5 Ways The Media Responded With Butthurt to Donald Trump’s Election Night Victory

dt

The Marxists in the American media whined like bitches as Trump pulled off an upset

The media doesn’t even try to hide its shameless pro-Socialist bias these days. Since nobody really pays attention to them anymore, you might have missed some of the more entertaining butthurt spouted by shameless propagandists posing as journalists the night Trump beat all their echo chamber expectations.

Election night coverage on the propaganda news channels is a lesson in hilarity when examining the reaction of lamestream media talking heads. What is most entertaining about Trump’s ascendancy to the Oval Office is that it was totally unexpected, catching cocksure Marxists at CNN and other alphabet channels completely off guard.

Let’s go over some of the more entertaining reactions Election Night.

5. Hillary Shill Martha Raddatz Breaks Down In Tears

Over at ABC, the wrinkled old Hillary shill Martha Raddatz was at a loss for words as she attempted to perform an off the cuff hamster rationalization to fellow Clinton operative George Staphylococcus, explaining why The Bitch lost the election.

Raddatz looked like her mother just died as victory turned into defeat for the criminal Hillary Clinton. She’s sure to be moving from a pack of smokes a day to two packs a day as the reality of the election continues to settle into her pea brain over the next 4 years. Her tears say more than her boilerplate language ever could.

4. Bernstein Plays The Race Card

To the mainstream media, white people voting in accordance with their own self-interest is racist. In fact, white people acting in any other manner than total subservience is racist to CNN. Washington Post “journalist” Carl Bernstein even went so far as to say Trump’s election is “tragic and dangerous” as despondent and quite possibly drugged CNN propagandists looked on. Bernstein seemed most upset about Trump’s immigration policy proposals, in which Mexico will no longer be able to flagrantly let its citizens violate U.S. immigration law.

Bernstein completely forgot the racism white people have endured all year long at the hands of Black Lives Matter, La Raza and other black and brown supremacist groups.

3. Chris Matthews Goes Into Hamster Rationalization Mode

Hamster rationalizations are usually reserved for women, but effeminate, low-T manlets like Chris Matthews also have them. His first spin of the hamster wheel makes him say Hillary won the debates. She didn’t. Then he says she had the best ad campaign. Nobody believes advertising or anything you say, anymore Chris. Then Matthews says she had the best ground game. She might have, but she was a terrible candidate. The half-man, half-alligator James Carville looked ready to give Chris a hug as the reality of Hillary’s defeat began to settle in on MSNBC.

2. The Racist Van Jones Whines About White People

Van Jones looked like he needed a change of underwear as he fell back on tired, old leftist talking points from the 1960s about the evil white male—especially white males that haven’t been turned into geldings. He then goes on with an emotional overreaction to say families will be afraid to have breakfast the next day because whitey got back into office. LMFAO. Really, dude?

He then says immigrants are afraid now that Trump is going to be President. No Van, immigrants aren’t afraid. Illegal hordes who figuratively if not literally say “Fuck you!” to U.S. immigration law are afraid, as they should be.

Jones then goes on to make a supremely ironic quote as he talks about a so-called white-lash: He says Trump’s campaign was based on “Throwing away some of us to appeal more deeply to others.” Umm, isn’t that what the entire platform of the Democratic party is, Van? Throwing away, nay, crucifying white men to appeal more deeply to others? Your entire career is based on just that, Mr. Jones.

1. CBS Does A Mea Culpa

CBS was so stunned it did a full mea culpa on the network’s shoddy coverage of the 2016 election. This stunning article entitled “The Unbearable Smugness of the Press” needed to be written 10 years ago. Better late than never. CBS actually echoed what we in the manosphere and alt-right have been saying since day one with the Op-Ed piece.

This is all symptomatic of modern journalism’s great moral and intellectual failing: its unbearable smugness. Had Hillary Clinton won, there’d be a winking “we did it” feeling in the press, a sense that we were brave and called Trump a liar and saved the republic.

The Eyeball network even admitted the contempt the network has for men like us.

So much for that. The audience for our glib analysis and contempt for much of the electorate, it turned out, was rather limited. This was particularly true when it came to voters, the ones who turned out by the millions to deliver not only a rebuke to the political system but also the people who cover it. Trump knew what he was doing when he invited his crowds to jeer and hiss the reporters covering him. They hate us, and have for some time.

And can you blame them? Journalists love mocking Trump supporters. We insult their appearances. We dismiss them as racists and sexists. We emote on Twitter about how this or that comment or policy makes us feel one way or the other, and yet we reject their feelings as invalid.

Damn. At least some people over there know why we hate them. (That includes this former mainstream media news anchor who defected!)

marxism

Got Marxism? It’s the guiding philosophy of the alphabet channels

Shameless Activism

Anyone who has the capacity to perform an iota of critical thinking knows the mainstream media is NOT on the side of the average American. It hates and seethes at traditionalists and works to tear down every institution of Western civilization while attempting to impale the most hated of creatures on this planet, the Evil White Male.

The rebuke of a sorry candidate like Hillary when the socialist shills thought she was a shoe-in caught the smug son of a bitches off guard. Their reactions are priceless, and need to be documented and remembered. More than anything else, the tears and deer in the headlight reactions prove the media are in the tank for the Democrats/Socialists and New World Order globalism.

Flabbergasted reactions from old school mediaites, mortified that the “unwashed” masses didn’t behave as they were told to by the propagandists are also undeniable proof that blogs like Return Of Kings, and web sites like Breitbart and Drudge are sorely needed, indispensable resources in this day and age.

We have not been getting the truth from media for generations. And now, as alternative voices appear, the rift between the two versions of reality grows wider and deeper. The once mainstream media have become nothing but shameless activists for the corporate-government complex. The election night “horror show” only solidifies this point.

Just as the Alphabet Soup channels are shameless Marxists, we should also be proud to be activists pushing our own agenda, if nothing else to balance the scales and provide alternative voices. Except, we don’t hide our biases and pretend to be neutral like they do. Ultimately, the tired old Socialist media must be dismantled in order for freedom and traditionalism to survive. Expect a fight to the death as the beast refuses to go down without a fight. Next up: The presstitutes waging a war on “fake news” on the Internet. As if anyone believes a word they have to say anymore.

New Censorship and Surveillance Technology Will Make Orwell’s Big Brother Seem Tame

skinny-white-girl

Searching for articles on how to hit that? Big Brother says you should instead look at these articles telling you what an evil misogynist you are

Do you really like sexy women like the one in the photo above? Are you sure? Big Brother Google says “Why don’t you look at this story about alternative lifestyles about men who have realized what terrible misogynists they are for having sexual desires?” rather than searching for articles on for pick-up artistry.

Sooner rather than later, all Internet roads will lead to the same New World Order Socialist philosophy.

As profiling of Internet users becomes more prolific and the algorithms more sophisticated in the coming years, the news and information we search for will be tailored to slowly “nudge” us one way or the other politically, one small step at a time.

The management of the information we get to read is already in its infancy.

Why do you think that “free” app on your phone that only performs a few functions swells in size with each “update” that is released? Do you really think they give a damn about your privacy and are plugging security holes? Hell no. The apps we download are moving from useful, low-resource using services to resource hogs (necessitating an upgrade in processing power every year or two) because they only provide us with a “free” service in order to hook us so the apps can gather information about everything we’ve ever written on our devices for social engineers and marketing flacks. The apps are becoming more sophisticated in the way they monitor everything we do – which is why the apps need all that memory size.

And soon, apps will be gathering information about everything we’ve ever said aloud by using the built in microphones on each device and speech recognition technology. CIA agents confirm microphones can easily be activated even when a device is switched completely off.

