Oppression Instead of Admission
by Takuan Seiyo
The monster that ate its middle
When Liberal State was young, I thought it was in the image of the mythical serpent Ouroboros, whose head consumes its tail. But as soon as the acceleration of state propaganda, oppression and printing of fiat paper money started, I understood that my analogy was wrong.
Ouroboros is a model of feudal society, or early industrial society in Dickensian hues. The top consumes the bottom. But in the Liberal-Oppressive State, the head and the tail join forces to consume the middle. It’s a two-headed monster: one head at each end. The ancients had that one in their lore too: the Amphisbaena.
The Top Head is composed of the mega-billionaires, CEOs of major corporations, a small pool of “electable” (i.e. liberal) politicians, the mandarins at the top of government’s bureaucracy, labor unions bosses, lawyers and academics. The Tail Head is the failed, lower-IQ minorities, most nonwhite or white and intensely ethnocentric and therefore corrosive “Hispanic” immigrants (e.g. this one) and even their American-born, rich and famous descendants. All that is forever expanded by the Top Head’s obsession with race, immigration, the psychotically truculent identity freaks, and all other feeders at the government’s trough. Included in the latter are about 21 million (civilians alone) government employees — most of them unionized and fighting to perpetuate the racket that feeds them.
If you have to ask who the middle is, you are the amateur sitting to a game of poker with pros and not knowing who the mark is at the table. You are.
“In Greek mythology, the Amphisbaena was a dangerous dragon-like beast that lived in the Libyan desert,” informs Beastpedia. “It fed off ants, human corpses and other prey of opportunity.” Indeed, the Top Head of the Liberal-Oppressive State is doing all it can to consume the ants in the middle, whether directly or in a joint effort with the other dragonhead.
It seems that the elected and appointed functionaries of the Liberal-Oppressive State, the 1% that holds half the global wealth, and their groomed poodles in the media, academe, public education and jurisprudence, convinced themselves that they make a good fit with the Tail Head, including its millions of feral or at least whitey-hating Blacks, well over 1.5 million violent criminals in more than 33,000 gangs — two thirds of them willfully imported immigrants or their children — from Mexico, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Somalia, Sudan, Ethiopia, China, Vietnam and other countries. And these children look like this, at least in the MS-13 gang, to which an uncountable number of “Dreamers” has been added in the past year thanks to B.H. Obama’s untiring effort to elect himself a new people via open borders (Statistics based on data and extrapolation from 2011 FBI National Gang Threat Assessment). Europe has its own landscape of demographic sabotage and unimaginable, intentional destruction of its human landscape, human capital, culture, and future prospects.

The Top Head keeps jabbering in language of high-morality, altruism, do-goodism, “European values,” “America’s shining city on the hill,” democracy, shared sacrifice, justice, peace and “equity” (camouflaged Marxism if ever there was one). This is repeated 24/7 in 500 cable and satellite channels, magazines and webzines and movies and fiction, news, entertainment or talking heads on TV, in schools and universities. Even the United States Navy is now sold to the public as “A global force for good.” But underneath it all, Lenin’s old maxim rules: Kto, Kogo, or “Who, Whom.”
Residents of some of the most energy-consuming manors on Earth fly to Davos on private jets to scheme under megawatt crystal chandeliers how to enforce on the serfs a global wealth redistribution scheme on the pretext of “global warming.” They — putatively “our” side, the U.S. Republican Congressional leadership — drafted a “Border Security” Bill that spends $10 billion, removes the existing border fence, and deports no illegals. Mega-capitalists disclose that the Saul Alinsky acolyte of Libyan Al-Qaeda fame, Hillary Clinton, will see a flow of funds to her presidential campaign described as “astounding, intimidating floodgates.” And the most powerful NeoMarxist organization in the United States, The Center for American Progress, revealed under pressure that its main funders in 2014 were the cream of capitalist America: Wall Street (Goldman, Bank of America, Citi, Blackstone, George Soros foundations), tech (Apple, Google, Microsoft, the Gateses), iconic mega-corporations (Walmart, Time Warner, Visa, Pepsi etc.), foreign interests (Israel, Japan, Nordic Council of Ministers, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates), the three most “progressive”/multiculti saboteur labor federations (one of local government employees AFSCME, and two of teachers: NEA and AFT), plus the usual far-left foundations bearing famous capitalist names: Ford, MacArthur, Sloan, Rockefeller etc.
