Taking it all back

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

Starting this week and running through at least Inauguration Day, armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols and at the U.S. Capitol, according to an internal FBI bulletin obtained by ABC News.

The FBI has also received information in recent days on a group calling for “storming” state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings in the event President Donald Trump is removed from office prior to Inauguration Day. The group is also planning to “storm” government offices in every state the day President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated, regardless of whether the states certified electoral votes for Biden or Trump.

“The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January,” the bulletin read. “They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”

As well it should. The part I like best of all I’ll put in bold:

Following the violent pro-Trump breach of the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday, Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives pushed forward Monday with an effort to get Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment, which would declare Trump incapable of performing his presidential duties and would install Pence as acting president until Biden is inaugurated Jan. 20.

The effort was ultimately blocked by Republican Rep. Alex Mooney of West Virginia, and House Democrats then introduced an article of impeachment against Trump for “incitement of insurrection.”

The measure, which has more than 200 Democratic co-sponsors, states Trump has “demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law.

Delicious, innit? Demonrat scum are waxing all CONCERNED!!! about a purported “threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution” all of a sudden—three things that they have never, EVER bothered themselves in the least about before. As for that “self-governance and the rule of law” guff? Don’t. Just…don’t. I mean it, don’t EVEN.

I ran this tune not too long ago, but recent events have rendered it truly evergreen.



Think you’re too cynical?

You’re almost certainly not cynical enough.

I’ve been ranting for years about the perfidy of the left. At times I’ve been accused of exaggerating. On rare occasions I feared – or hoped? – that perhaps I was exaggerating. In fact I can now see that these people are worse than I ever imagined. Worse than most of us ever imagined.

Worse, even, than Donald Trump, with all his insight, imagined.

He went into office determined to clean up the swamp. He was tireless. But not tireless enough. No mere mortal could have been tireless enough. Trump had denounced the swamp in apocalyptic terms, but it proved to be even deeper and more extensive than he knew. It reached into the upper echelons of the intelligence community and the military, into cabinet departments and the judiciary.

Not only did the Democrats try to derail his campaign and then his presidency. Even people whom he appointed to White House jobs proved unreliable. Far from being too suspicious, he’d been too trusting. He’d appointed two-faced D.C. insiders. He’d trusted people who turned out to be snakes in the grass.

The news media, with very few exceptions, made it their task to thwart his progress and poison his name with a constant flow of disinformation. They said Trump had told people to drink bleach. They said he’d called neo-Nazis “good people.” They said many other outrageous things that they knew were outright lies. They relentlessly repeated the charge that he did nothing but lie, lie, lie, when in fact it was they, the media, who were constantly feeding us lies.

As all this happened, I tried to figure out what it reminded me of. It took two days to come up with the answer. It was the 1960 movie Spartacus. After his army has crushed the slave rebellion, Crassus (Laurence Olivier) promptly initiates the ruthless transformation of the Roman Republic into an empire, telling the republican senator Gracchus (Charles Laughton):

As the slaves died, so will your rabble if they falter one instant in loyalty to the new order of affairs. The enemies of the state are known. Arrests are in progress; the prisons begin to fill. In every city and province lists of the disloyal have been compiled. Tomorrow they will learn the cost of their terrible folly, their treason.

When Gracchus, the leader and hero of Rome’s deplorables, asks where his own name stands on Crassus’s list, Crassus shoves it in his face and shouts: “First!”

Yes, the author of the novel Spartacus, Howard Fast, was a Communist. So was Dalton Trumbo, who wrote the script. In Trumbo’s mind, Crassus’s list may well have been, at least in part, a reference to the Hollywood Blacklist, which had caused a brief hiccup in his own otherwise spectacular career. But for millions who saw the film, the idea of listing, arresting, and imprisoning “enemies of the state” would surely have brought to mind, above all else, the terrible reign of Stalin, who had died seven years earlier. Today it also recalls the brutal tyranny of Mao.

There’s no intrinsic magic about America that protects it from becoming Mao’s China or Stalin’s Russia. Only utopians believe in the perfectibility of man. People are people. And some of the people who are now, or are about to be, in power in the United States would, if accorded enough power, do far more to those of us who falter in loyalty than merely take away our social-media accounts.

Indeed, as scary as the situation may be right now, one thing’s for certain: worse is on its way.

Believe it. If the historical record is any guide, and it is, the current Great Purge is just the beginning.

Farewell to Kaithy Shaidle

She left us with one hell of a fine obituary.

Following a tedious rendezvous with ovarian cancer, Kathy Shaidle has died, wishing she’d spent more time at the office.

Her tombstone reads: GET OFF MY LAWN!

She is relieved she won’t have to update her LinkedIn profile, shave her legs, or hear “Creep” by Radiohead ever again. Some may even be jealous that she’s getting out of enduring a Biden presidency.

Kathy was a writer, author, columnist and blogging pioneer, as proud of her first book’s Governor General’s Award nomination as of her stint as “Ed Anger” for the Weekly World News. A target for “cancel” culture before the term was coined, she was denounced by all the best people, sometimes for contradictory reasons.

Kathy did not lead a particularly “full life,” her existence having been comprised mostly of a series of unpleasant surprises. Her favourite corporeal pleasure was saying, “I told you so,” which she was able to utter with justification multiple times a day. A bookish movie-buff and agoraphobic homebody, as a child Kathy (as per the Roz Chast cartoon) “always preferred the little couch ride on the merry-go-round.” Yet Kathy managed to acquire a reputation for mouthiness, a side effect of her bullshit allergy.

Contrary to cliche, Kathy did not conduct herself with particular “grace,” “dignity” or “courage” in her final months. She didn’t “bravely fight on” after her cancer was pronounced terminal. All she did was (barely) cope, and then only with assistance from her generous employer, and some energetic and selfless friends whom she’d somehow managed to acquire over the years, much to her astonishment. Of course, the greatest of these was her stalwart beloved of over 20 years, Arnie, with whom she is now in the ultimate long distance relationship. They can all finally catch up on their sleep.

Kathy’s bereaved co-blogger Mark Steyn adds:

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Kathy Shaidle, a dear friend and our peerless movie essayist, who left us just before six o’clock this morning at Mississauga Hospital in Ontario.

In a too short life, Kathy wrote in almost every form: She is the only writer I know who was both a respected poet nominated for major prizes and the “Ed Anger” columnist of The Weekly World News. And, as most of you know, after 9/11 she became the leading Canadian polemicist in the great messy decentralized blogosphere we miss so much in the age of Social Media woketalitarianism.

