Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions.
Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new, wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.
And that is the fundamental basis of the a cappella agitpop that tries to pass itself off as news in America. The Lamestream Media’s go-to play is to find something, no matter how localized or minute, spin it into something outrageous, and sensationalize it in order to turn it into a widespread “issue” that demands the readers’ or viewers’ attention and reaction. Simply put, it’s how they make their money.
And, when the Lamestream Media is particularly successful, e.g., any negative encounter between a Black and the police, they create an actual nationwide problem that further feeds attention and money to the “news” media’s coffers.
This is a case where punctuation marks are critical, specifically the quotation marks around American. This is because, while they live inside our borders and were probably even born within them, Liberals aren’t American in any way except legalistically.
One can see this by what specifically they are outraged by while being silent upon- and supporting similar but far worse things as long as they are being perpetrated by foreigners, preferably non-White foreigners. It shows that they don’t have issues with the actions, they have issues with America and traditional American values and cultural mores and icons.
That’s the thing; Liberals aren’t exactly hypocrites, they’re just disingenuous about what outrages them. They’re not against homophobia, racism, slavery, etc. They’re against America and Americas, especially White Americans.
The above being the case, Liberals aren’t Americans and should not be considered as our countrymen except in those respects mandated by the Constitution – which we must abide by for good or ill.
It’s a simple comparative study of both the facts of #BlackLivesMatter/#antifa riots and insurrection vs. the singular act of some few Americans storming the Capitol and the result outrage promulgated by the Congressional Democrats and their media.
The findings are equally simple. The nationwide outrage over the assault upon the Capitol is utterly falsely based and manufactured. The Left and their minority sharecroppers are not intrinsically bothered by violence, not even nationwide, extreme violence. They’re only bothered when it’s not Blacks and their “White” enablers committing the violence. And they’re furthered outraged because the assault was caused by the firmly held and not truly unwarranted belief on the part of the Americans involved that the Dems stole the 2020 election in order to install Biden as POTUS.
Ashli Babbitt – White Enough To Die Without Outrage
On January 6, 2021, 25-year-old Air Force veteran, Ashli Babbitt was fatally shot in the neck by a plain-clothed Capital Police officer while storming the Capitol in protest over the Democrats’ election “shenanigans.” She was unarmed at the time of her being shot.
NOTE: I’m actually natively hosting this evidentiary video. I certainly don’t trust Twitter or YouTube to keep it up and available. Frankly, to do so would be foolish.
Now, I’m not going to second guess the officer who shot her. I wasn’t there and do not have a 360° panoramic view of the area of operations. Nor do I have audio for the preceding time in the engagement. Hence, it is both not a place and irresponsible to make a determination upon how “righteous” his killing of Mrs. Babbitt was.
I do, however, have a lot of information on the Democrats’ and their sorts’ historical responses to “peaceful protests” and “police-involved shootings.”
The nature of the Lamestream Media’s coverage of her shooting and resultant death and that of the Left on various social media platforms make it’s more than abundantly clear that Ashli Babbitt’s was White enough to die by police action without be mourned or being the cause of outrage among the Left and their minority sharecroppers.
Face it; the savages of #BlackLivesMatter and their self-hating enablers, #Antifa, have been rioting, looting, burning, murdering, raping, and assaulting random, innocent White people across America for most of the last year, always with the excuse of their feral behavior being caused by the police killing a Black. And, of course, anyone and everyone with allegiance to the Democrats has condoned this and appropriate the same outrage as their own.
And yet, since Mrs. Babbitt was a White woman, they think she got what she deserved for taking her own sincerely held patriotic outrage – wrongly based and foolish or not – directly to the current seat of power of the actual party of people who are to blame.
Yeah, a large swath of the sorts living within our nation’s borders are at the point where they sincerely believe that Ashli Babbitt was White enough to die without outrage.
It’s honestly like that these days and has been in ever-increasing severity for many years. Various Leftist and other anti-White/anti-American sorts, e.g., the entirety of the “Black Community,” are tuned to- and trained for being outraged by whatever the Lamestream media tells them be outraged over.
Understand, these sorts are addicted to being outraged. The Lamestream media, reinforced by the social media platforms, has hooked them on it and turned them into outrage junkies. And, like all dealers in destructive things, they greatly profit from their junkies. Indeed, the closest analogy I can come up with is the Lamestream media “whores out” the outrage junkies, much like some pimps addict their “strings” to ensure some level of commitment and loyalty. This is because, to the media, those junkies are products, not customers.
It’s A Total BUMMER
Jaron Lanier, one of the pioneers of Virtual Reality, coined the acronym, BUMMER in his 2018 book, Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now. It means ‘Behaviors of Users Modified and Made into Empires for Rent’ and it aptly describes what the Lamestream Media and Social Media does. They addict people to the outrage they peddle, then rent them to their advertisers and/or the Democrat party.
Social media is biased, not to the Left or the Right, but downward. The relative ease of using negative emotions for the purposes of addiction and manipulation makes it relatively easier to achieve undignified results. An unfortunate combination of biology and math favors degradation of the human world. Information warfare units sway elections, hate groups recruit, and nihilists get amazing bang for the buck when they try to bring society down.
— Jaron Lanier
Lanier, due to his tech hyperfocus, focuses on Social Media, but one can see the same pattern for the same economic reasons in the larger, more traditional media forms and outlets as well. Also, while there might not have been a bias to the Left, there is such a bias today. The new generation of media employees started work with their outrage addiction already in place and getting their fix is easier when their worldview has been modified to fit a Leftist ideology.
Yeah, the sheeple on the Left have been hooked on the dopamine-driven outrage response by the Lamestream and Social Media. They just get their fix from their phone, phablets, tablets, and PCs instead of from a needle, pipe, or line. In the end, junkies are junkies and dealers are dealers.
