President Of Creation Museum Is Just Like Oppressed Civil Rights Leaders Of 1950s Selma, Obviously

News

Attention civil rights activists! Your fierce and courageous devotion to fighting against injustice is sorely needed in the horribly oppressive town of San Diego, which has, sadly, turned into 1950s Alabama. No, there are no segregated drinking fountains. No, there have been no lynchings. No, there is no tired lady who would just like to have her seat on the bus, goddamnit. But there is a heinous, oppressive evil afoot, and we are not talking about former Mayor Bob Grabass Filner. We are talking about -- trigger warning for atrocious atrocities of atrociousness -- this:


The president of a museum which teaches that dinosaurs walked the Earth at the same time as humans said this week that San Diego was “like Selma, Alabama in the 1950s” because his ministry was denied a seat on the local museum council.

“I’m afraid we are being opposed for nothing more than the old prejudice against God,” [museum President Tom] Cantor lamented.

Oh, the humanity!

Imagine presidenting a museum, if you dare, dedicated to the "scriptural and scientific evidence that reinforces the biblical account of creation and support the body of Christ in fulfilling its commission in offering educational and evangelistic opportunities through interactive museum experiences and activities" -- and then being denied a seat on a local council for absolutely no reason other than "the old prejudice against God," and definitely not because the museum does not meet the council's guidelines. Isn't that right, Council President Council President Danielle Susalla GEORGE WALLACE Deery?

“Like their animal care and the protocol and care of their exhibitions and storage,” Deery explained. “They had a lot of areas that were not in line with membership guidelines. They have a staff member on the board of directors and that’s not good governance.”

Oh. Well, actually, that does sound like sort of a reasonable explanation. But then, True Believer Cantor isn't buying that Jim Crow bullshit, because you know who else used membership guidelines to discriminate against the most downtrodden among us?

“It’s like we’re in Selma, Alabama in the 1950s and I want to have a museum on black Americans,” Cantor said. “Do you think I’ll be accepted by the council of museums in Selma, Alabama?”

It is EXACTLY like that. Lunch counters, museum councils. Same difference. Well, San Diego, you can beat him and arrest him and sic the dogs on him -- or deny council membership for failure to meet its guidelines, which is basically the same thing -- but Cantor shall overcome ... by re-applying next year. The arc of the moral universe is long, after all, but it bends toward museum council membership.

Gonna be a long day, y'all, you ready to dive in? We should note at the outset that any of the questions about obstruction of justice are colored by the fact that Trump refused to sit for an interview with Robert Mueller. Guess that's part of why Robert Mueller refused to clear him! But anyway, we will have more time for thoughts as we read.

Let's read the Mueller Report!

April 20 will be the 20th anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School. Mother Jones yesterday published a report on mass shooters (or would-be shooters) who in one way or another mentioned the Columbine murders as something they wanted to emulate, or as a benchmark they hoped to outdo. Since 1999, there have been more than 100 plots or actual attacks influenced by Columbine. MoJo national affairs editor Mark Follman notes,

And those are just the cases for which there is some kind of public record: In talking with law enforcement and mental health sources who work to prevent such attacks, I've learned of dozens more Columbine-influenced threats that never made the news.
