FIRST & FOREMOST . . . During these Exceptionally Hard Times, I Can’t Thank Many of the Readers of Galganov.com Enough for your Financial Support. This has Been & Continues to Be a very Difficult Period for all of us, Including Me, who is having to Deal with all Manner of Internet Challenges to Keep this Website (Galganov.com) Going as Well as I Can.
Without Your Help . . . It Would Have Been Much Tougher Than It Is & Has Been.
The Above Headline . . . “Pro Trump Supporters Defy Stay-Home Orders”, which was on Canada’s CTV News Network Today (April 17, 2020) – Is Fake Propagandized News.
The Headline Is Real . . . The Integrity Of It Is Not.
CTV – Which is Canada’s Most Watched Television Network, has No Idea if all the Men & Women Protesting the Draconian, Anti-Democratic & Anti-Constitutional Laws Passed, because, of the China Virus were Trump Supporters.
Is it Even Remotely Possible, that some of the Tens of thousands of Freedom Loving Protestors from across America, who are Fed-Up with Governors & Mayors, who are Violating Constitutional Rights & Freedoms . . . Could Not Have Been Just Trump Supporters?
Or Is CTV News Somehow Privy . . . to Their Own Reality, that the Only People in the United States of America who Cherish their Rights & Freedoms, which have been Guaranteed by the United States Constitution are Conservative Trump Supporters?
If So . . . What Does That Say About The Rest Of The USA?
The Media Is The Media . . . Corrupt & Misleading – Whether in the USA or in Canada. Some People will Read this and Say, well – the Headline Might not be Entirely Accurate, but it Really wasn’t that Bad either, since we might Assume that Many if Not Most of the Protestors were Indeed Trump Supporters . . . But Why Should We Assume That?
And Even if 100% of the Protestors were Trump Supporters . . . So What? Does it Make these People somehow Evil, Dangerous, Wrong-Headed, Racist or even Anarchists – As The Media Attempts To Always Paint Trump Supporters?
It Certainly Gives The Impression . . . That if you’re Willing to Defy the Law of Government & March on a Government Institution – Waving American Flags & Don’t Tread On Me Flags . . . And Carry Home Made Posters Declaring Freedom . . . Then You Must Be Some Kind Of Anarchist Nut-Job Who Has To Be A Trump Supporter.
The Subtleness Of The Media Is Terrifying. It’s Not Necessarily What They Say. It’s How They Say It.
The Media Sets-Up The Narrative . . . and Through Gentle Propaganda, Carefully Crafted Words, Half-Truths, Slanted Truths & Repetition, the Media Leads the Consumer of the Media’s News . . . To A Destination Of The Media’s Making.
Therefore – If You Take To The Streets & Protest Against The Government – You’re A Right-Wing Anarchist & Trump Supporter.
I BELIEVE IN THE RIGHT OF PROTESTS & THE RIGHT OF THE INDIVIDUAL:
There Is No Question In My Mind – None Whatsoever, that this Coronavirus (China Virus) is Highly Virulent & Lethal to Many . . . But There Is Every Question In My Mind . . . About the Need for the Government to Scare the Piss-Out of Hundreds of Millions of People – and to Impose Draconian Laws, which Arbitrarily Removes all the Freedoms of the People at the Sole Discretion of Government, whether it be the Federal Government, State, Provincial or Municipal Government.
I Never Want To Ever Hear These Words Again . . . “Social Distancing”.
To Me . . . The Real Heroes are the Men & Women who Show-Up for Work Every Day, to Supply all Manner of Products & Services for the Continuance of our Society.
I Don’t Need A Television Doctor, A Bureaucrat Or A Politician . . . to Lecture me Day-In & Day-Out on How to Wash my Hands, How Many Friends I’m Allowed to Stand with, Whether I should be Allowed off my Property to Walk my Dog, Jog or Shoot Hoops in the Park.
I Don’t Need Television Doctors Or Politicians . . .Telling me Ad Infinitum to Wear a Mask, Don’t Wear a Mask, Don’t Touch This, Don’t Touch That, Don’t Go Here, Don’t Go There . . .
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR FREEDOMS ARE REALLY WORTH . . . ?
. . . NOTHING!
I’m Aghast . . . Truly Terrified – At How Easy it Was for the Government to Suspend all the Human Rights & Liberties of Hundreds of Millions of People Without Firing A Single Shot.
I Can’t Say This Too Loudly – Or Rather Loudly Enough . . . In Spite of What you Might Think or Say. And In-Spite of What Hollywood Pretends – and In-Spite of all we Believe-In about our Constitutions . . . THE ONLY RIGHTS WE HAVE – ARE THE RIGHTS THE GOVERNMENT ALLOWS US TO HAVE.
And if you Want to Argue that Point . . . Actions Speak Much Louder Than Words – just look at How Subservient we’ve Become over the Last Few Weeks.
If You Have A Condition which makes you Vulnerable to the China Virus, Take all Precautions Necessary, because it will be the Right thing for you to do. But, if you Simply want to be Free, and Aren’t Worried about the China Virus, and Won’t get Close enough to Infect Someone who Wants to be at a Distance . . . Then Just Get On With Your Life.
On March 23, 1775 – Patrick Henry, Standing Before The Second Virginia Convention Said . . . “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death”.
The Clock Is Ticking . . . And It’s Not Ticking In Our Favor.
