By Their Fruit . . .

When the Restoring Honor rally on August 28th came to an end, one of the more remarkable features noted by those who witnessed it was the cleanliness of the grounds. Even though approximately 500,000 people had filled the spaces between the Lincoln Memorial and the WWII Memorial, the entire area was practically spotless.

Not so with the late, unlamented One Nation rally. Here is one sample of what this crowd left behind:

And another . . .

And another . . .

These pictures actually aren’t the worst of the mess. I saw a video one person took of the WWII Memorial. Participants in this rally transformed this revered site into a huge garbage pit. That says a lot about the worldview of those who attended—they have no respect for those who gave their lives to combat totalitarian fascism.

I thought these were the people who are so environmentally conscious and who want to save the planet. It looks like they are the ones from whom the planet needs to be saved.

Why did they trash our nation’s capital? I believe I have the answer:

Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

In my view, the leaders of this latest rally were false prophets. They spoke of peace and jobs, but they were inspired more by socialist and communist philosophies and moral perversions[see my post from Monday]. Their fruit is evident, and it is time we call them out for what they really are.
