Cookie Monster - A Hoodie Away From Joining The Trayvon Martin Protestor Mob
Russell Moore, the Southern Baptist Convention’s apologizer in chief, says white taxpayers are “missing the point” regarding the “Justice for Trayvon” mob. I don’t know that the Justice for Trayvon mob is actually articulating a point at all, but I’m willing to try to distill the point. Lord knows, I’d hate to miss a point being made by a mob wearing hoodies.
When I look at a mob of low information voters wearing hoodies and repetitively chanting nonsense, I am reminded of Justice Rehnquist’s dissent in Texas v. Johnson. My impression of the Justice for Trayvon gatherings is that they articulate “no essential part of any exposition of ideas” but rather are merely “the equivalent of an inarticulate grunt or roar”.
But Russell Moore insists I am missing the point. So, if I were to distill a point from the Justice for Trayvon mob, the point I get is: “Me Want Cookie!”
It strikes me that the Cookie Monster is more articulate, and certainly more to the point, than any Justice for Trayvon mob or race huckster. It also occurs to me that both the Cookie Monster and the mob want the same thing: to take something that does not belong to them, which they did not earn, and consume it.
“Me Want Cookie” is a master work in simple, direct, and honest communication of a desire. The Cookie Monster is willing to satiate this desire by executing a “smash and grab” theft of something he neither purchased nor created. The Cookie Monster needs no more justification for this action other than his own desire – that he wants the cookie is excuse enough.
It also occurs to me that, like the Justice for Trayvon mob, the Cookie Monster wishes for his very existence to be subsidized by taxpayers, but I digress.
If you dressed the Cookie Monster in a hoodie, put a cookie on a covered plate and placed it before the Cookie Monster, I am certain Cookie Monster would say “No Justice, No Peace”, smash the covered plate, and eat the cookie.
So what point am I to distill from Cookie Monster and the Justice for Trayvon mob? They want what they want, without paying for it, and won’t even say “thank you” when they take it. Their desires are sufficient enough excuse to engage in any behavior. Facts, property rights, and laws do not matter to them. Their behavior is simply childish.
It is Russell Moore who does not “get the point” that we already get the point. Begging hands and bleeding hearts always cry out for more. There is no limit to Cookie Monster’s appetite. And at some point, children must be told “enough”.
The fact is Trayvon received his justice - both on earth and before his Maker. Russell Moore should know this – Baptists do believe in Heaven and Hell.
