Man Arrested And Jailed For Nonviolent Antiabortion Protest In Suburban Atlanta Georgia!

Robert Roethlisberger, Jr. was charged with disorderly conduct and released after posting TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ON BOND! Please note that this arrest happened in Gwinnett County, Georgia, one of the most conservative (including pro – life) congressional districts in the country. So how did this happen? Well, the Atlanta Journal – Constitution stated in an oped piece that described how the loathsome thrice divorced family values advocate Bob Barr lost a Congressional race to John Linder (Barr chose to challenge Linder rather than run in his own district because redistricting added a few thousand blacks to his district … an even more conservative Republican without Barr’s history of race – baiting ran in his place and won easily) that it was a race between the “movement conservatism” of Barr – the type that Cobb County used to represent before a large influx of black, Hispanic, and liberal white residents from Fulton and DeKalb moved into the county – and the “big business conservatism” of John Linder. Such was why the national and state Republican Party backed Linder but Charlton Heston and other true believers backed Barr (see this link from Atlanta BUSINESS Journal).

And so we have the context: big business is what rules in Gwinnett. This fellow’s pro – life display was offending Christmas shoppers on Black Friday, the most critical day of the year in retail, at the Mall of Georgia, the most critical retail establishment for the Gwinnett County economy. So the destruction of the innocent unborn, cold depraved Holocaust style murderous sacrifices to Molech, took a backseat to the almighty dollar in Gwinnett County.

Which, of course, makes Gwinnett County no different from any other place in metro Atlanta. The first thing that I noticed after moving to the Atlanta after living in rural south Georgia and only somewhat more urban north Florida is our massive concentration of strip clubs. Right in the center of the Bible Belt. Now from my time in north Florida, I know that even with the courts claiming that pornography falls under first amendment protection, a city can prevent even so much as a topless bar from opening if it wants to. So why are these establishments open even well into the religious conservative suburban landscape? Well, Atlanta’s dirty little secret is that the reason why DESPITE having to compete with places where gambling is legal like Las Vegas and Atlantic City it is still a top 5 destination for convention and business travel has nothing to do with our museums, sporting events, amusement parks, arts scene, etc. but rather our notorious strip club scene, which is rivaled only by areas that have much larger populations.

Without the convention scene the Atlanta economy would dry up and blow away overnight. That is why NONE of the local or state “family values” leaders so much as lifts a finger or utters a word against any of those establishments so long as they do not open too close to a school or church. The only exception that I am aware of was a lone city councilman who mostly unsuccessfully (though he did win a few battles) tried to organize black churches against the clubs in response to a rash of violent crimes that they brought into their communities. And yes, this fellow was defeated in his last race for political office.

So pro – lifers and other social conservatives, the reason why your agenda is going nowhere is about MONEY. Even after the Reagan Revolution and the rise of the Moral Majority, the Christian Coalition, etc. that the real leaders of the GOP has remained the same: the Wall Street Republicans, which, according to the title that Colin Powell famously gave himself, are the ROCKEFELLER Republicans. The Wall Street or main street or country club or Rockefeller or whatever you call them Republicans have ALWAYS been socially liberal. In the 50s and 60s they supported civil rights. In the 70s and 80s they supported abortion. Now they support gay marriage and illegal immigration. And how interesting that in order for the “Reagan Revolution” to succeed, he had to get none other than George H. W. Bush to be his running mate. Said Bush succeeded him as president to be followed by his son 8 years later. And if Pastor Chuck Baldwin is to be believed (read The Bush – Clinton Dynasty), Bill and Hillary Clinton are extensions of that circle. (Why, for instance, did Hillary Clinton go to New York of all places to run for Senate? She is originally from Illinois and lived most of her adult life in Arkansas. Bill Clinton set up shop there too, and even the media did not even pretend that it was to be near his wife who as senator spends most of her time in Washington anyway. Well suffice it to say that the United Nations is in New York, and the reason for that is because that is where the Rockefellers wanted it to be.)

So who are the religious right leaders that know about this situation and mislead their evangelical Christian charges to follow the Rockefeller Republican agenda? Pretty much all of them. But to single one out, why not start with the billionaire Pat Robertson? He is very close to the Bush family and has now endorsed Rudy Giuliani, who lest we forget before becoming mayor of New York and enacting a policy that grotesquely violated the civil liberties of New York’s black citizens (including but not limited to gunning them down in the streets) was the #3 figure in the Ed Meese Justice Department in the Reagan – Bush administration.

So on black Friday Robert Roethlisberger, Jr. gave the good Christians in Gwinnett County a brief view of the true identity of the god that the area first worships – mammon – and was tossed into jail for his trouble. And this goes back to the universalist rain dance that Georgia’s governor Sonny Perdue led a couple of weeks back. As stated in my comment on it Sonny Perdue: More Republican Universalism, I have not been led to pray that our drought – stricken area receive rain. Perhaps one should not make anything of that. And the same Robert Roethlisberger, Jr. that was arrested for making a pro – life demonstration at the Sonny Perdue universalism rain witch doctor seance was the one arrested for exposing the mammon idolatry of Gwinnett County, a Sonny Perdue stronghold (in more senses of the word than one). Perhaps one should not make anything of that either.
