Evil is the leitmotif of today’s culture, in politics and in the arts. It’s an analogy that bedevils my thinking.
The Democrats remind me of the Whisperers, the latest villains in The Walking Dead TV series, who have rejected civilized life to live in nature (‘as nature intended,’ remarked Alpha), subsisting on worms and grubs. They are determined to erase what is left of civilization, and to punish the living who work to live, by killing the living. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tliab, and IIlhan Omor are the “living” zombies or walkers, together with their MSM boosters, amongst us. They are the minor “Alphas” who command the herds of the dead. They are the shock troops of the Whisperers. By wearing walker (zombie) masks, they pretend to be walkers, but are armed with knives and will kill.
The previous super villain, Negan, led a group of looters who raided productive communities of survivors, or held their existence for ransom with the threat of extinction if they did not submit. Negan killed at the drop of a hat. He was a psychopathic and verbose killer. The difference between Negan and the Whisperers is that at least Negan valued the material comfort he wrested from his victims. Alpha and her Whisperers, far on the other hand, are nihilists to the core. They eschew all civilized comforts, and kill and destroy for the sake of effecting negation. Civilized life and values are a joke, says Alpha.
As a story device, the Whisperers are literally incredible. In reality, no one could live for long the way it is depicted how they live from day to day "in nature." Disease, malnutrition, constant exposure to rain and snow, and a host of parasites would weaken their bodies and ultimately kill them – aside from their cult-driven mental problems – and cause a growing attrition in the human numbers of the Whisperer tribe. Alpha and her second in command, Beta, appear to be the only relatively “healthy” members. Beta is six-foot brute and the “enforcer” of the tribe. He does as Alpha wishes, and kills on cue.
Alpha committed her first murder in Baltimore when she was hiding with her family in a basement at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. She killed her husband when he began to go stir-crazy. She nearly murdered her daughter when the girl began to suffocate from a plastic wrap. In the beginning of the latest episode, she calmly scalps a comely woman she has killed, humming, and uses the hair in a disguise herself, by wearing the scalped hair over her shaven head, to infiltrate a community’s fair, aside from donning the woman’s dress and hat. Her face is blemished with dark spots; she is not an advertisement for living in a raw environment. She shaved her mind of all rational values, just as she shaved her head. See the illustration above of her holding a Whisperer mask.
The other Dems comprise a herd of “walkers” and stalk humans (wearing skinned walker masks) led by: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib). Nancy Pelosi is the chief Alpha of the story. As a death-worshipping cult, the Whisperers, much like Islam, nurture a festering and implacable malice and hatred for anything that evokes the “old” world and despise anyone who attempts to recreate it. The Dems work to erase a society based on reason.
I have watched this series from its debut in 2010 to the present to see how it would eventually mirror our crooked and corrupt culture. I’m certainly not a fan of any kind of horror film, but I watched this series because it featured men and women dealing with “emergency” situations.
The TWD series is pocked with gaping plot holes, marred with gaps of causo- connections in action and dialogue. Often the story continuity falters.
"May my mercy prevail over my wrath." This is first said by Siddiq in Episode “Mercy” when Carl, the group’s leader, comes across Siddiq (nominally a Muslim) hiding in an abandoned gas station. Rick repeats it later in the series in one of his hallucinating or dream segments. The homily was likely invented by the writers and producers of the series, because it does not occur in the Koran. This is according to Robert Spencer, an authority on jihad; neither of us could find a statement in the Koran that remotely reflects the Mohammadan homily. Spencer suggested Koran passage at 32:13, but we both came up zilch.
32:13: And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect [that] I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together.
Lots of wrath, but no mercy.
In my Rule of Reason column, in answer to a reader’s question whether or not Muslims will be visible among the herds of “walkers. From Season 8:
“No, it won't be allowed. There were no Muslim walkers or zombies in any episode, just herds of mostly white ones, with a sprinkling of blacks and Asians. No Muslimas in hijabs, abayas, or burkas, nor Muslim men wearing kufis or caps, attacking the living, as they do in real life. The villains were all white, including the cannibals who ran the Terminus slaughterhouse. TWD will never portray evil Muslims. It made its commitment to Islam through having a character recite from allegedly the Koran at the opening of Season 8: "May my mercy prevail over my wrath." This is Dawah, or proselytizing Islam under the radar of dialogue.”
An evil Muslim walker would mirror the repressed character and yearings of the average Muslim.
CAIR doubtless warned the writers and producers of TWD that to portray Muslims as grotesque“ walkers” preying on the living would be regarded as “offensive” and “denigrating.” It would reflect on what Islamic jihadists do daily.
And CAIR doubtless gave TWD a pass on the mercy-wrath homily, confident that most people would not question its authenticity. It sounds Islamic and genuine. In point of fact, the homily sounds Christian, not Islamic. It’s the moral kind of imperative that Jesus would preach, not Mohammad.
The malice displayed by Nancy Pelosi in the House casts her in the role as Alpha, the murderous, malevolent leader of the Whisperers. She has done everything in her power to block President Trump’s border wall and other proposals in his agenda. She is complemented by one dimwit, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the two rabid anti-Semite Muslims, Omar and Tlaib. The other Dems do Pelosi’s bidding, and rally ‘round the anti-Semites Omar and Tliab. The Dem herd does Pelosi’s bidding, and rallyies ‘round Omar and Tliab. Pelosi has endorsed the idea of abolishing the electoral college, and granting illegal immigrants the right to vote and the whole panoply of welfare state benefits. She will endorse the passing of the “Equality Act”, which is intended to “normalize” LGBTs by making any discrimination against them punishable. She is willing to allow thousands of illegal immigrants to break into the country to better the Dems' election prospects in the 2020 election.
The Dems – as our Congressional Whisperers – are determined to rob Americans of every freedom at every turn on the crooked road to socialism and collectivism.
