Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
Kansas City neoconservative talk radio station KCMO now has a lightweight paranormal program, Wendy’s Coffeehouse, that airs on Saturday mornings. The host, Wendy Garrett, covers horseshit ranging from UFO sightings to encounters with ghosts, and today her guest was Lillie Leonardi, the author of In The Shadow of a Badge: A Memoir about Flight 93, a Field of Angels, and My Spiritual Homecoming. Leonardi worked in the Office of Public Affairs for the FBI’s Pittsburgh Division, and was dispatched to the scene of Flight 93’s impact on September 11th, 2001. Ten years after the fact, she claimed to have seen angels on that day, as she recounted for Garrett’s listeners:
And in those initial moments of standing there I witnessed what I call a legion of angels present themselves on that field around the perimeter of the crash site. And, uh, like most […] had a multitude of responses to it – emotional, spiritual, and analytical – and it led me on a journey that it took quite a while to resolve in my mind. […]
All my years in law enforcement, the hardest question to answer to loved ones when they lose someone is “why”; and in those first days, although we knew why, there were a lot of unanswered questions that we would be responsible to relate to, uh, not only those families but to, uh, those in positions of power that needed to know and needed to be able to answer that long-lasting question, to this day: “why”.
Leonardi made more than one reference to her “analytical mind” during the broadcast, but kept the conversation focused on the pastel and the irrational, avoiding the analytical altogether. Notwithstanding the FBI’s ostensible responsibility to the victims and to the public to properly probe one of the most important crime scenes in American history – to determine the “why” of this perpetration of mass slaughter – Leonardi instead indulged in a rote emotionalism salved with passive mysticism as she recounted her risible 9/11 phantasmagoria, suggestively prompting the audience to experience it with her:
I remember I wanted to cry and, uh, didn’t allow myself to do it, but, oh, I kept thinking about how many mothers wouldn’t be able to say goodbye to their children that day, relating from a mother and a grandmother’s standpoint on that day. And then […] completely horrified by what you’re looking at and praying to God for His divine, uh, intervention and guidance, and, uh, as the flickers, but stronger, my attention kept being drawn to, uh, what then appeared to look like white light, like, you know, I tell people when I go to, uh, talk about the book in different locations, the brightness and the coloration of that light, um, you can’t – I can’t describe it, I’ve never seen a cloud as white, I’ve never seen anything as white and as brilliant as that light was that day. And within a matter of moments, the light turned into what I call like a mist, um, and then it parted and there were the angels, the archangels, just in military, precise military formation. I call them a legion because there were so many, there were rows and rows and rows. And as you looked, their features began to fade. Uh, from my recollection, I saw male and female facial features, I saw skin color that looked representative of our entire world.
Not only does Leonardi’s tableau appear to give God’s sanction to the coming War on Terror – one of the angels in her vision points a saber at the earth – she even draws an instructive parallel between the Roman and Zio-American empires with her evocative use of the word “legion” to describe the mustering of archangels. The account is also noteworthy, of course, for its inclusive characterization of the Almighty’s imperial army, with all the world’s races joined together to fight in this global crusade against radical Islamic terrorism. Garrett and Leonardi never got around to discussing “that long-lasting question, to this day” of the “why” of the 9/11 attacks or the outcome of the wars that followed, but did see fit to plug the author’s forthcoming book and also to pitch an angelically themed television and radio project tentatively titled AngelQuest: In Search of Messengers.
As for the angels Leonardi claims to have seen in Pennsylvania, she might do well to consider some recent remarks from Charles Giuliani on a 9/11-relevant episode of his Truth Hertz podcast:
And once you understand Yahweh to be the evil prick that he is […] you’re not following something good. You see the mindfuck? Bible dupes think they’re following something good. He’s the source of all morality, and if you’re not following Him you’re not really moral. But yet, they’ll turn around and say, “Oh, well, I know it’s not wrong to kill babies on some occasions. In fact, on some occasions it’s good to kill babies when Yahweh says to do it.” […] Do you see how the book that people are led to believe is moral is actually heinously immoral? All the evil acts that you abhor – that your conscience, if you have one, demands that you abhor – as a Bible dupe, you have to leave the door open to embrace those evils on certain occasions, because that’s all Yahweh stands for, is pure fucking evil, under the cloak of something good. […] Jesus fucking Christ. Didn’t the Apostle Paul say that the Devil comes transformed as an angel of light? Oh, yeah, absolutely, and no better example can be cited of that than Yahweh Himself. Yahweh comes as an angel of light, doesn’t He, but He’s a fucking demon, a wolf in sheep’s clothing if ever there was one. Oh, the twisted irony of it all. But that’s all you get with the Tribe, isn’t it, is twisted ironies? And that’s the ultimate twisted irony, right there. You want to avoid the cult and all the evils thereof? Stay the fuck away from the Bible. Start there!
