What do Decadent Liberals Say about Paedophilia “Cuties’? By Mrs Vera West

     Four 11-year-old girls doing revealing dirty dancing? Isn’t this exploitation? No, the critics and Left are saying that it is liberating etc. Be aware that the show features a Black Muslim migrant girl who is the centre of attention, or is it child abuse? All done by French-Senegalese writer Maimouna Doucoure, who should know better. The dancing merges into paedophilia, as many commentators have said, and that is by non-white feminists too.  The bits I have seen are utterly disgusting, and I had to be ill many times, more than usual doing this writing.

  https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2020/09/11/88-of-elite-film-critics-love-cuties-compared-to-3-of-audience/

“As of right now, a full 88 percent of critics approve of Cuties, Netflix’s piece of soft-core child pornography, while only three percent of the audience agree. That’s not a typo. Three percent. Over the years, I’ve seen some wide gulfs between audience and critic at Rotten Tomatoes, but that probably takes the cake and the pie and the whole enchilada. Keep in mind, Rotten Tomatoes has worked hard to game these scores to protect its Hollywood masters, and still it’s 88 to three. So, despite what the fake media are telling you about criticism of Cuties coming only from the close-minded and unenlightened political right, Cuties is not proving to be at all divisive, at least not among real people. A full 1,047 audience members voted on Cuties, which means 1,047 of everyday people took the time to log an opinion, and only three percent gave it a thumbs up. That works out to a terrible approval score of less than one percent — 0.69 percent, to be precise. So where are all the enlightened and sophisticated Biden voters voting Cuties up? There are none. Well, almost none. Can I say statistically none? Think I can. Think I will. Of course, among the elite critical class there is not much division either. Among the 33 critics who have so far reviewed it, 29 gave Cuties a positive review, while only four logged a negative one. Yours truly sat through Cuties on Thursday and posted a review. Not on Rotten Tomatoes. To have your reviews posted on Rotten Tomatoes you have to join Rotten Tomatoes and I don’t join anything. I’m not a joiner. Naturally, my negative review is already under attack by the foo foo defending 11-year-old girls in short-shorts opening their legs wide-open for the camera. But no one can say I didn’t give it a fair shot, that I didn’t give it the benefit of the doubt. I am the guy, after all, who’s first movie review for Breitbart News (then Big Hollywood) was a rave over Stephen Soderbergh’s two-part love letter to Che Guevera. You can look it up, if you want. I’m not going to link it. Rereading what I wrote two weeks ago is bad enough, so you can imagine how excruciating a 12-year trip down memory lane might be. Anyway, it’s good to see that normal people are not divided on the issue of softcore child pornography. More than 97 percent of us are against it. Of course, to be fair, elite film critics are also not divided on the issue of softcore child pornography. Almost 90 percent of them are for it.”

Melbourne: USSR 2.0 By James Reed

     What is going on in Melbourne? Bizarre arrests, protesters getting arrested by the truckload, the state of emergency going on and on, and the economy wrecked, with the worst to come.

Attack of the Giant Killer Mosquitos from Hell! By Brain Simpson

     Hey, if the mainstream false news media can tip out false news by the bucket load, then why not headlines like the above? Well, the thing is, apart from the hell metaphor, it is still pretty close to the truth.
  https://themindunleashed.com/2020/09/in-brutal-aftermath-of-hurricane-laura-thick-mosquito-swarms.html

“In the aftermath of Hurricane Laura, massive swarms of mosquitos have laid waste to Louisiana, killing huge numbers of cows, as well as deer, horses and other livestock in the region. Two weeks after Hurricane Laura brought torrential rains to the southwest part of the state, thousands of mosquitos have set upon animals as large as bulls, draining their blood and leaving them anemic and bleeding. Livestock annoyed by the mosquitos have also been forced to pace around during the hot and moist summer in an attempt to avoid the insect. The hordes of mosquitos pushed out of their marshy habitats by Hurricane Laura have been nothing less than a menace for local livestock, according to a Louisiana State University AgCenter press release. “The population just exploded in the southwest part of the state,” said LSU AgCenter agent Jeremy Hebert. The problem has led to the widespread loss of cattle and even some horses across the five parishes neighboring the most severely impacted part of the state where the storm made landfall in late August. Experts estimate that anywhere between 300 and 400 cattle have been lost by local ranchers.”

