The Left’s Religious War Against America

The Left’s Religious War Against America, by Daniel Greenfield.

69% of progressives are ashamed to be Americans, but 63% are proud of their political ideology instead. The majority don’t attend religious services, but 73% list politics as their preoccupation.

Religiously unaffiliated voters are the most excited about attending political rallies and marches. …

Political participation gives their lives meaning. It offers them the opportunity to save the world. Republicans are not just political opponents, but religious foes who threaten the planet’s survival.

And what do their political beliefs tell them about the traditional great questions answered by religion?

86% believe that people’s outcomes are beyond their control. 75% believe that outcomes are caused by luck and circumstance. 94% are convinced that government should take more responsibility for people.

They believe that life is arbitrary and meaningless, except for the order imposed by government. …

The left tells Americans that it is a grass roots movement, when it’s actually an organized infrastructure of groups funded by billionaires through a secretive and complex methodology that makes the mob look honest. It tells Americans that the media is a non-partisan public service, when it’s actually the communications arm of the left. But, most of all, it tells Americans that it’s the majority. And that’s a lie. …

Every time the left loses an election, its big lie totters. If the left truly represents the majority of Americans, why are so many Republicans in office? The answer invariably involves conspiracy theories. Racist Republicans disenfranchise minority voters. The Russians hacked our election. Fake news spread on Facebook rigged the election. The Supreme Court rigged the election. Someone stole the votes. …

Republicans can lose an election and still believe that the majority is on their side. The left lacks that equanimity because it knows that it is a minority faking its majority status with fake news.

Elections are not an exercise in politics for them. No more than they are for their Muslim Brotherhood allies. They are referendums on their religion. They are the arbiters of their convictions and their faith. …

The fundamental creed of the left is that America is inherently evil. It can only be redeemed by the rule of the left. Its struggles for power are not just partisan contests, but a struggle against evil.

America is an oppressive imperialist system of slaves and nuclear bombers, whose industries are destroying the planet, whose patriarchy has raped every other woman in the country, and whose racism is killing black children every day. This is what the left believes. Is it any wonder that it hates America?

And is it any wonder that the left cannot be compromised, appeased or reasoned with?
