WEIT has a new feature, a discussion thread. Topics include antifa, nike sneakers, and immigration. Just had to share this exchange:
open border advocate wrote:Why do you THINK we dropped the atomic bomb on the gooks and not the white Germans? Coincidence? The war was basically over on both fronts at the time.
me wrote:The Trinity test explosion took place on July 16, 1945. Germany had surrendered on May 8, 1945. CORONET, the planned invasion of mainland Japan, was tentatively scheduled for March, 1946

They've really come crawling out of the woodwork for the immigration thing, haven't they?

Tommy Robinson found guilty of contempt of court again today at the Old Bailey. This country is rotten to the core.

This is the problem I have lately with encountering stupid people. I either find myself wanting to troll them or I feel compelled to teach them something. Of course, they will not learn.... so I should not even bother to try to teach... and trolling, while fun, is a giant time sink for me. I just need to walk away from this whole scene.

Interesting trivia (well... I found it interesting). On Iwo Jima there were 20,000 Japanese defenders. When the battle was over there were only 200 Japanese left as prisoners. All of the rest.... 19,800 were dead. The Japanese were trained to never surrender. This is part of their culture and they also believed the Americans would just torture them if captured.

My dad was a coxswain on an LCVP that landed on Iwo Jima. He would have been in the front of the invasion of the Japanese mainland had it occurred. He would have likely been killed. I think I am probably alive today because of the A-bombs dropped on Japan.

My dad told me a story that sticks with me. I was discussing with him about how brutal the Japanese where while we were watching a movie together. He told me that when the Marines first started fighting the Japanese that they took more prisoners until they found that most Japanese would allow themselves to be taken prisoner so they could set off a grenade in the middle of the ship hospital and kill our doctors etc. "After that"...he said... "We just killed them all."

My dad is 94 and has lost most of his memory. He now drifts back to WWII all the time. He is astonished every time I tell him we are fiends with the Japanese now, and when I remind him of the Marshall plan. He just stares at me and says "Really?.... I can't believe that.... we are friends with the Japs?.... I can't believe that!"

This is an actual photo of LCVPs at Iwo Jima. My old man could actually be in the photo I suppose. I don't know exactly how many LCVPs were used in the battle. About 20,000 marines landed and each boat carrys about 30. I know they did more than one run.... maybe 3 runs in the initial landing.... so probably something like 200 boats I guess. So, with 3 boats pictured there is about a 1% chance my dad is in this photo.... haha.

Because he jeopardised a Trial in progress that had reporting restrictions
that meant the accused could have gone free ?
Sounds like the Justice system working there.

My uncle married a woman from Hungary - who got out with her family around 1956 (or just after).

Her father fought in WWII, though he would not be considered an ally. In fact, in the non-modern sense he would properly be considered Nazi-adjacent. He was a really nice guy from my recollection. Towards the end of his life he went blind and was having nightmares about his military service.

Can't say what I would have done in the same situation - it seems like luxury not to forced into the decisions he had to make at the time.

They had already been found gulity you fucking pillock, they were going back to court for sentencing. Robinson did nothing wrong, if you had followed the lasts two days court procedings as I have you would realise this. This isn't a case of Robinson like him or loath him but the British justice system doling out punishment for someone they don't like. It stinks of corruption. No other journalist has ever been treated this way for doing far worse, which was pointed out in this kangaroo trial. If you fail to see that then I'm afraid you are a moron and there is nothing more to say to you.
Soften your hard on for Robinson and look at the wider picture here, he is clearly being singled out because he pisses the establishment off, he highlights things they want brushed under the carpet (he dares to critique Islam) they see him as a dangerous agitator and want rid. They are shit scared that his message resonates with thousands of people and is gaining traction. He must be silenced.

Will any of these journalists now be brought before a judge for 'harassing' the defendent, How is this any different? Don't forget he hasn't been sentenced yet so the case is still ongoing.

Er... one difference is there aren't any reporting restrictions on this trial , try to Keep up , Sherlock!

Journalist? :lol:


The courts decide when the restrictions are over, not Robinson, if only he had you on his legal team.

