Does Pettiness Make You Feel Better?

In 2017, as President Trump was inaugurated, the left paraded around saying “Not my President” and trending the #Resist hashtag on Twitter. For them, Sec. Hillary Clinton was their President and Donald J. Trump had stolen it from her.

For the next four years they tried to make this a reality. They set him up, created a special counsel to investigate him, investigated his taxes, impeached him twice, and still can’t stop talking about him. Many had physical reactions to him including symptoms that sound a lot like PTSD, and now that he is gone they are still talking about him.

Many of us on the right tried to get them to understand that, while they didn’t vote for him and did not like his policies, he was still their President, as the United States has only one President at a time. We may not like our elected officials, we may think that they got their through cheating, but that doesn’t stop them from being the person with the title.

And yet, after all of this, the right is now engaged with the same types of behavior, with people suggesting that we drop the “P” from President when referring to Biden, or enjoying being on the #Resist or “Not My President” bandwagons. But this is simply akin to the child that plugs his ears and chants, “You can’t make me.”

It might make you feel better, but it masks the fact that you need to be engaged because there are much greater issues going on than whether you won or lost the big election. There are people on the left actively attempting to get Republicans– meaning those that did not vote for Biden– out of public life and out of their jobs.

Now is the time to fight. I’m not calling for physical violence, it doesn’t have to get to that because we have much better tools at our disposal:

  • Elected officials should be fighting the executive orders
    • President Trump appointed a lot of originalist judges
    • Find a judge and challenge executive orders
  • Churches should be fighting for the Bible
    • They need to preach the Word faithfully
    • They need to be light to their communities
  • Fathers and Mothers need to be investing in their children
    • How many children do you have?
    • Are your children following your values?

Start where you are and make a difference in where God has given you responsibility. Focus on the kingdom of Heaven, make disciples, and then branch up.

Stop the pettiness and get to work.
