This tweet followed this interesting follow-up exchange at the White House yesterday.
“For the sake of this room, the people who are in this room, this democracy, this country, all the people around the world are watching what you’re saying, Sarah,” Acosta said. “The president of the United States should not refer to us as the enemy of the people.”
“I appreciate your passion,” Sanders responded. “I share it. I’ve addressed this question. I’ve addressed my personal feelings. I’m here to speak on behalf of the president. He’s made his comments clear.”
Acosta and his fellow-travelers in mass media think they are on the high ground here.
I think they are “the enemy of the people.”
In fact, I think they are unwittingly doing the work of the Enemy.
President Trump called them the “Opposition Party.”
They 0ppose my political values.
They oppose my social values.
They oppose my moral code.
They oppose my traditionalist Christianity.
They oppose my ability to freely exercise my religion.
They oppose American leadership in the world.
They hide the murderous crimes of America’s enemies while trumpeting any fault they can find with America.
They hide the murderous crimes of all other religions aside from Christianity, including Atheism, while haranguing us with repeated tales of Christians’ violence.
They do not want me to be able to teach my children my religion and values; they do not want me to be able to defend my family; they do not want me to have a voice in the public square; they do not want me to know the truth.
I think they are the enemy of the people, even more than President Trump does.
