Jessica Krug’s Lucrative Lie

Carnival maskEvery once in a while we see different news stories collide in such a way that one sheds a revealing light on the other. Such an illuminating convergence has just occurred in the unrelated cases of both Jessica A Krug and Charles Negy. By now there’s a good chance that you’ve heard about Professor Krug confessing to a lifetime of lies about her ethnic background. Her story has baffled and disappointed supporters and observers alike, yet it’s the more obscure case of Professor Negy which gives us some insight into the higher profile story of a white woman posing as a black woman. It isn’t the first time that’s happened.

So what did Professor Negy do to attract the attention of the Guardian newspaper? Well, he did the one thing that’s guaranteed to instantly end a career. He sent the following tweet, questioning the new woke orthodoxy:

“Black privilege is real: Besides affirm. Action [sic], special scholarships and other set asides, being shielded from legitimate criticism is a privilege. But as a group, they’re missing out on much needed feedback.”

It will come as no surprise that Charles Negy is now under investigation by the University of Central Florida as the twittersphere explodes with indignation. This virtue-signalling dogpile serves two purposes; firstly it gives the wokerati a chance to burnish their public credentials. Secondly, and much more importantly; the chorus of organised, indignant screeching creates so much fog and noise that the original idea is quickly forgotten. That is not an accident or an unintended consequence; in fact it’s the whole point of trial by social media in the first place.

So, is Professor Negy right; is black privilege real?

Call of Duty Cold War

The Ghost of Yuri Bezmenov

Call of Duty Cold WarSo, Activision’s massively successful Call of Duty video game series has just announced its next title, Call of Duty: Black ops Cold War. We can already tell it’s going to be a huge hit because all the right people are freaking out on social media.

Okay, so the SJW crowd losing its collective mind over something is hardly news; in fact we’re all very weary of their endless screeching about whatever’s bothering them today. However, this game trailer is different, because it doesn’t stand accused of promoting racism, sexism or some other nebulous form of bigotry. In fact it’s far, far worse than that. What COD Cold War has done, probably on purpose, is to commit the ultimate social media sin of breaking the first commandment from which all other woke dogma flows.

Call of Duty Cold War has just told the truth, and violation of this primary woke commandment can never be forgiven.

As of this morning, thanks to a popular video game, many tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people have learned the name of Yuri Bezmenov for the very first time. In case you’re not familiar with him, Bezmenov was a real life, bone fide KGB defector who gave one of the most important public interviews in the entirety of television history. I’m not exaggerating even a little bit. In this truly ground-breaking broadcast, Bezmenov set out in great detail how the Soviets planned to weaken the Western powers through a sustained cultural attack known as Active Measures. Bezmenov destroys the myth of Cold War agents battling it out in the shadows like James Bond and instead explains where the real action always was.

Laura Loomer

Twitter’s Looming Censorship Problem

Laura LoomerThe way some Silicon Valley giants have behaved of late leads me to wonder whether they’re spectacularly short sighted, or whether they’re so convinced of their own invulnerability that they believe they can act with impunity and never be challenged. Their politically driven editorialising must surely stem from either hubris or foolishness.

Social media and its fellow travellers have a long and well documented history of highly partisan political interference which doesn’t need to be regurgitated here. However, something’s just happened which has left the tech titans in a very precarious position.

Last night, conservative campaigner Laura Loomer won the Republican nomination for Florida’s 21st Congressional District. In fact, she won just over of 40% of votes cast, which is a remarkable achievement considering that she’s been handed indefinite bans by Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as being blacklisted by PayPal and GoFundMe. Despite this serious communication and fundraising handicap, she’s managed to amass way over half a million followers on Parler and the backing of one of the United States’ biggest political parties.

Now that Laura Loomer is an official, bona fide political candidate, will Twitter, Facebook and the rest let her speak freely?

In fairness, I’m not the only one asking that question, but I’m actually surprised that more people aren’t making a fuss about this in the blogosphere. Oh wait a minute; Laura Loomer is Jewish and critical of Islam…so of course I’m not surprised.

The New Cold War – Part 2

Mao Zedong

With the UK government’s cancellation of Huawei’s 5G infrastructure projects and a recent commitment to asylum seekers from Hong Kong, it’s tempting to conclude that our relations with China are quickly deteriorating. However, just as I pointed out in a previous post, the relationship between China and the West has been remarkably stable for a number of years now.

The sad truth is that, just like a battered spouse, the West is finally beginning to realise just how lopsided and abusive our alleged partnership has been, and for how long.

To put it bluntly, the Chinese Communist Party has been helping the West to fund its own decline for many years, and that decline is carefully designed to ensure that our political, media and business leaders profit greatly from it. Because scrutiny of supply lines does not serve the interests of Western elites, our toxic culture of conspicuous consumerism built on bonded sweatshop labour goes largely unreported. Apple and Nike are two of the worst offenders when it comes to the exquisite hypocrisy of corporate virtue signalling powered by political prisoners who have suicide nets installed in their factories. Do you have suicide nets in your workplace?

I guess Chinese lives don’t matter.

Kanye West for President? Seriously?

clownOnce again Kanye West has put himself firmly in the spotlight with his unexpected and some would say bizarre announcement that he will run for president of the United States. To be clear, both his much discussed Twitter announcement and his #2020VISION hashtag leave enough ambiguity for a run in 2024 or perhaps even later. He’s still relatively young and he has plenty of time.

The only question that matters right now is whether he’s serious about challenging Donald Trump for the presidency come November. To be honest, it’s difficult to imagine him putting forward a viable presidential run this late in the day, but at the same time it would be foolish to dismiss West’s announcement as the empty daydreams of a vainglorious clown.

Kanye West has a plan, and it doesn’t involve becoming president of the United States in 2020. He’s a smart boy and he understands the media, just like the current occupant of the Oval Office.

In truth, Kanye is probably still figuring out whether he really has any interest in public office. In the meantime he’s got plenty of ground to break and money to make, so we won’t know where he really stands until sometime after 2030.

So why do it?
