Not Today! – A Guest Post by Amie Gibbons
They say kneel. They scream it. They demand it. They threaten our lives and livelihoods if we do not comply.
And do you know how we reply?
I’m shocked the Captain Americas came out of leftist Hollywood like they did. With a hero who stands for patriotism, truth, justice, good, the American way, freedom, individualism, and fighting until your last breath for those ideals.
One of the points of fiction is to get you to think through a story. The Captain Americas tell stories of ideals the left can not allow to flourish. And yet, they’re out there. Look at The Winter Soldier. The whole speech computer Dr. Zola makes is exactly what the left is pulling now, and Zola was the bad guy.
“HYDRA was founded on the belief that humanity could not be trusted with its own freedom. What we did not realize was that if you tried to take that freedom, they resist.
The war taught us much. Humanity needed to surrender its freedom willingly. After the war, S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded, and I was recruited. The new HYDRA grew, a beautiful parasite inside S.H.I.E.L.D.
For 70 years, HYDRA has been secretly feeding crises, reaping war. And when history did not cooperate, history was changed… HYDRA created a world so chaotic that humanity is finally ready to sacrifice its freedom to gain its security.
Once the purification process is complete, HYDRA’s New World Order will arise. We won, Captain. Your death amounts to the same as your life, a zero sum!”
A lot of us are feeling that last line. Everything we’ve done to push back leftist policies, every fight from the local level to the federal added up to nothing. A zero sum. We’ve lost. The socialists won. They rigged an election, took over two branches, and the Supreme Court can be threatened to let through socialist programs against the Constitution with a court packing plan, a la FDR.
So how did they do this?
They sowed fear and chaos through our cities on and off for years. Then 2020 hit, and they grabbed onto a molehill and turned it into a mountain to scare the shit out of all of us.
Some disease that’s basically a bad cold came out of China, contributing to the deaths of many of the elderly in countries with bad, socialist healthcare systems, and the political class in America picked up the ball and fucking ran with it.
Yeah, I’m saying it. Covid is nothing worse than the Swine Flu, actually, it’s probably less bad because it hasn’t taken out very many young people, which a nasty flu does. We as a country could have told people about the disease, the risks to the elderly, what could happen to younger people, like with the flu, told people they should wash their hands well, wear a mask, gloves, stay away from others, etc., and went about our lives. Just like we did in 2009 with the Swine Flu.
How many people did the Swine Flu kill? Oh, you don’t know off the top of your head? THAT’S BECAUSE THE MEDIA WASN’T FUCKING BLOWING IT UP FOR A YEAR!
Yes, people died, we do that. It’s kinda part of that whole being human thing. Especially when we get old. Hey, I hate it too. I’d love to be a vampire. To stay young and healthy forever, or until somebody staked me because they thought vampires were evil. (I’d be a good one, like still me, not one like a Buffy vampire where the souls are gone and there’s a demon in its place.) I sure as shit don’t want to get old and die.
But they blew it up over media. Every single death that was due to respiratory issues, or where the person had the covid when they died, even if they died from injuries in a car crash, even some people officials just reported as having covid because the person died and was old, all were counted and spat out. Every single day. On every news site. Everything on social media was around it.
So the public was afraid enough for the governments to step in to “help.”
(What are the scariest words in the English language? Anyone? Buelur?)
First it was 2 weeks to flatten the curve (Gee, it’s been a long 2 weeks.)
Then came the mask mandates.
The governments shut down business, established curfews, dictated the businesses they “allowed” to stay open to not let people in without masks on, thus obscuring our faces, and dehumanizing us.
And yes, the governments did dictate that to businesses. So if you’re one of the people saying businesses can require masks because they’re private businesses, then yes, you’re correct. The part you’re missing in that little logic circle is the part where businesses decide to do that. They didn’t. They’re doing it because the government threatens to yank business licenses, liquor licenses, and/or fine them up the ass, if they don’t establish these rules.
