You’d think the usual coterie of Christian Alt-Left rapscallions and scoundrels would have planned their pearl-clutching Tweets in some private bunker somewhere, given the speed and similarity they sent them out on their socials. Unsurprisingly, the static had barely left the station when our Southern Baptist Convention Overlords, teaming up with the theological gremlins over at The Gospel Coalition, began rage tweeting with feigned hand-to-cheek horror that Trump would not denounce white supremacy.
Here is one prominent example by Ed Stetzer, but you can enlarge the rest in the gallery to see a small sampling of who else is rattling those chains. Anyabwile, Greear, Carter, McCraken, they’re all there.
Because Trump is living in the heads of the #BigEva gatekeepers rent-free, rather than Jesus living there, they can look at an exchange where Trump condemns white supremacists twice and conclude the exact opposite happened. This is done by conflating militias, white supremacists, proud boys, right-wing militias, nationalists, and the like- because the dirty little secret is that in their minds, these are all the exact same thing.
It’s their trademark move. “Don’t believe your damned lying eyes and ears, believe our blog articles and podcasts.”
The Creeper-In-Unawarers act as if Trump has not done this categorically many times before, denouncing racism, KKK, white supremacists, and those who cause violence.
Naturally, though he didn’t need to, the President elaborated on his remarks before his Marine One departure, making even more clear what #BigEva made muddy with their slurry of weasel words and uninspired accusations.
Q: Mr. President, can you explain what you meant last night when you said that the Proud Boys should “stand back and stand by?”
THE PRESIDENT: I don’t know who the Proud Boys are. I mean, you’ll have to give me a definition, because I really don’t know who they are. I can only say they have to stand down, let law enforcement do their work. Law enforcement will do the work more and more. As people see how bad this radical, liberal, Democrat movement is and how weak — the law enforcement is going to come back stronger and stronger.
But again, I don’t know who Proud Boys are. But whoever they are, they have to stand down. Let law enforcement do their work.
Ultimately, we ought to thank the Lord he is pulling all the Twitter-critters seeking to stay in the dark, out into the light; grabbing onto their hindlegs and pulling as they scrape and scratch to remain burrowed in their social media dens, so they might be exposed for the hideous and decrepit wretches they are.
To quote AD Robles:
#BigEva is terminal. They know this. They’re passed the point of no return. So they will continue to lie and light fires and write terrible blogs and articles because it’s all they know. They’re not willing to change and they don’t know how. All they have is gaslighting and they won’t give it up. So, be prepared to be called white supremacists more than ever before. They are going to double down. Welcome it. It just speeds up the process of their irrelevance to anything of lasting value. The time to start building for the future is now. Let’s learn from their mistakes. Good things ahead! Build your families. Build your resources. Use them for the kingdom. Obey Christ. Fight the current battles against darkness (not yesterday’s) and have fun doing it.
