Father of Electromagnetic Pulse Doom Fiction & Jim Bakker

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism, WhiteManistan at 2:42 pm by George Smith

William Forstchen, the father of electromagnetic pulse doom romance fiction on Amazon, here on Jim Bakker (yes, that Jim Bakker) predicting death for 90 percent of American population during the trials of purification after an Iranian/North Korean attack.

The only thing that will save you — the you being the old white paranoid people in the studio audience — will be an old flivver, a water filter, and the electric generator whatsis he taps on. Plus, one the power fails and society breaks down, all the criminal drug addicts will raid your retirement homes for your medications and pills. Really!

Remember, just last month, God will strike America down with electromagnetic pulse because — the gays and their marriage and abortionists.

All these people are delusional Christian right wing extremists, a big part of the Republican Party.

Ted Cruz, Republican Presidential hopeful (from USA Today— no link) :

If this deal goes through, we know to an absolute certainty people will die. Americans will die, Israelis will die, Europeans will die. If Iran gets a nuclear weapon, the single greatest risk is they would put it on a ship anywhere in the Atlantic and they would set off what’s called an EMP, an electromagnetic pulse. It would take down the electrical grid on the entire Eastern seaboard, and kill tens of millions of Americans.

Electromagnetic pulse crazies and their cult of doom — from the amazing archives.

    Again, for perspective, these people are more concerned over not having a working hair dryer or cable television, not the many delicious varieties of radioactive fallout from a nuclear blast.

    Saw a funny and very brief sketch on *Key and Peele* that makes this point, even with almost no dialogue spoken. A well-dressed man is sitting at a window seat in a nice restaurant. A woman brings him a cup of coffee on a saucer and sets it on the table. He nods and smiles, and she leaves. He reaches for the “diet” sweetener and shakes the packets, preparing to open them.

    Suddenly, in the distance, there is a bright flash, followed by a tremor, followed by screams. A mushroom cloud begins to develop near the horizon. The man puts the artifical sweetener back into the holder, grabs the sugar jar, and dumps the whole thing slowly into his cup.

    Part of the appeal is also rooted the apocalyptic end times stories that involve the return of the LORD in battle against the anti-Christ, the saving of the worthy and the eternal damnation of everyone else.

    They like to hear it again and again.

    It also explains all the horrid books unleashed by Amazon’s CreateSpace, linked above.

    Of course, all the rest of us are gonna die and that’s a good thing because the worthy were warned, were of good heart and prepared.
