Mike Krieger On Charlottesville: "Don't Play Into The Divide & Conquer Game"

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

I’m going to keep this relatively short. I’ve written thousands of articles over the years, and anyone who’s read me for any period of time knows where I stand when it comes to hatred, bigotry and violence. I find all these things repulsive, and think people who gravitate to such behavior to be operating on such a low level of awareness, it’s genuinely hard for me to believe these people exist in real life.

I published my seminal piece discussing the repulsion I feel with today’s political environment back in February in the post, Lost in the Political Wilderness. Now’s a perfect time to reread that piece, but here’s an excerpt if you’re short on time:

I think the U.S. citizenry is being afflicted by a sort of mass insanity at the moment. There are no good outcomes if this continues. As a result, I feel compelled to provide a voice for those of us lost in the political wilderness. We must persevere and not be manipulated into the obvious and nefarious divide and conquer tactics being aggressively unleashed across the societal spectrum. If we lose our grounding and our fortitude, who will be left to speak for those of us who simply don’t fit into any of the currently ascendant political ideologies?


For those of you who consider yourselves to largely reside in the yellow state (2nd tier consciousness), I have one key message for you. There’s a very deliberate attempt to manipulate you into devolving back into one of the lower tiers. Likewise, there is a very deliberate attempt to prevent those on the cusp of higher consciousness from ever evolving. The reason is simple. The lower tiers are very tribal and easily divided and conquered. The higher tiers are not.

Unlike most people writing articles on Charlottesville, I’m not going to spend my time getting on a pedestal to prove to everyone how much I hate neo-Nazis. My contempt for bigotry and violence has been a constant theme throughout all my writings over the years. In contrast, the purpose of this piece is to try to knock some sense into people so that we don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. Let’s start by discussing a tweet I wrote earlier today.

I set myself up for hysterical criticism with that tweet by saying “both sides,” which dishonest people will surely twist into support for Trump’s commentary on this weekend’s violence. I don’t care. While I certainly don’t want to minimize the disturbing scenes from Charlottesville, and the terrible loss of life and multiple injuries that occurred, it’s always important to keep our eyes on the bigger picture.

Specifically, we need to review some obvious facts. Neo-nazis and antifa didn’t destroy the middle class. They didn’t start an unnecessary and barbaric war in Iraq either. Neither of these groups jack up prescription drugs, nor do they poison your water or food supply. Oligarchs and their political minions do that. Violent Americans dressing up in Halloween costumes aren’t the real threat, oligarchs are, but the corporate media doesn’t want to talk about that. This is precisely why they focus so heavily on clueless protestors and counter-protestors punching each other. It benefits the true power structure in America.

I’ve got no affinity for neo-Nazis or antifa, but I also recognize them to be a relative sideshow compared to the far more pressing threats we face today. You can discern where the true power lies based on what the corporate media chooses to focus on, and what it chooses to ignore. An obsession with useful idiot American protestors punching each other is very similar to the 9-month incessant focus on Russia election conspiracy theories. It perfectly aids the agenda of the real power structure in this country. Creating outrage about neo-Nazis and Russia doesn’t hurt oligarchs; in fact, it helps their cause. It diverts attention and energy away from the true cancer destroying society, and provides the added benefit of allowing terrible people to get up on soapboxes. Condemning neo-Nazis is easy and takes no real courage, which is why oligarchs and their spokespeople salivate at the opportunity to use it to advance their own unrelated interests. Here are two examples of what I mean.

First, there’s Neera Tanden of the centrist-Democratic aligned Center for American Progress. The political ideology of such people can be best summarized as: “oligarchs are great as long as they support abortion.” Theirs is a dying ideology — soon to be extinct — but they’re desperately attempting to hang on to their dwindling relevance. While I’m sure neo-Nazi marches genuinely outrages such people, it’s telling that they immediately use such an opportunity to shift the conversation away from economic populism (which they despise), back to politics of emotion and identity.

Adam Johnson perfectly took her to task for exploiting the violence to attack leftist economic populists who remain stubbornly focused on the problems of oligarchy.

