Speaking Truth To Power, And Having Your Voice Silenced.

It appears that the atheist AllahPundit can’t handle the truth about the 1st Amendment.


First Amendment-Endorsed License Plate

(UPDATE: some have argued that I was banned because of my many comments to the “Obama is a Lightworker” thread, but they are wrong. I was banned approximately 13 hours after my last post in that thread, but less than 10 minutes after my last post in the “South Carolina to introduce license plate with cross on it” thread.

Allahpundit’s message about my banning appears in the SC license plate thread, not the Obama Lightworker thread. Don’t be deceived…I was banned because of what I said about the First Amendment. The post below is very long. If you want the “Cliff Notes” version, go here.)

I made a few very on-topic posts here, here, here, and here to a thread about license plates in SC with a Cross on them.

Allahpundit loves free speech so much that (at approximately 2:30 PM on Saturday June 7, 2008 ) he banned me from posting on HotAir. And he didn’t even have the backbone to post a comment saying “Banned!” to let others know that I had been banned. That’s OK, people will come looking for me here when they realize I’m absent there.

(UPDATE: Allahpundit did post a comment (finally) over 18 hours after he banned me, but only after being prodded to do so. Many more updates below…)

And if AP says I was banned for calling the ACLU the “Anti-Amerikkka Communist Lawyers Union” then he is willfully ignoring all of the comments where I have made it clear that I think racism is stupid and that we are all one race. (UPDATE: that link may no longer be functional…if it doesn’t work, try this alternative. It’s not exactly the same, but covers some of the same science.)

“Anti-Amerikkka” was a Rev. Wright reference.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again:

Those who can’t handle the truth try to silence those who speak it.

I tried to post a comment at approximately 2:30 PM on Saturday June 7, 2008 (only 5-10 minutes after my last successful post at 2:24 PM) and when I hit the submit button I was met with:
You are not allowed to leave comments.

Allahpundit may be able to prevent my telling the truth about the First Amendment on HotAir, but he can’t prevent me from telling the truth here.

The first Amendment does NOT prevent Congress from making any law respecting an “endorsement” of religion. Our Congress has always “endorsed” Christianity, from the moment of the opening prayer at the very first session of Congress.

Go watch the two videos here of the opening Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance on two different days when Barack Hussein Obama Jr. was given the authority (by former KKK member Senator Byrd, no less!) to be Chair of the Senate. In the second of those two videos, the woman giving the prayer quotes the Bible…

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (King James Version)

…and she says “in the name of Jesus” twice, with Barack Obama standing right there.

There was no objection from Senator Obama.  No questioning of whether or not this action was acceptable under the First Amendment.  No mention of “hijacked” faith there from Senator Obama. Barack did not say a word about it.

Why not?

Because Barack Hussein Obama Jr. knows that it has always been this way since the opening prayer of the first session of our Congress (and actually goes back to the Constitutional Convention)

Go ahead, AllahPundit, ban me from HotAir.

Update: Sunday June 8th, 2008, 11:45 AM

After over 10 hours had passed since my banning, without any acknowledgement of it by Allahpundit in the thread, I sent the following email late last night/early this morning…

——————————————————–

From: [Red Pill]
Sent: Sunday, June 08, 2008 1:28 AM
To: ‘ed@hotair.com’
Subject: Red Pill Special Request
Importance: High

 

Captain Ed,

 

  I am Red Pill, and I have a special request to ask of you. 

 

  Allahpundit banned me today.  That is his right, and he chose to exercise that right.  I am not writing to ask you to “un-ban” me.  I’m writing to ask for you to put a simple 4 word comment (“Allahpundit banned Red Pill) in the thread where I was banned

 

  Allahpundit didn’t put any message (like “Banned!”) in the post when he banned me.  As a result, people don’t know that I was banned, and they may misinterpret my silence.  All I’m asking for is that they be told what happened.  Usually when AP bans someone, he makes it public.  All I’m asking for is for my banning to be made public, too.  Please don’t give my real name away, just describe me as “Red Pill”.

 

  [I gave Ed links to pictures of my family]

 

  I am an ordinary man.  I am not doing anything special, other than being obedient to the calling of God.  This is for His glory.

