|You. SOON. Is that a good look for you?|
We didn't love freedom enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation....We purely and simply deserved EVERYTHING that happened afterward."
Those words ring down through all time. And they really do wound my heart with a monotonous languor. And yes, I chose that phrase a-purpose. Capice?
Sound familiar, people? You don't feel like you understand what's really happening?
You don't love freedom enough to stand up for it at the only chance you're ever going to get, consequences be damned? Burglars and despots rarely send out appointments. It's come-as-you-are. Ready or not. You think you're going to magic your way out of that date?
If so, you can expect to deserve the same EVERYTHING that Solzhenitsyn and his fellows received. In spades.
Too harsh? Try it in a lighter vein:
"We're afraid! We might get in trouble!"
Well you can just kiss my ass.
I don't care if you puss out. I don't care if Trump even throws in the towel. (And I don't think he will, but even if he did, it wouldn't matter.) This ain't about him, nor simple partisan shoving at the trough. It's about the entire idea of America. You're willing to wimp out on that? Enjoy your boxcar ride, and see what coloring inside the lines gets your Quisling ass down the road.
There isn't going to be another chance in 2022, 0r 2024. Or EVER.
This was the last election where you had a shot.
This was the last election where you had a shot. There will never be another.
There won't be another free election in your lifetime, for anyone who reads this, unless this gets addressed, and I mean but now.
Not in a minute, next week, end of the month, nor 6 months, not in a year, not in NeverNeverLand fairytales somewhere down the road.
This month and next. By them. Or by you. Or, please God, by Us.
And the absolute final expiration date on that is Jan. 20, 2021. At noon, EST.
That's the absolute Go To Hell date.
If TPTB won't fix it before then, they have no reason to fix it, ever.
And they won't, nor show any sign of doing anything other than ignoring you, wholesale.
And if they don't do it RFN, what're you gonna do about it?
Vote at them?
That's risible, and derisible, simultaneously.
Any fucktard sumbitch talking about "regrouping" and "continuing on forward" for "next time" that hasn't factored in ropes, bullets, and napalm in their calculus is talking out their ass.
There isn't going to BE a "next time".
That outcome was the whole point of THIS time.
"Imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever."
Absolutely god-damned right.
That's the message, delivered with precision, clarity, and finality.
If you don't get that, in your bones, you're self-selecting to be collateral damage.
And about you, if you wallow in that amidst your self-pity, IDGAF.
"This could never happen here. We're a democracy." - Venezuela, 1998
Nobody is coming to save you. This ain't the movies, and you ain't John Wayne.
Why? "Because we're here, lad. Nobody else. Just us."
If you have a leader, follow them.
If you don't, BE one.
If TPTB go through with this, if they think they can brazen the theft of an election, a presidency, and an entire country, simply because they don't care about what it costs them, there's but one answer to that.
In the absence of orders or direction from higher authority, find someone or something Communist, and destroy it. Lather, rinse, repeat.
That's going to be the Prime Directive for some good time. Count on it.
IF you love freedom enough.