It’s not in vain that the most powerful American politician, B.H. Obama, was a “community organizer” teaching the subversive methods of the Socialist-Gramscian tactician, Saul Alinsky. The second most powerful, Hillary Clinton, was an adoring Alinsky groupie. The cream of the crop of Europe’s political leaders: from Hollande and Valls in France to Merkel and Cohn-Bendit in Germany, to most any currently serving or retired Swedish or Norwegian prime minister, to the power apex of the European Commission, e.g. Jacques Delors, the architect of Europe’s Liberal-Oppressive State, and more recently José Manuel Barroso and Jean-Claude Juncker — all these people, were, are, Socialists or even camouflaged Communists and Maoists. They have forgotten more about the communist “anything goes” prescriptions for attaining and keeping power than the governed serfs will ever learn.

We don’t have the space here to analyze in detail how willful economic destruction of the middle class parallels the demographic one. Or how the cultural destruction does. But let’s just say that if your job was shipped to China or outsourced to a “temporary working visa” Indian, and the value of your savings and retirement pension is plunging because the Top Head has printed so much money to cover the losses of the Top Head (i.e. its banksters), and your health care is both worse and more expensive because the Top Head has poached it for the benefit of the Tail Head, and your taxes have risen for the same reason, and your only daughter has just come home with a large hoop in her nose, a new Afghan boyfriend and, at last, a $10-per-hour job at the local marijuana dispensary, and you can’t find parking for your car anymore because the Top Head’s planners are implementing Agenda 21 through forced “urban density” and drastic decrease of parking space, and Somali “refugee youths” are cavorting in a “hotel” one block away that your Congress mandated so that Chinese mafiosi get their green cards by investing $500,000 each in this EB-5 scam, you don’t have much spirit or energy left to think what else is being done to you and what it all means.
But that’s what it means: the two-headed monster, gobbling the ants, from both sides.
The Full Spectrum is fuller than you think
We saw in Part 1 how Muslim depredations in America have given the Liberal-Oppressive State an excuse to ratchet up to once-imaginable levels its spying on and plain intimidation of its legitimate non-Muslim citizenry. But that’s just a part of a pattern showing an increasing corralling and marking for State-inflicted persecution and gross violence against autochthons who show dissent to the radical remodel plans that their betters have in store for them.
The military is obviously the most lethal oppressive tool that the Liberal-Oppressive State has at its disposal. And increasingly, the military identifies “hate,” “terror” and “civil unrest” in the peaceful, rightful, Constitution-venerating, Christian (in one way or another) owners of the country, and avoids by all means identifying the actual perpetrators: Muslim jihadis, black and other minorities’ gangs and psychotic lone wolves, “Hispanic” narco gangs and so on.
And so we have U.S. Army top general George Casey expressing the bizarre notion that to harm ‘diversity’ would be a greater tragedy than the “Allahu Akbar” murder by U.S. Army major Nidal Hassan — religion, ethnic origin, jihadi background unmentionable — of 13 US soldiers plus the wounding of over 30.
Below, but still high enough, we have a battalion commander at the famed 101 Airborne Division who sent an indoctrination email to his subordinates, identifying American “domestic hate groups” that “do not share our Army Values.” Those include Evangelical Christians, GLBT opponents, New World Order opponents, anti-immigration activists, and resisters to jihad, Islamization and sharia.
This is not an exception, but the rule in Obamerica. The blogger, author, awakened American and former Washington DC attorney, Michael Schneider, has compiled a sourced list of 72 types of Americans (pretty much all but “Progressives”) that are described as “potential terrorists” (here).
You will search in vain for names of the groups from which terror, murder and other gross violent crime actually emanate. The public threat is identified as those who “talk about individual liberties,” “fear gun-confiscation,” are “right-wing extremist,” anti-Muslim, anti-Immigrant, anti-Gay, “concerned about illegal immigration,” libertarians critical of government and taxes, Evangelical Christians and other such.
At Fort Hood, the very site where the second-generation Palestinian Muslim immigrant Nidal Hassan committed his “extremist” indiscretion in 2009, four years later soldiers were being taught that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation that was “tearing the country apart”.
