Democrats are Satanic Puppets…, Change My Mind!

Okay…, there, I said it.

Yes, my friends…, let’s just cut to the chase and identify democrats for what they are…, willing pawns of the devil.

This political battle has evolved quite rapidly in the last few years, or so, and there is no longer any question about it.

I’m sorry for all of you supposed moderate democrats out there that think you’re exempt from this, because you’re not. There is really nothing moderate about your support of all of these evil extremists and their anti-God, anti-Life, anti-America and America Last policies.

And sadly, many of these people claim to be Catholic!

Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, for example. 

Before you can do anything else with your life, all of you “moderate” democrats have got to wake up.

We are in the midst of a full-blown war of Good vs. Evil, and there is no middle ground.  

The latest example of satanic puppetry of the democrats is their attack on the Catholic’s Rosary.

Catholics, of course, already understand the implications and evilness of this.

If you’re not Catholic, and the whole Rosary thing is a little unclear in your mind…, let’s first clear up what “The Rosary” is.

“The Rosary” is a structured prayer to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, commemorating Jesus and events of his life.

“A Rosary” is a string of beads, with a Cross, used for keeping count while praying “The Rosary.”

The word “Rosary” comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary.

The Rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. It consists of a set number of specific prayers. First are the introductory prayers: one Apostles’ Creed, one Our Father  or the Lord’s Prayer), three Hail Mary’s, and one Glory Be.

The prayer begins, “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.” This is nothing other than the greeting the angel Gabriel gave Mary in Luke 1:28.

The next part reads, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.” This was exactly what Mary’s cousin Elizabeth said to her in Luke 1:42. The only thing that has been added to these two verses are the names “Jesus” and “Mary,” to make clear who is being referred to. So the first part of the “Hail Mary” is entirely biblical.

The second part of the Hail Mary is not taken straight from Scripture, but it is entirely biblical in the thoughts it expresses. It reads, “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

So those are the prayers of The Rosary. Between the introductory prayers and the concluding prayer is the meat of The Rosary: the “decades.” Each decade, there are fifteen in a full rosary (which takes about forty-five minutes to say), is composed of ten “Hail Marys.” Each decade is bracketed between an Our Father and a Glory Be, so each decade actually has twelve prayers.

Each decade is devoted to a mystery regarding the life of Jesus or his Mother. Here the word “mystery” refers to a truth of the faith, not to something incomprehensible. The fifteen mysteries are divided into three groups of five: the Joyful, the Sorrowful, and the Glorious. Let’s look at the mysteries.

The Joyful Mysteries are these: the Annunciation (Luke 1:26-38), the Visitation (Luke 1:40-56), the Nativity (Luke 2:6-20), the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:21-39), and the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:41-51).

Then come the Sorrowful Mysteries: the Agony in the Garden (Matt. 26:36-46), the Scourging (Matt. 27:26), the Crowning with Thorns (Matt. 27:29), the Carrying of the Cross (John 19:17), and the Crucifixion (Luke 23:33-46).

The final Mysteries are the Glorious: the Resurrection (Luke 24:1-12), the Ascension (Luke 24:50-51), the Descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4), the Assumption of Mary into Heaven (Rev. 12), and Her Coronation (cf. Rev. 12:1).

Hopefully that helps to bring some understanding to The Rosary, if you had any questions about it.

Now, let’s take a look at what all of the democrat fuss is about, regarding “The Rosary,” and why I was inspired to reply to the democrats’ evil commentary and accusations. 

According to The National Review, and Dan McLaughlin, Atlantic Magazine claims “Rosaries Are Worse Than Fire Bombings”

Oh. Really? That sounds like it’s coming straight from the Devil’s mouth. The Devil would think that “Rosaries Are Worse Than Fire Bombings,” by far. No contest.

“When “Jane’s Revenge,” a radical pro-abortion group,  takes public credit for firebombing crisis-pregnancy centers, this is how Atlantic writers react, quoting a comparison to ‘moral panic’ over Antifa during the 2020 riots that cost $2 billion in damages and killed two dozen people:”

“Right-wing media outlets have provided ample coverage of this new threat, and anti-abortion politicians have demanded government action to address it.”

And, why wouldn’t they?

