A large swath of Europe and the United States is currently experiencing an eerie phenomenon, one that occurs very rarely in history: a total eclipse…of reason. In the U.S., this current eclipse is afflicting much of California and the West Coast, most of the nation’s big cities, especially on the Eastern seaboard, and almost all of its college campuses and their nearby environs. Virtually all of Western Europe is affected.
This eclipse has been decades in the making, though it has dramatically accelerated in recent years, and now appears to be reaching totality. It is causing widespread confusion and mass hysteria, as many seem totally cut off from logic and sanity. Some experts say that the last time ignorance and idiocy reached current levels was during the Dark Ages, roughly between 500 and 1,000 A.D.
As Europe has gone dumb, the United States has tended to follow. This eclipse has triggered such illogical behavior in America as progressives and African-Americans throwing acid on a bust of Lincoln…who freed the slaves in 1863, and yet not making much fuss whatsoever about statues of Robert C. Byrd, a proud Democrat who rose to the levels of “Kleagle” and “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan before becoming the longest-serving member in the history of the United States Congress.
Certain scientists also believe the eclipse is responsible for Chelsea Clinton’s recent statement, referring to the “evils” of Confederate monuments, that she’s “never been in a church with a Lucifer statue.” This is a particularly odd statement given that her mom appears in at least one extant photograph planting a kiss on the aforementioned Sen. Byrd’s face, while her dad was chosen to give the now departed Senator a heart-felt and effusive eulogy. This utter lack of comprehension, discernment, and lucidity is also likely manifesting itself in the mainstream media’s nearly year-long obsession with the Trump-Russia collusion “scandal,” and simultaneous complete lack of interest in much more obvious scandals surrounding Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
This same blocking of judgment and suppression of sense could be behind an explosion of vile and nearly incomprehensible statements recently made by an assortment of “comedians,” actors, teachers, and politicians, sources say. It may also explain Nancy Pelosi referring to her differences with “President Bush” on at least four separate occasions in the past seven months.
It could even have been the cause of a few of President Trump’s tweets and his apparent flirtation with sending American troops to fight in Venezuela.
In any case, there is no doubt the Western World is in eclipse. The question is, will we ever see the light again?
