The Great One ain’t letting no spiders of black widow or golden orb walk around on him. My balls ain’t this big.
So to summarize, this guy won a case in court against someone for selling his art without permission, so now he thinks he can police the internet in a similar way. Its almost as if there is a difference between using someone’s work and earning financial compensation for it (Copyright infringement) and using someone’s working for satirical purposes (Fair use).
I’m sure the alt-right will be happy to do as he says and this won’t result in more Pepe edits or anything.
The left-wing activists behind the anti-conservative riots at Berkeley have ties to one of the nation’s most prominent pro-pedophilia organizations.
The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary — more commonly referred to as By Any Means Necessary or BAMN — is one of the militant leftist groups waging a campaign against conservatives and Trump supporters in Berkeley. The group’s planned aggressive demonstrations against conservative commentator Ann Coulter and the students coming to hear her talk led to the cancellation of Coulter’s speech this week due to safety concerns.
BAMN’s parent organization worked directly with the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) in the years just before it founded BAMN, according to NAMBLA documents reviewed by The Daily Caller. In addition, a member of that parent organization said to have founded BAMN is an admitted member of NAMBLA, which she has described as the victim of a “witch-hunt.”
As the back cover of my cheap paperback copy of George Orwell’s masterpiece dictates…
1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell’s prophetic, nightmarish vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. 1984 is still the great modern classic of Negative Utopia.
I recently revisited this book after many years of absence, and while reading along I highlighted many quotes and passages which struck me as relevant to the “social justice” zeitgeist of the late 2010’s. To little surprise, I discovered that what the political left seeks in this day and age is well and truly like the negative utopia described in this classic story.
Here are twenty passages from the book which many of us have to suffer through everyday in “it’s the current year!”
Oh, you consider yourself a liberal? I see.
In that case, welcome to the consequences of your actions.
Welcome to the world that you wanted to see created. Oh, what’s that? You wanted it created for everyone else but not for your own family members?
Many men come to the red pill because they have nowhere else to go. They have hit rock bottom. That’s when they finally realise that they are not above it all and that the rules of the game apply to them as much as they do to everyone else.
It is extremely common in the manosphere to hear a man utter the words, ‘I never thought that it would happen to me’ or ‘I never thought that she would up and leave me like that’.
That’s when the real learning begins.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) has finally admitted that the “gender pay gap” is caused by women’s choices.
In a recent article on the gender pay gap, AAUW Senior Researcher Kevin Miller concedes that the pay disparity between women and men isn’t caused primarily by discrimination, but rather by the personal and professional choices that women make.
These choices include the tendency of women to work fewer hours to focus on “domestic work” and accept “reduced job tenure resulting from breaks in labor-force participation to raise children.”
Miller even notes that women tend to choose lower-paying jobs than do men, pointing out that dangerous jobs such as “construction, manufacturing, and transport” are predominantly done by men, while “most workers in health care and education occupations are women.”
But men and women work in different jobs. Is there a pay gap if you compare apples to apples?
Yes. Government data breaking down the average pay of men and women working full time within specific occupations show that in almost every occupation, men are paid more than women.
In one of the largest samples of data and ranges of occupations available from federal government data (annual income estimates from the Census Bureau’s national American Community Survey, 2010–15), the government tracked pay in 525 occupations. AAUW analyses revealed that in 416 of those occupations, men earned significantly more than women. In 106 occupations, the difference between men and women was not statistically significant. In 2 occupations, average pay could not be estimated for both men and women. Women were paid significantly more than men in exactly 1 occupation out of the 525 occupations that were tracked: dieticians and nutritionists.
But men and women do tend to work in different jobs, a phenomenon called occupational gender segregation. Most workers in construction, manufacturing, and transport occupations are men, and most workers in health care and education occupations are women.
The jobs that men typically work pay better than the jobs that women typically work, even after accounting for their skill and education requirements.
For instance, full-time parking lot attendants (usually men) are paid more to watch cars than full-time child care workers (usually women) are paid to care for children, even though child care workers are increasingly being pushed to earn a college credential.
Don’t men work longer hours than women?
Most published pay gap estimates compare full-time workers with other full-time workers. But yes, women are more likely than men to work part time, and among full-time workers, men work longer hours on average than do women. However, on average women do more housework and care work than men. Men’s longer work hours are subsidized and facilitated by unpaid labor done by women, contributing to the gender pay gap.
