Now a new king arose over Egypt. He said to his people, “Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come, let us deal craftily with them, or else they will multiply. When war eventually comes, they will join themselves to our enemies, and fight against us …
So the rulers appointed taskmasters over the people to afflict them with hard labor. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more they spread out, so that the Egyptians were in dread of the sons of Israel.
We have witnessed in the past several years actions undertaken by certain dark elements within the security apparatus that are so patently evil, unjust, and nightmarish that they belong in a Kafka novel or Stalin’s Russia. For years many of us, myself included, were unable or unwilling to open our eyes to see it. It all seemed too unimaginable to contemplate in America. But now we see it with our own eyes. And that which has been seen cannot be unseen.
This isn’t about Right vs. Left. This is about supporters of liberty and fundamental, God-given human rights – including the right to be left alone, free from tyranny – vs. the supporters of surveillance, centralized control, and unbridled power. This is about liberty, righteousness, and justice. This is about whether Good wins over Evil. (Spoiler: It must, and it will.)
This is a battle over whether you, an American, whether naturally born or adopted, whether black or white, young or old, whether farmer, trucker, entrepreneur, or parent, will have a voice in your future, in the future of your children, in that of your children’s children, and indeed the nation itself.
Because if they can come within a hairs’ breath of taking out a sitting president, and successfully destroy the lives and livelihoods of hundreds who support him, then they can easily get at you and me. In the world they are creating no one is safe and they know it. Fear and intimidation are the coins of their realm.
You must no longer remain silent. To preserve your freedoms, you must act to protect them. To protect them, you must personally engage in the conflict unfolding around us. I cannot promise that this effort will be pain free. But there are some things – pearls of great price – worth the suffering and cost required to achieve them.
They fear you, and thus they hate you. They are desperate, as their last flailing actions prove more and more each day. They will fight against you, but they will not prevail. You stand on the side of right and truth, while they hide behind their illegitimate power. They sling arrows from within a castle built of lies upon lies, and thus made of sand. The storm will wash it all away.
They will grow exhausted trying to protect themselves from discovery and exposure, but the dominos are beginning to wobble. Once they start to fall, they will turn their swords away from you and onto each other. We’re already watching it unfold. Take courage and do not fear.
Resistance is power.
