Our speech is violence, their violence is speech. And of course, when there is no violence, the Enemy will plop on a MAGA hat, wrap themselves in a Gadsden flag, initiate some, then blame it on us, as was the case on Black Wednesday. For me to get all worked up about corrupt degenerates on the left and pseudo-right in DC, in the propaganda organs or in show biz and everywhere in between strutting, preening and foaming at the mouth with their sub-literate drivel is a waste of time.
What I am worked up about is that rigging an election and overthrowing the country merely to seize power is not the end game. It's just the opening gambit. Forget about what's in store in terms of laws and edicts handed down from the rogue's gallery of hardcore Marxist freaks, geeks and thugs that now control the Legislative and Executive branches with little to fear from an at best neutered Judiciary.
Any opposition will now be considered seditious and subject to imprisonment.
Think that that's hyperbole? Think again:
During a live stream on her Instagram page, Ocasio-Cortez was asked by a viewer if, to help with national healing, there were congressional plans to institute any "truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives."
The socialist congresswoman replied that, yes, indeed, she and some of her colleagues have been exploring media literacy initiatives to help "rein in" the press and combat misinformation after last week's riot at the U.S. Capitol. "It's one thing to have differentiating opinions but it's another thing entirely to just say things that are false,"
Ocasio-Cortez added. "So that's something that we're looking into." Oh, are they? Now, perhaps in the political systems favored by AOC citizens are impelled to look to government for ultimate truth, but that's not the case in the United States.
At least, not yet.
Here, the Constitution "reins in" Congress from intruding on the speech of citizens, journalists, or any private institutions, not the other way around. We need only point to our media "factcheckers," journalists with political and ideological biases who have regularly, and arbitrarily, labeled completely debatable contentions as falsehoods, while either ignoring or justifying scores of other unsettled contentions.
Are these the arbiters of facts who will be manning the government commission appointed by those storied truth-tellers in congress?...
For those unaware, the "truth and reconciliation commission" the AOC fan asked about was most famously used in South Africa after the fall of apartheid as means of "restorative justice."
The insinuation by those who use this phrase is that 74 million Americans who voted for the Republican presidential candidate are racist thugs in need for similar programs. It's a disgusting smear, and speaks to the dangerous and illiberal inclination of progressives.
Not so long ago, 2008 to be precise, a number of people were raising the alarm bells about the then Democrat candidate for president and his connections to some of the most rabidly anti-American radicals including Bill Ayers, the former head of the Weathermen terrorists, whose bombs left a trail of bodies and terror from coast to coast in an attempt to overthrow the government.
Larry Grathwohl, a Vietnam vet managed to infiltrate the group and became an FBI informer. He recalled sitting in on one of their meetings in the early 70s in what the author of this piece (a tribute to Grathwohl after his death in 2013) described as "a kind of Wannsee Conference at which WUO [Weather Underground Organization] members plotted the murder of 25 million Americans.
"I brought up the subject of what's going to happen after we take over the government: we become responsible then for administrating 250 million people. And there was no answers. No one had given any thought to economics, how you're going to clothe and feed these people.
"The only thing that I could get was that they expected that the Cubans and the North Vietnamese and the Chinese and the Russians would all want to occupy different portions of the United States.
"They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the counter revolution and they felt that this counter revolution could best be guarded against by creating and establishing reeducation centers in the Southwest where would take all the people who needed to be reeducated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be.
"I asked, well, what is going to happen to those people that we can't reeducate that are diehard capitalists and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
"And when I say eliminate I mean kill -- 25 million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well known educational centers and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious."
One chilling idea WUO leaders entertained was working enemies of the revolution to death in labor camps, something many so-called progressives today would no doubt favor doing to Tea Party supporters.
And here we are in 2021. The heirs of Ayers, BLM and Antifa, have bombed, napalmed and lain waste to at least a dozen cities across the nation, only this time with the approval of, and quite probably at the behest of the Democrat Party, with the same goal: the overthrow and destruction of the United States.
And once again ...
