Their Trojan Horse is Inside Our Gates: A comment by Dan Patterson

Dan Patterson: “That was a very clear observation on human nature – we humans can either find the root of the problem and address it, or a conveniently associated noun or verb and address that instead. One attraction to attacking the scapegoat instead of the root is the poorly positioned sources for representation if they exist at all. Any support for the assigned enemy is quickly shouted down and if not subdued is placed in the camp of, not just an opposing view but the enemy itself. Just ask anyone objecting to the Iraq war and occupation, or a male supporting the protection of the unborn.

“And it happens on a personal playing field as well as a national one. Get in a discussion with a close friend or intimate about a subject you two do not agree on; instead of a rational and logical point-counter-point does the discussion devolve into the heated broad-stroke assignment of “camps” or “(X)-wing talking points”? If you’re lucky the opponent will decide you are not worthy of wasting their time and toss the playing board to the ground and strut arrogantly away. My experience is exactly that most of the time, so it is less damaging to retreat and disengage.

“It is that retreat and disengagement that is the trouble, I suppose. Doing that gives ground and moves the front lines closer to the enemy’s objective. And it is that point at which I disagree with the learned author of this piece: Yes it is likely the normies will be whipped into a lather to vent their spleens at a foreign throne, but that is less effective now than in the past. The Ukraine mess, for example, is far too grey to fall into the narrative; too many crimes from Uke and some justification from the Russkies. The Myth of the Noble Savage, too, is long in the tooth, and stirring additional outrage about this tribe against that one because of unjust modern oppression does not pass the smoke test.

“The people like me who once backed away must now speak, and clearly. The enemy is not a scapegoat but a trojan horse. The enemy bent on our destruction, and making extraordinary gains toward our extinction, is our own government, local, state, and national. The enemy.

“Read the Constitution and founding documents, diaries, newspapers, and pamphlets of the late 1700s and up to the mid-1800s. There is a clear direction for independent thought and action, and clear protections against scapegoats created to distract and deflect. If that sounds too much like either the Russian Revolution against the Czars or the American Revolution against The Crown, so be it.”

    Many of us have never backed away and have no intention. We, as a nation, have been Blessed and Protected by our Heavenly Father. I want my grandchildren to have the same opportunities that I had and my grown children had. I was born poor, have less education than most who read this blog and can say that has never stopped me. Everyday begin with a prayer to our Heavenly Father in our Savior’s Name, a prayer of thankfulness for being born in America–and then full steam ahead.

    So far most of us have been lucky because we haven’t been targeted yet. By living where we do we are necessarily in the big net but the net is being made smaller all the time. Eventually all the little fish will feel the squeeze. Wait til gas is $10 a gallon, you won’t be going anywhere, trapped in your crib. Then money will be digitized and you will narrow your purchasing to stay under the wire. Taxes will rise and new taxes levied so that just living is painful. Food will become expensive and scarce. You’ll frequently long for burgers on the grill but will settle for gov’t baloney on white bread. The internet will be throttled and monitored and thus unattractive. TV will be wall to wall negro’s and unattractive as well. Medical facilities will become very difficult. Assisted suicide will be popular. Little by little the noose will keep getting tighter. Your home will become your prison so you better make it as nice as you can. A place where you can stay the rest of your life and die in your bed.

    Think not? You think all those things will take a long time to implement? Look how much has changed over the past 2 years. The past 20 years, since 911. Life is like a roll of shitpaper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes. And you end up in the shitter….

    • Dirk August 8, 2022, 1:05 PM

      A roll of toilet paper! Very clever Ghost, Ima use that one in the future!

  • Dirk August 8, 2022, 1:04 PM

    Ok!, I’ll bite, how exactly are you going to address this issue, these issues?
    1, Voting.
    2, Demonstrating.
    3, Join the blog daddies, and talk em to death?
    4, Grow a long beard and wear a ball cap down low, all while wearing 5.11 pants a polo, and the latest combat boots.

