Yes Scenes,, RED Square.


walt @12:51PM "Yes Scenes,, RED Square."

referring to me @a previous page



I was thinking about it and while the glib answer is 'a Nazi get together', it seems to me that you are watching the birth of an American Taliban.

Anybody notice how silent our leftwingers are on all this crap coming down. The really get excited when the next poll comes out or Trump stick his foot in his mouth again. Those are their big victories, but about what counts on Main Street, they don't have a clue.”

Nailed it.

I am sure by now you have heard of the heavily armed non-uniform no ID badge para-military squad deployed in DC by AG Barr. According to the Knight First Amendment Institute:

“The No-Badge practices seem designed to instill fear and to intimidate people from exercising rights protected by the First Amendment....They also conceal information that the public has a right to know. There is no legitimate justification for these practices, and they should have no place in any free society.”

Isn't that how the SS started..as a secret police?

Don Bessee

The red guard eats another one of its own wokesters -

"The New York Times editorial page editor and owner defended it in public statements but then they totally surrendered to a woke child mob from their own newsroom that apparently gets triggered if they're presented with any opinion contrary to their own, as opposed to telling the woke children in their newsroom this is the workplace, not a social-justice seminar on campus," Cotton told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."




“ Officials said the looters caused losses of $20,000 in property damage and stolen goods as a result of that incident.”

$20,000......fucking amateurs! In California looting 20K worth of stuff just means that Pretty, Pretty Gavin kisses you on the forehead, gives you a cookie, and sends you back out to play.

Don Bessee

Bad news for the TDS set -

In the new survey, which was conducted by Ipsos in partnership with ABC News using Ipsos’ Knowledge Panel, 52% approve of the move, compared to 47% who disapprove.

The military, according to a Gallup survey, is the most trusted institution in American society, with 73% of Americans in 2019 saying they have either a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the armed forces.

The second-most trusted institution, according to the survey, is small business, with 68% saying they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in mom-and-pop shops.

UCLA removes lecturer for questioning proposal to give black students preferential grading


Bill Tozer

No wonder he is called the boy mayor. Vote him out for not calling for defunding the police. The mob eats their own.


George Rebane

fish 220pm - I think the action of UCLA's Anderson School administration has now given a new definition of batshit crazy. And the most devastating thing is that at least one out three Americans will think this is the proper response for not taking race into consideration for determining only minority students' grades. The Great Divide is a'comin'.

No, no......insult away! Just trying to save you the embarrassment. You don’t do it very well.....and the internet is changing the way we communicate.

Don Bessee

Better than a trail of bread crumbs, meta data! -

So we can see: The Digital Dragnet could not only punish the heinously guilty, it could also pay for itself with money seized from fun-loving Antifa youths—or from their parents, or from their trust funds.

Dr. Rebane @ 3:42 pm sez:

“-I think the action of UCLA's Anderson School administration has now given a new definition of batshit crazy. And the most devastating thing is that at least one out three Americans will think this is the proper response for not taking race into consideration for determining only minority students' grades.”

A slight correction is in order, Doc. Strike “only minority students”. Add “minority students except for Asians”. There, much better. Brown and black is good. Yellow is bad. Welcome to the fold, dear Asians.

Think of it was the reverse of the San Jose water conservation promotions during the drought in the late 70’s ; ‘Yellow is mellow, brown, flush it down’

Today it’s ‘Yellow is not mellow’ nor a recognized minority as evidenced by your post Returning To Race Based College Admissions. :)


I like this idea of Minneapolis dismantling it's police department. The council appears to be all in, or at least a supermajority is.

What an interesting experiment.

Mr/Ms Wanna, give us some insight on how this would work exactly. I expect that you are tracking Blue Mob stories more closely than I am.

Do you fire everyone and then put out help wanted ads? Do the jails let everyone go and start over? Maybe the jails cease to exist since they are a symbol of white oppression. Do parking meters disappear?

I'd really like to know. How do you all go forward on this great mission?

I say go for it. Community policing has been redefined through the centuries (and no, police in the US weren't invented to catch runaway slaves) and maybe something new and exciting came come from this. I'll bet it's super exciting.

Bill Tozer

Darn it. Just checked my 2:27 pm. Boy mayor. Try it again, wrong video.


Did you notice the boy mayor’s pierced nipples?

Going to be fun to watch.......from a distance.


"Going to be fun to watch.......from a distance."

Well, heck yes. I'm certainly willing for them to give it a try though.

