"Earlier"?

Wasn't the federal government removing native children from their parents into the 1960s? Wasn't this an attempt to delete the native people by diluting or halting the propagation of their genes?

Interesting. I’m happy to be persuaded otherwise but I’d argue modern nation building for USA, Aust, NZ and Southern Africa all occurred between (say) 1770 and 1900. Whether it be revolutionary wars, westward expansion, Great Treks, exploration and settlement, accommodations with the Maori etc. You could argue the concept of Australia only formed in the late 19thC with geo-nature based self expression morphing into Federation. But apparently we get to own the earlier treatment of the natives, so nah. You could also argue the major American displacement of the Indians occurred west of the Mississippi dating from 1811-1920s. Ie concurrent with Australian expansion.

In any case. No one is denying Aborigines the inclusion of smoking ceremonies with redcoat re-enactments. Or even their post-hoc invented flag representing a non-existent wakanda. But spare me the white hating, nation tearing, black-armband-history political theatre embodied in the 250 flags of mourning.

“ Happy Australia Day? Until these injustices are righted, it’s hard to see it as little more than the celebration of invasion, genocide and the theft of children, land and basic human dignity.”

Meanwhile Ms Chang is keen to re-educate us on the malleability of Australia Day.
Apparently it was once known nationally as “Foundation Day” so that means we can nix current nazi celebrations as meaningless . :?

It’s January 25 - day before Australia Day.

Took the wife and the dog for a walk on the Barangaroo headland around the corner from Circular Quay where the Aboriginal counter production will apparently take place. Rehearsal was in full swing. Massive production with banks of cameras capturing every angle etc. But what really struck me were the overwhelming quantity of aboriginal flags, sans Australian entries, that made the place resemble Nuremberg. Actually quite taken aback by the huge production investment and relentless mono cultural propaganda drive that put the tiki torches in Charlottesville to shame. I’ll post some pics when I roll off my bed.

The complain about urban Gentrification today. They forgot their complaint about 'White Flight' away from cities, 40 years ago.
Yeesh. Make up yer mind.
The irony is that the Black Panthers' view on gun control back then was similar to the views now held by the NRA: that a citizen's right to bear arms is protected by the Second Amendment and should not be infringed. Only I thought the NRA were supposed to be the bad guys.

Surely if the Black Panther Party disrupted a legislative hearing to protest a gun control Bill at a time when the NRA was actually in support of gun control, then that should make them the bad guys, too, no? The fact that the NRA later changed their mind should be of no consequence, shouldn't it? :think: Truly, we live in a society.
I thought mail order guns were obtainable before the black panthers but not after. I may be misinformed.
Mail order guns were banned shortly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, four years prior. The new law they were protesting was only in California and it had already been proposed and was just about to be signed into law. It had nothing to do with them at all.

Exactly. The complicating factor, as I mentioned a few days ago, is critics as a group have become beholden to diversity/inclusion propaganda and are frequently reviewing fidelity to the dogma rather than the actual artistic merits of a piece.

:rimshot:

While it's obviously a nice bonus if an actor has a strong physical resemblance to a historical character they are portraying, it's not necessarily wrong, or historical revisionism, to cast an actor who doesn't resemble the character but brings other things to the table. In the case of Rhys Meyers, he brought a sexual energy and overwhelming sense of menace that was fantastic for the role, and most would regard his casting as being an inspired choice, not a mistake (although the last 2 seasons of The Tudors would have been better if Rhys Meyers was willing to use prosthetics to let the character age somewhat historically accurately).

Make no mistake, if the producers of the BBC program, which I'm completely unfamiliar with, earmarked the role for a POC, then I condemn that entirely. But if they hired who they deemed the best actress for the role even though she is black, then I have zero issue with it.

My wife loves this kind of stuff and she puts up with me laughing the whole time she watches. I try to keep it to a minimum... but I can't help myself.

It is a disaster porn show with firefighters who are.... vain metro male (Rob Lowe), Mary Sue woman (Liv Tyler), FTM Trans black, female Muslim (complete with head covering), rowdy gay druggie, White male with PTSD.....

I call the show "9-1-1 Woke"... and my wife asks me what that means. Haha.

There are definitely cases of people carrying large sums, often across state lines, on their way to buying a car or some high value item having their cash seized simply because the cop is suspicious about why they are carrying a lot of cash. There's an incentive in that a lot of the money goes to the force, which makes both the cops and government happy, so it is made very difficult for anyone to get their cash back. I believe the original reason for the law is to target the proceeds of drug crime. Leave it to the cops and anyone carrying lots of cash is going to be a drug crime suspect. The law is so open to abuse it's a sick joke.

Thank goodness all those cozzers are out policing thoughtcrime, even if it does mean that less than 8% of all crime reports lead to a charge:

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-51221054
And here's a good explanation of how groups like Stonewall get the police to enforce their anti thoughtcrime agenda. They go straight for entities like the College of Policing to get their agenda implemented by the backdoor.
https://youtu.be/YUuZMyqhUUk

Johnson's plan to get more police on the street isn't going to do much good if training issues and police attitudes aren't addressed. There appears to be this attitude amongst police, especially the younger lot, that their job is to circumvent citizen's legal protections wherever possible and bully them into surrendering personal details they are not required to give. They seem very quick to use the old "if you've got nothing to hide" ploy. I'd be very hesitant to give police my name given the number of incidences of people who've popped up on the police radar and then mysteriously been subjected to a spate of vehicle stops or other forms of harassment. It looks as if the cops have concluded that citizens need to justify legal actions in public to them rather than they themselves having to justify their stopping and questioning of said citizens. There's this vid on youtube of a kid, doing nothing more than walking on a residential sidewalk, being approached by a policewoman on a bike asking him what he is doing in the neighbourhood. He declined to give his details, which he is entitled to do, and she then proceeded to follow him asking why he was declining. He asked her to stop harassing him but she kept on saying she "just wanted to talk". No big deal you might think, but there are countless vids of the police doing similar things, sometimes trying to force their way illegally into people's houses. The law explicitly states that police cannot use a legal refusal to comply with police wishes as reasonable grounds for suspicion. Complaining to the police watchdog achieves little. It is quite often an obvious case of challenged "authoritay". Looks to me as if the police have lost the ability or will to conduct proper investigation relying instead on abusive "proactive" policing techniques. They sometimes give the appearance of being scared of actually having to tackle genuine criminals without a 30 to 1 advantage.

