One lady, a smallish woman of Asian descent, has a sign tucked away.  Clearly of campaign type, it’s message is internationalist in flavor — “For Humanity’s Sake”, or something such.  I guess a rejoinder against Trump’s nationalist nativism. Standing apart from him, a hipster bearded bu

I’ve been somewhat grappling with this weird “Soviet Realist” school of artistic analysis I see in our cultural authorities — oh, praises fora politically spruced up and gun control preachy revival of Oklahoma on broadway, for instance… Apparently it’s not a crowd pleasure, but it is a cr

Matthew Yglesias points out what has always stung as strangely controversial and I can never browbeat… ignoring some inconvenient truths as we sunder from one election cycle to the next.

I.  Thomas Milan Konda’s Conspiracy of Conspiracies speaks of Lyndon Larouche in the present tense.  Which makes sense, of course — its proofs would have come in before his death.  But he also speaks of Webster Tarpley in the Larouche movement in the present tense.  In the distant past, I entertained the id

Flinting past, I saw they were giving away free vegan milkshakes.  I think it was over by the time I was flinting past, or rather in a stage of restocking.  I take the “Free Vegan Milkshakes … No Nazis” to be a curious ideological construct. According to the cops, someone might possibly have stuck quick

Leafing through this book, and I’m humstrung in argument. First, conspiracism exaggerates the “otherness” of one’s opponents.  This is fully in keeping with the Manicheanism of so much conspiracy thinking but can also show up in smaller ways.  Chris Mercer, who killed nine people at Umpqua Commun

Hm. But on Sunday, Ravelry, a popular website for knitters and crocheters, took a political stand when it announced that it was banning content that supports President Trump, in what it said was a resolution against white supremacy.

I see at the Huffington Post that the band Smashmouth is getting accolades for stepping with the commentary via tweeting — complete with apparent allusion to some song or video from their history — to the effect that if you’re supporting the “straight pride parade”, you’re one big loser.

1.  Seinfeld in the 1990s, exaggerating the reality of that moment, predicting the discourse of the future. 2.  As an aside, “alt right” (not that there’s any real clear definition of the term) power house Steve Bannon earns a share of the distribution for Seinfeld, so profits off of Seinfeld earnings. 3

I know that Jello Biafro for The Dead Kennedys has, in concert, has over the years changed the subject of the song “California Uber Alles” from Jerry Brown to Ronald Reagan to Arnold Schwarzenager — though Jerry Brown pretty well remains for what has to be the official song.

Hanging on a pole, or was until I took it down today.  It kind of feels like a joke, a trolling of the “progressive”, a mocking of minor gestures of solidarity as activism… but if it were… it sure would be a slight one…  And, (sic)… NO ONE SHOULD BE TOLD WHAT TO DO WITH […]