In July 2012, Small Wars Journal published “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future” by Colonel (US Army, ret.) Kevin Benson and (Assoc. Professor of History) Jennifer Weber. Col. Benson has had a distinguished military career, and is currently an instructor at US Army’s University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies. And this is what he instructs:
“In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest. Activists remove the chief of police and either disarm local police and county sheriff departments or discourage them from interfering. In truth, this is hardly necessary. Many law enforcement officials already are sympathetic to the tea party’s agenda [snip]. The leaders of the group [snip] invoke the Declaration of Independence and argue that the current form of the federal government is not deriving its “just powers from the consent of the governed” but is actually “destructive to these ends.” Therefore, they say, the people can alter or abolish the existing government and replace it with another that, in the words of the Declaration, “shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
It’s a clear identification of the enemy that the U.S. military should prepare to fight: you. You, extremist tea-bagger Islamophobic racist homophobe tax-stingy Christian whitey — and the United States Declaration of Independence.
The rest of the paper is just a list of “Full Spectrum Operations” designed to bring you to heel. If this is different from what the Soviet Army’s role was in its conquered territories behind the Iron Curtain, I’d like to know how.
Propaganda poster of the pre-1980s communist regime in Poland, with a Soviet soldier and a caption stating that he stands on guard of Poland’s peace. The difference between then and Western reality now is that no one believed the commie propaganda.
But that is just the beginning. There are “more than 900,000” cops are in the United States; no one knows for sure. That pertains to the aggregate of 18,000 state and local law enforcement agencies, excluding dozes of federal agencies that have their own law enforcement arms. In 2008 there were 120,000 armed federal police, but there are many more now.
Paramilitary storm troops multiply at various government agencies at a dizzying rate under what Cato Institute has called “The Security Pretext”. That includes even innocuous-seeming federal Labor and Education departments, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (i.e. “weather forecasts”).
All that increasingly resembles an occupying army, dressed in fatigues or in SWAT black and armed as though for an assault on Fallujah.
American police have been militarized with combat armaments that were used in the Iraq war. Armored assault vehicles, combat helicopters, grenade launchers, full-auto combat rifles, machine guns and more. And that’s not including exotic law-enforcement-only weapons such as drum-fed automatic shotguns, rifles that shoot around corners, “smart” bullets that track the moving target, drones and blimps as platforms not only for snooping but also for killing, “speech-jammer” guns, acoustic weapons (think Walls of Jericho), “Mobility-denial” projectiles and much more.
All are being purchased with the serf population’s tax dollars — or, by police departments selling the serfs’ confiscated assets — no crime need be proven. This is a major, direct violation of the Due Process clause of the American Constitution — that by now inconvenient piece of parchment that every American policeman is sworn to support, obey and defend. As do the Constitution-mocking President, all members of Congress, and military officers, with slight variations in the wording but no variation in the contempt that the ruling elite have for that founding document.
Even that is not the full measure of it, according to John Whitehead:
“Just as we witnessed neighborhood cops being transformed into soldier cops, we’re about to see them shapeshift once again, this time into robocops, complete with robotic exoskeletons, super-vision contact lenses, computer-linked visors, and mind-reading helmets. Just as military equipment created for the battlefield has been deployed on American soil against American citizens, we’re about to see military technology employed here at home in a manner sure to annihilate what’s left of our privacy and Fourth Amendment rights.”
Whitehead, a constitutional law and human rights lawyer, the founder of the Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, calls what America has become since 2001, ‘Fascism with a Smile.’
And if you think it’s for your security, think again.
Asked why Spokane County’s Sheriff Department needed MRAPs, a sheriff’s deputy answered, “We’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition. They have weapons here locally.” Spokane County’s Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich called the reporting of this by Infowars “hatemongering” and “misleading.”
Now, a MRAP is a 20-ton Mine Resistant Ambush Protected infantry assault vehicle. What has it got to do with Spokane County? That place is 90% White. Only 1.93% of its residents are Blacks — and that’s the most crime and crowd mayhem-prone segment of America’s population. Immigrants number only in the thousands; nearly half are, uncharacteristically, European. The rest are mostly from the high-IQ, law-abiding peoples of East Asia. The number of Muslims — the community from which terrorism and extreme social centrifugalism arise, is negligible. Homicide statistics are accordingly enviable, compared to any other, more “vibrant” area (statement based on author’s analysis of FBI 2012 national crime report).
