Jerry and the folks at WEIT are watching the Democrat debates and are bemoaning the thought that Trump will get re-elected. Apparently, all the candidates are left wing nutters. If I had a Trump straw, I could drink up their tears:

I assume the usual other UK Pitter locals are on holiday as not already posted . This is from my neck of the woods in Waltham Forest. Literally a mile or so away.
Amazingly someone has been arrested already. Good luck on that identification parade.

Are we allowed to criticise the niqab yet? This question crossed my mind as I watched that viral clip of a niqab-clad woman hurling homophobic invective at a Pride marcher in Walthamstow in London. Surely now it will become acceptable to raise questions about this medieval garment (banned in several Muslim countries) and about the views and attitudes of those who wear it?

On one level, the footage of the niqab-wearering lady spouting anti-gay hate wasn’t very surprising. Shocking, yes, but not surprising. It’s not as if someone who covers themselves from head to toe in archaic black cloth (which, as Qanta Ahmed has said, is not in the least suggested let alone mandated by the Koran) is going to hold enlightened views on sexuality. Stop the press — religious fundamentalist is not a fan of gay sex!
"Disgusting homophobic abuse at those on Waltham Forest Pride today.

No matter what form hate comes in, we must stamp it out and say no to all forms of hate! Also, very importantly we cannot call out one form of hate but be silent/complicit on others. @GalopUK @stonewalluk pic.twitter.com/kDAFoAb8Vw

— Yusuf Patel (@YusufJP_) July 27, 2019"
‘Shame on you’, the woman shouts at the man who is draped in a Pride flag. ‘God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve’, she continued, bizarrely adding a dash of old, Alf Garnett-style homophobia to her broader Koran-inspired loathing of homosexuality. I guess this is a kind of ‘melting pot’ of cultures — 1950s-style homegrown homophobia with a dash of Eastern-inspired extremism.

The clip has caused much discomfort in woke-left circles. After all, the woke crew like gay people and women who wear the niqab. How are they meant to respond to such a public spat between two of their favourite identity groups?

What a pickle. Condemn the religious nutter and risk joining Boris Johnson in that camp of nasty Islamophobes who slag off niqab-wearers? Or be soft on the screaming lady and risk implying that it is sometimes okay to bark insults at gay people? What is an intersectional leftist to do!

Their solution, it seems, is to be more gentle with this homophobe than they would be with other homophobes. The local MP Stella Creasy says she was ‘gutted’ to see this clash — a tellingly passive word.

The Independent’s coverage dances around the fact that the woman was wearing a niqab, informing its readers that the abusive woman was ‘dressed in black, with a black veil and black-rimmed glasses’. Okay. Can we be more specific? She was wearing ‘clothing commonly associated with female followers of Islam’, the paper said. We got there in the end! Strikingly, the Indie report doesn’t mention the word ‘niqab’. Perhaps it thought mentioning the N-word would set off the Islamophobes.

And is it only me who finds it pretty alarming that the victim of the woman’s abuse says in response to her, ‘We still love you’? Another Pride attendee can be heard informing her that ‘fascists’ say the same thing about her as she is saying about gay people. Why such leniency? Why didn’t they tell her to eff off, as they undoubtedly, and rightly, would have done if it had been any other kind of anti-gay hysteric?

All you have to do is imagine if the person shouting anti-gay abuse had been a big white bloke with an east London accent and loads of tattoos and a St George’s flag hanging from his back pocket. Do you think Ms Creasy would only have been ‘gutted’ in that instance? Or that the Twitterati would have been as cagey as they have been in response to the niqab loon? Of course not.

And herein lies the problem. It is precisely the obsessive ringfencing of Islam from normal levels of scrutiny that encourages some of its adherents — some, note — to cling to backward views.

If your views are never confronted, and in fact are protected from confrontation by an Islamophobia industry that depicts virtually any criticism of Islam as a hate crime, how are you ever meant to rethink what you think? To change your mind? To analyse your beliefs and try to move forward to a more progressive view of the world?

