If one wants to destroy a building, one attacks the foundation.
All of the TV shows on demolition of old buildings show that the companies who do demolition on that scale first study the drawings to find the key pillars or girders that hold it up and that is where they strap the dynamite. They seek out the areas of the construction where the least amount of explosion will do the most damage and to determine which support structures are critical to the structural integrity of the building.In short, they look for the weak points.
Then…boom! The structure collapses and all that is left is a dusty pile of rubble.
Destruction of a nation follows the same process.
Along with foundational principles, the pillars of a nation are the beliefs and traditions that tell the story of what a country represents. These may be myths based on historical events that are not accurate to the nth degree, they may well have been embellished or altered in the telling over the years but in the telling, they reveal the aspirations and soul of the nation. Paul Revere may not be the actual person who made the midnight ride or the first Thanksgiving may or may not have included turkey and dressing but the themes that surround these events are representative of the unique American culture, individual risk and bravery for the benefit of the country and an appreciation for the blessings of God are but two examples from these traditional stories.
As much as the American left excuses lies that support what they claim is the “greater truth”, they do not give the same latitude to American traditions that go against their belief that America is inherently evil. One suce example from yesterday is this attack on Thanksgiving by Robert Jensen, a raving left lunatic (who somewhat unsurprisingly is a professor of “journalism”):
Forget all that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, today should be a day of fasting and atonement for American “sin.” That’s according to Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Jensen, known for his hard-left politics, also calls Thanksgiving a “white-supremacist holiday.”
Jensen’s opinion piece “No Thanks for Thanksgiving,” appeared on the far-left, Soros-connected website Alternet on Thanksgiving eve. In it, he wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the “European invasion of the Americas.” He went on to compare the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany. “How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” he asked.
According to Jensen, Thanksgiving is “at the heart of U.S. myth-building. “But in the United States, this reluctance to acknowledge our original sin — the genocide of indigenous people — is of special importance today,” he explained.
This is via CNS News, I won’t link to this trash – nor will I link to the communist cesspool that is Alternet – but you are free to google and go.
This is how you destroy a nation. You attack its very foundations, its identity, its idea of who it is and what it stands for.
This is just one example of how these communists are slowly dismembering who we are.
Removing God from the public sphere, arguing that religion had no role in the birth of our country, that our founders weren’t really religious men, that they didn’t base our founding principles on Judeo-Christian philosophy or that they didn’t intend for religion to be part of our daily governance is the larger effort engaged by the Godless left – and yes, I believe that people who profess to believe in God or are members of a particular religious organization that supports secular humanism are not truly secure in God.
Any “Christian” who believes that Marxism or communism is a valid answer for America’s problems is actually supporting the destruction of God in public and private life because in these human political systems, there is room for only one god – and that is government.
Thankfully, the converse to using the weak pillar to destroy a building is constructing it on a solid foundation.
Matthew, Chapter 7, verses 24-27 says:
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
The recognition of the necessity of a strong foundation is clear when Jesus spoke to Peter in Matthew Chapter 16, verse 18:
And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hades shall not prevail against it.
What the American left has done for a hundred years is to take the constitutional blueprint of our country and search for the weak pillars to strap the dynamite to. These include the raving, self-righteous, navel gazing, self-loathing, post-modernist lunatics like the aforementioned “journalism” professor who, while enjoying the bounty of this country and the freedom brought about by it, try to detonate their own little bombs to destroy our identity, to make us doubt ourselves and the good that America has done (and is doing) in the world.
Thankfully for us, in the men who crafted our founding principles, God chose rocks upon which to build our country. Our obligation as Americans is to protect that foundation.
