☕️ KILL SUPERMAN ☙ Tuesday, November 21, 2023 ☙ C&C NEWS 🦠
An important and uplifting holiday message about the growing conservative counter-revolution and how to avoid deep-state psyops.
Good morning C&C, it’s Tuesday! Today I am grateful for something else that isn’t here anymore: the absence of a real-life holiday horror movie of government lies and fearmongering, broadcast 24x7 in alarming ads, warning me that my own relatives will probably kill me this Thanksgiving — accidentally! — by coughing, sneezing, or even just thinking about pulling their masks down.
And I’m grateful to be spared all the mendacious, taxpayer-funded prophecies from the government’s peyote-smoking, paranoid hypochondriacs, with their bleak warnings about a “dark winter” of death, disease, and other demented, white-coat nonsense.
So far the lack of panic has been a refreshing improvement. I bet this year you probably didn’t even notice the government’s halfhearted efforts to sell a few more defective vaccines before the clock runs out:
The comments to that CDC tweet were priceless. The CDC may have to shut down its twitter account soon, because it doesn’t seem to be getting much support these days.
There is a LOT going on in the world. But today, we must break from our regularly scheduled programming, so that I can apply a clearly-overdue course correction. A few of you really need to hear this, and the rest of you need to have it in your rhetorical arsenal as we head into the holidays.
🗞💬 SUPERMAN RAISES HIS FICTIONAL HEAD AGAIN 💬🗞
Yesterday I posted the terrific news that previously-purple Louisiana had elected a supermajority, “hard-right” state government, and that previously-socialist Argentina had elected a very colorful “far-right” libertarian. It was all-around great news.
But it wasn’t great enough for some folks, who remained depressed. Behold, Exhibit A:
The complaints about Argentina’s new “right wing” president being a secret WEF stooge or undercover mole even grumbled into the C&C comments. I won’t call anyone out, because I love you all, but some folks more unfairly dismissed Louisiana’s entire Republican state government as a bunch of do-nothing RINOs who won’t ever change anything.
Every. Single. One. Of. Them.
And I thought, wow, these deep-state psyops are incredibly powerful. They even penetrated the skeptical, sarcastic narrative armor that we’ve carefully built around C&C. Obviously, we can put good news right in front of people’s faces — but they’ll still follow the deep state’s emotional manipulation and get even more depressed.
So today I will walk you through the logic. Again! To gently correct those who’ve lost their way. To prepare the rest of you to gently persuade friends and relatives this holiday season. And to counteract the sinister deep state programming robbing everybody of joy and hope.
Missing the Point
Some folks badly missed the point yesterday. The good news wasn’t that some guy named Javier Milei was elected president of Argentina. Forget about Javier’s WEF connection, there are other reasons to doubt him if you want to. For one, the guy looks and sounds, well, kind of nuts. Possibly unstable. I mean, just look:
So why would we celebrate Javier Milei’s presidency? We don’t even know him. He might be a WEF mole. Or he could just be a chainsaw-wielding lunatic. Who knows? So it’s not Javier.
The good news was that millions of previous socialism-loving people in Argentina just voted for chainsaw guy over more socialists.
The good news was about regular Argentinians, not about Javier Milei. The people have changed. There is a new non-socialist spirit loose in Argentina! A new spirit among millions of regular folks who are definitely not WEF moles. The sea change in their thinking was the good news. Argentinians are — finally! — sick of the socialists; so sick they’ll even try Javier Milei, the only guy crazy enough to run as a conservative this cycle.
How about Louisiana? Do you really think yesterday’s post was celebrating the specific candidates who got elected there? It’s almost insulting; it’s like my post failed so badly that some people thought I was endorsing a slate of elected officials, instead of happily reporting how a whole state’s voters have evolved from purple to red.
I have no idea whether any Louisiana Republicans are RINOs. (And that’s a horrible term, we need to stop using it, but more on that in a second.) Without evidence they’re moles, I assume they are regular folks who lean conservative and have various opinions about things — which mostly but don’t always agree with my opinions.
I do know that at least one of them is pretty exciting, young, apparently came out of nowhere, and has already and unaccountably made a huge difference in national politics:
Mike Johnson is about to be flayed alive in the national political crucible, and he may or may not survive. Who knows, maybe he’s a WEF mole! Maybe he even uses a chainsaw. But so what? We’ll support him while he’s producing good political fruit. And if he falls, we carry on packing our local pipelines full of good conservatives, some of whom will eventually surge into federal offices.
In other words, if Johnson flames out, nothing changes. The work continues. The good news yesterday wasn’t about Johnson or about any other Louisiana Republican who got elected.
