Huh, well where does that play on the ten stages?
So, where are we on the other stages? Here are my thoughts:
- Classification (people divided into us and them) – Any nightly news, most every news conference and most movies and TV shows do their level best to draw a certain part of the population as “others” who need to be corrected, cajoled, harassed and moved out of the mainstream.
- Symbolization (people are forced to identify themselves as members of the “othered” group ) – VAX Passports are an attempt to do this. To be honest some of us being “othered” for removal from society do a pretty good job of identifying ourselves; MAGA hats, Let’s Go Brandon (LGB) or FJB swag, not to mention anything patriotic, or supporting law enforcement does the trick.
- Discrimination (systematic discrimination) – Yup, those not in lock step with the current powers that be are targeted by government agencies such as the IRS, OSHA, or the EPA. Support the wrong candidate or donate to the defense of a young many who crossed the woke mob and you lose your job. Espouse the wrong opinions and financial institutions will refuse to loan you money or provide banking services. The list goes on and on…
- Dehumanization (people associate with vermin or disease) – Another yup. Refuse to be a VAX guinea pig and you are a super-spreader responsible for the deaths of those who are VAXed. Listed to the terms used by the media and leftist politicians to describe conservative, patriotic Americans. “Bitter clingers” was the start, “deplorables” made it worse and it has gone downhill since. Domestic terrorist seems to be the current favorite.
- Organization (the government creates special groups to enforce policy) – See today’s headline posted above.
- Polarization (government propaganda against the group) – Again, yup
- Preparation (official actions to remove people) – Not yet, thank God.
- Persecution (beginning of murders, theft of property trial massacres) – How many conservatives have been murdered by the left and their supporters over the last few years? A dozen? More? Does it matter if a conservatives property is destroyed?
- Extermination – Not yet…
- Denial (government denies it committed the crime) – Not applicable at this time
The bottom line is that the groundwork is being laid. The “othering” has begun and if we were not so well armed we would be loading into boxcars already.
So, what do you think? Am I being too sensitive and exaggerating where we stand compared to the list? Sound off in the comments section below.
Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!
God bless and God save the Republic.
