Tyrants Need an Enemy to Demonize and to Justify Their Anti-Freedom Crackdowns
Even people on the Left know this January 6th hearing is a farce. However, the Ruling Class needs political cover to continue a crackdown on civil liberties against whoever disagrees with them or fails to obey & conform. And they know the level of anger in America is probably greater than any time in its history. I would argue that it exceeds that which existed during the Civil War. The big difference is divisions aren’t so easily divided geographically, on top of the fact the American people know it won’t be corrupt politicians & tech billionaires fighting off a rebellion. It will be the innocent police and military, made up mostly of good people simply doing their jobs.
Have you ever asked yourself, “Am I crazy?” If you have ever asked yourself that, you’re not crazy. You’re most likely being gaslighted. Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse aimed at controlling a person by altering reality to the point where the person will doubt their own sanity. The term “gaslighting” comes from a 1930’s play called Gas Light. The main character in the play literally tries to drive his wife crazy by gradually dimming the gas-powered lights in their home. When she notices the lights dimming, her husband not only denies that the lights are dimming, he convinces her that she is imagining it to the point where she questions her own sanity.
We’ve seen many examples of gaslighting over the past year, mostly related to the Covid plandemic. The most obvious example I’ve seen in years is the latest craze that Trump is “inciting violence.” No sane person, other than Deep State politicians and media manipulators, can read recent messages from Trump and interpret them as some call to violence, especially when they say word-for-word, “Peaceful protests only” and “no violence or breaking the law.” Most people have to question their own sanity when they read the statements and hear they’re used as justification for mass censorship and impeachment. In other words–gaslighting. Words and phrases somehow don’t have the same meaning as we’ve learned our whole lives. If they were so-called “incitement of violence,” they weren’t very effective. Almost 75 million people voted for Trump, yet only a few hundred broke any laws protesting recently.
We see more gaslighting when we consider the media and Democrats blatant double-standards in regards to protests and disputed elections. Your sanity is tested as you hear the media and Big Tech assure us of election integrity after four years of whining about the 2016 election. You question your sanity when a year filled with BLM, Antifa, and anti-Trump violence, protests, and riots involving 1000 times the number of people as the Capitol protests is treated as if they never even happened, with one small protest now deemed “insurrection.”
You question your own sanity when a year of lockdowns & mask mandates has only produced misery and economic destruction without any noticeable reduction of Covid rates. You see New York and California held as the models for fighting Covid as they far exceed the rates of cases & deaths. Then, you’re called anti-science and censored if you even question the effectiveness of the measures. Gaslighting.
You question your sanity when you hear Big Tech, the media, and liberals complain that Trump is an anti-science fascist, as they push for mass banning of social media accounts, removal of any alternative-thought posts, and the punishing & demonizing of any entire class of people — Trump supporters.
It seems every day the past year has been a new case study in gaslighting. It’s not an accident. It’s become one of the most effective tools of manipulation, supplemented with brainwashing techniques carried out by all major institutions of influence in the country–the media, Big Tech, entertainment, and public education.
Returning to the latest gaslighting incident–Trump’s “incitement” of violence–which do you think is going to cause more anger and potential violence?
1. Trumps’s relatively benign recent statements
2. The massive Big Tech purge of accounts, posts, and platforms. The media double-standards on protests & elections. Joe Biden & Nancy Pelosi calling 75 million Trump voters racists and domestic terrorists. Covid lockdowns, mandates, and other steamrolling of Constitutional rights. Another impeachment process that accomplishes absolutely nothing other than giving another slap in the face to 75 million Americans. Coordinated Deep State efforts to ensure election results are never questioned or audited. And on and on.
Perhaps the biggest test to my own sanity is wondering if some of these people really are stupid enough and living in such an impenetrable bubble that they truly believe Trump words are the cause of the anger? Or is this all 100% part of a plan by the puppetmasters, and I’m just being gaslighted?
In the past I’ve often rolled my eyes when people compared the American Ruling Class to Nazis, Stalinists, or other totalitarian governments. I’ve always felt it was a gross exaggeration that diminished the citizens who really did suffer under these regimes. No more. Short of extermination camps, we have become the modern day equivalent of everything represented by these terrible societies. All of our free speech and other civil liberties are systematically being stripped away. All of the institutions of influence–mainstream media, Hollywood, Big Tech, education, TV, social media, etc.–have been taken over by Deep State socialists. Our only remaining outlet for correcting wrongs–elections–have become ridiculously corrupted, and simply discussing election irregularities is now deemed “inciting violence,” leading to complete bans from social media. And to complete the totalitarian repertoire, the Ruling Class is demonizing and attacking an entire class of people–Trump supporters & American patriots. Is it any wonder anger has boiled to a level not seen since 1861?!
You would think in a sane world, if there’s any group of people in the country who sought to protect free speech, it would be journalists. But other than a few diminishing voices on Fox News, good luck finding a single person in the mainstream media who is NOT now forcefully behind the extinguishment of all conservative and libertarian voices. And it is more evidence they’re part of the same behind-the-scenes Deep State Ruling Class machinery trying to subjugate Americans to a 1984-like totalitarian society.
The recent protests at the U.S. Capitol have been used as a justification for the latest purge of voices on the Right. You’re seeing the perfect example of how any kind of censorship is dangerous. Banning “hate speech,” removing “misinformation,” stopping “violence-inciting” speech, or whatever your justification, they all suffer from one fatal flaw–who decides what qualifies! You’re never going to remove the flaws and biases of the people in charge of the censorship. In the case of Big Tech, you’re usually talking about young programmers from ultra-liberal California who don’t have the life experience or balanced education to be good arbiters of speech. So now, because of the Capitol protest storming, just discussing election irregularities is being used as justification for complete bans, even when people like Trump come out and forcefully say, “NO VIOLENCE.” In the case of Parler’s ban, Big Tech cites lack of “content moderation.” In other words, everyone must toe the censorship line and stick to the same Deep State scripts, or you’re gone! Even if you try to moderate content, you’re talking about millions of posts and comments every day! It’s simply not possible to find every phrase that may or may not incite violence. All these Big Tech fascists need to do is scan comments until they come across a few posts within the millions, then use them as the reason to take out any voices with which they disagree.
Another commonality about totalitarian regimes of the past is to engineer protests, rebellions, or other “emergencies” and “threats to public safety” so the public tolerates a crack down on civil liberties. Has anyone seen any of this in America? Maybe Covid-19, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, U.S. Capitol protests,…?
Two years ago I wrote a novel called The Vigilante Terrorists. It was a dramatization of the type of civil war that could happen in this country, as well as how behind-the-scenes Deep State power could be used to manipulate the public and destroy the lives of political enemies. Like the book 1984, I fear my book is becoming far more true to life than I ever imagined. I absolutely do NOT advocate violence or destruction of property because it’s always innocents who bear the brunt of the suffering, and it only invites more crackdown by the Ruling Class. Short of that though, it’s time for all-out war against these despicable people!
