White House Purposes Secret Police to Handle Bullshit Conspiracy

quote [ Blackwater founder Erik Prince, a former CIA paramilitary officer, and Oliver North want to make 80s-style covert action great again. ]

Whoa. WHOA. What the actual fuck?

Okay, so this is one of those "time to buy a gun" moments for me. I am a rationalist sceptic. As such, I am a total cunt you never want to debate with. However, one aspect of this is that I am fundamentally opposed to conspiracy theory.

This action here? This is the sort of thing that leads to a bloody tragedy. Throughout our entire modern history, every example of leadership that uses conspiracy theory to work has ended horribly.

Communist Russia and China said the enemy was the farmer, and then they starved.

Uganda said it was the Indian shop keepers. Then they lost nearly their entire economy when they expelled them.

Hitler was well, fucking Hitler.

It goes on and on. This though is how it starts.

If you are not shitting your pants, you should be. Our president doesn't believe he runs the government, and wishes to hold people accountable for that. This is fucking insane.

That's just it. The communist DID exist. So that paranoid fear had an outlet.

Compare that to the fear that Indians in Uganda were controlling the economy (they weren't.)
Compare that to the fear that Jews controlled Germany and Europe (they didn't.)
Compare that to the idea that the farmers were hiding food and thus counter revolutionaries (they weren't.)

When it comes to the Red Scare, most of it was crap but there really were spy games going on, and the "enemy" had nukes which tempered our response.

None of that exist in this scenario.
