I Share Sonnie Johnson’s Reaction About Obamacare Advocates Doing “God’s Work”

Recently, President Obama told his supporters advancing the cause of Obamacare that they are doing “God’s work.” It will surprise exactly zero of you that I wholeheartedly disagree that a government program eliminating health care options for struggling Americans, dramatically increasing their costs, reducing wages and the workforce, and forcing more people to depend on government instead of God as their Provider and Great Physician is somehow doing “God’s work.”

I’m not the only one who thinks this.

At a fifth anniversary celebration of the Tea Party, Breitbart’s Sonnie Johnson offered her perspective in an emotional and moving speech. You should watch the entire speech (included at the bottom of this post) in which she said,

My enemy is not a man. My enemy is any philosophy that is shaped by or exalts the teachings of Karl Marx. Karl Marx had two main goals: to destroy capitalism and to dethrone God. …

See, you don’t have to pray for sustenance in Jesus’ name, because government gives you food and housing. You don’t have to pray for health in Jesus’ name, because government gives you Obamacare. You don’t have to pray for morality in Jesus’ name, because a progressive will tell you what’s right and wrong. … You no longer have to pray in Jesus’ name, because now you have government.

And, consequently, government has you.

A while back, I wrote an article titled “The Progressive Left’s Secular Theocracy,” which echoes Johnson’s sentiment. From the article:

In a town hall meeting in 2010, Representative Pete Stark (D-CA) said that the federal government “can do most anything in this country.” In other words, it is Almighty.

This basic view of government—that it should wield unlimited power over every aspect of its citizens’ lives—is the opposite of the Founders’ intention for We the People to largely self-govern as free individuals. But the left brazenly advances the Almighty version instead, wanting and expecting government to address all societal ills (both real and imagined), acting as America’s Provider, Comforter, Father, Hope, Foundation, Great Physician, Owner of All Things, Judge, One and Only Savior, and Ruler, who is the Beginning of All Wisdom and Worthy of All Praise. …

[T]hey are erecting a kind of secular theocracy in which government is god, ascribing to it all the attributes listed above that typically are used to describe the True God.

So what happens if the Big-Government Disciples ultimately get their way?  What does it mean for the rest of society if the government succeeds in a taking over of every aspect of our lives and fully controlling, for example, the distribution of health care and energy (a goal that is dangerously close to being met)?

Easy: we become their servants.

Freedom of choice, thought, and expression will vanish completely.  We will all be forced to worship at the altar of their secular theocracy, serving it in the manner it commands—or suffer its wrath.

Sonnie Johnson ended her powerful speech with a prayer on the Tea Party in Jesus’—not government’s—name. Again, I echo her sentiment, ending this post with the final sentence from my other article:

May freedom-lovers everywhere unite to defeat the Big-Government Disciples and dismantle their secular theocracy before they grow powerful enough to execute a Judgment Day on us all.

  1. There are 33 industrialized countries in the world. 32 have Universal healthcare. Without ObamCare, the only country that does not is the USA.

    It is very interesting for this blog to imply by it’s silence, that it is “righteous” for our government to provide healthcare for Wall St. to the tune of $85 Billion dollars a month, calling it QE, but we cannot make sure that affordable healthcare is available to our poor and what is left of the middle-class.

    When has the Tea Party ever condemned the continuing bailout of Wall St.? To the tune of over a trillion dollars a year! When has the Tea Party ever addressed corruption in our government at all levels?

    Isn’t it oblivious that some people prefer to have their mind controlled and poisoned by the “Fuhrer” of hate radio? Is he not the real leader of the Republican Party?

    Being a woman, perhaps Sonnie would comment on the Republican Party’s refusal to address our nations inequality towards women. How does Sonnie feel about doing the same, or better work than a man, and being paid less due to her gender?

    • Gene, I’m not sure which Tea Partiers you’ve been talking to, but every single one I know — and it is many — are driven to cleanse Washington of all corruption, starting with the Republican Party. That’s why tons of Tea Party candidates have popped up all across America, challenging entrenched Republicans in their primaries (such as Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Lindsey Graham, Thad Cochran, to name only a few). The Tea Party HATES bailouts of all kinds, but especially for Wall Street and big business. Ask any Tea Partier what they think about TARP or Quantitative Easing (I wrote about both in my book, “Saving America” — you should check it out), and they will gladly tell you. My guess is, though, that you haven’t spoken to many or read any of their blogs, because you would already know this if you did.

      Crony Capitalism — which is fostered by both parties at all levels — has got to go, and I’m glad to hear you share the Tea Party’s viewpoint on that. If you’re sincere about this, you will very easily find many in the Tea Party movement who will stand with you against corruption in both parties. They won’t stand with you, however, on government intervention in health care. That merely serves to drive up costs, make health care less accessible, damage our already sputtering economy, further explode our incomprehensible national debt, and give our already overly corrupt, power-hungry government even more power over our lives.

  2. I wanted to let Sonnie Johnson that I think she is terrific! I see that she says she is originally from Virginia. Where if Virginia? Richmond metro area here.

    I also came up with a possible name for a TV show idea. We have all heard the term “Spot On.” I thought that the title “Black On” A hard hitting political show from the black conservative perspective.

    Just an idea.
