    How Many Raped English Girls Is The Economy Worth?

    The above post contains links to news stories about ‘Asian’ gangs sexually abusing (mostly underage) white girls in the UK — the list is rather extensive, to say the least — I know a few Brits who badmouth Trump, but when I ask them if they’ve ever expressed outrage to anyone (I know they’ve never said anything to me) about Rotherham etc, and the role of police and council authorities and the media in tolerating and covering it up, they always give me this funny ‘WTF are you talking about?’ reaction.

    There are some rumours going around in our circles about Theresa May, quietly, cautiously, they whisper discreetly, could it be possible, is it feasible that Theresa May might not be fully signed up to the Globalist master plan?…Time will tell, but it’s a depressing sign of the times when we can become excited because the Prime Minister is not explicitly trying to eradicate the native British population…And yet even Theresa May’s rather pathetic attempts to ride the populist tiger are too much for The Independent who’ve now started up a petition against May’s proposed immigration reduction. In cahoots with ”Open Britain” a new Left Wing think tank, they’re attempting a rearguard action, the racists, bigots and little Englanders got Brexit, but we can’t have reduced immigration too, that would be outrageous.

    "when I ask them ... about Rotherham etc ... they always give me this funny ‘WTF are you talking about?’ reaction"
     
    Yeah, I've found the same thing when talking to anyone outside the alt-right about, for example, Anthony Wiener, UVa Rape Hoax, Hillary's US-uranium-for-Russian-cash, dozens of black-on-white crimes locally vs. one celebrated white-on-black crime remotely, blue city ethnic cleansing, refugee rape epidemics, etc.: people are completely oblivious to the salient facts of our time. They react with anger or disbelief when I point one out.

    The MSM hasn't just been a purveyor of fake news, it is even more a suppressor of real news. The audience (most of the electorate) is routinely surprised when they bump against the world of facts. And it isn't even just the MSM. The alternative media that young people are increasingly turning to are like the MSM only more so: aggressively forming their young audience's mind to SJW hardness before any reality can enter.

    A skeptical backlash is developing, but is it enough? Time will tell.

    OT (immer noch)

    A couple of cases involving the sexual assault and murder of young white women caught my attention earlier -- since then arrests have been made:

    Angelo Colon-Ortiz has been arrested in the death of Vanessa Marcotte -- no info on his immigration status.

    Photo Released Of Chanel Lewis, Murderer of New York Jogger, Karina Vetrano -- a black man, Chanel Lewis, has been arrested for killing Karina Vetrano.

    Both men arrested are non-white, an all-too-common and unpleasant reality for the media -- which is why you may not be aware of these cases.

    Lastly, a gofundme.com page has been set up for that chick who was punched in Berkeley yesterday -- goal is a paltry $80k -- some trolling in the donation comments -- 'America, Fuck Yeah' -- "LOL"

    Funny, I thought the opposite - that Eisenberg humanized Zuckerberg to an unlikely degree.

    There's just something about the amorphous, unformed quality of Zuckerberg's face that I find unsettling. Like a perpetual child's face on a grown man.

    It adds to the generally unpleasant reaction he provokes - that something's 'off'.

    I'll see your Boston Globe and raise you a NY Times:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/11/magazine/i-thought-i-understood-the-american-right-trump-proved-me-wrong.html

    He was "wrong" because he thought that American conservatism had rejected racism in the William Buckley mold but really it was the KKK in disguise all along. He "connects the dots" between the Klan of the 1920s (to which Trump's father supposedly belonged) and Trumpian conservatism today.

    One reason he made that error was that

    historians of conservatism, like historians in general, tend to be liberal, and are prone to liberalism’s traditions of politesse. It’s no surprise that we are attracted to polite subjects like “colorblind conservatism” or William F. Buckley.
     
    This reminds me of the old pat answer to the job interview question when you are asked what your biggest flaw is and you are supposed to answer that you work too hard.

    The whole thing continues in this obtuse, self-congratulatory fashion. Liberals are wonderful and conservatives have been racists all along and I just never noticed before because I'm a "glass half full" kind of guy, but now I'm woke the fact that Trump is in effect the direct successor to the Imperial Wizard of the KKK. I encourage Steve (or anyone else) to Fisk the whole stupid thing line by line. The article is encouraging in a way, in that if the Democrat Party continues to get its advice from idiots like this then they don't stand a chance. I wouldn't trust this guy to accurately summarize what happened last night on The Big Bang Theory, let alone deconstruct the roots of Trump's election.

    Another was how the Bush admin with the help of the MSM and PR firms generated public support for Desert Storm basically by turning the MSM into one vast echo chamber.

    And remember how anti-Trump the MSM was prior to him bombing Syria?

    It's unnecessary to make it a conspiracy theory. Not that there isn't one, but some things can be explained easily without it.

    Every right-thinking person in the media was already saying Syria needs to be bombed, Russia evil, etc. People tend to support a president who bombs countries. A show of strength is popular. Doing something media clamored for and that confirms their views makes them like you. Etc. Etc.

    Pinker lists some of the tortures in use in medieval Europe, including one I'd not heard of before - namely, placing a rat in a metal pipe, sealing one end, placing the open end against the bound victim's naked torso, then heating up the pipe.

    The only escape for the desperate rat was through the victim's torso.

    Although the cage around the head would be more frightening, the pipe is more creative.

    To keep that Roman head of hair, Zuck may use finasteride. Moobs are a slight possibility on finasteride, because the testosterone is blocked from being converted into DHT, and so aromatizes into estrogen. The levels are only about 15% higher than normal supposedly, so it is not that common.

    Then again, sometimes a moob is just a moob. It's not like the moobed-up entrants of The Biggest Loser were all ex-steroid users or finasteride takers. It's just one of those areas where fat accumulates in some people. One wonders in guys with the moob propensity, do their sisters have epic racks?

    The 65-85 crowd are particularly hard to sway. They cling to wistful notions of the Libpress still having credibility.

    I suppose British tabloids reported this at the time. German historian Ernst Nolte also claimed during the historians' controversy in the 1980s that Hitler had referred in 1943 to a rat cage, supposedly a Soviet method of torture. It may have been a common anti-communist allegation at the time (though I'm doubtful it really happened, may just have been a lurid myth).

Liberals are wonderful and conservatives have been racists all along and I just never noticed before because I’m a “glass half full” kind of guy, but now I’m woke the fact that Trump is in effect the direct successor to the Imperial Wizard of the KKK. I encourage Steve (or anyone else) to Fisk the whole stupid thing line by line. The article is encouraging in a way, in that if the Democrat Party continues to get its advice from idiots like this then they don’t stand a chance. I wouldn’t trust this guy to accurately summarize what happened last night on The Big Bang Theory, let alone deconstruct the roots of Trump’s election.

    That's a proper summary of the thing, other than he spends a lot of time name dropping various historians. He is sure to remember many little events where those of Anglo-Saxon heritage were mean to the Other; I expect that he has those events plastered on his bedroom wall. No mention of events that went the other way.

    Interesting that he notes at length the immigration acts of 1924; 1965; and Reagan's amnesty in 1986 -- of course, he spins them in service to his narrative; chortling about how immigrants weaken the conservative cause; but it at least acknowledges that the topic is on the table.
    , @Jenner Ickham Errican

    He was “wrong” because he thought that American conservatism had rejected racism in the William Buckley mold but really it was the KKK in disguise all along.
     
    It seems that Perlstein believes (given his article’s tone-deaf, smug conclusion) that the following is automatically discredited because it comes from a Klansman:

    Consider, for example, an essay published in 1926 by Hiram Evans, the imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, in the exceedingly mainstream North American Review. His subject was the decline of “Americanism.”

    Evans claimed to speak for an abused white majority, “the so-called Nordic race,” which, “with all its faults, has given the world almost the whole of modern civilization.” Evans, a former dentist, proposed that his was “a movement of plain people,” and acknowledged that this “lays us open to the charge of being hicks and ‘rubes’ and ‘drivers of secondhand Fords.’ ”

    But over the course of the last generation, he wrote, these good people “have found themselves increasingly uncomfortable, and finally deeply distressed,” watching a “moral breakdown” that was destroying a once-great nation.

