The Hunger Masks

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and . . . then retreated back into their money . . . and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

I don’t know how many of our readers are aware of a famous and very successful series of books and movies from the last decade called The Hunger Games.

They’re SF stories set in a dystopian future where glittering technology exists in a feudal society. In fact that technology enables it. For the purposes of this post the following is a key plotline:

[The Hunger Games] universe is a dystopia set in Panem, a North American country consisting of the wealthy Capitol and 13 districts in varying states of poverty. Every year, children from the first 12 districts are selected via lottery to participate in a compulsory televised battle royale death match called The Hunger Games.

Capitol citizens are extremely wealthy and life moves very slowly until the Games,… Many Capitol residents are extremely shallow, always looking for ways to be noticed. An outrageous sense of style and fashion are very important to the citizens of the Capitol… Capitol citizens are noted to have quite high ranking and integral roles and occupations for Panem as a whole…

You get the picture.

While not quite as gaudy as those characters, the following is a great example of how the same attitudes are rampant among our rulers nowadays, as San Francisco Mayor London Breed, had fun the other day in a San Francisco nightclub. I guess she’s read some of these counter-narrative articles on masks.

What she’s actually doing in that video is announcing the new law that you do not have to wear a mask if:

  1.  You are “having a good time,”
  2. “Feeling the spirit,”
  3. Watching the reunion of a band you like.

BTW, she insists that the reunion of the jazz band, Tony Toni Tone, is the story here, and not her defying her own mask mandate. I especially loved this quote:

“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” she said during an interview, contending she was drinking at the time and started dancing because she was “feeling the spirit” and “wasn’t thinking about a mask,” according to reports.

The irony in that statement is so fucking thick you could cut it with a knife.

Perhaps SF citizens should keep that in mind if an actual cop (very much not “fun”) or some other asshole hassles them about wearing a mask. Maybe print out her interview answers on a card to show cops that the law has been repealed by the mayor herself.

This is nothing new of course, for in the past year the following has occurred:

California Governor Newsom at a lovely dinner with other unmasked rich people at one of the world’s most expensive restaurants, the French Laundry. The staff are masked of course, per order of the Governor.

Barack Obama’s 60th birthday unmasked bash with his celebrity friends at their home in Martha’s Vineyard. The servants wore masks.

Obama’s Party

Nancy Pelosi’s fundraiser in the expensive vine yards of California. The servants wore masks.

And of course, the Met Ball a few days ago.

These people either don’t believe their own bullshit about masks (and other things) or they’re glorying in applying those rules to little people who can’t fight back, at least not without ending up in jail.

Or perhaps what we Untermenchen should take from all these events is that they’re just deliberately rubbing our noses in this shit. That the whole point is to make it clear who the boss is: that the rules apply to us, not them, and they want us to know it.

We are ruled by terrible, unkind, incompetent, uncaring people. I’m tempted to say that they are evil people, not out of deliberation but shallow callousness.

Die MSM, Die – NZ Siouxsie Wiles edition (updated)

I’m going to put this post up even though I have absolutely no faith that it will have any effect on the likes of TV1 or the rest of the NZ media.

They are who I’ve always known them to be. Shills for the Left in general and now, with $105 million of government money in their pockets, whores for the Labour government.

However, since it is a blog that broke this story, and since I’ve always argued that blogs are needed as a counter to the MSM, this is worth supporting.

The story belongs to Cameron Slater at his blog, the BFD, New Zealander of the Year Siouxsie Wiles – Unmasked:

Please don’t go out and chat with a friend while you are out, Wiles said.

Don’t hang around and have a chat, connect in other ways. We’ve got phones, we’ve got Skype, we’ve got Zoom…we need to physically disconnect for a little while,” she said.

Stay away from people.

RNZ 18 August 2021

There’s more detail at the link about all the roles that Wiles has in advising the PM and her apparently huge media profile (never have I been more glad to be ignoring all this). Suffice to say that it sounds very similar to the case last year of British epidemiologist Neil “500,000 UK deaths” Ferguson, who got caught breaking his own lockdown rules by having his mistress cross London for regular bonking sessions. Something recently repeated by the UK Health Minister.

I expect these people to be hypocrites with double standards and rules-for-thee-but-not-for-me. In the USA last year Dr Fauci was caught at a baseball game yukking it up in close proximity with friends while a mask merely dangled off his ear. Beloved US Lefty icon politician, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was found putting a mask on for a group photo and then completely removing it as soon as the TV cameras were off. There was also California Governor Newsom’s maskless soiree at The French Laundry and Nancy Pelosi’s Napa Valley gathering of Democrat big wigs sans masks – aside from the waiters and the other little people servicing them of course.

