In this week’s Struggle Session the TRS Death Panel praise the great Augusto Pinoche Ugarte for his epic smackdown of international communism in his native Chile. Pathetic leftists myths and narratives are crushed with stubborn facts, and because Britain is faggots. Morrakiu brings us another brilliant Merchant Minute.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Augusto Pinochet, S. Truett Cathy and the career of Mel Gibson made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about liberalism and Nazism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Brown Scares designed to impress that anti-liberalism is tantamount to genocide. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Second War-era threat of Jewish annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about Nazism and liberalism.
I know there’s been a lot of hand wringing lately over the fate of jolly ol’ England and the real-world consequences of all that vibrant diversity getting imported into the ancestral home of so many of us. News stories about Pakistani rape cover-ups and British soldiers being hacked apart in the streets of London by lunatic Muslim extremists might trigger an instinctive sense of alarm or sympathetic concern for the fate of England, but seriously, fuck that country.
I am not known for environmentalism. “Conservation” for me is picking up after myself and not overfishing the local lake. I will recycle when it’s available, but I am not keeping up with those extra bins at home. That’s a headache and I have better things to do; dragoon those sickly Honduran children to recycle my shit for me.
Don’t get me started on the bizarre lifestyles greenies indulge in, like non-GMO diets or shitting in cat boxes or living in a closet. I already have a God I seek forgiveness from, and Thoreau was mediocre anyway.
I want to own an electric or hybrid vehicle like I want a haircut from an ISIL militant. I’m jonesing for a big ole’ diesel truck like every other red-blooded American male.
Sunday’s “People’s Climate March” in New York City prompted the Death Panel to convene, postpone their plans for this weeks episode and discuss the insanity. Unqualified Expert in Fucking Loving Science “Hateful Heretic” joins us and explains how to get your solar panel array to generate 1,488 jiggawatts of white power. Morrakiu blesses us yet again with another installment of The Merchant Minute.
There has been a recent barrage of talk radio and print media commentary regarding the Ray Rice incident and domestic violence in general. It is almost as if the commentators and general public have recently discovered the concept of domestic violence. This is nothing new. This would be a non-issue if it had not been for the video of Mr. Rice assaulting his fiancé. Some other NFL player got busted for whooping his son with a switch. They will probably root out a few other perpetrators of these “heinous” crimes.
An interesting thing to note is that domestic violence takes place every day and in all areas of the world. It is almost comical that a group of “professional” athletes are expected to rise above this shitty facet of reality. The NFL is the first structured environment many of these men have ever been a part of. Many of them have upbringings conducive to violence and/or are naturally inclined to it based on race (see Monoamine Oxidase A). These athletes are held to standards they cannot be reasonably expected to achieve.
This summer, the story on immigration began to focus on the surging numbers of unaccompanied minors at the borders.
From liberals, we heard impassioned pleas to welcome these increasingly teeming masses of children out of our bottomless compassion, and shaming language directed at the greed and selfishness of anyone who objected. From conservatives, we heard cautions about their possible criminality, dependency, and ill-health. From libertarians, we heard schizophrenia, on the one hand, acknowledgement of the growing burden of sheltering them while authorities decide whether to deport them, or increasingly, to welcome them as refugees; on the other hand, railing about the injustice of turning any away when “no doubt” (according to them) there are plenty of Americans willing to take them in as an act of private charity.
One thing that’s been played up to no end are the allegedly dire circumstances these children are fleeing. But while some of these kids certainly face dire circumstances, not all of them do; probably not even most of them. Most likely what they’re “fleeing” is a difficult, impoverished, but ordinary (by their standards) life.
Libertarians have been talking up the “open borders” argument with greater volume and frequency of late.
But this makes very little sense.
When liberals argue the point, I can understand, because they hate western civilization, and would like to see it destroyed.
But – by all rights – libertarians should want to see the things which make western civilization distinct preserved and even magnified, rather than attenuated and diluted.
