Report: Donald Trump Plans to Eliminate National Endowment for the Arts, Privatize Corporation for Public Broadcasting
Donald Trump's transition team is eyeing staggering cuts to the federal agencies that support the arts, humanities, and public broadcasting, the Hill reports. Under the team's plan, the non-profit Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which supports public television, public radio, and PBS, would be privatized. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), which offer grants for artistic and educational productions, exhibitions, research, and more, would be eliminated entirely. As The Hill points out, the proposed plan hews closely to a blueprint prepared by conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation, which has had an outsize influence on the staffing and direction of the new administration. Two transition team members reportedly discussing the cuts to arts funding, Russ Vought and John Gray, previously worked for the Heritage Foundation, and for vice president-elect Mike Pence. The U.S. has always trailed countries like Canada and

Everyone, everyone on this page should be blowing up phones and trying to shut this shit down. Not cutting military spending, no bail outs for corporations and major tax cuts. We’re saving money by shutting down the arts. And privatizing PBS.

This is absolute bullshit.

remember when mcdonalds debuted a horrifying minion-derivative mascot that looked like if focus testing and out-of-touch old white men in suits barfed in to a bucket and the bucket somehow gained horrifying sentience? and then when everyone said that it was godawful and terrifying mcdonalds official response was this:

like imagine working in marketing for a major corporation and being told by your superior to produce a clapback image for people calling your terrifying mascot a horrific demon. instead of like, just getting rid of it. 

of course, they couldn’t get rid of it. millions of dollars were spent in market research designing that godawful thing so they couldn’t just get rid of it over night. 

anyway that’s what’s wrong with capitalism or something. i lost interest in writing this post.

demands from a Jew to the ~free press of the USA~

this is probably going to sound hysterical. this is not the most edited post I’ve ever made. but a nazi movement is becoming normalized and I don’t have any more patience.

first of all, I know there’s no use directing what I’m about to say towards the major news corporations with any hopes of getting them to step up re: antifascist principles, because they’re corporations, they’re influenced by $$$ and the state and I know better than to expect my solidarity from them. I would never work for a big news corporation because I know a press cannot be “free” or uphold truth when it is so tied into corporate capitalism and the State. yes, I wish the big networks would comply with the demands I’m about to spell out, but I’m not under the illusion that they will. 

this post IS directed more realistically at any internet journalists (yes I’m looking at all you clickbait liberal journalism writers like huffpo and mic.com and buzzfeed, as well as every other smaller based online news source that gets tons of views and traction), grassroots journalists, freelance journalists, independent journalists, writers and speakers who get the opportunity to speak on bigger networks and have their writing submitted to major news platforms, etc. anybody involved in production of news media that cares about human life:

this is a call for you to 1. never normalize nazism, 2. refuse to downplay the danger and urgency of the recent spike in brash nazism, and 3. not give nazis a neutral platform. because the press has power to influence how people perceive events. right now, I’m seeing a lot of calm unaffected liberals in the face of a sweeping wave of fascism. and interviews and articles making it seem run of the mill are not helping. 

that means:

1. I want every news source to start saying the word “Nazi.” 

I am sick of “alt-right”. alt-righters are neo-nazis, white nationalists, white supremacists, and fascists. pls start using any or all of those terms. after all, those groups use those words to describe themselves with pride. and those words do accurately illustrate the danger the groups pose. the “alt-right” is a defanged and calmer way of naming the fact that there is a fascist movement on the rise rapidly in the USA that has had fuel thrown on it by the victory of the president Elect. 

to the extent that this has escalated, it is high time to take away the nicey nice language it’s couched in and call it nazism. that’s not accelerationism, that’s not overexaggeration, that’s the truth. when are you gonna start calling it nazism, if not now, when they’re rallying under the proud nazi banner in fancy D.C venues like the Reagan house? if not now, when they’re mobilizing in the streets and having parades and rallies? if not now, when they’re denying and debating Jews’ basic personhood (literally “are jews people”) on national TV? if not now, then when? when does “never again” start to mean shit to you? 

