We are passing through extremely dark times. The recent solar eclipse is a mind-blowing expression of that. Decent and honest people are being attacked and destroyed while crooks and killers get away with almost anything. Why is that? It is difficult to give a definitive answer as this problem is multifaceted. The hacking of Red Ice TV website is a good example of what we are going through. The website is owned and run by a young couple, Henrik Palmgren and Lana Lokteff. They belong to a fringe movement of the political right, called the Alt-Right. You probably heard of that movement. Their website was taken down during the events of the Charlottesville rally called Unite the Right in which one person died and several people were injured after clashes between participants and protesters. I can say that although there are things that I would phrase differently, I do support the work that they do. They do an important service to the community by providing a platform to political dissidents and free thinkers in the United States and worldwide. Their resource is absolutely indispensable in these terrible times we are getting through. Yet their website was hacked, supposedly by the ‘antifa’, but it remains to be seen who did it. Here are some of my reflections on the subject.
First, anybody that took a look at their material could see that more than often they provide opportunities to people who are extremely critical of not only Muslims but also of Jews and⁄or Israel, and of non-white ethnic groups in particular. I believe that nobody is above critical thinking. If somebody has something to say about a certain group or a certain category of individuals, if it is sound and rational, we should celebrate that as a great contribution to society. But clearly, there are people who don’t think this way.
Second, and this is a crucial point, their website provide what we could call ‘free TV’. In effect, they often livestream political gatherings on their website, events that they participate in or that represent important milestones in the political sphere. As such, they may be seen as an unjust competition. There is absolutely no publicity on their website. Their activities are funded by their listeners and viewers through voluntary contributions. It goes without saying that big TV networks are probably frustrated and angry about Red Ice TV and other websites of the same type such as The Rebel, etc. Put yourself in the shoes of the big TV networks for a moment. They pump up millions and millions of dollars into their channels. But the more money they put in, the crappier the content gets. When I was a kid, there was only four channels on TV and for today’s standards, it was rather good. Now you have 500 channels and the content is terrible most of the time. Marshall McLuhan has written extensively on the nature of the media. ‘The medium in the message’, he was saying. Well, that’s the point. TV is like a bottle of sauce. The amount of sauce in it is finite. If you take that sauce and try to put into more bottles, it only dilutes the sauce more and more. At one point, there is no sauce anymore but water that’s what is happening with TV. Playing directly in this phenomenon is the obsession of specialization. When zapping, you can fall on a channel dedicated to the preparation of omelettes on July sunday mornings every Year of the Dragon. Well…I am joking but does it need to be that specialized? Probably not. As I have said, TV was much better when there was only a handful of channels and that was before specialization occurred.
So again, put yourself in the shoes of big TV network producers. You have a bunch of kids or young adults creating excellent TV, almost for free, and offering it for free to the world! Big TV is certainly not happy about that. The shows that independent media offer on the web are far better than the ones that you get from the ‘official’ TV. I am not saying that they are the ones who hacked Red Ice TV but let’s say that they wouldn’t mind, really. Independent media content creators make their own TV, film themselves with regular cameras and cellphones, and livestream or upload their shows on the web at a fraction of the cost…It is often said that big newspapers are losing readership, that it is falling year after year and that certain ones are on the path to bankruptcy. But it is also true for TV. It is very expensive to put on the air and the viewers are dropping it in favor of the internet that offers content that is interactive, new, bold and edgy. Personally, I don’t see any solution for big TV networks. They will continue to fall apart. TV, in its present form, is a medium that belongs to the past.
Another part of the problem is censorship and control. Just take a look at the number of hosts that have lost their jobs recently at Fox News for example. Fox News is good TV network, of right-wing orientation, that provides a platform for people that you don’t hear on the other networks. Guests come from the right-wing in general, they are Republicans, libertarians, conservatives, etc. But the content is made for a general public, not a smaller fringe like the Alt-Right or some other orientation. You have to be blind not to see that a certain ‘purge’ is going on at Fox that seems to follow the purge that is happening also at the same time in the Trump Administration. Those who were supporting Trump the most enthusiastically, such as Andrea Tantaros and Bill O’Reilly are no longer there. I am not getting into the specific reasons about why these hosts were fired or have resigned, I don’t work at Fox News so I don’t know what is going on there, all I am just saying is that a lot of them were supporting Trump and that is not a coincidence.
