VIDEO: Unhinged Karen’s spittle-flecked, obscenity-laced nutty on hearing that Justice Ginsberg died. LANGUAGE WARNING

This is not the sort of thing I usually post, but it exemplifies the unhinged Left pretty well.

I picked up from twitter video someone reposted from TikTok.   Lefty Karen, is “distelthirst” (aka Sydnasty).  She is a self-described “bisexual horticulturalist with ADHD.  She seems not to be able to decide on what to call herself.

In any event, she had spittle-flecked obscenity-laced nutty on hearing that Justice Ginsberg died.

Very bad language warning, in case you have kids around or delicate ears.

This is an object lesson.

This reveals something of what fuels the rage in the streets.

I think it is driven in part by the demonic.

Dupes and demons… bad combination!

I shared this with a woman friend who fired back:

Let’s fast forward that chick 20 years from now when she had forgotten to have children or destroyed the ones she could have had. Life is pretty brutal plagued with regret at what could have been in the cold silence of a lonely descent into senility by yourself.

Sobering.  And ironic, given that this was on Tik Tok…

… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick… tick…

    I’ve said for a long time that much of what is happening is demonic. Just look at the rage, look at their faces…their eyes. The rage is so thick, so palpable that it makes one want to vomit. This my friends feels like hell has opened up it’s gates. I hate to think what it will be like if hell actually opens up its gates if this continues.

  2. WVC says:

    It’s not just that people like this feel rage and hysteria over something like a Supreme Court Justice passing away – it’s that they FILM their rage fit and then POST it for the public to view and, I suppose, praise the rage fit. That’s an extra layer of perversity.

    Anyone who thinks things will go well in November, regardless the results of the election, are fooling themselves. Folks with this type of mindset will not peacefully coexist with anyone, let alone with Christians espousing traditional values. Either they will be emboldened or enraged on November 3rd – regardless, we have more violence in our near future. Guaranteed.

  3. JustaSinner says:

    Been dealing with these people since my time at University. Over half will eventually grow up and repent. The rest will condense their hatred and rage into an evil which is palpable to the taste buds from ten feet away. They have a darkness which is frightening.

  4. I agree- it doesn’t matter who wins the election. It’s going to be crazy. The left is out for blood, and it’s either their way or no way.

    The filming and postings of reactions is precisely why I rid myself of social media. Deleted Facebook to avoid hearing liberal ex-classmates crying about how scared they are that there’s an open seat now. It’s a breeding ground for narcissism anyway. They love the attention.

  5. haydn seeker says:

    That video is so sad. God made her for more than that, and the despair and torment is almost unbearable.

  6. Pearl says:

    “Can 2020 get any worse??”

    Yes, my dear. Trump is going to win the election.

  7. jflare29 says:

    …Glad I wasn’t not the street with her. She wasn’t exactly focusing on the road…..

  8. Pearl says:

    Apparently, there are a few Twitter users calling for the country to be burned down if our President even TRIES to appoint a new justice.

    Yep, 2020 CAN get worse.

  9. Semper Gumby says:

    Sobering indeed. That woman needs help.

    The political violence of A.D. 2020 has been building for decades: the 2016 election of Pres. Trump, opposition to Gov. Walker in Wisconsin, the election of Pres. Bush and further back.

    A bit of good news: a Marshall University professor, Jennifer Mosher, after stating on video that she hoped Trump supporters all catch COVID and die, has reportedly been suspended.

    Though, another ricin package was detected by screening at the White House a few days ago (one was detected during the Obama administration).

    Back to that video, that hysterical woman screams “can this year get any…worse?!” Well, yes, things could always be worse, particularly for those whose politics are their religion.

    The National Hurricane Center, for the first time since 2005, is running out of English letters and will use Greek letters to name storms. Perhaps a hint that brushing up on NT Greek is in order.


    “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”:

    Young Indy bursts into the house, interrupts his father’s research and demands his father listen to him. Dr. Jones says, “count to twenty.” The boy pauses, sighs, “one, two, three…” Dr. Jones raises a finger, “in Greek.” “…ena, theo, tria…”

  10. MT77 says:

    at Pearl: you are right. Citizens Free Press had this link today, identifying islamists believe, to destroy America, it must be by fire: forest fires and lighting commerce on fire.
    St. Barbara, pray for us. Encourage each other to pray, fast and sacrifice more, then be more perfect in our daily duties. And somehow by living our lives and praying well with engaged evangelism, help convert the lost sheep who deserve better than what they have been given.

