Opposition, not Hate
Love Thine Enemy
9:15: "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed."
4:7: "and if thou doest not well, sin coucheth at the door: and unto thee shall be its desire: but do thou rule over it."
There are two enemies we must deal with on a daily basis:
1.The enemies of the peaceful world we wish to live in
2.Our own private demons that cry for attention, and have the means to destroy our personal, inner peace
Ah, the enmity of others...that eternal and frustrating enemy! The enemy of our desire for peace. The enemy of our desire for what we would like to see happen in this world. The enemy of our world-view and hopes for our future. How to deal with it? Anger? Lashing out? Yes...in the childish stages, which admittedly, I live in for much of the time. But yesterday my friend told me how foolish this was, and described his way of dealing with enmity: Pause, take a step back, weigh your options. Is it worth it to get into this fight? What will be gained by it?
Is that possible in the heat of anger? Or maybe I should ask, why the anger? For Carlos Casteneda has this to say: "To be angry at people means that one considers their acts to be important. It is imperative to cease to feel that way." Hmmm, I like that one! Because really, what power do they have but that which you give them? But... would knowing that stop me from lashing out in a fit of anger....?
The Tao te Ching says something like this; "Give the enemy nothing to be angry over, and the enemy will dissappear on its own." I like that one too. It brings to mind two Samurai warriors in a battle--the goal being to avoid the blows of the other, more than in dealing the blows itself. Calm, cool, detached. But still...will that stop the wave of anger from lashing out?
No, I'm afraid the advice of my friend and the second verse posted here is the only way to go: Do thou rule over it! Step back, take hold of your emotions. Act, not react.
For, in actuality, our enemies can turn out to be our best allies. Our enemies can become our best teachers.
For they force us to hone our opinions down to a crisp. They force us to crystallize our feelings to a sharp point of clarity. They force us to define exactly what it is we mean to say. And that is a good thing.
Thank You, My Friend
In the spirit of the Samurai warrior, I say thank you to the enmity that has been put between us; it is teaching us to rule over it!

Just got a 12 hr twitter ban. For mentioning that MTG retweeted “put a bullet in her head.”
It’s the second ban there. The first was for mentioning the t shirt magas made, “she’s a cunt, vote for trump.”
But MTG was not banned FOR retweeting it! Makes no sense.
She’s a maga that’s why. It’s censorship of the left.

The Strange New Right
“The situation in the United States shows what happens when the dangers of the violent far-right are ignored for too long. According to the Anti-Defamation League, violent right-wing extremists have killed considerably more people in the country than any other group since Sept. 11, 2001. In 2017, the first year in which Donald Trump was in office, approximately 60 percent of all terror attacks in the U.S. were motivated by right-wing extremist ideology, whether racist, anti-Semitic or homophobic. The Global Terrorism Database counted only six attacks in the U.S. in 2006, but in 2017, there were 65 attacks that killed 95 people. Thirty-six of those attacks, which left 11 people dead, were attributed to right-wing groups.
There are several reasons for this increase in right-wing violence over the past decade. For one, the election of Barack Obama as the first black president fired up racists like hardly anything that came before. At the same time, online forums were left unmonitored for years, allowing right-wing extremists to organize without any oversight. And Trump's election facilitated a climate in which the -- by now well-organized -- right-wing networks could emerge from the dark corners of the internet and onto American streets.“
And who do they hate? Muslims, immigrants, gay people and women who have abortions.
Domestic terrorism since 1973.
End the electoral college. It’s keeping this in place.

What did i hear? "The deep state". Against trump.
I wonder if rush knows how deep Russia's state goes?
Or is he paid by them, too?
The deepest state is the fear of speaking up against power. Trump smear team will getya!
Kind of like his pal bibi does. Speak against his barbaric regime and get labeled...lose your job.....get kicked off forums.....
The deep state can be good or evil. Im banking on the good ones to get this fascist clown out of the power he stole.
But the deepest fear is speaking out. Corker said so. Hes only talking now cause he doesnt have a job to lose.
Its pathetic. The thought police in full force.

"The silencing of the Hillary clinton supporters"--
The medias obsession with the white populist narrative serves two purposes:
Telling women who supported hillary they dont matter, and exonerating itself from being culpable for her loss--
I always think of mika brezinski....how utterly disdainful she was of clinton. And ooooh, look at trump! Look at sanders!
Turns out she pals w trump, and her daughter was a big bernie fan.
Amd now, they all act like we need to shut up, cause she lost.
Umm, no. She won popular vote, and election was stolen by durty trix.
Shes true blue dem. Not any shade of trump orange at all.
Shows you who media is....far right for trump, or farther left for sanders.

