Blame

So far I have seen the following people/groups blamed for the shootings in Tuscon:

  • Sarah Palin
  • Rush Limbaugh
  • The Tea Party
  • “Uncivil” people
  • Fox News
  • Glenn Beck
  • Sean Hannity
  • Bill O’Reilly
  • Republicans
  • Conservatives
  • Conservative Republicans
  • Libertarians
  • Gun Nuts
  • 10th Ammendment Supporters
  • Birthers
  • Michelle Bachman
  • John Boehner
  • Newt Gingrich
  • Jan Brewer

And I’m sure the list is very incomplete and will continue to have additions in the weeks and months ahead.

I’d like to point out two things.  First, this kid obviously had mental illness problems.  That is all over his background, including the fact that two different schools refused to let him attend without a mental exam and clearance.  He apparently existed on pot, which is always a good thing to help schizophrenia (NOT!).  In the past, we used to segregate those who were a threat to themselves and others from regular society in order to protect the sick person and society.  However, our twisted, politically correct America now puts everybody at risk rather than possibly, maybe incarcerate 1 single person who might not be as sick as everybody else.  Well, the “we don’t need asylums” people have lots of blood on their hands.

And secondly, there is one person/group that I know is responsible:

Culture of Death Defined

What happened:

Eighteen and pregnant, Sycloria Williams went to an abortion clinic outside Miami and paid $1,200 for Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique to terminate her 23-week pregnancy.

Three days later, she sat in a reclining chair, medicated to dilate her cervix and otherwise get her ready for the procedure.

Only Renelique didn’t arrive in time. According to Williams and the Florida Department of Health, she went into labor and delivered a live baby girl.

This is very similar to a situation that Our New President, The Most Holy and Chosen Egoness, voted on 3 times in the Illinois State Senate.  And his answer was very simple – the woman came to kill the baby, the baby should die.  And that seems to have been the answer in this case:

What Williams and the Health Department say happened next has shocked people on both sides of the abortion debate: One of the clinic’s owners, who has no medical license, cut the infant’s umbilical cord. Williams says the woman placed the baby in a plastic biohazard bag and threw it out.

Police recovered the decomposing remains in a cardboard box a week later after getting anonymous tips.

Please explain to me why people on BOTH sides of the abortion debate are shocked by this.  Why wouldn’t pro-choicers stand up and say “What’s so bad about this?  Its the object of an abortion – its just a lifeless clump of cells and its no one’s business but this knocked up 18-year old. ”  I don’t think that both sides of the abortion debate are shocked at all.  I think that the pro-abortion bunch is simply mad that this information got out.

The complaint says one of the clinic owners, Belkis Gonzalez came in and cut the umbilical cord with scissors, then placed the baby in a plastic bag, and the bag in a trash can.

Williams’ lawsuit offers a cruder account: She says Gonzalez knocked the baby off the recliner chair where she had given birth, onto the floor. The baby’s umbilical cord was not clamped, allowing her to bleed out. Gonzalez scooped the baby, placenta and afterbirth into a red plastic biohazard bag and threw it out.

The only problem from the abortionists point of view is that this disposal of a baby happened outside the woman’s uterus rather than inside it.  The object of the exercise was a dead baby in a plastic bag.

And no quibbling about what was inside of this woman’s womb.  The article notes:

At 23 weeks, an otherwise healthy fetus would have a slim but legitimate chance of survival. Quadruplets born at 23 weeks last year at The Nebraska Medical Center survived.

This was the planned murder of a baby.  The real tragedy is that had this “doctor” shown up on time and performed his murder while it was inside the woman it would simply be called “choice”.  And that choice happens all the time in America, every day.

There’s lots and lots of lood on the hands of “abortion providers”, and Harry Blackmun will be washing his hands of it forever.

Drawing a Straw Man

Here’s a perfect example from some Bezerkley English Professor who is railing against Christianity and evangelical Christianity in particular:

Fundamentalist Christianity is essentially anti-modern. It holds that truth became manifest two thousand years ago, and everything since—Copernicus and the solar system, the work of Galileo and Michelangelo, the scientific discoveries of Newton, Bacon and Locke, Wollstonecraft and the rights of women, the abolition of slavery, Darwin and Wallace, anesthesia, vaccines against smallpox and polio, progress in civil rights and social justice, the invention of the automobile, bicycle, telephone, airplane, radio, television, computer—is of no consequence. Even though most fundamentalist Christians (unlike the consistent Amish) enjoy the advantages of modern discoveries, inventions, and medical care, they do not acknowledge human ingenuity. (If pressed, they will say God is responsible for all material forms of human progress.) The highest achievements in mathematics, music, painting, sculpture, and literature are of no compelling significance or interest.

Now, compare this with the hysterical cries of “denier” thrown at anyone who even questions the word of the Great Idiot – Algore (Cursed Be His Name).  Do you even know any evangelical Christians Miss Intellectual Snob?

I know lots of them and absolutely none believe that the bicycle is some mythic invention.  In fact, I don’t know of anyone who believes that bicycles are non-existent.  And all evangelicals believe that phones and televisions and medicine exist and have improved the lives of all – even lame-brained idiots in California.

And if you check your history you will find that lots and lots of Christians gave their lives in the ending of slavery in this country – and it is Christians who today are bringing up the inconvenient fact that slavery is rampant in Muslim countries like Sudan and Saudi Arabia.

Why, I even know evangelical Christians who paint and play music and understand mathematics.  I don’t know any who sculpt, but then how many sculptors does anyone actually know of?  There are about 6 world-wide who can make a living at it, so probably not a talent you run into a lot.

And I know of absolutely no evangelical Christians who are violently anti-anesthesia or anti-vaccines or anti-civil rights.  However, let’s get to what seems to have really gotten under the skin of Miss Straw Man:

In so far as it takes any interest in science, fundamentalist Christianity is defensive, attempting either to reconcile the Bible with, or to subvert, science. Its main preoccupations appear to be the control of female sexuality and reproduction (no birth control, no possibility of abortion), the criminalization of homosexuality, access to government funds for its “faith-based initiatives,” and the injection of a primitive Christianity into all aspects of the public sphere, from government ceremonies to first-grade classrooms.

Yes – evangelical Christians have morals and believe that killing babies is murder.  They also believe that homosexuality is immoral and say so.  They believe that destroying marriage at the whim of gays is destroying the major building block of civilization itself.  And I don’t mean one of, I mean the major building block of civilization is marriage and family.  Without that we are all just a pack of raping pillagers and looters who’s major achievement is survival to the next minute and nothing else.  No painting, no mathematics, no music, no sculpture.  Just weapons and death.

And not only do we understand this – we are actually willing to stand up for our moral beliefs and say that others are wrong.  That is the true itch under Ms. Bezerkley’s skin.  She is really angry that anybody would tell her she is wrong.  She knows it in her heart, but she resents the fact that someone else knows it and might actually reprove her for her moral failure.

As for the rest, most evangelical Christians wouldn’t touch government “faith-based initiative” money with a 10 foot pole.  Unlike college professors, these people know that taking their money means having to live by their rules.

Oh yes – and we will continue to resist evolution as a theory of “magic”.  Right up until you can put a bunch of chemicals in a test tube and get them to come up with even ONE cell.  The still unknown mysteries of DNA, RNA, mitochodria, cellular membranes, and all the workings of one living cell are a big obstacle to “it just sort of happened” explanations.  Even if you do have some cool dude with a beard to front the operation.
