We’re Up Against a Fucking Cult.

The cult of white supremacy threatens to ensnare us all.

If only they’d drawn a bright red smile on this hand it would have been the perfect image.

Two things happened today.

First, I was led to the story of Keith Raniere and the sheer fuckery he was able to commit with his company NXIVM. Like this dude basically sold a bunch of white people some lies and told them the key to happiness and growth was his dick.

I shit you not people.

But what caught me was listening to the way these women’s trauma and pain were used against them as a means of empowering them. Like “yeah you are so special you can endure tremendous amounts of pain.” One of the women went so far as to describe an “overwhelming feeling of love” for her tormentors.

It was fucking disgusting.

But the thought made me zero in on a segment of society we seem to be in constant battle with. And the idea of how cults operate lead me to the formation of an idea as cemented by this article right here.

White Supremacy is a cult.

This is why you can’t argue with any of them. It’s so deeply embedded inside of their brains that any mention that they might be in a cult causes massive cognitive dissonance for them.

How else do you explain being able to justify the murders of human beings in cold-blood by the very people who are supposed to be protecting and serving us?

Unless…we had it all wrong all along.

They were never meant to protect and serve us. No, quite the contrary they were meant to serve and protect this fascist ass system. Which is why we say without question that ALL cops are bad.

Now I am not speaking for the members of rescue services that do great and honorable work in our society on the front lines daily. You all save lives. But your blue brethren are drunk with power and have the backing of a deranged cult behind them. If you can’t see the problem with that, wait till it’s your family member on the other end of that fiery discharge. And their blood is on the street, a halo of red marking their innocence of being worthy of murder. Wait till it joins the blood of the others on that long ass list and cries out to you, screaming “they can’t breathe”.

To the remnant of you who remain on the fence about the society we live in, I present this idea to you.

Are you really comfortable in a society where officers are allowed to injure citizens- like that 75 year old man in Buffalo who was pushed so hard his skull cracked- with impunity?

Are you willing to gamble with your life that one day it won’t be you on the other end?

What you going to do when they come for you?
