Because I can’t stop making fun of the irrationality at the rational wiki website.
Pettibone also described the following passage as “wise words”:
“For Aristotle, democracy is possible only within homogeneous ethnic groups, while despots have always reigned over highly fragmented societies.
A multi-ethnic society is thus necessarily anti-democratic and chaotic, for it lacks philia, this profound, flesh-and-blood fraternity of citizens. Tyrants and despots divide and rule, they want the City divided by ethnic rivalries. The indispensable condition for ensuring people’s sovereignty accordingly resides in its unity. Ethnic chaos prevents all philia from developing.”
Tweeted the same page about a month ago. Wise words. For those curious, the page is from “Why We Fight” by Guillaume Faye.Wikipedia’s W.svg
Aristotle is correct. The only way democracy has a chance of functioning is within homogeneous groups. Ethnic and otherwise.
The OK Hand Sign, emojified as ????, is a dogwhistle that alt-righters use to show that they are alt-right without explicitly stating it, echoing both Trump’s and Pepe’s usage of the sign. The alt-right use originated as bait for a /pol/ “prank” or trolling attempt, but as the media failed to fall into the trap, its usage rapidly shed whatever irony it had. As of January 2018, Snopes has listed the symbol as ambiguous as to whether it is an alt-right symbol or alt-right trolling.
The OK hand sign is racist because of how Pepe uses it. Pepe. Are any of these rational people aware that Pepe is a drawing?
Also funny – “the media failed to fall into the trap.”
I was recently banned by both Patreon and Donorbox, cutting me off from my monthly supporters. If, like me, you believe such censorship is unwarranted and are interested in supporting me with a one-time or recurring donation, I would be extremely grateful.
You can also support me with a one time Credit Card or Wire transfer. Every donation is highly appreciated, and is invaluable in regards to the continuation of my work.
Cyberbegging. Thots gotta thot. No matter the political philosophy they claim all women are like that.
A young alien and a teenage earthling fall in love, and plot to stop the alien’s race from using Earth as a food-breeding ground for giant lobsters from their planet.
Lobsters. Blue lobsters?
For some white-nationalists, Thor is an icon of white Aryan warrior masculinity. But Marvel’s Thor comic books and films have been reimagining the Norse mythological tradition in a way that is more inclusive than ever. And notably, three of the four cosplayers I saw were people of color. For them, it seemed that Viking religion was simply cool, and the amulets were part of a fun costume.
White supremacists try to appropriate these sort of symbols precisely for this reason: it’s easy for them to hide in plain sight, allowing them to slip under our radar. And even more insidiously, when it comes to light that these are sometimes used as symbols of hate, it can make white supremacists’ numbers seem greater than they really are. To extend the metaphor, it floods our radar with false positives, causing us to see white supremacy everywhere, even in places where it is not.
Having written about the white supremacist attempts to appropriate the Middle Ages this year, I now see Schrödinger’s medievalisms all the time. And in the light of the very real white supremacy splayed across our politics and our news every day, it’s very difficult not to get freaked out.
Racism. It’s every place. You just have to look for it. Or make it up.
Until it gets censored you can buy Pettibone’s book via my Amazon affiliate link at cls.link/amazon. Then I can buy yet another Supergirl statue I don’t need.
Send some commies to Canada. They said they would go if the Trumpenfuhrer was elected President but they are too dumb to figure out Canada is to the north and too poor to get there ’cause they have liberal arts degrees. Commies To Canada.
Bitcoin me bitches and bitchettes. It’s the only crypto-currency that can be used to buy anything.
