“Here’s your chance to take to the streets and protest for a cause you believe in. Many thousands will be at your side. When the violence hits, you can run, go crazy, and hopefully escape police batons, water cannons, and flying bullets…”
This isn’t one company looking for actors and extras to protest against Trump in the streets of Cleveland, during the Republican National Convention next week. This is much bigger.
This is a year-long recruitment drive for extras.
You can’t have violence from just a few lone individuals on a quiet street in a city. It doesn’t play well for the media.
No, you need lots of extras and dupes and know-nothings to be there—people who commit no violence themselves, but give the impression of supporting it, people the cops can attack when the going gets nasty, people who will scream and scatter and run in every direction and throw trash and destroy cars. You need a full-blown theatrical production. For the news.
So we’ve had the US Attorney General, the US President, and Hillary Clinton meeting with Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders. We’ve had major media promoting BLM. We’re seeing violent street protests against police violence across the country, and we’re seeing violence against the police.
This pumps up recruiting for the RNC Cleveland Convention next week, in a city where local officials seemed to have just awakened to the scope of the problem they’re going to face. A few months ago, they put in an order for a several hundred bicycles for cops. Cops on bikes? Really? How about cardboard barriers, too, and free marshmallows?
On the one hand, in Cleveland, we have DHS and FBI and Secret Service officers visiting the homes of “activists,” asking them what their plans are for the Convention—a clear attempt at intimidating them. On the other hand, city officials are still trying, at this late date, to work out arrangements with other cities, so policemen can be brought in to ramp up security.
Clearly, there are agent provocateurs of various persuasions, blending in and among the BLM and pro-immigration groups. These agents would commit the incendiary violence. They would strike the match. To say they are a rerun of the old FBI Cointelpro operation is an oversimplification. The infiltrators could come from several different groups with different ideologies and agendas—but initiating violence is the common denominator.
There is also no telling what kind of blanket the DHS, FBI, and Secret Service are going to try to throw over Cleveland. Is it going to be intentionally light and tattered, to give the violence a chance to spread? Are emergency calls from the mayor of the city, to the governor, going to be answered casually, and with intentional delays? After all, the governor of Ohio is John Kasich, a Republican who ran against Donald Trump for the nomination and despises him. Will Kasich send in state-guard troops right away, or will he hold back? Will the feds, who are supporting Hillary, slow-play the arrival of their forces?
Judging from the way the city government of Cleveland has handled its budget problems over the years, as the city has sunk into further debt and poverty, there is no reason to expect local security for the Convention to be anywhere near sensible or adequate.
Meanwhile, the recruiting for extras and actors continues. People-protestors are needed in the streets. People who avidly support: Bernie Sanders, BLM, unlimited immigration, gender equality, politically correct speech, gun control, the upcoming Globalist trade treaties, more jobs leaving America, the federalization of polices forces, the manufacture of running shoes overseas in slave-labor camps, love and unity, it takes a village, free cell phones, free tuition at illiterate colleges, Hobbits, Harry Potter, the EU, cheap lead-based imports from China, the full CDC schedule of vaccines, more chewing gum for the masses, and the imminent landing of humane messiahs from Andromeda.
Climb on board. Fill out the crowds in Cleveland next week. Be there. Be an extra. Be an actor when the violence begins. Feel the surge of adrenaline.
You’re a dupe.
You’re there because somebody is willing to risk your life in the service of a greater cause: creating chaos, and eventually coming in behind it to install order that sucks away rights and freedoms from everyone. Exactly what you want, right?
When freedom disappears, that must mean more free government goodies are on the way, correct? Those goodies assuage the loss of liberty.
“I’ll take three gallons of ice cream in return for my First and Fourth Amendments.”
“Wait, I also want professional help with my social media, so I can broadcast messages about killing people I don’t like.”
Sign up now. Free hotel rooms in Cleveland while supplies last. Practice your facial expressions of extreme anger and outrage for the news cameras. Some signs available, but make your own. Just be on the streets. Help fill out the crowds. Put your body on the line. The advancing police state needs you.
The upcoming Cleveland production isn’t about Bernie or the BLM or pro-immigration or Trump or the Republicans. It’s about orchestration.
It’s about planned theater. It’s about rigging conflict and rigging a formula which will appear to demand greater clamp-down on everyone living in America.
And it’s also about using the residents of poverty-stricken inner cities across America, who have descended to new lows of desperation, as pawns in the whole drama. Pawns are sacrificed.
On a final note, I’ll present what’s called a Clue. During the entire history of the so-called federal War on Poverty, which was launched in 1966, and after the estimated expenditure of two trillion dollars, what is the result we see now?
We see a worsening of life.
During this “humane” campaign, when did a President or high government official highlight a single stunning individual success? I’m talking, for example, about an inner-city businessman who, against all odds, created a thriving local company.
When did we see that person held up for praise, not just for a moment, not just at a White House photo-op, not just at a local city picnic—but for the purpose of learning, for the purpose of understanding how success is achieved—so that others could follow in those footsteps?
After all, isn’t this kind of success the prime concept in winning the war on poverty? Isn’t this the path? Isn’t this the way out of poverty, as opposed to the expansion of eternal dependence on the government?
But you see, actual success and victory were never the goals. The goal was the creation of a permanent underclass, which could be provoked and manipulated and used for exactly the kind of violence we’re seeing now.
Violence, then clamp-down, then more loss of freedom, and the expansion of a police state. Follow the bouncing ball.
The cynical exploitation of the upcoming Cleveland Convention is just one more step in that progression.
And street actors and extras are needed.
People who won’t ever know what role they’re actually playing in a piece of live theater they’ll never understand.
