Jesus Would Not Approve of Cancel Culture — Opinion

So true.

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” — John 8:12

A Twitter follower wrote me saying, I am amazed at the state of our country. Each day I hear about something so strange, I wonder if it is real. Now, what he was talking about is the strange events that are happening to our country. Events so illogical, they make you think and wonder, now why would they do that?

The cancel culture mob has emerged as a driving force in American life. A dark and marauding group that seeks to eliminate any and all that disagree. American’s are losing their jobs, statues are tumbling, and corporations are giving in, afraid of backlash. Freedom is under attack.

Trending: Biden Said He Received Full Scholarship, Graduated Top of His Law School Class — He Lied

University of Chicago’s famed economist Harald Uhlig recently came under attack after saying; Don’t defund the police, train them better. Uhlig was placed on leave after a blistering attack by the cancel culture mob.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

“Reason Magazine” senior editor, Robby Soave, came to Uhlig’s defense by saying; There was nothing discriminatory in what he said, because he has some different views from the protesters, he must be a racist.

In turns out Uhlig views were right. Violent crime is remarkably up. In Milwaukee, crime is up 132%. New York, as well is seeing crime increase to levels not seen since 1997, double the previous year. And this is not the exception, but has become the norm. Police funding is being reduced and with the low morale in many of our police departments throughout our country has caused this increase. Some will tell you otherwise, but they aren’t talking to law enforcement officials.

Likewise, the cancel culture mob has begun destroying statutes. In fact, a Fredrick Douglas statue was recently torn down. Why?, no one really knows. But it canceled a great African American leader from our past.

Aunt Jemima has been erased by the cancel culture mob, to the dismay of her family and many black leaders. It seems Quaker Oats, who benefited from Aunt Jemima was too quick to listen to the cancel mob. Afraid of backlash they canceled her. In doing so, they erased her efforts as the co-founder of the largest church in America, as of 1900. They eliminated the first black corporate spokespeople and one of the first female spokespeople as well. They canceled her years of hard work as one of the early civil right activist.

In Seattle, all the white city employees have been gathered together to learn how to get rid of their Whiteness and are being instructed that they have all participated in some form of racism. In fact, white employees where instructed to practice self-talk that affirms their complicity in racism. Making me wonder, who decided all white people are racist? And isn’t that assumption in itself racist?

David Shor, an analyst from Civis Analytics, stated in a report; riots alienate voters. For this he was fired. Even though his analysis is supported by facts.

A Boeing executive was even forced out for opposing women’s service in the military—30 years ago. A thought he long ago changed.

The new dark and angry totalitarians called the cancel culture mob, demand that no one criticize their view of the world. Otherwise they will attack.

We all need to become better at thinking things through, instead of quickly resorting to cancelling. If this is our new way of solving problems, we will all eventually be cancelled. No group or community is free from mistakes and all have fallen short.

Instead we should build on what’s good and not resort to quick fixes like cancelling. Despite our flaws, we are a country that generally wants to do the right thing. And the rest of the world knows this, despite what we might read. Every year the most desired country to immigrate to is the United States. In fact, in 2017, over one million people immigrated, by far the largest amount for any country.

There are very clear abuses that go on in our country and they need to stop. But cancelling and portraying entire groups based on some individual actions will not solve the problem. Rather, we should follow Jesus and his lessons. And this is why Jesus said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

A simple message to live life with Jesus in mind. He is the light of the world. For us all to work a little harder to see the good in all people. To not jump to quick solutions that fail to recognize all the facts. Jesus wants us to love and not blame. It is too easy to curse the darkness, but much harder to light a candle. And this is where we all should get better.

We must lift up the many great people from all walks of life that have lifted up our country. Instead of cancelling and living darkly, we need to become followers of the light. Looking for those who do good. We should honor our heroes more widely, those who make us great. We need to gather up the great doers of good and let them lead. Not this angry mob that trolls the internet to seek people to cancel.

In my book Jesus & Co., I write that Jesus wants us to walk in light of love and not the darkness of judging others. Jesus wants us to listen to learn and not prepare our next attack.

Jesus wants us to love and forgive. As Jesus did when he went to the Cross.

Don’t worry, Jesus won’t get cancelled!

Biden: ‘200 Million People’ Will Be Dead From COVID By the Time I Finish This Speech [Watch]

This has to be a parody! Come on, man!

At this point, there are no words to describe Joe Biden anymore. The guy is just gone. How a person can vote for him in November literally makes zero sense. He’s not fit to run a hot dog stand, at this point. How can somebody get words mixed up so badly even when reading from a teleprompter!? According to the former VP, 200 mill…LOL, I can’t even type the sentence without laughing. Just check this out, via The Daily Wire: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden struggled during a speech on Sunday, falsely claiming that estimates indicated that there would be 200 million people dead from COVID-19 by the time he was finished talking. WATCH: https://twitter.com/ClayTravis/status/1307804630680731648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307804630680731648%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-its-estimated-that-200-million-people-will-be-dead-from-covid-19-by-end-of-my-speech Biden did not correct himself but, several minutes later, said, “Like I said, as I speak, we’re probably passing 200,000 deaths lost to this virus.” Imagine having to go four years of hearing the most powerful man in the entire world speaking Klingon, or in tongues, or whatever it is that Joe does. Half of the time, it’s just not even English. If Saturday Night Live played it down the middle, there would probably be some pretty funny skits mocking Joe. The already twice-failed presidential candidate had another classic speaking blunder, recently.

AOC: We Have to Consider Impeaching Trump or Bill Barr to Prevent SCOTUS Confirmation

WOWOWOW!!

Why did the Republican-controlled Senate delay a floor vote for Barack Obama’s SCOTUS pick back in 2016 after the death of Antonin Scalia? Because Obama was a lame-duck; on his way out of office. It only made sense to have the next president decide. President Trump is not a lame-duck, considering he can still win a second term. Therefore, it makes sense for the GOP-controlled Senate to push through 45’s nominee. But Dems don’t exactly see things that way. And their hypocrisy will be exposed below in just a few minutes. First, check out AOC – from TDW: Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during a press conference on Sunday that Democrats must be open to all options in their attempts to stop President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from filling the Supreme Court seat that was vacated last week.
