O.k… Remember, January 2017…when millions of women hit the streets to show their disdain…their absolute disgust…with Donald Trump being elected as the President of the United States.
The other day I read about HOW divided GROUPS OF WOMEN are…WHO…are SUPPOSE TO BE…fighting TOGETHER…against Donald Trump’s no good…wicked ass.
On 12/21/18, USA Today reported… “Local organizers of the Women’s March have distanced themselves from the New York-based group’s leadership amid questions of finances, control and ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and his anti-Semitic views.”
The New York bases group’s leadership, who are being heavily criticized include co-President, Tamika Mallory (Black), Carmen Perez (Hispanic) and Linda Sarsour (Palestinian-American-Muslim). Tamika Mallory is accused of attending the Saviours Day 2018 event held by Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, where she failed to immediately condemn comments made by Louis Farrakhan, that are viewed by many as anti-Semitic. On 12/23/18, the New York Times reports that a Brooklyn-based Jewish activist, Vanessa Wruble, was present at a meeting where… “Tamika Mallory, a black gun control activist, and Carmen Perez, a Latina criminal justice reform activist, replied that Jews needed to confront their own role in racism. Ms. Wruble, a central organizer of the march, says she agrees that white women, including Jews, should grapple with their racial privilege.”
In response to the recent criticism, on 11/20/18 the Women’s March National Organizer, Linda Sarsour, released a statement saying… “It’s become clear, amidst this media storm, that our values and our message have — too often — been lost. That loss caused a lot of harm, and a lot pain. We should have been faster and clearer in helping people understand our values and our commitment to fighting anti-semitism. We regret that. Trying to dismantle oppression, while working within systems of oppression, is hard. We are deeply invested in building better and deeper relationships with the Jewish community.”
Daniel Sieradski, a writer, activist who has worked over 20 years with Jewish organizations, wrote in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA)… “The same Jewish liberals who gave in to efforts by the Jewish right to divide the black and Jewish communities in the ’70s are back again to divide Jews from their would-be allies, and this time they’re dead set on being the breach in the dam that lets the Nazis through. So when, inspired by a president who openly blames prominent liberal Jews for that which white nationalists refer to as “white genocide,” a neo-Nazi walks into a shul and kills a bunch of liberal Jews, you’d think that our energy would stay focused on the existential threat in the White House — something actually leading to Jews being killed. Farrakhan …will never have the sway or influence the president has to inspire acts of anti-Semitic violence. Unlike President Trump and his white supremacist base, Farrakhan is not an existential threat to Jewish people.”
WHAT THE HELL!!! WHAT THE HELL!!!
Can we PLEEEEEEASE get over ourselves…for two *&^%$#* minutes…so we can STAY FOCUSED on the TRUE ENEMY here??? I’m just asking…
Why do we make it so easy for the DAMNED Devil…to enter our realm & do what he is a master at doing…DIVIDE!…DIVIDE!…& yeah…I almost forgot…DIVIDE???
Do we just sit around…chomping at the bit…JUST BECAUSE…we want to start some shit…WHEN…we should be working our asses off…TOGETHER…with that person…with that group…for a CAUSE SO MUCH GREATER THAN OURSELVES???
God looks at this as the “poor pitiful me” ocean… that people who have been through traumatic experiences…who have been marginalized in some…way…shape or form…get tricked into jumping into. Remember, if you live long enough…everybody IS going to go through some bad ass shit. And, if you are a child of God, it is par for the course. OH, YEAH!!! People are going to call you everything, but, a child of God. People are going to hate you without cause. So-called friends will betray you. People will to try to cause you great harm. Others will wish you dead and/or try to kill you. This is the way for a child of God. And, don’t be scared. Just listen to what I’m telling you. Jesus, went through all of this shit…& remember, they nailed Him to a cross. Now…
I’m not saying that you WILL be nailed to a cross, but Jesus did tell us this…
“16 I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles.19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
24 “The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!
