Wednesday was a great day for Team Evil.
Our community organizer-in-chief–who probably couldn’t organize his sock drawer–unilaterally announced we’re gonna have “normal” relations with communist Cuba from now on, thus helping the communist regime hang onto power longer. Well, of course he’s going to help communists.
And Sony announced it’s not going to release its new movie, The Interview, in response to terrorist threats made by North Korea, whose gremlins hacked Sony’s computer system and released a lot of embarrassing emails by Sony personnel. But the bad guys sealed the deal by implying they were going to blow up a bunch of American movie theaters if they dared to show the film.
Remember, a few years ago, when a Canadian film company released a film about assassinating President George W. Bush? Sure, there were a lot of loud objections. But the Bush administration never threatened to kill people to keep the film from being shown. So The Interview, which is about a plot to bump off North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, will not be shown. And another run crosses the plate for the bad guys. You can get what you want by threatening to kill Americans.
One more thing to remember; and Psalm 11 says it best.
In the Lord put I my trust; how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
The Lord is in His holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men. The Lord trieth the righteous; but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth.
Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
For the righteous Lord loveeth righteousness: His countenance doth behold the upright.
The Lord is sovereign, the Lord reigneth: and it will not be a good day for the bad forever.
