Peaceful March on Google, postponed after Alt Left threats

I mentioned last Thursday (before Charlottesville) that a 9-city March on Google was planned for Aug 19. Just to follow up, it’s postponed:

The Peaceful March on Google has been postponed due to credible Alt Left terrorist threats for the safety of our citizen participants.

Despite our clear and straightfoward statements denouncing bigotry and hatred, CNN and other mainstream media made malicious and false statements that our peaceful march was being organized by Nazi sympathizers.

Following the articles, credible threats from known Alt Left terrorist groups [were received]…

We hope to hold our peaceful march in a few weeks’ time.

We look forward to the day when the human right of peaceful Free Speech is once again able to be practiced in America.

Addendum about the march’s organizers: (more…)

More Google updates

Just to round out today’s earlier post, we also have new interviews in Breitbart’s Rebels of Google series.

UPDATE – Everyone we don’t like is Raaaaaaaaaysist: CNN falsely smears the planned March on Google as a “White Nationalist”, “Alt Right” event.

To begin with, the organizers of March on Google are known to be pro-peace, anti-racist and anti-Alt Right. But they also say it pointedly, at this link.

Code of Conduct for March on Google

The March on Google condemns and disavows violence, hatred, and bigotry and all groups that espouse it such as White Nationalists, KKK, Antifa, and NeoNazis.
We will not use messages that are designed to incite anger, hate, or violence.
We will respect the law and the police and cooperate in all matters.
Any violation of these tenets will not be tolerated.
Is this an “Alt-Right” event? The answer is no. This is an event for First Amendment supporters from across the country, from all backgrounds, ethnicity, and walks of life.

CNN could have checked it easily. Instead, CNN published a complete falsehood – once again attempting to smear anyone who challenges them, or Google or the hard Left, as racists.

Hey, lefties: This is why Trump won (be that good or bad). This is why rational, honest people reject and despise the Left.

UPDATE: Peaceful March on Google is postponed, due to Alt Left terrorist threats following the CNN slanders.

Google will get worse, before it gets better

There’s a lot in the news about North Korea, but I haven’t the heart to write about that, it’s too depressing. The U.S. should have taken care of that problem 20 years ago.

So, back on Google. First, Stefan Molyneux interviews James Damore. He’s a bit snow-flakey. Molyneux almost has to hold his hand. Seriously, how could the SJWs feel so threatened?

Second, by now you’ve seen Breitbart’s Rebels of Google interviews with dissenters to Google’s left-wing, Social Justice Warrior culture. Of course you have to take it with a grain of salt; these are disgruntled former employees. Nonetheless, many details ring true to those who have worked in Silicon Valley. Put it this way, statements of Google execs and SJWs will tell us one side of the story; Rebels of Google gives us the other.

I’m not sure what goes on at Google exactly, but it sounds like they have a culture of SJW discussions (probably on Google Plus group chat and/or email) that employees can’t escape. I picture an employee signing on to discuss a work-related problem, for example, and then being spammed with HR “diversity” announcements, or political sniping injected by the SJWs into every discussion “just because”.

Anyway, here are the interview bits that jumped out at me: (more…)

They’re coming for the smart people

I knew this day would come. In trying to make successful people feel guilty, Social Justice Warriors are ready to take us to full-on _Idiocracy_ or _Harrison Bergeron_. The SJW columnist Dan Williams says:

There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with… below a certain threshold of intelligence, there are fewer and fewer opportunities… Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.

His claims are contrary to science. There are plenty of things you can do, to enhance your intelligence or to damage it. For example, some studies show that frequent marijuana use can permanently damage your memory, concentration, and overall IQ. Whereas those things can be preserved or enhanced by healthy lifestyle, or some forms of education or problem-solving. So yes, your intelligence is something you “have significant control over”, long-term.

