Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has shared some of his thoughts with New York magazine. He confessed that he only reads the Wall Street Journal (home of right-wing editorials) and the Washington Times (second-rate right-wing paper). He sometimes listens to NPR, but mostly listens to talk radio. Justice Scalia, one of the most powerful people in the country, also believes that Satan is real. He thinks all Catholics and most Americans share that belief.
From the interview:
Have you seen evidence of the Devil lately?
You know, it is curious. In the Gospels, the Devil is doing all sorts of things. He’s making pigs run off cliffs, he’s possessing people and whatnot. And that doesn’t happen very much anymore.
It’s because he’s smart.
So what’s he doing now?
What he’s doing now is getting people not to believe in him or in God. He’s much more successful that way.
Rep. Michelle Bachmann, a member of the majority party in the House of Representatives, thinks that Obama’s support for some of the Syrian rebels is evidence that the world will be ending soon:
“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann continued. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.”
She is also concerned about a possible terrorist attack on the Mall of America, because of all the Somali refugees who are now living in Minnesota, and we know what happened at that mall in Kenya. She carefully explains that the best explanation for the Kenya massacre is the Islamic doctrine that all non-believers should be killed.
Meanwhile, a Tea Party supporter named Earl Conlon is trying to organize a bunch of truck drivers to invade Washington on October 11th. They’re planning to clog the Beltway, but their main purpose is to have a number of politicians arrested. Their justification is that Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, et al. have violated the Constitution and committed treason. Impeachment isn’t good enough:
“We want these people arrested, and we’re coming in with the grand jury to do it,” he said. “We are going to ask the law enforcement to uphold their constitutional oath and make these arrests. If they refuse to do it, by the power of the people of the United States and the people’s grand jury, they don’t want to do it, we will. … We the people will find a way.”
Conlon has been busy discussing his plans on the “Tea Party Command Center” message board. A partial transcript of the discussion:
Burgo: I believe a lot of the law enforcement feels much like we do and if Obama should give the word to “strike,” they would be striking themselves! This would “literally” be The Straw That Broke The Camels Back … For if they should strike a Bread & Butter Patriot, civility is no longer on the table and an ALL OUT REVOLUTION IS.
Betty Allen: This is true and I believe this is just what OB wants. Next will be marital [sic] law. This I believe is what he has been wanting and waiting for all along. But it has to be done.
Earl Conlon: THINK OF IT LIKE THIS: if Obastard declares Marshal [sic] Law. we will then Know WHO and where they are.. and then we will have a clear knowledge of who supports them and WHO TO SHOOT.
Betty Allen: Amen.
