Count Me Out?
Cults of Personality
This is getting beyond absurd and I am not sure if I want any part of this nonsense if people plan to continue on this way.
Firstly, Alex Marinos, who, without question, defends someone who teams up with the Pentagon to send equipment to Nazis in the Ukraine and then moans that everybody except he, Elon Musk, has mixed up what Nazi means.
Change Elon Musk with any other business figure and describe their actions being akin to Musks (co-operating with the Pentagon to supply Nazis in the Ukraine with goods) and could the spell of Elon Musk blind one to the facts? This is a person collaborating with Nazis. In 2022 - a light charge, apparently. As with Gates at the start of the pandemic, millions of people are being fooled by a name rather than evaluating their actions.
What is Alex doing mingling with the likes of Brook Jackson and others? Has everyone become so uncaring about serious atrocities being committed by Nazis and the problems associated with those that support them and also support supporters of Nazis? This is the world I am expected to inhabit with other people trying to do journalists jobs for them?
Everybody is exhausted. Few care. Not many change. And yesterday the movie industry, after two years of supporting segregation (where were all you so-called champions for diversity these past two years as people have been banned from seeing and making movies due to a medical choice? Sitting on piles of cash in denial?) are now cheering on a proper fascist in Ukraine. Jewish people in the industry somehow have to work with these people. Good luck with that! Maybe it’s the wake up call everybody in the industry deserves for being quiet about the crimes against humanity levelled against innocent unvaccinated people who barely register as human to that crowd.
And then there’s the cult of icons in the “covid skeptic community” or whatever people are calling it.
Here’s CJ Hopkins. A person so out of touch with what life is like for proper working class people in Canada (where a real genocide has been occurring for two years, and no one wants to speak about it) and the ravages that covid policy has had in the UK that he believes, or his followers believe, he is some sort of spokesman for us all. He’s not. He’s an infant that cannot debate so tells people to “suck his ass” - stirring words of wisdom. I’ll stick with Cormac McCarthy or nearly any other author, thank you. Yet his fans seems to cling to his every word. If people like CJ Hopkins can kvetch all the time about being censored - when he’s not, and instead has a mix up with Norton Life-Lock, for instance, to try to draw some attention to his work and make more money because, as everybody knows, living in Berlin as an American means this guy is truly struggling to make it. What a miserable human being. I would have some sympathy for him, considering what the last two years has done to us all - but the abused has become the abuser in CJ Hopkins case, so he absolutely deserves to be called out for it. And ignored.
One sort of has to wonder what the point is at this stage. What is being saved, precisely? How is winning any of this going to lead to a good future for anybody? Better than a bunch of fascists attempting a one-world government, sure - and then what?
If people cannot even tell Alex Marinos, a guy that defends Nazi supporters, to get lost, and if people are looking to temper-tantrum types like CJ Hopkins, and not a single journalist, save for a handful with smaller audiences, are capable of covering genocide - I mean, good luck with it all. Not really sure what can be done here. Continue to investigate the past and what have you, but there are others who do this well.
Until something clicks and people start using their heads, I don’t know what to say. For two years I’ve witnessed precisely what good old Werner Herzog states - 1/3 of ones neighbours will sit back and do nothing, including friends and family, and another 1/3 will try to starve and freeze one to death for not injecting a bio-weapon, and some of those resisting this nightmare cannot even tell Nazi supporters to shuffle off, cannot tell the difference between socialism and fascism, and follow characters that sit in luxury whilst ignoring, speaking down to, and doing little to help the class of people they claim to be a part of.
“He said the right dreams for a man in peril were dreams of peril and all else was the call of languor and of death.”