Williams’ claims are also contrary to my life experience. Throughout my life, I have consciously worked long and hard at becoming smarter and doing better things than I would have otherwise. It was no accident. It used to be called “self-improvement”.

But I suppose that, if you’re a modern-day lazy pot-smoking type of “smart” person – someone who was born talented and has indeed drifted along, doing little or nothing to forge your unique self, and falling into a six-figure salary all the same – then Williams’ comments might make sense to you. You would be too ignorant to know better. And you would need the SJW Religion for its cheap grace, or as a way to live with yourself.

From the comments: Heliotrope highlights another significant quote from Williams’ piece:

Any of us could have been born the unluckiest person on the planet, which, by definition, picks out precisely one person. But we all have the privilege of not being that person. We are all privileged by comparison.

This highlights the religious aspect of SJW-ism.

  • “Privilege” is the new Original Sin, the guilt-from-birth that no one escapes (except Williams’ hypothetical “unluckiest person born”, maybe).
  • PC “Social Consciousness” is the new Redemption (the cheap grace that I mentioned).
  • Revolution would be the (longed-for) Apocalypse or Last Judgment.
  • and Social Justice, the (unattainable) New Jerusalem or Kingdom of Heaven.

If UK/Europe are doomed, this is why

Cross The Line in the UK is a Twitter ad campaign to help people “spot the signs of right wing extremism”. Signs such as being young, doing political actions, and going to the gym:

Here’s the thing: Young, politically-involved gym-goers may vote for Brexit (gasp!), but they commit no terrorist attacks, in the UK or elsewhere. Unless they’re Muslim. If they’re Muslim, they do it all the time, killing and maiming people.

Does the UK have ad campaigns to help people spot the signs of Islamic extremism?

The more things change, the more they stay the same

Lefties have been swarming on Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The most famous comment, which you have probably heard, was a Daily Beast writer calling her “Butch queen first time in drags at ball” – but there have been many others. And no mainstream voices have yet objected.

It reminds me of 2016 when Azealia Banks gave a detailed call for Sarah Palin to be gang-raped – and left-leaning Twitter did nothing to Banks, despite her clear violation of Twitter’s policy against inciting violence on others.

All of this highlights how the Left is more-than-guilty of what it accuses others of. Lefties are hypersensitive to racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, etc. because too many of them are racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, etc. Not all (I know some who aren’t); but many. They know it in themselves. Knowing it in themselves, they assume that others (righties) must be even worse.

ADL jumps the shark, becomes a Defamation League

The Anti-Defamation League published an article, From Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate. Just one problem: The article is a disgrace. It may target some actual racists, but along the way, it smears several citizen-journalists who merely challenge the Left, believe in the West or in Christianity, and/or support President Trump.

Presumbably to avoid libel lawsuits, the ADL tries to distinguish between “Alt Right” and “Alt Lite”. It says “Alt Right” is about “overt racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, misogyny, and anti-Muslim bigotry”; while “Alt Lite” would only be about the “misogyny and xenophobia” part. But the false guilt-by-association is still there. And even the lesser charge of “misogyny and xenophobia” is a smear on some fine and ever-improving journalists.

Of the ADL’s “Alt Lite” list, I know the work of three fairly well, and none of them deserve the ADL’s smear-labeling: Jack Posobiec, Mike Cernovich, Milo Yiannopoulis.

If the ADL is zero-for-three on those whose work I do know, they are probably wrong on the others whom they listed in the “Alt Lite” section. (Note: I’m not defending anyone in the “Alt Right” section, none of whose work I know at all, except perhaps for Nathan Damigo whose organization I denounced, here.)

To take one example, Jack Posobiec is fluent in at least 2 foreign languages (Mandarin and Polish are the ones that I’ve seen him speak), and here he is at Auschwitz with his girlfriend, praying for the Holocaust victims:

Jack Posobiec and girlfriend at Auschwitz, praying for the victims

So much for his supposed “misogyny and xenophobia”. Which, I can say, are not in his work either – except that he just happens to be a reasonable and articulate Trump supporter, pro-Israel Christian, and opponent of the Left.

