Between Privilege and Providence

I’ve been thinking about “white privilege”. Nobody seems to know what it means. I’ve been asking. The best anybody has been able to come up with is to call it an advantage that white people have. They assume this advantage comes from racism. SJWs play the race card like high schoolers play Call of Duty.

Naturally, I have to ask, “Where’s the finish line?” And, usually I get a vacant expression from the person, as they hem, haw, stutter, and finally blurt, “What are you talking about? What does a finish line have to do with it?”
Let me explain. Privilege implies advantage, and advantage implies a head start. So, if there’s a head start, then there has got to be a finish line. People who use the term “white privilege” have never really thought it through. They are so used to assuming that the have the moral authority in any conversation, that they’ve never taken the time to see their reasoning through to the logical conclusion. Between you and me, that’s also why they’re liberal.
The advantage has to be “pointed” at something. So, I ask again, “Where is the finish line?” Eventually, the liberal will exclaim, “White privilege gives you an unfair advantage to get a good job and be successful.” Once again, the SJWs show that they are obsessed with other peoples money, because all socialists are. They are the greediest and most envious people you will meet, because they spend all their time worrying about O-P-M, other people’s money.
Every socialist argument is a way to talk about O-P-M. It is the core obsession of socialism. But, what if the finish line was something loftier then O-P-M, like character, literacy, or holiness. 

Anyone who uses the term “White Privilege” has outed themselves as a greedy, socialist pig. See, they take it for granted that the best thing in life is to be financially successful. That’s what they mean by “advantage”, “head start”, and privilege. In other words they are materialistic, envious, and ungrateful for what they have been given.
The entire philosophy of “White Privilege” is to empower the greedy to take from the “advantaged”. It is designed to justify raising taxes, affirmative action, asking White tenured professors to voluntarily step down. In short, the term “white privilege” is a way for victims to air their grievances and affix guilt to the guiltless, motivated by class and racial envy, in an effort to sabotage and shame the recipient of “whiteness”.

This week a Professor of Mathematics at Illinois claiming that the ability to solve algebra and geometry equations “operates as whiteness”. Oh yeah, sure, I remember Pythagoras proving that 25 hundred years ago. It seems like this professor has veered from the hard sciences, and has a soft skull. What is “whiteness” anyway, and how does it figure into mathematics?

Furthermore, isn’t it just a little condescending to suggest that non-whites are bad at math? Wouldn’t that be universally decried as racist if a white male said it? How do these people get away with the insane and illogical? They get away with it, because liberals don’t have to see their convictions through to their logical ends. It just has to feel right, and come from the heart. I, for one, want to question the hearts and minds of people who perpetuate the soft racism of lower expectations; and then to justify their own twisted beliefs, they punish guiltless whites.

If privilege is determined by the finish line, then non-whites have access to privilege too. You just have to determine a different finish line. What about “Athletic Privilege, which unfairly privileges those who are in shape, practice hard, and possess natural physical abilities over those who don’t? What about “Beauty Privilege”, which unfairly privileges those who work out, eat right, wear fashionable clothing, have good health, and possess natural physical gifts over those who don’t? What about “Friendship Privilege”, which unfairly privileges those who are light hearted, loyal, outgoing, and funny, over those who aren’t. And, what about “Liberal Privilege, which unfairly privileges those who whine and complain about everybody else, seek out like minded crybabies on college campuses, break laws and commit acts of violence against Trump supporters, and yet avoid arrest, over those who respect others views, pay taxes, and work for everything they have. The list of alternative privileges could go on.

All told every American has access to privilege that the rest of the world can only drool over. If you have hot and cold running water, access to motorized transportation, and electricity, then you are more privileged than 97% of the people on planet Earth. We should all be thanking God that we were born in the USA. This country confers on its citizen untold political benefits, freedoms, and access to opportunities for wealth. We have to recognize our “American Privilege.” 

As a Christian, I believe that God gave every person to a specific family, in a specific cultural context, and to a specific land. That is called Providence. We owe Him gratitude for what He has given us, not grievance over what He chose to give others. Class and racial envy do not come from the better angels of our nature, they come from hate. America haters have to stir up those feelings to distract Americans from their god given privilege.

And, now we get to the crux of it- Socialists, Leftist, and Race Baiters are filled with hate. They are aggrieved and want to take revenge. That’s why they will lose, because the American people love winners. We love the loving, and we still respect loyalty to family and flag. As long as there is an America will be “American Privilege”, because we are exceptional!

God bless the USA, and make disciples!

America Is A Target

*Editor’s Note: This article is a part of an unused chapter from the book, The Battle For Main Street: Reclaiming America’s Heritage available for presale.

Why is America a target?

The devil hates America. He is our truest enemy, and we are definitely wrestling with dark powers when we try to start a revival save her. Think on this: the devil loves disease, poverty, hunger, thirst, enslavement, child torture, ceaseless war, and keeping people imprisoned in false religions. Because of the USA there is less of it in the world. We, as a people, are the most generous ever to walk the face of the planet.

We are great at inventing and adapting to the shifting of society. We have devised ingenious systems of agriculture, medicine, clean water, transportation and communication. God has used us as a gift of grace across the globe, bringing help, compassion, and the gospel where it has never before landed. Of course the devil wants to destroy us, look how God has used America to counter his dastardly work.

Satan has a plan for this country, make no mistake. He’d like to see us reduced to all the other third world slum-holes, where his agency holds sway. As Christians we have a duty to our homeland, we have a commission to (dare I say it?) make America great again. What makes America great is a strong church. What makes America great is moral individuals sacrificing for one another. What makes America great is all of us renewing a spirit of friendship, understanding, and loyalty to our fellow Americans. In a word, what makes America great is God’s unmerited, but much sought, favor.

Fortunately, God has given us a spirit of Power, and of Love, and of a Sound Mind! He has given us a way of escape! The tide which threatens to drown us in secularism and social isolation, can be turned by the gravity of the Father of Lights. Fear not! Our doom is not upon us yet, and it need not ever come at all. Just as Abram pursued God to the place which he would be shown, so must we follow the Lord into deeper cultural expression of the Moral Law which He showed us. We must follow him deeper into His love.

Love of God lead christian men across the mighty Atlantic, in search of a land where they could worship Him as they saw fit. Loving God knit together as one, a patchwork of 13 colonial powers. And, love of God brought us back from the terror of civil war, to once again unite us in the holy pursuit of a nation where God is our God and we are His people.

If we re-establish a godly culture, our future will be secure. The time we spend together, in this book, offers a way back to God and a strategy for renewing our Heritage as a Christian nation. First we must realize that it started with Him. Only then can we have a firm foundation on which to build a godly culture.

My goal is to tap you into a centuries old American tradition of Christian struggle against religious persecution and secular sloth. I am going to draft you into the oldest war- good versus evil. By the time we are done, you will be a full fledged initiate in a not-so-secret society called Christendom. Take up your cross, lift the horn to your lips, and let slip the dogs of war!

Therefore, I invite you to sing these words, taken from the fourth stanza of our Star Spangled Banner, whenever you hear the tune to the National Anthem, instead of the traditional first verse.

 

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand

Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!

Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Fourth Stanza,

The Star Spangled Banner,

Written by Francis Scott Key

It begins!
