Rule number 12 – “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy –
Nine bikers dead, 18 more wounded and LE got really, really lucky that there wasn’t a good shooter amongst all the bikers because they didn’t even have to put a call out for band-aids! Strange much?
170 more bikers have to come up with one hundred and seventy million dollars for bail. Lives – families – absolutely devastated and most likely destroyed.
Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse just put up his latest research update. Another real oddity. It seems, of the 18 police officers – only four fired shots while the other 14 stood around picking their arses.
Nothing about this passes the smell test. Period!
The government never has the resources and the manpower to terrorize the whole society. State terrorism, therefore, is done by separating and marginalizing social groups: first smaller groups, then larger groups, until each group is subdued.
Everywhere, totalitarian governments do the same: one group after another, singled out, marginalized, demonized, and then safely destroyed or brutalized. And the rest of the population remains silent. Why? Because “I am not a Jew, or a Ukrainian, or a Menshevik, or a kulak, or a person with glasses.”
The massacre in Waco of a few days ago bears all the marks of this tactics. A group is picked so small and marginal that most people won’t associate with them. The group is then marginalized and demonized, and all kinds of false accusations are said about them – violence, illegal drugs, illegal weapons, etc. Then, when the group is so marginalized that the majority of the population won’t trust them, and won’t take their word for anything, the government ambushes them and guns them down. The group is scared and subdued. The police are trained and conditioned to not question orders – they will need that conditioning for later, when the “enemy” is moms, or old people, or kids.
And the public? The public is conditioned to disengage. “I didn’t say anything because I was not a biker.”
It was that same Waco that saw an earlier version of the same tactics, with the Branch Davidians. Everyone disengaged, because no one was a Branch Davidian, and the government was able to demonize the small sect enough to cover its own crimes. If the people of Waco were awake to what was happening, and if they had a Solzhenitsyn to tell them what to do, the whole town would be there shooting at those FBI and ATF murderers. But when the government comes for the smaller groups, most people prefer to remain silent.
