Why Do They Hate Trump? The Answer from a Fatima Perspective.

by Christopher A. Ferrara
January 18, 2017

From this Fatima perspective, which is to say the Catholic perspective, it is no mystery why all the powers that be, led by the jabbering jackals of the mass media, have combined in a desperate and quite unprecedented attempt to find a way — any way — to oust a duly elected President from office in what would amount to the first coup d’état in the history of the American republic. (I will not discuss here the veritable coup d’état by which the Continental Congress morphed into a centralized federal government behind closed doors in Philadelphia.)

Donald Trump’s personality, his penchant for crass rhetoric, his alleged sexual misconduct many years ago — his whatever — have nothing to do with the hatred he elicits from what I call the World Oligarchic Complex (WOC), which had assumed as a given the election of Hillary Clinton and the final trump of radical evil in politics.

The reason the WOC labors to destroy Trump is very simple: his policies. The WOC recognizes that Trump, with all his faults, represents significant opposition to a diabolic worldwide regime marked by the unholy trinity of contraception, abortion and sodomy. 

For example, as Life Site News summarizes, since his election Trump has:

Then there is his ban on the recruitment of “transgender” persons in the military and his reversal of the insane Obama-era “instruction” (completely without the force of law) that schools allow “transgender children” to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex.

Also, rather sensationally, Trump has appointed a family man with three children to replace as US Ambassador to Spain, a “pro-LGBT openly gay man ‘married’ to a man”, signaling that he has abandoned “Obama’s plans to ‘impose the LGBT agenda in the world through diplomatic pressures.’” 

And now the White House has announced that Trump will be “the first sitting president to address the March for Life from the White House live via satellite” for the stated reason that “The President is committed to protecting the life of the unborn and he is excited to be part of this historic event.” As Life Site notes, Trump has even gone so far as to call out the “fake news media” for “giving extensive coverage to a pro-abortion march but not to the March for Life, the largest pro-life event in the world.”

Trump, whose wife has revealed herself to be a Catholic to the horror of the Washington Post, has even dared to give a Christmas Message in which he referred to “the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” and noted that “The Christmas story begins 2000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all, the gift of God’s love for all of humanity.” (I make no comment here on Melania Trump’s standing with the Church or the state of Trump’s soul. Suffice it to note that God has not refrained from using morally compromised rulers as instruments for good, ultimately bringing about their repentance and conversion. King David, a murderer and an adulterer, is the foremost Scriptural example.)

A simple thought experiment confirms the point I am making:  Imagine that Trump had done none of these things but rather had revealed himself to be a promoter or at least a non-opponent of contraception, abortion and sodomy in the manner of a typical liberal Republican. Would the WOC now be marshaling all its forces to destroy him?  The question answers itself.

In short, Trump — in spite of his own background — represents a most unexpected impediment to the final triumph of radical evil in America and throughout the Western world. Clearly, Trump has to go. Thus, the WOC pursues his downfall with all the ferocity of an agitated swarm of killer bees whose hive has been disturbed by an intruder.

I am reminded of Pius XII’s warning inEvangelii Praecones: “Venerable Brethren, you are well aware that almost the whole human race is today allowing itself to be driven into two opposing camps, for Christ or against Christ. The human race is involved today in a supreme crisis, which will issue in its salvation by Christ, or in its dire destruction.”

Such indeed is the Message that the Virgin Mother of God conveyed at Fatima — a Message to which the generality of Catholic churchmen today have turned a deaf ear, with even Pope Francis and the Vatican lining up against Trump’s sensible immigration policies. Truly it is a mystery of iniquity and a harbinger of a dramatic resolution to come, when the Lord of History infallibly executes His divine Will in the manner Our Lady of Fatima has promised.
