They will not tolerate you

 Alexander Macris explains why you will not be spared the repressive tolerance, no matter how beautifully you cuck or how slavishly you denounce everyone to your right:

If you’re reading this, you’re probably right-of-center. But perhaps you feel safe from repressive tolerance because your view are so, well, gosh-darn tolerable. You obviously don’t advocate right-wing violence. You’re not a racist or misogynist or homophobe or bigot. You just want America to have a healthy free market, a strong military, fair trade, low taxes, equality of opportunity, and protection of every citizen’s constitutional rights. You’re just a mainstream, moderate, right-of-center conservative!

Do not fool yourself into believing that because you are a moderate, you are safe from the doctrine of repressive tolerance. Herbert Marcuse explains that the plan is:

withdrawal of tolerance from regressive movements before they can become active; intolerance even toward thought, opinion, and word, and finally, intolerance… toward the self-styled conservatives [Tactics] would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc.

Anyone who opposes any extension of public service, social security, or medical care, or who supports freedom of religion, is to be completely and utterly deplatformed. No freedom of speech, no freedom of assembly, no communication in word, print, or image.

This is the plan; this has always been the plan; all that has been lacking were the means to effectuate the plan. Those means are now at hand. If the President of the United States can be silenced, anyone can be.

And what happens if conservatives resist having their voices suppressed and repressed? Well that’s a problem that requires a solution. And as Herbert Marcuse explains:

[The solution] may require apparently undemocratic means…

I will leave it to the reader to ponder what sort of “undemocratic means” might be justified to solve the problem of conservative thought, opinion, word, action, or being.

This is why they begged for freedom of speech in the first place. To put themselves in a position where they could deny it to everyone else. They demanded the toleration of evil so that they could eventually refuse to tolerate good. The Sin of Jeroboam leads invariably to the destruction of the nation that is foolish enough to commit it.

"Freedom of speech" was a mistake convenient to the communist. Under normal circumstances if you assembled with others to steal property that would simply be an illegal conspiracy to commit mass theft.

"In a covenant…among proprietor and community tenants for the purpose of protecting their private property, no such thing as a right to free (unlimited) speech exists, not even to unlimited speech on one’s own tenant-property. One may say innumerable things and promote almost any idea under the sun, but naturally no one is permitted to advocate ideas contrary to the very covenant of preserving and protecting private property, such as democracy and communism. There can be no tolerance toward democrats and communists in a libertarian social order. They will have to be physically separated and removed from society. – Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Democracy — The God That Failed

Blogger LoneWolf January 10, 2021 4:55 PM  

The United States of America was the first nation in history to be founded without reference to a deity---there is not one mention of the word "God" in the Constitution of this nation. The absence of that word is no accident. The "Founders" were not religious men, nor were they even spiritual men. This fact has made all the difference in determining what the nation has become. We could say it this way: IF God exists and IF He has given to man certain instructions regarding man's behavior---the key instruction being to first of all include God in every undertaking, because to omit doing so will doom man to perdition---then it logically follows that the United States of America is merely witnessing the consequences of omitting God from its founding and from its government.
If one refuses to believe that God exists, then one is perplexed that all of this is happening to us right now. There is an old adage which used to be taught in the (true) Catholic Church: When the faith of Catholics is waning then the strength of God's enemies (the Talmudic Jews) is waxing, and vice versa. There is only one way out of this...

People need to think seriously about what "all assets activated" means. In a communist takeover, it's not just pink-hairs on social media and woke corporations like Starbucks that you have to worry about. Every liberal will be looking to draw blood from any Trump supporters in his area, or people who look like one, as revenge for the emotional pain and fear he's endured for four years. That's how you get people reporting on neighbors, co-workers, family members.

@6 LoneWolf Oh, please! The Founders did not want a government linked directly to Catholicism or Protestantism as in Europe. For obvious reasons. The Constitution is a blueprint for civic government. The owners' manual for my car doesn't mention God, either.

The US was a Christian nation but did not have a theocratic government. The government is force. Today, people opposed to Christian morality are using the power of government to force everyone to accept THEIR morality (immorality). To be intolerant of the "new morality" may require being opposed to the government.

On Friday, on his Youtube show, Dan Bongino railed against using political violence, saying the usual avenues (working harder during elections, running for office, joining local and state politics) hadn't been exhausted yet.

