"So he answered, 'Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.' And Elisha prayed, and said, 'Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.' Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw." - 2 Kings 6:16-17
Every so often, I receive a word from the Holy Spirit that shifts the atmosphere in which I dwell.
Back in 2016, He asked me to launch a virtual ministry with a message that focused on revival and reformation. I will never forget our initial conversation.
“You want me to launch a virtual ministry?" I asked. "Have You seen what people have written about me online? And you want me to bring this message online?”
Of course, I knew the answers to these questions. But I found it quite ironic that He would request such a feat given my controversial story.
At that point, I set out to deliver that empowering message, teaching women in particular about our need to rely on the Holy Spirit in this hour as He brought us into this deeper level.
I taught them about revivals of the past and what we needed to do to position ourselves for this outpouring, the one promised to us over 100 years ago.
The empowering message resonated strongly, because most of my listeners at the time assumed God would use folks whom they considered “fit.”
But I began sharing that in this last hour, God would use the least of these to carry out His assignments: people who had hard, difficult, scandalous stories.
It didn’t matter.
Anyone who said yes to God would be used for greatness in this next hour.
My life is simply a living epistle, proving this core principle.
It's not often I bring other guest writers to the Beloved E-Mail Class or my main blog.
I'm strict about the content I re-publish, because I don't always trust folks on the Right to deliver accurate insight.
But when I see fellow Black Conservatives putting in the work to educate the base on what's happening in Black communities, I have to share.
Earlier this morning, Nicole Pinkston, my media manager for the Conscious Conservative Media Network, dropped a FIRE article inside her channel.
She discussed the recent "investment" the Biden-Harris administration made into minority communities as a way of providing "racial equity."
Now, before Conservatives start whining over the race talk again, understand why it's important to address "racial equity."
Remember how I told you repeatedly, "Progressivism is NOT charity. It is oppression."
When you study Black History, you see how government systemically oppressed Black Americans. Such racist policies often emerged at the hands of Democrat/Progressive leaders.
(I will address Republicans' hand in the oppression another day.)
As such, today's Democrat leaders are "attempting" to "rectify" these racial inequalities by redistributing "racial equity" or ownership in the form of equal opportunities for Black Americans.
But look how they're delivering this "equity" to Black Americans:
No, they are providing "equity" or ownership access to MORE DRUG USAGE.
We couldn't make up this current moment, even if we tried.
But I want to let Nicole give you more perspective. Her article provides other sources to help you better understand the current political climate and why now continues to be the perfect opportunity for Conservatives to sell "racial equity" in the form of:
The highest level of intelligence is creativity and ingenuity...
Both traits are also characteristics of those whom society considers strange, weird, or eccentric.
Yet those who develop the habit of generating new ideas to solve current problems, these are the masters the world remembers.
I consider myself an intelligent person, not because I know a lot of knowledge, but because I understand how to apply that knowledge to manifest creative ideas that others are too afraid to mention.
For me, every good and perfect idea comes from the Holy Spirit. While many people refer to such inspiration as the "Universe," I call Him by name and I teach my online members to do the same.
Developing unique ideas and solutions to the problems we encounter is essential to our growth and civilization. Yet too few people actually tap into their creative genius to discover how they can impact the world in which they live.
This lesson applies especially to the modern Black Conservative Movement and the individuals who comprise it.
In this empowering post, I want to teach about the power of presenting unique resolutions to the problems some Americans encounter in this country. More specifically, I want to discuss reparations and how Conservatives can develop more effective solutions based on the values we embrace.
If we learn to do things differently while presenting answers based on conservative values, we will revolutionize the Republican Party and see a dramatic increase in Black Americans voting Red.
When I first began my political commentary “career,” one of the primary questions I received from White Conservatives was, “Why does everything have to be discussed through race and skin color?”
Other questions proceeded such as:
These nonsensical questions emerged from Conservatives’ inability to recognize how some Americans were treated differently in this country because of racist, systemic policies.
Oh, Beloved Conservatives will attest to a point in American history when racism was much more overt.
But they refuse to acknowledge the ongoing oppression that comes as a result of those foundational, historical racist policies.
For Black Americans today, we have a unique culture and experience. Our history binds us together, even if we live in different parts of the country. For this reason, you will see many of us call each other brothers and sisters, although we may not be related by blood.
The recent events surrounding the death of black men at the state’s hands have put America in another race uproar.
Couple this with the ongoing riots and protests, it seems we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes that hold our nation back from upward mobility.
To the unconscious — those not in tune with the Spirit — the destruction is a result of blanketed racism. But to the conscious — the ones who understand the spirit and temporal world — we see things differently.
In 2019, I brought the Kingdom message to the people via social media. I wrapped that message in a gift called Conscious Black Conservatism. I told the people, “If we do things God’s way, we will get His results.”
At first, the masses mocked the message. But study any movement from the Scriptures, and you will discover God is able to deliver and mobilize by a few.
It did not matter that my voice seemed small and insignificant.
All of Heaven backed the prophetic message.
The oppressive movements — even within the conservative camp — were much larger than the Conscious One.
They had more financial backing.
They had millions more people.
But we remained steadfast in the Spirit.
And just as I prophesied years ago, I proved to the people that in this movement, during this time, no man would get this glory. We were going to do things God’s way.
I preach this message all day, every day in Twitter Class: The law of sowing and reaping is always in effect.
It seems the more I preach this message, the more Conservatives double-down on their destructive rhetoric. And it never fails: the law of sowing and reaping comes back to smack us into reality.
Months ago, fellow Conscious Ones and I blasted Conservatives for their celebratory statements surrounding "Stop and Frisk." I wrote an extensive piece on this a while ago, especially as Mike Bloomberg came under fire for the destructive policy he implemented years ago.
At the time, the Conservative camp made excuses as to why Black Americans should have their rights violated. Their responses were disgusting:
They had the audacity to double down on their rhetoric, even pulling support from their favorite Black Conservative pundits.
Imagine: A platform that preaches about the need to preserve the Constitution now arguing that certain fellow Americans should have their rights stripped on the basis of race.
(I guess those colorblind shades got lost in the shuffle somewhere.)
Well, like a rushing, mighty wind, the Law of Sowing and Reaping swooped in to bring Conservatives a healthy dose of Karma. She came to remind Conservatives that when you celebrate the violation of rights for a group of Americans, you can expect your rights to be violated next!
And that's what I want to tackle in this week's Conscious Conservative post.
The Moral High Ground in Conservatism
For more than four years, I have been on the front lines of the Black Conservative social media movement. Before that, I had always been a Republican voter. Conservatism is all I know; and over the years, I have watched as my value system empowered me to conquer the insurmountable.
Conservatism is built upon the idea of the individual.
We seek to preserve the individual rights above the collective; and at times, this individualism translates into individual thinking.
Among the most prominent talking points within the Black Conservative Movement is the idea that Black Conservatives are the true "free thinkers." The other 90% are locked in mental bondage simply because they vote Democrat.
In this space, this is the moral high ground. And any Black Conservative who ascribes to conservative politics is seemingly superior in intellect than other Black Americans.
Now, perhaps it's because I've spent so many years in the public space, but I have never ascribed to such beliefs. In fact, such thinking would have prevented me from helping hundreds of scholars graduate from high school. If I believed Black people were intellectually inferior to me because of our political differences, my scholars would not have loved me as they did.
So, at times, when I see the Blexit babies use their platforms to suggest certain Black people are "less than," I worry that their words will come back to haunt them. This leads me into the recent discourse that took place on Twitter.
