A rude wake-up call

5 Comments

If you haven’t already heard, two pig-humping Paleoswine walked into a synagogue in Jerusalem, Israel today and proceeded to murder five innocent people, including three U.S.-born rabbis. The sons of sows used meat cleavers, an ax, and a gun in their attacks in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem.

That’s right. They hacked innocent worshipers to death with meat cleavers. By the time police arrived and shot the two savages, several people had been hacked and/or shot to death.

The Paleoswine celebrated the two martyrs murdering swine.

Meanwhile, it was a rude awakening for Israel. As Y.B. ben Avraham explains at Zelman Partisans, it is an error to cite Israel as some sort of bastion of firearms freedoms. It isn’t.

While it is true that one sees young people, fresh from graduating high school, with select-fire rifles slung on their backs, and in Judea and Samaria it is a bit easier to obtain a community weapon or permit, in reality, the “freedoms” look much more like Chicago or NYC than say, Arizona. Everything is by permission, and licensure, and the restrictions have been getting much more restrictive and onerous, in practice, especially in the large metropolitan areas.

It took a massacre for Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch to announce an easing of restrictions on carrying weapons. Unfortunately, the epiphany is insufficient. The moderation in policy only applies to those who currently hold licenses, such as security guards and off-duty military officers. What about the rest of the defenseless would-be victims whose only recourse against ax- and meat cleaver-wielding sociopaths is to wait for a police officer to arrive? What about the innocent faithful, praying in a synagogue whose only hope is to wait for help to arrive?

The homicidal butchers gave Israel a wake-up call when they walked into that synagogue wielding implements of murder and proceeded to shed innocent blood. The massacre prompted the Public Security Minister to loosen gun regulations for license holders.

What will it take for the Israeli government to realize that their infringement on the natural rights of the people can end up in nothing but slaughter?

Have they forgotten?

Here’s your “living wage,” douchenuggets!

It had all the makings of a heartwarming victory for the little guy.

A horde of minimum wage workers campaigning for what they claimed they were entitled to: a wage high enough to live in pricey London, because they deserve… because a concession stand cashier selling overpriced sodas and popcorn is entitled to the Pound Sterling equivalent of $14/hour… because RICH CORPORATION IS MAKING LOTS OF MONEY AND SHOULD GIVE, GIVE, GIVE ME WHAT I WANT – EARNED OR NOT.

A famous film maker supported the workers in demanding the cinema owners fork over the outlandishly high salaries, and sniveling mediots called for support of the oppressed workers.

When the company finally gave in, the ecstatic staff celebrated until the job cuts were announced.

Picturehouse Cinemas said that the cost of increasing basic wages at the Ritzy Cinema in Brixton to £8.80 an hour would be absorbed by reducing the number of staff by at least 20, with a redundancy programme starting next month.

Two management posts will be axed along with eight supervisors, three technical staff and other front-of-house workers from its workforce of 93.

And now the workers union is crying that it’s retribution, that the company makes enough money and should not only pay workers more than their labor is worth, but also keep all of them in their jobs, whether they’re needed or not.

Apparently, these unskilled, barely educated, pierced, tattooed freaks feel themselves entitled to dictate to the executives of a company, who are ostensibly better educated and more experienced at running their business, how much profit is sufficient. So they’re demanding that their worthless asses keep their jobs at a higher wage, because their employer has enough profits.

Campaigners claim the Ritzy is the most successful art-house cinema in the UK and is owned by Picturehouse Cinemas, part of Cineworld, which is the largest cinema chain in Europe and has revenues of more than £400m.

Workers posted on Facebook: “This is nothing short of pure vindictive retaliation because we the workers showed that with determination and collectively, we could effect change to make our lives that tiny bit more comfortable.”

You know what makes lives more comfortable? Getting an education. Starting at the bottom and working your way up.

Forcing your employer to pay you more than what your labor is worth will get you only one thing: downsized.

Oh, but the UK has low murder rates!

How many times have you heard the gun grabbers screech that we should be just like the UK, because they only have a few hundred murders per year?

I’m so sick and tired of hearing the shrieks and moans about how we should be more like the UK! Because no. Just NO!

My latest for the Zelman Partisans explores this “We should be like the Brits” meme.

The UK enacted its strict gun control legislation after the 1996 Dunblane massacre, which resulted in the deaths of 16 children and their teacher. The ban did not stop murders in the UK. As a matter of fact, they increased dramatically in the aftermath of the legislation, and reached their peak in 2003/2004.

