The Leftists who control the federal and some state governments – with the help of a number of “Republicans,” as they style themselves – intend to govern by criminalizing. The whole point of this “January 6” business being the first overt step toward this new elaboration of “democracy” – the working definition of which is: Agree with the Left (or at least, do not question the Left) else be characterized – criminalized – as a “threat to our (meaning their) democracy.”
That is the message being conveyed – openly, now – by the Leftists (plus the abetting “Republicans”) who have already had people locked up and caged, some indefinitely, without formally charging them with any crime, much less convicting them. Previous Leftists such as Woodrow Wilson and Abraham Lincoln – interestingly, the founder of the “Republican” party – did the same, previously.
Thereby establishing the precedent.
More recently, The Chimp – another “Republican” – narrowed his beady eyes, pursed his thin lips and declaimed, “you’re either with us or against us.” By which the sociopathic simian meant, If you question us, you are a threat to our democracy. The Chimp openly asserted the right to criminalize questioning, the power to drag people out of bed at night (or in broad daylight) and imprison them without charge. Torture them (“advanced interrogation”) at his personal whim.
People forget, especially rank and file “Republicans,” who try not to remember because they are addled by a false distinction between Leftists and “Republicans.”
It is also worth a mention that it was The Chimp who set in place the architecture, ready to elaborate, for the enforcement measures of the “public health emergency” we’ve been living in for the past almost-three-years now, during which refusing to wear a “mask” or close the doors to one’s business became arrestable “crimes.”
The Chimp and his “Republicans” gave us “Homeland Security,” too.
Now the Left – with the aid and comfort of “Republicans” – is on the verge of criminalizing the retail sale, person-to-person transfer and inevitably, the possession of what they style “assault rifles.” By which they mean not the selectable/automatic-fire rifles carried by the enforcement class (i.e., the military and the quasi-military that styles itself “law enforcement”) but rather practically every semi-automatic rifle owned by millions of average people who’ve never committed any “gun crime.”
This “assault rifle” business is of a piece with the “climate change” business in that both terms are deliberately non-specific, in order to encompass everything and thereby justify anything. They are also both predicated on deliberate misrepresentation, hysteria and pre-guilting. If you question whether the “climate” is “changing” unnaturally and catastrophically – and insist on facts rather than assertions – you are a “denier” and (you can feel it) a de facto criminal, who will soon be locked up for “denying.” Just as the Leftist drug-pusher who runs the “vaccine” company, Pfizer, characterized anyone who questions being coerced or even compelled to take “vaccines” is . . . you guessed it, a “criminal.”
And yes, he actually said exactly that.
Just the same as the “criminalization” of people who did nothing more than travel to Washington on January 6 to peacefully express their questioning of the results of a very questionable election. One preceded by Election Months, leading up to an Election Night during which the counting of votes was suspended, then resumed, among other irregularities. These are reasonable questions that deserve answers. But the Left is now very open about its intent to criminalize any such questioning – and not just of that election.
Of every election, henceforth, if the questions annoy Leftists. Of everything the Left declares to be a closed question, the questioning of which is (here we go, again) a threat to our democracy that cannot be abided.
Now comes the threat of the Second Amendment to “our democracy.” If you question being characterized a “criminal” for possessing a semi-automatic rifle (soon – next – it will be any rifle, followed by any pistol) then you are also a “threat to our democracy” and a criminal, in actual (legal) fact since it will inevitably become illegal to own any type of firearm the Left decides to illegalize, aided and abetted by “Republicans” such as the Orange Man.
The one who thinks Klaus Schwab and the WEF are “doing a great job.”
Rank-and-file Republicans work hard to forget it was the Orange Man who criminalized the sale/possession/personal transfer of bump stocks, thereby implicitly affirming the criminalizing of the rest of the gun. Who also uttered words that are music to the ear of Leftists – about “Red Flag” laws that treat people who’ve violated no law as criminals, on account of someone in authority asserting their “concern” that they might violate a law.
Rank and file “Republicans” did not consider that a “threat to our democracy” – which is why they now face being legislated (by the Left, aided and abetted by Republicans) into “criminals” for owning an “assault rifle.”
Will they supinely accept it? If they do, they may come to regret it. Much as the rank-and-file Russian “burned,” as Solzhenitsyn later styled it, “in the camps.” By which time, of course, it was much too late to do anything about it.
We still have time to grasp the nature of the threat – to this republic. To ourselves.
To refuse to be supine.
If we don’t want to “burn” – as “criminals” in the camps that Leftists and “Republicans” have in store for us.