    First, there was “confusion in thought and opinion, a groping and hesitancy about national affairs and private life alike, in sharp contrast to the clear, straightforward purposes of our earlier years.” Next, they found “the control of much of our industry and commerce taken over by strangers, who stacked the cards of success and prosperity against us,” and ultimately these strangers “came to dominate our government.”
     
  28. Here’s the “about us” page for the Koch Brothers’ “grassroots organization”:

    Founded in 2011, The LIBRE Initiative® is a project of Americans for Prosperity (AFP). AFP is a §501(c)(4) entity, as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. We are a non-partisan, non-profit grassroots organization that advances the principles and values of economic freedom to empower the U.S. Hispanic community so it can thrive and contribute to a more prosperous America.

    LIBRE is dedicated to informing the U.S. Hispanic community about the benefits of a constitutionally limited government, property rights, rule of law, sound money supply and free enterprise through a variety of community events, research and policy initiatives that protect our economic freedom.

    Our mission is to equip the Hispanic community with the tools they need to be prosperous. We are committed to developing a network of Hispanic pro-liberty activists across the United States so that our message reaches every corner of the country.

    Yeah, the first words that come to mind when thinking about Latin America are “rule of law” and “sound money supply”.

  29. Make immigration comprehensive again!

    I need comprehensive immigration reform. You need comprehensive immigration reform. He needs comprehensive immigration reform. She needs comprehensive immigration reform. Xe needs comprehensive immigration reform. They need comprehensive immigration reform. Pablo “They” Gomez needs comprehensive immigration reform. Non-binary gender non-conforming genderqueers need comprehensive immigration reform. All constituent groups representing every gender classification available to Facebook users, fifty-eight at the time of this writing, need comprehensive immigration reform. Everybody needs comprehensive immigration reform. Because comprehensive immigration reform is more important than life, water, food and oxygen themselves.

    I am a strong, solid advocate for good, clean, top flight, top drawer, strong, solid, robust, common sense, solid as a rock, solid as they come, desperately needed, way overdue, humanitarian, compassion-based comprehensive immigration reform. The kind of immigration reform that melts in your mouth, not in your hand. The kind of immigration reform that plumps when you cook it. The kind of immigration reform that just makes you feel good and shout for joy for a job well done.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will raise wages and salaries, strengthen national security, prevent terrorism, enhance our domestic crime-fighting ability, ensure that we continue to encourage the best and brightest to partake of the American dream, enhance our competitiveness and our ability to innovate, and make America more prosperous.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will make the economy more fair and equitable, help clean and preserve our environment, bolster Social Security and Medicare, aid the cause of reproductive rights and LGBTQIIA+ rights, drive a stake through the heart of bigotry, discrimination and Islamophobia, guarantee social justice for all, and make America more vibrant and diverse.

    It will also make immigration more comprehensive.

    The reason I advocate comprehensive immigration reform over other ideas is that I checked out the other ideas, and they just aren’t comprehensive, they just don’t do it for me in the comprehensiveness department. I really like the comprehensive nature of comprehensive immigration reform. The best part of comprehensive immigration reform is its comprehensiveness. With comprehensive immigration reform, I’ll be a’comprehensivin. My ultimate goal with immigration reform is to be comprehensiver than thou.

    I also have a soft spot in my heart for things that are comprehensive. From a little boy, I remember sitting at our dinner table many evenings, and my father would point his finger straight at me and give me a stern look, and he told me that if I ever got a chance to screw over the goyim, to do it completely and (his own word) “comprehensively.” He was adamant that I not waste any golden or silver or green opportunities. I’m glad to say that I’m finally living up to my father’s expectations. For his most recent birthday present, I had a wooden ventriloquist style caricature doll of myself made, and I call the doll Marc de la Comprehensiva. It’s his third favorite possession in the whole world, his second is his 1978 Lincoln Town Car which he hopes will run forever, (“Finer a Jew canoe will never be made” — Dad), and his first is his gold plated Talmud.

    The other kinds of immigration reform are also dangerous, because they rely on rhetoric such as “round them up and deport them all,” “build walls,” “make America great again.” That’s the kind of rhetoric that reminds me of Nazi Germany, and the Nazis gassed all ten of my grandmas to death at Auschwitz, a horror which my father personally witnessed and forever vowed to avenge with a now world famous phrase of his invention: “Never again.” Ten grandmas here, ten grandmas there, and that’s how we roll that odometer up to six million.

    It’s why internationally respected scholars and researchers like Glenn Beck have concluded that the Presidential candidates and Presidents who spew that kind of rhetoric are exactly like Hitler. They all run around bragging about their puny putrid pitiful little $10 billion fortunes, when the truth of the matter is that they took years to make that kind of money, I made my much larger $50 billion fortune almost overnight. And I mean that literally, because I often wake up and find out I’m worth a few billion more than when I went to sleep. Their fortunes are in old fashioned relics of the past, fuddy duddy stuff like buildings and real estate, and my fortune is in the asset of the future, Facebook stock. They had to make their money the old fashioned way, by earning it, and I made my fortune the new modern progressive way, scamming half the world to give me all their personal information in their tawdry pursuit for their cheap fifteen minutes of fame, so I can turn right around and sell it to Madison Avenue, the Mossad and the NSA. I made my money while I’m still young enough to enjoy spending it to break the back of the goyim.

    Thanks for letting me monetize your lives, by and by.

    You see, I stole someone else’s idea of invented a world-changing internet social media network, and it has brought me to the vestibule of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, immortality, and I’m also well on my way to being the world’s first trillionaire. The one missing ingredient is comprehensive immigration reform. At least that’s what a building full of Jewish lawyers who write all my immigration litanies and spiels tell me. Every time I go there to get new marching orders, everyone there starts rubbing their hands together. The strangest part of that is that I had to learn to shake these people’s hands in a really weird way before they started doing business with me. But I’m not going to dwell on it too much, and I’m not going to ask questions, because these are the kind of people who seem like they’ll bring down some major league hurt on your head if you ask too many questions. I’m in the business of becoming obscenely rich, not asking questions. Unfortunately, comprehensive immigration reform won’t solve the most vexing problem in my life: The wife always nagging me about buying her more shoes.

    When I think of comprehensive immigration reform, I think of the only antitode to an ill that has been ailing me for quite some time. Some cartoon frog follows me around everywhere I go throwing parentheses at me, and that damned Peter Thiel is way off in the back somewhere pointing his finger at me and laughing at me. The lack of comprehensive immigration reform is taxing my mental health.

    Sometimes, the other kinds of immigration reform wind up being scams. And believe me, I know a thing or three about scams. They promise to be comprehensive, but when you look at what you get, they wind up leaving out a lot of the comprehensiveness. Worse than that, you might get the full 100% comprehensiveness at first, but like a thief in the night, they break in and steal a lot of the comprehensiveness. That’s not the Marc Zuckurburg way, the fully comprehensive way. IEEE, ANSI and UL have certified a less than one ppb impurity ratio of the comprehensiveness in my immigration reform. I’m so nice that I’ll even throw in some extra added bonus comprehensiveness, 25% more free, no extra charge. I also guarantee the comprehensiveness in my immigration reform with a 7 year 70,000 mile limited powertrain warranty that also protects you from rust and corrosion. It covers you from bumper to bumper. It’s the best warranty in the immigration reform business.

    This is why poll after poll shows that people support comprehensive solutions to our immigration problems, instead of genocidal solutions that have Nazi rhetoric as their foundations, or solutions bereft of comprehensiveness. It’s why more and more people are giving up silly hobbies like diddling around with fishing lures, or telescopes, or collecting stamps, or sleeping, and joining in Marc’s Comprehensive Corps. People know that middle class greed hurts billionaires in need. What’s mine is mine, what’s yours will soon be mine. People know that source code is literally rotting in the fields. People know not to turn “corporate greed” into a pejorative, because I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I wouldn’t be the putz man I am today without corporate greed. I fly my corporate greed flag high, tall and proud.