 

Thanks in advance for your help,

[Red Pill]

 

——————————————————–

Captain Ed must have communicated with AllahPundit, because this appeared this morning:

Just FYI, Red Pill has (finally) been banned. That’s why he’s not responding.

Allahpundit on June 8, 2008 at 8:49 AM

AllahPundit, kudos to you for posting that. But shame on you for having to be asked to do so. And shame on you for hiding behind the pseudonym “OneGyT” when you banned me the first time. (OneGyT issued this statement a few minutes before I was banned, and this statement immediately after I was banned. Either OneGyT is omniscient, or OneGyT is really Allahpundit, since Allahpundit finally admitted almost 8 weeks later that it was he who had banned me. (Usually, when Allahpundit bans someone, he notes that publicly with his name, not hiding behind the fellow glue-sniffer OneGyT.

Just curious…why was he banned? I read through his comments and I’m wondering which of them constituted a bannable offense. Also, I’m wondering about your use of the word “finally.” Was this a personal issue?

fossten on June 8, 2008 at 10:46 AM

fossten “gets it”.

I would appreciate it if the first HotAir reader who sees this post would then go back to this HotAir thread and post a simple comment saying:

Red Pill Responds.

(UPDATE: Thank you Maxx)

The whole issue here is about our Constitution’s first amendment. It was written to protect the God-given unalienable right for Christians to express their faith in speech, writing, assembly, and petition the Government for a redress of [religious] grievances. The Congress was prohibited from making any law respecting an establishment [creation, ownership, and operation] of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

But what has happened in this country is that the Democratic Socialist Communists have turned that 180 degrees and now use a twisted interpretation of the first amendment in order to deny the very rights that the amendment was written to protect!

By claiming that the first amendment prohibits any government-related activity from “endorsing” a particular religion, the Democratic Socialist Communists now silence Christians while allowing any and every other religion the freedoms that they are denying Christians. The word “endorsement” is not even in our Constitution! Neither are the words “separation“, “church“, or “state” in any meaning other than the individual states (rather than “the state” or anything implying the Federal government). I guess that is something that the the Democratic Socialist Communists believe is in the “penumbra” of the Constitution.

People miss the point about the SC “I Believe” license plates. Putting one of those plates on your car won’t make you any more “holy” or more “Christian”. People look at the life you live, not the license plate on your car. But I fully support these license plates because it is a focal point for how the 1st Amendment has been turned upside down and is being used to attack the very freedoms it was written to protect.

Whether Allahpundit realizes it or not, he has just made himself an accomplice to the plan of the Democratic Socialist Communists for “Defeating the Ultra-Right“.

Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

Selah.

Update: Sunday June 8th, 2008, 2:20 PM

Allahpundit, while I am clearly (and rightfully) angry that you silenced my voice on HotAir, I still love you. And so does God.

Update: Sunday June 8th, 2008, 3:50 PM

Lemme’ see. I can’t remember them all, but there’s
Soothsayer,
honora,
PinkyBigglesworth,

and now Red Pill.

The list just seems to go on and on.

My collie says:

When are you going to get banned, CC?

I’m an “internet nobody”, remember? I’m not significant enough to ban. You might as well ban the 1s and the 0s.

My collie says:

Apparently, your jokes are bad, but not yet bad enough.

CyberCipher on June 8, 2008 at 1:36 PM

Thanks for providing that list, CyberCipher. On a humorous note, I’ve always enjoyed your collie’s commentary.

On an extremely serious note, people need to understand that fascism creeps up slowly at first. As Nazi’s in Germany started silencing voices, some people didn’t speak up because the Nazi’s weren’t coming for them…

…yet.

If you let others’ voices be silenced one by one, then when it comes your turn to be silenced there is no one left to stand up for you.

We must stand up for the rights of the least powerful among us.

We must stand up for the God-given unalienable right to Life for unborn children. No biological mother should be forced into motherhood, but if she doesn’t want to raise her child, let her give her child up for adoption, not murder. There are thousands of couples in the United States who want to adopt those babies. Unfortunately, due to abortion, there are not enough babies given up for adoption here to meet the demand, so those parents frequently fly halfway around the world to countries like China and Vietnam, and pay tens of thousands of dollars to Communist governments in order to adopt a child.

We must stand up for the God-given unalienable right to Life for people like this woman.