The good news is voters in purple Louisiana have sent the democrats packing. Florida, formerly purple, also now enjoys a new Republican supermajority — and a new, +700,000 Republican voter registration advantage. Purple North Carolina also achieved a supermajority this year, and has been happily overriding its democrat governor ever since. So, it’s terrific news that purple Louisiana voters have shifted to bright red.
Meanwhile, no purple states have shifted blue.
How good was yesterday’s news? Well, the growing Republican state supermajority advantage is panicking democrats. Here’s a New York Times headline published just one week ago on the 14th:
According to the NYT article, even though some folks on our side complain that all Republican officials are useless RINOs, the democrats consider them extreme:
“Republicans in these (supermajority) legislatures are not moderate,” Ms. Williams said. “They are governing very extremely, and we need a stopgap, and it is critical that governors have veto power where their legislature and their legislative maps are so gerrymandered.”
Are we clear? The good news yesterday wasn’t that anybody specific got elected somewhere. The good news was that their elections evidenced the emerging conservative counter-revolution among regular voters. Regular voters are getting more conservative.
Forget About Superman
The real reason people act cynical about candidates “not doing anything” or being WEFFED-up or being moles or RINOs or whatever, is because those cynical people harbor a childlike belief in the Superman theory of politics. They’re hoping a political Superman will fly in and save them. And every time the next person they thought would be Superman fails to actually be Superman, they become bitterer and bitterer, and ever more susceptible to deep-state mind control.
Just forget about Superman! Superman is for kids.
If you are a Christian, the Superman fantasy is classic idolatry. Only Jesus will save you, not any man. If you’re secular, harboring a Superman fantasy is a kind of childlike mental illness. The Founders created three branches of government because they didn’t trust any one person. You shouldn’t either.
The deep state loves the Superman fallacy. It’s one of their best weapons. The fallacy helps the deep state elect candidates they want elected, and it helps them undermine candidates they don’t like. Have you noticed that only Republicans are susceptible to the Superman fallacy? Democrats will elect hoodied mental patients like John Fetterman every time.
During the campaign, Fetterman’s opponent was mercilessly savaged as a fake conservative. Not Superman.
Tempting though it is to believe, the difference is not because democrats have different brains than Republicans. The difference is only because the deep-state aims that particular psychological weapon at Republicans. Resist!
Don’t just forget about Superman: Kill Superman.
A House Divided Cannot Stand
On June 16, 1858, while accepting the Illinois Republican party’s nomination for U.S. Senator, Abraham Lincoln gave his famous “House Divided” speech, in which Lincoln prophetically argued that a half-free, half-slave nation cannot long endure. Nowadays, even Lincoln is hated by some conservatives. Even Lincoln wasn’t Superman.
Lincoln’s eponymous quote was borrowed from Jesus Christ, who said, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand." (Matt. 12:25.)
A Republican Party divided against itself cannot stand.
The Superman fallacy — and all its psyop components — are designed to divide the Republican Party against itself. For example, I strongly believe that the ‘RINO’ label is a deep-state invention. It’s a slander designed to weaken grassroots Republican support for a particular candidate. Even though I often do it myself, out of bad habit, we probably shouldn’t use that label. It’s harmful deep-state manipulation.
It isn’t helpful to think of public officials as RINOs or sell-outs or compromised (even if they might be). It is much more helpful to consider them as either effective, ineffective, or harmful — and that’s it.
Don’t Be a Killjoy
When C&C reports that the conservative counter-revolution has captured another state or even a socialist country, and someone focuses instead on the potential future failures of a particular candidate, it furthers the deep-state’s goal of watering-down the wins and corralling conservatives into feeling like a minority party, instead of confidently flexing our political muscles.
Folks are aiding and abetting the deep state when they publish the Superman fallacy.
What should people do instead? First, they should recognize and celebrate the real wins. Argentina and Louisiana are wins. If folks want to caution against putting too much trust in a candidate because of their old WEF connections or whatever, great! Just be fair: Caution against putting too much trust in any candidate, regardless of whether they are WEF-connected or not.
When you see someone being sour, or falling for the Superman psyop, gently remind them to focus on the reality that there are no good politicians. There are only real people with messy thoughts and lives just like the rest of us. Remind complainers (nicely) that we’re celebrating a leftist country rejecting socialism; we’re not celebrating some colorful chainsaw character.
As for Javier, we’ll have to wait and see what he does before we celebrate. If and when it happens, we’ll be celebrating whatever Javier did. Not him. He’s not Superman.
Enjoy all of yesterday’s great news and the progress it represented. I hope that this time I have explained it clearly. Let me know what you think in the comments.