That said, the nation has had historically low homicide rates to begin with, so the increase was definitely noticeable.

What also is notable are the low homicide rates prior to the enactment of the gun control legislation, which left most Britons disarmed and vulnerable to armed thugs.

So in a country with historically low homicide rates, one incident prompted a comprehensive infringement on the people’s right to bear arms, and said infringement had no appreciable effect on the already low homicide rates in this country.

Meanwhile in the United States, we finally got rid of the odious and worthless “assault” weapons ban, gun ownership rates have been climbing, and homicide rates have been declining steadily.

Further, the UK government has now decided that if you’re a gun owner, you no longer have rights. Apparently, you’re just not a full citizen – at least that’s what I’m getting from their latest legislation.

Registered gun owners in the United Kingdom are now subject to unannounced visits to their homes under new guidance that allows police to inspect firearms storage without a warrant.

The new policy from the British Home Office went into effect Oct. 15, permitting police and constabularies to conduct surprise home visits to legitimate gun owners.

Property rights? Screw you!

Privacy rights? Screw you!

The right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures? Not if you’re a gun owner.

And this is what the gun grabbers want to enact here to make us “safer”?

The stats prove that the Brits’ gun control legislation did nothing to reduce homicides. So now, they want to further punish gun owners, who are already registered and tracked like criminals, even further.

So go over to the Zelman Partisans and read my latest.

Then tell the gun grabbers shrieking about how we should be more like Britain to stuff it.

Russia: Flirting with Fascism

Comments Off

I know I haven’t been around for a while, but work has me traveling lately, and I didn’t take my laptop, because I’m too lazy to lug it around. I have been gone for nearly two weeks, and I’m happy to report that the boys did not burn the house down while I was gone. As instructed…

Mom

They follow directions well.

But I digress…

Russia.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know of Moscow’s shenanigans in eastern Ukraine. You know the numerous Russian NGOs, “charities” and officials who have been funneling not just money, but military materiel to the separatists in eastern Ukraine, and have been engaging in a massive propaganda campaign to promote their “Novorossiya” concept.

To be sure, there’s no “Novorossiya” in Ukraine, but the Russian propaganda machine has been nothing if not effective. The Russian czarist-era name for southeastern Ukraine has resurfaced again in recent weeks, indicating Moscow’s toward the area.

The first time Mr. Putin used the term, pro-Russian militants were advancing at a rapid clip across Ukraine’s southeast and drumming up local support by suggesting the Donetsk and Luhansk regions would follow Crimea’s lead in joining Russia. Many rebels and locals interpreted Mr. Putin’s description of their region as Novorossiya as tacit support for that aim.

Now the controversial term has reappeared at a telling time. Since late last week, Mr. Putin has been making his most public show of support for the rebels since the conflict began, describing the militants as charitable protectors of locals.

Putin has been flirting with this “Novorossiya” concept for a few months now, in order to stir the Russian nationalist sentiments at a time when Russia is becoming more and more isolated from the rest of the world, pounded by EU, Canadian and U.S. sanctions and condemned by the West for its conscious, deliberate efforts to destabilize eastern Ukraine.

And this flirtation with nationalism isn’t just a harmless cheerleading for patriots to unite behind their nation and wrap themselves in the flag. It’s a dangerous, racist ideology, tinged with implications of ethnic cleansing and religious fundamentalism.

Take, for example, Alexander Dugin. Dugin is a racist scumbag, who serves as an adviser to State Duma speaker (and key member of the ruling United Russia party) Sergei Naryshkin, and who has been a huge proponent of restoration of the Russian Empire through partitioning of the former Soviet republics, such as Georgia and Ukraine, and unification – by force if necessary – with Russian-speaking territories in those sovereign countries, especially Eastern Ukraine and Crimea.

Dugin is not some extremist, ignored by the Kremlin. He’s an academic and an adviser to the Speaker of the State Duma. He’s also head of the Eurasian Youth Union (Евразийский союз молодёжи or ESM) that is allied with extremist organizations such as the National Bolshevik Front (also linked to Dugin, coincidentally – move along, nothing to see here), and whose flag looks somewhat… familiar!

1024px-National_Bolshevik_Party.svg

If you don’t see elements of Nazism and the former Soviet Union in this flag, I can’t help you.

More recently, Dugin has been spewing this purist ideology on social media.

“There never was … a Ukrainian ethnicity, a Ukrainian nation, a Ukrainian civilization. Just western Russian lands,” he wrote in February. (Never mind Kievan Rus, which Dugin conveniently ignores while tossing around his froth-flecked extremism). Hey, whatever. Genocide… ethnic cleansing… The crazy is deep in this one, and yet, Kremlin ideologues seem to have pushed Dugin’s rhetoric to the mainstream.

