Quote of the day—Max Morton

We are facing a new post-justice, post-truth society. We won’t be able to debate our way out of it, vote our way out of it, or tweet our way out of it. No one is coming to save us. If traditional America wants to be free, it will have to stop living in the past, get up off the couch, and take action.

  1. Yep, we now live in a world governed by Wokeism. As to getting up off the couch and taking action – I just don’t see it happening because we are too compliant and we live in a world where everything is recorded and monitored.

    “Wokeism is a Marxist-inspired movement that started off with well-intentioned people that wanted to stop racism and social injustice. It has now morphed into a violent cult that seeks to silence all of those that disagree.”

  2. Max’s assertions are correct. But it can’t happen. The organizational arms he talks about have already been hacked off. They ain’t growing back. There is no such place as traditional America anymore. Nor ever will be again.
    Nor should there be. Traditional Americans got treated like dirt at every turn.
    That can change now.
    I like being a racist, deplorable, bitter clinger. Consider the source, and watch for the overreach. They may have power. But what their trying to build won’t hold.
    Sun Tzu also said; To not stop your enemy, if he was destroying himself. Just get out of his way.
    Think there’s a good reason why Vox Day moved to Italy?

  3. Glad I’m not the only one who sees this. The problem is that we are too comfortable. We’ve grown unaccustomed to risk and danger (witness the Chinese virus panic) and we’ve got too much luxury and wealth to put it on the line.

    Most people will just keep their heads down and hope that the thought police comes for them last.

    By the time we are discomfited enough to take collective action…I mean meaningful action, not taking selfies in the capital rotunda…it will be too late and the jackboot will already be firmly planted on our necks.

    • Yep, selfies in the rotunda – real threatening.

      Some Jackboot periods: Germany 15 years, Soviet Union 70 years, and China* 70 and counting.

      * They have at least developed a capitalistic industrial powerhouse and become the world’s manufacturer even if they are communists.

      • China has never not had what could be called a ‘Jackboot period’. All they did in ’49 was trade one set of Warlords for another. This current set just seems to be more interested in advancing their version of the Communist International via economic means.

  4. “…..it will have to stop living in the past, get up off the couch, and take action.”

    As long as it can be accomplished during the commercial breaks during re-runs of MASH and The Andy Griffith Show, sure, I’m in.

  5. Precisely. TINVOWOOT. And protesting, suing or any other normal acceptable
    means of action are JUST AS POINTLESS.

    You only have the rights/freedoms you are willing to fight for, die for and
    most importantly KILL for.
