With Moonbattery, the Medium Is the Message

To quote Marshall McLuhan,

In a culture like ours, long accustomed to splitting and dividing all things as a means of control, it is sometimes a bit of a shock to be reminded that, in operational and practical fact, the medium is the message.

This has never been truer than in our current era of moonbattery run amok. Leftists’ stated message generally consists of outrageous lies. The real message is expressed not through the medium, but by the medium.

A classic example is burning police stations, looting businesses, and destroying statues of our national heroes in the name Black Lives Matter. Slogans referencing conspicuously nonexistent black oppression are not the real message. The real message is that they hate American civilization and intend to destroy it.

Another example is the 44-foot banner reading “GOD BLESS ABORTIONS” with which leftists desecrated the Christ of the Ozarks statue in Arkansas.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports:

The 65-foot statue is located in Eureka Springs on Magnetic Mountain. It’s one of five known giant statues of Christ in the world, according to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas. The statue can been seen from 20 miles away.

The blasphemous banner was hung by the aptly named leftist sect Indecline, which crows on Instagram,

We just think abortion is a goddamn miracle worth celebrating. It saves lives, but those lives are usually female.

Killing babies saves lies. This is especially good because the imaginary lives saved are “usually female,” and according to liberal ideology, a female life is worth more than a male life, just as a black life is worth more than a white life.

They should have claimed that the imaginary lives saved are usually black. True, blacks are vastly more likely to be killed by abortion. But so are girls.

The patently false, sanctimonious rhetoric is not the real message. The medium is. Here, the medium is blasphemy.

At bottom, this isn’t about promoting degeneracy or even about killing babies. It is about spitting at God by throwing the gift of life back in His face.