    5, Wait, how about getting a dog chain and attaching it to your wallet, shave your sidewalls clean. And grease the shit out of the hair on top of your head in some fashionable surly conducive with fucking NAZI’s retards haircut.

    6, Tattoos! Cuz well they’re cool, make you a badass.

    7, join the Republican Party and spend the rest of your life talking nonsense and begging folks for a dollar or two.

    Shit, I’m fresh outta ideas.

    However I have a secret plan, I’m just waiting until the blog daddies tell me it’s time to strike! On second thought I’ll be old gray and broken down. If I wait much longer.

    If you’re not preparing to shoot these motherfuckers in the face, by the thousands. Go sit in the corner and draw a few Disney cartoons with your lipstick.

    • Dan Patterson August 8, 2022, 6:11 PM

      Dirk has a very good point, and at the same time he is correct he is also wrong. Agreed strongly that voting harder, chatting with blog commenters, and standing quietly on the sidewalk with poster-board signs only gets one punch on your Who Gives A Shit card. One more and you get a free cap.

      Preparing to put some of the mad dogs down, well, now you’re talking action and action is what makes the world spin, baby, so let’s have us some. Berkley riots, LA riots, Chicago DNC riots, and fill-in-the-blank car burning Marxist tributes since; those were all actions and none of them moved the needle. Oh there were some headlines, maybe a vote on a local level in support or opposition, and possibly a few hippie chicks got nailed in passionate atmosphere of revolution but again, no needle movement.

      So if the national leadership, or LEO, or unelected flying monkeys of any flavor need putting down, then who is the first target and who is the first shooter? What do you expect to come of that? Without organized opposition all you get is a bullet through your head or unending prison. So, no. And there is no organized opposition with any power to do anything meaningful. No more Tea Party fizzles, please and no militia groups meeting in Church of God basements in Oklahoma.

      Psychology moves the needle; manipulation of the human mind modifies normal human reaction, and that changes group behavior, and that is what moves the needle. The propaganda forced on everyone the past few years is a beautiful example; we’ve been played like a piano. Take yourselves back to 1980, or ’90, or even 2000; put the everyman personality from then onto the events of today and do so without carefully preparing the population beforehand. You’d get scorn and derision and rightly so. But flood every head with misapplied science, inaccurate and manipulated data, false assumptions of association and expectation, errant examples of what is family, black lies about any reasonable voice of opposition and you get Climate Change, COVID Hysteria, Phony Injection Schemes, and Wippoo blamed for all of it to name a few examples.

      And the Climate change con is so easy to prove phony, that one should be first on everyone’s list. The elite are using that to choke food production, eliminate gas vehicles for no good reason, and force your behavior into that of a lab rat. Do you WANT to be a godammed lab rat?

      So to the question of what to do? Shooting the next asshole you encounter is not a plan but a revenge fantasy, and I am all for exploring those in the privacy of one’s mind but the time for any such action is not here, not yet. Using the tactics of the left makes some sense since so much success has been harvested from those methods. Being polite and expecting the enemy to act accordingly is a no-go, or Dirk’s example of getting a tattoo and a bad haircut, also a no-go.

      Secession only gives more ground to the enemy, fractures the geography, and complicates any interaction with anyone else. Also a no-go despite the romantic attraction.

      Remember the fervor of the Trucker Convoy and that sad end? Don’t do that. Targeted loud public displays, shouting demands, and screeching women seem to work. Let’s put that to the test in front of Congressional offices and the steps of the Capitol. Stand outside the damned Pelosi fence and shout “You Fucking TRAITOR!” to every democrat and spineless L. Graham limp dick that passes by. And do so by the thousands. Get on TV with a cogent spokesman, raise money and run ads, oppose the propaganda with facts. But do so with volume and emotion, or the needle will not budge.

      IF we get to a rebellion me, and thousands like me, are not going to wait for a signal from a blogdaddy. So before we hasten the end of all that’s good, let’s find a strategy and weapons that counter those of the enemy where they are weak.

      • Dirk August 8, 2022, 6:54 PM

        Dan, no disrespect to you. I’m tired of the bullshit, had just learned of the raid on ex-president Trump.

