And The Drum Beats On...

h/t WRSA

Today, this thoughtful essay from Malcolm Pollack:
"'Because the next Democrat president might be the last president of a free America, and then we will have to shoot our way out of socialism.' -[from Sarah Hoyt]
That’s it exactly: we are desperate. We know how close we are to the edge, to the dissolution of civilized order into chaos and tyranny. We can feel in our bones the implacable hatred of our would-be commissars for everything we believe is good and right and true — along with a growing understanding that their hatred doesn’t stop at our traditions and beliefs. As long as we live and breathe, we are a threat. If the blood-soaked history of the twentieth century can teach us anything at all, it should teach us that it will not be enough to see us displaced and destroyed. They will want us dead and gone.
One of the milestones along the road to civil war is the normalization of violence as a rational response to a dehumanized enemy, followed soon after by an eagerness for general conflict."

We, along with many others, have been telling you the same thing, for years.
When the legacy media pundits are starting to trip over it, we've already passed Peak Reality. This one is just another datum to add to the graph.

When 200 compasses all point north as being in the same direction, you're got a pretty good handle on which direction you're heading. True in the actual wilderness, and true in the wilderness into which national political discourse has wandered. Nothing looks right, but there's a lingering overcast, and an oppressive heavy stench of decay, with a faint whiff of death nearby, but just beyond the fog and undergrowth.

We are entering what Sun Tzu called "death ground".
The place where wise generals dread to fight, and where the consequences for the loser are permanent.

There will be no retrograde, no feint, no headlong retreat.
We are heading into the civilizational Thunderdome:
Two men enter, one man leaves.

And the man who leaves will not be the same one who entered, when the contest is all over.

For those slower on the uptake, these are the Good Old Days.
Ahead lies a terrible struggle, endarkenment, and horrors better left unimagined.
Talking about them now would bring skepticism; describing them in the moment would show the poverty of mere words to contain them, and be wholly gratuitous at that point.

Steel your hearts now to what's coming. Savor the sights and sounds and smells of what is and what was in your lifetime, that some among you may someday convey them to generations unmarked by what is to transpire, that they might by some means restore and someday surpass the things which daily become but fond memories.

Get your grieving out of the way now. There'll be no time nor place for it in coming days, and afterwards, the weight and enormity of what you'll know would slay an elephant. Learn this lesson from history: there are no end of letters and books and stories and movies about the Second World War, terrible as it was. But of the great European slaughterhouse that was the First World War, scarcely a generation earlier, there is comparative silence. Hundreds of thousands of corpses filled a mile-wide No-Man's Land from the North Sea to the Alps, and the corpses were trodden and shelled and chewed up by rats for four long and horrible years. The scars mark that continent to the present day, a century later. Much of that generation was completely erased, crippling those countries even now, and hastening the demise of that continent under the relentless tide of demography.

For most of my lifetime, we rejoiced that our Civil War was a century earlier, and the whole of the continent itself entirely unscathed by either world war. And we were right to do so.

But that is about to change. Anywhere from a week to a generation from now, the relentless drumbeat of idiocy that cannot abide free men going about their days, and must control every waking moment, every word that escapes their lips, every thought that flits through their minds, and ultimately, every beating of their lifeblood, will be satiated with nothing less than victory, or a bayonet to the heart.

They think they want the conflict they would foment.

And they've abandoned any moorings of reason, logic, self-interest, or common sense, and any boundaries of decent or morally-bounded behavior to accomplish their nightmare of ultimate total control of all, by their chosen few, whom they assure us are oh-so-very-much-smarter than we Deplorables.

They are going to have to be not just beaten back, but utterly destroyed. All memory of them wiped from human reckoning. Not just their army destroyed, but their women killed, and their babies' heads smashed on rocks, and all those who cheered them on eliminated to the last man. Their livestock slaughtered, their temples of error pulled down until one stone lies not upon another, and their fields sown with salt, that nothing will ever grow there again. Like Carthage after the Third Punic War, which policy ensured for all time that there never came a Fourth Punic War.

