|Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent god of the|
Aztecs, a combination of bird and rattlesnake.
He's associated with the wind, an appropriate
connection for a party reaping the whirlwind!
On his show yesterday, Rush discussed the Stalinist tactics used by Democrat leadership imposing leftist insanity on every Democrat member of the House. Since a number of Democrats represent districts much more conservative than the party, these folks have to choose between political suicide by abandoning their constituents or political murder by the likes of Nancy Pelosi and AOC who are threatening them if they deviate one inch from the party line. It's madness! And it illustrates this quote from the ancient world.
"Whom the gods would destroy, they first drive mad."
The origin of this quote is somewhat ambiguous. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow put it in the mouth of Prometheus in his poem The Masque of Pandora. But various iterations exist in the ancient Greek and Rome. The one I think clearly identifies what's happening in the Democrat party is a line the Greek playwright Sophocles puts in the mouth of Antigone, his tragic heroine:
"Evil appears as good in the minds of those whom gods lead to destruction."Consider the posturing of leading Democrats these days and their talking points which more and more are phrased in moral, and even religious, terms. Many leading Democrats are talking about "morality." Building a wall is "immoral." Trying to limit a woman's right to kill her unborn baby is "unchristian." Letting a newborn baby die of neglect is a moral choice approved by God.
Watch Tucker Carlson's opening monologue from last night (first ten minutes of the video below). He's absolutely on target when he says the Democrat party has become a "cult." In their madness, they seem to believe what they say -- that they are on a mission from God to restore "morality" to the United States. They do it by banning straws, controlling cow farts, and...oh yes...celebrating infanticide.
They are following gods all right: Baal, Molech, Astarte, Kali, the Aztec's Quetzalcoatl, and finally Lucifer himself. It would be instructive for them to remember that these "gods" use men only to drag them to unending fire in the end. As Archbishop Joseph Naumann, head of the USCCB pro-life office, warned a few days ago:
“Advocating for intrinsically evil acts, like abortion, is a serious immoral act — one that involves grave matter, the prerequisite for the commission of a mortal sin.”God is not fooled by posturing and empty talk about morality. He will judge us by how we treat the most vulnerable. Who is more vulnerable than the baby in the womb and newborns? Pray and fast for those teetering on the brink. All their money and power won't save them on Judgment Day if they die in unrepentant mortal sin, an outcome no Christian would wish on his fiercest enemy.
