The inevitably Marxist zoo XIV: The enemies of Churchill...
By Michael Moriarty
One of Winston Churchill's many, finest moments was, of course, his "Finest Hour" speech.
Following the fall of France to the Nazis in 1940, the Prime Minister implored his people to not despair or fail in their fight with Hitler… for if they should … "then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age, made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science."
The italics are mine because the "perverted science" of eugenics is what Churchill was referring to -- and what now makes him a prophet!
It is not a coincidence that both the Clintons and Obamas have either inferred or utterly proclaimed their dislike and perhaps hatred of Winston Churchill. We shouldn't be surprised.
Both families are known Progressives and there will be no Progress apparently without eugenics!
Hillary Clinton, in her autobiography, Living History, echoed Churchill's famous indictment of eugenics with her equivalent damnation of the Koresh sect at Waco, Texas, calling it "perverse religion".
Was it a tribute to Churchill's insight or was it a belligerent riposte to the Prime Minister's indictment of eugenics as a perverse science?
The pro-abortion sympathies of the Secretary of State and her support of Planned Parenthood are a fair indication of her affinity for Margaret Sanger and Margaret Sanger's known love of eugenics.
The Obamas have been much more candid about their anti-Churchill feelings. They kicked a bust of the Great Knight out of the Oval office. Sent it back to Britain.
Hmmm … the Clintons, with the exception of President Clinton's sex life, have always been much subtler than the Obamas. They've also made many more claims to being religious.
The "Biblical Clintons" are what I had planned to discuss in this editorial … but … the faith in abortion which the former President and First Lady share with the present President and First Lady … well … perhaps, and because of that affinity, all four are Biblical -- in their own particular ways.
Hillary Clinton, during her run for the Presidency, declared her admiration for the Biblical "Esther" of the Old Testament. If you know the story of Esther, it reflects, rather insightfully, upon Hillary's reasons for marrying Bill.
Esther was a Persian King's "favorite" among many wives.
Esther used her position to save her own, enslaved people.
Well, even Sarah Palin, who may have more justification for claiming sisterhood with the Biblical Esther – having proven her commitment to save her own child from medical advisers who counsel abortion - attests that Hillary "broke the glass ceiling" for women.
So, Hillary's "People" are all members of the female sex.
That would, of course, also make Sarah Palin's "People" just old fashioned, traditional, non-Progressive Americans … or as the Progressives are now calling them, "un-American".
William Clinton, though a repeatedly self-proclaimed "Progressive Baptist", is of the un-enslaved sex and … well, therefore … he's a "kind of Persian".
The story of Esther is a remarkable legend which Hillary is now trying to live out.
That Hillary's commitment to legalized abortion may prove to be utterly heretical to all of Judeo-Christianity?! Well, we'll see.
As for the Obamas, they're still looking for a church to attend in D.C. and, it would appear, they are in no hurry about it. The Stimulus, Cap 'n Trade and the HealthCare Bill are far more urgent matters. It appears that all that legislation should have been passed yesterday -- or at least before the August break.
I think Churches and Temples for Barack Obama have always been just a small but integral obligation among his duties as a "Community Organizer".
It's kind of "get 'em where they kneel and you have them for life".
He's not so much a Christian as he is The One who passed through the Christians … and the Muslims … and the Americans … etc.
While Hillary Clinton is living a Bible story, President Barack Obama increasingly appears to be his own Bible.
President Clinton, because he just can't help wanting to be remembered as a "good guy", might end up "The Biggest and Most Stubborn of The Blue Dog Democrats".
If the Clintons don't wake up in time, they'll end not as a metaphorical King and Esther but as Ahab and Jezebel. If you read that particular story in the Bible, you'll see the terrible price that can be paid for legalizing and romanticizing the rights of infanticide.
Oh, the quick fixes of power and money have always come to men and women like the Clintons and the Obamas because those rewards are what measure "progress" for them.
For Progressives like the Clintons and the Obamas, however, their faith in death as frequently the best solution to the toughest problems of life might come to haunt them.
The tough problem of their own misplaced faith in "Progress" brings those ole Biblical dogs out.
There's a reading assignment that might do the Progressives a lot more good than skimming the very bills they're in such a hurry to shove down both our throats and our pocket books.
It's even worth a second look, President Clinton!
Oh, I know Rev. Billy Graham called President Clinton an "evangelist" … but, gee, the husband of the present Secretary of State still acts and sounds more like a very charming and attractive King Ahab than any of Christ's disciples or the Old Testament's prophets.
Neither President Clinton nor President Obama are the Elijah or "Eli" our Lord called out to on the cross.
They might think they are … but that line of reasoning is what got them into their increasingly tight fixes in the first place.
When Christ pointed to the little children and said, "As you do unto the least of these, so you do unto me" … the "least of these" obviously means gestating infants. No child is more a "least of these" than when in the womb.
After 36 years of legalized abortion, that's about 50 million "least of these" that are dead because of the latter-day Ahabs and Jezebels who pawn themselves off as King David and Queen Esther.
I've often called Sarah Palin the coming American Churchill.
In any case, the enemies of Churchill have never succeeded.
Not even the creator of the Soviet Union could defy Churchill from the grave. Joseph Stalin's "Iron Curtain", as Churchill defined the deadly dividing line that stretched from the Baltic to the Adriatic, fell!!
Historically … and Biblically … Churchill will always have the last laugh … and he who laughs last … not only knows History … he knows the Judeo-Christian God … and therefore laughs with profoundest certainty.
