…Or Propaganda 102…
My avid fans may remember my short missive Propaganda 101 from a few days ago. In that, I tried to show how incompetent was the Tory propaganda machine in dealing with the Sloan Affair. Actually, they made it an affair, whereas it should have been a minor annoyance.
Recall that, recently, an Ontario Christian pastor was arrested [here] and sent to jail for holding church services. On being warned by the police charged with enforcing the tyrannical “lockdown” fantasies of the Liberal government, he refused to renege on his responsibilities to his flock by signing onto some submission, but chose to remain in jail pending trial.
The pretense that lockdowns have led to any improvement in the “fight against covid” has been shown to be a fallacy. Examination of data from around the world will clearly show that lockdowns have no effect on the spread or containment of covid. The entire response of the federal government is based purely on panic and a rejection of established scientific responses to a pandemic.
Many thousands of scientists and medical experts signed onto the Great Barrington Declaration which declares that the response to the pandemic should have been based upon protecting the vulnerable, caring for the sick, and allowing civilized society to continue.
There is certainly no agreement in the scientific world as to the viability of lockdowns. There is clearly in the political world a great deal of room for open discussion, and it seems that the Conservative Party no longer believes in free and open discussion, even when vital national interests are at stake.
Now, Erin O’Toole has revoked the Conservative Party membership of Pastor Hildebrandt and his son for taking this principled stand.

Truly, whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. So said the Ancient Greeks, demonstrating how much wiser they were than any of our current political leaders.
Almost all hitherto existing cultures and civilizations have been authoritarian states, whether ruled by an emperor, or a powerful Senate as in the Roman Republic, or a mixture of principalities and city states. Even the Democracy of ancient Athens was only a democracy of the upper echelons of that society.
For example, the Republic of Venice (the Most Serene Republic—La Serenissima) existed for over a thousand years. From its inception in 697 AD it was a center of trade in the Mediterranean and a center of learning in the arts, music and science. It was the birthplace of the great European explorer, Marco Polo, the composers Vivaldi and Marcello, the home of da Vinci and many others.
It was governed by a Grand Council of merchants and aristocrats from about a hundred families who elected the Doge who ruled for life. Venice was a shining light in the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance; princes vied with one another to hire the best artists, composers and scientists. Authoritarian government is directed to control of the State—not control of society or the social being.
Totalitarianism is something quite different and much more a product of the modern age. It does not even depend on authoritarian government; in fact, modern totalitarianism defers to democracy.
Totalitarian rule is aimed at controlling the minds, thoughts and behavior of everyone, particularly in their private lives. It aims at abolishing the very concept of a private life beyond control of the rulers and their dogmas. As in 1984, there will be no ownlife.
Language is debased and slogans mean their exact opposite—War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Diversity is Strength. The Bolsheviks tried this to the extent of trying to eliminate the family, the root of all civilization even forcing people to live in communal apartments with no private space. Needless to say this collapsed after a few years.
The French Revolution was essentially the first Bolshevik Revolution of modern times. Again, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity meant the exact opposite. The Terror replaced liberty, arbitrary dictatorship replaced Equality, and fratricidal murder replaced Fraternity. The Revolutionists sought to destroy not only the aristocratic state, and the Church, but French culture itself. All thought independent of the republican dogmas was to be expunged. The Terror reached such a frenzy, that friends betrayed friends, neighbors betrayed neighbors, to the guillotine for fear of themselves being the next to be beheaded in the name of Brotherhood. Tens of thousands perished and society and the economy foundered. As Gustave le Bon remarks in “The Psychology of Revolution”…
The propaganda of the new apostles was very energetic. To convert the provinces they sent thither zealous disciples escorted by guillotines. The inquisitors of the new faith would have no paltering with error. As Robespierre said, “The republic is the destruction of everything that is opposed to it.” What matter that the country refused to be regenerated? It should be regenerated despite itself. “We will make a cemetery of France,” said Carrier, “rather than fail to regenerate it in our own way.”
The new rulers of France despised the ordinary people, their religion, their culture and their very being. The French Revolution was totalitarian—the complete extirpation of all previous social relations and ideas.
