Since Donald Trump’s presidential victory on November 8, 2016, rioters have taken to the streets to protest a democratically elected president. Although the liberal media claims these are “peaceful” protests, there have been numerous death threats against Donald Trump, calls from celebrities for his assassination, signs demanding that Melania Trump be raped, and recently, an ambulance was delayed due to protesters blocking traffic resulting in the death of the father of a 4 year old girl.
The protests continued this week at First Baptist Church, home of Pastor Robert Jeffress, led by Next Generation Action activist, Dominique Alexander. Alexander has an extensive criminal record and organized the Dallas protest that led to the shooting deaths of 5 police officers. Dallas news also reports that Alexander had been implicated in causing several bodily injury to a 2 year old child.
In video footage obtained by FOX news, Alexander is heard telling supporters that First Baptist Church is the “Mother Mecca” of all racist churches. Did you catch that. The M-O-T-H-E-R M-E-C-C-A of racist churches. For those uninformed about Islam, Mecca is considered the holiest site among Islamic adherents.
The irony of this is that Trump and his supporters have been repeatedly accused-ad nauseam-of being “Islamophobic”. Yet somehow, this usage of an Islamic “holy” site is acceptable rhetoric in attempting to vilify a Baptist church? Imagine how CNN, New York Times, Huff Post, and all the-to borrow from Michael Savage-Press Klux Klan media would have reacted if Donald Trump had stood in front of any church, and called it the “Mother Mecca” of churches. Obama, Hillary, the DNC, Southern Poverty Law Center, the NAACP, CAIR, et al, would have all called for his resignation (and likely his head-literally).
Jeffress is an outspoken Trump supporter, and the narrative that liberal media has attempted to create (unsuccessfully) is that anyone who voted for Trump is a racist. And why is Trump racist? Because they say so (classic circular reasoning and political correctness vitriol abound among their greatest arguments). Never mind that Hillary Clinton used racial slurs (“N” word) around her chef, or the Clinton Foundation’s defrauding of millions of blacks in Haiti, or Bill Clinton, with Hillary’s acquiescence, snubbing his black son, Danney Williams, or that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Trump Riots are funded by George Soros, a known Nazi collaborator. But Robert Jeffress? Seriously? I have my disagreements with Jeffress on a few doctrinal issues, but Jeffress? a racist? Never mind that his staff is comprised of African-Americans (Jephte Fanor, Pastoral Care Associate) and Hispanics (Kevin Batista, Minister of Missions and Evangelism). This accusation is a gross defamation of a good man, and is irresponsible, reckless, callous, and hateful. But it’s what we’ve come to expect from chronic fabricators among the Left, desperate enough to create the most elaborate Stephen King style narratives necessary for their “cause”.
Furthermore, it is also obvious that Alexander is attempting to associate “hate” and “racism” against ALL churches to minimize the influence of churches throughout the country. A “guilt-by-association” tactic: if you attend a gospel preaching, Bible-believing church with a white pastor, you’re a racist. It’s worth noting that neither Alexander nor any of the Trump rioters are protesting in front of BLACK churches who voted for Trump.
It is beyond ironic that the Left has resorted to such insipid gutter-ball tactics. But the fact that the Alt-Leftists have consistently couched their ad hominem attacks in “Islamophobic” rhetoric, while at the same time freely using Islamic sites as analogies to smear churches is the height of hypocrisy…and quite racist.
