It dawns on me: to revere a country's leader, is to make him an idol--to worship a man. Is this why so many people support Trump? that, in a strange way, men worship each other?

OK, wasn't my idea. It was the idea of the guy who did this:


Here we see the King of Morocco being greeted by his subjects (servants at court and the like). The person who uploaded the video brilliantly dubbed over a pre-Islamic chant, of the tribe of 'akk.

A similar dub--this time of Egyptians going around a picture of al-sisi...I'll leave you to figure out what this reminds me of:


 Here are the lyrics:

"All you guys complaining about the possibility of guy on guy relationships...you're also denying us girl on girl.  Works both ways if you know what I mean"

-Jesse Cox

"Your car is Japanese. Your Vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your democracy is Greek. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your movies are American. Your Beers are German. Your shirt is Indian. Your oil is Saudi Arabian. Your electronics are Chinese. Your numbers -Arabic, your letters -Latin. And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant?"

Two instances of trolling of SJW's.

Firstly, we have Sargon trolling the SPLC by reporting an instance of hatespeech against Kekistanis...by the SPLC.


And a very long examination by TL;DR of an epic fake gender studies paper in the style of the 1996 Sokal trolling of Social Text (complete with fake researcher names, a fake research organization, and fake references to fake papers in fake journals generated by the Postmodern Generator, a website created years ago that spews out an algorithmically generated fake social science paper using a method based on Sokal's every time it's reloaded) published in what is claimed to be a respectable social science journal, after a review that was claimed to include a careful check of references.

The first one is pure win.  Seriously, fuck the SPLC. 
The second one had me fooled.  I didn't watch the video, so I thought it was a real study when I first saw it on his channel!  Poe's Law strikes yet again!

The SPLC is quite a piece of work, I'll agree.

Reading the comments to the article TL;DR worked from is instructive.  There are a lot of people trying to condemn the paper's authors on some vague basis that they didn't troll gender studies because the journal they submitted it to didn't publish it because it was detected to be nonsense.  The problem with that claim is that it cannot be correct as they referred the paper to another journal.  The policy indicates that simply not being able to understand a paper isn't grounds for rejecting the paper, so a paper being intentional nonsense isn't going to get it rejected as long as it looks like it should be coherent if you know what it's talking about.  There were LOTS of excellent grounds for rejecting the paper (the fact that the authors, their organization, and many of the cited papers and the journals they appeared in simply don't exist and can be easily verified to not exist all being excellent reasons), they didn't actually check any of them.

Had this one in my Twitter feed recently enough:

"The first lesson of economics is scarcity: There is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics." -- Thomas Sowell

This is the sort of thing which cannot be taught enough times. Opportunity cost and whatnot.
Failing to clean up my own mistakes since the early 80s.

As usual for Blaire, the whole video is made of win, but the bit I like best is at 4:28.


It is so nice to know I'm not the only person who thinks that.  The real question is when will it dawn on the other SJWs that he might be doing that?