It seems the Anti-Defamation League has itself become a hate group. They would rather defame good people than refute the statements or ideas that they disagree with. It’s sad to see a once-important organization fall so low.

Students troll teacher who totally does not see how she might deserve trolling

Some of the students, allegedly, festooned the classroom with pictures of Trump, a map of his Electoral College win, “Obama – you’re fired”, and a respectful, accurate statement of Trump’s policy positions.

All pretty innocuous, except for one thing: someone made fun of her gap teeth (which they should not have done – whoever it was; note that we cannot make any assumptions about whom).

Her overall response? Calling her students “racist”. Repeatedly.

I wonder how many times she tried to use her position to cram Social Justice Warrior politics down her students’ throats? I can’t know but, reading between the lines, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did it 24/7.

It’s Like They’ve Got Something to Hide

San Francisco’s BART Subway system has suffered numerous recent “flash mob” attacks wherein groups of “Teens” rob train riders using threats of violence and actual violence. BART is refusing to release any surveillance camera video of the attacks. Why? This is why:

“Release of the videos ‘would create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.’”

OK, so what is everybody now going to just assume about the race of the perpetrators?

The Guns of Europe

The last few years, amidst Europe’s ongoing terrorist attacks and Muslim-influx crisis, European gun sales have surged. Article from January 2016:

Gun sales have jumped 350 per cent in Austria amid ‘unease’ over increasing numbers of migrants following the Paris terror attacks…

The final months of 2015 showed increases in gun permit applications, while dealers reported huge demand for self defence weapons such as tasers, pepper spray and blank firing-guns.

It comes just months after shotguns were reported to have sold out across the country as residents became increasingly paranoid about refugee numbers.

Article from August 2016:

Applications for gun permits have gone up significantly in Switzerland, Austria and the Czech Republic. In places with stricter gun laws, such as Germany, non-lethal guns and pepper spray have become alternatives.

“There’s no official explanation for the rise, but in general we see a connection to Europe’s terrorist attacks,” Hanspeter Kruesi, a police spokesman in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen, told Reuters.

Czech Republic’s President saw the light:

President Milos Zeman used to advocate gun control, but called for easier access to guns in July [2016] following the terror attack in Nice.

“Earlier I spoke against possession of large amounts of weapons [in the hands of the people],” Zeman said in a July interview with newspaper Blesk. “After those attacks, I do not think so any more.”

And last week, the Czech Republic began to create their own version of our 2nd Amendment:

Czech lawmakers have passed legislation in the lower parliament that would see the right to bear firearms enshrined in the country’s constitution…

The legislation was passed with 139 deputies agreeing to the amendment to the constitution with only nine deputies voting against. The amendment will now be considered by the Czech Senate where it will require a supermajority of three-fifths…

…the Czech legislation reads: “Citizens of the Czech Republic have the right to acquire, retain and bear arms and ammunition.”

It’s rare to have that right in a country’s Constitution. Hopefully, it’s about to become less rare.

Unfortunately, Germany is busy turning its guns against its own People’s free speech:

German lawmakers approved a bill on Friday aimed at cracking down on hate speech on social networks…

Among other things, it would fine social networking sites up to 50 million euros ($56 million) if they persistently fail to remove illegal content within a week, including defamatory “fake news.”

“Freedom of speech ends where the criminal law begins,” said Justice Minister Heiko Maas, who was the driving force behind the bill…

Social networks also have to publish a report every six months detailing how many complaints they received and how they dealt with them.

This is fascism: the merger of Business and State, in which the State commandeers Business to achieve the State’s aims – such as, in this case, the enforcement of political purity and consensus. Looks like Mark Zuckerberg has no problem with it.