The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was another totalitarian revolution with the same motivations and ideas. The same hatred of the Russian people was displayed; the same spite and envy powered their depraved designs. Again, attempts were made to eradicate all hitherto existing society and to control the minds, thoughts and behaviors of every citizen.
Although totalitarian regimes are usually also authoritarian, they do not have to be.
Authoritarian governments wish to control the State; totalitarian governments wish to control the mind.
In general, authoritarian rulers seek to aggrandize the State and Nation; totalitarian rulers despise the very people that make up the Nation. In our world today, the main forces of totalitarianism are extant in nominally democratic countries such as the USA, Canada, Britain and others. We see this in the proliferation of hate speech laws aimed at suppressing any and all points of view displeasing to our rulers. Punishments are exacted by cancelling people, firing them from their jobs or bankrupting their businesses. We see it too in the incessant insults against white people with the perpetual denigration of our history and with the belittling of our culture.
We see it too in the bastardization of our language. As George Orwell pointed out many years ago the control of language means the control of thought and the control of thought means the control of consciousness. The entire object of totalitarian mind control is to render coherent thought and rational expression impossible. Nations that are subject to this are easy to control and populations easy to suppress.
The recent events in the United States, the fraudulent election, the takeover of the capital by the deep state, and the attempted suppression of any opposition, are harbingers of the coming tyranny. The same is true in Canada and Britain.
In the US, Canada and Britain, no attempt has been made by the so-called conservative parties to call out the corruption of the education system, the substitution of propaganda for history, and the attempts to eradicate any freedom of discussion. The universities are now reduced to institutions of the Deep State committed to dumbing down the next generation of students and eliminating their capacity for analytical thought. The complete perversion of education is in full flight. Teachers and professors are bullied by Red-Guard students and political commissars, now called diversity and inclusion officers.
Totalitarian society is here, and it will get worse. For an outstanding analysis, read the interview with Professor of Clinical Psychology, Mattias Desmet of Ghent University, carried in lockdownsceptics [here].
Our conservative politicians in the West have shown themselves to be spineless and worthless, meekly lying down in front of this onslaught. If they wish to survive, they must stand for something and make their ideas known. That requires courage, not subservience.
Are any of them up to it?
As we experience the decay of freedom in the West and the expanding cultural rot, this is not going unnoticed in the rest of the world.
Russian director, Konstantin Bolomogov, has published a manifesto Похищение Европы 2.0, “Abduction of Europe 2.0”, in the journal Novaya Gazeta. [here] [The article is in Russian, but if you use Chrome, the translation extension will give a passable English version.]
He thinks the West is going through something like that depicted in Kubrick’s famous movie “A Clockwork Orange” wherein the hero is essentially “de-personalized” and turned into the opposite of a real man. For example,
The modern West is such a criminal who has undergone chemical castration and lobotomy. Hence this false smile of goodwill and all-acceptance, frozen on the face of a Western person. This is not the smile of Culture. It is a smile of degeneration.
A new Reich is taking shape; one which seeks to control our thoughts, and more importantly, our emotions. All totalitarian regimes require suppression of opposing ideas, hence the “community standards” of the tech tyrants.
… In this struggle, the functions of court, prosecution and isolation are not eliminated, but delegated from the state to society. The state, represented by the police and security officials, was “humanized”, but the conventionally progressive society took on the role of new storm troopers, with the help of which the same state is super effective in combating dissent.
The modern Western world is taking shape in the New Ethical Reich with its own ideology – “new ethics”. National Socialism in the Past. This is ethical socialism. Queer socialism. Siemens, Boss, and Volkswagen turned into Google, Apple and Facebook, and…
…[The] “Nazis” were replaced by an equally aggressive mix of queer activists, fem-fanatics and eco-psychopaths, just as thirsty for a total reformatting of the world [in their image].
Traditional totalitarian regimes suppressed freedom of thought. The new non-traditional totalitarianism has gone further and wants to control emotions. Restricting the freedom of emotion of the individual is a revolutionary concept in the New Ethical Reich.
