It started with the Republic-destroying shift from investigating Crimes by following Evidence where it might lead, to investigating People The Current Faction Hates until “they” find something, anything, no matter how petty. Punctuated with; if that doesn’t work, demand that a negative be proven.
It started with AML/KYC. The blanket accusation of Money Laundering hidden behind the lie of “regulation.” An accusation from which you must prove your innocence. Even if you accomplish this feat, there are still arbitrary limits of your own money you’re not allowed to touch, just cuz.
If you demand further explanation for why your basic human rights are being trampled upon, it’s “drug money” and “human trafficking” and “terrerismzzzz!!!” If you ask to face your accuser and his evidence, you are immediately shut out with the assumption that you clearly must be a criminal because “You have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide!”
It started with FATCA/FBAR. Satoshi Nakamoto cited FATCA/FBAR as the key encroachment among many for creating Bitcoin.
From this, it grew into the monster of Deplatforming and False Accusations and Endless Investigations of Hated People we have today.
They practiced on nobodies like me. From Gun Owners to Free Speech. One at a time, The Hangman came, and good men did nothing.
I told you it was coming since I was a kid. I saw the seeds planted. You told me I was a fool…
This is how we find ourselves in East Germany 2.0
Here we are. The self-appointed “good men” did nothing. Well, that’s not true. They threw The Messengers (I’m one of them) under the bus.
There are a few analogous references throughout history. Cassandra, The Fourth Man, the ubiquitous “kill the messenger” reference…
Now, seeing all of the warnings they dismissed turn out to be true, Republitards know it’s too late. We’re already past the event horizon. The time to resist was decades ago. This is the endgame. No need to spring the trap. “Good men” sat there blithely as it was built around us all, backstabbing The Messengers every time one dared raise his voice in alarm.
This is why the Republitards never take a stand. They’re just tripping their friends as they run from the DemonRat Zombie Hoarde. They know they already killed off too many of their friends to Stand and Fight with any hope of success. This is why it’s getting obvious that DemonRats and Republitards are two sides of the same coin. It’s a one party system. The DemonRats attack, the Republitards sit on their thumbs and let it happen, lamenting how sad that was, just like a school shooting…
When the nation was founded, the enemy was considered overwhelmingly insurmountable. “When will we be stronger?” Patrick Henry asked.
“They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?”
Replace “British guard” with Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Tesla… They’re in everything, watching you. More than happy to do the bidding of the Fedcoats. Policing your actions by cutting off your livelihood if you commit wrongthink (Patreon, Twitter, HR Departments and Government Offices the world over packed with SJWs). Freedom is Slavery!
You invited Stasi 2.0 into your home. The Huxlian begat the Orwellian, because you begged for it. You are now bound hand and foot.
This was how the Revolutionary War managed to succeed. There was not yet a British guard stationed in every home, looking over your shoulder. Spying on every conversation. Watching you everywhere you walk or drive.
But, now there is a Fedcoat stationed in every home. Right in your pocket! You paid top dollar for Android/iOS/Windows 10! I motherfucking told you… Even Linux has been invaded by gender and race quotas.
It was gradually being put in place, and I warned you it was happening. Now it’s too late. We’re past the point of no return. All that remains is the endgame, and you’re finally noticing?
“They” resist with platitudes such as “transparency?” So, we’re finally going to Audit the Fed?
No, they’re going to Audit the non-believers! Not just your bank records, you entire life. Did you say a mean thing to a Loony Liberal? You’re finished. Did you say “Loony Liberal” even with no reference to a specific person, but merely suggesting that the ideology is defective? Oh, no, it doesn’t stop there. If you don’t walk through the door espousing love of the post-modernist neo-marxist agenda, you’re already suspect. This is the true purpose of virtue signaling and non-sequitur “hate the right people” dog-whistling rhetoric. It’s in the open now…
They know so-called “good men” will continue to do nothing, and backstab any legitimately good man who would do something, anything, even the wrongthing.
This is why I respect mass shooters. I can relate. It makes perfect sense. They can’t enunciate/articulate it, as most who are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore…
But, I can. How dare I…
It’s a basis of military strategem to deal with a problem while it is small, thus requiring minimal force. Waiting too long means more force is needed, and this is always undesirable.
Nip it in the bud.
But, the war was already lost, and no one even acknowledged that is, indeed, was a war at all. The so-called “good men” find themselves in a position that it is they which are the bud being nipped.
And yet, they still won’t even name the enemy, or acknowledge that there ever was a war, which they lost.
The United States of America decided to “go quietly” without even a whimper, much less a fight…