Are the Germans going to target ordinary citizens’ protests against Germany’s insane Muslim refugee policy? Sadly, yes:

By “right wing extremist” what German authorities really mean is anyone who questions the immigration policies of the Europe, or thinks differently than the general population.

The article cites the relevant sections of Germany’s criminal speech code – that sound good on paper, except they are so subjective that the authorities can, will and do use them to punish any speech they don’t like.

I’m not sure – my German is quite rusty – but I think that in this clip, Germany’s Vice Chancellor is saying that Muslim refugees are more German than the Germans who would object to their presence, and who should therefore be locked up.

The Ultimate Progressive Dream

Posted by V the K at 9:20 am - June 23, 2017.

The Chinese Communists are instituting a new system for monitoring the social behavior of all of its citizens. Each citizen will be assigned a score based on such behavior, and that score will determine everything in your life.

Imagine a world where an authoritarian government monitors everything you do, amasses huge amounts of data on almost every interaction you make, and awards you a single score that measures how “trustworthy” you are.

In this world, anything from defaulting on a loan to criticising the ruling party, from running a red light to failing to care for your parents properly, could cause you to lose points. And in this world, your score becomes the ultimate truth of who you are – determining whether you can borrow money, get your children into the best schools or travel abroad; whether you get a room in a fancy hotel, a seat in a top restaurant – or even just get a date.

This is not the dystopian superstate of Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report, in which all-knowing police stop crime before it happens. But it could be China by 2020. It is the scenario contained in China’s ambitious plans to develop a far-reaching social credit system, a plan that the Communist Party hopes will build a culture of “sincerity” and a “harmonious socialist society” where “keeping trust is glorious.”

The government hasn’t announced exactly how the plan will work – for example, how scores will be compiled and different qualities weighted against one another. But the idea is that good behaviour will be rewarded and bad behaviour punished, with the Communist Party acting as the ultimate judge.

Let me be clear, the left absolutely adores China and adores it precisely because of its authoritarian Government. And they would love nothing more than to have this kind of system — the state monitoring your behavior constantly and dinging you for any act of political incorrectness. It would be the ultimate tool of social control.

Think I’m exaggerating? Ask Brendan Eich. Or Travis Kalanick. Or Curt Shilling.

This article actually came out last fall. I wonder why there hasn’t been more discussion of it.

We’re a Society of Puritan Scolds

Here’s the scene: An attractive young woman attends a public event wearing a very short skirt. A man notices. Result: Outrage.

Aly Raisman found herself in an uncomfortable situation during Wednesday night’s NHL Awards when an aging hockey great made a leering comment about her legs.
Raisman, the 23-year-old gymnastics star, spoke about sharing the stage with “one of the old greats,” former Los Angeles Kings center Marcel Dionne, to present the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, an annual award for an NHL player who displays — irony alert — gentlemanly conduct.
The 65-year-old Hall of Famer then took the banter to a creepy new level.
“Thank you, thank you,” Dionne began. “And I am excited to be on stage with three-time Olympic medalist. Look at those legs.”

OK, a little creepy for a guy to be checking out a chick young enough to be his granddaughter, but she seems to have handled the incident with more grace than Post reporter Jaclyn Hendricks . Feminists claim — and therefore, the social justice left that dominates our culture must agree — that “the male gaze” is equivalent to rape. By “the male gaze,” they mean normal men doing what normal men do and checking out attractive women. Mainly, the women who object to “the male gaze” are not often checked out by normal men.

Can we be honest and just admit that every time people get outraged over something stupid, it diminishes the things we should actually get outraged about. If a feminist gets just as outraged over an old man checking out a woman’s legs as normal person should get outraged over like, I don’t know, actual rape… it diminishes the latter.

So, I guess, the point is, we have to stop getting outraged over minor stuff. Although that’s not how the internet works. You’re supposed to show outrage over trivial things because it shows how enlightened and “socially conscious” you are. And if you don’t show sufficient outrage, the Sensitivity Police might come after you.

