Note the right side (category) -- this is a guest post, again from Ishmael.
“Embrace your extremists.” --Vox Day
Shooting a bunch of kids is something only a monster would do!
“Before this is all over, they’ll be building statues to St. Breivik.” --paraphrased Vox Day
Two years ago, the thought of shooting any children was awful. Anyone who didn’t immediately disavow such was jumped on by a shocked audience. Now after nineteen months of clown world abuse, talk of BBQing entire families elicits grim smiles, dread, and resignation along with the shock.
No one has made any medical “expert” the guest of honor at Sunday dinner. No one has firebombed a politician’s house. No one has shot a hospital administrator’s wife while she walks the dog. I hope we never come to that point in America, that is what a civil war looks like.
The only way to prevent politicians from getting regularly BBQed is to embrace the current extremists. The ones that cuss about coof bull**** in public and make others uncomfortable. The people who refuse to wear masks and make a huge stink about it. The terminated employee who sabotages the company on his way out.
Not so bad compared to living through a civil war.
If you don’t want to join in, embrace an extremist by staying out of their way. Don’t tone police someone who says something distasteful which furthers your side’s goals. Clap when someone screams, “**** you and **** your mask ****,” in a quiet shop. I’d say smile, but your face is hidden.
Don’t give a half ass apology about language used in a blog post or video when you’re sharing it. The apology says you don’t really believe what you just shared. If you really want to win, who the **** cares about proper language?
Is this fight worth winning?
“We didn’t love freedom enough.” --Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago
Read the whole quote. A few supported extremists, and Solzhenitsyn would have never written The Gulag Archipelago.
Extremists save your ass if you let them. Ponder this: What comes after? What if words are ignored and action comes? Is that a world you want to live in?
