In 1979, when leftwing singer Jello Biafra ran for mayor of San Fransisco, he came in fourth, largely on a platform that mocked then-Governor, Jerry Brown. While it may have been odd for a left winger to attack a fellow left winger, it can be thought of in the same way that the Republicans attacked Mr. Trump during the run-up to his victory. Oddly enough, Jerry Brown is STILL in office in 2017! Many
feared predicted that he would be president someday, but today he sits in California’s governor’s chair, still as problematic as ever.
After making a small calculating error that cost his state billions and urging for Obama’s failed mandates to be kept in place, Brown is now pontificating on what it means to be Christian, namely that building the Trump Wall ISN’T! On NBC’s “Meet the Press” last Sunday, the mathematically challenged governor said that keeping everyone safe with a common sense wall was not the “Christian thing” to do. It is always amazing to note how the left detests all things that even whisper at the name of Jesus Christ until they have an agenda to prove. They can abort babies only a month from birth while viable, send our jobs to distant lands that abuse their people for profit and they can even remove God from all aspects of public education. However, when a wall is to be built to protect the people from illegal migration, the left becomes the holiest of them all.
He goes on to say that those who come here illegally are also “children of God” and “They should be treated that way.” While not many Christians would suggest otherwise, Christianity teaches that we are all God’s children. Are we to imagine that Brown is saying that everyone (or even that every Christian) is to be allowed free entry at will into America? The term “children of God” is actually a very broad brush in some interpretations, but how does being a child of God mean that one is automatically allowed into America? The U.S.A. has never said that “all children of God are welcome to move into the nation” at any point in time. Brown, therefore, is using colorful language that has little actual substance.
Brown went on to say, “The wall to me is ominous. It reminds me too much of the Berlin wall. When I see that 30-foot wall I worry somehow are they trying to keep me in or keep them out?” This is a statement that would have some merit if Trump (or anyone else) had dropped even a hint of an inclination to keep people from leaving the nation. Again, at no point has America ever had any issue with people leaving the country (unless fleeing justice) so long as the receiving nation has no problem with the migration. This truth did not prevent Brown from meandering on, saying, “I really think people ought to be careful because there’s a lot of odor here of kind of a strong man, a kind of a world where you want the ultimate leader here to be doing all of this stuff, and having a wall, locking the people in is one of those characteristics. I think America ought to be very careful when we make radical changes like a 30-foot wall keeping some in and some out.”
Besides saying that he did not like the wall, he also said, “to the extent that that violates law certainly, I would enforce that. We’re not going to sit around and just play patsy and say, ‘Hey, go ahead. Lock us in. Do whatever the hell you want. Deport 2 billion, 2 million people.” The bad news for him is that the Constitution clearly says that these people should not have been allowed to remain in the nation since the day that they got here. It is also against the law for California to house them in “sanctuary” settings or to hamper their deportation. Undeterred he went on, “No, we’re going to fight, and we’re going to fight very hard. But we’re not going to bring stupid lawsuits or be running to the courthouse every day. We’re going to be careful. We’ll be strategic.”
We now have the governor of one of the biggest states in the union seeking “strategic” ways to break federal law. It must be asked if the people in the federal detention centers of California who refuse to listen to the law should also get the kind of support that Brown seeks for breaking the rules. After all, if the governor does not have to obey the law, why should anyone else?
Not satisfied that he had looked foolish enough, he went on to show his biblical illiteracy by saying “We are going to do the right, human and I would even say the Christian thing from my point of view. You don’t treat human beings like that. That is not what — Trump’s supposed to be Mr. Religious Fellow and I thought we had to treat the least of these as we would treat the Lord.” He seems to not have understood that Mother Mary was seeking a room for a night, perhaps a few nights with recovery, not to live there at the inn! This misunderstanding can be seen in his continuing statement, “So I hope he would reconnect with some of his conservative evangelicals and they’ll tell him that these are human beings and they’re children of God, they should be treated that way.”
One of the ways that ISIS proves whether or not a person is Islamic if they are interrogating someone to torture is to ask basic questions about the religion and wait for answers. A non-Muslim will quickly be found this way, and it seems, so will a fake Christian. The fact that Jerry Brown has not likely lifted a bible since God etched it into stone tablets can be found in the way that he uses the historical Christian text to try and destroy a once great nation. Fortunately for us all, it is not very hard to see through this “man of God.”
