One of the things that's always bugged me about the Westboro Baptist Church based in the great State of Kansas is that they're a bunch of pussy's when it comes to lifting a finger to bring down the wrath of God on the sodomites, Jews, musicians and many, many, many other sinners who disobey God's word. It's like they really don't believe their own preaching - They're sort of like the Occupy Wall Street gang in that they make a bunch of noise, say outlandish things, think they're "right" based on an interpretation of texts far removed from their daily experience but, in the end, will never throw down and start fighting (or more to the point, start killing). They're weak (as DJT might say) and don't back up their rhetoric with any meaningful action. Granted, any organization that will protest a Guns & Roses concert can't be all bad, but taken as a whole WBC sucks eggs and it's members will probably suffer eternal damnation - fear the Lord.
Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO June 29, 2016 7:15 PM - 8:00 PM WBC to picket near Arrowhead Stadium where Guns N' Roses performs and teaches proud sin to their fans. WBC must remind them how much it displeases God for them to use the platform he gave them to blaspheme His name. Guns N' Roses is part of the rock-band era (late 1980s-early 1990s) known as the hedonistic rebelliousness period. With their debut album, Appetite for Destruction, they burst on the scene with their Hell Tour in 1985. From then until now band members have lived lives of notorious proud sin, with the three tenured members - Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan - changing sex partners more often than their socks, and racking up multiple divorces/remarriages.
Axl Rose has a better chance of walking through the pearly gates than your average WBC congregationalist though, admittedly, his odds are one in a million. Why? Because good or bad, right or wrong, Axl Rose will take off his leather jacket and start swinging fists - kicking, biting, pulling hair - going as far as he needs to go (and beyond) to make his point. He's many things but he's no pussy. When it comes to morality Axl is closer to Kansan John Brown than he is to the sunflowers who populate the WBC and as any historian knows - John Brown meant what he said. If you want to kill some pro-slavery folks in Kansas, where kill'n was free and easy in the 1850's then go for it, because you might as well have been in the Land of Oz as far as polite society goes, but if you haul your ass down to Harpers Ferry, Virginia (it was still Virginia in those days) and pull the same stunt, why, you might just ignite a civil war.
Allah Hates Fags
Which brings me to Omar Mateen and his commitment to abolishing homosexuality (among other things) in the most magical place on earth - Orlando, Florida. There is a stereotype of middle eastern men that paints them as perfumed, sissified, duplicitous scoundrels who beat their women and bend over 5 times a day for their god. It's not fair to generalize, but in this case the prejudicial sketch hits the mark like a SWAT sniper zeroed in on a cackling jihadi clown turned (BANG!) shit stain. And the Westboro Baptist Church should take notice because if they think their "god hates fags" then "Allah really hates fags" and his swarthy followers will go postal to make the hate real. One might even surmise that the WBC are worshiping the wrong god and should convert to a religion better aligned to their principles. How the actions of this 21st century abolitionist will play out is anybodies guess, but if history can be used for a guide I see rivers of blood in our future.
I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young gunman named Patrick Crusius who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years - The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing , the Emanuel AME Church shooting , Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik , Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting , Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting , the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list
She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view
Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a month before the September 24th hearing where overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q
