The Warning Signs Are Clear: 2024 Is Going To Be Ugly

This is a real cover of a real, sort of news, magazine:

If you missed the memo, the United States Federal government and all of the associated agencies including and especially groups like the FBI and ATF, have declared the American people to be the enemy of the American state.

Never has it been more clear that there is no more virulent anti-American group in America than the American Federal government.

The language They use to talk about regular White Americans sounds an awful lot like how we spoke about al-Qaeda after 9/11 or the Japanese after Pearl Harbor. It is intended to dehumanize us and make it easier down the road to eradicate us. Make no mistake, it doesn’t matter if you own a dorky Make America Great Again Hat or if you ever voted for Trump. If you are White and not with the program, you are MAGA and therefore an extremist and thus viewed as a potential enemy combatant in your own country.

From the article we see rhetoric like this (emphasis mine):

“The FBI is in an almost impossible position,” says a current FBI official, who requested anonymity to discuss highly sensitive internal matters. The official said that the FBI is intent on stopping domestic terrorism and any repeat of the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. But the Bureau must also preserve the Constitutional right of all Americans to campaign, speak freely and protest the government. By focusing on former president Trump and his MAGA (Make America Great Again) supporters, the official said, the Bureau runs the risk of provoking the very anti-government activists that the terrorism agencies hope to counter….

….Newsweek has also reviewed secret FBI and Department of Homeland Security data that track incidents, threats, investigations and cases to try to build a better picture. While experts agree that the current partisan environment is charged and uniquely dangerous (with the threat not only of violence but, in the most extreme scenarios, possibly civil war), many also question whether “terrorism” is the most effective way to describe the problem, or that the methods of counterterrorism developed over the past decade in response to Al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups constitute the most fruitful way to craft domestic solutions.

Newsweek is a propaganda organ of the Deep State. Notice how they draw the connections between Al-Qaeda and rank and file Republicans. Do you think lefties on Twitter/X claiming that January 6th was not just bad, but in fact worse than 9/11 or Pearl Harbor really believe that? Of course not, some might because they are that stupid, but most are saying it because that is what They are telling them to say.

It is mildly clever. The article is supposed to be this balanced report about the FBI but the framing is very carefully crafted to portray “MAGA” followers of Trump as potentially dangerous extremists but maybe not quite as bad as Al-Qaeda. They keep offering opinions that “MAGA” might not rise to the level of domestic terrorism while at the same time repeating over and over that MAGA, code for White men, is a far-right extremist political movement. Sure it is the movement that won one Presidential election just a a few years ago and received nearly 75 million votes but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a fringe extremist movement! We aren’t talking the New Black Panther Party or the John Birch Society, we are speaking of one of the two political parties in America. The only “Republicans” that aren’t included in MAGA are Beltway types like Bill Kristol and other Never Trumpers who have no real constituency among actual GOP voters.

This gets back to what I and many others have been saying for years: They don’t really hate Donald Trump, They hate you and Trump is merely a totem that represents all that They hate about you. More from Newsweek:

Trump and his army of supporters were acknowledged as a distinct category of domestic violent extremists, even as the FBI was saying publicly that political views were never part of its criteria to investigate or prevent domestic terrorism. Where the FBI sees threats is also plain from the way it categorizes them—a system which on the surface is designed to appear nonpartisan. This shifted subtly days after the events of January 6 when it comes to what the Bureau calls AGAAVE.

“We cannot and do not investigate ideology,” a senior FBI official reassured the press after January 6. “We focus on individuals who commit or intend to commit violence or criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security.”

But the FBI went further in October 2022 when it created a new subcategory—“AGAAVE-Other”—of those who were a threat but do not fit into its anarchist, militia or Sovereign Citizen groups. Introduced without any announcement, and reported here for the first time, the new classification is officially defined as “domestic violent extremists who cite anti-government or anti-authority motivations for violence or criminal activity not otherwise defined, such as individuals motivated by a desire to commit violence against those with a real or perceived association with a specific political party or faction of a specific political party.

