David Jolly, a columnist for the right-wing site BarbWire, compared the situation of conservatives and Christians in the U.S. today to that of American colonists suffering under onerous British rule and taxation, and urged Christians and conservatives to “be ready to take up arms and fight for our country.”
In many ways, America today is much like the American colonies 250 years ago and short of a biblical reformation the likes this nation has never seen, it seems obvious that the only hope of saving America is for Christians and conservatives do what they did 244 years ago when they armed themselves and rebelled against the tyrants that were oppressing them.
In his May 4 column, Jolly argued that Americans “once again are finding themselves being oppressed by the tyrannical left.”
The leftists want to tax everyone to death, just like the British did so long ago. The left is also trying to take away as many rights as possible. They are busy passing laws that make preaching the Bible illegal because parts on sin are considered offensive hate language. Conservatives and Christians are being openly targeted in an effort to silence their voices. Their websites and social media pages are being blacklisted and shutdown by leftists. If a conservative and/or Christian is scheduled to speak in public, extreme leftists threaten violence.
“Am I calling for a rebellion?” Jolly asked:
If necessary, YES, I am. First I ask everyone to pray for a complete reformation, but short of that reformation, I urge conservatives and Christians to be ready to take up arms and fight for our country. If they don’t, the America we all love and cherish will quickly disappear.