There will be time to discuss all that in the days ahead. But on Saturday evenings, for the past several years, Kathy was here every week to talk about movies. A decade or so back, I had suggested to the fellows who run Maclean’s that they snap her up to do a column on pop culture, because nobody wrote better on Joan Crawford, punk and a zillion other subjects. They were a little nervous of that, and somewhere along the way Maclean’s ceased to be a thing, and so at some point I just thought, “Aw, nuts! We should snap her up ourselves.”

What I particularly loved about Kathy’s film essays was the occasional glimpses she gave us of her own life. One should not take it all as gospel: She had a carefully constructed persona as an agoraphobic misanthrope who never left the flat. Whereas, as Mark Steyn cruisers who had the good fortune to be at her dinner table will attest, in real life she was gregarious and occasionally (as I told her a couple of weeks back somewhat to her horror) verging on bubbly. I had the pleasure a few years ago of introducing her to half the Canadian cabinet over pizza at the Prime Minister’s house. Reading about it afterwards, the highly-strung leftie bloggers were horrified at the thought of the hated Shaidle piercing the holy sanctum of 24 Sussex Drive like a one-woman trial run for the mob’s storming of the US Capitol. But the various ministers of the Crown seemed to enjoy the opportunity to shoot the breeze with her – as we all did.

I especially love the Ed Anger business, which, despite having been an Anger devotee myself in the long ago and far away—despite a good friend of mine having also worked at WWN back in the halcyon Bat Boy era, even*—I didn’t know about before now. Steyn has a second Shaidle memorial post up, featuring a video compendium of scorching quotes from her appearances on the Mark Steyn Show.

Rest now, girlfriend; forever may you be be at peace. And: well done.

* Believe it or not, I actually had a Bat Boy t-shirt that was sent to me by said friend as a gift, a garment I wore with tremendous pride until the thing was nothing but a tattered rag, as any decent, right-thinking American would have. She also revealed the epic Bat Boy behind-the-scenes story to me back then—a sordid, shocking tale of love, bravery, and betrayal which is now so highly-classified I could easily be killed by shadowy Black-Ops assassins for even having brought it up.

The Black Gate opens

Trump versus the whole world.

It was naive for President Trump and his supporters not to realize that infiltration was guaranteed as it was necessary for the Establishment to turn massive support into a massive liability. This would achieve two purposes. One purpose was to terminate the challenge to the electors in the Senate, and it succeeded.

The other purpose served was to insure that Trump would not go out as a president whose reelection was stolen but as an insurrectionist. And it has succeeded.

Internationally Trump was denounced by NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg for not respecting democracy. “The outcome of this democratic election must be respected,” declared Stoltenberg. Stolen or not it is democracy to be rid of Trump.

British prime minister Boris Johnson declared that the US is the world symbol of Democracy and that it is vital there is a peaceful and ordered transfer of power, as if there was an actual insurrection taking place and an election not stolen.

The French President Macron declared: “What happened today in Washington, DC today is not American, definitely.” In other words, it is unamerican to protest a stolen election that the Establishment refuses to address.

With the American Establishment’s foreign puppets, Republicans, Trump’s own cabinet members, military leaders, and the presstitutes speaking with one voice setting up President Trump as an insurrectionist threat to democracy, the Democrats’ wild charges seemed credible.

To understand the extraordinary hatred of President Trump by the Establishment, listen to his inaugural address. He described the Establishment accurately as a force arraigned against the American people, a force that he intended to dismantle and restore America to the American people. This was a revolutionary challenge, a reckless one as Trump is a populist, not a revolutionary leading a determined movement. Moreover, Trump was so uninformed about Washington that he never succeeded in appointing anyone to his government, other than General Flynn (an immediate casualty of the Establishment) who agreed with his agenda of normalizing relations with Russia, bringing the troops home from the Middle East, ending NATO, and bringing the jobs home that American corporations had exported to China. Here was Trump unarmed taking on the American Establishment. This was an act of suicide as it has turned out to be.

People who think in terms of party politics have no likelihood of understanding the situation. The struggle is not Democrats vs. Republicans. or red states vs. blue states. It is the Establishment against the people. If you have any doubt about this, note that the US National Association of Manufacturers, always a throughly Republican organization, agrees with Schumer and Pelosi that Trump must be removed from office. Here is the organization’s statement: “Vice President Pence, who was evacuated from the Capitol, should seriously consider working with the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to preserve democracy.”

The National Association of Manufacturers want Trump out because they are the ones responsible for China’s rise, the US trade deficit and the destruction of half of the US middle class. All the goods and services imported from offshored production count as imports. It is the offshored production that is responsible for America’s trade deficit, not China.

The presstitutes throughout the Western world have intentionally misrepresented the January 6 rally in Washington in support of Trump. The rally had to be misrepresented, because no one in politics today anywhere in the Western World can demonstrate such massive support other than Donald Trump. No one turned out for Biden or Kamala during the presidential campaign. Their events, soon cancelled, had no attendees. Yet, they won the election? What saps people are. Who turns out for Merkel, Macron, Boris Johnson. No one even knows who the leaders are in the rest of the Western World.

Trump could not be permitted to leave office with such a massive showing of support—a terrible embarrassment to the corrupt scum who “speak for the people.” So the support had to be discredited by turning it into an insurrection ordered by Trump against Democracy, a holy word that is observed nowhere in the Western World.

Everyone who was not at the US Capitol building on January 6, which is the entire world except the Trump supporters, has been brainwashed, by a corrupt, despicable collection of media whores serving an Establishment of Oligarchs, that Donald Trump intended an insurrection, but it was defeated. By Whom?

It was Trump who called out the National Guard and who told his supporters to leave the Capitol and to go home.

What kind of people can present this as an insurrection that requires Trump’s removal from office and prosecution? The answer is totally evil people who have not only the United States but the entire Western World in their clutches.

The Western World is dead. It is now Mordor.

And here we all are, with nary an Aragorn, Gandalf, or even Frodo in sight. It’s funny, though, how Trump Nation went to DC intending to launch a revolution…but the cops were the only ones who remembered to bring any guns.

The long, dark tunnel

Is there a light at the end?

Now, with both media fanaticism and state power joined together, America’s emerging Totalitarian Left have the tools to “cleanse” America. It will wield the state power that Trump and cowardly conservatives refused to touch for four years.

Why then am I optimistic?

Yes, it will be tiresome having to master decentralized blockchains and various obscure technologies just to communicate. It will be stressful dealing with the constant threat of violence from the System or the System’s militant wing. But the whole process is forcing us to adapt to hostile conditions, something we should have been doing anyway. (It’s why VDARE.com has bought a castle).

And I think that it has to be this way. The logic of the Democrat/MSM hysteria is that there must be an ever-greater number of kulak-style enemies to be demonized and deplatformed. However, if you do that to enough people, deplatforming loses its sting.

It’s also mentally freeing us from having a stake in what goes on in Washington D.C. I don’t care about the various games our rulers are playing in the Middle East, the Pacific, and Eastern Europe. I love my country, but the Potomac Regime has very little to do with that country.

