Twitter, der bannede Donald Trump, har ingen problemer med Taliban-talsmand Zabihullah Mujahid…

Folkevalgte Donald Trump fik lukket sin Twitter-konto tidligere på året, da hans opdateringer ifølge det sociale medie opfordrede til vold. Twitter har til gengæld ingen problemer med Zabihullah Mujahid, officiel talsmand for Taliban-bevægelsen, der rutinemæssigt tager ansvar for myrderier, og dagligt hylder bevæbnede jihadister.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” (Twitter, 8. januar 2021)

“As a Taliban spokesman, Mujahid communicates Taliban’s message to Afghan and other international media. He is also responsible for confirming or denying group’s involvement in attacks across Afghanistan. On he also releases several propaganda videos on his twitter account showing Taliban’s achievements throughout the conflict. … On 21 January 2019, Mujahid claimed responsibility for an attack on training centre of National Directorate of Security (NDS) which killed over 100 security personnel.

Om hvordan woke-venstre kæmper for ‘radical societal changes’, “… cow into silence all opposition”

Artiklen er lang, og bør læses i sin helhed. Michael Anton gør det lidt nemmere at forstå woke-venstre, og strategien der eksempelvis har medført, at venstreradikal queer-ideologi i dag er god tone langt inde i borgerlige rækker. Jeg er vild med hans kompromisløshed: “… understand this: they hate you and want you cancelled and ostracized… You owe them no consideration.” Set hos American Mind – A quick and dirty guide to regime propaganda (Via Ryan Smith).

“Gaslighting getting you down? Feel like the regime has dialed the Megaphone up to, and past, eleven? You’re not crazy. It’s definitely happening… to help you navigate the twitstorm, I present a guide to seven of the regime’s most common, oft-deployed lies. This is not meant to be comprehensive. I’m sure there are tactics they use that either I haven’t crystalized or that aren’t front-of-mind at the moment. I encourage others to expand the catalogue with their own observations. The better we can understand how they try to manipulate us, the better we can resist and counter it all.

Let’s start with the Unholy Trinity of ruling class horse manure. These first three are similar, but subtle differences determine the ways they’re used in differing circumstances.

The Law of Merited Impossibility

The coinage is Rod Dreher’s and goes back to the early debates on homosexual marriage. As Dreher formulates it, the Law of Merited Impossibility holds: ‘That will never happen, and when it does, boy will you [homophobes, transphobes, racists, sexists, whatever] deserve it.’

This Law is used, first, to disarm resistance to the latest leftist enthusiasm. Whatever the innovation is, it will have no adverse consequences. None! Puberty blockers and disfiguring surgeries have no downsides whatsoever. How dare you suggest they might!

Its second purpose is to dismiss out of hand ’slippery slope’ arguments—despite, or because of, the fact that every single such argument over the last twenty years at least has proved true. …

The third purpose is to enforce the new caste system. Those who get to impose fresh irrational indignities on the rest of us are the upper caste. Those who object, or even have reservations, are lower. The latter are not allowed to harbor, much less express, any doubts. Whatever humiliation the upper caste has planned for us, we deserve and must meekly accept. …

The Law of Merited Impossibility has done wonders for the Left in helping to ram through a wide variety of radical societal changes and cow into silence all opposition. It’s currently busy destroying girls’ and women’s sports…

[…]

The Celebration Parallax

… One need not actually, clearly oppose the subject under discussion in order to be blameworthy. Declining or neglecting to celebrate it forcefully enough is enough. As in Stalin’s Russia, lack of enthusiastic clapping is regarded as opposition. The legitimacy of one’s right to state the same identical fact, in the same identical language, depends on who one is and what one thinks of it. …

On no subject is the Parallax more prevalent than immigration. Depending on who’s doing the talking, the demographic transformation of the United States is either a glorious trend that portends a permanent Democratic majority and a more ‘vibrant’ future, or else a ‘conspiracy theory’ that is not happening in any way at all, no-how.

