Chicken Soup takes a break...

I'm currently involved in a project that will consume a great deal of time. I won't be posting until at least the end of March and possibly later. I will, if time allows check in once a week or so to check on comments.

Tally Ho!

Chicken Soup with the good citizens of Steubenville, Ohio...

A lot of people are screaming for more arrests in the Steroid Trash vs. State of Ohio gang rape case. Don't hold your breath. Either the local law enforcement community is completely beholden to the football culture, or few if any witnesses are willing to come forward because of intimidation, or because there really is insufficient evidence to make further arrests after someone thoughtfully deleted it from his cellphone. That really isn't the concern of this weblog.

This weblog is concerned with how the aggregate behavior of the public helps serial killers, mass murderers, and domestic terrorists to rationalize what they do. Scroll down a page or so in this article and consider the following sentence, "The case has completely polarized the 18,000 residents of Steubenville, Ohio, a town where high school football is taken very seriously."

Polarized?!! Really? Polarized.

The term "polarized" is generally used when there are lots of people on either side of an issue. Am I to believe that half of the good, Christian citizens of Steubenville, Ohio are actually in favor of dragging a drunken teenage girl from house to house and repeatedly raping and sodomizing her? Is that true or are they just tolerant of it as long as the victim is some out-of-towner...someone else's daughter...someone who doesn't matter who only got what she deserved for getting drunk and attending a party full of drunken titans of the gridiron? Do any of the good citizens of Steubenville, Ohio have an answer?

The relevence of this case and how it relates to domestic terrorism, etc. is simple enough for even the most inbred hicks of Stupidville to comprehend:

When a significant portion of a community displays this level of depraved indifference toward the victim and is perceived as being supportive of the abusers, it only serves to convince men like Timothy McVeigh, Eric Harris, and Adam Lanza that Americans are fundamentally mean, stupid, and callous...utterly deserving of what terrorists and mass murderers do to them. And how do such men identify communities worthy of such vitriolic rage?


No American with an iota of decency in their character would be caught dead attending a Big Red football game or any other related function because they understand that denying violent athletes the attention and blind worship they crave is the only way to get through to them.

Show every budding mass murderer and domestic terrorist in America that they're wrong.

Stay home.

Or stand around with your thumb up your ass and pretend to be shocked the next time someone slaughters a bunch of school kids.

I think it's a simple choice. What do the good citizens of Steubenville, Ohio think?

Chicken Soup with the gridiron heroes of Steubenville, Ohio High School...

My customary prediction that football players and their toadying sycophants couldn't possibly be any more depraved has once again proven false. I can't decide if this is worse than Pedophile State University or not. Unlike mass or volume, depraved indifference isn't measured in generally accepted units so it's difficult to make a direct comparison. But it's the same social institution protecting the same kind of soulless sociopaths. If these gridiron heroes don't end up doing some serious time, the world's terrorists can add one more example of the American Character to their list of reasons not to feel guilty about what they do.

Please enjoy viewing what the American Family produces these days. Listening to young men laugh about gang raping a teenaged girl is bad enough, but I could swear that I saw a young female in the background at about the ten or eleven minute mark. A few readers have suggested that some of my writing indicates a mysoginistic streak in me, but that isn't quite true. I don't hate women. I hate anyone who behaves exactly as their demographic group's worst stereotype says they behave. Because of what I saw in the video, I suspect a young woman has traded the use of her body for association with a high status group, in this case the throbbing members of the local football team. She probably isn't the least bit concerned about the victim either.

The contents of the video may or may not be of any use in a criminal trial, but it certainly leaves no doubt in the minds of every resident of Steubinville, Ohio. And those individuals can act immediately. They don't have to lynch anyone. All they have to do is take a year off. For one entire season, just don't go to any event having anything to do with the local football team. This will divide the community into those who have a conscience and those who make mass murderers and terrorists feel good about killing Americans.

If you think I'm being too harsh, just leave a comment. And remember...there are people in America who are still ignorant enough to question why Columbine is a metaphor instead of the name of a high school.
