England whiteknighted Poland in 1939 despite Hitler getting screwed as a consequence of whiteknighting the Sudetens.

Which, strangely enough, is the usual objective ....

A long time ago I was in a relationship with a woman that really had a bad time dealing with unwanted advances. She really seemed to hate it but didn't seem able to be direct and tell them to knock it off. Likewise she would get pissed at me when I told them to back off because presumably she didn't want me to behave as if I owned her, in spite of the fact we were cohabiting and in an exclusive relationship. She would have a shitfit when other women flirted with me or if I showed interest in other women but I was an asshole if told them (harassers) to fuck off.
Another woman I was dating came to me complaining about someone we knew that was grabbing her ass while she was playing pool and not backing off when she asked him. A few days later I was at the bar and saw him playing pool I grabbed his ass a bunch of times and got him to kind of plead to get me to stop. When I told her later, she was more pissed at me then she was at him.
The lesson learned is that whiteknighting is a suckers game and I learned to look for a relationship where the woman would be smart and stable enough to deal with that shit themselves and not need to be rescued.
In a similar vein, one of my many girlfriends of many decades worked at one time as mental health/social worker assisting police attending domestic abuse situations. A common problem was the woman that had just gotten the crap beaten out of her and called the police would attack the cops when they tried to arrest the man.

I just did a search and :

Second Law of Female Journalism:
The types of sexual relationships advocated for by female journalists tend to follow closely with the sort currently purchasable by their sexual market value.


The Third Law of Female Journalism:
Hostile writing by women about White men as a category tends to be an expression of their yearning to be ravaged by one, compounded by their frustration over remaining unnoticed as an object of such desire.

A common refrain seems to be that men should be more active in checking bad behavior. That is highly debatable. I think it would be best to defer to Paglia on this one; the onus shouldn't be on men to police bad behavior. Isn't that just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic (Patriarchy)? Women should return to the norm of standing up for themselves and being assertive. I have a feeling the majority of women have no problem with male sexual aggressiveness. I know for a fact that a lot of women love being catcalled. But if they have a problem with it, it's their duty to do something about it.

Plus, and this is a significant point, most feminists don't understand that white knighting, particularly if you don't know the offending party, is rather dangerous for men. Chances are you're going to get into a fight, or in the wrong circumstance, a bullet through the heart. Women are actually in a much better position to shut an unwanted advance down than a male stranger. Of course, there are limits. As for intervening in a violent attack, ideally a man should do whatever his capabilities/courage allows.

But for mundane situations where a horny man approaches a women, you'd have to have a screw loose to think its your business.
Over the years I have come across the following laws:

Dalrock’s Law of Feminism:
Feminism is the assertion that men are evil and naturally want to harm women, followed by pleas to men to solve all of women’s problems.

Sailer’s Law of Female Journalism:
The most heartfelt articles by female journalists tend to be demands that social values be overturned in order that, Come the Revolution, the journalist herself will be considered hotter-looking.

Very important to get that last bit in the correct order! Anyway, in present-day terms, "Dragoons" are cavalry with a massive chip on their shoulder, a superiority complex and a slightly snobbish outlook on life. There are conventional forces, there are special forces then there are cavalry.

There were some slaves held by whites before Canada became a country but in small numbers compared to elsewhere in the Americas. The indigenous people held slaves, mostly captured in raids on other tribes but there was also some trade involved.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_Canada
In 1802, a whiteman John Jewitt was enslaved by the chief of a local Nuuchalnuth clan and after being freed wrote an interesting story (well worth a read) about his misadventure.

This seems to be the new viral marketing strategy. Corporations are a bit late to the game, but it still works. Give it a year or two and it won't anymore. People are catching on. You've got to hand it to Becky Watson, who can now be identified as a small-time pioneer of the technique: Create controversy/outrage; spur people to "bad" behavior. Profit off it. Not that I think it was some grand strategy. I think she kind of stumbled upon it, but she did have that one invaluable talent: she knew a good thing when she saw it. Credit where credit's due.

