“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.” ― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time
On 26th January 1950, the reins of Indian rule finally came into the hands of the Indian government, even though India had been freed in 1947. The Indian Constitution became the basis on which the new union was built. Many of the people at the helm, though, were preparing ways to circumvent the rules, laws, and norms. In order to perpetuate their rule and power. That urge also came with fear. What if we lose the elected power?
So a deep infiltration was attempted to structure the school books, the history books, and the social narratives in ways that even though they were juvenile, were taken as the universal truth.
Pockets of entitlement and power backed by corruption and patronage were carved out. They understood the art of self-deprecating their collective self, while posing as the down-trodden. Punjab’s arhtiyas and middlemen who have built ungodly wealth on the dead bodies of poor farmers are the ones who now pose as “farmers.”
They have parked in the capital to start a war with the Center while their farms are being worked on by the poor farmers for whom the laws that these entitled middlemen want to be thrown out, are for in the first place!
There is a farce being perpetuated backed by poetic renditions and emotional stories. You see, these are roles. Roles being performed by different people in the large enterprise of anarchy.
By the Anarcho-Leftist-Terror groups.
the coming storm in Delhi - January 26th
The Delhi Police has formally given permission for the Kisan tractor rally to be held on January 26 around Delhi. There are five entry and exit points for the National Capital Region (NCR), where the so-called farmers have been in a sit-in drama. The CAPF and other force deployed for Republic Day Parade security will be put on short notice ready to move in for any law and order issue.
The anarchists in this rally will be starting from the five border points. These are the base points for this “rally.”
Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan tractors have assembled at the Tikri border. They will be moving 10-15 km from these base points and then coming back.
From the beginning, we have been covering the deep networks and powers that have been involved in this “attack” on India. It is not a ‘farmers’ rally”, but an attack on India in a bid to restart the terrorist movement.
308 Twitter handles have been identified that have been working to incite violence in India. The Delhi Police Chief has warned about that already.
The threat of fake news bytes is not just from Pakistan and certainly not only in the online realm. Now masked men are being paraded with malafide charges designed to create violence and destruction. Anonymous fake charges repeated in the tweet below along with rumors to incite violence are being created by some forces.
The groups that are masquerading as farmers have been following the same strategy of creating a ghetto with violence to a point of even killing some folks. Listen to this kid.
If you closely look at all the evidence that is emerging, you realize that this whole drama is a movement to instill hatred towards and humiliate the Indian PM Modi.
Even while he reasserted the demand to repeal agricultural laws at the earliest, Punjab President NSUI Akshay Sharma on Sunday said the January 26 tractor rally would crush Modi’s arrogance and callousness towards Punjabis. (Source)
Modi did not pass the laws. The Indian Parliament did.
What was the need to bring in these laws? We had discussed the extreme moral justification in our newsletter earlier - Issue #192 - A System of Psychopaths!
5800 tons of foodgrains rotted in godowns last year. 7000 Indians die of hunger every single day. 45 farmers committed suicide every single day. While the tomatoes, costing Rs 45-50 a kg at Delhi’s Azadpur mandi, could fetch their producers, the farmers mere Rs 2-4 a kg.
All this while the system by law prohibited - made it illegal - for these farmers to sell to the end customer, even if they somehow could make it to the city, no more than 400 kgs!
By law, the system which nurtured these devils who earned the difference between what the farmer earned and what it sold for in Azadpur, made it illegal for the farmer to sell it to anyone else. Any one else! (Issue #192 - A System of Psychopaths! (Source)
There is a very serious threat to the life of the Indian PM.
It is not as if there are no sane voices. There are. But they are lone and individual voices. They are not the ones that have the power to cut across through the noise. The shrill voices of the anarchists and the Khalistanis are backed by state actors from other countries and terrorists who have money. They are able to fund and sustain the promotion of their propaganda much longer.
The masked man fake rumor-mongering and the statement from Yogesh, the cook suggest that there is a plan to incite violence. When the protesters come upfront, before the protest to allege a false-flag conspiracy in an attempt to white-wash their own plans to do the same thing, the chances are that such an action is imminent. Pakistan has used the same pattern repeatedly when it came to terror attacks to undermine any action from India.
The chances are that this group is primed for violence. Any slight miscalculation could create a major issue for the Indian capital, the government, and the country.