Having emerged from one Hell [Bolshevism], Russians do not want another one, particularly one sold under the false gods of “tolerance” and “equity”.
Russian raznochintsy [19th-century déclassé intellectuals] tell us: Russia is at the tail of progress.
By coincidence, we found ourselves at the tail of an insane train heading into Bosch’s hell, where we will be met by multicultural gender-neutral devils.
You just need to unhook this carriage, cross yourself and start building your own world. Rebuild our good old Europe. The Europe we dreamed of. The Europe they have lost. [The] Europe of a healthy person.
Rex Murphy in the National Post gave them both barrels today… [here]
One year into COVID our venerated House of Commons is a disembowelled, non-functioning, neglected wreck. The targeted disrespect of the absolute and central symbol and instrument of our democracy has no parallel. No “minority” government has ever operated with the smug insouciance and patented, virtue-perfumed arrogance towards the Commons as the Trudeau government. This is, when we step back, their biggest sin.
All true, Rex. But where are the Tories? Why aren’t they raising hell? Why aren’t they holding rallies on Parliament Hill? Why aren’t they doing something?
Here we have a “government” that has bankrupted the nation, put hundreds of thousands out of work, destroyed multitudes of small businesses that took years to set up, instituted house arrest for most people in this country when the evidence shows that lockdowns do nothing to suppress the spread of covid-19 or reduce the death rate, or stop people from catching it.
Our churches, clubs, sports centers, social gatherings have been shuttered by an arrogant tribe of ignorant know-nothings pretending to be our saviors. Our everyday human social existence has been throttled for no reason other than stupid politicians making the wrong decisions, all the time, and not having the common sense to admit when they’re wrong. Our freedoms and liberties have been trampled underfoot and nobody is even objecting to it in that fatuous talking shop called a Parliament.
It’s unconscionable. The average citizen in this country has sacrificed more than any of these parasites in government have ever done. And where is the Conservative Party—the supposed defender of freedom and liberty? Where are the objections of outrage raised in the House of Commons? Is there anyone with a backbone left in the Tory Party?
This is not idle ranting. When the nation is facing a mass failure of governments on the federal and provincial levels, some-one in Parliament must stand up. Is that so hard to do? These MPs are protected by Parliamentary privilege; they can make a voice heard across the country in defense of freedom and liberty while the state is expanding its suffocating hold over every aspect of our private and social lives.
What have we heard from the Tories? Nothing. Instead, Conservative leader O’Toole has rushed to do the bidding of sneering Liberal apparatchiks by groveling before them because of some obscure individual, whom the Liberals did not like, making a contribution to an MP’s campaign fund. So what? Our country’s very substance is being violated by this degenerate commissariat of half-wits and O’Toole continues drooling on about the “far-right”, another phantasm of the Liberal Committee for Phlogiston Manufacture!
Further, the “Proud Boys” have been declared a “terrorist” organization (along with others) by unanimous consent in the House of Commons. Really? As far as I know, the “Proud Boys” have not been burning down city centers, assaulting police officers, causing millions, sorry billions, of dollars in damages, mostly on minority-owned businesses, and killing people. No, that’s Black Lives Matter (ha ha) and Antifa, the mainline communist thug outfits favored by the lying media. The gang that our fatuous pseud of a prime minister grovels before. Did not one Tory MP voice any concern about declaring an organization “terrorist” just because some Liberal says so? Who will be next? And will the Conservatives stand up then, or fold again?
I know that I am not alone in this. If the Tories do not wake up, they are finished. Why would anyone want to vote for a party that simply wants to be a door mat for the Liberals? The only reason Trudeau has the popularity ratings he does is because of the weakness and fatuousness of the opposition. Sucking up to the Fake News media is a waste of time. They will always hate the Right. Better to invite their hatred; then, normal people will know that you have a backbone.
The inimitable Basil Fawlty from “Fawlty Towers”, when exasperated, would say, “What’s the bloody point?” And yes, as far as the Tories are concerned right now, “What’s the bloody point”?
End the lockdown, tear off those masks, and tell these tyrants to go to hell.
