After a spate of applying for some jobs I somehow ended up on several wingnut emails lists. As annoying as it is, that marketing method works, I open them from time to time, whenever I need a laugh, or a sob. What’s shocking isn’t the sheer magnitude of the lies, it’s how badly their own, sincere righties, are openly preyed on by shysters with the full cooperation and aide of the GOP establishment. It’s just one scam after another. Today the subject was “How will atheists explain THIS!?”
That link goes to a page that screams in large red letters:
Link— Did our Creator “encode” a cancer cure on the 859th page of an ancient Bible?
Oncologists stunned! “Untreatable” late-stage cancers disappear in weeks… ZERO painful side effects… [Verified by independent research from the University of Southern California, Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Chicago, and University of South Florida]
Answer, no the Creator did not. Although if you believe in a personal God as taught in thousands of churches in 2014, the Creator did indeed intentionally encode the ability for once perfectly healthy people to get cancer in millions of base pairs throughout the human genome. Why condemn billions of men, women, and children to a slow, terrifying and excruciating death? It’s punishment meted out to the whole human race! Because a Neolithic lady chose do something wrong thousands of years ago — specifically she chose more knowledge, which tells you a lot about the right-wing mindset toward women and people in general right there. A lady who, by definition, was so ignorant and/or mentally challenged when she made that choice that she could not have possibly been capable of distinguishing right from wrong …
Doesn’t take an atheist to explain this, a fictionalized mafia thug in a semi-factual casino could do it, it’s the dollars, always fuckin dollars. But here’s how this atheist explains it: complete disregard for decency in service of insatiable greed. As you can guess, it’s an roundabout audio file that hems and haws on its way to the obligatory plea for money to buy a miracle late-stage cancer cure “When all other hope is lost”. I guess we get used to the endless, repugnant ways the right wages class warfare, how they never stop robbing the poor and middle class of every last penny to payoff the rich.
Or rather we think we do. The depths of depravity can always surprise even the seasoned cynic.
They’re shamelessly trying to rip off terminal cancer patients, while also working elsewhere to deny those same patients and everyone else the healthcare that might actually save them, or at least keep the worst of the agony at bay while they die. From the same assholes who scold the long-term unemployed about the dignity of honest work.
What a horrible scam the conservative movement is, rotten from head-to-toe, to perpetrate this and so many other cons on the most desperate and vulnerable and most loyal members of their own caucus. These are truly revolting people. Never forget:, both sides “don’t do it,” the modern hard-right is in a political and immoral class all by themselves.