The Left insists that concerns from certain quarters that immigration policy in America (and Europe) amounts to a ‘great replacement’ is a ‘dangerous,’ ‘evil,’ ‘racist,’ ‘false’ ‘conspiracy theory.’ But a leftist New York Times columnist can write an article entitled ‘We Can Replace Them’ and … nothing. …

The Smails Exhortation

… Our masters bleat about ‘democracy’ but have redefined the word to mean ‘getting exactly what we’—i.e., they—’want.’ Any ostensibly ‘democratic’ outcome that might result in us getting what we want is ipso facto illegitimate. Border wall? Fascist! Immigration enforcement? Racist and fascist! Law and order? Double racist and fascist! Better trade deals? Economically illiterate! An end to endless wars? Catastrophic! And also, somehow, ‘anti-Semitic.’ Penis-free girls’ bathrooms? Transphobic!

No matter is too small, too local, too private, or too inconsequential to escape their gaze and slip their punishment. Bake the cake, bigot. Mostly what they bleat, though, is anti-American, anti-white, anti-conservative, anti-Christian, anti-rural, anti-Southern, anti-Red-state, anti-redneck, anti-working-class hate. Every media organ and cultural citadel blares this message loudly and incessantly.

The purpose is hard to figure. On one hand, it’s demoralizing, which certainly serves ruling class ends, and it fires up their coalition. On the other hand, if you’re trying to boil a frog, it’s best not to tell him the plan, as he might try to jump out of the pot.

understand this: they hate you and want you cancelled and ostracized, or at least utterly subservient and obedient. You owe them no consideration. Their every argument, every sentence, every word are proffered in bad faith. As Mary McCarthy said of Lilian Hellman, ‘Every word she writes is a lie—including ‘and’ and ‘the.”

The regime is powerful, which means we must calibrate our resistance carefully. But to think clearly, our minds must be free. Which requires understanding its rhetoric and seeing through it. I hope this short guide is useful in that effort.”

Wagenknecht: ‘For de venstreliberale er enhver, der afviger fra deres værdigrundlag en dårlig person’

Die Linkes Sahra Wagenknecht har skrevet flere bøger, og hendes seneste ‘De selvretfærdige – mit modsvar: for fællesfølelse og sammenhold’ udkommer på dansk senere på måneden. Hun er venstreorienteret, men gør åben front mod woke-venstrefløjen. Netavisen Pio har offentliggjort et uddrag, og det er befriende læsning – Venstrefløjspolitiker: Livsstilssocialisterne lever i anden verden.

“Det, der i manges øjne gør livsstilssocialisterne usympatiske, især blandt de dårligere stillede, er deres åbenlyse hang til at betragte deres privilegier som personlige dyder og i samme åndedrag erklære deres verdensbillede og livsstil for indbegrebet af progressivitet og ansvar.

Det er deres moralsk overlegne selvtilfredshed, når de skamløst udstiller deres klippefaste tro på, at de befinder sig på de godes, de retfærdiges og de fornuftiges side.

Det er deres nedladende arrogance over for den livsverden, de omstændigheder og ovenikøbet det sprog, som er karakteristisk for folk, der aldrig har gået på universitetet. …

Og det er den karakteristiske mangel på medfølelse med folk, der er nødt til at kæmpe meget hårdere for deres velstand, i det omfang man kan tale om en sådan, og som af samme grund ofte virker mere tilknappede og vrede.

Deres hykleri, som de har svært ved helt at skjule, bidrager også til livsstilssocialisternes problematiske billede i offentligheden. Har man kun lige råd til en enkelt ferie om året på grund af en dårlig løn, eller må man leve af en lille pension, selvom man har arbejdet hele livet, så ser man ikke så velvilligt på det, når andre, der aldrig har manglet noget, prædiker afholdenhed for en.

Og det er i hvert fald de færreste, der lytter, når de folk, der belærende fortæller os, at indvandringen er en stor gevinst for samfundet, er de selvsamme mennesker, der sætter deres eget barn i en skole, hvor det eneste møde med fremmede kulturer finder sted i litteraturundervisningen.

[…]

Den uhøflige opførsel skyldes, at venstreliberalismen ifølge tilhængernes egen opfattelse ikke er baseret på meninger, men simpelthen er et spørgsmål om anstændighed. For de venstreliberale er enhver, der afviger fra deres værdigrundlag, ikke en anderledes tænkende, men derimod en dårlig person, måske er han endda menneskefjendsk eller nazist.