Even businesses that are all about freedom. A particular America loving brewery in Nashville that we hold a lot of conservative events at because they’re awesome, is one such place. They will not play mask police. They think it’s a stupid as we do. But the last time our group had a meeting there, someone called the health department to tattle on all the people not wearing masks, and the health department actually parked officials at the door for a bit to make sure people were wearing them.
(Luckily they were gone by the time I got there, because I refuse to wear a mask. And I would’ve been an asshole about it. But, really. I won’t do the mask thing. It’s my line in the sand. I’ve worn one on the plane to see my family, and that was because they really wanted to see me and I love them, and I wore one when visiting the hospital. That’s literally it.)
Some people told me and bf after the talk at that event that if the health department shows back up, just hurry put on our masks if we’re not sitting at a table, so it looks like we’re all complying. Do you know what I said?
“We don’t have masks.”
Yeah, read what the person said to us again. Masks have become so prevalent, so normal, so expected in our society now, that even patriots assume everyone has a mask on them, and are surprised when ya don’t.
Because you’re supposed to have them, even if only to give the appearance of compliance.
Say it with me now. NO!
Stop complying! Stop letting this be normal. Go to stores, restaurants, recreational activities, walking around town, and don’t have a fucking mask on your person. Just don’t do it. (I’m not saying this if it’s required for your job. We have to get it less normalized before y’all can risk that, because now you’d probably just get fired.)
If the store says you have to have one to get in, ask politely if there’s exceptions, if not, don’t shop there. Go to the grocery store in the next county if you’re in a commie one like me (don’t worry, I’m moving in May 😀 ), or to the next one down the street if you can’t get out of the commie central quickly or easily. Figure out what places (or what times they have workers not playing mask police) are available to you, and go there. Same for restaurants saying you have to wear one to your seat (which is so stupid on so many levels my brain burns from the idiocy dripping onto it through my ears whenever I hear such bullshit).
There are so many people who comply because they don’t want to be a problem, or it’s not a big deal so they’ll just wear one, or whatever. People who don’t believe they should have to wear them, but comply anyway.
Stop it! All of you. Stop it today.
It became normalized so fast because almost everyone against it went along with it anyway, so they didn’t make waves.
Make. Some fucking. Waves.
If half the people in the grocery store are suddenly not wearing masks, it’s going to be a hell of a lot harder for the mask police to tattle on all of you. If this becomes more normal in stores, bars, restaurants, and so on, the governments won’t be able to cow businesses into submission, because they’ll be so many with people not wearing masks that they won’t be able to park officials at them all to watch all of us.
This is why they made up the whole, if someone else isn’t wearing a mask, they’re putting you in danger even if you’re wearing one thing. Yeahhhhhh. It wasn’t enough to say people need to wear masks to protect themselves. No. They had to have the public convinced that the person next to them could kill them, put them at risk, so they report on each other.
See the brilliance there? The authorities don’t have to spread themselves thin keeping an eye on everyone, the Mask Stasi does it for them. And they can do this easily because most people are going with the flow and following the rules, so the ones who aren’t are easy to spot and take down.
So, I say again, stop following the fucking rules! It’s not harmless to follow the crowd. It’s not you trying not to be difficult. And it does make a fucking difference.
In less than a year, they scared the public into dehumanizing ourselves by covering our faces, staying home and cutting ties with our social circles (which social creatures need, trust me; I’m an introvert who is happy to be working from home because of the convenience and because my cat’s here, who is severely hurting because of the lack of human interaction in everyday life), and reporting on our neighbors and friends. Not only that, but they made it normal. They made it “the right thing to do.”
Oh my god, how brainwashed are you when you think screaming in someone’s face because they aren’t wearing a mask, or turning a business you go to and like into the authorities is the right thing to do?
We are not going to take back our country in a day. We just aren’t. There’ll be damage that it might take something extreme, like war breaking it all down, to undo. But it’s time to take a page of the left’s book on some of this.