And now, for the right-wing viewpoint….
The art of propaganda is to inculcate your ideas into the minds of citizens to advance your political cause, and, possibly, to hinder your opponents’ cause, and to bring your opponents over to your side as committed supporters. Or else render them impotent.
In the right hands and minds propaganda can be extremely effective. A recent Canadian example is very instructive.
Some weeks ago, some information was leaked to the media (by left-wing website Press Progress) that indicated that Derek Sloan, a Conservative MP, had received a donation (last August) from somebody who was supposed to be a “white supremacist” and a “bigot”, apparently not under his actual name (a Mr Fromm, I believe). The $131 donation went 90% to the Sloan campaign and 10% to Party Head Office. Did anyone know who the nefarious contributor was? Probably not.
“Upon learning about what happened, I immediately contacted the Executive Director of the Conservative Party, Janet Dorey, and requested this donation be returned” said Sloan, as reported by Radio Canada International [here]. (Shock, horror, I might be attacked by the CBC/Globe&Mail/NDP/Liberal/assorted pinko whiners—maybe, he mused).
OK, fair enough, you might think.
Anyway, the usual Fake News Media reaction, with lashings of Liberal and NDP humbug, demanded “action” by the Tory leader, Erin O’Toole. Is the Conservative Party the home of “bigots”, “racists”, “fascists”, “the far-right”, and all of Lucifer’s stormtroopers from the Ninth Level of Dante’s Inferno? (If only!)
So instead of standing firm and throwing the rabid insults back, and thanking Sloan for his prompt action, and then, perhaps, reminding folks that it was not the Conservative Party that paid millions of taxpayers’ dollars to a convicted Islamist murderer, there should follow, …that’s it, case closed, get back to your jobs.
But no—O’Toole’s response was a propaganda disaster for the Tories. Here’s why.
The first mistake that O’Toole made was accepting the terms, lies and insults of the Left. He rapidly got together a “statement”, as Radio Canada International reports:
In a statement issued Sunday, O’Toole said the Tories have “no place for the far right” in their caucus.
“The Conservatives are a moderate, pragmatic, mainstream party–as old as Confederation–that sits squarely in the centre of Canadian politics,” O’Toole said.
Of course, the “far-right” is anything that the Left doesn’t like. If you are anti-abortion, pro-free speech and free market, revere Western Civilization, are pro-Second Amendment, or anything else, you’re far-right. Even if you believe men and women are different sexes. Basically, if you are a normal person these days, that’s far-right with lefty Crackpot Central.
The thing is, the people who are castigated by the Left as being “far-right”, are, in fact, simply normal people. They are a large fraction of the core Tory vote. You may not like social conservatives, but they are just as much a part of Canada as are social liberals, even though they are less represented in the chattering classes. In a similar situation (not specifically related to the Sloan affair), O’Toole had refused to speak with Rebel News, because they had been classified as “far-right” by the usual Establishment toadies. Hardly a demonstration of “leadership”.
Essentially, by falling for the lefty lexicon, hook, line and sinker, O’Toole managed to call his own supporters by the names adopted by the Left and to alienate them at the same time.
The second mistake O’Toole made is displayed in his quote above. It cannot attract new support from the wavering center. The Liberal Party has always been the party to bend to any wind blowing over the political landscape because, lacking any firm principle, tacking to the lefty currents requires nothing so tedious as moral commitment. By saying that the …“ Conservatives are a moderate, pragmatic, mainstream party–as old as Confederation–that sits squarely in the centre of Canadian politics,” as did O’Toole (and everybody else), what makes him any different from the Liberals? If so, why would anyone want to vote for Liberal-lite in powder-blue knickers, someone who is totally flummoxed by a few pinko jibes, when they can get the real thing, full woke and blackface, in man-child Trudeau?
The third mistake O’Toole made was to assemble a firing squad for Sloan, consisting of the Tory caucus, to do the bidding of the Liberals by ditching him from caucus. Talk about sniveling before your enemies! What else could O’Toole do? Wear a sign on his back saying “Kick Me!”?
