Wingnuts circulate yet another hoax photo.

Like phony "Darren Wilson in a hospital bed" photo, it’s not at all convincing. One of the signs clearly reads, “Hands off state labor laws.”

These people are idiots who’ll believe anything.

Hahahhahaha oh I miss Wisconsin protest photos.

"I have often wondered if Mr. Conservative/Libertarian turns down raises his company offers to *him.* Because I’ve only ever heard this argument applied to low-wage workers. Apparently, when you increase executive salaries and bonuses, that money comes out of a magical portal somewhere, so prices are unaffected. And no one ever tries to tell middle-class knowledge workers that getting a raise would only leave them worse off in the long run. It’s only ever the working poor. I guess they get paid with a different, more sinister kind of money."

Anti-trans trolling spree forces Wikipedia to ban U.S. House staffers for third time
Aug. 21 2014
Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, has once again blocked all computers from the U.S. House of Representatives in order to stop malicious edits to popular pages on the site.
According to The Hill, Wikipedia instituted the ban on Wednesday night after users operating from the House IP address made a series of anti-trans edits to the page for Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
Anonymous users operating from the Republican-led House were persistently re-editing the page to slur trans actress Laverne Cox by mis-gendering her mentions on the show’s page. For instance, they changed Cox’s description from “real transgender woman” to “real man pretending to be a woman.”
One user in particular went on an anti-trans editing spree this week, changing entries on multiple pages related to transgenderism until Wikipedia administrators were forced to step in.
“An obvious transphobe is using this IP to edit the article on transphobia,” the Hill quoted one Wikipedia user as saying.
“I have no problem with Congressional staffers editing Wikipedia,” said another user to the anti-trans editor. “I have a problem only with YOU vandalizing Wikipedia.”
The person using the IP address responded — without revealing their identity — that the malicious edits were in fact “official business” endorsed by a member of the House. Their changes, they said, were intended to bring “fairness” to the discussion.

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.

The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificant instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.

There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.

Watch for yourself. There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.

We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.

PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

This is a picture of three people from the Ferguson city commission.

Remember the story of how Ferguson police beat a man and then charged him with bleeding on their uniforms?

See that woman in the picture?

She was one of the cops who beat him.

Seriously what the fuck.

If you weren’t following #Ferguson on Twitter last night, you missed out. The city commission had a meeting where they tried to tell the people they couldn’t talk, but were eventually shouted down. So the All-White-Except-One city council sat there, gave people three minutes to speak, and said nothing, responded to nothing, and did nothing.

A couple of highlights:

  1. A man arrested for peacefully protesting spoke up and said “I’ve done more jail time than Darren Wilson.”

  2. “If Darren Wilson doesn’t get justice, you might as well bring back the army, because it’s going to be chaos,” said another.

  3. ESPN E60 reportedly had a story about a football player from Ferguson who reported a harassment incident with Darren Wilson a week before Mike Brown. (Looked for more reports of this today and don’t see any. Sent a few messages to journalists who were covering Ferguson.)

  4. Several people talked about how the “justice” system (more like “jüstice” system) in Ferguson routinely harasses and exploits people.

  5. The whole thing seemed very organized, with people telling the council (paraphrased): “You’ve done nothing for us, and that’s why you’ve got a murder on your hands. Now we’re coming for you [meaning the various seats on the council]” with one woman in particular saying to the woman pictured above, “We’re coming for your seat first.”

  6. This:

“I have 3 minutes to tell you I am ashamed of every single one of you.”

grant ward is not a nazi

to the best of our knowledge he does not support any of the ideologies that the nazi regime was so fond of and

just because he is part of hydra, which is a branch of the nazi regime, does not mean that grant ward is a nazi just by being part of hydra

please…

What about Ward and Garrett’s ideaologies don’t line up with Nazism?  Just because Ward and his stans don’t like the connotations of the word does not invalidate it.

After all, the Red Skull was not concerned whether someone called him a Nazi or not, rather, he preferred HYDRA, the superior Super Nazi (the Red Skull thought Hitler did not go far enough).

What the show tells us, is that Ward acts just like a modern-day Nazi, whether he wants to wear the word or not.

  • Survival of the fittest (the Nazis were big into this), Ward is the practical embodiment of this “I’m a survivor” he hisses at Skye after she calls him a Nazi.
  • Submission through terror/fear/chaos
  • Human beings that are considered “lesser” are free to be experimented on (CENTIPEDE, Deathlok)
  • Just following orders (an excuse a lot of Nazis tried on after the fact)

So many parallels to the ideaology it’s not an accident.  The show is telling you, just like CATWS is, that history will repeat itself if we give into fear over freedom.

Even if we isolate these ideals and don’t use the word “Nazi” how does that make it better?  It’s still pure evil.

The problem is the MCU bends over backwards to show HYDRA came from Nazi ideaology.  Nazi ideaology created the Red Skull.

very good points, indeed. thank you.

maybe even Rumlow would be offended at being called a Nazi. maybe Ward’s “that has nothing to do with today” is actually a party line. because well it’s 2014 and Alexander Pierce is no fool - he won’t go calling himself a Nazi even if he is a total Nazi, because he knows people would probably not take his post-9/11 hypersurveillance mentality seriously if he goes around calling himself a Nazi.

HYDRA’s always seemed very Dark Enlightenment to me.

Not all neoreactionaries are Nazis or support Nazism, but they have the same dislike of Jews, immigrants, racial minorities, and women who aren’t mothers/sex slaves.

Except HYDRA literally came out of the Nazi movement thus making them very much a Neo-Nazi group even if some of the minutiae of their ideals got tweaked in the 70 years since the fall of the Third Reich.