That’s nothing though compared to the CEO of Goldman Sachs, who unsurprisingly, jumped on the opportunity to make himself look like a good guy compared to neo-Nazis. Naturally, the corporate media was right there to amplify the vacuous preening of this Wall Street oligarch.


Apex financial predators and pharmaceutical company CEOs are suddenly heroic figures. See how easy that was?

So here’s my point.

Yes, neo-Nazis are terrible people, and violent neo-Nazis are even worse; but so are violent leftist protestors and anti-protestors. Anyone dressing up in a costume looking for a fight is unhelpful to those of us who want to actually deal with the multitude of things that have gone awry in this country.

Personally, I’m not going to be manipulated into thinking these fringe groups of lunatics represent the real problem in America. I know who really ran this country into the ground, and it’s not them. It’s the oligarchs and their apologists who are now out there acting like the voice of reason.

Play into the divide and conquer game all you want, just recognize that if you don’t know who the sucker at the political table is, it’s probably you.

Fuck it. Burn it all down.If antifa fags are teaming up with police and being given free rein to break whatever laws.Burning down your house is next.The best chance for productive white folks is to be prepared to survive the collapse.Hurry it along.

The DNC and lefties are twisting everything into race and sex. After 8 years of Democrat and Republican destruction of America (sending jobs to China and Mexico, soaring cheap immigrant labor, Obamacare, etc) they know what they have done and are working 24/7 to distract from their hatred of Americans, black and white.Trump's platform is job creation, building the economy, renegotiating trade deals, etc to help th emiddle and lower classes and the lefties don't like that. I have not heard even one Demcrap mention jobs in the past year; not Hillary, not Schumer, not maxine, no one.The only thing we hear from their mouths is raycist tirades and/or Russia, Russia, Russia.

Some asshats on the talk radio here in the Phoenix metro area were going on and on about how Trump is pro kkk because he didn't renounce them fast/hard enough.... "The poor girl was killed" was an ongoing theme.So, they take some callers, and all six of them blamed antifa, told them they were dead wrong, told them they should expect a lot more dead if the leftists aren't reigned in, and told them to stop toeing the corporate line with their MSM fake news.So they went to commercial and came back saying Trump was pro kkk and "that poor girl was killed".SO INFURIATING!

I agree that some of these groups are 'just a sideshow'but here's what isn't a sideshow......last week I was forced to finally attend an "anti harassment" training course that I've been avoiding for a long time...I went.I learned (what I already knew)......that if you bully a white guy, too bad for him....if you bully a black guy, it's harassment and grounds for....etc....if you bully a white guy, to bad for him.....if you bully a woman, it's harassment and grounds for.....etc. ...if you insult a white guy, to bad for him....if you insult a guy who thinks he's a woman, it's harassment and grounds for....etc....if you fire a white guy, to bad for him....if you fire an old lazy fart, perhaps that's age descrimination and you could be taken to court...etc...Basically, everyone on the damn planet belong  to a...and I quote the law "protected class" EXCEPT for a lightly completed male.  (I also know that is a genetically inferior completion because I burn way too easily)HOW IN THE HELL CAN LAWS LIKE THIS NOT TRIGGER ANGER and FRUSTRATION!!!

It's obvious. The car attacker was controlled opposition or MK Ultra. Who uses their own car and without at least removing the license plates? It would be like a bank robbery where the robbers didn't wear masks. This attack was meant for all to see to create the narrative to start a civil war between right and left. By design.

