Most thinking Americans understand that there is a deep divide in America. The Senate was evenly divided for the 2021-2022 session and will be almost evenly divided for the 2023-2024 session. The House of Representatives is almost as evenly divided with a difference of eight or ten with Democrats in the majority for the 2021-2022 session and Republicans in the majority for the 2023-2024 session.
people believe that the division was caused by Donald Trump or politics in
general. Last Sunday on his program “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Fox News host
Mark Levin argued that the cause of the division goes much deeper than any
conservatives understand. According to Levin, the core of the problem is the
control that liberals have over the education, media, and entertainment – “the
main influencers of culture.” Now that the leftists have control of those three
influencers, they are determined to destroy or control “the two other major
pillars of society – the church and the nuclear family.” USAAnews.com reported on Levin’s comments.
“The reason this nation is so thoroughly
divided is we’re divided along those who really believe in the founding
principles of our country – liberty, and when you look at the Bill of Rights,
the issues related there – and those who want to change the country into
something that is, well for many of us, horrific,” Levin added.
“That’s the battle that’s going on, and it
goes well beyond politics, it goes right to the heart of the culture and so
forth,” he said.
based his statements on the writings of Thomas Sowell in his 2010 book, “Dismantling
America.” Sowell argued that the division started with the election of Barack
Obama in 2008. Obama was “the most far-left president in U.S. history” before
Biden, but his election was decades in coming.
“What that means is that, even if we
somehow manage to survive this man’s reckless economic policies at home and his
potentially fatal foreign policy actions and inactions,” Sowell wrote at the
time, “the gullibility and fecklessness of those voters who put him in the
White House will still be there to be exploited by the next master of glib
demagoguery and emotional images, who can lead us into another vortex of
dangers, from which there is no guarantee that we will emerge as a free people
or even as a viable society.”
argued – and I agree – that Obama and the Democrats have been pushing for years
to move America towards philosophical Marxism. He noted that Chuck Schumer,
Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez never mention “property
rights or individual liberty,” but they often mention “class warfare or racial
Obama before him, Biden often uses “the language of class warfare” in his
speeches. He says that “the wealthy must be made to pay their ‘fair share’ of
taxes,’ though they have paid the lion’s share of federal income tax revenue
The non-partisan Tax Foundation found in
2019 (the most recent statistics available), with the tax rates that are still
in place now, the top 10 percent of wage earners (those making approximately
$155,000 or more per year) paid over 70 percent of all income tax revenues
collected, while the bottom 50 percent (those making about $44,000 or less)
paid just 3.1 percent.
cited several ways that “cultural Marxists” are seeking to take total control
of America. One way is “the destruction of real education” where we “see the
effort to say that parents have no say in education” and where the education
union members believe that they have “the right to control your children and
their minds as parents do.” According to Levin, Marxism seeks to replace “the
values of the family … with a common social education.”
“It’s intent [is] to destroy the nuclear
family, because in order to indoctrinate your children as actors for the state
you have got to destroy the family. The greatest obstacles to advancing this
so-called nirvana or paradise or utopia, is the family and faith,” Levin said.
and other believe that the recently passed “Respect for Marriage Act” was
misnamed and should have been called the war on religion act because the goal
of the new law is “to prevent religious institutions [Jewish, Christian,
Muslim] from teaching their faith in various formats, hospitals, schools, think
tanks and so forth – and to create federal crimes, so the federal government
can impose its will.”
is the reason by Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) tried to amend the law. He sought to
protect “faith-based organization and business owners who believe in traditional
marriage from being placed in greater legal jeopardy” by the new law. Leftists
are trying to deconstruct the American culture and replace it with Marxism, and
there are too many Americans who are still voting for Democrats! They are the
same people who condemn conservatives who are battling to save the Republic and
our American way of life.
“We’re a great nation that represents the
unalienable rights of the individual, that rights come from God, that there is
a natural law, a right and a wrong, a good and an evil and that all our rights
in the law don’t come from the present-day politicians and their supposed
wisdom,” Levin said.
to Levin, establishment Republicans “are looking for easy answers,” while “Americans
who support time-tested traditional values are losing elections.” He said that
too many people do not “understand the depths of the problem” and do not “want
to address it.” He added that “their idea of successful politics is to meet
halfway the party that is hell-bent on destroying the country.”
I agree with Levin that Marxists are trying to destroy our Constitution and America by destroying religion and the nuclear family. All Christians should understand that any individual or organization that is anti-family is also anti-Christ. Marriage and the family are instituted by God for the benefit of His children, and we will be held accountable by God for how well we protect them.