If we don’t stand up for the rights of others, we have no right to complain when people try to take rights away from us.

Selah.

Update: Sunday June 8th, 2008, 5:20 PM

We’re on the topic of the First Amendment here; who gets silenced and who gets “endorsed”.

Our country was founded by a very small group of men, smaller than Gideon’s army, who were willing to put everything on the line – their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor – to fight for freedom and establish this one nation, under God. The United States of America was founded as a Christian nation.

Now, “tolerance” means tolerance of everything except Bible-believing Christians.

If a school district tried to force every student to read the Bible, there would be an uproar and people would say that’s “intolerable”.

But when Maryland middle and high school students are required to read about Islamic teachings that have been dumbed down and are products of political correctness, that’s “tolerance”.

According to the New York Examiner, a new report issued by the American Textbook Council said that administrators who approved books for use in the Montgomery County school district caved into pressure by pro-Islamic groups seeking to present a less violent interpretation of Islam.

Gilbert Sewall, director of the council, stated that, for example, the definition of jihad has gone through “amazing cultural reorchestration” in textbooks, losing any connotation of violence, the Examiner wrote.

Other terms, such as sharia law, have been adjusted or removed from lessons to avoid what he called “inconvenient truths.”

Update: Sunday June 8th, 2008, 5:30 PM

What gets me is the disgusting language some posters use. Swearing, blue language, vile word-pictures, etc. Those are the people who should be warned, then banned.

We’re adults here and too many times angry posters act as children.

Skidd on June 8, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Bravo, Skidd! Standing ovation!
If anyone deserves to be banned, those are the folks who deserve it. Nine out of ten of them are Demoncrat trolls. But Allahpundit tolerates them just fine. A prime example is Roger Waters: Exhibit A. Exhibit B.

I predict that Allahpundit’s next banning victim will be SaintOlaf.

Stand up too boldly for Jesus Christ, aggrevate people just a little too much, and the ban hammer comes slamming down.

But turn HotAir into the Daily Kos and Allahpundit tolerates it just fine.

Update: Sunday June 8th, 2008, 9:57 PM

I was offline for a little while, but back now. I’d like to respond to a follow-up comment by Maxx:

Actually I see now that Allah had good reason to ban Red Pill. Take a look at this current thread to see why.

So I owe Allah and Michelle an apology for saying Allah could not handle the truth, that was far from correct and uncalled for. Sorry about that Allah, I do apologize.

However, it sure would be nice if you told us a person was banned in the very thread in which the commenter made the offense. It might avoid some of this upset.

Nevertheless, I jumped to conclusions and I’m sorry about that.

Red Pill, you got banned again because you did exactly what Allah warned you not to do. Allah was justified to ban you because you don’t listen.

Maxx on June 8, 2008 at 7:23 PM

Maxx, I appreciate your prior support. I believe that you are mistaken in your follow-up retraction, for the following reasons:

1) In the thread you mention, the majority of my comments were specifically in response to a request from funky chicken:

Red Pill, I’d love to hear your take as well, if you don’t mind.

Here’s the article:
http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=MWMyNTczMjFlYWUxNTlkNzNjNDdhNWFlZGIyZWI0Yjg=

funky chicken on June 6, 2008 at 6:13 PM

2) I made it clear that I would be splitting one long reply into pieces:

Red Pill, I’d love to hear your take as well, if you don’t mind.
funky chicken on June 6, 2008 at 6:13 PM

OK. I’m honored that you’d ask me. This may be long, and long posts with multiple links have a way of not appearing, so I’ll break it into pieces. You may not like everything I have to say, but you asked for my take and I’m going to give it “Straight Talk” style.

Red Pill on June 6, 2008 at 7:31 PM

3) I commented about the article funky asked me to comment on, in pieces, and finished with this:

Red Pill, I’d love to hear your take as well, if you don’t mind.
funky chicken on June 6, 2008 at 6:13 PM

Done.