    Our struggle for comprehensive immigration reform is righteous, albeit arduous. Very difficult, a very steep mountain to climb. The forces of reaction and xenophobia are well funded, their four extremist hate organizations all have bank accounts that run well into the tens of dollars. In contrast, all we have to work with are most billionaires, most corporations, almost all of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, almost all of academia, a majority of the full force of the Federal government, and (until recently) the full sympathy of the current Federal executive branch. We are locked in a real Goliath versus David struggle to speak power to truth. All we can hope for is that we wake up every morning surrounded by our fifteen morning servants to remind us that we have made it to live to fight another day. But the crusade led by the privileged, rich, organized and powerful against the dispossessed, broke, unorganized and weak is indeed on the right side of history in the current year, because I have bought all the historians, and the arc of history bends toward billionaires, because I hired a really strong guy from Norway to bend it.

    I know as I was growing up and going through school, especially Taking Over and Ruling the World 101 at Harvard, and I got an A in that class, I was taught that the best way to solve your problems is to get rich enough to buy them off. Either that or just wait around for the old man to kick off so you can inherit a piece of his mega-fortune, then use that money to buy off your problems. When life throws you lemons, hire a village full of undocumented Hondurans to pick them all up, and then have your butlers hoof it to Trader Joe’s to buy you some lemonade. I remember when I was in high school that we all worried about a problem called Y2K or Year 2000. Bill Gates solved his Year 2000 problems by buying the year 2000. Likewise, the status quo doesn’t bother me, because I have bought the status quo. When you’ve got the kind of money I do, you can buy lots of status quos. Just never enough pairs of shoes to satisfy your wife, evidently.

    There needs to be a core focus on comprehensive immigration reform for yet another critical reason — I visit a lot of these alt right websites and blogs on many days, and all their regular commenters do is whine and bellyache about their own selfish petty little concerns. They all be like: My country, my heritage, my millennia-old civilization, my people, my future, my ancestors, my posterity, my racial purity, my blonde hair, my blue eyes, my cartoon frog memes, my border security, my personal security, my quality livable neighborhoods, my affordable family formation, my community social altruism, my country’s economic well being, my fair and equitable distribution of income and wealth, me me me me me. What a bunch of greedy self-righteous cockypop! Not a one of them have the consideration to think about what I need, what I want. And it’s not like it would hurt — I think about me all the time, and it certainly hasn’t hurt me! Me thinking about me for the last [=(#CURRENTDATE-1984/05/14)] years has resulted in me accumulating a $50 billion fortune. If these alt right people would take the time to think about me, my fortune would be far larger. And that would be good for me. Comprehensive immigration reform would amount to a badly needed readjustment of our priorities.

    But if my plans fail, and my wife starts snitching to the Securities and Exchange Commission, as she has threatened to do several times when I say I’m not going to buy her any more shoes, I’ll have to hot foot it and be on the next red eye to my secret condo and my secret bank account with a few billion stashed aside in my extradition-free tax haven in southeast Asia. No way I’m gonna let the Feds turn me into Bernie Madoff’s cellmate; that sonofabitch snores so loudly that he’s in a North Carolina prison and I can hear him all the way over here in San Francisco. To think, I only married her because I’m trying to infiltrate the Chinese banking system on behalf of my tibe, and she and the kids we have together give me an “in.” Anyway, if I ever seem to go off the grid, that’s where I’ll be. Don’t come looking for me, especially if you’re a Fed. I do not anticipate failure, though, because my second-to-last ditch contingency involves a concept that some debbie downer prosecutors mistakenly call “extortion.” I hold the power of life and death over all of you; you’re going to see to it that I get my comprehensive immigration reform, and if you refuse, I will do worse than kill you — I’ll delete your Facebook pages. There have been cases of people dying from the apoplectic shock caused by the mental anguish of not having access to Facebook for more than four minutes.

    It’s also why, in spite of the fact that I know my bad reputation precedes me, for example, I keep hearing everyone behind my back calling me a two-faced crudweasel, and those are just the people that work for me, and are related to me, and are close friends of me, and also my wife, and those were also the first words out of my kid’s mouth, and also, for some reason I can’t figure out, people who know me for long enough wind up saying things behind my back like “Maybe Hitler had a point,” “Maybe I should give Hitler a second look,” and cruel things like that, I want to assure all of you that my support for comprehensive immigration reform is pure and genuine. I will never betray the cause, I will always be loyal, solid as a rock, dependable. So much so that I beg you that when you think of comprehensive immigration reform, you should instantly think of me, the great Marc Zuckurburg.

    It’s also why more and more people are saying every day, and you should too:

    Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!

    One reason he made that error was that

    historians of conservatism, like historians in general, tend to be liberal, and are prone to liberalism’s traditions of politesse. It’s no surprise that we are attracted to polite subjects like “colorblind conservatism” or William F. Buckley.

    You should have seen them spin NAFTA when Clinton and Limbaugh were promoting it. From newspapers to TV News, they were all for NAFTA and shut down the opposition in unison. The percentage of pro-NAFTA to anti-NAFTA opinion columns were 95 to 5.

    Another was how the Bush admin with the help of the MSM and PR firms generated public support for Desert Storm basically by turning the MSM into one vast echo chamber.

    And remember how anti-Trump the MSM was prior to him bombing Syria?

    How Many Raped English Girls Is The Economy Worth?

    The above post contains links to news stories about 'Asian' gangs sexually abusing (mostly underage) white girls in the UK -- the list is rather extensive, to say the least -- I know a few Brits who badmouth Trump, but when I ask them if they've ever expressed outrage to anyone (I know they've never said anything to me) about Rotherham etc, and the role of police and council authorities and the media in tolerating and covering it up, they always give me this funny 'WTF are you talking about?' reaction.

    There are some rumours going around in our circles about Theresa May, quietly, cautiously, they whisper discreetly, could it be possible, is it feasible that Theresa May might not be fully signed up to the Globalist master plan?...Time will tell, but it's a depressing sign of the times when we can become excited because the Prime Minister is not explicitly trying to eradicate the native British population...And yet even Theresa May's rather pathetic attempts to ride the populist tiger are too much for The Independent who've now started up a petition against May's proposed immigration reduction. In cahoots with ''Open Britain'' a new Left Wing think tank, they're attempting a rearguard action, the racists, bigots and little Englanders got Brexit, but we can't have reduced immigration too, that would be outrageous.

    OT (immer noch)

    A couple of cases involving the sexual assault and murder of young white women caught my attention earlier — since then arrests have been made:

    Angelo Colon-Ortiz has been arrested in the death of Vanessa Marcotte — no info on his immigration status.

    Photo Released Of Chanel Lewis, Murderer of New York Jogger, Karina Vetrano — a black man, Chanel Lewis, has been arrested for killing Karina Vetrano.

    Both men arrested are non-white, an all-too-common and unpleasant reality for the media — which is why you may not be aware of these cases.

    Lastly, a gofundme.com page has been set up for that chick who was punched in Berkeley yesterday — goal is a paltry $80k — some trolling in the donation comments — ‘America, Fuck Yeah’ — “LOL”

    historians of conservatism, like historians in general, tend to be liberal, and are prone to liberalism’s traditions of politesse. It’s no surprise that we are attracted to polite subjects like “colorblind conservatism” or William F. Buckley.
     
    This reminds me of the old pat answer to the job interview question when you are asked what your biggest flaw is and you are supposed to answer that you work too hard.

    The whole thing continues in this obtuse, self-congratulatory fashion. Liberals are wonderful and conservatives have been racists all along and I just never noticed before because I'm a "glass half full" kind of guy, but now I'm woke the fact that Trump is in effect the direct successor to the Imperial Wizard of the KKK. I encourage Steve (or anyone else) to Fisk the whole stupid thing line by line. The article is encouraging in a way, in that if the Democrat Party continues to get its advice from idiots like this then they don't stand a chance. I wouldn't trust this guy to accurately summarize what happened last night on The Big Bang Theory, let alone deconstruct the roots of Trump's election.

    He was “wrong” because he thought that American conservatism had rejected racism in the William Buckley mold but really it was the KKK in disguise all along.

    It seems that Perlstein believes (given his article’s tone-deaf, smug conclusion) that the following is automatically discredited because it comes from a Klansman:

    Consider, for example, an essay published in 1926 by Hiram Evans, the imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, in the exceedingly mainstream North American Review. His subject was the decline of “Americanism.”

