The Ultimate American Death
According to a Reuters news article, "Police called to a Long Island man's house discovered the mummified remains of the resident, dead for more than a year, sitting in front of a blaring television set. The 70-year-old Hampton Bays, New York, resident, identified as Vincenzo Ricardo, appeared to have died of natural causes. Police said on Saturday his body was discovered on Thursday when they were called to the house over a burst water pipe.
"The home's low humidity had preserved the body. Officials could not explain why the electricity had not been turned off, considering Ricardo had not been heard from since December 2005. Neighbors said when they had not seen Ricardo, who was diabetic and had been blind for years, they assumed he was in the hospital or a long-term care facility." The poor old man apparently couldn't even see the screen of the TV he died in front of...although, on second thought, maybe that was a mercy in disguise.
An old blind man dies alone in front of his television, the only company he has probably known for many years. America took away his family and his health (diabetes is largely caused by the crappy American diet) and his dignity, and left him with the boob tube instead.
No one cared about him enough to even check on him to see if he's all right, and so for a year and a half his corpse sat rotting away on the sofa. A year and a half of the Simpsons and Anna Nicole Smith and Britney Spears and blacks bouncing balls, and, mentioned almost in passing, the madness of a stupid and pointless war fought in the interest of Israel and oil.
In the balmy spring and the heat of summer, in the crisp air of autumn and the snows of winter, the corpse of an old man sat there mummifying, unknown, unnoticed, forgotten long before he died. Vice Ricardo is a metaphor for White America. We live in front of the TV and we die in front of it.
This is one part of the reality that our ageing white population in America faces. If we do not do something about this living hell into which the Jews have cast us, while we still can, then all of us are going to end our lives in some horrible way like this. The crumbling corpse of Vince Ricardo is symbolic of White America. We, too, are mummifying. We're all dead in front of the television, it's just that our bodies don't know it yet.