If this niqab-wearing woman thinks she can waltz through her community hurling backward religious hatred at gay people, should we really be surprised? After all, she lives in a country where even criticising the niqab itself is a no no, as Boris discovered when he rightly called it an oppressive and ridiculous garment, and also rightly said it should not be banned.

Boris was right. The niqab is ridiculous and oppressive. It is also anti-social, a big, black ‘screw you’ to contemporary society. It is a hostile garment, declaring the wearer’s fealty to archaic religious values and her disdain for the liberal, licentious society she lives in.

It shouldn’t be banned, of course. Women must be free to wear it. But by the same token the rest of us must be free to say that it is a stupid and offensive thing to wear and that the Waltham Forest homophobe is probably fairly typical of those who wear it.

Things have now been made worse by the involvement of the police, who are investigating this woman’s alleged hate crime. We don’t need more authoritarianism. We don’t need more speech-policing. We just need a more open and critical public sphere in which everything, including Islam, is up for debate.

Well, if I'd been there, I'd probably have been the one arrested, since I would like nothing other than to rip that absurd costume off that shrieking woman and leave her butt naked in the street. "Niqab-clad homophobe" is an oxymoron if there ever was one. This is the thing the Left doesn't quite get. They get that wearing a MAGA hat is a statement of belief, but not that the same is true of religious garb. (?)

If anyone wants to prove me wrong, show me the niqab wearing women ("she-burritos" as I call them) that celebrate gay rights? I'll recant immediately.

From PZ's Skepticon post:

Yeah, right. Apparently PZ is the last person to realize that his countenance is everybody's stereotypical image of the lurking overcoat pervert. Go ahead, PZ, I dare you. You'll be reported and ejected from Skepticon faster than you can say Latrodectus tredecimguttatus.

Mehta should be happy about this. Humanism is just a misogynist way to say "feminist". If he cared about women, he wouldn't adhere to a sexist label.

So it is okay on Twitter to coordinate attacks on government facilities and personnel, but NOT okay to point out Pinochet was a scumbag.

I'm sure he is very aware that his middle-aged toxic male whiteness is a legitimate cause for concern for the oppressed and he'd relish the opportunity to apologise for it. It'd have nothing to do with his personal creep quotient.

Interesting times. The YouTubers Union has joined forces with a giant German trade union, and their lawyers have a strategy to encourage YT to be more transparent about its rules, and to allow some actual participation by the 'partners'. They use the threat of a lawsuit to determine if YT is actually the de facto employer of content creators, and if it is found to be so it will be very, very expensive for YT.

It's come to this. Comedian Mark Hughes has a Super-SJW parody character. That character did a 40-minute interview with Jessica "Wax My Balls" Yaniv. We learn so much from Jessica. Did you know that she has both a vagina and a penis and that both are circumcised?

What do you want to bet that Jessie will speak at the next Skepticon?

Exactly. Most men enjoy getting their genitals waxed by someone who doesn't know how to do it and doesn't have the right kind of wax.

Someone banned from Twitter writes an interesting article about how a racist paedophile runs circles around Twitter. Now, we all now that Yaniv is simply using the same tactics that many of the banned (SJW feminists) once used on others. No sympathy, but it illustrates what a mess Twatter has got itself in. As soon as it caved around the time of the Milo affair, it was a rolling stone from there.

Oh, and guess who seems to be a friend of the racist paedophile - yep, Muskrat.

I'd recommend waxing over shaving, as shaving can cause ingrown hairs which later develop into quite painful pimples...or so I've heard...

Perhaps this would be better explained with a picture.

I may have mentioned this before buuut...until you've had a "Russian hummer", you've never lived! That's two (or more) ladies of the night, a tube of "Deep heat" and a pair of handcuffs. I'm sure you can imagine how it plays out.

