Everyone knows by now about the news from Colorado: At least 12 dead, 50 injured in Colorado theater shooting.
Whenever there’s a disaster in the headlines, there’s one thing of which we can be certain — it will be blamed on Darwin by the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s creationist public relations and lobbying operation, the Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).
In case you doubt that, here’s a bit of Discoveroid history: David Klinghoffer (the Discoveroids’ journalistic slasher) has linked Darwin to: Hitler, and communism, and Stalin, and the Columbine shootings, and Charles Manson, and Holocaust Museum shooter, James von Brunn, and the Ft. Hood Massacre, and Mao Tse-tung, and Dr. Josef Mengele, and James Lee, the Discovery Channel Terrorist.
Aside from Klinghoffer’s hatchet-jobs, there was a post by John West about Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik, which prompted us to write Breivik a “Social Darwinist”. They once blamed a young man’s suicide on Darwin (see Feasting on Death). They’ve even suggested that the American Civil War Was Darwin’s Fault.
James Holmes, the alleged Colorado shooter, had been a med student. It’s “obvious” that he must have been a Darwinist. Surely, it’s not too difficult for the Discoveroids to crank up their propaganda machine and make the most of the situation. This is what they do best, so what are they waiting for?
