Life in Third World Amerika

I am really tired of the ongoing scamdemic and tired of writing about it. The mainstream media keep repeating over and over the number of COVID deaths and “new cases” every day and in every newscast.

70% of Americans are “very” or “somewhat” worried about COVID infection, while only 28% “not very” or “not at all” worried about COVID infection, according to FiveThirtyEight.

So 70% of the people rely on mainstream “news” media for their “information,” (i.e. propaganda and fear-mongering) from the government rulers and bureaucrats.

If only the mainstream media would continuously reiterate the facts that are known so far, especially that most people who have the virus might have mild symptoms but certainly don’t die, and that at least half of the people with the virus have no symptoms at all, and that most asymptomatic “carriers” are not infectious.

And if only the mainstream media would continuously reiterate the facts, as L. Reichard White has summarized in his article on the Narrative Pandemic, then most people would see that their “news” outlets are just propagandists, and they would see what a scamdemic this has been. That 70% of those who are worried about it would be not worried.

In his article, White reminds us of how the CDC guidelines have encouraged doctors and hospitals and coroners to list people as “COVID deaths” even though they died of other causes but happened to have tested positive for coronavirus. And that many people were listed as a COVID death who were “presumed” or “likely” to have been COVID deaths even though they were never tested. And that hospitals have been unnecessarily putting people on deadly ventilators and incorrectly listing people as COVID deaths because of the financial incentive given to them by gubmint. And how governors forced nursing homes to take in COVID patients to then infect others there.

So it is as though those governors have been intentionally wanting to cause those nursing home deaths. They were already very sick and dying anyway, which is actually the truth with most of those who died in those places.

And we have the mask mandates now, with those masks that cause people oxygen deprivation especially over a more prolonged period of time, as well as breathing in your own exhaled gases and toxins that your lungs thought they had already gotten rid of. Over time, the more oxygen deprivation people have, the more we will see people with more of a cognitive decline, in my view. I am sure we will see more people diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s and at an earlier age (that is, if the vaccines aren’t causing those things already).

Maybe the rulers and bureaucrats want to make people sick and that’s the real reason they are imposing mask mandates, fines, and people throwing hot coffee on non-masked “offenders.” After all, many of the people who are attracted to positions of power over others, like Presidents, governors, etc. are psychopaths. Many of them are brainwashed ideologues who want to see their agendas imposed on others.

For example, the Population Control wackos, the eugenicists, the Climate fanatics. They really believe that there are too many people on Earth, and several hundred million of them can go. Yes, there are wackos who really believe those things.

Maybe that is why some of the governors and mayors are letting BLM and antifa rioters, looters, arsonists, and assaulters continue with their rioting, looting, assaulting and violence in the cities. And now spreading out into the suburbs. “Capitalism built up the West and we need to take it all down and destroy civilized society,” is their philosophy, apparently.

Another reason for the COVID fear-mongering by government commissars and media propagandists is to scare people into not wanting to go to the polls to vote in primaries and in November. With mail-in voting or absentee ballots mistakes are easily made, and it is much easier for the activists and ideologues to cheat. For example, poll workers opening up a mail-in ballot and seeing a box checked for their candidates’ opponent, what they do is check the other box as well, and well looky here there are two boxes checked and therefore we have to throw out this ballot. Lather, rinse, repeat. That is what I heard someone say on the radio. And it’s not unbelievable given how zealous ideologues are now, and how many more people have lost any sense of integrity or honesty in Third-World Amerika.

And there is another reason behind the push for mail-in voting. With the cancel culture and the intolerance for people with a non-left point of view, I can see why Trump supporters are not telling others or pollsters they plan to vote for Trump. Who in his right mind would tell people you’re voting for Trump? You want to get beat up by antifa communists? So, with the COVID fear mongering and terrorizing the sheeple to not go to the polls in person, it is a way to intimidate Trump supporters to not even vote by mail. “Hmm, do I want those poll workers who open up the ballots in the mail to see that I voted for Trump? And see my name and address?” and so on.

