Yesterday we discussed a post Belinda had published on her Knight Foundation blog. We were looking at it in terms of ‘dog-whistle’ terms (words and phrases that have one meaning for the general public, but elicit very specific reactions from the troofer audience), but we also noted that the post trailed off into strange gibberish.
Some of our commenters attempted to decipher Belinda’s odd linguistic lapse, to hilarious effect; but late yesterday, we discovered that Belinda had gone back and done some editing. In fact, the post had suddenly doubled in length.
We don’t propose to bore you with it in its entirety, although if you’re having trouble sleeping tonight you can find it here.
Meanwhile, here’s where Belinda took up from her first version. As you might recollect, we were discussing the Temple of Baal, which had either been blown up or not blown up, by ISIS or someone else, Belinda wasn’t saying:
Let’s take it point by point:
- “Then it wasn’t to be installed; there’d been a world-wide protest via the alternative media against the glorification of anything to do with ancient child-sacrifice and the event had been called off“: Balderdash. Nothing of the sort happened. And it wasn’t the Temple of Baal, but another completely different monument. See #2.
- “(W)e learned that the wretched relic was to be installed and unveiled after all“: Well, sort of. Except that it wasn’t the Temple of Baal at all, but rather Palmyra’s Arch of Triumph, an 1,800-year-old monument that was destroyed by Islamic State militants lhilast October. However, it was built in Italy and unveiled in Trafalgar Square, and yes, the regrettable Mr Johnson was involved. So…partial truth there. We suppose.
- “The EU is a big building-block towards the New World Order“: Now hold on just a cotton-pickin’ minute here, Belinda. Is your bestie Sabine not completely enamoured of the EU Parliament, one of the few places that will let her stand up in public and spout off her poisonous rhetoric? And what about Deborah Mahmoudieh, alleged ‘EU Law Specialist’? Wasn’t Belinda doing her level best last fall to try to make it appear that a visiting group of MEPs were somehow linked to her ‘Forced Adoptions’ event?
- “19 April was of course Day 1 of the 13 days leading up to the ‘fire and fertility’ occult festival of Beltane or 1st May, May-Day or in modern times Labour Day so Corbyn and the Corbynistas are not quite excluded from this occult scenario“: We went over this yesterday, but apparently Belinda wasn’t paying attention, so we’ll try again: Beltane is a festival celebrated by Celtic peoples, and while it predates Christianity, it’s nothing to do with the Temple of Baal, ancient Babylon, or modern Syria. Nice try wedging Corbyn in there, though. We’re pretty certain that he didn’t invent Beltane, May Day, or Labour Day, but we’re sure he appreciates the thought.
5. “Maggie, so long as she remains alive and frankly it’s touch and go these days”: Wow. Just…wow. If we were Maggie, we might be less than delighted to have Belinda practically burying us before we’d drawn our last. We do understand that Maggie Tuttle has been ill, but still. This might just win Belinda first prize in the Tastelessness Sweeps.
6. “Maggie live on and enjoy the kind of immortality no grVESTOINE“: Huh? We can only assume that Belinda was so overcome with grief at the impending loss of her friend that she could not help somehow inserting a strange misspelling of ‘gravestone’ into the sentence. See previous remarks re tastelessness.You know what? We’re not even going to bother trying to enumerate this. Just read the underlined bits and ask yourself: does this woman have a drinking problem? Or has her mind finally snapped?
We’ll let you be the judge.
