We are 80 million couch potatoes and keyboard warriors with rifles in our bedroom closets. This is not a force to be reckoned with.

We are 80 million couch potatoes and keyboard warriors with rifles in our bedroom closets. This is not a force to be reckoned with. By Max Morton, a retired U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, former CIA paramilitary operations officer, and a veteran of multiple armed conflicts, revolutions, and contingency operations.

We are locked in a zero-sum game rebellion of the elites, who are intent on fundamentally transforming America into an authoritarian state with a single ideology and ruling class. …

Over the last few years, traditional Americans have watched, stunned, as their country makes a national descent into a post-truth, post-justice, post-American society. They find it hard to believe; society appears unmoored and events surreal. Why? Because they are the targets of an effective information operations campaign that, as in Isaiah 5:20, calls evil good and trades bitter for sweet. In fact, we are embroiled in asymmetric political warfare. …

Our federal security services were weaponized and converted into secret police enforcers for the Democratic Party. If you are a 60 or 70 year-old Trump political supporter with no criminal record, you get a televised, dawn FBI SWAT raid and a de facto life sentence for a contrived process crime. If you are a ruling class criminal, on the other hand, the Justice Department looks the other way and you get sweet book deals, million-dollar GoFundMe accounts, and high-paying gigs on establishment media news shows. …

The ruling elite have the power and they own the government and primary institutions in America. They are not going to give up this power without a fight, and we are not going to take back our country without suffering casualties along the way.

Expect ruling class institutions like the media, academia, and Big Tech to use “othering” tactics to smear and isolate traditional Americans in this struggle. Many will be falsely labeled extremists, insurrectionists, racists, and enemies of the state. Canceling and blacklisting will be the elite’s primary weapon and will result in job loss, financial deprivations, and social isolation. The national security apparatus will be unleashed onto ordinary Americans who will then be arrested, imprisoned, or worse.

As shocking as this sounds, this is how authoritarian regimes treat their undesirables, and you, by challenging their rule, will be declared an undesirable. These are the same things our founding fathers faced when they pursued independence from the crown. …

Remember, government informants and agents provocateur are an integral part of the political landscape. …

Somehow, America ended up with a ruling class. A government instituted by and for the people now considers the people its most dangerous enemy. Ruling elite, a term that was used derisively a few decades ago to describe the small self-important coastal aristocracy is now accepted to define a large wealthy class of robber barons and their loyal government apparatchiks. …

Right now, we are 80 million couch potatoes and keyboard warriors with rifles in our bedroom closets. This is not a force to be reckoned with. And the ruling elite know it because they control the information flow and own the power institutions. Traditional Americans will have to organize and band together to help each other and fight in this struggle. When we become 80 million strong, organized citizens with a tangible agenda, when we know where we want to go and what we want this country to look like, and when we can see the path to achieve this, only then will we become the lions we need to be to achieve victory.

The parasites have so much more time and energy to invest in politics. Most of us simply want to get on with our lives, our businesses, and our families. That asymmetry has been crucial to the predicament we find ourselves in.
