The Conspiracy Theory?
Where and what is the Conspiracy theory regurgitated by the far and alt-right, really?
I liken it to this: If a man/woman is caught, red handed, with a knife in his/her hand, a body is laying on the ground – lifeless and the assumed killer stands above him/her saying “It’s a Conspiracy! I’m innocent” – then he/she is taking into custody and tests are taken (DNA), matching of fingerprints and blood type, wound marks, documents are provided that he/she purchased and owned the weapon (knife) in question, had motive (discovered during questioning), the stabbing was witnessed by 5 different people, who all stated that there was no one else on the scene, other than the victim and the assailant.
When a person (or persons) has committed a crime – it’s easy to state ‘Conspiracy’ – but it’s the facts that are unearthed that prove right or wrongdoing. When all of the facts point in one direction to an obvious crime (or many), one has to question: Where’s the conspiracy? The crime has been committed and the facts are coming from the assailant’s own files, words and deeds.
If the above crime was witnessed, in your own neighborhood, would you call the facts as you saw them or would you join in with the assailant to say ‘Conspiracy!’ ? Would you say ‘I never liked the victim he/she had it coming!’ or would you be appalled and shocked, but then wait for the facts to prove innocence or guilt?
I just read that the vile Marjorie Taylor Greene got a rally to boo House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband after he was hospitalized in the violent home attack by a tRump supporter. What if it were YOUR husband, wife or child? Would you say “It’s okay – the crowd can boo, because they….feel like it.” Have so many just become this apathetic to the human condition?
That is exactly what is happening in our country and we are all the victims to the previous regime’s tyranny, violence, graft and greed – and the GOP’s ‘killing & slashing’ of rights and democracy.
Maybe we ARE in a nation that just looks away from crime and corruption, looks away from our justice system, implies ‘faith’, where there is none, has no regard for the actual Constitution (other than cherry picked portions that will serve an agenda) or a unified democratic nation to justify their allegiance to the real monsters – ‘Demi-Gods’ – that they have created. And for what? What is their gain? Seriously – What is their gain?
God help our Nation this November 8th. Please VOTE BLUE… for our generations and the generations to come.
Remember the bully on the playground?
Remember the bully on the playground that had his/her ‘rat-pack’ behind them, always obeying each command – mostly because they were afraid of being beaten up too – or they had simply found a similar mean soul, or souls, to align with?
Remember the cliques in Jr. and Sr. high – that if you were unfortunate enough to get on their ‘wrong side’, the vicious rumors they would create would spread like wildfire throughout the school? No matter if they were false or groundless, they stuck.
Multiply this by a trillion and we have Social Media today.
The mean guys never ‘go away’ – they just multiply like roaches as they align throughout the world. They don’t grow up, or get their hands slapped back – they don’t have to. They fit.
And the cliques that ‘Ruled the School’ and the vicious rumor mills? They’ve all shifted into the Corporate and Political world as we know it today. They’ve grown up and now rule over the bullies as well.
There was a time when the Higher echelon didn’t associate with the low-brow bullies – it didn’t look good to business nor political spheres – but here we are in 2022:
The power hungry elites are manipulating and controlling the low brow bullies (and the bullies don’t even recognize it), and when they no longer have any use, they will be tossed aside – as all cliques toss aside those that are ‘beneath’ them. Have them at dinner or lunch at the estate? Not on your life.
And what are we left with?: The cliques. Not just your garden variety High School clique – but a very malignant force governing our country, our freedom, our liberty.
And remember that we didn’t associate ‘Political sides’ with the bullies and cliques in the day – we simply recognized the vile and corrupt entities that they were. They weren’t Voted onto their self made pedestals; they simply grabbed them and ran with it. The only purpose of their existence was/is to make others feel bad, powerless and scared…..or less than.
They called the kids Nerds, back in the day. They’d be given this moniker for a myriad of reasons:
Through a faith affiliation, or being exceptionally smart, or poor, or non-athletic, or shy, or unattractive.
God forbid if they had an actual disability or handicap. It’s obviously not so different today – but instead of being whispered about, behind their backs – social media has offered a billboard to plaster, smear, threaten and humiliate on a grand scale…..and that doesn’t take into account the face to face encounters of everyday living. It can be hell on Earth for these kids. Most of us have encountered it, to some degree – large or small.
But it’s not Hell on Earth for the bullies and cliques. They get a pass on the damage they’ve created.
So we have the spectrum: The youth that are bullied, the Millennials that try hard to ‘put it past them’ and build a life for their families and in business, and the older adult – who bears the scars – but is supposedly wiser for the years and told it was the past, move on. Well, since the 2016 election no one gets to move on, not without a fight. Laws have been shot down that allow for better mental health care, social security, overall school funding for elevated programs and education including the addressing of bullying, reproductive rights, religious freedom (to chose which if any we care to affiliate with or be governed by), equality, police safety, environment, gun violence and control….the list goes on and on. This isn’t just a grocery list, folks, these are a Living breathing List of Human rights under our Constitution being slaughtered.
The bullies and cliques are back and in full swing. But this time we DO have a VOTE on who remains on the self made pedestals.
And if I’m being too subtle here let me make myself perfectly clear: The GOP, tRump, the Right-Wing members of SCOTUS and the Senate ARE the Cliques and the bullies are: the Right-Wing, White Supremacists’ and radical semi-automatic gun toting war mongers.
And THIS is not High School, folks.
This is your very freedom and democracy at stake, and there will be no ‘getting over it’ if we don’t VOTE BLUE all the way. Mic Drop.
