Done for the Day
— Ace

I'm not net-nannying anymore.

Congrats. You drove me off my own site.

For the night. That won't last, I promise you.


I don't have time to pick up your garbage, so you're being asked to leave.

Apologies to Insomniac. It was a misunderstanding on my part and I'm sorry I flew off the handle.

( I would have deleted this reference a long time ago, when I apologized to Insomniac in the comments, but I'd completely forgotten he was mentioned up here in the post itself.)

30 Note to Self - do not discuss radiation and robots,

Posted by: Weasel at February 27, 2017 01:41 PM (Sfs6o)

31 Ace posted about a woman who wrote an article about how we sexually harass virtual assistants like Siri blah blah blah. Some commenters took that as license to point out that she may or may not have been of a certain ethnicity, and how they might like to "get all up in that". Ace asked them to stop, and they did not. So out came the Threadhammer.

Posted by: Me at February 27, 2017 01:41 PM (RYASC)

32 I bet 'Jen' posted some more gross feminine hygiene shit.

It's like mommy and daddy had a fight.  I'm gonna go ride my bike until it gets dark.

Posted by: Dang at February 27, 2017 01:42 PM (8b+oT)

36 If this was Minx 0.7 Beta, Ace could have just eliminated the comments and left the post, which was amusing.

39 Get some rest, Ace.  At least you don't have to deal with the traffic and other crazinesses of The Annual Insanity, aka Mardi Gras.  That's enough to drive anybody around the bend . . . and I should know [cackles maniacally].

44 Ha? What am I missing? I am usually the last to know. Posted by: Nevergiveup at February 27, 2017 06:39 PM (KlI/a) I think people were using the thread about a disturbed and probably insufferable woman's article about how Siri's obedience and tolerance were demeaning to women to post comments that were demeaning to women. Also I had a post about robots and radiation that vanished into the ether with the thread

Posted by: kallisto at February 27, 2017 01:44 PM (nNdYv)

58 From what I saw of the Siri thread, things went right off the rails quickly. I think Ace put his/her finger on it; there's some folks here who love to start generating shade over certain topics, as opposed to actually -talk- about things (or even just grumble). I'd offer to help moderate, but I've got a full time job and these threads fill up faster than Hillary at a Valu-Rite sale.

68 Oh! I found my comment about robots dying in Fukushima from radiation in my browser history. Boy are you guys lucky! This, among other things. There are videos online from robots in Chernobyl #4 where you can see what looks like static on the feed; that's actually particles hitting the receptors on the CCD. Eventually, that gives out. And it's not doing the ICs any favors either, inserting random 1s and 0s into binary circuits. Shielding isn't feasible because it would be too heavy.

70 The comments were not of a pervasive or insanely derogatory nature, at least about the author of the "study" article. A couple of ribald to off-color remarks, stuff you wouldn't say to your mom, but one supposes ace saw where he thought it was going, and killed it like Raid.

132 some of the shit was due to a twitter infestation (it was stupid of me to link the site on that cesspool), but some of the crap was from regulars. Insomniac said "Frank Zappa would write a song about these two," which another anti-semitic n00b echoed. This is certainly a reference to his song "Jewish American Princess," so I guess I need an explanation as to why Insomniac thinks this blog is a game of Spot The Jews. JEM earlier played the same game calling a fight between Bill Kristol and Andrew Breitbart -- which didn't even happen; he made it up for this quip -- "hebe-on-hebe action." Again, when did you think the blog became Spot the Jew? JEM followed that performance up (for which he had been warned) with saying he wanted to invent a bot called Leah (the name of the female writer in question) so he could say "Leah, spread your legs." It doesn't occur to him that maybe when you're actually naming a real woman and making sexually derogatory remarks, maybe that's a problem. Like: Maybe there are female readers and commenters who don't find this fantasy of JEM's as high-larious as he does? Anyway, both are banned. You get a caution, then you get a ban. I don't have the extra hours in the day to clean up after anti-semites and all-around assholes.

There are videos online from robots in Chernobyl #4 where you can see what looks like static on the feed; that's actually particles hitting the receptors on the CCD. Eventually, that gives out. And it's not doing the ICs any favors either, inserting random 1s and 0s into binary circuits. Shielding isn't feasible because it would be too heavy.

