In the aftermath of the Holocaust, many well-intentioned people around the world wondered how it could have happened. And the question for our time is could something like it ever happen again?
Shortly after World War II ended, the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) penned the following now well-known poetic piece about the cowardice of German intellectuals and certain clergy (including, by his own admission, himself) following the Nazis’ rise to power and subsequent incremental purging of their chosen targets, group after group:
First, they came for the Communists,
And I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist;
Then they came for the Socialists,
And I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists,
And I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews,
And I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak out for me.
Although Jews remain targets of hate as they have been for centuries, modern times call for modern groups of “villains,” and the radical left has now found and focused on new targets: Christians and Christianity.
This past March, conservative author David Horowitz released his book entitled DARK AGENDA: The War to Destroy Christian America, an impassioned plea for the restoration of political sanity in America, a perspective that made America great by respecting the faiths of our fathers and mothers. It brings vital insights into the war against Christianity and names the global radicals, leftist Democrats, and money-hungry fat cats of Hollywood and Wall Street responsible for it.
It has been reviewed & praised by a number of commentators, including Trucker Carlson of Fox; Tom Coburn, Senior Advisor to Convention of States Project and Former US Senator; Gary Bauer, former Reagan Chief Domestic Policy Adviser, former president Family Research Council, president American Values; Michael Youssef, Ph.D., author of The Third Jihad; Bill Donohoe, President, Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights; former Gpv. Mike Huckabee; and Alan Dershowitz.
The book, written by a Jew , is an extraordinary look into the left’s calculated efforts to create a godless, heathen American society — and how these efforts must be stopped.
The book warns that the rising attacks on Christians and their beliefs threaten all Americans of any religion. The liberal radical-leftist establishment and their radical allies envision a new millennium in which Christianity is banished. But Judeo-Christian values are at the very root of America’s democracy. Kill off such values and all of our freedoms could perish.
The book examines how our elites — increasingly secular and atheist — are pushing a radical agenda:
- How the left trashes Christian doctrines critical to the American Republic, much like radical Islam’s war on “infidel” cultures like ours.
- Why the left fights to keep prayer and religion out of public schools, and how those efforts fly in the face of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson’s intentions.
- How fanatical liberals helped create the religious right by targeting evangelicals and believing Catholics and other conservatives.
- How Barack Obama’s ultra-liberal agenda galvanized the anti-God, anti-religious left.
- The violent and shocking manifesto of Planned Parenthood founder (and promoter of eugenics) Margaret Sanger who advocated the use of dynamite to promote “revolutionary solidarity.”
Well worth a read.
But very scary stuff!
