Melrose is in Massachusetts.

Mexican ladies famously tend to see Jesus or the Virgin Mary in the mold growing on an old tortilla. But, that’s at least visualizing something Good in the world?

What is it when large numbers of the public are constantly imagining manifestations of Evil in the world? It’s reminiscent of Stalinist paranoia about wreckers.

  3. If you can tolerate the taxes and the standard issue Northeastern winters (which are not really that bad), Massachusetts is a wonderful place. There is still enough White working class spunk to push back at much of the bullshit.

    It is amazing how many beautiful towns there are in Massachusetts.

    America has become a sick joke. I mean if that’s the major…
    These people who are offended by completely harmless signs are either insane or taking the piss. It is depressing to live in a world like this. Evil is good, good is evil. We might really be living in the end times.

    New updated list of racist expressions to avoid in 2020:
    “All lives matter”
    “It’s OK to be white”
    “Islam is right about women”
    “Good morning”

  6. Just one sign of many, so to speak, that we’re a nation, a culture, a people, that has seriously lost its way.

    Melrose is a more middle-working class suburb roughly ten miles north of Boston, not a place that attracts SJW’s or hipsters. I have no idea what the demographics are like these days.

    My analysis of New Englanders is that they are so far beyond tight we should force feed them coal so that they could shit out everybody some diamonds. However,

  11. Whatta shitshow in Melrose. Academic “social justice” voodoo jargon has pervaded all levels of American society. Here’s a recent brouhaha about police funding: In June Democrat mayor Brodeur tried to pull a last-minute switcheroo on funding for new guns for the police, instead trying to divert the money to “implicit bias training.”

    Council Calls On Mayor To Apologize For ‘Political Grandstanding’

    https://patch.com/massachusetts/melrose/council-calls-mayor-apologize-political-grandstanding

    “What filled me most with despair was the tone that was set with [Thursday’s] meeting,” Bonnie Clapp said. Former City Councilor Manisha Bewtra said the language was racially coded, sexist and exclusionary.

    Councilor Shawn MacMaster was singled out for how he defended the police in Thursday’s discussion. He apologized Monday.

    “We are white men in a privileged society,” he said. “I regret the impact of [my] words, of how questions were asked and interpreted.”

    Never apologize, and never accept the left’s frame, dipshit.

    MacMaster said the topic blindsided the council, saying what “we have witnessed over the past few days in this city is a failure of leadership” and accusing Brodeur of purposefully causing division in a political stunt to satisfy part of the community.

    Councilor Maya Jamaleddine, who along with Migliorelli and City Council President Jen Grigoraitis, voted against appropriating the free cash Thursday, said the council had failed its residents and used MacMaster’s realization that his words may have hurt people of color as an example of why implicit bias training is so important.

    Appeasement doesn’t work.

  12. My guess is that the good mayor realized that the sign text fails to display proper subject-verb agreement. I’m going to stick with this theory until and unless he signals otherwise.

    For the last G-d damn time, “Black Lives Matter” is NOT a statement. It is a slogan, a brand name, and a political rallying cry. To counter it with “all lives matter” is sort of like trying to persuade someone that Mayor McCheese is not “really” the rightful mayor of McDonaldtown.

    Wait, when did “good morning” become problematic? Is it because it assumes the performative object-relationship of BIPOCLGBTQ+ folkx in white rhetorical trope and fails to acknowledge that their lived experience is one of daily trauma no matter at which point in its rotation our white dominated planet is currently, and that many nocturnal bodies do not find mornings to be good in the dominant framing of respectability circadianess values derived from bourgeois whiteness and that they do not consent to the asserting of light having supremacy over dark?

    “Black Lives Matter” is the name of a Marxist organization bent on overthrowing America.

    What you don’t seem to understand is that the organization was purposely named to stifle dissent using accusations of racism.

    Disagreement with the principles of “Black Lives Matter” is countered with the insidious declaration that one does not care about black lives.

    Hence, the only proper response is All Lives Matter which is not only the founding American principle (despite its initial misapplication), but uses the accuser’s own tactic to point out their idiotic hypocrisy.

