Bertrand L. Comparet
Never before in the history of our race has such a spirit
of timidity and of abject fear of offending anyone, taken hold of almost
everybody. Go where you will, into the homes, offices, public dinners, public
forums and you still find this idea that certain subjects are taboo. They cannot
be mentioned because they are controversial. Oddly enough, only vitally
important matters are controversial. Why are you forbidden to freely speak your
views on the important subjects of social, economic, political and religious
Well, you really aren't forbidden to, unless you happen
to be on the side of good Americanism, conservatism or Christianity. You
constantly find that those who hate our God are free to speak their minds at all
times. They can denounce your religion, even demand that the forces of law be
turned against it, to outlaw religion in the schools and all public places. If
you say a word in protest, you are at once denounced as a religious bigot and
reminded that there is freedom of religion, for everybody except you.
Those who hate everything that has made our nation great,
who hate all that has brought us the highest living standard the world has ever
known, want to replace it with that front porch of communism, socialism. These
people have almost monopolized our schools and have taken over the Republican
and Democratic branches of our two political parties. They can and do speak
against our way of life on every possible occasion. Oppose them with a word and
you are at once reminded of our sacred right of free speech. But, you have no
such right for you are called a reactionary for opposing them.
Those who hate our free nation, to which most of them
very recently came as refugees, want to destroy its freedom by making it a
conquered province of the United Nations ruled by the cannibals of the Congo.
The jungle savage nations of Africa alone outvote us 30-1. They are free to
undermine and attack our nation at all times and in every way. If you speak in
opposition to this, you are called Fascist and hate monger. It has actually
reached the point where anyone who upholds the political and social views of
such great Americans as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln,
Theodore Roosevelt or Herbert Hoover, is described by most of our newspaper
columnists and radio and TV commentators as being extreme right wing, often
coupled with an insinuation of Fascist or Nazi sympathies.
Why is it that their always offensive attacks upon all
American and Christian principles are sacrosanct, while all your defense of the
principles of this free nation, our way of life and our religion has suddenly
become controversial and hence to be avoided?
It is because the truth has always been controversial and what makes it
controversial? Only the fact that evil always attacks it and also attacks the
man who speaks the truth.
Christianity is controversial because all the satanic
wickedness in 2,000 years has been hurled against it. The most controversial
figure in all history is the One who is the very personification of truth,
Yahshua. He never fled from controversy, nor kept silent to avoid offending the
wicked. To the contrary, He pressed the attack against evil. Today, those who
are not able to silence truth completely, try to cut it down to the point where
it is no longer effective. They tell us that we must speak only of issues we
must not mention personalities. You can't fight evil this way, because there is
no evil in the abstract, it exists only in the evil deeds of evil persons.
What good can it do to sermonize against wickedness in
the abstract, to merely shadowbox with the dictionary? There can't be a burglary
without a burglar and no treason without a traitor. Point the searchlight of
truth at the traitors and you can eliminate them so the treason must stop. If
you only debate the silly questions whether treason is one of the inherent
rights of all liberals, the traitors will work on without hindrance.
These truths Yahshua knew and demonstrated. The beginning
of His ministry was when He found the temple filled with the corruption of the
moneychangers. Did He preach abstract sermons on the desirability of honesty and
reverence for the house of Yahweh, without mentioning the dishonest or the
irreverent? No indeed, He made a whip of ropes and flogged those crooks out of
the temple. He found the temple and all the organized religion of the day in the
hands of the Pharisees. They were men of much outward piety, but spiritual
frauds. Did He content Himself with preaching on religion in the abstract,
without giving offense to the Pharisees? Oh no, the Bible records nine times
Yahshua denounced the Pharisees as hypocrites, six times as blind and fools,
once He identified them as serpents, a race of vipers. He told them that even
the tax collectors and the harlots would enter the kingdom of Yahweh before they
could. He knew that false ideas cannot arise or exist without someone to teach
the falsehoods, so He exposed them.
Of course this brought on Him the bitterest hatred ever
directed against any person in all of history, hatred which is as strong today
as on the day of the crucifixion. We Christians are also hated for our religion.
Christianity grew great and strong despite its enemies and produced its greatest
leaders under the stress of persecution. It was always greatest when it was
controversial. Yahshua saw this and in Matthew 10:32-34 told us,
"Whosoever, therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I also confess
before My Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him
will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come
to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword". You
cannot proclaim truth without opposition or water it down until evil no longer
attacks you and you have no truth left. The only thing that can peacefully
coexist with evil is some other evil.
Then what should we do? Good can only be controversial if
the wicked attack it. Turn the tables on them; make their attacks on Americanism
and Christianity controversial. Get them on the run; learn the weak points of
their principles and attack! Many of us are doing this very successfully. Defend
your own views when needed, but don't limit yourself to the defensive, carry the
war to the enemy. Their propaganda has had the field almost entirely to itself
and has brainwashed millions of people. Refute the lies they have foisted upon
us. Never let such propaganda be spoken in your presence without a
reply. Of course you must know what you are talking about, so you won't lose
the argument. Make lists of the failures of socialism and keep one always with
you for reference when the subject comes up.
Learn the details of the various death traps to liberty
and civilization, which are hidden in the United Nations, and its various
conventions. Never lose an opportunity to point them out. Make it so
controversial for any anti American, any anti Christian to spout their attacks
that those who fear controversy will no longer give the enemy free rein to start
Don't be afraid of controversy, the enemies of all truth
and all good, will always attack every time they can. You have just two choices,
either cowardly surrender while evil triumphs, or else vigorous counter attack to
drive the wicked out of all places of advantage. Yahshua warned you that
Christianity must fight to survive; the victories of past generations must not
be lost today. Onward Christian Soldiers! If the wicked want to make good
controversy, let it be at their own peril.
We should be proud of what Yahweh and our ancestors have
done for us. Speak up! Teach the principles of our religion and our civilization
to your poor brainwashed children who are now being taught socialism and
agnosticism in many high schools and most colleges. We didn't receive our fine
heritage from cowards neither can cowards preserve it. You should be the one
taking the initiative, making the enemy retreat. If that's controversial, make
the most of it.
