The Desecrators: Defining the evil we are all fighting to save America

Matt Schlapp and Deal W. Hudson’s excellent new book called The Desecrators ends with a prayer relevant to our present circumstances. It goes like this, “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.” You might know Matt Schlapp and his wife Mercedes from Fox News and the hosts of CPAC. Good people.   They released this new beauty of a book just ahead of the 2022 CPAC in Orlando, and I noticed people asking me if I was going to have a booth there to promote my own book, The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business. I thought about it, but my life is far too complicated for weekend conventions. I usually have a few hours for things like that, but I am not a sit in a booth and concentrate on one primary topic kind of guy. I am most happy when dealing with massive, big picture stuff where all these subjects are brought in under one large tent of thinking. I read an enormous amount of material. My time is most enjoyably spent reading 3 or 4 books a week to consume the amount of information necessary to consider what has been going on in the world, to us, and to our republic. But reading The Desecrators, I thought it was something extraordinary and even defined as a way to talk about the kind of evil we are dealing with and stepping into the chapter beyond the Book of Revelations into a new day we all deserve. Matt Schlapp and Deal Hudson had put their finger on something, and it was special.  

Matt Schlapp and his wife Mercedes are old political insiders, so it was fascinating to hear them talk about their journey from the Bush White House into becoming Trump supporters and the pain they experienced from their long-time friends along the way who rebuked them because of it. This book, The Desecrators, was very much them coming to terms with the post-election results of 2020, which we all know now was filled with so much trouble. We should have considered the certification process that put Joe Biden in office much more carefully with all the checks and balances that were more than ceremonial. Those checks were there for a reason, and the Joe Biden administration is a painful reminder of the fact that elections have consequences. Stolen elections have catastrophic consequences—to say the least. I remember how my wife and I felt; we packed up our RV and headed out into the deserts of New Mexico. I wrote a book in response to it for many of the same reasons. It was interesting to hear that Matt and Mercedes had similar thoughts and that this book The Desecrators was the result. What makes their book so valuable, I think, is that they are long-time political insiders, about as much of insiders as you can get these days. With all their history in politics and obviously with the help of their friend, Deal, they put their finger on the evil that is after all of us blessed to be born in the USA. The people against us, to name the enemy for clarity, are these Desecrators, people who want to do anything to taint and ruin the founding of America from its inception like some abortion of thought that played out on the world stage. 

It can be overwhelming; we have the drug cartels from the south coming out of Mexico looking to poison all of us, literally. At the World Economic Forum, the Party of Davos is trying to crush our economy using banks as the new tanks and troops to overthrow our country.   We have China which wants communism around the world. We have Russia who wants to restore the old Soviet Empire for many of the same reasons. We have many factions of socialists and outright communists worldwide who want to topple the king of capitalism.   In America, they are represented by the Democrat Party. We have our education system deliberately dumbing down generations of our people. We have countless bands of terrorists worldwide who want to incite fear into our thriving culture. We have vile despots from every corner of the world wanting openly to inflict evil upon us. Up to this point, we have been gracious and accommodating of them all, hoping that they would see the light and follow America into prosperity by being understanding. But to be honest, the opposite has happened. These many groups coming from all directions want only to desecrate our country any way possible and ruin our souls in their very birthplace, and to be done with us forever. Their evil intentions are maniacally sinister in every way, demanding our action. 

I arrived at that conclusion in the deserts of Texas and New Mexico and many other places in the far-flung areas of The United States. In Jackson, Wyoming, I decided to buy that white cowboy hat that I wear everywhere now. For me, it’s the white hat of justice, a beacon to the world that is full of black-hatted bandits and thugs of every kind intent to bring our nation to ruin. I decided after the election of 2020 that I wasn’t going to let that happen. I wasn’t sure how, but upon reading Matt’s book, I saw clearly that I wasn’t alone in those thoughts. They have the same idea, Matt, Mercedes, and Deal, as I do. Even President Trump gets it; he endorsed the book, which is shown on the front cover. Our fight isn’t about policy or even restoring an excellent economy to our country. It is the sheer fight of good against evil, and it’s on a Biblical scale, and nothing short of that. We often talk about fighting for freedom and justice. But I don’t think many people really understand what that means. They feel something about it but have a hard time defining it. They have a hard time defining such a voluminous enemy. Well, they have done that in this book, The Desecrators. What a perfect title. And in this case, you can judge a book by its cover. The statue of George Washington draped in red paint, defiled by the enemies of America.

The enemies of all of us. A cauldron of personalities clearly intent on our destruction and the ruin of all our souls. It’s time we start dealing with these enemies in the way they deserve. We must take a stand for good, justice, and the American way. And it’s time to stop apologizing to these Desecrators for all the reasons they hate us. It’s not our task to explain away that hate or to apologize to them because they feel it. It’s our job to stand for good and to fight evil as it appears and to give America the respect it deserves. And much of that can be easily understood with Matt Schlapp’s new book, which I couldn’t recommend more.
