An open letter to Scott Pruitt and his ludicrous pig god

Fletcher Christian: (to Captain Bligh) “You remarkable pig. You can thank whatever pig god you pray to that you haven’t turned me into a murderer.”—Mutiny on the Bounty, screenplay by Charles Lederer, words spoken by Marlon Brando

EPA Administrator Pruitt, you lying son of a bitch. You are telling people that god talks to you? And your pig god tells you to trash our air, water and soil so that greedy plutocrats may become wealthier at the expense of everyone else, as species go extinct because of your heinous corruption?

“I spent a couple years just earnestly praying, asking the question that I don’t think we ask enough: ‘God, what do you want to do with me?’” You asked of god. And of course, your pig god conveniently replied that he wanted you to crap all over the natural environment.

I’m sick of your religious con. The reason the Founders separated religion and government is because of nefarious scoundrels like you. They knew the likes of you, completely devoid of integrity, would use the god scam to justify corruption, and they tried to head it off.

Lying bastards like you, invoking your pig god, remind me of the Nuclear Mafia executives who call themselves “defense contractors.” “Defense,” like “god,” is such a nice word that it can be used to deceive taxpayers into financing executive mansions and yachts. “For a couple trillion dollars I will defend you, and protect you from the evil ones” should alert listeners enough to ask “Who then, will protect me from you?”

I assume that one reason you care so little about our fellow creatures is your vast ignorance of science. You once stated, “There aren’t sufficient scientific facts to establish the theory of evolution.”

This is hogwash. My old friend Carl Sagan, who believed in science, unlike you, pointed out that there are billions of tons of fossil evidence to support evolution theory, and absolutely nothing to explain your pig god “creation theory” (which cannot be a scientific theory because it has no evidence).

I hope you are right and there is a just god, and the god created the world, and of course, the god is proud of creations upon which you are crapping. And I hope you are right and there is a hell where this god sends scum like you to burn forever in flames of vengeance for your part in destroying the natural environment.

Unfortunately, I don’t believe there are supernatural creatures that will bring justice to the likes of you. I don’t believe in the death penalty, but if anyone deserves it, it is pathetic pig god conjurers like you. If you accomplish your goals, children of the future will die horrible deaths from breathing unsafe air, drinking unsafe water, and eating unsafe food. This will make you a mass murderer, but like most who serve the plutocrats you will never face justice, because they love how you kiss their butts.

Our government is killing innocent Muslims all over the world when the worst enemies of the people are high up in our government, miscreants like you who run loose in the streets of the nation with the largest prison system, while no prisoner is as dangerous as are you.

You have replaced science with your pig god. Going against the vast majority of scientists on the planet, you reject the theory of climate change, thus, freeing up Big Carbon to pollute that which remains clean. As Milton had Lucifer falling from heaven for days after his eviction in Paradise Lost, I imagine such a chasm to explain the vastness of your profound ignorance.

I can’t imagine a more despicable degenerate than you. I am ashamed to be classified as the same species.

The best thing you could do for the children of tomorrow is leap into a meat grinder at an animal nutrition factory and become pet food, so that you could serve one useful function during your sorry existence. Even then your rotting carcass would probably poison innocent dogs and cats.
