Sometimes the comment sections on our posts are so very disheartening. Full of ‘shoulda-woulda-coulda’ sermonettes to people who are being overrun by criminals and who are therefore paralyzed by fear.
Frankly, the blame is so thick and heavy at times that for my own peace of mind I have simply to avoid reading them for a while… and when I go back again, there they are, sprinkled among more thoughtful responses are summary judgments against the people “over there” who find themselves in a waking nightmare…
…Today, there was this:
you are only living like this because this is how your politicians want you to live. so keep electing them as long as the check comes. who says that being dependent upon the politicians doesn’t have bad consequences?
I closed the Gates of Vienna tab, my stomach in a knot. How do we know here in the U.S., that Hillary won’t win and send us down the same bloody road as Europe is traveling? Then I remembered someone who explains. Kind, compassionate Bill Warner and his humane, accurate explanation for how the Middle East was destroyed in such a short time is a good beginning to comprehending our own plight. His learned explanations for what pervasive, overwhelming fear can do to destroy a culture very quickly were — and still are — a balm.
For those who are quick to judge our European cousins who find themselves at the mercy of both their governments and of rabid Islam, please listen to Dr. Warner’s deeply empathic and historically accurate explanation of how history happened and how it can repeat itself.
We have shown this video before (as have others: it has more than three million views) and no doubt we will air it again. Would that more of us had Dr. Warner’s compassion, a wisdom borne of his deep study of Islam and of the limits of human endurance.
It goes without saying that should Hillary Clinton win in November, America’s future will be under the shadow of the Caliphate. And it will not be because we voted for her or ever wanted her to have the power to make of us the USSA. Nor did France vote for Islam, or Germany, or Greece. All too often there is between our votes and reality a deep chasm.
Let us at least care about one another’s fate. During this protracted emergency, can we forego judging one another?
Please, for pity’s sake, try to understand before it becomes your turn…