We might have to get foreign election observers such as from Venezuela or Russia to observe the Town Hall or City poll workers opening up the mail-in ballots to make sure there isn’t any hanky-panky going on, or on Election Day itself on November 3rd, in Third World Amerika.

And no, I’m not voting for Trump, or voting in any way. I haven’t voted since the early ’90s. Even the “Libertarian” Party is not to be taken seriously, with their picking Jo Jorgensen, who is against the mask mandates “unless we’re talking about a government building…” Huh?

The Leftist Mob Goes After Ellen

I am not really that familiar with Ellen DeGeneres. I stopped watching television during the mid-’90s, and I didn’t even watch her sitcom that she seemed to copy from Seinfeld at that time. But I do recall seeing her stand-up routine on TV during those years, and thought she was very funny.

And apparently she’s had a TV talk show for the past 17 years, and now that show’s fate is in question. Apparently, starting in April people from behind the scenes from her TV show are coming out of the wordwork to accuse Ellen of presiding over a work environment of “racism, fear, and intimidation.”

Writes the New Yorker:

Former employees claimed that they were fired for going on medical leave or for taking bereavement days to attend a funeral. A Black woman said that a producer had told her and a Black co-worker, “Oh, wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused.”

And then we hear allegations by former employees of sexual misconduct and groping by producers there.

Hmmm. I’ll bet such behavior goes on a lot in show business. So I believe that these kinds of complaints could be thrown toward ANY show-biz performer on TV or in the movies. So why Ellen?

My theory is the complaints going on now are a coordinated effort to “punish” Ellen for her defense last year of Kevin Hart’s (who I hadn’t even heard of until this controversy) “homophobic” tweets that were dug up by “investigative” “journalists” who really care about digging up the truth about people when it really matters. Hart was scheduled to host the Oscars but was ousted following what was apparently seen as an insincere apology for those “homophobic” tweets.

The Twitter Mob also didn’t like Ellen’s remark that self-quarantine during the scamdemic was “like being in jail.” So, she told the truth about house arrest, but the True Believers in the COVID scam (which are mainly left-leaning sheeple and Democrats) couldn’t have that truth-telling.

So, as we are seeing with the liberal, openly lesbian Ellen DeGeneres (not exactly a right-winger), the leftist “social justice” mob will go after ANYONE who strays. Making remarks toward “special,” extra-protected groups like LGBT is so forbidden, such a NO-NO, that even Ellen crossed the line in her defending Hart. And she strayed slightly from the required obedience to the COVID narrative. Now she vill be punished!

Let the Swamp Creatures Destroy Themselves, We Can Dismiss D.C. Forever

In a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week in Washington, lawbreakers inquisitioned AG William Barr, especially the Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (Chinese phone books and all). The Democrat lawbreakers questioned Barr relentlessly, and would immediately interrupt him as he began his answers.

Those snotty little brats are really just apparatchiks and loyalists to “The Party” and to power, certainly not to the concepts of “question and answer,” honest discussion of the issues and open debate, and transparency in government.

And they certainly are not friends of freedom of speech, but the opposite of that: censorship. They so much do not want Barr to get his side of the story out there that they would prefer only their own views be heard, and no one else’s.

However, I couldn’t care less that they gave poor old William Barr a hard time, harassing him and humiliating him, because Barr is just another Swamp creature and police statist, drug warrior, national security state apparatchik. So to hell with him as far as I’m concerned.

And the same thing two years ago with Brett Kavanaugh, Barr’s fellow Swamp creature, rubber-stamper of the police state and the fascist drug war. With Kavanaugh I could hardly have cared less that the Democrat Politburo and “social justice” fabricators made stuff up and launched false accusations toward him.

Barr is no better. Besides his anti-immigration policies, Barr was a CIA goon for 4 years, and imposed policies of going into other countries to apprehend suspects in fascist drug laws that shouldn’t exist. Barr and his daughter the DOJ’s drug commissar Mary Daly believe that drug usage, production and sales are criminal matters. People buying, selling, possessing or using certain drugs prohibited by the Rulers are criminals to them. (Unfortunately a lot of Amerikan fascists agree with them.)