DHS Daft Draft Document By Chris Knight

     Here is good old Tucker saying that the Left-wing anarchists are now threatening normies who are quietly eating. Yet, the Deep State  say that it is not these terrorists who are the threat, but White supremacists, no doubt defined as any White person, I surmise:
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgaFgljFd4A 
  https://edition.cnn.com/2020/09/08/politics/white-supremacy-dhs-draft-assessment/index.html

“White supremacists will remain the most "persistent and lethal threat" in the United States through 2021, according to Department of Homeland Security draft documents. The most recent draft report predicts an "elevated threat environment at least through" early next year, concluding that some US-based violent extremists have capitalized on increased social and political tensions in 2020. Although foreign terrorist organizations will continue to call for attacks on the US, the report says, they "probably will remain constrained in their ability to direct such plots over the next year." The threat assessment -- which also warns of continued disinformation efforts by Russia -- is especially notable as President Donald Trump has often employed race-baiting tactics in his quest for reelection and frequently downplayed the threat from white supremacists during his term in office. The Trump administration has portrayed Antifa and anarchists as a top threat to the US, with the President tweeting this summer that the US will designate Antifa as a terrorist organization. The recently released draft reports, which were made public by Lawfare Editor in Chief Benjamin Wittes and first reported by Politico, assess a host of threats, including cyber, foreign influence and irregular migration. All three drafts state that white supremacist extremists are the deadliest threat. However, the placement and language about white supremacy in three versions of the DHS draft documents differ slightly. The earliest available version of the "State of the Homeland Threat Assessment 2020" drafts reads: "We judge that ideologically-motivated lone offenders and small groups will pose the greatest terrorist threat to the Homeland through 2021, with white supremacist extremists presenting the most lethal threat."

A Knee on the Neck; A Jackboot in the Face By Richard Miller

     Many takes on this one. First corona-fascism, as a young lad with his face mask not on properly, gets his face pounded into the ground by the ever-friendly police, who across the world have shown what they really stand for. Take 2, well, unlike George Floyd, there is no breathing problems and no death, so really the police are just helping out with neck massages in the aid of chiropractic health. Neck stretching.
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8717707/Spanish-police-officer-kneels-neck-14-year-old-boy-wasnt-wearing-face-mask.html

“A Spanish police officer pressed his knee down on a 14-year-old's neck to restrain him after he caught the youngster without his face mask on properly. One onlooker could be overheard shouting at the officer, 'don't squeeze him so hard' as he used the controversial George Floyd-style restraint while the youngster screamed in agony on the pavement. Another female in the crowd gathered round the policeman branded him an 'abuser' and 'b*****d' as he used his hands to press down on the boy's face to keep him pinned to the floor. A second policeman was then filmed asking for the ID of an older woman thought to be the boy's mum who started criticising the police as they took the teenager away. He turned around and demanded her name and address and ID documents after police reinforcements arrived and she repeatedly demanded to know why such force had been used against the youngster after he was spotted with his face covering down around his neck. The incident happened on Tuesday in the northern city of Miranda de Ebro just below Spain's Basque region. It occurred just days after six police officers in Madrid were filmed forcing a woman into a police car and hitting her head off the vehicle during an arrest for not wearing a mask.

Facebook: Agent of the Left By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     So, Zucky plucky will not be publishing the US election results, on the night out of fear of civil unrest. What? Did it occur to him that this act alone may fuel civil unrest, as Trump voters will rightly see the election as being stolen? Could it be that this is all part of the conspiracy to steal the election from Trump post-election night? Sure, it is, in my opinion.
  https://nypost.com/2020/09/04/mark-zuckerberg-fears-civil-unrest-after-2020-election/

