There is a new book out about Vice President Mike Pence that should disgust and outrage every Christian in America. The target right now is Vice President Mike Pence but if the premise of this book gains traction, I believe it will target all of us.
“The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence,” authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner argue that Pence is “the most successful Christian supremacist in American history” and that a Pence presidency could mean the United States becoming a theocracy.
Here’s the thing—I want you outraged and disgusted, but the last thing I want is this book banned. That is the essential difference between the radical left and the rest of us. We don’t want them banned.
I’ll get back to Mike Pence in a moment but I want to expand my reasoning about why we don’t want the left to lose free speech.
Their nonsensical rhetoric melts in the sunlight of honest discourse. Our Gospel does not. That is why they want us banned. In the light of day, and in a fair debate, radical leftism folds like a house of cards. They have to use censorship, algorithms, masks and clubs and scream as loud as they can to drown out reason.
The best way to stop socialism is to let Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keep talking. For her part, Alexandria knows this. That’s why she offered the lamest excuse in history for turning down a debate with Ben Shapiro.
Censorship is vital to their ruse. No doubt this blog will be banned by the major social platforms who will allow the left to be as hateful as they want. Remember, that to them, it’s not hate speech because of hate—it is hate speech because it was said by Conservatives and Christians.
So what is wrong with The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence? This book confirms the radical left’s systemic hatred of Christianity. The best way to show you how vile this book really is, is by sharing the New York Times review of the book:
New York Times columnist Frank Bruni concluded “There are problems with impeaching Donald Trump. A big one is the holy terror waiting in the wings,” Bruni wrote. “That would be Mike Pence, who mirrors the boss more than you realize. He’s also self-infatuated. Also a bigot. Also a liar. Also cruel.”
The left rightly fears Pence. He would be a great president but never a tyrant. Click here to read more about Mike Pence and why the left fears him. https://wp.me/p1vrzp-56C
No facts are presented to substantiate these claims. It’s the left’s way just to throw slime and demand we accept it merely because they said it. They are counting on getting the pass the radical left always gets when it lies.
How rich is it when 400 newspapers, Google, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Hollywood and Antifa, consider themselves the resistance?
This vacuous book says a President Mike Pence would bring a theocracy to America. Ben Shapiro said, “The only theocrats, the only people who actually want to rule from above by instituting their moral preferences on society from the top down are the folks on the left. It’s really quite disgusting.”
All authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner are doing in this book is projecting their own theocratic tendencies toward government onto Pence.
The American church is having her Detrick Bonhoeffer moment. The great German Pastor/Prophet/Martyr who faced down Hitler and tried to awaken the German Church has a message that echoes from eternity: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
