The careful reader of my musings will remember that one of my hobbies is collecting conspiracy theories. As a collector I’m always on the lookout for the latest and greatest conspiracy theory. The most interesting one making the rounds right now is that the corona virus is nothing more than a test run to see how quickly and easily the American public can surrender their God given, Constitutionally protected rights. While it’s not as sexy as the idea that John Kennedy’s brain is alive and well on a yacht cruising the Indian ocean and running the democratic party, a case can be made that there is more evidence for the former theory than the latter one.
This idea is best explored in two parts. The first concerns the absolute hoax of the corona virus. The second is the coordinated appearance and actions of a bevy of liberal democrat tin plated dictators.
“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants.” Camus
In the last few weeks several studies have come out confirming that the corona virus is not deadlier than the flu. Even the vaunted canard that the virus is most deadly to the over 60 crowd seems to be suspect. Consider that Bill Lapschies age 104, Keith Watson age 101, an unnamed 106 year old women, Zhang Guangfen age 103, a 100 year old Chinese man and a 102 year old Pennsylvania man all recovered from corona. In fact something over 98% of people who catch the virus completely recover. I bet you didn’t know that although I bet you have memorized the “stay home, stay safe” propaganda.
Speaking of propaganda, I’m guessing you’ve heard “flatten the curve” at least a million times by now. This position made a certain amount of sense in the beginning when little to nothing was known about the virus. The curve argument was made thus, a steep curve allowed the virus spread rapidly, potentially burying hospitals with more patients than beds, medicine and equipment could handle. The advantage of the flatter curve is that it preserves the healthcare systems ability to respond to a steady stream of a smaller number of victims.
As I look back I see it didn’t take long for those in leadership roles and the media to confuse the contagiousness of the virus with lethality. It’s true the virus is highly contagious. It’s also true that it is only barely lethal in general terms. From the so called mainstream media clear down to our local media everyone was directed to panic and panic quickly.
We know for a fact that the virus virtually ignores children. We know for a fact that half the people who catch the virus never have any symptoms. Of the remaining half most of them present symptoms so mild that they do not seek medical attention. Roughly ten percent of covids victims have symptoms severe enough to cause them to seek medical attention.
Honestly, the complete shutdown of America was provably not necessary.
The Tin Plated Dictators
“There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.” Daniel Webster
I find it fascinating that it took an imported virus from a deeply communist country to cause so many democrat and RINO republicans to reveal their tyrannical fantasies. Around the country the number of tin plated dictators with delusions of godhood seemed to explode. They stride boldly across the political stage wiping their feet on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to “protect” us from the deadly virus that carries with it a 98 plus percent survival rate. Consider the following.
Raleigh N.C. police declared the act of protesting the lockdown a “none essential activity” threatening to arrest protesters.
A Dallas salon owner is fined and imprisoned for opening her business responsibly instead of sitting around until bankruptcy was her only option.
Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Hitler, uhm sorry, Whitmer thundered righteously “All public gatherings of any size are prohibited.”
A lone paddle boarder was arrested on Malibu beach in California. This is the same state that fined people watching the sunset in their cars $1,000.
In Denver, the mayor banned playing Frisbee and Football.
The mayor of Los Angeles threatens to cut off utilities to any business that opens without his permission.
Other states have banned people from traveling between homes or visiting friends or relatives.
In some areas realtors brave a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail for showing prospective buyers a home.
A couple of states have gone as far as banning church services being held in parking lots. Little tyrant wannabes, disguised as law enforcement, went as far as recording license plate numbers of anyone attending services.
So much for the God given right to “peaceably assemble” or worship.
It gets worse. Several states have established snitch hot lines. New Yorks lecherous lover of murderous dictators, Comrade de Blasio instructed his cities useless busybodies to take cell phone pictures of anyone not properly social distancing and text them to his storm troopers. The potential fine is up to $500. The Los Angeles mayor one upped commie de Blasio by promising to reward his cities snitches.
“The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” Frederick Douglass.
