More Leftist Thuggery - Minds are Conned


Things are getting out of control, and I think that I at least in part understand why-

I call it my "conned" theory.

When an individual falls prey to a confidence, or "con" job, and loses a sum of money, it is fairly common for the victim to tell no one about the event. Often enough, even the police are not contacted about the theft.

This of course makes some sense. We all like to think of ourselves as immune to being fooled. We will of course admit to be pranked by a family member, friend, or coworker, but to let people know that we have been swindled out of our money is a very hard thing to do. It is a humiliating experience.

The way that I see it is this - If you would be reluctant to admit to others that you have been tricked out of, say $1,000, would you be willing to admit, not only to others, but yourself, that you have been tricked into being unable to think rationally?

I hold that a great many of these Leftist thugs who verbally attack conservatives, throw urine and fecal matter, and use objects to injure them are doing so in an effort to convince themselves that they have not been lied to. I would be willing to bet that a good portion of these thugs have attended college. If they were not brainwashed by Leftist dogma in primary school (And many have) the deed was done in the Halls of Academia. They spent years of their life there, applied themselves, and spent or borrowed  money to be fed a load of garbage.

When the leave college, and start to get that nagging feeling that they have been conned out of their own intellect, they react not by reconsidering their positions, but by lashing out at those who have either maintained their wits or swung back to reclaim them.

We have all seen the same things with those we know who have fallen into rabid Christian Fundamentalism. All of a sudden, these individuals are, apparently believing that the Bible just got start being read recently, running around teaching Theology to all of the Catholic, Methodist, Orthodox, etc. people whom they know and telling them that, if they do not immediately subscribe to their (Quite modernized) version of Christianity, they will miss out on the Rapture, the doctrine of which was invented less than two hundred years ago.

Like the Fundamentalist pastors in their local Churches, the Imam-like professors in colleges do not teach but instead concentrate on breaking down a person's will to think for themselves in any possible manner. They publicly mock anyone who dares to utter a peep in protest, thus making the job of feeding the masses their Leftist opiates all the easier. Each Pastor, Imam, or Professor becomes like a Pope, Ecumenical Council of the Church, or national body of a mainline Protestant Church.

The individual, being lead astray by heretical teachings such as "health and wealth" in a "Christian" Church, or by a political doctrine that has failed in more cases than I have when trying to become a Major League Baseball player, is locked into what is being dished out by the leader.

This what leads so many of these thugs to lash out as they do. Being fully brainwashed, yet seeing reminders all around them that what they have accepted is hogwash, they engage in acts of violence and cruelty to suppress those persistent annoying facts that tell them that they have been conned.

"Well, I must believe this stuff. Why else would I be exerting such an effort?"


  1. /Howdy, Hot Gates. Saw this bit on the net. / Catholics Did NOT Invent the Rapture !

    Many assert that the "rapture" promoted by evangelicals was first taught, at least seminally, by a Jesuit Catholic priest named Francisco Ribera in his 16th century commentary on the book of Revelation.
    To see what is claimed, Google "Francisco Ribera taught a rapture 45 days before the end of Antichrist's future reign." (Oddly, many claimants are anti-Catholic and merely use Ribera in order to "find" much earlier support for their rapture which actually isn't found in any official Christian theology or organized church before 1830!)
    After seeing this claim repeated endlessly without even one sentence from Ribera offered as proof, one widely known church historian decided to go over every page in Ribera's 640-page work published in Latin in 1593.
    After laboriously searching for the Latin equivalent of "45 days" ("quadraginta quinque dies"), "rapture" ("raptu," "raptio," "rapiemur," etc.) and other related expressions, the same scholar revealed that he couldn't find anything in Ribera's work even remotely resembling a prior rapture! (Since the same scholar plans to publish his complete findings, I won't disclose his name.)
    Are you curious about the real beginnings of this evangelical belief (a.k.a. the "pre-tribulation rapture") merchandised by Darby, Scofield, Lindsey, Falwell, LaHaye, Ice, Van Impe, Hagee and many others?
    Google "The Unoriginal John Darby," "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," "X-Raying Margaret," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "Walvoord Melts Ice," "Thomas Ice (Bloopers)," "Wily Jeffrey," "Deceiving and Being Deceived" by D.M., "The Real Manuel Lacunza," "Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism," "Pretrib Rapture Politics," "Pretrib Hypocrisy," "Famous Rapture Watchers," and "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty" - most of these by the author of the 300-page nonfiction book "The Rapture Plot," the highly endorsed and most accurate documentation on the long hidden historical facts of the 182-year-old pre-tribulation rapture theory imported from Britain during the late 19th century.

    1. Thanks very much. I was aware of Darby and Margaret McDonald but not Irving. This subject needs a post, especially as readers can be directed to McPherson's book. The pre-mill, pre-trib rapture, despite the fact that it is the mother of all doctrinal inventions, is so central to Evangelical thought in the US that it has virtually and unfortunately displaced any other kind of thought.
