    The dog park one was hilarious. In their "study" of a dog park, they observed rape culture in dog parks. They observed that Men would discourage their male dogs from humping other male dogs (clearly homophobia) but would actually encourage their male dogs to hump female dogs (clearly rape). They made a connection between rape culture in night clubs and dog parks. Here is a clip from the "author" who worked with Berghossian and Lindsey:

    You Cannot Criticize Twitter's New CEO - Karl Denninger

    Even though it kind of made him look like a salty party pooper, Karl was never fooled by Musk. He's not wrong about DeSantis either.

    Here is a terribly important summary of the past 3 years of government activity regarding C19: Post-mortem on the C19 pandemic – 6 million avoidable C19 deaths plus 36 million vaxx deaths (mostly in India from Oxford/AstraZeneca shots) = plus the odd 1.8 trillion bucks for useless masks, tests

    In round numbers – cumulative global deaths with C19 present using the “not fit for purpose” RT-PCR test were 2 million in calendar year 2020, 5.5 million in 2021 (+3.5 million) and 6.7 million in 2022 (+1.2 million from 2021 to 2022).

    What kind of moron would claim that any measures taken to address C19 have been “effective”. Certainly not 95% effective, unless you believe that without the measures, deaths with C19 present would have doubled to more than 13 million by now.

    Now, factor in that 95% of deaths also had 2-6 co-morbidities also present and the average age at time of C19 death was 1-2 years longer than average life expectancy. Then factor in that the RT-PCR test was not intended to determine infectiousness, only the presence of a guess of what the SARS-COV2 looked like.

    Also bear in mind that IVM (and HCQ) treatment protocols were proven as a safe and effective prophylactic and early to mid-stage cure by May 2020. It has no side effects unless extreme dosages are used (like those used in studies sponsored by the BMGF).

    Maybe as many as 85% of all deaths globally from C19 were preventable from May 2020 onwards.

    The decision NOT to use IVM/HCQ treatment protocols from May 2020 onwards cost around 6 million lives, globally.

    Death by healer – iatrogenic death – from Remdesivir/Midazolam+morphine, ventilators, psychological and physical torture of the elderly and infirm in medical settings, failure to treat existing and emerging health conditions (non-C19), failure to prescribe anti-biotics (WHO advice) and so on are included in C19 deaths, rather than as murders.

    ...

    So, here’s the leap based on a URF of 40 and scaled up to the global level of doses.

    36 million vaxx deaths, with India’s use of the Oxford/AstraZeneca injection responsible for 3/4 of global injection deaths - 27 million dead over two years. (12.3 m / 16.3 m x 36 m).

    Remember when the useful idiots in state media and Hollywood said this about "the unvaccinated?"

    Gov. Abbott has his problems, but Texas is actually doing something about the treasonous policies of the federal government: Texican standoff: Inside the only border spot where law is enforced

    Non-plussed by the empty threat of Title 42 expulsions in the final days of that hollowed-out policy tool, mostly Venezuelans in huge crowds in late April started surging into the Rio Grande water in numbers that have quickly reached some 10,000, pushing Brownsville into declaring a state of emergency.

    By the time I got to town on Monday to cover Title 42’s end of days, immigrants coming off buses at the Matamoros station were still storming over the river, straight into the warm embrace of President Biden’s distant Border Patrol agents to receive the mythical reward of which they had all heard: the Biden government was processing most from riverbank to American heartland within 48 hours.

    My narrated video of these mad charges noted the absence of any badged or uniformed opposition on the Texas side.

    That video of pell-mell unopposed immigrant entrances onto Texas soil evidently so rankled Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, I have been reliably told, that he finally ordered something many constituents had been pressing for since the border crisis began on Biden’s Inauguration Day.

    He put state troopers and a tactical National Guard Unit on a kind of Maginot Line of concertina wire hundreds of yards long with orders to let not even one pass.

    ...

    Down in the river, men and women carrying children and personal belongings in plastic bags also began walking waist-deep downstream also looking for an unopposed gap and didn’t find one.

    Eventually, the entire group had no choice but to either sleep on the 45-degree steep, weed infested embankment with little food or water and no shelter, or return to Mexico, which is what they all did.

    Denninger is the quintessential curmudgeon, it is good to have guys like that.

    They seem to be making this into a Thing: Mayorkas: White Supremacy the Greatest Terrorism Threat to U.S.

    Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that a “rise in white supremacy” was the United States’ greatest domestic terror threat.

    Host Jonathan Capehart asked, Today marks one year since white supremacists opened fire in a black neighborhood at the Top Supermarket in Buffalo. The president, yesterday at his commencement address for Howard University graduates, called white supremacy the major domestic terrorist threat in this country. Is that correct? ”

    Mayorkas said, “It tragically is. And the terrorism context, domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now. Individuals are driven to violence because of ideologies of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives, personal grievances. Regrettably, we have seen a rise in white supremacy. The principal under lying our work is that when one community is targeted, Jonathan, when one community is targeted, we as a country are targeted.”
    1. Where do you learn to talk like a politician?

    2. Does anybody on this board know an actual "White Supremacist"? A "White Nationalist"? If they're that big a problem, surely everybody knows at least 2 or 3.

    3. Since we don't like the government, does that make us "White Supremacists"? What does that make the government?

    On the supremacist font, Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall come to mind. They are supreme to every black guy in deadlifts, at least officially. I'm not sure how much of a threat they are. I guess maybe they are a threat to leftist black or brown or yellow or whatever color guys - if their girls ever stood close to one of these two, the late night session partners might change. I wouldn't discount this, wars have been started over such stuff. Menelaus was stronger than Paris. A white nationalist is just a nationalist, everybody is a goddamn nationalist. Does anybody really wanna give money to other nations instead of keeping it at home?

    Are you absolutely sure that Hall and Hafthor regard themselves as supreme over the other races? Or just over the other strongmen?

    But really, now, don't go to college. There are better ways to learn things.

    1. Probably an expensive law school.

    2. I knew a few people who'd probably fit that description prior to the rise of the wokeness. They ironically all lined themselves up with the woke shit because they saw it as a way to be able to bully people from a position of moral superiority. They completely pretend they didn't once liberally drop n-bombs or constantly say white supremacist shit, or advocate beating women into submission. The people I know who are white supremacists now became that way as a contrarian reaction to the woke shit, and mostly just like to say white supremacist shit on the internet because it runs counter to that stuff. It's kind of like how counter culture started to half-assedly worship Satan as a fuck you to authoritarian christian fundamentalists years ago.

    3. That's the inference they are trying to make, yes. They make sure to mention the two in the same breath to lump the two together. Anyone with a handful of common sense would notice this, but most of their supporters eat it up because they love being reassured their ideological opponents are actually Satan himself.