A new acronym to describe me! AGAAVE-Other: “anti-government, anti-authority violent extremism”. Also notice that Trump supporters, the rank-and-file White voters who make up the Republican voting base, are described as an “army”. That martial designation of American voters as an “army” is intended to ramp up the threat perception, as we will see in a moment. Let’s continue….

Though Trump and MAGA are never mentioned in the official description of AGAAVE-Other, government insiders acknowledge that it applies to political violence ascribed to the former president’s supporters.

“What other name could we use?” asks one FBI officer who spoke with Newsweek, and who defends what he says is merely a record-keeping change in response to Congressional pressure to track things better. “Obviously if Democratic Party supporters resort to violence, it [AGAAVE-Other] would apply to them as well. It doesn’t matter that there is a low likelihood of that. So yes, in practical terms, it refers to MAGA, though the carefully constructed language is wholly nonpartisan.”

There is a low likelihood of Democratic Party supporters resorting to violence? GTFOH. No one seems to remember the black-bloc types assaulting Trump supporters trying to attend rallies or the violence that accompanied Trump’s inauguration or the President being hustled into the White House bunker because of violent demonstrations or an entire year of leftists burning down American cities in 2020. A low likelihood of political violence? Everything that happened in 2020 is being retconned right before our eyes. We are now being told that there were in fact no vaccine mandates in 2020:

Alas, here we are, entering the final quarter of 2023, and we have the United States government, and many state governments (including New York’s former Governor Andrew Cuomo, current left-wing Governor Kathy Hochul, and the super-majority Dem legislature) proclaiming for all to hear that they did not force anyone to do anything detrimental these past 3.5 years. UNBELIEVABLE! Did you hear this? They are actually saying with straight faces that they didn’t force you to wear a mask, or lock down and shutter your businesses, or choose between taking an experimental drug or losing your job… Nope! They did none of that. And you – well, you are flat out crazy if you think they did. You are lying. You are exaggerating and totally overreacting. ….

…..Biden is not alone. No, no. His entire administration is right there with him. His head of OSHA, Douglas Parker, is also now lying through his teeth about the OSHA mandate that REQUIRED (not suggested) that all employers in the entire nation with 100 or more employees force their employees to get the C19 shot, otherwise they had to wear a mask and test constantly for C19. (That OSHA mandate was struck down by SCOTUS last year because it was unconstitutional, by the way). Then there’s the head of HHS, Xavier Becerra, saying there was never a mask mandate. What?! Another blatant lie.

The same thing is happening with the collective amnesia regarding 2020, as if the entire year just didn’t happen. No riots, no looting, no mostly peaceful anything. No one remembers far left loons taking over part of Seattle to establish the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) or the record breaking murders in American cities, a rampage that continues today. Now all of the political violence in America comes from MAGA. History is being erased and rewritten right before our eyes. Someone should write a book….


Another senior intelligence official who requested anonymity told Newsweek, “We’ve crossed the Rubicon.” In emailed responses to questions, he said, “Trump’s army constitutes the greatest threat of violence domestically…politically...that’s the reality and the problem set. That’s what the FBI, as a law enforcement agency, has to deal with. But whether Trump and his supporters are a threat to national security, to the country, whether they represent a threat of civil war? That’s a trickier question. And that’s for the country to deal with, not the FBI.”

There is “Trump’s army” again.

Notice all of the anonymous law enforcement and intelligence officials. This whole thing sounds like it was written by some FBI apparatchik at the direction of some higher placed figure in the Biden regime. No one is named so no one can be called before Congress to answer questions about why American citizens are being targeted for being part of one half of the American electorate. As Han Solo might say, that is pretty convenient. What is also convenient for Them is that the media plays along and never asks any real questions, repeating stuff like this:

The FBI and the other intelligence agencies responsible for domestic matters track the number of terrorist-related disruptions, arrests and investigations, based on its caseloads and its various characterizations. According to the FBI, the number of domestic terrorism-related open cases grew by 357 percent from 1,981 in fiscal year 2013 to 9,049 in fiscal year 2021, a number that has been widely quoted in the media as evidence of a widespread domestic terror threat. The FBI also says the number of FBI domestic violent extremism and domestic terrorism investigations has more than doubled since the spring of 2020—to approximately 2,700 investigations at the end of fiscal year 2022, another marker that’s been widely quoted.