So it goes with The Ruling Classes.

But at least in the case of Ferguson the British MSM had no hesitation in breaking the story. In NZ it’s different:

You may be wondering why it is The BFD that is making this public. The simple reason is that we are not part of the Prime Minister’s Team of $55 million. This story was given to 1News journalist Benedict Collins. After sitting on the story for five days he informed my source that they had spiked the story. The reason given was that it wasn’t a politician so there was no public interest in the story. Make no mistake, this story was suppressed by an editor at 1News.

As David Farrer says at his Kiwiblog link to this story:

If the person concerned with say an obscure ACT List MP (ie someone with no real power or influence), you can bet that TVNZ and all other mainstream media would be running this for days on end as a major story. But instead, they all ignore it.

Sure, David, sure. But do you expect them to change as a result of stories like this? DPF constantly links to them, providing them oxygen even as they die. There’s nothing to be done about the private sector MSM but the least a future National government can do is defund TV1, RNZ and NZ On Air. I assume that even Labour’s bribes will come to an end this year so we’ll see how many are left standing by 2023.

These people are not journalists. They’re Labour and Green Party operatives with bylines.

UPDATE

Ha ha. The other party has been identified. She’s Nicola Gaston, an associate professor at Auckland University. She’s been very outspoken about the need for hard lockdowns and that rules must be followed strictly.

She’s also a frequent contributor to NZ’s 21st century answer to The Listener, The Spinoff. Because of course she is.

These fucking people really do have it good in their insulated, self-protecting worlds where they get to tell everybody else how to live their lives with no consequences for themselves.

The North Face: an outstanding company

I don’t think I own any North Face gear, or ever have, though I do think their line of outdoor clothing is stylish.

Apparently the company likes stylish things across the board, especially those which let its customers know that it cares about more than just profits, but the Earth itself:

Innovex is based in Houston and has nearly 100 workers in the Permian Basin.

Each year, the company gets a Christmas gift for its employees. This year, it was supposed to be a North Face jacket with an Innovex logo, a company Innovex has ordered gear from in the past.

The company providing the jackets said The North Face doesn’t want to support the oil and gas industry in the same way they’d reject the porn industry or tobacco industry.

“They told us we did not meet their brand standards,” Innovex CEO Anderson said. “We were separately informed that what that really meant is was that we were an oil and gas company.”

[North Face said that it] “thoroughly investigates product requests to ensure they align closely with our goals and commitments surrounding sustainability and environmental protection.”

Take that you disgusting, Global Warming, despoilers of Gaia! Begone from our customer’s ranks! No more will our skiers have to be ashamed at wearing the same clothes as some deplorable oil driller. Virtue and purity hath returned to our world.

Unfortunately for North Face their management turned out to be pretty ignorant about their own products and it didn’t take long for somebody in the fossil fuel industry to strike back – but in an unexpected way:

The Colorado Oil and Gas Association has bestowed its first-ever “Extraordinary Customer Award” on The North Face, saying it appreciates the company for its abundant use of oil and gas.

“To have such a large percent of what they make, probably three-quarters of the mass they ship is actually our product. So, it’s hard to top the all-in nature of The North Face as a consumer of our product,” said Chris Wright, CEO of Liberty Oilfield Services.

Fantastic stuff and now a US state government, Louisiana, has made it official with a resolution passed last week, that recognized The North Face as an “extraordinary customer” of “the Louisiana oil and gas petrochemical industries.”

The resolution highlights the “symbiotic relationship between the Louisiana oil and gas and petrochemical industry and The North Face,” commending the clothing company for “utilizing vital oil and gas resources so important to our state.”

“The North Face continues to offer a comprehensive collection of high-performance outerwear, skiwear, backpacks, duffels, and footwear made with nylon, polyester, and polyurethane, all of which come from petroleum products,” the resolution reads.

Congratulations to The North Face for these well-deserved awards.

In fact I’m so pleased about this that I think I shall go and buy a new ski jacket, and while looking at the products in the store I shall certainly offer voluble and effusive commentary in commending them on their wonderfully high use of fossil fuels.

I’m sure their sales people and customers will also be pleased with my visit.

To each according to his needs

The second part of perhaps the most famous slogan of the Left in that is truly the world view of their philosophy that drives all the greater detail and polices.

Marx made the slogan his own back in the late 19th century during some huge fight with a moderate Left-wing party in Germany that he thought was insufficiently revolutionary.

