Anger Management

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am finding that my patience is running thin with everything that is going on with the virus. I’ve never been much of a television watcher, but I still catch Tucker’s monologue a few times a week. I’ve stopped that this week as I cannot take another ad from a corporation telling me how much they care and how hard they are working on my behalf. I can’t take anymore nonsense about hero nurses and doctors. In fact, I’m starting to become a nursist.

Going outside has now become a depressing reminder that we now live in an explicitly authoritarian society. It used to be a very soft, passive-aggressive authoritarianism that you could ignore while enjoying your life. Now it is an in-your-face corporate authoritarianism that is impossible to ignore. On a trip to get supplies, it is a constant reminder of Theodore Dalrymple’s famous quote about communism. Not even the quiet revenge fantasy on the commute eases the burden.

When this started, my sense was the panic would peak around Easter and then begin to decline as the obvious became obvious. The politicians would see the damage they were causing and panic in the other direction. The public would quickly figure out that a disease with a 99% survival rate was a risk worth taking in order to put food on the table and a roof over their head. By now we would be a in mad dash to talk ourselves into believing everything would get back to normal.

I was wrong about that. Some states are trying to break loose from the spell, but most seem to like what’s happening. They are feverishly looking around for reasons to extend these restrictions into the summer. Not only that, they are dreaming up new torments in the name of “keeping us safe.” A local grocer here in Lagos now takes everyone’s temperature before they enter. They also limit the number of people in the store at any one time, which means there is a block long line to enter.

It is tempting to think that people will finally have enough and put an end to this madness, but that is a fantasy. The few brave souls taking a stand are getting support, for sure, but the bulk of the public is happy to be treated like children. You can be sure the majority oppose the protests at state capitals. Until the food runs out and the machine breaks, people will accept unlimited torment. That means we are left to hope for the end times if we want to escape this madness.

Of course, being wrong about the track of the panic means I could be wrong about people’s attitudes right now. Maybe the bulk of the public is quietly seething. It’s hard to know since everyone is locked inside, but it is possible. The support for that hairdresser in Texas suggests some people have had enough. Maybe a few more abuses like that are what it will take to get people angry enough to stop caring about the rules. That’s what it takes in these times. People need to get mad as Hell.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. I am now on Deezer, for our European haters and Stitcher for the weirdos. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.

Here in Michigan the Wicked Witch of the North extended the lockdown to the 28th. My parents are stating that shops and businesses in rural areas are quietly opening back up, and a local barber has made a more dramatic defiant stand and told local media he was opening. Team Lockdown on social media had begun to get very quiet. Everything is pointing to the lockdown ending with a whimper, as people simple shrug their shoulders and just start living their lives, lockdown or not. There will be no great victory, or defeat.

As someone familiar with rural areas of Michigan, most of the sheriffs are solid people that are unlikely to put much effort into enforcing business closures.

If they do, I can report most of those departments aren’t very large or well-equipped and State Police posts are few and far between.

I wouldn’t count on a media pivot. The left is indifferent to property crimes committed by “youths.” Even if they have him on video committing robbery, there will be calls for blood.

3.He’s in a fight with the guy on the ground, then gets shot from the truck. Self defense?

“There’s no reason why the McMichaels should have confronted Arbery even if he’s guilty of everything they suspect him of. They’re not cops. They didn’t personally witness him commit any crime.”

I am sympathetic to the McMichaels. Vibrant crime was increasing in their neighborhood and they wanted to protect their hood, but their legal case doesn’t look good. We should be living separately.

No, shooting feral blacks in the commission of a crime should not only be legal – it should be encouraged. In order to work, black justice has to be simple, swift, and severe. After decades of coddling, they are becoming ever more bold and are starting to hunt outside the ‘hood. Actions like this will be periodically necessary to keep them on their own side of the fence.

The guy probably did rob the house, but it’s too late anyways. The case will be used to rile up anti-white animus just in time for november 2020. Also the blacks might riot if they aren’t sentenced.

Anyway, I don’t care about the facts or who was right or wrong. I’ve learned from the left: I support the white guys no matter what because they’re my own people. I don’t care about the black guy because he’s not my people. Facts and justice don’t matter anymore, as the left has proven. In a multicultural society, I side with my team no matter what.

Length of jail stay is the least of their worries. If not segregated, the black gangs will snuff them out.

A house down the street has two signs in the yard that show the laughable hypocrisy and cluelessness of upper-middle class, suburban white women.

On one side of the sidewalk leading up to the house is a sign that says “Hate Has No Home Here” below which the slogan is written in five or six other languages.

On the other side of sidewalk is a sign with the name of private security company that monitors and protects her house.

5PT is the only solution to the “Women Question.” The layers of feminist incentives and anti-White-male deterrents are too well-established for an inside-the-system fix.

We have to lead, some of them will follow. Then we raise the next generation of women with better values. We’ll lose some to liberalism Red & Blue, but we’ll keep some too.

It looks like the abnormal is the new normal. The NYC area politicians seem comfortable with open ended lock downs. Indefinitely closing down NYC! It is probably paranoia, but it reminds me of Pol Pot driving the city people into the countryside. They are a hundred times scarier than the virus.

