The Gap Is A Dirty Place
Written by Josiah Stricklin of musingsofacaveman.com
So you've decided to stand in the gap and become a protector. You've decided to take action; you're training, you're becoming more aware of your surroundings, and you're developing a warrior mindset. That's great. We need more men like you. However, I have to tell you that this journey isn't all rainbows and sunshine. If you want to stand in the gap and be the protector you're meant to be, then the chances are the media will villainize you.
Kyle Rittenhouse is now a famous 17-year-old. "Prosecutors say 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois, shot and killed two men during a chaotic protest Aug. 25. They've also accused Rittenhouse of shooting Grosskreutz, of West Allis, in the arm." This quote is from CBS news. If you continue to read the article, it casts Kyle as a bad actor, ignoring the fact that we have video evidence from reporters on the ground showing us what happened. Those same reporters were in the streets when the rioters were burning, looting, and destroying everything in sight. One of the reports had a guy pull a gun on him and dry fire in his face, telling him that's what he'd do to cops when he saw them. It is an utter lie to call what happened in Kenosha on those nights a protest. And yet, with all of the evidence we have, the stories written and told by the reporters on the ground, the mainstream media tells an entirely different tale.
This is only one incident, but if you think this is an isolated lie, then you're deceived or living with your head in the sand. From store owners to the guy in Dallas who was stoned and then beaten unconscious for defending a bar he liked, the story is woven to paint the guy standing against tyranny as the villain. If you protect your property, you care more about possessions than you do people. We now live in a world were someone accused of sexual assault, theft, criminal trespass, and let's not forget his criminal record, has his name plastered on players helmets in the NFL. Apparently, I'm Mugato from Zoolander, "I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!"
Every vial depravity of humanity is being celebrated and normalized. If you stand in the gap, if you stand against it, YOU will be the bad guy. If you stand for what's right, if you defend the helpless, then you will be the villain. The media and corporations will do everything in their power to destroy you. They'll de-platform you, ruin your reputation, and even de-person you if possible.
Then why stand in the gap? Why put the time in to be a better protector? Why in the hell would anyone want to pay that price? Because that's who you're meant to be. You're meant to stand in the gap. That's what happened when you were born a male. Injected into your DNA is a protector. You say, "Maybe that's true, but that's a high price to pay to be a man. I could lose everything." You're right. You could die, you could lose your reputation, and you could lose all of your worldly possessions. The media could come after you and try to destroy you. You might have to move, change your name. Who knows what might happen. So again, we go back to the question of why stand in the gap. You're here to be a hero, to be a warrior, to leave a mark on the world. If history looks back at you and you're the villain for standing, but your family and friends know that you stood for what was right, then so be it. I'm willing to pay that price to stand in the gap. Or maybe that's not what will happen. Perhaps you'll be this generations August Landmesser, the sole man not giving the Nazi salute. Imagine your family looking back through the ages to a man that stood up to insanity and held the line in the face of insurmountable odds. The world longs for this kind of man. It needs this kind of man. You have the potential to be a man of the gap. Find the line you won't cross and hold it. Hold that line until you're dying breath. It takes one man to change the world, but what if there are thousands of men with a focus to hold the line? They aim to correct the insanity in the world, to protect their families and neighbors, to stop the evil that is socialism from eating everything in its path.
That warrior heart beats in your chest. Remember Bishop Polycarp and "play the man."
I ask you now to play the man and stay toxic to the insanity that is rampant in our world.