I thought of this when news came the other day about this woman.

That’s Patrisse Cullors, one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter Burn Loot Murder movement and a genuine Marxist:

“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia (Garza, BLM co-founder) in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.”

To that end she and her comrades have certainly been successful beyond probably even their wildest dreams, having created a movement with real power, both in terms of cultural influence and following from that of course, political influence, since politics follows culture. This may have only shown up moderately in actual voting, but their influence inside the Democrat Party and the Biden Administration is considerable, judging by pronouncements by senior members of both. The BLM movement and their partners in crime, Antifa, serve as the street shock troops of the Democrat Party, just like the old KKK used to.

Culture also influences, and is influenced by, economics and BLM hasn’t doesn’t too badly on that front either, having raised some $90 million in donations in 2020 alone.

What’s happened to that money should be of great interest:

Michael Brown Sr., the father of the man killed by a Ferguson police officer, says he has received just $500 from BLM affiliates. Brown Sr. asked: “Why hasn’t my family’s foundation received any assistance from the movement? How could you leave the families who are helping the community without any funding?”

$500! Awwwww. It’s not really a mystery, Mr Brown. You and your dead son were useful tools for BLM and the Democrat Party, that’s all. Most organisations begin to exist for themselves sooner or later, and the more “revolutionary” they are the faster the transformation. But Ms Cullors has probably pushed further down this path than most of the rest of BLM:

Cullors recently purchased a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, California:

“A winding 15-minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewhat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre.

The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the … three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment”

“Property is Theft”

Nice. Very nice.

Sits on a 1/4 acre section too. In LA. I think that used to be a NZ thing.

As is the neighbourhood: Topanga Canyon, California, has a white population of 88.2% and a Black population of 0.4%, according to the 2010 census.

Not exactly the ‘hood, but then she’s probably quite conservative about crime – when it affects her. Everybody’s conservative about what they know best.

Or perhaps oppression secretly lives there and this is just Ms Cullors’s way of infiltrating some revolutionary thinking into the area. I’m sure her overwhelmingly Democrat-voting neighbours will be gagging to show off their anti-racist credentials at Ms Cullors’s dinner parties (assuming they’re invited).

Or perhaps the invites will depend on the area?

According to public records, this is just one of three homes that Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area.

(Cullors) also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes. … Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.”

Actually she’s just following in the tradition of other race grifters like Al Sharpton and Louie Farrakhan, but although they have their hypocrisies it’s not as vivid as when a Marxist does it. It also fits well with the wealthy little boys, girls and other children of the privileged revolution who cosplay as Antifa. Cullors is just keeping up. Good for her.

Still, as laughable as it is the hypocrisy of these grifters is hard to take, especially when they’re helped by Big Tech, who have done their best to dump links to the story from Facebook, Twitter and so forth, just as they did to the NY Post when it published the Hunter Biden story. The narrative must be defended.

“You are horrified at our intending to do away with private property. But in your existing society, private property is already done away with for nine-tenths of the population; its existence for the few is solely due to its non-existence in the hands of those nine-tenths. You reproach us, therefore, with intending to do away with a form of property, the necessary condition for whose existence is the non-existence of any property for the immense majority of society.

“In one word, you reproach us with intending to do away with your property. Precisely so: that is just what we intend.”

Sure Karl. But “the few” get that way by knowing how to work the system. And remember:

Nancy Pelosi goes full Fascist

Back in June 2020, as Burn Loot Murder and their Antifa friends laid siege to Washington D.C. with firebombs and fists, Nancy Pelosi was interviewed about the events on NPR’s long-running programme, “All Things Considered” and was asked about whether the National Guard and other military units should be bought in, to which she responded:

“Violence has no place and violence must be addressed….But there is no reason for the U.S. military to be called out for this.”

Washington D.C, blitzed by BLM, June 2020

By contrast, after the events of January 6th, here’s an interview with the Acting DHS Deputy Secretary, Ken Cuccinelli, where he stated that:

…. the last up of thousands of these troops was requested by the Speaker through the Capitol Police. She even wanted crew-manned machine guns in Washington. That was rejected. There’s simply no use for that in a security arrangement for a civilian undertaking. So some of this has gone beyond any legitimate security need.

In any normal, sane world she’d be forced to resign over this, but let’s face it, this is an entirely natural reaction from her and her ilk around the world. And as a Democrat she’s also fully protected by the MSM.

The likes of the National Guard won’t be deployed to protect you from Antifa/BLM – but when she thinks her precious hide is on the line….

