Not long ago, D/S/Cs were careful not to expose their true agenda, to reveal their true totalitarian designs, the depths of their moral depravity and lunatic hatred. From time to time, one of the self-imagined elite would make a gaffe—say what they really meant or wanted out loud–but the D/S/C media propaganda department was careful to downplay or conceal those occasional outbursts of honesty. If the gaffe was particularly egregious, some even made pseudo apologies amounting to telling us we were too unsophisticated, even stupid, to understand what they meant to say.
Then came Trump.
Say what you will about Donald Trump, he so deranged them by his mere existence, D/S/Cs tore off their pseudo-democratic masks and revealed who they really are. The only question now is are they sufficiently stupid, sufficiently evil, to push Normal Americans into outright revolt, not to restore “democracy,” which is D/S/C speak for a despotic tyranny of the majority, but to once again embrace American’s founding principles, our representative, constitutional republic?
It may not be too late, but it’s not looking good for a peaceful return to the Constitution and rule of law. What might push Normal Americans beyond their limits? We begin with Robert Zimmerman at Behind The Black:
It has all been a lie
Since day one of the epidemic practically every policy decision by government and the largely Democratic academic community has been based on lies. And those lies caused the initial response to COVID to be wrong and misguided. It was panicked, thoughtless, based on very flawed models rather than the actual data, and did far more harm than good. The later and continuing mandates requiring the COVID shots and masks to keep one’s job, to fly on airplanes, to cross borders, to even go to school or attend public events, are even more insane, based not on the now long-known facts but on lies and fear and the urge by those in power to wield that power corruptly.
It is long past time for everyone to stop buying into these lies.
And it appears the public is finally waking up to these lies. This realization, that the Wuhan panic was based largely on lies, is one of the main reasons these power-hungry politicians are facing larger and larger protests worldwide, protests that are also becoming increasingly determined and defiant. The public is growing heartily sick of the lies they have been fed for the past two years, and are angry at the damage it has done, to their friends, their neighbors, their families, their children, and to themselves.
They want the lying to stop. And they want it to stop, now.
And if that lying doesn’t stop, the protests will only grow worse, and more determined. Power-hungry politicians, especially Democrats, had better realize this truth soon. If they don’t, they are not going to like the violent outcome that is sure to follow.
At least some D/S/Cs are discovering “The Science” has, miraculously and overnight, changed, and they’re backing away from Covid theater, but many refuse to release their child hostages—our children—in public schools. They made the mistake of thinking American’s willingness to adopt seemingly sane public health measures for a time meant they would submit to any outrage for all time. They’re not backpedaling for scientific or constitutional reasons, but because their internal polling must be far, far worse than their media propaganda arm is revealing, and they realize unless they at least try to appear a little less crazy, it’s not going to be an red avalanche in November, but a deep red massacre. We’re now learning from our Canadian cousins “freedom” is evil and dangerous to “democracy,” as Tom Knighton explains:
The word ‘freedom’ is one of the most important concepts in Western society. We learned long ago that tyranny wasn’t a winning strategy and have structured our governments in such a way to try and maximize freedom for the individual.
At least, that was the theory.
But here they’re trying to demonize the idea of freedom by associating it with ‘far-right’ groups. They want people to legitimately be afraid to advocate for freedom out of fear they’ll be labeled as such.
Control the use of language and you can successfully control a people.
And they’re being kind of ugly about it, too.
Weakness is strength, black is white, up is down, ignorance is knowledge and freedom is tyranny. Canada’s rulers have no Constitution, which means they’re just a bit ahead of our self-imagined elite in their despotic designs. Living in Heinlein’s Crazy Years, Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker explains our newest terror threat: us:
The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence.
Translation: The “threat actors” are anyone daring to tell the truth—“ false or misleading narratives”–about the Harris/ Biden/Whoever Administration. Yesterday’s “conspiracy theory” is today’s breaking news. How dare anyone fail to fully trust “government institutions,” or in any way criticize them? Who the hell do they think they are? Americans?!
*For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.
Translation: The 2020 elections were the most fair, open and transparent in history. Ignore the credible reports that prove otherwise. Covid-19 was caused by bats, bats we tell you, and you are ordered to believe us because the Chinese would never lie about a thing like that. Take the link that follows to find DHS’s “examples of “violent extremist attacks” which have nothing whatever to do with DHS scare assertions. How dare domestic terrorists speak of grievances?!
