Notre Dame Fire:
Leftist News Media Smear Campaign vs. Western Civilization, Christendom
Leftist News Media denies Notre Dame Arson as Possible Cause
RUSH: So there you have it. Lou Dobbs not backing away from the issue of possible arson, and if it is arson, who could be behind it. You know, 875 Catholic churches in France were vandalized in 2018. I think a lot of people would be surprised that there are even are 875 Catholic churches in France. But there are, and 875 of ’em were vandalized, and there were 12 churches vandalized, including a fire in Paris last month in a single week.
RUSH: So, see? Notre Dame, billions. Three black churches, peanuts. Not fair. Racist Americans. Racist whites around the world eager to rebuild Notre Dame, couldn’t care less about three black churches in Louisiana. That’s CNN’s angle. So you always turn — it’s a good story that so many people are offering so much money to Notre Dame. It’s a very uplifting story.
CNN can’t allow that. Got to tear that down.
CNN Smear Campaign against Notre Dame Donations
There’s a lot of money that’s been donated to Notre Dame and the amount of money in comparison donated to three black churches is much smaller. So all of that’s true. It is the tone. I mean, even juxtaposing these things together, the purpose here is to smear white donors, wealthy white donors, to smear whites as racist and uncaring.
So you take what is a really good story, and you turn it into a negative on the people who are making it a really good story. You impugn the donors.
They may be able to rebuild Notre Dame, but they’re not gonna be able to put the heart and soul back in. It was built by people who believed in a transcendent world and believed in a searing, was his word, searing love and devotion to Jesus Christ and his mother. And everything that was built into that church came from the heart and the soul of the people who were doing it.
He said, what’s gonna happen here, this little Macron guy, “We’re gonna rebuild it in five years.” So they’re basically gonna get a bunch of Hollywood set designers to get back in there with their computer-aided design programs and try to recreate what it was and get close to the wood and so forth and make it look like it did as much as they can.
Victor Davis Hanson’s point, we simply do not have the heart, the mind-set that we had at the time these great cathedrals were built.
This is a bunch of leftist, stuffed-shirt, arrogant snobs from Harvard and the architectural community saying that Notre Dame was always a fraud, that it was always phony, that there never was this “white Christian France” in the first place, and it doesn’t deserve to be rebuilt as such. Notre Dame needs to be rebuilt as a secular cathedral.
Smear Campaign against Christendom, Western Civilization
Folks, to understand this, it really would be helpful to understand what the overall target is. It’s not just sufficient to say that “white human history” is being targeted here. This is the whole concept of Western Civilization — Christendom and all of it — and the actual target is the American founding. If you can overturn and erase the American founding, then you will have wiped out Western Civilization. They think they’ve already made great inroads in erasing elements of white and Western Civilization in Europe already.
You see, this effort is worldwide. It’s not just confined to the United States, but it’s focused here because if the United States’ founding can be erased, overturned, obliterated, or if — better than that — the founding can be reported on and misrepresented so that in a lot of people’s minds, then they will have effectively succeeded in wiping out Western Civilization, which is the objective.
It really isn’t any more complicated than that. Freedom. Freedom is where opposition to liberalism lives. Can’t have that.
Freedom is the great threat to liberalism. It’s the great threat to totalitarianism, authoritarianism. It’s the great threat to the Democrat Party. Freedom is where opposition exists, or can.
It has to be wiped out. The roots of it have to be wiped out. The whole idea that human beings are created in freedom, that freedom is God-given, not man bestowed.
Liberals want to be in charge of who’s free and who isn’t. They want to erase this idea that there is a God and that God created human beings and in that creation is a yearning to be free. Gotta wipe that out. The Soviets did it. Communism’s basic tenet?
No God, no freedom. The state is it. When there’s no God and when there’s no faith and when there’s no freedom, there’s no opposition. But, see, they can’t wipe out freedom because freedom is part of the way we’re created and built.
