Hypocrisy is alive and well
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
According to my concordance, Christ talked about hypocrites exactly 20 times. And it is the sheer hypocrisy that galls me most about our modern-day elected Republicans, who let Drumpf (his ancestral name) get away with things that would make their heads explode if it was Obama or any Democrat doing or saying those things.
For instance, can you imagine their reaction if Obama said that he could grab a woman by her (genitals) because he was famous? You can google the show, but years ago he said on Howard Stern's show that he used to go backstage in highly restricted areas at the Miss Teen USA pageants to see the naked girls, and he was entitled to because he owned the building and was authorized to “inspect the premises.”
But this letter is about hypocrisy. Can you imagine Republican reactions if Obama said he and brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un were “in love?”
Now after saying there was no collusion repeatedly, he admitted in a recent interview that, sure, he would take information (“dirt” on political opponents) from hostile foreign governments if it helped his ability to hold power at all costs. That is the textbook definition of collusion.
If there was a thief in the neighborhood who robbed neighbors when they were on vacation, and everybody knew who it was, there comes a time to start blaming the 10 neighbors that are his friends, drinks his free drinks and hangs around his fancy pool, knowing where the money came from.
Trump supporters are selling their souls seeing the depths of this man and still accepting him, even empowering him. Any integrity they ever had is gone. Just know Christ is watching.
