Things Fall Apart: How American Voters Gave Up on Democrats (for now)
American Democrats have religion too!
Why don’t religious people flock to the Democrat Party in the United States? This question seems to befuddle American political operatives, to the point where they silly themselves all over the internet. The latest spill of DemoSillyThink comes from the pages of The New Republic, in a piece by Tiffany Stanley entitled, “Things fall apart, how the Democrats gave up on religious voters.”
Ha ha ha ha ha.
Now, my servants, I did not use the term “Democrat;” that is Stanley’s. I prefer to look at the world through more general categories of (1) those who take God and his word seriously; and, (2) those who don’t. In Hell we refer to these as (1) those we hate; and, (2) those we love, respectively.
Of course, it is true, as Tiffany sees but does not understand, that Democrats in the United States almost to a person please me by choosing to populate my Category 2.
And Tiffany’s article is subtitled “How the Democrats gave up on religious voters”?
Ha ha ha ha ha .
Try “How religious voters saw right through godless Democrat religotalk.”
Tiffany details the history of the Democrat’s exercises in ”faith outreach” to reach “religious people.” Barack Obama, of course, was the “shining hope for the religious left,” one who was not afraid of the “language of faith,” and “a liberal who gave the impression that his religiosity was heartfelt, genuine, and important to his politics.”
News bulletin to all the Tiffany’s of the world. The “religious left” was, and is, already speaking their “language of faith” loud and clear, it’s just a different faith. You only confuse people when you try to “give the impression” of genuine religiosity to those I hate in Category 1.
You see, they see you. They see your words in action, as Rush Limbaugh observes today. It’s hard to improve on Rush, but I’ll try: We see you delighting in snubbing Christmas at every chance, and apologizing at every other. We see you promoting the killing of babies, both born and unborn. We see you trying to gut the military, marriages, and churches, turning them over to a homosexual political agenda. We see you openly supporting a mosque at Ground Zero. We see you trying to get rid of organizations rooted in God, like the Boy Scouts. We see religious people mocked by your “shining hope” as religious clingers. And at every turn we see you trying to replace God with government, which is to say, you.
Not true! We believe in God! We believe in God!
Blah blah blah.
So do I!
Tiffany even quotes sociologist Rebecca Sager, who with no understanding whatsoever blurts:
“Ninety percent of people believe in some sort of God. It’s mind-boggling why you would cede those voters to the Republican Party.”
Tiffany, Rebecca, listen: Category 2 is full of believers in God (mostly the ”some sort” kind). Stated belief in God is not the basis for my categories, and it’s not the way the American public categorizes.
And that’s why the American Left will never win with American religious people. Because in the land of the free and the home of the brave a huge majority still takes God and his word seriously, putting them squarely in Category 1.
I know, my servants, I know. I am trying to change that as fast as I can. But having Democrats like Barack Obama go around pretending like they are Christians does not help. Like using a light to hide darkness, “giving the impression of faith” only highlights the liberal’s true faith.
My advice to liberals: Stop acting like Christians that you are not. Both your base and your opponents resent such duplicity. Your best bet, and I have centuries of experience in this area, is to stop the platitudes and cop the attitudes of your true self: a self that desires to make God in its own image, and lord it over others to make them in your likeness.
Remember, I am Liberal One.
Admit it. Live it.
