Zombies would act more humane than some of the people we’ve let into Europe.

Depends on who’s talking.
As much as I mock democracy, it’s the best system we have so far, on balance. The older martial systems based on Might Means Right needed some ideological refinement, and if you can’t win in the open war of ideas, you don’t deserve to.
To some people, this is wrong. They make all the excuses – all with the same solution. Lies, threats and violence. Most of these things could easily be considered domestic terrorism, but saying ‘direct action’ polls better for your cause. I’ve noticed as things heat up against the Left, suddenly they want to pull from that old hat the ancient bag of tricks, including suppression of various freedoms to anyone Other, the us vs. them has been chosen over the Equalist dogma. If the Other win, they say, they must be cheating, so it’s okay for us to cheat too.
“All of us unsuccessfully attempted to bring black non-violent direct action trainers down there, and when we got to Ferguson most of the training team were white allies.
We noticed that there was a shortage of black direct action trainers,” Faison said. “We looked at each other and said we need to develop some more folks to train our people and coordinate actions. And from there burst the BlackOUT Collective on the frontlines around 11 o’clock at night in front of the police station.”
Great way to encourage police protection when SHTF
Since then, the collective has helped black communities think through, facilitate, train, and execute numerous direct actions.
They keep chanting non-violent non-violent non-violent like a magic spell. Violence is defined as an inducement by force. There is more to this than physical force, as with blackmail, threat of loss of livelihood, loss of custom to a business, criminal damage costs, legal costs, public damage, and so on.
I’ve listened in on these ‘direct action’ groups and all of them condoned violence …. For the Cause.
All of them wanted to do it. All of them were middle class.
Nobody had the guts. None of them had been in a real fight. These things may be connected.
Without a collective group, they wouldn’t even be talking about it. The Cause isn’t real, I’ve seen this with everything: tuition, banks, green, animals, welfare, drugs. They feel imprisoned by suburbia and think Revolution will provide that excitement. It’s an excuse to …..? Slap daddy? The psychological reasons abound. Most of their parents were divorced, there was a lot of resentment. Not a single happy marriage.
Usually, their reason for not doing it was an excuse from cowardice, of three Greatest Hits – my parents, my trust fund and my criminal record. What would be the backlash? They wanted to go on to have comfy public service jobs and middle class money. They also wanted power. These people were bloodthirsty Machiavelli signalling Gandhi. The sadism seems to get them off, the revenge fantasies of a typical narcissist “we’re going to make them suffer….”, “they’ll be sorry” and “we’ll show them”. Not one would step forward. Empty shark eyes. These people were dead inside and no amount of meds would change that.
“Why are you wearing shades?” someone would ask me. To hide my soul.
“Eye condition.” I have the driest wit.
All r-types. All Lost Boys without the purity of heart. I wonder what will happen to these people.
They acknowledge it is illegal. They acknowledge it might hurt people. The criminal definition of sanity. Yet they are group circles inciting one another, like a cult chanting, that you’ll be forgiven – if it’s For the Cause.
Ironically, they look down on religion.
n.b. Prior to hate speech laws, incitement to any crime was still illegal.
There isn’t really a point to this, I just wanted to let those of you know, who don’t socialize with these people at all (lucky you) what their code-words actually mean. I think, from the way they speak it reminded me of churchgoers, that in former centuries they would’ve been the type to push for Crusades. Yet the brainwashing from school and college has made religion and any other politics impossible in their minds. They might in future require a mass deprogramming effort of some description.
I’d listen silently to the things they’d come out with. Scary shit.
They are the result of social engineering. I pity them, but for public safety and sanity, they must be stopped.
We tell women they’re men and they should fuck like men. This leads them to march down the street in Slut Walks baring their breasts and demanding they be allowed to do so. (It’s already legal in New York, yet they keep doing this protest with no complaints from any men whatsoever.) They demanded we let them burn their bras so we can see their tits better. They insisted we stop seeing them as baby machines, so we banged them until their ovaries dried up and then kicked them to the curb. We’ve got them so brainwashed, they think “vagina” is a sexist term because it excludes women with a penis. We say feminism is empowering, but kick-ass chicks end up 40 and alone with their dog, while you’ll rarely see a happier woman than a young married Catholic chick with three or more kids.
They honestly don’t understand how men work, do they?
(Reuters) – A liberal activist sentenced to prison and flogging in Saudi Arabia will face a first round of lashes on Friday, rights watchdog Amnesty International said on Thursday.
Raif Badawi, who set up the “Free Saudi Liberals” website, was arrested in June 2012 and charged with offences ranging from cyber crime to disobeying his father and apostasy, or abandoning his faith.
He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, a fine of 1 million Saudi riyals ($266,666) and 1,000 lashes last year after prosecutors challenged an earlier sentence of seven years and 600 lashes as too lenient.
“Amnesty International has learned that the imprisoned Saudi Arabian activist Raif Badawi will be flogged in public after Friday prayers tomorrow in front of al-Jafali mosque in Jeddah,” the international rights group said in a statement.
It said Badawi would receive 50 lashes on Friday and the rest of the sentence would be carried out over a period of 50 weeks. His website included articles critical of senior Saudi religious figures and others from Muslim history.
A spokesman for the oil-rich Gulf kingdom’s Justice Ministry was not immediately available for comment.
Saudi Arabia’s legal code follows sharia Muslim law. Judges are trained as religious scholars and have broad scope to base verdicts and sentences on their own interpretation of religious texts.
The country’s territory includes the birthplace of Islam and it adheres to the rigid Wahhabi school, which demands a strict interpretation of sharia and harsh punishments for offences seen as insulting or degrading the religion.
Saudi Arabia on Wednesday condemned the killings of 12 people in an attack on a French satirical newspaper which had lampooned Islam. But it has also in the past called for an international law to criminalize insults to the world’s main religions.
“When interviewed by the Russians, Owen Jones wisely spoke about other things: the Living Wage, housing problems and cost of living, which is related to inflation, wages (and productivity) rather than government cuts. Jones speaks about flexible (or ‘zero hours’) contracts, but knows he can’t complain about unemployment which is dropping like a stone. And to his credit, he also mentioned he’s protesting against repression in Russia.
I suspect he knows that his fellow marchers have got their sums wrong, or perhaps that multi-millionaire types like Russell Brand never much cared about sums in the first place. Britain does have several economic problems, but austerity just isn’t one of them.”
Self-selecting stupidity: If they understood the economy, they wouldn’t be there.