This type of information will be collected in giant databases such as the Utah Data Center, with the ultimate goal being the corporate-government complex knowing more about us than we know about ourselves.

Big Brother Was So Yesterday

Today’s information technology has put Big Brother on steroids.

The Waking Times details this frightful world that is already emerging as anyone who pays attention knows search engines are already tailoring information to what we search for and even what we text people about.

“Mr. X, we’ve studied the little virtual bubble you live in, and now we can sell you your own special brand of truth.”

Most of the time, the information one will see in this Internet bubble will be customized to suit a person’s interests. This is why Facebook relentlessly pushes the “Like a page or product” portion of its web site. This information is used to build a profile of a person that ultimately will be able to accurately predict the color of their next bowel movement.

If a man is interested in non-GMO foods advertising and “news” stories will be tailored to inform him of grocers who sell organics and about news from “approved” outlets with stories written on the topic. Most of the time, this will be insidious advertising and ads disguised as information.

“Hello, audience. We’re going to pitch you on becoming full-fledged obsessed consumers, as if there is no other worthy goal in life—and then we’re going to profile you from top to bottom, to find out exactly what kind of obsessed consumer you are, so we can hit you and trigger you with information that uniquely stimulates your adrenal glands…”

As another example: Okay, we know you are interested in traditional gender roles. We (the information managers like Facebook and Google) will now to find news stories and customize the information you get to read online in order to cause you to doubt the validity of your beliefs. The ultimate goal is to slowly but steadily move you away from believing in traditional gender roles to believing in militant feminism without you realizing what we have done.

This type of information management is even more insidious than outright censorship, as it will be designed to steer everyone towards what the controllers of society want us to think and buy, no matter how far from the ideal consumer and fellow traveler we may be.

Think of it as a game of Plinko on The Price is Right, in which all chips ultimately fall into the “perfect, braindead consumer” slot at the bottom of the maze. The social engineers’ dream is a world of nothing but sexless consumers who perform mindless work in meaningless jobs, whose only outlets for pleasure are shopping and eating out and other State-approved activities.

Think that’s hyperbole? Travel around the world for six months to a year, then come back to the United States and tell me what you think.

media

Customized brainwashing works better than one size fits all brainwashing

Little Information Bubbles Merge Into Big Information Bubbles

Once we have you believing a certain way or questioning your established beliefs, the key comes when it is time to steer public perception one way or the other. This is where the “rubber meets the road” in the realm of managing the populace like so many sheeple.

BUT when a Big One comes along, like the 2016 national election in the US, the separate tunes come together and ring as one. Then the overriding need to extend Globalism’s goals (in the person of Hillary Clinton) blot out every other priority. Then the major media twist whatever they need to twist. Then it’s the same bubble for everyone.

Soon, just like the mainstream media on television and in print, everything you see online will be directed at making you think, behave and vote a certain way. The micromanagement and control of information just hasn’t become that sophisticated – yet.

Obama already hinted that only “official” information should be linked up by the corporate interests of Facebook, Google, etc. Thankfully, The Bitch (Hillary) was not whisked into the Oval Office in which case these nefarious censorship techniques would be accelerated. But that doesn’t mean efforts at censorship by the elite will come to an end.

An Internet security “crisis” will likely be engineered in the near future in which—you guessed it—Big Daddy Government needs to step in and take control of the web. From there on out we will be back to corporate-government propaganda instead of the Libertarian’s dream the current iteration of the Internet is.

So, the awakening we have seen from the brainwashing of the corporate media will be a temporary one if the elite have anything to do with it. The groundwork of this new, Socialist system of micromanaging information is already being laid. You already see it every time you do a search.

Someday soon the only information we’ll be able to find online will be from sources the corporate-government complex approves of. Of course, there will be renegades and rebels like us who resist, but most of the braindead sheeple out there will go along to get along just as has been happening since time immemorial.

Our options will be to get off the grid or to move to a new Internet. Neither move will be peacefully tolerated by the powers that be.

The Media Must Be Dismantled in Order for Freedom to Survive

poltergeist

The Poltergeist film’s promotional photo can also be used to represent our daughters and women becoming casualties of the media

There is an evil wind blowing through America and the world, and the source of the hot air is the media—in all its forms. The news media is rightfully railed on from many corners for its outrageous portrayal of “reality,” but the way the media disease infects the body politic of America is much more insidious than talking heads in cheap suits.

The cancer of the media also permeates Hollywood film, sitcoms, and almost any other form of “entertainment” out there. Whether it’s degenerate whores pushing an agenda of pedophilia in their music videos, or another predictable “GrrlPower” song denigrating men, the music industry also plays its part in molding the American populace into mindless, overworked, sarcastic, sheep with abrasive personalities.

I recently dropped in for a visit to The Matrix because I still have family there, and I must say it was a jarring experience. From inadvertently stepping into a white girl strip club and noticing how frigid and listless the girls were, to making the rounds getting some food at the grocer watching people lumber around like zombies, to eating some slop at a fast food joint surrounded by fatasses, I must say I could not wait to get the fuck out of ‘Murica as quickly as possible. America is not a country as much as it is a coast to coast eatery and shopping mall. Sarcasm is now the national language.

These are things we’ve all heard before, but sometimes points deserve to be repeated. And most of the problem comes from social engineering via the media. This quote from Austrian philosopher Ivan Illich sums up the problems that troubled me as I observed people on my recent trip home, issues that left me terrified that this programmed environment is the blueprint for the entire world if the globalists have their way.

The machine-like behavior of people chained to electronics constitutes a degradation of their well-being and of their dignity which, for most people in the long run, becomes intolerable. Observations of the sickening effect of programmed environments show that people in them become indolent, impotent, narcissistic and apolitical. The political process breaks down because people cease to be able to govern themselves; they demand to be managed. [Emphasis mine.]

Prevalent almost everywhere I went was the media broadcasting messages of political apathy and consumerism, spraying human beings with so many figurative cans of Raid. Why do people watch this shit nonstop? The Howard Beale monologue from Network perfectly sums up the situation:

So if you want the Truth, go to God. Go to your gurus. Go to yourselves! …We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true!

But you people sit there, day after day, night after night — all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know! You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here! You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal.

You do whatever the tube tells you — You dress like the tube. You eat like the tube. You raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs! In God’s name, you people are the real thing.

We are the illusion!

Which leads me to my next point as a 15-year veteran and now refugee from the totally corrupt news industry.

beale

The 40 year old film “Network” foresaw the day we would need to collectively turn off our televisions

News Reporters Are Figurative Prostitutes

An old joke when I worked in the news industry was: the management are the pimps and we (the on-air personalities) are the prostitutes. As humorous as that may sound, it’s actually worse than that. The corporations are the pimps and the news networks are their prostitutes.

News has always been biased, but the American media exists for one reason and one reason only in 2016—to further the agenda of the corporate-government complex a.k.a. the globalists. What is the corporate-government complex? It was defined early this year by The New Modern Man as:

Large corporations (of which there are 16 that control over 90% of the products you consume at the grocery store and information you get to see or hear in the media) fund political campaigns and lobby for the government to have more power; in turn the government enacts laws favorable to large corporations. The left blames corporations while the right blames the government, when in reality the two interests work together to subvert the will of the people.

The thought has crossed my mind more than once that the 2016 presidential election has been decided before it even began. So why have the ruse? Because it’s profitable to stir the sheeple up into a frenzy and it serves the interests of the political power structure to keep us divided against one another. As long as black and white people are fighting each other they are not fighting the real evil in the world, which is why the media creates racial problems to create profit.

