Quote# 84510

Our intellectual, cultural, and political elites are today engaged in one of the most audacious and ambitious experiments in history. They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy made up of all the tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth. They have dethroned our God, purged our cradle faith from public life, and repudiated the Judeo-Christian moral code by which previous generations sought to live.

And what would that "Western CHristian Republic" be? England? Because the founding fathers never intended for America to be a Christian nation.

Is it just me, or has the Right been reeking of Fascism lately? Anyone? Anyone?

"Western Christian republic"

And what country would that be moron?

The fact that shit like this even gets airtime is a sad indictment of America.

"Dude. Move to Uganda. You'd love it."...

...and, Pat, you can EAT DA POO POO!

Y'know, if it wasn't for losers like Patty-boy, here, Africa wouldn't be such a mess. Africa, long ago was actually a pretty neat place with many great civilizations & cultures. Africa at it's best is a wonderful source of...among other things...magnificent arts, music, dance, natural resources, earth-based spirituality & natural splendor. It is also the cradle of humanity. So tragic what happened to that continent.

This reminds me of an article I'm analyzing for my Political Science class. It was written in 1997 and devoted to beamoning the loss of American "national identity" following the end of the Cold War, under the belief that there is no National American Identity unless Americans have an enemy they can rally against. The author actually says that multiculturalism damages America essentially because it forces them to give a fuck about other nations of the world. He also seems disturbingly nostalgic about the era of the Cold War.

It's called "The Erosion of American National Interests". It's pretty hilariously/disturbingly dated, but still worth reading in its own way.

They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy

Oh I keep forgetting you old, senile men think that that's a bad thing.

Also, no, we were never a "christian" republic.

10/27/2011 7:17:03 PM


Yes, and it's a good thing.

Sounds better in the original German.

10/27/2011 9:55:22 PM


I see nothing wrong with those things

10/27/2011 11:22:13 PM


How does one dethrone the all-powerful creator of reality?

10/27/2011 11:23:44 PM


If only our intellectual, cultural, and political elites actually spent their time on anything that worthwhile.

10/27/2011 11:34:26 PM


Consider all the implications of the word 'elite'.

10/28/2011 2:56:34 AM


The horror, the horror.

The Duelist

Hip, hip, hooray!

10/28/2011 5:21:18 PM


So Pat admits that he is not part of the intellectual, cultural, and political elite.


10/28/2011 5:32:36 PM


So... What's the downside again? Oh yeah. People like you are not really going to let that happen.



10/28/2011 8:27:10 PM


Kudos to them, I hope they succeed. It sounds like a good plan.

Which Western Christian republic are we talking about? Italy? Maybe France?
It can't be the US, as it has been made up of "all the tribes, races, creeds and cultures of Planet Earth" from day one, and has never had a State Religion.
If it didn't say "republic" it could be Sweden; we've recently dethroned our God, as in removed the State Church.

Btw, aren't most republics democracies?

10/29/2011 1:03:57 AM

It would make sense..........if It were written in the late Eighteenth century.

10/29/2011 8:08:33 AM


Good for you, America. Now that you're on a roll, is there any chance that you will find a Republican presidential candidate with half a brain and no belief in fairies?

Oh well, maybe it's a few millennia too soon for that particular leap forward.

10/29/2011 9:42:47 AM


According to the CIA World Factbook, the USA is a "Constitution-based federal republic; strong democratic tradition". There's nothing in the Government section about religion.

I think an egalitarian, all-inclusive democracy is a pretty fucking spiffy idea, myself.

10/29/2011 10:30:56 AM

Actually that experiment started over 200 years ago when this country was founded. That's what this country is, or at least was.

10/30/2011 9:02:04 AM


First off, not a Christian Republic, at least not yet, second off, how is this bad exactly? And last time I checked, only Jews and Christians follow Judeo-Christian 'morals'. The rest of us just follow morals.

10/31/2011 7:03:44 AM


"I'm not even pretending to be a xenophobic old git anymore!"

You've yet to explain the negative part of all this, boyo.

10/31/2011 5:45:20 PM

Great! Oh, were you trying to imply that's a bad thing?

10/31/2011 5:59:51 PM


How to be completely right and yet so utterly wrong in the same moment, as demonstrated by Pat. Bravo.
