Giuliani gets no respect, neither do Americans
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is taking heat from the leftist media and the White House for his remarks last Wednesday that the US “president” did not love his country. According to an account from the New York Post, Giuliani “doubled down” in an interview Friday. The Post reports that Giuliani claims that the “commander in chief has been influenced by communists since his youth. The Post reported Giuliani said, “From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist.” The Post says Giuliani also said another bad influence on the “president” was Saul Alinsky, a community organizer whom the ex-mayor called a “socialist.”
In the interview Giuliani said, “He doesn’t talk about America the way John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan did, about America’s greatness and exceptionalism, He was educated by people who were critics of the US. And he has not been able to overcome those influences.” Giuliani also said, “Somebody has to raise these issues with the president. Somebody has to have the courage to stand up.” Giuliani criticized the “president” for paying more attention to the police shooting in Missouri, which, “turned out to be justified,” than the killings by the Islamic State. He asked, “How could you hold a press conference about Ferguson and not hold a press conference when Christians and Jews were slaughtered?”
The New York Times reported that Joe M. Allbaugh, a former Giuliani adviser who led the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the World Trade Center attacks, said he applauded Mr. Giuliani’s candor. TheTimes quoted Allbaugh as saying, “He [Giuliani] represents a lot of Americans who are scratching their heads wondering why our president-the president of the United States-doesn’t defend our culture the way he defends everybody else’s culture.” The White House was condescending and disrespectful in its response. Press Secretary Josh Earnest gave the leftist news media what they wanted in saying, “I think, really, the only thing that I feel is to feel sorry for Rudy Giuliani today.”
Many Americans have raised the same questions as has Giuliani. The response has been the same. Moreover, there are many Americans who raised such questions and have been targets of IRS audits, phone tapping, and other harassments. White House press secretary Josh Earnest is a reflection of his boss. They are 2 Timothy 3 sort of men–lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, traitors, false accusers, despisers of those that are good. This is why there can be no honest dialogue about the leadership of this nation. When someone raises a concern, they are attacked as if they are the problem. As 2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
