I’m tired of the terrorist attacks and the platitudes that follow. I’m tired of the RIPs, the waving of the country’s flag who was attacked, the twitter hashtags, the candlelight vigils, etc., all of which will do nothing. I’m tired of voters of the left and the right each claiming an attack is a false flag operation. I’m tired of left and right politicians mouth empty promises when both know the bipartisan American war machine is partially responsible for the attacks. I’m also tired of shit like this, especially given the fact that little girls at a pop concert were ripped to shreds by a suicide nail bomb just last week:
I’m tired of someone on the left pulling a stunt that nobody on the right would get away with had the POTUS been a Democrat. Remember the rodeo clown who was crucified for his Obama skit, the same one who had done the skit before on George W. Bush without issue? I remember. Pepperidge Farm also remembers this double standard going back several decades and I’ve been tired of this double standard for that long.
For what it’s worth, Carrot Top, I mean Griffin, issued an apology, but I didn’t watch it given the high likelihood that it was insincere. Apparently the beheading of Trump was a video shoot, which I also have not watched.
The whole thing reminds me of 10:10’s No Pressure short film from 2010, where school kids are blown up, body pieces and blood flying everywhere, for the simple act of not agreeing to the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming fraud. In both instances, there was an enormous amount of time to think that perhaps what was being done would grossly offend people. So either they are that grotesque of people, or the bubble they live in is so grotesque that nobody within it realizes how grotesque they are.
Either way, it’s not good. And for the first time I’ve ever seen, the right is actually fighting back on this nonsense in some cases. The Montana House candidate, Greg Gianforte, allegedly body slammed reporter Ben Jacobs for the simple crime of Jacobs being a douche on the left. And then Gianforte went on to win his election by 7 points. As of the past couple of days, Trump is blocking the left twitter trolls on his twitter feed, something that has been long overdue. And the biggest left twitter troll there is, William LeGate, got run off of twitter by 4chan.
This comes after leak after leak to the press, ultimately indicating that the US intelligence community wants to bring down Trump in a coup. Whether or not this is the vaguely-defined “deep state”, I don’t know, but it’s startling to see since none of the leaks indicate Trump doing anything wrong – tidbits are released so the mainstream media can blare big headlines insinuating something devious was afoot, then come out later and say that nothing was out of the ordinary.
Meanwhile, it’s been revealed that Obama performed illegal spying stunts worse than Nixon and hardly a word has been spoken about it in the mainstream media, save for USA Today. I had a conversation with a good friend just after Obama’s second term started that I felt this was probably going on. I was greeted, of course, with the “are you smoking crack?” face.
And for the first time ever after casually surfing a number of sites, I’m reading a column openly talking about the possibility of civil war. While the author is suspect, civil war seems to be a distinct possibility given the current political climate in America, and if (when) it occurs, it’s the left who wanted it more – between the mainstream media’s attempt to start a race war a couple of years ago, the left’s behavior for the past 6 months, and the leaks now, it’s clear the left is pushing for it more and more. I hope they become more careful with what they’re wishing for. CNN letting Griffin go after I wrote this article is a start.
In other news, the past two episodes of The Leftovers have been very good and I’ll have a series review once the final episode airs this Sunday.
