Have you ever looked at the geyser of feculence that spews out of creationist filth factories and then wondered if there really were people mindless enough to accept their ravings as truth? Well, wonder no more. We’ve got one for you.
Today’s letter-to-the-editor appears in the Daily Herald of Columbia, Tennessee, which proudly declares itself the “Mule capital of the world,” where Mule Day is an annual celebration. The letter is titled Reader connects Hitler, Sanger and abortion.
Today’s writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, so we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Ron. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Let’s start with a little history. In the 1930’s Adolph Hitler in Europe and Margaret Sanger in America headed up social revolutions. Hitler and Sanger were students of Charles Darwin and his teaching of evolution.
After that spectacularly crazed beginning, Ron says:
Darwin’s book, “The Origin of Species,” had a subtitle that appealed to Hitler and Sanger, “Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life.” Hitler and Sanger followed the teaching of eugenics.
Flaming moron! Let’s keep reading:
Eugenics teaches that life is built on survival of the fittest, including that of humans.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s not what eugenics is. Amazingly, then Ron gets it right:
Eugenics is a social philosophy advocating the improvement of human genetic traits through reproductive practices, thus encouraging positive traits and preventing less desirable traits
Such compulsory practices are totally alien to Darwin’s writing, but that’s pretty much how the Spartans saw it. Ron continues:
The Nazis used eugenics to justify ridding Europe of undesirable races like the Gypsies, Slavs, and most memorable, the Jews.
No, moron! Eugenics was what they used to sterilize idiots like you. Nazi racial theories came from crackpots such as the one we wrote about here: Hey, Klinghoffer: How About Hitler & Gobineau?, and also from the writings of various holy men, like On the Jews and Their Lies, by Martin Luther.
The rest of Ron’s letter is about Sanger, abortion, and Planned Parenthood. We don’t care about that stuff, so this is where we’ll leave him — neck deep in his own drool.
Hey — mindless propaganda works! It’s tragic, but we need to be aware of it.