2. that means I don’t wanna see headlines like “meet the new dapper face of White Nationalism” or whatever the fuck it was. 

I don’t wanna discuss how handsome or polished or businesslike the latest outcrop of neo-nazis is. I don’t wanna see them sensationalized in any positive light, or normalized in cutesy headlines about their looks, as though white supremacist men are a quirky new govt fad in a suit. they are dangerous. a literal white supremacist nazi movement gaining power and mobilizing is a HUMAN SAFETY ISSUE. that means lives are at stake. they are responsible for not only hate speech and physical hate crimes against nonwhite people, jews, muslims, etc, and even the “just hate speech” FUELS that physical violence. 

3. that means don’t use “bias is bad” as an excuse to report half assedly or neglect to cover how serious and dangerous this is. 

some of these people are readily evoking hitler’s name. that’s not a joke, that’s not just some stupid extremists on the fringes, that’s thousands of people willing to evoke a genocidal fascist. 

when is this going to get serious enough for it to break through the barrier of respectability politics and neutrality? if you’re a journalist, do not allow that shit to become the status quo! don’t allow people to read your work in the morning paper with their cup of coffee without feeling some urgency! report on the effects and seriousness of it and don’t let it become the new norm! it doesn’t make you “biased” to report that literal nazis are mobilizing and gaining numbers, and to report that without glorification or sensationalism and with full honesty about the danger and severity. don’t support networks that do normalize it or couch it in calming, rationalizing language.  

4. that means if nazis show up and want to hold a “dialogue” about whether or not JEWS ARE PEOPLE, you don’t give them free reign to broadcast that "neutrally” and unchecked! because it isn’t neutral! and that doesn’t just mean you commenting semi-critically after you roll the clip. hate speech is not free speech. 

and if you think you’re gonna get in trouble for standing up to / denouncing these assholes on the air, if you’re more afraid of getting fired for standing up to them in an interview, or calling their rhetoric dangerous and fascist and declaring that a human safety issue, or treating it like the urgent news it is, then I’m sorry pal, I guess your reporting job is more important than human lives. don’t get me wrong, if you wanna be on that side of history, you go ahead and make that decision, you have free will to prioritize whatever you want in your life. but you will never EVER be able to claim that you did shit to help me or anyone else affected by this. this isn’t a game. don’t take a stance where you sit back and are complicit in making nazi views normal to a populace. 

@latkek​ you’re a leftist jew and you actually work with media and journalism afaik, whereas I just have a couple members of my family who’ve been in any sort of proximity, can you weigh in more coherently on what actions you think journalists should be taking? and weigh in on whether or not the things I’m asking are reasonable? (although honestly idc if they’re reasonable under normal circumstances because these aren’t normal circumstances, this is the time to fight back) 

Do remember what the essence of Donald Trump’s business is:

– he markets his name for real estate projects he neither builds nor manages. Rather, he is “Donald Trump” so that others can raise money for and build the projects. His only condition is to insist the project has to meet his “standards” of luxury. He is a shill for others’ wealth.

–he runs high end golf courses.

That’s it. He has no experience with big bureaucracies, global supply chains, or other features that CEOs of major corporations have. His job is to be “Donald Trump.”

That is what we are going to get going forward: a “leader” whose only goal is to present a facade others can use to get rich.

Great.

You know everyone jokes about how animators include all their fetishes in cartoons secretly but you know who did that with absolutely no joking at all is whoever came up with Super Duper Sumos

like when that shit got greenlight that dude went home and beat his dick for like twelve solid hours until chafing made him stop, you know he did, they approved his strongfat fetish show where there’s even a transformation to make the characters more strongfat

that dude lived the dream he made a major corporation pay him to make material for his own kinks

Look

Look. Look at this dork.

Look at how the CEO of a major corporation is flustered at the thought of holding a girl’s hand. 

Look at how he only wants to hug you—hold you and cherish you in this moment where he is certain that everything is all right.

