Back at home, later that night [Election Night 2020], I’m brushing my teeth and my phone buzzes, I pick up and hear on the other end, ‘Hey this is Rudy Giuliani, I’m here with Sidney Powell…” I spit out the toothpaste and stand there for a few seconds having a flashback to the aftermath of 9/11.
From then until January 6th I had held out some hope that the wrong would be righted. But the first mistake of Trump’s administration would come back to haunt him as it had so many times during those four years. You’re only as strong as the people you surround yourself with, and Trump was surrounded by spineless lizard people, deluded midwits, and outright traitors. He was fond of quoting a poem, The Snake. If only he had took it to heart. As the snake says to the women he bit after she brought him into her house, saving him from the cold, “You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in.” Such goes for the long line of snakes Trump brought into the White House: Henry McMaster, Reince Priebus, Gina Haspel, Mike Kelly, James Mattis, John Bolton, Rex Tillerson, Mike Pompeo, Mark Meadows…the list goes on…
…January 6. An enormous crowd of Americans stood on the ellipse in front of the White House. The President was late. Pence had just told him that he would not use his power to reject votes from the states where the fraud occurred. When he finally got up he gave a rambling diatribe. Meanwhile, during the speech Pence had released a letter explaining that he was caving. Folks in the crowd started seeing the news on their phones. Some began to head for the Capitol to protest. Before they could get there, a vanguard of agent provocateurs had already began to smash their way in. By the time most of the regular Trump supporters had arrived, the Capitol Police were welcoming people in as if it was a normal day of visits by tourists. Most of the people behaved as if they were on an unguided tour. Who can forget the photo of the sweet old granny with her little American flag, looking around in awe at the magnificent building? It was a trap. But one that was only partially successful. Trump posted a video to his social media accounts urging people to “go home in peace”. The crowd began to thin and leave. Most of the people who came to DC for the rally had not even been in the vicinity of the Capitol. Most who did treated it as a lark. There was no insurrection. An actual insurrection would have involved heads on pikes and a new revolutionary government established on the spot. The only tragedy that occurred was the murder of Ashli Babbit, an American patriot and veteran who did not endanger anyone. She merely climbed through a window. It was a simulation. But as a simulation it did have enormous power, because it showed that the mechanics of American government are also a simulation. “They have desecrated the Sacred Temple of Democracy” the donkeys brayed. No, the sacred temple was turned into a cheap whorehouse long ago. To desecrate implies that there was something sacred. All modern experience tells us otherwise. Unless your idea of holiness involves bailing out Wall St’s reckless gambles with money you extract from the sweat of decent Americans, or approving NIH budgets which are then used to manufacture chimeric bioweapons that kill more of your own people than all foreign wars combined.
It was Trump’s admonishment to go home in peace that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Twitter and Facebook took down the video and locked Trump’s accounts. That’s right, after years of shitposting and threatening to annihilate entire countries, the President of the United States was kicked off the internet for telling people to go home in peace. Why? Because going home peacefully before nightfall was never part of the plan. The FBI had something far more bloody in mind. As night fell on the capitol, the black bloc paramilitary shock troops were to be deployed. The end of the siege would be Carthaginian in its destruction, which would then give license to a broad-spectrum crackdown. As bad as it all was, Trump’s last move as President blunted their plans to an extent. So they had to silence him.
This was the moment I knew that the last traces of the ancien regime in America was truly dead and buried. The first step of any successful coup is to seize control of the leader’s communications. In a rapid and coordinated succession of announcements, all social media platforms disabled his ability to communicate to the American people. Even Pinterest banned him. It all was shockingly anticlimactic, almost boring in its execution. “This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.” – T.S. Eliot…
…we are now living under a much different and dystopian system than before, and we must act accordingly. As I write this, over half a year since Jan. 6th, political prisoners continue to be tortured in the DC Lubyanka. Our system is not unlike that of the Soviet Union. As a friend of mine observed, “America spent 50 years fighting the Soviet Union just to become a gay and retarded version of it.”
With a teaser that good, you know you’re gonna want to read all of it. Seriously, people, you do NOT want to miss a single word of this piece. It will crystallize events and underscore just what happened to us, where we now are, and how we got here more fully than I can easily describe to you.