“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg rang election alarm bells on Friday by saying the social media platform is bracing for “civil unrest” following the 2020 presidential election. The tech titan said Facebook is trying to clamp down on misinformation ahead of the November vote because of the risk of an uproar in the days or weeks it will take to count all the ballots. “There is, unfortunately, I think, a heightened risk of civil unrest in the period between voting and a result being called or after that, and I just think that we need to be doing everything that we can to reduce the chances of violence or civil unrest in the wake of this election,” Zuckerberg told Axios in an interview released Thursday. Zuckerberg suggested that there’s a risk of violence breaking out after Election Day and that Facebook will try to stop violent events from being organized on its platforms, which include the eponymous social network as well as Instagram and WhatsApp. “The country is very charged right now, so I think regardless of what we do there’s some chance that this happens across the country,” he said. “I just want to make sure that we do our part to not contribute to it.” Facebook announced several policies Thursday aimed at protecting the integrity of the race between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden in light of the fact that many people will vote by mail because of the coronavirus pandemic. They include efforts to label posts from candidates claiming victory before all the votes are counted and a ban on new political advertisements in the week before the election. The billionaire tycoon also said Facebook and other media outlets should inform voters that “there’s nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or even weeks to make sure that all of the votes are counted.” Facebook shares fell 1.6 percent to $286.39 in early trading Friday after dropping 3.7 percent Thursday.”

The Age of Disorder By James Reed

     There is plenty of material out there, indicating that we are falling into an age of disorder. Looked at from a wider philosophical perspective, we can see this all as part of the inevitable rise and fall of civilisations, for, after all, civilisations do rise and fall, and all have, as much as this might be an inconvenient truth to those with comfortable lives and living in materialist and consumer bliss, those who are far away from how the majority of the human race lives now, and did in the past. The assumption has been that technology and human ingenuity will always save us just in the nick of time. But, why should that be? Where in the Bible is that written, that economics, science and materialism will save us?
  https://www.theorganicprepper.com/system-crumbling/

“It’s indisputable that our system is now failing in numerous ways. Some of these things directly relate to the virus and the subsequent lockdown, while others are tied to the nonstop riots that have been going on in some areas for more than 100 days. The riots began after the death of George Floyd when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck until he suffocated. From the economy to the justice system to the infrastructure, our system is grinding to a halt in a variety of manners that stand to completely change the American way of life. Let’s take a look.

Sweden: Gang Violence and Immigration By Richard Miller

     Sweden got one thing right: the Covid-19 response, the opposite end to Melbourne. But it still has an immigration problem which will sink it, if it hasn’t already.
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/09/09/swedish-pm-refuses-link-gang-violence-migration-police-chief-comments/

“Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has denied a link between migration and gang activity, after deputy national police chief Mats Löfving claimed gangs move to Sweden just to engage in crime. Over the weekend, Deputy Police Chief Löfving identified at least 40 criminal clan gangs across Sweden, which he said mostly operate in so-called “vulnerable” areas, often referred to as no-go zones. “These clans come to Sweden solely with the purpose of organising and systematising crime. They work to create power, they have a great capacity for violence, and they want to make money. And they do that with drugs, violent crimes, and extortion,” Löfving said, according to Nyheter Idag.”

At Last: Hate Crimes Against Whites, Well, at Least Conservatives By Charles Taylor

     Well, blow me over; could it be that White lives do matter a tiny bit?
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/09/09/women-accused-of-stealing-maga-hat-from-7-year-old-charged-with-hate-crime/

“Two Delaware women accused of stealing a seven-year old’s “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat outside the Democratic National Convention have been charged Tuesday with second-degree robbery and felony hate crimes. Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, each 21 years old, were indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday on felony robbery charges, hate crime and conspiracy charges, and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child, the New York Post reported. Delaware Online reported that three of the charges are felonies, and if convicted, the women could spend up to 15 years behind bars. Amy and Winslow are out on bail, according to a spokesperson for Delaware Attorney General Kathy Jennings. “[H]arming another person – let alone a child – because of the expression of their views betrays the principles on which our country was founded,” Jennings said in a statement to Delaware Online. Both women were arrested in connection with a viral video that allegedly showed the two women ripping up pro-Trump signs and stealing a MAGA hat from a seven-year-old in front of his mother. “That’s somebody else’s hat,” the seven-year-old boy could be heard saying after the women shred several pro-Trump signs in the parking lot of the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware, where parts of the Democratic National Convention were held. One of the suspects grabbed a MAGA hat that was lying on the ground. “Get your hat back, baby,” the mother is heard telling the boy as they follow the suspects, demanding the return of the hat. A man who also tried to get the hat back with the boy and the mother allegedly got punched in the face by one of the suspects.”

