This BLM mass madness feels like a liberal backlash to their loss of relevance during the end of the world Covid lockdown. That and an opportunity to literally set the world ablaze in an orgy of self hatred for the West.

It’s a social cancer that roars back after remission. I don’t know what to fear most. The continuation of ‘tard destruction of society post a Trump re-election or the actual exercise of power by the left.

Received via email today from Airbnb -


As we work to process the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others, we wanted to send a message to you directly. To hosts and guests who are hurting, angry, and scared, we want you to know that Airbnb stands with you.

Discrimination is the greatest threat to a community built on belonging and acceptance. It cuts to the core of who we are and what we believe in. Airbnb stands with Black Lives Matter, and we reject racism, bigotry, and hate.

We can’t talk about recent events without also acknowledging the painful truth that some hosts and guests still experience discrimination, something that is the very opposite of our mission to create belonging. In 2016, Airbnb launched our nondiscrimination policy and community commitment, and over 1.3 million people who declined the pledge have been removed from our platform. We still have work to do, and we’re continuing to take action on our commitment to fighting discrimination.

One way we’re doing that is by donating a total of $500,000 to the NAACP and the Black Lives Matter foundation in support of their fight for equality and justice, in addition to matching donations to both groups made from all of our employees. Another is sharing an Activism and Allyship guide that our Black employee resource group, Black@Airbnb, prepared for our team, which references work from activists and experts in antiracism. We thought it would be helpful to share these resources with you—as we all work together to become better and more active allies.

Download guide

Please take care of yourselves, and stay safe.

In solidarity,

The Airbnb Team

I talk to girls in their 20's. I hear about their dating lives. They get into their first serious relationships-- with equally-inexperienced guys-- and the guys act weird-- melodramatic, manipulative. To my sensibilities-- the guys are cringe-y. Unmasucline. Disgracing themselves. They remind me of batty old women.

My hypothesis is-- these guys were raised by mothers who used those tactics, unchallenged. The guys grow up thinking that just-how normal people function & get-their-way.
They haven't yet realized their upbringing was screwy & they should learn better ways to engage with the world. Some of them will never outgrow acting like mommy.

Scott Adams reminds me of those guys. He has some worthy insights. But he's attached to his master-of-manipulation schtick. He would be far-more persuasive-- if he just presented his points as simply as possible. Minus the histronics. It's the same advice he gives in the video! Don't sell past the close. Let the ideas sell themselves-- and then stop babbling, before you queer the deal. Black Leaders Don't Have Solutions. yep, true. They Prefer To Milk Problems, Rather Than Solve Them. also true. This Ends Tonight OR ELSE I will have a tantrum and never-ever help you ever ever again! You've upset your mother, young man!! How daaaare you! --uh, no. Fuck you. Eat a dick, Dilbert.

Scott Adams promising to pack up his sanctimonious bullshit & fuck off-- if there are another night of riots-- is one of the few good reasons to riot. Finally: a tangible positive result!

Maybe his audience isn't really blacks. Maybe his message 'to' blacks is really a message to his impotent white fans: he's chest-thumping-- performing the role of the mighty-whitey-voice-of-reason... giving those unruly blackies a firm talking-to. He's saying what his fans wish they could say. For them to nod & clap & admire Scott Adams. Yuck. No thanks. That's how Elizabeth Warren's campaign speeches work. Don't be such a withered floopy vagina, Dilbert.

Today I watched progressive-leaning journalist Zaid Jilani, on Rising.

Rather than a glorious revolution, Jilani compared these riots to the the looting in Baghdad, after Saddam's fall. Then came civil war.

I looked at Jilani's twitter. Good stuff. He's against treating rioters and looters as-if they're noble savages, exempt from moral responsibility for their actions. https://twitter.com/ZaidJilani

Your scenario envisions a never-ending pool of people willing to commit crime [supply], as well as a pool of drug addicts who cannot be deterred [demand].

Of course it stops. It stops when all the criminals have been removed from society and kept locked away, and all those prone to addiction are provided proper care and support.

After reading the racists above explain the rioting, I decided to post about something else instead.

If and when the time comes to cast someone for the part of Roger Stone, if they don't choose Brent Spiner it will be a travesty.

I'm watching Penny Dreadful: City of Angels and whenever he is onscreen, that's all I see....Roger Stone. Eerie.

First step would be to stop the war on drugs.

