Liberals, Religious Right Cursing NSA in Orgiastic Ritual

There’s a weird Top Sekrit location where the left, the middle, the conservatives, and the absolute raving bonkerites meet, dropping their armor and  laying aside all their other conflicts. Lately the meal served at this swingers club is a boiling stew of stupid cooked up by the NSA which has managed unite almost every group from the far right religious fringe to the tree hugging vegans on the left.

Case in point, the video below from Former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt of the ‘Pray In Jesus Name’ website  (and truly, after exploring his website, I’m really glad he’s no longer a military chaplain!):

There is a spirit of  secrecy that is really just lawbreaking in its lawlessness, and they’re doing this all behind the scenes and they’ll send out a public statement, ‘Oh we don’t have a domestic spying program.’ But they voted to fund a domestic spying program, they’re just calling it something else. And we’re exposing that, and really it has its roots in a Satanic evil spirit of violation, of tyranny really…

And then “Dr Chaps” goes on to quote some scripture and pray away the demon of tyranny who is

using the White House occupant, that demonic spirit that is oppressing us…Father, we hope that you will help the president repent, repent of this violation, of his defense now of violating our Fourth Amendment rights.

So on behalf of Americans everywhere: All races, colors and creeds, of all sexualities, all income levels and classes, let us now all come together and send out a rousing thank you to the NSA for uniting us against their snooping policies. Meanwhile, check our Dr Chaps in all his NSA demon bustin’ glory:

Thanks, Lisa.

I’m confused. People usually use terms like “orgiastic rituals” pejoratively. Are you saying that people should not be upset about the NSA? That doesn’t sound like you as I see you, though.

BTW, Samantha’s nosy neighbor was not an early version of the NSA. Yes, she spied, but only on one household (that we know of–then again, I did not watch the show, so I could be wrong.) Also, she had observed suspicious behavior, so you could say she had reasonable cause for spying. Finally, and most significantly, though, she was not part of federal, state or local government and therefore the Constitution of the United States did not pertain to her. (I know. Too literal. That be me, though.)

Who needs ritual and Magic when we have a perfectly evil Scientific misuse of technology.
Why mention Orgiastic Ritual unless the goal is to make people feel guilty about sex?
All sex has to do with this is possible blackmail by the NSA involving stuff they find out about our sex life on the net.
I got real doubts the NSA is all wearing Pope Penis hats and chanting around a picture of Rush Limbaugh.

Wait I know whats going on the Right wants to turn the Left off the NSA scandal by jumping on and using it to fuel another crusade.

I’m uncomfortable with the subtextual insinuation here that strident objections to illegal and unconstitutional NSA surveillance of citizens lacking any cause or suspicion are in any way linked to crazy religious fundamentalism. The real crazies in this tale are Obama and his coterie of criminal spooks.

This isn’t just about the NSA, or Satan for that matter (who was an angel once, if I recall correctly.)

In my mind it is about the Net and about the unrest that Occupy/Wikileaks/ArabSpring unleashed. It is about controlling those socially estranged forces and destroying the ability to maintain the Net as an open network. We are all a part of that. And, with the tragic embrace of corporate-sponsored ecocide and endless war by Obama it may very well become a fight for our cultural heritages and even our lives.

The fact that the insane right is trying to co-opt this shows just how craven they are, or as someone else posted above, how they are attempting to confuse the main issue.

Please don’t help them!

Orgiastic rituals were, back in the good old days, were a way for folks to perform, well, rituals, nothing pejorative about the term, IMO. And yes, clearly people are upset about NSA, from left, the right and the middle–and it’s kinda cool to see that waaaay out rights like Dr Chaps are expressing the same outrage (though in his own very um, unique syntax) as those who get their news from NPR and NBC.

No, I think that th far fringey right and the middle right and the middle left and left left are all disgusted and concerned about the NSA and what it means to their own group, all of them perceiving themselves as as The Other, The Outsider belief system that The Man is gonna go after.

Lucifer was a fallen angel, Lightbearer. Compare/contrast to Prometheus. Satan comes form the Hebrew for opposition. They are two different concepts that were alter united.

I would refer you to Book IV of Paradise Lost. That was my allusion, not that it matters, for no one reads Milton anymore.

Srsly? Everyone is simply selfish, in your opinion? In my opinion, that’s an extremely stupid opinion.

The wacko birds on the lunatic extreme right are only afraid because we’re in charge right now. If a full blown teabagger sociopath republiturd was running the show these moronic inbred sewerslugs would be cheering the NSA on as if God himself were running the programs.

Focusing on the Bible thumping segment of the right may not be the most revealing way to examine rightist inclinations regarding what the NSA does. Instead it seems to me the uber libertarian segment, Goldwater Republicans, might better illustrate how the right is conflicted dealing with the NSA controversy.

I think there would be two conflicting instincts in play. Goldwater libertarianism draws on individualistically selfish motives, an ideology which necessarily restricts the government’s ability or interest in fostering a stable, mostly level playing field for society at large. That is, moderately regulatory gov’t is seem placing unacceptable markers around what individuals can selfishly do in their own interest. OTOH the right’s militaristic, interventionist bent has to be fed somehow, and it implicitly needs NSA-like activities in order to function. Nowadays that’s more in play than ever before.

How the right sorts this out will be interesting to watch. Will they really fight among themselves for the long term? Dunno. I don’t see the schism, if it develops, as having to do with the Evangelicals.

It seems to me any right wing overlap with progressive pressure against the NSA is more coincidental than indicative of shared values.

“We are in charge”? So you voluntarily self identify with the administration that is stripping away wholesale the human and constitutional rights of its own citizens in wholly unprecedented ways? Identify with an administration that has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all previous administrations combined?

Is that the “we” you’re talking about? If so, I respectfully ask that you piss off. OK?