Those are numbers intended to be read and spread. OMG there are domestic terrorists everywhere, why else would the FBI be investigating them! No one will read what comes next….

Classified numbers seen by Newsweek substantiate the FBI public claims while also showing that a significant part of the increases in 2020 and 2021 were related to protests after the murder of George Floyd and during COVID as well the elections and January 6. That said, the data show clearly that the main targets of the investigations and cases open were of Trump supporters. While the number of investigations in 2021 almost doubled from 2020 to around 9,000, the number of “full investigations” that led to arrests was only 1,446, not much more than the number of 1,146 January 6 protesters who have been charged with a crime, according to the Justice Department.

No one is getting arrested and prosecuted for burning down cities after Saint Floyd breathed his last but those numbers get lumped in as “investigations” and everything in the article is pointing the reader toward the pre-ordained conclusion: there are thousands of violent extremist Trump supporters planning violence in 2024. More….

Virtually all of the 2021 increases are specifically related to these events, including the enormous growth in what the FBI calls “assessments,” which more than doubled from 2019 to 2021 and are revealed here for the first time.

Assessments are the most speculative of any FBI investigation, where a special agent or intelligence analyst only suspects wrongdoing because of association or encounter and further looks into someone’s background. Assessments are the closest thing to domestic spying that exists in America and generally not talked about by the Bureau.

I would be deeply disappointed if I were not the subject of an “assessment”. Some FBI flunky reads something I wrote, decided he doesn’t care for the cut of my job and creates an assessment. Boom, I am a statistic supporting the idea of a wave of “extremism” in America. Near the close we read this:

Experts agree that as the 2024 election approaches, there will be greater pressure to prevent law-breaking, one that necessitates infiltration of political circles and other controversial government activity.

Almost a throwaway line deep in an article most people won’t read to the end but in it we see the seed of political repression in 2024, in direct contravention of all of the talk about not investigating people because of ideology. The justification is there in one paragraph for more Feds infiltrating right-leaning political groups and we know that those infiltrators have at least some intent of inciting and then entrapping people as in the Gretchen Whitmer “kidnapping” plot and most other “plots” that the Feds have “foiled”, made all the easier because the Feds were the ones who were planning it all along.

This article is getting a lot of play on conservative social media but as usual most are missing the bigger picture.

Of all the things about this article that are bullshit, nothing is more bullshittier than the idea that MAGA is an extremist political movement. The precise opposite is true.

No significant political movement in America is less extremist that MAGA.

Think about the people that are Trump voters. By and large they are middle aged or older, working or middle class, suburban and rural. They are business owners and gainfully employed people, most with families and mortgages and minivans. Their radicalism is pretty much asking to be left alone and suggesting that the pace of White replacement be slowed down a bit. That is what passes for political radicalism. But you read this article and what you come away with is the belief that anyone supporting Trump is a ticking timebomb, a violent extremist in waiting.

That brings me to the larger point. What about those to the right of MAGA, actual political dissident like yours truly and most of my readers. If Jim the small business owner with a house in a cul-de-sac who owns an unfired handgun for protection is an “extremist”, what does that make us? If overweight Boomers with red hats are “anti-government, anti-authority violent extremists”, how about people who are actively training with their firearms, lifting weights, speaking out on forbidden topics and sharing naughty memes? You have to assume we are considered several steps beyond AGAAVE-Other and that if the Feds are infiltrating generic Republican groups, they are even more concerned with us.

The Newsweek article is intended to shift the Overton window even further, making things like “build the wall” into violence-inciting hate speech and making actual political dissidents outlaws without ever committing an actual crime.

