Reading "conspiracy non-fiction" novels about America always leads to the conclusion, the ever-scathing and cruel conclusion, that this country exists to trade in drugs, and to addict its people to them
Reading about the suspicious deaths of journalists in this country leads to one to read about Gary Webb and Danny Casolaro. I knew about Gary, but hadn't heard about Danny. Both intrepid white male journalists who broke major stories, both "suicided" by who-knows-who, they are two pieces of a larger puzzle, but two big puzzle pieces in themselves
Drug-running in the US has conclusively been done with the collusion of the CIA ( I mean, they even got in the way of the DEA doing its job) I mean, how else could so much drug get into this country? It has to be an inside job. And you have the related scandal of Iran-Contra, which to this day doesn't provoke a lot of reaction from everyday citizens, but that opioid crisis THO, it sure is a shame...
Gary Webb released his "Dark Alliance" series in 1996, detailing how the CIA was helping to smuggle drugs into the US to help the Contras in Nicaragua gain money and weapons in their fight against communism. I remember when this came out, it was actually big news, and I have a vivid memory of discussing this topic one afternoon with college classmates who summarily dismissed it with the good 'ol true believer slogan of "my government would never do such a thing"
Other people's governments do that thing, not ours
After the news media retracted their initial support for his brilliant piece, (because the press is "free" and "indispensable" doncha know?) and his own paper, the San Jose Mercury News, who published the series, turned against him, he persisted in investigating the story because well, that's what any good, sincere investigate journalist would do
He was killed in 2004, a case of being "suicided" but if you believe the official narrative, he committed suicide with two gunshots to the head
the two-party system sells drugs
I wish Gary and Danny had met up, it would have been a dream team: they would have made connections with each other, because there was overlap between their investigations
Danny's investigation was also touching upon Iran Contra and its connection to "the Octopus", an entity like out of a James Bond film focusing on the Music Corporation of America and drug-dealing embedded within businesses you wouldn't think would deal in drugs; CIA involvement was the bulk of Webb's investigations.
What their collaboration might have really brought to light is how both major political parties in this country collaborated in making this country the drug-soaked cesspool that it is, because between Iran-Contra, flooding Los Angeles with drugs, and Barry Seals' drug running in the 80's and 90's in Mena, Arkansas, you have drug activity that spans several Presidential administrations, both Republican and Democrat
And how could our leaders not have known???
making the chinese into drug addicts
The founding fathers, I am SURE, wanted to participate in the drug trade that the British East India Company had built up and monopolized in order to gain silver to trade with China, because they eventually entered the opium trade and became quite prominent in it after gaining independence from Great Britain
But to bankrupt China, and to make it a land of drug addicts, is exactly what the British did to the Chinese in the 18th century, all to correct "a trade imbalance". I hardly ever heard about "the Opium wars" in high school, it would have been kind of important to know, about as important as slavery and the conquest of the Indigenous peoples, but okay...
what is the difference between these two different "wars on drugs"?