At least the UK doesn't have asset forfeiture laws like the US. I cannot believe that the police can stop your vehicle and steal your cash without evidence of criminal activity in some states. Surely that must be a constitutional violation of some sort.

Matt Cavanaugh wrote: The Tulsa 'Black Wall Street' riot is a matter of obsession for the Woke. Last time I debated my SJW friend who loves debating, she brought it up as an example of how blacks face economic discrimination. I said, "that was ninety fucking nine years ago. Got anything more recent?" She was stumped.
The latest incarnation of this obsession seems to be trying to cancel the word 'riot' from the event and replace it with 'massacre'. The Wikipedia article for the event, which is nicely detailed, makes it pretty clear 'riot' is the more accurate term. Apparently, it started with a justified attempt by an armed black group to protect an arrested black teenager from lynching and they clashed with an armed white lynch mob (lynching itself wasn't strictly racialized in 1920's Tulsa, as a white man had been lynched a couple of years prior). When violence inevitably broke out, the black group got the better of the initial skirmish and the pillaging of the prosperous black neighborhood was a reprisal amid panicked rumors that an armed black mob was shooting whites. While it's pretty clear that the 1920's Tulsa white population contained an inordinately high percentage of rabid animals, the Woke attempt to revise the event as a racist white mob massacring a prosperous black neighborhood purely out of racial hatred is a gross oversimplification.

They're taking a joke as gospel. Nevermind Chappelle's most recent special, with a long description of precisely-how he'd defend his home with a shotgun.

Black activist complainers pretend police always Occupied their communities. 50 years ago, their complaint was that police Ignored their communities.

The complain about urban Gentrification today. They forgot their complaint about 'White Flight' away from cities, 40 years ago.
Yeesh. Make up yer mind.
The irony is that the Black Panthers' view on gun control back then was similar to the views now held by the NRA: that a citizen's right to bear arms is protected by the Second Amendment and should not be infringed. Only I thought the NRA were supposed to be the bad guys.

Surely if the Black Panther Party disrupted a legislative hearing to protest a gun control Bill at a time when the NRA was actually in support of gun control, then that should make them the bad guys, too, no? The fact that the NRA later changed their mind should be of no consequence, shouldn't it? :think: Truly, we live in a society.

By the way, browsing Reddit (as you do) I came across some posts on /r/BlackPeopleTwitter, where they discuss the recent gun rally in ... Virginia?

Apparently, they are absolutely convinced that if they were to have a gun rally of equal size with only black people (because they think the gun rally had only white, right-wing, conservative people), not only would it not be allowed (according to them), but the police would be called in, most of them would get shot and killed and the government would enforce even stricter gun control than they have now. They also think that people don't really care about gun control unless it's to do with black people.

And the reason they think that is, and I hope you're sitting down, because the Black Panther Party in the 60's staged a gun control protest and that apparently caused the government to crack down on the usage of guns.

Now if you're like me and you hear something like that, not only does it sound fishy, but it's also something that happened 50 years ago. And it wasn't that they were staging an open-carry rally, but that 31 Black Panther Party members, in 1967, known for their 'by any means necessary' tactics, walked into the capitol of Sacramento, carrying loaded shotguns and assault rifles, where a gun control bill was currently being carried and hijacked the proceedings. Then, afterwards, they were arrested. None of them got shot.

Further, the gun control bill that they were protesting (the Mulford Act) had already been proposed and its intent was to prevent anyone within the state of California to carry loaded guns in public. It has no mention of the Black Panthers anywhere.

'Woke' culture is, pardon my French, retarded. Its obsession with victimhood is off the scale.

'Black Wall Street' is a bit like 'the Islamic Golden Age' when arguing about the role Muslims play today in the pursuit of knowledge. They point to it contentiously, but they barely have anything contemporary in their arsenal. The 'Islamic Golden Age' ended 700 years ago.

I was saddened when I learned Terry had gotten a rare form of dementia. So bad that he could barely talk, let alone think. I imagine in the end it was like being trapped in his own body. Now that he's gone, it's comforting to know he won't be suffering anymore, but honestly it's devastating news. One of the old guards of British comedy. RIP. :handgestures-salute: :flags-wavegreatbritain:

Yeah. Along with Graham Chapman he was my favourite Python. Then, in descending order, Gillian, Palin, Cleese, and Idle.

According to a Diversity & Comics' video... the creator of the Watchmen tv show went on an official Watchmen podcast & said he learned about the Tulsa race riot from a Ta Nehisi Coates book-- which was a big fad of the month among woke white liberal screenwriters.

I'm impressed by Zack's knack for literary criticism. He's a bit like Joe Rogan-- on the surface a dunderhead, but consistantly stumbling his way into honest glimpses of real insight.

Ya Boi Zack (Richard Meyer) has been in the process of suing one Mark Waid for tortious interference. I'm guessing he wisely avoids this topic in his own broadcasts, but I follow this case watching Nick Rekieta ( late night internet shock jock).
It's been going on for about a year so far, and they've finally gotten past jurisdictional arguments, and the case will be heard in a West Texas federal court.
