Not exactly Passport to Pimlico, is it?

David

Not exactly Passport to Pimlico, is it?

Heh. It turns out that if you gather together thousands of resentful misfits and psychological inadequates – the kind of people to whom you wouldn’t entrust car keys or a debit card - and you then allow them to have power over other people… well, amazingly, things don’t go terribly well.

It’s a real head-scratcher.

Previously in Utopia.

F*cking parasites.

David

F*cking parasites.

Yes, absolutely. The dynamic is fundamentally parasitic, as it must be with such creatures. They call it an “autonomous zone,” but it’s a farcical paper-thin overlay, another pretence, and utterly dependent on the bourgeois world that they claim to despise and say they wish to destroy. And when they tire of the LARPing and the self-inflicted squalor, and shuffle away, or are belatedly scraped off the streets, someone else will be expected to clear up afterwards. And to pay for it all.

See also Occupy.

By the way, for those of you who care about such things, I now have a Parler account. I can be found at @DavidThompson. Not that there’s anything of great interest there as yet. It’s day one of a half-hearted experiment on my part.

There should be consequences.

How about sending all the unwanted (the last two words are superfluous) performance artists to live there and prevent them from leaving. let them suffer.

Having been happily Twatterless for almost a year I've joined Parler, too. May God have mercy on our souls (if I have one).

Lord Vetinari approves: No need to build dungeons and stock them with scorpions: the fools will do it themselves.

It appears your speech is indeed free, but unless I have an account I can't see what you have to say. When I click on the link you've provided I'm told I've been logged out (not that I've ever logged in) and taken to a page where they want me to either set up an account or sign in. As defective as Twitter may be you don't need an account to look at someone's account when they tweet publicly.

Just coming here to say that the woke are absolutely vicious. I just saw one put up an in-good-faith question on their wall about reparations for Celtic people. In return they’ve been absolutely swamped by their Rigidly Righteous comrades, accusing them of ‘taking up space’ that is ‘needed’ at this time for the ‘BLM movement’. Taking up space. On their own wall. On the internet. Where ‘space’ isn’t exactly at a premium.

File that away under ‘reasons I’ll never be a lefty #1001’.

As you were....

Taking up space. On their own wall. On the internet. Where ‘space’ isn’t exactly at a premium.

No, the problem is that they're taking up space, living rent free, in the lefties' heads. That's what the lefties are objecting to.

I was not totally surprised to read that the media-designated warlord, a man caught on video distributing guns to his fellow citizens, is also an Airbnb Super Host.

Long live the revolution!

David

I wouldn’t lose sleep over it. I’m expecting to use it only to post links to items here. One of the reasons I didn’t have a Twitter account is that I don’t want to end up having the same exchanges on two different platforms. That way madness lies.

Hal

. . . about reparations for Celtic people.

. . . . ???

Not enough Celts, too many Celts, established mispronunciation by a basketball team?????

David

It’s an expression of their feelings.

David

A somewhat symbolic moment.

Apparently, the indignant prodnose has somehow failed to register the huge phuqing knife.

David

Meanwhile, in woke Utopia.

Another week they'll be eating each other.

David

Another week they’ll be eating each other.

It has to be said that, much to everyone’s astonishment, and even by their own dismal standards, it’s not going terribly well.

Jonathan

To be honest, I'd just wall them in and broadcast the ensuing hilarity live via drone as a 'Trump 2020' election ad.

pst314

I'm waiting for the announcement that this "wasn't real socialism".

TimT

Not enough Celts, too many Celts, established mispronunciation by a basketball team?????

They were thinking about it in terms of modern race relations, like reparations for indigenous people from colonising powers. It was a historically naive view but the question was asked in good faith - and perhaps because they were demonstrating independence of mind and were vulnerable anyway, they got absolutely turned on by their lefty friends. It was vicious.

Hal

They were thinking about it in terms of modern race relations . . . .

Oh, I can see some general gist of that, but . . . . Celts?!?!?!?!?!

Based on what is what I'm not getting . . . .

My ancestors more or less owned and ran the west coast oi Scotland and the outer isles, even if that was a few years and several waves of migration ago . . . . I'm just not seeing a lot of leverage . . .
