Pray for the next 38 days; show your character with your vote that 38th day, November 6th, 2012.
If you haven’t ordered Ann Coulter’s new book, Mugged, or more pointedly if you haven’t read her previous book, Demonic, you need to read both. Demonic carefully lays out the reality that the mindset we call progressive or liberal is rooted in hate, intolerance and the determination to rule with an iron fist. They intend to achieve their goal of tyrannical rule by any means necessary including threats and mob violence—much like jihadists.
In 2011 we were treated to mobs in Madison, Wisconsin and Columbus, Ohio followed later that year by the Obama/SEIU/ACORN Occupy Wall Street. This year has brought a smattering all that and another thing entirely—the intimidation of active engaged conservatives. A current example is this Godfather Politics story of death threats and vandalism a couple is receiving over this (now taped and patched up) home made Romney sign in their yard:
Business owners Dee and Gene Liboff of Woodland Hills, California, just wanted to show their support for Mitt Romney in the coming election by putting up a handmade sign in front of their home.
But what they were shown in return is the ugly side of some Obama supporters.
Ever since putting up the sign, the Liboffs, who are members of the San Fernando Valley Patriots, have been engaged in a running war with vandals who have cut, pulled down, torn apart and ripped the sign out of the ground.
Every time it happens, the Liboffs get out the tape and glue and put the sign back up. While doing so, they have been yelled at and cursed.
A passing biker who saw Dee fixing the sign screamed, “You are dead.”
But things took an even darker turn when the sign was vandalized again and the Liboffs found what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail left beside the ruins of the sign, possibly as a warning.
The makeshift bomb, consisting of a jar full of some sort of liquid and a rag stuffed in the jar mouth, prompted the bomb squad and fire department to begin a serious investigation into the targeting of the Liboffs’ sign. Police and fire officials have assured the Liboffs that they have their full support.
All the vandalism and threats have taken a toll on the Liboffs. “It hit me pretty hard this last time physically and emotionally,” Dee said. “This is not the country I believed in and couldn’t wait until I was old enough to vote. We must save our freedom. Socialism and communism are a deep cancer eating up the dreams of our children’s future.”
Dee notes that there are also good people in the neighborhood who have expressed support and sympathy for their troubles as well. So the sign remains.
“I worked on that beat up. battle-scarred banner and it is up again with a warning poster in English and Spanish saying, ‘Smile, you are on camera and this area is being investigated,’” Dee said.
As we pray for America these “40 days,” Let us pray for those on the front lines like Pamela Geller, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin. Let us pray for those citizens, who like Allen West before them, are standing for election to restore America. And let us pray for unknown patriots like Dee and Gene Liboff who find themselves in a real line of fire simply because they are doing what they can to restore America and to restore Liberty herself.
