Many commentators on both the normie-right and the far-right have begun to question Trump’s ability to “make America great again.” While I certainly was glad to see Trump’s “America first” position challenge Jewish neoconservatism in the GOP, I do not believe it was ever rational to expect widespread national revival without first experiencing national repentance.
For the last several decades (or longer) our people around the world have been burning through the accumulated capital of our Christian heritage. Our people have become more sinful and rebellious with each generation, which has caused our societies to decay ever more rapidly. While Trump’s base has a sense of lost identity, of economic and cultural decline, they do not, as far as I can tell, recognize that their own apostasy and addiction to sin are the cause of this decline.
Thus while the Jewish left frets about an increase in “racism” and white identity in the Trump years, one thing they do not yet have to worry about is a Christian revival.
Earlier this year Vice President Pence made comments suggesting that faith is still strong in Trump’s America, but a report on these comments by the BBC show that Pence was being unreasonably optimistic (or simply dishonest):
According to Greg Smith, associate director for religion research at the Pew Research Center, Mr Pence’s claims do not appear follow the numbers.
“The data we do have do not suggest a recent increase in the share of Americans who are highly religious,” Mr Smith told the BBC.
“The vast majority of Americans do say they believe in God, but those numbers are ticking downward,” he added.
As for Mr Pence’s suggestion that more Americans are going to church in modern times? Aside from sheer population differences from 1776 to now, the figures do not support that claim either, according to Mr Smith.
“We’ve begun to see in recent years smaller but noticeable declines in the share of Americans who say they believe in God, who say religion is important to them in their personal lives, who say they pray every day and we’ve seen declines in the share of Americans who say they attend religious services regularly,” he said.
A 2017 study published in Sociological Science showed that those who are intensely religious are still going to church consistently and frequently, but once-a-week attendance is dropping.
Mr Smith also noted the data shows the number of Americans identifying as atheist, agnostic or nothing in particular is “growing very, very rapidly”.
A painful result of the loss of faith in America is the shocking increase in suicide and drug overdose deaths amongst the white population in recent years.
From the WSJ:
Life expectancy for Americans fell again last year, despite growing recognition of the problems driving the decline and federal and local funds invested in stemming them. Data the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Thursday show life expectancy fell by one-tenth of a year, to 78.6 years, pushed down by the highest annual increase in suicides in nearly a decade and a continued rise in deaths from powerful opioid drugs like fentanyl.
Not only has MAGA not decreased the number of suicides, it has not even slowed the rate of increase. We have no right to expect that God will bless us when our people draw farther and farther away from Him. The cultural filth that the Jewish elite are peddling is actually quite fitting for a nation so rotten in its soul that it turns to atheism, antinomianism, drug addiction and suicide. Pray for repentance before praying for MAGA.
