I've never seen anyone at a socialist rally who knew anything about what socialism entails or what invariably happens (or even that the plan of the communist parties on taking over any other country generally started with murdering the existing local communist party members).

They don't even understand their own. How many times have people questioned people at a socialist rally who didn't have the first clue what socialism actually means?

It isn't surprising Antifa would love many of Hitler's policies while not knowing that they're Hitler's policies.  There was that study a while back that showed that, in general, those further to the left were less likely to be able to accurately describe other political positions than those further to the right.  This suggests that the echo-chamber effect is not as strong on the right at this time as it is on the left.  Antifa have the strongest echo-chamber, given that they will attempt to kill anyone who doesn't agree with them.

Nothing like a tax on housing to make housing more affordable...

And, of course, nothing to reign in local governments refusing to allow any housing to be built.  (I'm looking at YOU, Palo Alto!  You've had this problem for DECADES because you won't allow more housing to be built!)

Summary: In order to build up state funds to promote more affordable housing, the California Senate has voted to add a $75 fee (tax) to most real estate documents.

I can't roll my eyes enough at this.

General Discussion / Re: Fail Quotes

I hadn't heard of this "Tariq Nasheed" until someone pointed him out on my Twitter feed. Apparently he's some sort of anti-white supremacist/black supremacist or somesuch who's decided to create a website to track suspected white supremacists (9_9), but the fail in question surrounds the logo for this website, which... well, take a look.



Tariq is so adamant that his logo is not a swastika that he's trying to hide it, deleting his tweet advertising the website as well as shutting the website down, at least for the time being. Of course, this has led to said tweet and logo getting re-posted by others multiple times in a clear example of the Streisand Effect. Doesn't help that he's notably silent when anyone asks what his logo looks like.

On a personal note, there were enough people who thought it was meant to be a swastika for the ironic value that I think he would've had an easier time claiming that was his intention all along.

And going after Philip DeFranco isn't likely a terribly smart move, either.  He's got the money and the profile to flatten Tariq in court if he wants to.  Phil's quite right, this is a potentially lethal thing Tariq's doing here.  Phil might not have a lot of choice but to do something about it.
