1. Actual, real-life, Domestic Violent Extremists called Black Lives Matter & Antifa, tried to burn Washington DC in the summer of 2020. Not a single arrest. Not one. Not a single FBI tweet about “help us find those arsonists who attempted to burn St. John’s church”. Nothing.
2. We live in this bizarro world where people debate the hypocrisy of a “dual justice system”, without ever accepting that it is not hypocrisy – it is by design. The double standards are a feature, not a flaw.
3. Instead of arrests in the summer of 2020 the FBI did this.... No kidding.... Literally, this was their response to BLM and Antifa rioting in DC:
4. The DOJ and FBI willfully and purposefully turn a blind eye to literal acts of domestic violence, shootings, beatings, arson, murder, riots and chaos -even attacks on federal buildings- and do nothing.
5. Do you think the FBI would be publicly behaving like this (picture below 2020) if they were not a politically ideological institution?
6. For some reason, even those who understand big picture dynamics are still comfortable sticking their heads in the sand about “motive”.
Most people are still clinging to elementary school civics references for federal ‘rule of law’ applying to DOJ and FBI.
7. There seems to be a willful blindness on the part of the American people, a chosen refusal to acknowledge the implications of the unAmerican and unConstititional behaviors, actions and outcomes we are being served on a daily basis.
8. It can no longer be presumed to be a matter of “I can’t see what’s happening” because a whole lot of normal Americans really are clean and articulate.
“I can’t see it” just doesn’t cut it.
9. Bullsh!t! You can see it, you are just choosing to reconcile the irreconcilable because it is more comforting to ignore the truth of it.
Admit it,... You are scared:
10. You are scared of being labeled
You are scared of being belittled
You are scared of being Alinsky’d.
You are scared of being targeted.
You are scared b/c you have never been here before.
You are scared of being right.
Be honest. Avoidance has become your survival mechanism.
11. It’s more along the lines of “I see what’s happening, but it’s scary and complicated and confusing, and if I admit that I see it, I will become responsible in a way that I am not if I keep pretending I can’t see it or hear it or maybe I don’t understand it.”
12. Our Republic is Kitty Genovese screaming in the darkness, being assaulted repeatedly and viciously, while onlookers sitting in the darkness startle onto their feet.. some trying to reach for light switches while others try to hush them, accusing them of exaggerated reactions.
13. The screams reach some homes where the residents look nervously and silently at one another, really hoping that someone else will call the cops, because obviously something really bad is happening out there.
14. Now, like then, you, like those people in New York, look around and say well someone is going to do something about this usurpation of power and unconstitutional action.
15. So you pull the comfy blankies of historical public leadership reference over your head, cover your ears, block out the sights and the sounds, and do nothing.
16. We don’t even accept the fact a woman, Lady Liberty, our republic, is being repeatedly stabbed, carved up and her flesh torn from her body. She is bleeding on our grass and her bloody hand prints are on our trees and sidewalks. We know it, yet we lie there.
17. Doing what?
If not you,….. WHO?
Who is “them”?
18. Be sure of this... they really don’t mind if we disagree, if we vent, if we vote, even if we organize… as long as they get to keep doing what they are doing.
They really don’t mind us. At all.
Isn’t that obvious by now?
19. While we we use the word passive to describe this “willingness to continue in deception,” this is not an experience shaded in peaceful lavenders & dappled sunlight.....
20. This is the deadly passivity of muscles that no longer fire; tiny electrical charges that no longer leap from one synapse to the next.
21. This is, as passivity says: “I won’t begin resisting, because I know that once begun, I must continue. Rather than assert myself and perhaps fail (or get really scared), I will sustain myself where I am trapped.
22. I will muffle my moans so as not to risk exposure and I will call it self-control. Winston Churchill would have called it cowardice but I will call it "pragmatic caution.”
23. Speaking only of our relationship to the State…. are we suffering under the illusion we can indefinitely resist by way of pragmatic caution, without being troubled by the need for confrontation by way of active resistance.
If we are, is it time to become dis-illusioned?