What this has done is to essentially neuter O’Toole. With any other minor event like this, all that is required is that some young lefty greasy pole-climber glom onto some obscure donation (wait and see how many “white supremacists” suddenly appear in the Tory donation list) and with a twitch upon the thread the Tory leader will come dancing, yet again, to disparage his own supporters.
Further, the whole caucus are now accomplices! Deep in the depraved nether-reaches of Liberal Propaganda Central, there are guys high-fiving over this. You’ve heard of circular firing squads; well, this is more like they’re all plugged into Old Sparky and O’Toole’s gonna flip the switch! You can’t make this stuff up.
Propaganda must be directed to securing the commitment of supporters and sowing the seed of doubt in opponents so as to make them more accepting of your message and vision. This the Left understands very well and the Right doesn’t. Throwing your core support under the bus is a pathway to disaster.
The Right must come to understand that, without a fundamental idea about the nature of the nation, society, and the state, to present to the people a face of mere re-action, instead of action, is a sign of weakness. The current display of the Tory leader shows a lack of backbone and a lack of belief in his cause. If the Right in Canada wants to achieve any form of success, it must approach propaganda seriously. The current approach seems to be to appreciate being kicked around by the Liberals and the tribe of pressitutes in their service. This will never gain the respect of wavering voters and only further alienate core Tory voters.
O’Toole has scored another propaganda victory for the Left without the Left having to raise a finger—and it wasn’t even their $131! This has to be one for the propaganda record books.
That’s why the Tories and O’Toole are toast.
That’s all for now, folks.
I am having trouble saying he is wrong. – Dalwhinnie
In Hemingway’s great novel The Sun Also Rises, Mike Campbell was asked about his money troubles.
“How did you go bankrupt?” Bill asked. “Two ways,” Mike said. “Gradually, and then suddenly.”
Gradually, and then suddenly. Cast your minds back to 1991. August. In the Soviet Union, for a few years, perestroika and glasnost had been shaking up the Soviet system, communism in Eastern Europe had collapsed and its vibrations were being felt inside Russia.
Then, suddenly, a General Committee for the State of Emergency headed by Gennady Yanaev, Dmitri Yazov and Vladimir Kryuchkov et al., arrested Gorbachev at his vacation spot in the Crimea, drove tanks into downtown Moscow and held an ill-fated press conference, at which they became a laughing stock, to announce their take-over. The Soviet nomenklatura was fighting back. What they didn’t bank on was the mass demonstrations of ordinary Russians and Boris Yeltsin’s famous speech standing on a tank outside the Russian parliament building. When the KGB Alpha Group special forces refused to take down Yeltsin, their number was up. The coup collapsed in three days and Gorbachev returned to Moscow, as he said, “…to a different world.” Within four months, communism fell and the Soviet Union broke up into its national republics.
Gradually, and then suddenly.
America 2020. Election Day. Donald Trump handily winning re-election—until—after midnight vote counting is sealed off in swing states and hundreds of thousands of ballots miraculously appear, almost all for Biden. No proper oversight is allowed. Republican officials are locked out by corrupt Democrat Party apparatchiks. Hours later, the Fake News media, always at the service of the Democrats, declare Biden the winner. Everybody knows, yes everybody, that a massive fraud has taken place. Some days before, old, befuddled Joe was seen and heard on video bragging about the best vote fraud program in history.
The American nomenklatura struck back. After the Capitol affair, shrieks of “insurrection” were emanating from the propaganda organs of the nomenklatura (aka the press), the president was banned from social media along with thousands of others on the right, and the vicious accusations of a frightened and panicking oligarchy saturated the airwaves. The Biden inauguration had all the trappings of a communist coronation: thousands of armed troops making sure that no ordinary Americans would display their displeasure at the coup that was taking place; suitable groveling from the Gollum-like hordes in the media; and endless lies about the vast numbers of Americans who voted for Trump. Nicolai Ceausescu would have been proud.
The American nomenklatura had been preparing for this for years with their endless lying about “Russian collusion”, with the media baying in support, with almost daily interjections from Satan’s spawn, Clinton—a kind of Elena Ceausescu without the charm.
