The Revolution that isn’t coming
Free Kentucky ^ | 27 August 2002 | Barry Bright

Posted on 08/28/2002 10:45:39 AM PDT by 45Auto

At one time it would have wounded me greatly to write this column. Then I wouldn’t have understood myself if I had read these words as written by someone else. At that time I had some feelings left for the "American people."

Then I read this by John Loeffler, radio host and columnist: "Witness the worldview changes that have occurred since the radical left flower child revolution of 1960s. Americans have experienced such historical revisionism in schools that few can tell you what the Bill of Rights contains and why those rights are so important. America has been in a constant state of self-demonization to the extent that Constitutional rights are viewed as the obsolete product of dead white slave owners."

The sixties were not the beginning, that decade was the apex. That’s when the American Communist Insurgency consolidated their control of the mainstream news media, the socialist-created government schools, and the universities.

If my grandparents, who graduated the sixth and eighth grades back when "the schools really taught children" or whatever, had any knowledge of the Bill of Rights they would not have spent their lives mindlessly going along with this socialist evil. If their parents had taught them about Liberty that means that generation would have understood it. They didn’t, or they would have been in the march on Washington D.C. in 1933 and helped sling the rope over the tree branch that FDR swung from. They weren't and he didn’t. So here we are now.

Americans have become a bunch of mindless cowardly whores who think that if they "vote" and fly a flag in their yard they’re patriotic. They’re not. They’re whores who care only for their next paycheck and their next house or SUV payment.

As I write this another mindless country song chants "USA, USA, USA" on my radio. My country, right or wrong. That concept was taught to me by the most "Liberal" professor I had in college. He was right, if in a "Liberal"(communist) twisted sort of way. For the benefit of the mindless, that concept has to do with people who always do just what they’re told by their "superiors" because they believe the comforting propaganda they’ve been taught all their lives.

Someone on my email list responded to another organization’s request for financial assistance by telling me he would save his money and buy more ammo. Well good for you idiot. I hope you also have the army it will take to carry all your ammo, or the fuel it will take to run the vehicles you probably don’t have to fight your war with.

I say this to all the couch potato soldiers: "the revolution isn’t coming." Not anymore. It probably never was. We’re a nation of summer soldiers now. And we're producing a nation of video game soldiers who will zap whoever they're told the "bad" guys are for a paycheck and a retirement plan.

The American pigs will do the same thing the pigs in the Ukraine did and the same thing the pigs in Germany did and the same thing the pigs in countless other societies over time have done. They will wait until they are ordered to go dig the ditch, then they will dig the ditch, put their shovels down, turn around to the sound of the machine gun bolts slamming home, wet their pants and die like happy little morons.

It’s funny how in all the countless documentaries and movies that show the stupidity of the Nazis’ victims, I saw one on Kentucky Educational Television two days ago, they point out how those people were warned in countless ways about what was coming. They thought the same thing the American pigs think now: "It’ll never happen to me."

The main thing that those programs never recount, because they’re produced, directed, funded and shown by American Marxists, is that Josef Stalin, the communist dictator, murdered tens of millions in the "Soviet Republic" before the Nazis even got warmed up. The German people knew this was going on, that’s why they sided with what they saw as the lesser of two evils, just as American voters do today. I keep harping on this because it's probably the most important contemporary historical point one can make.

Buying more ammo isn’t going to solve this problem. Getting off your "patriotic" ass and doing your part politically, and to educate enough people as to why you’re doing what you’re doing so that if you have to dig up your ammo then a tiny percentage of your idiot neighbors might at least pass you a bowl of beans out the back door and not call the modern black-suited Nazis.

With 40% of the American presidential vote going to creatures like Clinton -- TWICE -- this writer isn't just blowing steam.

Someone please have the beans ready to hand me and mine out the back door. If I'm ever required to march to a remote location with a shovel, you can believe a few of the guards are going to have dented, shovel-printed foreheads. I don't intend on going down without a fight. That's for the mindless sheeple.

I think that goes without saying, Skeeter. ...We should all be so angry. Maybe we would finally be heard.

While I cannot agree with the defeatist attitude; it is very hard to pick out anything that the writer has said, with which one can find much fault.

Posting this may draw some angry comments from some. But the bleak picture needs to be faced, or the almost inevitable defeat that the writer foresees, will be our present reality.

He is right. There is no revolution coming. The idea that there will be an armed revolution to overthrow the creeping socialism evident in the world is naive, and impractical. The socialists are not wearing uniforms. They don't have armbands. They are the person shopping next to you in the Kroger. They are the guy that delivers your mail. They are the people walking and driving on the streets all over America. They are the reparations crowd and the Jackson/Sharpton followers. They are the Union members. They are the democrat voters. They are neo-cons. They are federal employees. They are teachers and students and doctors and ditch diggers.

In other words, 'they' are the vast majority of the population. Whether they are being 'cowed' into this sleepy socialism or not does not matter. They are there, and they are not backing away from it. The path to socialism is the path of least resistance, the path toward the lowest common denominator. History has shown that the vast majority of humans do not seek true liberty, but wish only for a just master.

The idea of an entire nation of self-responsible people interested in true liberty is nothing more than an idea. It has never been fully realized, and never will until humans evolve out of the infantile suckling stage. So instead we have bureaucrats, armies of trial lawyers, teachers that teach 'esteem', and a values-neutral politically correct non-judgmental psychological dynamic in every aspect of our society.

Besides, an armed revolution would impact television viewing habits.

Seriesly angry.

Stylistic question: isn't it considered good etiquette to end a screed with a complete sentence?

excellent post. For all the reasons you stated and more, there's no real reason to expect anything will be changed for the better (more liberty). The gnashing on FR is great for blowing off steam, crystallizing one's beliefs on this and that. But's it's little more than impassioned impotence. Do you ever wish you could just go back to sleep, he asked rhetorically.
