THE SERVANT GENERAL
ASSAULTS ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
THE FINAL BATTLE – 2
June 5, 2018
Whatever happens in America will eventually reach the whole
world. And the leftists and modernists aim to spread their
ideology to all nations. If Hillary had won, that would have
been the beginning of the end for the USA, and God’s
chastisement would have followed quickly. But God intervened
and against all odds, Trump won. Now he is bringing back the
faith, defending family and life, and opposing the destructive
liberal and cultural elites.
The liberals of course will not just accept this. And so we
see the constant attacks on Trump. And in the face of Trump’s
continued successes, they are growing more desperate.
Where do you stand? If you see all of this as just politics,
you are wrong. This is about the all-out assault on faith,
family and life. This is about religious freedom. This is
about the very survival of Judeo-Christian culture and values.
This is about the furious assault of Satan against everything
God stands for.
revolution is coming to America. Where will you stand?
4, 2018 ( The Wanderer) – Father Jim Schall, S.J., doesn't
excite easily. His writing and teaching abound in thoughtful
insights that make being brilliant look easy. So, when he
recently published his musings "On America's impending
revolution," it brought on what Joe Sobran once called
"the qualm before the storm." Father Schall wasn't
the endless outrage, violence, filth, and murderous epithets
that typify the Left's opposition to Donald Trump, Father
Schall sees the destruction of what Aristotle describes as
our civic virtues – friendship, comity and goodwill
– without which a community cannot live in peace.Since
Karl Marx, the Left's ideology has emphasized class struggle
as the path to ultimate victory, to be achieved by violence
whenever necessary.Trump's presidency does not constitute
a mere pause in the revolution, but the threat of an actual
defeat. He must therefore be stopped – even killed.
In the Left, Father Schall observes "a bitterness and,
among many, a persistent effort to end, as soon as possible,
the new presidency even by calling for his assassination."
this progression of escalating outrage, the president defies
the Left and seems to be accomplishing more, not less, with
each passing day. Father Schall channels Victor
Hanson, a classicist scholar of revolutions, to calmly conclude
that "it cannot go on like this. The
danger will arise from a left desperate to stop any gradual
success of the current presidency…. The more he succeeds,
the more likely the revolution."
Schall is one of the most able political theorists of our
times. When he's worried, we should all be worried. And, as
if you needed it, let me add that the optimists who insist
"the pendulum always swings back" must confront
the reality that, eventually, it doesn't.
this time it won't, because it can't.
elite institutions that have been the engine of the American
Left have not only run out of gas, they have self-destructed.
What were once the major media have been reduced to a vulgar
pack of barbarians, each trying to outdo the other in a mutual
primal scream. Witness the recent White House
Correspondents Dinner, so laced with hatred and scatological
tirades that the event might never be held again. What was
once journalism has become a back-alley brawl of perpetual
delinquents and hacks seething with resentment. The longtime
dean of a major journalism school tells me he has only contempt
for everyone who voted for Trump – and a generation
of reporters undoubtedly digested his view as the party line
required to succeed.
reporting" is dead, and Hollywood is no better. For half
a century, it has pushed the envelope not only to embrace
the sexual revolution but to put it in a pedestal, worshipping
violence and sexual deviance and self-indulgence.
As its image collapses, stars turn on each other in rage.
Women scream at men who apparently took feminists at their
word, only to find that not all of them were secretly longing
to be violently assaulted. Bill Cosby, "America's Dad,"
is now going to prison for rape, while Harvey Weinstein's
boorish obscenities have brought down his movie empire, and
much of Tinseltown with it.
needs only mention higher education and the bipartisan government
establishment to recognize the specter of rot and corruption.
Senator John McCain, in a book blurb translated into plain
English, publicly announces that, now that he's dying, he
can finally tell the truth.
after another, America's time-honored institutions have hollowed
out. The radical Left can no longer appeal to those secular
symbols of stability to justify its rule. Nor can the left
turn to damage control as an option: its traditional avenues
to power and influence are beyond repair. Their credibility
has been shredded in public view. The ruins offer them no
can no longer rule by feigned persuasion. All that is left
is force, and time is running out. The "collusion with
Russia" story is dead, and the Deep State operators desperately
trying to lynch the president are themselves being referred
for criminal trial.