“But the group’s practical significance remains in question. Just how meaningful is Jane’s Revenge?”

And who is behind Jane’s Revenge, and why do we not know this. Calling the FBI…, hello FBI…, are you out there?

Just saying.

Anyway…, The Atlantic continues, “Pro-abortion-rights activists have engaged in vandalism in recent weeks, and the blog posts associated with Jane’s Revenge are actively encouraging the behavior. But that does not imply the existence of a complex, coordinated campaign of violence.”

Oh. No…,, not at all.

“In addition to downplaying Jane’s Revenge and its campaign of terror, The Atlantic fails to contextualize it by omitting the activities of ‘Ruth Sent Us,’ the group that published the home addresses of Supreme Court justices to direct protesters to their homes, as well as the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh by a pro-abortion fanatic.”

“Contrast how Panneton frames The Rosary. First, the Atlantic’s subtitle hilariously refers to it as a ‘sacrament,’ an error that can only be explained by having had zero Catholics review the article before publication. Even an ex-Catholic who made it through the third grade would have caught that one. There are seven sacraments, and The Rosary is not one of them:”

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics.”

Only in the minds of democrats being manipulated by Satan.   

“On this extremist fringe, Rosary beads have been woven into a conspiratorial politics and absolutist gun culture. These armed radical traditionalists have taken up a spiritual notion that The Rosary can be a weapon in the fight against evil and turned it into something dangerously literal.”

The Rosary is absolutely “a weapon in the fight against evil.” The Devil hates The Rosary.

According to CNA, The Catholic News Agency, and Zelda Caldwell, ‘“The Atlantic’ publishes article on The Rosary as symbol of far-right, violent extremism.”

“Another article published (recently) in The Atlantic magazine suggests The Rosary has become a symbol of violent, right-wing extremism in the United States.”

“The article set off a frenzy of reactions among Catholics, ranging from amusement to grave concern over what some see as anti-Catholic sentiment.” 

“The magazine later changed the article’s headline from ‘How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol,’ by Daniel Panneton,  to ‘How Extremist Gun Culture is Trying to Co-Opt the Rosary.’ Among other edits to the text, an image of bullet holes forming the shape of rosary was replaced with a picture of a rosary.”

“These editorial changes, nonetheless, left the article’s thesis that there is a connection between The Rosary and extremism intact. The author’s contention was based, in part, on his observations about the use of the rosary on social media and rosaries sold online.”

“The Rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics,” writes Daniel Panneton of the sacramental use in prayer by Catholics for centuries.”

‘“Militia culture, a fetishism of Western civilization, and masculinist anxieties have become mainstays of the far right in the U.S., and ‘rad-trad’ Catholics have now taken up residence in this company,’ writes Panneton, whose article includes three links to Roman Catholic Gear, an online shop that sells rosaries.”

“Asked to comment on the article, Robert P. George, professor of political theory at Princeton University and former chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), told CNA:”

‘“It looks to me like the guy who is politicizing The Rosary and treating it as a weapon in the culture war is … Daniel Panneton. Although it’s hard to miss the classic anti-Catholic tropes in the piece, perhaps he isn’t actually a bigot. Maybe he just overwrought and needs to take an aspirin or two and lie down for a while.’”

“Chad Pecknold, theology professor at Catholic University of America, told CNA the publication of the article points to a ‘theo-political’ conflict in the culture.”

‘“The politically elite core in left-liberal media hate Western civilization and they mean to topple every natural and supernatural sign of it. That’s why it’s not sufficient to simply run a piece on right-wing gun cultures, but they must tie it to something which is theologically central to the civilization they feel most threatens their progressive ziggurat. It’s a sign of the theo-political conflict which now grips us (What he’s referring to is simply Good vs. Evil.); even still, they severely underestimate the power of Our Lady to reign victorious over evil,’ Pecknold said.”

“Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP, a Dominican priest of the Province of St. Joseph, told CNA, ‘The article is a long-running stream of inaccuracies, logical fallacies, and distortions.’”

This is what the great deceiver, Satan, does best…, mislead, lie and distort, and guide his minions, in this case Daniel Panneton and The Atlantic magazine, to mislead, lie and distort.

