What if an Anti-American Cult Had a Convention?

Have you ever wondered what it might look like if a cult that enabled death and destruction and chaos and anarchy had its own national convention?  I have.

Preceding that convention, we might already presumably know something about that cult, as well as its goals and objectives, since cults exist to spur larger and more oppressive versions of themselves that usurp power and mandate allegiance.  They can't very well do this under a bushel basket.  They have to go public in order to recruit enough gullible and warped individuals to swell the ranks.

If there were such a cult, we might foresee that it would be made up of narrow-minded, intolerant, hate-filled people who reject the dignity of human life and self-determination.  They would so resent the individualism and freedom of other segments of society as to believe that their superiority, and that of their vision, entitles them to do anything, and take anything, they wish.  I imagine that such people, driven by a bizarre lack of self-awareness, and an equally impressive degree of selfishness and narcissism, would not only condone the death of others, but capitalize on death as a tool to further their agenda of control and oppression.  After all, the rationalization goes, the exploited are dead.  What do they care?  And what is death but a practical response to an inconvenient obstacle to primacy?

If such a cult had its own convention, its members might prominently reward those who had committed the most damage.  In the event that members had died doing damage, their family members would make worthy stand-ins.  They could proudly tell lies about their ideological enemies, the ones whose deaths they threaten and chant about, while flaunting their fake victimhood for all their fellow believers.  What a heartwarming moment that would be.

If there were such a convention, perhaps we could expect to see flags representative of regimes that soaked themselves in the blood of their own citizens and their enemies.  Maybe some nice Soviet flags, or Communist Chinese flags, or some Palestinian flags.  What a pretty spectacle that would be at a convention of supposedly American citizens who left American ideals behind decades ago in pursuit of domination, increasingly by any means necessary.  Of course, they get to arbitrarily decide what is "necessary" to achieve their objectives.  They really don't want to hear from the rest of us.  When it's time, they will tell us what flag we are permitted to fly, if we survive their plans for us.

At such a convention, we might expect that God and religion are so objectionable that they are booed and marginalized.  Why, they might even boo during the invocation at the outset of the convention, though why such people would have an invocation is beyond me.  Perhaps they await the blessing of the entity to whom Saul Alinsky, one of their patrons, dedicated his book.  Certainly that would make sense.  After all, such a cult would probably have officially removed the actual God from its party platform years ago.

Such a convention might prominently feature those who have not only broken the law, but are immensely proud of their lawlessness and how they have gained from it, along with their friends.  After all, what good is massive corruption if you can't share it with those you wish to keep from stabbing you in the back?  Soulless cults aren't known for their sincere camaraderie, you know.

These folks wouldn't admit to their crimes, of course, but would go out of their way to demonize those who believe that criminals should be treated like criminals.  Going to jail is bad for business, and once one goes, a lot of them could follow.  Therefore, it's best to make sure there is no "first one" heading to the slammer.  The answer is to condemn the law-abiding, smear them, and bring the weight of the cult down on their heads, so they know that it is better that they, or someone coming along after them, suffer in silence.

The members of such a cult would not only engage in their own mayhem, but embrace and protect other like-minded criminals.  After all, there are plenty of spoils to be shared if all of the murderers and thieves simply accept their fair share.  So the domestic cult would run interference for the foreign death cults.  The American cult members would lie about the foreign cultists' deeds and motivations, proclaiming that the foreign agents can't be believed when they openly and consistently profess that they are motivated by their own death cult, with rules contained in a book they treat the way their American allies treat Saul Alinsky's book.  Cults have to have their "bibles," after all.  Lord knows the real Bible doesn't help them out very much.

Perhaps, if there were such a convention, there would be anger, and resentment, and envy, and jealousy, and bitterness, and derision, and violence, since there isn't much sweetness and light in death cults.  Even their attempts at sweetness and light are patently false and condescending and obviously scripted and insincere.  Destroying the lives, fortunes, and opportunities of hundreds of millions of people, and consigning some of them to suffering and death, is a mean business.  For instance, you can't be a happy soul while you make health care so unaffordable and poor that people perish for lack of funds to get treatment.  You can't be a kind soul while fervently advocating the death of millions of unborn human beings based on the lie that they aren't real.

Death cults exist to extinguish happiness and kindness.  They exist to rule and crush their enemies until they win.

And if there were such a convention, we shouldn't expect to be truthfully told that any of the foregoing events were occurring.  After all, such cults are still able to admit to themselves what they are about, and that there are still a lot of people who haven't consented to be owned and ruled like subjects who can foresee where the cult is going and what is likely to happen before it gets there.

One thing we know about cults is that there were other cults like them before the most recent version.  Cults that use death and destruction and anarchy to achieve their ends are really nothing new.  What is new, however, is the seemingly growing number of Americans who are willing to empower the hierarchy of the cult to complete its mission.  In the end, the cult will treat them the same as it treats the rest of its enemies.  They will be just as expendable as those who resisted.  By then it will be too late.

Anyway, I used to wonder what it would look like if such a cult had a convention.  I don't anymore.
