POL How the Left Plans on Putting Boots on the Ground to Subdue Middle America

It was said during our Mideast military adventures, and has been considered a truism of war, that you can’t really win a conflict without “boots on the ground.” For it’s difficult to completely subdue a people from afar. It may not be too different with battles for civilization.
I stated in 2012, addressing a long-developing reality, that the culture war was over as the Left had achieved social dominance. “What is occurring now is a pacification effort,” I wrote — one designed to stamp out the “conservative” guerrilla-group diehards.

Other than its intensification, the only thing that has changed about this effort in the last decade is that it has a new name: “cancel culture.” With GoogTwitFace (Big Tech) having upped its bias and dropped its mask and corporate America joining academia, the media and entertainment on the Dark Side, these entities act as a malevolent monolith silencing dissident voices from Maine to Maui. But it would be naïve to think the Left, which craves power and wants total control, will be satisfied with its current soft authoritarianism.

This brings us to two developments that could cause the raising of eyebrows if not militias. Consider: If you heard about a Third World country in which the leadership was purging the military of political opponents, would you assume it was just an exercise in ideological nepotism? Or would you suppose the leaders wanted a military of devoted fellow travelers who would, when asked, unflinchingly turn their guns on domestic opponents of the regime who couldn’t be cowed via other methods?

Now, should the assumption be different just because the military purge occurs in a developed country?
Just such an event has been taking place in the U.S. for at least a decade. It began under Barack Obama, who not only tried to socially re-engineer the military but also engaged in a widely noted purge of top brass.

President Trump didn’t (couldn’t?) do enough to reverse this process, and now it has been kicked into high gear. Having largely corrupted the armed forces’ upper echelons, the Left now aims for rank-and-file ideological conformity. Thus do we hear about how we must stamp out the imaginary boogeyman du jour, “white supremacy,” from the military. Preposterously, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin even issued, in early February, 60-day stand-down order to address the alleged internal threat it poses.

Of course, white supremacists are about as common as straight, happily married women at a NOW convention; why, I’m well into middle age and I don’t know that I’ve ever met one. This isn’t to say there aren’t liberals delusional enough to believe the threat is real; that they’re detached from reality is partially why leftists are so dangerous.

Yet it’s clear there’s a different motivation among the Machiavellian leftists. It hasn’t escaped the Left’s notice that the military traditionally leaned Republican. Moreover, even if this has changed somewhat, having armed forces that are obedient to the ruling party to the point of wickedness isn’t possible with dissidents in the ranks. (Besides, “fragging” is a real thing.)

So you need a purge. You do this by conjuring up a boogeyman — in our case “white supremacy” — and then characterizing it as a widespread, existential threat. This now means defining Trump support, patriotism, opposition to illegal migration and, really, any deviation from the Left’s agenda at all as reflecting white supremacy.
It’s an old tactic: Portray already persecuted minorities or political opponents as the persecutors so you can leverage even more control over them. It’s how you create your own Enabling Act moment.

Pre-election polls showing that military members favored Joe Biden over Trump indicate how the armed forces have already been partially transformed (this is true even if the polls were manipulated, and some of what they reflect is general societal “leftward” drift). Yet controlling the military is only part of the equation. You must also own the other boots on the ground: the police.

As soon as the talk of dismantling/defunding/“re-imagining” law enforcement began last year, I pointed out that while much of the movement was driven by blind passion, there’s only one rational reason to want to nix the police. “Certain leftists want to eliminate the police,” I wrote June 7, “because they want to become the police.”

Power-mongers attack those whose power they crave. Leftists want centralized control over local police just as they now have control over the intelligence agencies. They especially want this because law enforcement is generally, it appears, even more conservative than the military (its members are older, for one thing).

In this vein, it hasn’t eluded leftists that certain sheriffs are engaging in nullification efforts, having vowed not to enforce some new anti-gun and/or COVID-related laws. Remember that sheriffs are elected by an area’s local population and, with most counties being conservative (Trump won 83 percent of counties, or about 2,600, in 2016), such nullification isn’t surprising; moreover, expect more resistance to radical leftism in a good portion of this 83 percent of the nation.

So while the Left is quickly gaining monolithic federal control by virtue of large population centers that vote (and steal votes) heavily for Democrats, controlling Middle America with its more patriotic police is a different matter.
That is, unless the Left can institute federal police. Ergo, the “re-imagining” of law enforcement.

Once your sheriff is an Antifa/BLM-sympathizing ideologue installed by D.C. (District of Communism) and hailing from 1,000 miles away — with no local community ties — he’ll happily “discipline” the white supremacists lurking around every corner.
If the Left can co-opt the military and police, it will have seized our country’s last two remaining (relatively) “conservative” institutions. It will also have what’s necessary to quash that impediment to total coast-to-coast hegemony: America’s framework and tradition of state and local control.

Leftists know that the Left-Right divide is intensifying and that more “conservative” states — such as Florida, South Dakota and South Carolina — are increasingly beating their own path. They know that increased nullification of federal dictates lies ahead (heck, leftists wrote the book on it with their violation of federal immigration and drug laws). And they know that as their philosophical soul mate Mao put it, “Power grows out the barrel of a gun.”

