Massie: America on Verge of Collapse

Mychal Massie, another one of those incredibly far right African-American pundits that conservatives love so much, says America is on the verge of collapse. And wouldn’t you know it, it’s all because we’re not godly enough and we don’t hate gay people enough.

America has lost her way, and accordingly, America has lost the worldwide respect she once commanded. And no group is more aware of this than ISIS. 

Our Founding Fathers had a reliance upon God that they neither apologized nor retreated from. Whether we read John Adams, George Washington or the collective works of those who fought for our independence, one cannot deny that they had a dependence upon God.

But today, the “faith of our fathers” is just that – the faith of our fathers. America has turned from “In God We Trust” to trust in evil men. And as my close friend and colleague James David Manning put it, “America no longer fears God, so therefore nations no longer fear America.”

His close friend and colleague James David Manning, a man who is utterly deranged. This is the same Manning who says that the Hubble telescope proved that gay people are evil, who prays for gay people to get the Ebola virus, presumably before he can stone them to death. I’m certainly not surprised that they’re friends. Bigots of a feather and all.

ISIS and the other Muslim threats are rabid followers of a false prophet (Muhammad) and a false god (Allah), but they are zealots in their service to their pagan beliefs. They view America in light of what she supports – and let there be not one doubt that these pagans understand that the homologation of same-sex marriage, sodomy, the wholesale slaughter of 54 million unborn children, weak politically correct officials, ad nauseum are not the qualities of the enlightened; they are the traits of the damned.

What is it with Christian right bigots and their incorrect use of “pagan”? That word does not mean “anyone Mychal Massie doesn’t like.” And it certainly does not mean Muslims.

    “America no longer fears God, so therefore nations no longer fear America.”

    Both of those things are good things.

  • rationalinks

    It really shows how ignorant they are when they say things like “false god (Allah)”. Um…that would be the exact same god that you worship, so are you saying that your god is false?

  • Loqi

    …let there be not one doubt that these pagans understand that the homologation of same-sex marriage, sodomy, the wholesale slaughter of 54 million unborn children, weak politically correct officials, ad nauseum are not the qualities of the enlightened; they are the traits of the damned.

    So she admits they’re on the same side then?

    That’s some straight-out-of-Revelations shit right there. If “America no longer fears God” and is filled (and run by) the Damned, shouldn’t other nations fear it more?

  • alanb

    Mr. Massie seems to be one of those people who like to use big words when more diminutive ones mean the same thing.

  • John Pieret

    they say things like “false god (Allah)”. Um…that would be the exact same god that you worship, so are you saying that your god is false?

    No, no! Allah is the same as the Judeo god which isn’t the same as the Xian god because the Judeos and the Mooslems left out the other two gods inside their gods. Sheesh! Ain’t it obvious?

    The conflation of paganism and Islam is a popular meme within fundie America. That’s due to an argument from a Jack Chick tract getting spread around on viral email after 9/11 through at least the late-2000s.

    My prior post:

    The conflation of paganism and Islam is a popular meme within fundie America. That’s due to an argument from a Jack Chick tract getting spread around on viral email after 9/11 through at least the late-2000s.

    I meant to continue.

    I thought the paganism/Islam conflation resonated particularly well during the 2008 campaign for a couple of reasons. One was that George W. Bush was no longer speaking out to minimize the hatred conservative Christians wanted to dole out against Muslims, which really took off in 2008 and continued for a few years (it seems to have died done some but the IS should rile them back up). So there was no check against their bigotry, by the 2008 campaign season defamation against Muslims and blacks was generally encouraged within their political circles (Sen. McCain being an exception). Both defamations led the Fox News prime-time shows relentless for several weeks. They weren’t embedded deep into the time slot, from Spring through mid-Summer in 2008 Fox’s lead segment was relentlessly focused on promoting bigotry towards Muslims and racial hatred towards black people.

    Second, the Chick tract tied Islam’s roots to worshipping monkeys. Tie that to false accusations Barack Obama was Muslim and that he’s black, and the paganism/Islam conflation is both a convenient and perfect dog whistle for referencing conservative Christians’ deep racism and hatred of uppity black people like Barack Obama without having to be overt about it. I’m confident some of these racists assert they’re not, in spite of their behavior validating they are.

    Wait, but the Judeo/Mooslim god is the same as one of the three of the Xian god(s), doesn’t that make him/it partially false? It’s like that scene from Conan where the real wizard is hiding with the “fake” mirror images of himself.

    No the real question is this:

    Does the Judeo-Christian god have DID?

    Oh, thank Cthulhu I’m not the only one who thought that when Dingo said “DID”.

  • grumpyoldfart

    I’m sure that liberal Christian websites will soon be commenting on this nonsense and warning other Christians that Massie has got it wrong.

    “America has lost her way, and accordingly, America has lost the worldwide respect she once commanded. ”

    “America has turned from “In God We Trust” to trust in evil men.”

    You know, if he was Obama’s minister …

  • Dave Maier

    Points for “homologation”, which I’d never seen before; those same points deducted for “ad nauseum”.

    Also, Michael, would you know which Jack Chick tract that was?

  • D. C. Sessions

    Sure sounds like the only motivation in his life is fear.

  • eric

    America no longer fears God,

    ‘Tis true. Then again, if He could hit the dart board more often, I might be afraid to stand in front of it.

  • eric

    [these] are not the qualities of the enlightened; they are the traits of the damned.

    Wait, I thought the enlightened were the damned.

  • dingojack

    “Dissociative Identity Disorder’. But mocking mental illness (in all it’s forms) just makes you so über-cool. Amiright? @@

    “America has lost her way, and accordingly, America has lost the worldwide respect she once commanded. ”

    And when exactly did America have even partial worldwide respect, exactly?

    What the hell is with the “fear god” crap?

    If he loves us why should we fear him. Or is this a bullying type of abusive relationship?

    You should love and fear your master?

    I say bullshit. One of the reasons I left churches and religion. Full of crap.

    .

    That’s it. If you can see fundamentalist Christianity (or Islam or Judaism) as a scaled-up abusive family, you understand much of it. I left the church for other reasons (no evidence for gods), but years later when I read about the dynamics of abusive households and the behavior of the children* I realized that I was reading about the Southern Baptist Convention.

    .

    * Abused children usually learn to be either abusers themselves, or be victims of abusive partners. They never, ever (well, hardly ever) admit to themselves that they are being or have been abused. They usually feel like they deserve the mistreatment, even when they don’t know what particular thing they did wrong. The most likely way they escape this is to have a trusted adult tell them in no uncertain terms that they are being abused, even if that person can’t help the child escape.