Red Pill on June 6, 2008 at 8:31 PM

4) I then went on to comment about the false messiah Obama, the relevance of a candidate’s faith to evangelical voters, and the threat of having a Marxist Democratic Socialist Communist as our President. People who don’t understand that threat don’t have eyes to see that this game plan is being played out in front of our very eyes with Amnesty (which both Obama and McCain support), AGW Taxes (which both Obama and McCain support), and attacks intent on “Defeating the Ultra-Right (which both Obama and McCain support). McCain attacked the “Ultra-Right” “Agents of Intolerance” back in 2000, after he lost the state of South Carolina (you know, that state that will be producing those “I Believe” license plates…). McCain unethically fielded a “good friend” stalking horse candidate specifically to deceive Christian voters in South Carolina. Without Fred Thompson in the race, Mike Huckabee would have won South Carolina.

5) My last comment in that thread was on June 7, 2008 at 1:30 AM. I left the thread and did not return.

6) I didn’t even see (until now) the very next comment:

Red Pill, as I recall from the day you were banned, the reason was thread spamming.

I offer this as constructive criticism.

(1) This site is not a substitute for your blog. If you have extended comments to make, make them there, and link back (with brief quoting) here so those who aren’t interested don’t get lost looking for non-Red Pill comments.

(2) If you post more than three contiguous comments, it’s not a conversation; it’s a monologue.

(3) If you post more than 10 in a row, you’re spamming.

sulla on June 7, 2008 at 1:33 AM

In retrospect, I should have done what sulla recommended in (1).

In regards to (2) and (3), the HotAir Terms of Use say:

We reserve the right to delete your comments or revoke your registration for any reason. Rarely, if ever, will we do so simply because we disagree with you. We will, however, usually do so if you post something that is, in our good-faith opinion, (a) off-topic; (b) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, ############, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate these terms of use or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (c) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services.

So, according to that, “spam” is interpreted in the conventional way, as in “spam email”.

Tell me what goods and services I was “advertising, soliciting, or otherwise promoting”.

And if your response is “Mike Huckabee”, then HotAir is not living up to the very purpose for which Michelle Malkin created it:

politically-oriented video is on the rise:
– Google teamed up with Al Gore’s Current TV network to provide Google Current.
– Amazon.com broadcasts Fishbowl featuring left-wing comedian Bill Maher.
– iTunes offers a discount price for Comedy Central’s liberal Daily Show.
– AOL joined with the Huffington Post to provide Contagious Festival, a collection of conservative-bashing short movies.

These efforts have one thing in common: they are all produced by liberals for liberals.

I formed Hot Air Network, LLC, to bring ideological diversity—because we all love diversity–to the videoblogging world.

7) If AllahPundit was banning me for the Obama thread, it would have happened early Saturday morning, and his message would have been in that thread. But that’s not the case. While that thread may have annoyed him, that’s not what got me banned.

8 ) The thread that got me banned was the “SC License Plate” thread, which is really not just about license plates in South Carolina. It is about the freedoms that the First Amendment is meant to protect. But the Constitution cannot defend itself. It must be defended by men and women. Which is exactly what I am doing. It is the very reason why the Constitutional (Article II Section 1) Presidential Oath of Office is:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

It is the very reason why the Congressional Oath of Office is:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Now, the Constitution has something to say about people who take that oath and then break it.

I am doing my honest best to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The First Amendment of our Constitution has come under such insidious attack from domestic enemies that the very freedoms it was meant to protect are being taken away. South Carolina has every right to make license plates with a cross and “I Believe” on them. Allahpundit thinks (wrongly) that the First Amendment takes away the right of SC to do what they are doing in the way in which they are doing it (emphasis mine, as usual):

Two ways to play this for First Amendment purposes. Either offer designs for every other religion, right down to the pentagram plate for wiccans (a strategy which would still be of dubious constitutionality), or cancel the plate and leave this stuff on bumper stickers where it belongs.

posted at 11:20 am on June 7, 2008 by Allahpundit

9) Allahpundit posted that thread while I was out living my real life with my family. When I got back online, I found the thread, and comments like the following:

Where is right4life and Red Pill Screaming about how we are persecuting them for thinking this crap is stupid and belongs on you bumper not your plate.

I have been fighting the FL version of this since they came out.

Squid Shark on June 7, 2008 at 11:53 AM

And

Where is right4life and Red Pill Screaming about how we are persecuting them for thinking this crap is stupid and belongs on you bumper not your plate.

I have been fighting the FL version of this since they came out.

Squid Shark on June 7, 2008 at 11:53 AM

Very good question, where are they…and St Olaf?

