“…You been slipping into darkness, pretty soon you gonna pay.”
As much as I’m afraid-dubious, skeptical, worried, take your pick-of all that’s occurred so far in this short span of Trump’s administration, something went down that was even more troubling and systemic of where we could wind up eventually. It illustrated exactly how we shouldn’t be acting in protest or defiance of all that our newly-elected President has put forth. If you haven’t guessed, I’m talking about the recent demonstration on the campus of UC Berkeley.
Notice I said, newly-elected President. That’s for those who seem to be bent on revolution and anarchy, denying and decrying the process while at the same time espousing American values and the Constitution. Is it our job to revolt or protest simply because we’re so angry and discombobulated just to make a point? Or, should our job and our only job be to play the political game that ensures Donald Trump is only our president for four years? If you chose the latter then that’s where it gets difficult; but not impossible.
As protestors on the Berkeley campus celebrated the cancellation of Breitbart editor-in-chief, Milo Yiannoupolis, in the aftermath they should’ve recognized three things that could’ve gone better. First, they denied Milo his free speech rights and they/we don’t want to do that. Hell, I grew up having to stomach the Klan and others, traipsing across the nation, spreading their corrupt tentacles, all under the protection and gist of free speech. I’d like to think I didn’t do that for nothing; I’m just saying. Second, the protest turned violent; something that helps them and hurts us. And finally third, to avert the occurrence of violence, protest groups should start vetting their members; especially that first sucker who seems so keen on breaking something. Don’t put it past some powers to seek to infiltrate and corrupt our numbers as we embark on taking our country back. (Can’t believe I said that sh*t)
Who those powers are and their agenda is what many conservatives are in denial over. I think they foolishly reject what’s at the core of every executive order written these past few days; and that’s the creation of disorder, confusion and anger. They refuse to acknowledge that it’s what the leader of our country wants; and I’m not talking about Trump. The true leader of America today, the ringmaster, the puppeteer pulling all the strings is Steve Bannon and he seeks a new world order. Kind of gives you chills when you think about that phrase, “the most powerful man in the free world”, doesn’t it?
“I don’t know whether [Trump] really gets it or not”.
Steve Bannon in an interview to Vanity Fair, after Trump was elected, concerning who runs the country
Coined the “Leni Riefenstahl of the Tea Party movement” by the late Andrew Breitbart, Bannon refers to Trump as a “blunt instrument for us”; with “us” being not only a collective of billionaires but also the ‘alt-right’ which includes an assortment of haters; white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, Anti-Semitics, misogynists, Islamophobes and your garden-variety, run-of-the-mill racists. It’s said his world view is anti-establishment, despite the number of billionaires chosen for his, I mean Trump’s cabinet. It’s easy then to understand what’s going on with America’s foreign policy. With Bannon taking his seat at the table of the National Security Council, all the while penning Executive Orders the public thinks come from the commander-in-chief, what we wind up with is global chaos, out of which will rise the United States, Russia and like-mined nations like a phoenix, leading this new global initiative that will roll back the freedoms earned in the past half century.
This takes dystopian to a realistically, new level; especially for us, don’t you think?
