Wingnuts Are Furious About … Not Killing That Killer Whale

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

The Michael Jackson theme song was epic.Are the Christian wingnuts pretending something in the news is offensive to the Jewish Bible they stole from the Jews? Yes they are! Today’s grave offense to the long-dead local deity of the Ancient Hebrews is that imprisoned whale who keeps losing his shit and killing his prison guards. You know what would teach that fucking orca a lesson?

Some group of closeted homosexuals called the “American Family Association” wants you to know that, as always, the way you deal with any problem — especially a problem caused by your own morally repugnant behavior — is to murder the thing that’s giving you a hard time. Try it on your kids!

What about the term “killer whale” do SeaWorld officials not understand?

If the counsel of the Judeo-Christian tradition had been followed, Tillikum would have been put out of everyone’s misery back in 1991 and would not have had the opportunity to claim two more human lives.

Or, you know, maybe don’t enslave your fellow intelligent mammal species, as a start, and then just blow up all the motherfucking “Sea Worlds” and any zoo that isn’t run like the San Diego Wild Animal Park — thousands of acres where the creatures can roam free and hump in the sun, etc.

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Brendan M.

    Go vegan/vegetarian or STFU.

  • Gopherit

    We have to have the biggest barbecue ever……as an example to the rest of these orcas.


  • Darkness

    You know what would teach that fucking orca a lesson?

    Letting the Japanese serve it as sushi across the greater Tokyo area?
    (Since it’s not the last of its kind I’m sure the act will lack a certain satisfaction for them. But I bet they’d still be on board.)

  • memzilla

    But Tillikum already “swims with the fishes.”

  • pampl

    No, I’m pretty sure enslaving other intelligent mammals is OK in the Judeo-Christian tradition. The problem is that after the Death Orca killed someone it was supposed to be stoned to death or castrated or forced to pay the family of the victim a goat in reparations or something. Or maybe that’s what happens to the master and the slave just gets recalled, I forget.

  • Carrie_Okie


  • FMA

    The American Family Association just got aroused because they heard killer whale tastes like chickenhawk.

  • Way Cool Larry

    It is clearly our god-given duty to kill all animals that god made to kill other other animals

  • jodyleek

    So, the Judeo-Christian counsel tradition thingy just stone cold drop kicks Jesus and his “Turn the other cheek” thingy out the door?

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    Yes, well, if the “counsel” of the Judeo-Christian tradition had been followed 2000 or so years ago, moranic hypocrites like the AFA would have been flogged, stoned to death, and then fire-roasted until properly crispy.

  • bureaucrap

    Ship him to Guantanamo bay, and let him swim before a military tribunal! But not without airboarding him first, to get information about the other orcas.

  • freakishlystrong

    You know who else wanted to put orcas out of everyone’s misery?

  • madtowngooner

    You know what else is black and white and kills people indiscriminately? That’s right: Barack Obama! It all comes round to that one frightening truth.

  • Trace

    And the verse these nutballs are referring to specifically says you should stone an offending OX. Whales are not oxen. Unless.. unless you SHOULDN’T always take the Bible literally? But… but then you..

    Oh, no. Oh, OW. My brain. Save me, cognitive dissonance!

  • TGY

    Whose constituent is the whale, anyway?

  • Prommie

    When do we get to start stoning harlots?

  • Katydid

    And if the Queen had balls she’d be king. Get over it, shit happens.

    Were we supposed to poke out the damned whale’s eye?

  • Aurelio

    Today’s grave offense to the long-dead local deity of the Ancient Hebrews is that imprisoned whale….

    Sorry, Ken, I lost you.

    From the Jewish bible:

    “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” –Genesis 1:21

    That’s YHWH, the ancient Hebrew deity talking. Where does He say not to imprison them?

  • Oldskool

    Where would we be without ancient war manuals to guide us.

  • Aurelio

    Wait a minnit! Is Orca the one who is offending YHWH by killing ppl?

  • V572625694

    Last week Reihann Salon or whatever that wingnut’s name was on Bill Maher, and he ranted on and on about how tasty whale meat is, “like prime rib and bacon all in one,” and he seemed to be arguing that that made it okay to kill whales. This is why “conservatism,” as currently configured, is so hateful: it’s just selfishness with an almost transparent veneer of rational thought.

    Another disappointment was that Olivia Wilde was pretty stupid. Which makes her perhaps even more desirable than was already the case.

  • Trace

    I think the AFA has this all wrong.

    My pastor said that the orca was God’s punishment for taking prayer out of schools and tolerating gay people.

  • SayItWithWookies

    The passage that moron was quoting from Exodus referred to what happens when your ox gores someone to death. It says nothing about whales. That’s a pretty darn liberal interpretation for a fundamentalist — next thing you know, “love thy neighbor as thyself” doesn’t apply only to the people living next to you, and what do you have? Chaos! Anarchy! I’ll bet this radical apostate interpretation of The LORD’s invariant scripture also concludes that the earth wasn’t made on August 23, 4004 BC, either.