*Some domestic violent extremists have continued to advocate for violence in response to false or misleading narratives about unsubstantiated election fraud. The months preceding the upcoming 2022 midterm elections could provide additional opportunities for these extremists and other individuals to call for violence directed at democratic institutions, political candidates, party offices, election events, and election workers.
Translation: OK, so we don’t have any actual examples of violence or knowledge of any real plots, but we know that’s what all you Normal Americans who criticize government want to do, you terrorist, racist, white supremacist insurrectionists. And forget what Joe Biden said about the 2022 elections being rigged if D/S/Cs don’t get to rig the elections. Who you gonna believe, us or your own lyin’ eyes and ears?
*A small number of threat actors are attempting to use the evacuation and resettlement of Afghan nationals following the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan last year as a means to exacerbate long-standing grievances and justify attacks against immigrants.
Translation: Don’t you dare criticize the Government for leaving Americans and our actual allies behind and importing tens of thousands of entirely unvetted Afghans, some of who have already sexually assaulted and raped women here in America, you xenophobes!
Take this link to the Homeland Security document. Also at The American Thinker, obvious domestic terrorist Andrea Widberg has some thoughts on immigration:
And just yesterday, Townhall’s Spencer Brown caught a significant change to the mission statement for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services: [skip]
The old version:
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the nation’s lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values.
That’s straightforward enough: America is a nation of laws, some of which govern immigration, and the USCIS is responsible for enforcing those laws fairly and in a way that protects Americans and America.
The new version is much shorter:
USCIS upholds America’s promise as a nation of welcome and possibility with fairness, integrity, and respect for all we serve.
Suddenly, USCIS is unconcerned with the rule of law and unconcerned with protecting Americans. It is, instead, an organization that exists to make life easier for the millions of illegal aliens the Biden administration is encouraging to enter America and then, once they are in America, funding and resettling them in districts that willfully refuse to vote for Democrats.
In other words, the Biden administration has stood America on its head: those who dare to disagree with the administration are potential terrorists — and please, ignore the whole First Amendment ‘shtick’ about the federal government being barred from ‘abridging the freedom of speech … or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’ In Biden’s America, the Constitution has grown beyond such petty things as individual liberty.
Meanwhile, even as the government is intimidating ordinary Americans into abandoning their right to protest their government, it’s making it patently clear that its immigration agency exists for the benefit of illegal aliens, not American citizens.
Final Thoughts: The First Amendment exists to acknowledge and secure the American right to criticize government and every one of its functionaries, including the President. By law and tradition, no speech enjoys greater protection under the First Amendment than political speech, which is not only the dimwitted rhetoric of politicians, but citizen criticisms—even angry or obscene criticisms—of politicians and government in general. It is no coincidence whenever a formerly democratic/republican government turns tyrannical, the first compacts with the people it breaks are freedom of speech and the right to keep and bear arms. Without those rights, no people can successfully resist a despotic government.
As I noted in the first article of The FBI And Suzi Soccermom series—enter that title in the SMM homepage searchbar to find every article in the series—we’re seeing the Administration pushing ever harder to intimidate Americans into shutting up. In so doing, they’re trying to force Americans to abandon, without a shot fired, the rights for which they fought the Revolutionary War, and the freedoms for which the best of us have sacrificed so much since.
The Administration ignores our actual enemies, as I explained in Communist China: The Long View, and The New Iran “Deal”: Let’s Go Brandon!, and brands Normal Americans domestic terrorists, racists, white supremacists and insurrectionists. Thus far the Administration has gone no further than escalating its “enemies of the state” rhetoric, the unconstitutional, despotic persecution of January 6th defendants being a notable exception. The greatest danger lies in the Administration, desperate to maintain power at all costs, taking the next step: using force against Americans to make them shut up. The closer they get to electoral disaster, particularly in 2024, the faster they can turn our military into a woke regime protection force, the more likely they’ll take that step.
We might thank Canada’s pajama boy Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, for giving us a preview of coming attractions. After all, it wasn’t until Joe Biden encouraged PM blackface to crack down on those nasty truckers that he went full communist. Never go full communist. That’s the sort of thing that might provoke even Canadians to fight back.
