Who Will Be This Generation’s ‘David’ To Fight The Goliaths Of Censorship?

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of David Harris Jr.

A few days ago we shared the article DJT JR: IF WE DON’T FIGHT BACK AGAINST CENSORSHIP NOW, ‘WE’LL NEVER GET THE CHANCE AGAIN. Donald Trump Jr., while speaking with Tucker Carlson, made comments regarding the censorship that has become so prevalent in social media and search engines, and that conservatives must get off the dime and fight them now before we get completely muzzled by them.

It brought to mind a story that is literally thousands of years old. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, allow me to illustrate:

First, I need to fill in a couple of blanks. Let’s start with the main storyline attached to this photo.

It’s the account of the shepherd boy David killing Goliath, which is found in 1 Samuel 17 of the book I fondly call the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. In part, the story reads as follows:

Goliath stood and shouted a taunt across to the Israelites. “Why are you all coming out to fight?” he called. “I am the Philistine champion, but you are only the servants of Saul. Choose one man to come down here and fight me! If he kills me, then we will be your slaves. But if I kill him, you will be our slaves! 10 I defy the armies of Israel today! Send me a man who will fight me!” 11 When Saul and the Israelites heard this, they were terrified and deeply shaken.

The end of this chapter reads:

40 He picked up five smooth stones from a stream and put them into his shepherd’s bag. Then, armed only with his shepherd’s staff and sling, he started across the valley to fight the Philistine.

41 Goliath walked out toward David with his shield bearer ahead of him,42 sneering in contempt at this ruddy-faced boy. 43 “Am I a dog,” he roared at David, “that you come at me with a stick?” And he cursed David by the names of his gods. 44 “Come over here, and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and wild animals!” Goliath yelled.

45 David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel! 47 And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”

48 As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.49 Reaching into his shepherd’s bag and taking out a stone, he hurled it with his sling and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank in, and Goliath stumbled and fell face down on the ground.

50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with only a sling and a stone, for he had no sword. 51 Then David ran over and pulled Goliath’s sword from its sheath. David used it to kill him and cut off his head.

There is an important detail inside this story that sparks a question. Why did David pick up FIVE smooth stones? 1 Chronicles 20 gives us some insight. In a nutshell, Goliath had brothers, and David was prepared to take down as many of them as necessary to ensure the Israelite victory.

The first point of relating this story is this: We have Donald J. Trump on point in the White House leading the charge to Make America Great Again. Many have likened him to the Old Testament account of Cyrus that we read about in the book of Ezra, and in particular, the verse in Isaiah chapter 45. Is it coincidental that Trump happens to be the 45th president? Nope, I think it’s just another display of God’s sense of humor!

The second point to this story is actually to raise a question. Who will be the David to take down the Philistine pagan giants of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and other related services such as PayPal? All of those have openly defied the First Amendment of the Constitution, and are getting more brazen in limiting conservatives’ free speech and reach – and in denying us service based on political ideology alone. I predict it will be a “little guy” in the figurative sense that relatively few have heard of the man (or perhaps woman), and he/she will do the same as David of this story did over Goliath – all the glory will go to The Lord God Almighty.
