    We can point to the exceptions among Jews, blacks, Latinos, or whoever, as if they will one day magically be "convinced" en masse, but fundamentally this has always been an ethnic culture war, and the "white individualists" will continue to lose until they accept this and fight it as such. Like Subby said a while back, if someone pulls a knife on you, you're in a knife fight whether you like it or not. Wishful thinking, desires to be agreeable, and egalitarian fantasies aren't going to make the knife magically disappear, no matter how much you wish it would.
    I'm trying to use the adjective "Oikophobic" to describe people more often. It popped up a while back and everyone agreed that it was an effective, persuasive term to call people and universally agreed to not use it.

    How about a new entry in the "Why Are You Still There" category: Chicago Sues Glock Over Switch Proliferation

    The city argues that Glock can fix the problem but refuses to do so. It wants the company to cease Glock sales to Chicagoans and to pony up for the alleged damages it’s caused.

    Mayor Brandon Johnson, a member of the Bloomberg-funded Mayors Against Illegal Guns, expressed his concern in a press release obtained by GunsAmerica.

    “Selling firearms that can so easily be converted into automatic weapons makes heinous acts even more deadly, so we are doing everything we can in collaboration with others committed to ending gun violence to hold Glock accountable for putting profits over public safety,” Johnson said.

    Eric Tirschwell, executive director of Everytown Law, piled on.

    “Right now, anyone in the United States with $20 and a screwdriver can convert their Glock pistol into an illegal machine gun in just a few minutes,” said Tirschwell.

Everyone is getting sick and fucking tired of this shit, and I don't just mean anons on the internet.
    I failed; I intended to post the one minute segment and not the entire interview.
    Rabbi call Candace Owens an antisemite for using the term "hag"

    It came on the heels of this: UNHINGED! Michael Jackson’s “Rabbi” Wants to Bankrupt Me
    rabbi shmuley boteach (wealthy purveyor of sex toys and pornographic material) threatens to bankrupt Candace Owens.

    The real question is this: Is it possible for Black people to be anti-semitic?
    In my opinion, it is not; they are an oppressed class, having no systemic power, so it is not possible for a Black person to be anti-semitic.

    Since it is clear that Candace Owens is not being anti-semitic, these videos are proof of racist, hateful and unlawful speech from racially privileged jewish rabbis directed at the victim, Candace Owens.

    I have had heard of Oikophobia before, but completely forgot what it was when reading your comment. It would be good to have a word to describe this, but I think Oikophobia didn't catch on because it's not intuitive, and frankly it's just kind of an ugly sounding word. We need to coin something better.

    Very true. Maybe we could even select for the numerate quality by requiring that to have the right to vote, you must be a land owner.

    I live surrounded by vast herds of oblate bloviating ultracrepidarian oikophobic misanthropic blue-haired woolly gynoceros.

    Regarding the Moscow terrorist attack at Crocus City Hall Concert Hall:

    Man this is really awful and I'm sending condolences to the family and friends of those who were killed or injured! My daughter goes to dance competitions at that facility all the time, and her coach was even there last night (he's OK but all we know for now from him is that it was "an awful nightmare").

    Who Is Behind The Bloody Terrorist Attack In Moscow? Military Summary And Analysis For 2024.03.23 - YouTube
    The Military Summary Channel says that a guy physically fought the terrorist who was guarding the door and shooting people trying to escape, wrested his weapon away from him, and pistol-whipped him until he fell unconscious for a few minutes - that actor was caught. Also says many who were killed were found in bathrooms and hallways, where they were probably hiding out and ended up succumbing to smoke poisoning (or perhaps that was in a different vid). I don't have the timestamp handy, sorry, but it's a short video, and the guy for all of his videos shows 'geolocated' videos so if you watch the whole thing you'll see a bunch of relevant videos all conveniently in one spot. His evening videos post around 11:30 p.m. Moscow time (3:30p.m. EDT) so he'll probably have more relevant updates then.

    Putin says Moscow attackers were ?trying to flee to Ukraine? - YouTube
    At 0:45 President Putin in his address says preliminary investigations show a 'safe corridor' was in place in Ukraine at border crossings for these guys.

    Who knows how accurate that is but my first thought was that there are international borders that are closer than Ukraine's, so why was Ukraine, specifically, chosen for escape?

    Another vid stated that the posts allegedly from ISIS claiming responsibility used old templates that ISIS no longer even uses for press releases, so all the ISIS chatter is probably #FakeNews.

    I know you guys (we) get mass shootings all the time, but the last big attack like this was the Beslan theater 20 years ago, followed in size by Domodedovo airport in 2011 (security checks there are impeccable yet still convenient now) and then the Moscow Metro in 2010. So the societal and cultural repercussions from this will probably be huge, regardless of whether it's Ukraine and the West trying to turn the cosmopolitan Muscovites against President Putin or the hardliner Russians in government seizing the opportunity the Ukrainians gave them to finally take off the kids' gloves in regards to the Special Military Operation.

    I expected the story that the military summary channel gave about the Good Samaritan bashing in the terrorist's skull because my immediate comment to my wife in the morning after my wife asked if I'd heard the news yet was something similar. The Russians are realist and cynical and too active to let something like the Bataclan attack take place, where the musician recounted that a Western women stood frozen in panic and was ultimately shot despite a fence that could have been jumped with an escape path being literally meters away. I would imagine that culturally they'd be more like the concertgoers in the Las Vegas attack, where guys were making cover for women to escape. So, yeah, if accurate, hopefully we hear more soon about based pistol-whipping Russian dude in the future.

    The FDA Settled With Us Because They Knew They Were Going To Lose

    In my book, The War on Ivermectin, Chapter 33 is called “The Horse Dewormer PR Campaign.” I invite you to see this previous post where I detail the campaign’s highly coordinated and sequentially timed actions between the FDA, CDC, AMA, APHA and corporate controlled media (i.e. late night hosts, news broadcasts, newspapers etc). Clearly, the goal of the campaign was to convince the public that ivermectin was a dangerous and ineffective horse dewormer.

    In the wake of that campaign, pharmacies stopped filling valid, legal prescriptions and hospitals removed ivermectin from their formularies. Never had an FDA approved drug, one of the (if not the) safest prescribed medications in history ever been vilified or restricted to this extent. Just like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin had to be stopped.

    The FDA’s role in that campaign started with the posting of the below tweet on August 21, 2021, a week after the report on the below left came out, showing a massive rise in ivermectin prescriptions in the U.S during the deadly Delta wave.
    Now, what about the dead people? Will the FDA do time?

    You'd think the bar would be just a tad higher than managing not to die for 18 years.

    In a sane world there would at least be some sort of aptitude test involved and wait times for people who just moved... before they can ruin local politics.

    Or even Heinlein's solution from Starship Troopers.