  11. Clinton R. says:

    This very well could an illustration of a woman in the throes of Demonic possession. The left shrieks like banshees and yells and threatens and cannot express themselves other than using vulgarities when they don’t get their way. Given the vandalizations of Catholic parishes across the nation, along with all of the violence and destruction this summer, it is very apparent Satan has drafted many useful idiots to do his bidding. St. Michael the Archangel, pray for and protect the Church and her children. May those under the influence of the devil be freed from the chains of his slavery. +JMJ+

  12. iPadre says:

    Just wait until they hear Trump won by a landslide. It won’t be pretty.

  13. Clinton R. says:

    And to answer this crazed woman’s question, yes 2020 can get much worse. Her life could come to an end at any moment and I doubt she will be in a state of grace and ready for her judgment. Then her complaints about this life will not be much of a concern.

  14. adriennep says:

    We should all be prepared to have non-stop Rosary rallies. What better weapon to take to the streets? It’ll make them pop off like fleas.

  15. exNOAAman says:

    Unless the vid is mirror image, she appears to be operating a right hand drive vehicle. Is this in a foreign country? And she cares that much? If so, I think she’s really demented.

  16. crjs1 says:

    I really hope the other drivers and pedestrians were ok! She was not focusing on the road at all…. never mind anything else but who in their right mind films themselves having a hissy fit driving? narcissism gone wild

  17. acardnal says:

    I hope no one had a MAGA bumper sticker in sight!!

  18. KateD says:

    Wait. Where have I heard this before???

    Oh yeah! I remember:


    Was that a flash of a self satisfied grin for her performance just before that goat song? lol. Wow!!

  19. KateD says:

    BTW, That’s not demonic, that’s a spoiled brat. There is a difference. A demoniac can’t help it and is embarrassed by what transpires. That girl is full of conceit.

  20. NOCatholic says:

    @WVC: Absolutely correct about the election.

    This poor woman needs prayer.

    And, we should not forget to offer prayers for the soul of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Justice of the US Supreme Court and friend of the late Antonin Scalia.

  21. Kathleen10 says:

    I also do believe the demonic is easily seen in our America. This person looks nicely dressed and groomed. She probably went to her job in some professional capacity and you’d never know a raging lunatic was just under the surface. Freaky and scary really. To record this, wow, and post it. TV in America has been sick a long time, the weirdest behavior gets you accolades, so now to our younger dolts they don’t see anything wrong with it. Does it get you noticed? Cool.
    At her age she should understand how death works. She chastised old Ruth with pancreatic cancer for not hanging in there until 2021. Yeah what a selfish thing to do, die and inconvenience someone. If RBG was a cat she used up about 30 lives before she actually went. She hung in there.

  22. Grumpy Beggar says:

    Okay, [LOL] so if some of us didn’t on KateD’s link just above, I would highly recommend it. BTW
    @KateD , @ipadre, @jflare29 : Thanks for the smiles – I was badly in need.
    @exNOAAman, thanks for the observation.

    A couple of things:

    – That may not have been the initial reaction – unless she films/records herself every time she drives around. Either way, it lends a ton of credence to what millenialmom and crjs1 allude to concerning narcissism.

    – Probably the most striking of all (to me) is that in the reaction there wasn’t one thought, one hint, one allusion to anything even vaguely resembling an afterlife, or the final things. Hence a prepared , filmed, screaming fit totally devoid of anything which might be considered to be of a condolent nature. She appeared to be blaming Justice Ginsberg for her leaving this world.

    Some families have to live with people like this – I know ! Lets remember to say a Hail Mary for families who live with members who are mentally or emotionally disturbed and/or are under the influence of demons.

    A reminder to stay weaponized ( I have great trust in the spiritual weapon which adriennep reminds us to take up).

    I still let a swear word sneak out from time to time in moments of intense frustration (not at all proud of it). Still, lets say , just for a sec, that it was a genuine full blown, out-of-control “spittle flecked obscenity laced nutty” we were watching . . . Definitely not the kind of person you would want to invite to a funeral – right ?

  23. CasaSanBruno says:

    The Left confuses their emotional incontinence expresses authenticity, strength, and conviction, etc. and all the while – as is the case with most unstable people – are oblivious to how they are perceived by the rest. Her reaction is how damned souls act: screaming, blaming, hating existence – forever.

