Political ideology can drive the masses to do horrific things. Just look at how ideology drove the Germans to slaughter millions and demonise the Jews. Look at how Marxism resulted in the Gulag and the death of tens of millions of people. Look at how wild, frenzied, politicised crowds can unleash such great evil.
But I must insist that political ideology alone cannot explain all this. Indeed, as a Christian I must look deeper. And there is no doubt in my mind that so much of these ugly political manifestations are in fact rooted in a spiritual source. This evil and this ugliness, this rage and this hate, comes straight out of the pit of hell.
There is no other way to explain such barbarism, such malignancy, such utter hatred and bile. There is sheer demonic activity behind so much of this. Anyone who calls himself a biblical Christian should have no problem at all in accepting such truths.
We know there is an evil, personal devil, who along with his demonic forces, is causing all sorts of havoc on planet earth. Jesus certainly spoke much of his reality. He said that the “thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy” whereas he “came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).
Satan is the polar opposite of Jesus Christ. God is about love, life and beauty – Satan is about hatred, death and ugliness. And we sure have seen that on display in the past day. So what am I talking about? Just look at the pictures. Go ahead, look at the pictures! What I have to say pales in comparison with what you can see here:
There are over two dozen photos of the peace and love brigade in action here. You know, the secular left which goes on and on about the need for acceptance, tolerance, diversity and inclusion. You can see all that and more in these pictures. The love and tolerance just oozes out of these shots.
They have to do of course with the demonic hatred which has spilled onto British streets at the news of the death of Margaret Thatcher. The secular left has hit the streets to show us about the acceptance and love they are always talking about.
And it sure don’t look pretty. After you have looked at the pictures for a while, let me fill you in on a few more details. This is how one newspaper account reports the activities of the love brigade: “Hundreds took to the streets as macabre ‘Thatcher death parties’ were held late into the night across the country, organised by critics of the ‘Iron Lady.’
“Smashed shop windows, paint bombs and police being attacked were all consequences of the Left’s sick ‘celebration’ of Baroness Thatcher’s death from a stroke yesterday morning. In Brixton, south London, riot police were deployed as the crowds, which had been drinking since 5pm, started to become more aggressive smashing shop fronts and throwing paint bombs.
“In Liverpool, flares and fireworks were set off outside Lime Street Station by revellers, while in Bristol, seven police officers were injured – one seriously – as violence erupted at a street party of 200 people and police were pelted with bottles, cans and rubbish….
“In Bristol, six officers were injured – one seriously – when violence flared at a gathering to celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher. Wheelie bins were set on fire by the mob and a police car was damaged by the flying missiles. Some of the injured police needed hospital treatment and one male officer was still detained today with a neck injury. One man was arrested for violent disorder and it took police more than two hours to restore calm. It was not until 3am that most of the police units sent to the scene were stood down.
“The party had started outside the Chelsea Inn in Easton, which is one of Bristol’s poorest and multi-cultural neighbourhoods. The air was thick with cannabis smoke as revellers toasted the death of the Iron Lady, chanting; ‘Maggie Thatcher, Maggie Thatcher, she’s not living anymore. She’s not living anymore’….
“Meanwhile, in Glasgow, more than 300 people gathered in the city centre for a street party, organised on Twitter. Members of organisations including the Anti-Bedroom Tax Federation, the Communist party, the Socialist party, the Socialist Workers party and the International Socialist Group, were joined by members of the public in the city’s George Square.
“A chorus of ‘so long, the witch is dead’, along with chants of ‘Maggie Maggie Maggie, dead dead dead,’ could be heard among the popping of champagne bottles. In Leeds, people cheered and even handed out ‘Maggie death cake’ at another of several street parties across the UK last night.
“In west Belfast, a crowd assembled on the streets outside the Sinn Féin office in the Lower Falls road where music was played as people danced and passing motorists sounded their horns. People were seen huddling in a crowd as they drank and sang to celebrate the 86-year-old’s death. Petrol bombs were thrown at police in Derry amid celebrations and missiles were thrown at police.”
Ah, the sweet sounds, smells and sights of the love bunch; so great to see all their tolerance and acceptance in action. Just imagine if they ever showed us what intolerance and hate was like. As I say, mere politics cannot account for all this death, destruction and hatred.
This is coming straight out of the pit of hell. Satan knows he has but a short time, so he is unleashing all his venom and violence against all that is good, right and holy. And the political left has long been a nice tool of all this.
I like how one Australian politician, Bernie Finn, described all this: “Watching the Left celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher reminds me that hatred is their oxygen. Without something – or someone – to hate, the Left has no reason to exist. They deserve our pity.”
Yes they deserve our pity and our prayers. Many of them are simply in the clutches of demonic spirits and satanic bondage. But they also deserve our condemnation. No civilised society can last with this kind of anarchy, hatred and bloodlust.