After the jump is something extremely offensive. Deal with it as best you can.

Manphobia hits new lows

In left-wing Berlin, Germany, we now have a crackdown on advertising that would dare to depict women as “nurturing, happy to do housework, beautiful, addicted to shopping” or men as “rational, aggressive, technologically gifted”.

Get it? Ads must feature unpleasant, unattractive, angry feminists disposing of pathetically weak and foolish men.

Boys must not be shown as “liking sports, the colour blue, and playing with technology”. According to these German feminists(!), girls are so stupid and deficient by nature that when they “see images of heterosexual housewives, the consequence is that they cannot imagine themselves outside this framework.”

Meanwhile in Madrid, they banned ‘manspreading’. Because God Forfend that a man on a bus should sit a bit comfortably. Crowder explains it to women and gets some to admit to the existence of female privilege.

Steve Scalise update

Per The Hill this morning, he has been upgraded from Serious to Fair condition.

I didn’t see this coming: Bono gives Scalise a shout-out. Meaning something positive.

“You’ve been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria,” Bono says on-stage in the video. “We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful. We hold them up, as love holds us all up.”

…U2 performed Tuesday night in Hyattsville, Maryland, at FedExField, home of the Washington Redskins. FedExField is located about 19 miles northeast of Alexandria.

But they’re still stuck on a motive for the shooting. ABC’s article is totally silent on it. The Hill’s article touches on it in a way that disguises the truth:

The FBI said Wednesday that the shooter, who died shortly after sustaining injuries in a confrontation with police, worked alone and that the incident had “no nexus to terrorism.”

The agency also confirmed Hodgkinson had a paper list containing six lawmakers’ names, although they said they would not classify it as a “hit list.”

So, the FBI is politically correct? Yikes! Reminder:

  • The “six names” were a hit list.
  • They were all GOP – and specifically, the (rare) anti-Establishment, pro-liberty type of GOP known as the House Freedom Caucus.
  • The failed murderer, James T. Hodgkinson, was a “Bernie bro” who wanted to kill them for political reasons and terrorize conservatives.

From the comments: James reminds us that Bono has kinda-sorta been getting sensible for awhile. Nice to see!

How fake is CNN? At least this fake (part 2)

Just to follow up on part 1 about CNN openly staging a fake protest that they’d wanted, here’s a nifty list.

YouTube Preview Image

Like all such lists, it suffers from being anecdotal and agenda-driven. And (in this case) badly mis-titled. Some (hi rusty 😉 ) won’t like it that the list comes from Cernovich.

But I’m interested in what’s in it. I have seen most of these instances myself, at one time or another. I think it’s silly to trust CNN. If people ask me why, here are some of the examples I’d point to.

  • The time CNN warned that it’s somehow illegal for ordinary citizens to look at the leaked DNC and Podesta emails. (It isn’t. So, look all you want.)
  • The time they had a camera man pose as a random guy on the street and broadcast his pro-Hillary rant.
  • The time CNN lied that Loretta Lynch had “recused herself” from any decisions on the Clinton e-mail investigation. (She didn’t. She should have.)
  • The time(s) CNN spread the fake “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” meme. (Shot of an entire CNN panel doing it.)
  • The time CNN, broadcasting from a studio with blue screen and fake wind, pretended it was on-location in the Gulf War.
  • The time CNN claimed that Muslim terrorist bombings in Europe are done by “false flag” right-wingers.
  • The time Jake Tapper told a Navy Seal he was interviewing, that his all buddies had died for nothing.
  • The time CNN let a guest claim that “rogue cops shoot black people for sport”.
  • The time a CNN anchor expressed joy at Sarah Palin’s children being assaulted.
  • The times that CNN edited #BlackLivesMatter activists, who were calling for rage and violence, to make it appear as if they were somehow peaceful.
  • The time a CNN anchor praised a cop-killer as “brave and courageous”.
  • The time CNN had 2 reporters in the same parking lot in Phoenix and faked it, split-screen, to pretend they were in different locations.
  • The time they did a voter focus group and openly stated the precise words that they wanted a certain voter to say next.
  • The many times CNN cut a guest’s satellite feed if they strayed too far from CNN’s preferred narrative.
    • The guy they cut for mentioning Jesus.
    • The time they cut Bernie Sanders after he jokingly referred to CNN as Fake News.
    • The time they cut a guest for mentioning Wikileaks.
    • The time they cut a reporter who started talking about Hillary’s negatives or “vulnerabilities”.
  • The way that, when CNN cuts a guest who strayed too far from their preferred narrative, they pretend it’s somehow accidental.

