Concerning the Parler/MeWe rapture going on:

I'm thinking the left should leave them be and let them build their little ultimate echo chamber so that, with no common enemy to rally against, they will start to turn on each other.

That did NOT work so well for 8Chan. That's how you get El Paso.

In all seriousness, we should probably be abusing the fucking shit out of Parler and its moderators. I think it's the perfect set for the next Operation: Mindfuck. We need to make their disinformation so flimsy that it collapses before it gets out, and we need to steal views away from the real stuff.

Of course, there should also be a REAL Left Wing presence dishing dissenting views as well.

Plenty of people have been successful at claiming to be QAnon/Pro-Trump, and then changing Group Names after thousands of people had joined. Other Lefties in some groups are spreading peaceful messages that still echo the Trump rhetoric of EVERYTHING IS A LIE, I WON BY A LOT to try and reduce the boil to a simmer.

There really are a lot of options, but Discordian ones that make Right-Wingers think they're 2Moderate2Chill with our l337 QAnon Group that's been owning libs since the days of Phr34king and Aqua-Boxing the FBI while simultaneously feeding them Marxist propaganda sounds like the most fun.

I don't really have the patience for a chamber of ignorant hate. It's lacking since all the shit I've been put through trying to accept them.

I dont really have a well established theoretical perspective about these things but, such ideological postures are just a variation of defense mechanisms.

And defense mechanisms act upon what they perceive to be dangerous threats, regardless of their true relation to reality.

So unless you can manage to bunker-bust their irrational fears, you are not accomplishing ANYTHING.

Parler bans left-wing accounts anyway. For all their "free speech" talk it's a literal safe space, a hugbox for the far-right.

In fact, they can terminate accounts for any reason (or none at all) at any given time, and will very likely do so against accounts that buck the conservative sentiment of the moment. If nothing else, it reminds me of r/The_Donald - there are no standards, and anything which disagrees with the current trends, even if from a "conservative" POV will result in your removal.

All I'm hearing is that the FUN option is the ONLY option, and that we should feel encouraged to lie at every opportunity...

The basis of Conservative politics is over-simplification of Topics and ideas to the point that it takes less energy to accept the summarization than it does to refute it.

A Time Bomb is an idea such as this that has been crafted in such a way that it appears to be difficult to refute to someone who already leans toward similar ideas, but that is not only easily refutable, but so completely transparent to anyone with a working brain that the reaction someone gets for bringing it up elsewhere is pure :lulz:. If it's filled with enough holes, we should have people on our side responding in agreement with justifications that are just as flimsy. Any responses that question the idea should be laughed at and treated as undercover Antifa.

A Trojan Horse is an argument that has been crafted to appear as Right-Wing as it gets because of its radical, rebellious nature, but that is likely a direct quote from Marx, Engels, or whoever. Noam Chomsky shat on the media for his entire life, and there's a lot of anti-media sentiment going around on the Right, so it would be easy as fuck to slip in some of his quotes as well. If we get enough of them solidifying Healthy* rebellious thoughts in their minds, we can slowly replace their talking points with ones the Far Left can agree with.

Meanwhile, I'll be doing Community Outreach in Ohio to see if I can bridge Rural Ohioans with the Far Left over key issues like guns and Term Limits. I already have Right-Winger friends who voted for Trump telling me they're no longer interested in politics, and are cool with having civil discussions again. I'm going to take advantage of this by harvesting Rural/Agricultural Policy suggestions from their friends and family to feed to Far-Left and Democratic political groups in the area. If we can steal back portions of Rural Ohio over topics we agree on, that's one more State to the Presidency, more districts to the House, and more seats to the Senate. And I think that's possible by feeding Socialist Agriculture Reform to Rural Ohio, since the Republicans and Democrats are both notorious for ignoring Agricultural Policy every year.

Hey look, open treason from sec state!

Quote

“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

When pressed on whether he and his department are preparing to hand over power to President-elect Biden and his team, Pompeo, who at times grew irritated at the questions, made it clear he didn’t see the contest as having concluded. At one point, he referred to the importance of counting “every legal vote” — phrasing other Trump allies have used to suggest without evidence that widespread voter fraud helped Biden.

You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Tbh for the most part its just delusion and denial... although i agree that its also preliminar setup for the possibility of armed revolt if they get any chance at doing it effectively.

I want to share a quote from a friend at this point, because I think it gets to the essence of this wierd moment:

Quote
Before the election I thought that was going to be the playbook.

But it seems that DJT simply cannot focus enough to run that game. He would have to say They Betrayed Democracy, but he does not care about democracy so it just comes out as They Tried To Cheat Me, which is not the same.

I was relieved when Fox News refused to play along. It seemed to me that they and the Republicans saw this as a fight that DJT would likely lose, and gambling on that was too dangerous for them; backing T personally to the hilt leaves them compromised if T loses.

But I misjudged the cowardice of the Republican Party. Most Republican electeds are trying to ride out this interval without either throwing fully behind Trump OR conceding to Biden.

And while Team Trump ARE fully playing along with Maximum Leader, they cannot lead from below, which means they cannot set up the They Betrayed Democracy story from their end; it has to come from the man himself. Nor does it seem that all the brownshirts out there itching for a fight have the ability to act decisively and get ahead of the President.

But this weird in-between state cannot last forever. Somebody is going to make a move and we are going to be all the way in the churn.

I do wonder if Biden's getting assassinated before he takes up office.

Bookies had odds of about 1000/1 of Harris being next president. I threw 2 quid on it. The chances of an 80odd year old guy dying in the next 2 months seems very much in the realms of the possible.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

So is anyone else shitting themselves over the whole Trump installing loyalists in the DoD/DoJ thing that's happening?

I mean, we're officially in classic Coup (Right out of USA's playbook) territory, right? That whole "The military will remove Trump if it needs to" thing is starting to feel less and less likely...

Also, in all seriousness (Dear FBI, this is a joke.), wouldn't all of this stop if someone gave him the Lincoln during one of his Hamberders?

I've been hoping for a while that one of his generals would just snap his neck. I mean, I didn't have much hope that would happen, but it's a nice thought.

Proud Boys are taking off their "Definitely not a Nazi" mask.

Time to arm yourselves. Shit's getting real. They won't be the only ones to take off the mask this week. This will empower the other militant groups.

Not sure if I should make anything of it just yet, but I've been noticing more gunshots out here in the country in the last few days.

One of my neighbors must have blown through forty bucks (current prices) worth of ammo yesterday.
