nihilism


SamizdatI myself create it,
edit it,
censor it,
publish it,
distribute it, and …
get imprisoned for it.

Vladimir Bukovsky

samizdat – System whereby literature suppressed by the Soviet government was clandestinely written, printed, and distributed; also, the literature itself. Samizdat began appearing in the 1950s, first in Moscow and Leningrad, then throughout the Soviet Union. It typically took the form of carbon copies of typewritten sheets that were passed from reader to reader. The subjects included dissident activities, protests addressed to the regime, transcripts of political trials, analyses of socioeconomic and cultural themes, and even pornography. Samizdat disappeared when media outlets independent of the government emerged in the early 1990s.Merriam-Webster Concise Encyclopedia (more…)

Benson – still snarlin’

Quite amazing. Ophelia “crazy cunt lady” Benson is an unstoppable machine. Only days after posting the comprehensive study on her linguistic barbarism, she manages to hork up this fur-ball of incoherent snarling in what is pretty much her standard format nowadays, stolen “fair use” quoted text outnumbering her “original” words by ~2:1 (124:72 to be precise in this instance). Here she is spitting and cursing about Saudi plans to electronically monitor the movements of their women, much as privileged westerners track house pets. The article she cites, and others elsewhere, are short on detail as to exactly how the Saudis are going to implement this, but it looks like they are falling short of implanted microchips – (more…)

-= ABSTRACT =-

Westernised professional wailing (唱板板, or “singing the banban”1) as a career and lifestyle choice is one of the most challenging, yet least known, branches of the classical performing arts. It distinguishes itself from its eastern roots – that of professional mourners hired for funerals as public showing of the social status of the deceased – by being far more entrepre’neurial and a business model in its own right. It is a complex, multidisciplinary form of expression that distills the finer subtleties from Munchausen Syndrome and certain aspects of HPD into its own unique brand psychodramatic theatre. Notable laureates of this school have been Glenn Beck, Anita Bryant, Joseph McCarthy, Jenny McCarthy (no relation), Catharine MacKinnon and Fred Phelps – those that have taken the mundane, the nonsensical and the nonexistant and, through applied hyperbole, hysteria and robotic repetition of fear-mongering and artificial “us and them” division, have escalated non-problems to the status of cancers that threaten to undermine society itself, thus ensnaring and captivating an audience of the feeble and the powerless that are incapable of articulating their bottled up angst unassisted. As with all styles of thespian expression, language is the primary tool and here the language of demonisation and persecution is the key to establishing a stage presence and an unforgettable persona in the eyes of the target audience. Yet this language is too seldom analysed, let alone quantified. This paper attempts to enumerate the frequency with which the language of demonisation and persecution occurs in one particular contemporary ideological ghetto – that of the collective that has formed around freefromthoughtblogs, Skepchick and it’s mutant offspring Atheism+.

Demonisation of the other is as old a human pursuit as exchanging sex for personal advantage and the quest for mind altering chemicals. Common motivators are personal power plays, petty revenge or the common malice of the Queen bee high school girl. The unacknowledged motivator however is to accentuate the alleged shortcomings of the other, which almost always are trivial in comparison to the character failures of the finger pointer, and thus distract from where the real rot lies.

Zwan’s anti-Justin Vacula petition is a prime example. As discussed previously, this is a case of a pretty worthless exhibit of humanity lacking both the skill and intellect to contribute anything meaningful to life exercising jealous spite to skewer someone that does. And in the broader freefromthoughtblogs perspective, it looks like a case of Goldilocks and the Three Gallows(more…)

Funny how appropriate images tend to find you

Another day, another new low from freefromthoughtblogs. It’s become a race to the bottom to see who can be the viler piece of shit. Sulky Amy (who kicks ass on a daily basis) made a superhuman effort, firstly with her crocodile tears at this years TAM, followed by her spurious DMCA takedown party (copies of notices). But now, Stefanny Zwan is going for gold by launching a petition against a fellow community member, a person that actually does stuff other than whine and wallow in self pity1, Justin Vacula

Secular Coalition for America: Remove Justin Vacula from a leadership position in the PA chapter of SCA

(On the off chance that change.org actually does take down petitions that serve no purpose other than to defame, a mirror of the petition can be seen here)

The immediate absurdity is, of course, how Zwan, or any baboon blogger (let alone any of the minions of subnormals that constitute their readership), could ever declare anyone as being “unfit for any leadership position” – a sentiment parroted ad nauseam in the comment section, as per patented FfTB synchronised individuality – the absurdity being the implication that one of their own could somehow be more “worthy”.

AtheismPlus – synchronised individuality

This is incredibly amusing.

Some weeks ago, the Naked Emperor, coming down with a case of gretachristinitis, trumpeted the addition a co-dependentblogger to the original baboon board – one Chris Clarke who is, apparently, “a phenomenal writer, a true progressive, and a committed environmentalist” – but regardless, Myers’ private little North Korea has been chugging along, business as usual. As a follow-up to Myers’ most recent outburst of demagogue tripe, reader Quawonk deposited this latest dung ball in a comment here

“I do get how uncomfortable it can be to have data accumulate against a proposition which you desperately wanted to be true.”

Gobsmacking as usual. This is not a sudden epiphany of personal revulsion, but just another shallow dig at horrible MRAs – the socially acceptable Jewish substitute for the freefromthoughtblogs Sturmabteilung. Either completely devoid of self-awareness, or conscious of the hypocrisy and simply not caring – end result is still the same. This piece of nonsense can be found at the following link, and it is recommended to read it for yourself prior to proceeding –

“pssst, franc did it…”

Baboons are so giving. Within a day of the Survival Guide post, they have barfed up some perfect examples of exactly how vile they can be when they gather in their echo chamber and start their paranoid whispers about how cruel the world is to them.

The first is merely amusing. The fact that Reddit Atheism+, much like freefromthoughtblogs and skepchick, is being censored with the zeal of a North Korean newspaper is a given and not a surprise to anyone. What is a surprise though (at least to me) is that they found a way to disable the Reddit post “dislike” arrow. I guess clicking the “dislike” arrow on what someone says is a coat of paint away from violent rape at knife point – if you listen to Marcotte and Skeptifem enough it is anyway. So they removed it.

There is a special added bonus with this to boot – now, r/atheism+ can really state that EVERYONE agrees with what they say, and technically, they will be telling the truth. Who says the Naked Emperor can’t teach new tricks? This style of lie-that-isn’t-really-a-lie is his main area of expertise. (more…)