San Francisco has stopped the war on drugs, and now Dominican gangsters deal openly on the street.

Commercial pot growing has been legalized and sanctioned and supported in California and in my county. All that's led to is the criminal syndicates to come in and set up shop.

It's answer begging the question to argue we must reduce the prison population.
The bottom line is that wars on drugs don't remove the demand. If the demand is there with no legal supply then criminal syndicates will run the trade and sell at inflated prices generating big profits which go toward corrupting law enforcement. The profits incentivise brutal means of protecting markets. If you take a professional burglar off the street you have probably made a big dent in the burglary stats. Take a drug dealer off the street and you have just created an opening for a new recruit. It never stops. The only practical solution is to meet demand through legal channels and reduce the profit incentive for illegal sales.

cf. Dog's observation:
Roving groups of youngish black guys walked and biked around, hyped-up, eying the police presence. On 13th Street, I passed the remains of an NYPD van—incongruously parked in its place between two civilian vehicles—that had been torched and burnt to its skeleton. One of the clutches of kids walked by, cooing admiringly, “Oooh, they lit it up. Black lives matter, y’all.”

Would these riots be happening if Bernie Sanders had been allowed to become the Dem nominee? i don't think so. I think the left radicals would be thinking This IS A Once In A LifeTime Chance/ Dont Screw It Up. (Right now, they're all Melissa Click-- shouting 'I Need Some Muscle* Over Here!' (*Black muscle.)

If Bernie were the nominee--- we might be seeing different grassroots acting-out, tho, from the right. When Bernie was in the lead-- my gut felt a hopeless roller-caster-drop-- fearing this country is really dumb/crazy/buttmad enough to go full-retard Tumblr Socialist. In that alternate-reality-- the Boomer Dem Establishment media & paranoid right-- would both be triggered.

In Trump, the GOP gave their Id a turn in the driver's seat. Relieving a pressure-buildup, without an explosion. My hunch is-- Trump's peak-usefulness is in the past. He'd do everyone a big favor if he'd die quietly on the toilet, like Elvis. Even the left would rather play aggrieved-underdog vs. President Pence; than have to actually be in-charge.

The rioters are right about the cops & prisons. Medieval dungeon system. I don't know how to dismantle it. Onnit supplements in the drinking water, to increase everyone's IQ 15 points? More likely we degenerate into 3rd world morass & no one bothers to lock anyone up, anymore.

Bloomingdales looted last night, Nike store, Adidas, Supreme, Gucci, Chanel, Coach. GameStop. Trek bike store. Pharmacies. 20 private guards outside Prada store-- it was still vandalized. Several of those fashion places were boarded-up during Covid. Boards came off as they prepared to reopen. Too soon.

Another thought about your daughter: you're right-- she's a an SJW. But I'll emphasize a slight distinction-- she's also got Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Which is a joke-diagnosis of course... but I think it's useful to think of TDS as a real phenomenon. Much like people who say they've been abducted by aliens. The truth of that claim is unproven, at best. But the ~phenomenon~ of people saying they were abducted-- is real. And that can be studied. Phenomenology.


Of the 3 people in my life who have most bugged-out with TDS in the last few days... two of them...living in separate states... who've never met each-other... did the exact-same thing: they both accused someone of 'sounding like' Trump's rhetoric style and "being Trump". One retired man told me his rich plastic surgeon brother-- a puerto rican-- sounds "exactly" like Trump, when he talks. He also said it about his boss-- an infamous art gallery owner... who has made headlines for his pro-Trump tweets. Which-- admittedly-- are written in style similar to Trump. And a former-friend who banned me from his blog-- ranted at-me "You ARE TRUMP!"

Trump has been the catch-all Emmanuel Goldstein/ 2-minutes-hate figure/ scapegaot-- for years now-- and they can't get a grip on him, to drag him down. (yet). Which is driving the trump-haters nuts. Watch out. You don't really even gotta-be a real Trump supporter-- to be their proxy.

A middle-aged mother I know in Brooklyn-- noticed a police van parked on her block 3 days ago.

An older econoline. It never moved. No cops approached it. She suspected it was bait.

When a scattering of looters came to smash and paint it-- she saw a plainclothes cop filming them, but not interfere.

She filmed from her window. I've seen a snippet. New SUV cop cars are parked nearby-- closer to a bigger crowd of people-- sitting with cops inside & lights flashing. Close-enough that she could pan her cameraphone from the old van over to the new cars, in one motion.

