Don't worry, Tommy

It's cute that Thomas Friedman thinks he won't be personally involved in the civil war he considers to be a possibility:

During an appearance on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman expressed his concern over what could happen in November if there were enough doubt about the outcome of the November 3 presidential election.

Friedman warned such a lack of confidence in the American election process could lead to a second civil war.

“I found it stunning and surprising,” Friedman said of President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to commit to accepting the possible outcome of election results. “Anderson, you know, I began my career as a journalist covering Lebanon’s second civil war and its history. And I’m terrified to find myself ending my career as a journalist covering America’s potential second civil war in its history.”

Friedman and other "journalists" will no doubt be surprised to discover that they won't just be covering America's Civil War 2.0. They'll be considered enemy combatants:

Never in the history of the United States has there been such a massive and sustained purchasing of arms and related equipment by civilians. What's going on now absolutely dwarfs the 2008-2009 panic when Obama was elected. Spend a little time in a big box store or gun shop and you'll hear at least a couple of panicked normies looking for ammo in common pistol calibers while the salesmen try to respond without laughing or showing their exhaustion from answering the same question for the fiftieth time that day. Ammo is the scarcest and most expensive it's ever been. Meanwhile, more mundane items like steel ammo boxes and reloading presses are pretty much gone by now too. That's never happened before.

''Friedman is Jewish. He attended Hebrew school five days a week until his Bar Mitzvah, then St. Louis Park High School, where he wrote articles for his school's newspaper. He became enamored with Israel after a visit there in December 1968, and he spent all three of his high school summers living on Kibbutz HaHotrim, near Haifa. He has characterized his high school years as "one big celebration of Israel's victory in the Six-Day War."''

We have built up an "elite" class over the past 30 years that consists of symbol manipulators, politicians and bureaucrats, academics, media people, and various charlatans, pundits, and hypesters that simply produces nothing of value. Thomas Friedman is just a typical example of this people. The effect of this chattering class is so pernicious that I'm beginning to think they really have to go away for anything resembling a functional society can re-emerge. Machiavelli called this chattering class "the gentry" and unequivocally states in several places in "The Discourses" that functional societies simply kill them and do not allow them to exist.

Blogger SacrificialLamb September 26, 2020 6:11 PM  

"Potential" civil war, Tommy? More like "inevitable". Anyone who's been paying attention knows this.

(((Friedman))) was deliberately DECEPTIVE in that interview with CIA operative, Anderson Cooper.....who just couldn't stop himself from using the CIA term, "conspiracy theory" like a CLUB. Using that term so often and so ruthlessly will inevitably backfire on them in a major way.

Millions of ordinary people absolutely LOATHE the media, and now know that it's a Talmudically JEWISH institution. Has Friedman figured out how much he and (((his kind))) are now hated, compared to a quarter century ago? All those years of good will for both the news media and the Jewish people are quickly vanishing. I really don't think he fully understands the massive shift in the public mood (and public awareness) yet. Friedman is a Boomer, a "Chosenite", and a worm-tongued "journalist". Where does he think he stands in the coming conflict? My guess is that he's still partially in denial about what's coming. He understands that a civil war will happen, but does he understand that the (((media))) will NOT be perceived as a "neutral party" in the coming conflict....but rather, as an enemy? It's possible he suspects it, which could explain his panic.

Yes, Friedman was extremely deceptive in that interview, but his panic is REAL. He and his masters plotted and schemed to create this situation, but he's suddenly panicking NOW? Why now?

Anyone with three or more functional brain cells knows that Biden is a creepy and corrupt child sniffer with dementia, and his running mate, "Heels Up Harris", is a middle-aged spinster with no children.....and thus, no personal stake in the future after she dies.

Meanwhile, the creepy and corrupt Biden is so senile now that he can't competently run a lemonade stand, let alone be president of a nation......AND HIS HANDLERS KNEW THIS.

Millions of ordinary people know this, and they also know that if Biden wins (via election fraud).....we'll have "President Kameltoe" within 90 days or less of Biden becoming President. No matter who wins, a massive bloody violent civil war is inevitable....either within a few months, or within the next few years (a decade from now AT MOST). These people wanted a civil war for so long, so why does the prospect of one suddenly make them so afraid? Don't these people want what they think they want any more?

It's so strange that the "Prometheans" have access to the resources of a massive worldwide surveillance state, and yet they have so little understanding of what's really happening out there at the street level. The problem with pushing a (((narrative))) for so long, is that they start to believe some of their own lies.

"Confirmation bias" is very real.

Late 2012 into mid 2013 into was roughly the same intensity following the Sandy Hook massacre.

I had ordered 1,200 rounds of Israeli 5.56 after 9/11 because I knew Muslims would hate to get shot by Jewish ammo. I have preserved 600 to date by shooting a mix of my own, great quality stuff, and Russian.