“The author, he said, fails to understand that ‘the notion of “spiritual combat” has been with the Church from time immemorial.  Recall that a traditional view of Confirmation is that it made one a “soldier for Christ.’””

You can consider me a “soldier for Christ.”

What side do you fall on?

This is a much more important question than just a political one.

They can’t define what a “woman” is?

It’s true, they, the democrats, can’t define what a “woman” is, yet they are all up in arms regarding a “woman’s” right to choose.

Who exactly are they talking about?

Who are these “women” that have a right to choose?  

Alia E. Dastagir, for USA Today, reports that, “In the 13th hour of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearing, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., asked the Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”

“Jackson, appearing confused, responded, ‘There’s no simple answer, Senator…, I’m not a biologist.’”

And, oh, by the way, when did biology come into play, when defining gender, from the democrats’ point of view? Just sayin’.  

So, again, the democrats, who can’t define exactly what a “woman” is are now the standard bearers for “women’s” rights!  

How exactly does that work?

The democrats, the party of hypocrisy and ignorance, has no problem flipping and flopping as required.  

 

Protesters at The Women’s March ‘Rally For Abortion Justice’ in Washington, on Oct. 2, 2021.

The media doesn’t seem too eager to point out this hypocrisy either.  

If Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is pegged to replace Judge Stephen Breyer when he retires, was on The Supreme Court right now, how could she possibly determine a ruling regarding Roe v. Wade, if she can’t even define what a “woman” is…, even though she would be considered a “woman” herself, by those of us who feel we could define what a “woman” is.

The democrats are attempting to destroy women’s sports in our country, while at the same time degrading a woman’s role as a mother, yet they want to appear to be the party of “women’s” rights?

Where were these people chanting “my body my choice,” when thousands of nurses across the country were being fired for refusing to be forced to get vaccinated by Joe Biden and the CDC’s mandates?

And where are these people demanding all of these nurses be reinstated after the courts ruled that these vaccination mandates were beyond the scope of the CDC to mandate?

As usual, the democrats (Satan’s minions) are flat-out lying and misrepresenting the facts surrounding The Supreme Court’s apparent, upcoming, overturning of Roe v. Wade.  

The Court’s ruling would not, in effect, ban abortions.

The Court’s ruling would simply send the abortion question back to the states, for the people of those states to decide, on a state by state basis, how they want to treat the abortion question.

Are the democrats really that afraid to let people have the ability to express their own beliefs and desires by way of a vote?

Apparently, the answer to that question is “yes.”  

The democrats are always more than happy to dictate, rather than let the people speak via the democratic process.  

“Red America” and “Blue America” are quickly becoming two very different countries, which are not going to be compatible with each other in the very near future.

Then what?

ANOTHER “liberal” student arrested for assaulting those with differing views.

I’m sorry, but why do these self-proclaimed “liberals” insist on calling themselves something they’re not?

According to the English Oxford Dictionary, a “liberal” is someone, “Willing to respect or accept behavior or opinions different from one’s own; open to new ideas.” It also means to be “Favorable to or respectful of individual rights and freedoms.”

So punching and attacking other students is how you “respect or accept behavior or opinions different from your own?”

fascists

As Spock would say, “this is quite illogical.”

fascists 10

Although “the absence of logic” would be more definitive of today’s liberals.

According to Caleb Parke of Fox News, “A liberal college student was arrested for assaulting a representative of the pro-life group Created Equal after she attacked him at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill – and it was all caught on camera.”

“Jillian Ward, 19, a pro-choice feminist and aspiring journalist, said she was triggered by graphic photographs depicting aborted children put up by Created Equal. The group uses the images to show ‘the gruesome reality of abortion and to engage students in conversation about this human injustice.’”

fascists JullianWard

“Aspiring journalist,” huh?  I believe you are well on your way, Jillian!  You’re going to fit right in over at CNN or MSNBC!

“Ward approached the group’s display on April 2, asking them, ‘Did y’all put these up?’”

Excuse me, but that just does not sound right.  Liberals should not be allowed to say “y’all.”  Just sayin’.

Anyway…, “When Austin Beigel confirmed that he did, she raced toward him with fists flying. Beigel was allegedly punched in the face a number of times and was also hit in the stomach.”