Earlier today-- in broad daylight-- near NYU/University Place-- I saw one burned van & one smashed one-- both old econolines again-- still left out, from the night before. It was a pleasant sunny Sunday with young couples and students walking around, lingering, taking pictures. Surely those vans will be left right where they are, as long as they're useful to absorb more anger & capture more vandals on video.

John D,

Sorry to hear you're getting 'cancelled' on Facebook. I came here to share a link with you... a little late now... but, maybe not entirely-too late?

I was watching this clip from Rising/TheHill ...and you popped into my head. I wondered if you are always the 'straight man' in your interactions with your daughter.
'Straight man' as-in a comedy duo... like Ernie & Bert or the Smothers Brothers.
She sets you up to be the Square to her Hipster/ and you are indeed kinda Square... so the script ends the way she wants.

SJWs modus operandi is to troll square institutions & people with their outlandish sjw philosophy. And SJWs hate it when us pitter types usurp their cool troll role.

IN THIS CASE-- if you want to deploy the troll gambit... I'd recommend calling-out your daughter for 'centering' the dire national tragedy of a black man being murdered by cops... around her White Woman Tears. She's clutching her pearls, getting The Vapors, and fainting on her couch. Prioritizing her comfortable suburban Daddy Issues over the real day to day struggle of being a poor black MAN in Amerikkka. Highly problematic.

Remember Mykeru's Law!
“As any progressive movement grows and achieves success, the probability of it being co-opted by women who want to make it all about their vagina approaches 1”

Your daughter is being That Woman! She's like Amy Cooper in the Central Park!

My favorite line in this video... is when the black guy sez he's ok with feminists-- as long as there aren't too many of them in the room, when there's real Social Justice work to be done.

Either send this to your daughter, post it on her facebook, or just cop this guy's attitude yourself...



Or... just ride it out quietly... resist the urge to fight-back... and maybe take some dark humor comfort in the troll mentality.

=
Well... here comes a marathon of people chanting "I can't breathe", outside my window, A row of cops blocking them from the Williamsburg Bridge (and stopping traffic from intersecting them), a helicopter above, the sound metal gates being pulled down to close businesses, firecrackers... and... now riot gear cops... 4:14pm

=
Cops are letting them walk on the pedestrian walk on the bridge/ otherwise they'd stop traffic.

If this goes on until dark it's going to get uglier.
Russian agents and neo nazis Rioters and antifa shits blocked Hwy 101 in San Jose yesterday. Smashing windows with crow bars.

At some point, one of the drivers will be CCW.

In California, long guns can be open carried, albeit unloaded, in a vehicle. It takes but a few seconds to load, far less than it took that thug to smash all the windows of a car. IIRC, during last year's fire evacuations, we were told carrying unlocked, loaded firearms in vehicles was allowed.

Ordinary citizens will fight back. In Minneapolis already, a [white] pawn shop owner shot dead a [black] looter. Dozens of cops suddenly appeared out of nowhere, performed CPR on the looter, arrested the shop owner, as MN is a duty-to-retreat state.

To paraphrase a certain stable genius:
"There are really fucking stupid people on both sides."
People really are suckers for conspiracy theories, especially if they fit in to their preconceived notions. Take Birthers, Pizzagate, staged school shootings versus patriarchy, all whites are racists,all men are rapists. The loons on the fringes have a lot in common.

Well before Trump, Joy Reid was a race-baiter, a provocateur, a homophobe, and lying sack of shit. I actually met her once at a social function long ago, so I can also attest to her being a complete and utter cunt.

That being said, I have otherwise intelligent, rational friends repeating this particular conspiracy theory, surely due to late-stage TDS.

Yeah... wow... So I found my wife very upset when I checked on her this morning. She had been sitting up in bed working on her tablet and when I asked her what was wrong she started crying.

So... My daughter posted all over Facebook that she unfriended me because I am a racist. Yep... my little bitch of a daughter publicly called me a racist on social media. I am simultaneously furious and heart-broken.

My wife tried to defend me on Facebook for hours this morning before I checked on her. My wife got 100% dragged by my daughter's leftist friends who congratulated my daughter for understanding her "boundaries." I cried about what happened with my daughter yesterday... and today all I can do is laugh and curse her... and... well... I don't know. I am a fucking mess.

