On this week's edition of "The Hal Lindsey Report," we're going to stay right here in the United States. Unfortunately, it's a United States I'm recognizing less and less every day.
One would have thought that with the election of America's first black President, the use of the race card would be greatly diminished. It seems the opposite is true. In fact, since the election of 2008, I'm hearing the charge of 'racism' thrown around more than ever before in my memory. And more often than not, those charges seem to flow from 'left' to 'right.'
You may be surprised to learn that, contrary to popular opinion, the left may be far more racist and intolerant than the right has ever been. The strategy of the left is obvious. Broad brush everything the right believes and does as 'racist' or arising from deep-seated racism. By doing so, the liberals cow the conservatives into silence.
In just the past few days, two major judiciary figures have come face-to-face with this issue -- and both are considered members of the far left. This suggests that perhaps the darkest racism of all lurks in the high halls of power.
This week, I'm going to discuss the 'racism ploy' in greater detail. It may be the left's greatest tool in their struggle to limit -- or eliminate -- our right of free speech. I'll also look at the alarming growth in the use of the "hate group" label. If you're reading this e-mail, you're already considered an 'extremist' by some branches of our government. Some of you may actually be on a 'watch list.' And we'll all be muzzled by the 'hate crime' and 'hate speech' legislation pending before Congress right now. (Just today Senator Harry Reid smuggled a 'hate crimes' amendment into a defense budget bill currently before the Senate.)
Finally, this week I'm also going to examine the impact of Roe v. Wade on the loss of respect for the sanctity of life in America -- and what that bodes for our future.
