Big statue of satan to be unveiled in...Detroit?
When I saw this story this morning I thought it had to be satire: A group calling themselves the Satanic Temple announced that it would unveil a statue of their impression of Satan this Saturday. And this grand event was to take place in the Democrat stronghold city of...Detroit.
There was a photo with the article: Seems the statue doesn't just depict a goat-headed apparition, but puts on the final touch by also depicting two children gazing up in wonder at the goat's head.
You'd have to see it to believe it.
Oh, and the press release says the thing “is not only an unparalleled artistic triumph, but stands as a testament to plurality and the power of collective action.”
Now I'm getting even more convinced this is a spoof, since "collective action" is often a euphemism for socialism: Detroit has been ruined by the "power of collective action," as expressed in political corruption by the ruling party, unparalleled percentages on welfare, corrupt government unions and the power of manufacturing unions to cripple and ultimately kill companies. So I thought "this is just too spot-on."
And it still may turn out to be a clever hoax. But if so it fooled a local Detroit TV station. Oh, wait,..that's it: Probably Faux News, cuz they're always riling up viewers with goofy stories like this.
Wait...you say it wasn't Fox? That the piece appeared on the web page of...[gasp!] a CBS station? Whoa! But of course most of us out here in flyover country don't believe a word CBS broadcasts, so you'll just have to decide for yourself.
Meanwhile here's the link. Click at your own risk, cuz it's a pretty ugly statue.
