Fret Not 01

This is likely to become a periodic feature, so I’m numbering these attempts to restore sanity.

1. Tommy Robinson (real name: Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon) was arrested by British police while reporting outside a courthouse. There’s a lot of noise about how the UK has gone full Orwell over this apparent repression of journalism. But Tommy Robinson is no hero; he’s been a right-wing activist for years. His arrest was due to his flat out refusal to abide by the rules for journalists in the UK about ongoing trials and the presumption of innocence. Those rules are not the same as in the US, but they have been the rules there for a very long time. Mr. Robinson was simply acting out his animus toward immigrant suspects of crime, hoping to stir some hysteria about those nasty invaders destroying British culture and life. He was trying to provoke an arrest and succeeded.

Yet there is a massive problem with child sex trafficking in the UK, and officials have struggled to keep it under wraps, because among them are the worst offenders in the land. It’s part of British elitist tradition going back centuries, though seldom mentioned. Too much noise about immigrants trafficking in children would lead to noise about prosecuting the UK elites. It’s the ultimate hypocrisy to decry child sex abuse in public officially, whipping up a Victorian public frenzy about it, while it’s considered a standard part of elite privilege. At least with the accused Muslim immigrants Robinson was trying to expose, they come from a broad middle eastern culture that says it’s no crime at all, but a basic right of Islamic manhood.

2. There is a very large and powerful Islamophobia lobby in the US. It has an awful lot of money. That’s not to say there are no problems with Muslims migrating to the US. We know from experience that relatively wealthy Muslim professionals have moved here and seldom cause trouble. It’s the refugees fleeing wars (that we cause) that are the problem. Anyone paying attention will tell you that those refugees, whenever they can amass a significant presence in any location, consistently agitate for changing laws and enforcement to favor their harsh brand of socially repressive “shariah.” It’s this rowdy rabble living in high concentrations that are the problem, but the Islamophobia lobby runs roughshod over the obvious distinctions and confuses the issue.

The solution is to limit their numbers and keep them dispersed — that’s according to Biblical Law. I’d swear that the Islamophobes’ cartoonish attacks against Muslim immigration was funded behind the scenes by someone hoping to create a false outrage, as if they are trying to polarize things intentionally, just like the ADL does with Judaism. We will have yet another theatrical side-show blaring the woes of an imaginary oppressed minority.

3. And it’s used as part of the tool-set to attack Trump. Trump is quite likely to destroy the US, but that’s his appointed mission from God. The US is under God’s wrath. Bad as it must be, things will be far less painful via Trump than the other route we could have taken, a route that would have been much closer to Armageddon. So let’s be thankful for this somewhat less painful road to the inevitable end of the US. Part of the necessary collapse of the US federal government is the ongoing hysterics about Russian influence, as if the US has never tried to influence elections and governments in nearly every country in the world. Get used to the noise and drama; something this big and this evil does not pass quietly into the night.

Don’t get wrapped up in discussions about “rule of law” and what’s reasonable under the US Constitution. Trump is a lightning rod; he’s supposed to get zapped. His enemies won’t stop voluntarily. The only way to stop this idiotic nonsense is bloodshed — someone will decide to start killing the lefties. Get ready for it; this is where things are headed and there’s no other way out. There’s no going back to honorable and vigorous debate of ideas in the public forum — as if we ever actually had such a thing. The pretense is wearing through and the substantive conflict is boiling over. Brace yourself for civil war; peaceful coexistence is no longer possible.

Addenda: I tend to rewrite stuff like this multiple times until I post it. Sometimes I miss something, as I did above when it was first posted, and I changed it because one of my regulars objected to what it seemed to be saying. I’m not rejoicing in this coming chaos and evil; I won’t be cheering on anyone. You and I should stand ready to offer a better way, but we should hardly be surprised when the majority of the world ignores us. Their path leads through bloodshed; let’s pray that it doesn’t take too much of it.

    NO. Of all things you be saying elder brother Ed; this is WAY OUT THERE and unnecessary.

    NO ONE needs to be “killing” anybody: it’s not “God’s Will” for bloodshed unless He is the One doing the killing.

    Christians are to be winning people over to God Almighty, Lord Jesus Christ through our good deeds and godly character through living our lives and not resort to wicked “offensive physical violence”.

    That is a deceptive, carnal evil heathen spirit creeping up in many WEAK-MINDED and UNLEARNED believers in IGNORANCE from not reading God’s Word (King James Version Holy Bible [KJV]).

    I hope you continue to seek *GOD’S WILL* in your teachings because sometimes I think it’s more “your opinion” on some topics and subjects without biblical basis on the Holy Scriptures.

    Other than that, hope you are well. Amen.

    Bro. Jed

    I may have worded it poorly, but it’s still what I see coming. These people have chosen the path of destruction; they shall have their destruction. A few individuals will wise up, but I’m convinced this is where it’s headed. I’m not rejoicing in any of this, but the mass of fools on both sides will hardly back down now. Had the lefties gone full communist and armed themselves, I’d write something else.

    Brother Jed, why the outrage? I read this post twice and I don’t see where Ed calls for action that would result in bloodshed, he’s pointing out what he believes may happen as God’s righteous judgement falls on the USA. None of us knows exactly how His wrath will fall but, I’m quite sure it will hit hardest on those who think they are above it. Those who hold to the notion of American exceptionalism believing we are God’s chosen instrument and must impose our will on the entire planet. It’s this arrogance that’s bringing God’s wrath.
    Also, Scripture was originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic and koine Greek, all translations into any other language are a reflection of the translators education, cultural biases and theology.
    You can find the translators introduction to the first edition of the KJV online, you should read it you might be shocked to find what they had to say about their own work and future translations. But, I caution you, it in no way supports your King James only position. I’ll add that I personally prefer the majestic style of the KJV to the modern easy reader versions.

  4. Iain – That line made me uncomfortable too.

    Although I understand that it was simply a matter of a poor choice of words, to someone who, say, was here looking for reasons to be alarmed, then ““The only way to stop this idiotic nonsense is bloodshed — someone will have to start killing the lefties.” could fit the bill nicely.

    We have to speak our truths, but I think it also behooves us to do so in a way that doesn’t make it easy for others to twist them to fit their agenda against us. These aren’t private conversations we’re having.

    Nothing wrong with what you said, Ed, since you were merely describing a scenario as you perceive it. History bears the concept out, regardless.

    If anything, it should be mentioned more, since most folks are insulated from the reality of the situation. We’re not here to make friends with everyone; you don’t owe self-censorship to a non-captive audience.

    As I noted in my addenda, this was a clear case of an incomplete editing job that left things sounding different from what I intended. Jed spotted it and I corrected it; I wasn’t trying to self-censor or accommodate someone’s discomfort.

    Truly, I appreciate all the support from all angles, folks.