    Evans claimed to speak for an abused white majority, “the so-called Nordic race,” which, “with all its faults, has given the world almost the whole of modern civilization.” Evans, a former dentist, proposed that his was “a movement of plain people,” and acknowledged that this “lays us open to the charge of being hicks and ‘rubes’ and ‘drivers of secondhand Fords.’ ”

    But over the course of the last generation, he wrote, these good people “have found themselves increasingly uncomfortable, and finally deeply distressed,” watching a “moral breakdown” that was destroying a once-great nation.

    First, there was “confusion in thought and opinion, a groping and hesitancy about national affairs and private life alike, in sharp contrast to the clear, straightforward purposes of our earlier years.” Next, they found “the control of much of our industry and commerce taken over by strangers, who stacked the cards of success and prosperity against us,” and ultimately these strangers “came to dominate our government.”

    "when I ask them ... about Rotherham etc ... they always give me this funny ‘WTF are you talking about?’ reaction"
     
    Yeah, I've found the same thing when talking to anyone outside the alt-right about, for example, Anthony Wiener, UVa Rape Hoax, Hillary's US-uranium-for-Russian-cash, dozens of black-on-white crimes locally vs. one celebrated white-on-black crime remotely, blue city ethnic cleansing, refugee rape epidemics, etc.: people are completely oblivious to the salient facts of our time. They react with anger or disbelief when I point one out.

    The MSM hasn't just been a purveyor of fake news, it is even more a suppressor of real news. The audience (most of the electorate) is routinely surprised when they bump against the world of facts. And it isn't even just the MSM. The alternative media that young people are increasingly turning to are like the MSM only more so: aggressively forming their young audience's mind to SJW hardness before any reality can enter.

    A skeptical backlash is developing, but is it enough? Time will tell.

    It would help if the right stuck to the facts. Let’s see:

    Pizzagate
    vicent foster conspiracy
    dumping chemicals into rivers is safe
    Coal pollution is safe
    Smoking is safe
    Trans fat is safe
    Global warming is based on fake data
    Fracking does not cause earthquakes.
    Obama was born in Kenya
    Tax cuts for the rich pay for themselves by increasing economic growth

    The common threads in these are protecting rich people who harm regular Americans for a profit or ways conservative media personalities can get ratings.

    If you don’t think the left exploits conservative lies like these to hurt our credibility on other issues, you aren’t paying attention.

    You can also be fashionable cynic and say the truth does not matter. Trump’s election is certainly evidence for this. But a lot of people do care. And we are not quite at the point yet where diversity means voting is completely a matter of race.

    Yep. It has to be admitted that conservatism can be a very ugly thing. All too often it's just an excuse for greed and viciousness.

    If you want to win hearts and minds you need something a bit more inspiring than Greed Is Good.
    , @Almost Missouri
    That's a peculiar list. I've never met a pro-trans fat conservative, for instance. And who is claiming coal pollution is good? As Steve has pointed out more than once, there is a lot of overlap between conservatism and conservation (of the environment) which the GOPe brain trust has failed to exploit (though Bush the Elder did a bit).

    The original person promoting the notion that Obama was born in Kenya was Obama himself. Was he telling a "conservative lie"?

    Tax cuts for the productive "rich" can indeed pay for themselves. Indeed they already did in the 1980s when Regan cut taxes and government revenues actually increased. So this isn't a lie; it's a historical fact. If you don't like that fact, that's an issue for you, but it doesn't make it untrue.

    I don't know how Vince Foster died, but it's certainly notable that a lot of people with damaging information about the Clintons have ended up dead or compromised over the years, so it's not unreasonable to ask if something more isn't going on.

    Similarly, Pizzagate also has a fact pattern of plausible wrongdoing, and the fact that the MSM steadfastly refuses to investigate while denouncing anyone who does only adds to the questions.

    And "global warming" ... is based on fake data. But if you don't see that for yourself, I don't expect to convince you, since like most of the rest of the list, these are tenets of religious dogmas, not actual facts. I've argued with enough religious zealots to know that reasoned refutation doesn't lead to their enlightenment, it leads to anger and resentment for depriving them of their idols.

    "It was a common punishment in Imperial China."

    - O'Brien, 1984

    Wikipedia claims Chinese Cheka members allegedly did this in Kiev during the Russian civil war:
    ” in Kiev, Chinese Cheka detachments placed rats in iron tubes sealed at one end with wire netting and the other placed against the body of a prisoner, with the tubes being heated until the rats gnawed through the victim’s body in an effort to escape”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Terror

    I suppose British tabloids reported this at the time. German historian Ernst Nolte also claimed during the historians’ controversy in the 1980s that Hitler had referred in 1943 to a rat cage, supposedly a Soviet method of torture. It may have been a common anti-communist allegation at the time (though I’m doubtful it really happened, may just have been a lurid myth).

    I'm going with Chekists, as Orwell/Blair was deep into Russian stuff at the time. He reviewed and was impressed by Zamyatin's (1923) "We" for Tribune (Labour Party parish news), 2 years before his influential bit of fan-fic re-imagining for a monoglot Anglo readership. Just possibly where a work from Uncle Joe's paradise may not have been permitted (I'm just trying to get our George off the fairly blatant plagiarism charge here, chaps). Huxley seems to have pillaged been inspired by it extensively as well, as Orwell points out (a tad waspishly) in that review.

  44. Facebook seems like Microsoft — a big behemoth filled with empire builders and unable to adapt to rapid technological change. Yes, both MS and Facebook will be valuable companies worth billions of dollars with considerable revenues — but are the world-dominators? Who the heck is on Facebook?

    Preening gays, women competing to be the hottest, but I repeat myself, look-at-me attention whores, mostly between the ages of 34-45. Not exactly the preferred advertiser target market: tweens and young women 18-34, where brand preferences are formed for a lifetime of purchasing. That tweener girl may not be buying shampoo on her own now, but she’ll nag Mommy to get it for her and a positive association with that shampoo will make her a lifetime purchaser as long as the cost is within shouting distances of other shampoos. Rinse and repeat for other consumer brands.

    Industrial products and luxury goods of course don’t care — irrelevant for the first and the “wrong sort” of marketing channel for the latter. [In the FT Alphachat the hipster millenial annoying host Cardiff Garcia made the rather revealing claim that the FT's luxury advertorial magazines like "How to Spend It" make the bulk of the FT's revenues.]

    Facebook is a cash cow. But like Microsoft, not growing in rapid amounts and not reaching more deeply and directly into people’s lives.

    People **OUGHT** to be worried about AI and “Augmented Reality.” Not those dorky VR stuff that has very limited use and requires massive computing power — but things like glasses showing an overlay of say, IR to Ultraviolet and beyond radio spectrum of people and objects around, to identifying people with various social media and other opinions (even through deduced purchase) all tied to the mobile mini-computer in your pocket.

    IF GoodWhites can instantly deduce through AR that you are a BadWhite, the witch-hunts will never end. And of course there are the non computer frontiers, re-wiring people into GoodWhites through gene therapy and the like, so you have a genetic hatred of White people as a GoodWhite, to “erase racism” or something along similar religious lines.

    The future is not a boot stamping a human face forever, its more and more powerful technology making marginal improvements on GoodWhite witch hunts and enabling otherwise failed thugs into powerful physical operators by technology as a commodity. Without smart phones and social media, there would be no flash mobs in the Summer looting and beating White people. When tech is a commodity even low grade thugs can move on a roughly even playing field to smarter people –

    UNLESS there is a maker-movement to seize the AR advantages first and gain that first-mover advantage. Imagine the social impact of AR glasses letting people see at a glance the criminal history of passing vibrant people with their awesome vibrancy — rape, attempted murder, robbery, assault, etc.

    You’d have a whole army of noticers.

    I remember Google Glass was a big deal that was supposed to change society a couple of years ago and then, nothing.

    If it really gets that bad between Goodwhites and Badwhites, moving to 3rd World countries is always an option. I must be in the minority here because I like European culture in the abstract, but I really don't like white people that much. They come across as incredibly snooty to me, compared to other cultures. But if I were walking down the streets in some hypothetical future in San Pedro Sula and saw a white person and received information through my Google Glass (which I would never wear) that they read Unz Review or liked NASCAR or watched Rules of Engagement, I probably wouldn't cross to the other side of the street like I usually do.