Despite the threats, many Americans are starting to realize they have been played. They are starting to learn that the virus while highly contagious, was no more deadly than the average flu. They are beginning to understand that they were maneuvered into a totally unnecessary shutdown. The slowly dawning realization that all the financial and emotional turmoil foisted on them was little more than a dictators wet dream being realized is beginning to stir a deeply justified righteous anger. This realization is also prompting questions, the kind of questions the little tyrants don’t well tolerate.
Why are Christian churches are forced to close while moslem mosques remain unaffected.
Why are lottery tickets, liquor stores, pot shops and abortions considered essential services?
Why are hardened criminals being released into the public instead of serving out their terms?
By what right do you get to track our every move and spy on us without due process?
By what right do you surrender our rights for us?
With no reasonable answers forthcoming, or in fact even possible, many Americans are starting to fight back.
In Denver thousands of people staged a drive by protest at the state capitol. For hours they drove by, honked their horns and waved American flags. Around a thousand more families cheered them on from the capitol lawn.
In Michigan some ten thousand protesters gathered at the state capitol.
In Kentucky angry protesters shouted down democrat governor Beshear with “Facts not fear” and “We want to work.”
A Dallas salon owner responsibly opened her business despite being fined and jailed.
A 77 year old barber fights to stay in business after the state yanks his business license.
A growing number of duly elected Sheriffs are refusing to comply with patently unconstitutional orders.
Even a handful of state governors have joined the rebellion against tyranny, notable Kemp and Desantis.
In formerly free America despotism seems to be losing some of it’s coolness. It took long enough. So, now back to the conspiracy theory.
Over the forty years or so that I have been observing liberals I have noticed that, at the highest levels of leadership, they possess a fanatical devotion to their ideology. Like the Chinese they understand and are willing to play the “long game.” It seems clear to me that the singular purpose of this pandemic was to test the waters of despotism in America.
I’m not sure which saddens me more, the number of people willing to surrender their liberties for the faintest whiff of security, the number of people who don’t know what liberties they have or the number of people willing to subjugate everyone they can. The founding principles that made America the greatest country in the history of the world escape them. Yet it would be a mistake to think there is no evil genius behind their actions during this pandemic.
While the entry level despots flail around at the local level those in the moneyed leadership positions are taking careful notes. Understand, they likely never expected this effort to succeed in completely overthrowing our republic. This was a dry run and the results were better than they had hoped for. Still, the plan was to observe and learn so that the next iteration will have a much higher chance of success.
They observe and note who among us rises to defend liberty. We will be tracked and monitored to establish what methods can be used to silence us the next time.
I can hear you now, “Wait a minute Sailor, what do you mean?” Allow me to explain.
They curate the arguments against them to create more effective answers, diversions and misinformation for the next time.
They monitor the effectiveness of social media platforms, campaigns and censorship algorithms to improve their reach and effectiveness.
They identify as many of the ways ordinary people go around those social media platforms to distribute information as they can and plot disruption techniques.
They identify and target leaders/public officials who oppose them at every level so that they can be targeted for removal from office.
They monitor the effectiveness of private groups that support them and oppose them. How can supporters be strengthened, opponents be weakened. Which groups can they rely on and for what can each organization be counted upon.
Leaders of and mid-level company bureaucrats in the business community are being identified and categorized as to their projected levels of support and influence for the next time.
I think you start to get the picture.
Understand this, these people are deadly serious about eliminating the Constitution and all the rights it safeguards for us. This current effort at total subjugation will fail, but they always expected it to. Their next attempt will be the same but different.
They will be better prepared and you will be better indoctrinated.
They will have replaced as many elected officials who now oppose them as possible with mail in voting.
Your social media platforms will be much more ruthlessly censored.
They won’t make the mistake of shutting down the schools next time. The ability to send home armies of brainwashed minions is simply to valuable to pass up.
Groups like antifa, bamn and the nation of islam will be much more active with their intimidation and civil unrest tactics.
Sadly it’s not a question of if this effort is tried again, it’s a question of when will it be tried again. My money is on the following scenario, republicans win the 2024 presidential election, hold the Senate and wins back the House. The only real questions left are, will you be ready and what will you do?
