15 June 20 “I respectfully decline the invitation to join your hallucination.” Scott Adams
In the wake of current events, several long-professed pretenses are finally falling away. In this country we have at least made of pretense of justice and protection for all, with individual rights and unlimited opportunity extended to everyone, special privileges extended to no one. It’s been far from perfect, of course, but we’ve at least honestly strived as a united civilization to live-up to principles of our Founders, a nation “conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” For the first time in my lifetime, these principles are now being openly, contemptuously thrown aside, by elected leftist politicians, who call our blessed country a “failed state” and demand that we all now accept a suffocating Marxist take-over, without question! 1. They stand-by and do nothing as our historic monuments are carelessly defaced, vandalized, and demolished. Our national history is being destroyed! Yet, no one dares object, and politicians don’t lift a finger to stop it. Book-burnings are next! 2. Our “Freedom of Speech” is gone! You dare not speak-out against groups of criminals who enjoy favor among leftist politicians, lest you be physically harmed, all with the blessing of those same politicians.  Frank discussions are now confined to whispers! 3. Neither you, nor your property, enjoy any species of protection from rioters, looters and anarchists, so long as these criminals are members of favored groups. Does anyone care about you when you’re not a member of a “favored group?” Dream on! 4. During criminal proceedings, facts have become irrelevant! Only emotion and voguish political trends (invariably leftist) get the ear of prosecutors, judges, mayors, governors. 5. Freedom of religion is gone! When they try to quietly assemble for isolated worship services, Christians are arrested and thrown in jail. Simultaneously, BLM rioters squeeze themselves together on public streets, and nothing is done. Leftist politicians, while praising the latter, denigrate the former.  When leftists are looking for votes, the law doesn’t matter! 6. The media no longer protects us from lies. They propagate them instead! Our “news media” is mostly made-up of shallow Marxist propagandists who endlessly mouth leftist dogma, never allowing discussion to the contrary. Examples: George Floyd was a repetitive, violent, career felon. Has the media reported that important truth? BLM rioters have systematically destroyed millions of dollars of private property and commerce, much of it never to be rebuilt. Anyone talking about that, much less condemning it? ANTIFA goons in Seattle, after running police out of town, have also destroyed property, threatened people at gunpoint, and extorted money from trapped residents. The media reports it as just a giant “love-fest!” Residents can’t call police, because they aren’t coming, and the Democrat mayor does nothing, and the media says it’s all wonderful! 7. Leftist politicians demand locally-controlled uniformed police officers be replaced with “social workers.” That, when implemented to any degree, won’t work, and they know it. They don’t want it to work! They want it to fail, so they can then substitute their new Federal Police Force, a national gestapo they will use to silence all opposition, just as gestaphos have always been used! This is a Communist take-over, and it is happening right in front of us! Democrats are promoting it, and Republicans are cowering like rodents! We’re on our own! “Leftists in the United States, all those professors… are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see Marxist/Leninists come to power, become offended. They think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will all be lined up against a wall and shot.” Yuri Bezmenov /John