    Anger over this issue is intense in the regions where it happens. Mostly the Midlands/Yorkshire. It's less salient elsewhere. Unfortunately for the Labour Party this is its heartland. This scandal is going to keep Labour out of power for a generation.

    I wish you were right, but labour won Rotherham by their normal landslide following the scandal there. The idea that people would vote for a monkey with a red rose seems to hold true no matter what – if anything dopey, well meaning Jeremy Corbyn is far more toxic than the rape gangs ever were.

    Zuck may have developed a case of hypogonadism from steroid use which his wife finally got around to noticing.

    To keep that Roman head of hair, Zuck may use finasteride. Moobs are a slight possibility on finasteride, because the testosterone is blocked from being converted into DHT, and so aromatizes into estrogen. The levels are only about 15% higher than normal supposedly, so it is not that common.

    Then again, sometimes a moob is just a moob. It’s not like the moobed-up entrants of The Biggest Loser were all ex-steroid users or finasteride takers. It’s just one of those areas where fat accumulates in some people. One wonders in guys with the moob propensity, do their sisters have epic racks?

    You should have seen them spin NAFTA when Clinton and Limbaugh were promoting it. From newspapers to TV News, they were all for NAFTA and shut down the opposition in unison. The percentage of pro-NAFTA to anti-NAFTA opinion columns were 95 to 5.

    Another was how the Bush admin with the help of the MSM and PR firms generated public support for Desert Storm basically by turning the MSM into one vast echo chamber.

    And remember how anti-Trump the MSM was prior to him bombing Syria?

    Make immigration comprehensive again!

    I need comprehensive immigration reform. You need comprehensive immigration reform. He needs comprehensive immigration reform. She needs comprehensive immigration reform. Xe needs comprehensive immigration reform. They need comprehensive immigration reform. Pablo "They" Gomez needs comprehensive immigration reform. Non-binary gender non-conforming genderqueers need comprehensive immigration reform. All constituent groups representing every gender classification available to Facebook users, fifty-eight at the time of this writing, need comprehensive immigration reform. Everybody needs comprehensive immigration reform. Because comprehensive immigration reform is more important than life, water, food and oxygen themselves.

    I am a strong, solid advocate for good, clean, top flight, top drawer, strong, solid, robust, common sense, solid as a rock, solid as they come, desperately needed, way overdue, humanitarian, compassion-based comprehensive immigration reform. The kind of immigration reform that melts in your mouth, not in your hand. The kind of immigration reform that plumps when you cook it. The kind of immigration reform that just makes you feel good and shout for joy for a job well done.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will raise wages and salaries, strengthen national security, prevent terrorism, enhance our domestic crime-fighting ability, ensure that we continue to encourage the best and brightest to partake of the American dream, enhance our competitiveness and our ability to innovate, and make America more prosperous.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will make the economy more fair and equitable, help clean and preserve our environment, bolster Social Security and Medicare, aid the cause of reproductive rights and LGBTQIIA+ rights, drive a stake through the heart of bigotry, discrimination and Islamophobia, guarantee social justice for all, and make America more vibrant and diverse.

    It will also make immigration more comprehensive.

    The reason I advocate comprehensive immigration reform over other ideas is that I checked out the other ideas, and they just aren't comprehensive, they just don't do it for me in the comprehensiveness department. I really like the comprehensive nature of comprehensive immigration reform. The best part of comprehensive immigration reform is its comprehensiveness. With comprehensive immigration reform, I'll be a'comprehensivin. My ultimate goal with immigration reform is to be comprehensiver than thou.

    I also have a soft spot in my heart for things that are comprehensive. From a little boy, I remember sitting at our dinner table many evenings, and my father would point his finger straight at me and give me a stern look, and he told me that if I ever got a chance to screw over the goyim, to do it completely and (his own word) "comprehensively." He was adamant that I not waste any golden or silver or green opportunities. I'm glad to say that I'm finally living up to my father's expectations. For his most recent birthday present, I had a wooden ventriloquist style caricature doll of myself made, and I call the doll Marc de la Comprehensiva. It's his third favorite possession in the whole world, his second is his 1978 Lincoln Town Car which he hopes will run forever, ("Finer a Jew canoe will never be made" -- Dad), and his first is his gold plated Talmud.

    The other kinds of immigration reform are also dangerous, because they rely on rhetoric such as "round them up and deport them all," "build walls," "make America great again." That's the kind of rhetoric that reminds me of Nazi Germany, and the Nazis gassed all ten of my grandmas to death at Auschwitz, a horror which my father personally witnessed and forever vowed to avenge with a now world famous phrase of his invention: "Never again." Ten grandmas here, ten grandmas there, and that's how we roll that odometer up to six million.

    It's why internationally respected scholars and researchers like Glenn Beck have concluded that the Presidential candidates and Presidents who spew that kind of rhetoric are exactly like Hitler. They all run around bragging about their puny putrid pitiful little $10 billion fortunes, when the truth of the matter is that they took years to make that kind of money, I made my much larger $50 billion fortune almost overnight. And I mean that literally, because I often wake up and find out I'm worth a few billion more than when I went to sleep. Their fortunes are in old fashioned relics of the past, fuddy duddy stuff like buildings and real estate, and my fortune is in the asset of the future, Facebook stock. They had to make their money the old fashioned way, by earning it, and I made my fortune the new modern progressive way, scamming half the world to give me all their personal information in their tawdry pursuit for their cheap fifteen minutes of fame, so I can turn right around and sell it to Madison Avenue, the Mossad and the NSA. I made my money while I'm still young enough to enjoy spending it to break the back of the goyim.

    Thanks for letting me monetize your lives, by and by.

    You see, I stole someone else's idea of invented a world-changing internet social media network, and it has brought me to the vestibule of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, immortality, and I'm also well on my way to being the world's first trillionaire. The one missing ingredient is comprehensive immigration reform. At least that's what a building full of Jewish lawyers who write all my immigration litanies and spiels tell me. Every time I go there to get new marching orders, everyone there starts rubbing their hands together. The strangest part of that is that I had to learn to shake these people's hands in a really weird way before they started doing business with me. But I'm not going to dwell on it too much, and I'm not going to ask questions, because these are the kind of people who seem like they'll bring down some major league hurt on your head if you ask too many questions. I'm in the business of becoming obscenely rich, not asking questions. Unfortunately, comprehensive immigration reform won't solve the most vexing problem in my life: The wife always nagging me about buying her more shoes.

    When I think of comprehensive immigration reform, I think of the only antitode to an ill that has been ailing me for quite some time. Some cartoon frog follows me around everywhere I go throwing parentheses at me, and that damned Peter Thiel is way off in the back somewhere pointing his finger at me and laughing at me. The lack of comprehensive immigration reform is taxing my mental health.

    Sometimes, the other kinds of immigration reform wind up being scams. And believe me, I know a thing or three about scams. They promise to be comprehensive, but when you look at what you get, they wind up leaving out a lot of the comprehensiveness. Worse than that, you might get the full 100% comprehensiveness at first, but like a thief in the night, they break in and steal a lot of the comprehensiveness. That's not the Marc Zuckurburg way, the fully comprehensive way. IEEE, ANSI and UL have certified a less than one ppb impurity ratio of the comprehensiveness in my immigration reform. I'm so nice that I'll even throw in some extra added bonus comprehensiveness, 25% more free, no extra charge. I also guarantee the comprehensiveness in my immigration reform with a 7 year 70,000 mile limited powertrain warranty that also protects you from rust and corrosion. It covers you from bumper to bumper. It's the best warranty in the immigration reform business.

    This is why poll after poll shows that people support comprehensive solutions to our immigration problems, instead of genocidal solutions that have Nazi rhetoric as their foundations, or solutions bereft of comprehensiveness. It's why more and more people are giving up silly hobbies like diddling around with fishing lures, or telescopes, or collecting stamps, or sleeping, and joining in Marc's Comprehensive Corps. People know that middle class greed hurts billionaires in need. What's mine is mine, what's yours will soon be mine. People know that source code is literally rotting in the fields. People know not to turn "corporate greed" into a pejorative, because I wouldn't be where I am today, and I wouldn't be the putz man I am today without corporate greed. I fly my corporate greed flag high, tall and proud.