“Bitch Set Me Up”

Given what has been discussed in these two recent No Minister articles:

TRULY CHILLING, NO OTHER INTERPRETATION!

… which covered what happens in Melbourne when you’re the wrong sort of protestor, and…

I DIDN’T KNOW I DID ANYTHING WRONG

.. which covered what happens when you’re the Left sort of politician (Incidentally I didn’t know that California Governor Newsom is Nancy’s nephew. Figures: that means there will be no prosecution because of course)…

… I thought the following might be appropriate additions to the debate.

First up is Andrew Grannie Killer Cuomo..

Jesus! You’d think he’d have got the message back in June about what the rules are. The real rules that is.

And of course when a giant dies…

And those folk didn’t get the quarantine treatment when they went back to Washington D.C., despite its “strict” measures because reasons – and shut up.

Rules are for the LITTLE people.

Incidentally I see that another grandma, Nancy Pelosi, is now going for the Mayor Marion Barry defence, otherwise known as “The Bitch Set me up”:

I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to…many times. It was a set up, and I take responsibility for falling for a setup.”

Wait! What? She “takes responsibility” for somebody else being to blame in this? Classic stuff. And she’s going to double down on this shit.

“I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up”

And naturally the online gangs have started up…

Yeah Erica. Don’t you know there’s an election to win this year against BadOrangeMan? We can’t have plebs sliming the most powerful Democrat in America and by extension her Party and Nephew who have locked down California for months. That would be electorally damaging.

Enemy of the People! Straight up. Nancy I mean. Not Erica.

And the cherry on top is that being from that part of California I’d bet Erica has voted a straight Democrat ticket every election for years. Wonder if she’s learning anything from all this?

Dream on White girl, Dream on White Boy

One of the things noticed about many of the BLM protests in the USA over the last few months was the degree to which they seemed dominated by White People, and in particular youngish White Woman.

To that end I present two little videos for comment.

First up is this White Chick who is right there in the BLM trenches confronting the cops. Black cops that is.

“Racism is a White Person’s problem. Racism is my problem. I need to fix this. That’s why I’m here”

You go girl. Nothing says that you’re fixing your racism by yelling at other people, especially Black cops. I note that the two cops concerned do the perfect Buckingham Palace Guard act in the face of her lightweight shite! Although I swear I saw one of them shaking his head slightly.

And then there’s this White Boy getting Blacksplained by one Shemeka Michelle:

“I don’t need you to tell me my life matters. I don’t need your privilege to tell me or to justify who I am in America. This is my country. This is my land. My ancestors built this country, so I’m gonna walk around here as bold as I want to.”

Woah! Way to fuck up The BLM Narrative lady. In fact Blacks like her are very dangerous to it, and it’s one of the few things that actually do matter to BLM. That also why the MSM prefers that videos like these don’t make the rounds and that people like Michelle stay silent in the shadows.

Given the low quality of American university and high school education now it’s very rare for these kids to be exposed to a different set of beliefs. Hearing Michelle talk may have been the first time they’ve ever seen anyone with a black skin colour giving them a strong dose of reality.

This man WILL never be listened to again

My PhotoBack on April 18, I wrote about the British epidemiological “expert”, Neil Ferguson, whose hopeless chicken entrails computer model, had led the British Government a pretty dance on dealing with the Wuhan Flu.

The article pointed out that his models had provided similarly catastrophic predictions of death and destruction over the past twenty years with things like CJD (Mad Cow) disease, Foot and Mouth, Bird Flu, and Swine Flu,

Based on all that, I made the point that:

THIS MAN MUST NEVER BE LISTENED TO AGAIN
 

Well it now turns out that this guy, the “gold standard” of disease modeling, according to the New York Times and Washington Post, never actually followed the rules he lectured everybody else about following:

On Tuesday night, we discovered that the furrowed-browed scientist, who has been at the Prime Minister’s side throughout this crisis, is in fact Austin Powers in a lab coat. He’s been having an affair with a 38-year-old married woman who travels regularly across the capital from her home in south London to spend time with him.

What.
A.
Prick.

He’s resigned now, and with any luck will never be heard from again.

Now I have to admit that the lass making the booty calls – pictured here with Ferguson –  probably is worth breaking a few rules for, and were it anybody else NOT in a position of authority I’d probably be cheering the couple on as they gave the fingers to the Police State.

But of course that’s not who he was. As the article points out, this was Professor Lockdown, the guy telling 66 million Britons they must remain in their homes to protect the NHS and save lives (sob).