So why the MRAPs? In an unguarded moment, that which is normally discussed behind closed doors came out: it’s the “constitutionalists.” Which is the same segment that so worried Concord, NH, Police Chief that in August 2013 he demanded an armored vehicle from Homeland Security. And a 2009 Missouri State police training document (reproduced here) presented the small Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties, their supporters and candidates as “extremist groups.”
The original “right wing extremists”
There is no mention of Islam, Koran, Jihad, Muslims, Muslim terrorism, immigration as the feeder of terrorism and foreign espionage — in any of those documents, seminars, verbal utterances, formal speeches, court affidavits or press releases. A particularly thick, soundproof baffle hovers over the Obama/Holder Department of Racial Justice. Instead, what that giant, mailed fist seems to prepare for is what occupying armies, including Hitler’s, liked to call “Pacification Operations” — pacification of a conquered people. After all, how effective can Bushbama’s election of a new electorate be, unless the old one be at least tamped down, hard.
Other than hunting down “Constitutionalists,” all that law enforcement firepower serves, well, to enforce the law. And the more laws we have the more enforcement is necessary, capiche?
No one knows how many laws exist in the United States or what they all are. By April 2014, the US Federal Tax Code alone spread on 73,954 pages. In 2014, the Code of Federal Regulations had reached 165,000 pages (up from 54,00 in 1970). No one knows how many of those regulations entail criminal penalties. Just in the 15 days prior to Christmas, the Obama regime rushed through 1200 new regulations. And 40,000 new state laws took effect in 2014 alone.
Ask how many federal crimes are in the United States Code and you’ll get as many answers as answerers — but the number is close to 5,000. All of which means that anyone may be found in violation of some law or regulation, at any time. How convenient, for the “management” of dissent and as punishment for deviation from NeoMarxist orthodoxy.
Harvey Silverglate, lawyer, civil liberties advocate, and author of “Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent” asserts that the Federal Government routinely exploits the vagueness of many laws by identifying targets for judicial oppression and then uses its nearly-unlimited power to selectively charge them with crimes that they don’t even know exist. “The federal criminal justice system has become a crude conviction machine,” he writes in his book, “instead of an engine of truth and justice.”
Of course, once charged, it’s immaterial whether you’ll be found innocent at the end. The punishment — financial ruin — is wrapped in the process, regardless of its outcome.
“Constitution? I’ll show you constitution, you kulak swine.”
The federales’ raid on Gibson Guitar Corp. in August 2011 is a good example of Fascism with a Smile. A platoon of 30 SWAT-like cops from Homeland Security and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service [sic] kicked down Gibson’s door, served a sealed warrant that Gibson was not allowed to read then or now, seized and hauled away half-a million-dollars in tropical wood on the pretext — not supported by evidence then or now — that Gibson had broken foreign [sic] law in its import of the wood, and threatened the famed guitar maker with a federal offense and jail term it would incur each time it touched any of the guitars left in the plant.
To this day, no formal charges have been filed, no evidence presented. To regain its lease on business life, Gibson had to pay a $250,000 “settlement,” a $50,000 baksheesh to environmentalist groups, and suffer over $2 million in legal fees and the cost of being shut down for some period after the raid.
It later transpired that the only probable motive for this state mugging was that Gibson’s CEO Henry Juszkiewicz had supported Republican candidates, plus Gibson is in a “right-to work” state, Tennessee, and such freedom, like other freedoms, fills the commissars-in-charge with apoplectic rage. Apposite also are the recent shenanigans of IRS: the agency with unlimited power to destroy lives of those unable to provide a minute paper trail of their income or expenses. IRS “lost” tens of thousand of emails, including 28 months’ worth of its Obama-warrior boss, Lois Lerner, not coincidentally related to its targeted persecution of Tea Party-affiliated organizations.
To drive the spike in really deep, the U.S, justice system, including the U.S. Supreme Court in its recent 8-1 ruling in Heien v. State of North Carolina, gives all that paramilitary “law enforcement” machine a near-license to trample on Constitutional rights, abuse, manhandle and kill, scot free.
In case after case, judges cite “Qualified Immunity” and “Reasonable Mistake” to justify a ninja squad exploding your front door, treating you to a flash-bang grenade, shooting your dogs, shattering your arm and your wife’s jaw, slamming the whole household unto the floor and keeping it there, manacled, until it transpires that they were really after the forbidden thoughts of your “right-wing extremist” neighbor across the street.