    Our struggle for comprehensive immigration reform is righteous, albeit arduous. Very difficult, a very steep mountain to climb. The forces of reaction and xenophobia are well funded, their four extremist hate organizations all have bank accounts that run well into the tens of dollars. In contrast, all we have to work with are most billionaires, most corporations, almost all of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, almost all of academia, a majority of the full force of the Federal government, and (until recently) the full sympathy of the current Federal executive branch. We are locked in a real Goliath versus David struggle to speak power to truth. All we can hope for is that we wake up every morning surrounded by our fifteen morning servants to remind us that we have made it to live to fight another day. But the crusade led by the privileged, rich, organized and powerful against the dispossessed, broke, unorganized and weak is indeed on the right side of history in the current year, because I have bought all the historians, and the arc of history bends toward billionaires, because I hired a really strong guy from Norway to bend it.

    I know as I was growing up and going through school, especially Taking Over and Ruling the World 101 at Harvard, and I got an A in that class, I was taught that the best way to solve your problems is to get rich enough to buy them off. Either that or just wait around for the old man to kick off so you can inherit a piece of his mega-fortune, then use that money to buy off your problems. When life throws you lemons, hire a village full of undocumented Hondurans to pick them all up, and then have your butlers hoof it to Trader Joe's to buy you some lemonade. I remember when I was in high school that we all worried about a problem called Y2K or Year 2000. Bill Gates solved his Year 2000 problems by buying the year 2000. Likewise, the status quo doesn't bother me, because I have bought the status quo. When you've got the kind of money I do, you can buy lots of status quos. Just never enough pairs of shoes to satisfy your wife, evidently.

    There needs to be a core focus on comprehensive immigration reform for yet another critical reason -- I visit a lot of these alt right websites and blogs on many days, and all their regular commenters do is whine and bellyache about their own selfish petty little concerns. They all be like: My country, my heritage, my millennia-old civilization, my people, my future, my ancestors, my posterity, my racial purity, my blonde hair, my blue eyes, my cartoon frog memes, my border security, my personal security, my quality livable neighborhoods, my affordable family formation, my community social altruism, my country's economic well being, my fair and equitable distribution of income and wealth, me me me me me. What a bunch of greedy self-righteous cockypop! Not a one of them have the consideration to think about what I need, what I want. And it's not like it would hurt -- I think about me all the time, and it certainly hasn't hurt me! Me thinking about me for the last [=(#CURRENTDATE-1984/05/14)] years has resulted in me accumulating a $50 billion fortune. If these alt right people would take the time to think about me, my fortune would be far larger. And that would be good for me. Comprehensive immigration reform would amount to a badly needed readjustment of our priorities.

    But if my plans fail, and my wife starts snitching to the Securities and Exchange Commission, as she has threatened to do several times when I say I'm not going to buy her any more shoes, I'll have to hot foot it and be on the next red eye to my secret condo and my secret bank account with a few billion stashed aside in my extradition-free tax haven in southeast Asia. No way I'm gonna let the Feds turn me into Bernie Madoff's cellmate; that sonofabitch snores so loudly that he's in a North Carolina prison and I can hear him all the way over here in San Francisco. To think, I only married her because I'm trying to infiltrate the Chinese banking system on behalf of my tibe, and she and the kids we have together give me an "in." Anyway, if I ever seem to go off the grid, that's where I'll be. Don't come looking for me, especially if you're a Fed. I do not anticipate failure, though, because my second-to-last ditch contingency involves a concept that some debbie downer prosecutors mistakenly call "extortion." I hold the power of life and death over all of you; you're going to see to it that I get my comprehensive immigration reform, and if you refuse, I will do worse than kill you -- I'll delete your Facebook pages. There have been cases of people dying from the apoplectic shock caused by the mental anguish of not having access to Facebook for more than four minutes.

    It's also why, in spite of the fact that I know my bad reputation precedes me, for example, I keep hearing everyone behind my back calling me a two-faced crudweasel, and those are just the people that work for me, and are related to me, and are close friends of me, and also my wife, and those were also the first words out of my kid's mouth, and also, for some reason I can't figure out, people who know me for long enough wind up saying things behind my back like "Maybe Hitler had a point," "Maybe I should give Hitler a second look," and cruel things like that, I want to assure all of you that my support for comprehensive immigration reform is pure and genuine. I will never betray the cause, I will always be loyal, solid as a rock, dependable. So much so that I beg you that when you think of comprehensive immigration reform, you should instantly think of me, the great Marc Zuckurburg.

    It's also why more and more people are saying every day, and you should too:

    Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!

    Wikipedia claims Chinese Cheka members allegedly did this in Kiev during the Russian civil war:
    " in Kiev, Chinese Cheka detachments placed rats in iron tubes sealed at one end with wire netting and the other placed against the body of a prisoner, with the tubes being heated until the rats gnawed through the victim's body in an effort to escape"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Terror

    I suppose British tabloids reported this at the time. German historian Ernst Nolte also claimed during the historians' controversy in the 1980s that Hitler had referred in 1943 to a rat cage, supposedly a Soviet method of torture. It may have been a common anti-communist allegation at the time (though I'm doubtful it really happened, may just have been a lurid myth).

    I don't trust Wikipedia either, but I did a bit of searching around in the net, and it seems that those claims about Chinese Cheka members using the rat torture were spread in Western/Central Europe by anti-communist Russian émigrés during the 1920s. No idea if Orwell got the idea for the rat torture in 1984 from that source, but at least it doesn't seem unlikely.

    Zuck may have developed a case of hypogonadism from steroid use which his wife finally got around to noticing.

    To keep that Roman head of hair, Zuck may use finasteride. Moobs are a slight possibility on finasteride, because the testosterone is blocked from being converted into DHT, and so aromatizes into estrogen. The levels are only about 15% higher than normal supposedly, so it is not that common.

    Then again, sometimes a moob is just a moob. It's not like the moobed-up entrants of The Biggest Loser were all ex-steroid users or finasteride takers. It's just one of those areas where fat accumulates in some people. One wonders in guys with the moob propensity, do their sisters have epic racks? It would seem like one of those things that the genetics for extra awesomeness in one sex might be a combination of X or Y chromosomes plus additional non-sex related genes.

    Photo Released Of Chanel Lewis, Murderer of New York Jogger, Karina Vetrano -- a black man, Chanel Lewis, has been arrested for killing Karina Vetrano.

    Both men arrested are non-white, an all-too-common and unpleasant reality for the media -- which is why you may not be aware of these cases.

    Lastly, a gofundme.com page has been set up for that chick who was punched in Berkeley yesterday -- goal is a paltry $80k -- some trolling in the donation comments -- 'America, Fuck Yeah' -- "LOL"

    One extremely important social aspect of Facebook is the normalization of the perverse.

    That is, it used to be people with perverse inclinations could be shamed, ostracized, which would naturally lead them to seek professional help to manage their problems. Now, with Facebook, you can find a “Furries” group, for example, to arrange your social register amongst people who suffer from the same mental illness, even coordinate conventions, which entirely bypasses what used to be considered social norms, and live in your own crooked little world. A world where people who DON’T like to dress up in animal costumes to have anonymous sex are considered outliers.

    Furthermore, I don’t think middle-aged men who demand to be considered as 6 year old girls (or 12 year old boys) could have “thrived” before social media made it possible to “normalize” this behavior:

    Facebook allows the pathological to lean into their pathology without social repercussions.

    That’s a peculiar list. I’ve never met a pro-trans fat conservative, for instance. And who is claiming coal pollution is good? As Steve has pointed out more than once, there is a lot of overlap between conservatism and conservation (of the environment) which the GOPe brain trust has failed to exploit (though Bush the Elder did a bit).

    The original person promoting the notion that Obama was born in Kenya was Obama himself. Was he telling a “conservative lie”?

    Tax cuts for the productive “rich” can indeed pay for themselves. Indeed they already did in the 1980s when Regan cut taxes and government revenues actually increased. So this isn’t a lie; it’s a historical fact. If you don’t like that fact, that’s an issue for you, but it doesn’t make it untrue.

