I was, as the Covid lockdowns, tyrannies, and indignities progressed with nary a peep from the once proudly free populaces of the great states of the West, growing despondent.
How could free men, men whose cultural traditions are grounded in revolution, independence, and individualism, go along with such horrendous tyrannies without raising their voices, much less leveling a musket at the Redcoats? Did they not care that an authoritarian regime is treading on them?
But, now it’s over. Now the revolt against the Covid tyrants has finally begun.
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!
Now that that glorious song is stuck in your head, take a minute to look at what’s happening around the world.
In the US, workers are quitting en masse rather than go along with unconstitutional experimental vaccine mandates.
Nurses, cops, soldiers, Amtrack workers, and now even pilots are resigning their positions or unclipping their wings, quitting work earlier than they intended rather than go along with an unconstitutional science experiment.
As a result, thousands of flights have been canceled, there aren’t police to patrol the leftist communities that hate them, and hospitals are shutting down as thousands upon thousands of nurses walk out rather than comply. Huzzah!
Yet better, citizens across the United States are leaving their abodes and standing up for what is right in public! Even New Yorkers have gotten in on the action:
It’s even better across other parts of the Western world.
In France, Les Mis-like riots and street protests have rocked the cities as citizens decide to stand and fight rather than comply with tyrannical mandates. Hundreds of thousands are uniting against tyranny!
Similarly, there were clashes in Belgium:
Protests in Canada:
And massive clashes in Australia, the nation that has locked down the hardest:
Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men?
Normally insouciant Westerners are finally recovering a sense of their rights and realizing that freedom itself is at stake.
So, rather than let the bright light of freedom be snuffed out by tyrannical busybodies like the Dear St. Fauci, they’re standing up for their rights.
Critical workers in the medical, transportation, and public service sectors are walking out, no longer willing to serve their spiteful masters.
Furious citizens are revolting against the tyrants that kept them locked down for months, forcing them to watch their small businesses whither on the vine as Antifa and BLM goons roamed free and massive corporations raked in record profits.
In short, free people are remembering that freedom isn’t free and are finally fighting for their birthright as heirs of the Western tradition. Like the angry Parisians in Les Mis, the spat upon and downtrodden, the hated untouchables and deplorables, are finally rushing to the barricades to defend their rights and take a stand for liberty.
Hopefully, their brave efforts will prove more successful than those of the banner-waving revolutionaries in Victor Hugo’s greatest work.
Now, before you savage the comparison, what is the historical background of Les Mis?
Here’s what Stanford University says:
The July Revolution two years earlier had put the Orléanist monarchy on the throne, under the popular “Citizen King” Louis-Philippe. Popular for awhile, that is. Despite his unpretentious manners and a character that Les Miz author Victor Hugo commended as “good” and “admirable,” the income gap widened and the conditions of the working class deteriorated. By the spring of 1832, a deadly cholera epidemic had exacerbated a severe economic crisis.
Other than that “good” and “admirable” character bit, which surely couldn’t describe President Asterisk, doesn’t it remind you of today?
Our incompetent ruler, “Scranton Joe,” pretends to be a man of the people while really working to enrich his wealthy donors and Wall Street buddies at the expense of the common working man. Lockdowns, absurd mandates (can’t forget those $700,000 fines for not checking if employees are vaxxed!), Chinese flu hysteria, increased regulations, and uncertainty brought about by calls for drastic tax hikes have exacerbated already bad conditions, pushing our economy to the brink. Millions are out of work, the jobs reports get worse and worse, and hundreds of thousands of formerly prosperous small business owners are left facing the specter of poverty thanks to “Scranton Joe” taking a sledgehammer to the economy.
Our ruler licks his ice cream cone as millions of illegal immigrants pour across the border (without being vaccinated, strangely enough), corporations use their massive power to snuff out competition from small businesses, and Wall Street oligarchs push the Fed to continue its inflationary policies and keep asset prices high. High enough that we peasants can’t afford to buy a house (but can rent one from the Blackrock moneylenders!) and are likely to suffer the effects of yet another massive recession.
I would say that now is the time for the barricades, but it appears that I don’t need to. All those brave souls quitting their jobs rather than get the jab already get it, as so the patriots waving banners and signs in the streets.
