Rant0matic: Slywyrd Screwtape Posts for Me

I can just hear a present-day demon — we’ll call him Slywyrd – a CEO devil running the American franchise. Picture him urging his underlings on to more dangerous efforts, aware that time is running out. I suspect that he has at least one functionary apiece assigned to the Democrat presidential minions. I’m sure at least one of his recent board meetings included an assessment like this:

Now, this election will make or break this country. When we win — and we must win — we will have shredded the last great stand for the Enemy. No longer will we have to fight bourgeois moral nincompoops. No longer will parents protect their sniveling offspring. We’ll be able to twist those puny brains into thinking whatever we want. They will hate God, and hate mummy and daddy. They’ll have no history to muddle their thinking. Math won’t clarify and discipline their thoughts. They will know no true art. They won’t be able to read well enough to study The Book. We’ll be able to stir them up to whatever viciousness we need.

Once we have the ankle-biters, the universe will be ours. We’ve been very successful — this business of sucking the fathers away from their families has worked well. We’ve relieved them of any need to support their children, to raise them, or to let them live. We’ve soaked their shrively little brains with drugs.

And we’ve done quite a job on the women — they’ve had to go to work and farm out motherhood, so not much is left of family, but something in humans keeps heading back there, so I want a special task force set up to work up better measures. Monday you will present seven new proposals. No failure will be tolerated. 

It’s good to see the burgeoning of sexual misbehavior. Was that you, Dildeaux, who managed to push through gay marriage? Great job. Now we just have to expand that — polygamy can make a real mess of society, so who is going to get on that? The Internet will be useful, and television, of course. Let’s get those kids ready for sexual exploration as early as possible – the drag queen insinuation into the libraries was genius. Hellspake — was that your idea? Libraries used to be dangerous places for us — all that knowledge — and now we have succeeded in tainting the very word “library.” Let’s purge the library of all excellence. Fauxpus — take that on and be quick about it. Fauxpus bobbed his head up and down in rapid and fearful succession.

 Of course, we’ve been worming our way into the schools for over a century. We’ve been patient, but school choice must die. Keep pushing multiculturalism and force promotion of abortion and gay lifestyles. The trans mess is succeeding. Sex trafficking is effective — His voice fell into a growl — But it’s not nearly enough.

We need more pain — the more damaged humans are — physically, mentally, spiritually — the better are our chances for making this world into what we want and the more likely we are to be able to ditch God altogether.

But this election is troubling. Spinthrust, are you handling Sanders? He pointed a long crooked finger at a trembling imp at the other end of the table.

Everyone in the room cowered. An elderly demon tremulously raised his hand. Is he the best you could find? Get rid of him. What were you thinking? And who is responsible for Biden? Slywyrd screamed. What in the hell is he thinking? Is he thinking? Of course, if we can get him elected, he’ll be an easy puppet to control. But there can’t be any “if” about it. Who is in charge of vote tampering? And illegal voting? What are our chances of ditching the electoral college by November?….

    I am always eager to read these posts and perspectives. I had to come on here to say (because twitter is Satan’s Own so I can’t spew it there) that dems and libs are now wondering which firearms to buy. All of a sudden, the RTBA is their born again faith.

    “Okay…now, what’s all this about guns?”
    And, you know, down deeeep in your bones, that they want that mutha fuggin AR-15. With a hoard of ammo and a big, erect magazine full of those shooty things that go pew out the front end.

    Ongoing beervirus panic topped off with my coffee pot wouldn’t start this morning, OMG the horror of it all! Anybody, 36/26/36, wearing any pearls I can clutch?

  • ghostsniper March 16, 2020, 12:53 PM

    Walked the mutt down to the road this morning, saw a lot people going nowhere.
    Guess they don’t GAF.

    Gerard, that image from the tweet in your sidebar of Jesus guiding the hand of President Trump brings tears to my eyes. He has certainly become the man for our very troubling times.

