This Is Why I Will Never Live In America

You may have heard about the religious right ‘Take Back America Conference’, which sought to break the world record for the number of hysterical claims made in one venue per hour take back American from the Liberal Hordes. There’s a recap over here, which, if accurate, is utterly terrifying. Some highlights:

  • [T]he fervent belief that America is at a tipping point between freedom and fascist power: President Obama and his congressional allies are on the verge of delivering America into Socialism, Communism, and/or Nazi-style tyranny, and that government is therefore to be feared and resisted
  • hostility not only to same-sex marriage but also to any legal protections for LGBT Americans and same-sex couples
  • a new push to use “abortion as black genocide” as a wedge between African Americans and pro-choice progressives built around a new “documentary” portraying abortion as 21st century genocide
  • American exceptionalism – the belief that America’s founding was divinely inspired and the nation has been uniquely blessed by God – is alive and well, though America is now living under a curse for having elected Barack Obama

I was really starting to think that, as a species, we had moved beyond believing in curses and arbitrary bouts of divine protection for certain countries. (Although then again, I also thought we were beginning to move beyond believing that gay and transgender people need to be ‘cured’ of their hideous afflictions. My rapidly blossoming misanthropy is apparently more justified than I thought.)

    Just keep in mind that the reason they think they need to take America back is that they don’t have it.

      Heh, good point. Let’s just hope they don’t ever ‘get it back’…

    A new film has been released that proves the Black Genocide connection. Before you form an opinion- Watch the film in full, called: maafa21. You can get coies and see the trailer here: http://www.maafa21.com.
    Remember that Margaret Sanger the founder of Planned Parenthood was a member of the American Eugenics Society, Maafa21 shows you the original documents which Planned Parenthood wants to hide.

    Pardon my skepticism, but the sheer amount of rhetorical tricks in that trailer is staggering. Soundbites and out-of-context quotes don’t make an argument, and I’m not about to put down money for a DVD based on something that weak. I don’t doubt the historical intent or activities of the American eugenics movement, but I do doubt that abortion provides are taking part in some sort of genocide attempt.

    I would be interested in seeing the documents you’re talking about if they’re available online for free, however.