The list is incomplete of course. It didn’t even get around to some stuff like:

And more that I could probably find, if I searched GP archives.

It takes awhile

…but sometimes there’s justice.

Remember that UVa “campus rape culture” hoax that bubbled up in 2014? Recent news is that Rolling Stone will pay settlement damages to the fraternity they accused.

A source involved at the national level with the fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi, tells TheDC that Rolling Stone will pay $1.65 million to settle the defamation suit…

In the piece, “A Rape on Campus,” Erdely relayed the story of Jackie Coakley, a Virginia woman who claimed she was brutally raped by a group of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members during a party in Sept. 2012.

Separately, a UVa dean also got damages:

The magazine’s decision follows a settlement in April with Nicole Eramo, a University of Virginia associate dean who was also smeared in the article, which was written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely…

Erdely portrayed Eramo as dismissive of Coakley’s case. But it was later revealed that Coakley not only fabricated the attack by the fraternity members but that Eramo took her allegations seriously at the time she made them.

A jury in Virginia awarded Eramo $3 million in damages — $2 million from Erdely and $1 million from Rolling Stone.

I don’t know what has happened to the original accuser, Jackie Coakley?

While I’m at it:

Diversity Hire Praises Muslims for Inclusiveness

Posted by V the K at 11:19 am - June 11, 2017.
Filed under: Political Correctness

The London Police Commissioner is proud of the fact that the Islamic Supremacists carrying out the Quran’s commandment to “kill (unbelievers) wherever you find them… And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah]” chose such a diverse, multi-national coalition of victims.

The commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police says the nationalities of the eight victims in the terrorist attack on London Bridge tell a proud story of London’s unique makeup.

“It’s desperately sad and poignant but among those who died is someone who’s British, there are French, Australian, Canadian, Spanish,” Cressida Dick told The Associated Press in an interview Saturday.

“In terms of our witnesses that we’ve spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity.”

She said longtime Londoners value this international aspect of the British capital.”

The victims represent diversity, those who carried out the attacks, not so much.

The left is, of course, nonchalant about terror attacks and more concerned about the increase in “Islamophobic hate crimes” after the recent wave of jihadist attacks. So, after dozens of people have been murdered or injured by jihadists, what horrible attacks are Muslims suffering (according to mosques and imams who are reporting the alleged hate crimes).

Sufia Alam, the manager of the Maryam centre at the East London mosque, said it had had reports of Muslim women being verbally abused on buses. Ash Siddique, the secretary of the Al-Madina mosque in Barking, east London, said women coming to the mosque suffered attacks, including one being grabbed around the throat at a bus stop. “We’ve had a number of ladies who have been verbally abused and a number of ladies who have been spat on. We’ve had a couple of telephone calls, physical threats – ‘we are going to attack you’ – and that sort of thing,” said Siddique.

OMG! A spokesman for a mosque has unconfirmed reports of people being rude to Muslims. How terrible it is to suffer from unconfirmed reports of people being rude to you. (Why do I suspect when he says “a number of ladies,” the number is actually 0). And remember, when he complains about “ladies” being assaulted (no men? how curious) he’s speaking from the perspective of a religion that teaches that women are to be subjugated and domestic violence is widespread and accepted.