Where others see despair, I see a crucible, something that will pave the way for a true national rebirth. We are the heirs of those who endured Valley Forge. Greatness can emerge only from struggle.

With its absurd talk of “insurrection” and ludicrously obvious double standards, the Ruling Class has designated tens of millions of deplorables as something less than citizens, people outside respectable society.

It’s a mistake. Our rulers need us. We don’t need them.

Like I’ve always said, I’m a short-term pessimist. This week’s events may look like a tactical set-back. But it’s just speeding something up that was happening anyway.

In the end, no matter what we do, millions of Americans are about to feel the iron boot of repression—something we at VDARE.com have been dealing with for some time.

Nevertheless, my guess is a lot of us are going to look at each other, as American patriots did after George III responded to their Olive Branch Petition by declaring them traitors subject to the death penalty, and conclude that whatever our differences, “Now we will all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

In the end, I think that will be enough to win.

In the end, it’s gonna have to be.

Afraid of us?

They sure ain’t acting like it.

January 8, 2021. As a conservative political writer, which I’ve been for some time, Friday night had the weird feel of a surrealistic, conservative-thought-purging Kristallnacht.

First and most surreal, Jack Dorsey’s Twitter permanently banning the account of the President of the United States. Not for some singular awful thing Donald Trump did, said, or tweeted — but for what he might do, say, or tweet in the future. That is profound.

For that reason, Dorsey, in all of his smug, left-wing arrogance, said, in effect, “F**k you!” to 74 million Americans who supported and voted for Trump, “You don’t matter.

But that was just the beginning.

As the day and evening unfolded, we learned that Google had suspended conservative-leaning Parler from its app store, pathetically citing an “urgent public safety threat” as its reason, and Apple had given Parler a 24-hour ultimatum to, in effect, clean up its conservative act. Coincidence? Not a snowball’s chance.

A few hours later, Google issued a similar ultimatum telling Parler that its app’s listing in the Google Play store would be suspended until it implements a moderation plan that will address “this ongoing and urgent public safety threat.”

Clearly, this was a planned, coordinated attack. Just as clearly, it was an ominous harbinger of more to come. In a word, conservatives, I’m afraid we ain’t seen nothin’, yet. As Friday evening continued to unfold, I found myself pondering the answer to one question:

Why are they so afraid of us?

They aren’t. They’re in the process of subjugating and suppressing Real Americans—brazenly so, defiantly so, right out in the open, without a care for anything we might think, say, or do about it. That is NOT the kind of behavior associated with one who fears those he’s attacking. It’s behavior you’d expect from a confident, secure antagonist who believes victory is all but certain.

Which is why taking any option imaginable off the table, up to and including physical violence against the enemy, is such a huge mistake. By pre-emptively foreswearing weapons and tactics he has no compunction about using against you himself—because BETTER THAN THAT, NOT WHO WE ARE!!!™—you only reassure your opponent that his assumption of victory is correct.

The Enemy’s commitment to winning is absolute; he is ruthless, untroubled by doubt or conscience. He acknowledges no boundaries of any kind to limit his campaign to destroy us. If our own resolution is even one iota less firm than his, then we might as well surrender now and save all involved a lot of pointless hassle. We were conquered well before the first shot was fired.

Fear not, America: Your FBI™ is on the job

I know I said was just about done with posting about, or paying the least bit of attention to, any more election-theft news. But this one sorta grabbed me for some reason.

BREAKING: FBI Claims Jurisdiction and Yesterday Took Control of Shredded Ballots Being Analyzed in Georgia – Sends Them Back to Shredder
The FBI in Georgia stopped the forensic analysis of shredded ballots, took the ballots away from the forensic team and brought them back to the shredder.

The FBI demanded that they had jurisdiction of the review of ballots in Georgia. Then yesterday the FBI took control of the shredding truck and materials and demanded the shredding operation be completed.

Yep, just openly laughing in our faces now. But hey, no sweat; we’re really gonna show ’em in 2024! Right, gang?

They’re coming

Cowards, chickenshits, poltroons—gutless, twisted scum.

Our rulers did not enjoy being driven out of the U.S. Capitol. They will seek revenge.

Politicians scampered away through underground passages like frightened bunny rabbits on Wednesday. One report says they “sprinted down to the basement and through the subway tunnels.” Photos show our ruling elites cowering and playing dead. This is the behavior of prey animals. Rabbits may freeze in the presence of a threat.

Journalists were not important enough for the tunnels. A hero at Politico announced “we are hiding behind chairs and tables.” Another valiant journalist was “having a panic attack.” But instead of setting up the gallows, patriots merely doused the paid propagandists with fire extinguishers.

It was humiliating. It was embarrassing. It is something that our self-appointed betters are determined to make impossible to happen again. The deplorables cannot be permitted to fight back.

Normal Americans will be tempted to point out Democrats’ hypocrisy. Our self-described betters spent 2020 excusing attempts by the street commies to burn down federal courthouses and police stations. The left normalized street violence and occupying government buildings. They turned a blind eye to “autonomous zones” run by warlords. NPR served up the official propaganda with its fawning interview of the author of In Defense Of Looting. We are not allowed to remember that left-wing protesters stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol and Capitol Hill not too long ago.

Of course the left are hypocrites. But dwelling on their hypocrisy is poor preparation for the reality of Democrats taking over Washington, D.C. in two weeks. If federal police already are bold enough to collude with the Biden transition team and harass Patrick Byrne, imagine how much official mischief will happen after the inauguration. The Anti-Domestic Terrorism Act of 2021 isn’t going to write itself. For our anti-American elites who loathe devout Christians, gun owners, and sundry deplorables, Christmas will arrive early this year.

The left is so unhinged they can’t wait until the inauguration to get rid of President Trump. Democrats are demanding that Vice President Pence “invoke the 25th Amendment and begin the process of removing President Trump from office.” A second impeachment attempt is in the works, along with plans to get rid of Sen. Ted Cruz for daring to raise the possibility of election fraud.

Consider what is being done to Trump even by nominal Republicans like Mitt Romney. They want him gone, if not in Gitmo. Twitter gave the president the boot. Facebook exercised its constitutional authority to declare a national emergency and delete a presidential video. Meanwhile, Iran is asking Interpol to arrest Trump on charges of killing an Iranian general. Perhaps Attorney General Merrick Garland can help a fellow out.

If they can do this to a sitting president, they can do it to anyone.

They most certainly can…and take it the bank, they will. In fact, they’ve already started.

Can’t unscrew a country

Not when it’s this badly screwed up, you can’t.

You Can Unscrew A Lightbulb…
Can you unscrew a country? A country that’s just been hijacked by a gang of Usurpers who lack all sense of morality and restraint?

