In case you missed it, Louisiana Governor and GOP Presidential candidate Bobby Jindal made great strides towards claiming “World’s Worst Human” status yesterday as he lashed out at the Oregon college shooter’s father, claiming that he was a deadbeat dad and that’s why his child shot up a school.
Even though those assertions were baseless and vile, in true Jindal fashion, he’s standing by his disgusting rhetoric.
Right Wing Watch reports:
Jindal rehashed his “politically incorrect” response to the shooting in an interview with Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson yesterday, adding that the separation of church and state is also to blame for mass murder.
“We fill our culture with garbage, now we’re reaping the result,” he said. “We’ve got evil in our midst. It’s not about taking away law-abiding citizens’ gun rights, it really is about going after the cultural decay, the moral rot we see in our society. The left wants to take God out of the public square. We are now reaping the consequences of that.”
Mickelson was in agreement that “cultural rot” is the culprit behind mass shootings, but asked Jindal if there is anything politicians and elected officials can do to fix “the moral culture caliber” of Americans.
Jindal replied that indeed there is, and that all it takes is a president talking “unapologetically” about his faith.
“What a president can do and a candidate can do is one, publicly call for a time of prayer and spiritual renewal and unapologetically talk about our faith in the public square,” he said. “I’m a Christian and I’m not embarrassed to talk about that.”
Let’s recap for a second: Cultural decay causes gun violence. Cultural decay is caused by separation of church and state. The solution to this cultural decay is for the President of the United States to use his position to evangelize to the masses. (Who needed the Establishment Clause, anyway?) The resulting mass prayer will solve all of our problems and we can hold hands in a circle and sing Kumbaya.
You can read this, along with Jindal’s other useless proposals, in the book he’ll inevitably write after losing the primary to an even more right-wing politician.
