Drive those nails into Jesus of America

Push it up, folks. Wealthiness is next to Godliness, that’s what Jesus taught.

The paradox with American Jesus, Paul Ryan, and his crap stories about what the poor need, the dignity of work and their culture of dependency, is that no matter how often he’s exposed as a charlatan, called out as a Flim Flam Man, compelled to issue a public apology for fabrication or insulting African Americans for citing a notorious racist as an expert on American society, nothing changes.

Six months will pass and Ryan always emerges for another round, unharmed and totally intact.

And that’s because WhiteManistan loves his story-telling about poverty as a morality tale, one in which they’re on the winning side.

In WhiteManistan, God’s favorite tribe lives in harmony, working hard, justly rewarded for its purity of essence.

And the poor are such because they are sinful, lack morals and have made all the wrong decisions in life. To help only makes them worse. What they need is a good whipping, to be administered by the taking away of food and health care, which will certainly make them understand proper values and that nothing in life is free.

Plus, they’re the wrong color, live in the inner city and, as Ted Nugent regularly put its, are bloodsuckers leaching off the system, tearing the place down.

And that’s all there is to it.

Even if Walter Cronkite were alive today and declared Jesus of America to be just the opposite, a Pharisee, on the evening news it wouldn’t make a lick of difference. And that’s because WhiteManistan’s identity is bound up in its regular judgments of others as inferior and wicked.

Diseased as this is, it’s part of national character of the United States, ideologically and spiritually.

Today, the New York Times’ Tim Egan spends a Sunday opinion driving nails into American Jesus, literally crucifying Ryan on his own heritage.


But you can’t help noticing the deep historic irony that finds a Tea Party favorite and descendant of famine Irish using the same language that English Tories used to justify indifference to an epic tragedy ….

In 2012, Mitt Romney, made the Tory case with his infamous remark that 47 percent of Americans are moochers, “dependent upon government.” Part of that dependence, he said, extended to people “who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.” Food — the gall!

You can’t make these kinds of heartless remarks unless you think the poor deserve their fate …

Where have I heard that before? Ah, yes — 19th-century England. The Irish national character, Trevelyan confided to a fellow aristocrat, was “defective.”

Egan goes onto add you never hear WhiteManistan, in his column — Republicans, cast any aspersion on the wealthy.

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, too. Incredible timing, that.

Jesus of America says don’t feed the poor! They are just too lazy, they’ll never work at all!

Republican Jesus! Hey, amen!
