People who read Kathleen Parker’s continued attacks on the religious conservatives in the Republican party should see it for what it is: an ongoing effort to topple the party by destroying its foundation.
I have written about the Republican lefts’ aversion to speaking or hearing spoken anything sounding to them too religious, which is anything religious outside the tightly closed Sunday morning church door. This is nothing new. Probably most Republican Christians who have ever tried to work in their local party have felt this condescension coming from the country club set. The important thing here is to recognize and say out loud that this attitude is only different in degree from the unmasked hatred of Christians by the American far left. It originates from a false sense of superiority, an arrogance that says, “While we all know of course that scientifically there is no God, we understand that in your intellectually underdeveloped state, you still believe there is. Now that’s fine, as long as you keep it to yourself when you’re around us, lest anyone think that WE believe such utter nonsense.”
Don’t mistake my tone here for bitterness. It would only be bitter if it weren’t true. Here she is in her own words:
“Simply put: Armband religion is killing the Republican Party. And, the truth — as long as we’re setting ourselves free — is that if one were to eavesdrop on private conversations among the party intelligentsia, one would hear precisely that…
”So it has been for the Grand Old Party since the 1980s or so, as it has become increasingly beholden to an element that used to be relegated to wooden crates on street corners.
”Which is to say, the GOP has surrendered its high ground to its lowest brows. In the process the party has alienated its non-base constituents, including other people of faith (those who prefer a more private approach to worship), as well as secularists and conservative-leaning Democrats who otherwise might be tempted to cross the aisle.”
Why do the hoity-toity Rino’s put them selves to so much discomfort in order to tolerate our presence? Because the bluebloods see the rest of the party as its lowly constituents, subjects really, merely a large block of votes they must properly manipulate if they are to wield power.
Here’s the irony of it all. The far left in America is consistent about its policy on God: He doesn’t exist, therefore: anything goes. All-powerful state, OK, murder of innocents, no problem; and the one that really causes heart palpitations in the country club set: confiscation & redistribution of wealth, (stealing) checkety check! Meanwhile, liberal Republicans like Parker are pathetically INconsistent: They want the benefits of conservative philosophy; limited government, rule of law, protection of property, but they have abandoned the only foundation for that philosophy; namely that some things are morally wrong and bad, while others are morally right, and good. How can there be Absolute Moral laws in the absence of a law Giver? Without God, there can be no “Right” or “Wrong”, only human opinion backed by brute force. Our founders were quite explicit on this point.
Is Parker an example of Intelligentsia? It’s better named Stupidista.
