Don’t let the bastards wear you down

I closed out the post below with the following regarding the Roseburg, Oregon ‘incident:’

A lot of work, right? [To actually study the Roseburg incident in depth.] However, if you don’t have time, just wait. Others will do the legwork, and you can learn more from them. Then go and get the information. Don’t wait for it to fall into your lap via news sources, as that will not happen.

I should have added, however, that by the time you have your arms around Roseburg, another one will be along to take its place. These events take place at regular intervals, reminding me of Karl Rove’s (or Dick Cheney’s) words to the reporter Ron Suskind:

[Guys like you live] “in what we call the reality-based community,” defined as those who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” … “That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

I think that all of these mass shootings are staged events, part of a strategy of tension to keep the American public in a state of fear so that we will continue to support wars abroad and the National Security State at home. It’s people control, thought control and inducement of mass psychosis. I am yet to see one of these events that doesn’t fall apart on closer examination, or at least have some aspects that are highly questionable. But they keep hammering us with them.

My advice: Just ignore them. Don’t let the bastards wear you down.

  1. Mark, not everything is a conspiracy. Sometimes, it’s just mentally ill people with guns killing innocent people. If you like, I’ll give you my cousin’s phone number. He was playing Santa during the Clackamas Town Center shooting and witnessed the entire event. I guarantee you he is NOT part of a government conspiracy.

    Every shooting is not another 9-11 or a JFK assassination.

    Just my two cents.


    1. I do not think you have the necessary facts in hand to judge this event. Nor do I. Your hearsay evidence does not satisfy me. That is why, and please fer chrissakes actually read the blog post you’re commenting on, I say wait for further and better information.


      1. MY FRICKIN’ COUSIN WAS THERE! Jeebus, Mark. Did you read what I posted? Jus’ wonderin’.

        BTW, he’s a good Colorado boy too. Born in Paonia. Our families moved to Oregon to look for work in the fifties. Many stayed in Montana and Colorado though too. They’re still there.


        1. I don’t care if you were there! It does not prove anything. These events in the past that have been fake have fooled the participants and spectators.

          Again, go read Culture of Fear, where I clearly spell out what has to be known before we can ascertain whether is was a real, contrived, faked, part-real-part-fake-made-for-TV. The very fookin notion that you just swallow whole on this stuff, sight unseen, turns my stomach.

          “My cousin was there so it’s real” is only one step away from “I saw it in TV so it’s real.”

          Whadda maroon.


    2. Actually, the post below this one, Culture of Fear, has a better summary of the information you would need to have to judge the event to be real.

      I cannot believe all you people who just swallow whole in these events, time and time again, credulous as puppies.
