It could NEVER happen here

Think so, do ya? Better think again.

In September 2019, Couy Griffin, founder of Cowboys for Trump, met with President Trump in the Oval Office.

His group, according to its website, believes “securing our border, protecting our Second Amendment, and protecting the lives of the unborn are the most vital and key aspects in America’s Greatness.” Trump supporters riding on horseback—often carrying American flags and Trump banners—participated in rallies across the country to show support for the president.

Today, Griffin sits in a jail cell denied bail.

Prosecutors charged Griffin with one minor count of trespassing as part of the Justice Department’s sweeping investigation into the events of January 6. Griffin, who is a county commissioner in New Mexico, never entered the Capitol but investigators scoured his social media account to find evidence that he was “well within the restricted area” of the building.

Griffin did not assault a police officer or break any windows or even steal an important leader’s laptop. His real crime, of course, is that he’s a supporter of Donald Trump—and his real threat to society, according to U.S. prosecutors and a federal judge, is that Griffin dares to doubt the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. (In his post-arrest interview, Griffin told the FBI “the election was stolen.”)

Arguing that Griffin is a flight risk and should remain in jail throughout his trial, government lawyers claimed his refusal to accept Joe Biden as the legitimately elected president would cause him to also “deny the authority of the judicial officers appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.”

Magistrate Judge Zia Faruqui, who was neither appointed by the president nor confirmed by the Senate, concurred. “This is an offense that, at bottom, was an attempt to stop democracy from moving forward because people were unhappy about the results of the election,” Faruqui preached during a February 1 hearing. “I don’t think that the defendant will follow my conditions if he believes I am part of this machine of the democratic process.”

The judge added that refusing to accept the outcome of the 2020 election is like “not believing facts or science.” (Faruqui, it’s worth noting, was appointed a federal magistrate last year after a 12-year career at the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office, the same office overseeing every January 6 related case. This is the swamp in action.)

So, facing just one federal misdemeanor, Griffin will remain locked up for the foreseeable future.

He is, for all intents and purposes, a political prisoner.

That’s precisely what he is, and there’s no need to be mincing words or dancing around the thing. Even worse, he’s not the only one, with many, many more soon to join him. Jules provides a few more examples, and you’d better believe they’re just the tip of a very scary iceberg:

More than 200 people have been charged so far; the FBI has described its effort as a “24/7, full bore extensive operation” and warned that agents from its 56 field offices will be fully engaged.

“The scope and scale of these investigations…is really unprecedented not only in FBI history but in DOJ history,” acting Attorney General Michael Sherwin said during a press conference on January 12.

Since all cases will be adjudicated in Washington, D.C., it’s a sure bet that defendants will be shown no mercy in the Trump-hating Beltway legal system also responsible for prosecuting Roger Stone and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn—just a few of the Americans targeted by law enforcement solely based on their ties to Donald Trump.

“Some of the misdemeanors we’re filing, these are only the beginning, this is not the end,” Sherwin warned. “We’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy. Their only marching orders from me are to build sedition and conspiracy charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the Capitol, and these are significant charges that have felonies with prison terms of up to 20 years.”

This thinly-veiled threat, mind, comes from a high-level DoJ scumbucket whose agency couldn’t be bothered with getting to the bottom of Spygate, complying with Trump’s declassification orders, or doing anything whatsoever about last summer’s out-of-control rioting, looting, and destruction. Just too darned busy with important matters like, say, Bubba Ocasio-Smollett’s NASCAR noose attack, I suppose.

America’s own Great Purge and Cultural Revolution are just getting cranked up, and we ain’t seen nothing yet. Any damned fool still averting his eyes from what’s coming better get his head around the sequence of events as predicted by past lived experience, lest he suddenly find himself in the Ogulags too…or the Killing Fields.

The Enemy ain’t just whistling Dixie here, folks, nor is he playing around. If you never learned a smidgeon of history in school, I’d strongly suggest you bone up with a quickness. Otherwise, it has this nasty little habit of coming back around to bite EVERYBODY in the ass. Either pay heed to the lessons it teaches, or suffer the excruciating injury it inflicts on those who don’t.

I think I have apocalypse fatigue. I’m having a hard time getting worked up enough to panic.

Actually, I posted that, and then lo and behold, Severian summed it up better than I could have put it in to words:

As a historian, I **know** this [that Joe and the Ho are gonna get a lot of people dead]… and yet, God help me, I still can’t take these fucktards seriously. It’s like they decided to remake Idiocracy with an all-short bus cast.

Remaking Idiocracy with an all-short bus cast. That’s fucking priceless.

Yeah, I know that the Enemy ain’t jest whistlin’ Dixie, but, jeeze. This crew is the Apple and Dumpling Gang of totalitarianism.

We’re going to be SWATted and blundered into a full on insurrection/civil war by a bunch of Communist wannabes who couldn’t manage to purposely stage a blowbang at a porn shoot even with Kamala Harris’ expert advice.

If I end up getting killed by the minions of these idiots, I’m going to die embarrassed. It’s fucking mortifying.

Josef Stalin is watching these doofuses and he’s going to rise up out of his grave enraged because they’re making Communist Totalitarianism look stupid and ridiculous.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
