#EatTheChildren / #EatTheBabies

I fucking hate politics. I hate it so much, I'm happy to use R language on a blog that's usually PG-13.

The latest news is so insane, I literally tried to make it up, and reality decided "Hold my beer."

For those of you who read Hell Spawn, I had a possessed serial killer. It was as monstrous as I could make him. There were call backs to Aztecs, who ripped people's hearts out, and reference to Moloch and Crowley.

But nope. Leave it to politicians to take the most demonic shit I can think of, and then say "Challenge accepted".

Everyone knows that Alexandra Occasio-Cortez, the ex-bartender and current congress critter, comes from my home city... Damn it. 

Though, to be fair, AOC ran from a district so gerrymandered, it's painful to look at. (Sure, have a district that's part East Bronx and part Chinatown, there's nothing sketchy about that whatsoever.) It's 51% Hispanic, and she ran on the "I look like you and will disband ICE" ticket. And she's made so many friends, there are people on both sides of the aisle lining up to take her out in the next election.

One of her more infamous statements (lately) is that how the Earth will be destroyed by climate change in a matter of years / months/ weeks/ days, something like that.

So is it any wonder that we end up with a town hall meeting that ends like, well, this...

One woman stood up in the middle of the town hall meeting (about two from the front row, if I see it correctly) who proposed that AOC's Green New Deal didn't go far enough when fixing the planet. This woman cited the Swedish professor who suggested eating dead people, and stated that it, too, wouldn't be fast enough. 

She suggested that AOC's next slogan should be "We’ve got to start eating babies."

The nutcase kept going.
"..I’m so happy that you are supporting a Green New Deal, but it’s not enough. Even if we were to bomb Russia, it’s not enough. There’s too many people, too much pollution. So, we have to get rid of the babies. That’s a big problem. Just stopping having babies just isn’t enough. We need to eat the babies. This is very serious. Please give a response.”
The woman was at least on message. She even wore a shirt that said “Save the planet. Eat the Children. We don’t have enough time. There’s too much CO2."
Ocasio-Cortez responded by thanking the woman and saying, “One of the things that’s very important to us is that we need to treat the climate crisis with the urgency that it does present. Luckily, we have more than a few months.”
The woman shouted back, “no, we don’t!”

On the one hand, to her credit, AOC talked to her like any New Yorker would talk down any crazy person. Kudos. Granted, she burned all of that good credit when she started spinning it the very next day as trying to blame all of this ... on Republicans. Because endlessly claiming that the sky is falling will never create neurotic messes out of people in the public. 

AOC can't seem to figure out what to blame the Republicans for -- if this woman was a plant, or that "they" are focusing on this poor unfortunate soul who's a total nutcase...

But I'm not focusing on that. Because endless fear mongering is going to spark neurotic messes into a full psychotic meltdown. Duh. It happens. Nutcases are gonna nutcase. Especially when you tell them the fucking sky is falling and keep giving an ever-shrinking timeline in order to justify idiotic taxes.

What is truly disturbing isn't that some random nutter in the crowd suggested something so insane. Random nutcases happen. No. What's really and deeply concerning is that NO ONE IN THE AUDIENCE EVEN BLINKED. No, look at the audience. Eating children? Bah. Not the craziest thing they've ever heard on the climate change discussion. If they rode the subway, it probably wasn't even the craziest thing they'd heard in the last few hours.**

Though let's face it, this woman, and this audience, have been fed a steady diet of "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE" for their entire lives. They're true believers.  Apparently, they've all come to the conclusion that if the world's gonna end, then all things really are permitted. Even if you buy into the spin that it's a Republican setup (and if the establishment right had enough chutzpah to pull this in New York City, they'd actually run candidates anyone would remember long enough to vote for).

Hell, the only person in the entire room who looks put off by this is Occasio-Cortez herself. Which makes me suspect there might be a flicker of synapses in there... somewhere ... buried deep. Otherwise, AOC puts on a great act as a raving lunatic. But seeing what we have of her, I wouldn't bet on brains.

But even in my darkest dreams, I couldn't have imagined a mass political movement suggesting a proposal as insane as cannibalism ... and no one in the audience even making a face at it. And trust me, for Hell Spawn and the rest of the Saint Tommy series, I'm doing my damnedest. Literally.

But seriously, this once again proves that no matter what I do, no matter how much of the deepest, darkest, savage inhumanity and mass murder in the history of the world I research, nothing I create or assemble can top whatever horrors are thought up the the far left.

Apparently, being creative about evil can't top real evil.

Then again, I probably could not have created

  • A cruelty to animal group that murders puppies by the ton.
  • An environmental group that starts or encourages fires
  • A civil rights group that tries to deny civil rights to people they don't like.
  • "Child protective services" that abuse children.
  • "Education" that's indoctrination.
  • Enacting legislation to help child abuse victims while ignoring pedo-friendly BS enacted in public.

People wonder why I don't generally like talking politics on my blog. Or in general. Because it makes the thugee look like teddy bears and the Temple of Doom look like a tourist attraction for newborns.

I'd ask what was wrong with people, but if I liked people as a rule, I wouldn't be in a profession that locks me at a solitary desk all day.

Here. Something upbeat and cheerful -- a horror novel where a lone man kicks the everlasting shit out of the forces of darkness, fueled only by the Power of God.

**To be fair, there are conflicting opinions about the crowd reaction. Some people hear audible gasps in the crowd. I'm looking at faces, and have had crappy audio. If I missed it, mea culpa. But seriously, will someone blink, damn it.
