Importing Hatred and Force

The Obama Administration tells us that they have a "robust" vetting system for Syrian refugees. The problem with that is that the Obama Administration said that the average person would save $2,500 by the implementation of Obamacare; it said that the Stimulus program would restart the economy; it said that ISIS was a Junior Varsity (JV) type terrorist organization; it said that ISIS was "contained." So, excuse me if I am wary of its statements on a "robust" vetting system. But, if so, why not tell us what that is? Run it down for us and please be specific.


The real question I have is why the Obama Administration seems intent on bringing Syrian refugees, many of whom are jihadists, into the United States while at the same time is deporting Christian refugees from Iraq and the clutches of ISIS? Are these not the same refugees fleeing the same dangers, the difference being only whether they are Christians or Muslims? And, if he is a Christian, as he claims, why does he always defer to Muslims in any instance of choice?


I am not going to pretend to know anything about Barack Obama. I have not researched his lineage, or his religion, or his childhood. It has long been moot. I recognized that we wanted a black president for all sorts of reasons. Obviously the black population wanted someone like them in office. Okay, I want someone like me in office, too, only I don't consider just being white as being like me. There are lots of white people and black people I don't want in the office of the President of the United States and there are very few who I do want in that office.


The main criteria for any president should be a love of country and through that love an undying determination to protect it and the citizens of it. Objectively, does that sound like a description of Barack Obama? Barack Obama is, and by his own proud admission, not that sort of president. I think he would gladly point out America's flaws as he sees them and as proudly point out his efforts to "correct" those flaws.


The first flaw that Obama recognizes is that this is a predominately white nation. He would like to correct that, first with opening the southern borders while at the same time enforcing the northern border. What is the difference? It is the difference between Christian refugees from ISIS and Syrian refugees from ISIS. The Syrian refugees are even better than Hispanic border jumpers, because they are both non-white and Islamic. That they are infused with Jihadists just makes his vision better as they would naturally attack whites or Christians in their terrorist attacks. Even better, he could stand on his podium and condemn the acts of violence while he has done everything he could, as president, to make them possible. We have already seen examples of this where illegal immigrants have committed horrendous crimes against the citizens of America with the encouragement of silence from the president and the continuation of the policies that have enabled them.


This is the administration we are expected to believe has a "robust" vetting system for Syrian refugees.


Knowing that I will be accused of hating Barack Obama and that is the source of my criticism, I will just say that I don't hate Barack Obama. To hate Barack Obama is to hate those who put him in office, which is a very good portion of the citizens of my nation. It is not his fault that the electorate put him in office twice. It is not his fault that he "fundamentally transformed America" as he promised to do. It is not his fault that the citizens of the United States elected a man who clearly had a past they all knew about, who had beliefs they all shared. How can I hate a man for being who he is and that the electorate of the United States elected twice? What would be the point of that hatred?


I don't even hate those who put Barack Obama in office. It was their support, or guilt, or "feelings" or hopes that made them vote the way they did. That I whole-heartedly disagree with them and their purposes does not make me hate them. It is a struggle, this idea of liberty and self-governance, that cannot be won by hatred and force. Unlike the leftists that have given up on the idea of liberty and self-governance and have resorted to hatred and force to accomplish their goals, I continue to hold onto the idea of making convincing arguments that avoid the confrontation.


Having been given their choice of presidents, Barack Obama, and the cooperation of the House and Senate for a time, we now have the America they wanted. Even with Republican control of the House and Senate, Barack Obama has been supported and enabled so nothing much has changed with that realignment.


So, this is it, this is "their" America. It is much more racially divided; it is much more dangerous; it is much more bankrupt; it is weaker internationally, both militarily and economically; it is much poorer on an individual basis; it is much less "free" with the NSA recording phone calls and reading emails. But, they will never recognize any of it, because they are not rational, these leftist supporters of Barack Obama. Their hatred for what America was overwhelms their ability to see the truth.


