Lessons from the Latest Act of Christian Fundamentalist Terror

Posted by libhom Wednesday, June 10, 2009

The corporate media want us to merely wring our hands after a Christian Right extremist attacked the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. And, yes, the white supremacists are Bible thumpers, despite claims from Christian Right propaganda to the contrary. We need to learn from this and start to take action as a country.

1) Private Gun Ownership Should Be Banned:

Guns are becoming favored tools of terrorists, not only in the US, but also in India during the Mumbai attacks. There are no legitimate reasons for private gun ownership, and the Second Amendment only applies to government sponsored militia. The security guard killed today joins roughly 30,000 people in this country killed every year by guns.

2) Fundamentalist Christianity Is Getting Desperate and Dangerous:

With numbers and fervor declining after the AWOL Rapture and with their political party in shambles, the Christian Right is realizing that they will never really be able to shove their religion down peoples' throats using the democratic process. The teabagger rhetoric often is inflammatory and violent, as is the case with the anti abortion rhetoric. However, the rightists are getting less content with rhetorical venting.

3) There Needs to Be Accountability of the Corporate Sponsors of Rightist Hate:

People should boycott Rush Limbaugh, Faux News, and other media outlets that promote the inflammatory rhetoric that caused today's shooting and the murder of Dr. Tiller. More importantly, we should start boycotting their advertisers. Remember, people opposed to this kind of bigotry are perfectly reasonable in using our First Amendment rights to fight back.

  2. Ban handguns?

    Don't Annie Oakley-on-the-Hudson, NY Sen. Kristin Gillibrand and her band of followers and supporters.

    Gillibrand has a 100% perfect ranking from the NRA. Yet, NY Sen. Charles Schumer wants her elected to office in 2010. So does Obama.

  4. Part of me wishes that shooter would be sent to Gitmo without a trial and waterboarded! He's a terrorist, plain and simple. An "enemy combatant." Only real difference is he was lucky enough to be white, Christian and arrested on U.S. soil. Otherwise, he'd already be headed to Cuba.

  6. "Here Here" on the accountability of corporate sponsors. We should challenge their corporate charters.... have their charters revoked.

  8. Ban private gun ownership? ---it isn't going to happen. The NRA lobby is too powerful and big. Besides, as long as the Constitution makes owning guns legal, it can't happen. The problem is that the Constitution was written at a time when a majority of citizens hunted for some of their food. No one imagined assault rifles or handguns would be used for murder.

    I frankly cannot stomach listening to Fox or Limbaugh, so I have no idea who sponsors them, but I will be glad to boycott the sponsors if I knew who they were. Anyone know of a list available online?

    According to a 2006 study on America's nonbelievers, it was determined that more and more people are rejecting religion in reaction to the Religious Right, so their methods are driving people away from religion rather than attracting them to it. You can find more on this study here:
