The Goddess of Retribution

Well here in Florida the covid virus continues to spread among the unvaccinated including school children and high schoolers pushing hospitals to the breaking point.  Our local hospital has erected a tent outside of its emergency room to handle the traffic.

Meanwhile our Governor works diligently to ensure that there are no mask mandates in school, no vaccine mandates for public employees and none by employers in their businesses.  I met a moron yesterday while getting my car serviced spouting about”freedom.”

Sheesh.

Meanwhile 3 local right wing radio celebs here recently died of covid after opposing vaccination since the start of the pandemic.  Anti-vax commentators are falling all over the country.

Virulently homophobic preacher Rick Wiles, who said in January that God sent the novel coronavirus to destroy LGBTQ people died yesterday.

Wiles was a far-right conspiracy theorist and”senior pastor” at the non-denominational Flowing Streams Church. He was the founder of TruNews, a website promoting racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Wiles has said that Jews seek to obtain control of countries to kill millions of Christians, and has claimed that Jews are “deceivers” and that Jews “plot, they lie, they do whatever they have to do to accomplish their political agenda.”  In February 2020, YouTube permanently banned the TruNews channel.

Wiles was reported by The Colorado Independent in October 2014 to have said the spread of Ebola “could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion”.  In late January 2020, he said the coronavirus was God’s “death angel” and “plagues are one of the last steps of judgment.”

TruNews frequently described President Barack Obama as a “demon from hell”.  Obama, he claimed while the former president was in office, was the “jihadist-in-chief” who was “waging jihad against the United States from inside the White House” and murdered Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as a “pagan sacrifice.’

In 2017, Wiles’ guests included someone who claimed President Bill Clinton is a flesh eating cannibal leading to his contraction of related diseases. Another asserted that Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom is a “lizard person” who had Diana, Princess of Wales murdered because the Princess was in the process of revealing that the Royal Family was involved in Satanism.  He has also asserted that Israel and the “Jewish mafia” had President John F. Kennedy assassinated.

Wiles had stated that the effects of Hurricane Harvey upon the city of Houston in September 2017 resulted from Houston’s “LGBT devotion”; had called Central American immigrants a “brown invasion” being used by God to punish White Americans for legal abortion; has claimed that the 2017 Las Vegas shooting was conducted by government death squads from a “gay/lesbian Nazi regime”; and, in July 2018, predicted an imminent coup (led by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow) that would result in the nationally televised decapitation of the Trump family on the White House lawn.

He would routinely announce the names of anyone who died of AIDS followed by the playing of  “Another One Bites the Dust.”

In March 2020, at a TruNews broadcast, Wiles claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic was God’s punishment to Jews for opposing Jesus Christ and the disease spread in synagogues. Wiles also claimed that the outbreak in the United States started at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington, D.C. on March 2, 2020.

TruNews had credentials to cover the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in January, courtesy of the White House. Donald Trump and various members of his administration attended the forum, and Wiles publicly thanked Trump “for extending the invitation to be here.”  Wiles further thanked the President by calling the impeachment of Trump a “Jew coup.”

Wiles railed that the vaccines for protection against coronavirus are a plot for “global genocide” and virulently  opposed vaccination efforts.

In late May 2021, it was reported that Wiles had contracted COVID-19 and had been hospitalized.  He said that his wife was “very fatigued,” that his daughter-in-law was hospitalized, and that his grandson and other family members were suffering from coronavirus symptoms. He added that three staff members at TruNews were also ill with the virus.

Sometimes it is difficult to look for a bright side to the attack of the Covid.  With over 650,000 dead in this country and politicians playing with lives for primary votes one wonders where is the justice.  Where is the Karma?

Where is Nemesis,  the goddess who enacts retribution against those who succumb to hubris and arrogance before the gods?

She is here.

That Bat-shit crazy SOB died yesterday- of Covid-19.

Fitting.  Indeed.

 

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    There is a joy that bubbles like an ooze from oil, like a balm of Gilead, Schadenfreude!

    I thought we had some crazy nasty people over here, but the US definitely tops the leader board! I feel like playing ‘Another one bites the dust’ in honour of that maniac’s death, but would never stoop to his level.
    Best wishes, Pete.
