Charlottesville is a Symptom of a Much Greater Problem in America Today

So I was walking around Maine today, without a phone, totally unplugged from the world. Since I'm a personable person, quite affable at times, I conversed with lots of strangers, many people who might disagree with my 'world view.' Although I have strong opinions, I'm mature enough to know my ideas are meaningless time fodder, the result of theories concocted through emotional and cognitive experiences. Too many Americans actually think their ideas matter. They're told this lie by the media and their politicians all the time, in an effort to trick people into thinking we live in a participatory democracy. Everyone is trying to ram their ideologies down the necks of others, which of course results in backlash.

The vast majority of people just want to larp around, drink something strong, and procreate. I can't think of the last time when I thought discussing politics was a good idea for casual conversation. I did it more when I was younger, filled with vigor -- stuck in the amber of idealism. I've always felt dreadful after engaging in political debate -- even with people who totally agreed with me. It's a time sink down the hole of extreme negativity and only serves to make people angry.

Why?

Because government can never please everyone, which is why I believe the less government, the better.

The connectivity of our phones and social media, amplified by the media, has turned total imbeciles into activists. These people are sick and have nothing better to do than foment strife. The 'white supremacists' who marched in Virginia yesterday were idiots. They weren't idiots because they had low IQs or because they wanted to express their opinions, but because they actually took the time out of their day to bring attention to themselves for a negative reason. What did they think was going to result from this?

A great man once told me, 'if it doesn't generate revenue, I'm not interested.' He'd actually say that to total strangers at a bar, ordinary men asking for the time or if he had watched some sports game on the tube, which caused him to get punched hard in the face more times than I can remember. But it's a good way to live, if you think about it.

I'd like to tie this up in a pretty bow and simply say 'we're all so different and America can never truly come together because of idealogical differences.' But that'd be false. The core issue here isn't politics, or racism, or identity politics, but the fact that ordinary citizens are getting wound up by social engineers, who are seeking to divide people, bringing out the ugliest in people. We're all ugly, in one way or another -- some uglier than others. When Americans work together and leave out politics, we produce beautiful, life changing, things. But it seems every god damned news report I read these days is talking about an angry white man, a violent black man, or an evil Russian. Naturally, if you keep fucking with people's emotions and pride, bad things will happen.

I won't say the news needs to accentuate the positive things in life -- because they have a business to run. What I am saying, however, is that the combination of having everyone with a phone and social media account wanting to be a celebrity, coupled with an atmosphere of purposeful divisiveness, is a toxic, if not deadly, combination. At some point, I hope all people will realize that it isn't Joe from down the block that is the problem -- but Jim in DC messing up America's legacy.

Trump should just adopt the Swastika as his party's new flag. Bring it out in the open. he is a Nazi and it is painful watching him try to hide it. Trump voters want a dictatorship. They want Trump to make all the decisions and anyone disagreeing to be fired or killed. Forget about majority rule. If your not Lilly white we have jail cells for you or get the fuck out.

The only difference between Trump and Clinton is Trump is right out in the open with his Fascism while Hillary hides behind PC language. It is time for Trump to fly that Swastika high for all to see. Cancel all future election and let the Terror of the Trump family rain down on the ignorant masses until they are the obedient mindless troglodytes they wish to be.

Benjamin Franklin said "We have given you a republic if you can keep it"  It is gone.

Removing a monument won't change history.  This is the latest provocation of the virtue signaler's.

When I was a kid I worked at the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial in Stone Mountain, Georgia. The monument to the Confederacy is carved into the side of a granite mountain. How do the libtards want to get rid of that?!

Social media has its role in fomenting divisiveness, but neither it  the news are the source of the divisiveness.  They are only vehicles for fomenting it.  Saul Alinsky wrote the book Rules for Radicals as a way to grow central authority through manipulation of the masses with false narratives designed to fracture the population and provide distractions.  George Soros and his confederates are now carrying on where he left off.

Blaming media for this problem is short-sighted.  Soros and his minions colluded with figureheads to encourage the protests on both sides--at least that is my theory.  Every rally that is based on some sort of identity pride is just another tool of division that focuses on small groups instead of national identity.  Soros and his ilk don't want us to focus on national identity based on individual liberty and responsibility because if we did, then we wouldn't be vulnerable to being set against each other.

So long as people prioritize their little groups over the country, the country will continue to circle the drain.

We are born with certain unalienable rights.  They aren't given to us by any paper, but whether we like it or not, a paper is the closest thing to a protection of those rights that humans can create.  Those rights must be codified in a constitution that serves as an iron-clad contract between government and the people.  But when the people don't care about their collective identity above small group identities, then they don't expect that contract to be enforced.  They forget that the main point is to ensure that a contract exists for all Americans and that government will consume them all separately if they don't stand together as one.

America is its citizens of all colors, races and religions--not its government.  And the citizens that are America must be of one mind on those key values and principles if America is to continue to exist.

Sick and depressing. An amazingly limited grasp of your life's potential.

read some Jung. Start with The Red Book. The Libre Novis.

You'll feel better. You'll be glad you did. Good luck.

"When Americans work together and leave out politics, we produce beautiful, life changing, things."