You will never get any truth from the media when it comes to politics and many other issues.

tv

Television and film affect the human brain in many troubling and subtle ways

You Are What You Watch

We’ve all heard the old maxim you are what you eat. This needs to be taken a step further: You are what you’re exposed to and what you see on television, whether you realize it or not.

Cracked actually wrote up an informative article detailing how movies affect the human brain. Here are the troubling findings.

  • The brain can’t separate fact from fiction
  • Stories are invented to control you (they always have been, even before movies)
  • The writer of a story always has an agenda (human nature, and in Hollywood, the influence of money)
  • Generations of Americans have been raised and educated by pop culture
  • Everything in the human brain is a story

See how film might just be one of the best brainwashing instruments ever conceived? When it comes to film being used to push political and social engineering schemes, Cracked wrote:

This isn’t some paranoid conspiracy theory — it’s a fundamental part of how human culture came about. Ask yourself: Why do we go watch superhero movies? After all, variations of these stories about brave, superhuman heroes predate recorded history. We used to tell them around campfires before written language even existed.

They were created as a way to teach you how to behave. The point is, this is why stories were invented — to shape your brain in a certain way. [Emphasis mine.]

In other words, careful what you watch, what you listen to, and especially what women and children are exposed to. It can literally wreck a society, as Hollyweird dreck and Miley Cyrus are wrecking this one.

turn_off

Turn off your TV and turn off corporate mind control

The Media Must Die

In short, mass media is the most insidious form of thought and mind control that has ever been conceived. It obviously molds people into the mess of broken humanity we now see coast to coast in America.

How do we fight back against this evil?

Whether through self-inflicted wounds i.e. the fact nobody believes the news channels anymore, or as The Simpsons suggested in Treehouse of Horror VI, when people turn off their television sets the media and its deleterious effects on society will go away. In that Simpsons episode, a cosmic radiation storm caused advertising symbols came to life, and Lisa ran to the ad agency that created them looking for a solution.

Lisa: If your advertising agency created all those giant characters, you must know how to stop them.

Advertising Man: Well sir, advertising is a funny thing. If people stop paying attention to it, pretty soon, it goes away.

Lisa: Like that old woman who couldn’t find the beef?

Advertising Man: Exactly. If you stop paying attention to the monsters, they’ll lose their powers.

The Simpsons metaphor works nicely. If we collectively stop paying attention to the media except to mercilessly call them out on their bullshit, while looking elsewhere for information and entertainment (how about starting by living exciting lives instead of watching overpaid idiots pretend to have exciting lives!) the monsters of social engineering and consumerism plaguing modern society will also lose their powers.

The Network film character Howard Beale gave us a premonition of what we must collectively do.

So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now! Turn them off right now! Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I’m speaking to you now. Turn them off!

Turning off mass media mind control from all centralized sources, including television, movies, and radio, may be the best thing we can do to cleanse the cancer eating Anglo society alive and turning the Western world towards abject tyranny.

I have personally not watched television in over a year since leaving the news industry, and my mind is more focused than it has ever been in my life. I will likely never own another television in my life. Come join me, life is better without mind control in your life.

The Wisdom of Crowds Has Replaced Gatekeeper-Ruled Communication

thinking

The Wisdom of Crowds phenomenon is creating a storm as it clashes with the elite gatekeepers’ thought control messages in the media

It’s often said the Internet is changing the world in more ways than we realize. It is without a doubt the most revolutionary development in the way our species communicates since the Gutenberg printing press. In the generation since its use became mainstream, the net has destroyed Big Media’s authority and credibility as the corporate sponsored fantasies they’ve pushed from their Ivory Towers in New York since the inception of television have disintegrated.

We live in a jaded age, but we also live in an age in which a new way of thinking and decentralized way of creating cultural narratives is being forged. Spurious claims and rubber stamp credentials no longer create authority figures, as the Internet eats false idols for breakfast. A rubber stamp from an Ivy League school means nothing if you are only spewing nonsense or Marxist agenda talking points that make no logical sense. That’s a big change from where we were just a generation ago, in which information was tightly controlled and heavily centralized.

The decentralization of information is so powerful it might just stop us all from becoming one with the “Borg” otherwise known as the New World Order. The Internet is truly messing up the Marxist narratives of its proponents. Expect globalists to try to take control of the Internet away from us as soon as the Presidential election is over. (Oh, and beware the Electoral College. Trump can win the popular vote and still lose the electoral vote. Population growth from immigrant communities is highest in the states that have the most electoral votes. More about that next week.)

Where would we in manosphere be without the web? We would be non-existent. Look at what we have been able to accomplish already even though the manosphere is just coming of age. Starting from a group of men figuring out how to game women in a culture that threw masculinity overboard—formulating opinions and hypotheses by sharing and exchanging information online—it has blossomed into a movement that not only instructs men in countercultural wisdom about the opposite sex, but one that has become source of true enlightenment as it is truly the pushing the envelope of free speech in the West. It is a way for men to know the unvarnished truth about women and the world in which we live.

As I wrote before, we have become the new Samizdat, so much so Time magazine is now doing hit pieces on us and Hillary Clinton is making speeches trying to get us to shut up.

crowd

Crowds often exhibit herd-like behavior; online they generate wisdom

Wisdom of Crowds

What gives us our strength? Thanks to a phenomenon known as wisdom of crowds many of the myths that give elites power over millions are now busted. Hillary cannot go on lying and expect the public to be lobotomized with a propaganda war on their minds by Lyin’ Brian Williams and his ilk. Frauds are regularly exposed online. Government narratives are subject to relentless scrutiny and the true objectives of public policy rather than the stated ones are gleaned by free and open online discussion. Similarly, corporations can no longer lie to the public with impunity about the wonders of products they want to push on us. As Abraham Lincoln said:

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

Make no mistake, the fact Big Media still exists and is a powerful foe (even though it is increasingly becoming a joke). The fact it remains is testimony to the fact you can fool some of the people all the time. The crucial difference is those you can’t fool are now having our say. And, the masses are finally starting to listen to us, or at least hear our ideas bounced around as the wisdom of crowds has a slow but sure trickle-down effect across the nation and the world.

The great gift of the web to our species is seldom discussed. The Internet is The Great Equalizer. It is the most democratic, most free market and freethinking invention ever conceived. The Internet allows Joe Blow to have an equal voice to the president if his publishing merits it in some way. Conversely, the President can be exposed for the Marxist fraud he is and his voice trusted less than Joe Blow’s voice. The people truly decide what flies and what doesn’t online. Hierarchies are now determined by the crowd, and when it is a wise crowd superior choices can be the result.

(Yes, sometimes this phenomenon often results in nothing but idiocy as many viral videos prove. But it can also result in astonishing genius and world-changing ideas. The latter is what we should strive for.)

Already, feminism, Cultural Marxism, white guilt, and any number of ideologies that held sway for 50 years are now having some wind blown up their dirty skirts and the stench concealed underneath them is being aired out. To see the wisdom of crowds at work, read the top “liked” comments on Disqus or a news site or even Facebook following a post or a Big Media claim. One can often find genius and revel in novel ideas and analysis. Or, at least a valid counterpoint.

