Warning and Educating Our Enemies

Warning and Educating Our Enemies

As Vox Day recently pointed out, “conservatives” love to instruct our enemy, better yet, warn them off because, hey, this time we’ll enforce consequences, if you keep this up. Yeah. Look, I actually respect what Crowder does with his “change my mind” segments, but he’s doing more than just instructing liberals on how awful the left really is – he’s staking out moral ground behind enemy lines, raising the morale of other right wingers, and battering down the misconceptions a number of people have, and thus actually gaining a few converts. You know, carrot to stick, but he’s got skin in the Read more »

Quick Coverage

Quick Coverage

Stuff that I just couldn’t put a whole article into, but is worth looking at. First, at Castalia House, a review of Rampage and A Quiet Place that tells me the guys who did the trailers nailed it, and I may very well go see those sooner rather than “later or never”. Author of the fantastic  No Gods, Only Daimons, Ben Cheah, writes of the death of the Singapore dream. It’s a similar story as the credentialism among the self styled elites in the states, with the middle class being squeezed out at the top with debt and “get into the Read more »

Ringo on ConCarolinas

Welp. So much for considering Con Carolina. Thanks, assholes. If anyone protesting his invitation, hands down the biggest draw there, thinks that NOT inviting NYT bestselling authors, or pissing on his fans, will ever make them relevant, and that’s assuming they haven’t further stoked our hate for petty tyrants such as those, well… They just opened up some more airflow and added some more fuel to the fires. The link above is to an archive page to minimize Facebook tracking, and I’m including the whole text below for the same reason. Oh, and if you haven’t read it yet, the Read more »

Bearmageddon

Due to a few “bear safety tips” I’d seen posted, I’d finally taken a look at a web comic by Axe Cop creator Ethan Nicolle. What had seriously impressed me, even outside of an interesting story opener that in some ways mimics the slacker opening of Shaun of the Dead, yet feels like it’s not going to go down the same rabbit holes or uplift nihilism, was a post early on beneath one of the early pages: I didn’t realize how small the area I lived in was until I really moved away.  People in the city like to think Read more »

Teachers Are Incompetent – According to Their Supposed Supporters

Teachers Are Incompetent – According to Their Supposed Supporters

Just an example of something that’s come up in response to Trump and others discussing arming teachers: If I can be trusted to teach your kid calculus, I can be trained to handle a firearm. — Archer (@BoraxCross) March 21, 2018 If they can be trusted to teach French they can be trusted to fly a 747. — ZKep (@z_kep) March 21, 2018 Intellectual dishonesty: the tweet. https://t.co/CDKIFRCZSX — Archer (@BoraxCross) March 21, 2018 Not the first time I’ve heard that attitude. Shortly after Sandy Hook, one of the local middle school teachers posted his opinion publicly, and in his, Read more »

Illegals, Guns, and Booze

Illegals, Guns, and Booze

And the problems of finding them. One of the ironies so far has been watching the same crowd on the left that often bemoaned the futility of the drug war, and the stupidity of prohibition – something libertarians and even a fair percentage of those of us on the right have had issues with as well though less so for “conservatives” and the drug war, and something mocked by the modern left as an example of Christian overreach when prohibition was a creature of the same progressive movement that loved to promote fascism, communism, etc., and is an ancestor of Read more »