I have a close copy of my M16A2, from my service, and my wife has a very fun 16" copy of the M4, both in semi. I have an extra lower for the inevitable friend who asks for one.

When Trump got in and the mini riots started I got lots of ammo for my pistols.

I am not ready to take the fight to anyone else, but we have enough to cover us until the neighbor militias start.

As a former Marine MP, I always thought urban warfare needed grenades, SAWs, and mortars, in addition to the rifles. The democrat summer taught me the early phases need fat dikes delivering uhauls with axe handles, press jackets, pistols, and lighters/kero to start fires.

I have been wondering how the news will function when people on the right get tired of the fresh faced girl reporters always lying for the other side.

To actually win, the Right needs to destroy most of the institutions of the US. Has to destroy the public education system, the university system, the media, most of the various foundations, and most of the entertainment industry. An election and 4 more years doesn't really put the destruction of all those institutions on the table, whereas the civil war he speaks of has the destruction of all of those institutions as pretty much a byproduct. Provoking a civil war is basically the only way the Left can actually lose, were we to view this as a wargame like the Long Twilight Struggle for instance. It's also the only way the Right can actually win, as opposed to losing less quickly.

They think they'll be able to walk away with a few powerful, influential states, when the more likely outcome is them holing up in burned out cities, getting picked off when they venture too far out into the countryside. Sure, cities are richer than the countryside and have access to travel hubs and port facilities, but that's going to do a fat lot of good when the EBT runs out and the plumbing stops working.

"where he ripped Hawaiians for being some of the stupidest, most intellectually lazy people on Earth."

To be fair, the occupants of Hawaii are 99% or more not Hawai'ian, but rather some mix of mostly Samoans with some other pacific islanders. They of course are all convinced that they are natives. See the South Park episode that expertly mocks them without ever actually showing one, probably because they're too ugly to accurately depict in such a stylistically simple cartoon.

Oh, and they're not just intellectually lazy, they're physically lazy as hell too. Source: Lived there for five years.

You want to see what the real natives looked like, look at the Thai and Phillipinos, they're a lot closer to the look than the "natives".

The transformation of the media into enemy combatants is nearly complete, with rioters wearing "Press" badges are providing medical aid, intel, C&C and actively participating in the rioting. This will throw a purifying cow down the only real well in the country.

Smart CW'ers will use this as a marker, similar to epaulets designating officers.

And so it will go, those who anticipated, encouraged and even rooted for CW, will be its early victims.

Lanny,Lanny,Lanny, the only parts of Michigan that are blue are the major metro areas. All of rural Michigan is red and heavily armed. We will let the leftists go if they ask nice but you may be sure that we will stack them like cordwood if they cause trouble.

Haha!

The most intelligent people from Hawaii I've met and gotten to know were both white:a very attractive girl who went to Caltech and an old friend who is now a professor at a well-known US university. I've met several dozen others over the years. This is anecdotal, of course, but there it is...

Samoans...Lots of them in LA, where I grew up. I once had a Samoan student whose physical fitness test results revealed that he was 5'9", 230 pounds. He had some grey hairs too. No joke.

Naturally, he was the entire offensive line for the 5th grade football team.

I remember the ammo drought of 2012-2013, and swore I would not be subject to irrational market whims again. At last inventory I had 1500rds 5.56, 2500rds 7.62x39, and better the 10000rds assorted spread over 4 calibers. I bought when it was cheap and available, and am now immune to the panic. I also buy my TP in large packs, and was not effected by the shortage.
I just recently adopted the 5.56 as a cartridge, and as such only have 3 platforms that burn it, but have 5 SKS, and a Norinco AKS from 31 years ago, and they were our emergency caliber. At the time I bought them I didn't pay more than 150$ except cor the last SKS I paid 250$ for it. The AK was under 400, back then, and I only keep it because its already paid for. My children all were supplied with SKS as emergency home defence rifles, and I adopted one to keep logistics simple.
Anyone who is just now starting out is way behind the curve, but welcome to buy into the game, it will just cost more to catch up.
The current events have made me reconsider a single point sling as a carrying method, the Kenosha Kid would have been less successful with either a vickers or a 3 point type sling, and although I hope to never have to compete in the kenosha mile, it was illuminating to watch his abilities.
I am a combat zone veteran of 2 declared campaigns, but was a pouge, and have never fired a live round at another person with the intent to hit them, and bope to retire with that record intact. I am very skilled at rifle and pistol shooting and have competed in target sports in the last 4 decades, so I know the skills are there, but have never had to use them. If it must happen let it happen soon so my grand children only learn about it in history books, and don't see or hear it go down real time.

I just realized that, thanks to Covid Mania, we literally have telephone sanitizers now.

"Friedman and other "journalists" will no doubt be surprised to discover that they won't just be covering America's Civil War 2.0. They'll be considered enemy combatants:"

Since they like whining about the "McConnell Rule" so much, rub it in that this is just the Clinton rule applied domestically.