So you dismiss out of hand the comments from claimed P&G employees/ex employees about the "woke" company ethos? Are you certain that this is not simultaneously a cynical "threat" farming exercise and a political statement by the company? Do you dismiss the idea that a significant proportion of the corporate work environment is becoming a minefield for the non-PC and for non-apologetic whiteys? If these things are happening then it would seem dangerous to ignore propaganda reinforcing bullshit about toxic masculinity. Men who push back against this are being called insecure by white knights, IOW the usual shaming crap from feminists. The frog is close to being boiled already.

The conspiracy bit about this being done to get men to vote like women is VERY retarded. PJW first rightly points out that rapists and creeps aren't going to be convinced to be better by a Gillette ad...but then goes on to argue that the "attacks" on masculinity are done to get people to change their political ideas.

Surprisingly enough, PJW is less dumb than many "red pillers" in pointing out that "boycotts" are pathetic and that the whole brouhaha is a lot of free advertising for Gillette, just like the Kaepernick shenanigans were a corporate tool for getting free ads for Nike. What he doesn't admit is that he's playing the same game, too.

Some fucker of a SM Manager will be prepared with an ‘awareness’ spiel. Ie people will remember the name Gillette long after they have forgotten why.

Live firing exercises are serious business and one of the few occasions where you unscrew your "mate" head and replace it with your "anal as fuck" head. I've lost count of the times I blew fuses with mates and resorted to screaming-skull mode. Rather that than have to explain why we lost a guy during a training scenario.

"Dry runs" are boring as fuck but we do them for a reason. Before the troops hit the ground, we conduct TEWTs (tactical exercise without troops) to rehearse commanders, give them a feel for the ground, walk/talk through the serials and to highlight common dangerous practices unique to the ground in use. These usually happen a week or so before the boots hit the ground - once the troops are in play, they're given a similar run-through (walk the area, highlight good cover/routes, talk through drills/skills etc) and we hammer safety into everything at all stages.

Hell, even the safety staff conduct their own dry-runs before the TEWTs begin.

If I had to sum up live firing in one word - from a safety staff point of view - it would be "anxiety."

Aye, it's a sad way for a soldier to go and I don't doubt the witch hunts will be lengthy, ruthless and deeply unpleasant for all involved.
Being part time, we had DS who really tripped out. I recall there was just “walk, down fire and repeat” without the full “run down crawl observe aim fire” bit AND there was prickly bastard shadowing each man.

In hindsight I think they were just happy to practice keeping us in formation and moving with the added stress of lead being sprayed forth.

I also recall the idiot who sported mysterious lumps after being caught in the field with live 5.56 rounds mixed into his ammo pouch with blank ammo. Of course both are brass - easy to mistake at night. :bjarte:

Which conjures up an ancient memory. “I have no ammunition or range produce in my possession sir!”

:dance:

Good God, man - I'm ex-cavalry!* "Tankers" (In the UK we say "Tankie" or "Coucil-house cavalry") are simply machine gun corps troops with delusions of adequacy. Cavalry are cut from far superior cloth.

Having said that, good vid, thanks for sharing. A few observations:

1) The NBC pack/CTCS on that wagon is fucked.
2) She'd get the good news - covvies down, across the breech, watch my trace!
3) Do what you're told, gunner (safety switch to "safe", hand elevate, lean over and cuff the fucker in the teeth!) - TANK ACTION! - safety to "live."

I miss my old company car...*sniff*


* Full disclosure - I was a "Dragoon" - historically, a heavy infantry soldier mounted on horseback who would charge in with the cavalry (lancers, hussars and whatnot) then dismount to knee the enemy in the bollocks and suck out his eyeballs. Very important to get that last bit in the correct order! Anyway, in present-day terms, "Dragoons" are cavalry with a massive chip on their shoulder, a superiority complex and a slightly snobbish outlook on life. There are conventional forces, there are special forces then there are cavalry.



As the saying goes - if you ain't cav, you ain't cav!
