HAAAAAAAAA! What a self contradicting term that is. I mean I’m sick of just hearing the term “protest” period. This my friends, is a moment in history where the rubber meets the proverbial road. Now the world (especially we Americans) are FINALLY fucking seeing how much good protesting does and the corporately owned government’s response to it. Suuuuuuure they told you that you can do it. You just have to be where they tell you and do what they allow you to do… or else.

If you look at the past hundred years or so of American protesting you’ll see a gradual drop off in it’s effectiveness. It used to be that protesting was the public’s way of saying “this is our way of extending a peaceful hand in getting our point across, change it or we will not be so peaceful”. Protest was more of a game changer back when due to the threat of force behind it. The whole point of the “protest” was to show the powers that be that we’re giving them a chance to modify their behavior before drastic measures are taken. Now that people have been doing it for so long and the globalist elite have dumbed down and sissified America they no longer fear force.

These days they just point out the window and laugh at you, beefing up security with your own sons and daughters, daring you to do something about it. It’s an open field taunt. Not only that, they’re passing bills to shut you up and censor you. Apparently people standing outside with signs are giving them a headache. And the thing is these bills pass so rapidly and with such fluidity one must wonder how bills promising to help citizens and the economy take so fucking long to make it anywhere.

These pieces of shit are have no respect your protesting or your lives. How in the hell do you peacefully protest a secret faction that kills over 5,000 of us in one fell swoop and publicize it, AND lie about who did it?  And on top of that kill us everyday through military deployments for unjust wars, poison in food and drink, put chemicals in every God damned thing we come in contact with. This is the equivalent of bringing a knife to a gun fight . . . except the knife we’re bringing is rubber, and we’re bringing only the handle.

Thomas Jefferson was a smart man. He was an avid student of history and knew that history repeats itself. He knew that the country he helped found would one day slip into tyranny and wrote countless pieces of correspondence to his colleagues warning against this. He even wrote into the Declaration Of Independence. Here are a few quotes from Thomas Jefferson himself. Now YOU tell ME if this man was talking about today’s “protesting”

  • “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them.” –Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356
  • “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.” –Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1787.
  • “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends [i.e., securing inherent and inalienable rights, with powers derived from the consent of the governed], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” –Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:315                      
  • “We think experience has proved it safer for the mass of individuals composing the society to reserve to themselves personally the exercise of all rightful powers to which they are competent and to delegate those to which they are not competent to deputies named and removable for unfaithful conduct by themselves immediately.” –Thomas Jefferson to Pierre Samuel Dupont de Nemours, 1816. ME 14:487

So with all that said, before you pick another sharpie and poster board think about the difference that is going to make. Think about how you’re changing the world you have to pass down to your children. Think about what you would have to do in colonial times to get the chains of oppression off your back. Because the time is now. Holding a sign outside some office building isn’t going to rewrite history and definitely not ensure your place in it. Freedom is not to be defended humbly. It is to be defended with extreme resolve and fortitude.

    Great post, I was at Occupy Bristol, only popped down for the day to check out the atmosphere and get the jist of the whole “Occupy thing”, and a similar thing was going on there. They were pretty much forced back onto Religious ground, forced away from the state they are active participants in and then eventually kicked off the ground. The government have extorted the claims suggesting in the BBC: “”Occupy Bristol protest repairs ‘to cost £100,000′”” which is total bullshit. I was there, they made a bit of messs and the grass had been destroyed. Don’ think that costs that much boyo! Anyway, democracy is clearly a sham if peaceful protest cannot take an open course in the open world. Cheers bp.