Additionally, the Swamp creature police statist William Barr ia against reforming the criminal justice (sic) sentencing system. He wrote: “Our system of justice is not broken. Mandatory minimums and proactive law enforcement measures have caused a dramatic reduction in crime over the past 25 years, an achievement we cannot afford to give back.”

“Proactive law enforcement measures” means “Pre-Crime,” that is, when government bureaucrats attempt to predict that someone might commit some crime at some point. Perhaps we should call him Mr. Totalitarian?

In my view, all these people in Washington are loathsome Swamp creatures. They are not fans of property rights, the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution they were all sworn to protect and defend.

And regarding William Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham’s alleged “investigation” of CIA-FBI-DOJ crusade to get Donald Trump including fake dossiers and illegal FISA spying abuses, I am not holding my breath. In the end, Swamp creatures stick up for each other, and sweep each other’s crimes under the rug. They then go on to attend the same cocktail parties, yacht cruises and bubble baths in Washington.

And do you think the current FBI director Chris Wray is going to help at all in the alleged “investigation”? After Way pushed to withhold exculpatory evidence in the Mike Flynn case?

Anyway, as I’ve been saying for years, the best solution to “draining the Swamp” is decentralization. Dissolve the U.S. government completely. I very much recommend Lew Rockwell’s 30 Day Plan as the first and necessary step. And Murray Rothbard offered some tips on how and how not to desocialize.

We can start with 50 independent states (or “nation-states” if you prefer). This way the people have the power to “vote with their feet,” a power which sadly we do not have now. And when that is achieved the states can further decentralize themselves. No more government central planning, no more dysfunctional dependence on central planners for security.

Social Media Censorship: Who Are the Censors?

In a separate House Committee hearing in Washington, lawbreakers questioned Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg. The Congressman with the squeaky teenage boy-sounding voice, Jim Jordan, brought up many examples of Fakebook and Twitter censoring conservatives, libertarians, vaccine skeptics and hydroxychloroquine-advocating doctors, and examples of Big Tech “de-platforming” social media users.

Besides their regular censoring and banning and shadow-banning, the Big Tech companies are censoring by way of “de-platforming” and getting financial institutions, payment services, credit card companies, etc. to cancel users’ accounts, depriving them of the monetary benefits of their social media platforms.

The Big Tech “social justice” warriors are getting serious in their promoting wacko myths and superstitions, anti-diversity of thought and their intolerance of alternative viewpoints that do not repeat the Establishment’s official narrative or do not follow Big Tech’s allegiance to Big Pharma’s poison profits.

But who exactly are these people who are making the decisions on censoring or not censoring others, and deciding what information is legitimate and what isn’t?

Mainly, they are millennials, brainwashed by 12 to 16 years of government school indoctrination and college “social justice” crusades, of wacky loony-tunes propaganda and gibberish that means nothing in the real world.

As I wrote here and as described in this Federalist article, the workers at Google, for example, blacklist and shun other employees who have expressed any views (or any slight indications of such views, like “microaggressions”) which go against their brainwashed “social justice” orthodoxy mantras and slogans. They give “peer bonuses” to those other workers who enforce the rigid, intolerant conformity.

If you remember, former Google employee James Damore, who claimed that Google discriminates against white males and conservatives, had tried to sue Google for his firing. According to the lawsuit, Damore described Google as having “internal mailing lists catering to employees with alternative lifestyles, including furries, polygamy, transgenderism, and plurality, for the purpose of discussing sexual topics. The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Google’s internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy…”

And, get this: “For instance, an employee who sexually identifies as ‘a yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin’ and ‘an expansive ornate building’ presented a talk entitled ‘Living as a Plural Being’ at an internal company event.”

As I wrote in my other post on that, “Loony-tunes much?”

The Damore-Google lawsuit also mentions Google’s internal memo with directions on “How to (Properly) Punch a Nazi,” in which it describes how to properly punch a Nazi, though it isn’t clear whether they give directions on how to determine whether someone actually is a Nazi. Some of the young, brainwashed snowflake nutjobs think it’s fine to just point someone out, such as at a demonstration or counter-demonstration, call him a “Nazi” and then attack him. The government-schooled ignoramuses do not understand due process and presumption of innocence, sadly.

