The situation in the United States is heating up after Wednesday’s deadly assault on the Capitol by Trump supporters. Despite calls from President Trump not to resort to violence and to maintain order, the assault ended with 5 deaths and dozens arrested. As a result, on December 11,  Democrats formally introduced an article of impeachment accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection in regard to the riot at the US Capitol. At the same time, the country is preparing to the protests inciting ahead of the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20.

Americans has never before has been so desperate to smash the Capitol, the symbol of American democracy.

It may seem that Trump and his supporters have no choice but to accept defeat. However, the confrontation is heating up and spinning out of control. Now, thousands of protesters have a sacred sacrifice: Ashley Babbitt, a pretty woman and veteran of the United States Air Force, who was killed in a shootout at the Capitol. She came to Washington to support Trump. She had no weapon with her and was overtaken by a bullet from a guard. Ashley Babbitt died on the way to the hospital.

Meanwhile, MSM claimed that the FBI is preparing for armed protests in all states and at the capital before Biden’s inauguration. Supporters of traditional America take to the streets in the cities across the United States. The authorities introduce forces, declare a curfew.

According to the Wall Street Journal report, the National Guard will increase the number of troops in Washington, D.C., to at least 10,000 by Saturday. Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, who is in charge of the National Guard Bureau, said in a press briefing Monday that the troop levels could rise to 15,000. The bolstered force would be larger than contingents of Guardsmen at past inaugurations. Roughly 9,000 were in Washington for President Obama’s inauguration, Gen. Hokanson said.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolfe allegedly ordered the Secret Service to begin operations to ensure the security of Joe Biden’s inauguration from January 13.

It seems that the Americans are preparing for a “final battle.”

Even before the inauguration of their president, Democrats are already setting their own rules of the game and disarming opponents. US President Donald Trump was banned from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as well as a number of other platforms. Twitter even went so far as to mute the official @POTUS Twitter account, while Trump is still in office.

As a result, the accounts of the acting President of the United States, supporting groups or hashtags were censored on the following sites:

  • Social network Twitter;
  • video streaming service Twitch;
  • Snapchat mobile messaging application;
  • social network Facebook;
  • Instagram;
  • Google Play and Apple App Store  website removed Parler app;
  • YouTube video hosting;
  • TikTok;
  • Pinterest;
  • social news site Reddit;
  • messenger Discord;
  • Shopify, a software developer for online and retail stores, blocked two stores where Trump’s merchandise was sold.

Many Trump supporters has already begun to shift his online activity to alternative platforms such as Parler, which was eventually blocked by the Google Play store and Apple’s App Store.

Amazon officially kicked out Parler from its servers thus blocking the work of the social media platform.

The IT giant emphasized that they respect Parler’s right to determine what content is allowed on the social network. “However, we cannot provide services, which cannot effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence,” Amazon explained, adding that the social network “poses a real risk to public safety.”

Social media hysteria is radicalizing American society. The confrontation takes place not only at rallies and in the Capitol. There is discrimination against ordinary Americans, who are now classified as terrorists for their support of President Trump. For example, Delta Airlines flight was delayed, and passengers called on police because they refused to fly alongside two women sympathizing with Trump, who were called the “home-grown terrorists.”

Democracy in the United States no longer exists, as well as tolerance and ordinary human respect. In the coming Dark Age of Neo-Totalitarianism, there is no place for humanity, but only for impersonal individuals, without gender, race or nationality.

But not so long ago, the Americans taught the whole world how to establish a democratic society. Moreover, the methods that they used were far from democratic, but even cruel and violent.

Facebook has blocked Trump for his alleged “incitement to violence,” saying special times call for special measures. However, during the protests in Belarus, not a single American claimed the violence, when Belorussian opposition deliberately disseminated personal information of law enforcement forces on the network, after what a real hunt began. Just a few months ago, Washington stated:

“Severe restrictions on ballot access for candidates, prohibition of local independent observers at polling stations, intimidation tactics employed against opposition candidates, and the detentions of peaceful protesters and journalists marred the process.” – Mike Pompeo said.