As I’ve always maintained in this series and elsewhere, Americans are slow to anger. They’ll long endure usurpations as long as they believe the peaceful restoration of the republic is possible. But when the government stops believing it serves them, when it brands them white supremacists, racists, terrorists, insurrectionists, it crosses a line no sane person dare cross. When that line is crossed, Americans get worried, but more, they prepare for the crossing of the final line, the line where government forces all Americans, including law enforcement and our increasingly woke military, to choose sides.
We now know exactly who and what D/S/Cs are. They’ve become so emboldened they’ve told us in word and deed. Their smarter advisors are telling them to hide their true nature, to back away from gun control, defunding the police, calling Americans terrorists, Covid repression, saying inflation is a good thing and all of the insults and deprivations of liberty and due process they’ve embraced in the last few years. They think we’re so stupid we’ll say: “oh look, they’ve changed! We can believe them when they tell us everything was our fault all along. The love us and want us to be happy.”
An old maxim suggests when someone tells you they hate you and want to crush you, you’d better believe them. Would you, gentle readers, hearing anyone speak of their spouse the way the government speaks of Americans believe they loved them and were determined to secure their welfare?
Hope for the best; work for the best; prepare for their worst.
I guess if one is “preparing for the worst” they have some doubts about the future. Given you’ve vilified at least half the country then your preparation for “the worst” would be targeted against those you have vilified. But of course “the worst” is simply a political label for a call to political action only, right?
Ah.. but wait…this is your 29th post in a series about a second civil war. The first civil war was a shooting war, Mike.
You know… I have yet to hear or read anything from Liberals about needing a “civil war” to defeat “your half” of the country. Why is that?
Because since the 1960’s the Leftist’s and Marxist’s have gradually gotten control of all the levers political, academic, media and business hard power they can. They think they can maintain that control through politics and the media. They think, just as business did in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, as long as business is getting rich, business will go along with it. The think as long as they keep control of all levels of academia eventually the indoctrinated masses will outnumber them.
Over a decade ago the Democratic National Committee, after reading and internalizing reports commissioned to answer two questions: voting pattern’s in national elections from 1950-2000; projected population trends 2000-2050, moved the official stance of the Democratic Party from just left of center to hard Socialism edging into Communism.
That is why I and Mike both now call them Democratic/Socialist/Communist’s D/S/C’s for short. The proof is in the legislation D/S/C’s have pushed over the past decade. In the rhetoric in campaign’s over the past decade. It was especially evident in the debate answers over the 2020 campaign.
Doug the main difference is while I do not always agree with what you write I will fight to support and protect your right to write what you do. And engaging in reasoned, fact based honest debate is much better than ad hominid attacks being the response. Which is all the Left has anymore.
“Because since the 1960’s the Leftist’s and Marxist’s have gradually gotten control of all the levers political, academic, media and business hard power they can. ”
Who is the “they”? The “them”? Sounds like more conspiracy theory stuff again. Since the 1960’s the balance of power has constantly shifted between the two parties. So I suppose from what you and Mr. Ken, have stated I shall ask.. just where have you fallen “victim” to anything political?
More to the point.. does this mean you have to imagine some “civil war” to kill off 50% of Americans to your way of thinking?
Mike McDaniel said:
You keep bringing up the pronouns. You know perfectly well to whom zaarin7, and I, refer. We’ve both made it clear, and it takes only a few mouse clicks to find more than sufficient evident of “their” bad will and malign intentions.
As I’ve so often pointed out, no sane person wants war, nor do they imagine should one occur it will be necessary to kill half the country. All that is necessary to prevent one is for every American to obey the Constitution–the supreme law of the land–and the rule of law in general. That shouldn’t be hard, yet for D/S/Cs, it seems impossible.
Mike McDaniel said:
What you said.
Mike McDaniel said:
Oh please. You haven’t seen D/S/Cs calling for the jailing, even murder, of people who don’t follow their Party line? You’ve entirely missed the DOJ. FBI. etc. going after parents concerned about their children’s educations? You’ve entirely missed the heated, militaristic, bloodthirsty rhetoric of D/S/Cs?
