I spent all of 2021 on this website describing what was actually going on.
The combination of COVID, the George Floyd riots, the heady embrace of Ibram X. Kendism, Dump losing the 2020 election and the Biden presidency was the tipping point. These people didn’t understand that having Dump in office and on Twitter was having a pacifying effect on his supporters. By removing him from office in the way that they did in 2020, the dam burst and we are moving again.
“One year out from the Capitol insurrection of Jan. 6, 2021, how worried should we be about far-right extremism in the United States? After that tragic day, many analysts (including myself) predicted we’d see a surge in violent attacks throughout the rest of the year. This didn’t happen — but in its place, something arguably more worrisome has occurred.
Rather than a spate of attacks by organized groups — largely what the Biden administration has prepared for — instead we have seen a massive expansion of the broader ecosystem of far-right extremism. I study terrorism and regularly monitor the rhetoric traversing Telegram and other platforms frequented by far-right extremists. Over the past year, it’s become clear that the violence underpinning the Capitol rioters’ ideology has seeped into mainstream culture and politics. …
What some scholars call “mass radicalization” — the mainstreaming of extremism beyond a more organized core — presents a different sort of counter-terrorism challenge for the Biden administration. Rather than playing defense through a law enforcement-driven approach, the administration needs a comprehensive strategy that cuts across different parts of society to weaken the growing pool of extremists prepared to use violence to advance their ideological goals. …
However, it would be a mistake to conclude that the problem has faded away. Though we haven’t seen the most visible signs of growing extremism, a more extreme climate is permeating our society, culture and politics. …
To even begin grappling with the tens of thousands or tens of millions (nobody truly knows) of Americans impacted by “mass radicalization,” the Biden administration will need to be more proactive and less reactive. …”
“While Trump ultimately lost the last election, his base remains powerful and is seen in many red states as the best path to victory. Southern legislatures have aggressively appealed to the emerging far-right mindset, pushing so-called voter suppression bills, while also taking aim at critical race theory, voter fraud and issues around coronavirus. …”
Why would anyone need to engage in violence to make a point?
The Brandon administration is creating massive polarization and changing attitudes all by itself. You don’t have to do anything when the New York Times and Politico are agitating to get rid of the Constitution or the Washington Post is railing against “White appeasement politics.”
Instead of storming the Capitol, you should storm your city council or county commission or your state legislature. If the polls are correct and normies have become this radicalized, some of the things we have tried before in the past might work in the present or the near future.
Now that we are winning the argument because the Democrats have gone mask off on hating White people, there should be “a call to organizing” or “a call to politics.”
