I think something’s wrong with my Hate Machine. I’ve got it turned up to 10, but I’m still not feeling it. The hate. The murderous, self-righteous hate. The mindlessly fanatical hate. I set the dial to “Palestinians.” Nothing. No reaction whatsoever. So, I set it to “Israelis.” Again, nothing. I just can’t seem to get my hate up. It’s embarrassing. Maybe there are some pills that would help.
MSM is Viagra for Hate-Ons. Consult your doctor if your hate-on lasts for longer than 4 hours. Time to re-read the famous poem "First They Came..." https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/first-they-came-for-unvaccinated-jews-stoves
Oh, thank you for writing this. I have felt the same way and really did think something was wrong with me. Perhaps I just got numb from all the hating I've been doing over the past decade.
You know, first we were supposed to hate anyone who was MAGA, then we had to hate men who were sexually predatory (let's put them all on lists!), then we needed to hate people who refused to wear masks, and then hate our own family members who were unvaccinated (let's disinvite them from holiday gatherings!), then we had to hate supporters of Putin and those horrible anti-war protesters, and now we must hate the people we just yesterday had lunch with because, as it turns out, they're totally pro-genocide...and on and on.
No. Enough with all of it. I think I'll choose to love everyone instead.
I will reserve my hate for the ones in charge, orchestrating all of this from above.
It's hard to get your hate on when you don't believe anything you read or see.
CJ Hopkins' Substacks are one of my favorite things to see in my e-mail inbox.
Wow! I thought it was only me and I was just being a slacker.
Seriously, don’t fall for the manufactured division. The powers that be want us to be divided, want us to hate. Don’t do it. Hate is not a good frequency to hang out in.
Terrific piece! I feel the same way. And I think of this poem by Robert Frost:
“Fire and Ice”
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
despite this essay's sarcastic tone, CJ is on to something very serious here.
the Hate Machine is real and it stares straight into us from our slick, black mirrors every day.
I see this in some of my most intelligent, cultured friends. they are defined more in who they hate than for what they believe or stand for by a mile. bring up any of the popular figures the regime has told us to despise (Elon, Tucker, RFK, Trump, MAGAs etc) and off they go. practically vibrating with rage and spewing curses, they have all turned into demagogues inhabited by ancient spirits from the deep. we are slowly transforming from an enlightened democracy into something much more primordial. sinking into the dark unconscious of humanity.
from the rational into the metaphysical...
Only hate for the puppet masters.
I just feel despair and empty at the horror of it.
Perhaps you are just emotionally mature.
Seeing more hate and more senseless slaughter, I'm left with a weariness and a background radiation of sadness.
I wish, I truly do, that this species would grow up. Stop hating, stop slaughtering, stop reacting.
Brilliant CJ. And horrible. And horribly brilliant and brilliantly horrible. Keep up this hate spewing and confusion concocting and they'll force you into office
I dialed in MSM, FDA, WHO, AMA, WEF, UN, CDC, Gates, Soros, Pfizer, Moderna, and the entire group of world war mongers and genocide promoting Satanists and it overloaded and broke the machine.
Brilliant. Thank God for satire and C.J.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to another Two Minutes Hate. 😵💫
Try anger, that always work for me.
I found my sad machine is running full tilt boogie.
