All Hail the Idiocracy

And so, in the wake of yet another subhuman scumbag murdering innocents while hopped up on government-approved psychotropic drugs, what does the nation turn to?

Debating the wisdom of force-feeding what used to be street drugs to children down to the age of 6? Perhaps the wisdom of kicking all of the terminal nutcases out on the streets in the name of “personal liberty?”

No. Surely you jest. That would be entirely too logical, not to mention inconvenient in case we end up drawing all of the “wrong” conclusions about our so-called government’s innumerable legislative criminal fuckups.

What this nation clearly needs to stop drug-addled nutcases from shooting up innocent churchgoers is a ban on the Confederate battle flag. THAT will solve everything!

So weak-kneed, spineless coward after weak-kneed, mewling coward politician has backed down and started tearing down and outlawing a piece of U.S. history in the name of whatever the Hades they’re doing it in the name of. Perhaps their pagan gods have promised them that they’ll ban murder if they offer them just one more sacrifice on the altar of censorship and oppression?

And Amazon and Walmart have already joined ranks with the superstitious cave dwellers, banning all sales of the offending, apparently lethal flag from their stores.

Never to be outdone, the Church of Apple have also bowed down to the gods of idiocy and pulled all games with the Southern Cross in them. Which is to say any and all games depicting the War of Northern Aggression, since to allow such a flag in such a game would clearly be historically accurate raycisss and immediately cause another shooting.

That last one strikes a particular note with His Imperial Majesty since he likes to play historical war games and has, for ages, been mildly annoyed at having to mod every single one taking place in WWII since developers can’t allow swastikas in them. They wouldn’t be allowed to sell them in Germany if they did, you see, because any depiction of a swastika is illegal in that lovely, “free” euro-socialist country. So you either have to grit your teeth while playing, say, a WWII flight simulator where the German planes are all adorned with whatever replacement symbol the developers could get past the jackbooted German censors, or mod history back into what’s supposed to be a historical simulator.

We used to make fun of that, but now that the idiocy has come to the nation formerly known as “the land of the free”, it’s not quite as amusing anymore.

“So what? Who really cares about whether or not some symbol is left out of a simulator? Big whooping deal, get over yourselves”, I hear some cry, but it really isn’t a “small issue” in any way. Because what’s next? Well, how about Company of Heroes 2 being banned in Russia because it depicted the Soviet commissars on the Eastern Front in WWII as being “too brutal”?

Yes, we’ll wait for you to quit laughing/picking your jaws up off the floor. Some of the most murderous, subhuman swine in all of human history were being depicted “unfairly” by showing them ordering poorly armed troops into the jaws of waiting machine gun fire, because that surely never happened, and *poof*, a market gone for a major game developer.

Unless, of course, they were to somehow “modify” history in order to placate those who are all too offended by history as it was. Guess what they’re going to do eventually?

You get three guesses, and the first two don’t count. Remember the ban on swastikas in WWII games? They didn’t happen because UbiSoft believes in the primitive superstitions of “politicians” that somehow seeing a swastika on an Me-109 is going to make somebody build a concentration camp in their back yard. They happened because Germany is a big market, and it’s a foolish business who deliberately makes their product unsaleable in such a market.

“But it’s just GAMES, you nerd!”

Sure they are, though I resent the use of the word “just”, o convenient fictional dissenter. I’d like to see you even get a historically accurately modeled Me-109 off the ground or even get through the pre-flight checklist before setting it on fire.

But where do you think today’s youngsters get a huge part of their knowledge about history from? Public Skools? Majors in Gender Studies from our neo-Marxist bastions of “higher” learning?

And even if you DO believe that the younguns are still getting accurate information from those PC halls of indoctrination in good-think, who’s to say that they aren’t next in line for a once over with the fascist airbrush of censorship?

Best of luck with that childish faith in the fascists who would be our overlords.

Hmmm… We get a sudden urge to go buy two dozen Confederate battle flags from one of the vendors who still haven’t bowed down to their new masters. Just because we can.

Still.

Thatisall.

    In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy.

    George Orwell, we should have paid attention.

    Kinfolk of Lighthorse Harry and Robert E. Lee here, which I expect to be grounds soon for one of the most ironic lynchings in history.

