Actually, there were fact-checkers way back then. They were the various priests and orders of the Catholic Church. And, much like the modern era’s inquisitors of the leftists’ self-proclaimed Magisterium, they brooked no dissent or deviation from the orthodoxy that they had created. Thankfully, so far, the Left has settled for censorship and destruction of property, whereas the Church put heretics down, often brutally and only after extensive physical torment.
In truth though, the only functional difference between the fact-checkers of the past and the ones of today is how their taskmasters respond to findings of heretical “misinformation.”
Yes, there are some very simple, yet very stark and fundamental, doctrinal differences between the Obama Regime and President Trump’s Administration when it comes to overall foreign policy and America’s place in the world at large. We had the Obama Doctrine, which was essentially one of conciliation, self-deprecation, and one long string of apologies to the world at large. Now we have the Trump Doctrine, which seems to one of standing strong, and alone if needs be, and warning our enemies and opponents that they’ll be sorry if they cross America.
Obviously, the differences between the two doctrines is stark. They’re almost polar opposites and quite antithetical to each other. Hence, one coming in immediately upon the other’s being over is glaring to see and jarring to experience. That, however, is not the seminal point of this article.
Please realize that the title of this post, “Doctrinal Differences,” is quite deliberate. This is not a purely political or geopolitical difference. It’s more of a difference in sincerely held beliefs, of particular and differing faiths in what is the right way forward. quite literally, it is a sectarian schism.
That’s very important to realize and internalize because there’s another, far harsher and more potentially dangerous way to describe doctrinal differences – heresy. And any of us who study today’s world and/or history know what happens to heretics…
Liberals and Progressives just love to preach about the absolute need for tolerance. Yet, America’s ranting and raving domestic enemies neither show any understanding of that term or exhibit it towards those who fail to live up to every single argument of their doctrine and dogma.
Tolerance is the ability or willingness to allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with, with forbearance. What the Liberals and Progressives seek is endorsement, aid, and normalization of certain things that they have decided are protected traits. They do not seek any form of forbearance; they seek overt and explicit approval of that which normative, American society does not necessarily agree with.
To borrow the catchphrase of their token, let me be clear – there is little if any difference between the Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders and ISIS, the Taliban, or Boko Haram. They may differ in exact beliefs and use somewhat different specific methods but they share a common level and extent of extremism and orthodoxy. When it comes down to it, there’s not a lot of difference between a knife, an AK-47, or an IED and paper terrorism and lawfare. In all cases it is the attempt to destroy those who beliefs are not deemed allowable.
The Magisterium of the Warmist faith have- and make great use of their Inquisition.Â Woe betide the scientist who strays from orthodoxy and into climate heresy. While the Inquisitions tools are different than they were, they are no less terrifying to those who have failed to appreciate and follow the AGW doctrine as it is set forth for them.
The Climate Change Inquisition Brooks No Heresy
For those souls who do not accept the incontrovertible Word of Mann, there is nothing but confinement and pain until such time as the recant and return to the Global Warming flock.
For those who don’t already know, Eppure si raffredda is Italian for “But it cools” which is a riff upon- and homage to Galileo Galilei’s utterance of, “Eppur si muove” – But yet it moves – after after his being forced to recant that the earth moves around the sun by the Inquisition.
All the religions of mankind have warned against false prophets, ones who cloak themselves in the faith but seek to sow the seeds of heresy. But such mendacious criminals, enemies of the body of the people, are not limited to formal religions; they are also present in nations and national identity and character.
President Obama is surely on these pernicious and traitorous filth. He preaches a false an anti-American doctrine and claims it to be orthodoxy.
Being an American is not a matter of blood or birth, it’s a matter of faith.
Like all false prophets, Obama’s words sound good at face value and, without context, they seem true because they are true. Being American is not a matter of blood or birth, it’s a matter of faith, of beliefs, of character. There are very many who, while born and raised within the glory of America’s borders and culture, are not Americans because they do not have American beliefs or American character.
But President Obama, like all of his sort, chose to twist and corrupt this truth in order to further his own agenda instead of furthering the good of America and Americans.
It’s somewhat ironic that Obama used a phrase nearly identical to one I’ve used repeatedly – and one that so many of his followers have complained about my using.
I wonder how those Liberals who’ve complain about my defining being American by other than blood and birth will respond to their Messiah doing the same.
In President Obama’s cult beliefs that “faith” he speaks of must have nothing to do with America’s characters because he pronounced his words in the context of ranting against any state legislation that seeks to enforce immigration policy. The filthy Traitor-in-Chief also mouthed words to the effect that we shouldn’t strive to secure our borders, but to grant amnesty to the illegal immigrants and a “path to citizenship” instead.
We must all beware false prophets and their cult followers – and treat them when we encounter them fully and exactly as they deserve – without mercy or restraint.
