The next step in the battle against wrongthink

So, they’ve successfully defined membership in various patriotic, America first organizations like the Oathkeepers, Proud Boys and Three Percenters (and, illogically have even included the Patriot Guard Riders, which makes absolutely ZERO sense if you know anything about what the Patriot Guard Riders do or why they were formed) as “domestic terrorist” organizations.

They’re working on purging the military of politically unreliable troops…”politically unreliable” being defined as anyone that leans to the right or has ever expressed the sentiment that they will not obey illegal/unconstitutional orders.

The next step is to root out the insurgents in the weeds. The ones who aren’t publicly members of the horrible domestic terrorist organizations mentioned above. How better to do that than to scour the internet for wrongthink.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is now getting ready to hire public companies, individual contractors outside government, to scour public data and social media in order to provide information for the new “domestic terror watch lists.”

I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m going to be on one of those watch lists soon. Of course, I have to travel for work, so being on a list that prevents me from flying will get me fired, but that’s a small price to pay to save the nation from my evil thoughts isn’t it?

I mean, my beliefs that the government should work FOR the people, not the other way around, that people should be free to do whatever the heck they want as long as it isn’t depriving anyone else of their rights, that it isn’t the government’s job to take care of me – or to tell me what to do, etc etc etc are obviously an existential threat to the American way of life, right?

I suppose I could delete my blog right now and try to fade back into the weeds…but that’s what they want. That’s the whole point: to shut us up, keep us silent and prevent us from spreading wrongthink willy nilly throughout the country.

Besides, it wouldn’t do any good anyway. The Internet is forever.

  1. Well, I can understand the Ds wanting to hang some of those groups. After all, some of those groups swear to uphold the oaths they took. Doing that, upholding sworn oaths, runs counter to everything the Ds hold dear and true.

  2. Thanks and welcome aboard. Feel free to chime in with comments (even critical ones) any time.

    I used to have a pretty good stable of regular readers and we had some interesting conversations over the years. I went on a blogging hiatus for several years and most of my readers wandered way. Now that I’m back at it, I hope to rebuild a small community and welcome the conversation. I encourage you to comment when you disagree with me as much as when you agree. Challenging my assumptions and opinions keeps me honest and thinking and if I can’t defend my position in the face of disagreement, perhaps I need to rethink that position.

    Anyway, as I said, welcome aboard and thanks for reading and commenting.
