To The Herald-Whig:
First, let me clarify one point: I differentiate between liberals and leftists. Liberals disagree with conservatives on policy and how to run the country and, yes, they will do just about anything to get their way. But they don't hate their country.
Leftists hate America and everything it stands for. President Trump was spot on in his Kansas City speech when he said you don't give a book of matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob.
And what we are increasingly seeing on the streets of America is an angry, American-hating, Socialist, anti-constitution mob that is hijacking the liberal movement. And this attack from every direction, 24 hours a day, by the angry mob and their co-conspirators in the mainstream media is funded by Socialist and new world order advocate George Soros and the many anti-American, anti-constitution organizations Soros finances via MoveOn.org.
Perhaps the greatest danger from the leftists has been their attack on people of faith. In 1956, Congress made "In God We Trust" the official motto of the United States. Of course, that's had the anti-God crowd tied in knots. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that this action did not violate the Constitution. Congress did not make displaying the motto on public buildings mandatory, keeping the original unofficial motto "E Pluribus Unum," or "Out of Many One," which was made part of the Great Seal of the United States when the country was founded. This will probably come as a surprise to the anti-God crowd, but nowhere in the Constitution will you find the words separation of church and state, although leftists would have us believe they are there.
What the First Amendment does clearly state is that the government shall not establish a national religion, thus the term establishment clause. At the time the Constitution was written, the Founders were thinking of one state religion in particular -- the Church of England, established by King Henry VIII, which led to years of bloody conflict between Protestants and Catholics.
In other words, the Founders did not want a country that was free from religion but the freedom of its citizens to practice whatever religion they choose. It is time for good people of faith, be it Christian, Jew, Muslim or any other faith, to stand together against the angry mob.
