Name That Tune

words to get re-elected by

“We must always be skeptical of those who want conformity and control, Even in free nations, we see alarming signs and new challenges to liberty.”

“A small number of social media platforms are acquiring immense power, over what we can see and over what we are allowed to say,”

“A permanent political class is openly disdainful, dismissive and defiant of the will of the people. A faceless bureaucracy operates in secret and weakens democratic rule. Media and academic institutions push flat-out assaults on our histories, traditions and values.”

You said a mouthful there, brother.

    Turns out The Running Man was a documentary the whole time.

    No, don’t let social media silence your words. Let the minions in NYC’s government do it instead. Last night I read the news that calling some illegal alien an illegal alien there can get you fined a quarter million bucks.

    So, absolute restraint on the 1st Amendment. How is it that, not only do these rulings come out, that they get accepted and approved? How is it that the people who do this aren’t fired on the spot, or arrested, or just shunned for their anti-American audacity?

    And it’s more than just words. According to ADL, the OK hand sign is now officially racist. So even your gestures are “socially illegal”. And all of this because people are so foolish that they got trolled by 4chan, and blindly accepted this crap verbatim. There are damn few actual white supremacists, and until this falseness showed up, they never used the gesture.

    Dishonorable Mention goes to the Major League Soccer, who just ruled that the “Iron Front” flag used by antifa is fine, but the Betsy Ross flag is bad, racist, and too controversial. Iron Front was originally WWII resistance anti-Nazi symbol, but to see that used by the violent fascists of “ann tee fa” (as the TV news insists on calling anti-fa, to obscure their hypocrisy) is abhorrent inversion.

    So it’s words, gestures, and symbols. And it’s far larger than just social media.

    Well ^^^that^^^ seems to be a very good reason to use the gesture constantly [while flying the Ross Flag] and if someone objects, let loose with your best Alinsky Rule 5 – “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

    Invoking Rule 6 – “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

    I’d enJOY the hell outta that
