Reader’s Links for March 1, 2021

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

Gad Saad gives the data points illustrating the path of dialectic negation

For me, item 14 is the most important because it is the one item where they tip their hand that this is not about race or sex or any other kind of identity, but is about a very specific method of preplanned selective enforcement of pseudo-rules in a dialectic process of negation of all Western thought and forcing the culture and the nation ever leftwards.

Compare and contrast rules 12, and 14 to see this in perfect relief.

12: It is racist to criticize a non-white celebrity

14: It is racist to celebrate or endorse a non-white conservative or non leftist such as Thomas Sowell or Candice Owens.

Boston Public Schools Will Suspend Advanced Classes Because Too Many Students In Them Are White Or Asian

Fourth, fifth, and sixth graders will not be accepted into advanced classes in Boston for the next year because a majority of students in those classes are white or Asian.

GBH News reported that the selective program, called Advanced Work Classes, will suspend enrollment in part because of the pandemic but also because of “concerns about equity.”

The school district analyzed the demographics of the program and found that “more than 70 percent of students enrolled in the program were white and Asian, even though nearly 80 percent of all Boston public school students are Hispanic and Black,” GBH reported.

“There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Superintendent Brenda Cassellius told the outlet. “There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be antiracist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

To borrow a gag from an episode of South Park, it appears the Biden administration will solve the immigration crisis by making the US a worse place to live than all the places people are coming from.

Mail in voting, kick out protesting, raping grafting Covid cop, police find way to stop streaming odious behaviour: Links 1, February 28, 2021

1. Sadiq Khan Demands Mail-in Voting for London Mayoral Election

(By looking at who does and does not want mail in voting, and ignoring the various rhetorical scams used to justify it, you can know with total certainty that mail in voting is a device used exclusively for an by the left to gain power where it otherwise in a normal voting situation would not happen. Its even more evident when the same people who want it for some elections, refuse to allow it in elections where their own interests are threatened, like Bezos at Amazon for example.)

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has called for the expansion of postal voting in the upcoming local elections, claiming that the “disproportionate” effect of the Chinese coronavirus on ethnic minorities and the elderly will reduce voter turnout.

Mr Khan has been serving as the unelected Mayor of London for nearly a whole extra year after the regular elections were cancelled in March of 2020 during the initial wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a letter to Constitution Minister Chloe Smith, Khan demanded that the government fund the distribution of postal voting forms to every household in the areas having elections this May.

“I am still concerned at the potential for low voter turnout, given the circumstances under which the elections will be held,” the mayor wrote, per The Independent.

“We know that the virus disproportionately affects Bame people, as well as older and vulnerable people, and we must ensure that they are similarly not disproportionately affected when it comes to being able to cast their vote.

“I welcome the government’s move to make it easier to vote by proxy and the publication of the Election Delivery Plan, but I urge you to go further.

2. A scene from Airstrip One:

3. Police getting ready to destroy the right of peaceful protest for the Dutch in the Netherlands. The right to riot however, for leftists and muslims remains intact. (Live at this time. Some is in English)

4. Ontario COVID-19 quarantine screening officer charged with extortion, sexual assault

TORONTO — A quarantine screening officer who allegedly demanded cash from a woman before sexually assaulting her at her home faces related charges, police said on Wednesday.

The accused had been trained by the Public Health Agency of Canada as a designated screening officer under the Quarantine Act, Halton regional police said.

According to a police statement, the accused was doing a quarantine compliance check at a home in Oakville, Ont., on Feb. 18.

“The accused informed the victim that they were in violation of the quarantine order and demanded that a fine be paid in cash,” police alleged. “When the victim declined to pay, she was sexually assaulted by the accused.”

Police said they arrested a man they identified only as Hemant, 27, of Hamilton, on Tuesday. He has been charged with sexual assault and extortion.

Police also said he worked for one of four private security firms hired to help enforce isolation orders.

The article continues on to not give the name of the security company, but they do reveal the “accused” goes by only one name.

(It is very important that we never know the name of the accused in case in some way it calls affirmative action hires into question. Reality is the enemy of the state as the truth is the enemy of the state since the truth will stand in the way of socialist utopian policies every time. So the truth must be quelled. The media must become narrative sellers and not seekers and exposers of truth. Truth, is hate speech. Consensus will be followed, and ultimately believed.)

5. ATTN: All of you who plan to video encounters with police which increasingly are illegal, unfair, and often even thuggish and brutal against legal protest while submissive and cooperative with far left extremism. The police now have a trick to make it hard to share. So read this article and film it anyway and start using other platforms. Let the copyright holders sue the police as THAT is where the blame should go, not against a person demanding transparency in his transactions with police.

Cops Using Music to Try to Stop Being Filmed Is Just the Tip of the Iceberg

Someone tries to livestream their encounters with the police, only to find that the police started playing music. In the case of a February 5 meeting between an activist and the Beverly Hills Police Department, the song of choice was Sublime’s “Santeria.” The police may not got no crystal ball, but they do seem to have an unusually strong knowledge about copyright filters.

The timing of music being played when a cop saw he was being filmed was not lost on people. It seemed likely that the goal was to trigger Instagram’s over-zealous copyright filter, which would shut down the stream based on the background music and not the actual content. It’s not an unfamiliar tactic, and it’s unfortunately one based on the reality of how copyright filters work.

