I think the point is to make the demonization/dehumanization strategy possible. You can’t convince someone that Trump supporters - or Brexit voters, or Milo fans - are Nazi bigots if that person actually knows a few of them.

Yes, probably. I think it’s also the case that communist groups and their variants tend to attract certain, fairly obnoxious personality types. It’s been my experience that the more ostentatiously someone professes their egalitarian righteousness and compassion for humanity, the more likely it is they’ll be a selfish and resentful moocher. (See also, Karl Marx.)

Surreptitious Evil

"the Left is a lot more organized & prepared for violence than the Right is, and has the advantage of a mainstream more supportive of it."
But in the USA at least, certainly now BO is the retired President, the Righ are the ones with most of the guns and all of the practical experience in how to use them in organised groups.

Trigglyprof and -puff, no matter how well armed, against some of my NG mates with Walmart 9mm?

Sort-of-Mad Max

After inspecting Ms. Goyette's ouevre, I have to give it a 'meh'.

It looks like the 'R-rated' version of most of Frank Zappa's '60's album art.

As in, it's all been done before.

What next, a 'Sargent Pepper's' cover parody in seafood? With flannel dildoes, to make it 'edgy'?

You're not going to epater any bourgeoisie like that, tunatits. Back to the drawing board!

Here’s an interview with Kiara Robles, one of the women surrounded and assaulted, repeatedly, by the 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 Ms Robles is one of the people of whom Laurie Penny is supposedly “fucking terrified.”

Deborah

While I've been watching these fools rage I cannot help but recall these words, they would do well to heed them.

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

The agitation is escalating and they're gearing up for a big showing outside the super bowl tomorrow. Although, some of them know exactly what they're doing and trying to ignite, far too many of them don't. I fear that too many of these fools, these useful idiots, have no idea what a dangerous game they're playing. The event that lights the fuse, that sets the world on fire, is boiling near the surface.

Having these thoughts is unsettling, some days I feel that I am letting paranoia get the better of me, other days I buy more ammo.

By the way, Trigglyprof has been identified.

Rebecca Watson?!?

svh

And Ms Robles is one of the people of whom Laurie Penny is supposedly “fucking terrified.”

Obviously a great big Nazi.

Squires

other days I buy more ammo.

Funny, that. Before I had even reached that line in your comment I was already thinking maybe I should buy more .308. One of those if/when cases where thinking in "when" rather than just "if" can make all the difference.

I don't attend political events, I keep to myself, and I do not presently live near any major metropolitan area. But despite that I've still heard enough fantasizing of violence committed against dirty unbelievers and gloating over violence actually committed (that made it into the press) against dirty unbelievers coming from lefties in person that I would be goddamn fool to think any of them would lift a finger to put a stop to it.

It isn't what they want to happen that matters, it is what they need to believe.

Nikw211

So ... I see the Independent is leading the charge against fake news and the post-truth society.

Or then again, maybe not.

David

Obviously a great big Nazi.

And yet Laurie’s crab-bucket comrades are the ones keen to dehumanise their political opponents.

David

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.

Sorry, that was the other page it seems....

Uh, got any Laphroaig?

Shirl Ock-Holmes

Has Laurie had a makeover? Her new Twitter avatar looks quite ... normal.

Hopp Singg

That doesn’t surprise me at all. I’d guess it’s a standard pattern. And the ‘purity’ aspect has faintly cultish connotations.

So is the "isolate the cult members" strategy, which is why they work so hard to keep all dissenting opinions off campus ... now very much an all-inclusive resort ... and to have cult members monitor other cult members who stray in the least. Probably also helps explain why so many lefties hate sports, too; it's very easy to end up respecting your opponent.

Heather Mac Donald on the evasions and dishonesty of UC Berkeley’s ‘progressive’ academics:

Déborah Blocker, associate professor of French, reports on the anarchy on campus: “Mostly this was typical Black Bloc action, in a few waves — very well-organised and very efficient. They attacked property but they attacked it very sparingly, destroying just enough University property to obtain the cancelation order for the [Yiannopoulos] event and making sure no one in the crowd got hurt.” That’s all right, then. Destroy property but do it to attain another illegitimate end — the silencing of speech you disagree with — and everything is fine… Perhaps the next target destroyed “very sparingly” will be a Berkeley professor’s million-dollar hillside bungalow or cherished Prius. We’ll see how quickly the owner calls the cops.

The word degenerate comes to mind.