I’m sure the Police Commissioner will be all over this “hate crimes” business*.  According to the Mayor of London, mass casualty terror attacks are something Londoners are just going to have to live with. But people making rude comments to Mohammedans will not be tolerated.

* Unless it turns out like that “wave of hate crimes after Donald Trump’s election” that all turned out to be fake, in which case it will be quietly forgotten by the media.

Bat-wielding vigilante mobs punish dissenters

At a U.S. college, mobs of neo-Nazi alt-Right fascist thugs have been roaming the campus, smashing windows and bashing people they disagree with. Kristallnacht!

Except that it’s Evergreen College and actually, it’s mobs of leftie fascist thugs roaming the campus, smashing windows and bashing people they disagree with.

Weinstein, the professor at the center of the sh*t storm, is claiming some students were even hit, but says they won’t report it to the police.

Why is this not national news? One guess…

A few other items for you that touch upon the theme of immoral left-wingers and/or watching left-wingers’ heads explode, while the media focus strangely on other things.

Bonus item: France says no trace of Russia hacking Macron.

The head of the French government’s cyber security agency, which investigated leaks from President Emmanuel Macron’s election campaign, says they found no trace of a notorious Russian hacking group behind the attack.

About a month ago, I had noted the eagerness (and absurdity) of U.S. media in accusing Russia.

How fake is CNN? At least this fake

CNN carefully stages some “good” Muslim demonstrators:

YouTube Preview Image

CNN thinks it did nothing wrong or unusual.

The group of demonstrators that was at the police cordon was being allowed through by officers so they could show their signs to the gathered media. The CNN crew along with other media present simply filmed them doing so.

First of all – NO. Believe your own eyes, watch the video! CNN poses and directs the people in the shot. CNN doesn’t “simply film” them.

Second, is it normal for CNN to pick and choose which tiny group of demonstrators they will over-report on, to fit CNN’s pre-determined political script? I think they’re saying it is.

Their refutation doesn’t refute. CNN fakes a non-event, then explains in essence, “Oh that’s what we normally do. What’s the problem?”

UPDATE: There’s also that time Don Lemon posed his own co-worker as a random, man-on-the-street Hillary supporter (though Lemon disclosed it afterward).

The CNN reporter propaganda artist above is Becky Anderson. Her piece makes a point that we all WISH were true: Large numbers of Muslims rejecting the terrorist losers. Too bad it isn’t.

Anything to avoid saying ‘Muslim’

The first step to solving a problem for real, is: Naming it honestly.

As Mark Steyn points out (hat tip V), our leftie-globalist-academic Superiors want us to believe that “sowing division” is what’s wrong with the endless stream of mass murders by Muslim terrorists. Because the desirable opposite is “unity”, led by those same Superiors.

Thus, they subtly equate their critics with Muslim terrorists. If, say, you’re a free-market populist who rejects the elite consensus, you’re as bad as a Muslim mass murderer. Because you’re also “sowing division”.

It’s similar to how the Left represents “hate speech” (i.e., criticism or rejection of the Left) as a form of violence, unprotected by the First Amendment. Under such insane terms, the Left is allowed to attack you with physical violence because they are only protecting themselves from the “violence” that you were about to think, or say.

Re: the London attacks, British media says they were done by “men of Mediterranean coloring”. It has a courtroom precision to it, which is nice, but also don’t say Muslim.

London’s Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, did at least call them “cowardly terrorists”. And Prime Minister Theresa May slammed the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism” – but then went back to calling for “unity”, plus Internet censorship. As opposed to, say, deporting the UK’s known Muslim radicals and improved vetting of Muslim immigrants, or better enforcement of the UK’s existing laws against inciting violence.

It’s beyond question that the murderers were doing it for Allah. One can only hope that the good people of the UK will wake up.
