Lest we forget —
“We are the ruling race of the world. . . .
We will not renounce our part in the mission of
our race, trustee, under God, of the civilization of the world. . . .
He has marked us as his chosen people. . . .
He has made us adept in government that we may
administer government among savage and senile peoples.”
(Alfred Beveridge, Senator from Indiana, circa 1900)
With that thesis in mind, we do hereby offer a handful of currents which seem to support Herr Beveridge’s “brilliance.”
And since I always try to save the “best” for last, I’ll close with this li’l Nugent gem:
A decorated and dedicated draft-hero-singing-star-NRA-dude like Nugent would definitely know, right? Oh well, we need to remember that underneath all the hate and vitriol lies the love of God. Plus, as Karen Hughes, Dubya’s Undersecretary of State for Diplomacy once pointed out, “. . . our Constitution declares that we are ‘one nation under God’.” So that means all is well, as long as we don’t stray and . . . well, you know. Christian nation and all.
“If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God,
then we will be a nation gone under.”