    Hope that McHelps.

    And that is so because Cultural Marxism is focused on race and sex, not economics.

    In Cultural Marxism, white equals BAD. That means that saying All Lives Matter is – because it includes whites – saying that Bad is somehow positive, or at least to be tolerated. And that contradicts Cultural Marxism, which is Pure Truth.

    Point taken. You may well be correct.

    However, I would add the fairly obvious fact that the end goal has been made abundantly clear- New Green Deal and Social Redistribution through Modern Monetary Theory.

    Therefore, I would contend that this movement is indeed economic at its core and is using the transparent tactic of “anti-racism” to further its goal.

    I don’t think the ADL knows about it yet, but a “Good morning” with no punctuation really is counterculture code talk.

    “Good morning I hate women” is a standard incel-board shitpost, because some forgotten sad-sack who’s since committed suicide used to welcome himself to the internet every morning by posting that sentence on some lost part of Reddit. It caught on, first as “meme” then as tribute and now as “meme.” Any news story (that still allows comment) or post on social media that demonstrates how awful women are (or at least one woman is) is answered with a Good morning and everyone who’s supposed to understand understands.

    VT Digger is a Vermont news site that has been steadily ratcheting down on its comment section because the commenters are nine to one against the site’s typical editorial angle. Lately they’ve taken away the ability to up or down vote comments, and comments are only allowed for the first 24 hours an article is up. If an article gets a lot of negative comments, it falls off the bottom of the screen.

    Facebook recently started to fund the site.

    There’s nothing about VT Digger that would attract alt right readers. Indeed, given the overall politics of the state and the commenters’ education level, you’d expect them to be the wokest of woke. But they are anything but.

    I can’t help but wonder how much of the apparent woke consensus is just a media campaign. The rioters are made to believe they are totally conforming when in the wokest state in the Union, they have almost no grass roots support.

    Here’s an article about a candidate for governor wanting to paint “Justice for All” on a Montpelier street to go along with the “Black Lives Matter” message already there. Out of ten comments, nine support the move. If votes were still allowed, those nine would have overwhelming support.

    Given the course of events, I don’t believe votes will even be counted this November. Five minutes after the polls close, Dems will be awarded every office and Trump will be cuffed.

    Hopelessly passing your time in the grassland away
    Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air

    I’ve looked over Jordan, and I have seen
    Things are not what they seem

    Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by
    With bright knives he releaseth my soul

    He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
    He converteth me to lamb cutlets
    For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger
    When cometh the day we lowly ones

    Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
    Master the art of karate
    Lo, we shall rise up
    And then we’ll make the bugger’s eyes water

    Bleating and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers
    March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream

    20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight!
    22 Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine
    And valiant men in mixing strong drink,
    23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
    And take away the [p]rights of the ones who are in the right!

    See how you like this Pastor:
    https://johnweaverlibrary.famguardian.org/
    and this sermon:
    https://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=3270617585

    Every law has a god as its source. In America we have made “We The People” our god. Those who demand you wear a mask and stay home and stay apart are the enforcers of this god’s law. Just like Baal had his enforcers.

    Read the book of Habakkuk as see if America is not seen in the Chaldeans.
    Habakkuk ch 1
    vs6 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs.
    vs7 They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.

    Read The Revelation and see what is coming and if this is not just another step.

    Look at the past sermons of Pastor John Weaver.
    johnweaverlibrary.famguardian.org/

    He tells it like it is, and has for a long time.

    In the Bible there are 2 verses:
    Psalm 118
    8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in humans.
    9 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in princes.

    America has trusted in man for so long we have forgotten how to think.
    Most still watch the TV news and read the paper.

    Easy to spot these people too. Just let them talk. Hard to miss them!

    Hint: they are wearing a mask.

    The CDC, WHO, and major players in this, Flocci and Gates, have a proven track record of death and destruction, yet they are driving the bus here…and the mass of the people, businesses, factories, and, worst of all, the Churches, are following right along fighting for a seat.

    But, most importantly, are you a Christian? If so, rest easy. We are told over 300 times to “fear not”. We are told to be gentile as the dove, but wise as the serpent.

