First! Please respond to my OT on the previous thread if you have any ideas. Thanks!

Jack is Back!

marlene,

I remember seeing a coffee table size book on the famous New Zealand All Black Rugby team when I was in London. I think I saw it at either Daunts or Waterstones. Let me check and see if they still have it.

NBC is going to give a promo for antifa on "Meet the Press" tomorrow. Mark Bray is a scheduled guest, pimping his new antifa book.

marlene,

Sent you and email.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I suppose that this big article in The Atlantic print edition was simply a coincidence.

Funny how there are all of these coincidences, like the two Indianapolis Star reporters just happening to be in Charlottesville and caught in the middle of the violence.

Extraneus

I find Beinart a rather infuriating asshole. Is it ok to punch him?

Marlene,
I did a quick google search and there are some NZ landscape coffee table books.

Beinart seems to be the new Krugman for JOM. I hope someone who has more time and patience than I do can scrutinize that ADL classification of murders that he cites. I'd be willing to wager it's not exactly objective.

Captain Hate

It’s no coincidence that it was a Nazi sympathizer—and not an antifa activist—who committed murder in Charlottesville.

Soooo, he's already been convicted of murder, Beinart? I'm not sure he didn't do anything more than panic when he and his car were being set upon by masked dipshits with baseball bats. It's not like he was shooting a rifle at a softball practice, Beinart. Or shooting at people at an outside political meet and greet, like Jared Loughner.

Fuck off, Beinart and your fake news rag. Own the violence that your Antifa heroes are inflicting.

Jack is Back!

Mark Bray is a scheduled guest, pimping his new antifa book.

I wonder if Antifa is going to turn into the left's version of a Militia group by state? Is that their objective and then be legitmized by the Dems and SPLC? It seems thats the direction they are taking as is their sponsors.

Soros must be scared and panicing because all the other tactics don't seem to be working.

Beinart lives in a beinary world.

Too many words for me. I lose interest in his writings, even when cut into smaller bits and pieces by TM. And where the hell he gets the idea that White Supremacists have inordinate power in America compared to the Media darling mobs of OWS/Antifa/BLM etc is lunacy.

And what the hell does this mean?

It’s no coincidence that it was a Nazi sympathizer—and not an antifa activist—who committed murder in Charlottesville.

Why?

Mto2, from TM, earlier:
I am weaning off of my pain meds as well as I can. I was on Dialudid, morphine, and Oxycodone. I'm taking less than 1/2 of my hospital dose of Oxycodone presently. I'm adding 30 min. to 1 hour between doses.

Best wishes and hang in there M2M, but do keep in mind: Don't be a hero about those pain meds.

I don't claim to be a pain savant but I've been told (and neuroscience says) that pain can be like a habit, in that once the neural pathways are formed the re-experience of pain becomes much easier.

Conversely, if the pain meds keep the severe pain at bay your brain won't develop a knack for experiencing severe pain.

Not to argue with our host, who is correct about pain being able to set up recurrent "loops," but narcotics are far from the only way to diminish your pain.

Multimodal is most definitely the way to go. Besides your narcs, cold packs or heat; tylenol if you can take it; NSAIDs IF allowed--some orthopods think they interfere with bone healing, so check w your neurosurgeon--and comedies, music, conversation, whatever to reduce anxiety. Fish oil helps reduce inflammation too.

I am all for you diminishing the oxy as you can, and unlike TM, I am a doctor. ;-)

Do what you need to make a comfortable "nest" so you can sleep. I used seven pillows (two for each arm, three behind me) when this side sleeper had to sleep on my back when I blew out my knee skiing.

You and kev are in my prayers. Thank you for the update. keep us posted!

SPLC and Antifa on MSNBC appears to be a preview or rehearsal for Meet the Press. Same two guests. The president of SPLC isn't bothered by Antifa's preemptive resort to force of violence.

Frau Steingehirn

jimmyk - you wondered about the permits of the two groups in Charlottesville. From what I've read is the U-Right group had one for limited hours in the Emancipation Park. The anti-protesters either had *none* or had one for somewhere else around town - Justice Park?.

In his interview with Secretary Moran on Monday, Katz pointed out that the “Unite the Right” rally attendees gathered inside Emancipation Park at the time had a legal permit to assemble there, while the counter-protesters on the street immediately in front of the park did not have a permit to conduct a protest or assemble there.

