see more LOLcatz galore!!


00h UTC; SATURDAY, 21 JULY 2012: No wonder the Unfortunate Events at the Century 16 filmdrome in Aurora, CO as have prompted President Obama to order Old Glory to half-staff on government buildings and United States military bases until next Wednesday "as a mark of respect" have unleashed some of the most baselessly illogical responses from the weird and unwholesome who call themselves "patriots" and "guardians of liberty" in the face of what they imagine to be the Loss of Our Antient and Peculiar Sovereignty Among the Nations, the which Your Correspondent calls unto Your Attention in the interest of Knowing Thine Enemies (and with emphasis added in all cases).

One of the first to weigh in was "Tea Party" Congressional Louie Gohmert (GOP/TX) on the Heritage Foundation-partnered "Istook Live!" radio programme; as quoted by The Maddow Blog:
Some of us happen to believe that when our founders talked about guarding our virtue and freedom, that that was important. Whether it's John Adams saying our Constitution was made only for moral and religious people ... Ben Franklin, only a virtuous people are capable of freedom, as nations become corrupt and vicious they have more need of masters. We have been at war with the very pillars, the very foundation of this country.

You know what really gets me, as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and then some senseless crazy act of a derelict takes place.
Next in the depravity prolefeed sweepstakes is Bryan "AmeriKKKan Family Association" Fischer, who (via Right Wing Watch) blames Supreme Court decisions banning organised school prayer and display of the Ten Commandments in public schools for providing fertile ground for the Unfortunate Events:
With regard to students, SAT scores began to plummet almost immediately, starting in 1963, and have never recovered. The rate of premarital sex began to climb, as did the rate of sexually transmitted diseases. Teenage pregnancies and teen births began to skyrocket, again starting in 1963. The rate at which teens were arrested for rape, aggravated assault, and murder shot through the roof ... The consequences for “parents” and families have been equally severe. Since 1963, the rates of adultery, divorce, cohabitation and domestic abuse have risen dramatically, and the intact nuclear family is being ravaged perhaps beyond repair.

With regard to “teachers” and our educational system, SAT scores have fallen into the basement while rates of school violence are shooting through the ceiling and our armed forces are hampered by functionally illiterate recruits.

The consequences for “our Country” are equally catastrophic. Homicide rates are up; more Americans are being gunned down in cold blood this year in Chicago than in Afghanistan. The nuclear family is breaking apart at culture-destroying rates. One of out every five adults in America has a lifelong, incurable sexually transmitted disease.The sexual and physical abuse of children is out of control.

The Supreme Court compounded its godless and criminal misconduct by banning the Ten Commandments and its moral precepts from classrooms in 1980. Their reasoning was fantastically absurd when looked at in the light of last night’s massacre.

“[I]f the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments,” which, the Court said, is “not a permissible state objective under the Establishment Clause.”

So these black-robed miscreants said we cannot permit potential mass murderers like James Holmes to read or meditate on God’s prohibition “Thou shall not murder” as a part of their education, because someone like him just might be inclined to “venerate and obey” it and not go on a midnight shooting rampage leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. No, we can’t be having that, now, can we?