You can talk about Soros, and justifiably so. But when you talk about Soros, you have to talk about Obama and David Brock.Obama is like a cancer that won't go away. I don't think he has as much control of the CIA anymore as your website claims. Rather, as a private citizen he is in the same business as Brock.Brock is Soros' 'mystery man' hiding in plain sight. You HAVE TO talk about Media Matters and all it's subsidiaries. This is where all your media manipulation (bribery) and paid agitators come from; Obama's OFA is the same type of NGO.There is some evidence that Kessler was on their payroll as much as 5 years ago. Both sides were contracted to co-opt the protest, and the whole mess stinks of Obama and Brock.Cut the shit with the 'CIA and FBI did it' memes. This ain't the Boston Marathon. That is, unless you're purposefully deflecting...Name names and go after the NGOs.

ht to zh'er janus for pointing this out. The drone video here is showing a maroon colored minivan running people over. Almost like a rehearsal.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4789682/Drone-footage-shows-man… the banana Jeff Sessions, who jumped on the badwagon to call this "domestic terrorism", and Trump, are capable of noticing the subtle nuances between a grey dodge and a marron minivan.Also the organizer of "Unite the Right", a guy named Kessler, was a Barkey supporter invilved with the "Occupy" thing.

I posted this earlier but the conspiracy comment applies here as well: "You notice how the psychopath in Charlottesville was a washed out soldier, so the government knew all about his mental problems.  Just like soldiers John Lee Muhammad, the Beltway sniper in 2002 and Nidal Hasan, the 2009 Ft. Hood mass murderer.  Among others."This whole event in Charlottesville reeks of a false flag incident. The police there did nothing material to separate the two psycho groups.  The use of a car as a weapon plays right into the NWO plans to de-demonize the "Syrians" the NWO is shipping all over the West to economically destroy Western civilization.  See, not only jihadists kill people with cars and trucks.  Those Civil War statues have been up for a hundred years or more.  Statues can't hurt you but what about Bush and Obama looting the USA of over 3 trillion dollars to pay for wars in the Middle East at the behest of their NWO, Rothschild and Saudi organ grinders?  No one in the Fake Media will deal with that question.

Maybe I don't understand.  I believe the charger was being pelted with objects.  The guy reacted.  Excessive possibly, a jury will have to decide.....but in his shoes I likely would have floored it as well.Nationalism is not facism.... what we have when LE stands down is f acism.  Read about the destruction of public property that has occurred since the event with LE jyst watching.

If a State of Emergency had been declared, why were all those Antifa, BLM, and Leftists still on the streets several hours later?Did they have a permit?Or just "permission" from Clintonista Terry McAuliffe?In case you missed it: Carrying flags to a PA system in a public park under legal permit is Unlawful Assembly. Throwing bricks, bottles of human feces, spraying acid, bear spray, and swinging baseball bats is OK.Sam Francis called it decades ago: Anarcho-tyranny.Prepare to reap the whirlwind.

Agree Mike, Alt-Right can't afford to be provoked.  This idiot neonazi that ran down the antifa brain dead was a gift from heaven, creating martyrs. And it looks like this confederate statue narrative has legs for the MSM / libtards.  We'll see lots of monuments coming down in the next few months.  This diversion will be forcing the Russian collusion narrative out of prime time.  Oh, and Robert E Lee liberated his own slaves before the civil war broke out.

I am thinking we cull these assholes out first for target practice, they are dead weight and a drag on society anyway, then we'll go take out the Elites who think they are so smart starting all these diversions so they can keep looting! Except.....some torture maybe in order for the Elites before the Bulls-Eye appears on their forehead! The biggest mistake TPTB have underestimated is that the people that are awake are prepared and armed to the teeth at a rate never saw before in history!

Hey Mike, you have a problem with neo Nazis fighting Soros funded groups? If you do, lets hear about it right now, We need to know where you stand. Please respond here.... it sounds like you want change, but you don't want to hurt anyones feelings... too bad, if thats the case. Maybe you can join the PC crowd and change the name Liberty Blitzkrieg to Liberty Sorority

the "alt right" is just another made-up bullshit little box.  All of the views espoused by all the various factions people put into their little right wing (or left wing) boxes have not changed in decades and don't need yet another false label to envelope them, catalog them and mark them as targets of extermination.  Look people, it's not fucking rocket surgery - you can agree or disagree with whomever you want, but bottom line is that the "good guys" will defend their right to say whatever fucking bullshit they feel like spouting...the bad guys not so much.  Thems the only categories you need to worry over...good guys and bad guys.  There rest is all bullshit designed to make it harder for you to determine which is which.

