience will readily allow me to vote for Romney/Ryan. Since our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has never been on a ballot, at nearly 62 years of age I have spent the past 44 years voting in every election and in every position for the lesser of two evils. (There is none Righteous, no, not one!)

      So, my sister, on November 6th, you will not be deciding between Obama and Romney as to which one should be your Sunday School teacher, Youth Pastor, Senior Pastor, Bishop, Deacon or Elder. You will be voting for one of these two men to become the POTUS. You are correct false teachers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, should be kept out of the church. But we are talking about for whom to cast your ballot for President, the man who will appoint Supreme Court Justices for the next four years. Are you ready for more Elana Kagans and Sonia Sotomayors? The four oldest Justices are Ruth Bader Ginsberg at age 79, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy both 76, and Stephen Breyer age 74. Two conservatives and two liberals. Do you want Barak Obama or Mitt Romney selecting their replacements?

      Keep in mind God will always avenge the shedding of innocent blood. So are you prepared to give an account of your vote for one who is so blatantly pro-abortion by both his words and actions as Barak Obama? Go back to Genesis and read about Abel’s innocent blood crying out from the ground. What about the 54 million innocents we have allowed to be torn from their mothers’ wombs since Roe-Vs-Wade?

      Next time you read the parable of the talents, consider that in this country, our Creator has given us the right and responsibility to select our political leaders. Think of that as a talent God has given you. You can’t not vote. That is like hiding your talent in the ground and we know what the Master said would happen to those slothful servants.

      Selah (think about it).

    The real travesty of the DNC freak show was NOT that they removed “God” from their platform…they’ve done that with their policies for the last 50 years. The real shocker is how callously they put the wording back in with that infamous voice vote. “2/3 approved” my rear end. It was already on their prompter…so it was already decided. Those fools in the hall were totally ignored. Typical Democrats.

      As a former Mormon I remember: Even most Mormans believe this but they don’t declare it in a way that Christians do and entagle it with a lot of unbiblical jibberish. They have some addition far out beliefs that are very bazar and not biblical plus the addition of the Book of Mormon and The Pearl of Great Price. Christians KNOW there is only one book………The Holy Bible.

      I am an evangelical Christian, and feel that belief in and holding to Judeo-Christian principles is a far sight better than a godless mindset that negates the value of basic deist philosophies which also had a part in our country’s founding; i.e., similar to a 12-step program that makes an indirect reference to a higher power as if to say, “If that works for you, good! Go for it!”

      Judeo-Christian principles are also a far sight better than the hijacked, twisted, warped doctrines that radical Islamists pull out of their holy book to justify murder and mayhem.

      Similar to comments posted already, everyone needs to answer some very key questions; one being directly from Jesus Himself, i.e., “Who do you say that I am?” Being a Christian is based on the core beliefs (taken as matters of faith) that Jesus is a member of the Holy Trinity-at the same time God and Son of Man,” and as @bizzybuzzer reminded earlier (9/10 2:59 PM), “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, He was buried and that He rose again on the third day according to the scriptures.”

      The label “Christian” as used in our culture means a lot of things and tends to be thrown around loosely. In its first usage in scripture in the original language, it meant “Christ ones,” i.e., disciples or followers, not groupies who casually affiliate with Christianity as a matter of convenience or glom onto the label because of knowledge about Christ and what He did during His short earthly ministry. When one trusts Christ to be his personal savior, our Lord doesn’t want to just ride along, He wants to get behind the wheel of one’s life and be allowed to change direction 180 degrees if necessary. Christianity is the only “religious” system where God has reached down to man with His one and only perfect plan through His Son to enable man to have relationship with Him. All other religions are methodologies whereby man attempts to reach “up to God” through works-based systems or man-induced mysticism with focal points being anything or anyone but Christ. The Biblical record of John’s gospel in the New Testament provides a clear unambiguous starting point for those seeking or new believers who desire to grow.

      While the Presidency is the highest office over ALL Americans, there still can be no litmus or “pass/fail” test relative to a certain religion being a criterion. John F. Kennedy withstood an anti-Catholic fervor in his campaign leading to the 1960 election. However, from a cultural standpoint, do we not want someone to lead us who at least understands and supports the importance of cultural and social interpersonal values held by a large percentage of the population that largely originate from religion? Do we not need a President who is genuinely tolerant and enables spiritual matters to be more visible in the public square without political correctness getting in the way; someone who does not promote for or discriminate against any one spiritual practice? Finally, do we not want a President who will at least pledge to promote safety and security to one of our closest allies, Israel? On this last one, we certainly do not have it with the current office holder.

      Understanding Taqiyya ― Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah:
      Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”. A Muslim is even permitted to deny or denounce his faith if, in so doing, he protects or furthers the interests of Islam, so long as he remains faithful to Islam in his heart.
      According to the above website explaining Islam it would not be a requirement for the POTUS to answer that question truthfully.

      akageorge, since you claim to be a conservative, just what is it that you are trying to conserve? Is it the concept upon which this country was founded? You know, the part that says that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. And that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?

      Whoa, sounds like the founders believed in a God, a Creator.

      Or are you trying to conserve the concept they had that in declaring their independence from the British Crown they were, “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our (their) intentions,”? Uh Oh, another indication they believed in a God.

