Libya

So, the stories of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt, being beheaded broke. It sent shock waves through the world. Not ones that cause for outrageous outrage and shit-sandwich think-pieces, but the kind that of makes everyone be quite.

Noah Rothaman wrote this, now a haunting foreshadowing, on the speed at which a global jihad grows and how the media down plays that very real fact. He gave it scope and scale. I highly recommend reading his analysis.

You young millennials find yourself, in a fight you didn’t start. Your enemy doesn’t care that you don’t care about them, it’s a non sequitur.

This particular atrocity occurred in the very country where then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, had an embassy over ran. It’s in the place where America had it’s first foreign incursion. If you can’t see the symbolism, you’re probably daft.

So what do we do? Hang the President out to dry and totally ruin our foreign policy or act?

I say we act, the president is lame duck. Let him quack. “He needs to stop this”, is what the next presidential Democratic candidate is telling this current administration. And the next likely Democratic candidate is the very former Secretary of State, who mismanaged Libya, to begin with. I can’t imaging she’d want the issue bogging down her campaign. I’m almost positive Mrs. Clinton doesn’t want to inherit this regional clusterfuck. She has enough to worry about with her accepting money from foreign governments and sending insecure emails. That damage control is a handful. 

Update:

The Egyptian military plans to hit the militant Islamist in Libya who beheaded Egyptian civilians with airstrikes.

Creating a new buzz phrase “Arab Neocon. Coined by the Middle Eastern consultant and a driving force behind the “Arab Spring Manifesto” in Norway, Iyad El-Baghdadi. 

 These “Arab Neocons” want to institute political, social, and religious reform but without due process – imposed through force and money.-Iyad El-Baghdadi.  

Update: the situation is still pretty bad, new factions are conducting airstrikes in Lybia.

Throwing A Flag

So you tweet. But to whom, should be ones first question. Context is key.

Then there’s the matter of who you follow and who follows you. I’m sure there’s a multitude of apps that can track that nonsense. However, that’s after the fact. To understand it you have to understand the process of shaping the narrative. But also, understand a newly vertically integrated media and how to plant the seeds of that narrative. Seeds, if you’ll follow this writer’s logic for a moment, that are planted on both sides. The media has turned social media, namely twitter into a tool, to create news. It can ignore real news, by focusing on the narrative they have created.

This formula is played out perfectly in Missouri. Some former prosecutor decided to throw her hat in the ring nearly 2 years ahead of the election. She raised staggering amounts of money early, for a gubernatorial race. She was hit with the force of a Media Mack Truck. In lockstep, by the Left leaning Missouri media, who had turned on the women. They stuck out their chest. They had taken back feminism for women.

This is to remind us of rape culture. A gaffe, from 2012. This is the New School. It was like clock work with that knee-jerk Akin reference.

We’ll see…

This is the original. What’s with the cigar? And the Akin reference? That’s where I throw this flag.

Hanaway, got hit hard by the left–that’s not my problem. It’s her fault for not combating this on social media. However, I’ve had it up to my gawdamned eyeballs with this hypocrisy and false narratives. They hammer a local women and ignore open slaughter and sale of women globally. Why? Maybe it helps the White House–I don’t fucking know. Is this thinking globally, acting locally?

Why would they miss this brutality if they were so dedicated to fighting a global war on women?

Maybe because of their funding? I dunno.

It was an issue brought up poorly by Tim Jones.

He was pointing to your pathetic inconsistencies. You have none of my respect, @ JMaz. I’m not paid to defend anyone, but I will speak up for women being turned into property. While you attack some one who has actually stopped sexual predators, great fucking job. I’m sure sex slaves in Northern Nigeria and Syria are impressed, with your fight against the war on women.

Follow Up: The Cogency

In my previous post I discussed discussing Ferguson with my fellow Americans and a Canadian. Now, a Psychiatric Social Worker.. A little old lady is being snarky. Our saga continues.

This was my response to Miller, an alleged comedian. Who’s platform is facebook. Who had called me stupid, upon me answering a very benign question, in a calm way.

Okay.

Miller:
Dude, you came with right wing bullshit talking points…what did you expect to happen
(“Dude”.. He’s so edgy.)

Right bullshit wing” talking points? It’s a puff piece from 2008. It was about McCulloch, the prosecutor, who this man never names. He’s attacking McCulloch as a racist, but when I point out he actively helped get the first black president get elected, it was called “bullshit”.

How is it is a right wing talking point? It’s just a fact. McCulloch is pretty mainstream. I was fucking asked my opinion you asshole. See the fucking question mark!?

————> ? <———– this warrants a response, I gave one you fucking moron.

Who asked me? A good natured Canadian. I’ve always been able to discuss these tough topics with civility with him. He may be a fake account, I don’t know. But this is how it transpired.

