Make no mistake, the United States of America is being ruled, not governed, ruled by organized hatred. Just as Adolph Hitler employed his Sturmabteilung (Brownshirts) to intimidate and frighten the citizens of Germany into giving him the dictatorship the current governing bodies in America are using similar means to increase and solidify their power over this country. Hatred is the most powerful weapon in their arsenal.
The three most prevalent factors in human interaction are love, hate and indifference. Of these the easiest to control is hate. Hatred requires no maintenance whereas love needs to be nurtured through understanding, empathy and compassion. In other words, love requires that you actually put some effort into sustaining it. Love is not something you say, it’s something you do on a continuing basis.
The forces now controlling America have successfully weaponized hatred and have used it to instill fear and intimidation in order to divide the people, and to subvert law, reason and due process. When people have to arm themselves, board up their businesses and cower behind locked doors in anticipation of an election result, a jury verdict or a court ruling, can we not agree that something has gone awry?
When even our Supreme Court can be cowed by the mob, can be intimidated to shirk its sworn duty to the Constitution out of fear of retribution by uncontrolled rioters how can we say that we are very far removed from Hitler’s Germany of 1925?
When duly elected members of our legislatures, federal and state, can take to the streets to egg on the mobs and incite riots in order to advance their political ideologies, where are the checks and balances?
And those of us who care, what can we do beyond wringing our hands in despair as we futilely blow against the whirlwind? In a few short months we have seen our great nation dive into the abyss, a headlong leap toward destruction fueled by a purposely engendered divisive hatred that has been financed by forces that for various reasons want to see the America we have all cherished cease to be. And those forces are winning.
There is no end to the list of laws violated by the people who are behind the destruction of the country. Where are the prosecutions for abetting illegal border crossings? That is still a crime, is it not? What of inciting riots and looting? Giving comfort to enemies, foreign and domestic? Still illegal? The money trails are obvious and could be followed but are not being acted on.
For a period of time we had so-called good guys in power. Where were their actions against what was taking place to subvert the rule of law? Not only were they silent then but now seem to be interested only in multi-million dollar book deal advances, a classic way to pay off corrupt officials for services rendered. Those that we looked to for positive leadership were not haters, nor were they governed by a love for country. They were driven by shameless greed, indifferent to the result their inaction would have on all of us who depended on them to honor their oaths and to defend the country and its laws.
Personally, I feel betrayed. Not by the haters in the streets, they are at best useful idiots duped into following false prophets or at worst criminals using the cover of a political debacle to profit from looting. Nor do I feel betrayed by the billionaire radical leftists or the Media or the Big Tech oligarchs, they cannot be expected to have any desire to seek a just, well governed society blinded as they all are by their quest for wealth and power.
I feel betrayed by the good guys, that whole sanctimonious lot of pretenders, acting and talking as though we the people, the rule of law, the American ideal and the Constitution were the driving forces in their lives when all along they were just in it for the glory and the gold. How some of them can stand to live in a world that has mirrors is beyond me.
Okay, the rant is over and the search begins. A search for that person, that font of wisdom, that potential shining knight, who can pick up the tattered pieces of our nation and provide the leadership that will unite those who truly want this country to survive as a republic and begin a cause worthy of being rallied around. Hate can be defeated.
