DON’T BE NAIVE

If you think what happened in South Africa’s fight against apartheid, cannot happen here, remember MLK, JFK.

If you think what happened in Nazi Germany cannot happen here, just listen to  Ahmadinejad  , as you look at what is going on in the middle east!

We were once labeled “the ugly Americans.”  If you think that the U.S. and Israel are not still hated, are not the enemy of Muslims, … think again.

If you think Hitler, was an anomaly, or that Uganda’s Edie Amin Dada, or Cambodia’s Pol Pot, or China’s Mao, or the USSR’s Stalin, or Cuba’s Che, then you have some studying to do.   If you think that all people are basically good, that these things cannot happen here, ….. you’re naive.

If you think that Michelle Obama’s being friends with Farrakhan, the man who calls the white man the devil ….. is coincidence, …. then you know little about black racism.   If you think Holder’s refusal to prosecute the New Black Panther Party ….. that President Obama’s calling the police “stupid”, was a slip of the tongue, wake up!

If you think hate is not the motivation, behind these historical facts, if you think it cannot happen here, open your eyes.   If you think Obama cannot be used by those who hate America and bring her down, think again!   If you think his Kenyan Grandfather’s torture by the Brits, had nothing to do with his having returned the bust of Winston Churchill to England, you need to open your mind.

If you think that those “behind the curtain” will not use food as a weapon, just do nothing, and watch.   But be prepared to explain to those you love, those who depend upon you, why your apathy, why your distraction, was OK.

If you think these figures below, are not intentional, you are mistaken!   There are other kinds of slavery …. There are other kinds of terror ….    There are other kinds of violence.   Though these are dated figures, do not trust those who would take our freedoms!

After two years of Obama…  Here’s your change:

Just take this last item:  In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation’s history..  Over 27 times as fast.  Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane. 27 times faster, it would be doing  7,555 MPH!

About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
