How To Detect Blue Pill People And Their Peculiar Habits

Being able to spot (and politely try to avoid) blue pill people is an important part of seeking an enlightened existence in the modern day United States.

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are pop culture symbols representing the choices between people embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) or continuing to exist in the ignorance of illusion (blue pill). The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, derive from the 1999 film ‘The Matrix’. In this article we will examine six phenomena where the people clearly shy away from the color red. They shall henceforth be known as blue pill people.

1. Thinks that the ‘Federal Reserve’ and ‘Federal Express’ are run by the federal government

The definition of federal is “having or relating to a system of government in which several states form a unity but remain independent in internal affairs”. What were the key words there? System of Government. It is truly amazing, even with all the documentaries and independent news sources available to the public, how many people still think that these institutions are affiliated with the federal government of the United States. That word “federal” plays around with their minds too much, and unfortunately for them it does not have a strong trademark. Anybody can start a private business and throw the word “federal” in there someplace. Swallow the red pill and get used to it.

2. Thinks that the ‘World Bank’ is a global bank

This follows closely in the footsteps of the previous entry, where a misleading adjective is used to give an institution an added aura of false mystique and holy-than-thou grandeur. The ‘World Bank’ was created at the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, along with three other institutions which included the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Guess what, the World Bank and IMF are both based in Washington DC, and all ‘World Bank’ Presidents have been U.S. citizens since it’s inception. Nothing ‘worldly’ about it.

3. Thinks that the ‘Southern Poverty Law Center’ actually has something to do with poverty

It doesn’t. Unless their sole purpose is to shank all the patriotic and constitutional “extremist groups” into poverty through their cancerous fund-raising tactics…

4. Pro-Military “Patriots”

You know who these people are. They are the people with the “support our troops” bumper stickers plastered on their vehicle. They are the people who believe that military interventions abroad are “protecting our freedom” somehow. They are the people who blindly thank soldiers “for their service” or something to that effect. They are the people who are completely oblivious to the incredible amount of death, destruction, and suffering that our aggressive foreign policy unleashes upon the world.

Unfortunately, this is the most damaging brand of ‘blue pill people’ in the country today. Their emotional support of the military, no matter the circumstances, gives passive validation to the numerous warmongering misadventures that our country engages in overseas. Our nation was founded upon the principles and desires to be a peaceful and enlightened republic, free from the intermittent conflict and squabbling which had tormented the monarchies of Europe for centuries. It was not supposed to be the giant red-white-and-blue blazing bully that it is today.

These types of blue pill people think they’re patriots, but are rather the epitome of what would be considered “Unamerican” by the visions of our founding fathers.

support the troops

Because American “freedom” is under attack by 3rd world Iraqis and Afghans just trying to go about their lives…

5. Die-hard NFL fans

Casual NFL fans are not necessarily blue pill (though a lot of them certainly are). However the REALLY big NFL fans show little doubt that they’re unwilling to enter the rabbit hole. The NFL and military patriotism go hand-in-hand more than just about any other major civilian institution in the United States, and these die-hard fans will always fawn over every military appearance or “support the troops” shtick coming from the pitch or the P.A.

And then they wonder why essentially no other countries play this brand of sport…

6. “U-S-A! U-S-A!” Chanters

You merely have to listen to these people (even from a great distance) to quickly deduce that this group of almost exclusively U.S. residents is very much blue pill. They can generally be found at sporting events or communal gatherings, where some sort of national ‘victory’ is supposed to make them erupt in this irritating and haughty celebration of ‘Muricana. The sports fans are often merely irritating (but are probably pro-military patriots as well), while the following examples show how destructive the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant can be for the national psyche. Unfortunately, these types of people are difficult to coax out of their brainwashed habits. They can only save themselves. Try and avoid them like an out of control fire.

A Major League Baseball (MLB) game in Philadelphia erupts into the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant after news of Osama bin Laden’s death is announced. Not only is there considerable evidence that he died many years before this 2011 revelation, but we are not supposed to be a nation that jubilantly celebrates death.

A gathering of young Boston residents dive into the “U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant following news that the marathon bomber has been apprehended. They are essentially celebrating the death of American freedom, as Boston was placed on lockdown while considerable numbers of militarized police roamed the city during this incident in 2013. Must….not…..vomit….

    While I personally agree with all of these, some people could be forgiven for not knowing about #1–3. Sure, if they’ve been TOLD about this, yet continue to believe otherwise, that’s a problem. But, it’s a fairly complex story behind why (for example) the Federal Reserve not being ‘federal’ is a bad thing.

    I would agree 100% with #4–6, but could see some more-important “blue-pill characteristics for #1–3, such as: 1) Believing everything the mainstream media news says, and not paying attention to a counterpoint offered by a human being standing next to them, 2) A staunch Democrat or Republican who believes that any of these clowns are really ‘different’ or will allow them to “take their country back”, 3) similarly, Those who vote for the ‘lesser of two evils’, because while the Independent candidates “might” be better, “they don’t stand a chance”.

    Really enjoyed this article. I can’t ‘engage’ anymore with family and friends that inebriate themselves with the blue pill world.

    • Ian

      Same here! And if there is three words that I’m sick of hearing in the United States, it’s “engage” “inspire” and “empower”.

      • Danny Straw

        Here here its hard to be around anyone who is a blue pill eater, some of them eat them by the handful.

  • Hp B

    Anti-Semitic! Anti-Semitic!! Anti-Semitic!!!
    Oh, whoops… Wrong article.

    (you’re still an anti-Semite)

    • TruthBeTold

      People who believe Ashkenazi Jews are actually “semitic” are also VERY MUCH blue pill.

  • darthangel

    If you really think we invade foreign countries, because we are so “concerned” about “violations” of human rights – you might have swallowed the blue pill.

    If you really think we can bring justice to the third world, but you also believe that America is an intrinsically “racist” society – you might have swallowed the blue pill.

    If you complain about welfare costs but don’t mind CEO’s getting bailed out – you might have swallowed the blue pill.

    If you claim to support the 99% but then you think everyone in the Tea Party is a “racist” – you might have swallowed the blue pill.

    If you really think we should free Tibet, but consider yourself anti-war – you might have swallowed the blue pill. (By the way how many of those free Tibet folks would be willing to free Hawaii?)

    If you think “sanctions” is something other than a euphemism for siege warfare – you might have swallowed the blue pill.

    If you think the world war 2 generation was the “greatest” generation and forget that they raised a bunch of narcissistic good for nothings who made them look great in comparison – you might have swallowed the blue pill.

    The U.S. Military are dogs of war for Zionist Khazars.

  • Lokis

    like to have seen a wee mention of the sheeple who gorge on the official narrative of 911 spewed endlessly by MSM. That is indeed a quick and easy litmus test.

  • tomas rader

    Then the red pill sheep would be anticapitalist. The others … occupiers … that actually are world citizens bent on equal distribution of income based on fair entitlements. They also hold the mistaken belief that we’re all created equal … this was meant to mean in the eyes of god. Since most are agnostics or atheists God is irrelevant. Funny how when the protests fail that God or karma is what they blame.
    Let’s get serious now about those hippie liberal parents of the current red pill sheeple … they didn’t end or accomplish shit. If you can get the truth out of the sell outs they’ll tell you that the campus protests were a great place to score drugs and get pussy. If you don’t like being the popo of the world that’s fine … we agree and as a capitalist I’d mercenary out our armed forces. But not to like baseball is just unamerican. Emulate your brothers in arms and start burning muslim flags and the koran. Last time I checked muslims kill more people daily than detroit does in a month.. If red people were serious and actually lived their espoused values they’d move to cuba.