    If not, better decide if you will follow Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior.

    “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

    The flu and riots are the distraction. Do not forget that.

    As Alice Walker has correctly if uneuphoniously written:

    To Study The Talmud

    ©2017 by Alice Walker

    The first time I was accused

    Of appearing to be anti-Semitic

    The shock did not wear off
    For days.
    The man who charged me
    Was a friend.
    A Jewish Soul
    Who I thought understood
    Or could learn to understand
    Almost anything.

    He could not understand
    However
    Why I thought Israel should give back
    The land it took
    From a poorly defended
    People in a war that lasted
    Six days. I cringed
    About our small house
    In Mississippi (where black people
    Often assumed he was a racist)
    Deeply offended by his attempt
    To insult my character
    And spoke to him
    Earnestly of “dignity” “justice”
    “honor” and “peace.”

    [MORE]

    Sometimes, later in life,
    You do laugh at yourself.
    You understand, finally,
    That you’ve understood
    Nothing. Nothing at all.
    That in this case, for instance,
    That of the famed Six Day War,
    It was all a show,
    A true “Theatre” war;
    The battlefield a stage,
    Though bombs and bullets were real.
    Only the people who lost the battle
    Got a close-up
    Of the set.
    And the set-up.

    Later I would march
    Or be arrested
    Protesting this war and that
    And marvel how it never mattered.
    On days we marched in our tens of thousands
    The people we hoped to influence
    Were taking a holiday. Bush was
    good at this. He let the media
    Spread the word he was chillin’ on his
    12,000 or is it 20,000
    Acre ranch.
    Bill and Barack made themselves
    Scarce.

    When I was in Palestine
    As an elder
    Doing my job
    Of keeping tabs
    On Earth’s children
    I remembered my concern
    And how my friend
    Had brushed it off.

    “Israel needs that land to protect itself.”
    He said. As though this should be
    Self- evident. It wasn’t then;
    It isn’t now.

    The land taken
    Has never been returned.
    In fact, more stolen land
    Has followed the first assaults
    And thefts.
    Palestinian children, after years
    Of throwing stones
    At grown up assassins
    In helmets and armored tanks
    Are killing themselves
    These days
    To save their murderers
    The trouble.

    Unlike most Americans
    I have witnessed Palestine
    Under Israeli rule. It is demonic
    To the core. But where to look
    For the inspiration
    For so much evil? Where
    To find the teachings that influence
    And sanction such limitless cruel behavior?

    Where to find that part
    Of the puzzle that is missing?
    We’ve intuited there must be one.
    And we were right.

    *

    We must go back
    As grown ups, now,
    Not as the gullible children we once were,
    And study our programming,
    From the beginning.
    All of it: The Christian, the Jewish,
    The Muslim; even the Buddhist. All of it, without exception,
    At the root.

    For the study of Israel, of Gaza, of Palestine,
    Of the bombed out cities of the Middle East,
    Of the creeping Palestination
    Of our police, streets, and prisons
    In America,
    Of war in general,
    It is our duty, I believe, to study The Talmud.
    It is within this book that,
    I believe, we will find answers
    To some of the questions
    That most perplex us.

    Where to start?

    You will find some information,
    Slanted, unfortunately,
    By Googling. For a more in depth study
    I recommend starting with YouTube. Simply follow the trail of “The
    Talmud” as its poison belatedly winds its way
    Into our collective consciousness.

    Some of what you find will sound
    Too crazy to be true. Unfortunately those bits are likely
    To be true. Some of the more evasive studies
    Will exhibit unbelievable attempts
    At sugar coating extremely disagreeable pills.
    But hang in there, checking
    And double checking, listening to everybody,
    Even the teachers with the twisted pasts
    That scare you the most,
    And the taped rants of outraged citizens that sound
    Like madcap characters on Car Talk
    Except they are not laughing
    But are righteously outraged.

    Study hard, with an open
    If deeply offended mind,
    Until you can sift the false
    From the true.

    Is Jesus boiling eternally in hot excrement,
    For his “crime” of throwing the bankers
    Out of the Temple? For loving, standing with,
    And defending
    The poor? Was his mother, Mary,
    A whore?

