The latest serial lie in the Leftist playbook is to call anyone on the right a white supremacist. Just note their latest talking points. But never let them get away with that slander. Just respond like this to any charges of racism or white supremacy:
Unrestricted abortions are the #1 priority of the Left, and they kill black children at a rate three times that of whites. If advocating for that isn’t racism and “white supremacy” then nothing is.
And if that doesn’t shut them up, feel free to bring up how Republicans support school choice that disproportionately helps blacks, how illegals take the jobs of low-income blacks and suppress the wages of remaining jobs, how Democrats just use them for votes but haven’t really done anything for them, how despite the media lies the police kill whites as often as blacks, they want to disarm blacks so they can’t defend themselves while the elite Leftists have armed guards, they try to destroy successful conservative blacks, they are proven to talk down to blacks whereas conservatives do not, etc.
As Thomas Sowell said, the Left did what slavery and oppression could not: Destroy the black family.
White Supremacist Gang Member Executed for Dragging Texas Man — I almost missed this due to the focus on the Georgia execution. I am glad to see justice done here.
It seems ironic, though, that the crowd allegedly opposing “hate speech / hate crimes” (I say allegedly because they are the biggest haters in my view) typically oppose the death penalty. Yet I’m for it in cases like this, so I supported a much stronger penalty than they did.
I repeat: For a crime that epitomizes hate and racism, I supported a stronger penalty than the hate speech / hate crime advocates. They would typically oppose the punishment that I support.
These news items typically bring out the “Christians should oppose the death penalty” lines. But the death penalty was God’s idea. And He never apologized for it, and never overturned it.
Christians can oppose it in practice, if they think that it isn’t being fairly applied, but they shouldn’t oppose it in principle.
The Christians who insist you must oppose the death penalty always end up using bad reasoning. I’ve seen them use “turn the other cheek” (uh, it is hard to do that when you are dead) and other out-of-context passages to support their views. I addressed this more in two posts — ineffective arguments against capital punishment / somewhat effective arguments against capital punishment.
