THE TOP TEN HEROES OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY — PART 2

In the last post in this series, THE TOP TEN HEROES OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY — PART 1 – Citizen Tom, we focused on ordinary citizens. Here we speak of those among us who lead us. That is, significant numbers of people, especially those who call themselves Democrats, follow these people.

  1. Cowardly capitalists (the fearful rich): Who are the cowardly capitalists? What distinguishes a cowardly capitalist from a crony capitalist? It can be hard to tell. Perhaps it is those who reverse their position under pressure, Liberals pressure corporations into Georgia boycotts (nypost.com). Of course, there is nothing wrong with Georgia’s new law except the lies being told about it (see 21 Black Leaders Denounce the Left’s Lies About Georgia Election Law (dailysignal.com) and Conservative Clergy of Color Demands Biden, Abrams, ‘Stop Lying’ About Georgia Voting Law by Connor McNulty (townhall.com)). But the coward fears only for himself, not for someone else.
  2. Phony philosophers (academics and clergy): Who are the phony philosophers? What distinguishes a genuine philosopher from a phony philosopher? Instead of glorifying God, the phony philosopher glorifies himself and the people he wants to listen to him. Consider that image at the top of this post. Don’t we all seek power and wealth? How do we achieve earthly power? Instead of speaking the truth, the phony philosopher tells people what they want to hear, that we can have what we want if we just adopt the right system. Is that not what men like Karl Marx (Karl Marx Definition (investopedia.com)) and the Prophet Muhammad (Muhammad – Biography according to the Islamic tradition | Britannica) promised? Did they not ask people to believe we can get everything we want if we just adopt some system that makes “other people,” those who do not belong to our mob, do the “right thing”? Today phony philosophers still urge us to form mobs to dispossess others of their lives, liberty, and property. Then, ironically, they accuse their opponents of “tribalism.” Using social justice and equity to justify themselves, we see both academics and clergymen peddling nonsense like Socialism, Multiculturalism, racism (under the guise of Critical Race Theory) and transgenderism.
  3. Crony mass media (“news” and “art”): Supposedly, both journalists and artists practice their crafts to spread the truth. In reality, few if any of us are wholly devoted to the truth. At best, we must pray for the wisdom to understand as much of the truth as we can. At worst, some men sell their souls and become propagandists. It is a fact that the mass media is big business (see The World’s Top Media Companies (investopedia.com), Opinion | The Incredible Belief That ,Corporate Ownership Does Not Influence Media Content (commondreams.org), and These 15 Billionaires Own America’s News Media Companies (forbes.com)). The mass media does not exist for our sake; it exists to make money for its owners. That includes the news organizations these big companies own. Hence, we constantly must wonder about the hidden agenda of the people who own the mass media (see Propaganda, Trust, and the Media (americanthinker.com) and Has China Compromised Every Major Mainstream Media Entity? (thefederalist.com)). Yet, naively, most people get their news from one biased source: Americans’ main sources for political news vary by party and age | Pew Research Center. That just encourages these people to lie to us.
  4. Crony Capitalists (the greedy rich): What does it take to become hugely wealthy? High moral standards? Well, it is possible that someone with high moral standards can become wealthy, but high moral standards are hardly a requirement. Good judgement, good judgement in the sense that they well understand what misdeeds they can get away with, will suffice. That is the moral of this parable. God will not trust the dishonest with His riches, but that is not true of the children of this world.

Luke 16:1-8 Good News Translation

16 Jesus said to his disciples, “There was once a rich man who had a servant who managed his property. The rich man was told that the manager was wasting his master’s money, so he called him in and said, ‘What is this I hear about you? Turn in a complete account of your handling of my property, because you cannot be my manager any longer.’ The servant said to himself, ‘My master is going to dismiss me from my job. What shall I do? I am not strong enough to dig ditches, and I am ashamed to beg. Now I know what I will do! Then when my job is gone, I shall have friends who will welcome me in their homes.’ So he called in all the people who were in debt to his master. He asked the first one, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ ‘One hundred barrels of olive oil,’ he answered. ‘Here is your account,’ the manager told him; ‘sit down and write fifty.’ Then he asked another one, ‘And you—how much do you owe?’ ‘A thousand bushels of wheat,’ he answered. ‘Here is your account,’ the manager told him; ‘write eight hundred.’ As a result the master of this dishonest manager praised him for doing such a shrewd thing; because the people of this world are much more shrewd in handling their affairs than the people who belong to the light.”

  1. Lying Leaders (demagogues, opportunists, and tempters): When we choose leaders, we give them the power to manage our lives, our liberty, and our property. Do we want a dishonest managers wise in the ways of this world? Or do we want leaders who belong to the light? Do we want leaders who want to serve us honestly? Consider that rich man, the master of that dishonest manager in the parable above (Luke 16:1-8). After that rich man sarcastically praised his servant for the way he had settled accounts, do you think that rich man kept that dishonest manager in his employ, or do you think he immediately kicked him out the door? It is one thing to admire the crooked for their audacity and cleverness. It is an entirely different thing to trust them with anyone or anything of value. It is well to understand the dishonest; it is self-destructive to trust a dishonest men with our lives, liberty, and property. So, why would we do so?

Consider the definition below.

confidence man, con man, con artist (noun)

a swindler who exploits the confidence of his victim

What does confidence man mean? (definitions.net)

When we do not choose our leaders carefully — when we give our trust to people who have not rightly earned our trust — instead of good leadership, we become the victims of confidence men.
