I fucking love this article. I really do. While it may seem to be prima facie dildo, upon deeper investigation it actually offers a surprisingly comprehensive list of reasons to keep you and yours away from the ink, all while presenting as super-duper progressive and open-minded. So, let’s go ahead and dive into these 4 “scientific” reasons to date a tattooed special ash-flake – er, snowflake…
The article opens by informing the reader that 4 in 10 millennials have tattoos, and of that 40%, roughly half of them have 2 or more. The obvious implication here is that getting inked is totally mainstream and therefore unremarkable, but never fear my fellow edgytarians, the article offers myriad reasons why having tattoos still makes you totally original and non-conformist.
If the casual red-pill knows anything, it’s that the media runs on a 24hr news cycle and will speculate (wildly) on anything. If TRS knows anything, it’s that the media loves The Narrative. We saw it in Sanford, in Ferguson, in Queens. Now it’s rural Mississippi’s turn.
Here we have Beck, a Mormon heretic who believes Christ (Jehovah) is a lesser deity among an infinite number of gods. Glenn is very dishonestly representing his views in order to whip up a frenzy among evangelicals who have a bumper sticker-level of religious understanding, who don’t realize that “Jehovah” and “God” mean vastly different things for not only Beck, but for the Jews.
Oh Alternet, you truly are the shittiest of shit-tier clickbait. Yet I keep falling for your monkeyshines, as you try to cover for the violent cyphers of humanity whose pathologies are best explained by white racism rather than tangible racial differences. Before I left for the courthouse on yet another court-appointed case of black violent crime I managed to get slightly triggered by this fine piece of shitposting.
We live in a time of unprecedented interconnectedness, mixed with atomized loneliness. This globalized individualism and excess of opportunity must be resisted with hand-me-down leftist bromides, mixed with some pictures of Nazi statuary and quotes from George Fitzhugh.
While I was chipping away at an article on the Rolling Stones’ Eric Holder’s never-ending farewell tour, the Department of Justice published their reports on the Ferguson Police Department, and oh by the way, they aren’t charging Darren Wilson with violating the Gentile Giant’s rights. Of course, the media immediately jumped on how Ferguson PD beez raycist because reasons, like how negroes are stopped, arrested, and charged more than their representative percentage (as if this somehow proves racism and not negro propensity for crime, but i digress). But what hasn’t gotten a lot of play is the concurrently published report on the federal investigation into Darren Wilson. Remember all those narratives? Here’s a preview. The word “inconsistent” appears 88 times! Coincidence, i think not!
Cledun’s recent article for TRS, “Novorussia, Atlanticists, And Ukrainian Nationalists,” argues that the Ukraine question is not a dichotomy, as is generally believed, between backing either the US-backed Kiev junta or the pro-Russian separatist forces concentrated in the Donbass region. Rather, Cledun claims that there is a third option and that this third choice is the correct one: we should support the Kiev-allied Azov battalion, which, as Cledun documents, has a strong nationalist, anti-NATO, anti-EU tendency.
This is a misguided position. There are three reasons: it is counter-productive, utopian (LARP), and unstable even in success.
I recognize that this woman is not seriously that retarded, that she is rhetorically signalling being totally above the brutal and backward concept of nationalism. It’s still unbelievably triggering. If there is one thing that brings my piss to a boil, it’s when people (usually women) substitute snark for stupidity when asserting their enlightened opinion. There are less obtuse methods for sticking your head up your ass.
