America: “If I Were the Devil”

February 8, 2019

America: “If I Were the Devil.”

One of my favorite American commentators was the amazing Mr. Paul Harvey. He was a soft but resounding voice in his day and during my relative period of youth. 

To me me his wisdom was astonishing, as it surly is in the following video. 

I hope you will agree. 

In any event, I delight in bringing Paul Harvey’s precient words to you in today’s posting.

I have also included a transcript of his presentation on the “prince of darkness” and how he would “take over the United States”. I hope you will copy and print this transcript and show it to many others in the future.

I believe his message will stimulate an unsettling, creepy sense of fear in most right-thinking Americans. 

It is now only a clear perception of reality; along with a rational, strong and abiding sense of fear that will motivate America to save itself at all ballot boxes in future city, state and national elections.

Please see this video. Then forward it to everyone you know.

“If I were the devil’: the 1965 warning from Paul Harvey that’s chilling……..

If I were the prince of darkness, I would want to engulf the whole world in darkness.

I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — thee.

So, I would set about however necessary to take over the United States.

I’d subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.”

To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince the children that man created God instead of the other way around. I’d confide that what’s bad is good and what’s good is square.

And the old, I would teach to pray after me, “Our Father, which are in Washington …”

Then, I’d get organized, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa.

I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.

And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run wild. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and them from the houses of Congress.

In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

If I were the devil I’d make the symbol of Easter and egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

I would caution against extremes, in hard work, and patriotism, in moral conduct.

I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be.

And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.”
