BB Gunman Fires at Jews in Baltimore on Rosh HaShanah

I have close friends who live right near there.

I think it speaks to my current mental state vis-a-vis anti-semitism that I’m breathing a sigh of relief that it wasn’t a real gun instead of being outraged at the fact that a hate crime was perpetrated against Jews on Rosh HaShanah. 

yes but take a step back and realize how truly fucked that is

"yes there was a gun crime but thank god it wasn’t a real gun this time, it’s better than normal!"

it’s not normal to be shot at at your site of worship, or at all

why is this our normal

It really shouldn’t be. It really shouldn’t. But between the shootings, the property damage, the assaults, the shops refusing Jewish customers, the removal of the Kosher sections, the continued denials that anti-semitism is an issue at all… My expectations for humane treatment have been severely lowered this year. This blog’s existence is largely a product of that frustration and disappointment. I’m worried that our “normal” is going to get a hell of a lot worse before a critical mass of goyim notice or care.

theyll never care, even if they ever notice

anyone know what this is from?

"Judgement Day" by EC Comics. From wikipedia:

The story depicted a human astronaut, a representative of the Galactic Republic, visiting the planet Cybrinia inhabited by robots. He finds the robots divided into functionally identical orange and blue races, one of which has fewer rights and privileges than the other. The astronaut decides that due to the robots’ bigotry, the Galactic Republic should not admit the planet. In the final panel, he removes his helmet, revealing himself to be a black man.

Apparently the Comics Code Authority tried to prevent the author from making the main character black.

Boy did they! It took the writer (and the company) threatening the CCA with a lawsuit and telling the guy to fuck off (literally) to get this thing printed: 
Comic Historian Digby Diehl recounted in Tales from the Crypt: The Official Archives:

This really made ‘em go bananas in the Code czar’s office. ‘Judge Murphy was off his nut. He was really out to get us’, recalls [EC editor] Feldstein. ‘I went in there with this story and Murphy says, “It can’t be a Black man”. But … but that’s the whole point of the story!’ Feldstein sputtered. When Murphy continued to insist that the Black man had to go, Feldstein put it on the line. ‘Listen’, he told Murphy, ‘you’ve been riding us and making it impossible to put out anything at all because you guys just want us out of business’. [Feldstein] reported the results of his audience with the czar to Gaines, who was furious [and] immediately picked up the phone and called Murphy. ‘This is ridiculous!’ he bellowed. ‘I’m going to call a press conference on this. You have no grounds, no basis, to do this. I’ll sue you’. Murphy made what he surely thought was a gracious concession. ‘All right. Just take off the beads of sweat’. At that, Gaines and Feldstein both went ballistic. ‘Fuck you!’ they shouted into the telephone in unison. Murphy hung up on them, but the story ran in its original form.[18]


You know, it’s times like this that I am deeply comforted, knowing that history isn’t just everyone being nice and polite and better than the current generation.  Sometimes it really is just people bellowing swear words over the phone to get shit done.

*grin* Can’t help being curious - do you remember which flirt you took?

With Corso? Oooh boy, that’s going way back XD I couldn’t find anything in my Fraps folder. What’s happened with this playthrough is pretty clearly a bug, like it doesn’t register if you end the “relationship” in one of the Chapter 2 conversations but just ploughs on as if he was romanced. The poor guy. It’s a shame, because he’s quite gracious and mature when you reject him. 

I haven’t dumped anyone (even the companions I don’t like) because I’m an awful powergamer, haha! Those affection points are worth CREDITS, darnit! Do you know if the other companions’ romance storylines can be cut off if you start romancing them and want to quit?

After I max out my Pub characters I may have to play another femsmug to see how Corso acts if you don’t romance him at ALL. Ugh… I just wish there was a way you could play through just THAT content instead of having to level up all over again. Especially since it’s really the only dynamic content you get! The class and planetary storylines, it doesn’t REALLY matter what you do - the story marches on no matter which options you choose and the changes are pretty much cosmetic.

OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA
According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.
Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE
They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE
some of the more reputable sources: x, x

Other sources: The Sydney Morning Herald    The Los Angeles Times

oh my god

Fuck

According to the LA Times, the date is Nov 2013. It also has references to other public executions.