I also liked this quote:

Why is it that the most zealous advocates for reining in human behavior, whether it’s in Prohibition-era America or the midst of a public health crisis, always get caught with their pants down? I’m reminded of something the late Christopher Hitchens said:

‘Whenever I hear some bigmouth in Washington or the Christian heartland banging on about the evils of sodomy or whatever, I mentally enter his name in my notebook and contentedly set my watch. Sooner rather than later, he will be discovered down on his weary and well-worn old knees in some dreary motel or latrine, with an expired Visa card, having tried to pay well over the odds to be peed upon by some Apache transvestite.’

But like the writer I’m less concerned about the pathetic double standards than about what this actually means about our society – and who rules us:

It deserves the frontpage treatment it is getting today. For Ferguson’s booty call with his married lover actually reveals a great deal about the 21st-century elites and how they view their relationship with the masses. It’s one rule for them and another for us. They can carry on enjoying sneaky freedoms because their lives and jobs are important; we can’t because we are mere little people, whose silly work lives can casually be disrupted, whose love lives can be turned upside down, and whose families can be ripped apart. The Ferguson affair provides an illuminating insight into the new elitism.

And this regarding “experts”:

The Gospel of Ferguson is really a story of the confused relationship between politicians and experts today. Instead of our elected leaders deciding what is best for the political, economic and social health of the nation, and then employing experts to ensure this vision becomes a reality, we have politicians who bow too cravenly to experts and outsource political authority to them. And so, as some commentators have pointed out, Britain currently feels like it is being run by scientists. That’s bad for politics, which becomes less democratic the more that unelected scientific experts get to make the major decisions, and it’s bad for science, which risks becoming politicised under this pressure to guide the nation. Ferguson bought into the political use of his work. He backed the lockdown. Ferociously.

Fuck them. And the horse they rode into town on.

#MeToo Movement Achieves Room Temperature

My Photo

#MeToo passed away in early April 2020, at the age of 14, after a long fight with multiple diseases including hypocrisy, double standards and mediocrity, which had plagued MeToo since birth.

Born in the USA in 2006, and in spite of suffering ongoing recurrences of the diseases, #MeToo quickly developed into a powerful weapon for damaging and even destroying Right-wing people in the USA.

As recently as 2018, #MeToo appeared to be recovering and even gaining strength with heavy, round-the-clock doses of the new Christine Blasey-Ford treatment, which also included copious amounts of virtue signalling, colourful, ritual dances and loud ululations displaying the moral and ethical superiority of the carers.

Sadly however, despite being carefully watched and nursed, #MeToo appears to have been infected by the new Tara Reade virus, after which the patient declined rapidly.

However, while Democrats and other Left-wingers were largely ignored by #MeToo in the beginning, increasingly prominent members were being targeted and stories have begun circulating that MeToo’s death may have also been the result of interventions by multiple euthanasia practitioners, including:

Byyyeeee Woody!

.

.

.

The Democrat Party;

.

.

Senior Democrat Politicians;

.

.

.

Feminist activists, particularly in the Media and Hollywood industries;

and the MSM;

Joe Biden did 19 interviews spanning nearly 4 hours in the 5 weeks since March 24, the day a former staffer in his U.S. Senate office came forward to accuse him of sexual assault. None of the 142 questions asked by his interviewers have been on the allegations by Tara Reade.

Investigators into #MeToo’s death believe that there may be a connection between all of these #MeToo carers and Joey “Fingers” Biden. When finally asked about this from his home in Connecticut via Zoom, Biden responded by saying:

We need to be talking about the 600,000 Americans who’ve been killed by the Wuhan Flu and the 150 million killed by guns. And I’m gonna push that conversation by getting on TV and talking about this crisis just like good ole’ President FDR did in 1929. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate and I’m focused on getting out the votes here in Iowa on Super Thursday by getting on TV to talk about how, for a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets the facts. I mean we hold these truths to be self-evident and all men and women created by – uhhh – you know – you know – uhhhh – the thing and. … uhh… and …. us….and… uhhh…. and… I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts,….

The interview ended when Biden wandered off-screen and the feed was cut.

Biden has vowed to fight the accusations by selecting a women to be his VP, and to find that woman he has picked his old Senate friend Chris Dodd to head up the search team. Dodd and famous Senator, Ted Kennedy, were friends and their high-spirited, fun-filled times with young woman in Washington D.C led them to be celebrated in Democrat circles as the “Waitress Sandwich Brothers“.

#MeToo’s mother, NOW, could not be reached for comment on this, but was last reported sobbing in her hospice, having never recovered from an encounter with a Presidential cigar in the late 1990’s.
