The Fruits from the Tree of the Cult of EMP Crazy

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 8:31 am by George Smith

I’ve written repeatedly that the Cult of EMP Crazy is notoriously manipulative.

It plays to the extremist crank, as if craziness and fractured ideas need to be encouraged and amplified in American society. It captivates fundamentalist religious zealots who welcome the end times because of the punishments they think will be meted out to everyone not on their “to-be-saved” lists.

In fact, if you’ve followed Cult of EMP Crazy videos and newspaper claims on this blog, you’ll have sensed the undercurrent.

The Paul Reveres, the proper followers of Jesus Christ, the survivalists and the stalwart GOP rump are kind of hoping for an electromagnetic pulse attack so they’re vindicated and the unbelievers are struck down in one blow. And they won’t share their stash of pemmican with such scum when civilization fails

Anyway, it also hypnotizes stupid white guys in baseball caps. Guys training to work in homeland security.

DD knows the next video is hard to endure.

Our Paul Revere in a Guinness cap waves around the book of William Forstchen. He has the script memorized although his delivery is stumbling. And then the good parts: Our enemies will pounce. Al Qaeda will get the EMP scud in a tub. The Russians will come out of Venezuela. The Chinese will come out of Panama.

Heck, the Chinese will storm out of the port of Los Angeles or the yards in Long Beach! He knows, he grew up on southern California. Boy, are there lots of Chinese people here.

And here are the grinning fundamentalists, Jack and Rexelle van Impe, their smiles revealing they’d be pretty tickled if 90 percent — all the heathen — were killed off after an electromagnetic pulse disaster.

Naturally, one expects exploitation from the Heritage Foundation and the GOP. It’s called inspiring the base.

Here National Geographic gets into the game, massaging its ratings for the last couple of weeks, hoping to pick up the viewers who fall into the baseball cap man demographic.

Coming from what used to be regarded as an august source, it’s more mainstreaming of extremism in 2010 America.

    “Nucular.” Makes it hard for me even to give the snert his (sub) 15 minutes of stage time.

    IN 1962 July our ship observed the Starfish Prime nuclear shot over the Pacific Ocean. We were “EMP’ed” we heard it go by on it way to Hawaii and it caused problems in Hawaii July 1962 —
    look it up if you don’t believe it……

    Say Hallelujah and read Ezekiel 38 and 39 in the Holy Bible…

    Yes, everyone knows the Holy Bible explains it. I’m flattered you dropped by to prove my points. Thank you!
