Filter’s Murica

A few months ago, I predicted on Twitter that America’s thin popular culture would become completely polarized and would break up: social media, big brands, spectator sports, movies, music, etc.

Alt Press:

“Who are you aiming at in the near-last sequence of the video?

RICHARD PATRICK: The character in the video is a Trump-supporting, gun-loving, unmedicated, super-freak ’merican unhinged and at his wits’ end. And he’s trying to take control of something that is not out of control. And he’s afraid. He’s the super-afraid white male. The Trump-supporting nutbag that I hope I can reach. 

These guys that are so far right that they think CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC [and] BBC are all out to get our President Trump. Like they’re all in a conspiracy to be super-left-wing, crazy liars. I’m trying to make an attempt to show them what they look like. These are the guys that can only listen to Fox News and Breitbart and that type of news outlet. They believe every fucking thing that the Rush Limbaugh’s, the Alex Jones’ [say] and listen to only the right wing, “the truth, man.”

Nothing is holding the country together.

We’ve been watching the last remaining ties begin to snap. I said that this would be the prelude to national disintegration. I also predicted a descent into violence within five years.

I reiterated my belief that the country would descend into violence on the podcast with Richard Spencer this weekend. As of last month, 44% of Republicans and 41% of Democrats now support some degree of political violence to advance their goals. It has soared since 2017.

Consider the rightwing side. Donald Trump has been a big pacifier and millions of his followers have been asleep in a QAnon fantasy world thinking they are “Making America Great Again.” What is going to happen when reality hits them between the eyes and finally sinks in? The Democrats have used every means at their disposal from censorship, impeachment to violence to get rid of Trump.

BTW, this is why I started doing all of this research this summer and working on my book. The Victorian mainstream and 19th century American culture came to a violent end in World War I. The same thing is going to happen on an even more spectacular scale with the Modern mainstream and 20th century American culture when this country destabilizes and implodes as a result of its own values.

Just look at these people. They don’t share even a thread of a common culture anymore. It is worse than the Civil War. In that conflict, there were far more similarities than differences. The Union and Confederacy shared the same racial and ethnic heritage, the same evangelical Protestant religion, the same history, the same republican form of government, basically the same Constitution, the same heroes, even the same holidays. The cultural cold war that began in the 1920s with Sinclair Lewis’s novels like Main Street, Babbitt and Elmer Gantry has opened a rift in national identity, culture and morality that is now so wide and has become so heated that it is going to boil over. I think it is inevitable at this point.

I just assume now this is the way that our times will end because I can’t see it ending any other way. It will end in a catastrophe. When all these festering hatreds and resentments come to a head and boil over into violence, the question will be why did it come to this and end this way?

Note: Robert Patrick thinks you are the one who is on drugs. You are the one who is deranged here. In the 1990s, I used to listen to Filter in high school. I also watched the first Borat movie in 2006. Now, I am not voting for Trump in the 2020 election because he is too soft for me!

[Verse 1]
Oh, I can’t afford my meds, existing all alone
Voices in my head, it’s coming through my phone
I can’t afford my meds, I wanna’ see ’em dead
But at least I got a shotgun

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun
I can’t afford my meds

[Chorus]
Dream a little dream, let it feed off all my needs
You know I love the man, love the man
He’s got me in his hands, he tells us it’s all good
As only darkness could
Please, dear God, lie, lie to me

[Verse 3]
Yeah, I can’t afford my meds, something is unglued
I see it in my head, ain’t buying your fake news
Wanna’ see ’em dead, I can’t afford my meds
And the answer’s in my shotgun

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun
I can’t afford my meds, but at least I got a shotgun

[Chorus]
Dream a little dream, let it feed off all my needs
You know I love the man, love the man
He’s got me in his hands, he tells us it’s all good
As only darkness could
Please, dear God, lie, lie to me

[Bridge]
It’s not a lie if you believe it
It’s not a lie if you believe it
It’s not a lie if you believe it
It’s not a lie if you believe it
It’s not a lie if you believe it
It’s not a lie if you believe it
It’s not a lie if you believe it, ha
Yeah!

[Outro]
They got us right where they want us
At each other’s throats
They got us right where they want us
At each other’s throats

  1. “We’ve been watching the last remaining ties begin to snap. I said that this would be the prelude to national disintegration. I also predicted a descent into violence within five years.”

    I bet you the FBI is monitoring this website due to the fact that you predict social collapse. The feds interpret that as “inciting violence”. It’s what Christopher Wray, FBI Director, uses as justification to claim that people like you are the most dangerous threat to America.

    Not going to happen, Hunter. The all powerful police state, military industrial complex, Homeland Security, and FBI would crush any resistance to their empire.

    The chaos you are seeing with the rioting is ‘controlled chaos’. The powers that be are very much aware they could easily curb stomp these people and they would indeed curb stomp them, if they got out of hand.

    The ‘controlled chaos’ is being used to implement radical Marxist policies. The only thing you are accomplishing with these ‘predictions’ is making nationalists a target of the feds. Like I said, to the feds they interpret ‘predictions’ of civil war / societal collapse as being incitement of violence by ‘White Supremacists’.