To come back at the hacking of Red Ice TV website, the hacking happened on the very day of the Unite the Right rally when they were en route to the event or just on arrival. I already talked about the rally itself so you can read my analysis in this previous article. We know that the State of Emergency was declared rather early as the event was starting. And that’s rather relevant here because in any standard State of Emergency law, or martial law, you may have provisions that allow the government to take control of communications. You don’t need a big IQ to figure out that somebody used the State of Emergency as a pretext to take down the site, or that somebody just waited for them to leave their apartment as the two hosts were departing for Charlottesville. I am joining two Youtube videos in which they themselves talk about the incident as they went through it and the possible leads of investigations that they have.
Why am I writing about that subject? Because although you may think that ‘it doesn’t concern me’ or ‘it is good for them if they did something wrong’ or ‘I am not getting involved’ or ‘it is not my concern’ you are next. If our elites can do that to a young couple, with a young baby, destroy their business and their livelihood and you don’t come to their defense, who is gonna take your defense when it is your turn? What happened to Red Ice TV and at the Charlottesville rally is unacceptable. What happened to the Jews during World War Two was a test-run. It is obvious that our globalist elites are preparing that same fate for all of us. Master crooks and thieves, of a caliber never seen, are at work. Regardless of the color of our skin, regardless of our religion, our values, our ethnic background, we will be subjected to the most brutal totalitarian regime that the Earth has ever known, unless we make a serious course correction. In effect, you have to understand that Hitler and Stalin didn’t have the technology that we have today. That technology gives the power to take total control. We have embraced technologies that allow our elites to know everything about every single individual anywhere on the planet. Our civilizational ship is a Titanic on a collision course and when the impact occurs, you are going to feel it, believe me. A few days ago, North Korea was able to launch a missile that flew over Japan and it was not taken down. But yet, we find the time and the energy to take down some websites and Youtube channels that express hate and racism…Don’t you think that our priorities are not the good ones? I will write a follow up on that article, focussing on tips and advice. For the moment, I will leave you with Henrik and Lana. Listen to what they have to say. Again, I repeat that the fact that you agree or disagree with them and their political ideas is not the issue. The issue is freedom of speech and our future as free men and women. If we don’t fight back against these very dangerous people who are trying to take control of the planet, our children and grandchildren will only have a life of misery and pain in slave labor camps. That’s what is looming on the horizon, folks.
That’s some journalism!
Finally, Fox News most popular ranter has been dropped, or should I say, flushed. Right-wing network Fox News’s controversial host will certainly be remembered for his unappropriate comments and most of the times outrageously unacceptable attacks on everything that is liberal, leftist or progressive. But it is his comments on the Democrats in general that will be most remembered and specifically this line: « will we have to shoot them in the head? » Saddly, as we all saw, they appear to have inspired mind-control job Jared Lee Loughner to commit his killing rampage in Tucson, Arizona. In the months just prior to the shooting, Sarah Palin had also the same bad taste to present electoral billboards with targets on it where Democrat representatives were elected, just by coincidence, and that included Arizona.
Beck made the announcement himself on his show Wednesday, April the 6th. Among the many reasons we could find to justify this firing-in-disguise are declining ratings, tense relations between Beck and Fox president Roger Ailes, increasing difficulties to find advertisers ready to present their products during that kind of show, an older audience, etc. But let’s face it, there are more obvious motivations to why he would have been fired. To start with, he decided to expose George Soros for what he was, i.e. a Jewish nazi collaborator in Hungary. And second and most importantly, his calls for the murdering of Democrats. Fox News, even as a right-wing media, can’t live with such a bad publicity. Beck certainly attracts good ratings, he is popular, o.k. But there are limits to everything. When he made those calls to the murdering of Democrats, combined with George Soros’s reaction to his public exposure as a nazi collaborator, that was it. It was too much.
In the end, Beck is lucky to have had the opportunity to work in the United States. In Canada, after publicly saying that people should fire in the head members of a certain political party, a tv host would have been sent packing right away. Nobody would have been able to keep his job here. But in the United States, where fascism is much more advanced than in Canada, in principle at least, somebody can be a complete asshole and show absolutely no form of respect to anyone and get away with it. Well, Beck got away with it but only for a while. From now on, he will make other things, hopefully far away from progressives and liberals. As well, I am proposing the video where he announces that he will leave the network. What is most curious is that when you listen to him, you almost believe him. So either he is sincere in his crazyness or he is a goddamn good actor.
