Insanity & Doom Update LV

Item The first item is the image which heads this post. Lady Gaggag with all living ex-Presidents. She is standing, they are sitting. Who is in charge? This picture may be adopted as the iconic Insanity & Doom image. (Hat tip to James True, who originally posted the image.)

Image Conor Daly loses Lilly Diabetes sponsorship over remark his father made over 30 years ago

Lilly Diabetes has pulled its sponsorship of Conor Daly’s No. 6 car in the NASCAR Xfinity race at Road America, citing a racially insensitive remark made by the driver’s father in the 1980s that surfaced this week.

Which reminds me. Have they fully purged Mark Twain yet? We wouldn’t want some poor child to stumble across Tom Sawyer and be shocked into a fit by seeing racially insensitive remarks.

Incidentally, “racially insensitive remark” means “words spoken ill of a non-white.” We have already seen words spoken ill of whites are celebrated as sensitive and non-racial.

This story brings up a question you can help me with, dear reader. What is the statute of limitations on “racially insensitive remarks”? At least 30 years, as the story proves. But is it 40? 50? Unlimited? If it was unlimited Mark Twain really would be gone. Is the limitation dependent on time? Meaning, this Current Year it’s 30 years, but due to progress, next Current Year it’s 40 years?

Item People Are Calling For An In-N-Out Boycott Because Burger Chain Donated To GOP

In-N-Out Burger is shaking up social media this week but not in a good way: Its $25,000 donation to the California Republican Party has led some people to call for a boycott of the burger chain…

The company also gave $30,000 last year and $50,000 this year to a PAC called Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, which supports pro-business Democratic candidates, as Fortune pointed out.

Word is, as you probably heard, this boycott failed. It was a small, one-day furor. But that it happened at all is what is of interest. Of course, donating to a political cause in California is how they got Brendan Eich. I’m sure that lesson encouraged others, especially since many political donations are on-the-record.

Donating to Republicans—who are thisclose to Democrats—is a thoughtcrime; at least, to some. It will be interesting to (a) watch how and when this happens again, and (b) to discover, as we just discussed, the statute of limitations on donations. How many years in the past makes a donation a valid thoughtcrime.

Probably depends on exactly who the donation went to. Generic Republican party is probably the shortest; whereas, groups that, say, recognize actual marriage is unlimited.

Item STDs continue rapid rise in U.S., setting new record, CDC says

Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in America, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017, surpassing the record set in 2016 by more than 200,000, CDC scientists reported Tuesday.

Experts say many factors have contributed to the rapid rise, though the biggest one may be less frequent condom use. It’s less clear whether dating apps, like Tinder, have contributed in some way to the spread of STDs, though some researchers think they have.

Lord save us from “experts”.

In the past, the majority of syphilis infections were seen in gay men, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, Bolan told NBC News. “More recently, there have been increases among heterosexual men and women, including among pregnant women, which means we’re starting to see these infections in their babies.”

Charming.

Item Shocking memo reveals George Soros behind Google, Facebook censorship

Never, even in my fertile imagination, would I have guessed that we would find a smoking-gun 49-page memo revealing how George Soros operatives, including David Brock, were there at the genesis, the planning stages, with their hands on the ignition key, of the most concerted, well-funded, diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America.

I know what you’re thinking. That guy has a limited imagination. Here is the link to the memo, which, amazingly, still has not been wiped.

Now this is old news; the only reason I post it is to emphasize that of course it takes money and planning to conduct such wide-scale censoring. If I were incautious, I’d call this a conspiracy. And I’d remind you that not all conspiracies are theories.

Bonus Item Catholic College Leaders Who Are Part of the Problem

…most of the 230 Catholic colleges and universities have strayed far from their Catholic roots. This all began in 1967 when Catholic college leaders—including the now-disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick—gathered in Land O’Lakes, Wisconsin, to create a manifesto that declared their “true autonomy and academic freedom in the face of authority of whatever kind, lay or clerical.”

As a public service to graduates of those universities, here is a link to the definition of irony.

  1. The fruit of Vatican II: “true autonomy and academic freedom in the face of authority of whatever kind, lay or clerical.” What this means is freedom from Catholic truth.

  2. as you probably heard, this boycott failed. It was a small, one-day furor.

    Which shows how powerful a temptation an In-N-Out burger presents.

    In the past, the majority of syphilis infections were seen in gay men, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, Bolan told NBC News. “More recently, there have been increases among heterosexual men and women

    How dare they engage in cultural appropriation! There can be no diversity of everybody is the same. Cis-genders should stick to their own diseases.

  3. I see no picture of Lady Gaga, only George Soros.

    There is no statute of limitations on stupidity. You can go back 100 years or more. Great-great-great grandparents can be used to exclude. There was an email about “should have stopped me at the dinner roll” early in Obama’s administration. (Only location I can find easily is: http://biggirlpants.typepad.com/big_girl_pants/liberal_claptrap/) Since not enough stopped them at the dinner roll, there is nothing now to stop them. Anarchy rules.

