Just waiting for the spark.
And I thought Lefties were nuts when the Obamamessiah came off the Mountain with the Free Shit Army and all dat Gibs that they wanted. Apparently we ain’t seen shit yet. The current news I read is all insanity, mixed with propogandist shit that’d make even the most ardent believer barf. In fact, its soooooo out of control, almost everyone, ‘cept the most ‘truest of true believers, are having trouble digesting this shytte
I mean when you have assholes like Greenwald, by no means a right winger, trying desperately to warn his (((fellow travelers))) of the potential hellstorm that’s coming down the pike? I mean what kind of wake up is it going to take?
Well, I can hanker a guess or two.
Some ‘well known’ talking head goes out to some regional disaster, and tries walking around in ankle deep water again, and gets decapitated live on TV by a .338 Lapua Magnum hollow-point, along with his whole crew….
Or someone seals the doors to a well-known senator’s exclusive house at oh-dark early, and then throws copious amounts of Molotovs through the windows, burning them alive….
Then there’s always just the “random walks up to someone and gets shot in the face” completely randomly…like in NYC it happens all the time Even with security cameras, dude’ll be walking down the street casually, and all-of-a-sudden, another guy walking towards him whips out a gat, and does a 3 second mag dump, and is never found or caught.
Now, I’m not suggesting this be done, this’s a “what if” because at the rate the fever-dreams of our wannabe oppressors are going, they seem to think that they can control the fire so to speak. Ask Califrutopia how they handled them wildfires Oh So Well.
Reason they couldn’t?
Years of kindling
Which is –exactly what we got now. The illiberal officious and duplicitous Oligarchy and Wannabe Dicktaters have been metaphorically ‘cutting down’ the Constitution, Gun Rights, civil discourse and generally anything and everything considered to be “Right of Stalin and Mao” and man, that’s a LOT of kindling right there. Of course, that ain’t enough for these sub-par morons. No no no, they have to dance on aforementioned kindling, grinding it down even further to ‘woodchips’ and teeny broken pine branches.
If that gets sparked, it’ll be a conflagration so large and hot, it’ll make Dresden X Coventry X Hiroshima X Nagasaki look like a wet firecracker. The burning will continue until not one of them is left.
Gee, that’s be a real shame. One of Expat’s commenters recommends a cautionary Kipple:
Rome never looks where she treads.
Always her heavy hooves fall
On our stomachs, our hearts or our heads;
And Rome never heeds when we bawl.
Her sentries pass on—that is all,
And we gather behind them in hordes,
And plot to reconquer the Wall,
With only our tongues for our swords.
We are the Little Folk—we!
Too little to love or to hate.
Leave us alone and you’ll see
How we can drag down the State!
We are the worm in the wood!
We are the rot at the root!
We are the taint in the blood!
We are the thorn in the foot!
Mistletoe killing an oak—
Rats gnawing cables in two—
Moths making holes in a cloak—
How they must love what they do!
Yes—and we Little Folk too,
We are busy as they—
Working our works out of view—
Watch, and you’ll see it some day!
No indeed! We are not strong,
But we know Peoples that are.
Yes, and we’ll guide them along
To smash and destroy you in War!
We shall be slaves just the same?
Yes, we have always been slaves,
But you—you will die of the shame,
And then we shall dance on your graves!
The usual Kipling brilliance, which will naturally go unheeded by those in a position to profit most from his insight. But hey, what’s with this “graves” shit I’m hearing? Hogs and buzzards gotta eat too, y’know.
