Celebrate Diversity – Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gein Style

Multiculturalists are often praising the wonderful values and experiences to be had from embracing other ethnic traditions. We are often inundated by the likes of La Raza and other Hispanic-only groups with reminders that their ancestors, the Aztecs, were such a great people with thousand-year-old rituals and traditions no other society can claim.

That’s for sure!

The Aztecs were a people who would rip out the still-beating hearts of those they conquered and eat their flesh. The skins were then worn by the priests, including the face skin of the victims, in some bizarre rituals. They sacrificed 20,000-50,000 people yearly. They believed that [sic] The civilized world is aware that consuming the flesh from the same species causes a protein called a prion to eat away at the brain. Mad cow disease is a recent, well-known example. Well mad-people disease exists, too, by the term human cannibalism (anthropophagy), or sometimes .

They also practiced the ritual of bloodletting. Today we call this self-mutilation and it’s a mental disorder. “Neglect, abuse, and unhealthy environments are all contributing factors towards self-mutilation.” The major diagnoses for “cutters” are Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Borderline Personality Disorder. A plethora of anti-psychotic medications (Risperdol, Geodon, Trazadone, etc) are used to control the symptoms in the mental diseases.

The Aztecs believed that their god of night and destiny, Tezcatlipoca, created war to provide food and drink to the gods, in the form of human sacrifice. If you were very lucky (or unlucky, as it were), your skull might be included on the Tzompantli, a totem pole of sorts made of victims’ craniums.

Since the Aztecs were so awesome, I find myself wondering why all the pro-Hispanic groups aren’t embracing the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gein?

We all remember Jeffrey Dahmer, that loveable, friendly, cannibalistic fruitcake who ate the bodies of young men in his Milwaukee apartment during the late ’80s and early ’90s. Jeff seemed like a nice guy on the outside. He was articulate, quick-thinking, and once even convinced two police officers that the naked 14-year-old boy he was attempting to murder was really his 19-year-old boyfriend. Despite his normal facade, he was overflowing with evil under the surface, to the tune of at least 17 dead men.

Ed Gein is not as well-known, but his claim to fame as a serial killer is that he only killed two women, rather than the three generally needed to be labeled as such. He would visit local cemeteries and dig up freshly-buried corpses, take them home and skin them, or he would just cut off the body parts he needed while in the graveyard. He would wear the skins over his own body in an attempt to bring his sick necrophiliac fantasies into reality. (He was even the basis for the character of Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs, Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Norman Bates of Psycho.)

Both of these strange human specimens should be lauded by La Raza for their inherent desire to fully emulate the Aztec culture. They had the human sacrifice (read murder), victim skinning, cranium-saving, flesh-eating rituals down pat.



Either one could be the poster child for unchecked illegal immigration, especially the “Reconquista de Aztlan” crowd (those crazies who actually think white Europeans “stole their land” despite the conqueror’s rights so often used by the Aztecs against their own enemies, the relinquishment of that land by their ancestral leaders in the Guadalupe-Hidalgo treaty, and the $15 million price paid).

Perhaps the use of these two men as their picture of “multiculturalism at its best” would send a message powerful enough that United States citizens would wake up and realize exactly what we must deal with, before it’s too late.
