‘We’ve got lazy and let things get out of control’
Tap quotes Alex Jones, whilst affirming the obvious wisdom to acknowlege fair-do's, over woolly distractive thinking and "better not".
Infowars has an army of promotors and in some ways I look for others, doing similar... or - here’s my plea - somewhat, different, activism.
What’s mad is when comment-ers, or worse writers/broadcasters, feel the need to put - others in the fight - down.
If they wrote specifics, said/what, fair enough - but dismissing someone as a ‘shrill’ in almost all cases, because... they’re not anti-Zionist enough/publicly at all. It’s being ‘religious’. Verbatim quotes and critiques are interesting and learning, generalised slurs, bore and backfire.
A certain strain of Evangelicals see this as there duty.
“Go into all the world and...” teach..? What they already know ‘you’ know, not said with any consideration, possibly balance, with anything that might elaborate or contribute something new. Always dismissive and in the need to make that ‘stand’. Clear. Already was.
It doesn’t even achieve the goal. ‘Thou doth protest too much...’ as the Bard/s(?) said.
Cliché over content. Sectarian is the word. And who, and what kind of people are best known for this? Those feeling the pressure, feeling disenfranchised from a wider and more popular position: Not one that’s necessarily not in agreement, but one that puts strategic use of communication over inner desires to nag and moan. I.e. best not.
Anti-Zionists and anti-’accepting gay people in church’ are the most distinctive practitioners. The CSA front can also get a bit too quick to condemn dissenters, or those looking for increased qualification.
Having written this, at least those ‘calling out’ x/y/z, have some passion and anger, urgency and angst on display. Rather that than not.
Oh well let's post Israel-loving Alex (the hours of broadcasting isn’t there to confirm).
About to post and Gordon writes this on the Tap post:
’These type of people I call eggers in that they talk frantically to work people up to a state of frenzy in the hope of inciting action yet they are the first to shoot the bullet and deny any involvement once trouble starts. There are other ways of getting your message over, take for example Mahatma Gandhi.’
Oh well, judge for yourself. I’ll leave commenting there/doing one, to link this.
Tap (Henry), is a strident and - think ‘Jesus’ - militant voice but he will go with what ‘he’ thinks, regardless of the crowd, or lets say his overall position might be. Confound colleagues.
Like Alex. (Or so, I say).
Yet to watch the video (above) but don't expect a 'state of frenzy' maybe a roar in the heart to action.
