Greetings, Patriots, bikers and friends. Welcome to a new week. I do not know about you, but I have to wonder what the hell we can expect this week to bring? I hope to hell it is nothing as dramatic as we witnessed last week. But waking up this morning, I realized that the efforts to censor what we can read is only getting more flagrant. Honestly, I was so glad to kick 2020 to the curb,11 days ago, but it appears things are spinning more out of control in 2021 than in 2020.

Last Wednesday, we witnessed total #Anarchy at our nation’s capitol complex. While I am not going to dive into the specifics of what happened there, in this post, if you would like to read more about last Wednesday’s events, check out my previous article: Have We Lost Our Republic? Today, I am going to talk about our ever more rapid slide towards a true #Communist state.

A Modern Day Book Burning?

During the early 1930s, Nazism was a relatively new ideology. In an effort to indoctrinate the people of Germany, and Austria, efforts were made to remove from sight anything which could provide the people opposing views. One component of this effort was burning books. The featured image of this post is of the Deutsche Studentenschaft (DSt) – known in English as the German Student Union – ceremoniously burning books.

Fast forward to 2021 and I believe we are witnessing a similar event in the growth of #CancelCulture. The #Leftists want nothing more than to cancel all conservative thought and remove it from sight. At the start of last week, I would have never expected the unfolding events to lead to where we are at the start of this week. Last Wednesday morning, before the joint session of congress met to certify the Electoral College vote, President Trump spoke to his supporters at the Stop The Steal Rally:

I have watched unedited video of Trump’s comments to his supporters many times, and for the life of me, I cannot pick out any call for violence at our capitol complex. But the Left has seized on his comments to demand the president’s cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment. And if that doesn’t take place today, they are also threatening a second impeachment. Seriously, don’t those fucking deadbeats in the House of Representatives have better things to do – like get a stimulus bill passed to provide Americans some much needed cash? But don’t be fooled! The reason they are threatening impeachment is to prevent Trump from ever holding public office again!

But all of the posturing on the Left, to remove Trump from office, is just the same old, same old. After nearly four years of investigations, we are used to this behavior from our elected officials. What I find most disturbing is what took place over the past weekend.

First, on Friday evening, Trump’s personal Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, was suspended permanently by Twitter. This was preceded by Facebook, YouTube and Instagram putting a two week lock on his official accounts on those platforms. But Twitter did not stop there. Twitter also locked the official government account, @POTUS, which is owned by the U.S. Government. They removed all of Trump’s posts there since his Christmas greeting.

But the hits kept coming over the weekend as Apple and Google removed the popular free speech platform, Parler, from their respective app stores. And not to be out done, Amazon Web Services, a wholly owned company of Amazon, canceled their contract with Parler, whose platform they hosted. This has effectively closed Parler down – removing one of the few social media platforms, with the exceptions being MeWe and Gab, from sight. Heaven only knows how long these two remaining free speech social media sites will stay up. Both are already experiencing unprecedented growth, their servers barely keeping up with the heavy traffic – if at all. Can you say “Modern Day Book Burning?”

Conclusion

I am a YUGE fan of reading. I love real books. The older the better. But books are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Yes, there are still a few books stores – and of course there is Kindle and Apple E-books. But the majority of what people read today is what they find on social media. So with the expungement of Donald Trump from every platform he used to communicate with the country, we are experiencing the modern day equivalent to book burning.

What say you? Drop me a comment.

It’s happening right before our very eyes. America is in a state of decay. What happened to our great country? Our Founding Fathers, nearly 2 1/2 centuries ago, took 13 small British colonies and declared them independent of the British throne. They knew that the throne would consider them traitors and that they may all swing from the nearest tree. But these brave men created the greatest country on the face of the earth. Since then, we cleansed ourself from the shackles of slavery – with a loss of nearly 10% of our men – in the Civil War, fought fascism and Nazism in Europe and became the world’s greatest superpower. The Patriots who founded our country, and those who paid the supreme sacrifice to promote freedom, must be ashamed of what we have become.

Main Stream Media

One need look no further than the current Main Stream Media (MSM) to see the decay. While they claim to be presenting the news, nearly everything they report as “real” news is shrouded in a blanket of ideology. Their ratings have continued to decline over the past decade, but their followers believe what they spew because it validates their own beliefs. This is not journalism – this is the promotion of one political viewpoint over another – which is not American. 

Leftist Politicians

This same MSM provides a platform for politicians they agree with: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, Ilhan Omar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders and all the other leftist politicians. Some of those they are providing a microphone to preach anti-American garbage, anti-Semitic trash and socialist doctrine. These politicians do not hold the same views as the average American and are chipping away at what has made America great for over 200 years.

