Where is Stupidville, USA? There must be such a place hidden somewhere in the United States. (Before proceeding, I must, in good conscience, disclaim any inference to the small Midwestern town along the Ohio River. Surely, the fine folks of Steubenville, Ohio are blameless.) Somewhere in America, there must be a University of Inanity where previously normal humans are being transformed into blithering idiots. You know what I mean, the sort who believe and commit themselves to anti-truth and balderdash for purely obvious reasons.
What institution is cranking out graduates who are so patently foolish that they blame guns, gun-owners and the N.R.A. for the deadly acts of their own constituents? Where is the city or state that stamps out imbeciles who reject the Ten Commandments, yet demand strict adherence to the first law of the wicked, “Judge not!”
Why are we still hearing from defeated and discredited political hacks like Barack Obama’s C.I.A. Director, John Brennan, N.S.A. Advisor, James Clapper or F.B.I. Director, James Comey? And why do we endure the absurdly false assertion that the Trump campaign was infiltrated by Obama spies for purposes of protecting candidate Donald Trump?
Where do the dullard judges train who tell us that defending our borders amounts to racism or that coded within the words of the Constitution is a right for sodomites and lesbians to marry one another? And where is the anti-law college that teaches federal and supreme court judges that the Constitution contains a blank page upon which the anti-right to kill an inconvenient fetus can be inscribed?
Where is the anti-knowledge college that continues to profess evolution despite the total lack of evidence, or that man-made climate change is permanently altering the planet on the basis of easily refutable data? Many things perplex and astound folks today. This question has me baffled.
Liberals do not perceive facts as rational people do. Everything the see, say and do is filtered through the anti-American lens of their doomed political ideology. Their greatest trouble, however, is that the energy of movements built upon dissent, hate and rage has a short half-life. When everything is racist, before long, nothing is racist; and when cries of sexism saturate the human landscape, people become increasingly insensitive to subsequent allegations.
The American media operates more and more like a bad merger of two old science fiction television series. Network television fake news media personalities offer support to Democrats in one of two primary modes. Like the Daleks of Dr. Who, they approach non-liberals with one command, “Exterminate! Exterminate! EXTERMINATE!” And like the robot from Lost in Space, their response to every pro-American action of President Trump is to cry, “Warning…Warning…DANGER!” with arms flailing wildly, feigning incredulity and outrage.
But most of us are not living in a television series. Real people with genuine and reasonable concerns have been oppressed and deceived by the very people who are sworn to protect them and their constitutional rights. They have been habitually betrayed in maniacal fashion for nigh on five decades. Fortunately, the equilibrium is collapsing.
United States citizens are a generous, patient and forgiving people. But the hunger for freedom is a powerful fuel and history has recorded that when Americans are committed to a righteous cause, we are unstoppable against all enemies, foreign or domestic.
President Trump has breached the line; he has tipped the scale. He has demonstrated an innate ability to inspire people to reclaim their lives, their government and their nation from the ignoble and evil mechanics of legal and moral obstructionism and failure.
Above most others, one proverb best describes the American liberal. “He that justifies the wicked and he that condemns the righteous, both are an abomination to the Lord” (Prov. 17:15). We have a great wealth of wisdom in scripture. Perhaps, we should begin to make better use of it.
There may not be a literal Stupidville, but there are many virtual ones in America today, and no sane person wants to live in one.
