If You Believe It Then You Done Been Gaslighted

Back in the day under the evening streetlights chasing moths and tag were fun games to play

This was before the games of today that have evolved into drive by shootings, car jackings and running from pepper spray

Kids played with other neighborhood kids because that is what one did

Now the new norm is a kid has to pass muster according to a new set of rules and if not fun is not allowed God forbid

It appears the last two generations of parents have fallen for the social media trap of gaslighting

According to new schools of thought it’s not okay to voluntarily form friendships based on personality, they must be initially approved or sparks will be igniting

Social media has assumed the lofty perch of supreme ruler and they alone can approve, intimidate, badger, shame, dox or slander at will

Find a person that doesn’t toe the line, speaks their mind, or bow to some pompous tyrant and social media closes in for the kill

The term gaslighting originated from a British stage play and a film starring the scheming Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman as the new bride and her foray into near insanity

Footsteps in the dark, missing pictures, and gaslights dimming were all orchestrated by Boyer’s greed and toxicity

Fast forward from 1944 and social media has become the new poisonous Gaslight featured actor

Differ in thought or speech and the wrath of social media will be unleashed as you would be considered a socialist detractor

Wheather it’s the mainstream news, social media, or instiution, pick one pick all they’re coming for your independence

So put down your phone, close that laptop, and turn off the boob tube before you find yourself meekly answering “here” advising the leftist government you’re in attendance

Where’s Boris

We’re live tonight and riding with Sgt. Al (Big Al) Jackson an officer assigned to Russian Patrol
The agency formed after collusion talks indicated Russian infiltrators needed to be kept under control.
The patrol’s job is to seek out Soviet non-citizens, arrest and book them and have them deported
I’m riding with Sgt. Jackson following leads that residents have reported
Big AL explained he came from a military family and had grown tired of seeing America going down the tubes
Besides chasing bad guys beats working in a office and spending the day peering over cubes
The radio suddenly came to life advising a suspicious person at the Circle K sandwich bar
The suspect was upset that that none of the advertised condiments were Beluga caviar.
Gone before we got there we were tipped that suspicious person might be at Charge Bucks Coffee shop
A customer observed a person sending bulk e-mails of voting misinformation from his laptop
The individual was also agitated the Barista couldn’t create a Lenin likeness in his cappuccino.
Quietly we rolled into the parking lot and stopped behind a vintage El Camino
Approaching the suspect we identified ourselves as a government agency
Laughing, he replied that our numbers were too small to topple this insurgency
Still amused even in handcuffs he advised to take a look at the Mueller investigation
Two years and money wasted and nothing even close to a presidential incrimination
“We work with our network of hackers creating likable bots that America accepts as friends through their gullibility
State something outlandish enough times and fiction becomes fact. A guaranteed inevitability”
So the day progressed, the next stop was a big box store where three hookers were nabbed in the health and beauty aids.
All were demanding diplomatic immunity in an eastern bloc accent while dressed in plaid skirts and fake blond braids
The afternoon was spent interviewing green card violators trying to find a Russian connection from a potential deportee
Four hours later we were holding just one suspect who gave his name as Jesus del a Slobinski.
Later over beers, Big Al lamented. “You see it’s no longer a spy vs spy or Tom Cruise hanging on strings.”
“We spend our time waiting by the phone or seeing what new social media rumor tomorrow brings. “
“Yesterday’s detective work was easy. Tips were called in or you knocked on doors
Now we’re forced to follow up on rumors spread by a hacker six thousand miles away spreading lies like mushroom spores.”
The Russians are a dodge. The media is fueling the frenzy by writing their own unsubstantiated fabrications
The writer can read the hackers’ observations and instantly what was fiction is now face book proclamations.
Which is why we’re picking up eastern bloc amateur hookers and a caravan lightweight.
While the real criminal is on the other side of the world spreading gossip for shallow minds to infiltrate”