    Keep that in mind.

    • I’m sitting at my house watching BLM and Antifa riot with impunity in Philadelphia while a crazed lunatic is waving around his shotgun and depicting a bloodbath in the music video above. All I have done is follow the trends, consider historical patterns and project where this is going. Meanwhile, I have tuned out of the election chaos to work on my book.

      • After Trump loses and leaves, the rioting will be ended and normalcy under Neoliberalism will return – with yet more privatization, austerity, global war, universal surveillance, mass incarceration, mass cheap labor immigration, etc.

      • Rick Wiles of Tru News, stated recently that Federal, State, and local government have never interfered with his open views using the internet as a social media platform.

        Gryphon, Mr Wiles, also stated that big tech social media has done more damage to silence his Christian message/current event analysis,

        Gryphon, Mr Wallace message is banned by the same big tech industry.

        The Feds could give shit about you Gryphon or Mr Wallace.

        However the monopoly big tech media does give a shit on your faggot soyboy free speech!

    • Gryphon, not sure if you remember the events of 1989 (I do), but the whole world was saying that “The all powerful police state, military industrial complex, Red Army, and KGB would crush any resistance to their empire.”

      Berlin Wall came down overnight.

  2. Prediction. The white fellow snapping after the election is called, is going to be the cucked out white guy who voted for Biden. And that’s whether Biden wins or loses. This song could easily have been the internal monologue going on in Paddock’s mind or the mind of that asshole who shot up the Republican Baseball Team.

    No rightwinger who’s aware of the JQ is going to be that concerned about Trump losing. Israel First people might go ballistic though.

    • Biden is Israel first too, tho. They all are. Gryphon Fury is right… The Biden-Harris plan means YOU are a criminal. They already havr bills, resolutions and treaties written and available for your on-line viewing.

      No good options, but there are less bad ones. Be realistic.

  3. I’ve been expecting civil war soon since I got on social media in the mid 2000s, based on how people speak to each other on it. If the left and right could physicially get at each other through their TV screens, the war would have kicked off more than 10 years ago.

    Social media has brought people closer together than they’ve ever been before. And you know what they learned? They depise each other. Familiarity breeds contempt.

  4. Not even a good band. They had “Hey man Nice shot” decent song nothing special haven’t had a good song since that and “take a picture” They released a number of albums but they are basically a one hit wonder band. The lead singer has a horrible take on politics

  5. Filter is one of if not the best hard rock act of the mid late 90s but Richards ranting and shtilib behavior has been unbearable for the past decade. They play tiny venues and put on a great show, but Rich has made it known he does not want “Right Wingers” as fans. He is a nice man in person and able to have a really coherent fair conversation, something just happens to him in front of a keyboard or mic.

  6. A better song to reflect the current blackpilled mood is The Nationals “The system dreams in total darkness” don’t know if the song is politicaly inspired but boy does the title say it all. The two party system is a one party system zog plutocracy. I had it on my playlist for the last few months has a pretty decent riff

  7. It seems clear now that Biden will win thanks to court rulings allowing votes to come in up to 9 days after election day in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. And, at least in the case of the former, signatures on the mailed ballots do not need to match the registered voter’s signature on file.

    That’s it. They have 9 days to “find” the votes to make up any shortfall. It has happened before in Minnesota and Washington State. Done.

    This is officially a Banana Republic or Shithole.

    • He’ll win because women alway ally with power, and Trump has shown himself powerless to implement his agenda, subverted by the media, the deep state, and traitors within his administration at all attempts. The females see the media punishing them in hysteria at every turn and will just give in and give them what they want hoping it all goes away. Women in the Rust Belt were decimated by Globalism and some were willing to give Trump a chance. But the jobs haven’t returned and corporatism Bush Jr. style has been enabled and now they are hoping Biden will do something about their $1000 health insurance bill and give them a raise at their $9 an hour part time service job.

      Of course all that will happen is the rich sexual perverts in the Democratic party will prioritize their own hobby horse gay issues and environmental quackery first. The way Trump and the republicans wasted the first two years on nonsense like tax cuts and repealing Obamacare instead of trying to go after the mass media, tech giants, and educational racket that are a mortal threat to the American way of life.

      The debate is not whether global warming is real or not, the point is that the only way to power the industrial way of life are fossil fuels, or Uranium. The green prescription is to level us back to the utter poverty, disease, and malnutrition of a typical peasant in Tudor England. That is actually why they love this particular bit of scientific musing on CO2, it’s a weapon to go after the Sunbelt Based Gentile Energy Sector and White Middle Class Suburbanites driving cars and heating their homes with fossil fuels. Other theories about the Dyonesian social disintegration and bastardy caused by influence of the Jewish dominated Entertainment Industry on the other hand doesn’t interest them in the slightest.

  8. I thought Filter was a one hit wonder. “Hey man nice shot” was a great song, then I never heard them again.

    That quote by the band was cringe-worthy. He sounds like a Keith Olberman fan.

  9. old irrelevant fool. remember when the guy got wasted on an airplane and overestimated his fame? the guy is a joke. im no trump supporter, but this guy is just jumping on the libtard bandwagon.