Going After Charles Darwin Now; Now Real Survival of the Fittest By Brian Simpson

     I was reading an article in The History Teacher, by Christopher Versen, “What’s Wrong with a Little social Darwinism (In Our Historiography),” which puts social Darwinism, the idea that evolutionary forces directly apply to human societies, in a more plausible historical light. Even so, in my opinion the ideas of Darwin and Spencer are much more reasonable than Marxism and all the Leftist bs that now fills the universities, such a critical race theory and postmodernist frog droppings. But, there will not be a fair debate about Darwin, and social Darwinism, since the present woke politically correct establishment is moving to eliminate his thought from the modern hellholes called universities.
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-09-08-blm-goes-after-charles-darwin-evolution-racist.html

“If you believe in the Theory of Evolution as put forth by the late Charles Darwin, then you are a “racist” who needs to be “decolonized.” This is the position of Great Britain’s Natural History Museum, which recently launched a review aiming to stamp out “offensive” and “problematic” collections specifically associated with Darwin and his evolutionary endeavors and expeditions. Audit rooms, statues and items such as exotic birds will all be pored over to identify any potential elements of racism that warrant their immediate removal from the facility. And this is all being done to show how “science, racism, and colonial power were inherently intertwined,” according to the museum’s curators. According to a document about the review, the Natural History Museum decided to take on this investigation “in light of Black Lives Matter and the recent anti-racist demonstrations around the world.” To please the BLM mob, in other words, the Natural History Museum of the United Kingdom is planning to go over each and every piece in its facility to see “whether any statues (or collections) could potentially cause offense. This will include taking a closer look at Darwin’s specimen collections gathered from the Galapagos Island, which the museum says represent just one of many British “colonialist scientific expeditions.” The word “colonial,” as used by the museum, may as well equate to racism, because that is what is meant every time it is used. And because the entire basis of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution was built upon colonialist endeavors, his entire life is an embodiment of racism. “The Black Lives Matter movement has demonstrated that we need to do more and act faster, so as a first step we have commenced an institution-wide review on naming and recognition,” says Michael Dixon, director of the Natural History Museum.

The Mind of Leftoid Professors By Chris Knight

     Conservatives and traditionalist need to fully understand the mind of the Left, just how nasty it is. Here is a standard mindset:
  https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15640

“University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis appeared to defend the murder of Aaron "Jay" Danielson, the member of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer, during recent social unrest in Portland, Oregon. In 2012, Loomis came under scrutiny after he called for NRA executive Wayne LaPierre's "head on a stick" following the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. Just weeks later, in January 2013, Loomis said, “I know the central mission of the Republican Party is to have a membership made up entirely of old rural white people." "He killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it" Now, Loomis is once again under fire after publishing a blog post titled "Why was Michael Reinoehl killed?" Reinoehl is the man suspected of fatally shooting Danielson. Reinoehl was killed as federal authorities tried to arrest him. “Michael Reinoehl is the guy who killed the fascist in Portland last week. He admitted it and said he was scared the cops would kill him. Well, now the cops have killed him," Loomis wrote in the September 4 blog post. “I am extremely anti-conspiracy theory. But it’s not a conspiracy theory at this point in time to wonder if the cops simply murdered him. The police is [sic] shot through with fascists from stem to stern. They were openly working with the fascists in Portland, as they were in Kenosha which led to dead protestors," Loomis continued. In the comment section of the blog post, one reader challenged Loomis by writing, "Erik, he shot and killed a guy," referring to Reinoehl. Loomis responded by saying, “He killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.” He further added that “tactically, that’s a different story. But you could say the same thing about John Brown.”

Macho Cooking for Real Men By John Steele

     Here are two good videos by YouTuber Donnie be All Day, a pro-Trump patriot, and returned soldier who served in Afghanistan. He generally does the best YouTube review of knives, something which I am sure most of us here are interested in, being sharp, red-blood folks. But in these videos, he strays a bit and expresses his love for Australia, having fought alongside Aussies. And, he is pretty sympathetic to the plight of men today, and having some experience in cooking comes up with some simple, yet fantastic meals that men can make, you know, the divorced set, to nourish their bodies, and keep their spirits up in these tough times.  A good chicken fried steak will go down well in the trenches. I might cook one up tonight on the camp fire, out here in the wilderness, with just my Cold Steel  1917 Frontier Bowie  knife for companionship, and meat-cutting prowess.