The lies of the spinmeisters are so regularly exposed you now have some mainstream media sites censoring or disabling comments! Why? A bogus claim often does not hold up to the scrutiny of the crowd. Even if it survives the first round, when the bogus claim comes up again in enough circles the rationals of society (we are only 10% of the population) eventually go to work deconstructing it.

light

Online discussions often generate chaos, but in that chaos one can sift through and find an incredible amount of wisdom as well

Suroweiki on Wisdom of Crowds

If the Internet does end up saving the world from dystopian premonitions of Orwell, Huxley, and Bradbury, rational “wise crowds” are leading the way. When we are at our best in the manosphere, we are a wise crowd. This is why we must protect our access to the web, our unrestricted freedom to use it and our power of anonymity! According to James Surowiecki, author of The Wisdom Of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than The Few, a wise crowd forms when there is:

  • Diversity of opinion
  • Independence
  • Decentralization
  • Aggregation

In other words, the Internet is a breeding ground for wise crowds. Each person, using the power of true diversity of opinion (not the fake leftist style of diversity concealing an actual conformity) offers their own interpretation of events independently, even if that person is a nut job or an eccentric genius.

People also speak more boldly and originally when they’re anonymous. Facebook is the first step in erasing online anonymity is it requires “real names” and regularly closes user accounts using pen names and aliases. Diversity of opinion is important because the readers – people from all walks of life and with literally millions of years of collective experience in different areas – decide if the argument makes sense, not a panel of “experts” or a Marxist newsroom meeting.

The Internet offers independence since everyone is able to give their own unique opinion rather than parroting what they hear when information is centralized. The flow of information is decentralized, giving it a huge advantage over information censored and vetted by those who want to shape messages to fit their agendas. About the only thing we haven’t figured out very well yet is aggregation, or using the wisdom of crowds to form collective decisions.

We should be aware that homogeneity, or becoming opposed to new ideas and opinions, centralizing control of what we discuss and how we discuss it, curbing the spontaneous nature of our topics, copying old ideas without analyzing them first, and being overly emotional are the main enemies of the wisdom of crowds. We cannot become the mainstream media we are replacing.

Surowiecki says we can strengthen our arguments and the wisdom we provide to men by 1) Keeping our ties loose so as not to form hierarchies, 2) Keeping ourselves exposed to as many diverse sources of information as possible (i.e. know thy enemy and don’t get locked into particular ways of thinking) and 3) Forming groups that have a wide range of opinions.

The manosphere has already been taking advantage of the wisdom of crowds phenomenon to produce an entire community of well-informed and awakened men who are no longer oblivious and in the dark about what is being done to them and their nations in the West. It has single-handedly exposed the Anglo-American cultural Matrix. What remains is finding a way to act upon this wisdom to create real change in the world, whether that action means taking down a corrupt political elite or finding other unique ways to restore balance to the West.

We have the power to help millions more men. The extent of our success will lie in the logical strength of our arguments and their entertainment value as we reach out. These factors and the scope of coming censorship as well as our response to it will determine how far we go as a movement.

We must figure out how to take the wisdom that is flowing from our collective cup and use it to form collective decisions to change the world. This is the next step in the four-step process. We are three-quarters of the way there.

Garbage In, Garbage Out: Bringing Forth a Renaissance in Masculinity

devolution

The decline of masculinity is a fundamental problem associated with the Decline of the West

As a man ages he also becomes wiser. He looks back on the course of his life and where it has brought him, and of course recognizes the many mistakes he made along the way. When looking back over the course of his life, it’s hard for the newly minted Red Pill man not to lament and at the same time be disgusted by his Blue Pill days. But what made him Blue Pill?

More than anything else, the education system and the media are clearly to blame for the Blue Pill, suicidal tendencies of the West today. The education system instills weakness and submissiveness in men and the media instill fear, consumption, and collectivism. Well, that and a healthy dose of white guilt and pedestalization of the female.

These combined forces have turned modern men into weaklings that are easy prey for oppressive governments, as their countries are invaded by outside forces. For the crime of being male, they’re marginalized as “defectives” who don’t deserve to have a say in the effete, matriarchal society of today, the same society that no longer needs them except for their labor and tax money.

Effectively, the education system and media are brainwashing tools of the elite. However, as the education system molders (the value of the rubber stamp decreasing each time it stamps one) and the media are discredited by the Wisdom of Crowds via the Internet in the 21st century, men are going their own way and finally beginning to emerge out from under these combined dark forces.

education

Get ’em while they’re young: Young minds are easier to mold to state doctrine than older minds

Garbage In

From age 5 boys are put into classrooms with females and told to behave just like the nice little girls and not to be the mean little boys they want to be. At the same time, boys are told they have “privilege” because they have penises (further adding credence to the deployment of Freud’s Penis Envy theory in the public education system). Moreover, boys’ innate tendencies are suppressed rather than catered to. The Atlantic reports:

In the view that has prevailed in American education over the past decade, boys are resented, both as the unfairly privileged sex and as obstacles on the path to gender justice for girls. This perspective is promoted in schools of education, and many a teacher now feels that girls need and deserve special indemnifying consideration.

Indeed, boys (like men) in the West are seen as defective, and even evil, and school is geared towards making them more like girls (and women). Boys’ need to roughhouse, play, and explore are curbed by a system that makes children literally spend less time outdoors than prisoners, the same system that delivers heavy-handed punishments for even minor scrapes between adolescents.

In my father’s day, boys who had a problem with each other were sent to the gym, given boxing gloves and allowed to duke it out. Today, in a matriarchal society any problem boys have with each other is sublimated with David Van Driessen style techniques (the weakling, fairy of a teacher in Beavis and Butthead), forced under the surface until it boils over and what could have been a simple boxing match, and a hand shake at the end of it turns into violence.

Even though boys natural instincts have gotten to the point they’re now oppressed and even drugged out of them (Ritalin, etc.), and girls do better on standardized testing and go to college in larger numbers in a system that caters to them, as always in Anglo society, females are the victims and males are the evil oppressors.

The description of America’s teenage girls as silenced, tortured, and otherwise personally diminished was (and is) indeed dismaying. But no real evidence has ever been offered to support it. Certainly neither Gilligan nor the popular writers who followed her lead produced anything like solid empirical evidence, gathered according to the conventional protocols of social-science research.

So where did this twisted and totally baseless vision of America’s young men originate?How did political correctness – clearly geared towards making society more feminine -displace masculine critical thinking and rational analysis? The American Thinker traces its origins all the way back to The Frankfurt School over 75 years ago.

The Frankfurt School’s specialty was political correctness. The goal was to control social discourse on culture, politics, and economics and hush debate over middle-class moral decay. A critical tactic dictated by political correctness – demonizing people who question progressive wisdom – is illustrated by today’s Democrats and media calling tea-partiers racists and extremists for wanting to shrink government. The same kind of one-sided thought control renders schoolchildren captive to left-wing agendas.

Boys’ speech and even thinking are controlled by making them self-censor before they even open their mouths. This is the insidiousness of the public education system.

Parents have long known that something was wrong but have accepted the deterioration of children’s morality and common sense for the sake of the “tolerance” that progressive educators demand. The self-censorship inherent in political correctness has silenced parents for fear of being branded “intolerant,” “mean,” “overly judgmental,” or, heaven forbid, “conservative.”

Media brainwashing also begins at a very young age, which is why parents need to be vigilant about what and especially how much TV children watch. Based on my experience in the media, I would recommend ZERO television. It is the most effective brainwashing tool of all time. Even at the tender age of 6 months, babies can have brand logos and jingles implanted into their brains, and by age 2 they can be on their way to becoming a loyal Coca-Cola drinker for life via the much sought-after Holy Grail of branding.

Marketers plant the seeds of brand recognition in very young children, in the hopes that the seeds will grow into lifetime relationships. According to the Center for a New American Dream, babies as young as six months of age can form mental images of corporate logos and mascots. Brand loyalties can be established as early as age two, and by the time children head off to school most can recognize hundreds of brand logos.

