In this video of a Glenn Beck 9-12 Tea Party, one participant in response to a speaker describing the "Brainwashing" that goes on in our colleges loudly suggests that we Burn The Books!
A few seconds later she's asked whether she was serious and she says - "Yes! We should burn all those 'Brainwashing Books' - with all that Evolution Crap!"
Holy Sheep Shit!
And just to go one step deeper into the crazy, before this occurs the guy is loudly talking about the "Constitution Party" and suggests people "Google It".
Well I did. And this is what I found.
The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.
This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.
The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.
These people are Full-on Theocrats! They want us to go back to Burning Books. Denying fact and science simply because it differs from religious doctrine. What's next - gonna go out Burn a Witch at the Stake if she ways more than a duck? I mean seriously - WHAT. THE. FUCK!!
Rather than embrace knowledge, rather than embrace truth - and openly debate and argue for the greater truth - (which includes the fact that Creationism and Evolution are NOT Mutually exclusive) these people would rather remove knowledge Farenheit 451 Style. This shouldn't be happening in the 21st Century. It really shouldn't.
Update: But in all fairness there is the "possibiliy" that this woman could have simply been - A SPY FROM ACORN!!!
Stranger things have happened...
Ok, well - no they haven't in reality, but in the mind of a Wingnut - all things are possible at the same time. People can be pro-Obama and Pro-Tea Party Tax Revolt (right after Obama CUT TAXES WITH THE STIMULUS BILL) simultaneously. Amazing.
