Barr squawks about the death of The Traditional Moral Order

The deeply in Trump’s pocket US Attorney General gave a talk at deeply Catholic Notre Dame University yesterday, blaming secularists for everything bad and defending…morality. This lying sleazing hack who does his level best to shield Trump from any kind of oversight and law enforcement sets himself up as a source of wisdom on morality. You couldn’t make it up.

Because of the decreasing influence of Judeo-Christian traditions, Barr insisted, “along with the wreckage of the family, we are seeing record levels of depression and mental illness, dispirited young people, soaring suicide rates, increasing numbers of angry and alienated young males, an increase in senseless violence and a deadly drug epidemic.”

(Violent crime has decreased significantly over the past quarter century, according to statistics collected by the federal government.)

He added: “I won’t dwell on the bitter results of the new secular age. Suffice it to say that the campaign to destroy the traditional moral order has … brought with it immense suffering and misery.”

Ah yes the traditional moral order. Wouldn’t that be the one in which men don’t strut around bragging about grabbing women by the pussy? The one where men who do strut around bragging about grabbing women by the pussy don’t get elected president of the US? Wouldn’t that be the one in which people aren’t supposed to lie, or cheat, or steal, or take bribes, or pay bribes, or extort, or blackmail? Wouldn’t that be the one in which people don’t deliberately incite hatred and violence? One in which people are decent to each other? One in which people have some compassion and sense of public duty? One in which people respect and obey the laws? One in which people don’t try to get away with crimes by bullying and threatening witnesses? One in which the president of the US doesn’t spend most of his time mocking and insulting individual citizens in a highly visible public forum? Wouldn’t it???

In other words who the fuck does Barr think he is? Does he think he stands for and speaks for any kind of traditional moral order? Does he not understand that he threw all that away and set fire to it the minute he consented to be Trump’s AG? Does he not realize that Trump is an evil, filthy, wicked, hideous human being who displays almost every kind of immoral behavior one can think of? Does he not grasp that Trump is above all cruel and selfish and belligerent, and thus incapable of being even minimally ok, let alone good? How dare he think he can lecture anyone on morality when he does the bidding of and protects that lying hatemongering sack of shit?

Barr called Judeo-Christian moral standards the “ultimate utilitarian rules for human conduct … They are like God’s instruction manual for the best running of man and the best operation for human society,” he added.

One, no they’re not, and two, see above.