    Are Goyim (us) meant to be slaves of Jews, and not only
    That, but to enjoy it?
    Are three year old (and a day) girls eligible for marriage and intercourse?
    Are young boys fair game for rape?
    Must even the best of the Goyim (us, again) be killed?
    Pause a moment and think what this could mean
    Or already has meant
    In our own lifetime.

    You may find that as the cattle
    We have begun to feel we are
    We have an ancient history of oppression
    Of which most of us have not been even vaguely
    Aware. You will find that we, Goyim, sub-humans, animals
    -The Palestinians of Gaza
    The most obvious representatives of us
    At the present time – are a cruel example of what may be done
    With impunity, and without conscience,
    By a Chosen people,
    To the vast majority of the people
    On the planet
    Who were not Chosen.
    Not chosen to receive the same dubious
    “Blessing” of
    Supremacy over the Earth,
    Humans, and Beasts of this realm. As is
    Stated plainly in the first chapter
    Of the Bible we all read.
    The Unchosen who, until now,
    Were too scared of being
    Called names
    To demand to know why.

    It is a “Blessing” Jesus did not want.
    One that, risking crucifixion, he refused.
    One reason he is loved
    By those who recognize a good
    And righteous person
    When they encounter one.
    Seen in this light he wasn’t even
    A spiritual progressive, but a committed
    Revolutionary: a Che Guevara
    Of the ancient past.

    A past as scary, if not scarier, than
    Our own time: A past that,
    Unfortunately, is not even past (quoting
    Faulkner).

    We discover this
    To our enlightened grief
    As we study
    The Talmud,
    Our own ignorance,
    And the devastating impact of both
    On our abandoned world.

    As Alice Walker has correctly if uneuphoniously written:

    To Study The Talmud

    ©2017 by Alice Walker

    The first time I was accused

    Of appearing to be anti-Semitic

    The shock did not wear off
    For days.
    The man who charged me
    Was a friend.
    A Jewish Soul
    Who I thought understood
    Or could learn to understand
    Almost anything.

    [MORE]

    He could not understand
    However
    Why I thought Israel should give back
    The land it took
    From a poorly defended
    People in a war that lasted
    Six days. I cringed
    About our small house
    In Mississippi (where black people
    Often assumed he was a racist)
    Deeply offended by his attempt
    To insult my character
    And spoke to him
    Earnestly of “dignity” “justice”
    “honor” and “peace.”

    Sometimes, later in life,
    You do laugh at yourself.
    You understand, finally,
    That you’ve understood
    Nothing. Nothing at all.
    That in this case, for instance,
    That of the famed Six Day War,
    It was all a show,
    A true “Theatre” war;
    The battlefield a stage,
    Though bombs and bullets were real.
    Only the people who lost the battle
    Got a close-up
    Of the set.
    And the set-up.

    Later I would march
    Or be arrested
    Protesting this war and that
    And marvel how it never mattered.
    On days we marched in our tens of thousands
    The people we hoped to influence
    Were taking a holiday. Bush was
    good at this. He let the media
    Spread the word he was chillin’ on his
    12,000 or is it 20,000
    Acre ranch.
    Bill and Barack made themselves
    Scarce.

    When I was in Palestine
    As an elder
    Doing my job
    Of keeping tabs
    On Earth’s children
    I remembered my concern
    And how my friend
    Had brushed it off.

    “Israel needs that land to protect itself.”
    He said. As though this should be
    Self- evident. It wasn’t then;
    It isn’t now.

    The land taken
    Has never been returned.
    In fact, more stolen land
    Has followed the first assaults
    And thefts.
    Palestinian children, after years
    Of throwing stones
    At grown up assassins
    In helmets and armored tanks
    Are killing themselves
    These days
    To save their murderers
    The trouble.

    Unlike most Americans
    I have witnessed Palestine
    Under Israeli rule. It is demonic
    To the core. But where to look
    For the inspiration
    For so much evil? Where
    To find the teachings that influence
    And sanction such limitless cruel behavior?