Forget the Constitution. Forget “democracy.” Forget “the rule of law.” These have become “inoperative,” to borrow a word from the Watergate years. They’ve been reduced to passwords: “shibboleths,” if you will, that if deployed skillfully and in the right circumstances, will get a member of the Usurper Class thirty seconds of coverage on CNN. No longer does any vestige of their original meaning inhere in them. There are now only Rulers and Ruled.

The Rulers have excavated a gulf to separate themselves from the Ruled. It’s intended to be uncrossable. Indeed, there are persons whose sole function is to prevent any of the Ruled from crossing it. Yet a tiny trickle will construct bridges of money and influence that they’ll pull in behind them. The tech barons. The identity-group demagogues. The elite among the talking heads.

A great and indefinite struggle has begun. Some individuals will maneuver to attain a position within the Rulers: some to slake their power-lust; others merely to secure and expand their personal interests. Meanwhile, the rest of us will strive to remain out from under their crosshairs.

If there is to be no armed uprising, no military effort to take the country back from the Usurpers, then America is lost…quite likely forever.

Laws will be passed late at night, sometimes in complete secrecy. Federal agents will be granted ever broader powers to interrogate, imprison, and despoil private citizens. Those of us who want only to be left alone will find any degree of personal privacy difficult to achieve. Those who have a little something to defend will be forced to elaborate, clandestine measures to defend it. Those who are targeted for destruction – a class that includes everyone who has spoken out against the Usurpers – will find it all but impossible to evade or placate their attackers.

Elections? You can forget about them. The Usurpers have already captured the election mechanisms – the Boards of Election and the Secretaries of State – and they will do whatever it takes to retain iron control of them. There will be no salvation from that front.

The Usurpers’ campaign to suborn our public institutions, our channels of information and communication, and our educational systems began more than a century ago. It has come to fruition. All that remains are our arms and our willingness to use them…if we’re willing to use them.

Correa puts it bluntly.

Oh, we are so fucked. Today is nothing. It’s probably going to get worse, because we’re on a road that I can’t see any off ramps.

Sorry, here comes a rant.

People are confused and constantly bombarded by conflicting information, some correct, some bullshit, and nobody knows what to believe because nobody trusts the people we are supposed to be able to trust. Then we have a super powerful global media complex that straight up gas lights everyone, and we’re shocked the people have lost trust in information sources.

Then when people have valid concerns, they get mocked, belittled, and insulted. They get gas lighted and told what they’ve seen with their own eyes didn’t happen, and then they’re “fact checked” with things that are basically a list of excuses generated by partisans who have zero clue what they’re talking about.

Repeat that daily, for literally every topic, and you get to a point where nobody trusts anybody and we have massive competing groups that can’t even agree on basic pieces of relative truth anymore. And social media then rubs that in everyone’s face, so we don’t feel any commonality with our countrymen.

But that’s basically because we are several different countries crammed into one. As a people we’ve got two primary philosophies with a bunch of offshoots of those two, except they are mutually exclusive and cannot exist at the same time. So instead we get a muddled mixture of nonsensical bullshit that isn’t really either, but is primarily a vehicle that exists to benefit the same people who benefit from our totally untrustworthy information sources.

Then let’s have a global pandemic, make everybody poorer, put them out of work, make everything they would normally do to blow off steam illegal, and once again if they express any concerns about this situation and the conflicting information presented to them, they get insulted, belittled, disparaged, and disrespected.

Then let’s have riots and looting and arson and murder for months on end, where the rule of law appears to be a one way street.

Oh, and let’s have a bunch of scandals with our political betters that tell everybody we have a two tiered justice system, where we’re peasants, but our moral betters can do pretty much anything and get away with it.

All while our information sources obviously lie and conflict with each other and run interference for their powerful friends, but giant soulless mega corporations will straight up destroy regular mundane people if they feel like it.

And then at the very end of this shitty year, let’s have a election that is insanely anomalous in a bunch of ways, but let’s not actually investigate it in any meaningful manner, and instead let’s just insult anybody who is concerned about it.

Because nothing bad could possibly happen from tens of millions of people believing that their votes will never matter again and the system is irreparably rigged against them in a country with billions of guns and nuclear weapons.

Whew…And that’s just this year, after the last two decades of escalating tensions in a country filled with people who hate each other’s fundamental beliefs.

Which brings us to now…Which is why when buildings start exploding and politicians get beheaded, I won’t be in the least bit surprised.

And I’m usually the optimist. I’m seeing people I would consider boring vanilla normies, not gun culture people, not Trumpkins, not preppers, not even that political, now talking about violence and revolution like those are perfectly normal topics. Twenty years ago that was reserved for us internet gun nuts and taboo crazy talk for everyone else.

Yeah…we are basically fucked.

Our self-appointed Rulers know not what they do. They need some serious schooling.

Sorry, not sorry

Another extensive excerpt, but there’s still lots of it left to be read. It’s well worth the reading too.

Here, I guess, I should apologize for not joining the rest of the media in feigning outrage and calling for the trespassers to be tried for treason. But I’m neither outraged nor feeling vengeful because of their act of civil disobedience.

I understand it. It was an inevitable repercussion from 2020 and what we’ve all witnessed the last decade. It was Sir Isaac Newton’s third law come to life.

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

For four years now, the billionaire and millionaire elites who control academia, the mainstream media, politics, popular culture, and the sports world have framed Trump supporters as racist deplorables worthy of elimination from society.

These same elites spent the past decade elevating Michael Brown, George Floyd, Jacob Blake, Rayshard Brooks, Eric Garner, and other resisting criminal suspects to icon status while simultaneously raising bail money for protesters willing to riot, loot, burn, and vandalize in the name of racial justice.

At this point, the Deplorables should be commended for their restraint. Antifa and Black Lives Matter search, burn, and destroy well into the wee hours. The Deplorables returned to their hotel rooms by nightfall and watched our lawmakers return to work inside the Capitol by 8 p.m.

The critics say President Trump provoked Wednesday’s political “violence.” His refusal to concede a corrupt election baited his followers to overrun the Capitol with flags, put Ashli Babbitt in harm’s way, and do enough property damage to delay the Electoral College confirmation three or four hours.

Fine. Guilty as charged.

But our president for the next two weeks was not Lee Harvey Oswald, a lone provocateur. He had plenty of collaborators. They work on all the major and cable news and sports networks. They play in the NFL and NBA. They represent both political parties, hold high positions in Hollywood, at Netflix, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The people wagging their fingers the hardest at Trump and the Deplorables sanctioned, financed, and promoted political violence throughout all of 2020 and for much of the past decade.

Ashli Babbitt’s blood is on the hands of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg as much as, if not more than, on President Trump’s. That’s why Dorsey and Zuckerberg rushed to silence Trump on their respective platforms, Twitter and Facebook.

Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers, a man I greatly respect, lives in a different reality than I do. His interpretation of Wednesday’s chaos baffles me.

“No police dogs turned on people, no billy clubs hitting people. People peacefully being escorted out of the Capitol,” Rivers told reporters Wednesday. “So it shows you can peacefully disperse a crowd. It basically proves a point about a privileged life in a lot of ways. I will say it, because I don’t think a lot of people want to: Can you imagine [Wednesday], if those were all black people storming the Capitol, and what would have happened? That, to me, is a picture worth a thousand words for all of us to see, and probably something for us to reckon with again.”

What is he talking about? We’ve watched buildings burned to the ground this summer. We’ve seen “protesters” prowling the streets of Atlanta with semi-automatic weapons. We’ve seen protesters berate and spit on police officers. David Dorn, a 77-year-old, black retired cop, was assassinated. Parts of Portland have been under attack from Antifa and Black Lives Matter for months.

There have been no dogs, no billy clubs.

We don’t have to imagine how law enforcement would react to black, lawless protesters. It has aired on CNN, MSNBC, and FOX News all summer. The police have been remarkably restrained.

The media, athletes, and celebrities have treated black protesters as heroes. Politicians have taken knees and worn kente cloth to show allegiance with black protesters. Every national sportscaster and head coach has gone along with the facade that police pose a greater threat to black men than black men. We’re inundated with television commercials promoting Black Lives Matter. The NFL has celebrated criminals involved in drive-by shootings. A laundry list of media personalities have taken turns rationalizing every violent, lawless action taken by Antifa or Black Lives Matter. No one cares that George Floyd stuck a gun in a pregnant black woman’s belly or that Jacob Blake sexually assaulted a black woman. The New York Times commissioned a group of black female reporters to rewrite American history to fit the narrative of the critical race theory taught at our academic institutions.

A Trump supporter? He or she is an American pariah. A racist. A coon. An idiot. A sellout. Someone to be silenced or ignored.

Trump supporters will not go away quietly or peacefully. It’s their country, too. Their concerns are legitimate. The lawmakers they chased to the basement of the Capitol sold out the American working-class man and woman.

Skin color does not explain the Trump phenomenon, the passion of his followers. Trumpism is rooted in a rejection of the elitism, idolatry, and secularism pervasive in modern American culture.

In September 1620 — four hundred years ago — 102 passengers boarded the Mayflower, fleeing southern England and the elitist society constructed there. They were the original Trumpers, the dregs of European society in search of freedom of religion and expression.

Trumpism is the cry of American citizens uninterested in adopting the cultures and customs of France, China, Italy, Cuba, Venezuela, Canada, or any of the other places global elites romanticize. Trumpism is the cry of the working class who believe the Big Tech billionaires are building an America that cuts them out of the American Dream. Trumpism is the cry of Americans who value authenticity over the fraudulence of political correctness.

The price of ignoring their cries will be war, a civil war.

Realistically, war is the only thing that ever stood a chance of being successful against a Ruling Class as entrenched and amoral as this, and an Überstate as bloated, intrusive, and corrupt as the US federal government. The only options are a fight to the death or unconditional, abject surrender. There simply are no others now. Maybe there never really was.

So be it, then.



Curtains

Julie Kelly’s post mortem.

Within hours of the breach of the Capitol, Graham, who failed for four straight years to fulfill his repeated promises to “get to the bottom” of Barack Obama’s corrupt FBI, called for a special task force to investigate the “domestic terrorists” involved in the January 6 incident. “Sedition might be a charge for some of these people,” the tough talker warned. “The people sitting in the chairs need to be sitting in a jail cell.”

Thankfully, Ms Lindey long ago proved zherself to be all mouth. So if he holds true to form, nobody needs to fear anything at all from him this time either.

Graham claimed Trump’s “actions” before the incident “tarnished” the president’s accomplishments in office—accomplishments, by the way, that Trump achieved with little help from Senate Republicans, including Graham.

Ending their reign in humiliation and defeat, capped off with final gasps of grandstanding and betrayal, is a fitting end to the GOP Senate in the Trump era.

Trump supporters, unfortunately, didn’t deserve what they got in the end, as they endured more mockery and contempt from the media, Democrats, and NeverTrump hucksters alleged to be in their own political party. The lax double standards that apply to BLM rioters and Antifa thugs, of course, did not apply to the handful of troublemakers who vandalized the Capitol. Just a short trip down memory lane showed politicians and journalists cheering the takeover of the Hart Senate Office Building in October 2018 by leftist “protestors” angry about Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and attacks on U.S. senators. But that wasn’t enough to expose the hypocrisy of the moment.

Like so many times before—be it a mob in Charlottesville or pro-life high schoolers at the Mall in Washington—it was death by proxy. Reporters and pundits want to “cleanse” the country of 75 million Trump supporters, language unthinkable just four years ago.

Trump’s presidency will end, but it’s unclear where he goes from here. The Republican Party as we know it also is over; the GOP’s disloyalty to the president and his voters in the final stretch will not be soon forgotten. And Republican control of the Senate during the Trump era ends just how it began, in making a bargain to do the Left’s bidding and ultimately acting as the Democratic Party’s useful idiots.

Democrats will control the White House, the Senate, and the House for the first time since 2009. A feeble near-octogenarian will pretend to govern as his ambitious vice president waits in the wings for her chance to rule. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will try to inflict God-knows-what on the country for at least the next two years.

It’s unlikely that will end well, either.

It didn’t have to end this way. Senate Republicans could have tackled election illegalities if for no other reason than to the placate the base. The president could have been far better prepared to confront voter fraud cases and stayed focused on the more provable examples rather than fringy, hard-to-prove accusations. The Republican Party could have acted like the Democratic Party by demanding state lawmakers in swing states push back harder.

But none of it happened.

The end.

The End indeed. David DeGerolamo presents an exciting scenario:

Based on the information from Italy concerning the CIA’s manipulation of the 2020 presidential election, Texas formally declines to recognize Joe Biden’s inauguration. The dispute between Texas and the federal government is not resolved. Texas secedes citing the breach of the Constitution’s election requirements and voter fraud. Florida secedes and joins the new American Union (AU) under President Trump. Other states start to debate which is the legal government. The Biden administration orders federal troops to put down the “rebellion”.

What will people do in the existing United States when their state governments try to overthrow the new country since the majority of the people voted for Trump? Why is President Trump in Abilene, TX? If President Biden did not have dementia, he would realize that his “administration” will be short lived or dead on arrival.

I like it, but Texit ain’t gonna happen. As for Trump, if he’s at all smart he already got himself, his family, and as big a portion of his wealth as he could quickly gather the hell out of this blighted country altogether, and will never set foot here again.