Old Bob Gets Rough By Chris Knight

     In general, we do not like Leftist icon Bob Dylan/Zimmerman here. That is not to say that there is nothing of value for conservatives in his oeuvre, nice French word, that.
  https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/09/bob-dylan-and-the-rough-men?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=the_2020_09_09_jihad_watch_daily_digest&utm_term=2020-09-09 
  https://pjmedia.com/culture/robert-spencer/2020/09/06/bob-dylan-and-the-rough-men-n897201

““People sleep peaceably in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” The statement has been attributed most frequently to Winston Churchill, who may never actually have said it; but in these days of calls to “Defund the Police” and antifa thugs running wild in cities where there are no rough men, it is more important that it is true than it is who said it. Recently, an affirmation of the wisdom of this saying came from what many might consider an unlikely corner: Bob Dylan. Dylan, 79, is the hero of the Sixties counterculture, which makes him revered among today’s mainstream Left. Obama gave him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and not too long after that he won the Nobel Prize for Literature, for which he never would have been considered at all if he weren’t an idol of Leftists worldwide. But on his new album, Rough and Rowdy Ways, Dylan sings a curious stanza that should have his Leftist followers, if they’re listening to the words, wondering if the grand old man is losing his grip. Conservatives, by contrast, should be cheering. The lines come in a song entitled Mother of Muses, which begins by sending out a series of pleas to the spirits of inspiration. The speaker calls on the “mother of muses” to “sing of the mountains and the deep dark sea,” and to “sing of the lakes and the nymphs in the forest,” that sort of thing. So far, that’s fairly conventional: the man wants to write a song, and he needs some help to do it. Poets going back to Homer and before that have asked the muses to visit them with something worthwhile to say, or sing, or write. But then Dylan shifts the tone slightly, asking this “mother of muses” to “sing of the Heroes who stood alone / Whose names are engraved on tablets of stone / Who struggled with pain so the world could go free.”

If Trump Can Get Re-elected He Deserves a Whole Crate of Nobel Peace Prizes By Chris Knight

     President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yes, the same award that was given to Obama merely because he was Black, or at least, a multiracial. But Trump has done well in Middle East peace, and given that these awards are handed out to a multitude of losers, most of the time, it is about time that someone worthwhile gets one.
  https://www.theblaze.com/news/president-trump-nobel-peace-prize?utm_source=theblaze-dailyPM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Newsletter__PM%202020-09-09&utm_term=TheBlaze%20Daily%20PM%20-%20last%20270%20days

“President Donald Trump has officially been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of Norway's Parliament, said Trump is deserving of the esteemed award because of his efforts to broker peaceful relationships between countries, specifically citing the historic peace treaty between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. What did Tybring-Gjedde say? In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Tybring-Gjedde said the Nobel Prize Committee should examine Trump's record, for they will find that it is much more impressive than former President Barack Obama's. Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," Tybring-Gjedde said. "I'm not a big Trump supporter. The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts — not on the way he behaves sometimes," the Norwegian lawmaker continued. "The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing."

Uncle Joe Biden and His Furry Friends By Chris Knight

     “Meet Joe Biden’s Supporters,” is a devastating new campaign ad for Trump which slams the Democrats connections, indeed, worship, of BLM and antifa. We see Biden doing their bidding, and kneeling before absolutely frightening characters, who threaten continued violence unless old Joe is elected. The last scene has one thug make such a threat, as Biden knees before them, like a piece of white prison bait, and the gang stands threatening.   If Trump does not win, it will be frightening times. In fact, democracy is already over, and I can see a clear argument for people not accepting any fraudulent election result, not that I am advocating revolution or anything the Left might be, because conservatives are conservative, until the bitter end.

