A pastor in Palo Alto, California has resigned after posting a series of tweets that get right to the heart of liberal hypocrisy. Gregory Stevens slammed the tech industry’s greed and empty social justice promises calling it an “elitist sh*t den of hate.”
According to The Guardian, Gregory Stevens confirmed on Monday that he had stepped down from the First Baptist Church of Palo Alto, an LGBT-inclusive congregation, after his personal tweets calling out the obvious and glaring hypocrisy of the wealthy liberals in the Silicone Valley area of California surfaced at a recent council hearing.
In emails to the Guardian, the 28-year-old minister detailed his “exasperation” with Palo Alto, a city in the heart of the technology industry, plagued by severe income inequality and poverty driven by the policies of leftists as is common in California. “I believe Palo Alto is a ghetto of wealth, power, and elitist liberalism by proxy, meaning that many community members claim to want to fight for social justice issues, but that desire doesn’t translate into action,” Stevens wrote, lamenting that it was impossible for low-income people to live in the city. “The insane wealth inequality and the ignorance toward actual social justice is absolutely terrifying.”
That’s because rich liberals are shielded from the horrifying outcomes of the policies they institute, damaging all those with less to go around. It’s that way in every instance and as Californis slides closer to communism, that wealth gap will grow. He added later: “The tech industry is motivated by endless profit, elite status, rampant greed, and the myth that their technologies are somehow always improving the world.” He later added: “The tech industry is motivated by endless profit, elite status, rampant greed, and the myth that their technologies are somehow always improving the world.”
Local headlines about Stevens, who has faced an intense backlash from residents and city leaders, labeled his tweets “nasty”, “vile”, “unsavory” and “unholy”, highlighting posts in which he called Palo Alto “disgusting” and said: “I hate ‘social justice’ in Palo Alto. What a fucking joke.” Notice how none of the headlines called his tweets untruthful? The truth hurts a hypocrite liberal more than anything.
Local critics had brought up Stevens’ tweets while opposing an effort by the church to get permits to allow new community activities in the space. The fact that a permit is even needed in the first place is heavy evidence of master/slave relationship people in California have with their government. However, Stevens’ old tweets were geared to “small group of progressive ministers and leftist political activists”, he said, adding that he had vented his frustrations in “an unprofessional and often hurtful way” and was resigning to “minimize the negativity” facing the church. But, he later added, “I think rage and anger toward oppression and injustice is a biblical calling on our lives.”
Stevens, who is a self-described queer and has lived in Palo Alto for nearly three years, noted that his church was located in one of the richest neighborhoods in the city, with houses worth anywhere from $5m to $15m. “Jesus was a homeless Jew who said it was harder for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven than for a camel to get through the eye of a needle,” he wrote, adding: “It is very difficult to do Christian ministry, a ministry that calls us to fight with and for the poor and marginalized among us, in the midst of an enclave of wealth and power.”
Stevens’ tweets hit the nerves of the wealthy liberal elitists in the area too. The continuing tension is worsening in Silicon Valley, where some of the world’s wealthiest companies and entrepreneurs have pledged to better the world through innovations, yet working-class families and poor residents struggle to afford the most basic necessities. The region has one of the worst homelessness crises in the country and a huge shortage of affordable housing, forcing tens of thousands of low-income workers to commute more than 50 miles to work. And that’s a direct result of the government policies of the leftists in the area recognized and implemented using force and violence.
Stevens argued that the church’s rich neighbors could afford to voluntarily “feed and house” all the homeless people in Palo Alto and surrounding cities, but instead they have focused on passing laws that further criminalize those struggling to get by and encouraging police to harass those sleeping outside or in cars. The city had also made it hard for the church to provide meals for the homeless by requiring costly permits, he said.
Stevens is definitely waking up to the problems of the progressive mindset after seeing it firsthand. It’s unfortunate that others have mentally shielded themselves to all of this and cannot see the damage their liberal politicians are doing to those living in poverty.