      Or maybe it was the, “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,” with which they, mutually pledged to each other their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor? Another not so thinly veiled reference to their belief in a Divinity, wouldn’t you say?

      Oh my, that was three pronouncements of God. Are you saying the founders made three too many in the Declaration of Independence?

      I, for one am glad you are a republican. But, don’t fool yourself, you are not a conservative. You are desiring to overturn not conserve what the founding fathers and every generation since (including yours truly) has fought to secure for ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of Almighty God on this country.

      If the believers left the GOP, those remaining in it would be a probably well funded minority party along the lines of the Green Party.

    Our ancestors came to America for freedom of religion. The Decloration of Independence was written Under God. The Constitution was written under the guidelines of the bible, and the men who organized and rallied the fight for freedom were Christian Pastors. No Christian is trying to force God on to anyone. It is an individual choice. The GOP is not in the business of theology, the GOP was founded on the genius of the bible and faith in God. Many have died to protect it.

    The teachings of Marx of ever present in Obama’s presidency.

    All of the nation’s priest, pastors and rabbi’s need to stand up and preach what is happening to our religious institutions before they fall victims to the atheist actions of the media liberals, democrats, ACLU and Freedom From Religion and Obama’s commie czars.

    in reading j. edgar hoover’s “masters of deceit” he deals with the activities of communist party usa from it’s founding in 1919 under direct over sight of valadimr lennin of the soveit union. until 1958 when the book was written. mr hoover shows how communist party usa infiltrated the unions, black commnities, the educational system, churches, and eventualy even other political parties. no one could ever be elected with the communist party usa brand name. the 60′s radicles including students for a democratic soceity of which the clintons were a part of later changed into the weather underground of which bill ayers was also involved in are communist revolutionaries as communist party usa operatives. the black panthers are also included as a communist party revolutionary organization. their sole purpose is to violenty over throw the us government. preisident obama has been mentored by bill ayers as well as by other revolutionaries. after obama’s open mic conversation with validimr putin it seems that obama may have been tagged by people from the soveit union through communist party usa to be primed in his earlier years and groomed to eventually becoming preisident. once funding for communist party usa dried up after the demise of the soveit union funding for revolutionary activities came from george soros. if obama should be defeated in november, he will continue to promote revolution and should be considered dangerous along with the clintons. obama believes him self to be god his ego demonstrates this. the removal of god and christ from the democrat party’s platform gives way for the democrats to see obama as god. in all there is no such thing as an athiest. athiesm is nothing but a willful supression of the existance of god.romans 1:18 states this plainly. athieism is used to justify genocide such as hitler’s attempt to exterminate the jewish people as well as the shedding of innocent blood of un born children. athiesm produces no sence of conscience. any thing that reminds athiests of god such as public prayer, nativity scenes, bibles and the jewish people who brougth the messiah, jesus christ who is god blessed forever, they will milliantly fight against to have them removed forever. as psalm 2:1-6 states,”why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? the kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together against the lord and against his anointed, saying, let us burst their bonds apart and cast their cords from us. he who sits in the heavens laughs,the lord holds them in derision. then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury saying, as for me i have set my king on zion my holy hill.” such words as this causes much hatred among athiests. no wonder they willfully suppress the existance of god. they want to continue in their sins with out impunity for the shedding of much innocent blood through their policies by means of government.

    Again I canot emphasize enough to see “2016, Obama’s America.” If you haven’t seen it, GO SEE IT! It tells you about Obama’s life through his own words and history and lets you come to your own conclusion. It is his history as he has told us or is documented. Obama’s main mentor as a young teenager was a Communist, the late Frank Marshall Davis from Chicago who was under watch by the FBI. He was a journalist from Chicago who moved to Hawaii. He was considered dangerous in the eyes of the FBI. This guy was twice as old as Obama so one can imagine what an influence he was with a teenager who did not have a dad. Obama’s mother had left her husband in Indonesia and moved back to Hawaii. Obama’s grandfather and his mother were communist sympathizer. Davis was considered a father figure to the young Obama. This “father figure” was condoned as that by Obama’s granfather and mother. He authored books of hard core pornography and he and Obama did drugs together. It is such an eye opening movie. Now it understandable why Obama ended up in Chicago and friends with the communist activist Bill Ayers. How was it he was never vetted before he ran for office. Everything is documented and a lot of it comes from his own book “Dreams From My Father.” The key word in his title being “From.” I don’t think the liberals or progressives have the courage to see it unless they want to cheer him on! Most Dems are just plain ignorant and or just don’t care. No wonder they wanted to leave God out of their convention.

    This part is not in the movie but I now know why the liberals are so Pro Abortion after seeing the movie. It all started with Margret Sanger, a Hitler sympathizer who started Planned Parenthood. Biographers and Hollywood will make her out to be a sacred cow and someone to be worshiped. She was an atheist and socialist who talked to the KKK and other notorious groups and wanted to do away with inferior groups. She wanted to create a superior society and eliminate as many blacks, minorities, the disabled, the disenfranchised, and the poor as possible. It is all is starting to make more sense now! If homosexual think they are safe with this crowd they better think again. They are being used for their money, their vote and anything else and then OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! LITERALLY! ISLAM AND COMMUNIST ARE THE MOST INTOLERANT GROUPS IN THE WORLD! You will find out why Obama believes what he blieves and where he is trying to take our country with it.