“This country is done”

Nothing left now but to stick a fork in—a pitchfork, that is, DEEP into the treasonous curs who killed her.

So many emotions. I’m not even sure what to say at this point. I’m disappointed, angry, disgusted, sad, and heartbroken. The Republic is Dead. This country is done. We will now have to fight our way out of communism. If you do not bow down and kiss the feet of this government, you are now a terrorist and an enemy of the state.

Trump blew it yesterday. He had an opportunity to present his evidence and “Release the Kraken”, instead we got a rally speech. It was funny listening to the speakers yesterday who are under the impression that we can vote our way back out of this in two and four years. Makes me laugh. I don’t think they understand that voting is now useless and we will be told who will rule over us from now on. Georgia anyone? Yeah I caught a lot of flak for Georgia from those who still wanted to believe. At least Georgia finally opened some eyes and put that final nail in the coffin of our vote meaning anything.

The time for action is now! We will never be any stronger than we are now. The Conservative grifters who have egged this on but want to put the brakes on it now that they see it’s serious, and will cost them their lucrative gigs and cocktails at the DC watering holes with their Liberal buddies need to be outed and shamed. Bye-bye. Accept it, you grifters have lost control now and your days of swindling us are over.

We need to do to every state house what was done at the Capitol, and then some. It’s time for us to play by their rules. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Our enemies are the most scared of us at this point that they’ve been in a year. THIS is the time to strike. Who will lead it?  Here in North Carolina our Governor Cooper is momentarily off balance (his news conference hinting at coming lockdowns was annihilated by actual citizen action). But if he has enough time to regroup, he’ll double down to teach us a lesson. We’ve GOT to go after him before then. If a state will go after their lockdown Governor within a week, Patriots in other states will be inspired and hopefully follow.

These Communist have stolen and killed America. Best get your minds wrapped around that. Their Pravda decry us as violent, and cheaters, trying to steal an election. When in fact it is them that has stolen this election in broad daylight and have dared us to do something about it.

Wes closes with Paine’s famous quote that begins: “These are the times that try men’s souls.” True then—and, alas for us, true now.

He’s got a little list

Our old friend Silverdeth, that is. To wit:

Can we compile a list of every “Conservative” pundit, writer, reporter, talker, website, and politician who has betrayed us in the last few days – complete with links? I am going to start a list, complete with quotes, of who our enemies are, so we can pass it off to normies.

There’s already quite a few names on it, sad as that is, and it’ll only get longer. Thanks to another old friend, OverMountainMan, for the tip.

Update! Cap’n Smith gives ’em a real no-shitter.

This will be brief, but I must say that as I’ve had time to think about it, I don’t really care what happened in Washington, D.C., except that a good woman perished. I don’t really care if it was a false flag event, I don’t care what was or wasn’t accomplished. I wouldn’t care if the capital building had been burned to the ground. I don’t do business there, and any shutdown of the business of the controllers can’t help but be good for the liberty of America.

But what I do care about is the rank, despicable, repulsive hypocrisy of those who enjoy the liberty bought for them by the blood, sweat, tears, toil, labor and in some cases the lives of better men who risked everything to purchase that independence from tyranny – but then who demand that the very tactics they chose to obtain that independence, absolutely necessary tactics as proven by the fact that the king had dispatched his armies, are never acceptable, bring nothing good, never accomplish anything worthy, and are to be avoided at all costs.

Violence against King George didn’t accomplish anything good, until it did, and liberty was purchased and freedom won. Spare me the moralistic preening, screaming outrages, and demands for justice. Those demands should have been proffered over the 2020 election fraud rather than the people who rebelled against that national crime.

And if you wish to criticize what happened at the capital, spare me your complaints about the next four years. I’m not interested in hearing them. Shut up and take it. You lost your moral justification with your claims that violence gets you nothing. Violence brought an end to the Islamic occupation of Europe, where little girls were raped and turned into sex slaves, boys were forced to become Islamic hoodlums, women were raped and then killed, and all of this happened in front of the men who were then tortured and killed.

Your threshold for invoking violence may or may not be the equivalent of mine or anyone else, but don’t tell me that violence gets you nothing and then reach for a gun when a criminal busts in your door to harm your family.

It lines up nicely with the bumper sticker slogan: Except for slavery, Naziism, fascism, and Communism, war never solved anything. I gotta wonder if those frail, delicate types whinnying and pawing the turf in indignation over Wednesday’s “unacceptable” uprising know what they’re really saying when they borrow Obama’s “That’s not who we are!” catchphrase to vilify people who, after all, were following a precedent set by men like Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Paul Revere, Nathanael Greene, Ethan Allen, &c?

The blood of patriots

Couldn’t come up with a way to improve on ZMan’s title, so I lifted it.

Yesterday, Ashli Babbitt was shot in the neck and died while protesting inside the Capitol with other protestors. A group of angry Trump supporters had got into the building and were making a racket. This is not an unusual occurrence. During the Kavanaugh hearings, Democrats organized mobs of screeching women to harass Republicans in the halls of the Capitol. Party media was there to celebrate it as the purest expression of democracy. It was power to the people time.

That was not the case yesterday, according to the media. Instead, it was a direct threat to “our” democracy. This is a bit ironic in that the protests are over the obvious corruption in the election system. The direct threat to democracy is the people demanding their elections be fair and honest. That’s why Ashli Babbitt was inside the Capitol making a racket. Her whole life she had been told this was how citizens angry at their government demand redress when the system fails.

That is how popular government is supposed to work. The people expect their government to be responsive to the will of the people. When they don’t like that they see, they vote for different people to hold office. If those politicians ignore the people, then the people go bang on their door and demand redress of their grievances. The politicians then come out and address their issues. That’s not it works now. Instead, they open fire on the people like they did yesterday.

Ashli Babbitt was not some drug-addled degenerate, like we saw last summer, when the ruling class unleashed their mobs on us. She was a veteran, serving 14 years in the US Air Force, and she was a high-level security official throughout her time in service. She was like most of the people at the protest, in that she had bought into what she was told about America. So much so she signed onto serve in the military and go overseas in various deployments.

Of course, unlike George Floyd, Ashli Babbitt will not get three nationally televised funerals and be treated as a fallen hero. That honor goes to drug-addled criminals who overdose in police custody. In this America, patriots who served their country and exercise their rights get gunned down by agents of the state. This woman, this patriot, bleeding out in the halls of the Capitol, murdered by an agent of the state, is the perfect image of what has gone terribly wrong in America.

No doubt, millions of decent people who sympathized with her cause are saddened by this terrible tragedy. It did not have to come to this. This was not an accident. This was not a terrible misfortune. The people on the other side of that door, the people who celebrate the murderer of Ashli Babbitt now, they did this. They created this crisis that threatens to plunge to country into a death spiral. They had choices and they had plenty of warning, but they refused to listen and now Ashli Babbitt is dead.