And their calling cards are the same ones throughout history.
They want to shut you up.
They want to disarm you.
And then, free of your arguments and your arms, they want to kill you.

That's why they now openly proclaim the outright plan to strip the clear acknowledgements of the First and Second Amendments, and muse before God and everybody how joyful and pleasant it would be to come and round you up, and kill you.

Take such thoughts and such people exactly at their word.
Some historically-minded wonder what it would have been like if only someone had strangled Hitler in his crib. It would never happen, for the same reasons you aren't doing it now. You have half a Congress full of would-be führers, gruppenführers, and gauleiters, openly telling you what they want, and will do given the slightest chance, and yet nobody's fired so much as a single shot. And likely, nobody will. They wait until the columns march into whatever suffices for Poland these days before they'll recognize they let things go too far, and only pay attention too late. Pray the response is not too little.

The Jews who said "Never again!" got it wrong.
The truth of human history is "Again and again."

To believe otherwise is but delusional wishful thinking.
It's a warm and comforting psychosis much like end-stage hypothermia: one just nods off, and enters oblivion.

Life is struggle. Sometimes less, sometimes more. We who have known little struggle are about to get all too familiar with more. Life forms unequal to that struggle are culled mercilessly and pitilessly from existence.

Many of us try to stockpile needful things. Some of us limber up. Many pine and itch for the trumpet to finally sound, before time and infirmity render them unequal for the tasks they could compass in their younger days. Those too young to know what's to come chafe at that ignorance, wishing now they were in it, not knowing that when they are "in it" they would wish themselves at home in their beds, or anywhere else but where they shall be, if only wishing made it so.

Stock your larders. Sharpen your weapons. Fortify your walls. And gather your friends.
The hard-hearted ones. The ones who can deal with adversity. The ones who can laugh in the darkest days, and push on through the darkest nights.

Crybabies and mama's boys may die as well as any other, but they waste resources, and bring nothing of value.

What's going to come, eventually, is going to be a problem for two types of people:
Those who have no idea of what's coming.
And those who do.

10 years ago i read a book about the mutiny onboard the Russian battleship Potemkin. The remarkable thing for me was how bad things had to be before “regular life” changed dramatically.

I disagree that the babies heads need to be crushed (but that might be easier and more merciful in a time of limited resources)

M B Lamar said...

You gotta know folks were saying the exact same thing in 1969. And, to hammer the point home, 1949, and 1929. Those folks are dead now, their lives lived in sure anticipation of that which never came. Again and again, indeed.

McChuck said...

We do not predict the collapse of the civil society. We are merely reporting on what has already occurred.

Desert Rat said...

It is true that there have been many times in the past when some have believed that collapse and chaos are just around the corner and people have managed to avoid it. But there are also times when the collapse and chaos do happen and people find themselves in the midst of a living hell. The "modern age" is studded with genocides and massacres and I do not doubt for a moment that the victims for the most part either never saw it coming or believed that their neighbors or government would never act with such ruthless cruelty.

Trust in God but keep your powder dry, your nose in the air and your eye on the horizon. And organize, organize, organize.

I don't want the war. But it's likely, or likely to be necessary, for there are zero political solutions. The longer it's delayed, the deeper we sink, and the people who want us eliminated (destroyed, subjugated, or dead) become stronger, more entrenched, more dangerous and emboldened. If you're not already preparing, start, do so in earnest.

The upcoming 2020 election is a critical milestone in the socialist progression. Expect a maximum onslaught from the left-wing politicians in Congress, their captured mainstream media, their weaponized high-tech social media, minimal-to-zero support from the RINO politicians, and maximum election fraud. I've read "neither side will accept the outcome of the election" - this may well be correct. If the outcome becomes obvious well before-the-fact, expect maximum disruption and possible political violence to escalate as the final outcome approaches.

