No one in the lamestream media seems to be interested in what the Tuscon shooting suspect’s friend Zach Osler told ABC News - that Loughner was influenced by the documentary Zeitgeist, which claims that Christianity is "a myth", and promotes the 9/11 “Truther” conspiracy theory that somehow “international bankers” (is that code for Joooo-ish bankers?) were behind it all. Stacy McCain comments on the obvious significance of this revelation:
- JPBecause that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools...Vox Day quoted from that famous passage in describing the auto-beclownment of University of Minnesota biology professor Paul Z. Myers — a self-proclaimed “godless liberal” — who like a lot of other godless liberals was utterly wrong about the Tucson shooting:
– Romans 1:21-22 (KJV)“The scumbag who committed this crime has been caught; I’ll bet he’ll turn out to be a Teabagger who listens to a lot of AM talk radio.”Professor Myers went on to call Sarah Palin “a vile creature” and accused her of ” inciting the deranged a______s who follow her.” When called out for his malicious libel, Professor Myers doubled down:This is NOT the time to back down and suddenly find it embarrassing to point out that right-wing pundits make a living as professional goads to insanity...In other words, no matter what vicious lies the “godless liberal” perpetrates, his comrades must defend his infamous falsehoods because... well, the Ends Justify The Means, and the road to a secular Utopia will necessarily be paved with the bones of the Enemies of Social Justice. This brutal logic, the demand that everyone must toe the line, that any tactic — even outright falsehood — is defensible so long as it advances the radical cause, is inherent to totalitarianism, which must silence dissent By Any Means Necessary.
Do not sit there cowering, trying to make excuses for teabaggers and violent morons. This is supposed to be the part where you stand up, look at the shouters on the other side, and tell them, “This is wrong, and this is the harm you bring to our country.”