Seems that he ticks the box. Is he a good journalist? That's a different question.

Personally, whilst I dislike the guy (he's a bit smug for my liking and his football casual background is very questionable), I admire his backbone and willingness to tackle touchy subjects head-on. He may not go about it in the smartest way(s) but at least he gets off his arse and gives it a go.

This latest legal witch-hunt is a joke; if they can do it to him, they can do it to anyone they want to disappear.

That statement alone tells me you have done no research at all of his trial these last two days. There were admissions by Leeds court officials that they completely fucked up and failed to notify if the reporting restrictions were in place. TR and his team asked several times but found no one who knew yet he still erred on caution.
What you are failing to understand is that the restrictions did not include reporting on what had already been allowed into the public dicourse, this is all TR did and was proved in court. Filming defendents who had already been found guilty outside of court grounds is not contempt, again, that's all he did.

I am no fanboi I assure you. I'm of a similar feeling toward Robinson as Bhurzum.

That'all be the reporting restrictions that every other actual journalist abided by but somehow TR didnt get the memo.
And supposedly erred on the side of caution by :

1.breaching the reporting restriction,
2.filming and streaming the video
3.confronting defendants outside court and live streaming it.

and remember the restrictions were not for this one trial but 3 linked trials so the end of this trial did not mean the end of restrictions.
The first trial began on 8 January last year,
TR was arrested and Jailed for the contempt in May , the restrictions were not actually lifted til October when all 3 trials had completed.
Only then could the verdicts of all 3 be reported:
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/c ... 92176.html

Oh and there's also the small matter of 5 of the defence lawyers citing Robinson's coverage as a reason to drop the case because jurors might have seen it.
Thankfully that didnt happen.

But of course regardless of the above, you and Tommy are entitled to have your very own definition of what constitutes contempt.

He loved telling me his war stories cuz his son was a pacifist. He was still bent out of shape that Hungary had lost so much territory after the war. He also taught me how to say "Magyar Orzag", which means "Hungarian Republic", and "Lofus", which means "horse dick." His accent in English was so bad, we usually ended up speaking German.

His wife, who he met in the US, was also from Hungary -- Transylvania. Her family fled through the woods from the Russians. Her sister was shot running right next to her. She loved me too, so I always got invited over when she made stuffed cabbage rolls.

But jeezus, Hungarians are moody bastards.

I read that in the old Imperial Austrian army, the Hungarians made the best NCOs, cuz: 1) they were moody bastards; 2) Hungarian had more curse words than the other 14 languages combined.

I highly recommend you read the Cecil Parrott translation of The Good Soldier Svejk by Jaroslav Hasek. You can get a good working copy on Amazon for about 5 bucks, and it will be five of the best dollars you have ever spent.

I work with dozens of Hungarian engineers since our electronics engineering center is in Budapest. I have the following observations to share:

1) They only have about ten first names... Zsolt, Zultan, Jozsef, Imre..... and a few more.

2) They have a pessimistic view of everything (at least compared to Americans and West Europeans).

3) They don't know how to sell things. Our customer review meetings are a nightmare. My joke is that every time a Hungarian comes into a meeting dressed in a beautiful suit they tell our customer they have a hole in their sock. The only thing they find worth talking about is a problem topic. They NEVER tell a story about something positive.

4) They have a edgy kind of humor.... rather dark.

5) They always exaggerate the negative (unlike Americans who tend to exaggerate the positive).

6) They never provide an estimate about anything. They have to know a fact before they can talk about a topic.

Other than that.... haha.... I really enjoy working with them.

Seems to me there is a voluntary refusal by much of British media to report on anything that might show the sons of Allah in a poor light. They certainly don't need a court to issue reporting restrictions to fail to inform the public what's going on.

