Lying Leftists Like Bernie Sanders are Divisive

Avowed socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders isn’t the first person to say it, but he’s one of the latest and most prominent to claim that conservatives (i.e. Republicans–as if they were the same anymore) are “dividing” the nation.

“I think the Republicans have done a brilliant job over the years — they’re very smart guys — in dividing people on a million different issues. They divide people on gay marriage. They divide people on abortion. They divide people on immigration.”

Liberals have actually been spewing this lie for several years now. Like all Leftist propaganda, it is designed to mask their dark agenda with a lie that accuses their opposition of doing precisely what they are doing. What better way is there to misdirect people from the wrong that you are doing than to accuse your enemies of doing what you are doing?

For example, it was common back around the 1960s for Marxists to denounce the United States as “imperialistic”…even though it was Marxism that was on the march and was working desperately to bring the entire world under its iron clutches, and the United States was trying to help keep as much of the world as possible free.

Of course, you have all the propaganda monikers that Leftists like to use, too, to misdirect people away from their dark agenda. Recall that the Soviet Union was officially known as the “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics”–when there was nothing republican whatsoever about their brutally oppressive government. East Germany, a captured satellite of the Soviet Union, was officially called the “German Democratic Republic,” even though, like its master the USSR, there was nothing whatsoever democratic or republican about a regime that had to build a wall guarded with automatic weapons to keep their own people from escaping the socialist utopia. Or the “People’s Republic of China” where the communist thugs who crushed freedom with tanks don’t even remotely resemble a republic, and certainly the people aren’t allowed any freedom that their communist oppressors don’t want them to have.

So it is that Bernie Sanders (pretty much the only Democrat around with the courage to openly admit he’s a socialist) claims it is conservatives who are “dividing people.”

Prior to the Leftist push that began in this country in the 1960s, the American people were overwhelmingly opposed to sodomy, and only in the last 20 years has an Orwellian and impossible concept like “gay marriage” even become thinkable in public. That’s why sodomy was illegal across the United States from colonial times; it was recognized as a gross perversion of human sexuality that was corrosive to the fabric of a healthy society. That is also why over 40 states had specifically outlawed counterfeit marriage…until five black-robed oligarchs decided to impose it on a once-free nation.

Prior to the indoctrination of the people into liberalism by the intelligentsia in this nation, the American people overwhelmingly understood that abortion involved the murder of an innocent human life in the womb, and was wrong. That’s why abortion was illegal throughout the overwhelming majority of the United States until a majority of black-robed oligarchs told the American people in 1973 that murder should be legal. That is also why the majority of Americans still recognize that abortion is murder, even when you throw in “exceptions” for murder.

Prior to the balkanization of America by Marxist radicals, it was universally understood that a nation must have borders, that it must have controlled immigration and assimilation, and that the rule of law is of paramount importance to the stability of a nation. That is why we have borders, border guards, and immigration law in the first place, and plays no small part in the amazing popularity of the Donald Trump campaign.

So tell me: if someone comes along and attempts to change something that has been in place for centuries, attempts to undermine a system that has produced the greatest nation in history…precisely who is being divisive?

Is the person who wants to continue a centuries-old system that has produced unparalleled liberty and prosperity the divisive one?

Or is the divisive one the person who seeks to undermine all this good, to subvert law and order, and lead people into practices that history and situations around the world unfailingly teach us are unsustainable and destructive?

The truth is extremely clear.  You, Bernie Sanders, and your Leftist ilk (which includes 99% of the Orwellian-named Democrat Party), are the divisive ones.

    Well said.
    The only reason truth is “divisive” is that there will always be those who refuse to accept it.

    • Bob Ellis

      Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law. - Luke 12:51-53

        I’m glad you brought up this scripture, Bob, because is complete obliterates the false image of a sugar-coated, always-sweet-and-nice “Jesus” concocted by the left and even by many evangelical Christians, who push the “welcoming” meme to a ridiculous level.

        I call it “spiritual correctness.”

        However, there’s also Matthew 5:9

        “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

        It’s always fascinated me how Scripture can be used to advance a variety of mutually exclusive positions, whether it’s on ethics or theology.

        Does the intent of the author (or the speaker) matter? I’d say it does, but the problem is we’re not capable of knowing what it is. We can only really speculate because the intentions of the writer are never provided.

        • Bob Ellis

          Of course we can know the intent of the author/speaker. The context almost always makes it pretty clear.

          In Matthew 5:9, Jesus is talking about the virtue of making peace where you can. Of course, when you read that in CONTEXT with the rest of the Bible, you understand that you don’t sacrifice truth and what’s right just for the sake of peace. After all, as Christ himself pointed out in Luke 12:51-53, some people are going to refuse to accept the truth, and in doing so, they will divide themselves from those who seek what is right.

          And if you’re tempted to believe Matthew 5:9 Luke 12:51-53 contradict each other, think of them in the context of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8…

          3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

          2 a time to be born, and a time to die;
          a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
          3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;
          a time to break down, and a time to build up;
          4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
          a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
          5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
          a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
          6 a time to seek, and a time to lose;
          a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
          7 a time to tear, and a time to sew;
          a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
          8 a time to love, and a time to hate;
          a time for war, and a time for peace.

          Once again, the contrast is glaring. One person talks about the Bible but hasn’t made the effort to really learn about it — and indeed even questions what can be learned about it. Another person showed that they have made the effort.
