Here’s When I’ll Support His Sham Military Parade

So the President has instructed the Pentagon that wants a Military Parade, “like the one of France.”

I’m all for it.

We’ll just need to do a few things first:

Here’s when I’ll support a parade:

When the concentration camps close.
When The President stops attacking the FBI, Democratic Leaders, the Free Press, and individual citizens on social media.

When LGBTQ people are allowed to serve the Military (not to mention, marry, adopt, and use the restroom) as they desire.
When every American has access to healthcare.
When the NRA gets less political influence than mothers of children murdered by guns.
When the President apologizes for dodging the draft multiple times.

When Russian sanctions are levied.
When Puerto Rico’s residents all have electricity and food and water.
When the President releases his taxes.
When black athletes can peacefully protest without being vilified by the White House.

When the President stops giving carte blanche to the lunatic fringes of the Christian Right to legislatively weaponize their religion.
When Muslims are not made into terrorist caricatures to leverage fear.
When the President stops Tweeting and golfing and Tweeting and golfing.
When Sarah Sanders stops lying for a living.

When the people who come here fleeing oppression and violence from their Governments, aren’t met with the same from this one.
When racists and Nazis aren’t called “fine people” by the Commander-in-Chief.”
When FoxNews isn’t State TV.
When we spend 18 billion on roads and bridges, and not walls.

When the President stops openly lobbying for a Government shutdown.
When the GOP remembers we’re a nation of immigrants.
When our National Parks aren’t getting subdivided out to contractors.
When the GOP stops thinking women’s autonomy over their own bodies is up for debate.

When our Secretary of Education supports public education.
When the opioid crisis is addressed with appropriate funding and qualified human beings.
When the President’s assault accusers are heard.
When Robert Mueller is allowed to do his job.
When the GOP stops campaigning for sexual predators.

When people of color are allowed to protest freely.
When ICE stops raiding hospital rooms and targeting people on commuter trains.

When the GOP admits that Climate Change is real and that “clean coal” is preposterous.
When all migrant children are reunited with their parents.
When the President stops favoring murderous dictators over American intelligence.

Only when these things happen, will this President earn the slightest bit of respect and a microscopic fraction of the lofty title he holds and has thus far proven unworthy of—let alone the nonsensical, wasteful, PR stunt, wanna-be Dictator display of phony allegiance that he’s asking for.

As it is, he is a disgrace to this nation, in contempt of its Constitution, a mockery of the Christian faith he claims—and most of all, a clear and present danger to the very men and women of this country who serve its Military; those who are made most vulnerable by his daily recklessness and incompetence.

Sure, I’ll support your ridiculous sham of fake patriotism, Mr President.

You let me know when you’ve taken care of this list and I’ll book a flight and I’ll be in the front row.

Until then, you know what you can do with your parade…

  1. I think that it would be very nice if the money that was going to be spent on a military extravaganza to make Trump feel important, that the money would be spent on our homeless veterans (you know, the one’s who volunteered to serve this nation). Spend the money on VA hospitals. Let’s honor those who actually served (not Cadet Bone Spurs).

  2. ***SLAM DUNK!!!*** This deserves a *SERIOUS* thumbs up. For real because I don’t believe what I’m seeing. Right now, I gotta to honestly ask, “WTF happened to christianity?!?!”

  3. “The servant of the Lord must not participate in quarrels, but must be kind to everyone [even-tempered, preserving peace, and he must be], skilled in teaching, patient and tolerant when wronged. He must correct those who are in opposition with courtesy and gentleness in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and be led to the knowledge of the truth [accurately understanding and welcoming it… ”

    • J.C.,

      I’m guessing that you disagree with John P’s opinion, but are instead trying to put him in the wrong by tone-policing him with some out-of-context Bible-bashing. But how about the OT prophets railing against the corruption and oppression of their rulers, or indeed Jesus attacking the Pharisees in very strong language, in verses you are no doubt familiar with?

      Dishonestly deploying a rationale that you don’t apply consistently is a fallacy I call “back-to-front reasoning”.

  4. I agree with everything you have said. I am 75 years old and this president is the most unfeeling person who has no compassion and who shows signs of racism. I am Afro-American with a very mixed heritage due to slavery in this country. The blight of racism will never have a chance to go away with this president in office, who encourages acts of racism. Thank you so much, Pastor John.

