Aesop runs us through the whole sad, sorry mess.
Consider me this:
An economy tottering on the edge of the abyss, run by blind drunken fools, yanking levers and pushing buttons, with no idea what anything does. Inflation that has eclipsed Jimmy Carter. Already. Money worth next to nothing. Economidiots who can’t grasp the relation of one thing to the other. Your earnings and savings spiraling into the ground.
A pure banana republic, with all the trimmings, trying desperately to prop itself up 24/7/365, with the most incompetent bumbling assclown in world history nominally running the con.
The government openly defying the Supreme Court, while egging the mob to actively undertake its violent destruction.
The total destruction of the average person’s ability to travel as they please, and the total destruction of the energy independence we enjoyed just three short years ago, in service of a fairytale about anthropogenic globull warming that’s been debunked more times than Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, and imaginary fake moon landings.
A burgeoning surveillance state that extends to every detail of your life, every waking minute, to every corner of the globe.
A bureaucracy that extends its nose into every nook and cranny of your life, 24/7/365/forever, and grows like a cancer on PCP.
A lamestream corporate media machine that cheers all of this on, and berates and beats the citizenry about the head and shoulders with manufactured faux news and fake crises around the clock, around the dial, and around the world, in an unrelenting stream of panic-induced frenzy, not just knowingly, but slobbering and drooling for that effect.
Look at what half the country did for two years, when a conservative president, with nominal single-party control of both houses of congress, held the reins of power. (Ignore what an unbelievably huge missed opportunity for freedom that was, but for the Uniparty RINO Establishment.)
Look what they’ve done so far, deliberately, after a fraudulent election visible from space, and not yet 18 months into holding the reins of power. To the Constitution. Civil rights. The rule of law. Public order. The military. The medical establishment. The territorial integrity of the country. The legitimacy of elections and peaceful transfers of power. The militarization of the police, while simultaneously undercutting any legitimate law enforcement anywhere, anytime, against any member of any pseudo-victim class. The violent overthrow and subsequent ass-raping of actual science and biological fact, in favor of naked advocacy and junk science. The endless gaslighting and demonization of the other half of the country. And the rank hypocrisy at their own tactics and attacks, going back decades.
A foreign power seeking to destroy the republic utterly could not have succeeded this well in their wildest dreams, and their attempts would have looked no less like what we’ve actually gotten than what we’ve actually gotten – from our own so-called “leaders”.
Then consider every brick in the foundations of civilization they have ripped out and smashed into dust, and the levers of division they’ve jammed so deeply into the edifice of the republic that it cannot possibly long endure.
Now, in light of this long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evincing an obvious desire to reduce The People under absolute despotism, unto a state of abject slavery,
How does this ever end in anything other than gunfire, bloodshed, and violence on a biblical scale, with rivers of blood, and mountains of bleached skulls afterwards?
Know well that once that kicks off, the only imperative is to WIN.
Sincerest apologies to my friend Aesop for curb-stomping the hell out of the concept of Fair Use, but this one was just too damned on-point NOT to hijack damned near the whole enchilada for reposting here. I thought the semi-stealth insertion of a direct quote from the DoI towards the end there an especially apt touch, seeing as how the ideals and precepts writ large therein are really what it’s all about going forward, and pretty much ALL it’s about.
For my own part, I’ll just let Breitbart say it for me one more time.
Can it be more than mere coinkydink that, in my YouTube library/playlist of “saved” videos, the Breitbart clip was immediately and automagically followed by Heston’s “from my cold dead hands, Mr Gore!” excerpt?
