There is a tale called “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” written by Hans Christian Anderson. In the story the Emperor is a vain man and always wants the newest fashions. A couple of tailors convince the Emperor that the clothes they are making him are of such fine quality that only the most elevated people can see them as the fine clothes are invisible to both the stupid and the incompetent. When the emperor goes to see his new clothes, he sees nothing at all — for the tailors are swindlers and there aren’t any clothes.
Yet his pride and ego prevent him from admitting that he is not the most elevated person, so the Emperor pretends he is delighted with his new clothes, strutting himself round about in the palace, the White House, buck naked. Fearful of reprisals, the Republicans bow down and says what a fine set of clothes the Emperor is wearing because they are afraid to contradict him. Why? Because the vast majority of the Republicans in Congress fear that the Emperor would defame them in their own towns, either by a rally or by a tweet.
Then the Emperor travelled to Kentucky and led a parade known as a rally to show off his new clothes to the people, particularly his health care bill . The Republicans pretend to admire the clothes except one little boy who yells out “But the Emperor has no clothes.” Actually, by this time, there were 28 Republicans who declared, “not only is the Emperor not wearing any clothes, but this bill is too naked for us to approve as is.”
The moral and the symbolic connection of our current political climate to this fairy tale is that because of pretentiousness, political correctness, a lust for power and a fear of the Emperor’s tweets, the Republicans have been pretending to support and agree with the Emperor’s outrageously incompetent behavior, even holding an inquiry to determine whether the former President wiretapped the Emperor.
Yet a better person to replace the symbolism of the little boy in this fairy tale is Director Comey. Comey shocked the world by revealing that The Emperor has been under investigation by the FBI since July 2016. Consequently, the Republicans can no longer pretend to be blind. They must face the fact that their Emperor has no clothes. His credibility is gone. Even his base has got to face up to the fact that their racist nationalism, their “white is right attitude”, can not cover up the fact that The Emperor is naked, not just in the USA but around the world.
Yet even more blind than Republicans, are those among the populous who believe they are Christians. They profess that God has chosen the Emperor. It seems that God has already released a spirit of strong delusion upon them that only God Himself can remove.
I seriously doubt that He will.