The Capitol incursion was their opportunity. They pounced, and Trump was unprepared. It’s almost certain that Trump and his supporters never thought that the oligarchy would or could be so vile and unprincipled. But they have shown their hand now and there is no turning back. Censorship and nascent tyranny are afoot in the US and the Democrat Party is the horse of the Apocalypse about to ride rough-shod over the Constitution and the American people, particularly the working class of America.
Unlike the Russians, Americans have no modern direct experience of totalitarianism, invasion, or mass warfare on their own territory. The Russians do. They can see the ugly face of a new Bolshevism in the US—ignorance of history, fanaticism in politics, hatred towards opponents, all manifest in the Democrat Party which has become the vehicle of Kultur Bolschevismus today.
Will Trump be the Boris Yeltsin of America? Will there be a tank for him to stand on and lead the masses against the Thugs of the Oligarchy?
Already people are being fired from their jobs just because they listen to other points of view or partake in online conversations. This is pure tyranny right now, nothing less. The Constitution no longer exists.
The same is true in Canada. No-one, certainly no-one in the Conservative Party, is standing up against this state intimidation and media suppression. The universities have been entirely conquered by the Bolshevist hordes, the newspapers are cat-box liners for Liberal Party, and the CBC is simply the State Radio for the Liberal Party—financed by the tax-payer, of course. It seems that the only independent media in this country are Rebel News and the Post Millennial (support them with a donation).
Things can change very rapidly—and unexpectedly. How close is the US to a Soviet-style moment of collapse? Will this coup last? How close are we to a dictatorship, in the US and in Canada? Will any of our politicians develop a backbone? Is there anyone in Canada who is at least an approximation to a Trump? —Because, by God, we need one.
But wait—the Gamestop revolution. Wall Street parasites getting it in the gonads from a crew of teeny-bopper investors? Yes, I hope so; bless the lot of them. Stick it to those parasites. It’s up to you young folks now, go for it.
A short entry—simply this. An excellent analysis of the Trump phenomenon from the Unz Review. Well done, Mark Allen.
The following is an article on the British Website “The Conservative Woman” by Laura Perrins… The Johnson regime is an abusive partner [here].
I reproduce the whole thing; in so doing I hope I have not violated any copyright. It’s an essential read. If the BoJo regime is losing “The Conservative Woman”, they’re toast. And justly so. The problem is that the opposition Labour Party is even worse! The British seem to have an entire political class devoted to their destruction.
I SEE we have reached the ‘it’s not me – it’s you’ stage of our abusive relationship with the Johnson administration. This will be followed swiftly with further abusive and dehumanising diktats and laws when we will be told: ‘You made me do it’ and that it is all our fault.
Dear reader, do not underestimate the psychological attack the Johnson Regime is carrying out on the people of this country. For the last few days we have been subject to a relentless campaign from the Government and its media enablers that it is we, the public, who are responsible for the spread of the virus, if we even dare to leave our homes.
In truth, although there are limited exceptions to this rule, the Johnson Regime would rather we didn’t leave home at all. The preferred course of action would be to seal us inside our homes for the next three months because humans have the irritating habit of wanting to actually talk with, and be with, people.
And, of course, we can’t do that as the NHS might collapse at any moment. They never stop telling us that the NHS is days away from collapse – it’s been going on like that for years.
And so, through a combination of outright terror and emotional blackmail, they want us to submit to this authoritarian neo-communist rule that seeks to crush our individual human rights.
So they threaten to abolish support bubbles. They do this because they are monsters. They do not seem to care that support bubbles are there to, you know, support people – often vulnerable people.
That abolishing them could leave older people or single mothers even more isolated and alone than they are already, does not seem to keep them up at night. There is a real cruelty in threatening this. But then, as I have always said, the cruelty is the point.
The Johnson Regime has a rotating team of NHS workers, medical ‘experts,’ modellers, and now the Met Police, coming on our airwaves to threaten us personally with the following array of punishments: Death via Covid, illness via Covid, withdrawal of ‘perks’ (like we are prison inmates) or plain old police power in the form of fines.