I believe that Insomniac was reacting to the Jew-baiting poster who socked Frank Zappa.

160 >>>The worst part of this was that Ace seemed like he was enjoying the blog this morning (early afternoon). i was. Getting a little tired of the unemployed drunks who fancy themselves shock-jocks though. (And some of these people must be unemployed, because who the fuck would even consider posting this shit from work?) Just because some are unemployed doesn't mean others are, or want to be. So the Shock Jock Crew can go back to posting wherever they used to post their super-funny racist and anti-semitic trash on. PS, i'm tired of seeing the same three guys bring up an issue which is now 23 years dead -- ebonics -- just because a black guy mentioned somehere in the article. It's just pavlovian racism -- "I see a black guy, I gotta say 'ebonics' because that was a good insult 23 years ago in 1994." Fucking enough. At least update your reflexive racial put-downs to the 21st century.

Not even a veil of ambiguity, just filth, and that shit never gets cleaned up. Don't think that your efforts to make the HQ a civil place are not appreciated.

Do you not think maybe there's something a bit wrong when the entirety of your joke is "these two guys are Jews, which is funny because of Reasons"? Do you think Jewishness is so obviously a source of humor in a person that the mere spotlighting of it makes for a good gag?

Next thing you'll know ... two little annoying developing Transformers crawling around the carpet while you trudge off to work on Saturday to pay for all that shit ... wondering how Ms. Robot lost the code to giving those tremendous blow-jobs yet got her mitts on all your investment accounts.

391 I would also explain that "white trash" doesn't have nearly the negative connotations, or horrific history, that the n-word does, but it's still a good idea for him to not use that term either. In fact "white trash" is IMHO more often used as a punchline, or a funny term, than a perjorative. Again though, that's my experience.

398 I certainly don't mind pounding on feminist dopes for being idiots but I do draw the line of explicitly sexualizing them for the point of a very cheap, very easily made by other means put-down. Maybe it's just me, but when someone goes to a really unnecessary place to make what he claims is a purely intellectual point, what I hear is him speaking from a very viscerally angry place and using the intellectual point as a pretext to say something that was boiling up inside him anyway. Let's try not necessarily to give too much of ourselves away, especially the parts of ourselves we're not proud of (or shouldn't be proud of).

Bush never stood up for himself, or his administration, nor did he ever criticize the #SCOAMF, so he can STFU about Trump, who hasn't done anything to merit the comments puss nuts made.

But there is a fair amount of it on twitter. And sometimes here -- the other day, I wrote about ben Shapiro and mentioned Jonah Goldberg in another post, and someone (some random n00b) said something like: "With all this talk of tribalism, don't you think Shapiro and Goldberg should identify which Tribe they belong to?" That was like six days ago, when I disputed Shapiro's post about no-platforming. I don't think this is an upsurge in antisemitism the way some do, but I do think there is a lot more willingness to come out and declare as pro-Nazi or anti-semitic. But yeah, I do notice that people who hate Jews are more brazen about just saying so now. So when some people start to make pointless references to Jews, I make a deduction from that.

Blaming Trump and not Obama for spearheading the raid? I do. If you're gonna blame one blame both. But RIP to his son, and I hope he finds some form of peace. Someone commented earlier. Seems dad is the only one in the family that is a professional democrat. Everyone else was ok with Trump.

498 Regarding the "white-trash" thing, not to go too far down a poorly lit alley filled with nothing good: "White-trash" is almost inherently a selective insult. Meaning "those whites" or "that subset of Whites". The "N" word (no, I won't type it out for obvious reasons) is more or less a universal signifier. "That class (and all members of it)". Despite Chris Rock's efforts on the stand-up stage, that remains a fact of American English. That's why I believe it's so much more strongly policed than other insults.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo It's also to make it possible for claimants against the estate to come forward so they can be assessed and cleared as needed.

Posted by: Skip at February 27, 2017 07:33 PM (HDU3V)


I am getting tired of this whole storyline.  It is a dynamic entry operation against a live enemy.  It was not "tipped off", it was the aircraft that woke the occupants.  It would have had a far larger defensive force or a secondary response group if the target of the raid had any clue it was coming. 