        You’re mistaken. The time for talking’s done. Hasn’t worked this far. But if you think your verbal judo has some mojo, go for it.

        Na the time for putting these fuckers down, in the dirt, is sadly the only ticket with move the stakes probability.

        Using the tool on the left, I’m truly amused. Is/ We, good guys, real Americans, will not be able to achieve shit!

        Sorry Dan this is one of those piss-in-the-wind moments. Your gonna get wet my friend.

        Dan, you are a dam good man. A ton of respect, I’ve just been in your shoes, many years ago, so the ineffectiveness.

        These communists JUST KICKED IN THE DOOR on an EX-PRESIDENT. You me, we mean nothing to these people.

  • Terry Briggs August 8, 2022, 2:21 PM

    I have only one observation. For the life of me, I cannot get over folks that use the term “democratic” instead of democrat. First of all democratic is a verb and the democrats are anything but democratic. Second, democrat is a noun. and can never be confused with democratic. I am a plumber and I know this.

  • Lance de Boyle August 8, 2022, 2:45 PM

    The slowly-heated frog does not get boiled. He’s not that big a dope. He leaps out.
    Once the ratio of rewards for obedience over costs and investments (Peter Blau, Exchange and power in social life) gets low enough (more abuses and usurpations, hungry, trapped, vulnerable), and especially when the regime adds violence to the equation, opposition becomes overt and blood red. “What more is there to lose?”

    And as many here have said, once it starts (given the millions of weapons) it is likely to move like a grass fire.

    “Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!” [Solzhenitsyn.]

    What are they, really? Pencil-necked, bow-tied, soft-handed lackies with “ideas.” Visionaries in their own minds. Geezer politicians with crusty-cornered mouths. Or yacky self-satisfied females who’ve never been grabbed by their fashionable scarves, yanked forward, and punched in the face.

  • pbird August 8, 2022, 4:42 PM

    I worry when people cannot entertain an idea which they didn’t already believe, because of their conditioning. There is no hope of learning anything, or changing anything in that case. Its all tribal barking then.

    • ThisIsNotNutella August 8, 2022, 5:27 PM

      News Flash:

      It’s *always* been tribal barking. Just sometimes we fooled ourselves otherwise.

      The only trick in the only game that counts is to ensure that our (for whatever definition of ‘us’) tribe is on top.

  • ThisIsNotNutella August 8, 2022, 5:25 PM

    I think yer all missing the Point.

    Get out there and Scapegoat some @#$%ers!


    Not even half in jest. It’s *the* human group dynamics ur-mechanism for resolving intractable societal contradictions, discords, tensions. There *is* no other. All our Constitutions, Laws, Principles, Religions, Traditions, etc.. are no more than decorative flourishes and curlicues and, if lucky, sometimes ornamental white picket fences to keep peoples on the safer paths during the Happy Stupid Times between the Years (plural) when History puts on its apron and gloves and takes up the cleaver.

    There’s no way around the expulsions, drivings out, and killings. The best any of us here can hope for is that the can gets kicked down for longer than we live the the natural terms of our lives. But see final para below.

    Anything else is Cope. Our Western Can has been kicked too far down the road for there to be any other way out.

    To the extent that Dan Patterson’s ‘Retreat No More’ credo brings it on sooner rather than later, I’d agree. Pretty sure that having it out with ourselves sooner rather than later will kill fewer millions — unless we just let demographic decline do the trick and allow ourselves to slowly drown in incoming Brown and Black tides of (it’s debatable) humanity.

    Cold… mean.. nasty… not conducive to a good night’s sleep. But since when did the tides of history and our baked-in behavioural coding care about any of that?

    Mar a Lago raided by the FBI just now breaking. No doubt, they will drop illegal guns, childporn, hooker coke, and whatever it takes. Shit, they might even drop a copy of Hunter’s laptop.

    Hmmm. This is one of those moves that could kick off a war.

    Pissed. Off.

