We are at War!
Saying something like that makes a lot of folks nervous. I say it often during my campaign. Watch me say it here at the Tea Party Express event in Cleveland last weekend. Go ahead. You will be glad you watched it.
The media has decided to call what I do “throwing fireballs.” They have labeled my presentation as “incendiary.” The big AM talk station in Columbus played my “We are at war” comment repeatedly at the top of every hour last Monday as part of their news-cast.
Their message is clear. “Watch out for this guy.” What scares them the most, however, is the thunderous applause that explodes as a result of my comments. They are very much aware that the folks in the heartland are alive and well. Their only chance is to marginalize us as “angry” corn-pokes. Well, it isn’t working. My voice speaks the words of millions of God-fearing folks who love this nation and the God who reigns over it.
But here is the catch. For over sixty years the Jesus-hating left has been using guerilla-war techniques to undermine the very foundation of this Constitutional Republic. We have heard rumors of this war, but only in the past couple of years has the enemy come out of the shadows.
You see, we have been IN a war, but we have not been AT war. Only recently has our side begun to enlist and as more and more of the mask of the enemy is peeled away our infantry is beginning to coalesce. For the longest time only one team has been on the field and as our locker room door finally begins to swing open the leftist radicals have begun to catch a glimpse of this emerging army of God-fearing Patriots. Their only hope is to stop us before we reach the field.
Yes, my friends, allow me to say it with zeal, with gusto, with a rumbling from deep in my soul.
WE ARE AT WAR !
I am not afraid to say it and I am not ashamed to say it. We are in a war for the very soul of this nation. It is time we called it war, it is time we acted as if it were war, and it is time to engage in the war.
That is what the Tea Party movement is all about. The left has been running up and down the field unopposed and all across this nation the “silent majority” is showing up at their local draft board.
I got this email yesterday from God-hater…a shot across the bow if you will. “Mr. Daubenmire, Just a friendly reminder on behalf of myself and millions(and counting...) of my secular American fellows that we are ready and prepared to defend by whatever just means necessary the attempts of theocrats to subvert our democracy by placing the Bible before the Constitution. Your attempt to de-educate the American populace by depriving its children of a quality education in favor of a mythological-based curriculum uninformed by authentic science is despicable and exposes the self-interest of your motives. To make use of your own analogy, the "AIDS" of humanism is, like the AIDS of the human body, an incurable virus. Human kind is moving beyond ancient "revelation" and embracing rational thought in order to ensure the greatest good for the greatest number, Christian or no. March in step, or be trodden under-foot. Earnestly, Dustin
I guess I am supposed to be afraid. Heck, Dustin and his playmates have had unopposed access to our children for far too long. It is against this secular army that we must engage.
I responded succinctly to Dustin, “LET THE GAMES BEGIN!”
War is defined as “a condition of active antagonism or contention:” The left loves to use the word…the war on poverty, the war on drugs, the war on ignorance. When they use the word they attach noble connotations. When our side uses it we become “hateful,”“bigoted,”“anti-government” and “racist.”
The Bible speaks of a “war in heaven.” Paul speaks about the weaponry in this war. “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”
The war we are in is a war for Truth. The weapons are ideas and beliefs. Deceptively we have been told that we were not permitted to fight with our weapons; that Bible-based-beliefs were not sanctioned and approved weaponry in this war, and that those who were highly skilled in wielding the “Sword of the Spirit” were prohibited from engaging in this battle for the mind. Well, no longer…”Let the games begin, Dustin.”
It is nothing new, this war. It goes back to the Garden. “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Enmity is a precursor of war. The battle between the two seeds continues to this day.
Most Americans don’t understand the battle. They think it is Republican vs. Democrat, Liberal vs. Conservative, or Red vs. Blue; But it is a war against Truth, a war of good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, the seed of the serpent vs. the Seed of the woman. They do not understand that merely substituting one set of beliefs (conservative) for another set of beliefs (progressive) will not win the war. Only Truth can set us free.
Let the games begin.
Violence is the modus operandi of the God-haters. It is the last resort of failed ideology. If the affairs in America descend into physical violence it will be the left that fires the first shot. The only hope for their “vain imaginations” is forced indoctrination. Those who rail against playground bullies are they themselves power mongering thugs. It is they, and their force-fed ideas, that we are at war against.
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Col. 2:8
Vain Deceit. That is the belly of the beast.
Some of you reading this may not understand. You may think I have gone off of my rocker, and that I am some sort of “dangerous religious freak.” That’s okay. It is not to you I speak.
But those who have “ears to hear and eyes to see” understand where I am coming from. You understand the weapons, you understand the philosophies, and you understand the war. We must turn our sights not to carnal weaponry but to “the weapons of our warfare” which will help us pull down those “strongholds” that currently hold sway in this nation.
“Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? …For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn.” I Cor. 9:7-10.
