This is sad, Victor’s work on the series was flawless. 

Did I ever tell yall about the time I reaped a shit ton of reddit karma when someone was trying to impersonate me and this “bbw camgirl” sent me solicitations and i went on her blog and it turned out she was OD depressed and would cut herself mercilessly and then do the cam thing after like it was nothing??

The FBI caught a terrorist last week, but since he is not Muslim, you probably didn’t hear about it on the news.

Talbot is a white, radical right-wing conservative who was arrested by the FBI on charges of “attempted interference with commerce by robbery, solicitation to commit a crime of violence and possession of an explosive material.”

His plan was to rob banks to fund his revolution, and then also blow up mosques.

TECHTOPUS MASTER POST

What is Techtopus?

Private emails sent by Pixar’s president and co-founder, Ed Catmull, and found by Pando amongst court documents, clearly state that Katzenberg’s Dreamworks Animation was party to the same secret non-solicitation agreements that the Department of Justice deemed were illegal antitrust violations that served to suppress workers’ wages.

The short documentary above, produced by David Sheen and Max Blumenthal, is entitled Israel’s New Racism: The Persecution of African Migrants in the Holy Land. It shows how the driving force of Racism (White Supremacy)—anti-blackness—takes shape in the area of the world known as Israel.  Max Blumenthal is also the author of the book Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement that Shattered the Party. Consortium News described him as “[o]ne of the few journalists who won’t temper his criticisms” in regards to so-called Israel’s controversial practices. During Blumenthal’s interview with Consortium News, he reveals how the New York Times commissioned his documentary but without explanation, refused to publish it after reviewing the piece:

I was asked to submit something by the New York Times op docs, a new section on the website that published short video documentaries. I am known for short video documentaries about the right wing in the U.S, and extremism in Israel. They solicited a video from me, and when I didn’t produce it in time, they called me for it, saying they wanted it. So I sent them a video I produced with my colleague, David Sheen, an Israeli journalist who is covering the situation of non-Jewish Africans in Israel more extensively than any journalist in the world.

We put together some shocking footage of pogroms against African communities in Tel Aviv, and interviews with human rights activists. I thought it was a well-done documentary about a situation very few Americans were familiar with. We included analysis. We tailored it to their style, and of course it was rejected without an explanation after being solicited. I sent it to some other major websites and they have not even responded to me, when they had often solicited articles from me in the past.

It’s no surprise that major media outlets were not interested in focusing on the Racist (White Supremacist) activities going on in so-called Israel. The documentary shows virulent anti-blackness and actually frames black people as victims of an anti-black population. This runs counter to the Racist (White Supremacisst) perpetual narrative of black people as criminals but never victims.

In the video, we see how Racist Suspects and Admitted Racists revel in their savage treatment of black Victims of Racism. One female Admitted White Supremacist ironically describes her fear of being attacked by ‘psychopaths’. She proclaims to a loud and supportive crowd, “We’re racist because we want to preserve our lives and our sanity!”  Another speaker suggested that black people should be rounded up without waiting for governmental approval. This is another terrifying example of the hostility and terrorism black people must face around the world. Racists (White Supremacists) have turned the planet into a global cesspool where non-justice and maltreatment are a matter of course.

On the Town with the U.S. military in Korea

by Kevin Heldman

A mile or so outside of Yongsan U.S. Army Garrison in central Seoul, past the tourist shops and street vendors selling Bulls, Raiders, et al., apparel, past the Burger King and the newly-opened Orange Julius and down a series of narrow roadways packed with American soldiers who are falling in and out of scores of ramshackle clubs–Cadillac Bar, Love Cupid, Texas Club, Boston Club, the King Club, the Palladium, the Grand Ole’ Opry–is one of the 180 GI camptowns that exist outside of every significantly sized military base in South Korea. Or, in the clever catchy jargon of the 37,000 U.S. troops stationed here to help keep the peace–Downrange.

On any given night in Itaewon women prostitutes hang out at club doors soliciting GIs; one part come-on, one part contempt. An old Korean woman, hands clasped behind her back, spends the night strolling up and down Hooker Hill, approaching young GIs and asking “Lady?” as the GI, after questioning How much? and How old? follows her up the hill and down an alley.

In the club eight drunk GIs are huddled together, jumping on top of one another on the dance floor while next to them Korean women dance with each other pretending oblivion. A sergeant holds up his beer mug and says with made-for-TV despair, “This got me here, this is keeping me here.”

A Korean woman outside a hostess club is yelling at a young soldier, “Get out, get out of here.” The GI has his foot in the door, responding periodically with “bitch,” “asshole.” When he finally storms away she hisses after him, “Go home, your mommy will feed you.”

A GI is in the middle of the street with his buddies, pummeling another GI and screaming, “I’m your worst nightmare,” until MPs arrive.

A black soldier who’s a member of NFL (Niggas for Life)–a group complete with NFL baseball caps (banned by the Army command) and a member nicknamed O-Dog, who’s looking for payback over last nights brawl–is outside a club telling the story of how a short while ago some of NFL encountered a group of white soldiers sitting on the curb. The white soldiers made a mock plea for money (“Help the poor”). Words were exchanged. One white soldier used the word “boy.” A fight ensued and NFL “Grabbed that white boy by the throat and BAM BAM.” He demonstrates how the white soldier, dazed and wobbling, crumpled to the ground, as NFL tae kwon doed him in the face to finish him off. He told parts of the story over and over, occasionally interrupting himself with the exuberant, self-conscious pop psychology riff:”I had my sex tonight.”
