• The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)
  • Your beloved Boot here with a confession. The Boot tangled its laces and failed to properly set up the new Comrade user title. Thanks to the kind intercession of Emperor Tippy this failure has been corrected and the new user title is now actually on sale to everybody.

What atrocities? Being even more annoying on Tumblr? Or do even these clowns terrify you now?

In the old days, we used to fight communist geurillas with guns. Now are we going to shiver and cry over old men and women on twitter? Is that what we have been reduced to?
....You are aware that Antifa have actually killed people, right?

And do you remember Ashli Babbit?


The (historically justified) worry, is that these are precursors of much worse things to come.

You are aware that Antifa are just some tiny bunch of losers, right? We used to fight Maoist geurilla armies in the old days.
As for that woman, she died to cops. She deserved it for flouting Authority. It is not in a dog's place to bite its master's hand. That only gets you more "Revolutionaries" that those weaklings in Washington and New York egg into committing the worst of crimes. Or have you forgotten 1917?

If these little girls and beardless boys scare someone, that someone should stay at home and start wearing skirts. Real patriots will walk out, their heads high and their pride untouched.

So, you'd be fine if an officer shot you for jaywalking? You'd say that you deserved being killed for biting the master's hand?

Or have you not actually looked into the events around her death?


As to Antifa, by themselves they're just a group of (mostly) lightweight thugs. The problem is that they have the institutional backing of the Democratic political establishment. They're basically only ever active in Democrat-controlled areas, where the Dems refuse to charge and convict them, or only do so in the most extreme cases, and actively push for people who defend themselves to have the book thrown at them.

If it weren't for the political protection that they enjoy, Antifa would have been crushed last year.

Except an officer would never do that, because I am not defying authority. She dared enter the Capitol of the US and breach the sanctum, and got duly punished for it. You can't let the people start thinking they can do whatever they like, or nmext they start doing "People's Courts" and you've got a revolution on your hand.

Antifa is irrelevant. They couldn't fight a puppy without crying and posting it on their insta as some great feat of badassery.

I'm sorry, have you not been paying attention? Antifa have destroyed property, ruined lives, even outright killed people; and you think they're irrelevant? They've been allowed to "do whatever they like" for well over an entire year now; to the point where the cops will arrest you if you try to defend yourself when they attack you.



You sound like an authoritarian.
We probably wouldn't be in the mess we're in if the vast majority of Americans didn't tacitly approve of authoritarianism; only differing on whom they want to be in charge.

Salami tactic.Commies use it to take over East European countries after WW2.Or,if you want another idea - slowly boiling frog.
They want us to think that they are old man on twitter,so we do nothing till we find ourselwes in gulag.
And there would be too late then.

They're already reaching beyond Twitter, they're about the force every business in the country to require their employees take medications they may not need. That's only one step.

They're comparing us to AQ and the Taliban. You know what you do to those kinds of enemies? You kill them.

They're escalating a little more with each move.

I don't give a fuck about Twitter.

More like gangly brats on social media. And no, they just took the slavic lands by force. Salami tactics is an entirely different thing.

Antifa is just the street thugs. The ones forcing businesses to kneel are those urban, latte liberal types. Money speaks to money, remember.

Sadly everyone, there hasn't been any progress announced on the FBI's investigation in who could've hacked MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid's blog where the hacker made heinously homophoic and other offensive comments.


The increased amount of attention did help surface some other claims Joy Ann Reid made however such as the Star MSNBC's hosts background as a 9-11 Truther and Conspiracy Theorist have surfaced even those these comments were made sooooo long ago... like 10-15 years ago. :p


Probably the work of the same hackers of course...

That's only because Journalists are having affairs with Politicians so won't actually admit to having sex.
That sex gets them "off the record" information. Instead of money (like what an honest prostitute gets) they sometimes get a story they can turn into money.

EDIT: Unless you're so socially inept you can't get sex in any other way you aren't really paying a prostitute for sex. You're paying the prostitute to be discrete and pretend they didn't have sex with you afterwards.

Here's an excellent example of cringe journalism in newsmedia. Just look at these headlines. In theory... all of these services should be pretty bland and vanilla. First we'll start with the BBC.


Seems fine to me.

And here's NPR, a public news company in the United States and one of the closest equivalents you can find to the BBC.


Still not too bad, though some may or may not like the mention of the "faltering #Metoo movement."

Now let's check on the News Wire services. Keep in mind, a news wire service should be as close as possible to NEWS READING.


Look at Reuters (my favorite news wire service. It manages to relay the headline and include the mention of #MeToo without any sort of embellishment or bias.

Now lets look at AP News or the Associated Press which unlike Reuters, is a news service based on the excellent of mainstream American journalists and should be basically identical to Reuters in bias.


Oh yeah, that's totally a NPOV take. Maybe "China Rules For Sex Crimes" would be a bit more non-biased.

Now keep in mind, what I'm talking about here has no bearing on the validity of the case or issue being discussed here. Maybe it was a shit decision, maybe not, but I'm posting it here just to illustrate... the AP News is a news wire service but it's complete and utter shit.

Reuters is my news wire of choice. Is it perfect? NOPE. Is it the best when it comes to presenting news in some sort of NPOV? I tend to think so.

Maybe they are after the views of sexists? Because I sure would be happy with judges ruling against #metoo rape-accusations.
Here's a problem judges face when dealing with rape allegations: it's really hard to to determine if the allegations are true when collaborating witnesses or medical evidence saying "yup, she was raped and he did it" isn't available and it usually isn't available.

A (sadly deceased) cousin of mine had a story about a gal getting dumped on her doorstep in the middle of the night wearing nothing but a t-shirt and pair of shoes. The gal had absolutely no memory of how she wound up at my cousin's home.