It’s time for us to say to the left we’ve tried it your way for the past 60 years and our country is being destroyed before our very eyes. It’s time to try it our way for next 60 years. If we don’t like what we see in 2072, we can always drink again from the poisoned well of secular fundamentalism. Something tells me we won’t want to.
Also from the so-called "AmeriKKKan Family Association," its prolefeed director, Fred Jackson, went on record to lay the blame on "liberal churches and media" in these terms (via Right Wing Watch):
In the community there were community standards that reflected biblical principles, whether people knew it or not, the standard in the community was based on Scripture. In that short period of time, roughly forty years, we have seen such a transformation in values in our communities, whether it’s rural or whether it’s big city. I have to think that all of this, whether it’s the Hollywood movies, whether it’s what we see on the internets [sic], whether it’s liberal bias in the media, whether it’s our politicians changing public policy, I think all of those somehow have fit together—and I have to say also churches who are leaving the authority of Scripture and losing their fear of God—all of those things have seem to have come together to give us these kinds of incidents.
And, later, laid further blame on Godless Free Public Education (Right Wing Watch, again):
I think the sources of this is [sic] multifaceted but you can put it all I think under the heading of rebellion to God, a rejection of the God of the Bible. I think along with an education system that has produced our lawyers, our politicians, more teachers, more professors, all of that sort of thing, is our churches, mainline churches. We’ve been dealing Teddy and I know the AFA Journal has been dealing with denominations that no longer believe in the God of the Bible, they no longer believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation, they teach that God is OK with homosexuality, this is just increasing more and more. It is mankind shaking its fist at the authority of God.
Add to this rather illogical-sounding chorus of Elmer Gantryite prolefeed is Flip "Operation Save AmeriKKKa" Benham, blaming the Democratic Party for influencing its suspected assassain (yet again, via Right Wing Watch):
James Holmes, an Occupy Wall Street guy, murdered 14 and wounded 50+ at a midnight showing of the Batman movie that portrayed OWS'ers in a bad light. Perhaps there is a motive here. Twenty four years old and filled with the culture of death! When we sow bloodshed in the womb we will reap it in the streets. It is a law. It is God's Law. It is a law as certain as the physical law of gravity. It is a "spiritual gravity" that applies to all people at all places at all times. Whether or not you believe it, it applies. King Jesus is the only answer. The whole National Guard couldn't make James do what is right. He has become his own law, showing contempt for authority and doing what is right in his own eyes. He is the product of the Culture of Death that the DNC has embraced.

There is not a police force big enough to make a young man do what is right. The only answer - there is a King whose name is Jesus. When He occupies the heart of a young man, that young man will lay down his life that others may live.

This is what has happened to our country when we remove God from the equation. We have stolen the fear of God from our children, Violence always fills the void. This is the spawn of the ideology of the Democratic Party
and now we look at each other in awkward amazement, wondering "what in the world just happened?" The answer is we have stolen God from the hearts of our children.
Which calls to mind where apartheid South Africa, as didn't allow television until 1976, was perennially insisting that apartheid was His Divine Will and Blessing Upon God's Own Country, Using the Afrikaner as His Chosen People to Maintain the White Man's Burden Upon an Africa Falling Prey to Godless Communism Exploiting the Emerging Spread of Calls for Independence Among the Ignorant and Morally-Inferior Blacks Who Were Kept in Their Proper Place through the Healthy Influence of Euro-Centrist Colonialism. (Or so the official prolefeed went via the likes of South African Panorama magazine, itself on a par with Nazi Germany's illustrated prolefeed showcase Signal, and the shortwave worldcasts of Radio South Africa International.)

No wonder the weird and unwholesome are out to milk the Aurora Theatre Massacree for prolefeed advantage most crude and depraved to the point of making their spiritual cousins of Lord Haw-Haw and Der Stuermer back in Nazi Germany look like a cheap bus-excursion to Branson as features such specimens of "music shows" overdoing it on sugar-coated conservative prolefeed structured so that the audience doesn't quite notice it right away (cf. certain subliminal message tapes).

=============

Meanwhile, police in several cities are deploying extra patrols in cinemas screening The Dark Knight Rises to preempt possible copycat incidents over the weekend ... AMC has banned its patrons from wearing costumes or masks, or carrying lookee-likee weaponry, into their filmdromes "for security reasons" ... Warner Bros., as is distributing The Dark Knight Rises, has cancelled its Paris premiere as a mark of respect for the victims (in particular the 12 martyred) ... and, as noted earlier, President Obama has ordered Old Glory to half-staff on all Federal government buildings, its overseas embassies, and military installations until sunset Wednesday the 25th.

And Your Correspondent continues to stand in solidarity with the families afflicted by these Unfortunate Events.