I should have taken your approach Service Dog. I should have just lied. I just really suck at lying. I have lived my whole life telling my friends and family exactly what I think. It would be very hard for me to change.

Well.... at least I will not feel like I have to lend her any more money... haha. I really hope she goes broke so that I have to take over payments for her motor home. I will let it get repossessed... or I will go pick it up so I can sell it. At least this will help her get her finances fixed. She has way more bills than she can handle. I will just let her fail.

Ultimately, my daughter has also called my wife a racist on Facebook... and of course, all my daughter's friends agree. My daughter also unfriended my wife which is mostly why she was crying. I apologized to my wife and she told me it was not my fault. I told her I should have lied but she knows that would be very hard for me to do.

I guess she gave me permission to be honest at this point. There is no point in lying now.

While sweeping the apartment, I listened to Sargon's riot-reaction livestream, and thought of you & daughter.

Sargon talked about the popular notion that the US is unequivocally bad-- the evil empire of capitalism, dropping bombs for oil, ignorant armed christian redneck rapists, a racist state built on slavery-- which never-really ended.

Your daughter believes in that worldview. Her evil-empire is even-bigger, including 'patriarchy' and 'gender' as vast rightwing conspiracies.

Her question about Trump's looting-leads-to-shooting tweet-- was a litmus test. For her, the verdict about the US is already 100% settled. 100% guilty.

She's testing you-- sorting you-- into 'Which side are you on?' / 'You're either with us or against us.'

Her test is defective. But she can't comprehend that-- because it would require comprehending that her simplistic USA-bad gender-patriarchy-bad worldview is defective.

And... even-if you 'passed' her test. Let's say you were familiar with the racist 1960's police chief who said 'when the looting starts the shooting starts'... and you considered the phrase to be irredeemably racist due to that origin...

...she'd only -provisionally- sort you onto the side with the angels. Until the next test. <-- I say that with confidence because I find myself in that position right now.

By some accident-- right-before this inflammatory moment-- I stopped playing devil's advocate for Trump. Stopped trying to talk my Trump-Deranged acquaintances off the ledge of preposterous positions-- guiding them to more-tenable critiques. I started saying I was sick of defending Trump from his own bullshit/ and I felt the trollish joke of Trump had grown old-- and 4 more years would be a crappy sequel. (The only 'better' aspect of Biden or Bernie would be the novelty factor. new lolcow.)

So-- what's the result of me distancing myself from Trump/ right-before the current shitshow? I guess it avoided some hairy confrontations with people in a mood to shout in my face. But their disposition toward me right-now is unease. I'm an uncomfortable unknown-quantity in limbo. I'm neither devil nor angel. They'd be more comfortable with the easy-answer of those pigeonholes.

I'd take your daughter at her word: she can't -conceive- of a legit difference of opinion on 'looting=shooting' or whether that's racist. Trying to enlighten her won't work. Your only choice is to accept her framing & decide whether to place yourself inside or outside her stupid black&white border wall.

Good one..... I will use it.

If I were an angry little vandal-- I'd follow the one-way signs in the picture: the block to the left of the precinct-- is where the cops park their personal cars. Easy to see which cars belong to cops: they park on sidewalks, on hydrants, in spots with diagonal no-parking lines painted.

My girlfriend's 'Citizen' app is showing NYPD cop cars on fire, stores looted, windows smashed-- video clips upload from app users' phones. Much more than what's on Google News and NY1.com local news site.

The comments section is always spicy. Around here, the avid crime-follower commenters are black, brown, immigrant, & lower-class people. People in govt-subsidized housing. They use words like 'savages', while the NY1.com headlines say 'protesters' and 'demonstrators'.

This was my local police precinct/ adjacent fire station , 5pm today... 'bike rack' barricades, fire vehicles parked outside the station,
those are 2 cops in helmets-- maybe scooter helmets, not riot helmets. (Seeing this reminded me-- back in '91-- when the Rodney King riots happened in LA-- me seeing of a van full of NYPD, waiting under a bridge in Harlem-- with face-shield helmets & plastic body-shields... just waaaiting... was the moment I decided to quit the aux. police.)



Now it's 11pm-- not one person out on my block.

Glad I live 16 miles from downtown Detroit. It is quiet as a mouse here. I walked to the corner and watched the space station fly by followed by the dragon. Fantastic!