Okay, I understand that as well. There are political delusions on all sides, including mine. Even when this nation is thrown into chaos as a direct result of the economic and political policies of Barack Obama and those who support him, they will not see it. They will find it is all the fault of people like me, who lust for liberty and a sense of legal restraint of the government.


The question is what will they do about it? My guess is they will resort to hatred and force as they have so far and that will put me in the place of having to engage their hatred and force with hatred and force. I would much rather simply be left alone to live my life, but if it is their intent to import hatred and force into my neighborhood, that pretty much writes the script for the rest of my life, doesn't it?

  1. By the law of nature and of nature's God righteous self-defense is not hate. If God sees 2 sides fighting with hate in their hearts guess who will lose? Yup, the ones with hate in their hearts. If we are to win we must be right. Not right in eyes of men, not relative to other groups, not by the television news, not by the laws of men, but right by the Natural Law of the God. We must be the good guys.

    Love God, love your family, love thy neighbor, love liberty, love your country and fight like a caged animal when the time comes my friend. We fight because we love. If we are to win we must be the good guys in eyes of the LORD.

  2. Good article, this is why I stop into the patriot/liberty corner of internet every now and then.

    'But, they will never recognize any of it, because they are not rational, these leftist supporters of Barack Obama.'

    If by supporter, you mean the average liberal on the street then I agree. If you mean those who worked to put him in power, I disagree. The left (as in those who actually have political and economic power) is very rational; they have worked and refined their tactics for at least 2 centuries and are on the cusp of achieving victory. That their victory will destroy the Western world economically and socially is of no concern to them.

  3. The fact is that the left in America is an enemy of God. The politicians that they enable are domestic enemies of the Constitution as are their supporters and controllers. They will keep pushing until we start killing them off. The question is, what will it be that pushes us to that point?

  4. Hello- New here (from I forgot where). Very well written piece- as a Christian, I appreciate your reasoned discourse.
    And, your last sentence says it all- it does, & ours as well.

  5. They have already imported hatred and force into all our neighborhoods. Some more than others of course.

    Still illegal to meet them with anything more than equal hatred though as they seem to have a monopoly on the force part right now.

    1 Timothy 2:1-2... "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."

    When this becomes impossible, our hands are forced. We fight back. It's what satan loves. It is his plan of divide and conquer. The course of this world will continue until God steps in once again and puts a stop to it.

    Anon writes... "If we are to win we must be the good guys in eyes of the LORD."

    But there are no good guys in the eyes of the Lord.

    Steady Steve writes... "The fact is that the left in America is an enemy of God."

    So too is the right.

    Romans 3:10-20... "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes. Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin."

    What to do? But now...!

    Romans 3:21-28... "But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."

    Christ died for our sin and was raised again for our justification. Whoever understands that he is a sinner in need of a Savior and accepts Gods gift of His Son, nailed to the cross on his behalf, dying the death he deserved to die, is justified in the eyes of God.

    Ephesians 2:8-9... "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

    Whatever ugliness may come our way... come to Christ today. Accept Gods most generous gift. However our hands are forced, and into whatever they are forced, it will matter not as to where we will spend eternity. There is nothing more important than that.

    1. I believe on the LORD Jesus Christ and am saved by His grace. You should read Rom 3:23-31 above again and then read what I wrote again. The Holy Spirit of God in me insists and I repeat;

      If God sees two sides fighting with hate in their hearts guess who will lose? By the law of nature and of nature's God righteous self-defense is not hate.

      If we are to win we must be right. Not right in eyes of men, not right relative to other groups, not right according to the laws of man, but right by the Natural Law of God. We must be the good guys.

      Love God, love your family, love thy neighbor, love liberty, love your country and fight like a caged animal when the time comes my friends. We fight because we love. If we are to win we must be the good guys in the eyes of the LORD.

      In quoting Rom 3:23-31 you make my exact case for me. Not claiming that I am but was David not a man after His own heart despite David's behavior? We absolutely CAN be the good guys in the eyes of the LORD. I agree that ONLY through His saving grace is this possible but I pray you understand, possible it is.