And also according to the Federalist article, Google employees who do not conform to the brainwashed “social justice” orthodoxy have a “psychotic break from reality.” (I think it’s the other way around, ya think?)

And at Facebook, according to CNBC, employees there had complained about a “cult-like” atmosphere within the Facebook culture. It supposedly is a culture of enforced feigned love for the Facebook leadership while at the same time employees are discouraged from expressing any dissenting thoughts from the leadership’s top-down edicts. it seemed to be all about obeying the commands from the top and shut up.

So we have the irrational kookiness with these “social justice”-obsessed Big Tech companies and their authoritarian, intolerant nature of how things are run in these places. And these are the ones who will determine what is “truth” or what are “facts” to be allowed and what is “fake news” or “harmful” and should be censored, removed or de-platformed. Is there a way to boycott and “de-platform” Google, Fakebook, Twitter and the rest of those schnooks?

Are You a True Believer in the COVID and BLM Narratives?

If you really believe the COVID-1984 propaganda from mainstream news media, then you really ought to turn it off. Social media, radio, especially TV. Please turn off the TV.

The latest hysteria policy imposed by a fascist governor is Marxachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker now ordering incoming travelers to have to fill out an intrusive form and then quarantine themselves for two weeks! You vill obey orders, or pay $500 fine each day you violate orders!

People need to tell this fascist knucklehead, “F you, you moron!” These fascists need to be taken to court. Why aren’t people suing these idiots?!

Enough of the hysteria and panic.

So, you already heard this a million times. Most people who have the COVID virus will have no symptoms or just mild, “flu-like” symptoms and they survive. The infection fatality rate of COVID-19 is about .1%, so it’s right there with the seasonal influenza. If you get the virus, you have a 99.9% chance of survival.

For most people it is just like the flu — so it doesn’t matter if we “slow the spread,” or “flatten the curve,” and it doesn’t matter whether people wear those ineffective and possibly harmful masks or do this Twilight Zonish “social distancing” crap!

And local districts are hiring “social distancing” police and mask stasi now? To make sure their neighbors are wearing the mask, or wearing it properly? “F you,” I say. “Get the hell away from me, you Nazi!” And yes, they are Nazis when you get right down to it.

The masks symbolize how the governing class and “social justice” cult are trying to shut everybody else up, those with whom they disagree. For the Rulers and their obedient cultists the masks are your baby pacifier. Shut up, slave, they own you. Don’t talk back. Don’t question their narrative. No dissent!

But I digress. Back to the scamdemic. (And by the way, note how “pandemic” is “panic” with “Dem” in the middle? Heh.)

Anyway, COVID-19 is only a threat to a very small fraction of the population. This whole panic, fascism and shutting down the entire society has only been counter-productive.

So, why all the fear-mongering and propaganda on mainstream news?

COVID is killing mainly elderly people in nursing homes who are already battling very serious illnesses or have serious conditions, like heart disease, kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Or non-elderly people with those very serious illnesses or conditions. But mainly the people dying of COVID-19 are in their 70s, 80s, and 90s.

So COVID is killing the same groups of people that the flu kills each flu season. Tens of thousands of people die of seasonal influenza each flu season in the U.S.

In the U.S., the 2014-2015 flu season killed 51,000 people, the 2012-2013 flu season killed 43,000, and the 2017-2018 flu season killed 61,000, according to the CDC.

Hmm, supposedly the CDC said on April 4 that “24,000-62,000” people have died during the 2019-2020 flu season, but because of COVID-19 the “estimates may partly reflect increases in testing in recent weeks and may be adjusted downward once the season is complete…”

In other words they have been infiltrating the 2019-2020 flu death numbers with the COVID death numbers to deliberately inflate the COVID death numbers.

That’s in addition to the CDC changing its guidelines to include non-COVID deaths such as gunshot deaths, motorcycle deaths and deaths by other causes such as heart attack, in their “COVID deaths” numbers. In other words, the CDC and all their “public health” commissars in the various states are lying about the lethality of COVID.

