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.

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.

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.....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

http://archive.is/wip/hUnwz

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'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).

Apparently, you got that 100% right. 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.

I don't think I've ever been put off a show as much as I was by the Watchmen premiere, which came off as if written by an almost comical stereotype of the dimwitted Hollywood liberal. In their view, since Rorschach was right wing, and all right wing views must be centered around white supremacy, then the followers of Rorschach would be white supremacists. It also signaled that under the guise of being an alternate reality comic book fantasy, it was going to unfold as a Ta Nehisi Coates fever dream.

However, I've heard from various surprising sources that it wound up being quite good, and not as race centered as it first presented itself as. So, I've been waffling about giving it a shot. I've certainly been able to enjoy quality TV and movies which had politics I've disagreed with strenuously. But especially with so much quality entertainment available, the 180 dB clarion call it put out that it wasn't for me is one I'm inclined to heed.

You decide if you want to keep watching after that. It's not getting a second season. It got cancelled. Personally, I hope the property is put on ice for a long while until this "woke" period we're in blows over. (Funny how they chose the word "woke" as their keyword to rally around, when "redpiĺled" was already a thing. Seems it's a theme. None of us are truly ever awake, apparently.)

Just watched the first episode of Watchmen Wokema'am - it's utter garbage. Here is a handy data-burst version of the entire script so you don't need to endure the fucking thing.

"White men are evil!"

Seriously, that's all there is to it.

Fortunately, there's other-stuff going on in the story. Such as all of old-man-Ozymandias's antics involving servants & a manor house. A romantic trip to Vietnam. An excellent tough-broad FBI agent. A sexy redneck with PTSD.

The Watchmen comic took formulaic elements of a superhero comic book circa 1987... and applied more adult-depth and real-world anxiety... than fanboys were used to seeing. A charitable interpretation of the Watchmen teevee show... is that that begins as a formulaic teevee cop show: complete with unrealistic badass loose-cannon cop driving a flashy car... and even complete with Don Johnson (the ultimate tv-glamour-cop). And then the show messes-with the formula... by introducing a lot of weird shit. Someone out there never read the Watchmen or saw the 2009 movie... and when they stumbled-across this show... they had a trippy Phillip K. Dick experience.

After finishing the series, I looked-up the actual Tulsa riot. Wikipedia and black-history-month sez... that there was a Black Wall Street in Tulsa. And a bunch of poor jealous whites attacked it. I was amused to see how this doesn't fit in nicely with today's sjw propaganda. After all, "Wall Street" is EVIL... so were those white rioters a righteous OCCUPY TULSA movement, punching-up against the 1% ?! haw.

Also... the riot was sparked by an incident involving a 19 year old Black guy in an ELEVATOR with a 17 year old White girl. #GuysDontDoThat #BelieveWomen #MeToo #OhWait

Today was Martin Luther King Day. I spent the morning at a nursing home, with black-caribbean & asian staff... on a floor of chinese patients. Downstairs there's a floor of hassidic jews, self-segregated. We put up decorations & brought cake for everyone on the chinese floor, to celebrate an old lady's birthday. Long ago, in another country, she was a mobster's wife with a lavish lifestyle. And all that's left of her showy life... is some bright red plastic tablecloths, balloons, $50 for a big cake, and paper cups full of dry Corn Pops cereal to snack-on (approved by the nurses as a kosher snack). Most other patients' birthdays go un-remarked. So this is flexing one's status, the shoddy nursing home. All her grown-kids showed-up. She cried.

In the dayroom-- where the patients are rolled in wheelchairs to eat lunch & watch a big tv... there were MLK things on TV. A choir of black & jewish kids singing together. That fit nicely with the birthday party. Then there was Tyler Perry talking to Whoopi Goldberg about the success of his 300 acre movie studio, where Marvel's 'Black Panther' was filmed-- on a former Confederate army base. That interview was right-out-of the Watchmen TV show. But, ok fine, whatever.

Except I question a network's Martin Luther King Day tv celebration being hosted by the cunts from The View. I really don't need to be lectured by Joy Behar-- about how Trump is 'divisive' because he said there were 'good people on both sides' at the Charlottesville shitshow. I don't think highly of the newfangled white nationalist alt-right. But... if we were living in the Watchmen world... where Adrian Veidt... a billionaire amalgam of George Soros/ Jeffrey Epstein/ G. Gordon Liddy/ Elon Musk/ and Russell Brand... had launched a false-flag attack on NYC, killing millions, then installed Hollywood Liberal gun-grabber racial-politics-panderer Robert Redford as president for the next 30 years... fuck, yeah, I'd be way more on board with the rednecks in Rorschach masks' ideology.


Sorry, MLK, but... 2019's Pride MONTH overdosed me on these big bland woke gentle-mass-indoctrination ceremonies. By the way, I don't think the SJWs have thought-ahead: The Democrat presidential primaries wrap-up in June... during the LGBT PRIDE month of mandatory flag-waving. Even pro-gay people are gonna feel worn-out & over-it when the Democratic convention happens, 2 weeks later.

It's curious, really, how mainstream media outlets are just given carte blanche to lie about public figures like this with impunity. They can't even excuse it by saying it's an op-ed; they signed off on this. It's bloody shameless is what it is.
It's Nullification, and yes, it's extremely alarming that such anti-democratic notions are given a platform and respect by MSM.
This kind of article isn't surprising at all. It's been said, half in jest, that the left are trying to make being to the right of them or opposing them illegal. In a way the impeachment obsession is a manifestation of this. Take the invocation of executive privilege for instance, something that was always accepted as a right and expected to be used. Now we are told using it to defend the president or the integrity of the administration amounts to obstruction of justice. Whatever was accepted as standard practice before now amounts to a crime if it obstructs the Democratic Party's Holy War. One could understand on some level if they at least had some consistent moral framework to work from, but what was OK for a Democrat to do in the morning is a crime if done by a Republican after lunch worthy of hand wringing appeals to the conscience.

Well I had to look up Evanescence. Sounds likes she's almost as hard to work with as Carlos Santana.