The United States, leading the entire collective West, imposed sanctions against the current government in Belarus, actively supporting “peaceful protesters”, inciting the growing violence.

“The violence and the attempts by Belarusian authorities to suppress protests are completely unacceptable,” Foreign Office Minister James Duddridge said back in August. Today, American leader Donald Trump introduced a state of emergency and sent federal aid to the Washington authorities.

European countries also blindly followed Washington during the protests in Belarus, as well as in other countries. The chief of the European Council criticized Belarus for attempting to quash protests.

“Violence against protesters is not the answer for Belarus,” Charles Michel said on Twitter. “Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, basic human rights must be upheld.”

NetBlocks, an NGO that tracks internet shutdowns worldwide, claimed in August: “It has been almost 24 hours since Belarus fell largely offline after a series of worsening internet disruptions during Sunday’s elections.”

After statements that the Belarusian authorities had restricted access to the Internet , a joint statement was published on the website of the US State Department with the signatures of representatives of 29 countries concerned about the surge in Internet censorship. It read:

“We call for an end of blocking or restriction of online services and respecting international human rights obligations, including in accordance with articles 19 and 21 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights …”

Today, European leaders are much more modest in comments to the situation in the United States. For example, the French government considers it necessary to combat hate speech on social networks, but does not support the blocking of US President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

“I am not at ease because of this decision,” the French media quoted government spokesman Gabriel Attal as saying.

Also, American diplomats stated that the United States supported the Kyrgyz people during protests against the voting results in autumn, which led to the overthrow of President Sooronbai Jeenbekov. Back in May 2019, it became known that the United States was allocating $ 2.5 million to Kyrgyzstan, allegedly for monitoring the parliamentary elections. In fact, all the money went to finance subversion. Washington supported the right to self-determination of the Kyrgyz people when protesters stormed the White House in Beshkek

Americans, speaking about the same situation in their country, say the exact opposite: «Rule by a violent mob is not, and has never been, a part of our constitutional system»

“The violent and criminal assault on the U.S. Capitol during the recent proceedings to certify the results of the presidential election and the victory of President-elect Biden, is a grave reminder of how important it is to value and safeguard the essential elements of our republic that are enshrined in our Constitution, including the right to vote and the freedoms of speech and peaceful assembly. Rule by a violent mob is not, and has never been, a part of our constitutional system.” US ambassador to Russia, John J. Sullivan

Washington has completely forgotten about the policies that it pursued in almost all regions of the world, supporting brutality, inciting revolutions that led to numerous casualties and wars. This was the case in Ukraine, Venezuela, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, in the Middle East, etc. As soon as the same cruelty broke out in their country and ruined their society, they began to hide behind “democracy”.

It is obvious that the United States will no longer be able to pretend to be a democratic “tutor” anywhere in the world as it used to. The international society trusts less and less any of their statements about violations of freedom of speech and infringement of other human rights, anywhere outside the United States. However, highly likely it will not stop the hypocrisy of the neo-liberal elite. Even after the United States has demonstrated its true attitude towards democratic values, the globalist elites are unlikely to feel ashamed to hide behind these values in order to realize their own interests. They did not care about democracy before, and they will not do so in the future.

The neo-totalitarians already control public opinion, allow the president to be impeached a week before the end of his term, and they are going to receive the all necessary power. The game without rules is a fait accompli today. Moreover, this applies not only to the situation within the United States, but also to the state of the modern international system, in which Washington’s policy in recent years has practically erased any norms and “red lines“. The main question today is how this game will be played not only by the main rivals of the United States, like China or Russia, but also by its allies, for whom the current changes in the global paradigm also pose significant challenges.

The neo-liberal digital totalitarianism is the new form of the daily life and government system in the US, and the whole world will have to deal with it.
