Yes....you heard it right:
DON'T BE NICE!!!
In this age of political correctness that has been established by Marxist/Communists, most of us have become afraid to speak out publicly about elected officials who are liars about who they are, ignore or abuse our constitutional rights, mismanage or steal our money, or who represent the "Party", big business, or their own self interests, instead of us.
Well, hear are 2 comments by two well known people about people who are afraid:
Now Kathryn, just a minute, that's not very nice.
Whoa! Not you too Sam? This name calling has gone too far!
The point is folks....if you call someone who is lying a liar, that is not name calling, it is called the truth.
If you call someone a no good thief who steals, that is not name calling, it is the truth.
If you call someone a Communist or Marxist who espouses or represents Marxist/Communist ideals, that is not name calling, it is the truth.
If a person is behaving in a certain manner, they should be described that way. If not then the real person will never be revealed.
This "be nice"...."don't call names"...."don't make waves" crap is alot of Marxist/Communist bullshit!
Usually, the people who get mad at the truth are the ones not telling it!
All people who run for or hold office know, or should know, they subject themselves to a much higher level of public scrutiny than anyone else, like a goldfish in a bowl. If they have a problem with that, they should NEVER get involved in politics!
Below is some enlightening info:
Justice Douglas wrote in New York Times v. United States, 403 US 713, 728 (1971), that “the dominant purpose of the First Amendment was to prohibit the widespread practice of government suppression of embarrassing information.”
"The general proposition that freedom of expression upon public questions is secured by the First Amendment has long been settled by our decisions.” New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 US 254, 269 (1964). The “debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials.” id., at 270.
Do not be nice; instead tell the tough truths.
At no place in the Sacred Scriptures does it say: be nice! However, popular portrayals of Christianity would lead us to think that the first and greatest commandment is niceness.
The English word "nice" comes from the Latin word "nescius"-meaning ignorant, knowing nothing.
In English usage of the 13th century, nice meant "foolish, stupid, senseless." Today, it means hurting no one's feelings without regard for what is true or good or right.
C.S. Lewis wrote: "We must not suppose that if we succeeded in making everyone nice we should have saved their souls. A world of nice people, content in their own niceness, looking no further, turned away from God, would be just as desperately in need of salvation as a miserable world."
Dag Hammarskjold, former General Secretary of the UN, said, "It is easy to be nice, even to any enemy-from lack of character."
Garrison Keillor said, "You taught me to be nice, so nice that now I am so full of niceness, I have no sense of right and wrong, no outrage, no passion."
Karen Heller wrote, "Niceness if often a veil of lies, a dull blade that can't cut through to the truth."
So, if not nice, what are we to be?
Jesus tells us to be "the salt of the earth." St. Paul writes to Timothy (2 Tim 4:2ff), "Proclaim the word; be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching. For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths..."
Pope John Paul II wrote in EVANGELIUM VITA(#58): "The acceptance of abortion in the popular mind, in behavior and even in law itself, is a telling sign of an extremely dangerous crisis of the moral sense, which is becoming more and more incapable of distinguishing between good and evil, even when the fundamental right to life is at stake. Given such a grave situation, we need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name, without yielding to convenient compromises or to the temptation of self-deception. In this regard the reproach of the Prophet is extremely straightforward: 'Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness' (Is 5:20)." So, do not be nice; tell the truth, whether convenient or inconvenient.
JESUS, publicly called the men in authority at that time, vipers, hypocrites, liars, deceivers. Was HE a name caller or just telling the truth, giving an accurate description of what they were?
