The day after Pope Francis congratulated and offered prayers for President Trump; publishing a letter praising American values and urging demonstrators not to rush to judgment; the Red Pill Cultists on the Radical Right attacked the Pope today. The focus of their ire was an interview that the Pope gave to the Spanish newspaper El Pais on Friday. Fragments of the interview have been spread out of context; and occurring simultaneously with Inauguration Day, both the Corporate Media and the Manosphere have taken the Pope's remarks to refer to President Trump.
Interesting how the Corporate Media and the Red Pills always seem to follow the same narrative, isn't it? Red Pill blogger Andrew Anglin of The Daily Stormer---which is currently carrying a series of articles purportedly demonstrating that Fascism is an inherently Christian philosophy---wrote a piece today titled Pope Faggot Warns that a New Hitler is on the Way. What the Pope actually said was this; but we would like to alert readers in advance how many relevant contexts the Corporate Media omitted when reporting the text:
"I didn't know what to make of Populism in Europe until I realized that it had different meanings for different peoples. Times of crises provoke fear and alarm. In my opinion the most obvious example of European Populism is Germany in 1933. After Von Hindenburg and the crisis of 1930, Germany is broken, it needs to get up, to find its identity, to find a leader, someone capable of restoring its character. And then there is this young man named Adolf Hitler who says 'I can, I can.' And all Germans vote for Hitler. Hitler didn't seize power, his people voted for him and then he destroyed his people. That is the risk. In times of crises, we lack judgment, and that is a constant reference for me. Let's look for a savior who gives us back our identity; and let's defend ourselves with walls, barbed-wire whatever, from other peoples who may rob us of our identity. And that is a very serious thing."
So, it is apparent from this context that the Pope is not talking about America at all, but warning Europeans not to fall into the same mistakes of a century ago by looking for a savior in political leader instead of a Savior in Christ. And warning them too, that their common identity as Christians should lead to dialogue instead of conflict:
"This is why I always say: talk among yourselves. Talk to each other. But the case of Germany in 1933 is typical, a people that was immersed in a crisis, that looked for its identity until a charismatic leader came and promised to give them their identity back---and he gave them a distorted identity. We all know what happened next, where there is no conversation. Can borders be controlled? Yes, each country has the right to control its borders, who comes and goes, and to reduce risk from terrorism and crime. But no country has the right to deprive its citizens to talk with their neighbors."
This obviously again has to do with the situation in Europe, and the Pope even denied, when asked by the reporter, that this referred to President Trump. What Francis is actually saying here is that Populism devoid of Christian morality is a dangerous course; and we not only have Hitler Germany, but Jacobin France, Bolshevist Russia, Maoist China, the Khmer Rouge, and Wahhabi Arabs to see examples of that.
Anglin, though, puts a different construction on Populism. "Populism simply means the will of the people coming first. And Hitler is the ultimate representation of Populism. So when we're told how bad Hitler is, aren't we simply being told how bad the will of the people is?"
Umm...yes...because God's Will is higher than that of any Government, including Populist ones. And aside from the fact that 'populists' like Hitler are concerned with the popular will only until the split-second they have power; the people can---and often have---been wrong. Hitler is actually proof of this fact, as the Pope stated.
And this proof further that the Red Pill Movement is neither a Christian nor a Conservative Movement. It is the Right-Wing equivalent of the Leftist anti-Election rioters; and generally moving towards the same ultimate goals.
