Hippies Love Genocide & I Don't Heart Commies

I answered a comment from MikalM on the post below (re: pretty boy mass murderer Che Guevara) by stating the obvious -- Hippies Love Genocide. He later added:

Yup. Just a few days ago I was reading an online commentary at Tribe.net, and some brain-dead bliss-bunny was whining about how humans are destroying Mother Earth, and how she wanted 90% of humanity to perish to save the planet. (Obviously she and her friends would be among the lucky tenth of survivors, although she didn't explain how they'd deal with all the dead bodies and the collapsed infrastructure of human civilization...) Last time I checked, 9/10ths of humanity is 5.4 billion people. The combined wars, genocides, plagues, famines, natural disasters, and other assorted die-offs of history amount to a small fraction of this number. It's funny -- people who will proclaim their "compassion" and "peacefulness" until they're blue in the face, will turn around and advocate a ten-digit omnicide that the worst mass-killers of history would have never dreamed of, nor desired. When I read that post and thought about the implications, even the usual Hitler/Stalin parallels didn't work any more. The first thought that came to my mind was the story "The Call of Cthulhu" by H.P. Lovecraft, where a cult was trying to call in supernatural powers to destroy all life on earth so that its members could become godlike rulers of a cleared planet.

MikalM knows. Peace is a marxist codeword for War, which they call The Struggle, just as Justice, Fairness and Equality are excuses for resentment and retribution.

I imagine there are true pacifists who aren't cowards or pathological liars. They're cuddly and sweet but useless in an emergency. Stories of pacifist accomplishments in Mao's China, Stalin's Russia and Pol Pot's Cambodia are legion.....(snort). It's better to do nothing than something and to die quietly on your knees instead of fight. How pure.

Cardboard Mike Tyson sports huge Mao and Che tattoos. He's a homeless, washed up nobody so I don't hate him for his ignorance. I can't work up any anger either over Green Day's great political statement, American Idiot, because they're adult children in teenagers bodies. Bad Religion, now there's something solid to hate. The only advice a heroin addict can and should offer is to stay off heroin. To come back as a political pedophile is even worse than sticking needles filled with smack in your veins because hate is better taken out on yourself than spread like a cancer in the minds of impressionable children. I also wonder if Gnome Crapsky, the sociopathic Mr. Rogers, actually teaches any classes at MIT.

Amazing how many granola-crunchie new-agers (not that I'd want to label anybody) have a particularly old school Dissenter sensibility; i.e., we "deserve" our fate 'cos of how we're frigging up mother nature, too consumerist, etc, ad nauseum.
