A “Mask Off” Week for The System

1,412 words

Joe Biden has only been president for a little over a week, but the system is already emboldened to bare its ugly face. It now persecutes political enemies for memes, imposes a permanent military occupation in the capital, shuts off the markets to populist forces, and replaces popular symbols of the historic American nation with hideous images of multicultural America.

Only the blind can’t see the system for what it is now. Liberal elites feel comfortable revealing their true selves to the public — will this finally lead the public to wake up?

The first sign of the system baring itself was the military occupation of Washington D.C. The most popular president in United States history was inaugurated under the watch of 26,000 troops and no ordinary civilians. Soldiers locked down the city, blocked off streets, and wandered around like their nation’s capital was Baghdad’s Green Zone. Some lawmakers even proposed crew-manned machine guns be placed on the Capitol — all because of hysteria surrounding January 6. Thousands of troops are staying in DC for the foreseeable future and authorities plan to erect a permanent fence around the Capitol. The sacred temple of democracy apparently needs to tell the people they’re not welcome.

DC’s liberal residents greeted their military occupiers as liberators from the MAGA menace. They provided free food, hugs, and much adoration to the slovenly National Guardsmen who patrolled the deserted streets. Not one threat was encountered during inauguration week, but it didn’t matter. It was about sending a message to Middle America: “We have the military on our side; you don’t.”

The authorities plan to keep us in a continual heightened state of alert. The Department of Homeland Security issued a suspicious bulletin warning of an increased “threat level” for the next couple months. It warned that “ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.” Thus, we need to keep on our lookout for “domestic terrorists” who object to our 100% free and fair government. The point is to inflame mass hysteria and befuddle people into thinking Right-wingers are the biggest threat to the country. We must always remember the enemy in our midst.

The military itself plans to purge the enemy within its ranks. The new defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, pledged to rid the armed forces of “racists and extremists,” saying we can’t fight when “those enemies lie within our own ranks.” The message is drilled home again: “We have the military on our side; you don’t.”

The system also wants to make sure you don’t see great Americans on their money anymore. The Biden administration announced it would accelerate the process to get alleged Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman on the twenty-dollar bill. She would replace Andrew Jackson. “It’s important that our notes, our money . . . reflect the history and diversity of our country and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

Tubman is a more suitable figure for the regime. She’s a strong black woman who stuck it to evil white racists. Her legend says she freed hundreds of slaves and even led military raids on the Confederates. Meanwhile, Jackson owned slaves and removed Indians from their lands. Why would we keep a white racist on the twenty when we could have a badass black woman? That’s the question the sleepwalkers among us may ask as they proudly celebrate a grim-faced black on their favorite dollar bill.

Tubman’s legend is mostly exaggeration. She did not command a military raid and she at most freed 70 slaves, nearly all of whom were relatives. The only sources for her life are her own testimony, which may have been impacted by a severe mental condition that resembled some form of narcolepsy. Whether her story is true or not doesn’t matter. Millions of school kids learn the legend and refuse to disbelieve it. It also reaffirms the liberal delusions that individual blacks contributed significantly to the development of America. In the eyes of the brainwashed masses, Tubman is more important than Jackson. Random blacks matter more than great whites.

You can buy Greg Johnson’s Here’s the Thing here.

While the Treasury Department planned to change our money, a populist revolt sought to take back the people’s money from corrupt hedge funds. The GameStop Reddit revolt shook Wall Street with the simple technique of retail investors banding together to take on the big dogs — and they nearly won. But then the system brought down the hammer. Discord banned r/wallstreetbets, an organizing force behind the revolt, for “hate speech.” Nearly every trading platform barred users from buying stocks targeted by the revolt. Wall Street and politicians demanded criminal investigations into the trading and promised severe consequences for the peasants. One of those demanding punishment of the peasants is alleged populist Elizabeth Warren, who demanded regulators to zealously pursue the GameStop traders.

