As children, many of us were taught never to sass our elders. Sass means to be bold, impudent, or impertinent, usually with an emphasis on being disrespectful in the process. Greta Thunberg’s “How dare you!” speech to the U.N. is a nauseatingly perfect example of sass.
But it’s time for sass to have a new meaning: Stop Atheist Socialism (SAS).
President Trump hit it out of the ballpark during his February 4, 2020 SOTU speech when he said, “To those watching at home tonight, I want you to know: We will never let socialism destroy American healthcare!” This reprises his forceful statement during his 2019 SOTU that America would never be socialist. Both times he received a standing ovation from Republicans while Democrats sat with folded arms and a childish, petulant scowl on their faces.
Socialism, the kid brother of Communism, is atheistic to the core. If you truly believe in an all-powerful God to whom we’re accountable, believing in an all-powerful state is a non-starter. Likewise, a belief in an all-powerful state as the solution to all our problems automatically precludes a belief in God. The two are mutually exclusive, regardless of any lies, misrepresentations, or half-truths promulgated by the political left and their mafia media allies.
Socialism is also destructive to the core; witness the results in Russia, China, Vietnam, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and yes, NAZI Germany during World War II.
NAZI is an abbreviation for Nationalsozialist, a political party in Germany before and during the war. The full name was Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the National Socialist German Worker's Party. Contrary to what you might see on the mafia media fake news, NAZI’s were most emphatically not right-wingers. They were socialists, hard leftists, almost Communist in their ideology.
Socialism is an ideology that requires the government to be in control of the economy because it can’t be left to the whims of “selfish individuals and capitalists.” What socialists never mention is that the people in government who will assume control of the economy under socialism are also selfish individuals.
Just because a person goes to work for the government, it doesn’t mean they automatically turn into a saint. Usually, it means the exact opposite. Whenever a person is given the power to control other people’s lives, they almost always exercise it to their own benefit. It’s easier to control other people than it is to exert self-control over yourself. People who have the discipline and restraint not to abuse power are so rare and noteworthy as to merit their own page in history, and there is almost always an overriding religious motivation behind their self-denial of the perks of power.
Socialism can’t produce that kind of self-restraint because socialism is all about the here and now, trying to create heaven on earth, whereas the ideology of saints has always been to produce works that will bear fruit in heaven for all eternity. Whenever socialism becomes ascendant, faith in God automatically decreases. Instead of producing an earthly paradise or utopia, the most likely outcome is hell on earth.
Patriotic Americans need to stand with President Trump to stop atheist socialism from destroying not only our top-notch healthcare system but our country as a whole along with it. Just as no football team ever won the Superbowl by playing defense, we can’t rescue our country from godless atheists by playing defense. If you want to win the game, you’ve got to have a strong offense.
The left hates President Trump for many reasons, not the least of which is that he fights.
Both President Bush’s were shrubs. Little bitty weakling shrubs. They didn’t fight back when the godless left and the media incessantly attacked them. They didn’t stand up and articulate a vision for America. One of the Bush’s (who cares which one) even sneeringly referred to the “vision thing” as something he didn’t have and apparently wasn’t interested in.
President Trump though is a fighter. In Israel, he’s been compared to King Cyrus, the ancient king who paved the way for the Hebrews to return to Israel after the 70-year Exile. Here in America, we can think of him as Paul Bunyan, chopping down the thickets of oppressive rules and regulations set up by the socialist left to strangle America. Trump fights back and he fights hard because he wants to win.
We need to join him in that fight. We need to go on the offensive and carry the fight to the left. We need to stand up with President Trump and announce that America will never be socialist.
The moment we start carrying the fight to them, the left will freak out the way they always do when someone stands in the way of their godless takeover of America. They’ll scream and shout and throw a hissy fit. They’ll call us names and accuse of us being the racist, intolerant, yada, yada, yada, big bad wolf.
It’s time for them to learn socialism is a dead letter in America.
And if they don’t like it, SAS ‘em!