The Jews who said "Never again!" got it wrong.
The truth of human history is "Again and again."
As Rabbi Meir Kahane (who popularized the saying) said, “the motto Never Again does not mean that ‘it’ [a holocaust] will never happen again. That would be nonsense. It means that if it happens again, it won’t happen in the same way. Last time, the Jews behaved like sheep.”

Never again, but if again then not for free.

When did it really ever?

Marbury v. Madison, 14 years after ratification of the U.S. Constitution, was allowed to stand, in which one branch of government, on its own, decided that it would, on its own, be the arbiter of all that was (or not) lawful. And, Not. One. Finger. has ever been raised (save some words by President Jackson) to rollback the power-grab by one-third of the government.

I am thankful for my situation; I could have been born in Zimbambezi, with not enough sense to wipe the fly off of my eye. God is not in the dock; we cannot ignore why we are here on the X by ignoring how we got here. No sensible person argues with gravity, but everyone wants to box with God.

Return of the BOLSHEVIKS: The European People saw what was being done to the CHRISTIAN Ukranian/Russian People by the Bolshevick Jews, even though Americans never pay attention to what is going on. Do you think the actions of the JEWISH Bolsheviks just might have influenced Hitler's (and European Christian's) view of Jews. He did not "hate them for NO REASON" These crimes happened as Hitler was climbing the ladder and he KNEW what the Jews were doing to Christians, unlike America where Jewish Bolshevik actions were NOT REPORTED.

Try reading John Glubb's "The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival". It is a 26 page essay on how empires arise, thrive, enter a decay cycle and fall. His contention is that Empires last about 250 years (about 10 generations) and he outlines the stages that they ALL go through. Compare American history with the stages he describes and calculate how many years between 1776 and now ...I would say that the final stages are fully developed.

For the TL/DR types, he states:

The stages of the rise and fall of great nations seem to be:
The Age of Pioneers (outburst)
The Age of Conquests
The Age of Commerce
The Age of Affluence
The Age of Intellect
The Age of Decadence.

Decadence is marked by:
An influx of foreigners
The Welfare State
A weakening of religion.

Decadence is due to:
Too long a period of wealth and power
Love of money
The loss of a sense of duty.

The civil war could start in 2020 if we have a situation similar to 2016 where the President won the Electoral vote and the loser won the popular vote. We have 12 states that have enacted the popular vote and they would give their electoral votes to the popular vote winner and set up the battle lines. The popular vote people would back their presidential candidate and the electoral vote people would back their presidential candidate. Only way to solve the problem is war.

I had to read this paragraph a few times to understand exactly what you were getting at. Its truly a grave and important understanding, those words.

The true gravity of the situation at heart, one small comfort is that our side has the guns. For those of you reading this who are on the good side yet do not possess a firearm and sufficient ammo, begin doing something about it this week! If, like me, you grew up in a household devoid of firearms, then similarly (like me) go to the responsible guy at work or church with the NRA sticker on his truck and inquire about how to begin your education. Do it quickly.

One question that I ponder is this. While some small relief comes from the fact that our side has the guns, what comforts the other side? Seriously, I don't know. Guns, God, objective belief in Natural Law... you will find none of those there. So what do they have? What gives them pause - even if false - to believe they can emerge vistorious? Whatever the answer, I suspect it would provide great insight into why they will lose.

Without a combat MOS NCO to lead, I will die quickly in the Holocaust you imagine. Since looting has always been the basis of partisan war, my AO will run out of supplies quickly. So it's best to keep it lean so they find nothing of use in my home as I lock it shut and burn it to the ground with as many commies as I can entice inside.