That women picked up weapons and started fighting would have been a surprise to the guys as the women normally run around being a nuisance. 

I drafted the narrative of two raids that cost US servicemen, one under Obama one under Trump.  The raid that killed MSG Wheeler 1st SFOD-D was not called a failure, the raid that killed Chief Owens is.  Both raids cost us, one of the most unique members of our society.  But the press never called for investigations in the death of MSG Wheeler.  It is Operation Embarrass Trump and the ROE is unrestricted.

The State Department has held onto its reflexive antisemitism, possibly because of the influence of the UN and the various NGOs that are attached to it. Head over to The Hague and go to any cocktail party populated by American representatives to the Criminal Courts and other UN bodies and you will hear casual antisemitism that matches anything from the far right or the far left.

581 just for general information: the cobs and I have long had a policy of not posting "sensitive" topics end of day or on weekends, because we get tired of having to patrol threads for ugly shit. That has turned into a general policy of not posting on some topics at all. people can either self-moderate some or we'll wind up restricting permitted topics to just five or six things. Seriously, people -- me, the cobs -- like posting stuff. WE HATE MODERATING AND DO NOT WANT TO DO IT. We would rather not post than spend time moderating. So please: Self-moderate.

I don't mean to suggest they don't exist, but in my part of the country I have never observed anyone expressing a hatred of "the jews" who wasn't absolutely crazy paranoid,  infected with leftist delusions, or dragging a big millstone of non-privileged race-grievance around with them all over the place.

Also, no conservatives at all ever  have I met, who were anti-semitic (if I don't count Paulbots in the earlier aughts who were much less in number than their comment section intrusions would have suggested, and I don't think anyone should count them.)

Anyway, I hope they catch the horrible rage-and-break-things people who delighted in the idea of bringing pain to others.  I can't know who did it, but  if they are somehow linked to Soros I wouldn't be surprised.

588 Most anti-semitism is from the left, but one of the big charges against the Ron Paul types was their odd mix of great economics and completely out there anti-Jew stuff. My small town had a few guys, Ron Paul types. They very earnestly would put together a small newsletter, full of great ideas... until the "renounce Israel and clean out all the Jews in government because Bilderberger" or some such. Still, I'd say it's a much bigger problem on the left.

I've heard of businesspeople from the PRC telling Jewish jokes, and they'd never met a Jewish person. I can't remember who said it (it might have been right here years ago), but it's like a black hole: once you cross the event horizon of hate, you end up at the singularity of anti-semitism.

592 i see anti-semitism nowhere in my real life but I have a lot of Jewish friends so it would be highly unlikely that an anti-semite would decide to tell me, out of the blue, all the problems he has with The Jews. But there is a fair amount of it on twitter. And sometimes here -- the other day, I wrote about ben Shapiro and mentioned Jonah Goldberg in another post, and someone (some random n00b) said something like: "With all this talk of tribalism, don't you think Shapiro and Goldberg should identify which Tribe they belong to?" That was like six days ago, when I disputed Shapiro's post about no-platforming. I don't think this is an upsurge in antisemitism the way some do, but I do think there is a lot more willingness to come out and declare as pro-Nazi or anti-semitic. But yeah, I do notice that people who hate Jews are more brazen about just saying so now. So when some people start to make pointless references to Jews, I make a deduction from that. Posted by: ace at February 27, 2017 07:36 PM (8rNrN) I agree that there is probably not an upsurge in anti-Semitism, but on the other hand I think part of the dynamic here is that people like Ben and Jonah and Bill Kristol get a lot of really nasty anti-semitic stuff in their emails and their twitter feeds. It's undoubtedly a small group of assholes doing this but my sense is that to Ben et al, it does not seem like a small group and they take it as an indicator of rising widespread Trumpian White Nationalism, or something. This dynamic is extremely unhelpful in my view. Not only does it not help to coax these folks back into the conservative mainstream which is now behind Trump (and where I would like to see them), but it pushes them as a reaction into equating pro-Americanism with pro-White Nationalism and anti-Semitism and leading them to see something sinister in something that is not.

