Threats

14-appomattox-statue

I am now receiving draft comments that are threats to take action against me if I do not desist from resisting treasonous election fraud.  To all of these I say, go f**k yourselves.  pl

    The Road Not Taken
    BY ROBERT FROST
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;
    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,
    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    The Second Coming – Yeats
    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.
    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    Already 200 years ago, Percy Shelly forecast what will happen to these people:
    Ozymandias
    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    Another ass wrote to me today advising me that I should consider if I am simply wrong, and repent I suppose. This reminds of what Oliver Cromwell supposedly said to Charles I. “I beseech you sir, in the bowels of Christ to think you may be wrong.” I have considered the possibility, and I am not wrong.

    Repent? I hope you quoted Capt. Brittles at them.
    In any case, you are not wrong and even if you were, it is high time the words “voting” and “machine” were separated for good.

  14. Avatar sova says:

    Of course you are not wrong and they know it as well as you do! I add my voice to yours and remind us all that a place of healthy reason (as oposed to their reasoning) is now needed more than ever. I will double my contribution!
    Please go on!!

    Credible threats, yes, but I suspect that you have considerable support, of the resolute type, in dealing with them.

  19. Avatar ked says:

    of all people, Col, you know how over-wrought characters spew about, threatening violence upon those w/ whom they violently disagree. I wouldn’t give them much credence, & I’m sure you hold a decent defensive position in any case.

    I think it has been a major problem that the belief in the efficacy of propaganda, and censorship, which seems to have become characteristic of very large elements of Western élites, reflects the curious intellectual ‘provincialism’ endemic among them.
    A 1921 essay by the great French historian Marc Bloch, entitled ‘Reflections of a Historian on the False News of the War’, informed by his own very varied military experiences in the conflict just ended, as well as wide reading, is very illuminating on the ways that attempts to control the ‘narrative’ can ‘backfire.’
    One observations that may be relevant to today:
    ‘The role of censorship was considerable. Not only did it gag and paralyze the press during all the years of the war. Its intervention, suspected even when it had not occurred, never ceased to render unbelievable in the eyes of the public even the true reports that it allowed to leak through. As one humorist well put it, “The opinion prevailed in the trenches that anything could be true except what was allowed in print.”’
    (See http://www.miwsr.com/2013-051.aspx )
    A great deal of the history of the collapse of the Soviet system can, I think, be explained in these terms. (So, unfortunately, can very much of that of subsequent Russian disillusion with the West.)
    An extraordinary feature of today’s ‘MSM’, on both sides of the Atlantic, is that there appears little need to ‘gag and paralyze’ them by censorship.
    They have proved quite happy to do their utmost to suppress serious discussion, both about ‘Russiagate’ and now about vote-rigging, without the least hint of a threat of sanctions against them.
    Part of the reason for this may well be that a very significant proportion of their fellow-countrymen are as resistant to evidence that challenges their beliefs as the journalists involved are.
    The price that institutions like ‘CNN’ and ‘The New York Times’, will pay, however, is that those ‘on the other side of the fence’, who also represent a significant proportion of their fellow-countrymen, are likely from now on to disbelieve everything they say, even if they are telling the truth.

    What hangs in balance this election – a deep and profound readout – it is either this or it is that: https://redstate.com/stu-in-sd/2020/11/24/election-aftermath-either-or-n284228
    Think this cannot happen?
    Just look what happened to California since the year 2000 – a bipartisan state fell under an iron lock by “progressive” super-majorities that cannot now be dislodged. In twenty years, they built themselves into the system, along with Dominion voting systems.
    It happened. I was there, in the middle of it. I watched it all go down as “election reform” from term limits to finally mandatory mail in ballots and vote harvesting.
    The irony is Gov Schwarzenegger was elected in a recall election when it was becoming obvious what was happening .He promised to go to Sacramento and “blow up the little boxes” of special interests that were worming their way into the system (the public sector unions).
    Except just the opposite happened, Schwarznegger became a RINO and handed everything over to the unions and the state fell into immediate decline. That as always my biggest fear about Trump – that he would become a Schwarzenegger RINO. But Trump did not, and for that he earned my undying devotion. Promises made; promises kept – the Trump legacy.
    I suspect Dems will appoint Schwarzenegger as Ambassador to Austria in grateful appreciation.

    We are watching the history of Russia – From Peter the Great to Gorbachov – Great Lectures series. It is chilling to see the parallels in 19th Century Russia through the Revolution and what is happening today in the US.
    Controlling speech was critical. It took decades to learn how many people died under Stalin and even know they cannot ascertain the numbers, but it was in the millions.
    Then in three generations is was over – the revolutionary elites protected their own and their own protected nothing, other than themselves. Society stratified yet again even under the iron fist of communism, just like it always has since the Sumerians.
    Freedom of speech is fundamental – as history teaches us over and over again. We are in dark times, but this is when the Black Swan also shows up.

