Mass starvation and disease. A total collapse of society. Bands of wild people running around in the wilderness, post-apocalypse. This is not a description of the North Country from “Game of Thrones,” or a scene from Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.”
No, this is what’s coming to Montana, and very soon. It will have been brought on by the reelection of Obama and the “Marxist philosophy that has infected the American soul.”
And this vision of our immediate future doesn’t come from some mentally disturbed militia organizer who lives in Alaska or the Klondike. They are the writings, in fact, of the chairman of the house judiciary committee of the Montana state legislature.
That’s right, apocalyptic TEA Party visions have gone mainstream in the GOP.
Krayton Kerns, in a recent series of blogs, says that the November 6th election results have brought on the imminent collapse of society, because of “food stamp dependence” and “government control” of the country. “Misery and starvation will run rampant,” he says. He says Republicans are as much to blame as Democrats, and that while most Republicans in Montana’s legislature
“identify themselves as small government conservatives, yet their voting records reveal they have joined the Democrats in advancing the principles of Marx.
But there is good news: a new race of people will be born from the ashes, wild folk, off- the-grid types. Kearns, says:
Out in the hinterlands will be small bands of God fearing families who can fend for themselves—the self-reliant ones who can raise food and use cook stoves.
These creatures, he says, will repopulate and regenerate America, thus effecting a Rebirth of the Nation.
So it looks like Bat Crap Crazy 2011 was only the beginning. There is much more fun awaiting us in 2013.
