The Great Othering
Intolerance, by definition, is the unwillingness or refusal to tolerate or respect views, beliefs, or behavior that differ from one's own. Does this sound familiar? Recently, I've been reflecting on what's been going on in the world, and I'm stunned by how quickly we've regressed into inhumanity. “Never again” are the words we hear when the madness and evil of the Holocaust are uttered in polite company. We as a world will never again let ourselves be so indifferent toward our fellow man. What happened? How have we fallen so far in such a short amount of time?
The great othering is just a footnote in the plan of the great reset crowds' attempt to change our society. Pitting us against each other is the swiftest way to cause chaos and disrupt our daily lives. The amount of propaganda that has been systematically shoved down our throats these past several years is staggering. You hear about the next great crisis or the chaos churning below the surface everywhere you turn.
Just a few weeks ago, the local news station where we live was spinning everyone into a tizzy about the armageddon of a storm headed our direction. The weather authorities told us to prepare with extra food and water as the weather crisis was causing mayhem across the country. So we battened down the hatches and prepared for the coming threat, only to be met with what can only be described as a minor rainstorm—thunder not included.
COVID-19, a disease developed by the United States government with the assistance of the People's Republic of China, was released on the world because infuriatingly arrogant people tried to play God. Under whose authority did researchers conduct experiments to make already dangerous pathogens even more deadly? They lied about the origins of the disease because they believe you and I are stupid, and we wouldn't dare question their intellectual superiority.
The magic potion to save the world from this entirely “naturally occurring disease” was developed, tested, trialed, and approved for emergency use in less than a year. They mandated and bullied people worldwide to take the "vaccine" while not explaining any of the risk factors associated with the injection. We were coerced to accept it or lose our jobs, livelihood, money, safety, autonomy, and security. If you questioned anything about the concoction going into your own body—you were branded an anti-vax conspiracy theorist and reduced to a being less than human.
The new flavor of intolerance of the psychopaths is the Russian incursion into Ukraine. The virtue-signaling and othering began almost immediately. First, their slogans started: Stand with Ukraine, Putin's War, etc. Then we began to see the hypnotized masses start making some incredibly inflammatory statements.
An argument could be made that the above people are of no consequence. Still, the more significant issue is that they feel justified and morally supported to extol these harmful opinions. What exactly did Russian students in the United States commit for being categorically dismissed from their schooling? I wasn't aware that Russian students were the deciders of their country's foreign policy. Next, major businesses began virtue signaling to stay relevant to what the violent mob demanded of them.
One might ask themselves, why are the mainstream media (MSM) and major corporations doing this to the innocent people in Russia? Unfortunately, the answer is simple — they want you to see them as non-human. The xenophobia being spouted by everyone from the far-left to the far-right is exactly what the MSM and managers of this country want. They say it is us against them, good against evil, the world against Russia. So what does all this boil down to? Intolerance.
One of the most concise and coherent arguments about what is currently taking place in eastern Europe comes from Dmitry Orlov in his blog post "The Situation in Ukraine: Predictions vs. Reality." Orlov writes:
"People who are now speaking out against Russia's military action in the Ukraine need to answer a simple question: Where have you been for last eight years while the carnage in Donetsk and Lugansk was going on, while people were being burned alive in Odessa, while the Ukranian government organized terrorist operations on Russian territory and while the entire Ukrainian population has been forced to kowto to Americans and to speak Ukranian, most often against its will? If your answer is "I didn't know" then you have forfeited your right to an informed opinion on what's happeneing there now. Please keep that in mind and act accordingly."
I want to go through some of the information Orlov posted. After the violent coup in Ukraine in February 2014, the people of Odessa (which has a majority Russian population) disagreed with the violent uprising. The coup was conducted by far-right Ukrainian groups (with the support and assistance of the United States) and was perpetrated against the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych.
In early March 2014, over 1,000 Ukrainian rightists, led by a group called Right Sector, set ablaze the House of Trade Unions in Odessa, killing 39 people. Among those burned alive were women and children hiding in the building because they were afraid for their lives.
The ones in the building who were lucky enough to escape by jumping out of windows were surrounded by the rightest, clad in their swastikas and other fascist symbols, and beaten to death. The police stood by and did nothing. I want you to keep this in mind when you see people saying they stand with Ukraine—they stand with Nazis and murderers, and they are too stupid to understand even the slightest bit of relevant history.
I could keep going with this post, but I’ll digress. I'd like to wrap this up with a short thought experiment. I'm going to describe a situation, and you can think about the implications and which side you'd support.
It's been eight years since Texas succeeded from the United States with the help of Mexico. Since Mexico was the ethnic holder of the land, it made sense that Texas returned to its roots. Many proud Texans resisted the move, but they were quickly squashed, murdered, and terrorized into compliance by right-wing terrorist groups. It's been a tense situation in the region ever since because the United States still claims the territory.
The world media turned a blind eye because the United States has fallen out of favor in recent years because they mishandled the peak-oil crises and their inept leadership. As a result, no one came to the aid of the Americans when they asked other countries to intervene in the illegal actions of Mexico and Texas.
Recently it came out in the news that Mexico-Texas, with the help of China and Russia, has been building up their nuclear program. On top of the nuclear program, they have also opened over twenty biological testing labs in the region. The United States informed Mexico-Texas that the atomic weapons and labs constituted a threat to its national security, and any more movement to increase their nuclear arsenal would be met with swift and decisive military actions to neutralize the threat to the United States and its citizens.
The United States invaded Mexico-Texas two weeks ago and refuses to leave until they are guaranteed there will be no more nuclear weapons on their border, separatist towns in Texas who wish to be part of the United States are allowed, and Mexico-Texas must not be permitted to join any security pacts with other nations as this would be an existential threat to the security of the United States.
Which side are you on?
