Free speech is only permitted in designated zones now in the 'Stain
Sounds like a really bad dystopian science fiction story. It isn't.
Tonight I was watching Stephen Colbert with my son and we listened to a politician trying to help legalize cockfighting in the U.S. as an officially recognised sport. I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. One of the things that has always distinguished the U.S. from backward, barbaric nations is cockfighting. I guess since all those people have immigrated, they might as well make the sport legal.
I flipped through a couple channels after it was over, just idly looking to see if anything was on I could stomach to watch but it was …
… gaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriagegay marriage gaymarriagegaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriage gaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriage gaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriage gaymarriagegaymarriagegaymarriage …
… on every channel. Some channels were running dramas or cop shows or reality shows, it didn't matter, somehow the subject of all of them managed to get steered around to gaymarriage or gay concerns or gaybies or gay families or coming out or gay courage in the face of oppression or gaymarriage.
I mean … everything. Saturation. I tried to turn it to some neutral programming but within seconds it came up in somebody's speech or dialogue. Apparently, it is the only subject on earth as far as the people who own and craft television content are concerned. Right now, anyway. Probably in ten years it will be bestiality or marriage rights for men and farm animals. That is the next "frontier" after this one.
On one channel, some guy accused of polygamy in the Mormon church was explaining that if gay marriage was going to be legal then it is ridiculous to try to enforce monogamy. They were all catcalling him and telling him that was absurd but of course it wasn't. It was completely reasonable and next logical social bulwark that will collapse, obviously. After that, all the floodgates will open.
Something will give soon. It won't go on like this much longer. Then it will get really ugly. Time to open those FEMA camps and some state law enforcement will probably be their first inmates.
The decay that Rome took 150+ years to experience slowly has been traversed by the 'Stain inside of a single decade. Somebody is in a real hurry to tie up the loose ends.
Remember all those promises about globalism introducing a world of prosperity and plenty? All lies. Every word of it. Centralized economic management doesn't work. The world had freer trade in the 1900's than it has ever had in the past century. The only responsibility of the government is to enforce contracts and punish embezzlers, thieves and crooks. When they got rid of the Glass-Steagall act in 1998 and the other western countries followed, they threw open the barn door to international finance to literally steal the Western world blind. They took everything and their losses were paid off by the governments themselves. Insane. Makes cockfighting look fairly rational in comparison. The governments themselves have been the biggest enablers of organised crime, opening their own bank vaults to their predations.
Last person out of Western civilisation remember to check that the pilot is off and the lights are out.
