No longer the cham­pion of the av­er­age man

Demo­cratic Party politi­cians stand for noth­ing but them­selves

The Washington Times Daily - - OPINION - By Everett Piper Everett Piper, pres­i­dent of Ok­la­homa Wes­leyan Uni­ver­sity, is the au­thor of “Not A Day Care: The Dev­as­tat­ing Con­se­quences of Aban­don­ing Truth” (Reg­n­ery 2017).

If you had any doubt, you can clearly set it aside. It’s now set in stone. The Demo­cratic Party has of­fi­cially be­come the anti-Con­sti­tu­tion, an­tichild, anti-cap­i­tal­ism, anti-Semitic, anti-black, anti-His­panic, anti-Asian, anti-woman and anti-Chris­tian party of Amer­i­can pol­i­tics. No longer does the party of An­drew Jack­son, John F. Kennedy and Lyn­don B. John­son even pre­tend to be the cham­pion of the av­er­age man. No longer is this the party of the work­ing class. No longer do Democrats stand for low un­em­ploy­ment, so­cial equal­ity, up­ward mo­bil­ity, the blue-col­lar fam­ily, cross-cul­tural suc­cess and a color-blind so­ci­ety. Proof? Look no fur­ther than the mon­tage of pho­tos of those sit­ting in the cham­ber of our House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives dur­ing this past Tues­day’s State of the Union ad­dress. Look no fur­ther than those sit­ting all dressed in white; those sit­ting with smug smiles and self-right­eous glares; those sit­ting and sit­ting and sit­ting; those sit­ting while oth­ers stand.

What you see is a group of people who refuse to stand for any­thing but them­selves.

Oh, yes, they stood in rau­cous self-con­grat­u­la­tion for their power, their priv­i­lege, their vic­tory, their su­pe­ri­or­ity and their pho­toop. But they re­fused to stand for much of any­thing else.

These are the people who re­fused to stand for his­toric lows in un­em­ploy­ment for blacks, His­pan­ics and Asians.

These are the people who re­fused to stand for record highs in our work­force and record lows for in­fla­tion.

These are the people who re­fused to stand against the degra­da­tion of jobs for Amer­ica’s work­ing mid­dle class.

These are the people who re­fused to stand against so­cial­ism and the bar­baric eco­nomic mod­els of Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea.

These are the people who re­fused to stand against the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, Ha­mas and Hezbol­lah and their wan­ton butch­ery of in­no­cent civil­ians.

These are the people who re­fused to stand against anti-Semitism, Jew bait­ing and Is­lam’s call for the an­ni­hi­la­tion of Is­rael, its women, its chil­dren, its fa­thers and its moth­ers.

These are the people who re­fused to stand against hu­man traf­fick­ing, mod­ern day slav­ery and the evils of us­ing our na­tion’s open bor­ders to trans­port young boys and girls back and forth as sex­ual com­modi­ties.

These are the people who pro­mote vic­tim­iza­tion, vengeance and vice while they smirk in the face of virtue.

These are the people who refuse to de­fend the rights of ev­ery­day Chris­tians to sim­ply prac­tice their faith in the pub­lic square with­out fear of govern­ment penalty or reprisal.

These are the people who pro­tect them­selves be­hind the walls of their govern­ment of­fices and gated com­mu­ni­ties while they lec­ture all the rest of us about the evils of build­ing walls to pro­tect our own com­mu­ni­ties and our own kids.

These are the people who stand with armed guards while they refuse to stand for our right to bear arms. These are the people who have turned clas­si­cally “lib­eral” ed­u­ca­tion into lit­tle more than PC in­doc­tri­na­tion; people who have stolen the in­no­cence of our chil­dren; people who shame­lessly ex­per­i­ment on our 5-year-olds in their lab­o­ra­to­ries of sex­ual flu­id­ity and iden­tity pol­i­tics; people who use our schools to brain­wash our na­tion’s youth while us­ing our courts to crim­i­nal­ize any par­ent who then seeks coun­sel­ing to cor­rect the class­room’s cor­rup­tion of their child’s heart, mind and soul.

These are the people who sit silent in the face of all the above. They do not stand and cel­e­brate what is good. They do not con­demn what is evil. They sit.

These are people who can­not be trusted. They do not and will not honor and de­fend our Con­sti­tu­tion or our coun­try. They ma­lign our ex­cep­tion­al­ism and com­pro­mise our sovereignty. They besmirch our flag and mock our motto. The only god in whom they trust is the one they see in the mir­ror. Their only al­le­giance is to oli­garchy. Their only pledge is to them­selves.

They cam­paign for a di­vided coun­try rather than a United States. They preach color over char­ac­ter and in­ter­sec­tion­al­ity over in­de­pen­dence. Their goal is ret­ri­bu­tion rather than re­spon­si­bil­ity. They print money and pan­der to im­moral­ity. They cel­e­brate the ob­jec­ti­fi­ca­tion of chil­dren and di­min­ish the ob­jec­tive re­al­ity of women. They de­fend killing ba­bies be­fore and even af­ter they’re born. They praise the bru­tal­ity of for­eign despots while they de­fame the legacy of our na­tion’s fa­thers.

Truth is for­eign to these people. They traf­fic in de­cep­tion.

They are a people who boo God at their con­ven­tions and wor­ship govern­ment in their col­leges, their courts and their cam­paigns. They dis­par­age our repub­lic. They seek not to “keep it” but to de­fame it.

With power in the hands of people such as this, our na­tion is lost.

How can any faith­ful Chris­tian vote for these people or for this party? Answer: You can’t.

End­note: Tom Coburn, Ben Shapiro, Ben Sasse, Allen West and Mark Levin have all called upon us to use Ar­ti­cle 5 of our Con­sti­tu­tion to stop these people from de­stroy­ing what’s left of our free repub­lic. They’re right. The foxes are in the hen­house and we’re all go­ing to be had for lunch if we don’t use the “weapon” our Founders be­queathed us for pro­tec­tion.