Yes, but they will not let that happen because they have been sucking the life blood from the people and are looking for a way to make this fact "Go Away" (war).

"But it seems every god damned news report I read these days is talking about an angry white man, a violent black man, or an evil Russian."

Who owns the media ? There you go, you have identified who "they" are.

"Naturally, if you keep fucking with people's emotions and pride, bad things will happen. "

Manipulation in other words. To do that you need organization and MONEY. Who can do that ? "THEY" can.

From a Greek blog I stumbled upon this video,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPKCdV6DCNQ

The news "reporter" (or should I say propagandist) states (1:40 min) that "the church is complicit in all of this" !!!!

What ???? Someone pasts a cross somewhere and the church is complicit ? Now that tells you that they are sending this message to the mentally asleep population which is huge in numbers to confuse the issues.

You can't blame whites that blacks are inferior.

Get every white supremacy group and antifa ahole to gather at the same place and time.

Immediately cut off access to and from large area.

Make certain they are all well armed.

No one comes out alive.

Burn the dead bodies and notify no one.

End of story.

Charlottsville is symptom of nothing but a george soros funded operation.

Has it been forgotten a less murderous similar event was staged in KY just a few weeks back? (if not actually a false flag operation with actors)

He is pointing out the symptoms of the "illness" but not the cause. To do that you need to go several levels higher in the hierarchy.

The plan has always been to divide america into as many segmented groups as possinle

to prevent people the people from uniting against the real enemy.

And the enemy wants to remove all christianty from socieety, Divide & Conquer.

Great Article!

Good Video!

Now shut your Maine trap. And join the dead crew behind me.

We are the final solution!

What the media refuses to cover is that today, many realize that the main divide is not between the right and the left, or even between blacks and whites, or Christians and Muslims, etc, but between those whose job it is to add value to the economy, and those who parasitize those who do, or even between debtors, and debt holders. Recently, the financial sector accounted for 40% of corporate profits, and they create nothing. There is something seriously wrong with this economy, and it gets worse with every trade deficit, and the media's job is to ensure you don't know that.

...'We're all ugly, in one way or another -- some uglier than others.....'

You have no idea the ugly I've been trying to hold back for the last 10 yrs or so.
Not anymore. It's well past time for everyone to let their ugly come out to play.

Let's see how it shakes down.

"Hope and Change" delivered. 

 

It's been wonderful hasn't it? Now that we know how bad the change has been now comes the price of changing it back to reasonable reality in America.

Cultural Marxism born 100 years ago in Europe. Started to reach its stride 50 yrs ago in America.....Notice that religion, morals, family, gone?  What remains?

The story is those people think they're special just because they're white when in actuality they were there to protest tearing down historical statues just because they're white.

You wanted Trump.

This is the result.

 

Insult, deflect, deny. Go!

Nope. Quite wrong.
Those that didn't want Trump have given us this.
Your paint brush is defective.

MrSteve's picture

I's refutin', -- not deflectin', 'sultin', or deee-nyin'! That's right, none of your's above. Thinking current social issues exist because Trump won and the public wants this unrest is just plain stupid beyond belief. It may be that what we have here is a failure to communicate, like the Warden thought. More likely is the case that the Obama-Soros axis is spoiling for a fight and when they get it, they wimp out with loser talk.

The killer with the hit and run car is the kind of inspiration the O-S axis brings out. Everyone has known since George Lincoln Rockwell marched in Skokie that it is better to let all extremists air their fetid, socialist views rather than drive them underground where they aren't visible to our youth and can be pointed out as bad examples.

And change your handle, it's so micro-aggressive and culturally appropriative!!

Trump is simply the antidote for 8 years of Obama bullshit.

And you think this upsets us? It's just the inevitable happening you dolt. Yes we wanted Trump and love the fact that he's ruining your fake utopia. Your kind was too stupid to see what was happening to cause Trump and you're too stupid to realize how this ends. I just wish I could be there when the oh shit moment hits you.

OCnStiggs's picture

I bet we find out thes idiots are on Soros' payroll.

Ajax-1's picture

The Soros paid rioting storm troopers getting off the busses came looking for a fight. Interstate transportation of individuals for the purpose of inciting a riot is a federal offense. Why isn't Attorney General Jeff Sessions directing his U.S. Attorney's to present this to a Federal Grand Jury.

Would it be correct to say that the "Soro's groups" are not ideologically parallel with say, the Bilderberg group ?

 

Are they within 90 degrees opposed/in-line ?

Are they 180 degree opposites ?

If yes, on question 2, why has Soros not been shot ?

GunnyG's picture

It has already been proven that Soreass funds many groups on both sides to cause chaos. The fucker needs to die along with his kids who are even worse than he is.

What? Trump wins so you rage, rape, burn, murder, loot, shoot more cops and then you point at Trump. What did Trump do to start this?  Is Trump so powerful he can make you do stupid and/or horrible things?  You have no control over yourselves, like some child going through the terrible two's who demands everyone respond to "NO"?  How sad.

HoyeruNew's picture

while the Trumptards run people over with cars. Oh yes it's the left thats at fault. And the Libtards are responsible for everything bad too, it's NOT the gov who together with the buig business has created Corporitism. Nice deflection, keep it up and you'll have a LOT more to suffer. .
