As of the writing of this blog, there is a strange phenomenon taking place across America where individuals are dressing up as “creepy clowns” and by their very presence striking fear and horror into anyone they encounter. This is understandable as the appearance of a “creepy clown” is an implied threat. Seriously, how bizarre have we become as a people? Interestingly, the “creepy clown” craze seems to be spiking as the 2016 election cycle is peaking. Is this merely a coincidence? Or, is this a sign and opportunity to peer into our political process? What can we learn about ourselves as a nation from the “creepy clown” incidents?
First, let’s consider the headline of an article on the Guardian website dated October 16, 2016, entitled, “Clown sightings: hysteria in the US reaches a fever pitch- Police are calling for an end to evil clowns, a Clown Lives Matter march was called off, and schools are banning clown costumes while some stores are sold out.” The article goes on to state that, “People across the US are now, variously, being arrested with fright-wigs, red noses, and weapons, filmed clinging to the back of a moving bus, perpetrating hoaxes, causing school lockdowns, scaring the daylights out of people and exporting the craze to, at least, Britain and Australia.” From our perspective, this behavior is wrong and must be condemned as such. It is just not funny, and traditionally, clowns are supposed to be actors who bring fun and humor- so, this looks like just another perversion of our culture.
Do you suppose there is a cultural connection between the 2016 political election season and the appearance of “creepy clowns?” While we have no way to prove any such connection, we can, however, speculate that their appearance at this time is more than a coincidence. The Democrat Party has been increasingly debasing America’s Judeo-Christian culture for the better part of 60 years. Their Marxist, Communist, Socialist philosophy does not value nor protect a culture which values life, seeks domestic tranquility, or honors the rule of law. Those principles are inconveniences to their “intellectually arrogant” ideals which they masquerade about as “lofty.”
Specifically, as it relates to clowns and America’s culture. The Democrat Party controlled entertainment industry has built an entire horror based sub-culture which exploits the darkest notions for profit and power. America’s season of “creepy clown” sightings is an example of their latest debasement. Rather than portraying clowns as lovable circus actors, bringers of joy to children’s birthday parties, or those who cheer the sick with slapstick and magic tricks, they have reduced the clown to a psychotic character in the shadows looking for their next victim. Can you see what is happening? Clowns are just the latest headline news in a society whose culture has been debased by an onslaught of leftist propaganda spread through the many influential institutions they control.
