Church and State

Not a Christian

Over the weekend, Team Fedora Tipper got a couple of anti-Christian hashtags trending on Twitter. That’s nothing new, since these people define their identity by their hatred of Christians.

What is interesting about Christian-bashing on the part of internet atheists, and the Left in general, is how their rhetoric has taken on an implicit–and sometimes explicit–moralistic character.

Here’s a tweet from some vapid New Zealand MP claiming that the Holy Family were “Palestinian refugees.”

The Death Cult understand neither their enemy nor themselves, so it’s quite the spectacle watching them obliviously sermonize, complete with moral appeals to a faith about which they know nothing.

Such ill-informed preaching, particularly coming from a government official, represents another unforced tactical error on the Death Cult’s part. Their Enlightenment forebears conned Christians into accepting separation of Church and state to unilaterally disarm ourselves in the culture wars.

By prompting Christians to think about politics in terms of their faith, the Left risks forfeiting the advantage of granting themselves the freedom to speak politically in religious terms while Christians are reduced to engaging in politics solely with economic arguments.

Smugly browbeating Christians with pig-ignorant takes on their own religion is so colossally dumb, I can’t immediately grasp why the Left would do it.

All I can come up with is that it’s a striking example of premature Leftist overreach. They were supposed to have gained total victory by now, and their time preference is so high, they’re doing a touchdown dance on our twenty yard line.

I’m not the only one who’s noticed an air of thinly veiled desperation surrounding Leftist rhetoric these days. When you’re in a utopian cult that believed legalizing infanticide and butt marriage and electing a black president would usher in the end of history, seeing the prophecies fail must set you on edge.

There’s also Leftists’ growing dissatisfaction with Big Tech deplatforming anyone to the right of FDR. Concerning as we may find the Adpocalypse, the Left is beginning to realize that kicking Alex Jones off YouTube, banning MILO from Facebook, and shutting down Laura Loomer’s Twitter account hasn’t made the boogeyman go away.

The Left find themselves in a worse position, after a fashion. Before, all they had to do to keep tabs on what Paul Joseph Watson was up to was skim a Buzzfeed hit piece peppered with out-of-context tweets. Banishing him from their sight just let him slip into the shadows. He could be hiding in the laundry hamper for all they know.

The realization is dawning on a lot of ordinary people that we’ve been losing because our self-styled leaders keep honoring gentlemen’s agreements with the Left that categorically prevent us from winning.

A smart movement whose leaders cared about the rank and file’s interests would seize the advantage offered by exile to the underground. Thus the Conservative Inc. quislings will have to be deposed first.
