Yep, I’m calling you out. No attacks though. I want to try to get through to you and show how you’re being manipulated and used by would be dictators in BOTH parties.
Kevin Sorbo put this best, so I’m going to borrow part of a post from Laura Venturini’s “It’s NOT for Your Own Good” post yesterday.
Everybody please WAKE UP!!
When the State tells you it’s safe to go to Home Depot to buy a sponge but dangerous to go and buy a flower and when the State shuts down millions of private businesses but doesn’t lay off a single government employee, it’s not about your health.
When the State prevents you from buying cucumber seeds because it’s dangerous, but allows in person lottery ticket sales and When the State tells you it’s dangerous to go golf or fish alone but they can get make up and hair done for 5 TV appearances, it’s not about your health.
When the state puts you IN jail for walking in a park with your child because it’s too dangerous but let’s criminals OUT of jail for their health and when the state tells you it’s dangerous to get treated by a doctor yet says a liquor stores essential it’s not about your health!
When the State lets you go to the grocery store or hardware store but is demanding mail-in voting, ITS NOT ABOUT YOUR HEALTH.
WAKE UP PEOPLE — If you think this is all about your health you’re mistaken! Please open your eyes! Stop being lead like blind sheep.Kevin Sorbo on Twitter
What some of you are creating, with your blind acceptance of everything the government tells you, is the pathway to a complete dictatorship.
The virus is real. Despite what the lamestream media is telling you, the vast majority of us on the other side accept that fact. We also accept it’s dangerous. We simply believe that social distancing, common sense and perhaps some masks and gloves are enough.
We also do NOT believe in throwing away the freedoms that people have fought and died for since the Magna Carta was signed in 1215. The security you’re offered in an illusion. Only chains await you and your children and your children’s children… All for the FALSE hope that the government will protect you from everything, including nature.
It took over 800 years to get personal freedom and civil rights to the point they’re at now. Before then, people were bound to the land, did what the gvernment told them, and lived or died at the whim of that same government.
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely
It’s a story that been told since the dawn of civilization. Shakespeare wrote about it in “The Winter’s Tale” and it’s been retold dozens of times. Even in comic books. Despots always either have noble intentions or fake them very well, but their actions always end up the same.
Take the case of “Injustice” in DC Comic Books. An alternate reality where Lois Lane was killed by Joker, and SUPERMAN of all people went off the deep end and became a fascistic dictator. Criminals and anyone he disagreed with were killed without a second thought… All “for the greater good”. Is THIS what you want?
This is how he later rationalized it all to his own cousin:
Sounds an awful lot like some of those folks who say they have everybody’s best interest at heart, BUT label anyone who questions them as dangerous, conspiracy nuts, fascists, selfish to the point of threatening not just others but civilization itself now, etc… doesn’t it?
Anybody see the irony and hypocrisy there yet? The violence doesn’t stop, it’s just aimed at people who disagree. How many times have you heard climate change deniers have no right to speak, or should be jailed? That they’re all just out to destroy the planet that we ALL live on? easier than finding out if they just question SOME of the facts and think there might be a better option to reach the same result right?
“You’ll either make the right choice, or I’ll make it for you…” Is that what you want for your family and friends? Technology isn’t TOO far from THAT point… Give it a decade.
Comic books have a knack for the grandiose and dramatic. Take away all the metahuman stuff and it’s REALLY not so different from what we’re facing now.
Think about it.