Posted by: Skip at February 27, 2017 07:50 PM (HDU3V) The UK establishment is very anti-semitic. It's just part of the culture. The US left is very Anglophilic, so some of that bleeds over. And yeah, there's a lot of anti-semitism in the audit-the-fed-all-my-savings-are-in-gold right. Ace is right in that these people used to be kind of locked away, and lately they've been resurfacing.

I think there are enough of these guys pushing anti-semitic memes to these guys to make them over-react to the cause they blame for it (Trump, of course). As you imply, the numbers are sufficiently large to be a problem, yet still are kind of on the small size. I think some people think this is a much bigger thing than it is -- but it is definitely a thing of some dimension. Here's my main disagreement: I don't think there's any coaxing these particular people into the "conservative mainstream." I don't think that's possible. We all know there is a huge social and legal penalty to be paid for molesting a child, right? So if you actually molest a child -- you really wanted to right? It's not like you can be talked out of it. If the 30 years in prison and general moral horror of it wasn't enough to stop you, what can a few posts in National Review do? If Bill Bennett gives a real good talk at Hilsdale, that's gonna bring you into the non-molestation mainstream? anyway, there is obviously a major social (and sometimes even economic) penalty imposed for racism and anti-semitism. If you're still flying your racism/anti-semitism flags in the face of that, then you are... pretty serious about it, and I don't think you can be coaxed into any "mainstream," just as a jihadist can't be de-radicalized.

609 I'm fairly new to politics in depth (starting in maybe 2005).  So the whole Buckley purge thing still has me confused.  I'm of tame evangelical type background going way back, so Jews, orthodox especially, seemed like brothers in that they were usually more disciplined in basic Bible belief (except the Jesus part) than most Christians.

The purge I have since taken to be mostly about the neocons taking control, starting with the first Bush, along with his CIA friends.  Reagan was more an "America First" guy.  On the economic front, I think the Chicago school "global free trade will work out, deficits don't matter" was a ruse to back the globalists and multi-nationals.  That was the deficit spending, ballooning deficits and easy money policy that is dooming us now, which Trump addressed to congress back in 1990.  (how is Monty these days?)

anyway, guys like Buchanan foresaw the immigration problem, saw the globalization issue as a surrender of sovereignty.  25 years later we face the same issues, but the Buchanan nightmare scenario is realized.  We always stayed allies with Israel, so I'm unclear what that "neocon purge" was really about.  The actual anti-Semites are fringe on the right, dominant on the left.  They almost chose Ellison for crying out loud.

anyway, I still have a lot of that history to catch up on.

Posted by: garrett at February 27, 2017 07:21 PM (NXfyF) It's going to get worse. The left is realizing there's no downside to going after the "wrong" kind of Jews--those who are observant and support Israel. It's a short step from going after the "wrong" kind of Jews to all Jews. The Bible has quite a bit to say about the persecution of Israel and the Jews in the end times. Nikki Haley gave a wonderful speech A week ago about anti-Semitism at the UN. http://bit.ly/2mEwNdQ

619 I just want to be a little careful about attributing the desecration of the cemetary as a hate crime.

It's entirely possible its just plain old hate, and destructive impulse, of vandals with the choice of cemetery just being a way to amp up the shock and outrage of it for others,  and not necessarily some organized attack on a faith per se.

Awful people are awful, and vandals are awful people. 

Cemetery vandalism, if the collection of news reports available for the last decade are any indication,  is not rare.   Nor is it a major feat of organization to topple stones off of plinths, despite some argument to the contrary above.
In Philadelphia, a quick review of the pictures show that larger and harder to move stones remain upright, while the rockable ones that are either taller or thinner have been knocked off plinths.
Here is an example report of a past event where vandalism of similar nature and scale took place:  about 90 stones knocked off their bases. http://tinyurl.com/jkmmzg2


That's from 2015, reported by the Boston Globe, but there are similar cases over the past decade.   Cemeteries are vulnerable to this time of vandalism and it is NOT rare.

621 There are at least a dozen such stories I've looked at so far over a broad span of years.   Here is  one more link from 2009. http://www.wetaskiwintimes.com/2009/09/08/vandals-frustrate-city-staff , with repeated knocking over of a smaller group of older stones "They're an upright monument; apparently they're easy to knock over, but they're not too easy to stand back up again."

But there are many stories with large numbers of stones toppled over.  It's easier to knock stones down than to put them up.