When I was young and an avid cyclist there was a period where I used to use depilatory cream on my legs. One day while letting the cream set for a bit I wound up getting some on my sack. If anyone ever gets really drunk and thinks putting Nair on your scrotum might be wild or good for a laugh ... don't.
My first job was as a house surgeon to a urologist at Northwick Park Hospital. We took part in a trial of Nair instead of pre-op shaving. It didn't end well (especially considering the locations of the intended surgeries) and the upshot of it all is that pre-op hair removal is no longer performed by either method. There are fewer wound infections if the bacteria living in the skin or in follicles are not disturbed and brought up to the surface.
As an aside, I became progressively more disturbed by the disappearance of pubic hair over the years. Our responses to secondary sexual characteristics are deeply instinctual, and I don't see why anyone would think it helpful to remove one of them so as to appear to be pre-pubertal. It's like choosing to wear no lipstick and have no curves and still hoping to be as attractive as before. Perhaps it's one of the mysterious mechanisms by which our birth rate is declining as the population density increases, along with young people having less sex, choosing impossible gender identities, being gay, choosing to be childfree, and so on.

Still, not a good argument against shaving ass hair.

Spoken from experience. I just recovered from what can only be called an ass rash on steroids from hell. I've never felt pain like that before. I figured it can't be a good thing to have all that bacteria catching detritus back there. I'm feeling much better now. TMI? You're a doctor; you'll get over it.

I really like the EconTalk podcast-- the host & guests speak in plain language, without sacrificing subtleties.

This week's episode is an exception: the guest is one of the first females granted tenure at Harvard, in 1981. (total quota hire)
She's a gibberish-spouting Oprah guest... halfway between Elizabeth Warren and Marianne Williamson.

Normally, I'd say she's promoting a new book called 'Surveillance Capitalism'.

But, using her own analysis & tone, I'd say she's part of a shadowy capitalist cabal-- with no government oversight-- exploiting the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution (a document founded on slavery). This cabal isn't content to disseminate the information contained in the book-- they actually want to reprogram the minds of the readership-- into agreeing with what THEY want you to think.

Her cabal TRACKS how many people buy the book, and use that information to CONTROL THE FUTURE of which books they bring to market-- selling exclusively to those wealthy-enough to buy the book. LEAVING-OUT the HAVE-NOTS!

And she's taking this Inception/Matrix agenda into CYBERSPACE, via a so-called podcast interview-- which is actually a digitally-actuated means of blasting you with her agenda, whether you listen to it in the car, the gym, the toilet, or with the most precious resource we have: our children's children.

Toward the end of the interview, she literally describes how Pokemon Go is a CIA project designed to make you hungry from walking-around/ then herd you to McDonalds..

The podcast host pretty-much just repeats-- over & over-- "I'm sympathetic to your concerns, but what's the harm of any of this?" Then-- off she goes again & again... tossing word salad.

Right from the first question: "What is surveillance capitalism?"... she begins by saying she'll define it, then doesn't. She offers to describe it-- then doesn't. She says it's different from historic capitalism-- but doesn't say how. She say's it 'emulates' historic capitalism, but doesn't say how... except to say that high volume mass production was perfected with the Ford Model T... and Surveillence Capitalism is exactly-like that... because high volume mass production wasn't LIMITED TO producing ONLY Ford Model T's... likewise Google, Facebook & Amazon don't limit their user-data-tracking to counting the number of clicks on advertising links... they do other stuff, too.

If you're a connoisseur of cringe... if you consider bullshit doubletalk a form of beat poetry... if out of touch, ineffectual Boomer hysteria is music to your ears... I recommend...

Been lucky myself in that all the long term relationships I've been in the women tended to go for the 'natural but well maintained' look. But not all relationships are the same. If one party prefers the shaved look and the other likes it natural, why not split the difference?