So, given the relatively equal death rates and seriousness of COVID-19 and seasonal flu, why don’t the news outlets give constant updates on all the flu cases, all the positive flu test results and flu deaths? Why haven’t the governors and mayors been giving daily briefings for the flu each flu season?

It’s a rhetorical question. The answer is because they’re full of sh*t, that’s why.

And these rulers and “public health” bureaucrats have been making things worse by ordering nursing homes to have to take in COVID-infected patients who then spread the disease and kill more elderly people.

And making things even more worse by inciting panic and hysteria and drilling it into people that if they have a cough or sneeze therefore they have COVID and they’re gonna die! and so people rush to the hospital to be killed by the ventilators (I wrote that in an earlier post, but it’s true. Sorry about that.), or otherwise medical incompetence.

More cheating: Officials have been caught omitting negative test results to report 98% positive results when it was really 9.4%, and people who had never been tested are being sent notices that they have tested positive! The FRAUD is happening all over the country!

Our government, federal, state and local officials are lying to us about all this, and the lazy, dumb morons in the news media just repeat over and over and over what the lying bureaucrats tell them!

Jon Rappoport has written this excellent post on the ways of achieving false positives on the COVID test results, including the effects of those damn MASKS!

So, based on the earlier frantic push to contain the virus in Wuhan and the number of deaths there and in Italy, Wall Street got into panic-sell-offs and crashed the markets from the high of 29,000 down to 18,000 in just weeks, and because of one nursing home in Washington state having a problem, our fascist idiot governors ordered businesses shut down and schools closed, thus tanking the economy even more. And for no good reason!

They caused much more harm with those orders, business closures and much higher unemployment, high suicide rates, increasing child abuse and alcoholism and drug abuse, and all for no good reason.

And people are calling the “spikes” in Texas and Florida a “second wave” even though it is their first “wave” because they experienced very low hospitalization and death rates during those initial months of March through May. But the “public health” bureaucrats in those states are still making it up by lying about the numbers of “cases” (positive test results) and lying about the “overrun hospitals” that aren’t.

They are also making people wear ineffective and possibly harmful masks to obstruct their breathing and give them new health problems that will affect their immune systems to make them sick when they otherwise wouldn’t be.

And now we see buffoon Donald Trump wearing the mask and even recommending that people use them for no good reason. So he is now going along with the charade and against his own better judgment, because Trump is his own worst enemy.

And now they have gotten Trump to cancel his Florida RNC convention because of the lies, propaganda and fear-mongering.

Are all these governors and “public health” officials, and their media groupies, lying about COVID-1984 just because they pathologically hate Trump so much they would do ALL this to us and to the country to try to affect the 2020 election? Some people such as Rush Limbaugh are suggesting that.

With mail-in cheating and early voting i.e. early cheating, in addition to the aforementioned, I can’t see Trump still winning. But whether Trump wins or the Democrat, the election will be seen as the most illegitimate election in U.S. history. (Will drooling poll workers and town clerks offices attempt to falsely report higher numbers for Democrat and lower numbers for Trump? I wouldn’t be surprised.) People are droolingly hysterical now, in their hatred of Donald Trump. Because he said, “Drain the Swamp!”

At the same time all this is happening, the “Black Lives Matter” movement marches through the cities, burning down the cities like Soviet tanks and Nazis invading and marauding. Talk about propaganda. “We hate white people, but it is the white people who are the ‘racists’, etc., etc.”

And it has nothing to do with “black lives,” or race, or “social justice” or “equality.” This is a Marxist, anti-freedom, “anti-capitalism” movement that wants to get into power like the Soviets, and they want to enslave and subjugate the rest of the population, not just white people but everybody. Many of them in “Black Lives Matter” are white, by the way, the same kind of “useful idiots” during the Soviet Union.

Don’t be fooled by them. And don’t be brainwashed. Turn off the TV. Don’t listen to the lying news media propagandists and fascist governors and “public health” officials and “infectious disease experts.” Really. Turn off the TV.

