Don’t Ever Back Down from A Political Fight
Like a trampled spring and a polluted well
Is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked (Prov. 25:26).
One of the things I like about Pres. Trump that he doesn’t back down in a political fight. For decades I’ve watched Republicans back down over policy issues, and Democrats have taken advantage of the perceived weakness.
Democrats know that Republicans will almost always back down if pressure is put on them by the Democrats and media. Pres. Trump most often doubles down on Twitter. This infuriates liberals and the media and upsets Republicans. They claim that “he’s not acting presidential.”
When you’re in a fight over life and death issues, how money is spent, and how much control the government has over our lives, I’m not looking for some subjective “presidential” response; I want someone who’s going to fight legislatively.
This is not to say that Pres. Trump has done everything I and others want him to do, but he’s gotten more done than past Republican Presidents have been able to accomplish. One would think that a majority Republican Congress would get behind the street fighter and bring the needed drastic changes to our government. Unfortunately, they’re afraid of what the media will write about them and Chuck Schumer and Nany Pelosi will say about them.
Their actions remind of these scene from a Seinfeld episode:
This brings me to the Olympics and the bullying tactics by homosexuals and their advocates. Apparently, the Winter Olympic Games weren’t “diverse” enough. Fox News Executive Vice President John Moody wrote a column that stated the Olympics (and every other sport) should “focus on the winner of the race, not the race of the winner.”
In an Op-Ed, Moody pleaded for sports fans to forget about race and sexual orientation as they root for Team U.S.A. and to focus only on their superior abilities. In his February 8 editorial, Moody noted that the motto of the Olympics is “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” but that too many are seemingly more interested in turning the games “Darker, Gayer, Different.” This, he says, is not a good way to win medals.
Moody wonders if our Olympians were chosen at least in part because of their “diversity” instead of being excellent at their sport.
“Were our Olympians selected because they’re the best at what they do, or because they’re the best publicity for our current obsession with having one each from Column A, B and C?” Moody asked. (Breitbart)
Moody went on to make this excellent comparative point:
Insisting that sports bow to political correctness by assigning teams quotas for race, religion or sexuality is like saying that professional basketball goals will be worth four points if achieved by a minority in that sport – white guys, for instance – instead of the two or three points awarded to black players, who make up 81 percent of the NBA. Any plans to fix that disparity? Didn’t think so.
Keep in mind that this is an opinion piece that happens to be spot on. Even so, Fox News removed Moody’s column after protests by the perpetually offended crowd and issued the following statement
John Moody’s column does not reflect the views or values of FOX News and has been removed.
Once you back down from a political fight, it’s almost impossible to make up the lost ground. The perpetually offended bullies are never satisfied. sure enough, the American homosexual Olympians competing in South Korea flaunted their homosexuality publicly daring anyone to criticize them.