    Where to find that part
    Of the puzzle that is missing?
    We’ve intuited there must be one.
    And we were right.

    We must go back
    As grown ups, now,

    You’re right that “black lives matter” is a slogan.

    “All lives matter” would be a weaksauce and uncreative retort, EXCEPT, that the woke have decided it’s hate speech!

    That makes it powerful by highlighting how far gone they are.

    Every time they eyerollingly wokesplain how race neutrality is really racism and how blacks are really super special and more important than everyone else its a tug at the frail ties of their coalition of the fringes.

  58. Traditionally, totalitarian governments are beset with paranoia that sometimes explodes into violence against enemy groups. Today the prime enemy group is white gentiles. Maybe we should be bracing.

  59. Anon[253] • Disclaimer says:
    @Anon

    Correct. Black lives matter because justice is for all people, or is not justice.

    But justice for all should be meted out on a case by case basis. To impose collective guilt on a group of persons is the very definition of injustice.

    Allusions to “Systemic racism“ is a way of breaking social cohesion. But chaos and injustice benefits no decent person, least of all the poor or disadvantaged.

  60. @Anonymous

    whiteness is not humxness.
    infact, white skin is sub-humxn.

    What is humxness?

    melanin enables black skin to capture light and hold it in it’s memory mode which reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge.

    So, it was never really about magic dirt, but blackness converting light into knowledge.(?)

    White ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival…

    I agree with SunBakedSuburb.

    Black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.

    … we are a threat to the genetic anhilation of white ppl.

    Thanks for the warning.

    Housing segregation left Black Americans more vulnerable to Covid-19

    Of course, the inability to follow safety commendations, street protests, and short term thinkning are too 2020. Lets go back to the 1940’s to find someone to blame.

  63. I have just been made aware that the following traffic sign is being displayed on Main Street. I have ordered that it be taken down immediately and am taking steps to find out how this happened. I apologize to the residents of Melrose.

    What the hell is wrong with guys like this?

    How can any “biological male” chose to come off like a whiny church lady/hall monitor. Too much drinking and eating from plastic? Too much soy?

    How does he even look at himself in the mirror? And by what mental gymnastics does Mrs. Paul Brodeur allow this thing to put his penis insider her? One would think any mentally healthy woman would recoil in horror from the thought of entry by such an unmanly worm.

    THE Alice Walker. Can’t get out of high school without reading it, hearing it and having to praise it.

    Such “poetry” has always reminded me of some dorky kid in the back of the classroom cutting farts at random intervals for an entire class period. It’s not just annoying and insulting, it’s not just lousy and stinky, it’s that when you think it’s done….braaaaap….out comes another stanza.

    Is it done? Done yet? Finally? Braaaaaaap….phew, guess not. Is it done? Done now?

    Braaaaap….PHEW! that was a nasty one.

  65. @Anon

    Maybe always refer to it as “the leftist organization BLM” I would say that also stipulating that among other things, black lives matter in conjunction with usage of “The leftist organization BLM” could differentiate between concept and radical group. It’s no accident that the push to capitalize “black” makes this differentiation more difficult now because both usages require “Black” under this rubric. Clever, subversive people with high verbal ability thought this through. Whoever they are.

    Others have made the casr that it’s simpler to say “white lives don’t matter” instead. Heightening the contradictions can work, but only if the audience isn’t groveling, brainwashed, and ignorant of history.

    If you can tolerate the taxes and the standard issue Northeastern winters (which are not really that bad), Massachusetts is a wonderful place. There is still enough White working class spunk to push back at much of the bullshit.

    It is amazing how many beautiful towns there are in Massachusetts.

    Agreed … Massachusetts conservatives have long adapted to a permanent hostile political environment, including not just the local government officials and world-expert academics, but friends, neighbors, coworkers, customers, suppliers … and relatives. It’s almost as if Masscons living on a (political) frontier has made them more robust.

    Accepting his argument about inherent white defectiveness as true, this message is self-contradictory. Why have the inferior whites been able to dominate, subjugate, and humiliate the superior blacks for all of human history (in their telling)?

    “Black people simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.” So why don’t they have the power to?
