What’s up at Fishwrap these days?

Sometimes I forget for days at a time that the stinky Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) even exists. Happy days, those.  Then something comes into view, like road-kill, and I go to look at it.

This week we learn that …

AOC is the future of the Catholic Church. Be comforted.  This is from the always-wrong Heidi Schlumpf.

Also, Madame Defarge, Tricoteuse of the New catholic Red Guard, is still freaking out about Archbishop Viganò, who apparently is living inside the casement above un-severed Madame’s neck.

Heidi has simply accepted what I suppose is either a lie or really bad mistake on the part of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, namely that Rep. Ted Yoho of Florida called her something I’d rather not write. AOC had a blatantly cynical, political spittle-flecked nutty on the floor of the House which Heidi thinks was packed with “Catholic values”. I’m unsure how rash judgment and then defaming another person in public in the way she did reflects Catholic values. Again, I think that AOC, seeing a chance to make some political hay while her seat is being challenged, made this up so she could make some hay from it. Heidi wants to believe AOC uncritically because, after all: Rep. Yoho, “describes himself as “pro-life” and has received an “A” rating from the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List, which notes that he “has voted consistently to protect the lives of the unborn” and “defended the Trump administration’s pro-life regulatory efforts from pro-abortion attacks to prohibit their implementation.” He also has received an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association.” Morever, AOC is “a member of the Democratic Socialists of America” and “a young Latina”. That settles it.

Defarge (Michael Sean Winters), who once wrote – I am not making this up – that he wants to watch conservatives be killed, guillotined (HERE) is still grinding away at Archbp. Viganò’s “Testimony”.  It was was released two years ago. Yes, Viganò has issued other things since then. Defarge leads with the fact that the two-year old testimony coincided with Francis’ visit to Ireland and it “was designed to gain maximum exposure”. That from a guy who has a column which he would like to see maximally exposed. I’m helping him out. Of course people write things and released them publicly with a view that very few people will read them. Right?

Defarge is deeply concerned that Viganò violated canon law. This may be a first for someone who writes for the Fishwrap.  He is concerned that there is “schism in the air”. He wasn’t so concerned when John Paul II and Benedict XVI were in charge and his lot repeatedly scorned them and violated all manner of ecclesial laws.  And the very publication he writes for is guilty of scorning and violating ecclesial law by retaining “Catholic” in their title against the express command of the Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph.

Defarge’s attitude is on display in his vocabulary: “profoundly disturbed… spewing… skunk…”. At least he has moved on from “venomous“. Here’s a choice bit at the end: “It is an awful thing to look at another human being and speculate about whether they are mentally disturbed or simply evil, but Viganò’s behavior has invited the question.”   Yes, it is an awful thing.  And there Winters does exactly that awful thing, not privately, but for all to see.

I’m reminded of…

Defarge notes that some of the people he says he wants to watch die (conservatives) have recently criticized Viganò’s latest comments.   Like a good little aspirant to the New catholic Red Guards, he used the opportunity to snitch on people who haven’t adequately denounced Viganò.  Namely Raymond Arroyo, Robert Royal and Fr. Gerry Murray, all three of whom I am happy to call good friends.  They need to be hauled to their “struggle sessions” before they get the razor.

Defarge concludes:

For those of you who are perhaps young or have less knowledge of the Cultural Revolution which so inspires the New catholic Red Guards, a “struggle session“:

Fishwrap, ladies and gentlemen.
