Sometimes I give away a Robert O’Brien Trophy to some mouth-breathing imbecile only to find, a few days later, an even more ridiculous example of human stupidity. And I’m afraid it’s happened again. And frankly, I can’t imagine finding anything any dumber than this column by Craig Smith at the Worldnutdaily. Who is Craig Smith? Well, his little bio at the end of the article announces him as “an author, commentator and popular media guest because he instantly engages audiences with his common-sense analyses of local, national and global trends.” And then it says he wrote a book claiming that oil is not fossil fuel at all, is constantly regenerated within the earth and therefore there is no shortage. Seriously.
But that book isn’t the crowning achievement in lunacy for Smith, not even close. This new column sets a gold standard of sheer stupidity that will be hard for anyone to top. He actually claims that the goal of “secular progressives” is to eliminate Christianity and Judaism from the US and turn it into a godless society. Now that’s pretty standard lunatic rhetoric, of course, but he doesn’t stop there. He claims that the reason we secular progressives are doing this – please don’t try and take a drink while you read this or you may ruin a keyboard – is to appease the terrorists. Because radical Muslims like nothing more than secular progressives.
He starts out speaking about having received a copy of a “secret plan” from George Soros (the right’s current boogey man du jour), John Kerry, Michael Moore and Howard Dean. And he blathers on about this for a few paragraphs, apparently thinking that he’s setting the stage humorously to make a serious point. In fact, he’s setting up the punchline of his incomparably moronic argument. Which is this:
The Plan: Analyzing the enemy and its goal was the first priority of the SPs. They wanted to know just what would appease the enemy. So they looked at the words of bin Laden and the Grand Mufti from the ’40s and realized the No. 1 goal of the Islamo-fascists was to kill all Jews and Christians who stand in the way of converting the whole world to Sharia Law. With that in mind, Soros, being a business man, saw this as a simple common sense proposition.
If America was godless and devoid of all Jews and Christians then there would be no need for terrorists to destroy that which does not exist. The plan would include, but not be limited to, the removal of any mention of God in our society. No Ten Commandments. No mention of God in our Pledge of Allegiance. Even ultimately taking ”In God we Trust” off our money. All prayer at sporting events would be outlawed. The mere mention of God would be punishable by prison. In essence, God would be removed from America.
The planners concluded that a godless nation, devoid of all Jews and Christians, that didn’t allow the mention of God, would no longer be a threat to their goal. Islamo-Fascists would then focus their full attention and fury on countries like Italy that host the Vatican; Australia, with its large Evangelical populations; and ultimately Israel, where the basis of belief in Judaism and Christianity are founded. The land that brought forth the Bible of the Jew and the Christian.
Keep in mind this plan has been underway for some time. Many moves have already been quietly put in place by the ACLU, MoveOn.org and other SP operatives. The final purging of all the last vestiges of God and believers will be accomplished as George Soros and his armies of godless complete the plan. That is if they are elected. Remember, they will only tell the public of their plan if elected.
This will all occur while the secular progressives claim they are merely doing so for the safety of the nation and to uphold the principle they hold so dear – the separation of church and state. The means justify the ends in that we will be a nation that has no value to anyone for we are a nation without values. Oh don’t worry. I’m not talking about your 401K or the value of your home. You will still get the weekly paycheck. Maybe a little less in it each week as your taxes will have gone up. The need for more government-sponsored social programs will be required to meet the needs that the churches and synagogues until now have serviced. Obviously, without churches and synagogues the need will be great.
So that is the strategy. A good one if you are an atheist or a Soros Kool-Aid drinker who believes it is better to switch than fight. It is quite different than the plan the neocons have put forward.
It’s so monumentally idiotic that it’s hardly worth fisking, only worth quoting. There’s no need to parody what is already a self-parody.
