WARNING: Mob Rule is Frenzied Rage and Void Of Conscience, Fueled Only By Your Complicity

How do you think the Bolsheviks and the Nazis started? Totalitarianism? Our Founders specifically designed the Constitutional Republic which rejected mob rule. Both Madison and Jefferson meticulously read books on the history of failed democracies in preparation for the drafting of the Constitution. Madison, in particular, set out to avoid what he identified as the elements of those failures, relinquishing control to the demagogues and mob. Madison wrote of the fervent mob in “Federalist No. 10.”

  • “United and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.” 
  • “A pure democracy, by which I mean a society consisting of a small number of citizens, who assemble and administer the government in person, can admit of no cure for the mischiefs of faction.”

The Framers with intent designed our system of governance not as a direct democracy but as a representative republic. Inherent within was room for deliberative debate and civil conflict resolution for principled governance, both in the halls of government and the soapbox gatherings across the countryside. The First Amendment is an essential component of our Liberty and should be applied equally to all citizens. There is no valid rationale for the destruction of property, physical intimidation, or inciting violence when practicing one’s right to freedom of speech.

Indoctrination and radicalization of citizens, especially students, in our culture have produced the desired effect and we see evidence of this everywhere we look today in our country. And we see it almost exclusive among those who espouse Progressive leftist ideology. Like the historical mobs of the past, the illusion of an organic grassroots movement is just that. Peaceful redress of grievances differs from the mob in that one is lawful and one is lawless in actions and the latter always has its genesis in well-funded backers of a political agenda that requires propaganda and force. You should be asking yourself why is this acceptable, fostered, and enabled? The answer is not a comfortable one. The answer is YOU

American’s checked out as the education system captured our youth and fostered anti – American sentiment over the last decades, read more here. They became dormant and allowed themselves to become sidelined as educators voided basic history, altered it, and stopped teaching civics altogether. Parents and caregivers essentially abdicated their responsibility to raise productive citizens capable of civil discourse and maintaining societal moral tone. The “Mob” has no conscience and feeds off of the terror its victims’ experience.

Today, in America you must risk your life to attend a Trump event! This is very uncomfortable to watch but force yourself to put yourself in Rand Paul and his wife’s shoes for the full video…can you viscerally sense their panic? In one section you can watch Mrs. Paul close her eyes and lower her head as if her anxiety is washing over her and she is trying to center. 

The videos posted are prime examples of unraveling both civil discourse and moral tone. Those exercising political assembly under free speech to share conservative perspectives were respectful, calm, and lawful. The “mob” could have been the same while still expressing their point of view. I suggest that just like “Pavlov’s dog ” they have been conditioned to be entitled, hostile, threatening, and disdainful. When society does not set the limit-civility and moral tone becomes the casualty. There is no excuse for inaction once the evidence of such neglect is on full view. In the wake of violent riots, there are hundreds of examples of mob rule mentality on display in our country.

It has become commonplace now to be attacked in restaurants, fast food establishments, parks, parking lots, political rallies, and so forth, simply for choosing to peacefully express or wear a point of view the radicals disagree with. Presently, in Jefferson’s America, one cannot feel safe attending a political rally or party convention for a candidate for fear the mob will physically attack one’s person, property, or both. Perhaps more disturbing is the fact one can no longer count on law enforcement to protect you when another citizen is breaking the law in these circumstances. How did we ( collectively )allow this to become our country? Again the answer is an uncomfortable one. Apathy, denial, intimidation, and acceptance are the root cause. 

Totalitarianism is often an insidious creep. The infamous prose by  Martin Niemöller: “First, they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.” The practice of disavowing becomes habitual and it is far easier to keep one’s head down and stay unnoticed.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,” – Edmund Burke.

Is this the America you want to live in? Where being white means you cannot eat at a restaurant without the threat of bodily harm?

The mob utilizes doxing routinely and is proficient with social media campaigns to threaten and or remove one from employment, disrupt relationships, as well as organizing around common goals. They mobilize in our streets, literally stopping traffic at intersections and commerce creating security and safety risks. Swarming in mass on cue from a tweet creates chaos which has resulted in millions of property damage, significant physical injuries, deaths, and disruptions to the quality of life for many. The Inauguration of a President erupted into the mob setting fires, physically assaults, and delaying /disrupting crowd flow and our collective silence condoned and hardwired more of the same to come.

The complicit media highlights the mob’s agenda and proceeds to gaslight the audience which only fuels the propensity of violent outcomes. Law enforcement, “stand down ” in liberal strongholds, and just like in this video, refrain from stopping the aggressive actors and the result is the victim becomes prey to the mob’s will. And they do so now with impunity. Censorship is at an all-time level high and only applies to those attempting to debate or oppose the Progressive agenda. The sum of the above provides a chilling effect on freedom of speech and liberty more generally.

Our ancestors bled and died both at home and on foreign soil for our freedoms. They did not do so for Conservatives, Independents, or Liberals. They did so for their countrymen. Those who came before us chose action over apathy, they chose to not look away over denial, they chose to not cower over intimidation, and most of all they vehemently rejected all that was antithetical to our Republic. Do not look away! Your silence and inaction is Acceptance.

Go to the polls and cast your ballot but also be prepared that in the event we lose to the fascists we may be required to take on the mob. Perhaps our ancestors and founders learned about mob rule from the French Revolution. Maybe YOU should pick up a legitimate history book and do the same.

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living abroad in Europe as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.

  1. The videos above show how close the situations were to becoming violent under the most intense provocation of the leftists.
    Thanks to the professional discipline of the police and the cool calm restraint of the conservatives it was prevented from escalating.
    We do have an obligation to speak up against these threatening Marxist Brownshirts at some point. We cannot remain silent.
    I have to humbly agree that if we do nothing then we are enabling this – it will be our fault for not stopping it – we will serve to embolden the enemy.
    It is time for law abiding citizens to unite in opposition to this increasingly aggressive threatening behavior before it gains greater momentum.

  2. Do we need any more evidence to prove that BLM and ANTIFA are the paramilitary attack dogs of the left – the 21st century Nazi Brownshirts?
    How long will we remain sheep being led to the slaughter?
    It is time to make a stand at the ballot box America…vote for law and order while you can still have a choice.