“Is there any reason why the people without the permit were not immediately dispersed?” Katz asked of Moran.


Mr. Katz practiced his flak-catching responses throughout: "Well, we’ll review all of this."
Two Breitbart articles cover events. The interview with the VA Public Safety official is interesting because it reveals the sudden appearance of the large group of anti-protesters "from all over the count" joining what was already assembled in town.
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/17/virginia-secretary-of-public-safety-confirms-gov-mcauliffe-made-the-decision-to-shut-things-down/
Earlier Breitbart timeline:
"Instances of violence took place early at Justice Park, which another organization had been legally permitted for, as this tweet sent by the ACLU of Virginia confirmed."Not sure who provoked first. Both sides were hitting each other at Justice Park before police arrived."

Breibart asked but received no answer to its question:

6. Why did the Chief of Police not simultaneously declare the adjacent permitted demonstration as an unlawful assembly at the same time?

Oh geez. The local news just did a story about Bowdoin College removing a Confederate plaque. Jefferson Davis received an honorary degree from Bowdoin. Of course, the Civil War hero Joshua Chamberlain attended and taught at Bowdoin. BLM founder DeRay McKesson attended Bowdoin. One of these things is not like the other. The world is upside down.

matt, deplore me if you must

So the San Bernardino attack, the Boston attack, The Orlando attack, the Ft Hood attack, Ft Lauderdale, Alexandria and the others don't count as hate crimes? We they "like" crimes?

I'd say those murderers were hatin' pretty hard.

Were the Dallas and Baton Rouge and other LE attacks like crimes?

It would seem to me that Mr Beinart and his sources are very narrowly defining what a hate crime is.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

State of the Union was just on TCM with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.

UNLIKE our current president, Spencer Tracy gets conned into using POLITICAL CONSULTANTS who tell him to do what THE ELECTED OFFICIALS want, and they are all corrupt, including the union labor leader.

Except for the fact that Spencer tracy was for one world government for peace (this was right after WWII so understandable) I would bet cash money this movie is buried somewhere in the childhood memory of President Trump and he thought to himself "I'm not going to be like that guy!" LOL!

Also an interesting fact: the role of Tracy's wife was supposed to be played by another star, but she refused to stay on the set past 5PM so they let her go and hired Hepburn, who was famously very liberal. Adolph Monjou refused to talk to her, because he was fervently anti-Communist and supported the House Unamerican Activities Committee.

So now we can fondly remember Adolph Monjou, who had the right idea!

Red Gurads ... that was the term I was looking for, Red Guards ... they were the student leaders of the Cultural Revolution as they went about attacking the 4 Olds: Old Customs, Old Ideas, Old Culture, and Old Habits.

Their reward was "rustification" as they were eventually shuttled off to the countryside and this vale of tears.

Yesterday I talked about how there is a memorial with the names of the Confederate prisoners in Garfield Park, which is near me. It was all over the news and on the front page of the paper, because (no doubt having combed the entire city looking for something, anything Confederate that our democrat mayor could virtue signal about, this was the ONLY thing that they could find.

It is a marker which was originally over a mass grave. All it is is a pillar with a ball finial and the names of the dead prisoners with a notation that they died while prisoners of the Union Army. Thats it. Just a list of names.

They had decided to have a committee decide wht to do with it, probably just move it to Crown Hill Cemetery, which is where the bodies were reinterred after exhumiing them from their first resting place when Camp Morton was closed and the property sold to private developers back in the late 19th century.

But, of course, our brave anti-Confederate social justice warriors vandalized the piece last night.

I have a theory about the statue removal and this latest set-up in. Charlottesville.
The South voted overwhelmingly for President Trump.
By destroying their heritage via moving or destroying the memorial statues the Left gets its revenge on the South for not voting for Hillary.
Remember John Kerry stating he didn't need the South to win.
This whole Antifa movement is a loser.
Democrats continue to marginalize themselves.

I took a quick look at that ADL study. For one thing, it appears to rely on the 'hate crime' designation for murders, which we know is more likely to be invoked when a black or other minority is the victim than the perp. They do count Islamic extremism in its own category, and in 2015 and 2016 that was the biggest, because of San Bernadino, Chattanooga, and Orlando.

So the Spanish authorities should have known something was brewing for months ahead of the attacks, but "that's not who we are." That's consistent with what I said about the house explosion--that should have been a big warning to go on high alert, and instead they first assumed it was an innocent gas explosion.