  5. tRump got 5 military deferments for bone spurs that have never been mentioned in any of his 2 medicals that were made public. tRump has profaned the Office of the President of the United States and destroyed it’s integrity possibly beyond repair on the world state. As a draft dodger he profanes every military women or man who has served. He has profaned every servicemen or woman who have lost their lives in the line of duty. He profanes every veteran who struggles with the aftermath of the challenges they encountered as a result of serving their country. He profanes America by wanting a disgusting display of fascism like the man who he continues to pick fights with Kim Jong-un. He honors the man whose book he kept in a drawer next to his bed: Hitler. He wants to be like his BFF-Putin.

  6. “You will taste my Mercy.”
    “Today you will see that My strength never fails you. For many days you have felt that your progress was so slow, but from today forward, you will soar swiftly like an eagle in the sky. But I am asking one thing of you today, that you would learn to forgive, even as I have forgiven you. The gift I give to you that will make you fly, is the gift of forgiveness. Freely take this gift and give it away. I have died for all and forgiven My enemies, even praying for those who pierced Me.

    You will find in heaven many people that will surprise you, for in their later years I came to them with this gift and they received Me as their Redeemer, the One who took away their sin. Now today you will extend a hand of mercy to those who have pierced you, those who have brought pain into your life. For as you forgive you will fly.

    You will taste the gift of mercy as never before, but only as you give this gift of mercy to others. I will take that dark veil away from your heart and you will begin to see others in the light of grace, the beautiful light of mercy. Even as I have freely forgiven the most vile offender, I call you to walk with Me and find that My strength will not fail you– the strength to forgive. This is the new ministry I am calling you to embrace. You will need My grace to accept this calling but it will bring life into your soul, for My life will cause you to overflow with great love expressed as you forgive.

    Today you will have opportunities to say the words that I once spoke and My servant Stephen also spoke, “Father, forgive them.” As you release this forgiveness I will release the pain from your heart and you not feel it again. My grace will wash and cleanse and empower you to forgive and forgive and forgive, until you no longer keep records of wrongs against you.

    Even as I cooked breakfast for the one who denied Me three times, you will show mercy. Today you will learn that My strength will never fail you, for you will taste the sweetness of My mercy.”
    – Brian Simmons

    Psalm 34:8-9 The Passion Translation:
    “Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God.
    Experience for yourself the joyous mercies he gives
    to all who turn to hide themselves in him.
    Worship in awe and wonder,
    all you who’ve been made holy!
    For all who fear him will feast with plenty.”

    • Let me get this straight. Peter denied some guy named Brian Simmons three times—so Brian cooked breakfast for Peter three times? I guess there really is a free lunch…uh…breakfast in this world.

      Just go out and find Brian Simmons, deny him three times, and you’ll get three free breakfasts out of it. What a deal!!! Denny’s is sure to be jealous!!!

  7. If the Libs and Progressives and Trump-Haters are going to be whining about this parade, then that’s a good sign I ought to support it.

  8. John, as a Christian how do you want us to react to all the sinful things going on in the world. There are standereds the Bible and Jesus want us to follow. If anything goes against these standards, are we suppose to be silent? We go in front of a Judge if we break any laws and we pay for our transgressions. A lot of people don’t know the laws of this land and and the Bible, and don’t care and do as they please. Don’t you Think if we are supposed to love our brother we would inform them of Jesus’s teachings and tell them what is sinful.
    Matt. 18:15 Jesus said, “ If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you.”
    Matt. 15:19. Jesus said, “ Out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultry, fornications ,theft, false testimony, slander. These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.
    Christians have a right to voice our views as you do.

    • You seem to imply that John isn’t a Christian. I hope I have misinterpreted you. If not, that indicates that you are trotting out that old, stale, and offensive meme that only those who agree with you are Christian. I totally reject that.

  9. Does anyone else notice that the only women Trump has believed and even used as political props are the ones that accused Bill Clinton? Every woman that has accused a Republican is a liar and ruining innocent lives. I know, it’s just Trump being Trump. I don’t know how anyone would say he disrespects women.

    I read another great analogy yesterday.

    Conservatives punch downward blaming the least powerful for all the bad things. Liberals punch upward at the ones who actually hold the wealth and power to do bad things.

  10. I’ll go to that damn parade when white abortionists stop killing black babies.

    Add that one to your list, JP.

  11. I’m stealing your list. Hope that’s OK. I have my own, been making it for a few weeks, but it is half as long; and therefore, yours is twice the bestest or, if using realz math, N*10 great gobbledygooks more killer. Thanks!