It also reinforces what I already knew. The Powers-That-Be typically warn about something before They go ahead and do it Themselves. I won’t even speculate on what that might although I have plenty of suspicions because I don’t want to give them even a hint of being complicit when one of the Fed’s wind-up toys goes off next year. We all have to watch our steps closely while not letting them silence us.

The end-game of all of Their planning is upon us, likely in the next five years and probably much sooner. Propaganda pieces like what we see in Newsweek are simply an announcement of Their intent to ratchet things up and start hostilities soon. They can’t help but telegraph what They are doing, it is up to you and I to see it coming and prepare for what comes next.

2024 promises to be like nothing we have seen in this country for 150 years.


  1. Don W Curton

    The race is on – the only question is which war will go “hot” first. Nuclear war with the Russians, or Civil War at home? And of course the current powers that be simply can’t understand a basic concept, like don’t start a war with two fronts! Napolean and Hitler both lost big on that, but of course this time it’ll be different, right?

    • Doc

      Have you considered both happening at the same time? Now add on China invading Taiwan. Let’s call it what it looks like – WORLD War III.

  2. Ohio Copperhead

    Man that is some extreme Orwellian rewriting! I’ve always thought that They inflicted 1984 on Russia and let us get the Brave New World treatment instead, but we’re beginning to catch up with the Party and Pravda. And it looks like before long we’re going to have a lot less Soma and a lot more boot-on-human-face stamping!

    • Fido

      Yeah, I thought that too, decades ago. When I learned of bot 1984 and BNW, I just assumed that BNW, being more nuanced and sophisticated… drugs and propaganda rather than brute force and torture… was written later…. but BNW was written *first*! Those drugs and propagand only work on a select few (the present mask wearing jabbed), the rest of us, have to be controlled by force… force they don’t have, so they must convince us we are a fringe minority, and convince us we have a “hope” of prevailing through “traditional means”. I don’t think it’s working. Once the “switch” flips, there’s no way back ’til it plays out.

  3. Tetonman

    Also, lest we forget, Hochul has appealed the court case that was struck down in a lower court here in NY. The case in question would allow the Health Dept. to involuntarily quarantine anyone they think is a health threat. All at their “discretion”. Local news outlets haven’t reported on it at all. Now the case is at the Fourth Dept. Appellate Division.
    Maybe another way to target those pesky MAGA types.

  4. Jeffrey Zoar

    Although they can target any one of us, for any reason or no reason, with impunity, at any time and place and in any way they choose, they need a LOT more manpower to do this on any kind of scale. Manpower they don’t have and aren’t going to get.

    Similar for debanking: they will do that here and there, make sure it’s publicized (especially on dissident media), to scare everybody else, but they won’t debank tens of millions of people.

    I guess their AI or their volunteer baizuo internet trolls can flag us for banning from social media sites I don’t use anyway. But again, banning tens of millions of people is not something they really want to do.

    What they really want to do is scare you into submission

    • Edmond Dantes

      You could not be more wrong.

      The borders are open precisely to import the enforcers, whose task will be to disarm the population. You are exactly right that no gov’t at any level has ever had the manpower to do that, but the necessary manpower is being imported right now, including thousands of Chi-Com army regulars.

      As for scaring people into submission, they can easily do that as they have already demonstrated via the COVID hysteria. Nobody is any the wiser now than they were several years ago. TV mediates reality for almost the entire population. So if their TV sets tell them to do this or that, they will do it without hesitation or questioning.

      As for your comment about unbanking, this short book has just been published to explain how the Great Reset will be effected:

      This is not a game. You are deceiving yourself.

      • JerseyJeffersonian

        That was an excellent read from a man who knows whereof he speaks. It is long, but that is because it is both thorough, and historically contextualized.

    • Gryphon

      “What they really want to do is scare you into submission” –
      That’s all they really have, JZ, the Hope that Arresting and Persecuting a small number of Prominent Individuals (like J6 participants) will intimidate the Millions of more Angry Citizens, that they KNOW they have No Chance of suppressing if they go Too Far.