    • ghostsniper August 8, 2022, 7:19 PM

      Was out in the workshop stropping some of my throwing hawks and came in my office to take a break, to see this. I’m going back to the bench, double and triple checking everything.

      Prepping the ground.

      They’ve got to knock him permanently out of the game and discredit him by hook or by crook in the eyes of Normie McGrillerson before they pillow Biden. So will be interesting to see what they ‘find’.

      Plus whatever is lined up for the mid-terms.

    • KCK August 8, 2022, 10:01 PM

      I’m on amber alert, here.

      So, you’re the AG, and you order the FBI to raid the ex-president’s compound. How many of you would be that guy, and not consult (seek orders from) POTUS? But, the White House says they’re in the dark.

      Let’s walk this out. You’re POTUS, and you didn’t give this order. Who did? it’s a war order, you see that, right? Somebody is in the shadows, ordering political hits on the top GOPe guy. That. means. war.

      Let’s suppose you’re straight. Also, you’re the ex-POTUS. Every fukn document you touch, from toilet paper to gum wrappers, is classified. Right? The argument that he has classified documents is circular, and specious in the extreme. Bullshit he’s got documents! As if he hasn’t got a team of lawyers.

      Tell me how this isn’t a Nazi raid. If it’s true that just serving the warrant makes DJT not-qualified to run, the he can be as innocent as pie, and just the serving does the hit job. It’s a dirty trick and from the land of dirty tricks.

      You’re the shadow chief executive, and you’re untouchable. You’ll give any order at all, and you can’t be held liable. Nice.

  • ThisIsNotNutella August 8, 2022, 8:00 PM

    So… Mar-a-Lago has just been raided by the FBI. Time to fire up the grills and vote harder!

    Never a dull day in Clown World.

    Which got me thinking about Pagliacci… but then I realised that it’s more Verdi’s Sicilian Vespers that should be up on rotation next.

  • Dirk August 8, 2022, 9:04 PM

    Here we go yet again. Keep talking fellas. Started on WRSA, the bravado the badasses. When the time came not a fucking peep, Pete his dog whistle Bracken, Dodge, Scout, all of em continued to run their soup coolers. American Partisan is the end product, let’s make money selling walks in the woods. STAFF meetings from the professionals, at AP. Once the profit thing came out, you should have seen the writing on the wall.

    Showed up on Jan 6, and many of them walked right into the ambush, gonna stand up and protest. How fucking brave.

    Good on them. Those fucking clowns are dead to me. Still a free country so talk-away, sure ain’t none of you gonna stand up and fight.

    You men and women here, are wonderful, great, intelligent, what you are not is killers. It’s been bred out of you.

    Things here in America are changing. We’ve been sold out for nickels and dimes. I pray you all have a dozen or two dozen hidey holes, with beans bullets, and bandaids. The ability to move freely at night, never in the same place for too long.

    Lastly many on our side simply have underestimated our enemy’s abilities. Overestimated our sides resources and skills sets.

    Once you think you have enough bean bullets bandaids, double that amount. Better yet triple that amount. If you’re east of the Mississippi sorry but you’re fucked. Don’t believe me. Have a look at a night-sat photo of the US. East there is no room to get away. Northeast is a possibility but then you’re in communist strongholds.

    What I just said is harsh,

    “Three can keep a secret if two are dead! “ — Otis Buck Garrett, a Hells Angel out of the Oakland Chapter once told me these words, we were taking a lil drive to another bigger jail. He died in Prison maybe a year ago.

    It’s interesting where we learn some of life’s most important lessons. The lessons we truly grasp hold onto for the rest of our lives. Just because they’re your enemies, doesn’t mean you can’t learn from them.

  • Dan Patterson August 9, 2022, 1:12 AM

    I wrote my response to Dirk before the bell rang, the bell that ended the world we once knew.
    And the arrogance the Brown shirts and their toadies show.
    Yes Dirk, the time for playing nice and treating the enemy as a gentleman is far behind us.
    I cannot wait to hear the explanation and how Hunter Biden, Comey, Clinton et al are heroic.
