Imperceptibly, it becomes your reality. You do not recognize that you are in it, because everything you see is part of it, and everyone you know is in it … except for the others, who are not part of it. The “deniers.” The “deviants.” The “foreigners.” The “strangers.” The “Covidiots.” The “virus spreaders.”
See, although the narratives and symbols may change, totalitarianism is totalitarianism. It doesn’t really matter which uniform it wears, or which language it speaks … it is the same abomination. It is an idol, a simulacrum of the hubris of man, formed from the clay of the minds of the masses by megalomaniacal spiritual cripples who want to exterminate what they cannot control.
And what they want to control is always everything.
Everything that reminds them of their weakness and their shame.
Unfortunately, once this kind of thing gets started, and reaches the stage we are currently experiencing, more often than not, it does not stop, not until cities lie in ruins or fields are littered with human skulls. It might take us ten or twelve years to get there, but, make no mistake, that’s where we’re headed, where totalitarianism is always headed.
Whatever happens next, you can bank on the idea that the United States us fast hurling itself towards dystopia.
You can cry from the rafters that Trump was a genius at tyranny – however tyranny should not be synonymous with bellicose. Yes he got loud and obnoxious and many people wanted to hate him – but make no mistake it was a clever democratic strategy that has put us on the brink of civil war. Since May the so-called extreme left was throwing a war every night and nobody came to fight back, now the silent arrived in Washington DC to make their statement and now it will be the moment of truth.
The Democrats had “on call” large numbers of left-wing and/or paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter street fighters with a demonstrated proclivity for violence and a willingness to use the tools of rioting, looting, arson and intimidation for months on end.
This should never be in dispute, however, the media went out of their way to pretend that none of this was happening. Me and my crew were eyewitnesses– we would broadcast our show literally at Ground Zero as the protesters would set fire and vandalize businesses that were less than a block away from our studios in Downtown Portland..
