Jon Rappoport: Viva La PoliceState! Or, How the Left Learned to Stop Worrying & Love the State

How “kill the pigs” became “only the police should have guns”

The one remaining piece from the 60s that has endured is hatred of big corporations. But gradually, a parallel mindset has developed. First, grudging acceptance of big government; then toleration; then admiration.

Now, the Left is all about big government and the “positive changes” it can make.

In the fabled 1960s, the cops were called pigs, and anybody on the political Left who wanted a ticket to the show knew that and mouthed it often.

At rallies, protests, and riots, people said: are the pigs here yet? I heard they were three blocks away. Wonder how many pigs they’re sending today? There! There they are! The pigs!

Now, on the Left, that tradition has morphed into: repeal the 2nd Amendment; turn in your guns; citizens with guns are satanic; the police will protect us; a private citizen with a gun is a killer and needs psychiatric lockdown; suspend that five-year old with the gun screen-saver.

What happened?

In 1968, if you asked a leftie college student whether a black man living in the inner city had a right to own a gun to protect himself against the cops, the answer, ten out of ten times, would have been yes.

Now, that leftie kid will be talking about the insanity of anybody owning a gun. Except for the cops.

I love this author



he's done a lot of independent research on MKULTRA and pharmaceutical industry cons, as well.

also, he actually used to be a MSM tv producer; believe he actually worked at CNN and perhaps also at CBS. so, he's definitely speaking from 1st hand experience, at least as far as his analyses of media propaganda is concerned.

Didn't know that

He also ran for congress. A house seat in the LA area in the 90s (which gives all sorts of perspective.)