Beyond branding, the media’s Marxist view of the world is also implanted into children’s minds via endless biased news reporting and shows from Hollywood and Disney which have hidden messages in them. Disney is particularly insidious with hidden sexual imagery in many of its shows. Worse, children watch wholesome childhood stars like Miley Cyrus “grow up” to become totally degenerate trash. This is not happening by accident, as social engineers know the power of role models.

Forty years ago, the character Howard Beale gave the world a premonition of what was to come in his epic monologue in the Academy Award winning film Network:

Listen to me!

Television is not the truth. Television is a goddamn amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business.

So if you want the truth, go to God. Go to your gurus. Go to yourselves, because that’s the only place you’re going to find any real truth. But, man, you’re never gonna get any truth from us. We’ll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We’ll tell you that Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker’s house. And no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don’t worry. Just look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he’s gonna win. We’ll tell you any shit you want to hear. We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true!

But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube. You eat like the tube. You raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness you maniacs! In God’s name you people are the real thing, WE are the illusion!

Failing to recognize the education system and media were putting garbage into young mens’ minds led to the garbage out results we have today.

salad

Propaganda about eliminating fat from the diet leads to numerous male health problems; men need more than leafy greens, we also need lots of meat

Garbage Out

The result of this and other numerous factors designed to weaken men and turn them into figurative geldings who ask permission instead of men who have agency include a dearth of masculinity. A weak population of manginas, misfits, metrosexuals, effiminate Beta boy office proles, and the like.

The education system and the media have taught men to eat garbage, including a feminizing diet (largely aimed on replacing fat in the diet based on shoddy science). Bold and Determined knows the cost of cutting fat out of the diet, beyond the obesity epidemic it has caused.

Give up the fatty foods that men need (absolutely need, not want) and replace it with bullshit like vegetables and cereals and grains and breads and, worst of all margarine and soy, and you get a nation of effete zombies. A diet like that is fit for women and women only.

jake

Making sex taboo is a goal of the NWO: It never occurs to most people Jake also could not consent using the logic of these posters

Beyond feminine diets, Anglo society has been attempting to desexualize people for the better part of a century. This has culminated in  ad campaigns like the “Jake and Josie Hooked Up” rape posters, in which Josie cannot consent when she’s drunk but Jake can (proving men are 1/8 human in the eyes of Anglo society) marginalize heterosexuality.

The truth is, the human species would probably be extinct without alcohol easing inhibitions between the sexes. What do men do? Instead of raising hell and demanding the pushers of this ad campaign be hung by their toenails (which is incidentally just one aspect of a coordinated effort at making straight sex itself taboo in America), men now “fap” to internet pornography rather than getting the real thing. Birth rates decline, satisfaction with life declines, and studies now show some men who masturbate frequently can’t get an erection when they have a real woman in front of them because the brain literally rewires itself to the new stimulus of Internet porn.

So, men now eat like women, and sex is becoming taboo. Worse, men are also becoming weaklings physically. David French at the National Review laments how weak, literally, American men have become due to lack of physical activity.

If you’re the average Millennial male, your dad is stronger than you are. In fact, you may not be stronger than the average Millennial female. The very idea of manual labor is alien to you, and even if you were asked to help, say, build a back porch, the task would exhaust you to the point of uselessness. Welcome to the new, post-masculine reality.

Men now shun blue-collar labor in favor of office jobs in which they become subjected to all sorts of social engineering schemes, designed to make them less than a man. So, now that we’ve touched on some aspects of garbage in, garbage out, where does this leave us?

refugees

Refugees are the new saints in the West

End Result: Decline

Men are becoming cucks and schmucks who are literally letting their nations be ransacked by invading hordes of immigrants who will NEVER assimilate to the culture of the West. Rape epidemics are occurring and being hidden across Europe. Crime waves are being conducted by government-protected classes. Whites are being told how evil they are, and accepting slavery propaganda without questioning it when in truth 96% of the slave trade went to Latin America and 1% of whites ever owned slaves in America. (The same 1% that now aims to enslave and control the entire world.) But, Latinos are never forced to have guilt about the sins of their ancestors.

America is literally being transformed into a despotism right before their very eyes and men stand around doing nothing to stop it, tranquilized by food and football-induced comas. Even the liberal rag Salon touched on the death of masculinity.

Men these days are a mere shadow of what we once were. We’ve become physically weaker than our ancestors. We’re slower runners. We can’t jump as high as we once did. As Peter McAllister, an archaeologist with the University of Western Australia and the author of the new book “Manthropology: The Science of Why the Modern Male Is Not the Man He Used to Be,” puts it, we might be the “sorriest cohort of masculine Homo sapiens to ever walk the planet.” I, for one, blame guyliner.

Sorriest cohort, indeed. But men aren’t to blame as much as the system that grooms them to be pushovers from the tender age of 5 when they’re forcefully removed from the home and put into government education camps. It then churns out effeminate corporate drones who meander through life, some of whom wake up at the age of 30 and 40, realizing what’s been done to them. Others never wake up at all. Very few take moves to end a system like this.

Bottom line: This shit has to stop. And it has to stop immediately. The West losing its men is one of the most suicidal of its array of suicidal tendencies. (Incidentally, turning men and women into the equivalent of sexless machinery with no humanity is a product of the West reaching out towards its Prime Symbol of infinity as decline sets in.)

The beginning of the end of this agenda of garbage in, garbage out begins with fundamental changes in the way society treats masculinity. Boys need educational programs geared towards them. We need to make our boys into strong men if we want the West to survive. The days of the feminized education system need to end, and they need to end immediately. Media either needs to be completely eliminated in our homes or totally reinvented.

Building strong men begins with recognizing the institutional problems in the West, those put there by social engineers who want control above all else. The next step is changing how those systems work, with the end goal of bringing forth a Renaissance in masculinity.

Society Has Awakened From The Collective Delusion Of The Television Age

Agent_Smith

The replacement of television with internet as the primary source of information means more Neos are awake than ever, and the Agent Smiths of the world are pissed

The dominance of television has obviously ended in the early 21st century. People still watch television, but they will never again believe it the way they used to. Television “news” and feel-good storytelling of the type that dominated from the 1940s through the 1990s has become laughable as the Information Age continues to destroy once dominant cultural myths. During this time, the media were able to create the illusion that powerful, elite interests were on our side even as they undermined the nation and laid the groundwork for today’s socialist revolution. They were able to shape beliefs and control all the information the mass mind got to see and hear.

Media-driven myths were hugely successful in keeping people blindly participating in a consumption economy and government tax farm system for half a century, while keeping them largely oblivious as to what was really happening in the world and their government. For 50 years the entire population was essentially mind-controlled by a medium that provided them with sugar-coated fantasies and half truths about reality, and nobody seriously questioned the fact that big business and the government had Americans’ best interests at heart. (Even if they did raise valid concerns, those concerns never entered the Overton Window of the mass mind.) Over this peculiar and interesting period in human history television’s effects of society followed to this ideal, paraphrasing theologian and social critic Reinhold Niebuhr:

Rationality belongs to the cool observer, but because of the stupidity of the average man, he follows not reason, but faith, and the naive faith requires necessary illusion and emotionally potent oversimplifications which are provided by the myth-maker to keep ordinary person on course.

In essence, a centralized communication model was able to delude the masses through mythmaking, putting them to sleep as they blindly put their faith in a “system” that would only be exposed as totally corrupt and amoral after communication shifted online. The 1976 classic Network perfectly describes the mass delusion the public was under when television was dominant through the fictional news anchor Howard Beale, for which Peter Finch won an Oscar.