      I’m expecting to start seeing prominent ‘anti-government’ bloggers begin to be Arrested, and charged with DOMESTIC TERRRISM!!! rather than just being “Shadow Banned” or “Cancelled”. This development, of the feral ‘government’ Declaring that supporters of a particular Politician are “Enemies of the State” is so far into neo-bolshevik, banana-republic territory that it’s hard to Imagine that even the Fools, Bunglers, and Idiots are that Stupid.

      This has all the indications of a ‘government’ that is hanging on by their fingernails to the appearance of “Legitimacy” and “Control”, and the ‘Smoke-Filled Room’ that makes the Decisions knows this.

  5. Tom762

    Read it last night, could not RTWT. Came to the same conclusion tho. Leave it to fedgov to telegraph the plan, I will give them that. Basically, they say the quiet part out loud. They want us dead.

    Haha! As if we did not already know that.


  6. Dirk Williams

    Don’t be fooled, YOUR Govt is scared shitless of you. Bring your F15s, your rockets your snitch army. Your Govt knows that when America the sleeping giant awakes gonna be a lot of blood. “THEY” will be killed at their homes on the streets, on their way to work, and in their offices.

    AS I do disagree with your notion that All federal employees are our enemy,,,,,if one were smart in fact friendships with those running stuff, those people know where tools of the trade are actually stashed.

    Many many in attendance have seen the writing on the wall for many years, took the time to prep, find isolated spots, identified logical regional sources for their crews to law low at, move to and from to engage.

    But then I digress. I did it again I assumed WE would engage the left at some level, any level other than to pen mean tough talking nonsense.

    While there is logic in us over sixty groups, doing clerical duties, logistics duties, Intel related duties,,, war and street fighting is a young man’s game.

    I have a very clear real pic of myself kicking doors after climbing a dozen flights of stairs. Kinda looks like a sack of shit curled up on the floor trying to catch its breath. The thing that will get you DRT the fastest is not recognizing your limitations.

    Climbing a mountain I can do, climbing that mountain with battle kit at say 40/60 poumds, na, I’ll catch the truck to the top.

    But then I honestly don’t see many mountain tops fights here. I see a lot of fast viscous engagements then melting quickly into the duff anything but a road or goat trail.

    Decent article I know I pulled a sentence out of the body of your work to challenge. AS,,we are all gonna do it different. The fight here will be vastly different than your fight in your state.

    Lastly there can be no rules in this coming battle. Trying to fight an ethical war with an unethical govt, simply doesn’t compute. Has to be what the Chinese call Total War.

    I watch Ukraine with much interest. The lessons one can learn from what we are seeing are amazingly educational for a civilian population with every house being a potential bomb factory.

        Al, how are you Brother? Missed our trip to your town this summer, busy busy busy. Are you still traveling to Modoc county for work?

        Anyway you know where we are, you’re welcome at our place anytime, you and the family. We’ve been doing a lot of riding, and exploring in the Polaris side by sides, mostly way south OREGON and northern Nv.

        A group could literally get lost hide forever and live like kings, fishing, hunting, clean water, right out of the desert floor! The few ranch’s in the area have thousand of head of cattle. We go work with those ranch’s, my SIL is somehow relate to these guys

        out there one can drive the main roads and maybe see another vehicle every few hours. I’m finally starting to catch on to Buckaroo humor, after meeting then in ranch line shacks we’ve been given permission to use.

        A different breed of cat, those men are.

          Doing good Brother and not to much anymore…Glad you are getting to see some country and still going to take you up on that crabbing trip someday…

    • Original Grandpa

      Dirt you ol’ sumbitch, glad to see you’re still kicking. Exactly correct that the cork soakers are afraid of us, the nightmare scenario is folks like us ever really getting our shit in one sock. It may only happen prayerfully, but once it cooks off, here we go. You and yours be safe and blessed on your mountain, brother; see you on the other side.