Dette perspektiv forklarer den aggression, hvormed de bekæmper ikke blot overbevisninger, men også mennesker, der holdningsmæssigt befinder sig uden for det venstreliberale verdensbillede, eller bare krænker et af deres hellige bud. For livsstilssocialister er egentlig kun liberale, når de selv, eller deres meningsfæller, skal sige det.

[…]

Den udbredte usikkerhed skyldes muligvis også, at mange af de synspunkter, som de venstreliberale har sat på forbudslisten, ofte netop er de synspunkter, der deles og bifaldes af store dele – nogle gange endda flertallet – af befolkningen.

Undersøgelser i alle vestlige lande har således vist, at 60 til 70 procent af befolkningen afviser øget indvandring og ønsker mere restriktiv lovgivning.

Alene det synspunkt er i venstreliberale kredse nok til officielt at blive betragtet som racist. Folk, der føler sig utrygge, når de støder på en større gruppe mænd, der taler et fremmed sprog i den offentlige transport, putter de i samme skuffe.

Da disse ressentimenter er udbredte, er der i de venstreliberale kredse opstået et samlebegreb for dem, her kaldes de for hverdagsracisme. For livsstilssocialisterne står det nemlig helt klart, at alle disse ‘misantropers frygt og bekymringer er helt uden hold i virkeligheden’, som sociologen Harald Welzer valgte at formulere det.

… hvis man forventer, at ens regering primært tænker på sin egen befolknings velfærd og beskytter den mod international løndumping og andre negative følgevirkninger af globaliseringen – en grundtanke, der var helt selvfølgelig for traditionelle venstreorienterede – er man nu nationalsocial, og nogle gange endda med endelsen -istisk.

Cubanere demonstrerer mod landets kommunistiske diktatur: CNN-reporter giver Trump ’skylden’…

Enkelte danske medier har fundet tid til at skrive om de igangværende demonstrationer i kommunistiske Cuba. “‘Ned med diktaturet!’ lød det blandt andet fra flere af demonstranterne.”, ifølge DR Online. CNN-korrespondent Kaitlan Collins valgte at give Trump skylden, og kritisere Biden for at ikke droppe Trumps økonomiske sanktioner. Set hos The Post Millennial – WATCH: CNN reporter blames Trump for Cuba’s protests—not the communist regime.

“At the White House press briefing Monday, a CNN reporter blamed Trump for the anti-communism protests in Cuba, instead of the island’s communist regime.

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins noted how President Joe Biden’s press statement Monday on the Cuba protests described a call for relief from ‘the tragic grip of the pandemic.’ Collin pivoted to question why current sanctions that were put in place by Trump have not been changed by Biden.

‘So why is the Biden administration continuing that policy?’ Collins asked, emphasizing that exiles cannot send aid to family still living in Cuba.

… Dissatisfied with the vague response, Collins live tweeted Psaki’s reply. ‘The White House offers no update on any changes to the administration’s Cuba policy. President Biden promised on the campaign trail to reverse the restrictive measures put in place by former President Trump,’ she wrote on Twitter.

After the weekend uprisings in Cuba when citizens of the nation took to the streets to demand liberty and freedom, the Biden administration claimed at the same White House presser that recent efforts had more to do with concerns over the rise in COVID-19 cases on the island than an impassioned desire for regime change.

‘I would say that when people are out there in the streets protesting, and complaining about the lack of access to economic prosperity, to the medical supplies they need, to the life they deserve to live, that can take on a range of meanings. There’s a global pandemic right now, most people on the ground don’t have access to vaccines, that’s something we’d love to help with,’ White House press secretary Jen Psaki answered Fox News journalist Peter Doocy.”

USA: Transseksuel OL-atlet – “My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium.”

Woke-ideologien formår ikke selv at sætte grænser, men lige med hensyn til mænd der identificerer sig som kvinder, kommer systemet nok til at gøre det for dem. Alternativt kommer der en dag, hvor kvinder kun har en teoretisk chance for at vinde guld i visse olympiske discipliner. Det udstiller kampen mod naturen, og måske ville det være bedst hvis de lige på det her punkt fik sin vilje. Tænk hvis Carolina Wozniackis plads til OL i Rio i 2016, havde gået til en middelmådig mandlig tennisspiller døbt Peter Larsen eller Lars Petersen.