I think what people fail to appreciate is that it takes two to tango. The reason you might get a heavy-handed police department is because you have a poorly behaved perp class. The bad guys might get rousted once every year or three (or never) by the cops, a cop has to deal with it every day. Not only will it alter (or make more realistic) your mental state, but you absolutely have to bring a gun to a knife fight just due to the statistics of the matter.

This is an interesting approach by the Blue Mob, I do appreciate it's genius. If you can't win elections, you burn down cities. The average person just needs to hunker down and steer clear of 'progressives'.

Bill Tozer

The Far Left tells us that property don’t matter, it’s just stuff. Don’t worry about arson or busting up businesses or buildings, they will get it back. Lives matter, not things. Well, try telling that to this father of five. Not blaming Antifa or peaceful protestors, btw.


The good news is only 16% of those polled want to defund the police. About half of those polled believe Antifa is a terrorist organization.

#Defund Police is a sure fire Democrat Campaign issue for 2020. Better than Kamala Harris’s #Bring Back Busing campaign slogan.

You don’t need no friggin police. Stuff don’t matter. The Mob will police themselves and you, ROFLMAO.

FYI: the Detroit father of 5 who lost his home and work van Go Fund Me page is now over $400,000. We are indeed a good people in a good nation. An exceptional nation. Stuff matters. It’s for his children.

Oh yeah, he lost his dog was killed in the fire. Quit sobbing man, it’s just stuff.

Fire, like Antifa and the Far Left, have no compassion, no feelings.

re: Anderson School administration. I feel your pain...I do empathize.

‘UCLA professor on leave after refusing to cancel final exam following George Floyd's death’


Don Bessee

The 'experts' narratives and prognostications did not survive the real world -

New York’s Mario Cuomo held effective news conferences that at first burnished his image, but he’s now ducking responsibility for sending virus patients back into nursing homes where the disease promptly spread. Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer is now seen as a scold who on the one hand has kept pot dispensaries open but, on the other, last week told residents who’ve gone three months without hair care to just “Google how to do a haircut.”

Among the governors whose reputation has clearly been enhanced is South Dakota’s Kristi Noem. The 48-year-old Republican, who still ranches her family’s land, didn’t issue a shelter-in-place lockdown order for her state. “The people themselves are primarily responsible for their safety,” she said in a public statement in April. She added that the state and national constitutions “prevent us from taking draconian measures much like the Chinese government has done.”

But that didn’t mean South Dakota didn’t take clear steps to control the virus. Noem issued an executive order in March urging the elderly and those with preexisting conditions to stay home and encouraging employees to practice social distancing and to telework if possible.

“We do follow Center for Disease Control guidance,” Noem told Greg Kelly of Newsmax TV.




Leave it to LIBS for the next grand experiment in stupidity.
A city with no police.


They've gone to the next level.



From Pinkers Blank Slate.....

“When law enforcement vanishes, all manner of violence breaks out: looting, settling old scores, ethnic cleansing, and petty warfare among gangs, warlords and mafias. This was obvious in the remnants of Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, and parts of Africa in the 1990s, but can also happen in countries with a long tradition of civility. As a young teenager in proudly peaceable Canada during the romantic 1960s, I was a true believer in Bakunin’s anarchism. I laughed off my parents’ argument that if the government ever laid down its arms all hell would break loose. Our competing predictions were put to the test at 8:00 A.M. on October 17, 1969, when the Montreal police went on strike. By 11:20 A.M. the first bank was robbed. By noon most downtown stores had closed because of looting. Within a few more hours, taxi drivers burned down the garage of a limousine service that had competed with them for airport customers, a rooftop sniper killed a provincial police officer, rioters broke into several hotels and restaurants, and a doctor slew a burglar in his suburban home. By the end of the day, six banks had been robbed, a hundred shops had been looted, twelve fires had been set, forty carloads of storefront glass had been broken, and three million dollars in property damage had been inflicted, before city authorities had to call in the army and, of course, the Mounties to restore order. This decisive empirical test left my politics in tatters (and offered a foretaste of life as a scientist).”

A police officer’s greatest asset is community trust.

Bad Fish, bad. :)


Rumor has it the the NYT experienced its biggest one hour cancellation of subscriptions in its history. Feed them what they want to hear.
Don @ 7:04 pm. Bad Don, bad. Off topic. I’m telling GEORGE!


Bill Tozer

You go girl. Keep fighting no matter how many times you get threatened, doxxed, slimed, called a racist and Supremist and canceled. How many times have you been cancelled now? Too many to count.
Now they are blocking her Go Fund Me page for “Intolerance”, set up my Candace to help out a Alabama restaurant that got ransacked and destroyed. Just when I though I heard everything....