26 “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.[b] 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:16-31)
Well, on behalf of the Heavenly Father, I’m here to tell you people…GET OVER YOURSELVES!…& look for the WILL OF GOD…in any situation. STOP what you are doing…sit your ass down…take a breath…& see past your own hands. See past yourself and seek understanding for the BIGGER PICTURE…THAT REVEALS THE WILL OF GOD!!!
You know this is the same shit that happened to the Israelites…who the Heavenly Father was trying to lead, through the wilderness… to the Promised Land. That’s right…the land of milk and honey. Well…millions of these grumbling…stiff-necked… “Me-Me-Me” centered…ass rascals didn’t make it. HELL NO! The Father got so sick of them, He allowed all kinds of bad shit…to happen to them. YES…HE…DID! Let’s see for ourselves…
7 The Lord said to Moses, “Go down at once! Your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have acted perversely; 8 they have been quick to turn aside from the way that I commanded them; they have cast for themselves an image of a calf, and have worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!’” 9 The Lordsaid to Moses, “I have seen this people, how stiff-necked they are. 10 Now let me alone, so that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them; and of you I will make a great nation.”
11 But Moses implored the Lord his God, and said, “O Lord, why does your wrath burn hot against your people, whom you brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce wrath; change your mind and do not bring disaster on your people. 13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, how you swore to them by your own self, saying to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants like the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have promised I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.’” 14 And the Lord changed his mind about the disaster that he planned to bring on his people.
15 Then Moses turned and went down from the mountain, carrying the two tablets of the covenant[b] in his hands, tablets that were written on both sides, written on the front and on the back. 16 The tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, engraved upon the tablets. 17 When Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.” 18 But he said,
“It is not the sound made by victors,
or the sound made by losers;
it is the sound of revelers that I hear.”
19 As soon as he came near the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, Moses’ anger burned hot, and he threw the tablets from his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain. 20 He took the calf that they had made, burned it with fire, ground it to powder, scattered it on the water, and made the Israelites drink it.
21 Moses said to Aaron, “What did this people do to you that you have brought so great a sin upon them?” 22 And Aaron said, “Do not let the anger of my lord burn hot; you know the people, that they are bent on evil. 23 They said to me, ‘Make us gods, who shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’ 24 So I said to them, ‘Whoever has gold, take it off’; so they gave it to me, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!”
25 When Moses saw that the people were running wild (for Aaron had let them run wild, to the derision of their enemies), 26 then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, “Who is on the Lord’s side? Come to me!” And all the sons of Levi gathered around him. 27 He said to them, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Put your sword on your side, each of you! Go back and forth from gate to gate throughout the camp, and each of you kill your brother, your friend, and your neighbor.’” 28 The sons of Levi did as Moses commanded, and about three thousand of the people fell on that day. 29 Moses said, “Today you have ordained yourselves[c] for the service of the Lord, each one at the cost of a son or a brother, and so have brought a blessing on yourselves this day.”
30 On the next day Moses said to the people, “You have sinned a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.” 31 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Alas, this people has sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold. 32 But now, if you will only forgive their sin—but if not, blot me out of the book that you have written.” 33 But the Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. 34 But now go, lead the people to the place about which I have spoken to you; see, my angel shall go in front of you. Nevertheless, when the day comes for punishment, I will punish them for their sin.”
35 Then the Lord sent a plague on the people, because they made the calf—the one that Aaron made. (Exodus 32:7-35)
Let’s keep going…
14 Then all the congregation raised a loud cry, and the people wept that night. 2 And all the Israelites complained against Moses and Aaron; the whole congregation said to them, “Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness! 3 Why is the Lord bringing us into this land to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become booty; would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 So they said to one another, “Let us choose a captain, and go back to Egypt.”
5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the Israelites. 6 And Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes 7 and said to all the congregation of the Israelites, “The land that we went through as spies is an exceedingly good land. 8 If the Lord is pleased with us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land that flows with milk and honey. 9 Only, do not rebel against the Lord; and do not fear the people of the land, for they are no more than bread for us; their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them.” 10 But the whole congregation threatened to stone them.