  24. CasaSanBruno says:

    I meant to say, “the Left confuses their emotional continence with expressing authenticity…” My secretary regrets the error.

  25. iamlucky13 says:

    I can’t decide if I should be more concerned that people like that vote, or that they drive.

  26. bigtex says:

    This “bisexual” woman is being controlled by her passions. “A man has as many masters, as he has vices….lust darkens the intellect” – St. Augustine in CITY OF GOD. The oligarchs know this, and are using it as a means to control people. The same techniques were used by the Freemasons leading up to the French Revolution, and the Bolsheviks leading up to the Russian Revolution. Also used during the Weimer Republic in Germany.
    Read LIBIDO DOMINANDI – Sexual Liberation and Political Control by E. Michael Jones. In fact, read both books. You’ll never look at history the same way again.

  27. James C says:

    Meanwhile Biden campaigner Mark Shea continues to vent his spleen in incandescent rage. This morning he has condemned Amy Coney Barrett as an enemy of “brown people and immigrants”. I can only see the supernatural at work in the madness of these people.

    Earlier this week Shea had this to say:

    “ In 1980, Ronald Reagan (for whom I voted twice) famously asked, “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?”

    For some reason, the GOP is not asking that question this year. Instead, they are screaming about the swarthy bogeyman coming to kill all the white people, lying that Trump has no responsibility for the 6 million people he has infected and the 200,000 people he has killed with his criminal negligence, whistling past the grave of the economy they buried, murmuring “What Climate Change?” as the west burns to ashes and the sky outside my window turns to yellow murk, and fleecing us blind while their packs of white, racist, MAGA terrorists run loose. A nation lives in fear that they will successfully destroy our democracy in their treasonous lust for power in cooperation with our enemies.

    We are vastly worse off than we were four years ago. End this nightmare. End this Presidency. End. This. Party. #BidenHarris2020”

    Earlier in the week he called for the hammer to come down on Catholics:

    “ Last year, Amazonian Catholics whose rain forest home is being burned to ashes went to Rome to beg for pastoral care and the Eucharist. In response, the Greatest Catholics of All Time spat in their faces, cheered for the fascist who is killing them and burning their home, called them pagans, desecrated their image of Our Lady of the Amazon, and did all they could to deny them the Eucharist.

    This year, a plague these bigots have done all in their power to spread has deprived those bigots of access to the Eucharist their brothers and sisters sought, instantly struck the man who desecrated their statue of Our Lady, and now they find they live in a land whose forests are burning to ashes because they spat on Laudato Si and pursued the wisdom of the orange fool they have chosen to make their messiah.

    It is time the Church stopped letting this sect of proud, ignorant, and stupid bullies run the show and started listening to the Holy Father and the Magisterium again. God’s judgment begins with the Church. It’s about time we read the signs of the times and got a freaking clue that the Most Wrong Demographic in the Church need to be seen for the false prophets they are and rejected. How many tons of bad fruit do you need before the stench overwhelms you? Push back against these liars and blasphemers and listen to the Holy Father.”

  28. Ms. M-S says:

    Well, folks, when as a grain of sand on the shore you see a tidal wave bearing down on that shore, you can either surrender all peace of mind to hysteria about the coming devastation or surrender yourself in prayer to the One Who made the sand, shore, and wave. Especially prayer for the Karens who may otherwise be lost. Even a grain of sand can be powerful in prayer.

  29. Liz says:

    iamlucky13, good point, ha ha!

    Prayers for the scary, crazy, young lady. I hope she’s sees the light soon because this can’t be fun. :(

  30. I need to sprinkle Epiphany water on my computer and in my office after hearing all that language. Like we say in the south, “That poor girl ain’t got all her chairs pulled up to the dinner table.” Or better yet, “The lights are on but no one is home.”

  31. The Masked Chicken says:

    I must be careful how I phrase this, but there is a sense in which the Civil War never ended, because while the proximate cause of the Civil War was slavery of people, the underlying cause was slavery to self. Essentially, we are, as the saying goes, supposed to love people and use things, but the 1860’s version of the Civil War was all about loving things and using people. While we cleared up that instance of the twisted logic at the price of war, the same logic is behind contraception and abortion. People can reasonably disagree about economics, but both the 1860’s Hot Civil War and the Cold Civil War of the 1960’s (which quickly threatens to become hot) are about the same thing: the fundamental definition of a human being. Either all men are equally made, from the moment of conception, in the imago dei and worthy of respect, or they will be separated into various classes of “usefulness”, whether that usefulness is in regards to work or sex or any other function that one group can find to use another. In any case, it all amounts to slavery to self. On cannot serve God and Mammon.