“No one is standing taller against the current tide of insanity than Candace Owens. You likely have already seen this Facebook Live video; tens of millions have. If not, it is worth watching. She begins by explaining why George Floyd, whose death was tragic and wrongful, was no hero. (The point is not academic. There is a movement afoot to rename Minneapolis’s Chicago Avenue as George Floyd Avenue.) She then goes on to cite some of the data that disprove the “systemic racism” in law enforcement canard. At the moment, Candace’s video has 1.4 million likes and 800,000 comments on Facebook:”


And get this: now intolerance is synonymous with conservatives, not the Far Left, ROFLMFUEO.

Don Bessee

BT - It is a parallel to the anarchy, whos cities are in the worst shape from the organized and opportunists systematic looting?

"A police officer’s greatest asset is community trust."

and our greatest asset is the italic.


DonB: "Now the next page in the plan of the new red guard. No free speech for you, you can not have any voice bitches"

I was thinking about that this morning. What with the public publishing of political contributions (purely for the public good, of course!), the Blue Mob can happily find Trump donors at an even lower level and make house calls. Your house still standing is only an OpenSecrets.org away. The more little kids and baby carriages with black power signs you see, the more the game is given away. It has all the appearances of a cult.

Of course, there's always some photogenic guys with torches in Charlottesville, and Heather Heyer, and some imaginary 'Boogaloo' guys, so it's all even up in comparison to the thousands of calls for boycotts, looted stores, beatdowns by masked people, burned buildings, murdered police by the Mob.

It make sense after all. If a group runs the giant internet firms, the federal bureaucracy, the schools, media, the arts, there's gonna be tension in the air if it can't exert it's will via the Presidency and courts. The ballot box simply wasn't fast enough.

‘10 Rules for Postmodern Rioting’

Is it deemed more or less evil to wear a mask while hitting a store owner over the head with a two-by-four?



Golly, I don't know where this reflection should go... perhaps here.

I've been reading ... a book! ... printed, on paper! ... something of a slog ... but interesting: "Explaining Postmodernism, Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault" by Stephen Hicks, a philosophy professor at a smallish midwestern university I hadn't heard of.

First published in 2004, it's #46 on Amazon's modern philosophy list.

I'd not actually taken a philosophy class (from a philosopher!) since the mid '70's which is, coincidentally when the term "Counter-Enlightenment" began to be used to describe what was happening to modernist Enlightenment thought.

The third chapter ends with "Postmodernism is thus the end result of the Counter-Enlightenment inaugurated by Kantian epistemology"

Maybe more later, I'm halfway through it.

Daily Quotes go here today.

Upright: “Activists would have us believe the government that brought us slavery, Jim Crow, anti-interracial marriage laws, affirmative action and police brutality is the government that will solve the problem. The government that started a war on poverty to bring us a great society actually managed to keep people in poverty and destroy families. But this time, just you wait, the government is going to fix it.” —Erick Erickson

For the record: “In 2018, more than 7,400 black Americans were murdered on the streets. That means for every unarmed black person shot to death by a police officer, more than 700 were murdered by someone else.” —Gary Bauer

Good question: “How many black lives are saved each year by the police? Don’t those thousands of black lives matter?” —Burgess Owens

Another good question: “Democrats want to grab our guns AND abolish the police. What’s left to defend against home invasions and looters then?” —James Woods

Observations: “The [Jeffrey] Epstein case is so relevant today because it’s the extreme example of our dual system. Those at the very top can literally get away with child rape. Those at the bottom find themselves at the whim of any bad cop they may encounter. This sense that there are two Americas, with two sets of rules, is driving so much of the rancor we are seeing in the streets. … Our country today is dominated by the extremes. You may believe the government went too far in shutting down our economy in response to the coronavirus, but you probably don’t think the guys open-carrying assault rifles around our state capitals are there to protect your interests. The antifa terrorists are not speaking for those outraged over George Floyd either. At some point, normal Americans are going to have to take back the conversation.” —Neil Patel

Friendly fire: “Democrats, from top to bottom, are running the cities with the worst police brutality in America right now. We voted for them.” —BLM activist Shaun King

Leftmedia Bubble Award: “Biggest antifa rally in history.” —Social media post by NPR’s Mara Liasson with a photo of the D-Day landing at Normandy

Alpha jackass: “Friend points out on D-Day anniversary that the men who stormed the beaches of Normandy were the true and original antifa.” —The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi

Non compos mentis: “For me, it has to be demonstrated that whoever I pick is two things: One, is capable of being president because I’m an old guy. No, I’m serious. Look, I thank God I’m in great health. I work out. No, I’m serious. You know, I work out every morning. I’m in good shape — knock on wood, as my mother would say. You never know.” —Joe Biden (We presume the second “thing” is “black female.”)