    • Linda S Fox

      What we CAN do is provide support:
      – Provisions
      – Shelter – many people have boats, sheds, garages and other places to stash people for short times
      – Communications – that’s where the ham radio operators come in. Many are used to operating remotely/QRP (minimal power)/and mobile.
      – Drone operation – get good with them NOW. Buy a few, if you can, and – most importantly – TRAIN
      – Local/neighborhood information – names of those committing abuses of citizens, videos, reports
      None of the above require extraordinary fitness or youth.
      And, yes, GYAIT – Get Your Ass Into Training. Any improvement in fitness is a plus! I’ll be heading into the gym today, when I can pry my husband away from the ‘news’.

  7. Don't mind me.

    What’s wrong with the John Birch Society? I don’t remember them being violent. Is speaking out now considered violence?
    I had a good geeky friend buy and install an off-site based camera system here and suggest everyone does the same.

  8. 3g4me

    The classic “They hate you and they want you dead and your kids raped and they think it’s funny” isn’t merely an internet meme made up from someone’s over-active imagination. As you (and I and others have) said, the feds and leftists generally tell you what they have planned in advance, and then mock anyone who notices as a ‘conspiracy theorist.” Not to worry, ‘Arthur,’ I can guarantee you have a file, as do I and others here and at Zman. Anyone who notices and actually says anything about it online has a file. I’m not so stupid as to have any social media accounts or subscribe/sign in to Youtube accounts, but I like most people, I have some online presence. They know who we are, and will move against whomever they can pin something on pour encourager les autres.

  11. Matt Bracken

    Outstanding take.
    I’d post it on TwitterX if I wasn’t re-banned by Linda Yaccarino after a 3 month fake Elon Musk reprieve.
    (I nuked my Facebook after I was given more 30-day bans than not.)

    So I’ll just post the link on Gab and Gettr, so at least the FedStasi goons assigned to our case will know that I did what I could, with what I had, while I was still breathing air outside one of their emerging American Gulags.

    The irony will go totally over their head that Stewart Rhodes, the originator of the Oath Keepers, is in a Gulag punishment cell for the rest of his natural, while these Fed Gestapo agents are working hard to get in their years for a federal pension by licking the bottoms of blood- and-shit-stained Gestapo jackboots. All after swearing an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. How these FedStasi goons can look at themselves in a mirror while holding a razor and not think about ending their personal shame is totally beyond my comprehension. These FedStasis would throw their own mothers into a furnace to up their pensions by 5%.

    IMHO. While I am still allowed to post these words.

    • Berglander

      You openly admit that they‘re communists; yet you insist on calling them the Gestapo.
      The Cheka, the NKVD, the KGB would all be more appropriate…

        • Berglander

          The German term “Sozialismus” has an entirely different meaning than the Marxist term “Socialist.”
          Would you be interested in reading Oswald Spengler’s 1919 essay “Prussianism and Socialism,” to better understand what it means in that context? It really got me to understand how and why the National “Socialists” were so opposed to collectivism and Bolshevism.

          • Matt Bracken

            Yeah, “socialist” doesn’t mean “socialist.”
            Go lick another national SOCIALIST jackboot.
            I said FedStasi first. But you just LOVE the Gestapo agents who, among other deeds, tortured Americans TO DEATH in very sick and evil medieval sadism torture dungeons. All the way to hanging by wire and on meat hooks.

            • Berglander

              Why the vitriol? I wasn’t rude to you.
              “Sozialismus” is a German term that is NOT the same as the English/Marxist term “Socialism.”
              It’s not an attack on you, Matt. They’ve willfully misled everyone about it for the last 80+ years.
              Given your penchant for research I thought you’d be interested in looking into it further, but apparently I was wrong.

    • JerseyJeffersonian

      First, thank you for your comment here, and those elsewhere.

      As to those Pension Whores who have no higher priorities than their promised hire, who are forsworn men, having ignored the import of their oaths to defend the Constitution and the Republic, I share with all of you these words of Samuel Adams, the fire eater of his family,

      “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

    • saoirse

      Another glory boy asshole virtue signaling by juxtaposing his target group with the Gestapo. Anyone whining Natzee Natzee is a limited hangout whose intention is to steer you into a faux resistance. Bracken and his Argentine boyfriend Ferfal always bleat about the evil Natzees. Nobody cares how many times you’ve been booted off of social media or where you’re at now. You never name the jew. That’s all we need to know.