Are these fuckers high?

David

Given the marked departure from reality and basic moral norms, and the casual waving aside of mob thuggery and the path it takes us down, you do have to wonder just how mentally corrosive leftism is.

Again, degenerate.

Wrong. I believe that character is called Carol Beer.

Antifa should change its name to Fa.

Antifa should change its name to Fa.

That would fit, but of those doing such posturing, the problem is thus indeed, that would fit.

---The other thought that popped into mind; . . . any of these chuckleheads . . .


Antifa

It seems that our Trigglyprof may not actually be a prof after all. Developing.....

I would ask everybody to please don your shocked faces now.

Early and personal life

. . .

He is a practising Catholic; he has also said that his mother or maternal grandmother is Jewish,[16][17] which has put him at odds with neo-Nazi elements of the alt-right.[18]

Oh, that's all right, aside from Milo at least apparently being---or stating to be---Jewish, the WWII era Nazis also went after the Catholics as well...

It's always a bad idea to mix mental illness with a nasty personality.

David

Quite. It’s not an oversight. It’s a contrivance.

If an academic at an elite university, a professional educator, is telling you that mob intimidation and the destruction of other people’s belongings is totally acceptable, provided you stop once you’ve achieved your political goal, however illegal and sinister that goal may be, and regardless of the precedent being set, and while studiously ignoring the actual, practical fallout of the behaviour she’s excusing, then that person is a moral idiot. To proudly assert a non-reciprocal license for thuggery in order to look cool and down with the kids requires deliberate contortion. A practised looking away from things - whether that’s the sight of women being hit with iron bars, or how the Professor of French might feel, and react, if similar liberties were taken with her person and property.

David

“No matter how charming the right are, don’t become one of them.” Says Laurie.

Maybe Trigglyprof identifies as a professor...

Fruitbat44

It would be a lot easier if people stuck to the traditional definition of Nazi i.e. murderous dictators stomping about in jackboots and shouting "Sieg Heil!" As opposed to the definition these SocJus types use of 'Anyone who isn't exactly like them.' -sigh-

Darleen

Orwell weeps.

Darleen

Aha!! Trigglyprof

However, online investigators say she is in fact an artist named Rebecca Goyette, an adjunct professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey.

Professor Boyette’s online biography:

Rebecca Goyette creates persona-based works that poke holes in Puritanical sexual mores. . . .

Situated within a largely queer, fantasy paradigm, her work is able to embrace a fruitful multiplicity of sexual desire and engage a panoply of non normative gender roles. . . .

For Goyette, sex is one gateway into the rich territory of psychology and human interaction, into the remotest ranges of the subconscious mind.

This is my shocked face.

David

This is my shocked face.

She seems overly enthused by images of men being mutilated.

The ladies of Cluster B, they walk among us.

“The Kübler-Ross model lists the stages of grief as Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. To check where in this process the left finds itself, I perused the covers of several news magazines. Here are some results.

"Social engineering" has been redefined, all the better to not be able to see it when it's actually happening.

I think it's intended to be lobsters, but honestly I suppose it was only a matter of time before writing crap like this became something you could get a job being a professor of.

Don't click the link.

Seriously, just don't.

Gee DR, if you didn't like that I see two alternate tomes available at that link are Space Raptor Butt Invasion and Space Raptor Butt Redemption . It's impossible to please some people.

Re: the rioters, erm... they're not very... well, they're not very manly, are they? I feel like I'm stepping outside the bounds of polite discourse to say it, but watching Zombie's videos the thing that struck me most was that they seemed like what my dad used to call "big girly la-las".

Teenage vegans, skinny hipsters, boys that never played football, girls... These are the people holding civilisation to ransom?

These are the people holding civilisation to ransom?

Well, the spineless university administration, at any rate.

...what my dad used to call "big girly la-las"

One does get the distinct feeling that the Y chromosome isn't what it was. And someone is clearly watering down testosterone.

Beloved Nephew is the butchest young man of his age (30) I know, unapologetically heterosexual, resolutely non-PC, admirable in every way, yet he spends more in a year on having his eyebrows threaded than I paid for my first house. It's terrifying.

"Rebecca Goyette creates persona-based works that poke holes in Puritanical sexual mores. . . ."

One of her 'personas' seems to be lobster based. Interesting the costumes involved are red, meaning the lobster is i] dead, and ii] cooked.

Is this evidence of stupidity, or of new depths of meaning in the area of lobster porn?
