Jason Miller has a fine rant posted over on CounterCurrents.org, Death Becomes Her
She is so rife with idiocy, devotion to “normalized violence,” and a river of venom that froths and seethes under her guise of “Christian compassion” that it is virtually impossible to pinpoint her most loathsome and dangerous trait. However, her zealous adherence to Western culture’s paradigm of dominionism, meaning dominion over the environment and nonhuman animals, demonstrates and encapsulates most of Sarah Palin’s myriad sociopathic tendencies that readily qualify her to occupy the Oval Office.
Palin epitomizes the banality of evil that permeates our planet murdering nation. Nursed at the teat of our culture of death and fiercely inculcated with the various components of its dominionism, it would be an existential impossibility for a person of her age to extricate herself from her mental straight-jacket. On a conscious level, she is probably as clueless about her malevolence as she is about US foreign policy and world affairs. And many of us perceive Sarah Palin to be a God-fearing, patriotic, “average Jo” showing those damn “intellectual elites” that we don’t need no stinkin’ knowledge to “git “˜r done,” champion of “family” values and the American Way. Again, Palin is one of “us,” or what many of us wish to become.
In McCain-Palin’s America, citizens who are protesting are being charged as terrorists. This means that a violent war had been declared on American citizens. A well known reporter leaked to me on background that St Paul police had dressed as protesters and, dressed in Black — shades of the Blackshirts of 1920 — infiltrated protest groups. (told you so — Admin)
I’ve yet to see anyone pen what the real danger is regarding Palin. Palin is being represented as the long-sought for “answer” for all of the Christian fundamentalists dreams (of all artificial flavors) and fantasies (including the MILF ones).
Let me give you an example shared with me — go read this link. This type of exceedingly dangerous thinking is being reflected throughout the nation by a very large contingent of believers, who are absolutely convinced that Palin will literally take the White House (never mind that McCain has to die or be incapacitated first).
To them, Palin represents the coming “glory of Zion”, the goddess, err “chosen instrument” of God to bring about the apocalyptic vision of biblical fulfillment.
If you don’t know what that means, you might know what this means: Armageddon. Envision a global, nuclear holocaust, preceded by enraptured believers following every word of their dominatrix, I mean dominionist leader, bringing hellfire and vengeance upon all the unbelievers.
I spent over 20 years in the ministry by the way and it remains “remarkable” (to put it kindly), how “prophetic fulfillment” is constantly shifted and twisted around to suit the hour (and candidates). The Christian right has firmly fixated its gaze upon Palin’s breasts, I mean best image, while conveniently ignoring the qualifications, experience and capabilities required for the job of President.
Make no mistake, they are not (s)Electing a Vice President, McCain himself (praise be unto him) is already sidelined by the gleaming smile of the Chosen One. It is a President they are choosing and one which they fully intend to see in the White House. But not one to restore the Republic — oh no, there will nothing of the sort (and it’s not even something that they actually want). But to bring about the End Times as depicted by (various) interpretations of the book of Revelation.
This is, in my opinion, the REAL driving force behind the Palin phenomena. Reason and experience and logic be damned to the Devil himself, Palin is the (current) pick for biblical fulfillment.
If she is (s)Elected for VP, I predict that this country will face a radical internal division and strife (conflict), the likes which we have never seen before. Palin is the perfect manipulated puppet, without a intelligent and original thought of her own, truly an instrument of the power elite.
Miller has it right, she represents too many of us and what they desire to be — in the drivers seat, dictating warped policies and decision making based upon gross misinterpretations and archaic views.
November is fast approaching while the world looks on. America has entered into a twilight zone of shimmering deceptions. On the horizon is the blinding, searing light of a nuclear holocaust.
Update: Naomi Wolf has an essay on this subject, sent in by Sally: The Battle Plan, The Muse Of The Coming Police State
What’s the plan? It is this. McCain doesn’t matter. Reputable dermatologists are discussing the fact that in simply actuarial terms, John McCain has a virulent and life-threatening form of skin cancer. It is the elephant in the room, but we must discuss the health of the candidates: doctors put survival rates for someone his age at two to four years. I believe the Rove-Cheney cabal is using Sarah Palin as a stalking horse, an Evita figure, to put a popular, populist face on the coming police state and be the talk show hostess for the end of elections as we know them. If McCain-Palin get in, this will be the last true American election. She will be working for Halliburton, KBR, Rove and Cheney into the foreseeable future — for a decade perhaps — a puppet “president” for the same people who have plundered our treasure, are now holding the US economy hostage and who murdered four thousand brave young men and women in a way of choice and lies.
You would do well to read Naomi’s essay — all of it. There is some very disturbing reports on what kind of harassments that have been going on.
