Being a part of today’s Counterculture is different. Unlike the countercultural movement of the 1960s, today’s movement is part of the cold civil war going on in America.
Have no doubts: We are in the the throes of war. The American Left has declared war on those of us who do not subscribe to their progressive ideology, and those of us who elected Donald Trump as president are going to fight back at all costs. Part of the fight lies with the new counterculture.
So far, this war is cold. Whether or not it goes hot is the choice of the progressives.
For some clarity on the new counterculture and the cold civil war, please read the following post, “We can’t spare this man; he fights“, by CLFA admin.
War is barely recognizable these days. Soldiers are killed without a drop of blood. Entire invasions occur without a single shot fired. Colonization is established with governmental assistance by the targeted nation, and we haven’t executed a traitor since 1953.
But make no mistake; this is a war. If we lose this one, our way of life will be lost forever and our children enslaved.
Which brings us back to what the war looks like today: It is bloodless. We can bear all the arms we want, but there will be no way to shoot a regulation, or a curriculum, or a boycott, or a social media lynching, or a helpless 5-year-old child colonist.
We should be grateful that this war is bloodless; our own children have food and healthy parents at home. Most of us will keep our jobs. Daily life is not disrupted. It is the most comfortable war in history. But it is still a war.
Has there ever been a war where good people didn’t resort to doing things that would be considered despicable under any other circumstances? Who bayonets a loudmouthed entertainer in day-to-day life? Who guns down someone who posted a political comment? Who launches missiles on “sanctuary cities”?
Thank God, we don’t have to do those things. But we must not forget that this is still a war and if we don’t fight it as such, it will already be too late before we have the opportunity to do those other things.
The above has to do with the political assassination of Milo Yiannopoulos. Full disclosure: I agree with CLFA’s entire post. They told the truth, and most people who are politically aware and not of the Left agree that we are now in a struggle for our way of life.
And there will be no surrender. We who write books and stories that counter the freedom-sucking culture the Left has foisted upon us will never stop fighting.
The only thing not mentioned in the CLFA piece is the dread we feel when our countercultural writer’s minds are overcome with thoughts of this war turning hot.
So, we are in an ideological struggle with people who hate us and everything we stand for. But that doesn’t mean they’re going to win.
Though progressives have managed to divide this country, they are no longer able to fool anyone except themselves.
With the advent of the internet, social media, alternative media and other 21st Century technology, people have caught onto their scam.
After years of scandals by the Obama administration were covered up by the mainstream media, we watched as CNN tried to rig a presidential debate by giving the questions to Hillary Clinton.
We saw the Wikileaks Podesta emails and then found other sources than the mainstream media for facts, because they showed themselves to be nothing more than an army of bloodletting mercenaries masquerading as journalists. And they work for the Democrats.
Still, it was rough going as we endured fake polls put out by all the usual suspects in an attempt to gaslight us into believing that Clinton had the election in the bag.
And even though we were assured by all the “best” people that we didn’t have a chance in hell of winning, we marched our deplorable butts to the polls and voted for Donald Trump.
Our votes were against Progressivism. We voted NO to creeping socialism. We rejected the Left and their religion.
And our prayers were answered on November 8 with Trump’s election as President.
After the election It became even more apparent that the Left was under the impression that America and everyone in it should kowtow to them “just because.”
But in their zealous attempt to grab back the power they had lost, they really jumped the shark.
Their hateful, violent and nasty protests and riots, their calls for recounts, their attempts to intimidate electors, their screams of “popular vote!” and every other trick they tried to overthrow the Democratic process were on display for the entire world.
And no one but their most cult-like followers likes what they see. Especially younger Americans who don’t want to be told how to think. They saw all of the above, too.
These are young Americans we’re talking about. Eighteen to twenty-five years old.
The Leftists have forgotten something. Something rather important. And that is the fact that kids have a tendency to rebel.
Everyone who has ever been a child or raised a child is aware of this. Some kids rebel in small ways and others in big ways, but I don’t believe any teen on earth hasn’t committed acts of rebellion in defiance of their parents, school or in some cases, the system.
During the counterculture movement of the 1960s, teens and college kids protested the Vietnam war, experimented with everything from weed to hallucinogenic drugs, and immersed themselves in music that reflected the counterculture.
Boys grew their hair. Girls dressed like hippies. Students went to Woodstock to hear legends like Jimi Hendrix and other up and coming stars of Rock & Roll. They did all of this in defiance of their parents and the system.
Some of them grew out of their rebellion and went on to become productive members of society. Some became drug addicts that never came out of their rebellion. And the worst became the fabled “Man.”
The Man. The man that all those Classic Rock greats wrote protest songs about, and which they themselves have now become.
And though some of today’s kids no doubt will stay in line and imitate the hatred and intolerance exhibited by their elders, many others will rebel against the puritanical strictures of their own Progressive parents.
There is no way that this won’t happen. No way.
Because the kids of today are observing the hypocrisy of their parents, the media, Hollywood and the system at large.
If they have not been brainwashed to the point of no return, they cannot help but notice the many hypocrisies and what seems to be a mass psychosis that has overtaken the American Progressive Left.
Many kids are fans of Milo, whose recent removal from what the system says is holy is a study in hypocrisy, intolerance, lies and bullying of a victim of childhood rape. Yes… Milo was raped as a young boy. By a priest. He’s also a homosexual. And an immigrant.
Milo embodies everything the Progressive Left says they protect. Yet they attempted to destroy him for one reason: He differs from them politically.
It’s the same with all the other people these Leftists have put in their bullying crosshairs. The treatment of Ivanka Trump is another example of their war. Because of the bullying tactics of the Progressive group #grabyourwallet, her clothing line has been removed from a growing list of retailers that caved to the Left.
And while Progressives are too blind to see that they have become the new “Man”, the kids are not. And they are part of the new counterculture.
They see the hypocrisy in every part of the rotten system, and they don’t like it. Some of them are old enough to vote, and they went to the polls and voted against the system.
Others are pre-teens or high school kids who will rebel against their own parents during the coming years. They have their own minds, you see.
They can think. They will question what they see happening. They will hear the hatred dripping off the tongues of their teachers, and since thought is not a crime, they can and they will ruminate over what they witness every day while listening to alternative music in their bedrooms.
They will visit new You Tube personalities. They will hang out on Reddit. They will engage with other rebellious teens in the new counterculture.
They will hang posters of Pepe in their bedrooms. They will hide Ivanka Trump shoes under their beds the way their parents used to hide joints under the mattress.
In two years, or fours years or six, they will vote. And they will win the Cold Civil War.