But that was just a day or so before Parler was knocked off the Internet. Bongino owns part of Parler.

I wonder what he'll say on Monday about using means of persuasion outside of the usual political methods?

There's a old saying, "Democracy is like a trolley car. Once you get to where you want go, you get off."

The modern left has now revealed just how many passengers they considered to be on that trolley car. It's a long list: America being a Republic, rule of law, freedom of speech, transparent and fair elections, equal protection under the law and equal application of the state monopoly on the use of force.

The left used all those principles, that conservatives believed applied to everyone, to gain political power and now they're getting off the trolley car. They're abandoning all those principles because they've grabbed enough power to do whatever they want. They won't let it go via the old democratic means that Bongino favors.

So what do we do now?

LoneWolf wrote:The United States of America was the first nation in history to be founded without reference to a deity---there is not one mention of the word "God" in the Constitution of this nation.

The US Constitution is not the foundational document of the United States. It can't be, for it is the US Constitution Version 2.0. There was another one before it. And there was a document before that: The Declaration Of Independence. That is the first and the foundational document of the United States; that is the one that asserts its nationhood.

The Declaration does mention a deity, furthermore it confesses that all of your rights are endowed inseparably to you by him -- not by any document or arrangement among men. The Constitution would come later and muddy the issue. From my reading of Vox's take of Jeraboam, this is where a Jeraboam type of thing happened. Here was the letting the nose of the camel into the tent. Particularly in the Bill of Rights, which enumerates all these guarantees. Many argued at the time against the Bill of Rights that this was a big mistake. It was feared to be a mistake precisely because it might mislead people to believe that all your rights came from the Constitution, from government documents, oh and by the way here they all are. I think they were correct that this would lead to all kinds of errors.

Alexander Macris explains:

"I will leave it to the reader to ponder what sort of “undemocratic means” might be justified to solve the problem of conservative thought, opinion, word, action, or being."

No need to ponder. I remember what Eric Swalwell's response to Joe Biggs when Biggs tweeted to Swalwell:

“So basically [Swalwell] wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your f--king mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.”

Which lead to Eric tweeting:

"And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit."

Even though Swalwell is no longer in CONgress, I believe the left when they tell us what they will do to us if we get out of line. They will have no problem nuking a red region as a show of force. It gives them a twofer. It reduces the US's population, and they get rid of a lot of domestic terrorists, along with their guns.

We developers have to be extremely detail oriented -- nuance matters, no brief summary is acceptable.

PLUS, learning from mistakes -- though painful and even embarrassing -- is commonplace, a willingness to admit being wrong is mandatory. Or we will get unpleasantly surprised by things blowing up in our face. Sometimes with permanently fatal consequences that can not be undone.

You put on your 3D glasses, grab your popcorn, open a beer and sit back and watch the Greatest Show On Earth. Ask yourself why would ((they)) be cracking down so violently and obviously BEFORE Biden is even inaugurated? Why not wait another 10 days? Ask yourself why ((they)) would release a video of Trump *conceding*, but with no actual concession, and with a random, superfluous camera angle change, one that lasted for, what was it, exactly 17 seconds? Odds of that? Negligible.

But..but this alt-media crackdown is going to stop Trump communicating with his supporters! A year or so ago, I noticed something strange with Trump's twitter feed. All the comments from the Krassensteins and what have yous had suddenly been relegated way down the feed, it was all patriots down to about the 50th comment. This tells you that White Hats are in control of Twatter, Facefuck and any social media co. of any influence you care to name, and have been for at least that long. That was merely a brief demonstration. What we are seeing currently seeing and will see accelerate over the next 10 days is the SCARE EVENT Q has promised. To wake up the Normies.

No prosecutions, except when people defended themselves. The pigs are in on it, too. And the pigs KNOW that they're in on it. It's all very obvious.

Then those "courtesies" were extended to the Burn, Loot, Murder assholes last year. No one cared when blacks were kill in those riots. No one knows their names. No one cares.

That's why I avoid crowds. Because I carry a gun and I don't want to have to draw it to protect myself from assholes attacking me with impunity, knowing that I'm the only one there with legal exposure. Knowing they can literally curb-stomp me on Twitter video and get away with it.

