A post this morning by the bright light calling himself Gribbit is an archetypcal example of the sort of uninformed trash that forms the basis for virtually everything appearing on this sorry excuse for a weblog. Read it for yourself, then read my summary below.
Gribbit immediately shreds his own credibility by referencing the tinfoil hats supposedly worn by others even as he wallows in a bizarre, undeniable, and toxic stew of outright paranoia. But even without this fine touch, his post fails on an amazing number of levels.
"Without law and order, a society will decline into chaos."
Stupid premise #1: Opposing the Trafford curfew is tantamount to opposing every statute on the books.
"When society declines into chaos, drastic measures by your beloved liberal thinkers all lead to one end, Communism."
Stupid premise #2: The potential overturning of Trafford's curfew law heralds the fall of a capatalistic and democratic society, even though numerous similar rulings throughout the U.S. have failed to produce this result.
Stupid premise #3: A communist society is less likely than a free one to impose harsh behavioral crackdowns on its citizens.
"Your gods in black robes will then apply more drastic measures than any theocracy in the mold of the old Central Committee."
Stupid premise #4: Liberal judges are as well known for killing heretics and suppressing discoveries that contradict organizational doctrine as were the murderous Christian clerics during the four major Inquisitions.
"There is no one at this site or others that is advocating a theocratic rule here in the US, except maybe the left under the guise of separation of church and state."
Stupid premise #5: Actually, this is just a flat-out lie. All sorts of cretins openly favor a theocracy, even if they're often sanguine enough to avoid using the word. And hey, Gribbit, ever heard of Pat Robertson? Chris Buttars? Roy Moore? How about the entire state of South Carolina?
"Lefties want to remove religion from the public square which is in itself a form of religious expression."
Stupid premise #6: Not granting special favors to Christians constitutes a desire to abolish all public expressions of religious belief.
Stupid premise #7: A political movement aimed at limiting undue religious influence is itself religiously motivated. (This is a corollary to the equally untenable claim that "atheism is a religion.") I suppose that Gribbit thinks that "OFF" on his TV remote is just as much a channel as Comedy Central or the Jesus Leg-Humper Network.
"Secular Humanism has been labeled a religious sect by the Kings by Committee otherwise known as the Supreme Court of The United States."
Stupid premise #8: Another bald-faced lie.
"And real URL’s are required to comment on my posts MORON!"
Stupid premise #9: Visitors to Gribbit's shitpile of a site are expected to know this despite the absence of a posted comment policy. It's as obvious as can be that this rule is only in place to
Also, Gribbit enjoys editing others' posts, the last refuge of the shameless idiot with no valid defense of his positions and no reasonable answer to his critics.
Stupid premise #10: Erasing the truth from a Web site will lead to its erasure from reality. If things really worked this way, the fun bunch at StopTheACLU.com might actually wield some clout instead of serving as a pathetic yet grotesquely alluring source of amusement for thinkingfolk.