The Reddit-driven stock trades were a hit with the masses, however. Various celebrities and political commentators lent their support to the populist surge. It may be nothing more than a harmless prank and not a serious threat to the system. But the system is treating it as such and is changing the rules to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Many traders want stock talk banned from social media — only they can discuss it among themselves.

The system encourages people to invest in the stock market, but on its terms. It doesn’t want the people to manipulate the markets; that’s the job of the hedge funds. Even though the vast majority of Americans were on the side of the Redditors, the system sided with the hedge funds. Elites may boast of free markets, but they’re only free to those with access and power. The little guy just needs to take the scaps he’s given.

The next indignity imposed on us by this system was the arrest of Ricky Vaughn. Readers may remember Vaughn for his great work during the 2016 election that made him one of the most influential posters on Twitter. The FBI arrested him this week for his memes — literally. Vaughn — real name Douglass Mackey — stands accused of election interference for memes that jokingly advised Hillary Clinton supporters to vote by text. Those who texted the number would receive a message that they had not voted. It was certainly not election interference. Unfortunately, the federal government can decide what is and is not election interference. So they can persecute political enemies for memes. Mackey faces up to 10 years in jail if he’s convicted. Even if he wins this case, his life is irreparably damaged by it.

One is not allowed to question the legitimacy of the 2020 election on YouTube, but you can make skepticism of the 2016 election into the basis of a federal criminal investigation. Vaughn’s prosecution is just the beginning of the feds criminalizing dissent. You already can’t have access to social media as a Dissident Right-winger — now you may not have access to the world outside your jail cell.

At the same time the federal government arrested a dissident for memes, they let off one of their own with a slap on the wrist. Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith avoided jail time this week in receiving a generous one-year probation for falsifying information that inspired the Russia hoax. Clinesmith passed along false information to a FISA court to authorize surveillance of Trump adviser Carter Page. That probe destroyed Page’s life, nearly upended an elected president, and inspired a mass wave of Russian hysteria. But the court decided Clinesmith didn’t deserve prison, unlike the many Capitol protesters who can’t even make bail.

Only the delusional can’t recognize the corrupt system we live under. The Biden administration wants to ramp up dispossession as quickly as possible. We must dispense with any illusions about the country we live in. The American regime sees us as its enemies and no longer has to bother with democratic pretenses.

    “We must dispense with any illusions about the country we live in. The American regime sees us as its enemies and no longer has to bother with democratic pretenses” – This important point must be shouted from the rooftops to American Whites. The federal government even under Trump has made it clear that they view Whites – especially the conservative ones – as their enemies whom they must racially and culturally displace. It’s so obvious now that only the most woefully ignorant and intellectually dishonest dare to say otherwise.

    The old America has died, and even then its leaders made horrifically foolish decisions which made our current predicament inevitable. There is no reason to be patriotic anymore. There is no reason to send our young people to serve in its military, especially when it intends to send them to fight proxy wars on behalf of ‘our greatest ally,’ Israel. There is no reason to boast any longer of our ‘free speech’ rights. There is nothing to be proud of unless, of course, one is proud of our nation’s track record of bending over to Jewish power and influence.

    White Americans have good reasons to turn their backs on this once great nation. Our hope cannot be anchored to this alleged ‘shining city on a hill’ or whatever nonsense people claim about it.

    Think about this: This nation permits millions of abortions, partial birth abortions, and now even after-birth abortions (yes, I know many of those aborted would have turned out to be murderous negro thugs but, tragically, many White babies have been aborted too). This nation engages in endless middle eastern proxy wars on behalf of the Chosenites, compels its citizens to pay exorbitant taxes which funds illegal immigrants and the least productive of our society, erects a public school system(s) to teach our children to hate their race and their own history, and promotes and celebrates the most deviant and morally filthy people such as Transgenders. It willfully neuters its own police officers so that BLM and Antifa run wild in the streets destroying businesses and harming countless people (mostly Whites).

