Ah Yes... my memories of Sunday Assembly coming back to me. I was very active in the Detroit Sunday assembly. I directed the music, held the band practices, hosted and ran the book club. But, the people who were self appointed leaders were SJW retards. They would spurn members who didn't have the correct way of thinking. They were Fem bot creeps. I tried to include everyone which was a wild mix of libertarian leaning atheists, and woo woo spiritualists, and religion haters, etc. The theme was that they were "radically inclusive" but what this turned into was "mega-progressives only". One guy was told to leave because he posted a picture of himself on Facebook in his father's US Army Ranger uniform. The bitches that "ran" thing were scared.... and I'm like... "He is proud of his father's service in the military" and they concluded that he was a threat. Haha.

I think we lacked wise leadership. I don't know where this wise leadership comes from. Ministers are trained in wise leadership.

But, really, when it is all done and said, secular groups simply lack cohesion. They have no sense of shared commitment. I went to a Catholic wedding last week. I have lots of Catholic friends. and... while they are all very different, they have a sense that their shared spirituality makes them part of a club... a cohesive family... a family with some foundational beliefs.

That's stupid even by Mehta's low standards. As a Jewish kid growing up in rural Oklahoma, going to Temple wasn't practical - the nearest one was ~30 miles away. However, my parents thought I needed to be exposed to some religion, so I went to the nearby Methodist church, which was (a) overtly evangelical, (b) very into the whole "God is love" deal, not to mention (c) Entirely welcoming to, albeit a bit puzzled by me.

This is not to say there weren't plenty of hateful Christians around. There were. For example, the (white) Southern Baptist church where my wife grew up wasn't exactly the loving sort. And on an individual level, my Christian Scientist third grade teacher was a particularly nasty piece of work who didn't hesitate to bring her religion into class. (And in doing so put me on the road to atheism.)

But by claiming that decent Christians don't and didn't exist, these fools are alienating a lot of people who aren't comfortable with Trump and with the right message could be persuaded not to vote for him.

Jesus wept.

I think the lesson here is that you don't go to war unless you are fully committed to fighting and possibly going down for your cause. I don't know what McInnis had in mind for the proud boys when he started them, but what he effectively did was to start a protest movement that rallies against feminism and promotes "western chauvinism". Its hard to imagine that he wouldn't expect pushback for that, and with the proud boys out holding rallies and scrapping with Antifa, it's easy for the media to find a place in the narrative for them. Interestingly, the proud boy ideology actually isn't all that extreme, it basically seems to be that western culture is awesome, that there is some value in traditional gender roles, and that anti-racism and feminism are extreme reactions to non-issues.



If he had limited himself to running his mouth, or being an agent provocateur he probably could have made it into the "intellectual dark web" circuit. The fact that he started something that looks like a gang (I don't want to get into semantics about whether it is or not) probably makes him a bit more radioactive.

IMO his big mistake was failing to embrace the proud boys and run with his creation. He was going to lose all his lefty friends and get character assassinated by the media the second he started that group, and quitting the proud boys was never going to help his case. Now he looks like a whiner who isn't committed to his own beliefs. Alternately, his mistake was creating the proud boys at all if he didn't want to go full, balls-to-the-wall culture warrior.

That's not quite it. DM is that All Grievances are Equally Valid, with the caveat that they (of course) don't really think it anyway. (That could be said of most of their views. They're ready to jettison most anything when the opportunity arises to leverage something, anything, for power and influence. So trans grievance can be put on the front burner because they're the most vulnerable minority.) If DM were actually All Positions are Equally Important, then that would be an argument for Freeze Peach, and they're sure as hell not going to argue that.

Like most of the principles they come up with on the spur of the moment to satisfy some desire to quash discussion, Dear Muslima is as dumb as a box of rocks. (See, for instance, Intent isn't Magic.) They work around that by ignoring it, most of the time.

In that case sarcastic and insincere are exactly the same and I shall still have no grounds for complaint in either case. But if all positions are equal, why was the Dawk made PNG for the Dear Muslima letter? Ah, I see. The some are more equal than others part. Yes. Equal if we agree, less than dirt if we do not. Got it.
The 'could' gives me a bit a wiggle room. And the 'make you sound' was at worst tone policing. As to the afterlife - alternative arrangements may be in play so I may well not have the chance to meet up with the aforementioned antecedents.

In the end I find arguments in good faith easier to follow. Though obviously they are not necessary more effective than any other sort when dealing with PZ and those of his ilk.

Apparently not when it comes to blacks, that's verboten. But blacks are notoriously stingy tippers, for one. So if you're a waitress, are you gonna bust your butt for a four-top of blacks? That particular table might not fit the stereotype, but if you heed it table after table, night after night, you won't waste your time & energy.

I shouldn't have bothered with Hastie. She's always railing about how racist America is. She lives in New fucking Zealand and once saw IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT. Give me a fucking break.

It would be ironic if the ACA succumbed to anti-science wokeness on trans issues. Some of the Atheist Experience goons are already guilty of this (the women in particular).

It is extra delicious that they are not woke enough, however, for PZ.

FUCK those in the atheist/skeptic movements who throw their rationality, skepticism, and common sense under the bus, as soon as some new anti-science fad comes along. Really, FUCK 'em. The damage they have done to any potential skeptic movement can't be calculated.

Oh. PZ, if you are reading this - go and get a fresh dog turd, blowtorch it to get it to a creme brulee consistency, and then slurp the stuff down. Go on, you fucking piece of detrius.

