What’s Left Of Conservatism

No rational person would support Donald Trump in 2020. That circus freak is still going to get 50 million people or more to vote for him, though.

Ever wonder why? I have a guess. Besides them all being members of a death cult of personality.

Dead babies and Stalin.

There’s really nothing left of the conservative movement except for its opposition to abortion and its hatred of socialism and it’s more severe brother, communism. Everything else is basically out the window.

For example, used to be a time when fiscal conservatism meant something. Now it’s only part of a catch phrase for glib libertarians who tell you should you be unfortunate enough to have a dialog with one that they are “fiscally conservative, socially liberal”. Republicans give no fucks anymore about manic spending sprees; the only difference is to whom they are shoveling cash to (hint: not to you).

So with things like fiscal discipline a thing of the past, the only thing conservatives are very concerned about any more is abortions that they are not having and the socialism that no one is pushing. Donald Trump and the pack he runs with know you are suckers for those hot buttons.

He has so much contempt for you that he asserts that abortions are happening after birth, which is something sane folks like to call murder. And no one is using abortion as birth control in the main. It costs way more than a pack of jimmy hats. The pro-choice position is that abortion is safe, legal, and rare.

Then there’s the fear of socialism, which only usually occurs when a major moneymaker needs taxpayer money to make more. Joe and Jeanette Average aren’t as lucky. Take a look around and find me the corporations whose output has been seized by the state. And we’re definitely not communists. This country has never been more full of god-botherers so please miss us with the charge that America becoming more godless. I mean, it kinda is, but still it’s not the way you all think it is out there just because you can’t pray with your students. And there’s definitely no functioning proletarian movement anymore-I think that we’re about down to 10% of the workforce that is still unionized.

So not only do you suffer from a paucity of salient issues to vote on, your two big issues are ghosts. But that won’t stop some of you from being so panicked about dead babies and Stalin that you will throw your vote to some demented, unqualified, twittering, do-nothing orange rage goblin rather than take the chance that those two things are happening in your world. And you’re taking the rest of us with you when you base your voting on your fear of them. I won’t ask you to stop, because if you had any sense, you wouldn’t have let it all come to this.

Oh, Jim

It’d be funny if it weren’t so damn sad:

Pastor Jim Bakker and the guests on his show asserted this week that Satanic worship services were taking place in some Planned Parenthood clinics, which were being used a legal cover for the ritual sacrifice of children.

Wiles said that a former Satanist told him that he “performed 164 Satanic rituals inside of abortion clinics.”

“Absolutely!” Lori Bakker chimed in. “I can’t prove it because I wasn’t there… I will tell you, especially on Halloween, that many many many many Satanic rituals — abortion rituals — are performed. It’s the truth.”

“I’ve had women sit as close as Jim is to me, as you are to me, crying, screaming from their innermost being because they were in those Satanic rituals where their babies were aborted,” she insisted.

Wiles claimed that his former Satanist friend said that “sacrificing a human life is the greatest thing that they can do for Lucifer.”

 “Because murder is illegal, they have to find a way to have a sacrifice that are human,” Wiles continued. “And so because America has abortion, therefore, their doing these human sacrifices in an abortion clinic because it gives them a legal covering.”

Did the gnomes in a DMT fever dream tell them this? Because as Lori says, she and the rest of these dumbshits don’t have proof, but they know it is happening. They should release the name of this former Satanist, so we can check his claims. But all this is asking too much. Evidence doesn’t matter to the faithful; and when it does, the evidence must be concealed as a personal experience so that no one can either test it or affirm it independently.

 But my favorite is this:

The pastor noted that creationism had to be true because “there are no accidental babies.”

“You are sitting here talking about this and I think you have — your eyes are there,” Jim Bakker said, pointing at Wiles. “They’re not below your mouth. Your mouth didn’t somehow land up [on your forehead]. If this was all accidental, you know, you’d have an ear there.”

OK. So because someone doesn’t have an outrageous deformity, God exists. Nevermind all those babies born with congenital diseases, huh? Jim Bakker needs to take a biology class and discover that DNA is very good at what it does; even all the congenital defects that babies suffer from are relatively rare(one can argue that our problems are all congenital, but that’s not what I’m getting at here). Errors are quickly corrected and discarded in most cell divisions. A persistent, complex trait like a mouth in its proper place where so many pairs are involved is not an easy thing to disrupt. You can see God if you like in this. But really, the story is stubborn chemicals. We are made of tough, predictable stuff. It takes some time to change things like this (a lot of time, Christians).

I don’t feel like trying to find the picture of the baby that proves both me and Bakker wrong. That would depress me, and I am only interested in having fun at Jim Bakker’s expense. Those of you with disturbed minds will find this on your own.

Pull The Other One

Since the abortion issue is center stage, ad nauseam, it was only a matter of time before we saw some foot soldiers do the dirty work of the propagandists who want to end safe procedures:

Police were called to the South Wind Women’s Center on E. Kellogg at around 3:30 Monday afternoon.

Staff at the clinic reported a man came into the clinic with a backpack which contained knives. 911 dispatchers say the man was also carrying a small box wrapped in tape. The clinic was evacuated temporarily.

Now what’s really befuddling about this story is that the police believed the man had no ill intent against the clinic:

According to police, Trevizo was applying for a position at the clinic. Officers went through a backpack the man brought with him and found several knives and a pill bottle with a fuse coming out of the top.

He told police he had just moved out and had all of his personal belongings with him.

Of course! Who of us hasn’t saved the cutlery and the bombs when we move?
