In 2008, America elected a bi-racial candidate to the highest office in the land. According to interviews and studies, not only did people embrace the message of “Hope and Change,” but some voted for President Obama to prove they weren’t racist. Granted, racism still exists in America…the kind pitting one skin color against another, but the Left also utilizes the term “racist” when people oppose the President’s policies. In fact, it becomes the rallying cry of the Left when the opposing ideology presents logical arguments and there’s no way to invalidate the concerns raised. Take for instance Oprah Winfrey.
In a recent trip to Europe, the BBC sat down with the billionaire media mogul. Besides discussing her role in the new movie “The Butler,” she addressed her perceived problems of racism still today. In regards to the President and his rising opposition, she said,
‘I think there’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs,’ she said. ‘And that occurs in some cases … because he’s African American. There’s no question about that. And it’s the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody’s thinking.’
Oprah doesn’t get it. The swelling Presidential opposition isn’t related to his skin color but to the implementation of policies destined to drive an exceptional America to her knees. That’s why the outrage. That’s why the determined efforts to overturn legislation like Obamacare. The President said on multiple occasions,
“If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it.”
However, five million Americans opened their mailboxes to find correspondence announcing their plans would no longer be offered in January 2014. The Obamacare website went live on October 1st and has crashed multiple times since. Blaming the shear numbers overloading the system, the Administration’s working frantically to work out the bugs before the end of November. If the Government fails at creating a working website, how can we trust the current Administration to shoulder the responsibility of the nation’s healthcare?
Miss Oprah, the Obamacare debacle is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The President supports abortion on demand and even voted three times to allow infanticide while serving in the Illinois State House. While addressing a pro-abortion rally, he implored God to bless Planned Parenthood. His ideology “evolved” about same sex marriage. He whispered to Putin in an open microphone faux pas,
“I’ll have more flexibility in a second term.”
He feigns ignorance over the NSA and IRS overreaches. He ignored the cries for help as an American ambassador and three other American heroes perished on foreign soil. He supports terrorist organizations responsible for the deaths of multitudes of Christians in Middle Eastern Countries. And the list grows daily.
So, Miss Oprah, racism does not drive Americans to protest the Presidential office, but the policies that threaten the very freedoms brave men and women fight for abroad.
In actuality, driving America to her knees counters the swelling tide of evil proliferated by an Administration hell-bent on propagating ideologies in direct opposition to a Holy God. The Bible teaches:
“If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, will forgive their sin and heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14
May God bless America…not Planned Parenthood. (Asking God to do that ain’t racist.)
