GUILT AND REDEMPTION IN A HYPER-DIVIDED AMERICA (must read)
WND ^ | November 9, 2017 | David Kupelian

Posted on 11/09/2017 10:54:12 AM PST by unlearner

David Kupelian explains how the left manipulates people into betraying their deepest values:

It has become increasingly clear that the left’s ever-more-bizarre agenda for America – from passing laws prescribing imprisonment for those who fail to use the correct transgender pronoun (out of over 50 new genders!), to importing into the U.S. as many migrants as possible from impossible-to-vet, terrorist-hotbed regions of the world, to demonizing centuries of American history and destroying statues of the nation’s founders – is simply insane. Not “progressive," not "radical." Insane.

How and why, then, is the left able to "sell" this suicidal agenda to millions of otherwise rational people? By what magic do they convince decent, law-abiding Americans to allow men to use women’s restrooms and changing rooms and showers? To support abortion up to the very moment of birth, which is in every way identical to the heinous crime of infanticide? To believe that all white people, just because of their skin color, are automatically racists?

The answer is simple. They manipulate other people’s emotions, and thereby their thinking. And one of their most effective tactics is the guilt trip – essentially an emotional manipulation in which one party tries to induce guilt feelings in a target person or group for the purpose of controlling their behavior.

Of course, in this fallen world, people manipulate the thoughts and feelings of others all the time for the sake of power and advantage. But what happens when an entire political movement/ideology adopts these tactics wholesale?

Today’s left, which increasingly dominates the Democratic Party, attacks, demeans, demonizes and shames all those with whom it disagrees every day from morning until night – branding them as bigots, racists, misogynists, fascists, deplorables, homophobes, xenophobes, Islamaphobes and so on … in a word, haters...

The spirit of the Lying left is the spirit of antichrist whose only weapon is ACCUSATION. Satan’s tactic of ACCUSATION is exactly the Left’s tactic. They are one in the same. That is because the spirit of the Left is the satanic spirit of antichrist which will prevail LATER, BUT NOT NOW. For the time being WE will prevail because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.

More than ever, the Right needs to be VERY CLEAR about the Right’s objectives. The Left is clear about their ultimate objective: world totalitarian government. The ultimate goal of the Right should be to restore America’s Free Constitutional Republic.

If we are clear about our goals and objectives, no crazy, delusional idiotic lying Leftist tactic of accusation, condemnation, and guilt can stop us.

Yup, this is essentially the line of demarcation in my view between Trumpism and traditional conservatism. The traditional conservative can be quickly cowed into silence and submission by resort to guilt for the historic and current societal status of “oppressed” people of whatever kind. Trump does not give a crap, and he’s happy to let you know it! There’s no way forward other than Trumpism. There’s no reason for anyone in America to feel guilty about anything, other than what they are personally responsible for in their lives.

“this is essentially the line of demarcation in my view between Trumpism and traditional conservatism.”

Good observation.

“Lying left is the spirit of antichrist whose only weapon is ACCUSATION.”

The Devil also uses other tactics: delay, tempt, deceive, control, persecute, and devour.

The election of POTUS DJT has really brought forward the hatred that has been nurtured for many years in our schools and through the media.

We are witnessing what happens when people stop worshipping the creator and start worshipping the creation.

Romans 1:18 and onward is a very good description of what we are witnessing.

Satan’s gateway is ACCUSATION. From there he uses guilt and condemnation. Once he’s done that, he’s got you. That is EXACTLY how the Left operates.

Once Satan is able to bring guilt and condemnation into your life, then he can proceed with “delay, tempt, deceive, control, persecute, and devour”. But he must have your permission and he gets it through accusation, guilt and condemnation. That is also EXACTLY how the Left gets permission to proceed with their totalitarian and death-dealing agenda.

That is a keeper.
If only all had the peace of Christ to know it
but then, we would not have this problem, would we?

Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Amen, Bro, but remember, a minority of us + God is a great majority.

Keep fighting the good fight of faith and freedom.

Your welcome.

The questions and Evan’s answers at the end are almost as good as the speech itself.

For a long time I was puzzled by the things the Evan covers in these speeches. I just assume many others are searching for a reasonable explanation for the behavior and beliefs of otherwise intelligent individuals.

Mystery solved!
