    I agree that it’s a bit much to make this “news,” but I certainly don’t mind if these kids are banned, in the same way I don’t mind if white kids were banned for using the n-word or black kids were banned for calling a white person “white devil” or something.

  5. If the police patrolled white communities with the same violence that they patrol poor black neighborhoods, there would be a revolution. Every black man in America faces a symbolic chokehold every time he leaves his home.
    Cops routinely hurt and humiliate black people because that is what they are paid to do. Virtually every objective investigation of a US law enforcement agency finds that the police, as policy, treat African Americans with contempt.
    All this has to stop.
    Lindsey Vonn, Kim Kardashian and Heidi Klum chose the right side by mixing with black blood and they should be welcomed into the Black Gene pool.
    White women will be the Weapon that Black men will use in this virtual race war against White supremacy.

Located at Western and Belmont it was a fair to middlin’ place to kill a Saturday or Sunday. I still recall my sisters’ shrieks as we rode the Roloplane with my dad. The park had a pretty fast decline once residents of the Cabrini-Green housing project started showing up. Fights, robberies, and harassment of young girls were commonplace and the park eventually shut down when non POC stopped going.

    whistle blower says disney revenue is overstated by 6 BILLION DOLLARS
    When disney told me that revenues keep going up, despite all their products getting shittier, i completely believe it! An international media mega-corporation that specializes in created manufactured fantasies would never tell me lies!

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/disney-whistleblower-told-sec-the-company-inflated-revenue-for-years-2019-08-19

    >Disney whistle blower told SEC the company inflated revenue for years
    >A former Walt Disney Co. accountant says she has filed a series of whistleblower tips with the Securities and Exchange Commission alleging the company has materially overstated revenue for years.
    >Sandra Kuba, formerly a senior financial analyst in Disney’s DIS, +0.07% revenue-operations department who worked for the company for 18 years, alleges that employees working in the parks-and-resorts business segment systematically overstated revenue by billions of dollars by exploiting weaknesses in the company’s accounting software.
    >Kuba has made two additional whistleblower filings since leaving the firm, including one this past June. The most recent tip alleges some Disney employees reclassified guest revenue from high-sales-tax items such as hotel rooms to lower-taxed items such as food and beverages with the purpose of significantly reducing sales tax liabilities in Florida, California and Hawaii. MarketWatch has reviewed the three filings and supporting documentation that was sent to the SEC.
    >Kuba’s filing alleges that flaws in the accounting software made the manipulation difficult to trace, though the consequences could be significant. In just one financial year, 2008-09, Disney’s annual revenue could have been overstated by as much as $6 billion, Kuba’s whistleblower filing alleges. The parks-and-resorts business segment reported total revenue of $10.6 billion in 2009, according to its annual report filed with the SEC.

    When TD comments as M Krauthammar he tries to camouflage himself by not including the misspellings and malapropisms he inserts when he is posing as Tiny Duck. Personally, I think the goofs he inserts into his Tiny Duck comments add a touch of comedy as long as he doesn’t overdo them. The M Krauthammar posts are too deadpan to have the same entertainment value. But either way I appreciate the work he does trying to lighten the fatalistic mood it is all to easy to fall into when discussing the murder of White Western civilization.

    In the case of Tiny Duck he has to be a parody because he uses a self-insulting handle. Tiny Duck as in, Tiny Dick. Not even the most moronic Leftist is going to use a derogatory handle like Blithering Idiot or whatever. Also he doesn’t respond and debate anyone, he just drops his bon mots and moves on. Real Leftists in any event rarely leave their echo-chambers and visit non Leftist sites. They don’t want to be contaminated, or caught by their co-religionists reading forbidden material. They also might think they would simply be blocked by the administrator as happens more frequently on Cult-Marx sites.
    I have been trying to coach TD into making the satire sharper by keeping the comments short and pithy, not overdoing the errors, and not changing the details of his character like when he used to switch between being a woman of color to bring a White schoolteacher etc. I’m not sure all the lessons have taken.