  • 4tehlulz

    >If the counsel of the Judeo-Christian tradition had been followed,

    Last time I checked, that only applied to ox that tasted sweet human blood.

    Whales are not ox; therefore, fuck off Christards.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    [gets out bible]

    Let’s see. killer whales… killer whales… killer whales… Nope nothin’.

    Better try “orcas,” being the Holy Word of the Lord, it prolly uses the proper term. Orcas… orca… orcas… nope, nothin’ again. The bible says doodley squat about either orcas or killer whales.

    Honest, it’s like those silly evangelists just make up whatever shit they like and say it’s the Word of God. Huh, who knew?

  • Sleeves

    [re=523703]Oldskool[/re]: An ancient children’s primer, I’d thought. Several versions of some ancient Palestinian propaganda collected for the New stuff.

  • Aurelio

    [re=523709]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Ah, I am so clueless. The Biblical justification is from Exodus Exodus 21:28, quoted here:

    Says the ancient civil code of Israel, “When an ox gores a man or woman to death, the ox shall be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, but the owner shall not be liable.”

    So we are supposed to stone the whale, but not eat it, and Sea World can’t be sued? Now I get it! But how do you go about stoning a whale?

  • Extemporanus

    [re=523696]madtowngooner[/re]: The American “Thinker” shares your line of “reasoning”:

    “Standing by the side of the pool, struggling Americans have also been taken off-guard — prodded by Obama, the nation is learning a hard lesson by observing the inborn ideological instincts of a voracious politician. The lesson? As the witnesses of Dawn Brancheau’s death can attest, at the spur of the moment, political animals can “flip out, going as fast as they [can]” and using oppressive policy to thrash even those who falsely believe that ‘Yes We Can’ swim with killer whales.”

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Their point is, well, if they’d only put the killer whale out of everyone’s misery after the first time it killed a human, those next two humans would still be alive, which is VERY TRUE. And that’s where logical thinking must stop. No way we could have saved that first human. That whale was determined to kill somebody the minute we brought it in.

  • thesheriffisnear

    How can anyone advocate the murder of Whales, the Pandas of the sea? I don’t recall anyone wanting to off Butterstick!!!

  • Capitol Hillbilly

    Fred Neil was right. Let all the dolphins and whales loose. In fact, close every zoo – there is now a thing called “teevee” where Junior can see an elephant.


    Sarah Palin says that Jesus wants orcas to eat trainers, because Jesus made trainers out of meat.

  • Serolf Divad

    Exodus…. hmmmm…. isn’t that the old law? I can never remember what parts of the Bible contemporary Christians have declared null and void by JESUS, AMEN, and what parts are still in order.

  • Aurelio

    That whale was determined to kill somebody the minute we brought it in.

    It’s a killer whale. The name says everything. That’s what they are supposed to do. That’s what YHWH intended. Anyone who is pissed off at Orca is pissed off at God. And God doesn’t like it if you are pissed off at him. It pisses him off.

    Little known TRUE FACT:

    Tillikum was kicked out of the Orcan Army for being gay, though he swears to this day that his presence at a no-blowholes-barred podbang was just a fluke.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    Stupid AFA doesn’t realize it would cost too much money for Sea World enterprises to kill their gravy train. Who the hell is going to go to Sea World to see dolphins & some stupid high school kids dance around in fish costumes?

    Don’t get the mistaken impression that Sea World is pro-animal; they are just pro-profit. You’d think the dumb fucks @ AFA would know that.

  • Aurelio

    [re=523742]norbizness[/re]: Got it. That big stone at the end is just the thing for stoning a whale.

  • proudgrampa


  • mumblyjoe

    [re=523720]Aurelio[/re]: Right, but it seems like the really important thing is the not-suing, not the whale-killing, at any rate.

    Besides, if we’re getting really biblical, then the whales started it, when the whales started it, with Jonah. Imprisoning them now is just us getting extended revenge on them. After all, Exodus 20 says, “for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me”

    Life must be exhausting for a reactionary. The TV is a devil box filled with sex, drugs, violence [though this is not so bad], brown people and gayness. Any show without these explicit elements are just CODED communist sedition. Music makes people fornicate.. Your neighbors are always doing things you find objectionable. Hollywood is basically shoving its dick down your throat right now, by existing (or by tricking you into seeing movies). Education is elitist and communist at the same time. Weather is immoral, unless it’s being directed by God. Being Christian today is exactly the same as being a slave 200 years ago. And not nearly enough things or people that deserve to die are being actively murdered, except fetuses, who are too much.

    Guys, have you ever considered that people look down on you not ideologically, but because you’re personally insufferable?

