The Great Silencing Proceeds

When I wrote this post, I had hoped that it would take much longer to get to this point. I’m not at all surprised at what is happening, just how fast — and how open — it is going. See my posts on Phase II and Mask Dropping for additional thoughts.

They don’t just want to silence any and all opposition, they want to destroy any and all opposition. To be honest, to hold power, they will have to do so, and literal killing has been going on for months now. The media has relentlessly suppressed the political assassinations of, and attacks on, Trump supporters, focusing instead on the few real instances of any pushback at their brownshirts. Sadly, I believe that killing by the progressives and their brownshirts will soon go wholesale. Be prepared.

The efforts to demonitize opposition is also rapidly escalating. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has entered the fray, along with other major companies. Look at what happened to Parler, and how even family and those not directly associated with attempts to create bastions of free speech have had all means of funding/banking suspended (see Gab’s founder as but one example).

Mainstream media continues to fall deeper into the sewer, with more mainstream reporters turning against independent journalists. In the media, it has been widely ignored for some time that “journalists” in Portland and elsewhere have engaged in active efforts to put Andy Ngo’s life in danger.

The destruction of lives continues, with the call to ban anyone who worked for or supported Trump already bearing fruit. Here is but one example of people being driven to suicide. Yes, there are more, go dig.

They hate you, they really, really hate you and literally do want you dead. When they talk of camps, re-education, ending careers and threating to destroy any who employ anyone who worked for or supported Trump, or killing anyone who worked for or supported Trump, they are being quite literal, not figurative. They mean it. Believe them. Now, they are going to move even more into the open. Also, keep in mind that hate is all they have. They have no love, no forgiveness, no Grace; and, while that will eventually will turn them on themselves, they will have no compunction about and will celebrate every destruction and death.

The next major operation will be creating another incident to use to push not just gun control, but gun confiscation. They’ve started by turning the demonstration at the Capitol into such a moment, but need more. All the more reason I urge anyone and everyone to boycott the inauguration and especially the false-flag armed protests being talked about. They hate to be ignored and they hate to be ridiculed. A boycott hits both, so use it. Do not fall for false flag events, don’t do something stupid and give them what they need. Make them fabricate it, so that more and more see what lies beneath the masks that have been removed.

Meantime, fight back. Get active in forums that Big Tech has not yet brought down. Read, listen, think, and share. Then, start local. There is a reason George Soros has been funding people in local elections. A good start is to find out who took such funding, and primary them and support a decent replacement. Support not establishment candidates, but good people who will do the job and follow the Constitution. Cleaning out the establishment politicians and the progressives locally isolates those in DC and chips away at their power.

Go read the posts from Sarah A. Hoyt, especially her posts Dance To The Line and Line Dancing: How To Be A Scary Moron. There are others I will mention later, but Sarah has already surved socialism once and has insights many do not.

Hold Fire

If you are no reading the fearless reporting of Mr. Andy Ngo, you should be. The man has risked and IS risking his life by providing honest coverage of Antifa and the riots in Portland (and in Seattle). They caught him once and beat him badly enough he was hospitalized with bleeding in the brain.

He has documented a number of the tactics being used by the rioters, which is to lure police/LE out so that they can be swarmed. The other thing Antifa, CHAZ/CHOP, and others are doing is not peaceful protest; rather, it is an effort to use violence to provoke a strong response from LE which will then be used my enablers in the media to make a claim of brutality. Indeed, many of the smaller attacks around the country being done on individuals is to provoke a deadly response, again so that claims can be made of racism, excessive force, need to confiscate guns, and to take extraordinary legal actions against not only the persons involved, but any who are not of the chosen few. They are also encouraging people on the edge to be violent, and when those do go off, they can claim innocence even as the acts stoke the fracturing of America and increase the odds of force/excessive force being used in return.

Given media complicity and enabling, these are effective strategies for now. The restraint of federal LE has deprived them for now of what they desperately want, even though the strong response could result in injury or deaths of their own people. The the calling off of local LE by various mayors, have both allowed the riots/arson (and reportedly rape, murder, assaults) to run unchecked to the detriment of their communities.

The problem is, that the violent insurrection — which is what this is, as it is not a peaceful/”mostly peaceful” protest — will have to be faced at some point. These actions are not likely to fade away as would be normal, as those involved have stockpiles, advanced gear, national/international coordination, and continued funding to draw on. These actions will increase, and be deliberately spread across the country as the election nears. When that happens, the responses are not likely to be pretty. Keep in mind that any use of force, even if mild, will be played as excessive by both those behind the insurrection and their fellow-travelers in the media. Trust not the narrative. Do not fall for it.

It may be that the quiet actions in arresting those accused of federal crimes by federal LE, infiltration, and going after the coordination and instigators will pay off. Such arrests and trials are the first real pushback these groups have had, and a number of those arrested are reportedly shocked to find out there could be real consequences to their actions. More of this will have an effect, but how much remains to be seen.

Meantime, watch the videos by Mr. Ngo and other independent journalists. Watch the violence hurled at LE and anyone who gets in the way of the mob. This is what you are not seeing on mainstream media (for the most part). Then, think about the restraint being shown. Right now, it is the best way to not give those in insurrection what they want.

To be honest, I’m inclined right now to agree with James Woods that the best response would be to move all federal functions out of Portland and other cities allowing and enabling the riots/arson/etc. Then let those cities eat themselves. No federal bailouts, no federal help, etc. Yes, Antifa and other groups will try to follow where those federal functions go, but those communities are not as likely to enable/allow the destruction in their own cities; and, the rest of the nation (and world) can see what happens when such violence goes unchecked by the local authorities.

Keep in mind that, as others have rightly said, this is an information/psyop action, not a kinetic action. The response needs to be information/psyop for now. Spread the videos and truth as far and wide as possible. Show the people who have dropped the masks, as what lies beneath is not pretty. Believe those people when they tell you what they are and what they plan to do, for they would not have dropped the masks unless they were ready and willing for the world to see what truly lies beneath. Also, if you are in one of those cities where mayors have refused to let the police do their jobs, ordered them to stand down or stand back, move. Above all, vote. This election truly will decide the fate of the Republic for the next several generations.

Meantime, defend yourself at need but avoid the provocations. Step back, step away, and let their efforts fail. Spread the truth about what is going on, as it is the best way to destroy the narrative and to let reality show.
