Abortion to Racism, How Did Ralph Northam Get Here?

Ralph Northam, Governor of Virginia, has made a lot of people very angry.  It all started with the video below, meet Kathy Tran, discussing an abortion bill with lawmakers.

The conservatives were really upset by this (as they should be).  She is talking about woman having the choice to abort a baby up until birth, even as the mother is in labor.  I fall in the category of that is a baby and we should not be killing babies, so I was not happy with all this and believed he should either not be supporting this.  But this isn’t about me, lets move on.  The next video is Ralph Northam in an interview, and is asked about his position on the law Kathy Tran was discussing.

As you can see, he started getting into some even more controversial abortions, killing babies after birth due to deformities.  This got everyone talking about how Democrats and leftists (politically) are pushing for infanticide, the killing of infants.

Right after that interview, this yearbook page (from the 1980’s) started getting shown around social media.

This is a page dedicated to Ralph, and has a picture of someone in a KKK outfit along with a “black” person.  Tim Pool speculates that he is the “black” person because he is quite taller than the average person, and if it were the other way around, the other guy would be around the mid 6 feet tall… also this!

Yes, that is right, Ralph “Coonman” Northam.  GOT HIM! He is a RACIST, and that is what is important!  Racists use to call black people “coons”.  I never really got it, but whatever.

Kamala Harris is one of the many Democrats already running for the US Presidency, and as you can see, she is calling for him to step down.  Not because of his views on abortion, but because he was racist in the 80’s.  So was it all said and done?  Nope…

He issued an apology.  All should be well and done now… Well my friends, you would be wrong again.

If you skipped the 8 minute video, he basically says it wasn’t him and he isn’t going to resign.

That is the gist of what is going on with the Northam scandal.  It’s a really dumb scandal, because people aren’t mad about him talking about letting doctors kill babies with deformities.  Nope, infanticide is just fine with the democrats and the radical political left, but a racist picture of him from 35 years ago, that’s just too far.  I wish I seen more people talking about in this context, but getting someone who supports an aggressive abortion practice like this, I guess the ends would justify the means.

And that is how Ralph Northam got himself into hot water with both sides of the political spectrum.  Piss the cons off with the terrible abortion talk, and piss the libs off with the terrible racist picture.  This is still unfolding, if anyone has any more information, leave it in the comments.

What Happens When We Get Bored of the News

When there is SO much news all the time, what happens when we get a little reprieve from it?  You get this gem…

I guess posting an uneventful video and calling the Vice President a homophobe is what we do.  I’ve watched the video a few times, and I see nothing strange in this video.  How indoctrinated or bored must you be to post this video as “proof” Mike Pence is a homophobe?  Or does the poster not care about it being proof and just wanted to claim Pence is a homophobe?  I think this video would prove that he isn’t.  A true homophobe would have thrown a tantrum.

People just throw these negative labels out with such whim anymore.  To put this “label” of homophobic in perspective, have you ever been around someone scared of spiders?  Imagine If Pence suffered from arachnophobia and Sinema were a spider, do you think he’d be smiling and be able to act professionally?  The answer is no, he would be screaming and running away from her.

The NPC Meme Is for Free Thinkers

I LOVE this!  No meme has hit me quite like this NPC (Or Non Playable Character) meme.  In my real life store, I constantly have people talking about the same things.  Let’s take the weather for example, about half of my total interactions consists of, “it’s nice out” or “it’s terrible out”.  The hoards of people that do this is astounding.  There are a lot of people that just aren’t as clever as they think they are.

What is the NPC meme?  Basically it is used to show how there are so many people out there who don’t seem to have original thoughts, so they just spout whatever they see others, or the media, say or do.  Like a programmable robot.  The term NPC comes from video games, they can range from; generic characters that give small bits of lore or information, task givers that will reward the player after a completed goal, or even as an obstacle that blocks the players way.  If the game has multiple characters you can play/recruit, the NPC’s can be distinguished from their often dull, repetitive or ordinary looks and can only repeat a few lines of dialogue, unless there is a special event or cut-scene.

Now that I have seen the NPC meme, and I understand it.  I can’t help but think of a lot of people like that, especially the ones that show the exact same behavior as others.  let’s not forget to mention people online screaming “bot” or “Nazi” every time you make an argument they don’t like.  The political left and Social Justice Warriors have claimed this to be an attack on them, but really it’s an attack on anyone who isn’t a free thinker.  That goes both ways people!

This really hits on what Kanye West has been tackling for the passed year, free thinking.  People who are mad at him for saying “You don’t have to vote Democrat if you are black”, are NPC’s.  Just because Kanye likes Trump doesn’t mean you have to, and Kanye can like whoever the hell he wants.  There is no reason to blindly follow others and let them act as your brain.  Be a thinker, not an NPC!

