We’ve long known that social justice atheists are insufferable with their bloated sense of self-righteousness coupled to a slavish devotion to primitive emotions (the “id”), but it should also be more clear these days that it is probably also linked to the death of brain cells.
Consider the following June 8 post from social justice atheist PZ Myers entitled, “Hallelujah!.”
The Minneapolis city council has committed to dismantling the police department!
Myers is happily excited about this. Now, what type of person would be excited about “dismantling the police department?” Criminals. Ah, but I don’t think Myers is a criminal. That leaves us with wild-eyed zealots. And yeah, Myers would qualify there. Look, you have to be a Far-Left Hyper-Extremist Zealot, with a brain long marinated in fanatic rhetoric and propaganda, to actually think dismantling the police is a good thing.
For example, try not to laugh at the idiocy of the Minneapolis politicians (idiocy applauded by Myers):
While some council members have provided hints of what the changes might mean — sending mental health professionals or social workers to respond to certain emergencies, for example — the group did not present a single, unified vision for how they would replace policing in Minneapolis.
A woman is at home by herself late at night and a man with a ski-mask is trying to break in her back door. Who is she going to call? A social worker! A therapist!!
Clearly, social justice dogma is toxic to brain cells.
But there is more:
Organizers with Black Visions said they too don’t have all the answers about what would replace the police department, but they said police can’t be reformed through initiatives like training and body cameras. This is the beginning of the process of putting together a “police-free future,” they vowed, by investing in more community initiatives like mental health and having community members respond to public safety issues.
Having community members respond to public safety issues? You mean like vigilantes? A street gang? The mafia? A warlord?
There’s a reason these politicians are struggling so badly with “not having all the answers.”
But don’t worry. Atheist scientist PZ Myers is completely stumped too:
I’m not sure what that’ll look like, but any organization that you can call for help that does not immediately dispatch armored thugs with guns will be preferable.
Given that Myers is intellectually incapable of envisioning how a city gets by without police, he retreats into the world of simple-minded stereotypes. Y’see, all cops are “thugs.” You too can believe that if you are willing to abandon critical thinking. Which, if you think about it, is a necessary prerequisite to being a social justice atheist. 😉
