You don’t need to watch zombie shows on TV to see the zombiefication that’s going on in American culture today. So writes wingnut Patrice Lewis in her latest column for the conspiracy-driven site, WorldNetDaily.
My biggest concern is [that] America is cultivating real-life zombies like
That her family hasn’t owned a television in 20 years, let alone seen any of these shows, apparently does not disqualify her from making po-faced predictions of an American apocalypse. Citing an “essay” on how to prepare for impending doom, she reminds her readers that a starving population resorts to mindless anarchy after just 3 days. Under such circumstances, we would begin to see the key characteristics of zombies:
They are incapable of rational thought. They march in groups through the streets, terrorizing everyone. They create nothing but fear, produce nothing but dread and take whatever they want through brute force
And who is most likely to comprise this mob of post-apocalyptic zombies? Not the “hard-working people who have made God and family their priority” or “those who have educated themselves in useful, productive, needed trades” or “have cultivated a strong work ethic and [sense of ] personal responsibility,” or have “kept out of debt, stocked their pantries and made sure they had a shotgun behind the door.” In other words, people like her.
Nope, it’s going to the “real-life zombies” our permissive culture has created. You know who they are. They are the product of an education system that forces students
to attend schools where they are inculcated with unprovable theories presented as hard facts, where individuality and free thought are stifled, respect for authority in general (and parents in particular) is trashed, history is revised to suit political correctness, and “micro-aggression” is blamed for everything from global warming to dust bunnies under the bed.
They are the product of government policies that “destroy families by removing fathers from the home and paying women to have babies out of wedlock”; of secular beliefs that “belittle and vilify anything resembling a Higher Authority (which might put a damper on hedonism and “self-expression”)”; and of cultural mores that foster “a victim mentality” and, in so doing, obviate any notion of personal responsibility.
It is the people, “who have spent their whole lives having things handed to them” who will become the marauding zombies when the apocalypse comes, whether it be economic or environmental.
For Lewis, there is only one way to guarantee your survival in the advent of an apocalypse:
Take your brains back so you can grow up and become an adult.
And don’t forget to stock up on canned goods and tin foil…
