Righteousness has never needed a majority to be heard and to win. We should not be surprised that it only took eight Republicans to bring down Kevin McCarthy, the speaker of the House and, until Tuesday afternoon, the man third in line for the presidency.
Let’s call them “The Gaetzful Eight,” the small band of House Republicans whom Florida’s Matt Gaetz convinced to speak and act on behalf of the people who voted them into office rather than acquiesce to a corrupt status quo.
I’m grateful for their courage. Gaetz, Tim Burchett (Tenn.), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Eli Crane (Ariz.), Nancy Mace (S.C.), Matt Rosendale (Mont.), and Bob Good (Va.) made history on Tuesday afternoon. They held McCarthy accountable for selling out the voters who empowered him, for cutting deals with the uniparty establishment that chooses to ignore and silence the concerns of half of America.
Removing McCarthy as speaker of the House was an act of righteousness. It gives voice to the voiceless. It’s the most significant political act of defiance since the election of Donald Trump in 2016.
But let me be clear. I’m not calling Trump or “The Gaetzful Eight” righteous. They’re not. None of us are. They’re unrighteous tools who occasionally allow themselves to be used to speak and act in the best interest of the people the establishment wants to exploit, oppress, and remove.
The political, corporate, and ideological globalists have demonized American nationalists and the working class. Through fear, medical tyranny, well-organized acts of domestic terrorism, and election “fortifying,” they’ve systematically stripped us of fundamental freedoms and our ability to push back against government overreach.
If we protest in public, the establishment’s FBI informants agitate violence and we get sent to jail.
The establishment stopped Christians from attending church, tricked us into wearing masks, defined citizens with traditional patriotic values as racists, opened our southern border to criminals, and sanctioned sexualizing and confusing children about gender. They took billions of our tax dollars and funneled it to Ukraine. They’re baiting Russia into a nuclear conflict.
The pharmaceutical companies and the Black Lives Matter-LGBTQ Alphabet Mafia dictate and manipulate what can be discussed on public platforms.
That’s why I’m so grateful to “The Gaetzful Eight.”
Sometimes I fall into cynicism. I start to believe America’s problems are unfixable and that the rise of secularism and Marxism cannot be thwarted. “The Gaetzful Eight” reinvigorated me. They made me think of Gideon, his army of 300, and the book of Judges.
What happened in the House on Tuesday reminded me that for righteousness to win, it does not need numbers. It only needs a small band of men and women willing to trust and obey God.
This morning I re-read the story of Gideon and how he saved Israel from the Midianites with trumpets and lanterns. The Midianites had 135,000 soldiers. Israel had 32,000.
Israel was plagued by idolatry, the worship of false gods. Their idolatry caused their “children to do evil in the sight of the Lord.” God allowed the Midianites to conquer and oppress Israel.
God first instructed Gideon to tear down the places where Israelites worshiped Baal and false gods. Gideon obeyed, but he was scared. He tore down the altars at night, hoping he wouldn’t be recognized. The Israelites wanted to kill Gideon. His father had to plead for his son’s life.
After he survived tearing down the places of idol worship, God then instructed Gideon to release every Israeli soldier who was scared. Twenty-two thousand soldiers went home. God said 10,000 soldiers were still too many. He told Gideon to take them to a river and have them drink water. He said send the soldiers home who got on their knees and lapped the water like dogs. Only 300 soldiers used their hands to drink the water.
With those 300 men, Gideon defeated the Midianite army. The noise from the trumpets and the light from the lanterns confused the Midianites. They started fighting among themselves. They started killing themselves and then retreated.
The point is obvious. We don’t need numbers to be heard. We don’t need numbers to win the battle of good versus evil battle occurring in America. We need to obey God. We need to be strategic, smart, and bold.
Our nation is plagued by idolatry. I wrote a column on Monday about how the left is using Taylor Swift and Deion Sanders to completely convert the NFL into a platform that promotes secular and liberal values. Swift and Sanders are idols that advance radical materialism, the matriarchy, abortion, and pop culture debauchery.
I explained that football was built by Christian conservatives and had been an institution that encouraged patriotism, respect for the military and law enforcement, and religious faith. I argued that we should not surrender professional and college football to the left.
I offered a way for us to fight back. I suggested we use American television’s largest platform — the Super Bowl — as a tool to elevate our voices on a multitude of issues.
We’re being silenced. We can’t gather to protest. Corporate and social media platforms diminish or ban our voices. Most politicians refuse to speak for us. Mail-in ballot harvesting has made our elections unreliable and untrustworthy.
Let’s boycott Super Bowl Sunday. Let’s damage Super Bowl TV ratings as a means to draw attention to illegal immigration, transgenderism, the political weaponization of the Department of Justice, the unfair prosecution of January 6 defendants, COVID tyranny, the lack of election integrity, the illegality of the Federal Reserve system, diversity, equity, and inclusion destroying merit, the military, and education, the rampant lawlessness in major cities, the World Economic Forum, and the environmental, social, and governance movement.
I could go on and on. The Bud Light boycott worked. It put a scare into the global corporate forces transitioning America to communism. Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect day to express our dissatisfaction with the uniparty and the corporations that fund our political elites.
It’s a way to make our voices heard. We need a handful of conservative content creators to mimic the courage of “The Gaetzful Eight,” and we could launch an event that speaks for the voiceless and allows us to make demands of the establishment.
This is what the leftists have been doing for decades. They threaten boycotts to shake down the powers that be. We can do the same. Let’s do it Super Bowl Sunday.