“Black Lives Matter”: An Extreme Example of Today’s PC Intolerance

The United State of Amerika is now officially a crazy country, It’s literally crazy.

The political correctness run amok now has gone way beyond just being cringe-worthy or a laughingstock. Now the general population, corporation bigwigs, and especially Big Tech have joined the wackos in academia, Hollywood and the lunatic media in their brainwashing regarding racism and all the other “social justice” craziness.

For starters, Twitter and other Big Tech activists want to change words like “master” to something else, because certain words might refer to something (like “slavery”) that might offend someone or “trigger” some kind of emotional discomfort.

Like the realtors who are now changing “master bedroom” to “primary bedroom,” because someone somewhere might think you’re referring to slavery (I know I would think that a realtor is showing me a house in which that bedroom is reserved for the “master” who has actual slaves! Yes, I’m that dumb!).

Now, the loony-tunes at Twitter and elsewhere are going to change, according to CNET,

  • Whitelist becomes allowlist.
  • Blacklist becomes denylist.
  • Master/slave becomes leader/follower, primary/replica or primary/standby.
  • Grandfathered becomes legacy status.
  • Gendered pronouns (for example “guys”) become folks, people, you all, y’all.
  • Gendered pronouns (for example “he” or “his”) become they or their.
  • Man hours becomes person hours or engineer hours.
  • Sanity check becomes quick check, confidence check or coherence check.
  • Dummy value becomes placeholder value or sample value.

Those last two are obvious, because they might refer to how CRAZY these people are!

And “Black Lives Matter” now, with the protests, the vandalism, the violence, rioting and looting and burning down businesses, etc. What are they protesting? Police brutality? “Systemic racism”? Yep, there has been so much “systemic racism,” especially since all the Jim Crow laws were repealed 56 years ago, and look at all the affirmative action programs at all the college campuses and in the corporate world. All those black people being discriminated against in academia and business. It’s too much.

Because of all the “systemic racism” in USSA, Donald Trump’s tax cuts elicited the largest increase in employment for black Americans in history, giving black people JOBS so they can provide for themselves and their families. Such prosperity for black people was an insult to the outdated and fixated race activists that the extra-crazed statists among them had to take those jobs away from those black Americans! Wall Street sell-offs in February (as soon as the impeachment trial ended) and fascist governors ordering businesses closed. So much for all those new jobs for black people.

So anyway, I understand the anguish people feel when a white cop shoots, kills, assaults or harasses a black person. As I wrote in an earlier post, de-monopolizing community policing away from government control and greatly reducing the number of laws on the books (i.e. ending the war on drugs) would help a great deal toward resolving that issue.

But this stuff with tearing down statues because they refer to slavery, like doing that will really erase history from reality? That’s nutso.

Can’t you just walk by a goddamn statue and ignore it? It’s just a statue, it’s just sitting there, an inanimate object, not hurting anyone. And if someone is so fragile that he feels so upset seeing a statue, then maybe some therapy would be helpful.

And what about Jews? Do Jews feel upset if something refers to the Holocaust? What about the Holocaust memorial museum? Should that be taken down? Because it upsets Jews? It sure upsets me. It’s constantly reminding me that Hitler murdered millions of Jews. I just can’t handle such triggering. And maybe we should ban gas ovens as well? Wait, you’re going in the shower? That’s triggering me. Let’s remove all references to “Hitler” and “Nazi” from the history books, because that’s upsetting.

Nope. I don’t hear any Jews protesting at the Holocaust museums and telling the owners to close them down, and I don’t see Jews picketing Home Depot for selling gas ovens.

I know, some people don’t like my comparison, but I’m merely demonstrating how absurd all the irrational complaining and worrying about statues are.

And then there are the useful idiots getting on their knees and washing other people’s feet — how gross.

Recently, a University of Massachusetts nursing school dean was fired because she wrote in an email, “everyone’s life matters.” Can you believe that? So “Only Black Lives Matter” is what people are supposed to say, not “ALL lives” or “Everyone’s Life,” but “ONLY Black Lives.” And White Lives? We know the answer to that.

