Last night, the American people made history. Next January, Barack Obama will be sworn-in as the first African-American President of the United States. And from a purely racial perspective, that’s a good thing. Although this election will not heal all of our nation’s racial wounds, it at least signals that the wounds don’t have to be permanent.
Unfortunately, the voters also made another kind of history.
During the cold war, the communists always claimed that we were foolish to worry about them trying to conquer us militarily. They said there was no need for that because they had the intent and the patience to take us over through an internal revolution. The conquest of America was not to be accomplished with bullets but with ballots.
We should have listened. But we didn’t, and soon the most powerful political office in the world will be handed over to an avowed socialist. This morning, in some fetid corner of hell, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and Joe Stalin are toasting each other.
Although the polls should have prepared us for this, it is still hard to imagine how a nation founded by statesmen like Jefferson, Madison and Hamilton could decay into one run by socialist whores like Obama, Pelosi and Reid. But that’s what we’ve come to.
For my brothers and sisters in the pro-life movement, I would like to offer a little perspective on this situation. Before you decide to take a bath with your toaster, remember that God is still in control. He is not holed-up in some obscure section of heaven pacing back and forth and wringing His hands desperately trying to figure out what His next move should be. We’re the only ones doing that.
Be assured that I am not trying to downplay the significance of what just happened. Besides being a Marxist, Barack Obama is the most rabidly pro-abortion, morally defective and completely unqualified person to ever be given the keys to the Oval Office. This man is thoroughly evil and I have little doubt that we are likely entering into the most dangerous period in the history of our country. On the 20th of January, 2009, the fox will not be guarding the henhouse – he will be inside the henhouse.
Having said that, we need to recall that we’ve been through something similar to this before. When Slick Willie Clinton and his charming little bride took over, the wailing and gnashing of teeth that ensued from the pro-life community would have frightened the sandals off of anyone in the Old Testament. But eventually, we got up off the canvas and went back to work. The result was that, in the following eight years, more abortion clinics closed than at any other time in the history of our movement and the abortion rate plummeted.
The fact is, the Clintons could not beat us even when they turned the United States Department of Justice into a private police force for the abortion industry – and Barack Obama is not going to beat us now. We should also acknowledge the possibility that, had McCain won, large segments of the pro-life movement would have gone into hibernation. After all, we’ve done it before. But since McCain didn’t win, none of us are sitting back and relying on him to do our work.
So let me tell you what’s going to happen now.
Even on this dark and sickening morning, you and I are going to walk onto the battlefield and fight. Our mission will not be to merely defeat our enemies, but to drive them into the cold hard ground. We will settle for nothing less than total victory because that’s the only way the killing will stop. And if we don’t win today, we are going to return to the battlefield tomorrow with that same attitude and that same resolve. And we will continue to return every day until God either calls us home or the killing ends.
Look, we all know that the pro-life movement has its warts. It is not uncommon for us to do really stupid things and we are always fighting with each other. But for all we do wrong, there are two things you never have to doubt. First, we are on the right side of the battle and, second, we will never surrender. We survived the Billary Clinton juggernaut because we prayed like everything depended on God and fought like everything depended on us. We will now survive Comrade BO for the same reason.
Are there danger signs? You bet. Do we need to be concerned about the Supreme Court, the Freedom of Choice Act and socialized medicine paying for abortions? Absolutely. Did our task just get harder? No doubt about it. But the only thing that really matters, and the one thing we must never forget, is that when God told us that the gates of hell would not prevail against us, He didn’t say anything about it being easy. He was simply promising us the victory if we were willing to fight for it.
So now we go forward in that spirit, always mindful that this was never a war between the pro-choice forces and us. From the first killing, it has been a war between the pro-choice forces and the unborn. You and I are just soldiers who volunteered to fight on the side of the babies. We didn’t start this war, it doesn’t belong to us, and we won’t end it. If you understand that, and if you understand that God is the only General of the Army in which we serve, then you have no reason to be discouraged.
Today, over 3,000 helpless American babies are lined-up for execution and more than 3,000 are scheduled to be killed every day in the future. When we signed-up for this fight, what we were saying is that those babies could count on us. Well, last night that commitment was challenged. To meet it, we will have to quit whining about the election, do our duty and put our trust in God. You and I are not children and we are not fragile. We don’t need self-pity and we don’t need hand-holding. What we need right now, is to stand up and tell Barack Obama – in a clear and defiant voice – the same thing Winston Churchill once told another morally-bankrupt despot: You do your worst and we’ll do our best.
