Nice to see 2nd & Charles has bullshit section with the “Biggest Douche in the Universe” right up front!
I intended to post this one a few months ago when the event happened but the post got pushed back in the drafts bucket until now.
The video below was yanked off YouTube shortly after it appeared in February, but the original uploader challenged the removal and the video was eventually restored for public viewing.
These are not joyous children reeling around an open field of flowers overflowing with the love of God.
Mass hysteria consists of a large number of people being influenced by a feeling of panic to the point that they begin to experience physical symptoms. These symptoms often mimic the well-documented state of hysteria, but are characterized by their rapid remission and frequent dependence on immersion in the atmosphere of panic. [RationalWiki]
This is real world human psychology and not the result of some invisible supernatural influence.
Notice the disgusting smiling parents that allow this to happen to their children casually standing around taking pictures.
This is another disturbing example of the abusive nature of childhood indoctrination.
I found myself at Whole Foods just ahead of the 4th of July and happened upon a small pamphlet on the ground containing cover to cover religious crazy.
Patriotism! ‘Murica! Gawd! Apocalypse!
Most religious tracts and pamphlets are typically between four to ten pages in length. This sucker weighs in at an unholy thirty-one pages of cherry picked Bible verses and carefully crafted religious fear mongering.
Here are the first few pages and a few random thoughts on the pamphlet material.
Terrorist God Invades & Demands Your Lovin’
Overthrow of the United States. Check.
Good old fashioned Christian fear mongering to get you started.
I DO NOT KNOW
The author throws throws terrorism and invasion at you and then immediately says “I do not know”? Nice.
… no person on earth can say for sure whether there will be an invasion of our beloved USA by terrorists or foreign countries.
In the real world there are many many people and organizations dedicated to counterterrorism and the defense of this country.
Invoking the specter of 9/11 and the notion of “nobody knows” is a ridiculous and typical setup for what happens next.
