A former Bush campaign adviser who is running as a Democrat in Texas’ lieutenant governor race said Sunday that Jesus Christ today would be declared “woke” by conservatives.
Matthew Dowd, who is seeking his party’s nomination to take on Republican Dan Patrick, said he came to the realization in church that today’s “wokeness” is just another term for human decency.
“As I sat in church today I was thinking that if Jesus were here today he would be accused of being woke,” he tweeted. “How about we just say it is human decency to treat all with respect and dignity and that it is constitutional to say all men and women are equal.”
“Lovely service at church today at Chapel in the Hills in Wimberley,” he wrote in an earlier tweet. “‘Let your joy be in your journey, not in some distant goal.’ Let us each find joy in meaning and service with compassion and respect of others. It is there that happiness resides.”
Dowd, a former ABC News political analyst, was an adviser to George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign and the chief strategist for Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign.
Dowd’s comments came after Democratic strategist James Carville sparked the ire of progressives for blaming Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s loss in Virginia on “stupid wokeness” and the progressive agenda.
“What went wrong is stupid wokeness,” Carville said. “Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, Buffalo, look at Minneapolis, even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools, people see that. And it really has a suppressive effect on all across the country on Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a woke detox center or something.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., fired back at Carville, saying “wokeness” is a term “almost exclusively used by older people these days.”
“And before people disingenuously complain ‘woke’ is denigrating to older people, it’s actually pundits like Carville using terms like ‘woke’ to insult voters under 45 that’s denigrating,” she tweeted. “Don’t wonder why youth turnout falls when Dems talk about them like this. We need everyone.”
Merriam-Webster added the word woke to its dictionary in 2017, defining it as, “aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice).” The Oxford dictionary adopted it the same year, defining it as “originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice.”
Many Americans regard wokeness as connected to cancel culture, censorship, and Critical Race Theory, which may have played a major role in the Democrats’ recent election defeats in Virginia. Liberal commentator Bill Maher has repeatedly criticized wokeness and cancel culture on his show over the past few months.
Matthew Dowd is just an example of the ignorance of and false teachings concerning Our Savior Jesus Christ which have been spread by “the smartest people in the room”.
The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.
The rise of Antifa and the rest of the “Wokesheviks” is a direct result of Far Left Liberal Programming, accomplished in our schools and universities by members of the Democratic Party.
That fact is, it is their allegiance to a failed political philosophy and their unbridled lust for political power which has caused this out-of-control situation which they find themselves in, a political party endorsing Marxism which succeeded in installing an arrogant, feeble-minded United States President in the throes of dementia.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary.
As every Christian knows, the Triune God dwells within each of us, in the form of that “still, small voice”, the Holy Spirit.
And, we must allow that “still, small voice” to accompany us to the voting booth next November.
Christians have to make a choice in these tough times.
The choice we each have to make is whether to “give to Caesar” that which is not his, our Christian Faith, or to listen to that “still, small voice” and decide which candidates will best serve and protect our Sovereign Nation and its citizenry from our enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.
This is not just a “Political Choice” which we as Christian Americans are facing right now.
As I wrote earlier, America is in the midst of a battle of “Princes and Principalities”.
By now. you’re probably asking, “So what’s the point of all this, KJ?”
We are given free will by our Creator…will to make choices and decisions on the direction of our lives. Being human, we often don’t make the right decisions and being human, those decisions have the potential to lead us down a dark path.
Whether it is in reality or strictly in the close quarters of our own consciousness, the path we choose to follow is up to us. However, our parents, family, and friends can make a difference in our journey and I thank God that through His Grace I was given a Father who made sure that I received loving instruction in The Way in which I should go.
We still live in the greatest country on the face of the earth and we still have a responsibility to one another and to those who have gone before us, risking their very lives to secure our freedom.
The Light or the Darkness. The choice is up to each and every one of us.
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:14 (ESV)
And, I stand with the King of Kings.
You see, gentle readers, I’ve read the back of The Book.
The Good Guys win.
Between now and November, be thinking and praying about the direction which you would have America take in the future.
Do you want us to be “One Nation under God” or “The Tower of Babel”?
Also, as you go about your day today, remember, that we have an Advocate, in Jesus Christ the Righteous, and, He is in our corner.
So, take that “little light” of yours, and let it shine.