    The nation has become a freak parade, and we are all expected to smile approvingly of it. And if you dare to openly reject any of the propaganda you’re fed daily, the government will find ways to unperson and de-platform you. Your employment will be jeopardized. You will be seen as a ‘insurrectionist’ and worthy of imprisonment. The courts will not protect you either because they too have been paid off. Most judges are too cowardly to rule against the current order and its nefarious agenda.

    My recommendation is to remove the American flag or at least turn it upside down. Refuse to say the pledge of allegiance. Turn your back on the American flag whenever it is paraded in your face. And tell as many people as you can why Whites must no longer support this monstrous and wicked government of the United States of America. At every point mock it, and make sure to teach your children and grandchildren the truth about the current state of affairs and what has happened to us historically in the West.

    After all, you didn’t leave the USA, it left you and that a long time ago.

      I dropped my registration in the Republican party on Jan. 20 as a symbolic gesture, letting the party know as best I could that I can’t and won’t support them, since they did not support Trump. If a decent candidate appears for mid-term election, I am free to ‘register’ on the day of the vote, elect the decent Republican candidate for house and /or senate, then un-register again a few weeks later. This will, I hope, let the Republicans know their numbers are dwindling, and they better wonder why ‘former Republicans’ are leaving the party. In the intervening next 4 years, read all of Counter Currents’ books, if you haven’t already and read as much European and American History as possible to be able to argue your points cohesively. I haven’t done much searching for other sites, mainly because my eyes can’t take all that screen time, but also because I have found most of my info here. But we really ought to know what is happening with European Nationalists as well.

      The civic nationalists are very stubborn. Deep down they know we are right about race, but they have been psychologically conditioned to deny their own eyes and their own experiences. They may never “get it” (consider, for example, South Africa) until they have to fight for scarce resources… then they will “get it”.

        I watched an older movie the other night called Blood Diamond. I am encouraging people to watch it and see how the Africans treat their own in that movie. I was surprised it was portrayed so realistically (it has some Hollyweird stuff in there about the African “hero”). It seems that really is our future. The future is bleak the future is black.

      So this article is great, as matter of fact it is so well written/argued that I can’t really say anything more about it.

      No, America hasn’t left White Americans because White Americans are America. Plain and simple. And as for the Pledge of Allegiance and the Flag: they are symbols of our people and shouldn’t be disregarded. Yes, we should totally revolt against the present regime. I recommend supporting every secessionist group in the USA. Get into these groups, and start promoting articles here written at Counter Currents, among other places. Even join your local GOP and support America First candidates. There is too many people who approve of our vision deep down in the GOP to ignore it.

      Secession groups:

        “No, America hasn’t left White Americans because White Americans are America”- While it is true that White Americans are the true founding stock Americans since our Founders did not conceive of any other racial group as the Americans they had in mind, the nation they founded has indeed left us – or better, has been murdered by a million treasonous cuts. In fact, the rot had already started to set in once those infamous words were penned that ‘All men are created equal.’

        Sadly, once the Confederacy was defeated (which more faithfully represented the thinking of our original Founders), and President Lincoln failed to convince Black leaders that they should repatriate to Liberia knowing full well that Blacks and Whites could never really coexist in any truly harmonious way, it was just matter of time before this once great republic would start to crumble. Big government and its burdening bureaucracy would inevitable overwhelm the kind of America that our Founders envisioned. The problem was further exacerbated with the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Acts and the 1965 Immigration Act which was tantamount to hitting a colossal iceberg and guaranteeing the sinking of this nation. The nation is now a cesspool of everything that is deviant, freakish and debauched.

        It is in this sense, that the USA has left White Americans. There is no sense in holding on to a corpse, no matter how grand one may consider it to be. The old vision of what America could become and the posterity it was intended for is nothing more than dust in the wind. We must look beyond America now, and begin to have a broader vision of what we can create for our people.

