18h UTC; FRIDAY, 19 APRIL 2013: Perhaps the best way to begin this post would be with this passage from Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four (1948), whose relevance will be explained presently:
The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. His heart sank as he thought of the enormous power arrayed against him, the ease with which any Party intellectual would overthrow him in debate, the subtle arguments which he would not be able to understand, much less answer. And yet he was in the right! They were wrong and he was right. The obvious, the silly, and the true had got to be defended. Truisms are true, hold on to that! The solid world exists, its laws do not change. Stones are hard, water is wet, objects unsupported fall towards the earth's centre. With the feeling that he was speaking to O'Brien, and also that he was setting forth an important axiom, he wrote:

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
The significance and relevance thereof, insightfulness even, being somehow interconnected to the reaction of certain right-wing prolefeeders to the Recent Unfortunate Events at the Boston Marathon, whose culmination is even now playing out with a major manhunt underway in suburban Boston for the surviving Tsamaev brother, Dzhokhor (19), after he and his since-killed older brother, Tamerlane (26), were identified in surveillance video released by the FBI last evening seeking the public's help in identification. (The State Department put names to the images thanks to cross-checking the images with their immigrant database.)

The Hub City of the Universe is now in a siege mindset essentially, with schools and universities closed, transit and taxicab service ordered suspended in the interim and police ordering residents to "shelter in place" (as in "stay in your houses") as part and parcel of the manhunt. And given the Chechen background of the Tsamaev brothers (who have since taken American citizenship), the BBC makes note of these comments by Chechen President Razman Kadyrov via his Instagram account:
We have previously expressed our condolences to the people of the city and the people of America... Any attempt to make the connection between Chechnya and the Tsarnaevs, if they are guilty, is in vain. They grew up in the US, their attitudes and beliefs were formed there. It is necessary to seek the roots of evil in America. We wish recovery to all the victims and share the feelings of sorrow.
Come to think of it, reader, the Elmer Gantryite sort of prolefeeder as specialises in viewing things in the Biblical "End Times/Latter Rain" context must have had an Interesting Week for over-the-top, fanatically Biblically-driven (so they think) prolefeed making light of such Unfortunate Events as the terror bombings in Boston and the fertiliser-plant explosion and fire in West, TX, somehow interpreting such as Spontaneous Warnings from Yahweh God indicating that He is Preparing to, and Without Prior Warning or Notice, Remove His Protective Hand from Our Dear Lovely Nation Within Measurable Distance, to be followed by His Revoking Our Divinely-Ordained National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations by His Grace and Favour.

Which, as is well-known, attracts especially the Moronic Underworld, the Lowest of the Low when it comes to racial and socioeconomic standing--the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKan" valued dearly by conservative prolefeeders and the equally-disreputable sort of advertisers supporting them, valuing poverty, fecundity and ignorance as virtuous and in service to God and Country. But all in all, these specimens of "poor whiteism" fail to recognise that such Bible-centrist commentators they fall for to explain current events may really be (howbeit closeted) alcoholics, drug addicts, social pariahs, sex maniacs, gamblers, wife-beaters and other Dregs of Society. Especially if they're the sort as believes in an angry, vengeance-driven Yahweh, more than likely commonplace with this ilk.

Rumour-mongering as a prolefeed tactic may be meeting its match (or close to it) in Nigeria's Bayelsa state: Government officials there are posting giant billboards urging people to "say NO to rumour-mongers," adding
"Do everything within your power NOT to pass on any information that is not confirmed or authorised by a credible and reliable source." (For those with concerns about the authenticity of any rumours they come across, three special telephone hotlines have been set up, with thousands of calls being taken since the anti-rumour campaign began in March.)

And the Elmer Gantryite ranks could too easily be taking things too literally to the point of paranoid fanaticism rearing its ugly head, especially with some rather prominent prolefeeders in this regard pushing tropes about the clear and present imminence of "wholesale persecution of Bible-Believing Christians in Our Dear Lovely Nation" rivalled in depravity by the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacree of August 23, 1572, when several hundred French Protestants (Huguenots) were loaded onto false-bottomed barges upon the River Seine and dumped into same, drowning them in the process. Which can easily be taken to over-the-top excesses as invoke the memory of the Boer "martyrs" of the British extermination camps during the Boer War (1899-1902), mostly from malnutrition, disease and sickness, replete with ghost story-type prolefeed about the "martyr cries" of those victims screaming for venegance on behalf of all Christian True Believers in Danger of Persecution, Real or Imminent, from the precincts of their symbolic burial-ground otherwise known as the Nasionale Vrouemonument outside Bloemfontein, South Africa, consecrated as Afrikaner Sacred Ground on the same par as the Blood River battlefield and the Voortrekkermonument in its Luscious Glory overlooking Pretoria (the authenticity thereof being rather doubtful, thus suggesting that such is atrocity prolefeed serving the cause of calling upon the "REAL AmeriKKKan" to show "solidarity" with their brethren in race- and faith-consciousness in Clear and Present Danger of Persecution otherwise known as the Afrikaner Volk of South Africa--especially when it comes to supporting campaigns seeking a Volkstaat, a "national home" for the Afrikaner within South African sovereign territory, and especially such reinforced by "common bonds" with the so-called "Confederate Southern AmeriKKKan" community vis-a-vis race and national identity, ideology--and warped Delusions of Grandeur about "national heritage under attack," hoping for the Confederate Saltaire and die Transvaaler Vierkleur flying side by side in ethno-racial and ethno-Christian solidarity, with "The Bonny Blue Flag" and "Vaarwuel aan die Vierkleur" being sung with one voice....)