It belongs on a bumper sticker next to “No need knockin’ when the trailer’s rockin’”

AprilOrit on June 7, 2008 at 11:56 AM

10) My first post in the SC License Plate thread came more than 12 hours after my last post in the Obama thread.

Rock Hill On, South Carolina!!!

Red Pill on June 7, 2008 at 2:01 PM

11) Allahpundit banned me less than 10 minutes after I posted this:

Let’s get something straight.

The words “establishment” and “endorsement” have very different meanings.

If I “establish” a restaurant that is totally different than if I “endorse” a restaurant.

If I “establish” a restaurant, I create it, I own it, and I operate it.

If I “endorse” a restaurant, I am just a customer who likes it enough to tell someone else about it.

The first Amendment prevents Congress from making any law respecting an “establishment” of religion. Our Government is not allowed to create, own, or operate a religion (as was previously done by the Government in England with the Church of England).

The first Amendment does NOT prevent Congress from making any law respecting an “endorsement” of religion. Our Congress has always “endorsed” Christianity, from the moment of the opening prayer at the very first session of Congress.

When the President gives the State of the Union address, do you know what is above his head, LITERALLY CARVED IN STONE?

“In God We Trust”.

Take that “Separation of Church and State” crap and get it the HELL out of here!

Red Pill on June 7, 2008 at 2:22 PM

12) I only got one more comment in before I was banned:

And there you go people. Plates designed for people like Red Pill to buy.

Reaps on June 7, 2008 at 2:20 PM

Just Speakin’ Truth to Power!

(I thought the liberals were supposed to like that…/sarc)

Red Pill on June 7, 2008 at 2:24 PM

I doubt that the 2:24 PM comment was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I think it was the last line of the 2:22PM comment. I tried to submit another comment around 2:30 PM and discovered that I had been banned.

From that evidence, I conclude that the straw that broke the camel’s back was that Allahpundit can’t handle the truth about the First Amendment.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

Those who can’t handle the truth try to silence those who speak it.

The irony of it all is that Allahpundit’s banning me for that only goes to prove it’s true.

It’s all good…

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28

Update: Friday July 25th, 2008

We all (myself included) need to be reminded to speak the truth in love.

  1. Burt says:

    I’m a read-only lurker at HotAir. Take this for what it’s worth.

    I doubt it was any one comment. But you hijacked a lot of threads with so many comments you killed conversation.

    That’s not first amendment. that’s abusing a privelege offered by a for-profit company, and hurting their bottom line. that’s not cool.

  2. DanK says:

    RP,

    I read your posts on H/A and although I don’t find any offense with your comments, I think you’re entirely wrong about our country being a “Christian” nation. True, you won’t find the phrase “separation of state” in either the Consitution or the Declaration but you also don’t see the words Jesus, Christiian or Bible either. The architects of these blueprint documents (Jefferson and Madison) had very different opinions on state sponsored religion especially the endorsement thereof.

    Exit question: does it diminish Christianity if the United States was a secular nation?

  3. Burt says:

    I predict that Allahpundit’s next banning victim will be SaintOlaf.

    If Olaf gets banned, it won’t be because he’s “Christian,” but because he is thread poison. He attacks everyone, either for not being Christian (atheist, Mormon, Jew) or for not being Christian enough. Roger Waters is also obnoxious, but Olaf is in a league of his own.

    Your comments, taken individually, rarely sink to Olaf’s level. But the sheer volume of them is suffocating. When you participated in a thread, you were usually fine. When you monopolized them, you killed the conversation.

    Fascism by filibuster is still fascism.

    Stand up too boldly for Jesus Christ, aggrevate people just a little too much, and the ban hammer comes slamming down.

  4. Burt says:

    You thanked maxx when he was on your side. Will you quote this too?

    Actually I see now that Allah had good reason to ban Red Pill. Take a look at this current thread to see why.

    Maxx on June 8, 2008 at 7:23 PM

  5. Burt says:

    my comment is awaiting moderation?

    talk about irony.

  6. It wasn’t me forcing the moderation…it was done automatically by WordPress. I just got back online and read these comments. I’ll look into the moderation thing…it’s the first time it’s happened.

  7. I don’t know by what criteria WordPress decides to automatically “hold” comments for moderation. It may be because of outside links (you link back to Hot Air). I just figured out how to approve your comment, and just did so. It now shows up above.

