Conserving Compassion:
"We Don't Care!"


It was bound to happen, but I'm surprised that it took this long.

Rightwing whackos, led by a rightwing wacko disc jockey who likes to dress up in uniform (even though he never served a day in any branch of anyone's military), descended on Crawford, Texas, to protest (loudly) the protest (silent) of a grieving mother-- who stands in a ditch waiting patiently for George W. Vacation Boy to define his "noble cause" in Iraq.

While Cindy Sheehan's supporters sang "God bless America," rightwing whacko disc jockey, Mike Gallagher, raised his bullhorn and led his "army" in the following chant:

"WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE!"




I understand that Gallagher has 4 children of military service age.

Not one of them plans to fight for George W.'s "noble cause."

I wonder if they're proud of their papa's fake uniform...




I also wonder if they're proud of their papa's "We don't care" chant, directed at the mother of a fallen soldier.

And why did they stay such a short time?

Like George W., did they have to "go on with their lives?"

Pitiful.

Just plain pitiful.

Hey Delilah,

You gotta be down with the Chickster. True, it's scary as hell that a man could devote so much of his life to scrawling hundreds of hateful mini-comics and distributing them worldwide.
But I like to think that Chick-tracts (or Chicktrocities, as they're sometimes known) have done a great job of turning people away from that blood-thirsty old-time religion. I suspect Jack has converted more people to atheism than Christism.

For decades, JC (hey, check the initials!) has been covering the hard topics that the godless media won't touch - the 6000 year-old earth; how to intellectually beat down your liberal/satanist/evolutionist school teachers with easy questions that blow Darwin out of the water; how virtually everyone is going to hell, especially those who seem to live a virtuous (but Jebus-free) life - every nutjob topic that's creeping out from under rocks and into the mainstream right now has been the subject of a Chick-tract (or a dozen).

I think my favourite has to be the near-wordless (the only text consists of "Pssst", "Noooo!" and "It's AIDS") big-panel strip about the 12 year-old kid skipping to school who is accosted by a joint-wielding satanist in an alley ("Pssst!"). Within a few panels, he's shooting up, then arrested, then sodomised in jail ("Noooo!"), then diagnosed with AIDS (you get the picture), and finally expiring on his death bed. I can't remember if he manages to accept Jack Chick as his personal lordnsaviour before the end. He have ended up roasting for all eternity as well, I'm not sure.
Now I have to look it up. I'll try to post a link.

Thanks for a stonking blog (and Blogbox), incidentally.

Ah, I see that it's just the heading on this page.

Here's one to help your innocent daughters from being converted by the swarthy Muslims next door (seriously): http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1054/1054_01.asp

But Jack's got a real love for the Jewish people, in as much as they are part and parcel of armageddon prophecy:
