Hanging by a thread, from the lunatic fringe.

We have CNS News editor-in-chief Terry Jeffrey and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, having a chat about this net neutrality business. Like most of the altwhatthefuckever, they are thrilled by the rollback. Their little discussion runs off onto quite the side road…

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Jeffrey joined host and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins to discuss why he believed rolling back net neutrality rules was a good decision.  Like many of his right-wing counterparts, Jeffrey argued that net neutrality never really existed because tech giants like Facebook and Twitter have suppressed conservative voices. He went on to draw out an analogy to self-driving cars.

Okay, all of you fucking idiots out there – net neutrality is not about your personal sense of persecution. People will still be able to shun you. They’ll still be able to ban you. That would be because no one likes you. Go eat worms.

“This may seem an odd comparison, but I think it’s a real one, that we’re moving, Tony, toward automated cars, for example. And in the regulatory world, there’s the debate over how they’re going to regulate these automated vehicles. But you can imagine the control over our lives the government would have if they could remotely control our vehicles, which they may in fact someday be able to do and I think we have to think about that,” Jeffrey said.

“It doesn’t get discussed a lot but it’s going to happen,” Jeffrey said. “Down the road at some point automobiles are going to be automated and someone is going to be in control of the infrastructure that directs how those automobiles move.”

Jeffrey then painted a scenario where the government takes control of self-driving cars to prevent anti-choice activists from being able to transport themselves to protests.

“Imagine that the government is doing something outrageous like legalizing the killing of unborn babies and a lot of people want to go down to the Washington Mall one day a year and make it known they’re sticking up to the right for life, but the only way they can get through to that Mall is by getting on a transportation system that’s controlled by the government,” Jeffrey said.

Last time I looked, Roe v. Wade was still the law of the land, which means abortion is legal. Supposedly. As for the rest of your moronic scenario, Mr. Jeffrey, what is it we have now? There’s no governmental oversight of roads; there’s no licensing system for driving; there’s no speed limit; there are no regulations in place concerning automobiles; no one regulates trains, planes, subways, or traffic, and so on, right? Right? Oh, wait. Yes, there’s a fucktonne of regulation in regard to transport, that’s why transportation has its very own department in the government! Golly, guess you learn something new every day, don’t ya, fellas? So far, transportation systems don’t seem to have interfered with you nosy, judgmental assholes in the least.  Pity.

And then we have self-styled “prophet” Sundar Selvaraj, who is still on Jim Bakker’s show, who has come up with quite the tidbit:

Selvaraj recounted how, a few years ago, “the Lord Jesus appeared to me about the False Prophet who is mentioned in Revelation, chapter 13 and then very simply and very clearly he said, ‘The present Pope Francis is the prophesied False Prophet.’ And then he went on explaining to me the many things the false prophet will do, and then later on, I did some research and I found that whatever the Lord Jesus told me what what exactly Pope Francis has already begun to do.”

Selvaraj said that on the day that Pope Francis met with Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli president Shimon Peres in 2014, “a meteor flew very close by earth and NASA nicknamed the meteor ‘The Beast.’ So that confirmed what the Lord revealed, that the False Prophet—the beast that is mentioned in Revelation 13—is the Pope.”

So, NASA has confirmed Selvaraj, who confirms Jehovah, who confirms that Pope Francis will lead the world into worship of the antichrist, if that lazy dude ever shows up. If Lance Wallnau hears about this, it just might wreck his little crush on Steve Bannon.

    It’s ridiculous. The only regulations that we’re asking for is stuff that we have imposed on the post office for a long time. Applying the “common carrier” rules was exactly the right thing to do.

    skydaddy don’t want no stinking internets where a girl or a boy might learn something and run far and fast away from the christofascists

    Wait, what?!

    I follow NASA news and asteroid news reasonably closely I don’t recall that -- btw. a meteor by definition is inside Earth’s atmosphere not passing near Earth so I presume he meant comet or asteroid.

    (Checks google) Hmm ..okay yeah there was one :

    This weekend, an asteroid more than 10 times larger* will sweep silently past Earth, at a safe distance. Astronomers are taking special note of this object because they discovered it only two months ago. They’ve nicknamed it the Beast. It’s a reminder that we live in a cosmic shooting gallery, a solar system where unknown asteroid behemoths still glide unseen. This new asteroid, formally known as 2014 HQ124, measures about 1,067 feet (325 meters) in diameter. It will be 3.3 times the moon’s distance away from Earth at its closest approach on Sunday, June 8, 2014, when it’ll be moving at slightly more than 14 kilometers per second.

    * Than the meteor that hit Chelyabinsk -- ed.

    Google also confirms Peres and Abbas met Pope Francis on that day too -- planting an olive tree and trying to encourage peace negotiations.

    So I guess those facts are right(~ish) but saying they confirm the Pope is teh antichrist? Er, nope I really don’t think so or see any actual connection at all here. Why the Pope rather than anyone else anyhow?

    There are plenty of other asteroids (& comets and ex-comets,; Near Earth Objects generally) that have come as close or closer and that are larger :


    For 2014 “micro” asteroid 2014 LY21 came closest to Earth at 47,900 km away (& closer still -- remotely possibly even impacting on our Moon!) at and 2014 DX110 was the largest at about 30 metres approx. So while notable~ish the “Beast” wasn’t really that special as far as NEO’s go. A case of what’s a (nick) name I guess.

    Again, how one of many NEOs passing near our planet is proof of anybody being an antichrist -unless they weresomehow responsible for it which our current tech level rules out -- is beyond me.

    Oh & what does the Bible say about astrology anyway?

    Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. Isaiah 47:13-14
    Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. Jeremiah 10:2

    I will cut off … them that worship the host of heaven. Zephaniah 1:4-5

    Plus typically contradictorily :

    And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars. (Jesus) Luke 21:25

    So, erm, by this I ‘spose we can determine that Jesus was a heathen cut off from the “host of heaven” or something?

    I’m sure at some point the loss of net neutrality will cause problems for a big bandwidth user like the FRC, and Perkins will blame it on the Democrats.