    And yes, I will be doing a new update to address that very comment by Maxx.

  8. Tim says:

    I read Hot Air but notice that a secular worldview permeates that site. It just proves (again) how true the Bible is. It isn’t Democrat vs. Republican or liberal vs. conservative. It is Satan fighting against God and using us as his weapons.

    It is a dark world attempting to cut off the light shining in a dying world.

    John 1:9-13

    9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

    10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

    11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

    12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
    KJV

  9. Tim, I thank God (literally) for your comment above. You understand Ephesians 6:12.

    I would guesstimate that approximately 90% or more of the posts on HotAir are posted by only two people: Allahpundit and “The Good Captain” Ed Morrissey. There are a few exceptions (Robert Spencer, “The Boss” Michelle Malkin, Patterico) but they are fairly rare.

    Allahpundit is an atheist. Ed Morrissey is a Christian. It is really very enlightening to see how different their posts are. There’s probably no starker contrast than how they treat Mike Huckabee. Allahpundit is viscious in his attacks of Huckabee. Ed is extremely fair.

    Now, when it comes to *commenters* on HotAir, there appear to be no holds barred. You look at the vile bile that the “dark side” forces unleash, and you suddently feel like you’re reading Daily Kos, not Hot Air. I’ve been around HotAir since the beginning, and I am convinced that there are a ton of Demoncrat trolls who infested Hot Air for this election.

    You are exactly right in what you say.

    For those with eyes to see, this spiritual warfare being played out here proves that what the Bible says is true. You don’t see this warfare happening in regard to *any* other religion…no one is here on HotAir defending the Koran “jihad” verses…no one is here on HotAir attacking Hinduism…etc.

    The only battle raging is the battle over John 14:6.

    darkness vs. light
    Sith vs. Jedi
    Satan vs. God

    God works through His people, and Satan works through his people.

    It’s good to make your acquaintance, Tim.
    Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

  10. Satan is using the Communist Party USA to attack our Constitution. They have completely taken over the Democrat Party:

    “This unity will include an ever-growing Left-Center political coalition that includes the Democratic Party, left and progressive independents who recognize the danger the ultra-right poses, and all social movements on the major issues of our day.”

    Unfortunately, the Communists have also made significant inroads in the Republican Party, as well. McCain supports their agenda.

    Romney betrayed conservatives when he quit the race early, gave his full support to McCain at least a month prematurely, and tried to force Mike Huckabee to quit.

    Ron Paul has some things right (abolish the IRS and Federal Reserve) but some things wrong (immediate withdrawl from Iraq). While Ron Paul has a very committed following, Ron Paul will not be the next President of the United States. His followers will join forces with Huck’s Army (http://www.hucksarmy.com/)

    Mike Huckabee is the next President of the United States.

  11. Tim says:

    Thanks, Red Pill. It’s good to meet your acquaintance, too.

    With evil rising in the world and America at war with itself, you can see God shaking fence-sitting Chrisitians. It’s getting to the point where a Christian has to make a decision.

    “Do I proclaim Christ on Sunday in church and live like the world the rest of the week, or do I proclaim Christ as my Lord for all time?”

    The spiritual war and its stakes are rising. It’s going to become more and more uncomfortable to call yourself a Christian without nasty reprecussions. Fence-sitting is quickly disappearing as an option.

    Nevertheless, I choose Christ. Among many other reasons, He was motivated by love. Satan and his children are only motivated by hatred.

    Red Pill, as to your comments about the communist party, right on! Have you ever seen the Communist Goals of 1963? http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

    Communism didn’t die when the Berlin Wall came down because Communism is a philosophy, not a country, nor a people.

  13. Good word, Tim.

    The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

    John 10:10 (New King James Version)

  14. Tim,
    I had never seen the Communist Goals of 1963. Thank you for providing the link. We must know our enemy and understand their game plan. They’ve accomplished quite a few of their goals in the last 45 years. It’s time to swing the pendulum back towards freedom and protection of our God-given unalienable rights.

    I believe the Communists were behind the JFK assassination, in order to take out an anti-Communist President (remember the Cuban Missile Crisis) and elevate LBJ to the Presidency. LBJ, as Commander-in-Chief, had rules of engagement in place that made it impossible for our military to win. We didn’t lose in Vietnam, we lost in Washington, D.C.