John D - I just gave my son (29) his grandfather's war diary to read. He describes himself as a failure in the introduction because of the moment he felt he'd had enough on the beach on D-Day. Up to that point he'd been the kind of keen young soldier who volunteered for everything, and kept it up through Blitz bomb disposal, North Africa, and Sicily. But seeing an incompetent and brand new 'instant lieutenant' getting the men he'd been with all along killed on Gold Beach made something snap. He decided he wasn't going to volunteer any more, but keep himself and his men alive as best as he could. Which he did until he met a butterfly bomb at Nijmegen, and it wasn't his problem anymore. But the rest of his days he felt badly about those men on the beach, and it amazes and saddens me that he felt himself a failure as a result. In retrospect, he clearly had what we'd call PTSD now.

The experience certainly changed him and became the central feature of his life aver afterwards. Anyway, I hope the boy reads it and understands a little of it.

Livestreaming outside the court building was not breaching the reporting restriction in itself, he would only have been breaching them if he had spoken about events that had not already been reported on and were already in the public domain. He didn't.

Asking the defendants outside of the court building how they were feeling about the virdict again was not breaching reporting restriction or comtempt of court as he never accosted them nor blocked their way nor was he threatening them nor did he ask them specifics about the case and nor did he follow then onto court property. The area he was in is not part of the court but a public area. He had every right to ask them how they were feeling.

The reporting restrictions had been relaxed enough for their names to have been released. TR got them from the Huddersfield examiner and the BBC's website.

He has been wrongly convicted of contempt of court TWICE now. Reporting restrictions don't mean you can't report that the trial is taking place or you can't talk into a camera OUTSIDE of the court. I fail to understand how you can't see that.
I will say no more on the matter. Off on a trip in a few hours so won't be around.

as he never accosted them
Jeez! Now you're just making stuff up. Do you really want me to post the dictionary definition of accosting?
approach and address (someone) boldly or aggressively.
"reporters accosted him in the street"
synonyms: speak to, talk to, call to, shout to, hail, initiate a discussion with;


Oh he only "talked to a camera outside the court " - if only.....
I look forward to you schooling the Judges on what constitutes contempt if it goes to appeal.

John D wrote: Interesting trivia (well... I found it interesting). On Iwo Jima there were 20,000 Japanese defenders. When the battle was over there were only 200 Japanese left as prisoners. All of the rest.... 19,800 were dead. The Japanese were trained to never surrender. This is part of their culture and they also believed the Americans would just torture them if captured.

My dad was a coxswain on an LCVP that landed on Iwo Jima. He would have been in the front of the invasion of the Japanese mainland had it occurred. He would have likely been killed. I think I am probably alive today because of the A-bombs dropped on Japan.
The Japanese command also described Russians as subhuman and ready to rape/demoralize the nation. They talked young pilots into Kamikaze. Let's just say it sounds like there was a lot of psychological manipulation of the Japanese forces. It would not have been good to be a young Japanese man in the 1940s. They had two ways out: capitulation to the Russians or the Americans, and propaganda made neither palatable. Into that crucible Truman sent the A-bomb, which I will always believe was an act of pure evil. There was the pablum of "a million dead American servicemen". Probably utter bullshit, designed to ease consciences. The Japs were ready to capitulate, with or without the emperor. We probably dropped the bomb for a combination of immoral reasons, not least of which to impress the Russians.

John D - I just gave my son (29) his grandfather's war diary to read. He describes himself as a failure in the introduction because of the moment he felt he'd had enough on the beach on D-Day. Up to that point he'd been the kind of keen young soldier who volunteered for everything, and kept it up through Blitz bomb disposal, North Africa, and Sicily. But seeing an incompetent and brand new 'instant lieutenant' getting the men he'd been with all along killed on Gold Beach made something snap. He decided he wasn't going to volunteer any more, but keep himself and his men alive as best as he could. Which he did until he met a butterfly bomb at Nijmegen, and it wasn't his problem anymore. But the rest of his days he felt badly about those men on the beach, and it amazes and saddens me that he felt himself a failure as a result. In retrospect, he clearly had what we'd call PTSD now. He only ever looked relaxed when he was with another veteran. They wouldn't talk about it to each other, but just felt, I suppose, that they were in the company of someone who got it. Oddly, he talked to me endlessly about his war, and yet my older brother says he never spoke of it to him. Maybe he needed to get it out as he got older.

