They say kneel. They scream it. They demand it. They threaten our lives and livelihoods if we do not comply.
And do you know how we reply?
I’m shocked the Captain Americas came out of leftist Hollywood like they did. With a hero who stands for patriotism, truth, justice, good, the American way, freedom, individualism, and fighting until your last breath for those ideals.
One of the points of fiction is to get you to think through a story. The Captain Americas tell stories of ideals the left can not allow to flourish. And yet, they’re out there. Look at The Winter Soldier. The whole speech computer Dr. Zola makes is exactly what the left is pulling now, and Zola was the bad guy.
“HYDRA was founded on the belief that humanity could not be trusted with its own freedom. What we did not realize was that if you tried to take that freedom, they resist.
The war taught us much. Humanity needed to surrender its freedom willingly. After the war, S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded, and I was recruited. The new HYDRA grew, a beautiful parasite inside S.H.I.E.L.D.
For 70 years, HYDRA has been secretly feeding crises, reaping war. And when history did not cooperate, history was changed… HYDRA created a world so chaotic that humanity is finally ready to sacrifice its freedom to gain its security.
Once the purification process is complete, HYDRA’s New World Order will arise. We won, Captain. Your death amounts to the same as your life, a zero sum!”
A lot of us are feeling that last line. Everything we’ve done to push back leftist policies, every fight from the local level to the federal added up to nothing. A zero sum. We’ve lost. The socialists won. They rigged an election, took over two branches, and the Supreme Court can be threatened to let through socialist programs against the Constitution with a court packing plan, a la FDR.
So how did they do this?
They sowed fear and chaos through our cities on and off for years. Then 2020 hit, and they grabbed onto a molehill and turned it into a mountain to scare the shit out of all of us.
Some disease that’s basically a bad cold came out of China, contributing to the deaths of many of the elderly in countries with bad, socialist healthcare systems, and the political class in America picked up the ball and fucking ran with it.
Yeah, I’m saying it. Covid is nothing worse than the Swine Flu, actually, it’s probably less bad because it hasn’t taken out very many young people, which a nasty flu does. We as a country could have told people about the disease, the risks to the elderly, what could happen to younger people, like with the flu, told people they should wash their hands well, wear a mask, gloves, stay away from others, etc., and went about our lives. Just like we did in 2009 with the Swine Flu.
How many people did the Swine Flu kill? Oh, you don’t know off the top of your head? THAT’S BECAUSE THE MEDIA WASN’T FUCKING BLOWING IT UP FOR A YEAR!
Yes, people died, we do that. It’s kinda part of that whole being human thing. Especially when we get old. Hey, I hate it too. I’d love to be a vampire. To stay young and healthy forever, or until somebody staked me because they thought vampires were evil. (I’d be a good one, like still me, not one like a Buffy vampire where the souls are gone and there’s a demon in its place.) I sure as shit don’t want to get old and die.
But they blew it up over media. Every single death that was due to respiratory issues, or where the person had the covid when they died, even if they died from injuries in a car crash, even some people officials just reported as having covid because the person died and was old, all were counted and spat out. Every single day. On every news site. Everything on social media was around it.
So the public was afraid enough for the governments to step in to “help.”
(What are the scariest words in the English language? Anyone? Buelur?)
First it was 2 weeks to flatten the curve (Gee, it’s been a long 2 weeks.)
Then came the mask mandates.