        “And as for the Pledge of Allegiance and the Flag: they are symbols of our people and shouldn’t be disregarded” – No, they are not “symbols of our people.” They are symbols of a nation that no longer represents us, and that looks upon our people with contempt. Each and every consecutive administration since WW2 has sought in its own way to racially and culturally displace us, some more than others. It now makes no bones about its intent to racially and culturally displace us from our own land. Even under the most ‘conservative’ administration (whether Reagan’s or Trump’s), the illegal alien invasion was never quashed and no genuine effort was made to reduce our displacement. This is not the sort of government I will ever again pledge allegiance to. Half the nation has gone insane, and almost every congress critter except a small handful stands ready to declare anyone who is pro-White a ‘domestic terrorist.’

        We must turn our backs on America. Yes, we must be tactful with those Whites who are still sympathetic and patriotic to it. Yes, we must not seek to deliberately offend those who have not yet arrived at a racial consciousness. But in our hearts, we must see the USA for what it is, for what it has become, and not the romantic vision of a bygone era that promises to never return.

    “The GameStop Reddit revolt shook Wall Street with the simple technique of retail investors banding together to take on the big dogs — and they nearly won.”

    Considering it closed at $327 today, that’s not “nearly winning,” it IS a win.
    Check this out, we’ve got bankers crying and throwing their chairs.
    Also from a redpilling standpoint, the establishment wants to call r/WSB antisemites (and also /biz/ but they really are).

    The Wall Street crowd are all interconnected in a giant smoke and mirrors fraud perpetuated on the common folk. If one domino fall they could all fall.

    Most interesting is how the progressive Left stands exposed as toothless (at best) or actively colluding with Wall Street (at worst). Liz Warren demands that the SEC investigate the Redditors. Bernie posts meaningless Tweets about taxing hedge funds (taxing them only encourages their behavior). Meanwhile, AOC is chin deep in “Mean Girls” office drama, trying to get Congressmen thrown out of office.

    If you’re an intelligent, earnest white Leftist, you need to look elsewhere for a political movement that can truly challenge the system.

      2 RECOMMENDATIONS: You Tube watch Stephen Kotkin Videos on Stalin…especially the ones on his book titled Stalin: Waiting for Hitler. Buy a hard back copy as the digital versions can be altered. This is something to pass down to your family for generations. So start with the videos as they are very very good. He has dedicated much of his life to the study and writing of this topic. Then find the book wherever you prefer to buy and the vids will get you primed while the book arrives.

      Additional book is “The Gulag Archeplago.”

    When one considers the circumstances that created the American, German, Russian and Chinese revolutions (4 successful ones in the sense that the old order was swept away and the revolutionists won), the current USA seems an awfully long way from anything similar. Decades, if not centuries, of outright repression? Hyper inflation? Economic collapse? Catastrophic defeat in a major war?

    None of the prerequisites seem to be present yet, I’m sad to say.

    “Only the blind can’t see the system for what it is now. ”

    That’s not true. Only people who read alternative sites such as this one are aware of the system. I also read and post to some non-political hobby sites. Recently these sites did open a political thread to allow users to comment about the extrodinary events associated with the riot at the Capitol.

    A number of users there quotes a NYT article which stated that after Trump, the “right wing complaints about the system” whould die down and fade out. There WAS NO AUTHENTIC right-wing movement, it was all the simple -minded and gullible being stirred up by Trump.

    The people articulating these ideas appeared very educated, wrote well and were very reasoned and logical. Their flaw was that they were completely unacquainted with identitarian viewpoints regarding IQ, criminality, white dispossesion, Black behavior, or any of the other points we complain about on sites like CC.

    Thus it appears that the vast majority of white america is still asleep as to whats going on.

    For all the crowing about the capitol being attacked ‘for the first time since 1812’, it should be noted that part of the reason Washington was burned because in 1813, American forces invaded York, Ontario (now Toronto), and burned it to the ground, after 1700 Americans overwhelmed a determined force of 900 British, Canadians, and Indians.

    By and large, the Americans barely put up a fight compared to the defense of York.

    Many Canadians applauded the burning of Washington, and Admiral Cockburn, the British commander, had a newspaper office torched because the paper wrote highly unflattering things about him; no defender of the first amendment, he. Wonder if that will be catching.
