That’s some reversal of the true facts of the situation. Old Scratch has nothing on Donald Trump when it comes to fibbing. As usual, for Lively as for other supporters of Trump’s new order, the elites are the enemy – even though with his avowed wealth, you don’t get much more elite than Donald Trump.
“I’m encouraging Christians not to fall prey to the false-reality being spun by the elites against the Trump administration and our nation.”
Important contextual note –> When you hear this, keep in mind Scott Lively also says gay marriage caused Noah’s flood.
There is no reality more false than Trump’s, of course, and it’s Kellyanne Conway, not some liberal or progressive, laying claim to “alternative facts” or like Katrina Pierson’s “He hasn’t changed his position on immigration. He’s changed the words that he is saying.”
But hey, as Bill Maher said earlier, the big (R) covers all such fabrications and fantasies. You can literally say anything when you’re a conservative. It’s not like everyone didn’t know it was raining at Trump’s inauguration even as he claimed God cleared the skies for him to speak. Yet he says it anyway. At every opportunity. As though endless repetition will make it true. And maybe it will.
Lively titled his article (all in caps because caps make things truer, apparently): “THE OBAMA/SOROS/MEDIA SHADOW GOVERNMENT AND THE ILLUSION OF CHAOS.” Here conservatism’s bogey man, George Soros, rears his head yet again at the head of a cabal of spooks:
“If we let the spooks deceive us into stampeding, they’ll run us right off the cliff. They’re called spooks for a reason.”
But don’t get the idea that it’s spooks Scott “Kill the Gays” Lively sees as the real enemy. Oh no, that would be “gay” spooks:
No group is better at this satanic strategy than the “gay” political movement, which was an unstated reason why open homosexuals were never allowed into the intelligence agencies in the history of the nation, a policy upheld by the none other than the 9th Circuit US Appeals Court in the 1990 case, “High Tech Gays v. Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office.” (Indicating just how dangerous to our nation the idea of homosexual spooks was even to the farthest left-wing judges in the country: J. Edgar Hoover was by no means an anomaly.) But then along came Bill Clinton who issued Executive Order 12968 on August 2, 1995, opening the intelligence agencies and top secret security clearance to the Machiavellian “gay” network.
Oh dear. We’re in deep here, aren’t we? Machiavellian gay networks. And Lively apparently has some intimiate knowledge of gay matters for he assures us,
“My guess based solely on my knowledge of the ‘gay’ movement and Obama’s personal priorities, is that the today’s alphabet soup of intelligence agencies could easily be condensed to just four letters: LGBT, since that’s almost certainly who’s driving the agenda evidenced in the ongoing treasonous sabotage of the Trump administration.”
So apparently Trump the strongman, who is so tough (his own words) is being bullied by gay spooks. Will the bullying of Donald Trump never end?
Not if the gay-enabling mainstream media has anything to do with it!
“More critical to the process of creating the false reality by which the far left has steered American public policy for decades is the mainstream media. Again, an industry so heavily dominated by ‘gays’ and homosexualists that there is no longer even a pretense of balance on stories related to LGBT issues.”
Well, nobody hates gays more than Scott Lively, so it hardly comes as any surprise that he wants Trump to adopt his genuine and proven to work “Separation of LGBT and State” plan.
Scott Lively concludes by urging his fellow fake Christians to stand up to anti-Trump radicalism:
My prayer is that President Trump will awaken to the correlation of anti-Trump radicalism on the left with the “gay” movement and realize that on virtually any issue one can name the most aggressive liars and agitators are homosexuals and their closest surrogates, and that these people absolutely, positively cannot be placated (just ask the Boy Scouts of America). In other words, there is a spiritual dimension to the culture war in which the key common denominator is LGBT affiliation.
It would be nice for a change to see a Religious Right argument framed around some of the important issues facing our country. Gay spooks is hardly one of them. Selling out to Vladimir Putin is. Betraying American democracy is. Trying to deligitimize the press is.
All that matters to Lively and his cohorts on the right is hatred of gays. If only he were as worried about equally serious crimes in the law of Moses, like cutting your hair or mixing fabrics. If he was, you just know, somehow, those shorn fabric mixers would be gay.