Why and when exactly did Donald Trump decide to run for office? Well, according to Frontline’s upcoming election special it was the moment he was “filleted” by President Barack Obama during a White House Correspondents Dinner.
Both Omarosa Manigault, Trump’s director of African-American outreach, and Trump advisor Roger Stone claim that the real estate mogul was so humiliated that he decided to run for president.
Omarosa, who was in attendance that evening, recalled thinking: “Oh, Barack Obama is starting something that I don’t know if he’ll be able to finish.”
“I think that is the night that he resolves to run for president,” Stone said in another interview during the “Frontline” special. “I think that he is kind of motivated by it, ‘Maybe I’ll just run. Maybe I’ll just show them all.'”
According to Omarosa, Obama’s public mockery was so embarrassing that Trump became determined to become POTUS.
“Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump,” she said. “It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”

Another one they let in spews hatred towards muslims, Obama, Hillary Clinton on a daily basis. If this is creativity, I'll take mundane any day.
Its just another exclusionary club. A continuance of the exclusion they think they are victim off!

Its so funny how people are when they like a candidate....was listening to Rense and Wiedner. Amazed how much they like Trump
The way they talk about him as if hes savior. They say even though hes 1%, hes one of us. He knows Israel did 9/11, hes just stringing them along. Even though 2 of his kids married into wealthy Jewish families, he wont be afraid to tell the truth when the time comes. Even though hes meeting with Netanyahu on the 28th , its just to placate, to let Bibi know whose boss.
They like the fact he told neocons like Adelson i dont need your money.
Meanwhile, the fear and suspicion of Muslims continues unabated lead by Trump. Rense and Wiedner think by saying dancing Muslims celebrating, he was really talking about the dancing Israelis and sendind signal he knows......
So you see, its all about perception. Those who liked Bush put positive motives to things he did. Those who like Obama do the same. Now Trump.
My only question is....if he knows the truth, doesnt fear them, what is he waiting for?
Rense and Wiedner think he is playing his business game on them...making the deal.
They call him genius.
Ill wait and see. Because someones must be salivating at all the money to be made rebuilding all the places on this Earth they have blown to smithereens.

Turns out Nancy Davis was well known in Hollywood for performing a certain sexual act....wonder if that's why Uncle Ronnie married her? Lol--just speculating, no harm done, right?
And how about Laura Bush running over a guy when she was 17....it was ruled an accident, but you know she used to date him, right?
My theory is they got her to marry GW by threatening to bring the case up again. Because back then, GW was a coke-head drunk. They needed Laura--a nice librarian as good wifey for his political career.
Shall we delve into Jeb's daughter writing scripts for herself, back when she was an addict?

Only mitigated by the good will of people you so derisively call un-American
Oh to be a fly on the wall of Judgement!

Well, this is something for the shrinks....
I've been blogging since 2006. And always made my feeling known about the Bush regime.
Couldn't stand it. Thought it was sadistic, brutal, thieving...an embarrasment and a horror.
And every time i made my feeling known, I was told "You hate America" " You don't support the troops" "If you don't like it, move somewhere else"
Doesn't matter what website--the Cons were always the same rude and disrespectful towards me, JUST because I don't like Bush.
I don't like Zionists either, and of course, am labeled a Jew-Hating anti-Semite.
But just look at Cons now!
Proud as Peacocks to tell the world how much they can't stand Obama!
And you know what?......Never have I seen anyone tell them they hate America, don't support the troops, or tell them to move if they don't like it.
Don't you wonder why Cons resort to those biting tactics, and no one else does? I do.
I believe it's Superiority Complex, but I'm not a shrink.
Gotta be some reason.
So much so that they have to silence opposition....and always advocate war and military force for anyone stepping on their widdle toes.
I mean....you all might think you're stalwart proud Americans, keeping traditions dear......
But I think you have a serious mental problem.....and need help!

"I’m going to say this and whoever can take it how he/she/they want:
The problem here in the St. Louis area and in the entire country is that there is NOT an honest discussion about race. If we mention “white privilege”, we are then greeted with tales of how poor “white person x” was and how they had to work for everything in their lives. Even though this may be true, this says NOTHING about white privilege. We try to explain white privilege by telling white people that we are treated differently by society than whites are. We explain the inequalities in education, economics, law enforcement, police stops, arrests, searches, and other things. But they ignore us and tell us that we are “playing the race card” or being victims."

Using "hands up--don't shoot".....Just like Ferguson. Classic.

The only problem with anger, is it robs you of your health, and energy!! I prefer to remain calm, after living with furious people in my life..They were great teachers for what not to do..

There are worthy enemies and then there are Rogues who go beyond the scope of being human. People who would do anything to others in the name of greed, power and dominion.
Personally I am a Warrior and will always strike at those that dare to betray humanity.
Anger used in the fight for good is always worthwhile anger that can be harnessed and used to win against such rogues of humanity.
Thanks for sharing your hub with us. Excellent work.

Yes. Righteous anger is very useful...and does sharpen your point of view to a diamond...
Plus, there are a lot of people who try to say it is not so bad...when we know it is!

At times I would agree with you; when we, our family, or our country's well being is at stake, we should use the anger to protect those things. I have been an angry person for a long time with good reason, which I will not mention here, but I became a better person when I learned to accept the anger as a natural part of self-defense and to redirect that important fuel into positive action. Passion controlled by intellect is a sharp weapon and a worthy one when used to defend the innocent or innocence.