This is one of ZMan’s all-time best; my excessive excerpting notwithstanding, you’ll want to read all of it.

I’ve seen reports that the bloodthirsty, cowardly pig—a word I do NOT just lightly throw around, not ever—who wantonly murdered Ashli was either Capitol Police or, as Z says, a member of the traitor Pence’s security detail. Whatever the case may be, the filthy scum should be doxxed, then spend the rest of his abbreviated existence being hounded by other patriots at his very doorstep. And that’s just for starters. If I was Ashli’s poor husband, I would certainly dedicate the rest of my life to, as Sgt Barnes said in Platoon, taking a personal interest in seeing him suffer.




Via WRSA, Yon says this means war.



Michael is definitely a guy who would know one when he sees one. How terrible that, at this point, we must hope he’s right. But one way or another, by any means necessary, we cannot allow this woman to die in vain. We MUST not.

Questions, questions

Looks like pretty much every conservablogger but me is tripping all over themselves in a mad rush to disavow the wrongity-wrong-wrongness of today’s horrendous and unacceptable events. A representative sample:

People will have different opinions on this. On the one hand, you will have people who say that the left-wing riots during the summer were met with cheer and applause by the media so what’s the point of being any better? On the other hand, this is logically dumb and counter-productive. One of the last vestiges of Trump’s movement was that his followers didn’t do this kind of thing. They kept their cool and showed their support in a way that made sense and was effective. Instead of burning things, they got out and knocked on doors. Shoving police at the Capitol while trying to storm the building accomplishes nothing but marginalizing the movement. Further, it’s simply not right. If you spent all summer denouncing violence in Kenosha and Minneapolis, you can’t now excuse this as acceptable.

Think not, do ya? Just watch me. Because one of these things is NOT like the other. Kenosha, Mogadish-apolis, and all the rest were sparked by a false narrative; incited and cheered on by the Left for purely political purposes; and intentionally allowed to take place and metastasize without interference from conniving shitlib governors and mayors, also for purely political purposes. They were part and parcel of a larger four-year campaign to, by hook or by crook, unseat a duly-elected President—a blunt-force reminder that Real Americans will no longer be allowed any say in who rules them.

Today’s uprising, in contrast, was an act of rebellion against a demonstrably corrupt, malificent, and illegitimate tyranny. It was a reaction by ordinarily peaceable citizens who, over the past two months, have watched as their last hope for a redress of legitimate grievances was denied them via a fraud so brazen as to amount to a personal insult. It all brings to mind a few questions for our esteemed (ie, non-shitlib) colleagues who are expressing such deep abhorrence for today’s “shocking violence”:

  • Just how the hell do you think this country came into being in the first place?
  • Is it your contention that the US government remains in accord with the blueprint drawn by the Founders in the Constitution?
  • Do you believe it “counter-productive” or “effective” that Americans meekly acquiesce to the theft of the 2020 election, thereby granting tacit consent to being robbed, as well as legitimacy to the scoundrels who robbed them?
  • Do you think the Founders would have been as compliant as we’ve been for so long? Based on what history tells us, do you think today’s uprising would mortify and shame them? Or would it make them proud?
  • Does this Tweet from one of Herschel’s readers resonate with you at all? Even a wee bit?

    IronyInDC.png

One more question, which I’ll preface with Ace’s bitter musing on the murder of Ashli Babbit:

Weird, because leftwing terrorists set fire to federal buildings and laid siege to a federal courthouse for an entire summer and at no point did the police or federal troopers ever use live rounds — in fact, they barely used even nonlethal rounds. They allowed themselves to be pummeled by antifa and BLM.

But now it’s time to use live ammunition on civilian protesters, huh?

I guess the use of violent force is permissible when putting down some protests!

What a surprise, it turns out that it’s conservatives that the agents of the state are allowed to beat, shoot, and kill!

Wow, this coin we keep flipping just keeps coming up against us!

My question: if today’s “mob violence” was “simply not right,” then is the only acceptable alternative for Real Americans to just knuckle under and accept life under tyranny?

Is there any hill you think is worth dying on? Any cause or principle to which we’re willing to pledge “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor”—and MEAN it?

Not to pick on the guy or anything, but Bonchie’s next passage raises a few more questions.

I’m probably speaking into the wind at this point, but here’s what Trump should actually do. Instead of worrying about whipping up his supporters at a final rally over a lost cause, he should be declassifying literally everything that would expose corruption within the government. Further, he should be forcing the selection of a special counsel to investigate Hunter and Joe Biden. Those are actions that would actually matter in the long term. This rioting at the Capitol doesn’t matter. It doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t expose anything.

Dude, SRSLY? So how much more corruption do you feel needs to be “exposed” at this late date, anyway? Is there any reason whatsoever to believe that exposing any damned thing at all is going to change anything? Or that another “special counsel” investigation either A) won’t be brought to a screeching, smoking halt right around, oh, early AM on January 21st after Biden’s “inauguration,” or B) end up yielding pretty much the same revolting caricature of “justice” that the Barr/Durham dumbshow produced?

Last question: Do Americans have the gall to go on calling it “the land of the free, the home of the brave” if they fail to resist this criminal charade and defy its perpetrators, to the very last ounce of their strength?

Update! Sarah Hoyt lays it down.

And for the record, no, I will not condemn the protesters. Should they have gone into the Capitol? I don’t know. Why shouldn’t they have? It’s not like they went and hanged the corruptocrats using their own intestines as ropes. They might — or might not. Really, do you trust the reporting? In this time, in this place? — have broken windows. And then walked, carefully between the ropes? Sure, why not. Let’s roll with that narrative. They might have made a mess of Nancy Ice Cream Pelosi’s office. Maybe. Again…. reporting?

You know what they didn’t do? They didn’t kill anyone. That was reserved for someone who shot through a door sidelight at a protester. You know what else they didn’t do? Use live ammo. You know what else they didn’t do? Trample the flag, which the capitol police did, while being begged not to. You know what else they didn’t do? shine lasers in cops eyes, set fire to the building, loot it, or shoot fireworks at people.

Spare me your pearl clutching. How do you propose we get our republic back if demonstrations are “rude?” When they committed blatant fraud in two elections, right before our eyes, and thereby abolished the representative part of the republic, and with it the constitutional part, what are you going to do? Write them strongly worded letters? Or wait till they fraud 2022 just as blatantly, while you stand around being utterly stunned?

It’s time to ditch the Marquis de Queensberry rules. It’s time to stop fighting with our feet in a bucket. Yes, what happened today was very very bad. Yes, it means that what comes next will probably come with a butcher’s bill. I have sons in military age. I’m not thrilled.