    Given what John Kerry did upon his return to the U.S., he should not even be allowed to be a Senator (see this). What the hell was John Kerry doing representing POW-MIA families? Why was John McCain in full agreement with John Kerry?

    The answer is that they are both Communists.

    John McCain is a member of the Trilateral Commission.

    John McCain has been receiving money from George Soros since 2001.

    Could it be any more obvious that since Soros funds both McCain and Obama, if the November ballot were to be McCain vs. Obama, then George Soros would win either way?

    The Holy Spirit revealed to me on February 7, 2008 that Mike Huckabee will be the next President of the United States.

    Praise God!

    Red Pill, I logged on over at HotAir only to discover you had been banned. I have always had a great deal of respect for Michelle Malkin, but I am becoming more and more disenchanted with HotAir. I have been amazed at how professed athiest commenters have been allowed to spew hatred and vitriol toward Christian commenters without so much as a warning. This became evident in the threads on the movie “Expelled”. But when a professed Christian shows boldness toward their faith and *gasp* quotes scripture, then it becomes “poison” and “thread hijacking”.

    Anyway, their loss. Keep the faith my friend, some day we’ll all meet face to face when we cross Jordan. Keep your armour intact and your sword sharp. You have helped sharpen mine with your insight. Thank God that He has not left us without direction on this troubled, confused planet. There will be many former athiests during the tribulation.

    In His Service

    The “product or service” you’re “selling” is the Wit and Wisdom of Red Pill.

    As an example, the text of this post (not including comments) takes up ten printed pages in MS Works writer. After a few pages, eyes start to glaze.

    You can be as verbose as you want on your own blog. But in social settings – online included – brevity is a virtue.

    Your desire to defending the Faith is wonderful. But improve your skill set so you can do so more effectively. That means listening to your critics and adjusting the approach you use for your message.

    Dialing back the word count would do wonders.

    Make your point quickly. Don’t be exhaustive. Leave them wanting more. Be patient. Don’t say everything you’re thinking. Focus. Don’t be silent on what matters to you…but make every word count, as though you were being charged by the character.

    Streamline your writing, match it with your convictions, and you’ll be far more effective. You have talent; just refine it.

    I wish you well.

  17. Wow… I looked at some of the other links on the site Tim led me to… look at this

    PSYCHOPOLITICS – the art and science of asserting and maintaining dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses, and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through “mental healing.”

    Remind you of Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. and “let the HEALING begin”?

    Update:
    Geocities is gone, but Reocities is an attempt to reconstruct it…
    so instead of this dead link:

    try this link instead:

  19. labrat, thank you for your encouragement.
    Burt, thank you for your advice. I will try to heed it.

    I hope both of you will join me in being part of the solution.

  20. Tim says:

    Burt, thoughtful post.

    Red Pill, Burt’s right. You’re sharp and have talent. Refine it and your witness for Christ will be extremely fruitful. Talk to God about the banning. Ask Him what He wants from you and what He wants you to do.

    It happened for a reason, bogus or not.

  21. Thanks, Tim.

    Burt’s right about some things and wrong about some things. I believe he is wrong in saying that I was “hurting their bottom line” over at HotAir. To the contrary, I believe I was helping it. But that’s a moot point now.

    I know Burt’s right about being too wordy. Sometimes a strength can become a weakness. I’m persistent, and sometimes that’s a strength, sometimes a weakness.

    The Holy Spirit has already shown me what He wants me to do, and it’s very exciting. People who want to join me can learn more here.

    RP,

    I read your posts on H/A and although I don’t find any offense with your comments, I think you’re entirely wrong about our country being a “Christian” nation. True, you won’t find the phrase “separation of state” in either the Consitution or the Declaration but you also don’t see the words Jesus, Christiian or Bible either. The architects of these blueprint documents (Jefferson and Madison) had very different opinions on state sponsored religion especially the endorsement thereof.

    Exit question: does it diminish Christianity if the United States was a secular nation?

    Please see my post entitled “No Mention of God in the U.S. Constitution?