Now I'm reading an amusing review of her book. Actually, it's a positive review of a negative review of her book!
https://blaynehaggart.wordpress.com/201 ... apitalism/
The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is a polemic: it argues a single side of a case forcefully with every means at its disposal. I would go so far as to say that any success it enjoys will be due almost completely to Zuboff’s use of compelling metaphors to illustrate the data extractivism practiced by surveillance capitalists. Check out her description of how people fit into surveillance capitalism, which just floored me:

I think of elephants, the most majestic of all mammals: Big Other poaches our behaviour for surplus and leaves behind all the meaning lodged in our bodies, our brains, and our beating hearts, not unlike the monstrous slaughter of elephants for ivory. Forget the cliché that if it’s free, ‘You are the product.’ You are not the product; you are the abandoned carcass. The ‘product’ derives from the surplus that is ripped from your life (page 377).

The Age of Surveillance Capitalism is designed to elicit maximum revulsion. Comparing Facebook users to abandoned elephant carcasses highlights the extent to which Zuboff is playing on our emotions to make her point. At its best, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism succeeds better than anything else I’ve read at getting across the threat posed by surveillance capitalism.

Using vivid language is a perfectly appropriate means to make a point. It becomes problematic, however, when it shades into hyperbole. When that happens, one’s argument stops relying so much on reason, logic and evidence – the foundation of an academic’s authority – and begins relying on how it makes the reader feel.

I understand that people are trying to set up reserves, so that the native fauna displaced by severe deforestation have a chance to survive.

I think the 'bald as a coot' style was copied from porn - where it became popular as it allowed a more fulsome display of the anatomy in question. (Even for men). Most people are able to distinguish adult from prepubescent genitalia - so I'm not so sure there is a slippery slope from a particular preference for a bodily hair style to pedophilia (or the other modern woes). And there might be push back from the ethics committee when setting up double-blind studies to try and find out.

Is there a particular set of rules as to what parts of the body are acceptable for depilation - and which aren't? I'm guessing the theory is that the face, ears, arms & armpits, legs & toes, back and buttocks are all valid targets. But that anything crotch related should be left in it's natural state or minimally groomed at best.

In any case - I little research shows me that hair removal (at least for women) has been going on for some time...

So has anyone watched Years and Years(BBC, HBO)? It's by Russel T. Davies and it's the Russel T. Daviest thing he's ever done. It's about a British family and it follows them about 15 years into the future. There appears to be just 3 heterosexual couples left in Britain, and 2 of those are interracial. The family consists of Gran, Lesbian Granddaughter, Gay Grandson, Crippled Granddaughter, Evil Straight Grandson, Black Wife of Evil Straight Grandson, their biracial transhuman daughter(most interesting character of the lot), and Lesbian Granddaughter's transsexual Asian donated sperm baby. Crippled Granddaughter is so Handicap Pride that she turns down medical treatment that could restore the use of her legs.

Anywho... Emma Thompson plays a Marine LePen/Donald Trump hybrid and turns the UK into V for Vendetta. The resistance is run by Lesbian Granddaughter and is otherwise populated by POC.

I should've hated this show but I really enjoyed it. Partly for cringe, but partly because as over the top as it was, it was really well done.

The comments there are further evidence that the leftist elite are living in their own little fantasy world.

Impeachment hearings will "educate" the "woefully uninformed" peasants, because everyone watches C-Span and Rachel Maddow just like us, amirite?

I think this is a very good exploration of the differences between the Teutonic and English speaking philosophies. Although slightly simplistic, it provides what I think is a clear explanation of the attitude of Germans like Aneris and their Nazi projections. Sargon is a far smarter commentator than people tend to give him credit for despite his tendency to underestimate opponents.

I'm not even positive that there is no convincing evidence against Trump, but if someone wants me to believe that then they'd need to provide some references first. "Its obvious and you're a Trump loving moron if you disagree" is not a sufficient argument.

I'm in the same camp. Whilst I'm the first to admit to a near total ignorance of the yank political game, from the outside looking in, it appears to be a blatant smear campaign against the guy. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are skeletons in his closet, he's only human, but the way the MSM and the left relentlessly ignore the good things he's done only cements the hatchet-job optics.

