Cheering Him On

Everybody should watch this clip. It is a stirring speech. It is about the defense of the modern civilization that white men built.

Up in the gallery is a young lady who was Churchill’s secretary/stenographer. She is watching intently. She is a bit anxious, because she doesn’t really know what is going to happen. She wants him to do well and is relieved when he seems to be winning the day.

Such a lady is very appealing to a man. It is about loyalty, about being a friend. Men can appreciate loyalty greatly. Perhaps it comes from working as a team during dangerous hunts. In the modern day, it may come from being in combat with your comrades.

Men appreciate loyalty wherever they find it. Though, in the modern world, with its do what you fell like at the present moment mentality, it becomes harder to come by. It is a shame.

Exit question — Can anybody not be fascinated by Churchill.

Fun fact — Churchill was half American.

    When I was about 12, they came by, working on the railroad. Pulling out the old ties that were starting to deteriorate and replacing them with new ones. Used new spikes to fasten the rails. Left the old wooden ties and spikes where they dropped.

    I took four of the wooden ties, stood them upright in holes I dug into the ground, and then nailed boards to the upright wooden ties. Made myself a fort that way. There were some Cottonwod trees nearby. Took the old spikes and pounded them into the Cottonwod trunks. Made a convenient way to climb high up into the trees to where the first branches began.

    The guys to which I refer were working on the railroad. They were not building the railroad for the first time. There is a distinction there. The song “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” does not specify that the song is about the first building of the railroad.

    There are also many negro spirituals that were actually code for sending signals to each other about coming and going on the underground railroad.

    She may not be off nearly as much as that placard upthread makes her out to be.

    So – to resurrect FB’s question: are uninformed answers to what she said a sign of systemic racism?? As in, why does the guy answering her assume she is talking about what he thinks she is talking about – rather than asking her questions to find out what she was actually talking about? What name do we give to the process of not caring about the lived experiences of others, we just simply assume the other had the same lived experience as us? Of course, that behavior is not specific to the placard upthread.

    Rhetorical questions all, for those who are open to thinking about stuff. Not casting aspersions on anyone with this comment.

    The Multicultural Male Coalition That Could Give Trump Four More Years

    In the months and years to follow, all over Miami, in bars, coffee shops, and at the gym, I would overhear–and was sometimes pulled into — these rudimentary political conversations between young men of color. What was immediately obvious was that a majority, if not all, of these young men were brought into their nascent political awareness by issues relating to their masculinity and manhood. An archetype emerged: these were young men who never thought about politics until politics knocked on their door and made them aware of its existence. Like so many, personal grievance is what drove them into the political arena and what was driving their politics. The gist of their beef: When the hell did it stop being okay to be a regular dude?

  25. Too much wine for Karen makes Karen a Nancy.

    Wine language is so often absurd that it’s a punchline. Notes of smoldering tobacco or forest underbrush or underripe Jonagold apple — it sounds almost farcical in its specificity. Even worse is when the descriptor is inedible. How many people have actually tasted a wet river stone, anyway?

    But now, it’s becoming clearer than ever that the conventional language used to describe wine isn’t merely intimidating and opaque. It’s also inextricable from racism and sexism, excluding dimensions of flavor that are unfamiliar to the white, Western cultures that dominate the world of fine wine and reinforcing retrograde notions of gender.

    I’m always thinking about words, but this summer, I’ve been thinking about language in new ways, particularly in how seemingly innocuous words can have a larger impact. As the country confronts its entrenched social inequities with fresh urgency, the world of wine has experienced a radical call to action, too. My conversations with wine professionals like Jirka Jireh and Martin Reyes for a recent story about the need to improve wine education for BIPOC really put into focus just how limited and unwelcoming the established wine lexicon can be.

    Shut up, bitch.

    I like how drunken Nancy has decided wine language is racist for being French while using the word sommelier (repeatedly) rather than just “wine dude”.
    But really….if French is inherently racist, English is just as racist.
    We must communicate via grunts, whistles, claps, and stomps.
    Anything else would be racist (also sexist, for some reason she did not seem to specify. Guess communication is hard, like physics and math).

    While I’m not certain of the best name, … Ultimately your personal experience does not change truth, morality, or anything except your own perspective, so I shouldn’t care much for arguments based off of your personal anecdotes. Since we can’t know everybody else’s personal experiences, sometimes assuming that they, like us, have had ups and downs, good and bad, justice and injustice, and should have learned to deal with it all appropriately, is the most reasonable assumption. To assume that somebody else’s lived experience should have left them less educated or less responsible than myself, would be pretty bigoted. I try to avoid the soft bigotry of low expectations. Even though other’s experiences were different from mine, is no excuse for them not to have turned out to be astute and responsible adults like most everybody else.

    Amid pressure from left-wing activists and media outlets to clamp down on “misinformation” from the right, Facebook has begun censoring political ads that receive negative fact-checks — fact-checks that are produced by mostly left-leaning fact-checkers and that mostly target right-leaning ads. In at least two new cases, these fact-checks do not actually check facts — they instead merely state that factually true claims are “missing context,” then downgrade the ads.

    Rogan interviewed Abigail Shrier, author of the book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, according to one of the sources. From the opening moments of that podcast, Shrier associates transgender youth with those with autism; Shrier and Rogan spend parts of the episode explaining that young people are being pressured into transitioning by YouTube and other media.

    “You realize that people are not looking at this objectively,” Rogan said in the podcast. “They are activists and they have this agenda, and the agenda is very ideologically driven that anybody who even thinks they might be trans should be trans, are trans, and the more trans people the better.”

