Like many of my fellow white, cisgendered, patriarchal sci-fi geek oppressors, I blithely skimmed over the explicitly racist, genocidal attitudes of H.P. Lovecraft while reading his work without giving it a second thought. Thankfully, I have been rescued from my willful ignorance by the educational materials provided in a certain youtube video, created by a creature that in no way resembles a terrifying Lovecraftian abomination itself. Apparently Lovecraft was an anti-Semitic, genocidal lunatic who fondly enjoyed Mein Kampf and professed his glowing adoration of Adolf Hitler. The scales fell from my eyes as dizzying accounts of Lovecraft’s racism extended far beyond the infamous “Nigger Man” housecat from “Rats in the Walls.” Quite simply, I had no idea that Lovecraft’s fanatical racism and xenophobia permeated every iota of his work, like some pernicious, otherworldly plague.
A semi week-off for the Shoah, we present to you material that wasn’t included in previous episodes, along with a brief intro by the Seventh Son. Also, as always, Morrakiu brings us a new episode of The Merchant Minute.
The Daily Shoah will return to normal next week.
Most people understand that Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever is super God-damn serious, even if they’re just hearing about it for the first time. It makes your cells explode and you die quite literally covered in bleeding sores, crying blood and shitting out your own intestines. So people naturally have questions like: Why isn’t there a vaccine like polio or smallpox? Why is there no treatment at all? Why the fuck aren’t we funding research on this? (Author’s note: you really don’t wanna know about research on this.)
Above all people want to know, who is to blame?
Breast cancer research receives more funding than prostate cancer. If the sordid reports of Susan G. Komen pocketing a large portion of the donations are true, I imagine that may have something to do with cancerless boobs not being given to you. Viagra being a boner pill was a surprise; it was originally meant to treat hypertension. Turns out, it’s easier to make a wiener move than to beat cancer. #sorrynotsorry
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.