‘“F***ing terrible person,’ Ward screamed. ‘You’re a terrible person. You — this is not okay. This is not okay. This is not okay. Shut the f**k up right now. This is wrong. This is triggering. You’re not an innocent human being. You’re a terrible person.’”

Says the person who has just physically attacked the other person for doing nothing wrong, besides exercising their freedom of expression…, their freedom of speech…, and disagreeing with her beliefs.

Nice.

“UNC campus police arrested Ward and she is expected to make a court appearance in June.”

fascists 6

I’m sure she’ll have plenty of support inside and outside of court from all of her fellow fascists in training.

“Mark Harrington, president of Created Equal, told Fox News this is part of a bigger trend on college campuses.”

‘“Students being groomed on college campuses to be leaders, writers, and thinkers of the Left are increasing in censorship and violence against those with whom they disagree,’ Harrington said.”

fascists 3

fascists 7

fascists 9

fascists 2

I agree with that Mr. Harrington…, except for the part about “thinkers.”

The “left does not want any “thinkers.”

The “left” wants mindless zombies who just do what they’re told and believe what they’re told without question.

You don’t believe me?

Try questioning what these liberal professors are laying down in class and see how far you go.

Try questioning the liberal student leadership and see how far you get before you are “shunned” and excommunicated!

fascists 8

Well, you know what they say in college…, “Rah, rah, sis boom bah!”

Ya, they say that right before they try and punch your lights out!

My reaction to some recent headlines:  (1) Lock up Attorney General William Barr?  (2) Another date that will “go down in infamy?” (3) Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?  (4) Democrat lawmaker records himself harassing a pro-life woman.  And (5) Joy “less” Behar of “The View” is at it again. 

There are so many topics I’d like to offer my insight on, but so little time!  So every once in a while I like to respond to a number of articles that I couldn’t necessarily devote an entire daily blog to on an article by article basis.

Welcome to my second edition of “MrEricksonRules’ headline buffet line!”

“Imprisoning Bill Barr is [the] left’s new rallying cry: ‘Have him locked up!’”

By Brooke Singman of Fox News.

“The battle between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report has reached new levels of vitriol, as some on the left call for Attorney General Bill Barr to be physically dragged in to testify or even locked up for defying congressional subpoenas.”

“The demands have escalated after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.”

“Though he testified a day earlier on the Senate side, Democrats on the committee still want to bring in the DOJ leader to answer questions on the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files — a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.”

Everything that William Barr has done up this point is completely within in rights and responsibilities as Attorney General.

What we have on the democrats’ side is a bunch of grandstanding, and now desperation, as they learned that Mr. Barr was looking into what really happened regarding Russian collusion, and what really happened regarding spying on Americans, and what really happened that caused this fraudulent investigation to be launched in the first place.

headlines 3

Their main goal now is to discredit him, silence him, and preferably have him resign or be removed from office.  Anything but allow him to drag their “swampy” friends out into the sunlight.

headlines 15

‘“He [Attorney General Barr] lied to Congress.  And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,’ Pelosi told reporters. ‘Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States.  Not the attorney general.’”

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi is an exception to that rule…, as she lies ALL of the time to Congress, to us, to basically anyone within earshot of her.

“Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: ‘We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.’”

“However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate.  Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.”

We all know it doesn’t matter to the democrats what anyone actually says…, the only thing that matters is what they want us to hear.

“NPR reporter refers to Barr summary in same terms as FDR describing attack on Pearl Harbor.”

By Anna Hopkins of Fox News

“The Department of Justice reporter for NPR [National Public Radio] referred to the date of Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as ‘a date that will live … in infamy,’ a phrase many associate with President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 speech following the Pearl Harbor attack.”

headlines 10

“NPR’s Carrie Johnson made the comment during the NPR Politics podcast last Wednesday while discussing Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which he answered questions about the summary he gave of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

NPR…, another arm of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Aren’t you be a tad dramatic there Ms. Johnson?

“A day that will live in infamy?”

Really?

How about the day that people in our government were contemplating a coup against President Trump?  How about that day?

How about the day the DOJ and the FBI decided they were going to falsify testimony to the FISA court and spy on the Trump campaign?  How about that day?

How about the day that the FBI overstepped its bounds and declared Hillary did not break any laws, regarding obstructing justice by destroying her server and then deleting over 33,00 emails, because that was not her “intent.”  How about that day?