While the US "war on drugs", involves picking on small time users with small amounts of product ( mostly marijuana users) and avoiding going after bigger dealers ( and even helping them along, as the CIA has done for many years), stigmatizing drug users, and making their lives difficult, you have remarkably different and more effective drug policies in countries like the Philippines and Portugal
Both are unique, yet I find them both more sincere, and more effective, in their own ways
In Portugal, they decided not to punish drug users, but to try to help them reintegrate back into society
They decriminalized drugs in 2000 and gave former drug users, after helpful stints in rehab, job opportunities galore
They found a lot of success, with drug use and overdoses declining rapidly
And I always say, punishing people to make them change ( i.e. weight loss) doesn't really cut to the heart of the matter, and makes people cling to their vices more, in hopes of gaining comfort from the abuse
An anti-drug initiative should be a good deal prevention as well as cure, but in the United States, pharmaceutical companies (like Purdue Pharmaceuticals, owned by the wealthy Sackler Family) have addicted thousands of people to heroin though their gateway pharmaceuticals
I remember spraining my ankle very badly a few years ago and the nurse being rudely adamant that I take the Vicodin the ER doctor had prescribed
And I continued to say NO NO NO
I could take the pain, but I didn't know if I could take addiction
Even after a recent surgery, I still wouldn't take pain medication, and the surgeon this time, didn't push it because I didn't really need it
People should have known that this could have happened, that so many people could be addicted to opiates this way, through innocent sports injuries or surgeries, and I'm sure someone knew, because someone always knows<sup>TM</sup>, and you have in the historical record the addiction of hordes of people in China ( with whom we associate opium addiction, not knowing that it was white people who brought it to them from India, and not vice versa, kind of like how scalping was also started by whites in this country, and then adopted by the Indigenous peoples)
*Now we know*, but it's too late for so many
In the States, it's about punishing "the little people" who have already started what they can't already stop
And then they are punished further, when it's hard to get a job, and it's hard to integrate back into society
(It's become a trend in recent TV show episodes I've noticed to insist that rehab doesn't work, and that people just keep going back to it)
Criminalizing them creates crime. While Prohibition may have reduced the total number of people who actually imbibed alcohol, it increased crime and it increased the number of people who died of alcohol overdose or abuse, because the US government itself was poisoning boot leg alcohol to deter consumption ( yeah, a lot of people don't know that, but there is a very good book on the subject, entitled "The Poisoners Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York" by Deborah Blum) I had not ever heard of that either
Now Duterte. Well, Duterte recognizes that drug dealers are dealers of death and bullies of the streets, and because he has the power, he is actually going to do something about it, so he threatens to murder them
And while this method my be lacking in other ways, it is certainly not lacking in effectiveness or sincerity, unlike the fake outrage we see from politicians in the US, and a lot of people in the Philippines approve
rat experiments and tobacco companies
Does telling people that something they do could kill them keep them from doing it?
No, and tobacco companies knew this
They didn't care that their products would have labels trying to deter people from using them
They knew that people don't care about the shit
Psychologically, people would RATHER DIE then do something embarrassing, or humiliating, or totally uncool
(That, and they knew they had big markets in Eastern Europe and Asia which would compensate for any dwindling demand in the West, kind of like what Nike just did with its Colin Kaepernick ad campaign )
And for the longest time, because they were so heavily promoted in films and other media, smoking was cool. Drug use is totally glamorized in Hollywood as well
All the "cool people" do drugs, THE WEALTHY, artists can't think and create without them, all these cool actors in these cool, subversive movies do them
All the rock stars
All those songs about this way of life
Rat experiments done in the 70's showed that when all the requirements for happiness were fulfilled for test subjects, they were not interested in the drug laced water they had at their disposal
This may mean that for many people, (if we extrapolate to people), the emptiness of their lives instigates and maintains their addictions
I'm sure that is a big part of it
I'm sure it's why many people overeat
It's all very complex, and must be handled with complexity
Not a broad, scathing sword ( and especially not a hypocritical one)
The biggest irony to me though, is that for something touted as being so cool, they're really not very cool at all
They're actually very status quo, very mainstream
They don't make you an individual
Most people I have known in my life have been on some kind of psychiatric drug, whether it be legal or illegal, prescribed or not prescribed
I am like, the only person of my own kind, where I am, in this country, that I have been able to hang out with, because everyone else wants to do this shit, and to me, it's just so uninteresting (cigarettes were at least interesting, but I had to really struggle to smoke those, and only did because they seemed cool and I am also do not like not being in control, and drugs make you lose control)
And I'm not saying I am better than other people, because I have my own flaws, and my own addictions, but they are thankfully not to drugs or alcohol
Drugs actually make you very boring, because when you want to do cool stuff like make soap from scratch and other cool crafts, all your friends wanna do is get high ( and this actually happened to me, and I had to wait two hours before they finally decided not to make soap anymore after having gotten high)
Anyone and their mother can do drugs
It doesn't require special skills
And if your life is not in the mud, or you are not a schizophrenic, you really don't need them as a crutch ( you probably don't even need them then either)
You are fueling imperialism and corporatism and assassination and corruption when you indulge in drugs
The US anti-drug campaigns of the eighties (and even now, like the anti-smoking campaigns which we all know are useless, and the tobacco companies knew this before you) basically promoted drug use with their stale, lackadaisical message
When something is trendy and cool, no amount of diseased, ailing TV actors marching in lockstep in scary commercials is gonna deter people from doing it
The only way to deter people from doing something is to make it uncool, to make it something only poor people do, you know like riding the RTA; I mean, when poor people do it, nobody wants to do it
Pumpy Malhuesen despises punctuation
A compendium of "great men"
ALSO, they're not dictators
that's just a good 'ol nonsensical americanism for "hated enemy who fucks up our shit"
i can't help it if they happen to be men!
