Do you recognize this person? You should if you don’t. It’s you. It’s me. It’s everyone who’s watched too much TV (and even watching a little TV is watching too much TV). It’s whatever we want it to be. It’s the latest Rorschach Test administered by the mainstream media. “Tell us what you think. Or better yet, we’ll tell you what to think and then you can tell us — how does that sound? A deal? If you think differently than what we tell you, well, then you’re a candidate for a future Rorschach Test just like this one. We’ve got you coming and going. There’s no way out.” It’s best not to know, and if you can’t help but knowing, it’s best to laugh and enjoy because “you can’t stop what’s coming, it ain’t all waiting on you — that’s vanity.”
For those who don’t already know, and those who have their head so far up their ass all they see are polyps and last night’s decaying dinner, his name is Craig Hicks, and what an All-American name it is. Actually, the mainstream media has chosen to pin the three name tag, Craig Stephen Hicks, on this latest assassin, which is, as Disaffected (DA) and I have discussed in the comments to a previous blog post, the kiss of death, meaning regardless of the facts the accused is automatically guilty of whatever the mainstream media, as the mouthpiece of The State, says he/she is guilty of. Craig Hicks joins a short list, but getting longer, of the most despised killers on the face of the planet.
It’s laughing at me, at us, again as I indicated in my last blog post. Of course, I threw it in there obscurely knowing full well most people wouldn’t pick up on it, and I’m sure most people didn’t. For those who did, kudos to you for having the capacity to see it and understand it. For the rest of you, snap to and get with the program, or better yet, get out of the program (the pipeline) or you could be the winner of the next Three Name Challenge. What am I talking about? An Egregore, that’s what I’m talking about. It’s an intangible. It’s thee intangible and it’s as real as that tree, that car, that mountain, that corpse or ubiquitous plastic. You just have to wear the special glasses to see it, and those glasses, I assure you, are not rose-coloured. In the previous thread, I quoted from Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, which I’m almost finished reading, what the character Quentin Compson says about the Egregore. Of course, Faulkner doesn’t refer to it as an Egregore, but from his poetic description we know, or at least I do, that it’s an Egregore, perhaps thee Egregore, to which he’s referring. Here’s the quote:
“That that grins at you — that thing — through them.”
That thing is grinning and laughing all the time. I know, because I catch it in the act every day, and today is no exception and tomorrow won’t be either. Just last week, before Craig Hicks shot Deah Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha in the head, as I indicated above, for no apparent reason Disaffected and I in a previous thread had a discussion about assassins and the three name designation, and what do you know, right on time the Egregore delivers another three name assassin. It’s grinning — that thing — through them. You can try in vain to ignore it, or go mad, or grin back and shoot it the bird rather than the lead it craves. I choose The Bird. Here’s my finger you fuck, down the throat of all your Walking Dead involuntary adherents swallowing anything evil. Not that it will matter, but it’s the thought that counts. And who would argue that Craig Hicks isn’t the Bad Man and they know what it’s like behind those blue eyes? Not me. Not on your life, or mine.
If you haven’t watched the leading YouTube video from The Amazing Atheist, please do because it explains, quite thoroughly, why this is most likely not a hate crime and how this latest shooting story in a litany of shooting stories wouldn’t be headline news if it wasn’t for a middle-aged White guy executing three Muslims. This article from The Blaze also does an excellent job of objectively covering this story. I know, it’s The Blaze, but it’s important to be fair & balanced, and in my opinion this article coupled with The Amazing Atheist video is about as objective as you’re going to get with this story. For the record, when I provide references it doesn’t mean I’m an advocate of those references. It merely means that the specific link I’ve provided supports and underscores my point at the moment. It’s not necessarily an endorsement of the author and the organization and/or ideology with which the author is associated and embraces. For example, I’m not an atheist and I’m not a conservative because there is no me, yet I’ve provided links from both those respective sources because it/they fit(s) — like a glove. I found this comment at The Blaze link particularly pertinent and it fits the title of this post like a glove. The mainstream media is priming us for hate. The mainstream media is guilty of Hate Primes — all day, every day forever and ever amen.

The media loves conflict of any kind. Didn’t we just hear from the head talking head that, if it bleeds, it leads?
To have conflict, you must have adversaries. In order to create adversaries, polar sides have to be delineated. Labels delineate. Media creates labels, and hapless schmoes think they have to decide if they are the delineated, or the anti-delineated, in order to figure out which ‘side’ they are in alignment with. . . .
Just laying out a logical progression to try to answer your question. Of course, those who aren’t very logical may come here and let you know that it is not the label you should be concerned with, but the babel accompanying it.