    Make no mistake, this foundational twist in reason, while being a function of Original Sin, is never going to be completely resolved in this life, but it can be resisted by clear moral teaching and a civil law in conformity to that teaching. Make no mistake, we have neither in this Country, at the moment. Indeed, the law has been so interpreted as to serve means rather than ends, the rule of self over the rule of God.

    Given the cheapening of human life due to abortion and contraception, I do not see this ending easily and, sadly, without violence – a second Civil War. How many such wars will we need until people recognize that it is Christ who must rule and not our based instincts?

    Passions are running high and guns are being drawn on both sides. The situations of the build-up to war are similar: the Dred Scott decision of 1857 is, essentially, in moral terms, the same as Roe vs. Wade. The liberal South rejoiced and the Northern conservatives stewed until, with Lincoln’s election, the South felt so threatened that they went to war.

    It was all over the definition of personhood. The same dynamic is playing out, again, except that there is no easy North-South dividing line, so there will not be a War Between the States, but a War Within the States as a mostly rural vs. urban conflict.

    It did not have to be this way. It still doesn’t, but people will not cool their jets long enough for reason to prevail. The pro-life side is winning and will, eventually, win, but it will be a pyrric victory wherein millions of lives will be lost in the defense of life.

    Why are Trump and McConnell so insistent on replacing Ginsberg before the election except for the fear that they might lose? Otherwise, they could try next term (yes, I know the Senate may be lost, but, still). All they are doing is pouring gasoline on a fire.

    No Catholic who understands Church teaching can vote for Biden. That Trump feels so pushed into a corner is entirely on the hand of the USCCB, who have posted very poor guidelines for how to vote. If every Catholic and every Baptist voted according to right theology, Trump could sail to victory, but because of the confused moral and legal teachings of the last 60 years, we find ourselves, absurdly, in the middle of a pandemic on the threshold of civil unrest the likes of which this Country has not seen in 150 years.

    It did not have to be this way, but I suppose the understanding of the rules of basic personhood are beyond a people so focused on their own gratification that they never stop to look beyond themselves for answers.

    The Chicken

  32. The Masked Chicken says:

    “Let’s fast forward that chick 20 years from now when she had forgotten to have children or destroyed the ones she could have had. Life is pretty brutal plagued with regret at what could have been in the cold silence of a lonely descent into senility by yourself.”

    This may apply to this woman, but there are some people, both men and women, who, sometimes for reasons beyond their control, never married. Singleness is not a sin. It may be pitied, but it is not, necessarily, sinful. This woman has a choice. Some do not.

    The Chicken

  33. mo7 says:

    So the left didn’t really love Ruth, the woman. In a very selfish way, they liked only that she advanced the evil agenda. She will be gone and forgotten by them in short order. Ruth, that’s a sad way to die.

  34. albinus1 says:

    Semper Gumby: A classicist who used to post regularly on a classics listserv (that dates it!) to which I belonged said that he was the one consulted by the producers about the Greek in that scene. He wanted to know what date they wanted—meaning, what period *in the history of the Greek language* they were interested in—and they told him “1911,” which was date the *scene* was set. Which is why, to the puzzlement of most of the fellow classicists I know, young Indy in the scene counts in modern Greek, not ancient Greek.

  35. Semper Gumby says:

    albinus1: “What we’ve got heah, is failure to communicate.”

  36. aam says:

    I have long said advocates of abortion rights are, wittingly or unwittingly, servants of Satan. Many are beginning to agree.

  37. KateD says:


    It wouldn’t be much of a fight.

    Just cut them off from Starbuck’s (and drugs). It’d be over in a week.

    But I think we don’t need a civil war. Data is surely being collected so in November arrests can be made (watch how few are homegrown!). With out the agitators/handlers, the useful idiots will return to their momma’s basements.

    Honestly, our nation can’t afford to watch the JV team go varsity and then Pro.