it doesn't get better than this -
(but I'll name a few more)
I love mother fuckers who say what they mean and do what they say
( he really speaks to my rage - i harbor A LOT of rage)
he stands up to the US
he'll buy his submarines and shit where ever the hell he damn well pleases
this guy puts the US drug war TO SHAME
(so does portugal, but that's a different story)
shouldn't tolerate drug dealers and drug pushers
these people ruin OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES
PEOPLE ARE DEAD because of these fucks
and the United States government encourages them and PROVIDES THEM THEIR SUPPLY
NOT a dictator, but i live in america, where america's enemies are *dictators*
i like people who stand up to the US
this guy makes it that the US can't just do what it wants all over the world
sanctions? you mean you're not gonna send us your crappy shit?
he also kinda looks like the lead singer of the eighties' band Mister Mister
(LOVE Mister Mister)
if there should be any conspiracy theories, you should include the one about how Putin had been moonlighting as the lead singer of Mister Mister in the eighties and influenced me when i was just a wee little impressionable kid to worship him in my bitter old age
Qaddafi, is the fortune teller
he told us all your futures, and you didn't listen to him
he promised the US would kill you
and they did
saw this already; but it's THAT GOOD
he regularly sprays his own people with nasty chemicals because he's *insane*
and he continues to defy all logic and outcomes and has enacted upon us all
god, i hope he's made of teflon, because the US and israel are gonna take another crack at him
who knows what he's up to?
he is so many things
to so many people
just deflect and project your hopes and dreams, or your vilest, dread notions upon him
he is the mirror who reflects back at you
he is anything you want him to be
he can take it
about him, i question what you don't question,
and don't question what you get all phony-hysterical about
(and if you REALLY ARE getting hysterical, i don't even know what to say)
he's shaken up the system, and that's what i voted for
i couldn't ask for much more
because the system won't give it
it gives a few crumbs here and there:
the US empire is declining: what can i say? people are standing up to it
these are some guys who do it ( did it)
( i CAN say this: I love men)
not in the stupid Kim Gordon nineties male-worship kind of way
in the way of GOD YOU'RE HOT
do that little dance for me
(what happened to this guy? he was fucking brilliant not being sarcastic )
this song is sooo good
(I love him tooooo)
EDITOR'S NOTE: You know, this happened with our article last month with Tara McCarthy - we ask the burning question "what has happened to this person?" and there they go, appearing on Twitter, or in Baked's case, he just released a new video on Youtube...go figure
This is a slightly modified version of a version which appeared on Pumpy Malheusen's critical news and events blog, blametheoppressor.com
I am fascinated with the alt-right ( but maybe not anymore)
I have been binging on this fascination ever since the Presidential campaign, so this would be about two years now ( two incredible years since that incredible presidential upset that RAWKED THE WORLD)
Night and day watching videos, devouring books and articles, watching Murdoch Murdoch and observing fascinated and stalking the internet for snippets of information about the major players
Laughing at their absurdity, and admiring their bravery
Getting excited at the prospect of seeing rabid women-hating neon-nazi Andrew Anglin debate creepy "Liberalist" skeptic Sargon of Akad on the Youtube show "Warski Live" and finding it funny when Richard Spencer on another episode called creepy Sargon DUMB ( "I don't think you are as smart as you think you are Sargon"); it was like watching meaningless but edgy political wrestling.