Women will probably have to work out for themselves if the introduction of women to women's sport will give an unfair advantage where women dominate women in these activities.

They can then act accordingly - perhaps even going as far as to ban women from women's sports.

Well, let's see what the article says:
Thanks to the threat of an English Defence League protest on 1st June 2018 outside the courthouse where Tommy was arrested, and having been previously assaulted by this group on his way into court, rapist Sajid Hussain promptly pulled a disappearing act and had to be convicted and sentenced in his absence. Rather than wallowing in a prison cell serving a 17 year term for horrendous acts of sexual abuse upon minors, Hussain remains at large and is thought by police to have fled the country
'Waah but if Tommy hadn't been arrested in the first place then there would have been no threat of the EDL turning up!'

Well, if Tommy hadn't been there in the first place...etc etc

'Waah but he was doing essential work in exposing muslim paedophiles!'

Except he
reiterated information which by his own admission is already in the public domain resulting in the “exposure” of precisely nobody
Precisely nothing was gained by TR's twattery outside the court that day, while at least one sex offender has gone on the run, possibly overseas. Again: the absolute fucking twat.
So you are now blaming Tommy Robinson for stuff other people did while he was in jail - namely the police being incompetent, and unable to stop a child rapist disappearing.

Of course, the reaction of the authorities to child rapists is 'Bail them! Bail them! Oh look, they've run away. Never saw that coming.''

Thanks to the threat of an English Defence League protest on 1st June 2018 outside the courthouse where Tommy was arrested, and having been previously assaulted by this group on his way into court, rapist Sajid Hussain promptly pulled a disappearing act and had to be convicted and sentenced in his absence. Rather than wallowing in a prison cell serving a 17 year term for horrendous acts of sexual abuse upon minors, Hussain remains at large and is thought by police to have fled the country
'Waah but if Tommy hadn't been arrested in the first place then there would have been no threat of the EDL turning up!'

Well, if Tommy hadn't been there in the first place...etc etc

'Waah but he was doing essential work in exposing muslim paedophiles!'

Except he
reiterated information which by his own admission is already in the public domain resulting in the “exposure” of precisely nobody
Precisely nothing was gained by TR's twattery outside the court that day, while at least one sex offender has gone on the run, possibly overseas. Again: the absolute fucking twat.

Well, I'll go full-circle (kinda) and link this - even though it's 100% CGI, the choreography is top-notch; lots of little "moves" that are very subtle/fast, you blink and you'll miss them.



I know it's quite long but if you watch it all, I guarantee there are one or two moments that have you cheering. Of particular note, the scene where Senya tries to rescue her daughter (Vaylin - an absolute monster force-user and total darkside psychpath in-the-making) and fights half a dozen temple guards. Pure bad-assery and the shot makes the majority of modern movies look terrible.

(jump to 18:00 if you don't want to watch the whole thing)

Obviously, the "Old Republic" setting is not well known to most people, it's very multi-layered and has the deepest lore in all of the Star Wars universe. Anyhoo, the full vid is worth a watch, even if it poses more questions than it answers. Some of the lightsaber scenes are amazing!

tl;dr:
Let’s summarise what Robinson’s antics outside Leeds Crown Court have accomplished: They’ve needlessly reiterated information which by his own admission is already in the public domain resulting in the “exposure” of precisely nobody. They’ve come close to jeopardising the convictions of child rapists, narrowly avoiding doing so by sheer luck alone. They’ve allowed these rapists to file for a mistrial and provided them with grounds to appeal their convictions. They’ve caused a serial sex offender to flee the country and thereby escape justice. And they’ve once again deprived three blameless children of their fathers company for a period of two and a half months.
The absolute fucking twat.
The serial sex offender fled when Robinson was in prison. How you gonna frame Tommy for that?

As for 'grounds to appeal', what sort of justice system is it when people are not allowed to appeal? And, of course, the appeal was thrown out of court.

I have yet to read of one case where somebody was released because somebody else talked to him outside a court.

As for concern about mistrials, when child rapist cases collapse, absolutely nobody is convicted, jailed or even charged with an offence.

All people say is ' it is such a shame'.

From my point of view anything from the 70s will always seem more contemporary than classic. So 'The Duellists' does not quite cut it (to coin a phrase).

And as for the others - definitely something to see on the big screen. Along with Shogun Assassin of course.


But speaking of classics here's that sex-crazed Australian (not Brive, the other one) vs Sherlock Holmes.



I'm no great judge of technique - but I understand that Basil Rathbone had quite a reputation as a swordsman. Flynn's reputation was for equally physical pursuits - though of a different nature.

75th anniversary of Stauffenberg 's et al. assassination attempt on hitler.

Unlike with Tresckow on March 13ths, FB even let me post a photo of Stauffenberg. The algorithm probably identified him as Amanda Marcotte.

I'm a massive Kurosawa nut, this is my #1 sword fight scene of all time:



Assuming you've never seen the film, Kyuzu, the older samrai (the winner), was a perfectionist. He was utterly devoted to the art and was relentlessly honourable in his dealings with other people both on and off the battlefield. Of the seven, I think he's possibly my favourite although you'd need to put a gun to my head to force the decision.
Two of my personal favorites.

Heh - that was epic. Never seen the movie, added to list.

Obviously, Mifune's portrayal of Kikuchiyo was legendary but I'm torn between the two.