    Of course ban the Confederate Battle Flag! That’s our one main objective! And guns. Our TWO Main targets for removal from society are CSA battle emblems, guns, and video games. THREE!! Our Three primary problems today are CSA emblems, guns, video games, and white privilege! FOUR!! Our Four major ills plaguing the nation and yea, the World, Mother Gaia, are CSA stuff, weapons of any sort, video games, white privilege, and Christianity! FIVE!! FIVE foulest … … !!!!!!!!!!!

    Um, so we’re going to set this nutcase free, because he obviously had nothing to do with the massacre? I mean, this was just another in an endless string of violent mass murders perpetrated by colorful pieces of cloth, right? And by folks who’ve seen said colorful pieces of cloth, of course.

    It’s hard being a Christian, *sigh*. Jesus wouldn’t want me to pull a reverse atomic scrotal wedgie on these freaks. *sigh*

    There seems to be some confusion locally (& elsewhere) between said Stars and Bars & the Southern Cross/battle flag.

    I’ve seen a couple of those “conspiracy theory” things out there, pretty uniform actually, that the shooter was actually a Marine/actor of another name than Dylann Roof. And it’s rather hard to overlook the distance traveled and the number of other Churches passed enroute to this particular one where the pastor just also happened to be a state senator. Like the number of other movie theaters passed to get to the one that had a gun free sign out front. And you can go on and on in that thread. But the sheeple don’t bother to look at the math. 2+2=4, not 5, regardless of what the masters insist.

    Where I finally had my fill of this bullshit was when the Visitor Center at Gettysburg….GETTYSBURG…..where a minor skirmish in the war of Northern aggression was fought decided to ban merchandise that had only the “Confederate flag” on it. That was enough, and that was when I got loud. I fought with everyone and anyone who thought the Stars and Bars was the “confederate flag”. It ain’t, its a battle flag designed to replace the real Confederate national flag in battle. The national flag was too close to the US flag in appearance and caused a lot of confusion during the first battle of Manassas/Bull Run. The flag flown above Southern state capitols and at memorials and cemetaries is not there for racist reasons, it’s there to honor the fallen and the legacy of the Southern fighting man. That is all.

    I think we are about to reach a big tipping point here, and timely it is given that we have a big election next year. The libs always overreach, the trick is to give them enough rope to hang themselves with. They are at that point right now, and inflated with victory and hubris they will try for more. I say get out of the way and let them go at it, if my instincts are right (and I so hope they are) they will do something really really stupid…..gun bans? taxation by driving mile? purging houses of faith that oppose gay marriage? restricting where the American flag can be flown?…..all possible, and all outrageous.

    Bring it on progressives oppressives, I’ll be sure to tickle your feet while you’rte dangling from your noose

    need an edit button that works….or I need to slow down a bit.

    The Stars and Bars is not the Confederate battle flag. Xystus has it right, it’s the Southern Cross……

    and then there’s this:

    1984? I prefer Orwell’s Animal Farm, and of course, head piggy Shrillary. Much more appropriate image (and funnier IMHO) than Winston’s overseers.

    Today, the Supreme Sewer decreed that you DON’T HAVE TO BE A CITIZEN TO VOTE. Isn’t that … special.

    Christians are under attack in New York and other Marxist hellholes. They’re slavering to attach churches’ finances (always perilous in Manhattan at best) and get rid of us all, hurt and cripple us. Which made me think of something the Master said.

    “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first.

    19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

    20 Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.

    21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.

    22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin.

    23 He who hates me hates my Father as well.

    24 If I had not done among them what no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen these miracles, and yet they have hated both me and my Father.

    25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’

    Take heed.

    Jesus also said this (Matthew, Chapter 10):

    And when ye come into an house, salute it.

    13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

    14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

    15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgement, than for that city.

    16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

    17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

    18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

    19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

    20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

    21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

    22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

    24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

    25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

    26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

    27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

    28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

    29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

    30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

    31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

    33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

    34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

    35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

    36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

    37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

    38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

    39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

    Now we shall see what the churches will do. I predict a great Winnowing Out. They’ve already abandoned so much of the gospel.

    The REAL underlying reason the Leftists hate the South so much is that we still cling to God and the Bible. Need I say more?

    The things they complain of ended 150 and over 50 years ago, respectively. These are excuses. The real hate is hatred of God and His moral commandments.

    Not sure why wargames would use swastikas in depicting WWII units anyway; the actual planes, tanks, etc. primarily used the balkankreuz, not the swastika, as identifying marks.