Dousing my brain in the salty, fatty, greasy, confit of novel political fringe theory, watching people literally risk their livelihoods for these incredible beliefs of white male supremacy and all-female subjugation, watching these vanity debates of arrogant, self-designated political charlatans, acting like their oppressive visions of the future are legitimate plans for discussion, and they should be the ones discussing them
And I think they should, anyone really should
I've been feeling burnout
and I think it's a big part due to the waning importance of this trend that-was-sort-of-my-hobby
The fascination has been receding, along with the heat the movement itself had originally maintained. Like every fad or trend, the luster begins to fade, and you realize you have been binging on some tasty one-note junk food for a bit too long
It has also started to make me depressed, and to be coloring my vision of the world, and god damn it, I'm not Angela Nagle ( who wrote the book "Kill All Normies" dissecting the Alt-Right ) getting paid to read 4chan all day
NO ONE is paying me to read 4chan all day
And it's making me SAD
So as fascinating as this all has been, it is coming to an end, and when these kinds of "ends" occur, I am always disappointed and confused Now I have to struggle to wonder what will take its' place? What will fascinate me next? What will fill the void, maintain the high, keep the fire burning? What's something new I can learn about? (Cheerleading?) And wasn't that shit I was just so excited about learning about supposed to answer all my questions and satisfy my lust for meaning for time-all-eternity???
Far left anti-capitalist politics didn't do it twenty years ago, and alt-right politics won't do it today ( not that I am alt-right, I am decidedly leftist) but in terms of authenticity and trend-making, they are pretty similar; for one, they are both anti-globalization!
The Alt Right has also come to an end for some of its once brightest stars ( as well as Richard Spencer's college speaking tours, which he resignedly admitted in one video that his side is "just not willing to do what Antifa is willing to do" which is all too ironic for me, but whatever )
People like Millenial Woes disappeared ( then reappeared unfortunately) and others like Milo Yiannopoulos (remember what a big deal he used to be???) and Baked Alaska ( I really liked his music videos, he had talent), seemed to have disappeared for good. Jean Francois Gariepy and Andy Warski broke up, and then JF had trouble keeping co-hosts on his new Youtube show "The Public Space" ( but he still has his show). Internet "bloodsports" still rages on, but with an attenuated flame
I enjoyed the ladies of the Alt-right, and still enjoy some of them to this day. For instance, Lauren Southern interviewed Alexander Dugin recently (which is kind of interesting) , and Lana Lokteff still makes interesting videos as she maintains the reigns at Red Ice. Again, I don't agree with white nationalist aims, but fringe politics are fascinating and educational, and I do think it is pretty brave to go against the tidal grain of mainstream society. But as impressed as I was with their spirit last year, the inherent despicability of their basic message is finally seeping through the sandwich wrapper and tainting my food. It had been blaring through all this time, but it got somewhat submerged in the novelty-of-it-all: women are secondary subhumans to men who should just bear kids and be naked in the kitchen ( or whatever the trope is)
The irony of outspoken women clamoring for their own oppression is not lost on the likes of Lana Lokteff or Lauren Southern ( whom I consider to also be alt-right, but a lesser version, not quite alt-"lite") . They are quick to say that if the married, child-full life is not yet their domain, it will be some time in the future, inevitably and undeniably, and if they are currently mothers, that the situation in the world, with all this feminism, and all this crap, is just too dire for them to remain silent on the sidelines ( honestly, they remind me of anarcho-primitivists who use technology to promote anti-technology, but what are you gonna do? I don't judge, and as a semi-luddite myself, I understand the contradictions)
Tara McCarthy used to have her own shows on Youtube, and then she started collaborating with Brittany Pettibone ( whose book "Hatred Day" I'd like to review one day , when I get around to reading it) doing the show "Virtue of the West". She was so unnervingly soft spoken, but the things she would say were decidedly pretty harsh, racist suggestions for how to live in the world, and how racist the world should be.