    In the book, Shrier invalidates the lived experience of trans people by comparing transitioning to adolescent phenomena like eating disorders, self-harm, or the occult, according to Men’s Health. She also described wanting to transition as a “contagion” with the potential to infect other children, an entirely scientifically baseless idea, Men’s Health noted.

    More about the “Puppy Murder” movie

    U.S.—Netflix is embroiled in controversy yet again with its new documentary Puppy Murder, a show where the director kills puppies to teach you that murdering puppies is bad.

    The movie is just two hours of puppies being brutally murdered onscreen, sending a powerful message to the viewer about just how bad puppy murder is. From getting shot and stabbed to being run over with a steamroller and the inspiring climactic scene where a puppy is dropped into a volcano, the movie unequivocally and powerfully shows the brutal reality of puppy murder.

    “I thought about just making a documentary where I didn’t actually murder puppies to make the point, but it just wasn’t powerful enough,” said director Amélie Le’Charpentier (who is, by the way, a woman of color and an immigrant, so think about that before you criticize her). “I drew on my own experiences having observed puppy murder a number of times and decided I would just drop anvils and pianos on them and stuff so you could see how terrible puppy murder is.”

    Many people spoke up against the film but were labeled “triggered conservatives” and “scandal-mongers” since they obviously just didn’t get the message of the film, which very clearly teaches that puppy murder is bad.

    The show has been a big success among psychopaths and future mass murderers and will see a sequel called Baby Murder next fall.

    Or is it possible that you’re not all that low-information a voter after all? Could it be that you’ve been following developments pretty closely all along, and that, despite Trump’s successes, and despite the fact that he’s proven all the dark predictions of 2016 entirely wrong, you’ve insisted on sticking to your guns?

    Now, why would this be? Do you see your stubbornness as a virtue? Did your hostility toward Trump become such an essential part of you that you’ve been incapable of shedding it, no matter how many times he proved your expectations wrong? Or could it be that your presidential criteria are entirely superficial? Could it be that after four years of stellar performance, you still despise Trump for no other reason than that you find him aesthetically unappealing?

    Now while the league proposal said that there would be a variety of names permitted, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided as a team they would all wear the same name. There was a victim of a police shooting in 2018 in the Pittsburgh area – Antwon Rose Jr. Rose was the passenger in a car during a traffic stop. As he was fleeing the police opened fire and killed Rose in the process.
    We don’t want him to be forgotten.

    ACT 2
    On Sunday when The Steelers faced the Giants offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva created a small stir when it was seen that he had taped over Rose’s name and had placed another in its place. He sported the name Alwyn Cashe. This is not shocking, as Villanueva is a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger. He also has been recognized in the past as being one of the few players willing to stand for the anthem.
    Villanueva wanted to honor the life of a fallen soldier. Cashe died from injuries incurred as he was on fire and pulling out soldiers from a vehicle that had been struck in battle.
    Steelers LT Alejandro Villanueva has the name Alwyn Cashe on the back of his helmet

    Seeing a problem with Villanueva’s decision was the mother of Antwon Rose Jr., Michelle Kenny. She posted her opinions on the matter on FaceBook.
    ”Let me very very very clear. The Pittsburgh Steelers took a team vote. Obviously one person didn’t like the results so they chose to do something different…But this one person showed us exactly who he is and obviously he didn’t approve of how the vote turned out…While he was so busy being negative what it actually did now forced more people to engage in this conversation.”
    Then, after declaring, ”That’s for his coach, team and organization to address NOT ME!”, Ms. Kenny promised, ”I’m going to use this negative press and negativity to motivate me to hold the Pittsburgh Steelers even more accountable!!!”
    It is not clear what the team needs to be accountable for, but if dozens of players honoring the memory of her son is not enough I suppose she has more to do…? It is rather curious that honoring a POC Army vet who died with honor and posthumously received the Silver Star is considered negative.

    ACT 3
    With the focus on Villanueva the details were only gradually arrived at, but eventually a realization is coming over some. It has been learned that Antwon Rose Jr. had been been recently involved in a drive-by shooting. The car he was in had been pulled over not for a routine moving violation but as a felony traffic stop. It fit the description called in from the shooting, and they were pulled over minutes after.
    Rose had a gun in his possession when shot, and two other weapons were found in the car. One of the guns had been stolen during an armed robbery earlier that day. It seems rather curious that the team would be unaware of details such as these given the events occurred over two years ago and could be researched prior to making their decision.

    But Chauvin’s knee is a red herring. The issue here is fentanyl.

    Here’s how the respected website, WebMD, describes the effects of fentanyl:

    “[F]entanyl has rapid and potent effects on the brain and body, and even very small amounts can be extremely dangerous.

    “It only takes a tiny amount of the drug to cause a deadly reaction,” … “Fentanyl can depress breathing and lead to death. The risk of overdose is high with fentanyl.”

    Here’s what the CDC says about fentanyl. “It is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine.”

    Of course George couldn’t breathe — because fentanyl, mixed with methamphetamines, kills breathing. Despite the bad optics, “I can’t breathe” was not because of the officer’s knee.

    The medical examiner’s statement on lethal fentanyl, and the previous protestations of “I can’t breathe,” even before he got into the back seat of the squad car, and long before Chauvin applied the notorious “knee” technique, shows that George was already dying from the lethal fentanyl overdose before officers put him in the back seat of the car. That fentanyl, with methamphetamine ingestion, and cannabinoids — that’s right, George popped some meth alongside the fentanyl, plus a little reefer too — raises more than a reasonable doubt in favor of these policemen.
