“Lie to Me, I Like It!”

I used to listen to a Christian band called Under Midnight, who were around the early 90’s. Their self-titled concept album is somewhat prophetic of the times we are living in with such corporate greed, visual reality, a push for a totalitarian government, etc. To this day, a line from one of their songs sticks out and reflects the unspoken cry from so many today:

“Lie to me! Lie to me, I like it!”

Today, it seems as though so many do not care about truth. Our society reminds me of baby birds in a nest with their mouths open, ready for mama bird to stuff them with worms. However, in our case, people’s mouths are open to any excrement the media, politicians, celebrities, university professors, the “experts,” etc. will fill them with.

Recently, union reps were upset that Biden put a stop to the building of the pipe line. Somehow they were surprised by this. In such irrational hatred for President Trump, they woofed down the excrement fed to them, although there was plenty of warnings. Bear with me for a moment.

Mind you, I do not care about the source, whether Democrat, Republican, liberal, or conservative—I do not like being lied to (and there are liars in each camp). However, the present Democrat Party (which really is no longer Democratic) is built on nothing but lies and deception. It astounds me that so many can stomach the ramblings of the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Don Lemon, the View, Hollywood, etc. 

While I do not like everything about Trump, I do care about truth. For four years Trump was hammered by the aforementioned. The media and Hollywood were despicably ruthless in their attacks (portraying him decapitated or assassinated, saying his son should be locked in a room with a bunch of molesters, etc.). Granted, Trump was not always tactful, but none of his words or behaviors came close to such beastly blood-lust.

For four years we were told he was involved in Russian collusion, only to find out the evidence pointed back to the Democrats. We were repeatedly told how racist he is; yet, throughout the years he has been good friends with many black individuals, and his policies were helping black communities. We were told he is a warmonger, that he was going to lead us into war with North Korea, Iran, and Russia. How many wars did he lead us into? Zero. Nevertheless, the media, Washington, and Hollywood kept portraying him as a monster. But did society ever stop and think, “Wait a minute! The media so lied to us? What the heck???” Nope. Instead:

“Lie to me! Lie to me, I like it!

For a number of years, especially as of late, we are being told that socialism is a beneficial necessity. Ol’ Bernie once stated that he thinks breadlines are a good thing (of course, he does not mean they are good for him). History, even Venezuela today, repeatedly shows socialism only benefits the elite and tramples on the rest who are at their mercy. Yet, do people go to these rallies of Bernie and his bedfellows and protest such lying and hypocrisy? No, they applaud, as they envision an illusionary paradise for free.

“Lie to me! Lie to me, I like it!”

For many years now, our “educators,” (many of whom took upon themselves to “edit” history, erasing certain parts and writing in other parts. They tell us our founders were brutish, and America was not founded on Christian principles (Kirk Cameron has an excellent documentary called, Monumental, I encourage you to watch it). Our forefathers were not perfect, by any means, nor was every individual a Christian. Yet, these editors leave out so much of the truth of these men who honored integrity and virtue (which the “editors” are void of. As of late, some professors are even erasing parts of WWII and saying the Holocaust did not happen. Is there an outrage? No.

“Lie to me! Lie to me, I like it!”

Something else that perplexes me is the fact that Obama, Clinton, James Comey (among others) have done activities which the average American would be imprisoned for (i.e., sending billions of dollars to Iran (a college kid would certainly be questioned if he sent money to the terrorist capital of the world); the deception behind the negligence of the Benghazi situation; dishonesty within investigations. Comey even got some chuckles from an audience when he admitted that the things he did the average person would be in trouble for. To be fair, there are some Republicans who should be incarcerated because of human trafficking and the like. Why does media trivialize these, and why  is society not outraged? 

“Lie to me! Lie to me, I like it!”

Hollywood blowhards (let me add Chelsea Clinton, since she has done this too) stand up and state how “embarrassed” they are for “being white” and having “white privilege.” Really??? I have seen people embarrassed (and I have experienced embarrassment), and they did not seek the attention of a camera for the world to see, admitting their shame smugly and condescendingly. Furthermore, I have yet heard of these persons who claim to be so ashamed of being “white and privileged” roll up their sleeves to help those who are underprivileged. Liars! Yet, people applaud their shameless, lying hypocrisies. Why? 

Again, “Lie to me! Lie to me, I like it!”

My point is not to defend Trump (or Republicans and conservatives, for that matter). If he has lied, hold him accountable, but do not condemn him for lying while justifying liars who have built their whole careers on lying.
Which brings me to Biden and Harris. They have got to where they are by means of deception. Media has ample evidence of this, they just will not highlight it. Yet, people are upset by some of their decisions. Why? Biden has always been a cheat and a liar, and Harris is not shy about her Marxist views (which has no shame in lying and making use of “useful idiots”).

I do not care whether people share my political or religious views. However, something all of us should care about is truth, honesty, and integrity. It is utterly stupid to ignore these then be surprised when liars and cheats betray us. 

Being lied to used to be something that outraged people. How has being lied to not only become accepted but even applauded? When will society cease to like being lied to?

A truthful witness saves lives, but one who breathes out lies is deceitful. ~ Proverbs 14:25

Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has stumbled in the public squares, and uprightness cannot enter. ~ Isaiah 59:14
