Last week Todd Kincannon declared himself the second coming of Jesus Christ after having been commanded by the voice of God to kill a dog as a ritual sacrifice.
Having grown up in a household with someone who had a mental illness, I’m acutely aware of how serious it is, impacting not only the life of the person who is ill, but all those connected to him or her. Mental illness, particularly what might be schizophrenia in Kincannon’s case, isn’t easy to control or live with. The killing of an animal is also cruel and disturbing
That being said, the killing of an animal is cruel and disturbing, and this is Todd Kincannon, Honey Badger of Politics. If you see karmic justice or some gallows humor in the incident, that’s okay. It’s Todd Kincannon. You don’t have to be politically correct about him. Kincannon would be the first to agree.
According to Fitsnews, Kincannon allegedly stabbed his mother’s dog to death with a pair of knives. When police arrived Kincannon announced that “…I’m the second coming of Christ and I got a command from God to do it. The last time you saw me, you didn’t recognize me, I’m Jesus. I’m not making it up. I have a sign. ”
The police took Kincannon into emergency protective custody and delivered him to Greenville Memorial Hospital pending a psychiatric evaluation.
Many of us remember Kincannon from his #TGDN hashtag in the Twitter political wars of 2013. TGDN was the Twitter Gulag Defense Network, but a lot of people thought it was Todd’s Gulag Defense Network and joined as a way to avoid being suspended by people abusing the report process.
Since those days, Todd’s behavior has been increasingly erratic. In 2015 he was involved in a domestic incident with his then wife, where he refused to let her leave his car and threatened to kill himself and her. Later that year he had a meltdown in court after which he emailed pictures of himself with a gun to his head. This resulted in the South Carolina Supreme Court putting him on inactive status and suspending his license.
In 2016, and now divorced from his wife, Kincannon stole her dog, was consequently charged for that, and then violated an order issued by the South Carolina Court of Appeals to return the dog.
In 2017, Kincannon was indicted on kidnapping and domestic battery for the domestic incident back in 2015. And that brings us to 2018 where he was facing prosecution for those felonies. And now he’s Jesus and sacrificing dogs.
There is always the possibility that he’s faking it, Todd is that kind of guy. But whether he’s mentally ill or not, Kincannon should be considered a menace to society. We should be fortunate he didn’t get his hands on a gun. Or that there wasn’t a small child at hand, rather than a dog.
Mental illness can happen to anyone, at any time. In a perfect world we wouldn’t be wasting money on a vanity parade or a task force for religious liberty. Instead we’d be putting money into research, and the treatment of, mental illness.
That being said, if you’re a Conservative Christian, you might want to start tidying up your affairs. Now that Jesus has returned, you don’t have much time.
I’m sorry I think y’all are going to have to take me to the Psych Institution, I get that. But I’ll tell you from a legal standpoint, you know, it’s in the State Constitution that God is a sovereign and I honestly think he told me to do it. –James Todd Kincannon