    I don’t know how Vince Foster died, but it’s certainly notable that a lot of people with damaging information about the Clintons have ended up dead or compromised over the years, so it’s not unreasonable to ask if something more isn’t going on.

    Similarly, Pizzagate also has a fact pattern of plausible wrongdoing, and the fact that the MSM steadfastly refuses to investigate while denouncing anyone who does only adds to the questions.

    And “global warming” … is based on fake data. But if you don’t see that for yourself, I don’t expect to convince you, since like most of the rest of the list, these are tenets of religious dogmas, not actual facts. I’ve argued with enough religious zealots to know that reasoned refutation doesn’t lead to their enlightenment, it leads to anger and resentment for depriving them of their idols.

    There’s just something about the amorphous, unformed quality of Zuckerberg’s face that I find unsettling. Like a perpetual child’s face on a grown man.

    It adds to the generally unpleasant reaction he provokes – that something’s ‘off’.

    " a large, vicious rat enclosed in a cage around his head, with the intent of ripping his face off bit by bit in a frenzy."

    Supposedly that was one of the methods of torture employed by the Bolshevist Cheka during the Russian civil war, and I suppose that's where Orwell got the idea from. Not sure though if that really happenend or is just a myth.

    ” a large, vicious rat enclosed in a cage around his head, with the intent of ripping his face off bit by bit in a frenzy.”

    Pinker lists some of the tortures in use in medieval Europe, including one I’d not heard of before – namely, placing a rat in a metal pipe, sealing one end, placing the open end against the bound victim’s naked torso, then heating up the pipe.

    The only escape for the desperate rat was through the victim’s torso.

    Although the cage around the head would be more frightening, the pipe is more creative.

    Interested readers may want to look at Lawrence Dennis's The Coming American Fascism (1936), especially the chapter on how the American public ought to be persuaded to abandon political autonomy. James Burnham and Aldous Huxley and others are helpful, too, in understanding how people can be induced to become automatons that still believe against the evidence they retain moral choice. I sometimes think of our masters as super-Eloi, in which local pols and intellectuals figure as company grade Eloi, and the rest of us Morlocks.

    Nah, the Eloi were the cattle and the prey of the Morlocks. Which makes them the Morlocks, and us the Eloi.

    A couple of cases involving the sexual assault and murder of young white women caught my attention earlier -- since then arrests have been made:

    Angelo Colon-Ortiz has been arrested in the death of Vanessa Marcotte -- no info on his immigration status.

    Photo Released Of Chanel Lewis, Murderer of New York Jogger, Karina Vetrano -- a black man, Chanel Lewis, has been arrested for killing Karina Vetrano.

    Both men arrested are non-white, an all-too-common and unpleasant reality for the media -- which is why you may not be aware of these cases.

    Lastly, a gofundme.com page has been set up for that chick who was punched in Berkeley yesterday -- goal is a paltry $80k -- some trolling in the donation comments -- 'America, Fuck Yeah' -- "LOL"

    Wikipedia claims Chinese Cheka members allegedly did this in Kiev during the Russian civil war:
    " in Kiev, Chinese Cheka detachments placed rats in iron tubes sealed at one end with wire netting and the other placed against the body of a prisoner, with the tubes being heated until the rats gnawed through the victim's body in an effort to escape"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Terror

    I suppose British tabloids reported this at the time. German historian Ernst Nolte also claimed during the historians' controversy in the 1980s that Hitler had referred in 1943 to a rat cage, supposedly a Soviet method of torture. It may have been a common anti-communist allegation at the time (though I'm doubtful it really happened, may just have been a lurid myth).

    I’m going with Chekists, as Orwell/Blair was deep into Russian stuff at the time. He reviewed and was impressed by Zamyatin’s (1923) “We” for Tribune (Labour Party parish news), 2 years before his influential bit of fan-fic re-imagining for a monoglot Anglo readership. Just possibly where a work from Uncle Joe’s paradise may not have been permitted (I’m just trying to get our George off the fairly blatant plagiarism charge here, chaps). Huxley seems to have pillaged been inspired by it extensively as well, as Orwell points out (a tad waspishly) in that review.

    Make immigration comprehensive again!

    I need comprehensive immigration reform. You need comprehensive immigration reform. He needs comprehensive immigration reform. She needs comprehensive immigration reform. Xe needs comprehensive immigration reform. They need comprehensive immigration reform. Pablo "They" Gomez needs comprehensive immigration reform. Non-binary gender non-conforming genderqueers need comprehensive immigration reform. All constituent groups representing every gender classification available to Facebook users, fifty-eight at the time of this writing, need comprehensive immigration reform. Everybody needs comprehensive immigration reform. Because comprehensive immigration reform is more important than life, water, food and oxygen themselves.

    I am a strong, solid advocate for good, clean, top flight, top drawer, strong, solid, robust, common sense, solid as a rock, solid as they come, desperately needed, way overdue, humanitarian, compassion-based comprehensive immigration reform. The kind of immigration reform that melts in your mouth, not in your hand. The kind of immigration reform that plumps when you cook it. The kind of immigration reform that just makes you feel good and shout for joy for a job well done.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will raise wages and salaries, strengthen national security, prevent terrorism, enhance our domestic crime-fighting ability, ensure that we continue to encourage the best and brightest to partake of the American dream, enhance our competitiveness and our ability to innovate, and make America more prosperous.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will make the economy more fair and equitable, help clean and preserve our environment, bolster Social Security and Medicare, aid the cause of reproductive rights and LGBTQIIA+ rights, drive a stake through the heart of bigotry, discrimination and Islamophobia, guarantee social justice for all, and make America more vibrant and diverse.

    It will also make immigration more comprehensive.

    The reason I advocate comprehensive immigration reform over other ideas is that I checked out the other ideas, and they just aren't comprehensive, they just don't do it for me in the comprehensiveness department. I really like the comprehensive nature of comprehensive immigration reform. The best part of comprehensive immigration reform is its comprehensiveness. With comprehensive immigration reform, I'll be a'comprehensivin. My ultimate goal with immigration reform is to be comprehensiver than thou.

    I also have a soft spot in my heart for things that are comprehensive. From a little boy, I remember sitting at our dinner table many evenings, and my father would point his finger straight at me and give me a stern look, and he told me that if I ever got a chance to screw over the goyim, to do it completely and (his own word) "comprehensively." He was adamant that I not waste any golden or silver or green opportunities. I'm glad to say that I'm finally living up to my father's expectations. For his most recent birthday present, I had a wooden ventriloquist style caricature doll of myself made, and I call the doll Marc de la Comprehensiva. It's his third favorite possession in the whole world, his second is his 1978 Lincoln Town Car which he hopes will run forever, ("Finer a Jew canoe will never be made" -- Dad), and his first is his gold plated Talmud.

    The other kinds of immigration reform are also dangerous, because they rely on rhetoric such as "round them up and deport them all," "build walls," "make America great again." That's the kind of rhetoric that reminds me of Nazi Germany, and the Nazis gassed all ten of my grandmas to death at Auschwitz, a horror which my father personally witnessed and forever vowed to avenge with a now world famous phrase of his invention: "Never again." Ten grandmas here, ten grandmas there, and that's how we roll that odometer up to six million.

    It's why internationally respected scholars and researchers like Glenn Beck have concluded that the Presidential candidates and Presidents who spew that kind of rhetoric are exactly like Hitler. They all run around bragging about their puny putrid pitiful little $10 billion fortunes, when the truth of the matter is that they took years to make that kind of money, I made my much larger $50 billion fortune almost overnight. And I mean that literally, because I often wake up and find out I'm worth a few billion more than when I went to sleep. Their fortunes are in old fashioned relics of the past, fuddy duddy stuff like buildings and real estate, and my fortune is in the asset of the future, Facebook stock. They had to make their money the old fashioned way, by earning it, and I made my fortune the new modern progressive way, scamming half the world to give me all their personal information in their tawdry pursuit for their cheap fifteen minutes of fame, so I can turn right around and sell it to Madison Avenue, the Mossad and the NSA. I made my money while I'm still young enough to enjoy spending it to break the back of the goyim.

    Thanks for letting me monetize your lives, by and by.