    Only braindead, stupid, ignorant, retarded, bootlicking white fools who are CEOs do this crap. I haven’t seen any black CEO turn over and play dead for the racism garbage. They have more sense. White CEOs are flaming idiots and apparently proud of it. I hope when Nature (God, if you prefer I refer to the creature thereof, though He made it work on an ongoing basis so Nature is simply God’s way of keeping us in line without direct intervention) smacks the daylights out of this country it takes an extra swipe at these truly evil cowards.

    HIV is hybridizing and turning to AIDS three times faster. No one cares. Sex with anything that moves is worth dying for, isn’t it?

    The In’n’Out failed in part due to the business giving MORE to the Democrats in the past. Reporters are as impatient as a 2 year old and never get the whole story before running with it. Besides, they reportedly have great burgers.

    Soros is behind everything. Everyone knows that.

  4. … and Cavanaugh is “on trial” for something he may or may not have done as a teenager

    I’m still trying to process Norm MacDonald’s line

  5. It is rather ironic that considering your views that net neutrality is a bad thing. Of course, ending net neutrality can lead to censorship of websites like yours. And now you are complaining that privately own website refused to publish information they find offensive or false. But then,according to you, a place of business should be able to not offer services to people whom they don’t like there way of life.

    The Stream is notorious for censoring people who do not agree whit their blogger, and of course, more liberal leaning authors are unauthorized to post on there platform.

  6. Did George Soros pay for the Tweedledee caps? Does he wear one? If hands folded on lap are a secret white supremacist signal, what are Tweedledee caps signalling? They used to signal “moron below”, but has that changed recently? I can’t keep up…

  7. Sylvain – I believe you have it backwards. Censorship will always be with us. This blog attempts to point out subtle or hidden censorship of a certain bent. I see no irony here.

    If the government is in charge of the censorship, there is little or no recourse, especially for the individual. If private or corporate interests censor, there is almost always an alternative for the individual.

    I used to admonish my liberal friends that applauded their shortcuts, such as activist judicial rulings and extra-constitutional executive actions, that when the worm turns, they might not be so pleased. With the recent sweeping changes in the reins of power in the USA, it has been a small daily joy watching the little tyrants writhe in their own slimey castings.

  8. Dear Matt,

    I’m not sure if you and your readers understand the import and significance of the propeller caps worn by Google employees at their post-election commiseration party, as seen in the video leaked by Breitbart on 12 September:

    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/09/12/leaked-video-google-leaderships-dismayed-reaction-to-trump-election/

    The brightly-colored propeller caps are called “noogler” hats and are ostensibly given to new employees at their first company meeting.

    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/09/13/google-employees-mocked-for-cult-like-propeller-caps/

    But the real reason for the employee mocking is strictly a power play — a demonstration of who is master and who is slave.

    Your average American worker, if asked to wear a moron beanie, would tell the boss where to go, how to get there, and which orifice to stuff the hat into on the way. But Google employees are not average or American.

    I live in orchard country. Migrant fruit pickers are vital to the local economy. You might be surprised to learn that they are well-treated and well-payed. Should an orchardist mistreat his pickers, they will walk, disappear in to the night, and the fruit will rot on the trees. There are no official fruit picker unions, but they exist in a de facto way. Nobody but nobody calls INS ever.

    Google employees are not unionized even de facto-rily. If you stand up to management, you will be fired and deported back to India. Google execs hold the power of life and death over their employees. Hence the “hazing ritual” Tweedledee caps are really a soft hammer portending the real cudgel if employees deviate from total submissiveness.

    Such is the dark reality of life at Big Brother’s Ministry of Information.

  9. The real issue of Social Media censoring is that Twitter, et al. want to be treated as common carriers to avoid liability as publishers but also want to exercise freedom to control content (like a publisher). That shouldn’t get to have it both ways.

    The telephone company is privately owned but it can’t censor your phone calls except when the calls are clearly illegal.
    Movietime Inc v. NY Telephone Co., 277 App Div 1057, 101 NY Supp.2d 71 (2d Dept 1950)]
    Nadel v NY Tel., 170 NYS2d 95 (1957)
    Shillitani v. Valentine, 53 NYS 2d 127 (1945)

    The net neutrality argument isn’t about censorship per se. It is more about traffic prioritization. At some point, it will become necessary to avoid traffic jams. There’s only so much bandwidth to use. The U.S. highway system also has a version of prioritization: HOV lanes, e.g.

    I don’t see Lady Gaga either.

  10. “”I responded by explaining that I was a foreign driver now in America, driving for an American team, with an American crew, and with an American sponsor – and that if things did not go well, the only ‘n-word in the wood pile’ would be me. ”

    So he said “Nigger in the Woodpile” while young and stupid 30 years ago, and his descendant should e punished for it?

    we need a “‘B’ Ark”