Insanity and lack of understanding the nature of their opponents. I do not believe the Left in this country truly understands the dynamics of the situation, not the character of a number of people on the Right to tolerate, tolerate, explode. Larry Correia characterized the divide as, paraphrasing: the Left has a volume knob that goes from agitate through riot to occasional murder, the Right has a switch that goes from vote to kill freaking everything. I put the level on cultural misunderstanding between leftists that live in the United States versus Americans to be on the level with Japanese versus Americans at the start of World War II, and I don't think the Left has a Yamamoto to warn them.

I do take some heat from the fact the many people in Connecticut and New York state have taken a stand of noncompliance with firearm registration. That is a fairly easy compromise, but the vast majority have resisted. Also the Sheriff's in New Mexico and Washington saying they will refuse to disdain citizens at the whims of the Left us promising.

Easy to say we'll spring like a bear trap when finally pushed over the edge, but the reality will be very different.
I would wager almost all of us on the right have family, friends/associates, coworkers and neighbors who are left leaning.
Are you going to kill them? Or just stick to people you don't know but you know they're bad because they have a black facemask?
There will be no battle lines, no uniforms. People will switch sides or try to play both sides so they survive.
I thankfully live in a very small town. We know who the hardcore lefties are. We plan to clean them up with extreme prejudice. What's your situation? Still living in the big shitty? Who and how many can you trust? How do you identify the enemy when they look and act like everyone else?

Bracken's work is thorough and prescient when analyzing inner cities. The vast majority of the country is rural.
What will happen outside of urbania is a whole different ballgame, in my opinion. People will be assessed and judged based on their value. Niggers, Wiggers and all the other useless pieces of shit will be eliminated, and quickly. Skin color will not be a factor. When the cities have burned, people will survive on their abilities, not their perceived worth based on their skin color. We have everything here where we are, from Indians to Chinese to whatever.
My original comment was an effort to illustrate the futility of trying to establish the battle lines and judgements preconceived by the vast majority of those on the right.
You do not know, and will not know how to judge people when the SHTF, except on their individual proven merit.
You probably have more people you know with your skin color that will be a severe detriment to your ability to survive than those "other" races.
Be careful.

Your skin is your flag. Doesn't mean there aren't traitorous whites - 30% vote Democrat. (There are 200 million whites - but 6 million Jews are included in that number.)

When the music stops, if we have 120 million patriotic whites left, that will be a major victory. 90 million will still be a victory. We can recover from our WWI population.

The minorities i.e. blacks, browns, Asians are unified in one way, they hate whitey. Whether this is good or bad, right or wrong, up or down doesn't matter, it's the way things are. Those whites who are now pro diversity, gender confused, in touch with their inner child etc. will get their shit straightened out real quickly when the wheels come off or they will be dead.

In the political sphere there were two successful examples of this tribal thinking last November. OAC (D. Crazy Eyes) beat a Democrat, Joe Crowley who politically was about as left wing as OAC but an old white guy. Joe's district in Queens and the Bronx went from majority white to majority non-white when AOC won in the primary on a blatant racial appeal to non-whites. Dumb Joe Crowley never saw it coming.

The same thing happened with Michael Capuano (D. Somerville MA) whose district changed to non-white. Ayanna Pressley had moved from Chicago several years earlier and made a successful racial appeal to non-whites in the primary to win the election. Her district had changed from majority white to majority non-white over time. Both candidates had identical political positions, race was the deciding factor.

The same dynamics were at play in the governor's race in Georgia with 300 Lb. gap-toothed Stacey Abrams missing victory by inches. In Florida Andrew "Blue Gums" Gillum nearly beat Ron DeSantis in a close election. Both Democrats made straight up racial appeals to minorities demonizing whites.

The elections in Georgia and Florida were close because of the changing demographics of both states with the non-white percentage of the population increasing. This is also what got Ilhan Omar (D. Mogadishu) elected in Minnesota. Diversity is a biological weapon directed at white people, they want us dead. Some white people already know this hard lesson, others will learn it and some will die never learning it.

Get thee prepared because the storm is coming.
