From time to time someone tells me how awful I am because I have dared to support Donald Trump. No doubt that is the experience of many of Trump’s supporters. How should we react? Should Trump’s supporters take Trump’s detractors seriously? Should we admit our guilt and hang our heads in shame, or should we consider the possibility that Trump’s detractors cannot tolerate a difference of opinion?
Was the attack on the Capitol Building the beginning of campaign to shame Trump’s supporters? No? Then why has the attack on the Capitol Building become such a big deal? What makes the attack on the Capitol Building unique? Well, if we stop to think about it, what makes the attack on the Capitol unique also makes it a funny thing to use to attack Trump. Compare the attack on the Capitol with all the other accusations against Trump. The attack on the Capitol Building is one of the very few “crimes” that Trump’s critics can actually “prove” happened. The critics cannot prove that Trump had anything to do with the attack on the Capitol, the crime they claim he committed, but they can prove that some people attacked the Capitol. Since all they are doing is spewing propaganda that’s real progress for Trump’s critics.
Did Donald Trump have anything to do with the attack on the Capitol Building? No.

If Trump is not guilty of anything, then why should we take his critics seriously? Unfortunately, Trump’s critics are loud, persistent, angry bullies. These angry bullies have control of the government, Big Tech, our schools and universities, and the mass media. These bullies invented the “cancel culture,” and they now have most of the tools they need to “cancel” their opponents, to render their opponents silent, jobless, and friendless. Moreover, Trump’s critics have demonstrated their willingness to use their tools to “cancel” their opponents.
Should we resist Trump’s critics and stand our ground? Why? Well, consider this column.
We are now officially less than two weeks into the Biden administration, and our new president has a list of “accomplishments” as long as your arm of which he can boast.
Bragging points include:
The degrading of women by telling them they no longer have the right to their own dignity, their own identity or even their own sports; The denial of science by appointing a man who doesn’t even believe in the science of anatomy to be our nation’s assistant secretary of health; The execution of our country’s youngest babies by celebrating the left’s genocidal desire to kill these children just minutes before they are born; The escalation of racism by embracing critical race theory’s (CRT’s) racist manipulation of race; The destruction of our nation by destroying its borders (For what nation can exist if it no longer has any borders to define its existence?);
The return to the insanity of making us dependent on our enemies for the fuel needed to heat our homes, move our cars, and run our military; The evisceration of our economy by telling people the way for them to have more money is for the government to print it rather than let them work for it; And the theft of our religious freedom by forcing all of us to bow to the godawful religion of government as God.Evangelicals ridiculously asked to apologize for supporting Trump – Washington Times
Piper goes on to express his disappointment that too many of our nation’s evangelical leaders have not stood their ground. Why would some of our nation’s evangelical leaders fail to stand their ground? There are at least a couple of reasons.
- Some have forgotten why they supported Trump. They forget that they did not support the man. They stood with him because they supported the ideals that Trump chose to stand and defend.
- Some have forgotten the price of cowardice.
William Shakespeare put it this way.
“Cowards die many times before their deaths;― William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.”
Jesus put it this way.
When our government demands from us what belongs to God, we must resist. What has Biden done that we must resist? Well, to start with Biden has issued at least 42 executive orders. Not all of them are awful, but some are.

- Clip of Biden using term ‘dictator’ to describe executive orders lacks context (apnews.com): This is a little factchecking piece. Because none of Biden’s over 40 executive orders involves a tax increase, with his astonishing use of executive orders Biden is not being dictatorial? So much for the so-called mainstream news media factchecking.
Instead of trying to defend ourselves, we must start looking at Biden’s executive orders and the legislation that Liberal Democrats want. Then we must compare what Liberal Democrats are doing and want with what the Constitution and our consciences permit. Then we must decide. Will we stand in defense of our beliefs? Will we ask God for the wisdom to fight well, or will we give up?
