Martin Luther King Jr. Said: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Hatred feels good. Let me first admit that. There is a feeling of satisfaction that comes with hatred, unlike any other. However, that feeling quickly turns sour, making your stomach feel uneasy and your mind dark. That’s because hatred accomplishes nothing; hatred poisons your own mind. Nothing can be created with hatred as its driving factor.
The Left commonly uses hateful tactics to intimidate their enemies, because they have nothing substantive to use against you. Case in point: the Texas abortion legislature battle.
According to Life News:
“The paid protesters opposing the late-term abortion ban in Texas are doing more than rallying outside the legislature against the pro-life bill. They’re threatening pro-life state legislators and their staffers. Death threats, harassing emails and phone calls and calls for their daughters to be raped are among the hate targeted at pro-life lawmakers from the small contingent of abortion activists upset that Texas would consider banning abortions on babies at viability.”
And according to the Washington Times: “Pro-choice protesters shouted, ‘Hail Satan!’ as an attempt to drown out pro-lifers’ rendition of ‘Amazing Grace.’“
Let me ask you: What can be accomplished with hate mail? What can be accomplished with hoping for rape? What can be accomplished by chanting “Hail Satan?” It is useless, guttural filth pouring forth from the mouths of those who have within their hearts an overabundance of hate. It constructs nothing. There is no solution offered, nor is there any thoughtful discussion being initiated with words like these.
But the Left cannot abide thoughtful debate or conversation. Their minds are not built to understand anything but that which they already believe. They see their opposition, not as people with souls, personalities, and thoughtful opinions, but as evil, degenerate hate-mongers. With that mindset, true debate will never take place.
That is the main difference between Conservatives and Liberals: Conservatives are willing to engage their opposition with logical arguments, and Liberals only know what they believe. As Sun Tzu said: “know your enemy.”
Conservatives know their opponents. Liberals do not know their opponents. That is why the Left resorts to hatred, and death threats. That’s all they have. They have no information about their opponents’ beliefs, because they cannot comprehend them. It is a neurological block.
The hatred to which the Left resorts will only serve to harden their hearts, creating a cycle of cruelty that cannot be stopped. Whether or not it is this mental block that causes Liberalism, or Liberalism that creates the mental block, it holds their minds captive; it doesn’t allow new information to enter.
We can never resort to their tactics. It is only the truth that can set us free. Darkness cannot drive out darkness, but a single pinpoint of light can drive darkness back into hiding. We have to be better.