And last… “Riots may excite the keyboard revolutionary, but they won’t bring racial equality. The opposite, in fact. Not only are the anarchists who burn and loot stores subjecting many of their neighbors to a dehumanizing experience, they are destroying poor and minority neighborhoods.” —David Harsanyi


Gregory "I've been reading ... a book! ... printed, on paper!"

I've come to re-appreciate the format, even given the existence of the Kindle, Calibre, and Library Genesis. Thank God for the latter as I strongly suspect that a lot of the non-copyright infringing sort of digital books will go down the memoryhole due to either lack of interest or wrongthink.

What with the growth of Mob America, I wonder sometimes how everything can be set aside to last through a potential upcoming interregnum. Digital formats aren't a slam dunk for the long term, but neither is modern paper. Isaac Leibowitz would appreciate the modern era.



I was just thinking about a Joe Biden 'presidency'. It's certainly possible, always a toss-up at this point.

A smart bet for any firearms or ammunition company is to go on triple shifts and fill up the warehouses in case that Joey Fingers gets the nod, they'll have a bit of time to stuff the channel. You can expect the gun restrictions and outright confiscation to happen on Day 1 of the Democrats getting the Oval Office.

It'll be a combination of pent-up resentment and urge to give those Flyover People what-for plus the lesson learned from their inability to burn down Coeur d'Alene and places similar. Part of making the middle-class grovel will be to disarm them, it's as much psychological warfare as it is any kind of physical act.

Speaking of which, I gotta good list of Democratic voters doing their thing. h/t some guy on reddit. Too big to post here.

I turned off buying hardcover books years ago... I had purchased a beautifully finished hardcover edition of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by the late great Douglas Adams some years earlier, figuring I would be rereading them regularly and the paperback versions tended to self destruct.

Guess what... the paper they used was extra high acid and the thing started destructing very soon. The padded leather cover was lipstick on a pig. A ripoff.


Posted by: scenes | 08 June 2020 at 01:43 PM

Well lets hope that I'm right........


"Guess what... the paper they used was extra high acid and the thing started destructing very soon."

It's interesting to go to a used book store and hunt down the older stuff (100+ years old). The heft to them can be surprising.

I need to find a good research paper (so to speak) on the history of paper and binding used in mass-produced books. There's a clump of knowledge to be gained there.

If nothing else, the inventor of the 'trade paperback' needs to be horsewhipped.

The big talk from Biden about further gun control is just empty blather to fire up his base.
Oh, I'm sure they'll try something like full registration of firearms or a special fee or tax on every fire arm you own, but confiscation?

Welcome to America’s Cultural Revolution

“You may also have noticed another progressive slogan gaining popularity these days: “Silence is violence.” It’s no longer enough not to peddle wrongthink in the op-ed pages of the local paper, but now you must also actively champion woke progressive positions or you too are tacitly engaged in violence and racism.

This is a neat trick: To speak out in the wrong way is violence. Not to speak out is violence. Not to speak out in the way progressives dictate is violence. This is why your apolitical local lawn-care company is sending out emails promising to dedicate themselves to Black Lives Matter. No one wants to be accused of harboring counterrevolutionary sympathies.“

re BillT 941am - For how long have we said 'It can't happen here, cuz we 'Mericans'? And for how long has RR maintained this was bullshit?

Bill Tozer

Lol. Use the inside poop tent in the back of the room.

‘Protesters In Asheville, Portland, Nashville, And Chicago Try To Create Autonomous Zones. Police Aren’t Having It.’

“Chicago’s tiny “autonomous zone” is hanging on, but probably not for long. The “occupation” is of a single building on the University of Chicago’s campus — the headquarters of UChicago’s campus police department — and it is quickly running out of resources after law enforcement officials, who are still in charge of their own offices, refused to allow the interlopers to use their bathrooms or have outside food delivered.

To be clear, the graduate students are occupying the police department’s building — they are not outside — and did not come prepared for a long-term engagement. Forced to tangle with cops who weren’t willing to allow the protesters to use their facilities, they resorted to defecating in a designated location within the building.”


Come on grad students, hold it longer!