As stated before, I'm not exactly a fan of the guy but I rabidly cheer him on for the lulz and to piss-off the loony leftists, sour-faced progressives and SJW's etc. I firmly believe the guy could find a cure for cancer and the left would twist it into a crime.

Fucking dozy yanks...

This old Moby music video is set in the bar where I spent the previous decade. Halfway thru, the music stops & the guy in the fedora tells the puppet-character to settle down. That guy is real-- he dressed like that & worked there, for 2 decades. He died this week. He was inside a museum-ish public attraction, after hours, & fell 4 stories. He lived a couple days, was coherent in the hospital, thought he would recover after serious surgery, but he died.

We were 'close' from having experienced many nights at that bar alongside each-other, tho not-really 'together'. We shared a certain perspective like two flies on the same wall. We acted like old-friends, but we didn't intentionally 'keep up' with details of each-other's lives, beyond whatever mutual friends happened to offer. Often he wasn't very communicative-- he usually answered questions like "how are you?", "what's new?", "how's business"... with the same few vague hippie-ish catchphrases... I was never sure if they were his profound mantras or if he was blowing-me-off. He'd say "it's all perfect, kid, everything's perfect."

Occasionally, when he did have the urge to share news-- about a stupid decision by the bar owner or physically throwing-out an unruly customer-- things one wouldn't blab to just-anyone-- he'd tell me freely, knowing I'd understand the context & I wouldn't repeat it to the wrong ears. He was an old-fashioned native new yorker, which made it easy to play by his rules-- if he muttered something out of the corner of his mouth, it automatically sounded like "mum's the word, seeee?" All I had to do was act like we were in a prohibition gangster movie & my role was clear.

At first, I heard he fell while helping his family do some type of work (classic irish catholics who owned once-famous bars, now closed). Then I heard he wasn't with his family-- he stopped in an abandoned building in Jersey to watch the sun set. He had a quiet, hippie, eastern-mystical, marijuana side... so this made sense. I heard he was startled by security guards & fell. Then I heard loose speculation that maybe he wasn't alone, but his companion fled & he covered-up for them by not mentioning them in the hospital. I wanted that talk to stop-- before it morphed into fingerpointing at some random possible person who miiight have abandoned him in pain. Then we learned he was at the public attraction. Maybe trespassing, or-- I have my own private (but totally unproven) theory-- about who might have had legit access & let him in. I haven't told anyone-- don't want to add to the nonsense.

There's very little mention of the incident online. But a police source described his fall using the word 'apparent' followed by intentional self-harm. Fucking cop-- what are you basing that on? Is it nothing-more than anytime a guy falls a long distance with no-other 'apparent' cause, then he 'apparently' was suicidal? I don't find that theory impossible-- but I have huge reasons to doubt it. A news source extrapolated from the police source-- and used the word "jumped" in their headline. The article's comments section contains random strangers-- 1000% certain that it was suicide-- speculating he was "off his meds", or that he was a jerk for offing himself in a public family location, or that wasn't a jerk-- he was just too crazy-suicidal to think about how his actions would affect others. Ironic-- the cop & the news & the commenters & the gossipers-- aren't thinking about how their words affect his friends & family & his memory. Now there's this shadow of suicide over a death which may be no-such thing. One commenter attempts to defend him-- but their comment is a different sort of speculation. That person is trying to be 'helpful', but it's not helpful to allege there was something negligent about contstruction work being done at the venue-- and that he wasn't alone when he fell. Maybe it's true & this person has inside info... but a few sloppily worded sentences in a public comments section is hardly the right place or right way.

Oh, the Mueller report definitely states the Trump campaign tried to collude, but was too inept to pull it off. And that Trump obstructed justice on multiple occasions. But you can't sell that story. It's ovah -- move along.

The leftist elite, living in its own self-reinforcing bubble and clueless as to how ordinary folks live or think, is fast approaching Heaven's Gate level suicidal certainty.
