Destroy SOPA

Seriously, what is at stake is your right to interact; to criticise; to parody; to discuss.

SOPA/PIPA wants to give carte blanche censorship powers to the corporate sector.

No accountability. No responsibility.

The real target is you.

React or submit.

Hollywood creates nothing. Neither does the RIAA. Ask them – have they ever returned a cent to artists by suing dead people and single mothers? They will not answer. They are parasites. Dinosaurs that natural selection is removing from the biosphere. They have no function other than to serve themselves. Herein lies their desperation.

Destroy them.

They are worthless.

So are the politicians that are selling you out.

Register to vote – and remember who’s who.

"They're all rapists!"

I am basically a citizen journalist, and as bad a reputation as that has earned itself (largely due to the kinds of irresponsible idiots we find at freefromthoughtblogs), I like to maintain integrity for my own sake if no one else’s. That is why everything I write is fully referenced and independently verifiable – which is the primary source of grief for the baboons, and most folks that are even remotely interested in journalistic integrity notice that pretty much straight away without being told.

What the relentless stream of bile from the baboons is conspicuous by is complete absence of any kind of evidence or substance. Pointing this out is an endless source of fury for them – the Emperors and Empresses really are naked and can’t hide that fact. They compensate by spinning off the bile into other, viler and equally substance free slanders such is this recent one – (more…)

Yes, it’s nice to blow off steam whining here, ERV, TOA or ‘tardbook etc. but it achieves nothing. Introducing –

The true imbecility of The Naked Emperor, the Pharyngudroid baboon troop and the miscellaneous other demagogue dung merchants that comprise freefromthoughtblogs needs to be catalogued in an ordered and constructive manner for the world to see.

There is still a nonsense impression too many people have that any information bearing the PZ Myers brand is somehow “authoritative”. Haha. Anyone with integrity or dignity needs to get over that real fast, for their own sake. (more…)

Proverb, probably Chaucerian

Good aphorisms never die, they improve with age. Shakespeare expanded on this with his own –

Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind.

The gist is the same – third parties are unnecessary when deep inside, you yourself know you are a slime bag. It is this fragile frame of mind that I think is at the core of the relatively modern addition to our language angst – that amorphous, indistinct feeling of dread, anxiety, or anguish. That horrid, self-critical voice at the back of your mind that won’t shut up – ever – and who’s volume is in direct proportion to the frequency with which you knowingly transgress the strict moral codes you preach to others while you think no one is looking.

This is the plague of all public moralists, especially the shameless populist ones. Naturally, this leads to hypersensitivity to any kind criticism at all. Everything, no matter how trivial or valid, becomes a personal attack and a subversion of their moral authority. Unchecked, this gives way to narcissism and paranoia – and a cultivated conspiratorial state of delusion where they have become important enough for some kind of they to go out of its way to specifically get them.

Which one’s MacKinnon?

Oh how cute – one of the “I really really hate Rebecca Watson” crowd has made a fake Twitter account in order to do a lot of stupid self-implicating tweets as if by Rebecca. Oh haha that’s so funny – what’s next, emptying a pail of garbage in her bed? Locking a skunk in her bathroom? Putting a bomb under her car?

— Our Ophelia, Brevity is the soul of wit

You have to love it. “Freethought”blogs in action. Continuing a proud tradition of cherry-picking and confirmation bias as evidence for truth, Ophelia has blundered onto another nugget of nothing and seizes on it, without any hesitation or any inclination to research it, and immediately exploits it to full strategic advantage. And excess, by conflating criticism of poor innocent Becky Watson with car bombing while she’s at it. No slander is too vile.

Quite unlike those horrid assholes at ERV that she despises with her whole vagina – who similarly saw this item and dismissed it as juvenile, copycat 4channery – Ophelia immediately grasps it uncritically with both fists and declares it evidence because it tells her what she wants to hear – that her suspicions are valid and her assumptions, as always, are right.

The Watsonista spiritual mentor

I wrote this in an earlier post, but did not expand –

It reminds me of an observation made by Peter Sloterdijk in his Critique of Cynical Reason

“The violent, antirationalistic impulse in Western countries is reacting to an intellectual state of affairs in which all thinking has become strategy

This is what we are seeing here – all language and communication reduced to strategy. This is the precursor to all communication is propaganda, or more simply, when communication itself, a two way transfer of unfiltered information1, ceases.

This nonsense dissection of language has nothing to do with discourse or exchange of ideas, and everything to do with finding strategic advantage.

What you say is not relevant. How what you say can be reframed for advantage is.

Communication is reduced to propaganda. It ceases to be communication with any value. (more…)

I’m just speechless. I have nothing to say that has not already been said. This link was passed on to me and I am just recording this because it needs to be preserved

Uhuh. As opposed to the Elevator Guy incident which was an affair that did not get inflated into absurdity by the misandrists enlightened feminist movement. How could everyone have so readily misread Becky’s intent?