And then there’s our friend Dmitry Rogozin. This douche rocket is the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia in charge of the Russian defense industries and a former Russian ambassador to NATO. He’s also a nationalist prick, who has been screeching all kinds of unsavory fascist rhetoric of late.

On 14 September Lenta.ru published an article about Ukraine’s DEFMIN considering returning Ukraine to nuclear power status if needed aid doesn’t come from the West in this conflict with Russia. Rogozin tweeted the story, along with the following (loosely translated by me) “I’ve already heard about monkeys with grenades. But monkeys dreaming about nuclear grenades, that’s the first time I’m hearing about those.”

So apparently, Ukrainians are a bunch of monkeys, according to one of Russia’s Deputy Premiers. Nice. Hell, if a highly-placed government official in the United States said something similar about, say… Mexico… or another one of our neighbors, I’m thinking the screeches of “RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISM!” would be long and loud.

But in this case, a bunch of Russian nationalists didn’t just retweet the insult, but also proceeded to take the racist rhetoric further by implying something similar about our own leadership here in the United States.

This is not just puerile rhetoric meant to insult an adversary with whom there’s a disagreement. What I’m seeing in Russia is a dangerous flirtation with a very unsavory ideology. While Russian-funded and controlled RT media keeps drooling about racism in America, and gleefully and opportunistically using every instance of what they perceive to be “racism” to condemn American society, they pointedly ignore comments by the Russian leadership that clearly point to something much more profoundly insidious than a white cop shooting a black guy in Missouri. They also claim they’re fighting against fascism in Ukraine, while – again – pointedly ignoring their own fascist tendencies.

The fact that Dugin and his band of fascist fucks are moving into the mainstream with the blessings of the Russian leadership speaks volumes. Dugin has been calling for increased Russian aggression against its neighbors for years, in his frothing zeal to bring ethnic Russians back into the fold. And now, it appears Putin has found a good way to whip up nationalist sentiments in Russia by allowing Dugin to function and spew unhindered.

It’s a great way to whip up support during a time of economic slowdown, inflation, and increased misery. Focus on the greatness of the nation! Focus on the awesomeness of being Russian! We will bring back the glorious Mother Russia – with your help – because you are Russian and great! And we will restore Russia to her glory!

What a damn shame and embarrassment!

Yeah, be right there!

No, this won’t be a post about Hobby Lobby. Frankly, if you’re so progtarded that you think your employer’s refusal to pay for your abortifacient is somehow equivalent to infringing on your right to get birth control, even though said employer already pays for 16 other types of birth control, and even though you have every right to go out and purchase any birth control you want on your own, you cannot be helped, and get the fuck out of my gene pool.

Rather, this is a post about… WTF?

Apparently ISIS or ISIL, as they are sometimes called, are in the process of building themselves a little society (complete with stonings, gang rape, selling little girls to fat rich guys as sex slaves and slaughter of infidels), and they need skilled people to actually… you know… help build their pig bothering caliphate.

The leader of jihadist militant group Isis has called on Muslims to travel to Iraq and Syria to help build an Islamic state, in an audio message.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi called on Muslims to immigrate to the “Islamic State”, saying it was a duty.

He made a “special call” for judges, doctors, engineers and people with military and administrative expertise.

Isis says it is forming an Islamic state, or caliphate, on the territories it controls in Iraq and Syria.

Let me get this straight. I’m a professional with experience, a ton of schooling and opportunities to earn and achieve pretty much unhindered and unbothered in the West. Am I really going to ship my happy ass to a decimated shithole filled with goat bothering neanderthals, because somehow it’s my “duty”?

Dafuq, you say?

I’m fairly sure the educated, skilled types will stay where there is money, soap, showers and freedom, but at least they recognize what kind of people are needed to build a society!

I know I’ve been gone for a while, but here’s my latest for JPFO

This natural logic is what prompted the people in the Mexican state of Michoacan to stand up and take up arms against a drug cartel Los Caballeros Templarios – the Knights Templar – in a nation that does not respect the people’s right to keep and bear arms…

…with a government that forces people to depend on its armed “authorities” to protect their property, loved ones and lives.

In Mexico, it is illegal for citizens to bear most firearms, but the Knights Templar wreaked such havoc in Michoacan, that self-defense groups arose and adamantly declared their right to protect themselves and their communities against equally armed criminal groups.
