Extremists want to demoralize and demonize all opposition. Don't let them!


The constant drumbeat of negativity, violence (implicit and actual), and barrage of "facts" that suggest the inevitable defeat of the orthodox, law-and-order, conservative position, are nothing more than a propaganda effort designed to demoralize us.  Those behind it are trying to make it appear that their victory - in November's elections, and in society overall - is inevitable;  that we can't stop their steamroller;  and that our only recourse is to shut up, roll over, and play dead.


THAT'S A LIE FROM START TO FINISH.


The progressive left, their lackeys in the mainstream media, and the rioters on our streets, are all part of a deliberate attempt to deceive us.  They're doing precisely what Hitler and the Nazi Party did in Germany in the early 1930's.  Don't forget, the Nazis never won a majority in the German Reichstag prior to taking power.  They postured and bullied and screamed until they drowned out the more moderate opposition, which meekly kowtowed to them and handed over the reins of government.  Once they had power, they never surrendered it, and made sure no rivals for it ever emerged again.

That's what the extreme Left would like to see happen in America, and they're exerting themselves to ensure that it does.  Tucker Carlson accurately describes what we're seeing.





This blatant power grab can only succeed if we allow it to do so.  Instead of being demoralized and beaten down by the drumbeat of leftist propaganda, we need to stand strong and firm on the reality of the situation.  Sundance views it from the perspective of someone in Fort McHenry during the bombardment of 1812.  (Bold, underlined text is my emphasis.)

There is a great deal of purposefully driven anxiety and fear amid our nation as this multi-faceted internal war takes place.  However, there is a primary element to this effort that each person can shield themselves from, and act to counter.  Do not let your sense of self succumb to this assault.  Do not let them win the battle for your peace of mind.

It might, heck, -check that- it does seem overwhelming at times.  But that is the nature of this collectivist strategy.  That is the purpose of this bombardment.  We must hold strong and push back against their lies and manipulations.  If you look closely at their attack, it is weak and much of it is psychological bait.  Do not fall into the trap of despair.

When I share the message “live your best life”, it is not without purpose.  Every moment that we allow the onslaught to deter us from living our dreams, is a moment those who oppose our nation view as us taking a knee.  Do not allow this effort to succeed.

You might ask yourself how can I, one person, a flea looking into a furnace, retain an optimistic disposition while all around me seems chaotic and mad.

That’s the point; it ‘seems’ chaotic and mad because it has been created to appear that way.  There are more of us than them; they just control the systems that allow us to connect, share messages and recognize the scale of our assembly.

Every second that you live your life with thankfulness for the abundance within it; every moment that we CHOOSE to engage with fellowship; every day that we accept guidance from God – however you define him to be; and every moment we cherish this time to be a beacon of optimism; is a moment that we withstand that barrage and hold the flag in place.   It is a genuinely patriotic position not to succumb to the attack.

If you allow yourself to be drawn into crisis and despair, you allow them to win.  If your center of normal is based around this overwhelming onslaught, you will eventually concede liberty in favor of peace.  Once we stop living in liberty, we no longer have peace.

. . .

We must shake this mindset.  We must withstand this onslaught and rally to the origin of our true national spirit.  We must rally to a standard of Americanism and accept this is not that. In essence, we must individually take a stand.  Purposefully, deliberately and with forethought, we must engage those around us to get rid of this sense of foreboding.

This approach is how we win the larger battle.

There's more at the link.

The enemy's victory is only inevitable if we don't fight back.  As Sundance points out, there are far more non-leftists than there are leftists in this country.  Sadly, that's not enough.  Non-leftists have to stand up and be counted, or risk losing it all.
  • In what became the Soviet Union, there were far more non-Bolsheviks than Bolsheviks.
  • In what became Nazi Germany, there were far more non-Nazis than Nazis.
In both those countries, the extremists took power because the majority allowed them to do so by not fighting back.  That's precisely what the extremists hope will happen in the USA this year.  If we do nothing, if we cower supinely in our homes and refuse to engage them, they'll take power here too - and just like the Bolsheviks and the Nazis, once they hold the reins, they'll make sure no-one ever takes them away by peaceful means.  The drumbeat of "political correctness" will become a roar, demonizing and drowning out all opposition.

If every member of the "silent majority" were to cast their votes this November in accordance with their conscience and their beliefs, the radical extremists would be driven into political oblivion.  Their every effort, right now, is bent upon persuading the "silent majority" that there's no point in voting;  that the "tide of history" is against them;  that no matter what they do, they can't win, so they might as well just stay at home and accept the inevitable.

That's a lie.  It's all lies.

Our job is to spread the word to our friends, family and associates that it's a lie.  Our job is to motivate those around us to get out and vote in November.  I don't care who you choose to vote for - that's your business - but I know, just as you do, who you need to vote against.  We have to take a stand against those seeking to radicalize America, to drown out democracy and constitutional government in a tide of extremist populism, to destroy the foundations of our society.  That means voting against the politicians who support them and publicly pander to them.

Our job is to stand firm against the propaganda onslaught currently being unleashed against us.  Don't be fooled, don't be intimidated, and don't be afraid.  Take a stand, and encourage those around you to do the same.  Take heart from the example of Virginia, where a left-wing victory has led to the uniting of the "silent majority" against its dominance, and a growing resolve to stop progressive extremism in that state.  The first signs of electoral backlash are already visible.

This war won't be won by one battle, or by one election.  We're in it for the rest of our lives - and we need to go on fighting it, for the sake of our children and our children's children.  Only if we give up, only if we surrender, will the progressive left triumph.  Let's not give them that satisfaction.

We need to get out enough of the vote of the "silent majority" to overcome the "margin of cheat" that the progressive left will employ in a desperate attempt to ensure that they gain control.  We can do that, if we put our shoulders to the wheel and work hard between now and November.  Ignore the fact that the extremists control the mainstream news media, which refuses to be even-handed.  Instead, spread the word one person to another, one day at a time.  If enough of us do that, every day between now and November, the extremists will fail.

As some dead white male (and probably a slave owner) once opined, "Eternal vigilance is the price of Liberty."

Voting is important, but it's not enough.
Stand up and let your voice be heard.
Take back the streets.
Take back the schools.
Take back our country.
This is war.

I live in northern, rural Maine. I have never seen so many Trump flags, signs, etc. These riots have just cemented the president's lead up here, and everyone will vote.