She was a co-host on "This Week on the Alt-Right" , and then suddenly left to work on "other projects", but since she made big news several months ago complaining about alt-right men giving her a hard time on Twitter, I haven't really heard from her in a long time. Maybe the fact that she's not one hundred percent white ( and is a leetle bit Jewish) made her disappearance a final reality, but of course being a woman had a lot to do with it
Who knows? A lot of the Alt-Right was recently doxed and de-platformed, some members still barely hanging on for dear life. But she hasn't been heard from for a while unless I am missing something. She isn't on Twitter anymore. She doesn't do Youtube anymore.
Another infamous female Youtuber, a young German woman who went by the moniker "Rage After Storm" also disappeared after she came out as a "race realist". I heard she lost her job, and like Tara, totally dropped out of sight.
Evalion, a young Canadian woman once heralded as "the most racist girl on the Internet" when she burst onto the scene with her videos on "how to identify Jews" and other actually very well-made videos, doesn't make videos in service of the alt-right anymore either, and has relegated all her work to a blog/website ( she also got married and moved to California).
Not many women make it in this milieu, it seems to have a turnover rate like the fashion and porn industries
Leftists would say it serves them right, what else did they expect from a movement that inherently detests women? But I have explained, I think it's much more complicated than that
I'm not the only person who has been fascinated with the movement, and there aren't even just a few who were
Luke Ford is a writer who was obsessed with porn stars, and quite cruelly described them as human detritus. I first saw him in the documentary "After Porn Ends" ( because I too, was obsessed with porn stars) where I found I really hated him, because he was so hard on them, speaking of them as if they had some terrible disease that made them unfit for broader society. I root for and ardently admire porn actresses, admire them for being able to hold their heads up high in a world that secretly drools over their performances but hypocritically shuns them in the public space
Then I see him, YEARS LATER, evolved, having gotten sick of writing about the fascinating world of porn actors, and now writing and interviewing with another set of "human detritus"/people who live and exist on the edge of wholesome society: white nationalists in America
It's all about the drama and the intrigue, and this is all more exciting when it's in a milieu of people who are not deemed acceptable in wider society, people who could and have lost their jobs and their platforms espousing these beliefs (porn stars can have a really hard time leaving porn acting for another career track, due to the stigma and lack of education/funds and probably self-confidence in some cases)
It's hard to move on from porn, and it's hard to move on from white nationalism
The Alt-Right movement is dead in the water for now, and even for the wider conservative movement, as we have seen with the recent de-patforming of Alex Jones and Infowars. The irony of this recent defeat is that the Left claims they are evil and violent and yet they give up so easily and are so easily routed! The people who are supposed to be the most violent and evil of all aren't fighting back in the violent way you would expect them to, the way Antifa or other anarchist groups have in the past and continue to do to this day.
These wayward personalities ( especially these men, some of them with mental illness and a totally toxic masculinity) were and still are bound to implode in on themselves, and go after each other. The rise and fall of Alt-Right "celebs" seems to occur when one of them gets "out of line" and the rest of the pack descend upon and rip up the carcass; it's just like how Leftists devour each other, so let them do it to themselves
Renata Hedgeway is the External Affairs Editor (whatever that means) at Devilish Turn and a frequent commenter on other people's blogs
I was bored one day and flipping through my "free TV" (Roku) and I decided to watch a channel I had placed on my "favorites" ( or whatever): the "Dictators Channel"
A channel smack-dabbed chockfull of documentaries about "dictators of the world" ( which of course, is an arbitrary term, depending on whom you with speak with)
I clicked on the one about "Gaddafi", expecting to hear how horrible he was, how he slaughtered his own people on a vicious, psychotic, whim ( as American media is want to tell us about politicians and military men the US doesn't like ), and how he deserved to die like the "Mad Dog" he was
And I was pleasantly surprised (and there was footage from Russia Today, which YOU KNOW is very suspicious....)
