Chernobyl is no longer the owner of the world’s greatest meltdown, and Krakatoa no longer reigns as the greatest spewer of oxygen-sucking fumes and choking ash.
Those titles are now held by the American Left Wing as represented by Paul Krugman, Moron Dowd and the editorial board of the Minneapolis Star & Sickle.
Oh, But They’ve Gone Start Raving Mad.
The first two paragraphs of the today’s rancid offering in the S&S are all one needs to read:
In a column this week, the New York Times' Paul Krugman mused about the dangers inherent in the rise of religious extremism in the United States. Increasingly, he said, the Christian right wing is willing to bend the law, ignore the spirit of the law, rewrite the law and ultimately reinterpret the law by packing the court with fellow travelers. All this in order to impose upon the nation an extremist religious ethic that looks more Iranian than American.
You've seen this play out over the past few weeks in lurid, 24/7 coverage of federal meddling in the Terri Schiavo case. It's also affecting the classroom as more teachers come under pressure to teach "intelligent design" as a counter to evolution science. And it is coming soon to the U.S. Senate in the form of a Republican effort to prohibit filibusters against the most radical of President Bush's federal court nominees.
These fruit are actually concerned about the United States becoming a Theocracy. They are concerned because, horror of horrors, people in this country believe in God and go to church, synagogue, and mosque, pick your place, on a regular basis.
Head for the hills, the world is ending.
Actually, what is coming to an end – albeit a slow one – is the dominance of the left and their worship of government.
It’s quite simple, really. The more people turn to God and, by extension other people, for comfort and support the less they need to turn to government – at any level. And with that goes the base of the Left: the needy, the poor, and the downtrodden.
After 60 years or redistributing wealth for the purpose of curing all ills, the Left has run out of steam because things ain’t that bad and for those who do need help it is there for the taking.
As long as they don’t mention God.