They are why this country is almost certainly over. And why if it really goes hot, no one will show mercy to the "Left" after it gets going.

I know I won't weep for any of them.

If you want free speech, support BDS and call for the banning of Zionism as ugly hate speech. It will make Jews think twice.

You want free speech? Go after Zionism as the #1 hate speech as it’s an ideology based on erasure of Palestine, apartheid against Arabs, endless wars for Israel, and a policy of Yinonist Jewish supremacism that says Jews should dominate the Middle East by using the imperialist muscle of America.

It is when people call out on Zionism as ‘hate speech’ that the Jewish elites will get cold feet about pushing the agenda to suppress free speech. Jews push ‘hate speech’ laws because they get to define what is ‘hate’, which is usually goy speaking truth to Jewish Power. According to Jewish Supremacists, goyim exist to serve Jews. If you say NO and demand goy liberation from Jewish Supremacism, Jews label YOU a supremacist.

But if WE get to define what ‘hate’ is and call out on the supremacist and genocidal nature of Zionism, then Jews will think twice about suppressing free speech to combat ‘hate’.

Also, you must support the rights of BDS. Both Democrats and Republicans are suppressing BDS, a call for equal justice for Palestinians. So, as long as Trumpists and Republicans support such violation of the First Amendment, they lack credibility as Free Speech Warriors. Whether you agree with BDS or not, you need to support its rights of speech & activism IF you are indeed a defender of Free Speech for all.

Instead of shouting ‘America First’, how about BDS BDS BDS for a change?

Okay, from years back, I knew it was coming. You also knew it was coming. Fifty years ago, Zbigniew Brzezinski told us it was coming. Anthony Sutton told us too. We watched it happen to Alex Jones, Andrew Anglin and Chateau Heartiste.

I understand that Admiral Rogers knew it was coming. General Flynn must have known it was coming. He lived some of it. 300 million privately owned guns knew it was coming.

For heaven's sake, Q specifically stated in 2018 that it was coming! (RED 1 & RED2).

So I have to assume that Trump - who is sworn to protect the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic - knew it was coming.

Again, this last week, Pompeo has been a tweet-machine on all kinds of very serious matters even though he is going to be powerless in just two weeks from now, such as laying out rules (e.g., re Taiwan) as if he is still going to be SoS for years to come and theBiden Admin won't just overturn

There's been talk of Trump crossing the Rubicon, but it seems like Enemy crossed their own rubicon, and it's great news. What a time to be alive!

When big tech banned figures like Alex Jones, it still held the mantle of mainstream America denying platform to 'extreme' voices. It was about the center, center-left and center-right, expelling the periphery.

But big-tech crossed the rubicon in banning Trump, effectively sending a shock wave to 75 million that voted for him. Big Tech is no longer the mainstream banning extremism but deep state oligarchy suppressing the voice of half the people. It can no longer pretend to be representative of the mainstream. Apparently, half the nation is now too 'extreme' to be part of the conversation.

They cannot cross back. Their rubicon drew the line in between the elites & their brainwashed minions and rest of America that dares to speak truth to power.

So, it's about time we stopped blaming 'communists' or 'socialists'. The whole notion of the Oligarchy as being part of the 'left' is only a boon to Jewish Supremacists and super-capitalists. Their modus operandi is tribal power and more money, but when conservatives and patriots call them 'leftists', it creates the impression that the oligarchs, deep state, and the elites are on side of the underdog and the less fortunate.

Indeed, it's better designate the Deep State and the Glob the Jewish as ULTRA-right because after all ADL and AIPAC are little more than ultra-tribalist Jewish Power organizations.

We need to combine the best of the sane right and sane left(as leftism has done its share of good for the West, esp in worker's rights and rule of law for every citizen). And our sane left-right fusion should wage war on the ultra-right Jewish Power and its fake 'left' nonsense that obsesses about homos and tranny 'women'. Populism is half-right, half-left. It's about nationalism and interests of the little guys.

As for the antifa being far-left, ROTFL. How come it never attacks Zionism or Wall Street? It is the goon squad of Jewish Wall Street and usually attacks white working class patriots. Its 'communist' conceit is all a sham. They are a Jewish-funded Janissary force of Wall Street and Zionism.