Leaving the Internet for Two weeks

Since I was a young teenager, the internet has been a large part of my life.  I’ve always been an avid consumer of whats on the net, I cord cut cable before it was cool, I played MMOs that were text based before World of Warcraft, I’ve digitized my DVD library before streaming services came around, I even used my PC to text my friends before smart phones were big.  I’ve always been big into tech and gadgets, and there has been very few times in my life I wasn’t connected to the internet.  Now I have two discord servers, Twitter, Facebook, Gab, PlayStation, Xbox Live and steam, all with different friends, and different people contacting me all the time.  I haven’t even watched a YouTube video.  I don’t really use Facebook anymore, it’s pretty much there for personal friends to contact me.  All the others I use pseudo-names, mostly to keep my family from being harassed, and the anonymity lets me express things I normally would filter.  For example, I’m pretty politically open on Twitter, but not on Facebook, for reasons like those found here.

Well for the last two weeks, I didn’t log into any of those (with the exception of my PlayStation, but I didn’t play any social games like Warframe like I normally do).  You could call it a internet cleanse, and I honestly don’t really want to go back to being a heavy user of some of these services like I used to be.  I feel a lot less stressed, I am more focused at work, I feel more positive and motivated everyday.  The constant barrage of news seems to have caused such a drain on my mental state prior to these last couple weeks.  And what did I miss?  People are still freaking out about the Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS nomination.  People are still freaking out that Trump is the President.  Everyone is still a racist and Russian bot.  Nothing has changed, all the outrage is still there, yet I feel better and happier.

I’m here to proclaim that news fatigue is real, and everyone should do themselves a favor and take some time out of Social Networks.  Use the time to meditate, clean your room, ask your spouse some questions, play with your kids, talk with your parents.  There are more pressing issues in life than what Trump tweets.

 

Tech Companies Know Better Than You

Twitter, the final holdout of the big tech companies, has finally banned Alex Jones and Infowars.  But that isn’t what we are going to talk about today.  I want to discuss what they are really doing when they ban people like Alex Jones from their platforms – They know better than you.  It is truly silly to ban people from, especially, Twitter, because they have mute and block buttons already, why does the company have to go that extra mile and erase people?  It makes no sense when you think of the “publisher” or “platform” problem they may soon face.  if they are publishers, they are responsible for everything content creators make and push on their sites.  So if someone tried to sue Twitter for something Alex Jones does, than Twitter would have to take responsibility and cover him under their legal umbrella.  So, as a publisher, it would make sense if they ban Infowars.  But as a platform, which is what Facebook, YouTube and Twitter claim to be, they are not there to police people and anything they do they are not responsible for.  Which is the way it should be, but does that give them the right to ban Infowars?  Absolutely, but it’s a mistake, they will lose the trust of people if they police content they disagree with, instead of letting us use the tools they give us, to either elevate them or block them.  They do this, because they know better than you.  Free speech needs to stay alive, and the big tech companies need to stay neutral, or our internet as we know it, is gone.

Infowars may be banned from the large services, but you can still find them.  They have a bitchute channel, or just go to infowars.com

Twitter Hearing Retaliations

Twitter was meeting with congress about censors on it’s network.  They’ve been under a lot of heat recently for suppressing conservatives.  But that isn’t what we are here to talk about today.  During the hearing, this happened…

Am I crazy, or was this one of the worst ways to deal with a protester?  Drown out the protester by doing an auction?  One example is she can now claim sexual harassment for him trying to sell her, I hear this #MeToo thing is big.  Also the irony, this hearing was about Twitter shutting down conservative voices, and he shut her voice down with an auction?

The woman yelling is Laura Loomer.  Shes an undercover journalist who clearly isn’t shy about confronting people.  She also recently confronted Maxine Waters for inciting violence against Trump supporters.  She also happens to be another person labeled alt and far right, which drives me crazy because they are using these words for the singular purpose to label someone discredited, and not their true meaning.  Far right really means nothing, but “alt” right is directly coined by Richard Spencer.  I have not done the research myself on him, so I will not attribute any labels to him.  To me, to be considered alt-right, is something you would have to sign up for, or be a follower of Richard Spencer.

Since this incident at congress, it would appear that Twitter is taking a strange offensive tactic with Laura.

 

We have two very strange scenarios here.  Either Loomer is actively reporting articles and people that support her, or Twitter is reporting them… for her?  This seems like a strange way to retaliate since I don’t think Twitter tells people who reported them.  This is going to be a very interesting fight, and both scenarios are quite damning.

Propaganda is Everywhere

Vox.com is a “news” outlet. They are also propaganda, there are loads and loads of Vox debunking videos on YouTube. This is one of their latest propaganda

It’s so steeped in crap, they actually wrote a debunking article of a debunking video that debunks their original article. I’ve watched too many Ben Shapiro, Milo Yianopolis and Jordan Peterson videos to know that free speech on campus is dying. This is a long video, but it is worth the watch, and just by being online proves my point that they are just spewing propaganda.

Typically they move the speech somewhere that doesn’t fit many people and/or off campus. It’s depressing colleges are like this, they are supposed to be THE place to be to exchange ideas, but instead now they just pander and make “safe spaces”. Colleges are like a dead corpse, whats left at campuses are the hair and nails that keep growing.

Keep thinking for yourself, and be aware of the propaganda around you. It’s everywhere!
