There is no software to fix our empty heads and broken souls

“The flood of ‘fake news’ this election season got support from a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy, say independent researchers who tracked the operation,” wrote Craig Timberg at the Washington Post.

The Revenge of WhiteManistan

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, WhiteManistan at 12:53 pm by George Smith

Tuesday, everywhere but in California, just about every reason for the existence of this blog came true. White American snapped out and stuck it to the black man in the White House the only way they knew how, by voting for the lunatics, fascists and science-deniers of the Old White Purity party. Everyone else stayed […]

WhiteManistan (ongoing)

Posted in Decline and Fall, Extremism at 9:19 am by George Smith

It was obvious that they were parroting some piece of nonsense they had heard on the radio or read in the newspapers. Sometimes one was tempted to say as much, but on such occasions one was met with such a stare of incredulity, such a shock of silence, as if one had blasphemed the Almighty, […]

Flabbergasting

Posted in Extremism at 1:08 pm by George Smith

Good news, lads, good news! Walmart is the best agency to respond to superstorms, calamitous climate brought on by global warming, and earthquakes, too, probably. Recitation of William L. Shirer needed: Often in a German home or office or sometimes in a casual conversation with a stranger in a restaurant, a beer hall, a cafe, […]

On the yen for authoritarians (continued)

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Decline and Fall at 11:24 am by George Smith

Frontline’s special on how a few groups in the far right Republican Party made the fact of global warming a no-go in the United States is here. This has made the country into a redoubt of know-nothing-ism and anti-science. “They think of themselves as rebels,” Frontline’s John Hockenberry says at the start. Rebels — a […]

On the wish for authoritarians

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Extremism, Psychopath & Sociopath at 12:19 pm by George Smith

It’s difficult for grasp how the Republican Party retains any support. That is, until you recognize that human beings, and the way they think, haven’t changed much. Here’s William L. Shirer, in a yellowed 1959 copy of “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,” with something to say on people who live in media […]

This stupid actually burns

From an NBC News story, where they hire bloggers and reporters who are the most senseless and fit for the job: The Molotov cocktail was named after Vyacheslav Molotov, the Soviet foreign minister during the 1950s. It is a general term used to describe improvised incendiary devices. The Molotov cocktail, contrary to the beliefs of […]

The Bomb Iran lobby

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 2:49 pm by George Smith

If they could personally touch off a war with Iran before the election, they would. From the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, and the anti-shariah law/get Huma Abedin crew, this — timed for Netanyahu’s “red line” speech at the UN. It’s useful to see how the Cult is doing its best to start another war […]

Remembering recent al Qaeda funny books

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, War On Terror at 8:24 am by George Smith

Earlier this year, on the publication of al Qaeda’s magazine, Inspire: Inspire magazine, while not meant to be an al Qaeda joke, has always been easy to brush off. It’s been an example of how al Qaeda has had a serious problem with recruitment filled as it is with wishful thinkers and fantasies on terror […]

Literary news contrast — then and now

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Decline and Fall, War On Terror, Why the World Doesn't Need US at 3:55 pm by George Smith

My friend Don had a wonderful library. Books were a big part of his life and I have been trying to give the many fine ones in it new homes. All those worth having and reading, and there are many, will not be wasted on public school libraries or other similar “charity,” since the actual […]
