90 Miles From Tyranny : Welcome to the American Gulag

Welcome to the American Gulag












Our new leftist wardens are here.


Reagan’s demand that Gorbachev tear down the Berlin Wall imprisoning millions of East Berliners, was actually a metaphor for dismantling the “walls” around political, cultural and religious expression that held millions captive in satellite states obedient to the Soviet Empire.

So too with the gulag. Apart from the brick-and-mortar archipelago of gulags for political prisoners exposed by Solzhenitsyn, the Soviet Empire itself was a massive prison for millions who never knew the freedoms many Americans take for granted.

The wall, the gulag, and the empire were inescapable physical reminders that the mind, body and soul of the individual were irrelevant. Free will to create and think for oneself was squelched by the State. Morality was dictated by the State. Independent thought challenging Soviet dogma was subversive and duly punished.

In contemporary America, where the walls are closing in on the individual—obliterating traditional notions of freedom—we find ourselves crossing the threshold into an American-style gulag, where the fortifications that have shored up a centuries-long quest for a more perfect union, are beginning to buckle.

Although the constriction of our liberties on the road to socialism accelerated at warp speed with COVID, the George Floyd riots, and now the election of Biden-Harris, it didn’t happen overnight.

The ‘60s Hippies begat seismic cultural revolution and domestic terrorist groups. After sobering up and landing corporate and government jobs, their Yuppie “political correctness” nipped away at civil society and the status quo for decades. PC infractions garnered scorn and ostracization, mitigated only by injecting euphemism and PC language into our vocabulary.

In 2011, Occupy Wall Street pitted the 1 percent against the 99 percent, with squatters “eating the rich” and rioting for decolonization and against free markets.

But it was the 2014 Ferguson riots that ushered in a more virulent strain of BLM-inspired PC called “wokeness,” focused primarily on race and gender. Punishment was personalized with protests outside private residences, and pressure on private and public institutions for mandatory diversity training and...

If you are going to fight the coming tyranny be smart enough to target the right people. Bezos, Soros, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Pinchai, Gates, ect... all of the editors of TV news. Find the CEO's of who finances the organizations that fund BLM, Antifa ect. Target all of these people, until they have a reason to fear they will keep removing your constitutional rights until you have none. You are in a hot war, it is time you realized it.
