Saw this the other day and I’ve kinda held off on saying anything about it, just to see if maybe there was another shoe to be dropped. So far, there hasn’t been.
I have long said on this blog that a civil war is the last thing that we need. It is a last resort, because the person that you are, the life that you lead, is over. The cost is quite high, the outcome uncertain, and the pain will be nearly unbearable. Millions will likely die. We don’t take actions like that for light reasons, and we certainly don’t destroy a nation and our lives if there is a hope that we can accomplish our objective any other way.
Stop trying to be a Ray Epps. Put up, shut up, or go fuck yourself. Stop trying to urge others to do what you will not do. Frankly, I’m over it. Comments to this post will not be allowed.
This blog is closed until further notice.
And so it has been. Aesop mulls it over, at some length, and It. Is. Good.
We’ve been under attack for years. Like SAfrican farmers, the body count’s getting obvious to anyone looking, from anywhere.
Some people are going to decide they’ve had enough. The smart ones are going to do something about it, as they can, when they can, to whomever they can. They’re not going to advertise, or cock-a-doodle-doo.
They’re just going to do what they think needs to be done.
They’re going to Shoot. Shovel.* And Shut Up.
Eventually, that may become noticeable. Whether it does or doesn’t, everyone is going to have to decide to get in that game, or just watch.
That’s a you problem, not a me or an us problem.
Because if you do it, I don’t want to know. And if I do it, I’m not telling. Not you, not anybody, not ever.
Anybody who does is a pure Grade AAA Idiot.
But It’s. Going. To. Start. Happening.
Exactly, precisely so. To coin a phrase, the first rule of Revolt Club is, or surely ought to be, you never talk about Revolt Club. Plenty more at the link, of which you should read the all. If you can’t see how that relates to what Divemedic was on about, then you got some more thinking to do, I’m afraid.
I’ve contended for a long time here that when/if the Rebellion does get cranked up in earnest, Jurassic Media and TPTB will do their level best to keep it hushed up, for as long as they possibly can, after which point all bets are well and truly OFF. I do hope Divemedic will be back at some point; Our Side needs all the strong, uncompromising voices it can possibly get in this struggle, and DM was certainly one of those. But in any event, I wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors, whatever they may end up being.
Divemedic, Bitter Centurion, Filthie. They’ve said their piece I spose. Not much more to add. I did enjoy their opinions. I can still follow Filthie on Blab.
One way to know the festivities are about to start is when the printing presses of the various opponents start to be shut down by the opposition. In olden days they burned down the printer and tarred and feathered the publisher. Now the offending parties are deplatformed.
we are not there yet not enough people with nothing left to lose saw this years ago. It blew a cold wind over my heart and my mind because it speaks the truth. History has shown that.
“The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”
I must have missed something. When Divemedic wrote that piece about Ray Epps, I interpreted his last two sentences as closing comments as opposed to shutting down the shop.
Well, he redacted the original closer that said “Until further notice, the blog is closed”, wrote a new closing, and re-opened comments.
I’m sure he’s getting beyond frustrated with people fed-posting blatant incitement comments and saying, in so many words, “Start shooting people”.
Glad he’s over it, and back to posting, but it doesn’t change the central conversation.
The popcorn is still going to pop, with or without anyone noticing or cheering it on.
Because, as Billy Joel said, “We didn’t start the fire. It was always burning since the world was turning.”