That is a normal trajectory for a soldier. Soldiers start out all gung ho and afraid of letting themselves and their mates down. After a bit of combat they bond and are better soldiers for their experience. Eventually they get jaded and feel that they've earned the right to hang back and let others take up the slack. Without the peer pressure driving them as much they and with the cumulative effect of extreme stress they can start to lose their bottle. Montgomery made a mistake in insisting that his soldiers from North Africa be in Normandy when they were actually past their best. Napoleon's Imperial Guard at Waterloo were probably at a similar stage.

The raping part would have been true.

There was the pablum of "a million dead American servicemen". Probably utter bullshit, designed to ease consciences.
Considering the Western Allies suffered 750,000 casualties from D-Day on, a million casualties, against a fanatical Japanese enemy employing mass kamikaze attacks and poison gas, is not an unreasonable estimate. There would've also been many millions of Japanese deaths, including civilians who'd been brainwashed into committing suicide (which they did en masse on Okinawa.)

Do you consider the fire-bombing of cities for the specific purpose of killing civilians -- which the US did vs. Japan, and the US & Britain did vs. Germany -- also immoral and evil?

I think the thing is likely to be a dogs breakfast - but the phrase 'dirtbag left' is starting to trend as a movement.

https://www.spiked-online.com/2019/07/0 ... woke-left/


nb I've also heard tankie YouTuber 'Vaush' refer to himself as the same. In his case he specifically rejects civility and is actively pro-violence against those he identifies as 'fascists'.

Yes, of course. There was a gradual escalation of ruthlessness. The Brits were generally opposed to bombing civilians (at the start). Americans kind of liked the idea, and it didn't take much to convince Churchill. By the end of the war everyone was doing it. Tit for tat isn't a great moral argument. The most that can be said for justification was that it was an escalation that had to be met to stay in the game.

Was the A-bombing of Japan racially motivated? That's a harder assertion to prove. There was probably some component of that, given the racial attitudes of the time. I think it made it an easier "sell" to the American public. I doubt it was a major factor. Mainly I think it was a new toy we wanted to play with; we wanted to show the Soviets who was boss, and Japan had the misfortune of coming up on the short list.

Allied troops slipping and sliding over human entrails slogging it out with the Nips probably weren't so convinced about imminent surrender. People were dying horribly every day and the allied soldiers had no reason to believe that imminent defeat would do anything other than increase Japanese desperation. There was a real danger of military and civilian revolt after the Japanese surrender. The article I've linked mentions a typhoon which hit Okinawa in Oct 1945 when forces were concentrated for the invasion, an event which would have crippled the invasion forces. The war was very far from over, not least in the minds of the Japanese.https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/ar ... ed/376238/

As an indicator of the Japanese mentality, there's an incident in John Master's book ,"The Road Past Mandalay", where a British soldier looks down into a foxhole and sees a Japanese soldier sitting on top of an aerial bomb ready to detonate it. The Jap does nothing because he's waiting for a tank and is summarily shot.

A contradiction I've seen so many times from SocJus cultists: Mockery and fear. I would think they're mutually exclusive, but apparently not.

My gut reaction to this was that the conversation was staged, because the man is such a perfect internet feminist bogeyman - "feminazi whore". Really? The man's behaviour is so absurd any normal person would have ended the conversation the moment there was any question of giving out a home address.

Nearly all the replies feature the usual 'nice guy' mockery and pearl-clutching.

It doesn't sound right to me and frankly looks more than a little like everyone involved knows it's not remotely serious. Inform the police, job done, surely? Or alternatively, drag the conversation out for longer than any rational person ever would so you can screenshot-dunk it for internet likes.

Stranger Things 3 avec spoilers

Eric Weinstein recently said -- that when Google first appeared-- it was like we all received a new sense or superpower. Like a new eye. Or access to a massive library which indexed all sorts of information.

But the providers of Google have decided not to let us use our new power as we see fit. So now Google is a censor or an editor-- designed to filter what we're allowed to see, encouraging only the opinions They see fit to allow.