I knew Qaddafi wasn't evil, for as much as they tried to demonize him in the Western ( especially US ) press
But I was surprised that they would put a documentary that was somewhat sympathetic to him on Roku
I thought the media consensus was that he was "The Mad Dog of the Middle East" ( what Reagan labelled him ) and Hillary was so glad when he was brutally murdered ( but this humanitarian woman, no matter how much you might hate someone ( and I doubt she hated him, I doubt she even cared), to celebrate his absolutely BRUTAL murder with such glee indicates how much of a humanitarian she is)
But as we know, her ilk and their quirky attitudes about life and death are all but vaunted in Hollywood movies
but his speeches tho...
There are lots of reasons Gaddafi was taken out, and none of them having to do with "murdering his own people" and "being a threat to international human rights"
Gaddafi sustained a campaign of slander against him for decades
The Lockerbie bombing in 1988 was blamed on a Libyan individual whose guilt remains questionable to this day. Even families of the victims question the final conviction of this gentleman and demand a new investigation. Gaddafi was forced to take the blame and pay ten billion dollars in restitution in hopes the US and the West would do away with their sanctions of his country and start buying Libya's oil again.
(The tactic of not buying your oil was also used on Mossadegh of Iran in the 50's, someone else the West, in this case Britain,( and the US too THO) didn't like)
He did actually use oil money to improve the lives of Libyans. Today, Libya is a cesspool where slavery is said to be thriving and a free passage to Europe for "economic migrants" invading the country, something Gaddafi himself warned would happen if Libya was destabilized.
You should really listen to this fellow
You should listen to them. Listening to them could like substitute for like five years of missing political history from your brain
I don't fit into any political group
I would fit into a "spectrum" maybe, but I think people don't care about that stuff
And why should they? It doesn't make any money and it's not very exciting!
I unfortnately and quite ignorantly come from a tradition of radical left-wing thought. I didn't know it was sourced by something called "The Frankfurt School", and that it entailed "cultural marxism", but nonetheless, I believed that capitalism was the downfall of all and, not only capitalism, but I went down a rabbit-hole to the past and after private property as well. I also guilted domestication of animals, agriculture, and civilization itself as extremely "problematic" ( as the neoliberals would say). I still believe that civilization and society are inherently evil, and I agree with a lot of the tenets of intersectional feminism, but I also have a love for geopolitics and male - dominated history ( like the Roman Empire), because the Old Country beckons to me with its essence, and unfortunately, the novels of Joseph Conrad and W Somerset Maugham are my only links to its past...(although I've read all of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and have tried to read all the forgotten and neglected works of Eliza Haywood, Aphra Behn, Delariviere Manley, Amelie Opie and all the other gazillions of female European novelists and writers of centuries prior to this one I WANT IT ALL)
So, if you view politics like sports ( as I do ) and are all like "well, Trump supports this because he really wants to open a gateway with THIS other political player", and/or "this politician is doing THIS because it will open doors to China", people think you're a fascist. The neoliberal left would have you swinging the air at phantom boogeymen and making enemies out of people who are barely eking out an existence for themselves
It's weird, because they are helping to maintain the very status quo that is holding a lot of people in the grip of cultural and economic oppression, and they are uplifting the very globalization and capitalism that I thought we were all supposed to be against so many years ago
What do I mean?
Well, when you insist that freedom and liberty will rise again when a corrupt female politician becomes President of the United States, aren't you helping to maintain the status quo? Someone who helped create crises in Africa and the Middle East? When you defend a half-black President who also colluded in these crimes? When you defend the Democratic party in spite of all its most blatant and obvious crimes? When you claim that "the Clintons did nothing wrong"?