    No, wait, I didn’t say any of that. I acknowledged American 1st Amendment traditions (actually more than traditions – actually Constitutional requirements) and I wondered how we should deal with the fact that the internet seems to have supercharged certain nutjobs. The bigger problem is not so much right wing anti-Semitic Christian nutjobs (the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter notwithstanding) but right wing Islamic nutjobs (who are, by coincidence, also anti-Semitic) – thousands of young Muslims (and Christian converts to Islam) have been enticed to do jihad by this internet stuff. It’s a real problem, maybe even more so than guns themselves (Americans always had guns but we didn’t always have mass shooters) and no one (including me) knows how to fix it without throwing the baby out with the bath water, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a problem.

    Totally irrelevant.

    Life is full of danger. The mortality rate for each person stands at 100%, AFAICT. If Jews or any other group or individuals are afraid of being physically attacked, they should arm up and be capable fighters.

  76. Jack D says:

    The Dayton (Left wing) shooter killed 9 people with 41 shots in 30 seconds before the police shot him, so I don’t think being armed is the complete answer. You might get the time to kill the shooter down to less than 30 seconds but you might also have a shooter with better aim and who is able to position himself in a location that he can defend for more than 30 seconds. Whitman, the Texas tower killer, lasted 96 minutes.

    BTW, most synagogues nowadays, at least in wealthy suburbs, have both uniformed and plain clothes security so that Jews have taken your advice. It’s true that in the long run we are all dead but I’d prefer that it be from natural causes and not a .223 round.

    — Mephistopheles Muse (@November_Amber) August 20, 2019

    I would suggest that a better idea would be for the boys to simply be taught, primarily by their parents, that (a) such behavior is not acceptable in public, even if for no other reason than that it is grossly rude, impolite, anti-social and insensitive; and (b) that genocide– whether of Jews, Armenians, Kulaks, Cambodians, or anyone else– is never a laughing matter.

    Send the kids to a Holocaust museum? Might they then not begin to question why there are so many such shrines dedicated to this one particular genocide yet so few, if any such shrines dedicated to other genocides and mass atrocities? Might the lads not even wonder why what was a generic word, holocaust, has been co-opted into a proper noun to refer to this one particular genocide? Why should the Nazi genocide of Jews warrant such special treatment anymore than the mass murders and other horrors of Communism, to take what is perhaps the most salient example, should? (To say nothing of how the Nazi genocide has been exploited by Zionists and various racketeers.)

    I would contend that all of what I have cited above, along with the incessant scolding and guilt-tripping of White gentiles that too many Jews promote or at least support, actually does more to exacerbate anti-Jewish sentiment than to lessen it. To such Jews I say, as a Jew myself, enough already! This is no way to repay the exceptional kindness that a predominately White, predominately Christian United States of America has shown us!

    The Carousel of Progress ( It’s anything but newish – I saw the original at the ’64 World’s Fair) is not really an “ride”. It’s a rotating theater. You sit and the whole theater revolves (slowly) to reveal various scenes from the early days of electricity (the original sponsor was General Electric) to today. The actors are animatronic robots.

    Comedy is a time-honored response to tragedy.

    I was rather surprised when a woman I know who is a daughter of survivors of the Nazi genocide told me that the Mel Brooks film The Producers was a favorite not just of her’s but of her mother’s as well.

    I recall reading an article several years ago in which a conversation as follows was recounted between Mel Brooks and a young grandson of his who had just watched the acclaimed work of parody in-question. Paraphrasing from memory:

    Child: I’m confused, was Hitler supposed to be a good guy or a bad guy?

    Brooks: A bad guy. A very bad guy.

    Child: Then why did he make me laugh?

    Brooks: Hitler didn’t make you laugh. I made you laugh.

    It may be germane here to point-out that there is something obvious that my acquaintance, her mother, Brooks, and his grandson all had in common with each other. Just how funny would you have found the boys’ antics had they involved an event which had claimed the lives of ancestors or loved ones of yours? Can I be blamed for wondering?
