You have to listen to Rick Wiles pontificating on the death of Scalia. It’s free-form stream of consciousness in which he connects the dots on his own delusions to conclude that Obama sacrificed Scalia in a
It starts with two guys talking to each other. One mentions the coincidence that Scalia died on 13 February, which is the beginning date of the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia; Wiles acts as if he’s never heard of this before, but the details he spins out tell me he was preparing this argument before hand.
So what is Lupercalia? According to the one guy, they do a “bunch of crazy stuff with women, it’s a fertility festival” and it celebrates the birth of the Roman empire. To which Wiles replies that 13 February is the
44th day of 2016, and Obama is the 44th president. It’s a numerology argument. That’s bizarre enough, but the next thing he says dislocates my irony bone.
These people are truly into numerology. It’s their religion.
Then it’s just a solid stream of nonsense.
There’s always human sacrifice involved. Where’s “there”? What other human sacrifices do you know about?
Washington DC is full of pagan Roman sculptures. No, not really, but it does exhibit a lot of neoclassical architecture, for historical reasons.
The birth of the Roman system, the birth of fascism, was on the 13th. So they killed a justice. No, the traditional date for the founding of Rome was 21 April 753BCE. It was not associated with fascism. The symbol of the fasces was used by Romans for the authority of the magistrates who represented the people. It’s an error to equate an ancient Roman symbol for a more modern form of dictatorship. Murdering judges was also not part of the Roman festival — and in fact, judges were represented by the fasces — so that “so” that implies this death was a natural conclusion of his garbled historical lesson was BS.
He then concludes that the assassins were sending a message,
Don’t mess with us. We can murder a justice and get away with it.…The regime murdered a justice. Except he has no evidence to think that, Scalia was being coddled in a luxurious resort that caters to the wealthy elite, and if murdering obstacles to Obama was an easy thing, shouldn’t there have been more of a bloodbath in Congress?
Also, please note, we godless secular humanists and other such atheist scum don’t believe in Lucifer, numerology, or human sacrifice. If you really want to pin a crime on us, you’re going to have to invent plausible secular motives.