    You see, I stole someone else's idea of invented a world-changing internet social media network, and it has brought me to the vestibule of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, immortality, and I'm also well on my way to being the world's first trillionaire. The one missing ingredient is comprehensive immigration reform. At least that's what a building full of Jewish lawyers who write all my immigration litanies and spiels tell me. Every time I go there to get new marching orders, everyone there starts rubbing their hands together. The strangest part of that is that I had to learn to shake these people's hands in a really weird way before they started doing business with me. But I'm not going to dwell on it too much, and I'm not going to ask questions, because these are the kind of people who seem like they'll bring down some major league hurt on your head if you ask too many questions. I'm in the business of becoming obscenely rich, not asking questions. Unfortunately, comprehensive immigration reform won't solve the most vexing problem in my life: The wife always nagging me about buying her more shoes.

    When I think of comprehensive immigration reform, I think of the only antitode to an ill that has been ailing me for quite some time. Some cartoon frog follows me around everywhere I go throwing parentheses at me, and that damned Peter Thiel is way off in the back somewhere pointing his finger at me and laughing at me. The lack of comprehensive immigration reform is taxing my mental health.

    Sometimes, the other kinds of immigration reform wind up being scams. And believe me, I know a thing or three about scams. They promise to be comprehensive, but when you look at what you get, they wind up leaving out a lot of the comprehensiveness. Worse than that, you might get the full 100% comprehensiveness at first, but like a thief in the night, they break in and steal a lot of the comprehensiveness. That's not the Marc Zuckurburg way, the fully comprehensive way. IEEE, ANSI and UL have certified a less than one ppb impurity ratio of the comprehensiveness in my immigration reform. I'm so nice that I'll even throw in some extra added bonus comprehensiveness, 25% more free, no extra charge. I also guarantee the comprehensiveness in my immigration reform with a 7 year 70,000 mile limited powertrain warranty that also protects you from rust and corrosion. It covers you from bumper to bumper. It's the best warranty in the immigration reform business.

    This is why poll after poll shows that people support comprehensive solutions to our immigration problems, instead of genocidal solutions that have Nazi rhetoric as their foundations, or solutions bereft of comprehensiveness. It's why more and more people are giving up silly hobbies like diddling around with fishing lures, or telescopes, or collecting stamps, or sleeping, and joining in Marc's Comprehensive Corps. People know that middle class greed hurts billionaires in need. What's mine is mine, what's yours will soon be mine. People know that source code is literally rotting in the fields. People know not to turn "corporate greed" into a pejorative, because I wouldn't be where I am today, and I wouldn't be the putz man I am today without corporate greed. I fly my corporate greed flag high, tall and proud.

    Our struggle for comprehensive immigration reform is righteous, albeit arduous. Very difficult, a very steep mountain to climb. The forces of reaction and xenophobia are well funded, their four extremist hate organizations all have bank accounts that run well into the tens of dollars. In contrast, all we have to work with are most billionaires, most corporations, almost all of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, almost all of academia, a majority of the full force of the Federal government, and (until recently) the full sympathy of the current Federal executive branch. We are locked in a real Goliath versus David struggle to speak power to truth. All we can hope for is that we wake up every morning surrounded by our fifteen morning servants to remind us that we have made it to live to fight another day. But the crusade led by the privileged, rich, organized and powerful against the dispossessed, broke, unorganized and weak is indeed on the right side of history in the current year, because I have bought all the historians, and the arc of history bends toward billionaires, because I hired a really strong guy from Norway to bend it.

    I know as I was growing up and going through school, especially Taking Over and Ruling the World 101 at Harvard, and I got an A in that class, I was taught that the best way to solve your problems is to get rich enough to buy them off. Either that or just wait around for the old man to kick off so you can inherit a piece of his mega-fortune, then use that money to buy off your problems. When life throws you lemons, hire a village full of undocumented Hondurans to pick them all up, and then have your butlers hoof it to Trader Joe's to buy you some lemonade. I remember when I was in high school that we all worried about a problem called Y2K or Year 2000. Bill Gates solved his Year 2000 problems by buying the year 2000. Likewise, the status quo doesn't bother me, because I have bought the status quo. When you've got the kind of money I do, you can buy lots of status quos. Just never enough pairs of shoes to satisfy your wife, evidently.

    There needs to be a core focus on comprehensive immigration reform for yet another critical reason -- I visit a lot of these alt right websites and blogs on many days, and all their regular commenters do is whine and bellyache about their own selfish petty little concerns. They all be like: My country, my heritage, my millennia-old civilization, my people, my future, my ancestors, my posterity, my racial purity, my blonde hair, my blue eyes, my cartoon frog memes, my border security, my personal security, my quality livable neighborhoods, my affordable family formation, my community social altruism, my country's economic well being, my fair and equitable distribution of income and wealth, me me me me me. What a bunch of greedy self-righteous cockypop! Not a one of them have the consideration to think about what I need, what I want. And it's not like it would hurt -- I think about me all the time, and it certainly hasn't hurt me! Me thinking about me for the last [=(#CURRENTDATE-1984/05/14)] years has resulted in me accumulating a $50 billion fortune. If these alt right people would take the time to think about me, my fortune would be far larger. And that would be good for me. Comprehensive immigration reform would amount to a badly needed readjustment of our priorities.

    But if my plans fail, and my wife starts snitching to the Securities and Exchange Commission, as she has threatened to do several times when I say I'm not going to buy her any more shoes, I'll have to hot foot it and be on the next red eye to my secret condo and my secret bank account with a few billion stashed aside in my extradition-free tax haven in southeast Asia. No way I'm gonna let the Feds turn me into Bernie Madoff's cellmate; that sonofabitch snores so loudly that he's in a North Carolina prison and I can hear him all the way over here in San Francisco. To think, I only married her because I'm trying to infiltrate the Chinese banking system on behalf of my tibe, and she and the kids we have together give me an "in." Anyway, if I ever seem to go off the grid, that's where I'll be. Don't come looking for me, especially if you're a Fed. I do not anticipate failure, though, because my second-to-last ditch contingency involves a concept that some debbie downer prosecutors mistakenly call "extortion." I hold the power of life and death over all of you; you're going to see to it that I get my comprehensive immigration reform, and if you refuse, I will do worse than kill you -- I'll delete your Facebook pages. There have been cases of people dying from the apoplectic shock caused by the mental anguish of not having access to Facebook for more than four minutes.

    It's also why, in spite of the fact that I know my bad reputation precedes me, for example, I keep hearing everyone behind my back calling me a two-faced crudweasel, and those are just the people that work for me, and are related to me, and are close friends of me, and also my wife, and those were also the first words out of my kid's mouth, and also, for some reason I can't figure out, people who know me for long enough wind up saying things behind my back like "Maybe Hitler had a point," "Maybe I should give Hitler a second look," and cruel things like that, I want to assure all of you that my support for comprehensive immigration reform is pure and genuine. I will never betray the cause, I will always be loyal, solid as a rock, dependable. So much so that I beg you that when you think of comprehensive immigration reform, you should instantly think of me, the great Marc Zuckurburg.

    It's also why more and more people are saying every day, and you should too:

    Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!

    "when I ask them ... about Rotherham etc ... they always give me this funny ‘WTF are you talking about?’ reaction"
     
    Yeah, I've found the same thing when talking to anyone outside the alt-right about, for example, Anthony Wiener, UVa Rape Hoax, Hillary's US-uranium-for-Russian-cash, dozens of black-on-white crimes locally vs. one celebrated white-on-black crime remotely, blue city ethnic cleansing, refugee rape epidemics, etc.: people are completely oblivious to the salient facts of our time. They react with anger or disbelief when I point one out.

    The MSM hasn't just been a purveyor of fake news, it is even more a suppressor of real news. The audience (most of the electorate) is routinely surprised when they bump against the world of facts. And it isn't even just the MSM. The alternative media that young people are increasingly turning to are like the MSM only more so: aggressively forming their young audience's mind to SJW hardness before any reality can enter.

    A skeptical backlash is developing, but is it enough? Time will tell.

    The 65-85 crowd are particularly hard to sway. They cling to wistful notions of the Libpress still having credibility. The problem is convincing them is that the LibPress’s narrative shaping is as much about obscuring, omitting & fibbing about events as it is about bald face lying (then issuing a muted correction after the damage is done).