    In response to your question, if the Democratic Socialist Communists at the ACLU were to be successful in their attempt to apply their twisted interpretation of the first amendment (i.e., reading “establishment” as “endorsement” and seeing “Separation of Church and State” where it doesn’t exist in the Constitution), that would not lead to a secular nation…the truth, whether you like it or not, is that it would lead to an Islamic Sharia Law nation.

    Would that diminish “Christianity”?

    It wouldn’t diminsh Jesus Christ, but it most certainly would diminish the Americans who follow Jesus Christ.

  23. OneGyT says:

    Hello, yes it’s me. And I’m not Allahpundit.

    I just found this and I think it’s high time to set the record straight on a few things.

    First, I did not ban you. I predicted you would be banned and did so satirizing your comment style. My second comment was not explaining why I banned you, but rather why I thought you would be banned. Apparently I was right. Another note about that second comment I posted: It was rather poorly worded, but the apparent contradiction in “How can you ‘agree with everything’ someone said, when you readily admit that you are ‘not really sure what [they] were trying to say’?” (as you characterize it) is because I was pretty sure I agreed with what you were saying out of the things I saw, but wasn’t really sure because I hadn’t read everything you said (there was a lot, and it was very spammy -highjacking the thread, precisely the reason you were banned) and wasn’t going to take the time to read everything and decide whether or not I agreed with it all or not. I’m not sure if that will make sense to you, but anyway.

    Second, about the “glue-sniffing”. It wasn’t coincidence, I never claimed it was. The part of his post where he said he’d “find some glue to huff” reminded me of the movie Airplane! where one of the characters said “looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue” (which I minorly misquoted in the thread.)

    Third, allow me to show you a few differences between myself and Allahpundit. It’s just my word, so believe it or not, because I can’t really offer hard evidence other than words, but here are a few facts. I’m from near Detroit, he’s from near NYC. I’m an evangelical, he’s an atheist. I think there are more, but I can’t think of them at the moment. :P Anyway, I don’t consider your accusation libelous or anything, which is why I took little time to debunk it earlier. To be honest I’m kind of flattered.

    I also took little time to debunk it because at various times you seemed to have been backing away from it. When AP first said he banned you you thanked him and said it was the first indication he banned you and not I. When you did your glue-sniffing connection post you said you were “just having a little fun”. Therefore I thought you were over thinking AP and I were one and the same. I guess not. And you’re still not. I hope this post clears it up.

    You’re probably going to take issue with what I said earlier in this comment about “spamming”, so I’ll say a couple words about that. Yes, apparently in their terms of use they define it the way one would define email spam. But on any forum or blog, it’s basically universal that spamming includes not only that definition but also thread hijacking, and I’ll leave that at how sulla described in (2) and (3) of his comment. Should Hot Air make their TOS clearer as to what constitutes spam? Perhaps, but they are also clear that they reserve the right to ban “for any reason”, and to be frank, common sense should have told you that you were overstepping your bounds.

    Thanks for reading and I hope there are no hard feelings towards me. To reiterate, I am not a sockpuppet of Allahpundit. I hope you can follow everything I say; I didn’t reread any of it.

  24. OneGyT,
    I take you at your word, and I thank you for taking the time to set the record straight and offer some constructive criticism. No hard feelings at all.

    Thanks again,
    Red Pill

  25. DanK,

    Exit question: does it diminish Christianity if the United States was a secular nation?

    I realize that it has been over two years since you left that exit question, but nevertheless I’d still like to update my prior response with this…

    Can tell me who said the following:

    The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.

    If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

    Hint: It wasn’t a “right-wing extremist”. It was a twentieth-century Democrat President.

    And he was right.

    That twentieth-century Democrat President obviously agreed with a nineteenth-century Supreme Court decision which said, “this is a Christian nation.”

    Now, does a “Christian nation” mean that only Christians are welcome here? Absolutely not. Everyone is welcome as long as they obey our laws (including immigration laws). But don’t go trying to destroy the moral foundation upon which our government rests. That is called demoralization, and it is step 1 of 4 on the way from freedom to a totalitarian, godless government.

    You won’t find the words “separation”, “church”, or “state” in the 1st Amendment to our United States Constitution.

    But you will find them in Article 124 of the 1936 Constitution of the U.S.S.R. (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics):

    the church in the U.S.S.R. is separated from the state

    And George Washington said:

    Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men & citizens.