I’m not at all calling for war against half the country. The last several years of benevolent D/S/C rule have pushed millions of former D/S/Cs into red states and away from that Marxist, evil ideology, so the proportions are shifting.
I’m trying to convince those capable of being convinced to avoid war at all costs.
“I’m trying to convince those capable of being convinced to avoid war at all costs.”
Yee-ah.. I see that.
Mike McDaniel said:
I know this is a fool’s errand, but provide one–one only–example of my writing in any way encouraging Civil War, as opposed to warning about it’s dangers.
I suppose that depends on how direct or oblique you wish to apply it. I consider this post here one example of an oblique read-between-the-lines. I mean.. how many times can you “warn” about the fallacies of a civil war. It’s like, who exactly are you trying to “warn”… people with guns and itchy trigger fingers?
“An old maxim suggests when someone tells you they hate you and want to crush you, you’d better believe them.”
You have a blog that contains followers who totally distrusts government… zero followers even close to my opposition to all that…. and you promote half the country as an “enemy” that wants to take away the freedoms of “real” Americans.
Something about a duck in all that.
Mike McDaniel said:
1) I’ve been pointing out for years should D/S/Cs finally provoke a conflict, they’ll discover very rapidly half the country is not willing to die for socialism and to keep the self-imagined elite in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed. So no, I don’t see half the country directly opposing the other half.
2) No sane person ever has an “itchy trigger finger.” I hope to inform those who hate America and Americans things won’t turn out as they assume should they be foolish enough to light a conflagration. In so doing, I hope to avoid civil war.
3) I can’t speak for everyone who reads this scruffy little blog, but I certainly don’t think in terms of leaders and “followers” in my blogging. Readers who don’t always agree with everything I say, certainly, but my primary hope in writing is readers will find the occasional insight or useful suggestion, and perhaps be a bit more well informed. Enemies of real Americans, as you term them, are anyone who wishes to ignore or destroy the Constitution, including those who are actual racists and would do away with the equal application of the law.
To your first point, which is the crux of it all…. back to the old broad-stroked label again.. your D/S/C’s… you are indeed lumping the D’s in with the S’s and C’s which is apparently your generic term for all things “bad” inside American politics (not sure I understand why the D’s fall into this), and then you toss all that into a “self-imagined elite”… and from there the entire enchilada wants to “hate America” and defy the Constitution… to which leads us to your “warnings”, all 29 of them so far, about a coming of a second civil war-but-don’t-let-it-happen.
And no, Mike.. “real” Americans is NOT my term.. it’s been yours all along.
Mike McDaniel said:
As I’ve several times explained, I include the “D” in “D/S/C” because I recognize there are some people who call themselves Democrats who hold traditional values, such as a love of America, Americans, and respect for the Constitution. They may argue over various policies, but they do not seek to destroy the nation. Sadly, they are the minority in the D/S/C Party these days, a party run by socialists and communists who by definition and disposition hate everything about America and Americans and seek to “fundamentally transform”–destroy–both.
As to “real” or “normal” Americans, that’s simply shorthand, as I’ve also often explained, for people of any political philosophy who embrace American constitutionalism and equality under the rule of law. Some Democrats are encompassed by that shorthand. Socialists and communists, by their own lights, are not.
As to the nature of the self-imagined elite, their loathing of America and Americans is available in gargantuan profusion at the click of a mouse. That’s reality, not opinion.
The old aphorism goes like this: “If Palestinians would lay down their arms, peace. If Israelies would lay down their arms, genocide.”
I propose one for our times: “If D/S/Cs would embrace American constitutionalism and equality under the rule of law, peace. Normal Americans already do.”
There’s a lot of different reality out there. It is what it is, I suppose.
Mike McDaniel said:
There is only one reality, but a great deal of self-delusion.
“Doug the main difference is while I do not always agree with what you write I will fight to support and protect your right to write what you do.”
That’s one of the biggest differences between those on the left and those on the right. The left will give up their rights if they think it will harm their opponents. Then when their rights are taken away…which is the next natural step in the process, it always comes as a surprise.
In 1972, George Carlin did a stand-up comedy act about “the seven words you can’t say on TV.” Mostly crude anatomical descriptions.
Today, the words listed would be freedom, liberty, equality, responsibility, he, she, and family.