But you people sit there, day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds… We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality, and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you! You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even think like the tube! This is mass madness, you maniacs! In God’s name, you people are the real thing! We are the illusion! So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off! Turn them off right in the middle of the sentence I’m speaking to you now! TURN THEM OFF…

Beale

Network (1976) depicts a madman news anchor trying to wake up the masses from the delusion of television

One need look no further than the top television shows of all time to see Niebuhr’s observations and Beale’s frustrations playing out in a business model that made the Big Three networks’ fortunes. In everything from dramas to sitcoms to the nightly news, the plot seldom deviates from the good guys come out on top, the bad guys ultimately lose, truth and justice win the day, the American way is the light of the world, and our politicians, while not infallible are the “good” guys. And, of course, women are virtuous and morally superior to men was another lesson drilled into the American mind, even as men descended back into legalized slavery in a country that pats itself on the back for abolishing slavery. People thought this way for 50 years.

As evidence of how taken in the public was with the media propaganda of the day, the following NBC News documentary takes us all the way back to 1993. In A Day At The Clinton White House, Tom Brokaw hosts an hour long, warm and fuzzy special on the first 100 days of Bill Clinton’s presidency. The sycophantic nature of the documentary is astounding by today’s standards—but in its day nobody batted an eye as to its legitimacy as a piece of “journalism.” However, even as this pablum showcasing Clinton as a demigod was broadcast and taken seriously by a credulous public, a new way of communicating was just beginning to show up in homes around the nation that would later destroy the power of the mythmakers to push propaganda like this down the throats of the masses.

Back in those days, the Internet was only in 10% of homes, and Brokaw makes a brief reference to it towards the end of his knob polishing session in the Clinton White House. But that humble invention would eventually destroy the centralized communication business model he was a part of as well as the dominance of corporate and government mind control in America and the world.

Just look back in awe as to what passed as legitimate reporting even as recently as the 1990s.

Waking Up

Even though one of today’s alternative media majors, Matt Drudge, got his start during the Clinton regime and the genesis of alternative narratives was underway, according to Gallup, trust in the media peaked in 1998 and 1999, the era of Clinton. Despite the fact people started using the Internet en masse in the 1990s, there wasn’t a lot of information challenging political and cultural narratives of the puppet masters in America at that time. People still tuned into and trusted television news and newspapers, and believed their government had good intentions, no matter if they were selling out American jobs via NAFTA, turning the White House into a “coke den” with mistresses running in and out of it according to Secret Service Agent Gary Byrne, and making shady deals with the Chinese.

But, the Clinton presidency would be the last to be able to fully leverage Big Media to control political and cultural narratives and keep the public in the dark about the reality of their political machinations. The end of trust in talking heads and network news was drawing near. Ironically, Howard Beale imploring the public to stop trusting everything they saw on television in 1976 has become reality 40 years later. That shift started in earnest during the Bush administration.

As Bush and his band of Neocons attempted to use their tried and true method of mythmaking to keep the military-industrial complex running in high gear, a major platform of his administration became selling a false narrative about weapons of mass destruction in order to invade Iraq.

The feat of creating myths in order to legitimize the war would have been easier to pull off in the Television Age, but unfortunately for politicians and their spinmeisters people were increasingly communicating online. Thanks to tireless work of bloggers and truth seekers, a mountain of evidence grew proving the Bush administration pushed the WMD narrative knowing they invented it out of whole cloth. As reported by Washington’s Blog:

Everyone knew the WMD claims were fake. For example, Tony Blair – the British Prime Minister – knew that Saddam possessed no WMDs. If America’s closest ally Britain knew, then the White House knew as well. And the number 2 Democrat in the Senate -who was on the Senate intelligence committee – admitted that the Senate intelligence committee knew before the war started that Bush’s public statements about Iraqi WMDs were false. If the committee knew, then the White House knew as well.

But we don’t even have to use logic to be able to conclude that the White House knew. Specifically, the former highest-ranking CIA officer in Europe says that Bush, Cheney and Rice were personally informed that Iraq had no WMDs in Fall 2002. Former Treasury Secretary O’Neil – who was a member of the National Security Council – said: In the 23 months I was there, I never saw anything that I would characterize as evidence of weapons of mass destruction.

The CIA warned the White House that claims about Iraq’s nuclear ambitions (using forged documents) were false, and yet the White House made those claims anyway.

The truth is much of the information exposing the WMD fraud would have never surfaced—and more importantly persisted—if people were not communicating online. The media performed their usual drive-by reporting and glazed over the issue, giving it a half-assed treatment, then another sensation came up and the WMD fraud fell into the talking heads’ memory hole. But, it was given new life by documentation and video people could call up years or decades later with just a few keystrokes. This type of information would have never been so easily available before. The exposure of the WMD fraud is perhaps the most important case of the internet causing a significant deviation from the “official” narrative as the Information Age replaced the Television Age.

So, why was the internet more important than the liberal media when it came to exposing the WMD fraud? Even though the media is 90% Democrat, one must realize “journalists” are typically intellectually lazy groupthinkers who do not challenge authority unless it becomes profitable for them to do so. The business runs on emotion as much as politics, which is why they grilled one of their own in the 90s with the Lewinsky scandal but glazed over a huge scandal that could have been much worse politically for Bush than the other scandals they tormented him with. The Intercept reported on the failure of the mainstream media to report on this issue properly in the article Twelve Years Later, US Media Still Can’t Get Iraqi WMD Story Right:

Thanks in part to the failure of centrist and liberal media to explain this clearly, it’s now cemented as an article of faith on much of the right that Iraq was concealing weapons of mass destruction.

Without the internet, its reasonable to believe the WMD narrative could have been much more successful in influencing public opinion to this day. We certainly wouldn’t be discussing it right now without the internet. The Bush administration nearly pulled the feat off anyway, despite the liberal press!

Second_Coming

Newsweek and other leftist media have openly worshipped Obama from day one

As Obama replaced Bush, trust in the media continued to wane. During the 2008 campaign, it became painfully obvious the media was in the tank for Obama, from Chris Matthews’ obsequious thrill running up my leg commentary to a complete and total failure to emphasize Obama’s connections to terrorists like Bill Ayers, his Muslim upbringing, his shady association with Mr. Goddamn America, Jeremiah Wright, and call into question his lack of any significant legislative or political successes while Illinois Senator. All these counter narratives only survived because of the internet. Perhaps more than any other event, the 2008 Presidential Election exposed the Marxist media in the minds of the American public as the leftist hacks they are.

During Obama’s 2008 campaign in which the media were least partially successful in turning him into the Messiah, two narratives—an “official” narrative pushed by mainstream media, and a popular narrative arising organically from free and open mass communication online—emerged and only grew further apart over two terms of a far left Obama presidency. The exposure of the mainstream media as nothing but propagandists who push Marxism instead of living up to their vaunted reputation as the Fourth Estate, horribly failing in their primary task of providing an unbiased account of events, was underway. From Obamacare to Fast and Furious to the latest fanning of the flames of racial division in the country, the “official” and popular narratives continue to grow farther apart.

The “official” and popular narratives have once again clashed in the 2016 Presidential campaign. The successful campaign of Donald Trump to with the GOP nomination would never have been possible in the days of centralized, one-size-fits-all communication. It’s obvious the leftist media seethed at Trump and hated him from day one, but it did not matter because they had so discredited themselves their narrative was not the only one people knew of or had to listen to. They could just turn off the TV, download a podcast, or read a blog to get a more factual version of events rather than having a talking head read them something from the New World Order script.

The elite despise the fact the masses have awakened from the mass delusions they were spinning. Rather than try to balance their reporting, mainstream outlets have doubled down on their Marxist narratives. Despite what elitists in the media will say, as Ernest Hemingway said: The truth has a certain ring to it. The old media regularly tries to discredit new media, and even insinuate the people who subscribe to the new media version of events are everything from idiots to racists for not swallowing suicidal leftist talking points.