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=523737]Serolf Divad[/re]: Oh, it’s easy — anything ridiculous or outdated is Old Covenant (which really means one of the many Old Covenants, but nevermind), unless it’s also mentioned in the New Testament, like the homophobic rantings of that pervy charlatan bully Saul of Tarsus, in which case it still holds. And if there’s anything that’s strictly Old Covenant that you still want enforced, then Jesus the Hippie mentioned that not one jot of the Law will be overturned.
    And if those rules seem inherently contradictory, there’s an ultimate law to follow: It’s not The Bible that’s contradictory, it’s your flawed, puny understanding of it that sees contradictions in the ineffable wisdom of God’s Plan. And if you say “well, why doesn’t God just tell us his plan and make everything perfectly clear,” the rule is that God wants you to come to him by faith and not by evidence. And then if you ask why, in that case, the flawed and self-contradictory Bible is held up as evidence for God’s existence, the answer is, “shut up.”

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Aren’t we completely overlooking another factor here, folks? Thousands of people have paid Tilly a visit, and yet remain alive. Tilly chose not to kill them. Seems his killing preferences are only for those who either try to swim with him, or stand next to the tank and tell him what to do. (I’d also venture to add here that the trainer who was killed died what she loved doing, knew the risks, etc….but…..nah….)

  • Monsieur Grumpe

Thy neck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men. Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.”

  • doxastic

    [re=523706]V572625694[/re]: Salam has to be lying–whale meat is renowned for its nastiness–it reportedly has a funky oiliness, and the texture is off-putting. This is why there are ,a href=””>public advertising campaigns in Japan to push whale meat–the Japanese whaling industry isn’t responding to some sort of wild public demand. He’s probably just being paid to shill for a dying industry, and as a bonus gets to appear edgy and contrarian.

  • JMP

    [re=523737]Serolf Divad[/re]: Basically, to the fundies the gospels mean that they get to pick and choose which commands from the Old Testament they want to ignore and which to say are out. So avoiding pork, dairy and meat together, and mixed fabrics are all out; hating the gays, commanding women to be second-class citizens, and demanding parents abuse their children are all in. The justifications for slavery were in, back in the day, but now that they at least want to pretend not to be racist they’re ignored.

  • V572625694

    [re=523801]doxastic[/re]: Salam seemed like a very smart, very funny man, but his teevee personna is too intense.

    That whale is a serial killer. He doesn’t even eat them. He just kills for sport, stripping them naked and tossing them about like a plaything. The FBI should check his handwriting against the Zodiac Killer.

    [re=523825]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Agreed on both points (David & Jonathan whose love was “better than the love of women”; Paul should have just kept persecuting the Christians instead of wading in, writing a bunch of pissed-off letters, and wrecking it from within.)

    Also, read the Gospel of John sometime. John is a dear, but sounds pretty Light in the Loafers. He refers to himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved” and “the disciple who laid his head on Jesus’ breast”, etc. As Jesus was dying on the cross, he “gave” John & his mother to each other, as family (“Woman, behold your son; Son, behold your mother.”)

    [re=523801]doxastic[/re]: Ate it once at a wedding outside Nagoya. Didn’t know what it was until after eating it, otherwise probably would have skipped it. It was like a cross between raw squid (which I’m rather fond of) and raw crocodile (probably what dinosaur tasted like before the popularization of fire by Adam and Eve). I wouldn’t go crazy for it. But it wasn’t heinous, just odd. The Japanese guests went berserk for it. End all and be all for them. But they also love falsely extravagant, overly expensive labels of shitty American liquors too, so there’s that.

    Whales are amazing animals when alive and swimming and socializing and singing and what all whale stuff they do, and that’s kinda my final notion on the subject. Eating them is a fucking crime.

    Before the wingnuts reacted, the British humor (humour?) site NewsBiscuit did the story as a joke:

    That Orca movie scarred me for life! I even hated penguins after watching that damn movie.

    [re=523703]Oldskool[/re]: What does Sun Tzu in his Art of War sayeth about killing of hoomans by whales or other large sea mammals? Nothing. And Myamoto Mushashi’s samurai Book of Five Rings? Damn, nothing. (Maybe sushi wasn’t invented then). We need Douglas Adams to weigh in on this.

    [re=523754]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Yes. The AFA are undoubtedly pro-profit, anti-socialist, pro-gun killing capitalists. Go Business! But they are too dumb to understand whale snarkery. The Orca simply graphically demonstrated the effects of corporate policy and the financial industry on the rest of us proletariat, i.e. its is shaking the life out of us, killing us, and eating us. The Orca got fed up with all the bullshit metaphors, the obfuscation, and lying of global corporatism, and took matters into its own jaws and fins, by making a statement by killing the white blond woman. Whales are Marxists! Go whales!