    • RegT

      If that is actually you, Matt, thanks for all you have written. I’m back on the land after having hit some of the same ports as you, and wouldn’t mind a Viking funeral, with the remains of a few of my/our enemies on board to stoke the fire – after I’ve had a chance to do just a bit more.

        Arthur – I think – at least here in our new rural environment – it’s a combination of lack of exposure, general courtesy, and suggestion/permission to notice. Quite a surprising number of people have admitted they’re fairly sheltered here – including the pastor of the church we’ve begun attending. Without using inflammatory language, I’ve found that simply recounting the everyday realities of our life in heavily diverse suburban DFW has made an impact. The concept of being a visual minority everywhere and not finding a native English speaker in the bank, grocery store, or post office has definitely shocked people. And using the example of saving drowning children (i.e. your own first, then the best friend, then the neighbor, then the stranger) has also proven effective. They can accept it when I say that so-and-so were/are good/decent people, but they still did not belong here because, etc.


    I much appreciate Arthur’s use of the word flunky. Having grown up in NW Ohio myself, I know full well the pejorative leanings of the word.

    My mother used it to describe worthless peepo she had no useful purpose for. We really didn’t use the inward that much because the county we grew up in was about 98% white and there wasn’t any inward threat.

    I had to spend 3+ decades in Dixie to appreciate and understand the inwards. Not too many southerners use the word flunky, but I pledge that I will start using the it more to describe dot gov duds. Especially the miserable flunkies in the Dee Oh Jay.

    There won’t be a sudden switch to totalitarianism. It will be gradual, and people on the Internet will continually say “it’s getting worse” and talk about the fight that will happen when the time comes. But that time will pass, and nobody will notice it, because it is gradual. There won’t be a moment when everyone says enough is enough. The bystander effect is part of human psychology, and even if we say it doesn’t affect us, it does. If a war does start, we can’t forget that there are countries like China would love to see Americans kill each other. China. Our greatest outside enemy, could become the most powerful country in the world while we’re preoccupied. At the very least, they will be supporting the other side. We can win a bloody civil war, but we would have another bloody war with China afterwards. Waiting for a civil war and doing nothing to stop it is a stupid plan. Being prepared isn’t, but we can’t let it get to that point. I only see one option to save the America we love. We have to start now by getting involved in local and federal government. All that needs to happen is for the silent majority to stop being silent. We can still fix our country without war if we all do something now. It seems like we have forgotten that WE the government. I’m getting involved, and I urge you to do the same.

    There’s my rant

    I read the article slightly different. They are attempting to justify what the plan on doing by de-humanizing the right.

    They are rushing towards genocide.

    AS, please do not underestimate the far reach of the FBl, the other agency’s all have the resources the manpower and the courts to hunt one down and fuck em for life. Not saying you’re wrong, it’s never a good thing to ever underestimate one’s enemy’s.

    Cackles (HRC) interviewed on CNN calls for systemic reprogramming of MAGA folks. What awaits the rest of us?

      Garry… what awaits all of “us” – at some time, some place… is a gun fight. Eventually, as many have seen for decades; this will be what “they” and (((they))) have secretly wished for in their fevered dreams of dominance, and it will be reduced to all of us – or all of “them” and (((them))).
      There’s going to be a fight. Let’s win.

        O.G. – Remember, one of (((their))) principles when facing Stronger Enemies has always been “Let’s You and Him Fight” while the (((cowards))) stand aside. Just like in the Ukraine now (and the previous two Wars in Europe (((they))) fomented) the moneychangers have set White Men to Fighting against each other.

    The United States of America either ran away from home, or it no longer exists. What occupies the land mass where the USA once sat is both uglier and nastier than Stalin’s USSR and a bigger shit hole than India ever hoped to be. Best of both worlds! Now what?
