Tucker Carlson Flips at Rutger Bregman

 

I think this was a great unaired clip. “Tucker Carlson, you’re a millionaire funded by billionaires.” Continue reading Tucker Carlson Flips at Rutger Bregman

Operation Northwoods

I never heard about this before, but this is insane. It turns out that during the cold war were willing to commit terrorism on their own citizens to start a war with Cuba. This goes beyond Gulf of Tonkin or USS MAINE levels of falseflagging without killing anyone innocent.

This is the kind of shit people can do when they accept collateral damage and decide upon pure utilitarianism. Having heard about this, I can better understand how the 9/11 truthers reached their conclusions.

You know how that sociopath actor from Empire faked a hate crime? It’s the same level of madness. The drive to fight a perceived  monster with every tool you have can turn you into a monster. And if you listen to the military industrial complex they’ll always force you into more stupid wars, and then truth will be sacrificed.

Kyle Kulinski was wrong to think Senator Kevin Deleon would win

I just want to point out that he repeatedly predicted Kevin Deleon would win because he was more progressive, but in reality establishment Democrat Dianne Feinstein won in California. His prophecy failed, and the shitty centrist won, but he has continued to stick to the shtick that made him famous among progressives.

He has never talked about Kevin Deleon since the election, because that would mean owning up to his mistake. He would have to admit that in some races the centrist is more popular and will win.

Washington Post runs 4 hit pieces on Bernie Sanders in One Day

Yeah fuck these corporate democrats. I thought the Washington Post was above this even if they’re Neoliberal and are owned by the richest man in the world: Jeff Bezos. Democracy really dies in darkness, and the Washington Post is too often a tool of the neoliberal half of the establishment. Continue reading Washington Post runs 4 hit pieces on Bernie Sanders in One Day

Bernie Sanders announces he’s running for president in 2020

sonicrun
Hallelujah it’s happening! Out of all the Democrats Bernie Sanders still has the best name recognition, and proven reputation, and stands the best chance of beating Trump out of all of the progressive candidates. On top of that he can make decent inspirational speeches, lay out an actual political platform in a book, and listen to scientific people in interviews without telling them to shut up like Trump or other corporate conservatives.
He also isn’t just an empty suit like Kamala Harris or a corporate owned Democrat like Senator Amy Cloud Boot Jar of Minnesota. He also isn’t another neoliberal like Barack Obama. He’s a populist Democrat who can beat the populist right, and I hope he dominates the primary soon so support can coalesce around him, and then we’ll defeat Trump in 2020.
Don’t get distracted by any other candidates. They’ll complain Bernies Sanders is too old, and then when someone younger wins they’ll say he’s inexperienced. Don’t fall for it!!! Don’t let people trick you into choose another boring centrist Democrat who takes handouts from corporate lobbyists. Last time Sanders ran the whole campaign was financed by small donations from regular people, and he earned a reputation for being beholden to no lobbyists.
And boy can this 80 year old still run! Feel the Bern! I’d run with Sanders toward any train in 2020!

Boomers: Bernie should step down

“have the audacity of a boomer saying that bernie sanders, the most popular candidate among young people in modern history, should step aside for the next generation”

Z4zPJSlH_400x400

Yep, it’s hard to forgive Baby Boomers right now for totally destroying the liberal world order, and trying to destroy the Earth itself. Maybe my blog is evolving from an atheism blog into a Boomer hate blog, but that’s okay, as long as I’m staunchly supporting 80 year old Bernie Sanders you can’t call me ageist. It’s just the narcissism, conservativism, and gullibility of Boomers…the whole package of other vices that manifests within that generation which must be called out, because these arrogant pricks refuse to step out of government and the public sphere. Boomers don’t give a fuck about stepping down for the good of the country, or anything other than their material well being or self-image. Continue reading Boomers: Bernie should step down

Japan censors: Call the sex slaves “wartime laborers” now

(Source.) If you have to lie to make people love their country then maybe its time for you to face your country’s mistakes honestly. Then you can learn from history and become more lovable. It’s difficult for a thinking person to much love their country or trust it, if their country lies to them because it is narcissistic and insecure.

(And that goes for other countries including America too.) Complaining in English is rather pointless, so I also translated this into Japanese.

The line about honest historians being smeared as “Anti-Japanese” strikes a chord with me, because I hate the mindlessness of nationalism and while playing Socrates I’ve often been smeared the same way.  I have been accused too often in my life of being “Anti-American” if God forbid I ever criticize something about America in the company of a conservative who thinks he is somehow more American. Angry about CEO compensation? You’re anti-American! Constitutional checks not being followed? Somehow you’re anti-American! Want universal healthcare? Anti-American!

My impressions on William F. Buckley

When he first met author Ayn Rand, according to Buckley, she greeted him with the following: “You are much too intelligent to believe in God.”

(From wikipedia.)

Well, already I don’t like the guy though I’m too lazy to write a thorough rebuttal. I first discovered him when he had his ass handed to him in an Oxford debate (with James Baldwin) where he sided with the conservatives in the south. (That debate was over whether the American dream came at the expense of blacks in America.) There are many things to dislike about him, starting with how he speaks in that retarded, pretentious and very artificial Mid-Atlantic accent. I wonder if he was actually as smart as he pretends, since he was gullible enough to be swindled into defending a murderer. Maybe Americans were just more easily swindled and seduced by posh British accents back then? Continue reading My impressions on William F. Buckley

Greedy Amazon gives up on building HQ in New York city

 

Fuck Amazon, they’re a bad company concerned only with slashing costs and making profit. They don’t want to improve the world, just like most large companies, and I wish there was an alternative when you buy stuff. Well, Walmart and Ebay died so maybe someday a better option will replace Amazon.
I personally am thinking of buying more products locally even if it costs more, which would help keep retail alive. As I see it, if you don’t support retail then it will be replaced with…offices and luxury condos probably. If we were to replace retail with parks I wouldn’t mind that, but this laissez-faire capitalist world hates communitarianism, and still isn’t ready for that. Props to New Yorkers for protesting another selfish company. Though I’ve disliked your dirty rundown subways, perhaps you’re victims too and maybe you’re waking up to the problems I’ve always called out in your city.
