Narrative Warfare Examined: The Good Fight TV Spot

It happened. Open calls for political violence by the Thralls of Empire happened. This came from the Leftist side.

Of course this is plausibly deniable as advertising for a television series. That's how this works; you use something as a cover for the actual objective, which in this case was to signal to fellow travelers that the time for violence has come. In addition, the continuing UnThinging of "white nationalism" as its own thing, instead deliberately confusing it with white supremacy, is another Narrative Warfare element found in this TV spot.

Now, let's take another element that some of you might have missed: the vests. The rioters are wearing red vests, like those worn by road crews at work, mimicking the Yellow Vest protests by the French in France against Macron. This is no accident; it's meant to co-opt an anti-Empire, pro-nationalist effort (that, to be fair, arose out of an anti-tax protest) against a nakedly treasonous state and use it as cover for the aforementioned violence.

In short, we're not talking about a signal to just repeat what happened to Richard Spencer. We're talking about inciting mobs to go after groups, swarming them as we see so often in Colin Flaherty's videos about American black violence; it's just going to start with increased episodes of high-profile sucker-punch attempts. Yes, "attempts", as we shall also see more incidents of attackers getting checked, injured, or killed doing so when they go after targets willing and able to defend themselves. The consequences of this escalation is intended.

This is intentional polarization. The reaction is intended, and not to sic the cops on those reacting, though that will happen. No, the objective is to destabilize further an already uneasy American public. The tells are in the turnovers in major city governments; SJWs assuming mayoral or prosecutor positions are changing policies and regulations to inhibit honest residents' ability to legally handle threats while protecting predators from reprisals. This is mirrored at the state and federal level whenever possible. Some of the Thralls think that it's time to signal to their pets that it's Hunting Season, hence this TV spot and similar recent things such as Representative Illhan Omar's remarks on 9/11 followed by a Somali man throwing a visiting white boy down to the ground from the 3rd floor at the Mall of America.

What this spot reveals is that someone's not reading the social mood to cynically draw eyeballs to a TV program, but rather attempting to program the social mood in order to begin the elimination of resistance to Empire. The Thralls, like their master, are prone to under-estimating the enemy as well as over-estimating themselves--classic Dunning-Kruger--so this isn't going to be the robotic roll-up they imagine. At best they duck out once the chaos kicks off and take over once it's passed, imposing order upon survivors too weak to resist.

They think they've run the gas long enough. Now they're looking for a spark to set it off and ignite an explosive inferno. I doubt they have it right. Empire must fall.
