because dilbert is obsessed with israel and, apparently, a party that has all of 13 seats in the knesset.

it’s like me getting perturbed by a faction in peru.

Is Peru a nuclear-armed state with armageddonism at the centre of its existence?

dilbert, fundamentalist/evangelical christians are far more invested in old testament eschatology.

in fact, christianity has a much more 'active' conception of history. they believe that actions in this life/world can bring about divine outcomes.

jewish theology is much more 'passive' about the coming of the messiah, armageddon, etc.

america's right-wing christians are far more consequential to the world picture than israel. but you aren't anywhere near as obsessed with them.

russia is right now waving the nuclear threat around on a daily basis, backed up by their orthodox church patriarch. he has even been publicly criticised by the pope for this.

both russia and america are, in many ways, rapidly approaching a sort of christo-fascism from different directions.

but it's always israel with you. there's a word for that, you know.

Neither Russia nor America have the same level of pre-biblical nuttery at the centre of their existence by any stretch.

When America elects members of the Death to Unbelievers party to Congress get back to me.

I bring bad news for you, dilbert. We already are.

Republican rhetoric is increasingly militant, ominous, boisterous of Christian extremism, down the whackadoodle conspiracy rabbit hole, and it can always continue sliding ever rightward while a number of their 'moderates' artfully ignore it.

"I believe in Jesus, guns, and babies."
"We're going RINO hunting!" (republicans-in-name-only)

it's also highly amusing to claim that america, of all places, didn't have religious nuttery in the centre of its existence, or as part of its DNA.

you know ... that place settled ... by religious fundamentalists who were so extreme and pious in their beliefs that europe practically kicked them out. not all colonies were religious communities, of course, but new england puritanism is surely up there with zionism for zaniness.

like literally half of the eastern seaboard states are named after quakers and nonconformists. lmfao.

"We're going RINO hunting!" The ultra-conservatives are coming for our conservatives and Dilbert doesn't care.

Without any further commentary on my part, the speech certainly is the thing that stands out the most to me in that movie. I'm glad it was put in.