What Do We Know About Industrial Manslaughter Law in Victoria? By Ian Wilson LL. B

     The Workplace Safety Legislation Amendment (Workplace Manslaughter and other Matters) Act 2019 (no. 50 of 2019) has come into effect, with some startling consequences, some would say, political intrigue. To get this right, let us set out the facts as stated by the leading article on this topic, by journalist Robert Gottliebsen, who has been covering things like this for over 50 years. He deserves a medal or three:
https://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/economics/victorian-cabinet-manslaughter-charges-three-steps-closer/news-story/36cd8c24762f3df6ed4eb223607744ff
“..., last week the state of Victoria took three significant and deliberate steps towards the prosecution of members of its cabinet for industrial manslaughter – a crime that carries a maximum penalty of $16.5m and/or 25 years in jail.  The industrial manslaughter Victorian legislation was designed by Premier Daniel Andrews and the current government with the aim of jailing and heavily fining the chairman, chief executive, chief financial officer and directors of any large corporation where there was a death on or associated with their workplace. It was vicious legislation casting a wide net but it did not pass the parliament until late November (2019-ed). Seven weeks later COVID-19 hit Victoria,
Not in their wildest dreams did the Victorian cabinet ever consider that their personal freedoms and finances might be the first to be put on the line as the new and powerful legislation was tested...

...Last week’s first step in moving towards industrial manslaughter charges was the dramatic announcement by the new WorkSafe chief executive Colin Radford that WorkSafe would be investigating the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions for possible breaches of workplace safety...
...Secondly while Radford and WorkSafe investigates, the public investigation is showing Victorians just how crazy the administration of the quarantine became. There is no suggestion that WorkSafe will be nobbled by the government in its investigations. But theoretically, if it were, then the public would be in a unique position to realise what had happened. The position of Radford and his board would be untenable....
Finally, Attorney-General Jill Hennessy confirmed that the ministers of the Crown are subject to penalties for breaches of workplace safety including charges of industrial manslaughter. Similar assurances were made in the parliament when the bill was being debated".

Ensauvagement By Richard Miller

     The French term “ensauvagement,” has been used by the Dissent Right to describe the new savagery that has characterised modern Western society in the West. The New York Times has the following article not behind a paywall, so they must want ordinary deplorables to read it.
  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/04/world/europe/france-ensauvagement-far-right-racism.html

“The word “ensauvagement” has been a favorite dog whistle of France’s far right in recent years, used to suggest that the nation is turning savage. With its colonial and racist overtones, it has been wielded in discussion of immigration and crime to sound alarms that France is being transformed into a dangerous, uncivilized place, stripped of its traditional values. “Behind it, there is an underlying imaginary world, with savages on one side and civilized humanity on the other,” said Cécile Alduy, a French expert on the political use of language who teaches at Stanford University. So it did not go unnoticed this week when sitting ministers of President Emmanuel Macron’s government started throwing around the word themselves, arguing forcefully that talk of France’s “ensauvagement” was legitimate. “Personally, I use the word ensauvagement and I repeat it,” said Gérald Darmanin, the powerful interior minister and head of the national police.”

The Secret Life of Plants By Brian Simpson

     When I was in high school, there was a book The Secret Life of Plants, which was popular. I never read it, but I think it argued that plants are not mere mechanisms, but have a mental life. Well, the author was onto something, although mainstream scientists, dismissed the work as pseudo-science. Well, even so, it was more interesting than the unreplicable bs that they produce, usually for big business’ profits.

“In a major breakthrough, Italian researcher Umberto Castiello from the University of Padua gathered together a selection of studies supporting the idea that plants can sense, feel, think and even communicate among themselves. Castiello said he hopes to fuel a discussion regarding the cognitive abilities of plants, such as those often observed in humans and animals. Discussions on plants as cognitive agents could help lead scientists to the “roots” of cognition, he added. His findings appeared online in the Journal of Comparative Psychology.

The Racism of Antifa By Chris Knight

     For reference purposes, while antifa claim to be antiracist, when it suits them, they are quite prepared to call a Black woman by the n-word, no concerns. The only consolation is that if she was White, they would probably have killed her, just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The clip begins with the African-American woman telling the white Antifa rioters to get out of the way as they claim they are engaged in a “non-violent protest.” “You setting fires in the street, no that’s violence,” responds the woman.