I was next door to New Rochelle the day King Cuomo declared their lockdown. The other governor monkeys saw what he did and followed suit, making him King Monkey.

If we took NYC/NJ out of the equation, the Panicdemic would be far less. The media and AWFLs are in New York.

King Cuomo started the spread. Being told that hospitals would be overwhelmed, he forced the uninfected nursing homes to take in Covid patients to make space.

So, the spread is in the nursing homes.

If one enjoyed life, had ambitions, etc. they wouldn’t be happy with the lockdown. Especially the suburbanites/soccer moms. Karens. Row after row of cookie cutter house, hours of commuting, dominating their beta husband she never fucks, and weird foreigners all over. Sounds like a shitty life. 2.

Over time birth control and abortion is making whites lower IQ and more tribal, more religious, more conservative.

Most whites coming out of public schools are negro-obsessed and selling/using drugs. What else would they do.

Parents need to play an active role in their kids’ education. But have kids. Even if you don’t believe in it find a Christian church/community you can raise them in.

I can’t think of a worse hill for the shit-libs to die on than State bailouts.
Every Republican would be hammering the list of $250k assistant diversity coordinators, Cops on $150k pensions, Town managers of 50,000 population towns making twice what every state governor makes etc etc,
It’s just about the only thing I can think of that might pry normies eyes open.

I wouldn’t call it authoritarianism. I would call it totalitarianism. One is not the same as the other. You can have non-totalitarian authoritarianism, then you can have non-authoritarian totalitarianism, which is what we have now in the West. In totalitarianism, the rulers want to control every aspect of our lives.

I would prefer non-totalitarian authoritarianism if had to choose between those two. Basically, neglect by the authorities.

I feel the same way. As a Georgia resident, I felt that when the governor loosened things up people would rush out and do business regardless of the rules. It hasn’t happened. Things are slightly different in my small Republican town in a small Republican county. Our mayor says to get out and enjoy the Spring. Athens, Georgia next door, has a Democrat administration and a “diverse” population. The Athens mayor says that Athens is still in a state of emergency (the gov’s proclamation supersedes all local proclamations) and that everyone should stay home and not open their business.

I’ve seen an abnormally high number of cars with NY and NJ plates for the past month or so. Yesterday on my commute home there was an SUV with a Commiefornia tag. From the amount of luggage on the top rack, it looks like they planned on an extended stay. Blech.

I’m seeing the same thing in Tuscaloosa. A lot of it is yankee refugee students with off campus housing (mostly Greeks) taking this as an opportunity to enjoy a four month series of house parties. Tuscaloosa isn’t enforcing shit compared to NY and NJ (whose plates are thick on the ground at my locale) so I don’t blame them for coming here. Sometimes their parents have tagged along to enjoy the cheap hotels.

Another factor is that at least here at Alabama this is move out weekend from the dorms, hence the SUVs with luggage racks,

Up until maybe Waco or Kazinski (early 90s), people still perceived that there had been only one big unexplainable “event” – namely JFK. Even though MLK, Jonestown, and Watergate had already occurred and fit that same weird mold: “facts” about the event were widely disputed within hours, information was revealed in dramatic fashion but with major pieces missing, multiple theories developed over time with threads of truth but mostly plausible deniability for institutions, and finally, Congressional hearings to produced the “official explanation”. It seemed to me anyway, that people seeing Janet Reno’s federal violence unleashed on these helpless people was… Read more »

I feel that the problem with the gun issue is that lefties can’t stop and think about WHY they don’t like guns. I’ve long known that gun ownership doesn’t always correlate with crime. But I still support gun control because of who tends to own guns. If lefties would at least be honest about it – then the debate might be more fruitful.

Gun control is taking away my right to own guns. For me it’s that simple. Thugs don’t care about the law. Gun control would be ineffective in controlling the people you think it would be intended for. You’re mistaken to think the Left cares to control these people. They don’t. Their only concern is to control the white populace. If we ever have gun control & we object it’s not working to lower crime, they will rationalize new reasons.

Evidently the US military is now considering banning potential recruits from enlisting if they have been hospitalized due to the effects of CV-19.

German and other European medical centers are reporting those who survived a CV-19 infection are showing significant scarring in the lung tissue which is not as a result of being on a ventilator since not all CV-19 patients were put on ventilators.

This would make for a pretty good argument that this is not a “typical” seasonal flu.

There’s a bunch of weird stuff about WuFlu. I’m not following developments closely (from a medical standpoint), but I can say that it definitely pushes the afflicted toward hyper coagulability, i.e. excessive blood clotting. This obviously includes pulmonary emboli, clots in the blood vessels in the lungs. There’s quite a bit of this in the recent medical literature. Personally I (peer) reviewed an imaging paper that was a case series of pulmonary embolism cases (in people without the usual risk factors for PE, such as cancer, prolonged immobility, etc) straight out of Wuhan.

If you expect the actual cost to house & educate one person is in the neighborhood of half-a-million dollars, then Harvard has enough reserves to “educate” 80,000 incoming students; at 20,000 new students arriving each year, it would take four years to run down their reserves.
Let them pay for it themselves .. no government bailouts or loans, no write-offs of government guaranteed student debts.