Not all protests turn violent though. What may indicate that the violence may be the outcome of a certain type of protest?
An interesting study by Tausch, N., Becker, J. C., and others, was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology that discussed this question. People who will notch up the protests and resort to violence are the ones who are more likely to report a history of contempt and hate for their adversaries.
A recent model of collective action distinguishes 2 distinct pathways: an emotional pathway whereby anger in response to injustice motivates action and an efficacy pathway where the belief that issues can be solved collectively increases the likelihood that group members take action (van Zomeren, Spears, Fischer, & Leach, 2004). Research supporting this model has, however, focused entirely on relatively normative actions such as participating in demonstrations. We argue that the relations between emotions, efficacy, and action differ for more extreme, nonnormative actions and propose (a) that nonnormative actions are often driven by a sense of low efficacy and (b) that contempt, which, unlike anger, entails psychological distancing and a lack of reconciliatory intentions, predicts nonnormative action.

From openly associating with Pakistan (there was a video where a Sikh elder was saying Imran Khan can protect them more than Modi before unleashing expletives against the latter) to openly threatening the lives of the top ministers to exhibiting Hinduphobia, this group - which has backing from established terror organizations - not just has contempt for the government but has a deep-seated hatred. And, that hatred is usually expressed in religious and bigoted ways.
In another paper by Rutger University’s Miller Center for Community Protection and resilience on Network-enabled Anarchy, the authors discussed the characteristics of a militant anarcho-socialist violent movement against Political opponents and law enforcement. (Source: How Militant Anarcho-Socialist Networks Use Social Media to Instigate Widespread Violence Against Political Opponents and Law Enforcement)
These communities use three tools:
- Memes to spread propaganda
- Sophisticated communication networks for both planning and recruitment using fringe and private online forums
- Organize militias and use lone wolf actors for violent action
That masked man in the tweet discussing the possibility of a “false flag shooting” is basically paving the way for exactly that!
One very interesting and significant insight that this study came up with during the study was the alignment of tactics between ISIS, the racist civil war creating groups (Boogaloo movement), and the Anarcho-Socialist Extremists.
In December, these anarcho-terrorist protesters tried to run policemen under a tractor (Source). There has been a proliferation of videos, songs, content and memes around contempt for not just the law enforcement agencies but against corporations and specifically against the current PM and his ministers.
The hate campaign has been personal in nature.
The Rutger study team also found that amongst the cyber strategies used by the anarchist groups was the sharing of information on how to create weapons and violent tools. This was backed by “real-time online coordination of offline rioting and anti-police violence such as setting fires, throwing projectiles and using fireworks/munitions.”
We had shared how Carrd sites were being used to share information during the Hathras protests (Issue #147 - The very lucrative enterprise in Global Anarchy) and also how Facebook groups backing these so-called farmer protests have been providing online information on how to use AK-47 rifles. (Issue #220 - Preferred Villains)
One important tool in the arsenal of these Anarcho-Socialist groups is the move to create political and dehumanizing codewords/memes. These start appearing and become popular as hashtags around the time of these protests. In US, for example, “All Cops are Bastards” (ACAB) memes are used most (in different formats though) to dehumanize the law enforcement personnel.
Similar dehumanizing in India is done against the Hindus and BJP, specifically PM Modi. The code-words like “Brahminism” and “Patriarchy” and Caste slogans start appearing suddenly. Narendra Modi becomes the personification of all evil and using his name as the means, potshots are taken against the Hindu community. Modi’s name is just a fig leaf. The target is always the community.
In this whole “movement” the same type of hatred has been unleashed in the guise of Punjabi supremacy. Please read - Issue #220 - Preferred Villains
A protest by such forces is a well-orchestrated event. It has different roles and people manning those roles. Some are for non-violent/peaceful facade and others behind them throwing inflammable projectiles and stones. Others are busy creating “inspiring graphics” and the whole army of online influencers is at hand. There is another important group that is there ready to record any “violent action” by the police and immediately promote it. Check this illustration - sounds familiar?

video corner: Listening to an ex-slave
This is a conversation with an ex-slave George Johnson. Johnson almost sounds as if he liked Jefferson Davis as a "master." It may be so because the only life Johnson knew was of slavery and because he was born a slave and lived so, he had begun to believe that he was less than whites.
A remarkable video.
