[update] from the Daily Kos:  The George Tiller I knew .  Hmmm...facilitating adoptions, giving free medical care to needy patients, saving lives with decisive action...obviously, he needed to die.

Did this guy REALLY get funding from Bush's tax-dollar-funded abstinence-only money at the same time that our school district got solid, scientific, fact-based, comprehensive sex education cut, and we had to raise taxes on our house to make sure our kids got accurate information?

Bush is gone, and I'm STILL finding out new stuff that pisses me off.

Pcomeau put this video on my Facebook:

 

 

 It lead me to This Link.

Sometimes the stupid burns.  Sometimes the stupid clings and burns. Like Napalm. Von Mesis Institute: napalm for the brain.

And no, it's not an Onion article. They actually argue that a decentralized society ruled by a patchwork of autocratic theocrats and warlords who commit genital mutilation of little girls, honor killings against women, and allows famine, pandemic, mass killings, gun-point conversions, and a growing pirate trade is preferable to a stable centralized government that brings you fluoridated water, and a public health system.

A while back, Ben (the once and future Eclectic Anonymous...if I have anything to say about it)...recommended The Authoritarians to me...and even sent me a copy.  I am finally ready to start reading it...although I am still in the middle of three other books.  The total is down below 6 so I am ready to start another book.  :-)

Anyway, I'll probably be talking about it, so if anyone is interested, go out an gitchya a copy:  http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/

As always, if you don't fit the description, I'm not talking about you.

If you don't believe in God, then your life has no value, and they will shoot you in the face.  But presumably they will wait until the end times when God declares open hunting season on you.

Nice.  Remember...they're the moral ones.

This guy doesn't like it when I link directly to his site. He feels persecuted and cries about how he has a "stalker" when I do.  Right at the moment, I don't care.

 

 

He makes all sorts of claims about liberals and Hitler from time-to-time, even though he's completely unfamiliar with the stuff Hitler wrote.

Know how I know he's never read Hitler even though he talks about how liberals and scientists are Hitler all the time?



He describes examples given by liberals of Hitler's pro-Christian message as "cherry picked". The fact is, that everything Hitler wrote is so loaded with religious piety and posturing that you could "cherry pick" pro-Christian quotes with a scoop shovel. Everything the man did and said, he justified with Christian writings, history, the Bible, and a little anti-intellectualism, hatred of real science, and embracing of pseudo-science thrown in.



Then, Neil gives a quote that seems to be critical of Christianity, with a big, old, ellipse right in the middle, and the only attribution he gives is "Adolph Hitler". Nothing in the attribution to let you know where to look to find out what fell through the ellipses.



But that's OK, I've read enough of Hitler’s disgusting tripe to speculate on what sort of thing he might have been saying in that quote.



Hitler DID hate a certain kind of Christianity...know what kind? the namby-pamby social gospel kind. The wishy-washy liberal kind. The kind that was anti-authoritarian and talked about a lovey-dovey forgiving Jesus. He really, really, hated that kind of Christianity.



Know what kind of Christianity Hitler liked? The authoritarian kind that brought social order. The kind that promoted morals and self-sufficiency, and said that birth control was a sin, because mass struggle and death was the answer to improving humanity, not limiting population to ensure ample resources best cultivation of individuals (Which is what the liberals wanted.  Darwin is on record, for instance, in saying that the best way to improve humanity for maximum good is to cultivate the individual with a good and nurturing environment). Hitler also thought that homosexuality could be "cured", and that condoms were a bad answer to the spread of disease because they harmed public morality.  His Christianity lead him to reject Darwin and embrace the Paleyist belief that species could be improved within themselves, but that speciation could not occur, because all species were created unique at the beginning of the world (microevolution).  His level of offense at the idea that man could have come from animals caused him to burn Darwin's works and was palpable.  It probably didn't help that Darwin explicitly rejected the idea of managing heredity in humans as "a great consuming evil" probably explains why Hitler burned Darwin's books and embraced Martin Luther's suggestions that the Jews be rounded up, made to labor, their synagogs and businesses burned, their clergy killed or expelled, and ultimately, if they did not cease to be Jews, they would have to be killed.  "On the Jews and their Lies", by Martin Luther.  Read it if you don't believe me.



Also, Hitler preferred to think of Jesus as a warrior and a punisher.



Guess which kind of Christianity Neil likes? Well, he mocks "Gandhi Christ" and the social gospel at every opportunity...



But anyway, put Neil's "non-cherry-picked" Hitler quote into a search engine, and what do you come up with? Five sites. Strangely, they are all right-wing weirdo sites...and none of them are the sites that have published Hitler's writings...huh.



I'm glad I actually read what Hitler wrote. I hated doing it, but now I see that the Professor who advised us to read stuff like that was right. It immunizes you against stupid manipulation by the Neil's of this world.

 

 

Also, Neil implies that Hitler lied about his faith to further his agenda...interesting...and WHAT AGENDA WAS THAT? Anti-multiculturalism, anti-immigrant, anti-public health (no social solution to the spread of syphilis, for example, just calls for an increase in “public virtue”), anti-pluralism, anti-liberal, anti-Darwin, anti-intellectual, Pro-expansionist, Pro- national exceptionalism, pro-militarism, "pro-family" (the traditional, nuclear family), "pro-marriage", and pro-use of the "real" (non-liberal) church as a regulatory power in society, pro-government promotion of religion...and on and on and on...

 

As you read Hitler's writings and speeches, you can see his influences.  Darwin is not among them.  Machiavelli is, Octavius is, Martin Luther really, really, really is.  Paley, Lamark, and of course, he was very well versed in the political literature of his time.  The guy was very well-read, and he chose his message very carefully.  Why did he go with Paley and Lamark rather than Darwin?  Because Paley and Lamark said what he needed them to say, and Darwin didn't.  Why did he go with Luther instead of the modernist social-gospel teachers?  Because Luther said what Hitler needed him to say.

 

So what if it is possible that Hitler lied about his faith to further his agenda?  None of his actions are at all inconsistant with the faith that he professed.  He is very careful and maticulous in his explinations of how and why he comes to the conclusions that he does from traditional "Sound Doctrine".  The fact that he never balked or had qualms about where his faith-based doctrine lead him is the only thing that seperates him from the people who espouse that same doctrine today. 

 

And if he lied about believing it, he did so for a reason.  And it worked.  It motivated enough of an entire population to cause tremendous fear and compliance and complacence in the rest of the population...with disasterous results.  And it worked for a reason.  A very very important reason.  People should ask themselves what that reason is, and take a good, hard, look at the answer.

Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. 

Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime.

Teach a man to fish  and then weaken both enforcement of rules for commercial fishing interests, and environmental controls that support the fish population, and  you can say it’s not your fault that he’s starving ‘cause he’s a shiftless loser who doesn’t want to work to compete.
