Pauli at his blog Est Quod Est, gives us the latest installment of his The Mark Shea Chronicles:
It has been a while since I posted, so I thought “hey, why not see what good ol’ Mark Shea is up to?” I could post on his latest apology in which he eventually does at the end via a Latin sentence fragment (“So: mea maxima culpa.”). But I have to confess my own culpa that I stopped reading after his call to crush right wing Christians “without mercy”.
But really, this post on Facebook from yesterday is too good not to point out:
“As predicted, this one jackass is succeeding only in sparking a Panic du Jour from a subculture that loves lone jackasses like him because it gives them the chance to feel as though the Reign of Antichrist has dawned and they are martyrs. Sims needs to shut up or apply to Donald Trump as the Chair of Dems to Re-elect Trump in 2020.”
First off, Shea calls the Pro-life movement represented by people like Abby Johnson, Lila Rose and Matt Walsh a “subculture”. And one that is happy when a “lone jackass” (e.g., Dem. Rep. Brian Sims, whom Shea admits is awful) does something asinine so they have “the chance to feel as though…they are martyrs.”
But when you look at the remarks these people made, they are saying nothing of the sort. There is no language of martyrdom, apocalypse or anti-Christs. On the contrary, the tweets are pretty mundane: “let’s organize a pro-life rally”, “we will peacefully protest violence and bullying” and “my ticket is booked; see you there” are some of the responses from the pro-life leaders.
This Facebook post is an example of Mark Shea’s standard strawdogging of the Pro-life movement against which he seems to be a Martin Luther nailing up his grievances again and again. This time he may be a bit off, though, when he refers to Sims as a “lone jackass”. Just today we have another story about a feminist at UNC flipping out and attacking an abortion protester, punching him and shouting “This is not OK!”
That Daily Wire article provides a link to another article about an woman having her leg broken last month. That link, in turn, contains the video of Jordan Hunt, male, kicking a woman protesting abortion in Canada.
Oh, and here is another which I blogged last year by a university employee. This stuff happens all the time, and the attacks seem to be increasing. Certainly we have more reports of them than ever before. I’ve mentioned five here with very little effort.
Go here to read the rest. Always remember that for Leftists you are always the enemy. If they criticize one of their own it is usually, outside of their endless intramural power struggles, because they fear the actions or words of the fellow Leftist are helping the non-Leftist enemy. If this sounds to you like the way a paranoid cult would behave, congratulations! You are well on your way to understanding the contemporary Left!
