facebook-attack

Facebook is now censoring what the Nazis did, what they admitted to, and what current-day Nazis are also doing. 

My account has been repeatedly frozen for basic modern History 101 stuff. The brain-dead morons who control content there are essentially helping the rise of fascism, whether through ignorance or through intent.

My money is on them being some of the most stupid individuals you’re likely to meet, badly programmed human robots.

So, now the rise of fascism is off-limits there. You will be directly attacked, your account frozen, and then kicked off permanently for basically telling people what they should have learned in high school.

The American president has over 6,000 lies chronicled, many of them repetitive and belligerent attacks on groups. That is the Big Lie principle, something that is verboten at Zuckerberg’s little empire of shitheads.

A massive list of ex-friends popped up simultaneously, from Facebook Purity. It looks like FB purged more than a hundred people from my account simultaneously as it suspended it. The odds of so many all deciding to unfriend me at the same moment makes it implausible. This happened the first time too, but I didn’t bother mentioning it.

That website attacks dissidents, in this case, dissidents fighting against Naziism and for the truth. That is a major fucking problem.

Unsane

I rejected this at first because it’s a gimmick movie: filmed on IPhones. Yawn. There’s a reason phones are for making calls and cinema cameras make moving images. Soderbergh makes stupid calls sometimes. It’s heavily color graded on crappy source footage, and so the entire movie takes you out of the movie.

The story deserved a better, more serious, approach. A decent thriller, decent acting, the Philistines may forget about the crap footage and just watch.

Now here’s a stylized movie-movie, shot on real cameras. Imagine. I might have reviewed it in its own post, but I’m so lazy.

Hotel Artemis has that ultra-violent over-the-top action. None of the characters are all that likable. The sleaze is a tad off-putting. As a curiosity it stands up, contained in one location and populated by lowlife murderers at each others’ throats.

History and reality are now banned at Facebook. My account is in lockdown for telling people what the Nazis did and how the ideas are relevant to today’s political climate.

Reality is against their “Community Standards.” Ponder that. It’s a community of morons for the most part, and their future looks even more ignorant and blinkered.

Trump and Kavanaugh are the real victims, don’t you know? 

I just had a disgusting bout with a real-world person, over Facebook. Dr. Ford is a “bitch” who definitely “lied” in a Democrat plot to deny Republicans a court seat.

That’s the talking point going around.

When you bring up a dozen perjuries under oath (1, 2), that’s ignored. When you bring up 2,400 law professors protesting Kavanaugh, that’s ignored.

Also ignored is the dean of Yale law school, Kavanaugh’s old haunt, who said:

“[Kavanaugh’s] very presence will undermine the court’s claim to legitimacy; it will damage the nation’s commitment to the rule of law. It will be an American tragedy.”

The right-wing smear machine has also fabricated completely unsourced hit pieces against Dr. Ford. It’s all about Dr. Ford and nothing about Kavanaugh’s total unfitness for the position.

Obama’s Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, was actually denied a seat by an actual Republican plot in the Senate to refuse to confirm him under any circumstances. These ignorant bobbing heads are beyond hypocrisy since they don’t know enough about any of the subjects to contradict themselves knowingly.

Now they claim Kavanaugh is the victim of “liberal” death threats. Meanwhile, Dr. Ford had to move out of her house for actual death threats. Republicans are through-the-looking-glass, behaving like a Brown Shirt mob at every level from Trump on down. They are completely impervious to facts and logic, and they are, indeed, proudly armed and dangerous.

I’m not a big fan of Trevor Noah, but this observation on Republican weaponizing of “victimhood” should send chills down your spine. It is the Nazi game plan. White nationalists are the victims in Nazi ideology, and they’re defending their race, nation, state, values, or what have you, as they perpetrate any number of atrocities against outsiders.

A Star is Born – My Review

Lady Gaga is beyond talented. Now she may be up for an Oscar, with a performance that few, if any, could have pulled off. The ladies cried in a packed house on a Tuesday night. I was stuck in the first row.

I needed to feel something, and the film delivered. You can tell it was directed by an actor, because so many shots are close-ups isolating them and framing out ten-thousand spectators. They spared no expense with the venues and the production.

I’ve always liked Gaga. The instant you hear her voice you know something’s happening. It’s so strong and distinct. Her presence commands attention as soon as she opens her mouth.

Now that she’s shown her vulnerable side, her origins, her natural hair and face, it’s like we instantly know her better. The role is tailor made for her to grow and shine. But there’s a dark side…

cortez-mccain

Get out of here, you lowlife scum!”

-Sen. John McCain to anti-war protesters,

January 29, 2015

by Joe Giambrone

One unexpected revelation, that John McCain’s death has shown us, is that we completely misjudged some notable players on the national stage. Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and even Audrey Denney in Northern California have praised the serial warmonger as some kind of national treasure. Real progressives, on the ground, expect those people to fight against John McCain’s imperial agenda of mass murder for mass profits.

sanders-mccain

What do these representatives stand for in reality? When did imperial wars of aggression become the norm and beyond criticism? What alternatives do we now have in America to this Nazi-styled, industrial-scale barbarism and an ongoing domestic propaganda victory, which Goebbels would have been proud of concocting? Belligerence is now heroism.

denney-mccain

(So did Joseph Stalin, Audrey.)

