Fourth of July Weekend
While we should be celebrating our freedom, we are fighting to preserve it.
I don’t have any flashing red lights about violence, but please stay aware this weekend. One of the most heartbreaking strategies fascists always employ is to radicalize people through a deceptive form of “patriotism” and sadly the Fourth of July is always a potential target.
We’ve all seen this perversion of nationalism — the American flags with “Q” or Trump’s orange face defiling them; the Twitter accounts called Patriot1776DigitalSoldier or whatever.
We’ve also all heard the term “white nationalist” which is a euphemism for neo-nazi for a reason. Here’s neo-nazi incel Nick Fuentes who leads an “America First” cult that grew out of an “ironically” racist 4chan movement.
He’s being very clear in his message today which is celebrating “SCOTUS decision striking down ALL GOVERNMENT POWER.” This is the same concept as Steve Bannon’s desire to bring down “the administrative state.” It is not about America, it’s about anarchy to set the stage for theocracy.
So while Fuentes wants to destroy the nation, he also believes he is the “TOP Nationalist in the WORLD.”
Of course, the master of using nationalism to brainwash people into attacking their own nation, is Mike Flynn aka “Q” who planned the operation to attack the Capitol and decapitate the government on 1/6.
Here are his posts leading into the July 4th weekend.
The below is Flynn’s psyop in a nutshell. He intentionally conflates his project to overthrow our democracy with the American Revolution which we fought to gain democracy.
“1776” is a simply a euphemism for white nationalist violence.
Flynn also posted this video, which is an old rich white guy singing the praises of the Founders who signed the Declaration of Independence, not because they helped create America but because they were old rich white guys. He goes through several signatures and bemoans the fact that after the Revolution they had less money and property.
This is propaganda designed to justify putting a bunch of old rich white guys in charge of a “second American Revolution” to overthrow our government and put a theocracy in place.
And finally Flynn just posted this propaganda from the anti-CCP, Russia aligned, Epoch Times that gives Flynn, who took the Fifth Amendment when asked about the peaceful transition of power, a bullhorn to promote the idea that America needs to be taken over. And he’s offering himself as the “leader” of the project.
While I use my freedom of speech to criticize the government when I think its warranted, I am fundamentally patriotic. I care about America, not for some symbolic reason, but because I helped bring three brand new citizens to this country — who are now young adults — and I refuse to allow them to be forced to raise their families in Mike Flynn’s fascist theocracy.
For all of its flaws, America still leads the world. We are faced with two paths down which we can lead it. We can submit to the operation to destroy our freedom and rights, or we can do everything in our power to preserve our independence from tyranny.
Happy Fourth of July friends and fellow patriots. Have fun. Stay safe. We got this.
