“The liberals are coming! The liberals are coming! Woke alert!"
"When our fear of liberalism exceeds our fear of the Lord, our god is power."
“Lemme tell you how this works. All you have to do to thwart change in conservative Christian ranks is to frame it as a progressive takeover."
I'm not certain what you mean by 'thwart change in conservative Christian ranks is to frame it as a progressive takeover,' and, I'm not sure you are aware of the reason for this statement, either. If we frame an action as 'progressive takeover; you can bank on it that we are aware of progressive tactics and false doctrine creeping in with an attempt to lead the innocent astray. Many are becoming well informed as to the intent of a progressive church and are arising in strength with a determined resistant to such error and blasphemy.
Another popular meme that people unthinkingly share is:
Now, setting aside the fact that construction on the Keystone XL pipeline hasn't even been completed (which means opening it is a bit more complicated than simply pushing a button or turning a valve control wheel -- it's not like we can have oil via the pipeline within a week or so), and the intricacies of the hopelessly broken U.S. immigration system, the fatal flaw in this statement is "Make this go virtual!!"
- The person who originated this honestly didn't know the difference between virtual and viral, posted it with the wrong word, and then hundreds of people simply shared it without correcting the spelling.
- Someone intentionally created this with the wrong word, knowing that people's emotions would get stirred up by the first two statements, making them willing to quickly share/repost the whole thing without paying attention to the major mistake. It very well could have been an experiment to see just how many people would blindly share the meme based on emotional resonance, without engaging the logical part of their brains. This tends to prove out Jonathan Haidt's analogy of the rider (rational thought) and the elephant (emotional response): 90% of what we say and do is based on emotions or gut feelings, and our logical faculties are really only in control of about 10% of our words and actions.
