'If I Were the Devil'

Paul Harvey first wrote a commentary with the same title in 1965.
I think it is clearly time for me to update it for 2020.
I'm a God-fearing and God-loving American patriot.
I am a Jew who took Jesus Christ as my savior almost 30 years ago.
Today, I feel the devil all around us, like never before in my
lifetime ... in any lifetime.
This coronavirus crisis has the devil's evil fingerprints all over it.
Not certain I'm right?
If I were the devil, if evil were my middle name, I'd love the deep
state, the corrupt Washington, D.C., swamp and, most of all, its PR
division, the liberal media.
I'd love big government, globalists, communists, socialists and Marxists
-- anyone who would put the American people in misery and slavery.
I'd dedicate my life to anything and anyone who'd destroy the American
dream, opportunity and mobility. Because, of course, the devil loves
I'd want to enslave the American people to big government, ruin their
exceptionalism, make them ordinary citizens of a global army of serfs.
I'd want to turn the positive, wonderful, exceptional lives of
prosperous American business owners into lives of misery, malaise and
I'd want America to be no different than Cuba, Venezuela, Haiti or
Mexico. Why should America escape my misery and pain?
I'd give my support to anyone who'd take the American dream away.
And more than anything, I'd hate President Donald J Trump.
I'd hate anyone who wants to make America great again.
I'd want to wipe that smirk right off the faces of Americans who love
their country and God. I'd want them to suffer.
To accomplish all this ...
I'd want to create a pandemic just like the coronavirus.
It would wipe away all of Trump's amazing, magical and miraculous
economic achievements of the past three years ... in just a matter of a
few shocking, depressing, tragic weeks.
It would crash the stock market; collapse the oil and energy markets;
kill over 30 million jobs; close the entire U.S. economy; shutter
millions of small businesses.
It would turn tens of millions of Americans into welfare addicts and
wards of the state; eliminate Trump's 20,000-person stadium rallies;
overwhelm the entire economic system; bring business owners to their
knees; and make big government the only option to save a drowning nation
no longer so "exceptional."
It would make Americans hide in their homes, accept government telling
them whether their businesses are "essential," deciding whether they can
earn a living or not, deciding whether they can gain access to a
potentially life-saving anti-malaria drug protocol or not.
I'd root for a massive overreaction that leaves America shocked,
depressed and weakened. And the government's reaction would be to spend
so much money it would leave America crippled by unimaginable debt for
decades to come.
I'd laugh and do a dance to celebrate all the rich and powerful business
owners left with nothing, reduced to begging big government to bail them
And obviously, I'd hate Christianity more than even America or Trump.
I'd create something so vile and frightening it would close down
churches and prevent Easter church services for the first time in the
history of America.
As a bonus, I'd want everyone in America to be not only broke, scared
and humbled but also miserable.
So, I'd eliminate all sports; close down movie theaters; shut down Las
Vegas, air travel and cruise ships; cancel vacations and weddings. There
would be no way out -- except misery, depression and loneliness.
Sex? All dating would be canceled. No one could come within six feet of
Except for Neil Ferguson, the U.K. scientist who scammed the whole world
with hysterical, exaggerated claims and then apparently violated social
distancing to have an affair with a married woman.
That Ferguson is my kind of guy -- a real devil!
Folks, do you understand now?
We've all just met the devil. The coronavirus was his greatest creation
yet. This was his "Mona Lisa." The devil is dancing in hell.
Make no mistake about it. We are under massive attack. This pandemic has
the devil's fingerprints all over it. It's invisible -- just like the
These are the moments that can break even exceptional people. But we are
America. We are relentless. We are blessed by God. And, yes, we are
We still have faith in America and capitalism. We know God is by our
side. We still have faith in our G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time),
President Donald J Trump.
If anyone can reverse this, Trump can, just as he reversed former
President Barack Obama's miserable economy in a matter of months.
Mr. Devil, you will never, never, never, ever defeat America. You win
round one. But we know God is in control of this 16-round championship
fight. You cannot beat us. You cannot break us. You can never win. We
are America, the greatest nation in world history, ever blessed by God.
In Trump we trust. In America we trust. In God we trust.
Oh, and Mr. Devil, one more thing ...
