Don’t Touch Their Biscuits

Following the recent scolding by her crab-bucket comrades, Laurie Penny wishes to reassert her leftist credentials

Oh terrible temptation.

All very pious. Though it seems to me those credentials were amply visible immediately after the rioting and thuggery at UC Berkeley, covered here, when Laurie was letting her followers know just how brave she is for mixing with conservatives and college Republicans, i.e., the people under attack, who are apparently “vicious and vengeful.”   

Well. Here’s an interview with Kiara Robles, one of the “far right” women surrounded and assaulted, repeatedly, by the righteously left-leaning Berkeley ‘protestors’. It seems that merely wearing a hat with the words “Make Bitcoin Great Again” is enough to make you a “Nazi,” a “fascist,” and therefore a target of physical abuse. And here’s an interview with another woman – sorry, “Nazi” – who was repeatedly assaulted at UC Berkeley, along with her husband, who was severely beaten with metal bars.

These ladies, then, are some of the people of whom Laurie Penny is, and I quote, “fucking terrified.” 


Meet Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher and one of the organisers of the Berkeley rioting. “The left has been far too timid for far too long,” says she. 

Update 2

Here’s Yvette Felarca and her goons getting ‘hands-on’ in Sacramento. And again, watch the police.

...dismantling oppressive sexual norms, something something "the future of sex is orgy domes", etc.

Logan's Run, in other words. I have to wonder if these people even know the meaning of "dystopia".

... in the States now they can't even have a health system because they are so scared of the state.

Where, and when, did this idea come about that a "health system" cannot exist except as an apparatus of the state?


"This may help answer that question"....

"They told you ‘you are not a person,’ and it is ok to deal with that how you want. I’m not going to tell you how to deal with it because I am not you; I am not a person of color, I am not a woman, but I am going to tell you that it is ok to deal with it any way you want,” he explained, later dividing his class into two groups of people—whites and everyone else"



This may help answer that question

"Shortly after the election, Orange Coast Community College professor Olga Perez Stable Cox launched into a tirade during her class on human sexuality, calling Donald Trump a "white supremacist" and Mike Pence "one of the most anti-gay humans in this country." While it's unlikely she was the only professor to make such statements, she did have the misfortune of being recorded by a student who was less than appreciative of her behavior. OCCC claims they've launched an investigation. However, their target seems to be students, and not the professor."
