The history of ancient Rome is laden with legendary history and folklore. No figure cuts as significant a swat as the pompous, despot Emperor Nero. It seems certain that during his reign he was determined to erase Christianity from the face of the earth.
Nero uniquely set a pattern for dealing with growing opposition to his murderous rule. With the realization of Jesus’ resurrection and that the Jesus movement was gaining strength, Nero’s next cunning strategy was viciously to attack the followers of Jesus.
In our present day culture, we are witnessing the rise of the thuggery and brutishness of Nero-types who, since they have not been able to thwart the rise of President Trump and his on-going agenda, their sinister strategy now is to attempt to suppress his followers.
As of recently, the Brietbart news organization has logged 500 instances of various attacks on members of the Trump administration, his family, his organization and, of course, his followers. Everything from hateful attacks on his youthful son, daughter, and wife, to brutes physically attacking blacks, elderly, and teen-agers half their size and age for wearing MAGA gear, to Trump associates shopping for groceries, books, gas, or dining in restaurants, to the unspeakable online harassment of the mother of a cancer survivor for thanking Eric Trump for his donation of $16 million to the St. Jude Hospital.
Breitbart recent headlines also suggest that Senator Klobuchar of Minnesota insinuates that Trump supporters, by association, fail decency and patriotism checks. These innuendoes mimic Mrs. Clinton’s “deplorables,” and Joe Biden’s “dregs” slurs of President Trump’s followers. Franklin Graham was suspended on charges of “hate speech” by Facebook for a two-year-old post in support of North Carolina’s House Bill 2 that mandated that people use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex. https://conservativepost.com/franklin-graham-suspended-by-facebook-blocked-for-his-biblical-hate-speech/
Trump supporters have been kicked, punched, and spat upon. This extreme, orgiastic, unrestrained behavior favoring the Democrat/ Liberal/ Socialist segment of American politics is documented enough to show that their main line leaders such as Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Tim Kaine, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Andrew Cuomo, and countless others might arguably take credit for this behavior with their incendiary calls to “take it to the streets,” with “in their face” “resistance” against the present administration, its citizen voters and followers, police enforcement, ranking office holders and their families, border patrol agents, and even against religious and conservative thought and leaders. They virtually ignore the disruptive tactics of such terror groups like the masked and hooded Antifa and MS-13, and the often militant Black Lives Matter.
It is not unrealistic to suggest that this relentless agitation leads to an alarming increase in deranged behavior and harassment of American citizens whose views and opinions these liberal forces cannot abide. Is it unrealistic to consider that this stream of unending agitation through the megaphone of the biased media arouses individuals and incites them to act out their own form of “in your face” and “take it to the streets” “resistance” to vent their frustrations, hatred, and manic impulses on any of society’s targets?
Recently, this persistent public agitation nearly resulted in a horrific slaughter as a heartless driver slammed his vehicle into a Trump voter registration tent in the parking lot of a shopping center narrowly missing six volunteer workers. The suspect allegedly stopped his vehicle to get out to video-record his damage and thrust his middle finger in the air in defiance at the stunned volunteers before driving off, according to FOX 30 of Jacksonville. Mainstream Media coverage has been lukewarm, at best, if at all. https://www.foxnews.com/us/driver-in-florida-plows-into-gop-voter-registration-tent-nearly-hitting-6-volunteers-reports?fbclid=IwAR04Cho_aMMsd0NwH9K-HVUTkNzMhF-uD2PhEk4wfxTPIfboNxpIZTKsiTs
These current reactionary agitators that include not only the President’s political opposition but academia, the arts and entertainment industry, the mendacious media and prodigal press who portray themselves as some kind of ennobled, patriotic “resistance,” are implicitly, by definition, fomenting rebellion in its raw and ugly form. They refuse to acknowledge that the President won his office by all legal and necessary lawful means. They refuse to acknowledge that he is leading the country in its wellbeing successfully in every category and index, mostly claiming the opposite. They demonize his efforts to protect and enforce the security of our nation.
In their selfishness and rage, their behavior can be characterized as rejection of all authority – the rule of law, law enforcement, any moral, religious, or expert opinion, logic itself, voter and legal judicial outcomes, universal and traditional heritage, and even a renunciation of true justice. Their actions can only be viewed as an anarchist, hostile indifference to the looming, destructive impact on our societal harmony, successful social order, and national stability while blaming others for these deranged assaults on our citizens and communities. Their lust for power flows without restraint. Resistance isn’t their strategy, rebellion is. Such is their pattern of contribution to the anguish and societal decline of our nation with their reincarnation of Nero’s tactics.