- Don’t comply with the dehumanizing and over regulation. That’s the first one for a reason. Because that’s what started the 2020 steal and I’m fucking sick of our side going with the flow and trying to be polite. Walk into the store or restaurant without a mask. Just don’t mention it. Some places will ask you to leave, some won’t. The former ones lose your business permanently.
Don’t be a Karen and scream at retail workers (No, really, don’t do that) but start being unruly!
- Teach. The left took over society so completely because they infiltrated important, next generation affecting areas for decades. Education, journalism, and entertainment. Start with teaching your kids and others the ideals America was built upon. Equality, individualism, hard work, reaping the fruits of your labor, and freedom.
- Report. The main stream media can’t be trusted. They proved this all year by blowing up a virus, during the summer by portraying domestic terrorist attacks as peaceful protests, on the 6th by blowing up one riot like it’s the modern day 9/11, and probably will have something else they twist and lie about today. (I’m writing this a few days in advance, so if something happens in the next few days, that’s why it’s not addressed here. But I am predicting leftist shenanigans on inauguration day.) So follow local and/or small time sites reporting what’s going on, watch things streamed live if you can, go to the site of the action and stream live for the world to see so it can’t be covered up and edited out so easily later.
- Entertain. Yep, this is where us writers come in. Entertain the masses, with our own subtle little messages, portraying liberty, thinking for yourself, freedom loving Americans as normal everyday people. (Don’t go overboard into message fiction that trumps all plot and characterization, that’s where the left went the last decade or so and that’s why those books and movies suck).
The left didn’t brainwash millions of people overnight. They did it over 40 odd years of movies, TV shows, and books subtly portraying the right, conservatives, gun owners, Southerners, religious people, those in rural areas, and so on, as backwards idiots, rich fat cats keeping the little people down, psychotics, and bad guys.
And they didn’t start out shoving it down our throats like they do now. They had a character say a snarky comment about Republicans in an otherwise completely non-political, funny show, like Gilmore Girls. They had episodes of Frasier where guns were portrayed as wild things that went off on their own. Any shows in the 90s and early 2000s showed people who were home schooled as inbred idiots.
They made those labeled as Democrats the normal, everyday people you watched because it was good entertainment. And then they took that label and moved it further and further left until you have the socialists we have today. And people not paying attention to real politics, just to the media, still think of Democrats as the blue collar, for the little guy, wanting equal rights normal people they were portrayed as in those shows. Because the average person on the street, is the normal, hard working, wants a better life for their kids American, who thinks politics suck and has no clue it’s the democrats going socialist that fucked up our country because the media keeps saying it’s conservatives messing things up.
We have to slowly take things over, take them back. (Assuming we don’t completely lose America in the next few years and have to go to war to get it back.) We have to play the culture war. That starts with you. Yes, every single one of you.
Today, stop complying with what they say is normal. Stop accepting it. As Sarah says, build up, build around. We have to. This is the fight of our lives.
When they tell us to knell, say, “Not Today!”
As for my part, I write entertaining, character driven urban fantasy series where the characters are everyday people like you and me, who work hard, believe in love, loyalty, truth, justice, and the American way, who carry weapons, fight evil, and are heroes for it.
My Elemental Demons series is one such series, and coincidentally, Book 2, Scorpions of the Air, came out on the 19th! (No, really, the book was finished in December, and got through editor and beta readers at the right time for it to come out right before the inauguration.) It just worked out that way. But damn, is it timely! Check it out 😀
There are more things in Hell and Earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
*This is Sarah Hoyt, and I approve of this message. I too refuse to kneel. I can’t do much, but what I can I’ll do. There will be more USAian fiction coming, to help those of you who are more useful than I.
Our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor are all worth it to live in a Constitutional Republic once more, to go home to America. I gave up everything I was and knew to live in America and be American once. And I’ll do it again. As many times as it takes to go home to America.
May G-d bless us and help us in the dark days ahead. G-d Bless America. We don’t kneel and we don’t bow. Congenital trait. We inherited it from our founding fathers. -SAH*
