God’s Army? Is it Really?

According to some conservatives, there is an “Invasion” going on at the Mexican Border with Texas. The way they describe this so-called invasion stinks to high heaven with false beliefs that are the result of trying to support Texas Governor Greg Abbott in his fight to violate what seems like federal law and human rights. Protestors, calling themselves “God’s Army,” of all things, landed at the Mexican border in a convoy of vehicles that is about as ludicrous as anything can be. They are playing a race card using God’s name. Of course, they describe themselves in typical bloated language that hides their true intentions and has racist undertones. “God’s Army” calls itself patriots, law-abiding citizens, freedom-loving Americans, veterans, and other niceties in much the same way that the same people called themselves when they attacked the Capitol and tried to overthrow the government at the wishes of a wanna-be dictator. The caravan is not fooling us since many vehicles are carrying Vote for Trump signs and using religion to cloak their true political agenda. Many residents oppose the convoy and have indicated that such a parade will only worsen a bad situation. The group’s claim that thousands would join has turned out to be a wild-eyed estimation of the actual numbers. The convoy has been supported by theories expressed by Alex Jones, who has had people on his shows claim all sorts of wild, unproven theories. The convoy was originally called “The “Take Our Border Back Convoy” but was …

According to some conservatives, there is an “Invasion” going on at the Mexican Border with Texas. The way they describe this so-called invasion stinks to high heaven with false beliefs that are the result of trying to support Texas Governor Greg Abbott in his fight to violate what seems like federal law and human rights. Protestors, calling themselves “God’s Army,” of all things, landed at the Mexican border in a convoy of vehicles that is about as ludicrous as anything can be. They are playing a race card using God’s name. Of course, they describe themselves in typical bloated language that hides their true intentions and has racist undertones.

“God’s Army” calls itself patriots, law-abiding citizens, freedom-loving Americans, veterans, and other niceties in much the same way that the same people called themselves when they attacked the Capitol and tried to overthrow the government at the wishes of a wanna-be dictator. The caravan is not fooling us since many vehicles are carrying Vote for Trump signs and using religion to cloak their true political agenda. Many residents oppose the convoy and have indicated that such a parade will only worsen a bad situation. The group’s claim that thousands would join has turned out to be a wild-eyed estimation of the actual numbers. The convoy has been supported by theories expressed by Alex Jones, who has had people on his shows claim all sorts of wild, unproven theories. The convoy was originally called “The “Take Our Border Back Convoy” but was changed to attach God to their unholy mission. This type of political scheming is typical of extremist conservatives.

According to Forbes Magazine, “God’s Army is already facing internal friction . . .  multiple tires were slashed on convoy drivers’ cars while they stayed overnight at a hotel, and a person was kicked off one of the convoy’s buses and left on a highway shoulder.”  According to KXAN News, Right-wing conservatives such as “Musician Ted Nugent and former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin made special appearances, both of whom slammed the federal government for what they view as a lack of action on border security.” The term “invasion” is often used by these political characters to describe people who are trying to escape gangs, poverty, and oppressive laws in their countries of origin. Rather than talk about why so many immigrants are trying to come to America, they would rather use bloated terms to rally people for their hidden agenda. The immigrants have been reduced to non-humans by blaming them for seeking a better life when many of the ancestors of these protestors came to America as immigrants for the same reasons.

The federal government is suing Texas and Governor Abbott for razor wire placement and red balloon-type barriers that violate human rights and allow Texas authorities to defy federal law. This will undoubtedly yeast up the political extremists that are trying to call for Texas to leave the United States. With most of the immigrants being people of color, the population is sure to change from a white majority in not too many years. This has resulted in a dog whistle for racist governors and white supremacists to support Abbott in a continued program of busing immigrants to unknown locations with lies about jobs and housing. Residents along the border have called the “God’s Army” a vehicle to “spread hate.”

According to Gazette Newspaper, “Fifteen Republican governors and a conservative convoy of truckers that has dubbed itself “God’s Army” will descend on the southern border . . as part of separate events to draw attention to the illegal immigration crisis. Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) will host leaders from 14 other red states in the McAllen, Texas, area of the Rio Grande Valley . . .  for a briefing on the state’s effort to bolster security at the Mexico border and hold a press conference about the impact of President Joe Biden’s reckless open border policies.”  

The right-wing governors supporting Abbot’s questionable immigration policies are Sarah Huckabee-Sanders (R-AR), Brian Kemp (R-GA), Brad Little (R-ID), Eric Holcomb (R-IN), Kim Reynolds (R-IA), Jeff Landry (R-LA), Tate Reeves (R-MS), Mike Parson (R-MO), Greg Pianoforte (R-MT), Jim Pollen (R-NE), Chris Sununu (R-NH), Kristi Nome (R-SD), Bill Lee (R-TN), and Spencer Cox (R-UT). All of them have also aligned with the more extreme right of the Republican party.

With Trump facing federal and state charges and the election for president coming up in November of this year, we can expect Trump-inspired violence, intimidation at the polls, lies about election fraud, more racism, and a host of conspiracy theories with no proof, but designed to fool the ignorant that exist below 6th-grade reading level.