    Col.,
    I think you have put together a regigment worthy of taking on the lefty propagandists, which is why they now resort to threats of violence.

    Please keep up the good work, and if you ever get to California, I will threaten you to a beer.

    I would recommend Psalm 112. I was raised with the KJV of the Bible, but the meaning should be the same in all versions.
    The righteous will be blessed and the wicked will be punished.
    I read your blog because all the others that are currently running don’t give me a sense that I am reading the thoughts of “righteous” people. They are mostly partisan thinkers and writers.

    In a short, terse, perhaps over-simplistic response to your admonition: “AIRBORNE”!

  29. Avatar Seward says:

    Comment on Deap’s post: Very minor historical factoid, but the total Soviet executions during the Stalin era, 1921-1953, have been summarized from Soviet top-secret archives, and published. They total 1.2 million, almost 700,000 of them in 1937-38, what Russians call the Yezhoschina. (Yezhov was head of the NKVD then. He was replaced by Beria in November 1938, and the executions stopped abruptly.) With some difficulty (I’ve done it before), I can get you links to the formerly top-secret archival records, and you can add them up yourself. (I was interested in executions during the collectivization: They abruptly jumped from 2 or 3 thousand a year to 20 thousand.) They are of course a small fraction of the 5 to 10 million asserted by Robert Conquest (hired by MI-6 to write his book), and copied by Solzhenytsin [otherwise wholly admirable]. For a very unlikely open source, see National Geographic, December 2016, page 95, first column.

    As of today, this is still America. Free speech. What a concept.
    Got your six, Sir.

  31. Avatar JerseyJeffersonian says:

    Seward,
    Maybe these figures you cite are correct; but remember that keeping the sordid realities close to the vest is an old, old trick with radically authoritarian regimes. Keeping more than a certain number out of “official” records is far less dangerous to the security of these authoritarians. It limits the damage that leakage of the true numbers from loose lips within the regime that might otherwise, were the actual extent of the oppression and outright murder to be known, might provoke resistance from those to whom no hope remained. Terrorized people will tolerate a lot, but if they feel themselves to have nothing further to lose, they sometimes rise up.
    And besides the number of actual state-sanctioned executions there might be, reflect upon the aggregate accumulation of deaths of despair (alcoholism in the SU was a major problem) and how these add to the death count in that society.
    We’re seeing it here in the USA, only here it is denominated as The White Death; i.e., early deaths of white citizens, whose jobs have been given away to other nations so that the Wall Streeters and ghouls such as Romney can make huge bank through this ploy, and increasingly through these workers’ replacement right here via H1B’s and the like.
    How do they die? Through drug and alcohol abuse, certainly; but also because their health plans were taken away, and they cannot afford the costs of consistent monitoring of their health status any longer, and additionally, absent these plans the cost of medicine makes it out of reach even when they have an actionable diagnosis and known regimen of drugs to address their issues. People can, and do, die of broken hearts and broken minds, too.
    So, don’t come here lamenting poor, poor Josef Stalin’s besmirched reputation, please. Any state-mandated murders, or pervasive oppression on the basis of ideological justifications should earn that regime a bad reputation. Amd even now, Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib are agitating for similar tendencies to be established here. Do you have a problem with that, or not?

  32. Avatar Deap says:

    Seward: active executions and forced labor starvation, esp in Ukraine I believe is where hard to tally death numbers come from. I too have heard no one can now know for sure, so one has to deal with a wide range of numbers – . Just like Mao’s Red China – starved them to death through forced labor is still dead at the hands of the state.
    Certainly the starvation and deprivation hardships Russia faced during WWII simply stagger our western comfort mindsets too. Take away co-morbid “covid” deaths which drops numbers down to maybe 10K, (CDC) and it is obvious we are made of far less sterner stuff when it comes to sacrifice and death in this country.
    Our parents grew up losing at least one sibling. We grew up losing childhood friends. Science marches on to new expectations about death and dying. Would not trade the good old days on that account; but this mortality rejection is wearing thin now too –
    ……..if doing XYZ saves just one life ….. it is worth it. Maybe, maybe not. But such is the measurement we appear to be using today. This is a new measurement, compared to only a few decades ago when death did stalk with more regularity. Even old people died back then.

  37. Avatar Diana L Croissant says:

    All the threats are just the ramblings of persons who are afraid you are right and who then feel the need to spew all the propaganda they’ve heard and read in order to drown out the little soft voices or their own consciences.

    On enumerating the deaths caused by Communist regimes,
    there is a book claiming to address that:
    “The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression” by Stéphane Courtois
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Book_of_Communism
    Concerning striking parallels between
    the Bolshevik attacks on Czarist Russia
    and the ongoing attacks on / “deconstruction” of traditional America,
    I think the work (“Russophobia”) by Igor R. Shafarevich https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igor_Shafarevich ,
    contained in the following, is quite informative:
