For the sake of America, please, please, Phil, do not surrender.
We have seen this scenario played out on countless occasions — the left launching a shock-and-awe gang-media assault on someone who dared to publicly challenge political correctness. The target of their wrath is bludgeoned into submission, overwhelmed with daily hit pieces filled with exaggerations, distortions and even lies about the target’s original comment and intent.
I am black. In Robertson’s GQ magazine interview, I felt no “evil or racist” intent in his comments about blacks he knew in his youth. And yet, Robertson’s intention is irrelevant to the left. Like sharks smelling blood in the water, they pounced on an opportunity to “trap” him, branding him as a racist and a hater of homosexuals for simply quoting the Bible.
The left reminds me of the pious, arrogant and elitist Pharisees in the Bible. They hated Jesus for doing good works, miracles and connecting with the people. So they launched a campaign of word games designed to “trap” Jesus into saying something that would help them brand him as a lawbreaker and blasphemer. The left employs very similar tactics.
These people are despicable. They are not about fairness or truth. They are about furthering their liberal, socialist, progressive agenda by any means necessary. So if dividing the country along racial lines helps their cause, so be it.
They say the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. So it does not take a genius to know how the left’s war on Robertson, which is really a war on traditional America, will play out.
Phase One is their tsunami of hit pieces and media pundits branding Robertson as sexist, racist and homophobic. Phase Two is to have the whole bowl of left-wing alphabet soup (NAACP, GLAD and NOW) attack him from all sides.
Phase Three is the Revs. Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson demanding they “get paid” and the offender kiss their ring. In the case of the “Duck Dynasty” controversy, master exploiter and extortionist Jackson has taken the lead, demanding A&E and Cracker Barrel meet with him.
Whether the two companies bow down to worship Jackson remains to be seen. My plea to Robertson is please, please, please, do not surrender. Do not on bended knee kiss Jackson’s ring and beg for forgiveness. It would be a mortal blow to the tremendous example he had set inspiring Americans to push back against the tyranny of political correctness.
In every incident of a slip of the tongue or misinterpreted comment by a conservative or a Republican, the left’s political correctness police bludgeon them within inches of their political life. The targeted person humbly surrenders and begs for forgiveness, all of which empowers the left, furthers their agenda and adds another notch on their gun.
To my knowledge, Robertson is the first to push back against political correctness with the support of a vast majority of the American people. So to Brother Phil, I offer a few pearls of wisdom. In case of a near-death experience, do not go to the light. As Luke Skywalker was told, “Stay away from the dark side,” and when unjustly accused of being a racist, do not bend to Sharpton or Jackson.
Phil, surrender would break our hearts. Good folks across America are praying for you.