I refuse to say “Black Lives Matter,” because not all black lives matter, nor do all white lives matter, as far as I’m concerned. For example, a black comedian-actor, who is currently in prison because he drugged up women and then took advantage of them while they were unconscious. Now, what kind of sicko would do that? So as far as I’m concerned, if he were to keel over and croak that wouldn’t “matter” to me. The same thing with any perpetrator of violence, aggression or any violation of any victim’s person, life, liberty or property, whether the perpetrator is white or black or Asian or Hispanic, etc.

And the same goes for “Blue Lives Matter” as well. If a cop murders someone in cold blood, or even harasses and terrorizes some innocent person, that cop doesn’t “matter” to me.

I’m not going to put all people of one particular race, skin color, occupation, religion, etc. in a group and say “____ Matters,” because that would be implying all the people in that one particular group.

That is because we are individuals. This group identity obsession is a pathological cult now, the cult of identity politics, especially race and gender.

I stand for the victim of any act of aggression perpetrated by any aggressor. I touched on this in another post last week. I don’t stand with “Black Lives Matter” if some of its members terrorize a neighborhood, burn down businesses, break into businesses and loot from them, just as I don’t stand with the U.S. military when its members invade a foreign country, terrorize its people, break into homes and businesses and steal from them and rape and shoot and kill their people.

By the way, Sharyl Attkisson points out some of the black-on-white violent attacks that have taken place associated with “racism” protests, and she provides some disturbing videos as well.

Regarding the University of Massachusetts nursing school dean who was fired for writing “Everyone’s Life Matters,” Jonathan Turley wrote about that and pointed out how a lot of university faculty members all across the country are afraid to speak out against the censorship and purging of those who said or wrote politically-incorrect, officially-unapproved, and even non-offensive things. This is way not good in a free society. Academic freedom used to be the policy on college campuses, but it seems to be no more. Now the policy is a totalitarian, Archie Bunker-style intolerance (“Stifle yourself, Edith!), yes, just like the “right-wing neanderthals” of the past.

Is it really a good idea to suggest that black lives matter more than other, non-black lives? Why does it seem like Black Lives Matter doesn’t think that all black lives matter? Why is it offensive to suggest that “ALL lives matter,” or that “Everyone’s life matters”? It isn’t offensive, and it’s absurd to think that it is. And why is every little thing so offensive to people that we have to have censorship, Nazi-like book burnings, statue destruction and firing people for saying something totally innocent? What is wrong with people?

Anti-Capitalist Corporate Amerika

Robert Wenzel with a post on corporations aiming to boycott Fakebook, but not for the right reasons, no, for very wrong reasons. It’s because Fakebook is not censoring “hate speech” enough. Of course, one person’s “hate speech” is another person’s “normal speech.” The anti-“hate speechers” tend to be those who think that “hate speech” means speech that criticizes the gubmint, or that criticizes or makes fun of stupid, silly people, like Hillary Rotten Clinton, or Ronald McDonald Trump, or entities such as Fakebook.

In my view, there is no need for censorship of so-called “hate speech.” This is why those platforms have something called “comments” sections, so that if you do disagree with the post, you can write something on there yourself and explain your disagreement. But the censorship/book-burning Nazis don’t agree with me there. They just want to ban speech that isn’t what they have been trained by their elders or teachers to be acceptable and tolerable.

Wenzel writes: “More than 150 companies have decided to stop advertising spending on Facebook for the month, including Verizon, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Honda, Lending Club, Ben and Jerry’s and The North Face.” Humph. I have a great jacket by North Face that I got at TJ Maxx. Oh, well.

Wenzel also mentions that the anti-capitalist movement is also going after Target for calling cops on black shoplifters. Does this mean they don’t call the cops on white shoplifters? I find that very hard to believe. If I had a store, I’d call the cops on anyone who is stealing from me. Couldn’t care less what your skin color is. What matters is what you do. Shame on shoplifters.

Corporate Amerika should take its nose out of social activism, and stick with attempting to provide the best products and services so that our standard of living can go back up following the current decline that was caused by brainwashed social activists.
