View Full Version : Prepare yourselves for the Westboro Baptist reaction.

I found this on another website, about another subject, quoted nearly verbatim.


Person X is like a Westboro Baptist, but instead of "God says so", he says "The CBC says so". That way he doesn't have to think for himself. He can just rely on other people thinking for him. You can call them Prophets or experts and he can call them Scientists or whatever, so long as he can get back to raging and screaming rather than actually expend any mental or intellectual effort, it is All Good.


The way I see this applying to us, is the recent most unfortunate and outrageous incident will be accompanied with the fallout we are all too familiar with.

The Person X will have been listening to a fiery relentless broadcast and they will be filled with self righteous indignation and gut wrenching rage at you know what and you know who.

They won't have to think, and consequently won't think, but will be filled with anger, bluster and jingoism towards you know who and you know what.

Try to slow them down and make them think instead of react.

Good luck.

I'm kind of confused.

I don't care for the activities of the Westboro Baptist lot - but are you insinuating that knee jerk, CBC addicts incapable of critical thought who only partake in group think are going to come out all gun owners over the recent shooting?

Not come out, but come at.
