Mob power on vicious rise globally … With the happenstance of events currently encircling the globe it behooves some of we ‘getting up there’ or close to being octogenarians, to illustrate to the existing masses that it all has very well taken place once or twice or, heck, hundreds and thousands of times before, since God Almighty uttered the words ‘Let there be Light’…
In other words, ‘tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered’. Look it up and embrace yourself within its context and thank God that you’re an American. Or would prefer to be.
There’s a very timely piece in today’s American Thinker from Andrea Widburg which (I’ll post up shortly) fleshes it all out, but let me give you the opener…
“The anarcho-socialist revolutionary dictatorship is on the move. It’s currently purging people who have failed to show sufficient allegiance to the cause. When that purge ends, the survivors will turn their attention to the rest of us. In America, we’ve reached the stage of “speak now or forever (be forced to) hold your peace.”
“I’m currently enjoying watching those people who, just last week, were ostentatiously woke suddenly discovering that they’re not woke enough. These are the same people who scolded conservatives who worried that “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” on college campuses would churn out twisted, paranoid minds. We were called reactionaries, fascists, racists, and worse. We were also correct”. [end]
Back in the years of Hitler’s pogrom, Pastor Martin Niemöller, who once supported Adolf Hitler, came to regret that decision and found himself almost dying in the Sachsenhausen and Dachau death camps. After the war, he unforgivably supported the communists, having somehow missed that fascists and communists are different branches of the same totalitarian socialist family tree. This became engraved on his tombstone …
“They came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”
In his ‘Brave New World’, from 1931-32, right in the middle of the Hitler pogrom, author Aldous Huxley had character Mustafa Mond explain the world state during a tour of the ‘hatchery’:
“Mother, monogamy, romance. High spurts the fountain; fierce and foamy the wild jet. The urge has but a single outlet. My love, my baby. No wonder those poor pre-moderns were mad and wicked and miserable. Their world didn’t allow them to take things easily, didn’t allow them to be sane, virtuous, happy. What with mothers and lovers, what with the prohibitions they were not conditioned to obey, what with the temptations and the lonely remorses, what with all the diseases and the endless isolating pain, what with the uncertainties and the poverty—they were forced to feel strongly. And feeling strongly (and strongly, what was more, in solitude, in hopelessly individual isolation), how could they be stable.”[end]
To re-state from above .. tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.
Now to Andrea Widburg, American Thinker: ‘As mob power grows, speak now or forever (be forced to) hold your peace’…
This week the New York Times forced out Editorial Page Editor James Bennet and demoted Deputy Opinion Editor Jim Dao back to the newsroom. Both had triggered Ben Rhodes’s know-nothing, twenty-somethings by allowing a U.S. Senator to write an opinion piece stating what the majority of the country believes: That President Trump should invoke the Insurrection Act if civil disorder gets too out of control.
At the Philadelphia Inquirer, the same college-grad mob forced out a groveling Stan Wischnowski, the editor who authorized an article saying that buildings matter. And at Variety, editor in chief Claudia Eller, who trumpeted LGBTQ correctness, failed the current wokeness test when she hurt a reporter’s feelings by saying the reporter sounded “bitter.” One strike and you’re out.
These purges happened at “thought leader” publications that purvey the propaganda that passes for news (the Times and the Inquirer) or shape the popular culture (Variety). The latest high profile firing, though, is moving from thought leaders to any leaders. Adam Rapoport, who has spent almost ten years as Bon Appétit’s editor in chief, felt the wrath of the mob. We’ve moved from news to food.[-]
[+] … It’s enjoyable watching revolutionaries take out their weaker members but don’t forget that they’ll be coming for you soon too. Speak now or they’ll make sure you forever hold your peace.[end]Full link below…
HAH! Editorial page editors are more important than a guy at a boutique food magazine, but the point remains: we’re entering the stage of Maoist revolution. Or Academia meets Main Street. The Maoist spillover to society. Most of these so-called educated fools have no idea of the Cultural Revolution. Nor of its consequences.
Fact is, the revolutionaries are climbing higher up he civilization tree, destroying as they go. The most perfect succinct description of what we’re witnessing.
