On September 1, 2020, Utah Senator Mitt Romney accused President Donald of making an attempt to “further inflame racial tensions” through his response to leftist riots across the nation.
“The comments and tweets over the past few days, including a retweet of a 2019 video clearly intended to further inflame racial tensions, are simply jaw-dropping,” Romney said to The New York Times. The video that Romney referenced and which Trump retweeted, depicts an African American man pushing a white woman into a New York subway train in 2019. In the tweet, Trump claimed that the assault was perpetrated by “Black Lives Matter/Antifa.”
According to The Hill, Romney was the only Republican senator to talk to the Times about the president’s remarks and tweets. Other comments that have made the media and milquetoast Republicans squirm included Trump’s assertion that Democrat nominee Joe Biden is controlled by “people that you’ve never heard of, people that are in the dark shadows.”
During the Trump era, Romney has established himself as one of Trump’s fiercest critics in the Senate. Trump has not let Romney browbeat him into politically correct submission and routinely attacked the Utah Senator for his petty attacks.
Romney sharply criticized Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s prison sentence. Stone is a good friend and associate of Trump.
“Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president,” Romney said back in July on Twitter. Further, Romney has criticized Trump’s opposition to mail-in voting by citing how Utah and other Western states have conducted elections by mail.
“I don’t know of any evidence that voting by mail would increase voter fraud,” Romney declared in August. “My biggest concern, frankly, with regards to voting fraud has been that there would be some kind of hacking of our voting electronic systems, and that voting machines or tabulating equipment would be hacked.”
Trump should continue humiliating the Utah Senator and make it clear that his brand of conservatism is no longer welcome in the realigned GOP.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