  38. JonPatrick says:

    @KateD I wouldn’t be so confident. Behind the useful idiot pajama boys and their female counterparts there appears to be small but well organized groups such as BLM and Antifa. It is useful to note how small groups such as the Bolsheviks were able to take control of Russia in 1917. Of course the situation there was quite different to that in the US today, with all our problems we are nothing like pre-revolution Russia with the dislocations of a sudden industrial revolution imposed on a basically feudal country and the hugely unpopular participation in WW I that impoverished the country. But we would be well not to underestimate the enemy, especially since our side is relatively disorganized and unprepared.

    What the Chicken writes above is very interesting. The situation over which the current Civil War is being fought is of course quite different from the one of 1861 but as he notes it springs from the same source, the Original Sin of America that although we wrote in our Declaration that all men were created equal we compromised that for pragmatic reasons. Today we have at least removed the legal barriers to racial equality but at the same time have created new ones for the unborn and coming soon, older people and perhaps those with disabilities, anyone not considered useful to a utilitarian world. It is ironic that this battle is being fought under the banner of “racism” even though what they are fighting for (abortion rights) negatively affects minorities disproportionately.

  39. Passepied says:

    Chicken – “Why are Trump and McConnell so insistent on replacing Ginsberg before the election except for the fear that they might lose?”

    In fairness, until her replacement is seated, the potential remains for a deadlock on any issue coming before the Court. This was not so much an issue in 2016, a relatively ordinary election year; however, this year the Court faces an oncoming wave of litigation over the election itself. If they come up split four-to-four on whether signature verification is required for (e.g.) remote voting, or whether districts are required to allow in-person voting at all, then a patchwork of lower-court rulings would remain in effect and arguably only add to the lack of popular confidence in the election results. Of course, it’s not necessarily a strong argument and I don’t know that I would refer to a constitutional crisis myself, but it is a point to be made.

    I like your thoughts on the American civil wars. Other civil wars have focused on ethnic and economic divisions (I’m not sure if many have not, actually) but the American disposition seems to include a special knack for claiming the high ground on some deep question of humanity.

  40. SKAY says:

    We are now in a spiritual war with those who want to totally remove true Christianity from within this country. Obviously there are reasons for that.
    Lucifer has no problem choosing sides when it comes to evil — one of those being the evil of abortion. It is clear he has unleashed his demons to help preserve it. He knows who will take the thirty pieces of silver and turn their backs on Our Lord and Savior.

    Jesus told us to love our enemies but He also drove the money changers out of
    the Temple and He was not very nice about it. We can pray that those that follow
    Lucifer will realize their mistake and change but there can be NO compromise with
    evil and those who promote it.

    Re: Indy, I have to say that he’s exactly the kid who would be taught Classical Greek and Koine, but who would insist on using Modern Greek if his dad didn’t specify. He wants to talk to the people on the ground, and especially to girls. :)

    Re: Karen, I would agree that she’s putting on a performance. She has real rage and no objection to having a tantrum, and her bad attitude is certainly demonic. But she’s putting it out for the audience to get her likes and shares, and doesn’t care if she hits anybody else’s car in the pursuit of showing herself to be a correct feelings leader.

    Re: being single, it’s officially a “state of life.” Plenty of saints have been single, and lived lives that were useful and satisfying without being unchaste, or desperately advertising availability before their online friends even know them. But TikTok Karen is still living the life of a mean girl in a high school clique, poor woman.

    There’s a scene on that very topic in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” but it was removed and left on the cutting-room floor…

    Young Indy is in town one afternoon and sees a girl strolling along holding a parasol on her way to purchase yarn. Young Indy knocks the dust off his shorts, straightens his bandana and, approaching her, doffs his Boy Scout hat. “M’lady. Plutarch once said, ‘The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.'” Young Indy pulls out a flint and steel and attempts to light a fire in front of the store. The young lady, initially intrigued, rolls her eyes and enters the store.

    The next afternoon, down by the river, the young lady is languidly strolling the riverbank, occasionally reading from a book of poetry or a cookbook. Young Indy approaches, wearing a coat and tie, hair neatly combed, a Missal (Baronius or Angelus) tucked under his arm. He tosses a freshly skinned wildebeest at her feet. “M’lady. The Psalmist says, ‘I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine.'” There is swooning and plighting of troth. The scene ends with a grinning violinist slowly emerging from the reeds at water’s edge.

    Well, good thing Steven Spielberg skipped that scene and went directly to Indy on a ship off the coast of Portugal getting punched in the face.