Canuck:

The gloating and the fact that right away people were siding with Wilson even tho we didnt have all the facts was pissing me off

Brown was dead…not injured…or wrongly jailed but he was dead.

Me:

I wish he wasn’t.

Canuck:

What I truly dispise is the systemic way of right after a black dude is shot the media is looking for dirt to put on that guy…to my canadian ass…thats sickening.

Me too, he probably knew I was frustrated myself. Not probably—definitely, I told him I was.

It wasn’t meant to be an ambush, but it felt like it at times. It devolved immediately.

Later an older lady said this:

I’m having a heart attack from the surprise.

Way it goes sometimes. Hope she’s okay.

Remeber white progressives, you’ve been asked not to speak on the matter. How ya feel about that, psychiatrist? They’ve basically told comics not to work. How’s that feel Ross Miller?

What’s Your Fucking Point?

So, I got drawn into an international discussion about Ferguson. Someone, who I’d been familiar with “tagged me” into a post, I frankly didn’t care about. But this person, a Canadian I’ve mentioned before, in previous posts, is usually good for stimulating conversation.

His opener was:

Wow, Grant is a special kind of stupid, huh?

This is why you’re an idiot, Grant

From 2000-fucking-thousand miles away.

This was what it came down to, this question and about 30 others this person ignored. Me being stupid, racist, blind, a liar, and “not shit”— for not echoing the herd.

In the true spirit of understanding.

Is this getting good material for your standup? Do you think this will do well at the clubs? Will Mike Brown’s death bring you good stand up material? Glad you could capitalize on this tragedy.

Once, I dispensed with his narrative filled with fallacy, he reminded me he was comedian.

And Grant…this is my fucking stage! This is my page…and if you don’t like what I am posting and cannot come correct than shove it up your ass and move along.

You ain’t my fucking friend and I don’t need to suffer your ignorance and bullshit

Well, this is my blog, so, you’re going to be framed as an opportunistic, unoriginal asshole.

Then block or delete.. My shit is quite correct. This isn’t my first rodeo with sanctimonious progressive west coast assholes lecturing me on my state government and calling it a “debate”.

Oooohh yeah, now you’re just a guy trying to make a living as a comedian. An artist. And I’m bullying *you*. We know you’re creative and open minded, everyone is really impressed. You opened with calling me names and tell me to leave… Maybe you just suck at your fucking job? How about that?

This conversation wouldn’t go down like this in real life.

Then it got into political affiliation and Missouri Election Laws. Because I chose to reveal my familiarity with the election process and the local politics.

“What kind of bullshit is that? They don’t ask your political affiliation to work a polling station. What the fuck are you talking about?” – alleged comedian, Ross Miller

Called me a racist and a liar, a dozen times.

Yes, Mr Miller they do…

Is this a revolution starting? Has this place, St. Louis, been chosen? Is this where real revolutionaries dig in and start slugging it out with the true might of the American military apparatus? Lambs to the slaughter, believe it. This is not a machine designed to turn on it’s own. It’s just a machine that ensures our interests abroad

Well, I must say.. The larger ‘revolution’ picked a sorry spot to pick a fighting front. It’s facing actual combat vets in a vital American metropolis. Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty is this justification for warfare? No, it’s fucking not.

This felt like an ambush… Like, I was marked as a Missouri rube, who couldn’t speak for my state or community. That’s the real problem with the optics outside of St. Louis. Elitism and belief that anyone not completely calling for the immediate death of Darren Wilson, is complicit in some sort of grand conspiracy. It’s a reverse progressive Benghazi, they just won’t stop. “It has to be this narrative, it just has to be.” It’s almost like their mind can’t fathom anything else. He wanted my attention, well here it is:

IMG_1185.PNG

These were my parting words:

You’re talking about you’re pathetic stage, while I’m talking about my home. Would you do this to a Palestinian who opposed Hamas? Because that’s the moral equivalency touted everyday.. Same struggle. Blah. Blah. Blah.

He called me obsessed, like I some how was mesmerized by his comedic genius and it put me into a trance of seeking his approval, the nerve of these fucking people, really.

I corrected my typos, I’m soooo obsessed, I’m probably like Buffalo Bill.
Or I’m choosing to engage you while I’m bored at my in-laws enjoying my wonderful life.
You kept pushing with more and more hateful rhetoric, in the face of a cogent exchange between Stephane and I. You deserve everything you’ve received.
You haven’t answered one question. And this isn’t your stage, it’s an 8-lane highway of communication. Probably shouldn’t play in traffic Ross. It’s not a game to some.
I bet you love the Vice live-streams and think Bassem’s bombastic nonsense is insightful and real.

You made someone’s blog Mr. Miller, pat yourself on the back.

You are no different than the Al Sharpton’s of the world, only seeking to benefit from others misery. You’re apart of the professional grievance industry, Mr. Martin. You disgust me…