Samizdat works to expose those outrages, e.g. here but that reaches a small number of readers; the rest of the low-information, brainwashed citizenry is unable to understand any of it, let alone act effectively.
The people resemble a large column of ants on a suburban kitchen floor, being sprayed with whatever aerosols are at hand. The industrious creatures stagger about in confusion, not quite dead but with their tiny receptors clogged by a directed mist from above: hair spray, deodorant, all purpose ecological cleaner, anything at hand — in this instance “racism,” “bigotry,” “intolerance,” “nativism,” “Islamophobia,” “country of immigrants” (or “European values” in Europe), “homophobia,” “compassion,” “justice,” “equity,” “sustainability,” “global warming” and so on.
Under that vaporous cloud, it’s impossible to look at any American social issue truthfully anymore, including discriminating when lethal or aggressive police tactics are proper, and when they are an evil crying out for justice or thuggery on behalf of a fascist Leviathan.
Hysterical demonstrations erupted at the end of 2014, mostly by Blacks but with a large participation of white Useful Idiots, after two police killings that happened to be of blacks but had nothing to do with racism. “Black Lives Matter,” the demonstrators’ posters read, and the R word spread like an angry plague from coast to coast, though it had nothing to do with reality.
In the first killing, a police officer in Ferguson shot and killed Michael Brown: a 300-pound notorious black criminal offender and hoodlum who assaulted the officer and tried to take away his gun. By any reasonable criterion, the policeman’s actions were provoked and justified.
The second killing — of Eric Garner in New York — also had nothing to do with race. It was a brutal enforcement of a totalitarian law of the corrupt State of New York that is jealously monopolizing the gold mint of taxing tobacco and is willing to send police goons to manhandle a schlemiel who was making a few dollars a day selling single cigarettes to passersby.
Black lives matter, but what about police lives?
But all such fine distinctions are beyond the corralled white sheeple. They stagger in the mist of purposefully-supplied misinformation, false memes, manipulated concepts, faked history, smoke and mirrors. Their ruling nomenklatura, if Democrat, promote the forces of destruction, and, if Republican, support the side that screams the loudest or pays the most.
Meanwhile, the intensely racist, ethnocentric African and Latin American minorities mask their inordinately high contributions to crime, welfare mooching, cultural degeneration and general Third-worldiness by loud accusations of white racism. Muslims follow that successful tactic, executing or aiding and abetting terror from within, and sabotaging via Islam and sharia propagation. If cowing by charges of “Islamophobia” doesn’t work, they use stupid whitey’s “progressive” laws against whitey.
It cannot be overemphasized that all that is happening all across the once-Christian West, with but superficial differences. We focused here on the United States, because a work listing all the depredations of the Liberal-Oppressive State, in every Western country, would be thicker than War and Peace.
As to the differences, it appears, for instance, that the kinetic overhang of violence over the American population is much greater than the one over Europeans and Australians. But that is only because all efforts to disarm Americans have failed, and the efforts to disarm the others succeeded. Besides, I’d like to see figures on how many penalty-carrying laws and regulations have been heaped by the European Commission on top of those that each member state already has on its books. And how many times demonstrators against the Islamization of Europe have been battered and drowned in the spit and din of crazed Antifa janissaries, with police standing by with a smirk.
Manuel Valls’s announcement of “strong new measures to combat the rise of Islamic extremism” — including the spending of €425 million that France doesn’t have, hiring of sixty imams that France needs like the plague, and “creating” 2,800 “jobs” that are a further burden on the exhausted French taxpayer, portends the arrival of a SWAT occupation army for Europe as well.
The final gambit
Every new act of Muslim terrorism or Black crowd criminality, or Hispanic narco-savagery or Chinese immigrant espionage, brings a tightening of the mailed fist choking the Euro-origin majority of Americans, her erstwhile owners. It’s more SWAT, more surveillance, more abolition of privacy and due process, more trampling on the Constitution. And more hiring of Muslims for sensitive security jobs, more pandering to Blacks, more opening of the Mexican border, more hiring of Chinese engineers and scientists in cutting-edge fields, more recruiting of women for police, fire and military combat jobs after the nth time they proved inadequate for such jobs.
State operatives whose direct responsibility is to protect the people against this multifarious avalanche increasingly concentrate on accelerating the avalanche while boosting intimidation and control of the victim population.
Ultimately, one must ask: Why are they doing it?