Their policies promote open borders, expansion of the welfare state, Medicare for All, free secondary education and the slow erosion of our Second Amendment. They cannot win on the battlefield of ideas. Their platform is hollow and revolves around class warfare, racism and redistribution of wealth. Simply put, they have to give things away to receive votes. Unfortunately, the entitlements they promote will come at a punitive cost to the American taxpayer.

Antifa

Antifa is a stain on the great fabric of our country. While peaceful protests and civil disobedience have been key to the advancement of our great nation, Antifa represents neither. Antifa is an acronym for Anti-Fascist and represents a broad militant group. Fascism, according to Merriam-Webster, is defined as:

“A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

Nazism during Adolph Hitler’s formation of the Third Reich has many of the same traits as fascism: nation above its people, centralized autocratic government, a dictatorial leader and suppression of opposition.

Antifa claims to be anti-fascist, often trying to suggest President Donald J. Trump is a fascist, but this is simply not true. Trump is not a fascist. He does not forcibly suppress those who disagree with him. Rather, he calls out his opposition to ensure the people understand what he is dealing with. He is not in charge of an autocratic government. He is the chief executive of a government which still has three distinct branches. Lastly, Trump does not promote the government over the people. He understands that the government is the subject of the people and not the other way around. 

Antifa, on the other hand, is fascist in nearly every way. While their chosen name may lead one to believe they are truly anti-fascist, their actions do not support that position. They are protesting a government in which the people vote their legislators and president into office – far from an autocratic form of government. Unlike in a fascist government, the President of the United States can only serve two terms. Antifa members have become violent against many of those they protest, recently beating up a gay reporter, confronting Pro-Life marchers, attacking Trump supporters and blocking traffic. This is nothing like the civil disobedience Henry David Thoreau promoted from Walden Pond. Lastly, they claim to be against white supremacy but come to their protests behind masks – much like the Ku-Klux-Klan did during the 19th and early 20th centuries. This is unacceptable in a country which was built upon providing its citizens the freedoms enumerated in our Bill of Rights.

Indoctrination of the People

The Democrats having been losing in the arena of ideas since the Ronald Reagan years. Since the election of William Jefferson Clinton as president, this country has been moving more towards a far-left ideology – one drip at a time. Both Hillary Clinton and Barack H. Obama are disciples of the teachings of Saul Alinksky. Alinsky was the first “community organizer” and wrote the book, “Rules for Radicals” – which provides the modern Democrat Party many of the tactics they use today. The current hatchling of Democrat 2020 hopefuls, and their minions in congress, have not mastered all of Alinsky’s Rules, but some of them they have. Grey Beard has graded their mastery of each one:

  1. Power is not what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have: B- (they attempt to show their power, but the majority of Americans still recognize them as weak – especially on the laws of the land)
  2. Never go outside the experience of your people: D– (they are constantly failing here – with the same tired old faces spewing the same old hatred)
  3. Whenever possible, go outside the experience of your enemy: C- (Trump usually has them tongue tied and resorting to the same old talking points)
  4. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon: B+ (Ridicule and class warfare is literally the only thing many of them are accomplished at)
  5. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy: A- (Their people love to see them attack Trump, capitalism and religion)
  6. A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag: F (Their call for impeachment and continued investigations of Russian Collusion is way beyond its expiration date – move on already)
  7. Keep the pressure on: B (One must give them credit – they are trying)
  8. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself: C (most of their plans are still quite terrifying to Patriots)
  9. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition: B (They have been building their organization through societal indoctrination for many years)
  10. If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive: B (Medicare for all is a good example of their success – the more moderate Democrats have been slowly coming around to this)
  11. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative: C- (This may be the least understood of Alinsky’s Rules – the newest socialist members are trying to do this by throwing out something really unacceptable – like the Green New Deal – with the more moderate Dems offering a compromise which a short time ago no one would have ever seriously considered – this is perhaps the most dangerous of the Rules)
  12. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it: A+ (Credit where credit is due – the Left has built an entire political agenda around attacking Trump and impeaching him)

Grey Beard Biker’s Summary

Do not underestimate the power these far-left ideologues have to fundamentally change our country. For years they have been formulating their tactics and have quietly worked to take over our education system, starting with the most malleable in society: our children. The leftists knew this was a long-term play – sowing the minds of these children would take a great deal of time before bearing fruit. Today’s Millennials represent a bumper crop for the Left. They have been patient, and unfortunately, they have succeeded in brainwashing an entire generation. All of us Patriots need to start taking these young people back. The risk of not doing so is beyond grave.
