There’s a lot I’d love to write about today, but I’ve decided to keep things light. Yesterday, I read a hilarious story about a batshit wingnut named Rick Wiles. I’ve written about him before. He comes up with some extremely ludicrous theories that are so ridiculous they’re funny.
If you’ve been following the news, you probably know about multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who hob-knobbed with the likes of Donald Trump, Prince Andrew, and Bill Clinton. Epstein is now deceased. He apparently killed himself in his New York jail cell on August 10th. Prior to his death, Epstein was in jail for sex trafficking and molesting girls. A lot of people in high places were concerned about his arrest and what it might mean for them, personally. Consequently, in the days following Epstein’s apparent suicide, some people hypothesized that perhaps he was murdered by someone who wanted him to keep quiet.
Rick Wiles, who is known for his insane, right wing, Christian video stupidity on his show, TruNews, recently said on camera that he thinks Mr. Epstein is alive and has received a new identity. He claims Epstein is in a new country, has turned his life around and no longer molests children, and has had a “face transplant” or even a “head transplant”. Say what?
When I read about this foolishness yesterday, I couldn’t help but remember an infamous episode of The Golden Girls in which Blanche, Rose, and Dorothy have had their heads frozen to be implanted on new bodies in the future. Behold…
I don’t think Mr. Epstein is “alive and well”. I think he’s dead, and no one will ever be victimized by him again. Unfortunately, his victims may never get the closure they seek. In the days before his death, Epstein signed a new will that will make it harder for to get access to his money… $577 million. I’m sure this case will be tied up in court for a long time, which will bring more pain and suffering on his victims. But at least no other girls will be harmed by him, so that is a small comfort.
In Rick Wiles’ defense… at least he finally acknowledges that Trump is crazy…
I think we’re all going to hell in a handbasket.
