In the US, it’s a bizarro battle between the faith skeptics and the knowledge skeptics

bizarro news

By Patrick Devlin With reasonable America reeling from the breathtaking body-blows that the boorish, bigoted, ill prepared and incompetent Donald Trump regime has leveled on our body politic over the past few months, it appears that those who believe that simply de-Donalding the USA will #MAGA may be disappointed to find that the same Republicans whose voting antics brought forth #tRump’s America believe that higher education in general is a threat to our nation. In a poll recently conducted by the Pew Research Center, 58 percent of the respondents who identified as Republican said that higher education hurts our country. […]

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

by Patrick Devlin As the bully-boy coward Donald Trump spoke at a rally at a Christian college on January 20 in Oklahoma, a gang of his middle-aged flabby thugs assaulted audience members who chose to silently protest the public event. Strangely, for this audience of self-proclaimed Christian Trump-thugs, no one mentioned the words of Jesus; “I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.” The assaults have now become […]

Won’t back down

Won’t back down

by Patrick Devlin The media has advised us that the real estate salesman candidate for president “won’t back down”. Not yesterday, today or for the foreseeable future. America’s casino condo king will continue to make bogus, bigoted and bizzaro statements – throwing red meat to the slack-jawed and sanctified, the bankrupt and bigoted – the foreclosed upon neo-fascisti. Even when news announcers take a firm tone, the real estate salesman candidate simply won’t back down. His legion of supporters remind that, speaking in generalities as he does and using dog-whistle coded language, the real estate salesman’s shtick doesn’t amount to […]

Universal soldiers and terrestrial body counts

Universal soldiers and terrestrial body counts

by Patrick Devlin When a terror event happens scared Americans, shaken from their consumer product induced coma, often begin demanding answers. After the inhuman and insane Paris attacks many citizens, perhaps overcome with fear and anger, demanded to know how faithful Muslims could have let the attacks happen and demanded that Muslim communities take responsibility for and apologize for the attacks. This strain of fetid group think was shown in all of its intricate bigotry, know-nothingness and apoplectic xenophobia on CNN as two of its talking head news announcers aggressively demanded an apology from a member of the Parisian Muslim […]

Beginning to Look a lot Like Christians

Beginning to Look a lot Like Christians

by Patrick Devlin Rio Rancho, NM high school teacher Katrina Guarascio received the gift of unemployment this holiday season from one of her students who became offended after a peer turned in a creative writing assignment that led to Guarascio being turned in to school officials. Guarascio asked her students to rework a mythical tale to take place in modern times. One of the creative writers took on the myth of Christ producing hundreds of fishes and loaves out of his cassock to feed a ‘multitude’ who gathered to hear one of the Fidel-Castro-length lectures the first century homeless preacher […]

Christ Needs to Tap One of Those Rich Dudes in Heaven

Christ Needs to Tap One of Those Rich Dudes in Heaven

by Patrick Devlin Biblical financial self-help pitchman Dave Ramsey, whose get-rich-scheme is to convince followers of the first century homeless preacher called Jesus of Nazareth (who advised cult members to “give up all you own and follow me”) that they can become get-rich-quick-Christians by buying his greed absolving screeds and who is featured weekly on the TV station owned by televangelist-presidential candidate-sect leader Pat Robertson, advised viewers recently that, stunningly, Christ was a heretic. Ramsey was hawking his latest tract, The Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity when he advised Robertson and his TVland fold that […]

Beautiful, delicious summer

Beautiful, delicious summer

by Patrick Devlin Been thinking of having a summertime picnic – and as it always is with a picnic, trying to determine what yummy summertime portable food to bring, what other equipment to pack – and most importantly : the setting. I’ve picnicked on the banks of Amphitheater Lake on the top of Wyoming’s Grand Teton, on the iron-stone shores of Lake Superior, in the springtime groves of the Hudson River Valley’s fragrant blooming apple orchards, on the banks of the Flathead River in the Great Bear Wilderness, watching the sun sink below Midwestern farm fields and the Mississippi River, […]
