Incredible as it seems there may be a whole suborganization within… [the government like the Deep State.] “Yeah, some nights I wake up…wonder what the hell the world is going to,” says Inspector Callahan. Couldn’t have said it better myself, Clint. Damn, he’s handsome even with a Band-Aid.
Clint Eastwood was my celebrity crush. Many moons ago in the 70s, I met him on my 29th birthday at a private tennis club bar that my boyfriend and I snuck into to watch a Bjorn Borg tennis match on tv. No sooner had we sat down and ordered some food (and just by happenstance) in walked Clint and other celebrities like Merv Griffin and Lloyd Bridges all there for a celebrity tennis tournament. My boyfriend whispered like a ventriloquist, “Don’t look up, but there’s Clint Eastwood. Act normal, pretend not to notice him” which I proceeded to do while my heart was beating out of my chest.
Once Clint was seated at a long table next to mine, a 21-year-old cocktail waitress handed him a note. Clint turned around to me and asked, “Can you read this for me?” He apparently left his bifocals at home. I nonchalantly took the note (playing along like I didn’t know who he was) and read it aloud for his guests to all hear, “Meet me in Room 211 after I get off work.” Gene Hackman asked to see the note for himself but couldn’t read it either and said to me, “I love young eyes.” It was the best birthday of my life and I’ll never forget it. At age 29 and single I was feeling at a crossroads; but I was young to them, and Clint made my day. Actually, it was a turning point in my life as I met my husband two months later quite by happenstance, again. But I digress.
Dirty Harry’s comments in Magnum Force were way before their time. The movie was about a secret organization within the SFPD that was judge, jury, and executioner of suspects with criminal records. They hired rogue policemen as traffic cops that pulled over suspects then shot them to death without any arrest or evidence or court appearance. The Deep State is treating the GOP, Trump, and his supporters much in the same way. They are judge, jury, and executioners all in one for us thinking or believing differently. We are guilty until proven innocent.
They use BLM and Antifa as their rogue policemen. They turned a peaceful assembly into a chaotic riot at the Capitol by inciting violence and the Deep State quickly (without evidence) blamed Trump. Judge, jury, guilty as charged. This is scary stuff. I read the transcript of Trump’s speech that day as well as watched it live. It was lacking in enthusiasm and rather lackluster. Not inspiring at all. More of a review of how the election fraud took place. Not enough to stir up a crowd. In fact, he told them to march peacefully and patriotically to the Capitol to let their voices be heard.
Look how the Deep State treated Roger Stone and Manafort for working with Trump. Look how they’ve treated Trump and his family from day one. Look how they’re treating any member of congress that dares to say that there was election fraud. They want them to resign. Look what they’re doing to the owner of Parler having him flee his home from death threats. Look what they’ve done to all conservatives on Twitter–banned. They have been treating us all like criminals for not believing or thinking the same as them. It is a travesty. They are the thought and speech police and are trying to silence us.
Ironically, they are the criminals overthrowing our government and treating us as the criminals. They are metaphorically pulling us over for a traffic violation and shooting us to death. I do wake up at night and wonder where the hell our country is heading. Dirty Harry’s comments in Magnum Force were foreboding and ring true today.
What the hell is the world going to?
