As more and more people, organizations, businesses and ideas are censored, or in the current vernacular-"cancelled"- those who know the lessons of history can read the signs. The pastor and German poet Martin Niemoller wrote this upon reflection after having been arrested by the Nazis and spending seven years in concentration camps. His words should be a warning to us today:
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then 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 out for me.
Do you think we have learned from recent history? Have you heard of "The Killing Fields" in Cambodia, the "gulags" during the time of the Soviet Union or know that political prisoners were among those arrested, tortured and executed in the Fascist regimes of Spain, Italy and Germany? Remember what happened to those who were members of "The White Rose" in Germany? (see my blog post for details): www.jopatti.com/blog/remaining-resolute.
I just finished a gripping first-person account of life in North Korea by Park Yeon-mi. She titles her book: "In Order to Live". She recounts stories from her mother and grandmother on how step by step life became restricted, surveilled, desperate for almost everyone, all the time. Even the word "love" is not permitted to be used except in the context of "loving the dear leader".
The psycho linguistics of cancelling important words connecting us to our human condition and "erasing" people, goes along with impoverishing and starving the target population. It happened in ancient times to those who were conquered. After the battles, those who survived were most often forced into slavery and forbidden to utter aloud the names of their vanquished rulers and kin. They were made to serve and they were often brutalized for sport. Escape was punishable by death.
In countries with "supreme rulers" or supreme ruling families, only one narrative and concurrently aligned "opinions" are permitted. As if it weren't enough to silence them and arrest them, public humiliation, shaming them and their family members, is part of the "correction" (punishment). As Orwell writes in 1984, "You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him: you must love him."
Apparently the calls for "re-educating", "shaming" and "cancelling" President Trump, his family, his employees and his supporters are made from those following in the footsteps of all the above totalitarian regimes. Moreover the lead general counsel, an attorney for PBS (Public Broadcasting System) Michael Beller, doesn't stop at advocating for Trump's family to be "re-educated", he stated to his team, “We go for all the Republican voters. Homeland Security will take their children away. And we’ll put them (Trump supporters’ children) in re-education camps,”
Only because he was caught on tape in a sting operation by Project Veritas, did he resign.
The fact that it is happening in what we have known as the United States of America, a country touted as the "leader of the free world" should be horrifying to all except those who strive for the "Great Reset", the "New World Order" i.e. a prison planet. Those who relish controlling others must be delighted at how little resistance they seem to encounter to their plans.
Douglas Kruger - the author of 'Political Correctness Does More Harm Than Good - How to Identify, Debunk and Dismantle Dangerous Ideas' has a perspective on this call for "re-education" and speaks about it online.
"In the wake of US elections, there have been serious calls to deprogram and re-educate half of American voters. That might not be a bad idea. Here are just three of the damaging political prejudices that have long been held by the liberal left." (see the link below for his talk on YouTube).
Members of the professional left are now proposing a ‘truth and reconciliation commission’ to shame Trump supporters. Here is one who tweeted out his vile thoughts.
When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.

As per the formula for rounding up political dissidents and "enemies of the state", here is what Ms. Jennifer Rubin shouts out. She wants "lists".
She is supposed to be a member of the American "free press".
"Jennifer Rubin, a Washington Post columnist and Never Trumper, tweeted that anyone challenging the 2020 election results should not only be disqualified from holding public office, but ostracized from society.
“Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into ‘polite’ society,” she tweeted. “We have a list.”
This is from one of the democrat "field organizers". He actually defends Stalin and the gulags. None of these people have been censured or castigated in the main stream press.
"Kyle Jurek, an Iowa field organizer for the Sanders campaign, said the country will have to "spend billions" on re-education for people that are "Nazified." Jurek suggested the use of gulags for "re-education" of Trump supporters and praised political labor camps. He said gulags have been misunderstood and were actually "a lot better" than described, noting people were paid "a living wage" and allowed conjugal visits.
"There's a reason Joseph Stalin had gulags, right?" Jurek said. "Actually, gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us that they were. Like, people were actually paid a living wage in gulags, they had conjugal visits in gulags, gulags were actually meant for like re-education."
What you may not realize is the United States and China are two countries that already have systems-in the US through the NSA (National Security Agency)-which have profiles on every citizen, every person in their country and anyone globally who uses the internet. All the data is mapped out and linked up. Your personal, social, business, religious contacts, groups and organizations, products you buy, medical records and phone calls are monitored and stored.
Under the wrong leadership, a demand for "lists" based on criteria such as "political party registration" or religious affiliation" or positions on vaccinations-can be compiled with all relevant details in minutes. Artificial intelligence is swift and discompassionate. Rounding up citizens will be easier than ever. NSA knows where you are when and who you associate with, how much money you have and what your medical conditions/prescriptions are. They don't need your neighbor to snitch on you as the East German Stasi or Mao encouraged.
William Binney worked for the National Security Agency as a code-breaker for more than 30 years. At a recent conference, he said their ultimate goal is total population control. It is important to watch this video now:
Given what is allowed to continue, I suggest you identify who you can trust...and who you cannot. Be circumspect about what you post and who knows what your personal beliefs are in almost all arenas. Be the "grey man/woman" until we see if there is any pushback on this march to............x. Examine your weakness and harness your strengths. Prepare!
Ending this evening with a song by Tom MacDonald. If you don't know him I suggest you watch this to have an idea. His lyrics are bold, clever, counter poetics-he is a bright light in the rap realm. He doesn't use "foul" language either, but his lyrics are saber sharp and quick. Before they "cancel" him on YouTube-have a listen to his latest work, "FAKE WOKE"- stunning. www.youtube.com/watch?v=2l6JUNFAJ9o
My new website should be up later this week. There will probably be refinements over the next month and please feel to offer comments, suggestions, constructive criticisms. It will be under jopattimunisteri.com
My new book will be entitled: Traveling Off the X. More on this work next month.
Until Tuesday, March 2-2021, stay healthy my friend,
