“To protest against environmentalists and the Obama administration, conservative truck owners are tricking-out diesel pickups with coal stacks that belch out puffs of black smoke in a new campaign in the political culture war.”
Liberals are assholes because many of the things they stand for are wrong, and even some of the good things they stand for are pursued in a manner that is wrong.
But conservatives have achieved something more remarkable by increasingly standing for nothing, and managing to be even bigger assholes while doing it. – Joe Grabowski
Ideology is heresy. Heresy is sin. Sin is where a creature “asserts it’s nothingness”. And sin makes you stupid. And so the ideological left and right, in abandoning its connection to Christ (accept for use as a flag now and then) increasingly is about the exaltation of Nothingness, whether through abortion and euthanasia, or through mindless atavistic nihilism.
It’s the gospel–or Nothing. Oh, and before anyone begins with the vapors about how the saints would never talk that way:
“[F]or as long as your reverend paternity will be determined to tell these shameless lies, others will be permitted, on behalf of his English majesty, to throw back into your paternity’s shitty mouth, truly the shit-pool of all shit, all the muck and shit which your damnable rottenness has vomited up, and to empty out all the sewers and privies onto your crown divested of the dignity of the priestly crown, against which no less than against the kingly crown you have determined to play the buffoon.” - St. Thomas More, Consummate Badass
Grabowski let these clowns off easy.