Liberal feminism would have you believe that women's oppression is the linchpin for all other oppressions, and it's not. I knew this for a long time, then was misled to believe otherwise, and today think it's important, but I'm right back where I started - if you want to play politics in the current world, which is dominated by capitalism and corporations and money and all this crap, then women having power isn't any amelioration of this; women are just taking up positions that men formerly had and they're doing the same things. Female CEO's aren't treating their employees or customers or the environment any better. Female scientists and female politicians aren't treating the environment or rebelling against corporate science in any remarkably different way from men. This doesn't mean women should go back to not having any rights, but it also means that this phenomenon of women gaining power in traditional male roles isn't exactly the golden ticket to salvation
But I WANT IT ALL
And I can demand it all
and isn't that true liberation?
Laci Green is an example of someone who didn't abscond from the Left but who decided to give right-wing voices a chance to speak in her head (she's not the only person to publicly examine "the other side". Cassie Jaye, a once supposed feminist, decided to investigate the phenomenon of "men's right activism" in her documentary "The Red Pill" and it is seriously one-sided and awful but I digress; she literally throws out the baby with the bath water)
She was making all these videos about sex and feminism and oppression, but she was also against censorship and the silencing of voices
And she wanted to know "why?"
Why do you all think like this? What does this stem from? Where do we actually disagree and do we possibly sync up on any level?
These are perfectly legitimate questions to ask, but not when you're in a cult
(Or exist in a fascist society )
She complained about "the lack of nuance" on the Left, and the pettiness, and the cliques, and the closing of ranks against anyone slightly deviant; she claims people threatened to rape her or punch her in the face when she didn't toe the line quite exactly as you're supposed to
Liberals are a pretty intolerant group, because they believe their enemy is the epitome of evil, so there are no rules to abide by when you are fighting this incredible enemy
"By any means necessary" is "the ends justify the means"
And I've never believed in that
I could have told you that the Left was inflexible ( especially the men ), having engaged with them for many years, not quite being one of them ( I mean, I espoused "conspiracy theories" about AIDS and 911, two no-no's for most leftists)
I was wondering when I would come across a Slovenian Youtuber railing about the migrant situation in Europe and basically rehashing the same talking points of the Alt-Right and Skeptic community for the past three years
And liberals have always sucked
But feminism, in its pure sense, the way I am talking about it, doesn't
Why can't I be a feminist? In favor of all women's ability to navigate the world independently, to live for themselves, to have the jobs and life experiences that they want, and STILL be against illegal immigration and migrants flooding my beloved Europe, homeland of my parents?
Also, I'm not a nationalist, but why do you have to be a "tradthot" because you care about your country? And why is it fascistic to point out that if you let lots of people from other countries flood your country, you might possibly lose your country ( like what happened in Kosovo and Palestine), and something empires and invading armies have done for hundreds of years to justify taking someone else's land
It just IS
Or how dare I be critical of the wars the US and Israel have wrought upon the regions of the Middle East and beyond that have induced the hordes to flood tiny European countries at the behest of big ones like Germany?
I'm sure many of these people don't want to leave their homes. Most people, I think I may correctly state, want to stay where they are from
They want to speak their own language, they want to eat their own food, they want to remain with their loved ones
Most people don't seek the stress of world travel and adventure. Most people are content to sit at home and stare up at the stars, on the green green grass of home
The governments of the world should be trying to stem this tide of migration, nipping the causes in the bud, instead of encouraging it
And because neither the left nor the right correctly address this, you know they are both phony
Why can't I be for more women in positions of power but I can't criticize candidates for these positions who are just as bad as the men?
Why can't I vote for Trump because I want to shake up the status quo, and how dare I not believe the media that we all along said couldn't be trusted when it tries to demonize this individual you can suddenly trust it ?(like they do everyone the "Deep State" wants to get rid of? )
Why can't I admire some of the things Putin has done to rebuild his country and stand up to the US, which anyone politically honest would decree as the world's biggest bully?
Just because you agree with Tesla and believe that electromagnetism is responsible for what gravity gets credit for, doesn't mean you think the Earth is flat??!?!
It's all or none, a zero sum game in this lead up to some big war, or some super civil unrest. Because if you stop and listen you just can't get mad enough
Nina Constanina has lived in her car for the past three years and cannot imagine coming back to civilization anytime soon