There’s no question that certain leftists have thought about using boots on the ground to conclude their pacification effort. Remember that Bill Clinton might have once said “I loathe the military” back when leftist protesters were calling Vietnam-era soldiers “baby killers” and that today’s socialist rabble spew venom at police. But they don’t in principle hate either institution.
And just as they’ve flipped from hating to liking the intelligence services because they now control them, so would they love the military and police — and use them with zeal — upon seizing them.

Also note that so-called “leftism” is not an ideology (how could it be? Its “principles” change continually). Rather, it currently represents movement toward moral disorder. And leftists are morally disordered people, the worst of them being vice-ridden, amoral and driven by base appetites such as power lust. As I wrote in “The Time for Talking with the Left is Long, Long Past,” perhaps the best way to prepare yourself for contending with them is to “pretend you’re dealing with Satan.”
Vanguard leftists are above nothing and beneath contempt. If you read the worst possible intentions into whatever they do, you won’t too often go wrong.

The only thing separating us from the tyranny is the fact we are armed. Never give that up. If you're going to die for something let it be something much larger than yourself. The nation or fellow man would be a good thing to spend your existence on. I don't care who's coming for my life and liberty. They're going to have to fight me for it.

I'm not so sure.
We've always had the guns and keep ceding ground and backing up.
All without any shots fired.

Have you surrendered anything to .gov yet? Me neither. Maybe the difference is I won't. No offense to you.
You apparently have no idea the colossal body of rights, Liberty, status and freedom LONG surrendered by society, right back to civil government.....and mere congressionally-granted privilege is all that is offered in return.....

I don’t fault you for that.

Today’s America is every bit as bad as the England we broke away from, for all the same reasons, + .

Well, you WERE there. Being Samuel Adams and all. I'll take this as a lesson. One can ALWAYS learn from others.

Getting close to the day when one will have to make a decision when the govt rep/agent or NGO operative contacts them. Because they are not going to leave and let someone be. What'll happen if they show up to vaccinate, or swab someone? What will happen if one who is White man is pulled over by black cops? There's no fair day in court with what is coming.

The quote below is so backwards and wrong it caused me to laugh so hard I damn near fell out of my chair, Trump was beloved by the boots on the ground grunts, they were turning their backs on Biden following the inauguration, no need for journalism just make the shit up as you go.

"Pre-election polls showing that military members favored Joe Biden over Trump indicate how the armed forces have already been partially transformed"

Drive the point home some more. I get it. I AM A SURRENDER MONKEY. NOTHING I CAN POST FROM THIS POINT FORWARD CAN BE CONSIDERED A DEFENSE. I. GET. IT. I WAS WRONG. I AM NOTHING BUT A SHEEP FOLLOWING THE HERD.
I greatly appreciate your honest and humble recognition of truth you missed before.

Not everyone has that humility.

Don’t take discouragement as a few succumb to temptation to rub in further, unnecessarily. :)

Now......what do we do about it ?

We all have the futures of our progeny, in the balance.
a most excellent question - yet its been asked and answered . . . we must become WE

ONE MORE TIME

NEVER FORGET

all WE have to do to stop their bullshit is to REFUSE IT
BUT

it must be refused EN MASSE

the "problem" we have with the above concept is really very simple. it lies in the definition of WE . . . you see "WE" means YOU and ME and US - every last one of "US" . . . and when the time comes for WE to become "US" . . . should you choose to "sit it out" shame on you.

you can tell me you don't want to fight. I will understand. you can tell me you don't want to kill. I will understand. but - when you tell me you can't refuse . . . BECAUSE . . .
I will NOT understand

They may bring a "sheriff from far away".
The deputies live in their county. In many rural areas I bet most people know at least one or two by name.

Incrementalism has a limit. See straw that broke the camel's back.

Our country AS A WHOLE, has tolerated the burn loot murder shenanigans the same way we have had long-suffering patience with poor goobermint.

While being personally clueless about a collective trigger, I feel sure we'll see it at some point in the near future.
Waiting for it anxiously defies common sense.

Everybody will get a chance to fish or cut bait.

I like BB guns. I grew up with a pump Daisy that I shared with my brother.
I currently have a Sheridan pump pellet gun, very powerful.

No one wants to get shot in the face with any type of projectile.

I also have firearms, but very small to large caliber.

It won't play out as the commies envision things.

Of that, you can be sure.

3 million LEO and .mil types.

20 million veterans, 75 million Trump voters.
Don't forget the huge number of old, intolerant, retired groundhog hunters that can keep their rounds in the palm of your hand at over 300 yards with no problem.

The fact is that any government, no matter where only ultimately rules through the consent or acquiescence of the governed. If the people are willing to pay the bill there will be change. Now whether that change is ultimately what they want is another discussion.

Depends on who they poled? If it is the upper rank desk warriors that osama did not remove they may very well support the socialist/communist party. If it was the soldiers who actually fight the wars I do not buy it.

I have a 17 cal air rifle where the projectile will completely pass through the body of a gopher which is 1.5 to 2 inches of meat. If a human is hit, it should do the same and a good shot could penetrate a vital organ. Point being they are dangerous, but I'd never consider using it in a self defense situation, unless that's all I had.