Fra Foxnews – US Olympic athlete Chelsea Wolfe threatened to burn flag on podium.

“BMX Freestyle rider Chelsea Wolfe, who qualified as an alternate to represent the U.S. at this year’s summer Olympics in Tokyo, said last year that her goal was to win an Olympic medal ’so I can burn a US flag on the podium.’

My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium. This is what they focus on during a pandemic. Hurting trans children,’ Wolfe wrote on Facebook on March 25, 2020, along with a link to a PinkNews story about the Trump administration’s stance on transgender girls in female athletics. …

Journalist Ian Miles Cheong first reported on Wolfe’s post. Wolfe also reportedly joked about exploding former president Donald Trump’s head.

‘I would never say that someone should explode the head of the president. That would be illegal,’ Wolfe wrote in Facebook comments according to a screenshot posted by Cheong. ‘But I will say ‘with dynamite.’ Because that’s just a sentence fragment and doesn’t actually mean anything. It’s not necessarily related to the sentence that came before it.'”

(Chelsea Wolfe, Facebook, 25. marts 2020)

Tom Jensen vs Facebook: “… jeg udstyres med en straf for helt uproblematiske bidrag til debatten.”

Det er fint at Tom Jensen problematiserer Facebook-censuren, men det ville være rart, hvis udgangspunktet ikke var deling af en Robinson-kritisk Høi-artikel. Problemet er censuren, ikke den manglende præcision i håndhævelsen. Der findes ikke godartet censur, og da slet ikke, når man på få sekunder kan finde venstreradiale hadesider såsom ‘Piss Be Upon You Tommy Robinson’ og ‘Tommy Robinson Exposed’. Sidstnævnte med permalinket ‘/wherestommeh’ har hele 47.000 følgere, og koordinerer i praksis fysiske angreb på den censurerede.

Chefredaktør Tom Jensen kommenterer hos Berlingske – Facebook kan ikke længere løbe fra sin brug af magt i samfundsdebatten (kræver login).

“… Hvorfor denne indføring i mine personlige Facebook-trakasserier? Jo, fordi der hersker en principielt vigtig diskussion om, hvorvidt Facebook i højere grad burde reguleres som et traditionelt medie med ansvar for indholdet på platformen, sådan som man er begyndt med at gøre det i nogle lande. For eksempel i Tyskland. Eller om det i praksis risikerer at kortslutte store dele af den demokratiske debat, fordi techgiganterne af forsigtighedsgrunde så vil fjerne masser af indhold, der i realiteten er helt uproblematisk. …

Jeg har haft den klare holdning, at øget statslig regulering af indholdet på de sociale medier ville være en farlig vildvej, der i praksis kan komme til at begrænse mange borgeres adgang til at ytre sig frit på nettet.

Det mener jeg principielt stadig. Men techgiganterne udfordrer det princip ved faktisk allerede at frasortere så meget indhold og sanktionere så mange brugere – som for eksempel jeg selv – at man i praksis har indtaget den klassiske rolle som redaktør. Blot har man givetvis overdraget redaktørrollen til en uigennemskuelig algoritme, der lader Mai Manniches faktuelle vildledninger passere…,mens jeg udstyres med en straf for helt uproblematiske bidrag til debatten. Med andre ord har Facebook selv nedsat sig om en magtfaktor, der deler og hersker i samfundsdebatten, uden at man ved med hvilke motiver.

Reelt udgør man en slags kritisk infrastruktur i kommunikationssamfundet. Men vi kan ikke gennemskue, hvordan denne position bruges. Hvorfor må man eksempelvis ikke nævne navnet på en højrefløjsaktivist som Tommy Robinson? Hvorfor skal Donald Trump blokeres i endnu to år? Man kunne få en grusom mistanke, ikke sandt?

‘Fuck you, Greta!’

Jeg får næppe tid til at se på ramkortet før jeg rammer Århus, så her blot lidt støj til en åben tråd. Der er ingen national grisefest på Camp Trump i år, men værten har fået ny bil, og lod mig venligst prøvekøre hans GMC Sierra. En 5,7 liters V8 med et benzinforbrug af en anden verden. Jeg satte farten ned, da jeg opdagede at speedometeret målte i miles. ‘Fuck you, Greta!’

