Tacitus, (born ad 56—died c. 120), was a Roman orator and public official, probably the greatest historian and one of the greatest prose stylists who wrote in the Latin language. He observed, “when men are full of envy, they disparage everything, whether it be good or bad.” This, I believe, explains why Trump derangement syndrome has exploded across the county since he was elected.
With what we are going through in our medical emergency, I have begun to observe a change in the tone and character of the political relations within the country. We are becoming nicer; cooperating more with the each other. Democrats and Republicans are getting along better. This is one of the benefits for this health crisis.
It is as if the peace of Jesus has begun to settle over the country. In the hinterland, neighbors are looking out for neighbors. Chick-fil-A is bringing sandwiches to healthcare workers and pizza shops are delivering free pies. Fast food restaurants provide free lunches for school children.
A 6-year-old girl is teaching her 4-year-old brother a bible verse to allay his fears. A young woman shopped for seniors who called her over to their car because they were fearful of leaving their car to grocery shop. We are truly a good people.
Unfortunately, not all politicians, the news media and elite movie stars are on board. The Trump derangement syndrome is alive and well in the Progressive camp. Ilhan Omar mocked the first daughter’s tweet suggesting how quarantined families can make the best out of their predicament. Omar tweeted, “Thinking of all the families separated forcefully by your father’s policies today.”
“Rep. Rashida Tlaib appeared to denigrate President Trump‘s proclamation for a National Day of Prayer amid the coronavirus pandemic…” The New Consensus tweeted, “Today we’re releasing a pandemic economics proposal that supports demand-AND supply-side of the economy, $1000 BIWEEKLY, suspend all debt & rent, open the Fed discount window to small biz, unleash non-debt monetary expansion.”
Vote these horrible people out of office and stand with the peace of Jesus.
