Senator Calls New Capitol Visitor Center A 'Left-Leaning' Offense To God

News

Hey if any of you far-away losers want to visit Washington D.C. on "vacation" soon, to teach your brat kids about America, now's the grandest time of all! Because thanks to your$621 million in appropriated taxpayer funds -- yes that's right, 6, 2, and 1, glued together, a million of them, in dollars -- a fancy new UNDERGROUND VISITOR CENTER at the U.S. Capitol finally opened on Tuesday. It is underground so you don't get too cold or hot -- depending on the season! -- as your fat ass waits in line for a tour. One Senator, the very conservative Jim DeMint of South Carolina, despises this new visitor center -- but not because of its completely inappropriate cost, of course! No, he's just concerned that the center's exhibits don't praise God quite enough, and that the exhibits themselves are "left-leaning," which is common D.C. slang for "gay."


DeMint criticized the center after its architect "ignored his request to include the phrase 'In God We Trust' and the Pledge of Allegiance." Poor Jim DeMint! Instead of giving up on this tiny pathetic matter and returning to work on such pressing events as the collapsing foundation of capitalism, DeMint decided that he would release the stupidest four-paragraph protest statement in Congressional history. We shall excerpt paragraph #2:

The current [Capitol Visitor Center] displays are left-leaning and in some cases distort our true history. Exhibits portray the federal government as the fulfillment of human ambition and the answer to all of society’s problems. This is a clear departure from acknowledging that Americans’ rights ‘are endowed by their Creator’ and stem from ‘a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.’ Instead, the CVC’s most prominent display proclaims faith not in God, but in government. Visitors will enter reading a large engraving that states, ‘We have built no temple but the Capitol. We consult no common oracle but the Constitution.’ This is an intentional misrepresentation of our nation’s real history, and an offensive refusal to honor America's God-given blessings.

Why is it that when people like Jim DeMint walk into any building at all, they expect it to be a church? Perhaps this new money bonfire underground tunnel stresses the importance of government institutions more than usual because it's THE ENTRANCE TO THE MOST FAMOUS GOVERNMENT INSTITUTION. Meh, just throw DeMint a stained glass window of Jesus screwing Mary Magdalene or something.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