Danton cried as the French Revolution exploded, "Toujours
de l'audace!" Always audacity!
Last summer the audacious Left-wing Bernie Sanders volunteer
James Hodgkinson came close to massacring dozens of Republican
senators and representatives practicing baseball. The fortunate
presence of one police detail stopped him. The "professional"
media scarcely took public notice. They are much more interested
in a stripper supposedly connected to Trump years ago. An
Internet search reveals that the New York Times has mentioned
her ten times as often as it has the wannabe Democrat mass
will this "impending revolution" break out into
the open? Well, Vladimir Lenin's newspaper was called Iskra,
"The Spark." Today's Left foments revolution, but
the event that will spark it cannot be predicted. Who knew
on July 14, 1789, that the release from the Bastille of the
Marquis de Sade, a lewd, insane sex pervert, would lead to
the French Revolution, the terror, and the Vendee? Who knew
on July 26, 1953, that Fidel Castro's failed raid on the Moncada
Barracks in Santiago de Cuba would lead to his takeover six
years later? Earlier this week, radical leftists all over
the world sent hundreds of thousands of violent demonstrators
into the streets to destroy property, set fires, and attack
police to celebrate May Day.
It can happen here.
we can't foresee the spark, we can try to prevent it. This
past week, at the Republican team's first baseball practice,
a veritable army of law enforcement at every level surrounded
the field. They know that violence is brewing. They can't
be everywhere. Nonetheless, they know.
someone else knew too. Before his retirement in 2014, Chicago's
Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., said, ""I expect
to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor
will die a martyr in the public square." Many wondered,
how can this be?
can't predict the spark, but we can examine the motive. Consider:
our old Catholic friend and scholar Erik von Kuehneldt-Leddihn
writes that "the atrocities
of the French Republicans were committed under the slogan
of Liberty, Fraternity and Equality."
Rousseau provided the slogans, but de Sade provided the motive.
The Paris mob was quickly caught up in the murderous violence,
not because of abstractions but spurred by blood lust soaked
with sexual savagery so vile that it escapes mention in most
textbooks, even though it lay at the core of the genocide
of hundreds of thousands throughout France, especially the
Vendee and Bretagne.
must they be annihilated? Because they were Catholic. They
represented the wholesale rejection and condemnation of the
revolution. Which brings us back to Cardinal George and the
driving force of the cultural decay of the last fifty years:
the sexual revolution and the pill. Today, abdicating to the
Culture of Death, the federal courts recognize only one "right"
that has no limits at all: Sex.
that Cardinal George predicts that his successor's successor
will be martyred not in the dank basement of a prison but
in a "public square," teeming with a mob cheering
the execution of someone so vile as to call their unbounded
sexual lusts "sinful."
with his head!
The Exorcist, an enraged Satan spews vulgarities at the priest,
screaming that his mother offers sexual favors in Hell. Incredibly,
the "comic" at the Correspondents Dinner used stunningly
similar language in attacking Trump supporters.
Satan, she knows when she's licked.
know what we're up against. Today ninety percent of the population
under forty has been told not to think, but to "feel
good about themselves." And most often that means simply
to "feel good," period. That is all the formal "education"
they have. From the snowflakes on campus to the high-and-mighty
media screaming profanities and celebrating hate, feelings
Hannah Arendt put it long ago, "The
aim of totalitarian education has never been to instill convictions
but to destroy the capacity to form any."
mobs cheering the execution of Chicago's future Archbishop
will be motivated by the same base lusts that have motivated
every Leftist revolution: lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life, superbia vitae (1 John 2:16). Of course,
the mob will eventually begin killing its own. When there
are no limits, there are no "safe zones" for the
snowflakes. As Dostoevsky puts it, "If
there is no God, then everything is permitted."
