For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12. This is the real battle that people like Phil Robertson face. He is in a fight that is bigger than he is but he has an advocate. We all know who wins this war in the end. Beyond this aspect of the fight there is the fact that organizations like G. l. A. A. D., the N.A.A.C.P., and lets throw in N.O.W., or National Organization Of Women , for good measure, really do not care about the groups that they represent as much as they care about the greater goal of insuring the triumph of the Democratic Party and the political left. If they really cared about homosexuals, blacks, and women then they would be consistent. For example they would not just go after Robertson but they would also go after people on the left who have said or done offensive things against gays like Alec Baldwin, or the Democratic operatives who made anti-Gay comments against an openly Gay Republican candidate in Pennsylvania. The N.A.A.C.P. would not only bash Phil Robertson but go after people like Joe Biden, Senator Robert Byrd, when he was alive, or Bill Clinton who have made actual racist comments rather than implied ones. They would protect black Conservatives from the racist comments and actions that they constantly have to endure from the political left. Last but not least N.O.W. would not only go after a Robert Packwood, Clarence Thomas, or Herman Cain but just as vigorously go after a Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy.
They would also stand up for Conservative women like Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann when they are treated like harlots by the political left. Then you can throw the mainstream media into this poisonous mix. When someone like Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Al Gore, Obama, or Hillary Clinton says or does something scandalous we might read about it if we are lucky in the grocery store tabloids, conservative news sources or hear about it on conservative talk radio. If you read or hear about it in the mainstream media it is only because they can't ignore it anymore and if they do run the story it might get one day of coverage. If on the other hand a Republican or Conservative does something offensive it will be headline news 24/7 for at least a month if not more in the state run, oh excuse me, I mean the mainstream media. Last but not least, we all know that if Phil was a Muslim saying these things the left would not say a word. The sad thing is that the left is winning the battle and fundamentally changing society. We have no opposition Party and too many Americans are not paying attention or are just too scared to speak up. Until this changes we are forced to look to that final triumph of good over evil.
