This past week I, along with a group of fellow Christians, embarked on a new venture. In partnership with Liberty Alliance, LLC – the No. 1 ranked conservative media conglomerate, according to Inc. Magazine – launched BarbWire.com.
Literally within minutes of the wire going live, the sin-obsessed left swooped in like a swarm of hate-filled locusts (more on that below).
I will, of course, continue my regular weekly exclusive column at WND, but I’m pretty excited about this new endeavor as well.
BarbWire’s “about” page explains our mission:
BarbWire.com is a motley mix of breaking news, intelligent cultural analysis, political pontification and cutting-edge opinion – all fueled by the Word of Life.
If you’re comfortable under deception, prepare to be made uncomfortable. We’re cutting free the totalitarian left’s barbwire.
Relativists beware: Truth told here.
It never ceases to amaze me how the self-described champions of “tolerance” and “diversity” always prove to be the most intolerant and hateful among us. With BarbWire just a few hours old, we immediately began getting fan mail from the ever-”tolerant” left.
Take this hate mail from “Liberty Columbia,” warning me to prepare for execution. It was emailed via the BarbWire contact page on Monday, Feb. 10:
“You are going to be legally tried in a court of law and sentenced to hang for your crimes against humanity Matt Barber (sic) and when that is done (and it will be done) the world will be a safer and better place having rid itself from a mentally diseased, waste of life, rabid barbarian Nazi whore like you.”
Brave talk from this man, woman or some-combination-thereof. Note that he/she/he-she doesn’t even have the guts to give a real name.
Indeed, there are many on the left who, like “Columbia,” would love to see me and every other Bible-believing Christian fired, jailed or even executed. We’re not there yet, but anti-Christian hate is growing in popularity both at home and abroad.
Matt Barber is founder and editor-in chief of BarbWire.com. He is an author, columnist, cultural analyst and an attorney concentrating in constitutional law. Having retired as an undefeated heavyweight professional boxer, Matt has taken his fight from the ring to the culture war. (Follow Matt on Twitter: @jmattbarber).
