Stalinist America

We have finally arrived at Communist America as the two links below demonstrate.

In the first link peaceful protestors, inside the hallway and so outside the office of an abortion clinic were arrested. Six of them have been sentenced to 10.5 years in prison and some of those six may have another 10.5 slapped on them for protesting a different abortion clinic in the same way.

This Stalinist technique needs to be reckoned in comparison to the Black Lives Matter violent protests, where if people were arrested they were instantly bailed out of jail by various organizations including those  connected with Vice President Kamal Harris.

We see again here then, a two tiered system of justice. Criminals receive leniency while middle Americans receive tyranny of the very worst sort.

Samuel Francis, over thirty years ago, labeled this behavior as “Anarcho-tyranny.” The idea in Francis’ theory is that criminals would be treated with a light touch while the law-abiding would be visited with the most draconian treatment.

Indiana Couple Appeals to Supreme Court After Losing Custody for Not Using Transgender Son’s Preferred Pronouns (VIDEO)

This second article is even more outrageous than the first. This one tells a story about a Indiana (Red-state) couple who had their child seized from them by the State authorities merely because the parents refused to countenance the claim of their son that he was really a daughter. CPS admitted there was no abuse in the home besides the “abuse” of not using the preferred pronouns of their insane child.

If these things can be done, why should any of middle America believe that they can get justice from this corrupt Christ hating Federal and State governments.

It is long past time that some lines in the sand be drawn. If we do no stand now we will soon find ourselves complaining, consistent with the complaints of Solzhenitsyn many decades ago;

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? 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! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

  1. Another relevant Solzhenitsyn quote (dealing with the Hobbesian necessity of Leviathan state totally monopolizing the right of using force, and consequent anarcho-tyranny):

    “2. In the Criminal Code of 1926 there was a most stupid Article 139 – “on the limits of necessary self-defense” – according to which you had the right to unsheath your knife only after the criminal’s knife was hovering over you. And you could stab him only after he had stabbed you. And otherwise you would be the one put on trial. (And there was no article in our legislation saying that the greater criminal was the one who attacked someone weaker than himself.) This fear of exceeding the measure of necessary self-defense led to total spinelessness as a national characteristic. A hoodlum once began to beat up the Red Army man Aleksandr Zakharov outside a club. Zakharov took out a folding penknife and killed the hoodlum. And for this he got … ten years for plain murder! “And what was I supposed to do?” he asked, astonished. Prosecutor Artsishevsky replied: “You should have fled!”

    Any genuine initiative like that shown in the French film The Waterfront at Dawn, in which the workers went about catching thieves and punishing them themselves without the knowledge of the authorities, would in our country have been suppressed as illicit! Could one even imagine that way of thinking and that sort of film in our country?”

  2. I have thought of that Solzhenitsyn quote many times. We tend to think of that quote as just a story pulled from the mind of the author, but we need to truly understand that these were real men suffering and dying in that miserable Soviet gulag, who would certainly have taken other actions if ever given a second chance. They had families that were abused, tortured, or even killed in their absence. How could they, or we, ever think that we will get a fair trial if ever hauled off to court, the courts are owned by our mortal enemies whose ultimate goal is to destroy us and the Christ we represent. We had better start to formulate a plan B for these scenarios. Our rulers long ago ceased to be a terror to the evil and became a terror to all that is good. There are profound implications to that truth.
    We need to stop thinking like that citizen of Leningrad that just wants to survive another day, hoping that the secret police are only coming for his neighbor, so that he can eventually die with a whimper. We are sons of the King and we should act like it, working to extend His dominion over all the earth. God give us the grace to be “valiant for the truth upon the earth”, come what may.
