This "rant" is for me! (You, too?)
Yes, they glided over the most secure border in the history of humankind... with lawn mower engines on their backs! Huh?
This email / post was constructed… for me! That’s right, for pure ol’ me!
You see, when I revamped my personal blog, into this Bear’s Bulletins brand, I had to come to terms with a nasty little annoying trait of human nature:
9 out of 10 folks on this list — any list, really — err on the side of sweeping hard truths and critical-thinking… under the rug.
The majority just want the Mary Poppins spoon-fed version of a story; they have a natural inclination for supporting others (i.e., the next new distracting thing to ‘Stand For…’) vs supporting themselves! Or defending their own personal freedoms.
So, when I get into discussions with my local peeps — i.e., whether a business acquaintance I often see, or a friend at the local coffee shop — I’m usually the one asking the curious uncomfortable questions.
Questions about (drummmmm roll…. yes, you guess it…) themselves!
What causes you to see it that way?
What does this particular outside event have to do with____ (fill in the blank with their excuses and rationalizations).
Who do you look up to, to give you contrarian perspectives? Who helps you to see the gray areas in life?
How do you practice critical-thinking around_____ (x topic)?
Yes, these style of questions are uncomfortable AF! (For them!)
Still, I’m the Curious George of my time! With just more of a Bear demeanor ;)
Why, as an American, I don’t care about ‘Standing For…’ Israel or Palestine… or Ukraine… or... anything else!
This leads me to my FAIR WARNING above ☝️!
I’m effectively using my space here to time-capsule this speech by Andy Frisella — his controversial raw pep-talk, from roughly around the ~15 minute mark (where I have started the video for you) to the ~45 minute mark.
About my question….
Andy, via his video podcast this morning, somehow transported himself into my brain, stole my thoughts, and expressed them ever so eloquently. More so than, I think, I could ever put in writing.
The ‘War’ propaganda is about to ramp up in ways you haven’t seen in decades. The Antisemitism rhetoric will be in full force. And you’ll be brainwashed into accepting so much political gaslighting, that it will make your head spin off its axis.
🎬 Instead of all that b*llsh*t, I implore you to….
Share this post, with the video above. And hear what Andy is saying between the `15-min and `45-min mark of the full video.
To entice you to LISTEN — and LISTEN CLOSELY, here are some of the comments that came through the YT video feed:
“DJ - you have turned into a beast when breaking down these articles & tying the evidence together. Andy you translate your perspective into words better than anyone. I stand with America first and all my brothers and sisters of this country. You guys were on point today. Thank you both.”
“Phenomenal episode. Gave me chills. Thank you for being real af.”
“This was one of Andy’s best shows and I agree that the entire federal government needs to be dismantled. Starting with the administration state. Today’s show was pure 🔥!”
