The Cult of Fools – Facebook says “No” – May 9, 2021

The Cult of Fools - Facebook says "No"

This past week we got the Facebook decision regarding the Trump Ban. It was perhaps inevitable that no matter what they said, rather a lot of people were going to be unhappy.

The fact that it is Trump and his glassy-eyed cult followers that are upset with the decision is truly a good outcome. Their response is everything you might imagine it to be. Luckily we don’t get to find out what Trump thinks because it turns out that he is not the messiah, but instead he has been a very naughty boy and has had his social media megaphone taken away … permanently. As for others, oh come now, you know the drill, it was stuff like this …

What other crazy things have bubbled to the surface during this past week?

Plenty. There is never any shortage. The ongoing arms race amongst those seeking influence and attention guarantees it.

You will find below a few more examples that have popped up during the past week. I’ve highlighted these so that we can laugh about it all. I find that to be the best response to the batshit insane that flows from this cult of fools.

COVID-19

  • Rick Wiles Says COVID-19 Vaccines Are a Plot to Carry Out ‘Global Genocide’
    • He claimed “a lot of stupid people will be killed off.” That is true, but those taking that hit will be the unvaccinated, not the vaccinated
    • To give you some additional context, this past week he also rolled out this old trope – Rick Wiles Says ‘The American People Are Being Oppressed by Jewish Tyrants’. That conspiracy claim is so old he must have had to blow dust off it before deploying it.
  • DeAnna Lorraine warns that the effort to get people vaccinated is a “modern-day Holocaust,” complains that it’s teaching people to trust science instead of their guts, and says it’s all the work of Satan.
    • Teaching people to “trust science”, the evidence based stuff that is proven to work, is indeed an endeavour that most educators can happily endorse. DeAnna is literally claiming that schools are a nefarious plot, the work of Satan, and that ignorance is the high road.
  • Stew Peters declares that people who get the COVID-19 vaccine “will be the ones falling over and dying” and “we will be in a better place without them.” His guest, QAnon conspiracy theorist DeAnna Lorraine, agrees: “Maybe Darwin’s theory is true.”
    • If they really believe this then perhaps they need to go out and campaign so that all the people they hate should go and get vaccinated.

Josh Dugger Update

Josh Dugger was back in the news this past week. This is the guy who was a Christian Reality TV star and the executive director of the Family Research Council. He was described as the “epitome of conservative values”. That turns out to be rather accurate because the latest update this past week is this …

Bizarre

  • Mychal Massie proclaims that “the Democratic Party is the most existential proof that evil exists since the serpent entered the Garden.
    • Talking snakes that tricked you into eating fruit were never a thing.
  • Dave Daubenmire insists that “there is no racism in America” and that white Christian men are the real victims of discrimination and persecution: “There is an assault on white Christian Americans.”
    • I’m struggling to grasp how the mutually exclusive claims of “There is no racism” and “my white race is being oppressed” can be both believed as true at the same moment in time.
  • Cirsten Weldon claims that Hillary Clinton died several months ago of kuru, which is a disease caused by cannibalism.
    • Just when you think it could not get any weirder, up pops this.

Fools of the week – The False Profit$

The stars of this weekly show are of course the religious grifters. To be wholly clear, most humans, regardless of their belief or non-belief are decent. Some however grasp belief and deploy it as a tool to manipulate and enrich themselves. This section is very much dedicated to these con artists …

That’s a wrap for this week.

Will next week be any different, is it possible for all these crazy people to suddenly find some common sense?

Nope, as I pointed out in previous weeks, “Common Sense” amongst these folks is so damm rare that it is akin to a super power. It will be lots more of the same ridiculous claims for us to laugh at and mock.
