Jentezen Franklin on Democratic Leadership Should Put Their Politics in Quarantine

I remember September 11th vividly. I remember the financial crisis of 2008 vividly. I remember other tragedies that have befallen America, from tornadoes and hurricanes to the Boston marathon bombing.

In the midst of each of these horrific moments, I also remember the spirit of America and the way our communities responded. Many of us dropped everything to help someone. We looked for a need, and we filled it. No questions asked.

We also responded with unity. We pulled together, regardless of religion, race or creed — all that mattered was our humanity.

An added tragedy to this current pandemic is that in addition to the lives lost, or those whose livelihood has been ripped out from under them, hyper-polarization seems to have gone into overdrive, instead of taking a back seat — as it should during any crisis of this magnitude.

It seems that many in the press and especially national leaders of the Democratic Party have never missed an opportunity to blame the President for whatever ails us and this is despite the voluminous praise from Democratic governors on the front-lines of the COVID-19 crisis, like California’s Gavin Newsom.

Some have gone so far as to say the President’s anticipation of re-opening our economy “could lead to violence.” They also continue to try and foment dissent by deploying accusations of racism every chance they can get.

We all know this is absurd — and so do the leaders in the Democratic Party — yet they are even unwilling to lay down their political weapons in the middle of a once-in-a-century pandemic, and this is truly deplorable.

The worst example yet was when Democratic congressional leadership refused to allow the immediate replenishing of funds for the lifeline the federal government has thrown to the nation’s small businesses. All while the backbone of the American economy was begging for more help.

Why? Politics, that’s why. There’s no other logical reason.
