Tim Tebow, the Super Bowl, Newt Gingrich, and the Future of Our Country
By Kris Zane

When Tim Tebow, whose ubiquitous expression of his love for God on bended knee threw 316 yards and averaged 31.6 yards per completion in the Broncos-Steelers game, many saw it as a sign and connection to John 3:16, the most famous verse in the Bible.
But was the Super Bowl between the Patriots and Giants also a sign, a sort of David versus Goliath, a good versus evil: the Patriots from the greater Boston area, the seat of love for country, versus New York, the seat of liberalism, anti-American sentiment, and Occupy protesters defecating on police cars.
Even the Super Bowl TV ads seemed to be in a battle, between pro-American themed commercials versus the usual hedonistic fare. One commercial had the theme from the movie Rocky, “Getting Strong Now” playing in the background, beckoning back to a time in America when we were proud of our country; when Presidents didn’t go around the world apologizing for America; a time when Supreme Court justices didn’t jaunt around the globe denigrating our Constitution, as Ruth Ginsberg did recently in Egypt. Heroes and Super hero-themed movies were also advertised, like GI Joe: Retaliation, the ultimate in good versus evil, and Avengers, with a slew of superheroes, when America could use a few super heroes to look up to. There was also an ad for Act of Valor, a movie that actually portrays our military and their families in a good light instead of the endless America-bashing Hollywood serves up endlessly.
Lady Gaga, instead of Madonna, could have been chosen for the halftime show: hedonism versus a love for God and country. But Madonna was chosen, again from a different era, when love of country and love of God were not dirty words. Madonna’s new upbeat song, “Give Me All Your Luvin’”, performed during halftime, also beckoned back to a better time with the sound of girl bands in the 1980s like the Go Go’s, with visuals of football and cheerleaders, in which you couldn’t get much more American- themed. She closed her fantastic half-time show with “Like a Prayer,” flanked by a large choir, perhaps a sign to America that we should move away from the Secular Machine of the Obama administration, whose order to the Catholic Church under the ObamaCare HHS mandate to begin providing health insurance coverage in Catholic hospitals, universities, and charitable organizations that include contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients has been repudiated nationwide by the Catholic church, and has even led to the Obama Administration censoring Catholic chaplains in the military. The Catholic Church is now fighting back.
Newt Gingrich, a Catholic, was one of the first to publicly repudiate the HHS mandate and also fits into our analogy. Mitt Romney, the Goliath, backed by an endless supply of money from Wall Street, droned on and on to the American public by the mainstream media as the “inevitable” Republican candidate and being stuffed down the throats of conservative America by the Republican machine and most of the Right-wing media as the only “viable” candidate, dwarfs our David, Newt Gingrich, but Romney the Goliath is no conservative.
Newt Gingrich, with little money, is demonized ad nauseam by the mainstream media, the Left, the Romney machine, the Republican Party, and now by most of the Right-wing media. ABC tried to destroy Gingrich by airing an interview with Newt’s ex-wife two days before the South Carolina primary—allegations that are not news, being told ad nauseam for years. John King, as if it were merely by chance, made the allegations by the ex-wife the very first question in the CNN debate in order to bring Gingrich down— ironically, it had the opposite effect. After Romney was trounced in South Carolina by Gingrich, the Romney machine spent fifteen million dollars on attack ads in Florida alone. On January 25 and 26, the Right-wing media, led by National Review Online and followed byDrudge Report’s screaming headlines and most of the remainder of the Right-wing media, mounted an orchestrated attack within hours of each other, questioning Gingrich’s support of and relationship with Ronald Reagan, of which those who were close to Reagan repudiated, including Ronald Reagan’s son. A large part of the Tea Party, however, and a huge grassroots movement on thousands of websites and with millions of tweets and emails, stayed strong in their candidate.
Gingrich is not back backed by Wall Street. The Left has made him Enemy #1. Gingrich has been demonized by both the mainstream and most of the Right-wing media. Both the Romney machine and the Republican machine have perpetrated lies about him ad nauseam. He is faced with what looks like an insurmountable task. A David versus a Goliath. A Patriot versus a Giant.
With the New England Patriots’ loss to the New York Giants, like Tebow’s 316 rushing yards being seen as a sign of God’s hand in man’s events, will Newt Gingrich the Patriot lose the election to Romney the Giant? Has God turned his back on David and taken the side of Goliath for the sins of this country? Will He deliver us into the hands of another four years of Obama—which is what a Romney Republican ticket will mean. Will America turn their backs on Gingrich, patriots, movies that instill and uplift American values; place Madonna’s musical resurrection as an aberration, and embrace Romney, hedonistic movies, Lady Gaga, and eventually, in the end, Obama’s secular socialist machine? Only God knows...