  • Vanderleun March 16, 2020, 1:43 PM

    Thank you. I’m always pleased when someone around notices the subtext in the sidebar.

    I believe the hamsterkauf and general pheromonically frantic zeitgeist has just about tipped me into squeezing the trigger on laying hands on a fine product from the next county up the coast, whenever they crank out a new batch, a Beretta BM-59, basically an updated Garand, albeit in .308 and magazine fed. Or an FAL-FN, or an M-1A. In any event, something a little punchier than a poodle shooter, and a longer arm than a 12 Ga. I’m old and cranky, and dadgummit, if I go to all the trouble of shootin’ some fool, I prefer him to be in no damn doubt about the matter.

  • Nunnya Bidnez, jr March 16, 2020, 4:06 PM

    well, CaptFlee, you should certainly come to New York, for the powers that be have declared that no crime is so great as to require that suspects be held without bail. Criminals of all sorts are being released after arraignment, no need to post bond; be sure to come back for your trial wont ya?
    Besides, the court system is closing down because Virus.

    good times, good times.

  • Casey Klahn March 16, 2020, 4:30 PM

    This just in: Trump calls it the Chinese Virus. Because the China Plague (1910) is already taken, I suppose. Libs lose they muthafuggin sh!t over it. So good. A guy should pay for this kinda entertainment.

    CPT Flee. I want that Springfield Arms updated M1 very much. Donations accepted. With the new ballistics, and my new health profile (shitty), I may actually opt for the Scout variant. I know. Getting old. Then, promptly lose it in a boating accident.

    Why get one? To keep it out of a buying lib’s hands.

    Now, to go look up that .308 you mentioned.

    Out Here,
    CPT Klahn
    INF. N/A.

  • ghostsniper March 16, 2020, 5:00 PM

    It ain’t the caliber, it’s the shot placement.
    A 5.56 through your right eye at 800 yds will ruin your day.

  • Snakepit Kansas March 16, 2020, 6:23 PM

    Heavy barreled WIN70 in .308 will cover my fields of fire here. A rifle in .223REM with a Nosler ballistic tip bullet can leave an exit wound the size of a baseball. It certainly will do so on Whitetail.

  • Casey Klahn March 16, 2020, 6:58 PM

    The reason I shoot .270: I can’t carry that heavy shooting bench with me in the field. Because Browning made mine with a sweet titanium composite barrel, it is rather a lightweight A Bolt. .270 is a necked down 30.06, and mine killz out to 550 yards. But, at that range it has a pattern like a pie plate, so I now reserve that eventuation for targets I actually hate. This is prone, off the bipod. It has (and without any doubt it was the rifle because I ain’t claiming anything) taken small, pint-eared varmints at 400, 350, 300 an, as mentioned, the vaunted 550 yards.

    What’s all this sh!t about the AR platform? Keep it.

    But, I am greedy and want that soldier rifle that SA makes. If I get outta this situation, anyway, I’ma budget for that sweet bang stick. Tired of throwing that bolt by hand.

  • Terry March 16, 2020, 7:12 PM

    Jim ONeil-

    You and I think alike from what I see on your site. From babes to corn cobs and beyond. My wife thought I was making a joke when I posted the second purpose of corn cobs here on AD. Now, after she viewed your ad for corn cobs, she is educated better that she was yesterday.

  • ghostsniper March 17, 2020, 4:09 AM

    “Tired of throwing that bolt by hand.”

    My next bolt (308) will be left handed, so I can cycle the bolt without taking my hand off the trigger.

  • captflee March 18, 2020, 4:36 PM


    My as yet uncut but cataracted eyes are not at the moment up to pulling off any 800 yd shots without optics rivaling Palomar. One of the lads from Classic Firearms was regularly ringing a steel gong at 600 yds, over iron sights with the aforementioned Beretta, so if their video is to be believed, that boomstick shows some promise.
