Sort of a paranoid liberty-lover’s “Red Dawn”
The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control.
Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance – these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.
This is the backdrop to an unfolding story of resistance. American militias prepare for guerrilla warfare. There are mass defections from the military as true Patriots attempt to rally around the Constitution and defend liberty, preparing a national insurgency against federal forces, knowing full well this will be the last time in history the oppressed will be capable of organized resistance.
It is a time of transition, of shifting alliance, of mass awakening and mass execution. It is an impending storm, an iron-gray morning that puts into effect decades of over-comfort and complacency, and Americans wake up to an occupied homeland. It is a time of lists – black list, white list, and those still caught in the middle, those who risk physical death for their free will and those who sell their souls to maintain their idle thoughts and easy comforts. It is in this Gray State that the perpetuation of human freedom will be contested, or crushed.
Is it the near future, or is it the present? The Gray State is coming – by consent or conquest. This is battlefield USA.
Dana Milibank calls out the absurdity of calling the Family Research Council a “hate group” which is good, but to balance things out, he makes a few fact-less assertions that the left all take as articles of faith such as the right being much more angry than the left and that leads to violence (he mentions Glenn Beck followers becoming violent — who?).
People talk about Mitt Romney’s faith being odd, but the religious belief of the left that the right are angry and violent has to be the weirdest religion of all.
So is MSNBC ever going to get called on for their blatant racism in hiring Touré? The guy is a pea-brain who’s only shtick is finding increasingly absurd things to accuse of racism (while, of course, doing it in a purely partisan manner such as leaving Biden off the hook because these sorts of people never care about racism beyond using accusations of it as a political cudgel), and MSNBC saw him and thought, “This is guy is pretty smart for a black man,” and put him on TV. I mean, really, you have to have as dim a view of black people as a KKK member to think Touré is someone exceptional and worth hearing.
So we need to tell MSNBC to stop the racism. Give Touré a more appropriate job for someone of his intellectual rigor. Like janitor.
Just a note to Nukers – you never need to leave a comment to ask me to release your comment from moderation. I get all the comments emailed to me, so I get notified immediately when one goes to moderation. As soon as I see something in moderation, I check it out.
The only thing delaying the release of real comments is the frequency with which I check my email.
If I could monitor it constantly, I would, but… only human.
I asked Frank to train a monkey to release comments from moderation, but his maimouphobia just keeps getting in the way.
Reacting to accusation from Romney that he has a “campaign of division and anger and hate”, Obama said, “I don’t think you or anybody who’s been watching the campaign would say, yes, that in any way we have tried to divide the country.” He then made a series of similar statements.
“No one would say I’ve raised the deficit.”
“No one would say I have a VP with the intellectual capacity of pumpkin.”
“No one would say I’ve played golf.”
“No one would say I’m a useless nitwit with no practical economic experience.”
“No one would ever say I use a teleprompter.”
“No one would say I’ve been more concerned about left-wing solutions to health care than jobs.”
“No one would say I’m named Obama.”
“No one would say I’m a horrible failure that makes us reexamine how harsh we were on Jimmy Carter.”
