Hey, Klinghoffer: This Is Your Moment!

This is a glorious, golden moment for 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).

And it’s especially perfect for David Klinghoffer, the Discoveroids’ journalistic slasher, upon whom they have bestowed the exalted title of “senior fellow” — i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist. Whenever anything goes wrong in the world, the Discoveroids routinely blame it on Darwin — and those journalistic attack jobs are usually perpetrated by Klinghoffer.

Consider his work product, or as we put it, his creationist oeuvre: he has previously 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, and most recently the practice of euthanasia.

The one horror headline Klinghoffer didn’t blame on the theory of evolution was the Colorado theater shootings by James Holmes, and that lapse was probably because we openly dared him to blame Darwin. We even posted about that a second time: Come on, Klinghoffer, You Can Do It! But he didn’t come through.

Now, however, the opportunity for evolution and Darwin-bashing is simply too great. Klinghoffer and the Discoveroids cannot resist blaming yesterday’s elementary school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut on Charles Darwin.

So we’ve been waiting. It won’t be long. While everyone else is reacting with sorrow and horror, the Discoveroids are thrilled by this new opportunity to attack science, reason, and of course Darwin. They don’t even need a “hook” that will, however tenuously, connect the shooter to Darwin’s theory. Mere chronology is sufficient — that is, “First Darwin, now this!”

Typical of that idiotic technique is something Mike Huckabee said on TV yesterday, while the news was still breaking. Here’s a video: This is because we’ve taken God out of the schools. But Huckabee just an Arkansas preacher with a preacher’s agenda.

You’re much more than that, David. Not only are you smarter than Huckabee, but you have a far bigger agenda — you and your Discoveroid comrades are the Enemies of the Enlightenment.

Come on, David! Like the dung beetle rejoices when a fresh load of manure drops down as if from heaven, so too do the Discoveroids rejoice when horror occurs. Well, David, what are you waiting for? This is what you were born to do. This is what you love to do. This is what they pay you to do. So do it!

  1. Everyone should know that Huckabee’s god(s) didn’t give
    a hoot about those kids…or any other kids.

    But I am sure that many will comfort themselves and love ones
    by stating that these kids are now in heaven.

    Huckabee is saying that if only the dead shooter had feared
    eternal punishment this would never of happened.

    I am sure Huckabee never criticizes his god(s) for being
    credited with the biggest mass murder ever.

    I am also sure that he would never credit the mostly non
    religious Japanese for having a much less murder rate than
    this supposedly Xian nation. The evidence does not point to
    religion preventing murder. Never in the history of man.

  2. From 2009:
    Maurice Clemmons, the 37-year-old Tacoma man being sought for questioning in the killing this morning of four Lakewood police officers, has a long criminal record punctuated by violence, erratic behavior and concerns about his mental health.

    9 (now 12) years ago, then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee granted clemency to Clemmons, commuting his lengthy prison sentence over the protests of prosecutors.

  3. One thing that the xtian right/creationist lot do is warp everything. Science, history, logic, — everything is destroyed by their hogwash.

    The whole “kicked god out of schools” s*** is wrong historically: In 1962 there were several states the had teacher-lead prayer already banned. It had been an ongoing issue since the first wave of Catholic immigrants in the early 19th c. The problems were resolved in many urban schools by simply eliminating religious horse**** altogether.

    The supreme court decisions in 62 and 63 merely solidified and nationalized the trends that the country as a whole were going toward anyway.

    Legally wrong: Kids are allowed to pray in school. They are allowed to pray all day if they so desire. The teacher may not lead the students in a collective prayer. That’s it.

    Logically wrong: A 1963 SCOTUS decision to disallow teacher-lead school prayer did not in any way, shape or form contribute to the tragedy that occurred in CT yesterday. Prayers do not prevent shootings, not praying does not cause them. This is superstitious thinking — it really should not be tolerated.

  4. I’d say the fact that the priest whose job it was to inform the parents of the slain said that this wasn’t god’s plan is probably going to warrant a response from them.

    You’re probabaly right. However it will probably just be the usual Catholic bashing that the evangelicals like to dish out. I can see it already ‘well obviously the problem has gotten so bad that even a supposed christian leader is denying gods plan. Of course we’ve suspected for a long time that the catholics are in league with the devil.’ It will be interesting to see how far they can twist logic on this. Such a sad event.

  6. Yes we ‘ve taken God out of schools, but apparently we still have lots of guns and ammo. One can only hope one of the. Newton parents slaps the
    self righteous look off Hucksters mug, preferably with a wet 50 lb sockeye.