You’re pathetic, Carrie Johnson.  You’re just a tool to be used by the liberal propaganda machine. You’re no journalist, and you’re no reporter.

You’re a fool.

“Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?”

By Representative Andy Biggs for Fox News

“Democrats in Congress are so worried that the American people will find out what is NOT in the Mueller report that they will say and do almost anything. The report exposes their false assertions that President Trump cooperated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. They will resort to embarrassing stunts like bringing fast food chicken buckets into congressional hearings. And, they will attempt to destroy the reputation of Attorney General William Barr simply because he is the messenger who released the Mueller report to the public.”

headlines 13

“Consider that House Democrat leaders are claiming Barr lied about … what? They are upset because he wrote a memo iterating the major findings in the Mueller report. They castigated Barr for the few weeks it took for him to make legally required redactions in the Mueller report before he could publicly release the report. Turns out Barr’s initial summary was accurate. And, we have a special counsel report that is available for public viewing with very few redactions, proving that Democrats weren’t telling the truth for over two years.”

“The Democrats must also be troubled that the inspector general will soon be releasing his report regarding the findings of his investigation into the abuse of power, which includes obtaining secret warrants to spy on the Trump campaign under the Obama administration. They dare not let go of their attack on the president and anyone who works with him, knowing that the IG report will likely contain damaging revelations of the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign working with Russians to unleash the police apparatus under President Obama to spy on the Trump campaign for political purposes.”

headlines 5

The democrats are counting on the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” to do their part and downplay or ignore any potentially damaging evidence that turns up.

They, in turn, will just continue to deny, deny, deny, and attempt to discredit William Barr, and anyone else that may need to be silenced.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs represents the 5th Congressional District of Arizona.

“Dem state lawmaker records himself harassing pro-life woman outside Planned Parenthood”

By Caleb Parke of Fox News

“PA [Pennsylvania] State Representative Brian Sims recorded himself harassing a pro-life woman peacefully protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sims’ Philadelphia district.”

headlines 12

“A Pennsylvania Democratic state representative went on an eight-minute rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.”

“Brian Sims recorded a woman outside Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an ‘old white lady’ and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.”

‘“Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE!’ Sims wrote on Twitter Thursday. ‘They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please!’”

So here we have another obvious example of double standards exhibited by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake new media.”

Here we have a politician no less, harassing an elderly citizen, who is doing everything within her rights as a citizen to do.

He brings her race into play, and then has the nerve to later call her a racist!

He also attacks her religion, which is okay to do, as long as it’s Christianity.  God forbid he would attack a Muslim!!!  Then we would really have a problem here!

The level of confusion exhibited by these clowns is just so impressive.

“Joy Behar slams ‘unpatriotic’ Trump, says GOP supporters should remove ‘those flag pins.’”

By Brian Flood for Fox News

‘“The View’ co-host Joy [less] Behar said on Monday that Republicans who support President Trump should take off ‘those flag pins’ because the president’s behavior regarding Russian meddling is ‘unpatriotic.’”

headlines 2

‘“It isn’t just that. Let’s talk about, you know, the fact that he met with Putin for 90 minutes… and never once brought up the fact that Russia, Russia interfered in our election,’ Behar said.

These libs just throw this stuff around like they know what they’re talking about.

How exactly did the Russians “interfere” with our elections?  They sure interfered far less than our own FBI and DOJ!  And I don’t hear her crying about James Comey or Loretta Lynch though!

That’s because Joy “less” Behar has no idea what she is talking about.  She is just a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

headlines 3

“Behar continued: ‘I said last week I don’t want to see any of those flag pins anymore on Republicans who don’t stand up against this guy for Russian meddling, and other things that he’s done. It seems as though he’s unpatriotic.’”

headlines 4

Joy “less” Behar is so far off base here, it’s hard to know how to respond.  So I guess I won’t.

“You can’t argue with crazy” is something my wife says all of the time.

And she’s right.

So I won’t.

“Behar has attacked Trump and his supporters on a regular basis, mocking everything from Mike Pence’s Christian faith to women who support Trump.  She immediately backtracked last September after saying ‘God forbid President Trump lives another 20 years.’”

What a peach.
