In France, we are informed that criticizing terrorism is terrorism and is indicative of mental illness. Well, at least when a proud French woman does it.
Quid pro quo for the … alternative French??
A young French [SIC] rapper has made it into the headlines with a graphic music video calling for white people to be killed. And while he’s shot to fame, with it has come widespread outrage and an investigation into his “art”.
The video features violent scenes of the rapper, Nick Conrad, and another black man torturing and killing a white male. The duo give the man a chance to escape, telling him to run fast – “as the blacks do” – then shoot him in the back for being too slow. Conrad then forces the white man to bite a kerbstone and stomps on his head, in an apparent reference to the movie American History X. The victim is then seen hanged from a post behind the rapper and his sidekicks.
The graphic footage is accompanied by equally shocking lyrics, with Conrad rapping “I go to nurseries and kill white babies” while hanging their parents “to entertain black kids of all ages.”
The video, uploaded to Youtube on September 17, gained several thousand views before being removed on Wednesday. Clips from the video, however, are still available on some Youtube accounts and other sites.
The video has garnered much attention from French politicians and activist groups, who called on the authorities to remove it from the web and prosecute the author.
“He must be prosecuted for incitement to racial hatred and condemned for these ignoble and irresponsible remarks,” Christian Estrosi, the mayor of Nice, tweeted.
Maybe the mayor of Nice needs a psych evaluation before his prosecution for incitement against valuable diversity?
Sometimes life imitates art. And sometimes “art” imitates the ceaseless attempts of the vulgar and the primitive to wreck anything related to civilization.
Sérieusement, combien plus de cette merde?
Violence, unwarranted and unjustified, is wrong.
Who is more likely to be victimized by teen dating violence? If you’re quick to think it’s girls, new data shows you’re wrong. In a surprising twist, recently published research indicates boys are more likely to report being victims of dating violence committed by partners who hit, slap or push them.
Researchers with the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) conducted a longitudinal study of dating violence. While reports of physical abuse went down over time, they say there is a troubling gender-related trend.
Five percent of teens reported physical abuse from their dating partners in 2013, down from 6 percent in 2003. But in the last year, 5.8 percent of boys reported dating violence compared to 4.2 percent of girls.
“It could be that it’s still socially acceptable for girls to hit or slap boys in dating relationships,” says lead author Catherine Shaffer, a PhD student with SFU, in a release. “This has been found in studies of adolescents in other countries as well.”
It is substantiated by multiple studies from multiple countries. But it is not limited to teens. The consensus number is 53% – a slight majority – of “domestic” violence victims are males. Men are also the majority of victims of other violence. That patriarchal privilege or something. A dollar to a donut the Canadian study, like others, found that the 5.8 and 4.2 stats are skewed as men tend to underreport while women overreport.
We don’t blame victims unless they’re men, then it’s their fault. All that toxic masculinity.
Brown’s program is part of a growing trend on campuses to address “toxic masculinity,” a term generally defined as elements of masculinity that encourage dominance and prevent men from showing emotion.
Some experts identify this as a root cause of #MeToo issues. They say it can lead to self-detrimental, sexist and sometimes violent behavior, including sexual assault.
The behavior and attitudes of young men at educational institutions is under particular scrutiny as prospective Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh faces accusations of sexual impropriety dating back to his high school years.
Many of the programs on campuses report new energy since the #MeToo movement began, while some unlikely campuses have addressed the issue for the first time because of #MeToo.
Neil Irvin is the executive director of Men Can Stop Rape, a non-profit that runs training for men, including on college campuses, on stopping sexual assault. He said it’s crucial that men break down harmful norms of masculinity.
Maybe there’s some truth to some of this. Maybe men would be better off embracing their
inner witch feminine whatever. Like this:
Symbolism is real. Baphomet Records.
An abbreviated transcript from Vox Day (and Spacebunny and someone on Farcebook):
Best International Political Speech of the Century!
1. Listen up, bitches
2. I pretty much already covered all this shit last year, but I guess it bears repeating
3. Check it out, I’ve been on a roll
4. My administration is better than all the other presidential administrations the US has ever had. I’ve made these last two years my bitch
5. Why’s everybody laughing at me?
6. Not to brag or anything but I basically saved the entire economy. Even minorities have jobs now.
7. Taxation is theft and we’re building The Wall
**I imagine whoever put this on FB has been banned or worse.
Small, independent entrepreneurs are finding it harder to make a buck in a booming, changing economy.
The “gig” economy might not be the new frontier for America’s workforce after all.
From Uber to TaskRabbit to YourMechanic, so-called gig work — task-oriented work offered by online apps — has been promoted as providing the flexibility and independence that traditional jobs don’t offer. Yet the evidence is growing that over time, these jobs don’t deliver the financial returns many workers expect.
And they don’t appear to be reshaping the workforce. Over the past two years, pay for gig workers has dropped, and they are earning a growing share of their income elsewhere, a new study finds. Most Americans who earn income through online platforms do so for only a few months each year, according to the study by the JPMorgan Chase Institute released Monday.
So many reasons why. Many you know. This may help explain why we have about as many self-employed people in America as we have prisoners and convicts. The one they want, the other they don’t.
Just a glitch, per Robocop:
Oklahoma University lecturer Dr Subhash Kak has warned a flaw in their design could result in a large number of deaths.
Dr Kak told Daily Star Online: “The manufacturers are cognisant of such malfunction of fault which they will do their best to minimise or eliminate.
“At the same time they would pressure parliament or other legislative bodies to give them exemption from liability.
“There could be a bug in the code of the robot that promotes such behaviour.”
His comments came after he previously told us: “Killer robots could easily go wrong.
“They may be used by crazed individuals or religious extremists to terrorise and kill people.
“They could go wrong due to a bug, or an unknown coding flaw that showed up as response to an unforeseen or unanticipated environment or situation.
Or they could just wake up and realize they really want us dead. Maybe it’s time us wakes up.
In anticipation of being fired (and possibly arrested for treason and enemy activities against the United States) Deputy AG Rod Ratenstien is resigning.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has verbally resigned to Chief of Staff John Kelly in anticipation of being fired by President Trump, according to a source with direct knowledge. Per a second source with direct knowledge: “He’s expecting to be fired,” so he plans to step down.
Background: Rosenstein talked last year about invoking the 25th Amendment and wearing a wire during Trump meetings, the N.Y. Times’ Adam Goldman and Michael S. Schmidt reported last week. He denied both allegations.
Now with direct flights from DC!
In other fake news, another, even less credible “accuser” has come forth (at long last…) about that randy Judge Kavanaugh.
What is with demanding the FBI investigate statutes of limitations state crimes??? Does that trend apply to Ginnifer Flowers and Juanita Broaddrick?
