Not With A Bang

Or even a whimper, really. Our world is ending with enthusiastic cheering on the part of our elite and their acolytes, and indifference and shrugs on the part of most of the rest of us.  There are lots of reasons for this — pure human weakness and mental laziness have a lot to do with it, and have assisted in bringing down civilizations for millennia. But that's not sufficient, I think, and we have to lay the blame at the feet of the MAG (Media, Academia,  Government). That's our three-legged stool of tyranny. With the Soviet Union, as Tom Clancy taught us, it was the Party, the Red Army, and the KGB. Our tripartite tyranny actually seems to be more efficient. It works better, anyway. We don't have anything anywhere near a Boris Yeltsin waiting to climb on top of a tank.

Gavin McInnes makes us a list of manifestations of this tyranny that hardly any of us seem to have noticed, much less cared about.  This is from TakiMag.

Apathy Toward Tyranny

Conspiracy theories used to involve a handful of loonies obsessing over isolated alleged events. Today, what used to be seen as freak occurrences are now an endless barrage of really serious events that only a handful of people are sane enough to recognize. Big Brother is no longer a myth, and the truly scary part is that nobody seems to care. If a tyrant is cool and he plays basketball with Jay-Z, well, then, tyranny is cool. In Barack’s America, the Gadsden Flag says, “Tread on Me.”

On Hannity last week we discussed Dinesh D’Souza’s curious indictment on charges of campaign fraud. The allegations are that he paid other people to make contributions to a political candidate he was endorsing as a way of getting around his own donation limit, and he’s facing up to two years in prison for it. Dinesh is the man behind 2016: Obama’s America, which not only criticizes Obama’s presidency, it gets deep into the president’s psyche and says Obama’s entire philosophy is flawed. On the show D’Souza explained he cannot comment on the case but admitted, “2016 was a film that does seem to have gotten under President Obama’s skin…whether this is a kind of payback remains to be seen.”

I understand liberals not caring what happens to this thorn in Obama’s side, but where’s the Republican outrage? Someone made Obama look bad and is now facing jail time. I’m not willing to call that a coincidence.
“Big Brother is no longer a myth, and the truly scary part is that nobody seems to care.”

We know this administration targets conservatives. They admitted as much. When everyone else learned the IRS was targeting groups with the words “Tea Party,” “Patriot,” or “Pro-Life” in their names, Obama insisted it was a coincidence and said there is “not even a smidgen of corruption” in his administration. Eventually, the evidence became impossible to ignore and he was forced to admit they “improperly targeted conservative groups.” Then we moved on and forgot about it.

Eric Holder said the government and its propagandists need to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.” When he became Attorney General, he allegedly gave guns to Mexican gangsters to prove to the world that guns can do evil things. What a coincidence. At least two incredible best sellers have been written about Fast and Furious, but the media has always seen it as old news. The death toll from this corrupt policy is in the hundreds. It makes Obama look bad so his PR team (virtually everyone outside of Fox and talk radio) chooses to ignore it.

Benghazi is another story that died on the vine. There is plenty of evidence suggesting the president knew in advance that our embassy was going to be the victim of a terrorist attack. (Keep reading HERE.)
