Counter-reactionaries working to staunch the wokee cultural tide

    For those of you who don't know yet, I'll be launching a website next week that should help shed a whole lot of light on Critical Social Justice. Getting excited to show you some of what I've been working in for the last few months.

    wow I had no clue, is kinda brutal knowledge:

    The Crown Act: Fighting Hair Discrimination

    We’ve all seen or heard of stories about black children being pulled out of class and black employees having their jobs placed in jeopardy over their hairstyles. Last month, for example, Texas high school student Deandre Arnold made headlines after he was suspended over his locks and told he needed to cut them before he would be allowed to graduate.

    Hillary said "Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done"

    Here's an interesting poll related to that, I think:

    Hey Andrew Cuomo! Feel the Bern, (don't fuck the poor)

    Andrew Cuomo, admittedly, is no Mario Cuomo, so the fact that his father would rise from the grave and strangle in him his crib before seeing him patch his budget hole by ripping skin off Medicaid, should not distract us from the all out assault bei

    What would Tony Soprano do?

    Legal types get all het up by run-of-the-mill art-of-the-deal:

    Holy cow! He appears to be engaging in another quid pro quo right before our eyes. I don't know what to say but HOLY COW! NY must drop its lawsuits against him if New Yorkers want Global Entry status? HOLY COW!!! HOLY COW!!!

    Mayor Pete--Intellectual heir of Gramsci...da fuque??

    Well, here is some good news!


    Turns out that Pete Buttigieg's late father Joseph (d. January, 2019) was a serious scholar whose areas of interest included James Joyce, and (wait for it....) Franz Fanon and Antonio Gramsci.



    Gramsci is the intellectual fount of Occupy Wall Street!

    Fire up the Mint--AOC is tapped for Sec/Treas, Platinum Proof Coin to follow


    I am happy to report a precognitive flash (like the one I had that Trump would win in '16)


    It's Sanders in November, and he will tap AOC to run the Treasury.  (Stephanie Kelton will be Fed Chief when Powell expires).


    Succession untidiness will be obviated by Trump's timely election night stroke upon hearing Hannity call the election for Sanders.


    I love it when a plan comes together...

    General election. No debates, maybe no election.

    As a bonus worry for freedom loving Americans distressed by the ongoing electoral chaos, more than one commentator deconstructing the primary debates has cogently argued that Trump will never subject himself to debates going into the general.

    Dental implants! (Will no prosthodontist comp Biden a set?)

    Just breezed by Biden's CNN Town Hall, and to my untutored eye, he is having a really bad time with his upper plate..


    I know they are expensive, but, shit!  You're running for President, Dude!  Ditch the 19th century technology!


    It's nothing to me, but if I were a Biden fan, I''d start a Gofundme.

    Books in Blackface

    The bookselling behemoth recently announced that their flagship Fifth Avenue location will partner with publishing giant Penguin Random House to celebrate Black History Month and highlight diversity. And if you assumed this news meant B&N planned to shine a spotlight on black authors or even books about black people, you’re wrong. Instead of focusing on the content of books, they had had a different, more Bookman-like approach:

    They put their books in blackface.

    67 Years Later, Bayard Pardoned Posthumously

    He was a chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, a crucial strategist on nonviolent tactics and an adviser to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Bayard Rustin was also openly gay. And in 1953, he was arrested for having consensual sex with men in Pasadena, Calif. The “morals charge,” which was often used to target gay people in those years, remained a stain on his record and nearly sidelined him from the movement he helped create.

    Don't complain about IOWA

    Trump's usual crowing will have cost him some votes.

    Don't give them back by emulating him. Apart from other reasons not to, such as common courtesy.

    Complaints ought to be  limited to those who have never made a mistake.

    Like me!

    NBC: John Kerry “was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid ‘the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.’”

    This is going viral among the pro-Trump set

    They see it as confirmation that the impeachment was not about anything serious, faux news, political witch hunt, kabuki show:

    Wakeup: Trump Doesn't Need a Majority

    Wakeup call: Hitler was named Chancellor after getting only 36% of the vote.

    Gottwald in Czechoslovakia pulled a coup 2 years after the Communists got 38% of the vote.

    Boris Johnson just led the UK out of the EU with only 43.6% of the vote.

    Bush claimed a "mandate" after losing with only 47.9% of the vote, going to the Supreme Court to rubber stamp the vote theft.

    Trump's Russian & other pals helped him "win" 3 Midwest states by super thin margins via voter repression & hacking, and then block the investigations.

    Relying on the 2020 results to throw Trump out? Don't.

    When a man shows you what he's made of, believe him.

    Trump doesn't need to "win" - he just needs to stay in power. His cronies will help him do exactly that.

    Danger, Will Robinson, Danger.