Copyright filters are generally more sensitive to audio content than audiovisual content. That sensitivity causes real problems for people performing, discussing, or reviewing music online. It’s a problem of mechanics. It is easier for filters to find a match just on a piece of audio material compared to a full audiovisual clip. And then there is the likelihood that a filter is merely checking to see if a few seconds of a video file seems to contain a few seconds of an audio file.

(Read the rest at site. But the solution of course is to record, not livestream, or do both if possible, and then post at a platform that doesn’t have those filters.)

Thank you M., Oz-Rita, Wrath of Khan, ML., Richard, Michelle, MarcusZ1967, ET., EB., Johnny U., PC., Malevolent Pixie, Sassy and all who contribute to this effort in one or more of many ways.

Five fascinating videos on the state of things for February 27, 2021

1. Liberal government of Canada basically says women raped in forcible detention should view it as punishment for travel they were told not to do.

2. Women who left UK for the Islamic State, crying and upset the UK has not welcomed her home.

3. Pregnant Afghan woman is charged with arson after setting herself on fire at Lesbos refugee camp

A pregnant Afghan woman who set herself on fire in a refugee camp on Lesbos has been charged with arson and destruction of public property.

The 26-year-old, who has not been named, suffered burns to her hands, feet and head after the incident last Sunday on the Greek island.

The mother-of-three, who is expecting her fourth child next week, provided testimony to a prosecutor from her hospital bed.

She moved her two daughters and son, who are now being cared for by their father, outside the tent before setting it alight in the temporary camp set up after fires that destroyed the Moria site.

Her lawyer, Teresa Volakaki, told The Guardian: ‘Although she was in a lot of pain because of her burns and found it difficult to speak, the testimony at the hospital in Mytilene lasted for around two and a half hours.

‘It was clear she was stressed and having difficulty remembering but the prosecutor took a very strict line and ruled she will now face criminal charges, trial and not be able to travel abroad.’ 

4. Tucker Carlson does a special edition on the 1 year anniversary of Fauci and Pelosi’s walk around Chinatown and promise that Covid would never be a big thing.

5. South Dakota Governor: “South Dakota is the ONLY state that never ordered a single business or Church to close. Never ordered masks, never declared a business not to be essential. It was not Covid that crushed the economy, it was GOVERNMENT that did that.”

Irish citizen stands his ground against Corona tyranny: Links 1, February 27, 2021

1. Hard not to like this Irish guy. He is like a less polite version of that Canadian man in Toronto that made a video where he got the police to admit on Camera that we all have a right to refuse the test and the quarantine, and can take the ticket which will never stand in court, and just go home.

You can share that video directly here.

2. ANOTHER Canadian professor in imminent danger of being cancelled because she believes in freedom of thought and speech and says so on a PERSONAL blog!

CBC packages the story this way.

[…]

In a statement, the university said “serious concerns have been expressed” about posts related to systemic racism, sexual violence, gender, and colonization.

“We neither support nor agree with the inappropriate comments that have been posted to this blog,” the university said.

On Wednesday, the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship rallied to the professor’s defence.

The society, a group of Canadian professors headed by philosophy professor Mark Mercer, sent a letter urging Mount Allison to rethink its decision.

“The professor alluded to in the tweet is Rima Azar, associate professor of health psychology, and the comments Dr. Azar posted on her blog “Bambi’s Afkar” concern matters of public and academic importance, such as freedom of expression, university policies, the existence of systemic racism in Canada and teaching in a multi-cultural society,” the group said in a letter to Mount Allison.

3. HANNITY on Who did best with Covid, and WHO is actually in charge at the White House

Indian news has the same concerns:

(To be honest, the Biden admin feels like something that belongs as 3 episodes on the Drama set in the Roman era, I Claudius. The Senile Caesar while all the power players plot and plan around him and fictions are spun up for the public. panem et circenses in the form of a two thousand dollar per person cheque that is still in the promise stage.)

4. World Economic Forum deletes tweet showing the real agenda of lock downs after people start to realize that, yeah, it was the real agenda of lock downs.

According to many scientists, now that governments have learned they can frighten us into surrendering all our most basic rights, they will do it again in the name of climate.

5. Missouri County Authorizes Arrest Of Any Federal Agent Who Tries To Infringe On Second Amendment Rights

A county in Missouri passed a bill that authorizes the arrest of any federal agents who try to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of its citizens.

Newton County, with a population just shy of 60,000, passed the legislation in early February.

The text of the act – known as the Second Amendment Preservation Act – states that all federal laws or regulations “which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms” will “be invalid in the county.”

Section 4 of the bill is particularly interesting, as it states:

“Any and all federal agents trying to enforce the regulations listed in Section 1 shall be subject to arrest by the Newton County Missouri Sheriff’s Department;”

“(a) The Newton County Missouri Sheriff’s Department shall be given the full authority to make an arrest of any and all federal agents that violate state laws and enforce the regulations listed in Section (1).”

(As it is the left which is attempting, both covertly and overtly, both via legal means and by means of the culture, and by out and out fraud and censorship, to change the country in ways that would never be voted for, one can say with certainty that any civil war on any level that is taking place now, or is about to in more recognizable ways, is the fault of, and perhaps even the intention of the left.)

6. France:

Thank you M., Richard, ML., Sassy, Michelle, Malevolent Pixie, Wrath of Khan, Hellequin GB., PC., Johnny U. and all who sent in thoughts, links and analysis overnight and today so far.

Can anyone confirm this?