The right-wing knew for years that McCain was on his way out, and they planned their massive PR offensive, which still unfolds all around us. It’s a sickening nationalism with a fake martyr who isn’t supposed to be criticized.

For fifty years, John McCain was elevated by the right-wing because of his victim status. Being a captured prisoner of war made him a solid, reliable commodity. His “patriotism” was beyond question. This allowed McCain, or “McNasty” as he was known to his military peers, to rise through the ranks and become one of the most malignant politicians of our lives, selling war after war, supporting any and all blood-drenched tyrants, terrorists, or Nazis who would do business with America. McCain’s agenda was the problem, the main problem in the world today. Millions of innocent civilians perished in part due to John McCain’s tireless efforts to launch more US wars of aggression, both overt and covert.

Your Empire at Work

Empires persist because of several principles which aren’t taught in American K-12 schools. No public school, to my knowledge, dares call America an empire at all, despite it keeping military bases and active soldiers in the overwhelming majority of foreign lands on this planet. It is an invisible empire then, and the less the general public knows about it the easier it is to manage. Good guys and bad guys are assigned on the fly, minor bit parts to sell the latest news cycle, nothing more. Often the good guys pop up later as bad guys or vice-versa.

Osama bin Laden in 1993 – “Good” Guy?

One principle that is obvious and common to every empire since Rome is “bread and circuses.” The domestic population is kept at a slightly elevated standard of living–that’s the bread–but distracted with entertainment as much as possible, a devil’s bargain. Your morals for a wide-screen TV, now shut up and watch it. The people therefore have something to lose, and they aren’t educated enough about current global situations to mount any kind of organized challenge to the powers that be. That’s the game.

Opportunity cost is the phenomenon that prompts an empire to promote distraction and entertainment. If the people spend their lives watching football, television, or video games, or just fighting with each other over race and religion, then they are not learning about flash points across the globe. The average citizen cannot do both. Few Americans today could locate Syria on a blank map, despite it being the target of US belligerence since at least 2011.

A second principle of running an empire is to outsource your dirty work to your vassals, your “friends.” This is about creating a false perception of ethics and morals. Your foreign henchmen serve as proxies to enforce your will on the periphery. You ship them high-tech arms, intelligence, money if need be, in order to exercise control beyond your own borders. Thus, America is in bed with the leaders of countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Uzbekistan, Israel, and too many “human rights” abusers to list.

“Progressive” Voices

The problem with political labels is that they don’t actually mean much. They cover a wide range of people, views, and agendas.

In the context of this article, we see “Progressive” voices supporting an agenda of widespread atrocities against foreign lands which they would never–in a million years–condone against people at home. There’s a rift, a dichotomy, a split-personality disorder of sorts. What we do to them versus what we do to us, that’s the distinction. The domestic population is slightly elevated, more important, deserving of some human rights vs. their enemies around the world, who are fair game.

So, what can we expect from the most “Progressive” Democratic Party options alive today? They have endorsed McCain without qualifying in any way the immoral criminality of his lifelong agenda of war and more war. No recollection of his Beach Boys parody, “Bomb bomb Iran.” Certainly no talk of his meeting with Al Qaeda and other Jihadist elements in both Libya and Syria! His selling Jihad as “freedom” on US television. Nothing about his supporting the ranting, raving neo-Nazis in Ukraine, nor the violent illegal coup there, which McCain was a part of.

mccain-alnusra-1

Jihadist kidnappers meet with US senator McCain, exposed in Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star.

Bernie Sanders voted to bomb Serbia in 1999 and to invade Afghanistan in 2001. It was well known that the Taliban had offered to turn over Osama bin Laden to a legitimate international court if evidence was produced to implicate him in the 9/11 attacks. Instead of pursuing this diplomatic solution, it was instead the start of an endless war that continues to this day, the longest war in America’s history. Sanders cast a vote in favor of the attack and against a peaceful diplomatic solution, against justice.

Bernie Sanders also supported:

Israeli onslaughts against the Gaza Strip, most recently the savage bombardment of July-August 2014 which killed nearly 2,000 Palestinians, including more than 500 children. At an August 2014 town hall meeting, Sanders notoriously demanded that audience members “shut up” when they questioned his support for Israel’s criminal actions.”

Further, Bernie Sanders was right on John McCain’s side in backing the 2014 fascist coup in Ukraine. “The entire world has got to stand up to Putin,” he argued, ignoring that US/EU support to a completely undemocratic seizure of power in Ukraine prompted the Russian response. So who was the real aggressor?

Are these new “Progressive” kids on the block more of the same? Did we get fooled again? With the country lurching toward a Robber Baron kakistocracy, these alternatives may seem like rays of sunshine. Perhaps they are, but the devil is in the details.

How many more wars, “Progressives?” How many?