BUT the fault is not of the protesters. The fault is of the corruptocrats, yes, including the Supreme Court Justices, every one of them who found it easier to roll over for fraud and not let the ridiculous level of fraud in the elections have its day in court.

If you’re going to clutch pearls and tut tut do so at those who passed the buck, refused to do their jobs or sided with the left in the hopes of being eaten last.

The angry Americans, many of them despoiled out of their livelihoods by the elite’s Covid-19 fun and games designed to destroy the economy so they could steal the election, are the least guilty here. It’s quite likely — if G-d watches out for fools, children, and the United States of America — they’ll be held up as heroes some day.

Preach it, girlfriend. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Meanwhile, Steyn deployed Tucker’s mic to handily dispense with that “not who we are” bushwa.

People are surprised when a tactic that’s proved effective by one group of people, is taken up by another group of people.

People say ‘this is not who we are.’ Have you not turned on the tv since Memorial Day? This is EXACTLY who we are.

Nancy Pelosi told us she didn’t care about old statues. Mitch McConnell said he didn’t care about the names of military bases. But suddenly this old building is important now.

Know who brandished the “not who we are” admonishment more than just about anybody else? Three guesses.

The Washington Free Beacon has put together a video montage of Obama using his catchphrase, “it’s not who we are” 46 times.

Since there is little flexibility in his thinking, “not who we are” is likely to be used even more to delegitimize his opponents as his term in office runs down, his popularity sinks, and he becomes ever more desperate to stifle mounting criticism.

No matter how many times it’s used, it is a weak debate trick to muzzle his opponents by suggesting that no true American could possibly disagree with his point of view.

Says all you’ll ever need to know about the kind of people who say it, their real intentions, and their integrity.

Size matters

Wait, whut?!?

John Dillermand has an extraordinary penis. So extraordinary, in fact, that it can perform rescue operations, etch murals, hoist a flag and even steal ice-cream from children.

The Danish equivalent of the BBC, DR, has a new animated series aimed at four- to eight-year-olds about John Dillermand, the man with the world’s longest penis who overcomes hardships and challenges with his record-breaking genitals.

Unsurprisingly, the series has provoked debate about what good children’s television should – and should not – contain.

Even more unsurprisingly, said “debate” revolves entirely around political correctness and shitlib shibboleths rather than how just plain fucked up the whole thing is.

Since premiering on Saturday, opponents have condemned the idea of a man who cannot control his penis. “Is this really the message we want to send to children while we are in the middle of a huge #MeToo wave?” wrote the Danish author Anne Lise Marstrand-Jørgensen.

Christian Groes, an associate professor and gender researcher at Roskilde University, said he believed the programme’s celebration of the power of male genitalia could only set equality back. “It’s perpetuating the standard idea of a patriarchal society and normalising ‘locker room culture’ … that’s been used to excuse a lot of bad behaviour from men. It’s meant to be funny – so it’s seen as harmless. But it’s not. And we’re teaching this to our kids.”

Worse still, it presents not just a male but his huge schlong specifically not as a terrifying, rape-addled fiend but as a superhero, which as we all know is COMPLETELY unacceptable.

Erla Heinesen Højsted, a clinical psychologist who works with families and children, said she believed the show’s opponents may be overthinking things. “John Dillermand talks to children and shares their way of thinking – and kids do find genitals funny,” she said.

Well hey, who doesn’t? Let him who is without sin cast the first etc. Now, who’s ready to learn something new? I know I am!

Højsted conceded the timing was poor and that a show about bodies might have considered depicting “difference and diversity” beyond an oversized diller (Danish slang for penis; dillermand literally means “penis-man”). “But this is categorically not a show about sex,” she said. “To pretend it is projects adult ideas on it.”

An “oversized diller.” Am I a bad person for finding that hilarious? Yes, there’s a still from the show’s inaugural episode included, although the depiction of this heroic Übercock might not conform to your expectations. It seems to be wearing some kind of stripey sweater, in fact. Either that, or Dillermand’s Dillywand sports some amazing tattoo work.

Ehh, no matter. Go get ’em, Penisman! Only you can save us now.

Ruthlessly murdered by DC Chekisti swine.

KUSI News confirms identity of woman shot and killed inside US Capitol
WASHINGTON (KUSI) — The woman who was shot and killed inside the US Capitol during the protests was from the San Diego area.

The woman is Ashli Babbit, a 14-year veteran, who served four tours with the US Air Force, and was a high level security official throughout her time in service.

Her husband says she was a strong supporter of President Trump, and was a great patriot to all who knew her.

Heartfelt condolences to her family; may flights of angels sing her to her eternal rest. Ashli should be remembered and revered for all time as a courageous martyr to the cause of freedom. She died fulfilling her oath to the Constitution; all Real Americans now bear the sacred duty of seeing to it that she is righteously avenged, her sacrifice redeemed in fullest measure. May God bless her sould and comfort her grieving loved ones.

Wrong move

No. No, no, no, no, NO.


Don Jr, I love ya, I really do. I also understand that as a member of the First Family, there are certain things you simply cannot say. In fact, I’m sure you and your dad both are sincerely dismayed and saddened by today’s uprising. But I’m afraid I cannot agree with you on this.

“Not who we are”? If I never hear another human utter that surrender-monkey balderdash, that self-righteous rationalization for ongoing supine inaction, it will be too soon.

We do indeed have a country to save…and your way, the peaceful way, the legal way, has failed. Ironically enough, it’s unrequited forebearance—the insistence that Real Americans can rely only on pointless debate, decency, and the “rule of law”—that has brought us all to this sorry pass. If you truly hope to save the country, then abandoning Marquess of Queensberry rules in favor of below-the-belt punches, eye-gouging, and low blows is now the only way to get it done.

“Acting like the other side”? Acting as they have has served the Left extremely well, no matter what your opinion of their methods may be. While Normie sat tall and proud on his moral high-horse, sniffing in disdain at the dirty fight raging all around him, the Enemy was winning, using any and every means they thought might avail them. High time we took the gloves off, started using some of their own tactics against them, and notched a few victories of our own.

AT LAST, IT’S HAPPENING

I’ve been watching the news from DC and fielding call after call from all kinds of people all day, but I wanted to at least get one post up on the storming of the Capitol building, evacuation of Congressional traitor scum, and the like. It’s a sad day, but also a great one. This is the beginning of real, meaningful change at long last, and I pray that it continues on for however long it takes to achieve a successful retaking of our nation. Godspeed to all those brave patriots who willingly placed themselves in harm’s way to be a part of this historic effort. May tomorrow morning find DC liberally strewn with Commie traitor corpses, all lit up by the flames of Mordor On The Potomac burning to the fucking ground.

Consider this a sort of catch-all open thread for the nonce, y’all. I’ll have more to say this evening, you betcher.
