One of the struggles for those on this side of the great divide is maintaining a proper perspective with regards to dissident thought versus conventional thought. Most people are not on this side of the great divide. None of the people in politics or the media know that there is a great divide. For them, the two sides are the extreme far Left and the so-called conservatives struggling to keep pace with them. Reading the mass media from our perspective can cause you to question your sanity.
There is a site called Memeorandum, which used to be popular with bloggers back when copy and paste blogging was a thing. It is an aggregator of mainstream sites that tries to set the tone of daily conversation. The cable talkers rely on it to set their agenda for the day. It is why our media feels like an echo chamber. The site is a useful reminder that our mass media is highly coordinated. These people have daily scrums to decide what to make up and they direct the rest to follow their lead.
Anyway, when you look at this site, it often seems like the bulletin board in a dayroom of a mental hospital. Yesterday, this post was featured on the site along with some others on the same topic. This one was the most amusing. There is nothing about that story based in fact. It is pure fantasy, but a fantasy being played out in real time in front of people supposedly in charge of the country. The loons running the government really think there are insurrectionists plotting a coup.
As I pointed out in the podcast extra, the January 6th protest has become the centerpiece of a weird form of security theater. When they said it was their 9/11, most people rolled their eyes at the absurdity of the claim. The people inside the wire, on the other hand, they believe it and they are acting on it. They have convinced themselves there is an invisible army of Trump supporters plotting a coup. Even the running dog lackeys on the Left are getting into it.
It is a good reminder to our side that the security theater of the Bush and Obama years was also entirely fake. Al-Qaeda and ISIS were real things in the world, but the people the FBI arrested in the US were probably just dumb guys they could frame. The police state the neocons erected was just part of the theater. This is probably a useful tool in helping people adjust to this side of the great divide. Our rulers have been corrupt and degenerate for a long time. It’s just more obvious now.
Still, the FBI rounding up a few swarthy guys once in a while and framing them for imaginary crimes was small potatoes compared to what we see now. This is the sort of thing the Soviets would have thought was too much. The government is now officially at war with half the country. It is such an insane turn of events that a normal person can be forgiven for wondering if he is really seeing what he is seeing. No one reading this imagined anything like this happening in America.
This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. I am now on Deezer, for our European haters and Stitcher for the weirdos. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.
