I’ve never been much of a drinker, but it’s times like these I think I need to change that.
Let me present to you three exhibits, and then we’ll go into what the hell is happening because while it looks confusing it’s really quite simple.
Maybe you’ve heard the story. Maybe not, so here’s the quick rundown.
This guy, an actor whose acting skills hopefully are better than his language skills, clearly has a beef with the Donald.
Now, to be clear, I’d no idea who this guy even was, nor did I care. Apparently he’s some celebrity of some sort.
His story goes that two men violently attacked him and shouted racial slurs at him, including, “this is MAGA country”.
Turns out the story was all “shulbit”, and so you ask yourself the question, why?
That’s easy. Take a look around and tell me when was there a better time to be a victim. Seriously!
As I mentioned in my post about the white men of the world, being a victim has never been more powerful.
Pity, however, is the watchword of the victim. And being a victim has never been so powerful as it is today in Western society.
And so Jussie figured he’d use his “status” of being a victim.
He’s gay, so he played that victim card. And he’s black, so he played that one too. It’s a shame he wasn’t poor, though after a stint in the slammer that may well come to him. His not-so-carefully-thought-through plan was designed to gain attention and provoke the entire country into an “us vs. them”.
And oh boy, did it succeed.
Folks leapt into the brawl from all sides eager to virtue signal for “their cause”. And now that the truth is revealed the lynch mobs have fallen silent. But they’re only resting, waiting. Watch!
This guy, Colin Colin Kaepernick, who, aside from being able to save money on a pillow, knelt during a national anthem. He said he wanted to raise awareness of racism, social injustice, and police brutality against “black people and people of color.”
And just like that. Bam! In jumped the lynch mobs, both for and against. Everyone taking sides and cheered on by the baying mobs. Fascinating to watch, really.
A number of high school kids very nearly had their lives destroyed when the social media mobs descended on them for “racism”. Video evidence subsequently proving nothing of the sort took place.
In between, though, we saw much the same hooting, panting, and baying mobs all too eager to unleash hellfire.
The Covington kids, Colin Kaepernick, and Jussie Smollett are simply a symptom of a deeper problem.
Hell, even Katy bloody Perry can’t flog her smelly old shoes without the lynch mobs snarling and frothing at the mouth.
While everyone is caught up in the drama and intrigue, behind all three stories, and indeed many more like them, the most important element is entirely missed.
Multiple factions use every little event, staged or not, to tear society apart. They do this in order to gain attention, because attention is power.
Where previously we had journalists that would dig and dig determined to reveal the truth… and a populace who were educated in critical thinking and desirous of the truth, today journalists fabricate, rather than report the news (because the news outlets are bought and paid for by special interest groups).
And people, lost, confused, and increasingly educated in “liberal” universities more concerned with safe spaces than truth, have left large swathes of the populations devoid of any ability to think critically.
And so here we are.
The first step towards any conflict involves pulling people apart. Us vs. them. Hitler did it. Pol Pot did it, as did Mao.
We’re seeing this across the Western world right now. I’ve picked on the US here but we’re seeing similar things taking place in the UK, throughout Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
I think George Carlin had it right:
“I love individuals. I hate groups of people. I hate a group of people with a ‘common purpose’. Because pretty soon they have little hats. And armbands. And fight songs. And a list of people they’re going to visit at 3am. So, I dislike and despise groups of people. But I love individuals.”George Carlin
There are many forces and interests vying for attention here and folks are caught up in a wave of fear, paranoia and saddled with a realisation that speaking out may involve saying things currently not politically correct.
Behind closed doors they do, but out in the open? Noooo. I spoke about this in my post about the silent majority.
The temperature is rising and you can see this in social media, because let’s face it, it’s so much easier to threaten violence from a keyboard sitting in your underpants than it is to actually engage in it and face the personal risks involved.
When people fear each other, it’s much easier to get them to hate each other. Fear is being dialed up with each passing day. Take note of who’s championing any given narrative and why. There’s always a motive.
The Next Phase
You know what comes after all these groups have been successfully pulled apart?
They will be pushed AGAINST one another. Watch!
At a local level it means increased civil strife. This will be exacerbated by the looming pension crisis in both the US and Europe.
And speaking of Europe…
The idea of a centralised federal Europe forming successfully is completely laughable. That dog simply won’t hunt.
And realise this, it doesn’t matter who you choose to “follow” if you’re that way inclined, because all politics is simply a matter of those most successful at getting the herd hooting and panting for “their guy”.
All politics is herd mentality, and those who are the most successful at this game are those who can channel animal spirits into herd behaviour to their advantage.