Likewise-- the first season of Stranger Things humbly offered to entertain us... hoped & begged us to like it-- make it popular-enough to renew for an additional season. We were free to choose whichever characters we wished-- as our favorites. Enjoy whichever aspects suited-our-fancy. But now it's Season 3. Stranger Things is an established Hit Show. And it's time for our Hollywood betters to tell us what we're Supposed to Think.

Welcome to the Upside-Down. The other side of History. The time After Trump was elected & Stranger Things was a hit & that first award-show season afterward was endless virtue-signaling damsel-swooning from woke anti-trump award winners. Including the cast of Stranger Things (mostly CHILDREN) drafted into an acceptance speech by actor David Harbor ('Chief Hopper')... which advocated the political violence of punching people you disagree-with politically. On one fist-- the actor said his speech didn't actually single-out any specific political group or policy for punching. On the other fist he told Vanity Fair that he was referring to punching anyone who 'advocates' genocide of an entire race or group of people. ((Personally, I think it's ok to punch anyone who actually ~conducts~ a genocide. But 'advocates'... ???... maybe not.))

So now-- in Season 3-- it's not ok to adore the original cast of mostly-boys. There are some new affirmative action hires. Ass-kicking name-taking no-nonsense black & lesbian females, to put those awful toxic-masculinity males (shrimpy sensitive nerd boys) in their place. Also-- Season 3 features RUSSIANS INTERFERING WITH THE ELECTION of the town mayor. And Chief Hopper writing an impassioned speech on a scrap of paper identical to the one in that anti-trump awards show. But in the fictional version-- a female character actually wrote the speech For him. You go girl.

The SJW stuff isn't so intrusive that it ruins the show... but it reduces the show from being as good as it was previously-- to a clunkier propaganda vehicle. It's now more like actual 80's b-movie schlock... on the level of Fright Night or Iron Eagle, rather than top shelf stuff like E.T. or Back To The Future.

After watching the season-- I clicked on a few blog-y articles. Apparently Generation Z really-are a bunch of namby-pamby bedwetters who can only handle hearing pedantic bedtime stories in which their designated-victim-groups get special-rainbow-points for being so special. No dramatic setbacks or unfair twists of fate allowed.

CHECK OUT this male feminist dweeb, "We need to talk about Hopper"...
https://www.indiewire.com/2019/07/stran ... 202155392/

I like all the comments which call-out the writer for saying Hopper is gross & ugly... and all the females are beautiful & perfect... and He Doesn't Deserve Them (i do)... typical loser player-hater white-knighting.

Or Variety's official youtube review... a gay soyboy & an adult woman who talks like a teenage Joss Whedon character... unable to handle that a single-father cop-dad who witnessed death & destruction... might be a big surly. But you-go-girl to the gay character for being gay.
https://tinyurl.com/yx9r6fxw

I think we live in a time when some people Enjoy being pedantically talked-down-to in oversimplistic terms. And told who who cheer & boo-for... by Ocasio Nanny Authorities. And some of us could do without the attempted-mind-control.

Another thing I read-- after watching Season 3-- was a bunch of articles about Coke re-releasing 'New Coke' as a promotional stunt, in tandem with Stranger Things. The people who wrote these articles weren't alive when New Coke came-out. They get it all wrong. One said New Coke was a 'Limited Edition' flavor which was only available for 73 days in 1985. Limited Edition? Others said New Coke was reputed to taste terrible-- but today's reviewers were shocked to discover they liked it. They had no firsthand memory that the Take The Pepsi Challenge ad campaign was such a big success-- that Coke felt compelled to respond with a product which would fare better in blind taste-tests. Not-realizing that people's attachment to the iconic eternal taste of Coca-Cola was more-important than whether it was techinically 'better tasting' than the competition.

The same people who are too young to understand what New Coke was about-- are too young to understand anything-else about 1985. Another thing the Generation Tidepod reviewers can't-stand... is that the Soviets in Season 3 are portrayed as threatening military-uniformed enemies of the US of A. It's not nice to depict them that-way. Pee pee poo poo.