Look at how utterly in love he is with you

anonymous asked:

I work at a major pharmacy corporation and we have coupon machines that customers can scan their cards at and get coupons. Sometimes when the machine is out of paper but I get too busy at the register to change it, I'll leave the door open so people can see it's empty and not try to scan their cards. The other day, someone walked in, went to the coupon center, saw the door opened and CLOSED IT before scanning their card. Then asked if it was down. You could see there was no paper in it! Why try?

1915 & WW1 Sword Exhibitions London-Ex Corp Major Eggleton R H G

Date of First Film: 1915
Location of First Film: Yeomanry Competitions – Hurlingham Club -London
Date of Second Film: World One Period 1914-1918
Location of Second Film: The venue for the second demonstration is not listed. However, the venue in film is a large sports stadium, which has advertisements in the background that suggests the stadium is in the London area. It also seems to be a military athletics meeting.
The sword demonstrations are performed by ex-Corporal-Major Eggleton of the Royal Horse Guards.

In the first film Eggleton using a regulation Cavalry sword cuts through a piece of wood held by two men. A celebrity in uniform, described as “Mr Holman James (Fred Lindsay)” holds an apple on the flat of his palm and Eggleton splits the apple with a single blow. He repeats the trick blindfold with James bent forward and the apple resting in the nape of his neck. Eggleton then uses a sabre to cut through with one blow the suspended carcass of a sheep.

In the second film Eggleton uses only a sabre. Firstly, he cuts a candle in half which is seated on a stool. Next, he chops a pole in half held by 2 other men. Then he uses the sword to cut paper held up by another guy. He then slices through a pack of cards which are on the top of a stool. More cutting exercises are performed using ribbon. Then two young girls stand before him leaning over with their heads bent down, a pole across their shoulders. Eggleton then cuts the pole in half. He then cuts small potatoes in half that are sitting on the outstretched palms of young girls and men. He does the same trick, only the potatoes are balanced on the necks of soldiers bending over. The second last stunt involves cutting a potato off the neck of a guy doing a headstand. The final cutting exercise involves cutting potatoes that are being tossed at him.

ODategumi(Odagumi+Dategumi) Mafia/major corporation AU

Souza- Financial advisor/tactician/industrial spy. Was brought in by to pay his family debt by selling his organs, but Tsurumaru discovered his talent in tactics and convinced him to work for the president instead. His brothers are sponsored with scholarships from the company but he knows that it is more of a hostage. In a light-yet-unfriendly rivalry with Hasebe for the right-hand man position.

Shokudaikiri- Head of Director @ Entertainment branch. Mainly in charge of casinos and prostitution business. Was brought up in a fine family and graduated prestigious university. No special backstory. He just works wherever pays him the best. Flamboyant, friendlYy, professional & ruthless.

Hasebe- Head of Secretary. Right-hand man of the boss. Dirty deeds done cheap. Will do whatever was ordered. However it is more of a sense of duty than true loyalty. From the same fraternity as Shokudaikiri. Has a strong dislike for Tsurumaru.

Ookurikara- Chief Officer of Security @ Shokudaikiri’s Casino. Born to a prostitute in one of Shokudaikiri’s districts. He brought him in to work as bouncer. Feels slightly repulsed by Shokudaikiri’s lack of morals but likes & appreciates him in general. Childhood dream: policemen

Yagen: Was known as a boy genius a few years back & currently works as the president’s personal doctor after graduating med school. Doesn’t consider himself as a part of the family & sees himself more as a spectator. Shows interest in Souza and his backstory. Willing to help him with whatever he can.

Tsurumaru- The president’s bastard son. Many know him as a party-hard brainless douche but is actually very cunning & plans to overthrow his father to become the head of corps. Has a knack for discovering others’ talents and was the actual person responsible for scouting Souza, Shokudaikiri, Hasebe, Ookurikara, and Yagen. He is recruiting them once again for his coup d'etat.

Don’t become an imperialist tool. Don’t become a pawn for major corporations, Don’t kill your fellow humans.

You might think that this limp liberalism is an underdog perspective, that you’re speaking truth to power by speaking that nonsense. You are not speaking truth to power - the military industrial complex agrees with you, so does every major corporation, the new US government agrees with you.

You are not speaking truth to power, you are power speaking.