Then the glory of the Lord appeared at the tent of meeting to all the Israelites. 11 And the Lord said to Moses, “How long will this people despise me? And how long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs that I have done among them? 12 I will strike them with pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they.
13 But Moses said to the Lord, “Then the Egyptians will hear of it, for in your might you brought up this people from among them, 14 and they will tell the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that you, O Lord, are in the midst of this people; for you, O Lord, are seen face to face, and your cloud stands over them and you go in front of them, in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. 15 Now if you kill this people all at one time, then the nations who have heard about you will say, 16 ‘It is because the Lord was not able to bring this people into the land he swore to give them that he has slaughtered them in the wilderness.’ 17 And now, therefore, let the power of the Lord be great in the way that you promised when you spoke, saying,
18 ‘The Lord is slow to anger,
and abounding in steadfast love,
forgiving iniquity and transgression,
but by no means clearing the guilty,
visiting the iniquity of the parents
upon the children
to the third and the fourth generation.’
19 Forgive the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of your steadfast love, just as you have pardoned this people, from Egypt even until now.”
20 Then the Lord said, “I do forgive, just as you have asked; 21 nevertheless—as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord— 22 none of the people who have seen my glory and the signs that I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and yet have tested me these ten times and have not obeyed my voice, 23 shall see the land that I swore to give to their ancestors; none of those who despised me shall see it. 24 But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me wholeheartedly, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it. 25 Now, since the Amalekites and the Canaanites live in the valleys, turn tomorrow and set out for the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea.” (Numbers 14:1-25)
And, guess what??? The Heavenly Father changes not. He is the same yesterday, today & forever. So… If you get in His way…& thwart His will because of your own SELFISH motives…He will punish even His children…for doing such a sinful thing. He will punish you…EVEN unto death…if He so chooses. You’ve been warned!
Now, with the Women Movements against Donald Trump, Donald Trump’s Administration and his policies…these movements need to fight onward. Donald Trump…is the Devil’s brother…as sure as I am not Snoopy. (I’m sorry, I love Snoopy and I like to give him a spotlight, now & again) O.K.!… O.K.!… Anyway…
As I way saying, Donald Trump is evil incarnate. So… We as God’s children, need to stand-up and shout out against…get out and march against…get up and vote against…every evil ass action that Donald Trump takes in order to steal from…destroy…and to kill God’s children. We must not let anyone…or anybody TAKE US OFF OUR MARK! Now…
God is not saying that you might not have legitimate beefs against one another…within the groups of women who are fighting against Donald Trump. But, REMEMBER PEOPLE…there is a time and a place for everything. Many of these disagreements NEED to also be laid on the table and hashed out. NO DOUBT! NO DOUBT! But, now…IS NOT THE TIME FOR THIS SHIT! NOW…is the time to FIGHT…FIGHT & FIGHT SOME MORE…against Donald Trump. We must fight against him until he no longer has the power he presently has…that enables him to inflict such hurt, harm & destruction…on SOOOOOO many people.
What Daniel Sieradski said…is right on the money. DONALD TRUMP…is the one WE NEED to be battling against at this very moment. 24/7. Shi-i-i-i-i-t… We need to be strategizing against his rotten ass…even in our dreams. YES!!! Make every moment COUNT…PEOPLE! (including the “sleepy” ones)
Donald Trump & his minions need their dark-hearted…wicked asses put in check & kept…in check. Their mission is to do everything…they can…to tear down what is good about this country. That’s it and that’s all. But…
If God’s children are busy scurrying around like rats in the sewer…fighting & biting at each other…HOW WILL TRUMP BE STOPPED??? HOW WILL IT HAPPEN…PEOPLE??? Well…
I for one…choose to keep my eyes on the prize. And, the prize for me…is following the “Will of God” …period. I refuse to let the Devil or his human workers…take me off my task. I REFUSE!!! And, for God’s sake, I pray that the rest of you…the children of God…CHOOSE to do the same.
May God Bless You & Keep You…In These Trying Times.
With Nothing But, Love For You,