One group of mainstream media executives even shamelessly told two whistle blowers embroiled in a legal suit for making them report false stories: We paid $3 billion for these stations. We’ll decide what the news is. Other possible media driven myths of the past 50 years, now being called into question by legitimate questions and facts include:

  • A worldwide ban on DDT based on the book Silent Spring is being challenged by authors, scientists, and even journalist John Stossel
  • A coming Ice Age pushed in the 1970s which encouraged countries to stop using fossil fuels failed to materialize
  • AIDS was supposed to become a heterosexual pandemic, it remains confined to homosexual risk groups and CDC’s own statistics say there is a nearly as low as a 1 in 10,000 chance of vaginal transmission through normal heterosexual intercourse—in other words more sex than some people have in a lifetime would be required to contract it this way
  • The ozone hole over Antarctica was going to fry the world, a hole a number of scientists are now saying has always been there because of the way rays from the sun produce ozone and that oceans produce more chlorine annually than man ever did
  • The coming global warming Armageddon is said to be caused by the gas that all life on earth needs to survive, CO2, and is only fixable by ludicrous tax on an element on the periodic table, carbon
  • The current Bee-pocalypse narrative says the world will starve to death unless the world eliminates certain pesticides and some suggestions call for eliminating microwave i.e. cellular and other forms of communication, while other sources are saying bee numbers were manipulated to create another problem out of whole cloth
  • The media continues to fudge gun statistics as pointed out last week with the fact gun homicides are at an all-time low while over half the public believes gun violence has increased
  • The media operate in a way that creates profit by stirring up racial problems and hysteria as evidenced by its BLM narratives and facts which directly contradict the narrative of “racist white cops” such as a police officer is 18 times more likely to be killed by a black suspect than vice versa

These worrisome stories are only the tip of the iceberg of possible media myths that have been perpetrated on the American public. No wonder the establishment is up in arms, they need citizens to be pliable sheep that listen to their dictates and buy their products. They definitely do not want a public capable of figuring out how much they’re being lied to, but the internet has yielded just that. George Carlin put it best:

You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls…They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

As proof the elite want to crush the popular narrative arising from the so-called unwashed masses the elite openly hate, a Harvard-educated propagandist, and son of a CEO James Traub of Foreign Policy magazine published It’s Time for the Elite to Rise Up Against the Ignorant Masses just last month, an article befitting a Mao or Hitler regime in that it openly calls for stripping the rights of voters to influence public policy.

Look for the two narratives to grow ever more disparate in the coming years and decades. The mainstream media will look increasingly disconnected from reality and ridiculous as they spew talking points from society’s puppet masters, while we the people talk amongst ourselves in a manner that produces a phenomenon seen in the book The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than the Few. Our version of reality may differ from that written by a small elite, but nonetheless an increasing number of people believe the “unwashed” and unvarnished truth over the elite’s sugar-coated myths. Importantly, the emergence of the popular narrative is credited with helping the Brexit movement successfully challenge an organizing Soviet…er…European Union.

That leaves us with this conclusion. The fantasies of the Television Age have been replaced with the harsh truths and nightmares of reality. It’s a cruel, corrupt, and often evil world we live in. The deal is, it always has been that way, even when we were collectively put to sleep and tranquilized by the mass delusion created by television. Where this new chapter in human history ends nobody knows, but the world will never be the same now that large numbers of people are awake, and they’re angry.

Gun Violence Cut In Half Despite Twice As Many People Owning Guns

Obama_Gun

Mr. Anti-Gun himself, Barack Obama, shooting a gun as part of a propaganda photo op in the 2012 campaign – illustrating how the media manipulates public perception. The move was intended to hush critics that said Obama would try to strip gun rights

If you listen to the hysterical mainstream media, you’ll walk away with the impression that something just has to be done about gun violence, rights of the peons be damned. Those rebel flag waving hicks and people who “cling to their guns and religion” – to quote Barack Hussein Obama – are going to have to bend the knee to the stripping of one of their most fundamental freedoms, the Second Amendment, so we can all live in a hypothetical, perfectly safe socialistic bubble, and more importantly, so people won’t have any defense against encroaching tyranny.

Sure, the American military has weapons beyond the wildest dreams of the simple gun owner, but the gun owners have strength in numbers. It’s hard to send people to government work camps when there are 357 million firearms in the nation—more guns than there are people. At the very least, all hell will break loose when government agents come around to round people up, if indeed that ever happened. It won’t be a neat and tidy transition to authoritarianism with a populace armed to the teeth.

Never is the fact mentioned by elites in the propagandist media that authoritarian governments from that of Mao Zedong to Hitler stripped their citizens of guns before instituting totalitarian governments that murdered millions, nor is the fact you have a near zero chance of dying in a mass shooting ever given the emphasis it deserves. Hitler knew the importance of disarming the citizenry before subjecting them.

The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.

Beyond the fact citizens are disarmed before they are subjected to centralized power, despite the genuflecting of countless empty headed talking heads, the fact is life is much more mundane than they would like it to be. You are far more likely to die when you go hop into your box on wheels sedan (that you are probably in debt bondage paying for) and make your way down to your corporate job. In fact, twice the number of people die every single day in automobile accidents than died in the “biggest mass shooting in history” in Orlando. Yet, we haven’t heard from the left about banning automobiles. (Yet, anyway. The global warming religion will push that agenda item at a later date.)

Here are things that really kill people in great numbers, but they don’t make for compelling video to suit a news director’s need to create drama so he, she or zhe (heh) can put asses in seats in front of the idiot box. Asses that your local propaganda outlet needs so desperately. You are more likely to die from falling out of a tree than you are at the hands of a mass murderer. Let’s look at things that kill more people than mass shooters:

  • Falling out of a tree: 100 deaths annually
  • Falling inside your home: 13,000 deaths annually
  • Suicide: 42,000 deaths annually
  • Kidney infections: 48,000 deaths annually
  • Stroke: 133,000 deaths annually
  • Cancer: 592,000 deaths annually
  • Heart disease: 614,000 deaths annually

The mass media also never bring up the fact that an increasing chorus of people, from Judge Napolitano to Steven Seagal are questioning the truthfulness of sensational news headlines the echo chamber foams at the mouth selling to a public that is, by and large, malleable and suggestive to thought control. Here are some bombshells that the media selectively avoided when they were trotting out their gun control narratives:

  • Judge Napolitano revealed that nobody died until 5:13 AM in the Orlando mass shooting—that is until the FBI and SWAT teams entered the Orlando gay club hours after the standoff began. This raises a number of questions that were never even brought up, let alone answered. Napolitano is apparently the only mainstream media personality who bothered to read the FBI’s report. He said: Here’s whats news in the summary, nobody died until 5:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered, prior to that no one had been killed. The 53 that were injured, and the 49 that were murdered all met their fates at the time of, and during, the police entry into the building. This is a bombshell revelation, readily available in the official FBI report.
  • Steven Seagal dropped this bomb on Russian television last fall: I believe that, and I hate to say this, a lot of these mass murders and all this funny stuff that’s going on, I believe a lot of this is engineered.

Beyond questioning the official narrative and conspiracy theories, even if you think people who question authority are nuts, the representation of of gun violence as increasing—as half the public thinks it is—reveals the power of the corporate press to distort facts and create false realities as Congress’ own statistics reveal. Gun crimes and gun violence have plummeted over the past 20 years, yet the public believes otherwise. As Einstein said: Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.