Facebook neddrosler corona-censur: Forskere udelukker ikke at Trumps ‘Chinese virus’ var ‘man-made’

Flere medier tørrede overfald på asiater af på Donald Trump, fordi han brugte udtrykket ‘Chinese virus’. Overfaldene blev hovedsageligt begået af sorte amerikanere, men det var alligevel den her farlige ‘white supremacist’, der stod bag. Det minder lidt om konspirationerne der flyder på nettet om samarbejde mellem nazister og jøder, og som ‘Arier’ kommenterede i gårsdagens post om en LGBT-opera: “Det er hvad der sker når det jødiske samfund får magten i et ikke-jødisk samfund.”.

De fleste konspirationer er blot konspirationer, men hvem skal vogte vogterne? En historie fra Wall Street Journal- Facebook Ends Ban on Posts Asserting Covid-19 Was Man-Made (27. maj 2021).

“Facebook Inc. has ended its ban on posts asserting Covid-19 was man-made or manufactured, a policy shift that reflects a deepening debate over the origins of the pandemic that was first identified in Wuhan, China, almost 18 months ago.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that three researchers from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology became sick enough in November 2019 that they sought hospital care, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report.

‘In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured from our apps,’ Facebook said in a statement on its website Wednesday.

President Biden on Wednesday ordered a U.S. intelligence inquiry into the origins of the virus. The White House has come under pressure to conduct its own investigation after China told the World Health Organization that it considered Beijing’s part of the investigation complete, calling for efforts to trace the virus’s origins to shift into other countries.

Earlier this month a group of 18 prominent scientists called for a deeper investigation into the circumstances in which the virus emerged, including the possibility that a laboratory accident released it.

US-woke: Nyt navn til ‘Bachman’s sparrow’, “.. Bachman’s theories supported efforts to justify slavery”

Sidste år fik Danmark besøg af en Kaffersejler, som Sverige i 2015 omdøbte til ‘Hvidgumpede sejler’. Negerfinken fik nyt navn ved samme lejlighed, men den har altid heddet Hvidbrystet skovastrild herhjemme.

Den autoritative feltbog inkluderer danske navne på en del arter der er opkaldt efter rejsende ornitologer, mest tyskere. De er alle hvide, i lighed med de ornitologer der har lagt navn til amerikanske arter, og skærer man bortforklaringerne fra, så er det vel det der er hovedproblemet. Navnene afspejler Aftenlandenes hvidhed.

Georg Wilhelm Steller, d. 1746 (Stellarsand mfl.); Peter Simon Pallas, d. 1811 (Pallas’ havørn mfl.); Heinrich von Kittlitz, d. 1874 (Kittlitz’ præstekrave); Eduard Rüppell, d. 1884 (Rüppels grib); Henry Baker Tristram, d. 1906 (Tristams sortstær); Theodor Johannes Krüper, d. 1921 (Krüpers spætmejse)

En historie fra NPR – Monuments And Teams Have Changed Names As America Reckons With Racism. Birds Are Next.

“‘There’s Wilson’s warbler, and Swainson’s warbler, and Kirtland’s warbler,’ lists Kenn Kaufman, author of several birding field guides.

‘You’ve got Nuttall’s woodpecker, and Cassin’s vireo, Cassin’s auklet, and then there’s Botteri’s sparrow, and Bachman’s sparrow,’ he says.

Kaufman, like many birders, hadn’t paid much attention to the people behind the bird names. That is, until last year when he learned more about that last guy on his list.

‘John Bachman was a Lutheran minister in South Carolina,’ Kaufman says.

‘He also fancied himself to be a scientist,’ says Kaufman, ‘and part of what he wrote about was suggesting that whites were just naturally superior to members of other races.’ He says Bachman’s theories supported efforts to justify slavery.

‘We call these bird names verbal statues,’ Rutter says, ‘because so many of them truly are honoring folks that were involved in colonial and Confederate times.’

… Webster points to last year when McCown’s longspur was renamed the thick-billed longspur, after it was noted that John McCown was a Confederate general. He says it reflects a new consideration for social justice concerns.

The name change movement is part of a growing awareness that bird-watching has a diversity problem.
