Most of us were taught as kids to “play nice with others”. As a kindergarten rule, it makes sense. In the modern world, it makes nearly no sense at all. The other side doesn’t want or feel a need to play nice. We shouldn’t either.
The Left, along with their allies inside the government, the oligarchs and the media, seem to think it’s time for them to turn it up to 11 and push through to their wet dream of socialism/communism in the US. I think Trump and those of use who supported and continue to support him scare the hell out of them, and they’re afraid it’s now or never.
It may be time for those of us who don’t care to live in their make-believe paradise to start getting more active in our opposition. I’m not saying anything about “To the streets!”. That’s still a ways down the list, but it’s closer this year than last. Far closer.
James Wesley, Rawles has an interesting piece out: “Nice Guys Go To the Gulag“. Good, actionable stuff in there. Steps you can take now in order to be ready when more difficult steps are needed for the future that is most likely be here sooner than we expect. Things like making contacts with like-minded people, steeling yourselves against the insults and lies that will be used against you and your family, homeschooling our kids and grandkids and beginning a fighting retreat to the hard red states. I’ll add one thing to his list-lose your normalcy bias.
Some of us will stay behind to become guerillas and support infrastructure for guerillas. Some will be Outlaw Moles. And as we used to joke in the Army, some of us will be speed bumps.
Every day and every week we see a march of acts by the Left and their useful idiots designed to further marginalize and/or demonize those who disagree with them. As Michael Bane has mentioned a number of times, we’re being “othered”-and othering is one of the first steps into making us less than human, desensitizing the Left’s foot soldiers in such a way that would make “dealing with us”, otherwise known as killing us, easier on the troops. It’s been a common tactic for centuries if not millennia. It’s how you get young men, who have been taught all their lives not to kill another human being, to see the other side as less than human, and therefore fair game.
They’re going to keep pushing until they start a civil war. They’re confident, since we’ve not really pushed back in any significant way. But I believe that there’s something they don’t understand.
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 small 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 the Left’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy…but it will fall upon deaf ears.
Such men-and women as well-understand something else that has been used as a half-joke for years: “The first one is expensive, but all the rest are free.” They get the joke, even though they don’t want to get it.
I’m afraid a dark night is falling, and we’ll be lucky to see the sun rise in our lifetimes.
