It’s Trump or the Zombie Apocalypse in 2020

Written by Jonathon Clay de Hale 

I was #nevertrump through the primaries and the general election because Trump was an obnoxious boor. I was dismayed by his ad hominem attacks on other candidates, his lack of verbal discipline, and his undeveloped approach to political policy.

The only thing I admired about him was that he didn’t give a rip about refined talking points or toeing the line. During the first Republican debate he said, “I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either.”

But his brawling, bare-knuckles approach wasn’t enough to overcome what I saw as significant character flaws and the question of whether he could be trusted to govern conservatively.

That was then. This is now.

I’ve had two years to evaluate him as president. He still has ugly character flaws, he’s made some questionable policy decisions, he hasn’t built the wall, and he needs better impulse control. But two things have swung my support to Trump.

The first is that he has governed largely as a conservative president. He’s passed tax cuts, eliminated regulations, presided over our dominance as the world’s leading oil producer, spoken out against abortion, appointed originalists (fingers crossed) to the SCOTUS, scrapped the abominable Iran deal, negotiated better international trade deals, confronted the United Nation’s corruption, demanded that NATO allies pay their share of costs, forced the issue with North Korea, moved our Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, and finished off ISIS—all actions that create enough confidence to give him another four years.

The second—and most important—reason that I will vote for Trump in 2020 is that the Democrats terrify me.

I feel about the national Democrat party much as a homeowner would who’s pursued by shrieking hordes of the walking dead. Trapped in his house, he puts his family behind him, frantically boards up windows, piles furniture against doors and prays for deliverance. But the walls are bowing under the relentless assault, and he has no idea how long they’ll hold.

Today’s Democrat party is a rotting corpse masquerading as an American political party. They are, in fact, a full-fledged anti-American political party and their race to the extreme Left over the past two years has been astonishing.

They are now home to anti-constitutional, anti-capitalist, anti-liberty, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, anti-white, and anti-male grievance-mongers who are pro-infanticide, pro-hyper-taxation, pro-reparations, pro-socialism, pro-nanny state, pro-open borders, and pro-gender-confusion.

The Democratic Party champions anything that wrecks our historic American heritage. They suffocate anything that preserves it while proclaiming, “that’s not who we are.”

Nonsense! It’s the Democrats and their certifiably destructive ideas that represent all that we’re not.

In particular, these three Democratic projects should alarm anyone who loves their country and wants to keep it.

The “Russia Collusion” Hoax 

It’s the Democrat party and their toadies in the media that spent the last two years and millions of taxpayer dollars attempting a soft coup d’état against Trump by manufacturing a hoax that accused him of colluding with the Russians to win the election. Adam Schiff and his tin-foil hat brigade promised they had incontrovertible evidence proving Trump was Putin’s vassal. That lie died with the Mueller report, which found no collusion and no obstruction.

This is the worst conspiracy in American history. An outbound administration weaponized national institutions to spy on other Americans under false pretenses in an effort to overthrow a legitimately elected president. Treason is not too strong a word to describe what was done.

Third-World Invasion 

Both parties in Congress have failed us regarding the flood of third-world trespassers now squatting in our country. We can bicker about whether they benefit our nation economically, but there is no argument that they violated our law to be here.

Worse, they bring with them crime, disease, negligible education, low wage skills and a voracious appetite for government welfare.

What’s deeply troubling is that it’s the Democrats who enable their subversion of our legal system. They oppose construction of a wall, they threaten to eliminate ICE, they encourage and tolerate so-called “sanctuary” cities and states, they release criminal aliens rather than cooperate to deport them, they ignore the tax burden on nationals and, worst of all, they invite illegals to vote and govern. In short, Democrats elevate foreigners over our own citizenry.

Sexual Tyranny 

Our nation has devolved into a bathhouse of sexual deviancy that denies objective science and rational thought in favor of the most degenerate forms of carnal pleasure. Unfortunately, conscientious objectors are being pressured to participate in the erotomania.

It’s the Democrats who demand that Christian bakers, florists and banquet hall owners submit to the demands of same sex marriage advocates. It’s the Democrats who favor trans-cultists—those who insist that biological sex has no intrinsic meaning, that a man is a woman if he says he is, and that subjective feelings are the source of reality—over sane Americans who know the difference. It’s the Democrats who issue “guidance” that demolishes centuries of social norms between the sexes. And it’s the Democrats who have made the Equality Act, a proposed law that would subvert the constitutional protections of Christians and women, their top legislative priority.

The undead Democrats press incessantly on the walls of the house like the mindless, lumbering husks they are. The walls are bowed, and we have to wonder if they’ll hold.

As God explained to the prophet Ezekiel, “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one” (22:30). He’s not a prophet, but Trump is standing in the gap, building up the wall, giving us a little more time—not for total political correctness, but to turn from our wicked ways.

It’s either Trump or the zombie apocalypse in 2020. My vote will be for Trump. If you like your country and want to keep it, vote for him, too.

A bold voice for pro-family values!
