• Burning Bible, an American Flag: Christianity and the United States Under Assault

    Surge Summary: Having created general havoc for weeks now, including vandalism of memorials and attacks on churches, radical, neo-Marxist rioters burned a flag and Bibles this past weekend in Portland. These people destroy what they hate, in this case a symbol of America and the Christian/Jewish holy book.

    The ritualistic burning of American flags continued in Portland over the weekend.  I know you understand that a hallmark of the left, whether it’s kneeling professional athletes or neo-Marxists in the streets, is to disrespect and burn the American flag.

    Well, now the left is sending a new signal.  Bibles were also thrown onto the bonfires in Portland this weekend.  That shouldn’t surprise anyone.  The left burns what it hates.

    We have already reported how they have attacked churches and synagogues, vandalizing them and, in some cases, burning them to the ground.  All of it happened while the major media and virtually the entire leadership of the Democrat Party and the progressive movement are completely silent.

    It’s one thing to say that the demonstrators should remain peaceful.  It’s something completely different to ignore the regular attacks on houses of worship and now Bibles.  After all, the social justice warriors are always telling us, “Silence is violence.”

    You’ll remember that the left and its media allies were more furious and vitriolic about Donald Trump walking over to a church in Washington, D.C., to defend religious liberty than they were about the fact that left-wing arsonists the night before tried to burn the church down.

    When I say “neo-Marxists,” I’m not trying to be provocative.  A lot of what we see in today’s “woke” left is Marxism, plain and simple.  Whenever adherents of Marxism have taken power, it has meant pain and suffering for many people, but particularly for Christians and Jews.

    Marxism, believing in no God other than the state, has resulted in tens of millions of deaths in the old Soviet Union, communist China, Cuba, North Korea — wherever it has put down roots.

    First it burns Bibles.  Then it burns churches.  And then they burn Christians.

    We must defeat the radical left!
