Quote# 84408

I am so very grateful that the Lord who is sovereign over all led Columbus to accidentally discover this land. Providentally the European diseases he inadvertantly brought with him served to weaken the numbers of the savages that they were not able to overcome the various European groups that came across the ocean. I am particularly grateful for men like Cortez who liberated countless numbers of the poor wretches from the vile Aztecs. Likewise, Pizarro was God's instrument against the Incas.

When they do it, it's genocide. When we do it, it's "liberation". Gotcha.

What an idiot. What a complete idiot.

Well, God has always been pro-genocide, so he has a point.

10/21/2011 3:37:55 AM

But why did he turn all those Europeans who colonised the Americas into total dicks?

10/21/2011 3:38:23 AM


Well, er, at least he's not trying to re write history???

I don't often hit the WTF button as soon as I read a post, but I did so with this one. It's certainly a twofer, possibly even a trifecta. Either way this is certainly a vile mindset. There is only one comment I can make:

Proudly marching into the 16th century!

I am so very grateful that Allah who is sovereign over all let Mohammed Atta to fly the airplanes into the building and weaken the infidels who occupy Allah land.

Oh, so it's alright when YOU commit genocide, but not when other religions do? Fuck off!

Please do go on. Often, the most powerful arguments against a principle are the arguments for it.

I was initially inclined to call Poe on this, but then I read the source thread, which even MORE disgusting than the quote. They literally believe that such massive genocide was justified because it brought "the Gospel" to a new continent. Rage does not even begin to describe my reaction.

The treaties between the Native Americans and the US are expiring in 2012.

Just sayin'.

In praise of genocide

Once again the use of Aztec human sacrifice to justify the conquest. It is oh so trite and oh so boring. Of course what happened to those "liberated" after the conquest was not plesant. What with stunning depopulation by disease, forced labour and the systematic year zero like attack on Indian culture + civilization. In otherwords the death of a civilization. I don't find this episode, like all great human tragedy's wonderful. I wonder if our writer has even a glimmer of real knowlwdge of the depths of the disaster that hit the Indians of Mesoamerica and Peru.

I note here that the natives of Hispanola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), "benefited" from the Spanish conquest by being completely whipped out in less than a century aftert Columbus. But thats OK they were babtised first.(sic).

It still amazes me that there are still people that think like this.

I wonder if he would have any self-awareness at his situation if he were to find himself as a member of a group beset by technologically-superior invaders, therefore being the “savage” relative to said invaders.

10/21/2011 5:25:27 AM


What a disturbing thought process.

"Sure people are dead, but that's okay because the Lord ok'd it first!."

He conveniently left out the Holocaust and other disturbing acts of genocide that were a radical spin on Christianity.

10/21/2011 5:29:32 AM


While the native Americans didn't have the technology that the Europeans had I think your post demonstrates that you are the real savage here. You're attitude is the very reason genocide happens way too often in the world. To be grateful for the death of millions makes you a complete monster and a danger to society.

10/21/2011 5:32:06 AM


a savage is not defined by technologicl standard he lives in, but by the culture and mindset he belongs to.

Puritan board = savages!

Thank God for genocide!

*edit* As I just saw in RSTDT, GOD = Giver Of Destruction.

Also, I just read the thread.

@Extraintrovert: Actually, it seems like only a few of the guys there believe that. The others seem more reasonable. Remember, just because a site has several raving fundies in it, doesn't mean the site is ENTIRELY composed of raving fundies.

Fucking hell, one of the people there has a Half-Life 2 avatar.

10/21/2011 6:19:11 AM


Dont you know that "liberated" in this case mostly means killed or otherwise imprisoned, tortured etc?

10/21/2011 6:31:35 AM


Wow. Fuck off and die.

10/21/2011 6:32:20 AM


I sincerely hope this is a poe. Srsly.

If Gadaffi had been a Christian, you would have cried when he was shot, and called it a black day for the World.
