There was, and still is a misunderstanding concerning what indulgences in the Catholic Church are. The best example I can give Civil vs criminal. The forgiveness of Christ means no criminal charges, an indulgence means no civil charges either.
There is however apparently a new indulgence now being offered today, an indulgence that is more impressive and more powerful in our modern society than any Plenary indulgence that prayer and fasting can bring. It’s an indulgence that can turn violence into legit protest, racism into innocent remarks and even overrides the famous words: “If it bleeds it leads”.
It’s the letter “D” and the liberal belief it represents
When one gives lip service to liberalism one is granted the ultimate indulgence
With that letter D next to your name, remarks that would disqualify you from office that would tar you as a racist become innocent.
With the letter D next to your name, you can skip the NAACP convention without judgement.
With the letter D next to your name sexual harassment suits become unnewsworthy and scandals that slay secret service agents and hundreds of innocents can be ignored.
With the letter D next to your name gas prices, unemployment and particularly black unemployment won’t will have no political consequences nor will the media find it worthy of note.
With the letter D you can vote for a tax one session then declare just as it is coming into effect that it’s a job killer that should be stopped yet you won’t be questioned.
And if you service the causes supported by the Letter D the power is even greater.
With the D before your name You can keep the poor in poverty in the cities yet you are considered their defender.
With the D upon you, shootings can take place within the minority community and nobody will march on your town.
With the D no amount of damage from a Hurricane nor tardiness of aid or bureaucratic problems can place blame upon you.
If you serve the D your violent movement and your motives are washed clean, no matter how many incidents of violence you commit.
With that Mystic Letter D, you can beat people on camera, call Black Men “Nigger” and destroy their business property and the media will say they had it coming, assuming they say anything at all.
You can even allow a successful attack on 9/11 and the death of American and with the letter D before your name no blame will fall upon you.
All from the power of the letter D and the indulgences granted by the media who are rewarded from above with fame, status and when high enough on the chain a well funded and a comfortable time for the rest you their days…
…but unlike the true indulgences of the church which come into play at that very time, after that, you’re on your own.
Legal Insurrection doesn’t get it:
The mainstream media is silent about the union violence in general because it does not fit their narrative, and the racist conduct of the union members is off limits. “Progressives” are spreading conspiracy theories that this all was staged.
This is covered by the indulgence, nothing to see here.
Lee Stranahan doesn’t get it either interview not withstanding:
Stacy Misses it too:
NBC/Universal, CBS/Viacom, ABC/Disney, CNN/Time-Warner — the highly profitable conglomerates that run Big Media are seldom called out by the lefties that rant deliriously against “Wall Street.” And whatever the idealism of their employees, there is something quaintly naive in the notion that the goal of Viacom is to tell the truth.
It has nothing to do with profit they support the left thus they are covered by the media indulgence.