Mao

Communists ALWAYS go for the guns of the so-called “ignorant masses”

Gun Violence At Record Lows

Let’s look at some statistics. The number of guns per person has increased from 0.93 to 1.45 over the last 20 years. There are more guns than people in the United States. That is a whopping 56% increase in the number of guns over a generation. However, the gun homicide rate has tumbled 49% in that same time. The gun homicide rate has fallen from 7.0 to 3.6 deaths per 100,000 people. Gun homicides have been cut in half while the number of guns has more than doubled! This is exceptional news, but chances are you have never heard of it unless you read alternative media. This fact gun crime is down is coming straight from the horse’s mouth, the U.S. Government itself.

Despite the fact you are more likely to die of just about anything but guns in your lifetime, the fact gun violence is plummeting to record lows, and the fact people own more guns than ever proving there is no link between gun ownership and violence, politicians feel the need to take away the average citizen’s capability to defend against criminals and tyranny. This reveals the gun violence narrative is pushed by politicians and the media for a reasons other than those stated by our “social betters.”

  • Politicians and social engineers need to create a gun violence issue to continue the Hegelian dialectic: spin up a “gun control” problem, have a preplanned solution (i.e. gun confiscation) in place, and direct all “solutions” towards that goal.
  • The media makes their living and maintains their ivory tower by creating problems to create profit. There is nothing scarier to average people than the prospect of being mowed down by a nut with a gun, so the rational and responsible view that yes, mass shootings are an issue but do not deserve 24/7 attention is immediately discarded in favor of sensationalism. This also speaks to the lack of journalistic integrity to report on mass shootings but also to calm the public down with the fact that these are very isolated events and that gun violence overall is tumbling. They often excuse their hysteria with “human interest” in these bloody stories, pointing to the victims. This is nothing but exploitation of tragedy for profit and to push an agenda, as far more people die from other causes of death each and every day.
  • Creating “sitting ducks” by pushing gun-free zones all over the nation is another way guns and gun owners are marginalized. The government doesn’t need to ban the Second Amendment if they make the entire country a gun-free zone. Gun-free zones invite violence, as attackers know they’re more likely to inflict harm on defenseless sheep than armed wolves.

Beyond gun violence and gun homicides being at historical lows, there are other facts the puppet masters don’t want you to know.

Mexican gun bans mean law abiding citizens don’t have guns, but gangs sure as hell do

More Hidden Information

Let’s bust a couple more gun myths promulgated by the irresponsible and shameless mass media and look at a couple of important facts they ignore.

Myth: Children are at significant risk at school of being killed by a mass shooter. After Sandy Hook, an impressionable and irrational public immediately pushed for schools to be gun-free zones, and to turn schools into the equivalent of prisons for children. However, only a couple of generations ago the above scene at a Delaware high school played out after a threat was called into the high school. Students and teachers went to their cars to pull out their guns at the school, and no gunman ever showed up. My, how times have changed.

Additionally, more children die each year on bicycles, from space heater fires, and in drownings than from guns. But, we don’t hear calls for banning bicycles, heaters, and swimming pools because that doesn’t make for good TV or good politics. Also, liberal mothers kill more unborn children than guns each and every year through abortion, yet women go into a hissy fit if anyone talks about taking away their right to murder a defenseless, voiceless human being.

Myth: Crime is lower in countries that have banned guns. One need look no further than our neighbor Mexico, where guns are forbidden for the average citizen but every cartel and criminal has them. Many Mexican cities look like war zones and I personally witnessed two shootouts between the Mexican military and cartel members when I lived there. One has to think the gangs would not be as brazen if the average citizen had the capability to defend themselves. So, Mexico is an example of gun control nightmare. The CATO institute also dropped this truth bomb on gun grabbers.

In Israel and Switzerland, for example, a license to possess guns is available on demand to every law-abiding adult, and guns are easily obtainable in both nations. Both countries also allow widespread carrying of concealed firearms, and yet, admits Dr. Arthur Kellerman, one of the foremost medical advocates of gun control, Switzerland and Israel “have rates of homicide that are low despite rates of home firearm ownership that are at least as high as those in the United States.” A comparison of crime rates within Europe reveals no correlation between access to guns and crime.

Gun control disarms good people, as criminals will always find a way around laws.

Fact: SSRIs are strongly correlated with mass shootings. Eric Harris at Columbine, Seung Hui-Cho at Virginia Tech, James Holmes at Aurora, Christopher Harper Mercer in South Carolina, Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings pilot who killed 149 people, and Adam Lanza of Sandy Hook all were on high doses of SSRI anti-depressants. As Dr. Peter Breggin has warned, going to a psychiatrist has become one of the most dangerous things a person can do. Breggin also wrote this in his book Your Drug May Be Your Problem:

Advocates of psychiatric drugs often claim that the medications improve learning and the ability to benefit from psychotherapy, but the contrary is true. There are no drugs that improve mental function, self-understanding, or human relations. Any drug that affects mental processes does so by impairing them.

And more tellingly:

Despite a hugely successful promotional campaign by drug companies and biological psychiatry, the effectiveness of most or all psychiatric drugs remains difficult to demonstrate. The drugs often prove no more effective than sugar pills, or placebos – and to accomplish even these limited positive results, the clinical trials and data that they generate typically have to be statistically manipulated.

The effects of these drugs are chilling, and a large number of people become agitated and manic when they take them.

The newer antidepressants including Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, and Lexapro commonly cause some degree of over-stimulation. The effects are not unlike those of cocaine and amphetamine, and both the Prozac-like drugs and the stimulants impair function of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Some of the other newer antidepressants, including Effexor, Serzone, Cymbalta and Wellbutrin can have similar effects. No one knows the frequency of very severe reactions to the antidepressants. Some studies indicate that some degree of clinically significant over-stimulation and mania is caused in a startling 5%-10% of all patients taking these drugs. A number of clinical reports have also described a syndrome of obsessive SSRI-induced suicidality and violence that seems particular to these drugs.

Rather than calling for an investigation into pill-pushing prostitutes with medical degrees, as some doctors are, the media pushes a gun control agenda as the “magic bullet” that will fix everything. The correlation between SSRIs and mass shootings is never given proper attention because pharmaceutical advertising is a $5.17 billion dollar industry, and the media needs this revenue to prop up their sagging bottom lines.

Fact: Cops kill more people than mass shooters. The very people who are supposed to protect the public kill far more people than mass shooters. Statistically, you are 9 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a mass shooter. Are the cops acting in self defense most of the time? Probably. But there are also videos coming out by the truckload that show police are often acting inappropriately and an in abusive manner to the public they are supposed to protect and serve.

Last year alone cops killed 1,205 people. Were all those deaths justified? Most of them probably were. But how many people were killed that should not have been? Nobody is watching the watchers except for the web site Killed By Police, so nobody knows. Yet, the media never focus on this as they always push the public towards complete and total trust in authority, whether it be government bureaucrats or militarized police.

So, each of the gun grabbers’ arguments can be destroyed through some basic research and logic. The argument that people don’t need guns because there are police is the equivalent of saying people don’t need fire extinguishers because there are fire departments. By the time the police arrive in their average 10 minute response time, the criminal is already going to be gone. And your house is already likely to be burned down from a small kitchen fire that could have easily been extinguished.

Once again we defenders of freedom are making the colossal mistake of letting the Marxist left and media control the narrative, then playing defense against their narrative. Gentlemen, the time has come to push back against the left. We have to find some way to put them on the defense about their insane policies and beliefs. Every time they bring out a new agenda item, they push and push until we fall back. Sooner or later the line must the drawn, and the authoritarians shown we will not be pushed any farther. Making them defend their insane positions instead of libertarians and traditionalists defending their positions, as we are doing now, is the most important move we can make.