And remember folks, this is all because we deserve it, we have asked for it, we are not playing by their draconian, dehumanising cruel and inhuman rules.
The truth is they have no idea if this current lockdown will work. Neil Ferguson – aka Professor Lockdown – admitted as much in the Sunday Times, saying it was ‘a million-dollar question’ whether it will work or not.
Considering this lockdown is costing us billions per day, not to mention the mental health costs and total destruction of the lives of children, you would think he would be a bit surer.
But then, as Andrew Cadman has explained, for the scientists, lockdown is a once in a lifetime opportunity to test their theories in real time.
Ferguson also said that herd immunity would be achieved not just through the vaccination scheme, but because so many people have already been infected with Covid, in London at least.
Remember, dear reader, when we were told a few months back, that to rely on such a scenario – namely, herd immunity through infection – was a monstrous idea?
Here is yet another U-turn. Ferguson also dropped in the idea that multiple vaccinations might be needed because of new variants. He just dropped that in there, although it hasn’t been mentioned before.
The truth is, if this new variant is as transmissible as they say, this lockdown will not stop its spread. Ferguson already admitted that the virus is endemic.
To listen to them, you would think even looking at someone is enough to spread the virus, so this virus will spread. It will spread because it is a virus, not because you met a friend for a walk in the local park.
It will spread because it is a virus that likes human contact and, as we are humans, we will contact each other. Only an utterly dehumanising regime would demand that we act not like humans but like automatons, something akin to the computers that these scientists spend their life working on.
There is a monstrous cruelty in setting up a system of laws that the Johnson Regime knows cannot be abided by, by virtue of our humanity itself.
There is a monstrous cruelty in setting up a system of laws that cannot be abided by without the population suffering significant and serious mental harm.
There is a monstrous cruelty in setting up a system of laws that leaves children self-isolating in their rooms away from families, isolated from friends and school, unable to play music and sport, and unable to hug a relative. It is monstrous.
This system of inhuman laws is, to use a term found in criminal law, a form of entrapment. It is inevitable that these laws will be broken, by virtue of our humanity itself.
As such, it is also a breach of natural law and brings the law into disrepute. To ban or attack people for chatting is morally degenerate. The Johnson Regime and its monstrous system of State power is evil, unethical and immoral. Remember that.
Dear reader, it is not your fault. You did not make them do it. The Johnson Regime is the monstrous, abusive partner made real. It acts grossly unreasonably, places horrific burdens upon you, terrorises you and emotionally blackmails you, and demands you adhere to a regime of coercive control.
Then it tells you it is all for your own good or the good of someone else. Like an abusive partner, the Johnson Regime wants to break you. It wants to break you body and soul. Don’t let them do it. The reckoning will come.
After having witnessed probably the largest demonstration in modern times in support of President Trump, we now know that great swathes of the American people know full well the corruption of their electoral system by a Democrat party mafia. The invasion of the Capitol building, although wrong and not justified, was no “insurrection” as the lügenpresse would have us believe. Ashli Babbitt, a four-term servicewoman in the US Air Force, was shot and killed by Capitol police. [Video here:] …[See also, “Her Name Was Ashli Babbitt“]
She was no George Floyd—a drug-dealing thug and criminal turned into a plastic hero by the Swamp Things. She was a patriot and loyal citizen who is now being vilified as a terrorist by the new commissars and their lickspittles in the Fake News media.
Now that the nomenklatura have weaseled their way into power, the coming tyranny is already flexing its muscles. Facebook, Twitter and others are the tech commissars banning or suspending Trump and many more conservatives and right-wing voices. This is all supported by the Democrats—it’s the out-sourcing of censorship; not done directly by the politicians, but by their digital hagfish in the cyberworld.
Purges and cancelling of people has been underway for some time now. These are all hallmarks of a totalitarian regime. Back in the days of Soviet communism, Andrei Sakharov, physicist and Nobel Prize winner, was similarly exiled and vilified in the Soviet Union.
