Ever been accused of being homophobic or heard the word? What about Islamaphobia? Sure you have. Those are two popular terms thrown around quite freely. Based upon my research into communism, socialism, and the homosexual agenda I have discover that this is a common propaganda tactic. I marveled that in all of the works I studied over the last couple of years that "the truth" was not important. What was/is important is control that empowers a group to institute their vision for society. Lying is encouraged even required.
In one 400 page book I studied (Disinformation; Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism) written by the highest ranking KGB officer to ever defect the first hundred pages was devoted to their number one enemy. It was the Church. Apparently the truth about God and Jesus was a real threat to godless communism. The tactics used supported a long term strategy to undermine truth, destroy the character of key leaders required creating lies which would be repeated in a variety of media venues until people heard it so much they began to think it was the truth. I don't care if you study Saul Alinski or the homosexual agenda (see After the Ball - 1989) you will find similar tactics used. I want to share with you the secret behind one of the key tactics.
There are two elements to this tactic.
Fear is normal and good in certain cases (ie. fear or respect for the power of the sea or power of God). Irrational fear is what 'phobia's" typically deal with.
Remember, I teach leaders on principles of war. The Principle of Offense teaches us that:
Offense is the only way you get victory. Defense only leads to stalemate or defeat.
The use of these two made up words (homophobia and Islamaphobia) are intended to put people on the defense by attacking truth and using fear. They want to modify behavior and stop people from speaking the truth and opposing a lie. Do you know who or what is being attacked? It is not really the person within their ear shot. People are actually a secondary target. The real target is the truth.
The Truth is a Person and the Truth is the Word
Wisdom in Spiritual Warfare or How to Take the Initiative Away from from our Enemy
Attacking another person and accusing them of unrealistic fear is designed to manipulate and make them "feel guilty." The political correctness camp uses this tactic frequently as well.
Recognize that what is being attacked is not the person but rather "The Truth." Truth comes from the Greek word alethiea. The person who carries truth is actually the secondary target. The only way to attack the truth is with a lie. Why would anyone attack the truth; because they FEAR the TRUTH.
These people suffer from Aletheia-phobia. Aletheiaphobia means "fear of the truth."
I don't care if the issue is socialism, communism, the homosexual agenda, an Islamic fascist type of system (Sharia Law), political correctness etc. all of these systems of thought attack the truth because they want to propagate a lie so as to implement a world view based upon a network of lies.
If anyone accuses you of being homophobic or Islamaphobic you will know who your enemy really is and what they are attempting to do. What you want to do is rob them of the initiative and put them on the defense. You could respond with;
"Oh, you must be an aletheiaphob!" They will ask you, "what's that?" It is a person who is afraid of the truth. Are you afraid of the truth? The truth is.....
I could not help but think of the comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his his routine regarding "you might be a redneck if..."
You Might Be an Aletheiaphob if:
The goal is to position yourself to present the truth. Why?
