When I think of Resistance I look to history or Hollywood movies. With history the most obvious would be the French resistance movement to Nazi occupation. Hollywood has also done a great job educating millions of people with historical or “based on real event” type movies, and proceeding to use their own creative judgement to how things should have gone down. There is another resistance and it is by the powerful who use the lower class to overthrow the elected leaders. When did Sedition turn into something to do?
Resisting what? Is being allowed to vote, assemble, protest really being persecuted? Most don’t even know what they are protesting.
If you are being occupied and are at war it is easy to know what you are fighting for and against whom. Does that mean resistance is only during times of occupation? What about resisting policies either corporate or governmental? Does that count? Is it something that can be applied to both or has the former been hijacked to put a layer or moral justification around it when the police arrive?
So many examples have been brought forth by the MSM over the years that most will look at resistance as any challenge to authority.
Authority according to Wikipedia falls into 3 categories:
- Traditional Authority: Power legitimized by respect for long-established cultural patterns
- Charismatic Authority: Power legitimized by extraordinary personal abilities that inspire devotion and obedience.
- Rational-Legal Authority: Also known as bureaucratic authority, is when power is legitimized by legally enacted rules and regulations such as governments.
The rule of law is the cornerstone of a developed society and how the law is applied makes a big difference in the quality of life of the citizens. In democratic systems the citizens get to decide via their vote if the application of the laws are satisfactory or if a new leader is needed to right the ship as they say. In non democratic societies the citizens are forced to live under the rule of the leader and have no voice or avenue of indemnity. So when the French rallied under Jean Moulin to take back their country and over throw the Vichy government we think of these brave frenchmen as true resistors.
A group of scientists and lawyers working in Paris led by Boris Vilde began publishing a clandestine newspaper calling on the French people to resist the German occupation. The Musée de L’Homme group was infiltrated by a supporter of the Vichy government and as a result virtually all of the men and women involved with producing the newspaper were arrested and executed. It is claimed that one member of the group, Valentin Feldman, shouted at the moment of execution: “Imbeciles, it’s for you, too that I die.” from spartacus-educational
This brings us to today’s “resistance” movement in the United States. There are really 2 resistances going on right now. The first is from the electorate that voted for Donald Trump resisting Globalization and the other is from the MSM telling you to resist the former. The latter resistance movement has “orc-ified” the definition of resistance and has lied to the world about their true objectives. I pulled this term “orc-ified” from a essay I read about how once noble and valuable movements are high-jacked by the same elites who wish for the eternal preservation of their status.
Political Resistance has been carefully wrapped in this WW2 narrative of the common man vs the Nazi occupation. Fascism and Trump have been tied to the hip since 2016 and everyone who has seen a movie or read a book or has known a survivor that Nazi’s must be stopped at all costs! Russia has also been tied to Trump during this resistance movements early days alleging collusion. The MSM has tied 2 former Socialist governments that oppressed and murdered millions to Donald Trump. The irony that it is socialists fear mongering about what socialist governments did in the past is the ultimate projection. Anyone still believing that after 2 full years of unlimited resources that Donald Trump colluded with Russian or is turning the country fascist has been fully indoctrinated into the coming future if Socialists come to power in America again. Nothing has materialized that would actually fit the label have not yet been found. I have seen memes and comments about indictments from staffers but after closer review none of the charges or pleas involved Russian collusion and were more about past activities or getting caught in a perjury trap that would force a settlement.
I NEVER flipped against the president. What I did do, however, is expose the corruption of this “investigation” for the world to see. The legacy is what matters now, how history remembers these days. Silence during these critical days was never an option. All must be exposed.

When you see anti-trump protesters they are exercising their right to free speech and freedom of assembly. These are crucial rights that the world should offer to everyone. The way the protesters don’t connect the dots that if Trump was a Nazi then they would not be able to protest in the first place. Remember the french resistance was under occupation and that all rights were suspended and punishment was death. I don’t see that happening in the United States right now do you?
SO if it is not really a resistance then what is it?
Sedition – conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.
The whole concept of Resistance is steeped in the heroic efforts of citizens to fight off an oppressive regime and not because you lost an election. If the message and candidacy of Hillary Clinton was so strong then why did she have to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders. This is not a resistance movement that is promoted by the Democratic party, this is a continuation of the criminal behavior that has tarnished the party. The calls for violence, the harassment of public figures, the fact that Antifa has not been shut down is enough for the mainstream citizens to wake up and see the propaganda that Globalists are peppering them with everyday. There is a new movement within this resistance and it is called #walkaway. But don’t think this Resistance will be allowed to shine light to the lies they were told. No already reports from the usual suspects are crediting the #walkaway movement to Russian bots!
Going back to history I found an example of what is in store for America and maybe the world if this isn’t stopped. It was in Russia.
This group was born from the Narodnik movement which was a group of intellectuals who wanted to change society which was suffering under the largess of the ruling class in Russia during the 19th century. The word Narodnik means people and can be looked at one of the first populous movements in Russia. They had to meet in secret because if they were caught plotting against the Tsar they would be executed. They did not achieve much and were replaced by a more determined group who believed in force. So the first populist movement was hijacked by radicals who wanted to use terror and violence to achieve their goals which was to obtain power and rule Russia. They favored the model of a secret society and felt targeted assassinations was a valid tactic to achieve their goals. When possible they would terrorize the very people they claim to be saving because it would create enough outrage that can be harnessed against the established authority. Does any of this sound familiar? The Tsar had begun a series of reforms most likely as a result of the Narodnik movement yet it was not enough and he had to go. This same fate fell on Bashar al Assad as he too embarked on reforms due to popular revolt and that movement was hijacked into Daesh. Narodnaya Volya did assassinate the Tsar of Russia Nicholas II in March of 1881. The death of the Tsar did not achieve the goals of its members and as predicted was seen for what it was, a terrorist organization.
Narodnaya Volya’s activity became one of the most important elements of the revolutionary situation in late 1879–1880. However, ineffective tactics of political conspiracy and preference for terrorism over other means of struggle failed. At the turn of the century, however, as increasing numbers of former members of Narodnaya Volya were released from prison and exile, these veteran revolutionaries helped to form the Socialist Revolutionary Party, which revived many of the goals and methods of the former narodniki, including peasant revolution and terror.
There are similarities between late 19th century Russia and the United States today. The 1%, the Wall St. tycoons, Big Tech billionaires, think tanks and lobbying firms all represent the Tsar and the oligarchs. Peaceful attempts to shine light on atrocities perpetuated around the world against civilians online have been infiltrated and hijacked by groups pushing for violence and could end with the assassination of a leader which has been a constant meme since 2016. Years of martial law and anarchy will be replaced by what appears to be the NEW Democratic Socialists of America which have won seats in the house as of 2018. Will this new group resemble another socialist group that seemed about the people Socialist Revolutionary Party of Russia or the Nationalist Socialist Party of Germany? The former party split into the Bolshevk party and what then became the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Resistance to an oppressive authority who fails to represent its citizens rights is moral and steeped in history. Sedition by a group of anarchists who lust only for power and control must be exposed for what they are and opposed at every turn. Once in power these Socialist/Communist governments turn authoritarian and massacre all dissenters or non believers. How many posters and rallies will we see under that Socialist government? Be happy the current government still allows for dissenting opinion and tries to uphold the law that is its rational authority.
Are the left the same left that brought us USSR?