Edward Snowden has pointed out [on RT] :
“Facebook officially silences the President of the United States,” Snowden tweeted on Thursday in reaction to the news. The whistleblower said the decision “will be remembered as a turning point in the battle for control over digital speech.”
….In a follow-up message, Snowden warned that those celebrating the suspension should “imagine a world that exists for more than the next 13 days, and this becomes a milestone that will endure.”
The tech tyrants are the real rulers of America now; Biden and Harris the mere figure heads. As Brendan O’Neill points out on Spiked online:
Not only does cancel culture exist — it is the means through which the powerful, unaccountable oligarchies of the internet era and their clueless cheerleaders in the liberal elites interfere in the democratic process and purge voices they disapprove of. That’s what Twitter’s permanent suspension of Donald Trump confirms….
…The new capitalists’ cancellation of the democratically elected president of the United States is a very significant turning point in the politics and culture of the Western world. We underestimate the significance of this act of unilateral purging at our peril. It demonstrates that the greatest threat to freedom and democracy comes not from the oafs and hard-right clowns who stormed the Capitol this week, but from the technocratic elites who spy in the breaching of the Capitol an opportunity to consolidate their cultural power and their political dominance….
…Twitter’s ban on Trump is extraordinary for many reasons. First, there’s the arrogance of it. Make no mistake: this is the bosses vs democracy; corporates vs the people; exceptionally wealthy and aloof elites determining which elected politicians may engage in online discussion, which is where most political and public debate takes place in the 21st century. Those who cannot see how concerning and sinister it is that a handful of Big Tech companies have secured a virtual monopoly over the social side of the internet, and are now exploiting their monopolistic power to dictate what political opinions it is acceptable to hold and express in these forums, urgently needs a wake-up call.
Secondly, there is Twitter’s deeply disturbing justification for why it suspended Trump. It says Trump’s account ran the ‘risk’ of ‘inciting violence’. And yet the two tweets of his that it cites do nothing of the sort. In one, Trump describes his voters as ‘great American patriots’ and insists they will have a ‘GIANT VOICE’ in the future. In the other he confirms that he will not be attending the inauguration of Joe Biden. That’s it. In what warped moral universe can such standard, boastful Trump-made statements be interpreted as calls for violence?
And it’s not only politics either. In the Age of Covid, the same left-wing totalitarianism is pervasive. Contrary scientific viewpoints are now being outlawed and censored. The British sociologist, Frank Furedi, in discussing the necessity of scepticism in all things, especially science, remarks:
Over the past, pandemic-dominated year, this crusade against scepticism has gone into overdrive. For instance, Big Tech companies like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have used the threat posed by the pandemic to justify censoring and regulating debate over Covid-related policy. When YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced that anything that contradicted the recommendations of the World Health Organisation would be removed, she seemed to have mistaken herself for God’s voice on earth.
This is the position we are in. An arrogant shower of ignorant degenerates seeks to annihilate everything in Western Civilization. They have gained power in the USA and in other European countries. Freedom is ending. Unless…we do something about it.
With regard to the Contretemps at the Capitol, don’t include me with the weak-kneed shower saying how terrible it was and how it “was a blow against American democracy” or any such self-serving codswallop. All last year, the Democrat party, rotten mayors, and bent Governors, all supported and abetted the rioting mobs of anarchists and the BLM rabble. Thousand of livelihoods were destroyed, billions of dollars in damage, and the rule of law openly violated and supported by Democrat politicians, especially comradess Harris who offered to front bail money for arrested thugs.
I must admit to a little schadenfreude seeing those sniveling Democrats hiding under their desks getting a little of their own medicine – it doesn’t feel so good when you’re on the receiving end, does it? Besides, the damage to property and ordered government during the Democrat riots was a million times worse.
To all the “Never-Trumpers”, the fake conservatives, and the milquetoast RINOs, and the George Will paneled-salon ponces– this is what your attempts to undermine the Trump presidency have resulted in. God rot the lot of you.
I have no doubt that the 74 million votes that Trump received will be back with a vengeance. The Fake News hacks, the nomenklatura, and the assorted cretinous mobs on the streets had better take note.
