The signature pattern of Al Mohler is to coddle left and punch right. Al Mohler spent years liberalizing the Southern Baptist Convention with this strategy as president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. After briefly sounding like a conservative to many, including the Conservative Baptist Network, Al Mohler is slipping back into old habits. On his Monday episode of his podcast, Al Mohler decided to tackle the Paul Pelosi situation, going Full Monty into propaganda mode, believing conservatives need to take responsibility for their actions that contributed to it.
Now, the Speaker of course is Representative Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat of California. And with her district there in San Francisco and her husband Paul Pelosi, a businessman, both of them by the way are age 82, who in the early hours of Friday morning San Francisco time was evidently attacked by a man in his own home–the speaker by the way was back in Washington D.C.–who demanded to know, “Where’s Nancy?” And by the time the police arrived on the scene, it was Mr. Pelosi who was being assaulted by the man who was eventually arrested for the crime and accosted by police. He was assaulting Mr. Pelosi with a hammer leading to a skull fracture and other injuries from which at least at this point, we are told Mr. Pelosi is likely to recover.
But we are talking about a serious attack. We’re talking about a hammer, a hammer that was used with intent to do damage and injury, if not to kill. We are talking about a skull fracture and other injuries. We’re talking about violence, and clearly this is violence within a political context. And that should be a matter of grave concern for all Americans.
Al Mohler buys into and peddles the narrative, just as he did with Covid. This is despite the numerous, homoerotic, holes in the official narrative that the Pelosis are peddling. These holes emerged over the weekend prior to Al Mohler’s teleprompted podcast being released. Nevertheless, the true purpose of using this is to attack conservatives for being too mean in politics.
But I’ll take responsibility to say particularly I want to speak to those on the right, to conservatives. We bear responsibility for weaponizing language in a way that can mislead by the very use of, say violent imagery, can mislead someone who is diluted or troubled into thinking that the answer to a political problem is some form of violent act. That is something we simply must keep in mind. The incendiary context of social media, many of the memes and themes and much of the language that is being used is not going to age well, and it just might serve as a reminder that we have better watch our language.
We must take ideas seriously. We must hold to our convictions tenaciously. We must advocate for our own political party and candidates and the positions we want to see enacted in law. We must see our moral convictions articulated and defended. And when it comes to politics as in any other area of life, but especially in politics, we have to make very, very clear that what we are not to do is to give ourselves into the danger of personalizing this to the point that we demonize our political opponents to the point that at least some hearing us would think that what we’re saying is that we would be well off without them on the political scene. The answer to that is an election, not a hammer.
This is an effeminate mentality in which Al Mohler is trying to blame words for the actions of a depraved mind, who was doubtfully a holder of conservative ideals. Nonetheless, Al Mohler is against us making politics personal despite the past three years, Americans have been lock down, poisoned, children mutilated, and indoctrinated to hate whiteness. Politics is personal in today’s day. But Al Mohler suggests that demonizing those who are demonic is a bridge too far. It’s quite easy to see how false teachers ran rampant throughout Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
The truth is if the left wing in American politics ceased to exist our nation would be revived, and Al Mohler doesn’t want us to acknowledge this basic fact.
But then we ask ourselves the question, who is contributing to this? Politicians? Yes, many politicians bear responsibility for this, on the left and on the right. We don’t have time to document that. You know it’s true. On the left and on the right, there are people who say things that are over the line. And some of them get a lot of attention on both the right and the left for saying things that are clearly over the line. So politicians in one sense, or at least many politicians, are responsible here. What about political parties? What about political organizations? What about those who are paying for political advertisements? Yeah, a lot of irresponsibility goes around.
Al Mohler does not understand the times and wants to use a suspicious narrative to attack those who do.