Obama was prez then and he looked the other way as muzlims killed Americans and BLM slaughtered police. Watch jesse Waters recent youtube showing Obama's reaction to the club massacre and to the police slaughter. It's seriously disgusting.Obama's hatred of America is another reason gays voted for Trump and many blacks did also. Even black ministers came out supporting Trump since they saw the evil in Obama and Hillary.FBI had even interviewed that muzzie and Lowrenta received orders from Jarrett and Hussein to pull back those agents following the killer. Thus, they encouraged him to kill all those gays by letting him loose even though the fbi knew he was dangerous. I don't know many gays but the ones I do know are Trump supporters. Several of my neighbors are middle class blacks who are small businessmen and support Trump also. They are not stupid and saw what was happening.

Much too early to contemplate taking sides.  Both sides stocked with useful idiots and nonsense.  Let it render a bit, boil down a bit.  You have 4 more years until Kamala comes to take away your guns for your safety.  California, less time than that.  Ready with those thumbprints and DoD files to buy plinkin' .22LR, boys?!  Try January 1, 2018...  "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

Remember your real enemies. The Intellectual Yet Idiot classes ruling MORONS.

The real enemies of the American People are not each other. They aren't black, white, yellow or any other color. They don't live in ghettoes. They don't in small town America. They don't live in the South or the West or the North or the East.

The real enemies of the American People:

* Are the banking gangsters and Con Street Swindlers and the criminal crony capitalist conporations;
* banking gangsters who conjure fiat currency out of thin air to buy the political parasites and fund illegal wars of aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and in Ukraine against the Russian Federation;
* hate Christianity and will do anything to destroy Christianity in the West just like the Bolsheviks tried to do the Orthodox Christianity in Russia;
* bribery-blinded political parasites who unquestioningly do their Oligarch masters bidding and have financially crippled America under $200 trillion in onerous debt and unpayable obligations;
* live in $ multi-million gated communities, in luxury high rises, penthouse suites, beachfront mansions, and in the beltway around Sodom & Gomorrah on the Potomac;
* send YOUR sons and daughter off to die, be maimed or PTSD'd fighting insane wars in the Middle East, for the glory of Apartheid Israel and high profits for the War Profiteers, while THEIRS stay safely home laughing and partying as free, rich civilians (just like during the Vietnam War) while millions of Veterans and other Americans go hungry and homeless;
* go to prestigious private medical clinics while Veterans are sloughed off to the indifferent and incompetent Veterans Administration (if they're lucky, otherwise they get nothing);
* go to prestigious clerking schools like the Ivy League to learn how to strip mine the American People's wealth;
* staff the LYING Anglo-Zionist LÜGENPRESSE (mainstream media & entertainment oligopoly) and social media propaganda machines;
* are the political parasites, anti-American Oligarchs and criminal crony capitalists who sent 10's of thousands of factories and 10's of millions of jobs to Communist China solely to drive down wages and increase profits;
* fund domestic terrorists (Antifa, Soros, BLM) and supply arms and supplies to foreign terrorist (Al Qaeda, ISIS) groups;
* destroyed the American economy making 102 million Americans permanently unemployed and making 46 million Americans dependent on food from the government all the while crowing that unemployment is just 4.3%;
* enslaved tens of millions in inner city poverty by destroying families, with welfare and government-run indoctrination centers (public school systems);
* the regime's notorious SCOTUS "super legislature" that overthrew the principle of, "one man, one vote" for the Oligarch's "one dollar, one vote";
* import millions of third world refugees to destroy wages, traditional American values, culture and the Republic;
* try to blame their criminality, corruption and failures on the American People or on Russia;

Remember that while they are trying to get us to go to war against each other.

Remember your real enemies. The Intellectual Yet Idiot classes ruling MORONS.

I have a brain. I try to be rational, pragmatic, and objective. I have no fucking idea what yellow state / second tier consciousness means. Hippie dippie chakra nonsense as far as I can tell. Oh sure, that is going to work well when cities start to burn and the bullets are flying.
