GOP Parallel Universes: Hyperbolic and Counter-Intuitive Myths, Claims and Canards, June 24-July 1, 2013

The legacy of the President who dreams of nuclear disarmament is likely to be a world with far more weapons and more nuclear powers.

“The Obama Age of Proliferation, WSJ.  

So crusading for nuclear disarmament has the same net effect as crusading for a nuclear buildup?

“Spreading democracy” is code language for destabilization of the Middle East and empowerment of Muslim extremists. We should seek stabilization in the Middle East, whether democratic or dictatorial, but more often than not it comes in the form of dictatorship. There is no virtue in extremist governments because they are elected democratically, which if not sincere will be the product of voter intimidation creating the same result.

The rules are a little different when it comes to a scandal directed against a celebrity like Paula Deen, though, because the State Media has a vested interest in ramping up racial tension before the Trayvon Martin trial begins next week.  I hope you are savvy enough to realize that the institutional Left is hoping that Orlando explodes in a powder keg of racial hatred, riots, and destruction.  There’s a whole generation of people working in the State Media right now who were too young to be on the air or submitting copy when the LA Riots happened after the Rodney King verdict in the early 1990s and during the OJ Simpson or Michael Jackson trials after that.  THOSE were the stories that reporters now in their late-20s and 30s all studied in journalism school…and they’ve always wished they could be part of a giant circus like that.  They salivated when this Trayvon Martin shooting happened because it was a chance to stoke the same sort of racial tension that these people all studied in school and dreamed of one day participating in.  I think that attacking Paula Deen and calling her a “Ray Ciss” on the Friday before the trial of George Zimmerman (the man who killed Trayvon Martin…you know, the boy who Barack Obama said looked like he could be his son) is the State Media’s way of priming the pump for all of the racial fury and indignation they’ve got planned during the trial.

the current immigration  bill “would allow stateless people in the U.S. to seek conditional lawful status if their nations have been made uninhabitable by climate change….presumably how this would work is that somebody would walk up to the U.S. border, say ‘it’s getting too hot over there’ (or cold, or wet, or dry, or windy) and be granted legal entry.”

President Obama has managed to win election by assembling two major constituencies: 1) a lumpen proletariat that has no idea how the economy works, is dependent on the government, and votes for him because he promises more handouts; and 2) an upper-crust constituency that thinks “we already have enough,” isn’t interested in any further economic development, and believes, if anything, that we already have too much of material possessions and it’s time to start cutting back on things. This has been the theme of environmentalism for 40 years. The rationale changes — we’re undergoing a “population bomb,” we’re drowning in pollution, we’re running out of oil and other resources — but the message is always the same. We’ve got enough. Time to call off all this progress. Let’s go back to spinning our own yarn, growing our own vegetables, and putting up windmills.

Lane goes on…to denounce American Christianity for failing to produce martyrs and for substituting a “heretical Americanism for Christian orthodoxy.” He insists that to put things right “Christians must risk martyrdom” to force people to either “acknowledge Jesus [as] an imperator and the church as God’s imperium or to begin drinking holy blood.”

Lane expresses frustration with what he regards as the superficial politics of press releases of “inside the Beltway” Christian Rightists. He calls for “champions of Christ to save the nation from the pagan onslaught imposing homosexual marriage, homosexual scouts, 60 million babies done to death by abortion and red ink as far as the eye can see.” The champions for Christ of his vision will “wage war for the Soul of America and trust the living God to deliver the pagan gods into our hands and restore America to her Judeo-Christian heritage and re-establish a Christian culture.”

“America’s survival is at stake,” he declares, “and this is not tall talk or exaggeration.”.

As I say,  just another day in the life of the republic: a corrupt bureaucracy dispensing federal gravy to favored clients; a pseudo-legislature passing bills unread by the people’s representatives and uncomprehended by the men who claim to have written them; and a co-regency of jurists torturing an 18th-century document in order to justify what other countries are at least honest enough to recognize as an unprecedented novelty. Whether or not, per Scalia, we should “condemn” the United States Constitution, it might be time to put the poor wee thing out of its misery.
